(Photo bv 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 genera! ohs (rf women have their caps set for a boy and Mrs. Jerry Lawson of rye hopes she can deliver. If it is a bev, it will be the first bom to M -s Lawson’s side of the family since 1382. A GIRL. of course, would be welcome, but it muht start, out in the world with a small problem — it won Un t have a name. “We 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 Jerrv Michael. Mrs. Lawson, the third generation, rooted for the fourth generation, her daughter Mrs. Pale Cruz of Stephenville, to break the female trend a few months ago. However, the fifth generation was bom a girl. THE LAWSON'S — who operate a Shell service station in Tye — are surrounded befriends and well-wishers who are helping them “think blue.” “Everyone who makes a prediction says it will be a’ boy,” Mrs. Lawson said. “Even the diK'tor 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 now,” 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 Friday with an appeal to the Soviet Union “to join in a peaceful competition" with America to promote world peace and progress. Addressing the 127-nation General Assembly’s 25th anniversary session. Nixon portrayed many of the world — and the United Nations—most grievous troubles as stemming from the deep U S -Soviet differences since World War II. And “the facts of international life as they are,” he sa.d. are that the competition between the world's two superpowers must be shifted away from old war gain-seeking in order to .ay 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 deeds," 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 road," 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 countries 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 between smaller nations.” Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko listened attentively and impassively as Nixon issued his public bid to Kremlin leaders. But the Russian was noncommital rn talking to newsmen afterwards. “I want to study it thoroughly." Gromyko said. “We are still firmly for peace." The President presumably had delivered a similar message to the Soviet foreign affairs chief during their White House meeting Thursday. Egypt’s foreign minister, Mahmoud Riad, said: “We are IOO 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.” Turkev’s ambassador Nun Eren said: “It was a constructive speech and very much attuned with the mainstream of feeling and thought in the commemorative session.” Routine applause greeted Nixon as he finished his 25-minute televised address As customary in such session, he was not interrupted 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 - hared construction workers leaned dizzily from a network of steel that reached up 13 stones. Nixon halted his limousine, got out and climbed a bam* adod highway ramp to return a two-handed wave. As he entered the heavily guarded f N. building, a string of firecrackers exploded at windows high in an apartment about a block away. Whether *he noisy greeting signaled approval or otherwise was not clear. Nixon paid a prespeech emir-t.esv call on U N. Secretary-Genera; U Thant, then took his seat in the Assembly hall as head of the American delegation am.d scattered applause. Before taking the rostrum, the President sat quietly—with an earplug for translation—as Ethiooia's Emperor Hade Seias-4ie delivered his st hedu.ed ad-dress. The 78-y ear-old Ethiopetn monarch spoke for three quarters of an hour on U N shortcomings and hopes. This de- See NIXON. Pg. 2-A WEATHER U 3.

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 recovered from the destroyed structures. It still was strapped in the pilot’s seat when found. Charles Wardroup in the control tower at Miller International 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 departments 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 and fell at the point where the cafeteria and church proper joined, setting both afire. Only the steel beams of the church and its steeple remained. The Rev. E. A. Ballard, chancellor of the Brownsville diocese of which the church complex is a part, estimated the loss at $1.5 million. He said the church and cafeteria destruction was total. See CRASH. Pg 2 A SANTA CRUZ. Calif. (AP) -A shaggy, bearded young “loner.” charged with the methodical murder of five persons in an isolated mansion Monday, was arraigned Friday afternoon under tight security by officers fearful of community reaction. John Linley Frazier. 24. was seized peacefully Friday morning as he slept in a shack only a half-mile from the scene of the shootings. He was booked at the Santa Cruz County jail while mourners were gathering only two blocks away for the funeral of four of the victims. They were Dr. Victor M O'nta.’to, a prominent eye surgeon, his wie. Virginia. 43, and sons Derrick, 12, and Taggart, ll. The fifth victim, the doctor's secretary, Mrs. Dorothy Cad-wallader. 38, was buried Thursday. The sheriff’s office and local pol ce 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 Municipal Court. Ballinger Girl Helps Kiss Notre Dame Record Goodby SAN MARCOS - A Ballinger girl and a former Reporter-N’ews 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 morning- The Young former intern, Penny of Hereford, and her partner, Bill Ewing of 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.

JOHN FRAZIER . . . sized Friday About 29 reporters and 50 spectator^ who were admitted were first painstakingly searched, and the rest of the building was evacuated. The slightly built Frazier, wearing leg irons but no handcuffs looked slowly around the room, nodding with a trace of a smile. Asked if his name was John Linley Frazier, he whispered “Yes." .Asked if he is known by any other name, he firmly replied “No.” Public Defender Gary Britton entered a plea of innocent to the five counts of murder. Judge Donald 0. May set a preliminary hearing for IO a m. Oct. 28. refusing the district attorney’s motion for an additional day to take the case to the grand jury. Then Frazier, still with a sight smile, was ied 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. Dis?. Atty. Peter Chang Jr. told newsmen information from three unidentified hipp.e acquaintances and from Frazier’s estranged wife had put officers on the trail that led to the capture.
