The petition, filed for Yancy by John Reid, local attorney, says Mrs. Perkins' denial was alleged- ly based on the fact that the pro posed business is situated in an area designated as residential by Impact ordinance. Yancy's suit attacks validity of the zoning ordinance, makes other accusations and asks that the court order a hearing and Mrs. Perkins be required to exe- cute the applications. In this event, the applications Ihcn would be presented to County Judge Reed Ingalsbe. The mandamus action is the sec- ond filed against Mrs. Perkins in the prolonged dispute at Im- pact. Still on file is a suit in which C. C. H. Inc. sought a similar judgment. No hearing has ever been held on the C. C. H. suit, which was filed last October. However, it has been reported and was stated by Impact Mayor Dallas Perkins that the C. C. H. application would be signed should it be presented to Mrs. Perkins again.

GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower climaxed a slam-bang attack on the Kenne dy administration Friday nigh with a call for a substantial reduc tion in the peacetime record de fense budget. The former president also de manded cuts in multibillion-dollar outlays for what he called "low sriority" space programs and de- nounced Democratic plans for a Jan. 1 tax reduction while the Budget is in deficit. Wave after wave of applause- mixed with cheers, whistles am mrrahs greeted Eisenhower's rard-hitting political assault on the Democrats, delivered to Republicans who paid StOO a plate to help replenish the GOP wai chest for the November congres- sional elections. He charged the Kennedy admin stration with "floundering" aim- lessly and desperately behind a ront of but re served his hardest fire for what ie called wasteful and needless deficit spending. "I must record my personal be- lief that substantial amounts in our current defense budgets re- flect unjustified fears, plus a re- luctance in some quarters to re- linquish outmoded Ei- senhower said. "Accordingly, I personally be I am sure, very lit- .le company in either the defense budget should be sub- stantially reduced. "At least, all America under- stands that every defense dollar wastefully expended, that every defense dollar needlessly appro- iriated, weakens this nation. "It is always necessary to ex- amine critically these appropria- ions and to stop assuming that mere spending means increased strength." The Defense Department's budget request for the fiscal year beginning July 1, including mili- :ary assistance to other countries, totalled billion. Eisenhower charged that the Kennedy administration "seems almost driven to alienate major elements of the business commu- nity" and said recent events sug- gest it wants to "dictate the eco- nomic decisions of management." To Republicans assembled in two hotel ballrooms for a jlate dinner, Eisenhower said nembers of the GOP will main- lain bipartisanship on foreign af- fairs throughout the coming con- gressional election campaign. But he said the party has a to protect the "po- itical maladministration, mal- functioning and maladjustment in Washington." "Quite obviously, this adminis- .ration is aimlessly and a bit desperately the surging financial, fis- cal arid economic currents of our irnes." Eisenhower declared. "Its difficulty appears to stem primarily from an inadequate un- derstanding of our American sys- how it really works, of the psychological, motivational and economic factors that make it ebb and flow." Eisenhower revived the "mess in Washington" phrase which he used in winning the presidency in 1952. He told the Republicans they would never succumb to. a "sterile and went on: "Mere resistance and com- plaint, and criticism of the mess back in Washington, will never be enough." WEATHER V. S.

BOYCE STRONG dies with father third victim 3 Drown Near Breck BRECKENRIDGE A strong undertow in a "swimming hole" on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River 17 miles northwest of Breckenridge caused the death of two prominent Breckenridge men and a young man Friday aft- ernoon. Drowned were Joseph Carl Knight, 42. and his son, Joseph Carl (Joey) Knight Jr., 13, and Boyce Strong, 41. The trio lost their lives while swimming below the Texas Dam on the Clear Fork at the Muleshoe Ranch Friday about p.m. The bodies were recovered late in the afternoon. Other members of the swim- ming party were Jerry Wayne Raglin, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Raglirt of Breckenridge, and two sons of Mr. Strong, Rusty, 15, and Ricky, 11. Jerry said that the party had left Breckenridge about a.m. Friday for an outing at the dam site, planning to return home late in the afternoon in time for the aoys to play in LitUe League Baseball games. The two men were coaches of Little League teams. Jerry related that all of the group with the exception of Ricky lad gone into the water below the dam to clear away debris so they could enjoy swimming. He saicl :gan clearing away the logs and brush when a strong under- current fulled all five of the swim- mers under the water. Jerry said that the undertow was so strong that it wa.s only with great difficulty that he was able to swim to the surface to ob- tain some air in his lungs before being dragged under again. The young man said that he and Rusty were able to assist each other in the water and to make their way to the shore, where Ricky helped them to climb up on the bank. Jerry said that he did not see the other three struggling in the water, as he lost consciousness for a time after he reached shore and was violently ill. He said Rusty stayed at the scene to assist those in the water if he could while he (Jerry) went in the car to the ranch home of Mr. and Mrs. M. R.

Engineers Slap Offers by Firms NEW YOHK engi- the airlines had broken off com? neers have called a strike against Eastern Air Lines and Pan Amer- ican World Airways for 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Saturday unless new contracts are reached. They rejected as "completely unsatisfactory" the proposed set- tlement worked out for a similar dispute between engineers and Trans World Airlines. Engineers listed three reasons for turning down the proposal: 1. It removes the 20-year-old requirement that flight engineers must possess aircraft mechanic licenses. 2. It "gives no real protec- tion for our self-representation rights." 3. It does not settle economic issues, nor provide an acceptable method of settling them. Pan Am' reacted immediately with a declaration that, "We're going to operate and we're going to continue to operate." But the spokesman did not immediately say how the line would manage without flight engineers. Eastern President Malcolm A. Maclntyre said, "This strike would prove complete irresponsi- bility on the part of flight engin- eers and a total disregard of the public welfare. It would leave Eastern Air Lines no alternative but to discontinue all operations." Maclntyre urged the engineers to "reconsider their ill-advised ac- which he termed a defiance of President Kennedy's specific request. The statement from Ronald Brown, president of the Flight Engineers International Associa- tion AFL-CIO, noted that the TWA settlement reached with gov- ernment help had not yet been ac- cepted by TWA rank-and-file mem- bers. Brown, who attended the closed meeting here of the union's ne- gotiating teams for Pan Am and Eastern, declared: "We are be- ing driven to a strike by the car- riers who are hiding behind a gov- ernment that now has picked us to see that (sic) it can be as lough with labor as it has been with steel." This was a reference; to White House action last April that prevented a steel price in- crease.

The heart of the two-year-old dispute between the engineers and the airlines, as well as the Air Line Pilots Association, AFL-CIO, is: how to reduce ihe four-man cockpit crews of jet airliners to the three men recommended by a presidential advisory commis- sion. Neither the engineers pnion nor the pilots union wants to lose a man. The proposed TWA settlement provides that engineers would learn to become pilots through training given by the airlines and that engineers would be given preference over pilots for the third seat in the jet cockpit. Fast Trading Drops Stocks To New Low NEW YORK (API-Stock prices were hammered to new 1962 lows Trading was heavy as two" waves of selling, sandwiched around a feeble drove' prices of several market down and more a share.
