Jesse Wooldridge to face forgery The flood swept the two cars Wave of Opposition Forces Colombia Chief to Resign have permitted GOP Gov. Vernon Thomson to appoint a U. S. senator to fill the unexpired term of the late Joseph Mc- Carthy. Results of the secret balloting by the GOP, which con- trols both houses of the state Legislature, appear to have spiked speculation that Thomson would be given special appointive powers now denied him by state law. However, Thomson still must decide when and if to call a special election to fill McCarthy's seat. Thomson, in his first term, has not re- vealed his plans as yet. According to a party spokesman only one of 23 state Senate Republicans who attended a secret caucus favored offering the bill. Three did not vote and two were absent. There were also indications that for the proposal for appointive power was losing favor in the As- sembly. House Speaker Robert Marotz (R-Shawano) said: "Speaking strictly as an indi- vidual I do not think such a bill! should be introduced. That would j be a mistake at this time. The only question that should be con-', sidered is whether an election! should be held or the office left! vacant until the regular election." The term expires at the end -of ecutive Committee. State GOP chairman France Lone Holdout on Use of Suez LONDON to the In- evitable, 14 of the 15 nations in the Suez Canal Users' Assn. are ready to let their shippers use the Egyptian waterway again. Only France held out at a SCUA meeting here last night. The French said they find it im- possible "in present circum- stances to recommend the use of the canal to member states." The other 14 nations indicated they had no power to keep pri- vate shipping out of the canal. They made plain their ships prob- ably will begin using the Suez soon. End Unified Action The association, which Western nations formed last summer in an effort to bring Egyptian President Nasser to terms by unified action, agreed its members could resume freedom of action with regard to will be held, the canal. The SCUA nations previously had advised their shippers to avoid using the waterway until, they could see Nasser's plan for i [7 its operation. The plan, announced i. last week, calls for Egyptian op- eration of the canal, arbitration of i disputes, unrestricted use of thej canal in accordance with the 1888 Constantinople Convention, no more than 1 per cent a year in- crease in canal tolls, cooperation between Egypt and the shippers (though SCUA was not mentioned! specifically) and dedication of 25 per cent of the canal's income to improvements. U. S. Favors Trial Test Taking the lead for the West, the United States told the -Secu- rity Council there was plenty about the plan it didn't like but the Egyptians should be given a trial. Except for France, the SCUA members took much the same at- titude. They issued a communique saying they "reserve existing le- gal rights" under the 1888 con- vention. The SCUA members are the United States, Britain, France, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Netherlands, West Germany, Sweden, Den- mark, Turkey, Iran and Spain. charges. Shepard is a native of Prineville, Ore. After Wednesday's incident the sheriff said he would recommend leniency if Shepard is convicted. The two were on the last lap of their trip to Prineville when a cloudburst hit and the flood wa- ter spread across U. S. 97 about 15 miles north of Madras. The sheriff unlocked one of Shepard's handcuffs and they abandoned their car and started to run, but stopped when they saw another car stranded in the raging water.
