(Photo by Hallmark. Studio, Sweetwater) Five Generations of Women Thinking 'Blue' This Time Eighty-eight years is a long time to wait to have a male in the family, but five generations of women have their caps set for a boy and Mrs. Jerry Lawson of Tye hopes she can deliver. If it is a boy, it will be the first horn to Mrs, Lawsun's side of the family since 1882. A GIRL, of course, would be welcome, but it might start out m the world with a small problem it wouldn't have a name. just haven't thought of anything but 'male' and we haven't even, discussed a girl's name. If it is a boy, he'll be named Jerry Michael." Mrs. Lawson. the third generation, rooted for the fourth generation, her daughter Mrs. Dale Critz of: Stephenville, to break the female trend a few months ago. However, the fifth generation was born a girl. THE LAWSON'S who operate a Shell service station in Tye are surrounded by friends and well-wishers who are helping them "think blue." "Everyone who makes a prediction says it will be a Mrs. Lawson said. "Even the doctor guessed a boy." Whether it's Jerry or Geraldine, the Lawsons should know soon. "He or she as the case may be is due any day Mrs. Lawson said. "And we are really going to be celebrating soon. Boy, oh, boy." UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) President Nixon went before the United Nations Fri- day with an appeal to the Soviet Union "to join in a peaceful competition" with America to promote world peace and prog- ress. Addressing the 127-natioti General Assembly's 25th anni- versary session. Nixon por- trayed many of the and the United grievous troubles as stemming from the deep U.S.-Soviet differ- ences since World War II. And "the facts of international life as they he said, are that the competition between the world's two superpowers must be shifted away from cold war gain-seeking in order to lay a base for global peace. "So I would like to speak with you today not ritualistically but realistically; not of impossible dreams, but of possible Nixon told the standing room- only gathering of world envoys and notables. "I invited the leaders of the Soviet Union to join us in taking that new he said, "to join in a peaceful competition, not in the accumulation of arms but in the dissemination of progress; not in the building of missiles but in waging a winning war against hunger and disease and human misery in our own coun- tries and around the globe. "Let us compete in elevating the human spirit, in fostering respect for law among nations and in promoting the works of peace." Referring to the Middle East in particular, Nixon called on the great powers to avoid being "drawn into conflict without their intending it by wars be- tween smaller nations." Soviet Foreign Minister An- drei A. Gromyko listened atten- tively and impassively as Nixon issued his public bid to Kremlin leaders. But the Russian w.as noncommital in talking to news- men afterwards. ''I want to study it thorough- Gromyko said. "We are still firmly for peace." The President presumably had delivered a similar mes- sage to the Soviet foreign af- fairs chief during their White House meeting Thursday. Egypt's foreign minister. Mahmoud Riad, said: "We are 100 per cent for peace but we are also for peace based on justice." The Egyptian said that means "a full withdrawal of Israel from our territories and the full restoration of the rights of the Palestinians." Turkey's ambassador Nuri Eren said: "It was a construc- tive speech and very much at- tuned with the mainstream of feeling and thought in the com- memorative session." Routine applause greeted Nix- on as he finished his 25-minute televised address. As customary in such session, he was not in- terrupted by applause during his speech. Nixon whisked to New York and back to the White House in an afternoon. Soon after his helicopter landed at the Wall Street helipad, he found some vocal admirers. Hard hatted construction workers leaned dizzily from a network of steel that reached up 13 stories. Nixon, halted his lim- ousine, got out and climbed a barricaded highway ramp to re- turn a two-handed wave. As he entered the heavily guarded U.N. building, a string of firecrackers exploded at win- dows high in an apartment about a block away. Whether the noisy greeting signaled ap- proval or otherwise was not clear. Nixon paid a prespeech cour- tesy call on U.N. Secretary-Gen- eral U Thant, then took his seat in the Assembly hall as head of the American delegation amid scattered applause. Before taking the rostrum, the President sat an earplug for Ethiopia's Emperor Halle Selas- sie delivered his scheduled ad- dress. The 73-year-old Ethiopean monarch spoke for three quar- ters of an hour on U.N. short- comings and hopes.

Alexander, about 50, considered an authority in teaching migrant children. He resigned his school job with the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo school system last spring. Alexander also was a flying instructor. Alexander's body was recover- ed from the destroyed struc- tures. It still was strapped in the pilot's seat when found. Charles Wardroup in the con- trol tower at Miller Internation- al Airport at nearby McAllen said an all-point radio call was received from a pilot identified later as Alexander. The call was on an emergency frequency. The flier ordered fire depart- ments to evacuate all Methodist and Roman Catholic Churches between Hidalgo and Edinburg and Weslaco and McAllen, all in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Asked the reason for his strange order, the pilot replied-, "because of a serious plot." Moments later the four-place plane smashed into the church end fell at the point where the cafeteria and church proper joined, setting both afire. Only the steel beams of the church and Its steeple remain- ed. The Rev. E. A. Ballard, chan- cellor of the Brownsville diocese of which the church complex is a part, estimated the loss at million. He said the church and cafeteria destruction was total. See CRASH, Pg. 2-A SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) A shaggy, bearded young "lon- charged with the methodi- cal murder of five persons in an isolated mansion Monday, was arraigned Friday afternoon un- der tight security by officers fearful of community reaction. John Linley Frazier, 24, was seized peacefully Friday morn- ing as he slept in a shack only a half-mile from the scene of the shootings.

The fifth victim, the doctor's secretary, Mrs. Dorothy Cad- wallader, 38, was buried Thurs- day. the sheriff's office and local police called on officers from four nearby jurisdictions to help in heavy patrolling of the entire area as Frazier was taken in a windowless white van the three blocks from the jail to the Mu- nicipal Court. Ballinger Girl Helps Kiss Notre Dame Record Goodby SAN MARCOS A Ballinger girl and a former Reporter-News staff intern were part of two tired twosomes who helped Southwest Texas State University smack the old national kissing record set at Notre Dame early Friday morn- ing. The former intern, Penny Young ot Hereford, and her partner. Bill Ewing ot San Antonio, were credited as co- record holders when they called it quits at the same time Deborah Gabbert of Ballinger and Joe Caldwell of Austin did. The contestants remained in lip contact for 9 hours and 18 minutes before a crowd at a student-faculty football game. The contest began with 10 couples at p.m., continued through the game and ended at a.m. when the remaining two couples agreed to call it a draw. Penny said about 100 people remained after the game, walking around the couples, cheering. The contest, sponsored by the Intep-fraternity Council at the school, beat a record of 6Vi hours said held by students at Notre Dame. Penny, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Young of Hereford, worked in The Reporter-News newsroom in the summer of 1969. Deborah is the daughler of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas I. Gabbert of Ballinger, JOHN FKAZIKR seized Friday About 20 reporters and 50 spectators who were admitted were first painstakingly searched, and the rest oi the building was evacuated. The slightly built Frazier. wearing leg irons but no hand- cuffs, looked slowly around the room, nodding with" a trace of a smile. Asked if his name was John l.inley Krazier, he whispered "Yes." Asked if he is known by any other name, he firmly re- plied "No." Public Defender Gary Britton entered a plea of innocent to the five counts of murder. Judge Donald 0. May set a prelimi- nary hearing for 10 a.m. Oct. 28. refusing the district attorney's motion for an additional day" to take the case to the grand jury. Then Krazier, still with "a slight smile, was led back to jail. He was shoeless and wore white prison socks and a blue prison coverall instead of the rough clothing and ankle boots in which he was captured. Dist. Atty. Peter Chang Jr. lo'.d .iewsnien information from three unidentified ac- quaintances and from Franer's estranged wife had put officers on the trail that led lo the cap- ture. The e-by-6-foot shanty is sep- arated by a rugged ravine from tile luxurious estate where firemen found the five bodies in the swimming pool Monday night as they vainly tried to save the doctor's burning mansion. Sheriff Douglas James issued a brief statement saying, "Two of the deputy sheriffs from this department, Bradley Arbsland and Rodney Sanford. were on surveillance in the vicinity of a cabin the suspect had used be- fore. "Early this morning, they went quietly to check the cabin. "They found the suspect asleep. They took him into cus- tody without resistance." A reporter and a photogra- pher, who reached the scene as Frazier was being led away in handcuffs, said they heard shots as they approached. The sheriff said, however, there was no resistance and that Frazier was unarmed. The location is above the vil- lage of Soquel, overlooking Mon- terey Bay about four miles southeast of Santa Cruz. Queen Rita Aleala. above, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Zoila Alcala, was crowned homecoming queen of Coieman High School Kriday night.
