(Sept. 28 and Sept. 30) Slanted Hole Cases Bring Indictments Stamford Boy May Be New Polio Victim Another Stamford boy Friday night appeared to be the definite victim of polio. Authorities at Hendrick Memor- ial Hospital said that Stuart Brent Bolding, 6-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Dempsey A. Bold- ing of Stamford, apparently is the victim of the disease. Tests have been administered to determine whether or not the child has the disease, and the spokesman said that it probably will be Saturday before it is of- ficially confirmed. He said diag- nosis Friday was that the young- ster had polio. If the Bolding child has polio, tie will be the eighth victim in the Abilene area and the third case from Stamford in recent days. The two Franklin children from Stamford were reported in "good condition" Friday at Hen- drick Memorial. Another case is still not con- Firmed as polio, the spokesman said. In recent years the Abilene area polio cases have soared. A total of 53 cases in this area were reported by authorities at Hendrick Memorial in 1937.

Ed Connally scored a 25-20 vic- tory over incumbent 24th Senato- rial District Committeeman Mau- Brooks Friday at a caucus to see which of the two Abilenians the Taylor County Democratic del- egation would support for district committeeman at next week's state convention. Brooks declared afterwards that the defeat at the caucus end- ed his campaign and that he hop- ed his supporters would drop the accept the verdict 100 per he said. "This is the end of the campaign on my behalf and I hope by anyone else." Connally thanked the 45 dele- gates for turning out and for his victory. The candidates had agreed in advance to hold the caucus, with the loser to drop out of the race. The vote is not binding on the Taylor County delegation, since the only official caucus is on the floor of the state convention in El Paso next Tuesday. Frank Har- dcsty of Big Spring also is expect- ed to be a candidate from the 13- county district at the convention. One delegate declared alter the meeting broke up: "Well, I'm glad that's over. 1 think it was a good idea to get this thing settled before we got to El Paso." But two other delegates indicat- ed it wasn't all over.

"Both are good men and good Webb said, referring .0 the two candidates for state committeeman, "b u t whoever wins here will still have to run .he gauntlet in the district." But district committeeman is not the really important job, Webb declared. "The Republican Par- :y in Taylor County is united and doing a hard job. This position (district committeeman) is im- portant but not nearly so import- ant as Governor and I hope we can go out of here united." Neither Brooks nor Connally used up all of the five minutes each was allotted for speech-mak- ing before the vote was taken.

Kennedy said these charges were brought against the Strouds: counts of violating the Con- nally Hot Oil Act by shipping con- traband oil in interstate com- merce. counts of filing false state- ments with the Federal Petroleum Board at Kilgore, Tex. counts of filing inaccurate and untruthful reports with the Federal Petroleum Board. counts of conspiracy to vio- late the Connally act and the Fraud and False Statements Act The grand jury charged the Strouds with shipping more than barrels of contraband crude oil in interstate commerce be- tween July 1959 and July 1962. It said the oil was taken from Well No. 1 on the J. H. Henson estate lease in Rusk County, Tex. The defendants were accused of causing to be drilled on the Hen- son lease a well which slanted south and west into an oil produc- ing formation underlying another lease in which the Strouds had no interest. They then caused contraband oil to be shipped monthly in inter- state commerce and covered up the unlawful character of their transactions by filing false state- ments with the Petroleum Board and the Texas Railroad Commis- sion, the grand jury charged.
