A friend of mine bought a "dirt" or "trail motorcycle and converted It into one. Now. he's haying trouble getting II licensed. It's been owned by a number' of different people and tie deal- er who originally'sold it Is out of busi- ness. How can he certificate of title so he' can', license It for use on thev street? II ain't easy..Apparently a rebuilt vehicle. If he bought 'pieces of! dif- ferent vehicles, he'll need'a certified bill of sale (signed-by the "seller-before a Notary part of the vehicle.he's built. in: other words, if he bought a chassis from.: one a motor.from another, he's got'to .have a certified bill of sale on each one: Once'- he all the evidence togethery-lell him; to see. Vevliri Schirader at the lax office in the county courthouse. If there's a way in ihe world, it can be li- censed, Schrader knows how to dp it. The reason for all these restrictions is that a few dishonest people have been stealing motorbikes; dismantling them, going off somewhere and pulling.them back together, thinking -they can fool somebody into think- ing it's a new bike and gel it licensed. Q. Has Rock Hudson ever, been mar- ried? A. Yes, once to.Phyllis-Gates, an agent's secretary 1955. (alias Rock) had bragged in his younger days that he wouldnll marry until he was 30 years old. When he was 29 years and 357 days old, he married Miss Gates. They divorced three years later. Q. In the1 Interests of saving fuel and conserving energy. If the city could synchronze tbe lights on Grape Street. Al 35 and even 25, I hit three, of Ibe five lights on red. Stopping and starting Is one of the greatek nses of fuel the automobile makes. Once the pislons are moving, the tar' gives off less waste. A. True, and your traffic engineer is genu- inely concerned about conserving gasoline. Those lights ;on Grape are supposed to he synchronized but must be spol-qhecked peri- odically. The traffic engineer will send somebody, out to check them over and get them back in synch: Q. Send me a pamphlet or something, would yon? I want to know if it's legal to play; catch in the street. Somebody told me it wasn't okay. A. Wellj it's.complicatcd. Technically, it's probably all right since ordinances don't prohibit it, but slate traffic laws say street's arc designed for vehicular traffic, not for recreation. You know, you could be a traffic hazard. But more important, you could be endangering yourself and that is the best reason not to do it. And that's why the city spends many dollars to build and maintain city parks. The city isn't going to file on you if some- body complains but if you cause an accident you could be susceptible to civil liability. Q. We are two women, age 21, who would like to -find someone lo (each us how to swim after 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We called the YMCA but their lessons are In the mornings. A.

Ireland 15-Day Strike Suspended By KD BLANCHE Associated Press Writer BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) The Protestant'.ex- tremist Ulster Workers' Coun- cil today suspended the 15- day-old strike that paralyzed .Northern Ireland's economy and brought down the British province's government. Jim Smyth, spokesman for the council, said strikers were being told lo return to work because "we don't feel there is any point in prolonging thfe. hardship." But he led open Ihe possibil- ity that unless their demands were met (he'strike, will begin again. It-has been suspended, not called off completely, he said. Smyth said there would be a phased -return to work, and thai heavyjindusrry could not .resume until Monday because sufficient power would not be available until then. However, .Ihe council sent some utility workers back to work today. In London, Britain's admin- istrator for Northern Ireland, Merlyn said Britain will negotiate '.only with elected representatives and not with the strike leaders: ''I shall give no concessions or negotiations to people at- tempting to change the politi- 15 City Students Post Perfect Marks cat situation in this way.

Ih'e provincial government, but eventually power sharing by Protestants and Catholics would be "the only way out of the Northern Ireland problem."

Catholic members of the Ex- ecutive refused to resign, but a British government state- ment said the provincial ad- ministration could not function without Protestants. In London, political sources said Prime Minister Harold M'ilson was desperately anx- ious that power-sharing should continue in the embattled province. Wilson called a meeting of senior ministers to consider a way out of the cri- sis.

W. A. :Crisw'eU, a former SBC presidenl, will present a motion at the meeting June 11-13 that be ap- pointed to study the possibility of changing the SBC's name and lhat Ihey make recom- mendations. Criswcll, minister of First Baplist Church m Dallas, said he would probably suggest Ihe name "Continental Baplist Convention" .for- the nation's largest non-Catholic evangeli- cal He an- nounced his concern aboul the name in an article he pre- pared for the Baptist Stand- ard, news publication of the Haplist General convention.of Texas. PLAIN and simple, truth of the matter is lhat the Southern Baptist Convention is no longer ihe Southern Baptist Criswcll wrote. "It is Northern and Western and Eastern as well as South- ern." "I favor Continental, be- cause others such as General, National and American have all been pre-emplcd by other Baptist Criswcll said. Dr. II. 0. Wynne, minister of South Side Uajilis! Church, agrees with Criswell. He said that lie, loo, Ihinks a name change is needed and that "Continental Baptist" is n good one. "I AGREE Wilh him whole- Dr. Wynne said. 'Southern Baptist' gives a geographical location, yet we have Southern Baptists all over the world. "I don't know if the "propos- al will carry, but it is a move in the righl he add- ed. Dr. Wynne emphasized lhat Ihe change would be in name, nol in doctrine and that the body will always stand for Ihe same principles. The Rev. Bill Austin, minis- ter of U n.i.v c r s i t y Baptist Church said he thought there might be a need for'change but he does, not favor Cris- wcll's proposal. "THAT PABT1CULA R name docs not appeal lo Ihe Rev. Austin said. "It isn't definitive at he said, add- ing lhat "Continental" to many people suggests Europe. More reluctant lo' sec a name change is the Kev.-Mack liidlchoover, minister-of Pi: oncer Drive Daplist Church.' "I am very happy to be identified as a Southern .Bap- he said.
