Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO .FRIENDS OR FpES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 145 ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 8, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS PAGE ONE Dr. W. T. White, superinten- dent of Dallas schools, gives on request a summary of that city system's plans for care of school children in case of "man-made" disaster, a plan in which local interest has been expressed. Dallas schools have put a con- siderable amount of study into this serious and complicated en- deavor. A new program was in- stituted last March. It was up- dated during the recent Cuban crisis. And, Dr. White writes, a "continued study of security measures to be taken is under- way among our staff members and with Civil Defense people." The plans, as given to school principals a few days ago, in- clude: 1. Drills. Each school will have them regularly. 2. Supplies. Each building is (or is to be) stocked with ra- tions for 48 hours. 3. Communications. Via port- able radios tuned to Civil De- fense frequencies since, Dr. White says, "if any emergency should develop, the chances of our getting through to you on the telephone might be remote." 4. Attitude. Schools officials "will remain calm and in a po- sition of dispassionate, active leadership." 5. Disposition of children. As the parents wish. The disposition of children is the heart of the plan it is, after all, what the whole thing is about. Dallas schools have decided that, if given an hour's warn- ing, classes will be dismissed. In case there is not that much warning, the procedure will be as parents have directed. A brochure outlining the plan and asking parental directions was distributed last March. Parents were asked to fill out and return cards saying which of three courses would be fol- lowed: 1. The child would go home the quickest way; or, 2. The pick up the child" at 3. The child will remain at school. (In cases the parent might be away from home or might think school facilities saf- er.) During the recent crisis these directions from parents were updated and teachers were told to "have the disposition of each child (in the room) so well in mind that she will not have to refer to a card." Dallas has pointed out to par- ents some obvious reminders. "It is families have been told, "that if all the par- ents immediately start to the school buildings in automo- biles, a traffic jam will make it impossible for anyone to get in touch with his children Telephone lines will be over- loaded. If parents wish to meet children away from school, a rendezvous point should be es- tablished on a well-known route Children in the first three grades will probably require older people to accompany them home Dallas officials, in their com- munications with, parents, make it clear they don't live in antici- pation of nuclear attack but they want to make the best plans possible just in case. The key matter, the care of the children, will be as the par- ents wish which is, we would imagine, as parents wish. And there is recognition of the fact too little hard civil de- fense knowledge is available. "As we gain more the Dallas school officials tell parents, "we shall communicate with you."

The jury of 11 men and a wom- an deliberated 2 hours and 8 min- utes in reaching a verdict. Defense counsel John Cofer-inv mediately announced he would 'ile a motion for a new trial. Judge Otis T. Dunagan then granted a defense request that Sstes remain free on his present bond of pending the filing of the motion. The d ten days in which to file the motion. As the jury's verdict was read jaws tightened and he ooked grim. Mrs. Estes, who sat near her msband, looked as though she was on the verge of tears. She did not break down. Estes, with his family and riends, quickly left the court- louse in a drenching rain to walk a block to their hotel. Asked by a reporter for com- ment, Estes replied there nothing to say at this time. The jury of 11 men and one p.m. (CST) after hours of final on all three counts of the indict- ment. The judge advised Estes and his contents and then told the jury he could only advise them to refer to his charge. Asked what he thought of the note, Estes replied, "What do you Later the jury asked for one of the exhibits, a record book of the Superior Manufacturing Co., listing anhydrous ammonia (liquid fertilizer) tanks by serial number. The grand jury in Estes' home- town of Pecos, Tex., had indicted Estes on charges of theft, swin- dling and theft by bailee. In his charge the judge told the jury it could not indict Estes on all three charges, but if it decided to convict him it must do so on only one of the charges. The state presented nine wit- nesses in support of its charges that Estes inade fraudulent mis- representations and stole a mortgage from J. T. Wilson, a West Texas cotton farmer. The mortgage was secured by anhy- drous ammonia (liquid fertilizer) tanks which the prosecutors say never were built. The defense presented no wit- nesses. It contended Estes merely paid a bonus for borrowing the credit of Wilson because Estes' credit was used up.

Roosevelt, 78, widow of the 32nd president of the United States and in her own right one of the world's outstanding wom- en, died Wednesday- night. Her heart apparently failed under the burden of increasingly grave Ill- ness. By coincidence, her death came, exactly 30 years after she helped celebrate with her husband his election as president. She spent :2 Democratic New Deal years with him in the White House un- til his death in 1945. Mrs. Roosevelt was as contro- versial as she was prominent. She inspired deep love and affection among friends and casual admir- ers. She brought down the wrath of others, including political foes of her late husband. But loved or despised, she was woman too vital ever to be ignored. Her interests were myriad. Al- most no controversy escaped her in internation- al affairs or a domestic crisis in- volving civil rights. Until she was hospitalized in September, Mrs. Roosevelt main- tained an amazing pace, shuttling about the world oo one errand after another. For a generation her travels had been a source of American humor, both good and" aMntentloned. She wrote and lec- tured, clways on the go. Although not overly robust in appearance, she seemed to thrive on her mer- ry-go-round pattern. On Sept. 26, Mrs. Roosevelt en- :ered Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, seemingly for a routine checkup. Actually, she had suffered a lung Infection and anemia. When her illness failed to yield to hospital treatment, she was discharged to her Manhattan apartment at 55 E. 74th St on Oct. 18. There she gradually faded until her death at p.m. East- ern Standard Time, Wednesday night. She was too ill to take part In of Tyler.
