(See stories, Pp. 3A, IB) (Staff Photo by Don Blaklcy) By ELLIE nUCKfn Tree Requires Special Attention Q. I Just received a loicly small Norfolk Pine tree as a gilt Irum some very special friends In Albany. Raising houseplants Is nol my long suit and I'd like very much In keep Ihls particular plant alive, because It has special moaning lo me. Can jou Icll me how to care for It? A. Keep it in a pot no larger than 6 inches, give it 3.t cup water when the soil gets very dry on top. Fertilize it every three months with good houscplant food. In Abilene or any cold climate it's striclly an indoor tree because it can't take the cold, says Mrs. Mary Linzy, plant expert. Give it some sunlight in "the winter months and shade in the summer. Q. I wrote Action Line asking how lo remove the sediment or crud Inside my aluminum le.ikclllc. Your expert said (o boil cream of tarter In the kettle and I did. 1 still have crud In my teakettle. What do I do now. A. We consulted another authority who consulted three housekeeping and "how lo care for aluminum cookwear" books and they all say, "Boil cream of tarter and water inside the teakettle; repeat if necessary." You must have a very cruddy kettle, so repeat this several times: four tablespoons cream of tarter in a quart of water-boil 10 minutes, let stand 15 minutes, then scour with a steel wool pad. Once you get it cleaned, cook acid foods (tomatoes, the keltic now and then; this helps dissolve the mineral deposits and keeps the kettle clean. Q. I'd like to know if there's a place In Abilene where a 12 year old girl can take Judo or karate? II there Is, where Is It and how much Is the fee? A. Stan Foster has a judo club at 2i14 Winter Lane that meets once a week. Lessons arc a month and you can quit whenever you want. Now there's one small problem, the class is for men only, but as a special favor to Action Line, Foster will take you on the condition you find a girlfriend to join so you can work out together. You need a partner and he prefers females to have female partners. On that premise you can join the class immediately. Or you can wait until he gets.together his special course for girls and women on "Common Sense and Defense." He'll start ihis in a month or so. Q. I'd like (o know If there's any AM radio station lha't carries the Texas Chaparrals basketball team games? II so, what number on the dial? A. Dallas station, KRLD, same as last year. 10SO on your dial; Terry Stcmbridge Is the sportscastcr. Address questions to Actloc l.l.if, Box 30, Abilene. Trias 79601.

(AP) President Nixon, the target of rocks, bricks, bottles, eggs, red flags and other missiles hurled by antiwnr demonstrators in his native state, says he was at- tacked by "an unruly mob that represents the worst in Ameri- ca." Nixon, riding away from a Republican rally Thursday night in the San Francisco bay cily of San Jose, was beseiged by hundreds of obscenity-shout- ing protesters. With him in his limousine were California Gov. Ronald Reagan and U.S. Sen. George Murphy. Later, after Ihe President ar- rived at Ihe Western White in San Clemcnte, a fire caused smoke damage in the oceanside villa and forced a pa- jama-clad Nixon to evacuate. Press Secretary' Ronald L. Zie- gler said the blaze was caused by heat conducted downward from the fireplace in Nixon's second-floor study to wood with- in the hollow wall of the dining room below. The San Jose violence was the most serious aimed at any pres- ident in this country since the assassination of President John K. Kennedy in 1963. F.merging from an auditorium where GOP partisans had given him a warm reception, Nixon climbed atop the hood of his limousine in the g'are of photo floodlights. Facing directly toward his noisy opponents about 50 yards away, he thrust his jaw forward and flung both arms upward. Wilh his fingers, he formed "V" symbols, waving toward the crowd. The mobbing of the Nixon mo- torcade lasita perhaps five min- ules as his car moved through a narrow opening that had been cleared in Ihe crowd by helmet- ed riot police. His limousine and other vehi- cles in the cavalcade were hit repeatedly by large rocks and other objects. Several persons, including a Secret Service a newsman and a televi- sion cameraman suffered minor injuries. The second auto behind Nix- on's vehicle stalled when, after it was hit by a rock, its police- man-driver slammed on the brakes. This produced a chain reaction crash of six NEllDEX Bridge................8A Clarified............2-70 Comici ?C Edilorioli..............8C Horoscope 8A Hoipitol Potienti........78 Obituaries.............'A Snorli 5-7C To Your Good Health------7A 7V loo.............70 Womrn'l Ntwi t seriously brought a loud cheer from the crowd pushing in on each side. A bus carrying members of Nixon's staff and local political dignitaries had four windows smashed by rocks. One of the occupants, show- ered by glass fragments, was Rose Mary Woods, Nixon's per- sonal secretary, who ducked to the floor and exclaimed, "Just like Nixon was stoned in Ihe Venezuelan capital in 1953, when he was vice presi- dent.

Oliver Howard, president of the Citizens National Bank of Abilene, commented that "Even though we are experiencing a light money situation .to some degree, the economy in Abilene is moving forward in a good, steady fashion. We, of course, are experiencing some growth industrially and our college enrollment has increased some. As a whole, it appears to me that our economy is stable and I have every reason to think that we will have good growth in 1971." WALTER JOHNSON, presi- dent of the First National Bank of Abilene, said that "We see some reflection on a local level of some slackening of the econo- my. However, at this time we [eel that the remainder of the year will continue in line with the third quarter of the year. Certainly, future growth of our cily depends on our being able lo attract more Industry, and we are encouraged by the recent announcement of new plant and business locations in Abilene." John Wright, president of the First Slate Bank of Abilene, commented that it has been quite encouraging that Abilene has been able to secure more new industry1. "We are proud of our present industries, and hope lhat everyone will continue to exert their best efforts in acquiring more."

Joe Hodges, president of Abilene National Bank, said that his bank has experienced a steady deposit increase all year long and that it appears lhat this trend will continue. "It's nothing spectacular, but it's a steady gain. Ordinarily during the fall of Ihe year we anticipate an increased tempo of business if Ihe normal course is followed, which indicates that our economy here Is healthy and he said. Hodges said that the loan demand here has been steady, "but we haven't noticed the loan pressures as heavy as at this lime last year. We feel that we are i na fine position deposit wise which has made it possible to meet demands for loans and See BANKS, Pg. 6A Loans 3rd Quarter 2nd Quarter 3rd Quarter Oct. 28, June 30, Del. 21, 1970 1970 1969 Bank of Commerce...... 6478.718 CitiJtni National 42.646.465 41.169.303 First National 32.756.249 First State .........27.534874 27.452.270 TOTAL ABILENE National, Mcrkel___ Home Slate Trent 3A3.525 Fint Stole, Tuscolo TOTAL 3 RURAL BANKS TAYLOR COUNTY TOTAL 116.883.14i osits 3rd Quarter 2nd Quarter 3rd Quarter Oci 28, June 30, Oct. 21. 1970 1970 1969 9524615 Fin.t Stole Bonk........

OMAR BURLESON hundreds honor congressman Omar Burleson Has His Day in Abilene By MERLE WATSON Reporter-News Staff Writer It was Omar Truman Burleson day in Abilene Friday. And hundreds of Abilcnians and area residents gathered at the Abilene Civic Center fnr a luncheon lo honor the man who represented the ]7lh Congressional District in Iho United States House o Representatives for nearly years. Paying tribute to the congressman was Ed Wishcamper, president of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce, whose Legislative Committee sponsored the event. "Few people are privileged lo serve in the United Statts Wijhcampcr said. "A total of 535, out of a population of 200 million serve." "TO GET THERE it all is one of Ihe highest achievements in public life that a man can lie said. "To stay there any length of lime is a tribute lo more than just the incumbent's luck. "We arc honoring one of these here not just one of these Our Own Omar Burleson." Wishcampcr said that the fact Burleson was being honored four days before the general election of 1970 "speaks more eloquently in tribute" than anylhing he can say. the Chamber president said Burlcsnn has a distinction no other man "who h.ns lived among us has ever earned." "He has represented the 17lh District in Congress longer than anyone in history. He has served longer in Congress than an> one who has represented this area since Abilene was born in 1881." WISHCAMPER traced th3 history of representation of Ihe 17lh District until 1916 when Burleson was first elected to Congress. Comparing the size of the district in when it was composed of 12 counties, lo its size counties, Wishcamper said Ihe district lacks very lilllc of one- cighlh of Ihe stale's 251 counties, "and in land area it is Markets Mixed Al 4lh Hour End Industrials were m> .fid, trans, pnrlslion was down .95. and utili- ties were up .42 at Ihe end of the fourth hour of trading on Ihe New York Slock Exchange.

"But as Omar Burleson's dislrict has grown, ?o has he grown in quality of service to his constituency, and in influence and effectiveness in Washington." Wishcamper said. He said that those who have occasion lo frequent the Washinglon scene In the interests of Abilene and this area can give eloquent testimony to the respect in which Omar Burleson is held by his bolh in the "House and in the Senate; and in the various departments, bureaus and agencies which make up the almost impenetrable jungle of government in Washington. SI'CAKING on Burleson's .sen-ice in Congress, Wish- camper said he served for many years as chairman of Ihe House Administration Committee before he voluntarily surren- dered it. Wishcamper said he gave up this position when he was elected by the Democratic Party caucus on July to be a member of Ihe Ways and Means Committee of the House.
