Pinlo was at the wheel of an ambulance and he made a run out to the southern part of town to pick up a would-be suicide. He and an assistant gathered the young lady into Ihc ambu- lance, jumped in themselves and started the race lo Hen-, drick. Memorial Hospital. route was north on Sayles and Sayles had al each inter- section a dip. Siren blaring and red light Hashing, Pinto pushed the ambulance and it did jump somewhat at each intersection dip. At the second leap the would- be suicide, she 'who had just chosen for hei-self death at her own hand, rose up from the stretcher and yelled at Pinto, "Slow down, you idiot! Whatya1 tryin' f do? Kill Mention of Cole Younger, famed outlaw of late last cen- tury who in his calmer and later days visited Bnird, brought forth from E. W. Berry, longtime Abi- lene business and civic leader, a tale. Younger was once in the carnival business hereabouts. It was back in 1906, Berry rc- callsj and he, a most youthful electrical engineer from Phila- delphia via Chicago, was in Sey- mour, Texas. Berry had come originally to Maybelle, near Seymour, on a "homesuckors one ot those deals where for Ihe railroad would provide round- trip Pullman fare from Chicago In hopes it could sell travelers Innd in the Texas area newly be- ing developed. Berry had come wilhout paying Ihe fare. He had con- vinced the railroad he was so anxious to buy land he won a free trip lo Texas. Young Berry drifted from Maybelle lo Seymour where he was employed by the local "light plant and flour mill." And '.a carnival came to loivn, the "Cole Younger Nicholson Carnival Co., as Berry re- cals the name. Carnivals of that lime tended lo carry with them their own portable "light Berry says. Many towns had no elec- tricity and other towns had not enough to spare for the carnival to tie onto iocal systems. Carnivals were something new to Easterner Berry. Certainly he had never heard ot an outlaw named "Cole And in Seymour Yoimger's electric plant went on Ihe blink and Berry was called to help. The carnival moved on lo Haskell and Berry with il, still tinkering with the genera- tor and sluff. Berry traveled with Younger and carnival for a week or more and never learned the identity of his employer. It was some time later that he found out the laics of the Younger Brothers, their cousins .Icssc James and Brothers and the blazing tales of outlawry they wrote in the days following the Civil War. And Berry? He finished his carnival work. Went lo work with Ihe Haskell I.ifihl, Ice and Walcr Co., joined the Humble organization in 1020 and, since 1932, has been one of Abilcne's most accomplished and active citizens.

It was an apparent admission that (lie 4-year-old Frondizi re- gime, after rebuffing military pressures for 11 tense days, was finally conceding defeat. Combat troops armed with ma- chine guns maintained control of Government House.

The rebellious tail appeared to be delaying an unconfirmed coup d'etat. Array and navy units were in control of all major strategic cen- ters throughout the nation. Frondizi was left unharmed at his residence but surveillance was maintained outside the walls of the house. As the president and the nation waited for the next move in the long crisis, Raul Garcion, Fron- dizi's personal aide, told news- men: "The situation is at an end. The' armed forces are in agreement with each other. All is over."
