Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT Byron 82ND YEAR, NO. 153 ABILENE, TEXAS, FRIDAY PAGE ONE Some of the 90th Division exes were sitting around the last day of their reunion last week end when thoughts turped to "old So-and-So" who di'dn't make it to the Abilene gathering. "Why, old Simras (Paul P.) didn't get someone re- marked. "Dog-gone It, let's just call 90th Ex Bob Tiffany sug- gested. "Collect." So they did and Simms' old regimental commander. Col. J. H. Rustemeyer, now in retire- ment in Kansas, and the oth-. ers got on the phone. They talked and they talked. At last Simms, former platoon leader now a sales executive at Arlington, came to a decision. "Hey, you guys, it'll be cheap- er to drive out to Abilene than to stay on the phone." He did. And he got here in time to help on some other phone calls to some other 90th fellows who didn't make it to Abilene. Collect After service as board chair- man at St. Paul Methodist Church, Chuck Moser returned recently to Sunday School teach- ing, a class of eighth graders. First Sunday he was back on duty the warning bell failed, for some reason, to sound. The lesson was the great one on Moses and, Chuck says, "it took me a long time to get the Children of Israel through the Red Sea." He taught on and on until fi- nally some student asked, "Say, Coach, did you know it's straight up Church had started at and there were all those parents waiting outside Chuck's Sunday School room to take their eighth graders with them to worship. Next Sunday Chuck deputized one girl who was sitting on a front seat. "You watch your watch and every Sunday, no matter what, when it gets to be you interrupt me and say, 'It's and I'll begin to Chuck directed. A couple of Sundays ago Chuck had to be out of town and Len Johnson, who looks aft- er such things for St. Paul, asked Mrs. John R. Day Jr. to substitute. "How did it Chuck said he asked Mrs. Day later. he quotes Mrs. Day, "I thought I was doing a pretty good Job but suddenly a strange thing happened. "This nice young girl very po- litely interrupted and, for no reason at all, said out loud, 41 'It's Allegedly true story out of a West Texas town: There was this young fellow who was so very wild and very woolly and so very full of fleas, that his family decided psychiat- ric care was the only solu- tion. The procedure was un- wound whereby he was commit- ted for examination. A long stringy constable was assigned to transport him to the state hospital. What the constable didn't know was that the patient had some years before known the doctor who superintends the state hos- pital. So when constable and pa- tient arrived, the patient breezed in and announced, "Here's a fellow for you real bad. He's such a nut he may try to tell you he's a constable and I'm a nut." So the patient went off to be wild and woolly and full of fleas and it days later before a disturbed superintendent phoned back to the West Texas town.

V9 09 16, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Auociattd Prew (ff) Barnett Will Face New Contempt Case Khrushchev Seeks New Concessions By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) Soviet Premier Khrushchev reportedly is trying through an exchange of etters with President Kennedy to aise his price for removal of So- viet jet bombers from Cuba. His evident purpose is to get something out of the deal for Cuba's Communist prime min- ister, Fidel Castro. Kennedy, under the cover of se- crecy which shrouds the corre- spondence, is understood to have ejected Khrushchev's proposed price although it is understood the 'resident considers some ele- ments of the bomber dispute and related problems negotiable. Reliable sources at the United Nations reported Thursday night Castro has sent to U Thant, act- ng U.N. secretary-general, for relay to the United States, a warning that U.S. planes will be shot down if they carry out re- :onnaissance missions over Cuba Diplomatic sources here said the warning letter, which Than was reported to have passed on to Afllai E. Stevenson, U.S. am sassador to the United Nations iad not been received here Thurs day night. U.N. dispatches sail he letter would be made publii there Friday.

On Oct. 27, a Defense Depart rnent spokesman said: "Any in ierference with surveillance wil je met with counteraction ant surveillance will be maintained.' The United States has lost one pilot on a reconnaissance mission over Cuba but for the past cou- ple of weeks there have been no Defense Department reports of any firing on the low-level flights which have been checking fre- quently on progress of the remov- al of Soviet bases and nuclear war equipment. The Defense De- partment had no comment Thurs. HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) Crewmen abandoned a burning Greek freighter in the storm- tossed Atlantic on Thursday night as flames swept near her cargo of high explosives. Rescue ships ture of the water was reported to be 74 degrees. Messages to the Coast Guard from the scene indicated the freighter Trinity Navigator had picned up five crewmen of the lifeboat capsized and they had lost sight of the other 18 crewmen in the water. All 18 reportedly wore life jackets. Other rescue craft were bearing down on the scene, 300 miles northeast of Bermuda, to oin in the search.

From Criminal Charges Scheduled NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) The federal appeals court directed the Justice Department on Thurj- ay to institute criminal contempt action against Mississippi Gov. Boss Barnett and Lt. Gov. Paul Johnson Jr. The court earlier held the two in ivil contempt for their efforts to jlock James H. Meredith, a Ne- gro, from enrollment at the Uni- versity of Mississippi. For that, Barnett faces the pos- ibility of jail and daily fines of and Johnson the possi- lility of daily fines of until such time as the court deems they have purged themselves. The court hasn't imposed any penalties yet, pending a decision on if so, .wo purged themselves of con- tempt. Although civil and criminal con- tempt charges are both aimed at the same obedience to court an im- portant difference. Simply put: Criminal contempt would correspond to a father tell- ing his young son, "You didn't do what I told you to do, and I'm go- ing to spank and men doing But civil contempt would cor- respond to the 'father saying, "You didn't do what I told you to do and if you haven't done it by next Tuesday I'm going to spank aonea, uapi. iieorge rkartaiiKui _ and his crew of 24 fought fires in you every day after that until you do." If the son complies by Tues- day, all may be forgiven. Federal law sets no maximum on the fine or prison term a court may impose in either civil or criminal contempt cases. At Jackson, Miss., Barnett ex- pressed surprise at the court's ac- ceipt of detailed instruction from hadn't dreamed of it."

There were no details on whether she had collided with the distressed ship. The Trinity Navigator reported the first lifeboat was launched at p.m. and she picked up the I five crewmen about half an hour later. At p.m. the second boat was launched and at 7 p.m. the Trinity Navigator said that boat capsized after both rescue ships tried to make passes in heavy seas to pick it up.

In reading the two ordinances, Wayor Pro Tern Wiley Connally pointed out that final annexation s not contemplated at this time, Hit would depend on further con- struction in the two areas.
