TEXAS_ t-AGE I wife and four children. The amount I of the aid was not disclosed. Haggerty said on applying for the aid. "if I get welfare money, I'll pay it back just as soon as I start collecting from the state." Along with that of other .state legislators, Haggerty's pay was blocked by a court injunction ob- tained by a Jackson taxpayer. The taxpayer challenged legality of a pay increase voted by the legislators which would bring their yearly salary to plus for expenses. Michigan legislators, be- fore the raise was voted, were paid S3 a day for each day the legisla- ture was in session.

He then began kicking her. The incident occurred in front of the Parr house and Patricia's screams o! fear and pain brought her mother running out of the front door. This caused the attacker to cease his assault and race across the street into the darkness of Ellwood Park. Miss Parr was taken ii.lo the house and _a doctor was called. She was treated for bruises and cuts about the face and mouth. Two police scout cars, alerted by Mrs. Parr, cruised the neighbor- hood, soon returning with a suspect I they had picked up. He was im- I mediately identified by the Parr girl and, according to Mrs. Parr, admitted his guilt to her and the He was placed in custody pending further investigation and possible filing of charges. Miss Parr was still suffering from swollen lips and shock yesterday afternoon. Her mother told re- porters she "was still quite shaky." Mrs. Parr said she didn't know exactly what time the attack took place but was certain it was between 11 and 12" o'clock Saturday night. Yank Shot Down By Greek Reds ATHENS, Jan. 23 Col.
