This is about a quiet visit he paid last week to a little Baird girl. Linda Dill is a senior in Baird High School. She fell in love with the Bullwinkle nonsense when it came along, and since she has marked artistic talent, she made some tiny dolls to represent the characters, wrote a script for them and let them "perform" for various Baird classes. One day she bundled up her Bullwinkle dolls and mailed them to Jay Ward. That started a friendship-by- maB. Jay wrote that the dolls were on exhibit in his Hollywood studios. He sent Linda a Bull- winkle clock and a battery-op- erated Bullwinkle figure. Lin- da, in turn, got up a "petition" in Baird seeking statehood for Moosylvania. Then it developed that Jay Ward would be in Dallas for a show in mid-November and he wrote-an invitation to Linda to drop by il she could. Linda would have but six- weeks exams conflicted and she had to write to decline the in- vitation. On Wednesday evening last week a long distance call came to Baird from Jay Ward at Dal- las. He asked to speak to Lin- da. Then he learned. Linda is deaf, her mother told Jay, so the message would have to be relayed. That was the first Jay knew that his young friend is not as others. Spinal meningitis when she was 6 left her with handi- caps. She is deaf, has speech impairment and is confined to a wheelchair. Jay Ward's call to Linda came on a Wednesday evening.

Jay Ward put on a very spe- cial show for Linda. Then he bent and kissed Lin- da's hand and got in his Bull- winkle Wagon and drove back to Dallas.

His blast at the newspaper came during a discussion at the end of Thursday's city commis- sion meeting in which Commis- sioner Truman Kirk sought a clarification of policy regarding coverage meetings. of commission Kirk had started off the discus leeunls sion quietly, when Kaerwer said, Said Kirk: "It's disturbing to "I think the newspaper is caus- ._ tltt. nnrVl- us and disturbing to the press. They're part of that split too right now." 'Harmonize' Turning to Ed Wishcamper, managing editor of the Reporter- News, who had risen to answer Kaerwer's charge, Kirk said, "We want you to harmonize with us." Harmony, Dignity Urged by Mayor In a tone of deep concern, Abi- lene Mayor C. R. Kinard read city commissioners Thursday aft- ernoon a letter from him to them, calling for more harmonious city jovernment. The letter, reprinted below in its entirety, outlines four points on which he asked commission- ers' "thoughtful analysis." Following reading of the letter, he said, "I hope after you have read this, you can join me in this tern." The next item listed on he commission agenda was a mblic hearing on the annexation if Wylie. However, after his open- ng statement, the .commission rate study. After the meeting, Kinard said only that "the letter speaks for itself.' Text of Kinard's letter is as fol- lows: "Gentlemen: "Because of many events of the past few months, I feel com- pelled to make the following statement addressed to you, the City Commission. "We have been duly elected to conduct the affairs of the City of Abilene, an obligation which means that careful consideration should be given to all our en- deavors to see that they always serve the best interest of our whole community.

At this point Wishcamper rose and said, "The split existed be- fore we commented editorially." He was referring to an editorial in the Nov. 11 issue of the Report- er News criticizing Kaerwer's and Commissioner Wiley Connal- ly's actions on the telephone rate investigation, and then- proposal to repeal the personal tax on au- tos. The editorial also stated the need for more harmony on the commission. (A letter by Mayor C. R. Kinard to the other com- missioners on the subject of har- mony appears on page one of this issue.) "I can show you dozens of peo- ple in town that will say the news- paper is causing the Kaer- wer replied. 'Split' Earlier Wishcamper continued: "There was a split on the commission be- fore you and Kirk came on the commission." He insisted the dis- cussions and actions of the com- mission should be reported to the public.

The Red Chinese have been feed- ing on anti-American criticism in Pakistan over arms shipments to India and have been making prom- ises of deals in an effort to steer Pakistan out of the Western camp. A 91-word communique aonounc- jig the agreement came after the U.S. assistant secretary of state, W. Averell Harriman, and Dun- can Sandys, Britain's secretary for Commonwealth relations, went through a series of conferences with Indian Prime Minister Nehru and President Mohammed Ayub Khan of Pakistan. While Harriman conferred with Ayub Khan at the Pakistani cap- ital, Rawalpindi, Sandys flew from there to New Delhi for a quick talk with Nehru, then back again. Reliable sources said Sandys did most of the talking in the media- tion effort. The communique issued jointly here and in Rawalpindi said both countries decided to start talks "so as to enable them to live side by side in peace and friendship." In Rawalpindi, Harriman told newsmen: "I am very happy about this agreement and I hope that the present circumstances will make it possible for both sides to come to an agreement satis- factory to each."

The President has recently described this period as [Kissibly an important turning point in the direction the world is moving. The atmosphere in the unusual- ly lengthy meeting was described as frank and businesslike, lack- ng any air of tension. U.S. of- 'icials retained the belief that some progress had been made on the Cuban problem before Miko- yan arrived at the White House ate in the afternoon. But they said afterward a number of points have yet to be resolved. Kennedy and Mikoyan spent a little time on differences between Washington and Moscow on nu- clear test and disarmament agreements, and dwelt briefly on the situation in Laos.
