Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS Byron 82NDYEAR.NO.138 PAGE ONE While Americana back home struggled last week to soak up all the fast-breaking news on the Cuba crisis, a troup of tour- ing Abilenians struggled to pick up a crumb here and a crumb on the big doings. Fart of the tour group, Mrs. James Chapel and Dr. and Mrs. Wayne Ramsey Jr., were back in Abilene Wednesday and told how it was. A bus driver who heard It on the Voice of America broadcast picked up in Lucerne, Switzer- land, relayed to the Abilenians the first word of the United States stand laid out by Presi- dent Kennedy. Then began a several-days ef- fort to find out what was hap- pening. Stateside newspapers were two days old. One day was spent on a train, removed from the news. In Paris there were the local editions of the New York pa- pers but it was the eve of the "de Gaulle referendum" and local French news crowded the space. In London the Abilenians be- gan connecting with detailed news and reaction to the news. They coincided with a giant "Hands Off Cuba" demonstra- tion that blocked them from their hotel until police could get things under control. And they found reaction more pleasing to them. The strong American stand seemed very much to the liking of Britishers they met. "America has said 'that's far an English elevator operator proudly informed his passengers and he gave to American Mrs. Chapel a smiling salute. Back home the tourists got the full story and a feel of the tension it created. "Is there any bottled water left to Mrs. Ramsey ask- ed The Gray Ladies are those volunteers who, through their Red Cross organization, seek to provide the extras that lift a hospital patient's morale and, it is hopeti, speed his recovery. During World War II days Abilene Gray Ladies did great service to the sad and lonesome soldiers grounded in Camp Berkeley hospital. Reorganized in 1956, Gray Ladies serve now in Dyess AFB Hospital and in Cox and St. Ann civilian hospitals. (Such work is done at Hendrick through the hospital's Auxiliary.) They have another field of service too one in which the need for them is mushrooming. The Gray Ladies have started service in nursing homes, "rest" homes, delivering mail, reading and writing letters for the aged and ill, in some cases substituting in a measure for absent families. Some 20 Gray Ladies, most of them Dyess wives, serve at the base hospital and about 10 are working in city hospitals and rest homes, Mrs. Lee Web- ster, chairman of local Gray Ladies, says. "We could use 100 right she reports. The Gray Ladies do no nurs- ing but they receive traiiiing in how best to serve in doing the "little" things that appear large to the patient and shut- in. A new Gray Lady class will be conducted next Monday through Friday mornings, to at the Red Cross Chap- ter House, except for one day to be spent at Dyess. (Any in- terested should contact Mrs. Webster this week.) The Gray Ladies may get military or civilian assign- but the most pressing needs seem to be in the rest "Hospital patients have too much Red Cross Director OUie Lena Olsen said, "but the rest home patient is 10 often so alone." The Gray Lady finds a wel- come where she goes but none quite as warm as that In the ntt home room, the Gray La- dles say. "Some of these aged have hid no company at all for weeks until we get around to Mrs. Webster said.

A fist full of cotton candy, a carnival full of laughs and door- :o-door trick or treatin' had a difficult time holding their own over vandalism and vicious pranks. Carnival Popular A beacon of light from the Key City Kiwanis Club Carnival at Fair Park drew children of all ages from all parts of the city. For a pocket full of change you could knock down furry cats, throw darts at balloons or sponges at manikens. Several thousands of young and old alike flocked to the carnival, but for those who just stayed in the neighborhood and went from door to door it was still like Webster said a day of merrymaking preceding All Saints Day. 2 Men Killed Selling Up Drilling Rig THIiOCKMORTON (RNS) Two Wichita Falls men were killed about 3 p.m. Wednesday when oil well drilling equipment they were unloading fell on them 20 miles southwest of here.

Thant, about his apparent failure to per- suade Prime Minister Fidel Cas- tro to go along with a Soviet sug- gestion that the missile withdraw- al be verified by U.N. inspection. Such inspection was considered vital by the United States. The secretary-general indicated he would continue his discussions with Cuban representatives in New York on the whole Cuban crisis. Thant's statement was made to newsmen on his arrival from Ha- vana. He rushed immediately to U.N. headquarters for separate meetings with Chief U.S. Delegate Adlai E. Stevenson and Soviet First Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov. Thant's chartered plane touched down at New York's Idlewild Air- port at p.m. amid develop- ments which indicated the Cuban crisis had taken a critical turn. In his airport statement Thant made no mention of his apparent rebuff by Castro. He stressed the dismantling of the Soviet miss'le bases and plans for withdrawal of the missiles. Shortly before Thant's return. the White House announced that the naval arms quarantine of ,Cub.a would be reinstated- Thurs- and that aerial sur- veillance of the Soviet missile sites m Cuba would start again. In what seemed to be another emergency move, the Soviet Un- ion sent Anastas I. Mikoyan, a first Soviet deputy premier, on a hurried trip to Cuba via London and New York. He is due m Ha- vana on Friday. Thant described his talks in Ha- vana as "fruitful." He said there the Cuban problem. arrangements for which are understood to be in hand."

The attempt apparently was not successful. Press secretary Pierre Salinger old newsmen he would not state aerial surveillance would begin. Like the naval blockade, it had been suspended for the period of Thant's two-day visit to Cuba. The White House also nounced that K e n n e d y has canceled a news conference which had been scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Salinger said it would be rescheduled (he Cuban situation is clarified. In announcing that the recon- naissance operations will be re- sumed, Salinger told newsmen: "In the absence of eff 2ctive U N. arrangements, the hemisphere na- ;ions have the responsibility for continuing surveillance." It was presumed that safe- ty of American fliers was the rea- son for Salinger's refusal to state Polio immunization programs using the Type II Sabin oral vac- ine will be conducted in 11 West Texas cities, including Abilene, Nov. n, Dr. Richard Johns, presi- dent of the Taylor-Jones County iledical Society, announced Wednesday night. Medical directors of the area mmunization program originally had planned to give the Type II vaccine on that date because sufficient quantities of Type II were not available. Dr. Johns said. However, officials of Lederle Laboratories of New Jersey, man- ufactures of Sabin vaccine, as- sured area directors early this week that the Type II vaccine would arrive in Abilene Nov. 9, wo days before the Sunday vac- cination effort.
