One election day, they say. this miller was on oil -way to his mill to (rind .and met a friend who asked if be had vot- ed. miller. "Do." said the friend. So the miller did and, in so doing, voted for one particular legislative candidate. Hie' candidate won by one vote. The legislator went to the leg- islature and there came the se- lection of a U. S. Senator from Indiana. This fellow who had won by one cast his one for Edward Allen Hennegan. Hen- hegan won by one vote and went to the Senate. The admission of Texas into the union of states was at the moment a burning one for, much as we hate to report it, some didn't want us. They said right harsh things about the up- starts down near the Rio Grande. The country was divid- ed, North vs. South, on Texas. But the Texas cause was pushed and it came at last to the 0. S. Senate. As the Jaycees have it, Sen. Hennegan was presiding as president pro tern that day the Senate voted on Texas. There was a tie. The Senator, who had won by the one vote of a legislator who had won by one vote by a mil- ler who almost didn't vote, cast the one vote Texas needed. The Jaycees may or may not be on sound historical ground but the story is being told in a sound effort The Junior Chamber is, as be- fore each general election, con- ducting a "Please Vote Tues- day" campaign, directed by Fred Olds. It is a non-partisan undertaking to remind the in- dividual voter Ms vote is Im- portant Vote as you please but please vote. By word of mouth privately and publicly, through a speak- ers bureau which has sent spokesmen to a dozen civic gatherings the "Please Vote" request is being spread. To this the election officials add a second plea. Please vote and please vote early. Vote by noon if at all possible. Mrs. Jim Webb of Cisco, who teaches in Putnam High School, last week invited Putnam's un- defeated untied football team to come to her house for supper after the Putnam Moran game to be played in Cisco Thursday the 8th. Then she went home and told her husband, Jim, Cisco busi- nessman and ex basketball and track man at Howard Payne. Jim pointed out a complica- tion. The Webbs are planning to move their two story house from town out to a suburban site near Cisco Country Club. Housemovers are scheduled to begin today, Monday, to pre- pare for the move. By suppertime Thursday the house could be anywhere be- tween its present location and the club site. The Webbs decided to go ahead. Jim says he will carry in water, use bottled butane for cooking if necessary and will in- stall a ladder at the doorway, wherever it may be. The Putnam gridden will be guests at the Webb home for post-game supper Thursday. But first they must find it.

Diplomat Ousted By Soviet Union By GEORGE SYVERTSEN MOSCOW Soviet Un- ion charged U.S. diplomat Rich- ard Carl Jacob with spying Sun- day and ordered him out of the country. In Washington, the State De- partment said the charges are "a complete fabrication." The 26-year-old secretary-archi- vist was the third U.S. Embassy staff member expelled on spy charges in less than a month. The Soviet news agency Tass fecused Jacob of "maintaining sec- ret liaison with a spy on the ter- ritory of the Soviet Union." A U.S. Embassy spokesman said Jacob, of Egg Harbor City, fJ.J., was arrested by Soviet au- thorities Friday. "He was forced into a car and taken to a militia station where he was detained against his will for two and one-half the spokesman said. The embassy protested Satur- day to the Soviet Foreign Minis- ry, charging that Jacob had been illegally detained. Tass said Jacob was "caught redhanded while removing intelli- gence data from a secret hiding place in the entrance hall of house number 5-6 Pushkinskaya Street in Moscow." It said the nature of the ma- terials made it certain "beyond a shadow of a doubt" that he was in contact with an undercover agent. The embassy would not say what Jacob was doing when he was picked up or give any infor- mation on the nature of the ma- terial Tass referred to. Jacob's expulsion order was handed to Minister-counsellor John M. McSweeney at the Soviet Foreign Ministry Sunday after- noon. The embassy withheld the news of the arrest and expulsion until after the Soviet version was published abroad by Tass. Later, it released a text of the protest note alleging violation of Jacob's diplomatic immunity. Jacob, a bachelor who has served in Moscow for 10 months, was ordered to leave the Soviet Union at once. Bailey's illness was not describ- ed as serious. Speaking of the local "exchang- Blackford said, "Their con- duct was superior. We couldn't have asked for a better group. Miss Uozell) Brister and I both love all of them." Miss Brister was also a sponsor on the trip. Charles Sikes, 18-year-old senior and president of the Abilene Ex- change Club, praised the Pennsyl- vania High School exchangers and the people in that part of the country. "I'd always heard they (north- ern people) didn't know their next door he said. "It's not true." According to Sikes, highlights of their week at the high school near Philadelphia were socials, a tour of Philadelphia and a visit in the home of an Amish family (origi- nally from The group visited Memphis, Tenn.; Williamsburg, Va.; Wash- ington, D. C; New York City, and Springfield, 111. The Library of Congress in Washington was one of the most impressive sites, according to the sponsor. Local students took time out in Springfield, 111., to visit the home and tomb of President Lincoln. The Abilene Exchange Club is made up of top scholastic students who have good citizenship and character records. Students from the Pennsylvania high school will visit in Abilene in early April on an "exchange" trip.

(AP) -Acting Secretary-General U Thant said Sunday he would con- sult with Security Council mem- bers Monday about a council meeting on the Cuban crisis, pos- sibly this week. In saying this to newsmen, Thant repeated his earlier posi- tion that he would like the council to meet "if there is any reason- able area of common agreement among the parties directly in- United States, the Soviet Union and Cuba. Thant did not specify any de- velopment that would meet the condition of reasonable area of common agreement, but declared again that the outlook was good for a settlement satisfactory to all concerned. Thant said it was possible the council meeting would take place this week. But some delegates expressed belief it would more likely be next week. The top U.S. and Soviet nego- tiators had a three-hour luncheon meeting Sunday. There was no announcement of results. Meanwhile, it was learned that Paul Ruegger of the International Committee of the Red Cross will arrive Tuesday to negotiate with the United Nations on a plan for Red Cross inspection of Cuba- bound Soviet ships to see that they carry no arms. Ruegger, ex-president of that all-Swiss committee, will come to New York from its Geneva head- quarters to talk with U.N. Acting Secretary-General U Thant about the plan. Authoritative sources, disclos- ing this Sunday, said the idea is still in its formative stage. But they said it is likely to involve stationing Red Cross personnel aboard picket ships at two check points on the high seas, one off Havana and the other in the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti. Each incoming Soviet ship, by radio, would arrange a rendezvous with one or the other of these :heck points. At the designated time, it would submit to Red Cross inspection. The captain might present the usual cargo manifest for cheeking during the inspection or, if proper arrangements could be worked out, he might present a certificate that the ship was carrying no arms. Red Cross inspection would sub- stitute for a blockade the U.S. Navy now is maintaining around Cuba to make sure no long-range missiles, bombing planes or ac cessories are shipped there. In letters exchanged a week ago Soviet Premier Khrushchev and President Kennedy agreed that the Soviet Union would dismantle missile bases in Cuba and move the missiles home in return for a U.S. pledge against invasion of that island. Constant Check Might Be Asked By WHITNEY SHOEMAKER WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy was described Sunday as feeling that some kind of surveil- lance must continue indefinitely nation of the Soviet rockets. On the question of inspection to verify elimination of the Soviet offensive weapons, there is room, government sources said, for ne- over Cuba to guarantee against gotiation on the makeup of any any renewal of a Soviet missile buildup off the U.S. coast. Government sources reported this position of the President while emphasizing that he is de- termined to verify the removal of have been removed from (Af WbeDhoto) PAUL RUEGGER to negotiate Soviet offensive weapons from Cuba by international inspection teams.

Saudi Arabia in turn vowed Deputy vengeance for a Yemeni air raid Friday. And Premier Wasfi Tell Jordan, accusing the United Arab Republic of aggression in Midi, proclaimed solidarity Yemeni pat- with Saudi Arabia. He declared to Jordan "finds itietf compelled to crush it (aggression) with deter- mination." The angry broadcasts raised fears of a war pitting the mon- archies of Jordan and Saudi Arabia against the Yemen revolu- tionary regime and the U.A.R., which has backed the Yemeni rev- olution with planes, tanks and troops. President Abdullah Sallal of the Yemeni regime was quoted in a men! broadcast ai threatening march hli forces into Saudi Arabia's Red Sea port of Qiun and the frontier city of Najran, ISO miles inland. The broadcast said he told mon- cheering crowds in the southern port of Mocha, about 250 miles south of Qizan: "I hereby declare in your name that unless calls off his anti-Yemen hostilities, and remains within his limits and among his concubines, our massed forces have orders the Yemeni supreme command to march into Qlzan and Najran recover Yemen's stolen territory." Qisan and Najran were from Yemen by Saudi Arabia's late King Ibn Saud, father of King Saud, in war against Yemen in the 1920s. Qizan is about 40 miles from Yemen's northern border, where Saud Yemen's revolutionary forces are reported massing. Sallal said he had ordered his government to prepare the people from for "a showdown battle with Saudi Arabia." He declared "Amu will and be distributed among you toon and soon we will teach them an Miss Mabel Minter Dies; Rites Tuesday Miss Mabel Minter, member of one of Abilene's oldest families, died at 4 p.m. Sunday at her home at 340 Beech following an illness of several weeks. Miss Minter was .born Feb. 9, 1903, in Abilene. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Minter Jr. Her father was founder of Minter Dry Goods Co. here. He died in 1935 and her mother diet! in 1956. Miss Minter was a member of 'he First Presbyterian Church She attended Abilene schools. The Minter family moved to Taylor County in 1879, two years jefore Abilene was founded, and came to Abilene from Buffalo Gap shortly after Abilene was founded. They helped to found the First Presbyterian Church here. Will A. Minter Sr. was an early- day merchant in Buffalo Gap and lis son established the Minter Dry Co. in Abilene in 1900. Funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Laughter-North Me- morial Chapel. Other arrange- ments are pending. The family las requested that remembrances 3e in the form of gifts to the First Presbyterian Church or the chari- ty of the donor's choice. Survivors are two brothers, Will D. Minter of 1201 Sylvan Dr. and Jack L. Minter of 1441 Tangle- wood; a niece, Mrs. Gerald Crew of 1772 N. Willis and a nephew, Bill Minter of 1201 Sylvan Dr. lory, he was said to maintain. As negotiations took place in the United Nations and between Soviet Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan and Premier Fidel Cas- tro at Havana, sources close to the President sought to make clear that Kennedy is convinced on-the-spot inspection is vital be- fore the United States can be sat isfied that a Soviet threat has vanished from Cuba. They insist- ed also that continuing surveil- lance would be necessary to guard against any future introduc- tion of Soviet missiles to Cuba. Kennedy, these sources said, views his agreement with the So- viet Premier Nikita S. Khrush- chev on the dismantling of Soviet bases in Cuba as. hard diplomacy which allows no room for doubt on either side. Kennedy was pic- tured as feeling neither Moscow nor Washington should be put in a position of relying on anyone's unconfirmed word. Edwin M. Martin, assistant see retary of state for inter-Ameri- can affairs, said destruction of Soviet missile bases in Cuba is almost complete, but he cautioned that the crisis is not past, and will not be until there is on-the- scene verification that the Soviet nuclear rockets have cleared the island. Martin, who spoke on a televi- sion program, said that although the dismantling "looks good we still do not know where they (the missiles) are going or have verifi- cation they have left the island or will not be reintroduced." On the surface official Wash ington marked time on Cuba, pending the outcome of the Mikoy- an-Castro talks. Technically this meeting is a consultation, but the U.S. view is that Mikoyan can and should prod Castro into ac- cepting Soviet Premier Khrush- chev's program for proven elimi- internatkmal inspection teams. By the terms of the Kennedy- Khrushchev agreement, the Unit- ed Nations would supervise the verification that Soviet missiles a condition which would then be followed by withdrawal of the U.S. blockade and assurances that the United States would not invade Cuba. In Kennedy's eye, it was report- ed, inspection teams must be competent, acceptable, trustwor- thy and composed of representa- tives of more than one nation or group. The chief executive is said to believe that some such organiza- tion as the International Commit- tee of the Red Cross could check at sea both traffic leaving as well as entering Cuba. Its agents could inspect ships for crated or for the IL28 light jet bomb- ers that the Soviet Union has placed in Cuba. Through its own intelligence, the United States claims to be pretty wall informed as to how many missiles and planes Khrushchev dispatched to Cuba. WEATHER U. S.
