Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 6, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin Pick Conservatives In Britain Voting Macmillan 'Absolutely Sure' Party Will Win Thursday, Odds Against Laborite Victory Rise flood of bets went down on the conservative party today to win a third term, and the odds against victory for the opposition la- borites rose. Odds on the conservatives dropped to 2 to a bettor had to put up to win from the bookie in case of j a conservative victory in the national election Thursday. Odds against the laborites went out to 2 to 1, promising S2 from the bookie for each bet if labor wins. The conservatives had been quoted as favorites by Brit- ain's legal bookmakers ever the campaign started three weeks ago, but the odds had been about "4 to 5 in re- cent days. The labor party was quoted at even money over the weekend and at 6 to 4 yesterday. Prime Minister Harold Mac- millan said he is "absolutely sure" his conservative forces will win. Prestige in World "But- Britain's prestige in the world depends on the ma- jority the country gives he.added in a new effort to link his campaign cause with the prospective east-west sum- mit meeting. leader of Britain's other major party, laborite Hugh Gaitskell, wound up his cam- paign with a television speech devoted mostly fo his party's promises for the home higher pensions and repeal of the sales tax on basic house- hold commodities. Gaitskell pledged a labor government would -pursue a "good neighbor" policy abroad. Hitting once again at the conservative government's 1956 attack on Egypt with the French and Israelis, he said the laborites would "Never use force except in self-de- -fense" and would "Always-try to 'get- disputes settled peace- fully.'.' Whistle-Stop- Trip v JMacmillan. made Nhls state- -ment" of-confidence "in.the out- come of the election after re- turning from a mile whistle-stop tour during which the 65-year-old prime minister spoke to an estimated voters. Meanwhile, Morgan Phil- secretary of the labor party, criticized Macmillan for pitching 'the conservative cause on the claim he was the original ice-breaker of the cold war and the driving force be- hind the whole summit idea. Gaitskell in his television talk said there "really is no difficulty about finding the money" for the home front program the laborites are promising. Sales Tax Off "Tax revenue increases au- he asserted. "That is why I find it difficult to understand why the Tories are making such a fuss be- cause I said we would-not in- crease the income tax and would take the purchase (sales) tax off necessities." Conservative s p o k esmen have claimed labor's program would cost a billion pounds a year and would bring booming Britain to bankruptcy. The laborites say in addition to increased taxes derived from the ex- panding economy, they will gei more money by tightening up on "expense account" tax deductions and by taxing cap- ital gains, now exempt in Brit- ain. Weary party campaigners buckled down to final days of battle to win 'don't over Britain's an impond- erable, poker-faced fifth of the electorate. According to public opinion pollsters, there are close to 7i million men and women still undecided whether to vote labor, liberal or con- servative hi the election to fill parliament's 630-seat house of commons. Third Term Their decision will deter- mine whether Macmillan's conservatives return to power for the third straight term, whether Gaitskell heads a government of laborites or whether a tiny liberal faction holds the balance of power in an otherwise evenly divided house. The once powerful liberals sought out the don't knows vote. Liberal leader Jo Grim- ond wound up a helicopter campaign tour with this battle order to his headquarters: "Capture the unprecedented percentage of don't knows. The political harvest of the century now awaits the liber- al reapers." The atmosphere at labor headquarters was subdued. Phillips told newsmen that la- bor would win a working ma- jority in the new parliament if voting was heavy Thursday and if party workers did their jobs. Conservative headquarters seemed a little more self as- sured.with great hopes placed on Macmillan's final televi- tonight. Lord Hailsham, conserva- tive chairman, send a message to party workers saying a vic- tory this time for Macmillan and his team will "Destroy forever the grisly peril of a socialist state in Britain."

U. S. air force weathermen said Amy was expected to bring 55-mile-an- hour winds to the southern is- land of Kyushu. Japan's central meteoro- logical agency warned Amy may develop into a typhoon before it completes its ex- pected sweep across southern and central Japan.

Psychiatrist Explains How 'Green Lady1 Caused Terror psychi- atrist explained today how the 'Green Lady" frightened some people hi West Philadel- phia. She was stunning, she was dressed all in green; and she was walking through, schools with a knife, harassing chil- dren, even stabbing some. Or so the worried people said. And police in West Phil- adelphia, where crime has been pronounced, received more than two dozen calls. The stories were approxi- mately the same, and usually vague. No one saw the green lady. But that didn't lessen the concern. The callers were passing on reliable reports from eye witnesses. Even stu- dents told their principals about her. Searched Schools Police checked the reports and rushed to search four school buildings, just as they would if someone reported a aomb. There was no green lady, no stabbed "children." The scare lasted two days last week and then was forgotten. But the green lady was not nexplicable, at least not to Dr. Kenneth Appel, head of lie psychiatry department at the University of Pennsylvan- ia. She might have had her birth, at least in part, in the national concern over crime and violence, Dr. Appel said, just as the flying saucer stor- ies of a few years ago might iave been caused, in part, by ;he growing awareness that in- :erplanetary space would soon ae possible. Period of Fear 'The power of suggestion is Dr. Appel explained, 'Especially in times of con- cern or fear, as in periods of war or unusual crime. People see or hear things that don't actually exist. This rumor the green have been deter- mined by the psychology of the person who first -had the experience. A shadow, or per- haps a woman seen far off, might stimulated him. The flying saucer reports might have been stimulated by a cloud. "Imagination does the rest, and sometimes it takes only the slightest provocation to create mass hypnotism ev- eryone seeing the same thing. "This Dr. Appel said, "Might be primitive but it is an often common way people have of dealing with problems in the air like crime and violence." Atlas Missile Has New Cone White Tip Used In Test Today At Atlantic Range Cape Canaveral, Fla. An Atlas missile carrying a new tactical type nose cone roared over the Atlantic early today on a successful mile test flight. The new cone, nearly 12 feet tall, was gleaming white atop the 80-foot missile. The air force calls this its second generation nose cone and plans eventually-to use it in place of the smaller cones which now top the Atlas, Ti- tan and Thor missiles. The new cone is designed for faster re-entry through the earth's atmosphere and probably will cut in half the time in which an anti-missile device can intercept it. There was no plan to recov- er the cone. Instruments were to radio information on its performance. j The test also was another in a series to improve the accur-j acy of the Atlas, which be-j came ready for combat use almost four weeks ago. Weight Bill May be Vetoed Additional Pound Limit Would Slice Road Aids Fo5t-Crnecnt Madison A bill of the past legislative session to allow ad- dition of pounds to high- way truck weights appeared today to be headed for a veto by Gov. Gaylord Nelson be- cause its being signed would cut off federal highway con- struction aids. The governor's office re- leased the text of a letter from Ellis L. Armstrong, U.S. commissioner, of public roads, stating it was his opinion that the proposed Wisconsin law would establish weight limits higher than those of 1956 fed- eral legislation. This conflist would result in a situation 'which prohibits apportion- ment of interstate funds un- der such Armstrong said. Loss of Aids Nelson told a news confer- ence Monday that he planned to ask the attorney general's office for its opinion of Arm- strong's stand. If it is true that the increased truck weights would result in a loss of federal highway aids, Nel- son said he would not sign the bill. Armstrong's letter, dated Sept. 28, was sent to Harold Plummer, chairman of the state highway commission. Because of its content, it then was forwarded to the gover- nor's office. The letter appeared to mean that, if the Wisconsin truck Tuesday, October 6, 1959 Appleton Post-Crescei A hand- radio operator Dutch Sailor Waives Extradition; to Bostoi Grand Jury Indicts Willem Van Rie On Murder Charge in Death of Divorcee Stanley wife Spector of Washington u sity, St. Louis, who ha ployed the victim three as a research assistai Woman, 2 M Found Shot A!

Fontana referred to ques- tioning of Van Rie prior to his arrest. Police said he admit- ted having struck Miss Kauff- man during a quarrel in he.r cabin aboard the freighter Utrecht. He denied, however, having any knowledge, of her death or of how her body got into the water. A Suffolk county grand jury in Boston yesterday indicted Van Rie on a murder charge. The 20 men and three women of the grand jury held that Van Rie "By assault and beat- ing did kill and murder" Miss Milwaukee and two men were foun to death Monday night, said they were victims double murder and suic lit.
