Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 14, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST-CRESCENT Of Los Angeles High Winds and Low Humidity Help Speed Flames Los Angeles A brush fire, racing wildly out of con- trol, burned to the edge of one Los Angeles suburb today and threatened another. An unfavorable forecast o: high winds, heat in the 90s and "acutely low" humidity made control of the blaze a question mark. More than 1.000 men have been called to the scene in the San Gabriel mountains 15 miles north of here since the fire started at noon yester- day. Thirteen planes carrying fire-retarding borate solution started bombing hot spots this morning. During the early morning hours flames leaped right to the doorsteps of S30.000 and homes in the foothill community of La Canada be- fore they were checked. They came within a mile of Cal- tech's jet propulsion labora- tory, key space research cen- ter. It was in no immediate danger. Wind gusts up to 35 were driving the fire toward another foothill town, Altade- na. Out of Control The fire consumed more than acres of prime brush, needed to control run- off of winter rains. It was out of control along its entire 25-mile perimeter. Center of the blaze was in a rugged, isolated area near Brown Mountain in Angeles National forest. Only one dirt road enters it, and the fire had jumped it. This meant no equipment could be gotten in. The only way it could be fought was by hand and from the air. A'pall of xyhite smoke man- tledsthe mountains.'-Fine ash- es sifted down like snow. Last night the leaping orange flames made a spectacular picture.- Flames lit the slate-gray hills overlooking the Rose bowl in Pasadena, south of the blaze: The fire is blazing along a 15-mile perimeter. A spokes- man for the county fire de- partment said it is believed the blaze was caused by aj careless smoker. Girl Testifies for Father Accused of Murdering Mother Chicago Nancy Han- sen, 6, was to take the stand today as a defense witness at her father's trial for nfurder- ing her mother. Judge Robert E. English of criminal court ruled yester- day the little girl could testi- fy. His ruling scored a major point for the defense. With the jury excluded, Nancy told a crowded courtroom Saturday that her father Duncan, 29, did not arrive at the Hansen home until after she found her mother dead. Hansen has.contended that his ex-wife Was slain by a prowler. He said his first knowledge of the death of his 24-year-old fonmer wife. Su- san, came when he telephon- ed her home and Nancy told him, "I can't wake mommy up."

Sees Peril in Arms Buildup Mexican Leader Says Conflict Would Follow United'Nations, President Adolfo Lopez Mate- os of Mexico warned the Unit- ed Nations today that a build- up of arms to save peace can only end in war. He said the future of the United Nations depends upon solution to the problem of disarmament. In a speech before the 82- nation general assembly he declared: "History teaches quite clearly that it is an illusion to believe that peace can be won and supported by instru- ments of war. We know that ultimately these weapons, ac- cumulated with a desire to avoid war, will threaten peace and then irreparably shatter it." Lopez Mateos said the big powers possessing weapons of mass destruction are "in hon- or bound to desist from ing them." i 52 A, B, C, D APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER Brush Blaze Perils Suburbs ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Steel Industry Says Inflation Primary Problem in Dispute Valuable Data Gathered by Explorer VII Circles Globe Every Hour and 41 Minutes BY HOWARD BENEDICT Charges Union's Only Alternative Is Threat Of National Shortage Washington The striking Steelworkers union the country a choice between another inflationary wage crease in steel, or go without the industry's chief gotiator said today.
