J. Ful- wiler Sr., one of Abilene's gen- tlewomen. Everthing happened at once, as everything so often does. There was no tune for lunch so Mrs. Fulwiler had picked up some ready-fried chicken and taken it home, to the new home in which she is newly estab- lished at 2825 Ivanhoe. It was about time for bridge with her regular foursome. A yardman was needing at- tention. The doorbell was ringing and the telephone, too. A serviceman delivered her car from the service station. She went from one call to an- other. Then Mrs. Fulwiler found a moment to eat a bite of lunch. She couldn't find the fried chicken. It wasn't in the kitchen or the bedroom. It wasn't even in the bathroom. It wasn't inside the house or out. But she finally found the sack. In a garbage pail. She looked inside. There were the bones of the chicken. Clean. But her eating amid -crisis- without knowing is no worse than her sister, Mrs. L. B. Pow- ell, did, Mrs. Fulwiler says. "She went to the grocery store one tune and discovered she had lost her Mrs. Ful- wiler recounts with delight. Mrs. Powell looked all over the store and looked in her car and she went home and search- ed the house and couldn't find her purse with the it con- tained. She gave up. Then she got hungry. She went to the refrig- erator to get something to eat. "There she found the purse. Refrigerated." Emily McDonald, 9-year-old of Medical Dr. and Mrs. Donald McDonald, was writing a let- ter to her parents while they were in Europe a few weeks ago. Father and Mother had left the envelope addressed and stamped and the paper ready but it was a big sheet of paper and Emily went over to the T. C. Campbells Jr. for assistance in filling all that space. "Where are your mother and dad the Campbells ask- ed. Emily pondered. "Well, it's some town that sounds like an she The Campbells named cities. They named every city which might be on a European itiner- ary. None sounded like an an- imal. Then they thought of one more, they suggest- ed. "Why, Emily said. "That's right, Hamsterdam." Dr. J. W. Young Sr., long- time Roscoe and Sweetwater physician, is not one to bow to the years. He has been quite interested of late in the health of small pecan trees he is pampering. He was disgusted to discover the other day the weeds had shot up around them since Sep- tember rains. He was even more disgusted to discover that, at age 82, his shoulder muscles aren't what they once were. He had trouble chopping the weeds. So, a man of action, he went to a hardware store, selected a piece of pipe and had it cut to precise measurement. He went home and attached it to one end of a clothes closet. Then Dr. Young set about building back his muscles and reached the ultimate in dis- gust when he tried, for the first time in decades, to chin him- self.

Site of the Hope Raised For Winding Up Congress WASHINGTON (AP) Behind the-scenes talk Wednesda cracked, at least a bit, the im passe that has frozen Congress into one of its longest sessions a Senate and House member agreed to iron out some of their differences in conferences. The leaders accomplished this progress with a helping hand from the White House as the specie of a lack of a quorum threatenec to halt all action. Members o Congress seeking re-election nex month are eager to get back horn to campaign and large number already have left. One obstacle to adjburnmen was removed when President Ken nedy without comment un expectedly signed a bill to let sel employed persons set up tax-de- ductible pension funds. Sen. George A.

This dispatch reached Cairo shortly after the U.A.R. govern- ment had pledged all its strength to defend Yemen against any at- tack on the two-week-old revolu- tionary regime that overthrew the monarchy. Backers of the monarchy, including members of the royal family, have been at- impting a counterrevolution. There had been signs that the U.A.R. government of President Gamal Abdel Nasser had pre- pared for any eventuality in Ye- I.

The U.A.R. pledge was issued by Prime Minister Aly Sabry aft- er a meeting of the Presidency Council presided over by Presi- dent Carnal Abdel Nasser. Sabry said the council decided after assessing the situation in Yemen and "the present Saudi Arabian-Jordanian aggression on Yemen's northern borders, well as Interference directed the southern region." Since the revolt broke out in Yemen the U.A.R. has pledged to lupport the new regime, but this was the firmest statement yet, Implying full military support.

Slates Nuclear Test WASHINGTON (AP) The United States announced Wednes- day a new missile-launched nu- clear test high over the pacific next Sunday or Monday. The Atomic Energy Commis- sion said a sub-megaton device would be exploded at an altitude of "tens of kilometers" in the Johnston Island test area. This would mean a detonation of less than the equivalent of 1 million tons of TNT more than six miles high. A kilometer ig .62 of a mile. The announcement said: "The test is presently scheduled to take place between p.m. Oct. 14 and a.m. Oct. 15, Hawaiian Standard Time, subject to weath- er technical delays. If it is not held during this 5-hour period it will be postponed to a tune and date to be announced later." The AEC did not say the nu- clear device would be sent up by a rocket or missile, but all previous high altitude tests at- tempted in the Johnston Island area have been launched with Thor missiles. Of four tried only one has been successful. Two failed in June, a third was successful on July 9, and July 25 a Thor missile bear- ing a nuclear warhead was de- stroyed on the launch pad, seri- ously damaging the launch area. The July 9 shot was in the meg- ton-plus range and was exploded more than 200 miles high. The massive explosion was visible for thousands of miles. H temporari- y disrupted communications in the Pacific and touched off a storm of criticism, particularly from Communist nations. A lasting effect was a new giant radiation belt it threw around the world, below and merging into the natural Van Alien radiation belt. The Soviet Union broke a long Russtan-Britlsh-U.

Headquarters of the organiza- tion is in San Juan. (AP Wire- photo) group reported Wednesday it had raided the northern coast of Cuba early Monday, killing 20 persons There was immediate speculation as to whether the action affected touchy negotiations for release of last year's invasion prisoners. The exile organization, which calls itself Alpha 66, said the raid was made at a.m. on the port of Isabella de Sagua, 150 miles east of Havana. It said the principal objective was a camp of Cuban militiamen and Soviet military men protected by numerous trenches and power- ful lights.

Two House Republicans said they had wired President Kenne- dy demanding information about government involvement in any payments to Cuba. Rep. John J. Rhodes, R-Ariz., asked for the "amount of money which has been, or will be, com- mitted to the ransom from foreign aid appropriations, and the cate- gories of aid from which such commitments have been, or will be, made." Rep. Robert H. Michael, R-I11., asked the President to say wheth- er or not the administration has through erwise, as payment or said in part: ended at a.m. "The battle in the rail- oners.

A ware- house of military supplies and four other strategic points were destroyed, many weapons and some flags of the enemy were captured. "No fewer than 20 enemy were killed." A spokesman said the dead in- cluded Russians but he gave no figures. The attacking force was given as 15 to 23 men. Some were wounded, it was said, but all got away safely. This report and other develop- ments added confusion to what already was a cloudy situation concerning prospects for release of Cubans captured during the abortive Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961. Thousands of Cuban exiles In Florida waited anxiously but with hopes mounting hourly for word concerning the progress of talks between New York lawyer James B. Donovan and Cuban Prime Min- ister Fidel Castro. Officials of Cuban groups made no immediate comment concern- ing whether they thought the negotiations might have been af- fected by the Monday foray against Cuba, but the possibility apparently was being considered. Donovan was reported optimis- tic on Tuesday concerning chances for freeing the prisoners. However, an expected meeting with Castro during the day failed to take place and was understood to have been postponed until Wednesday. An explanation suggested at the lime was that Castro wished to talk first with Cuban President Osvaldo Dorticos, en route home from the United Nations General Assembly in New York. In a speech there, Dorticos bitterly de- nounced the United States. But with news of the Cuban raid Wednesday, it was thought in some quarter this may caused a delay in the talks. The Miami News said it had learned that if a rescue airlift by Pan American World Airways planes was begun by Thursday, the aircraft would land under maximum security at the Home- stead Air Force Base, with tha public barred from the vicinity. Should the landings take placa at a less-guarded airport, officials have said, as many as persons could be expected, creat- ing scenes of wild excitement. The News said that under ma Homestead AFB landing plan, the prisoners would be whisked into waiting buses and sped to a for- mer Marine and Navy base at Opa-locka for medical checks and registration. After clearance, they would be released to rejoin relatives.
