Tlie street I live on Isn't paved, but nntll about a week ago It was a good dirt road. Then a road grader or some such mechanical device came along and "Improved" (he street, leaving It a roadbed full of rocks and miniature boulders. What gives? Is (his some sort of new technique for cleaning the streets or does someone on the City Council sell tires for a living? A. Maybe somebody sells gravel; those "miniature boulders" are gravel that was hauled in to cover the street. Street Supt. Charley While said all natural gravel has some large rocks in it and several days alter the gravel is spread on the street, the large rocks work themselves to the top, then a City truck and a loader return to the scene later and pick them up. Why the gravel? If there's no gravel then the street gets muddy, the cars get stuck and letters start coming into the City asking, "Why don't you get out here and gravel our White's advice Is to petition for a paved street then you won't have to contend with gravel, mud, boulders or trucks. Q. When does dove season end? What are the dates (opening and closing) for deer season? A. Dove season ends at sunset Oct. 30 (night before Deer season runs from Nov. 14 through Jan. 3 in Taylor and most of the surroundings counties. If you should get the urge to hunt quail also, you might like to know that quail season begins Nov. 14 and lasts until Feb. 15; this also is for Taylor and the surrounding counties. Other counties have dilfcrent dates and bag limits. Q. I have a problem (hat maybe other people share. I'm allergic to nylon and I desperately need to find a place where I can buy silk stockings. With winter approaching, I'll soon have frozen limbs unless you can help. A. You and the peach trees, huh? Sure don't want you hobbling around on stubs of legs so we found your silk stockings! Or at least we found a department store that will order them for you if you'll order a dozen pair, that is. It lakes about 10 days and the stockings cost around per pair. You'll be receiving the name c.' the store. Q. I saw "Up With People" each time they came to Abilene and am very Interested In joining the college cast of "Up Wllh People." Could yon please plie me an address I could use to get In touch with them? A. Write Up With People, Inc., P.O. Box 10, Los Angeles, 90051. It's a singing group consisting of high school and college students who study while they tour the giving concerts. Q. I'd like to know how or what you put In water to make it clear when you freeze It. P.S. I need the answer right away. A. We phoned you the answer 30 minutes after receiving the request, but you gave us the wrong number!

MOSCOW (AP) A small American plane carrying two U.S. generals has landed safely in Soviet Armenia north of the area of Turkey over which it vanished, Tass news agency said today. Tass said the four men aboard were in good health, and added: "The competent Soviet authori- ties have been instructed to investigate the circumstances connected with the above-men- tioned violation of the Soviet Union's stale frontier by the plane of the U.S. Air Force." The plane landed Wednesday near the town of tenlnakan in Armenia the agency reported. It had boon reported missing in bad weather. Aboard were Maj. Gen. Ed- ward C. D. Scnerrer, command- er of the joint U.S. Military mis. firm to Turkey, and Brig. Gen. Claude M. MrQuarric Jr., head of the mission's Army section. The Soviet Embassy in An- kara had said Russian planes joined in the air search, but Tass made no mention of this. Also aboard the plane was an army pilot, Major James P. Russell Jr. His parents live in Braxton, Miss. In Washington, Army officials said they understood Russell also was all right.

The total represents 61.7 per cent of the overall goal of for the support of the agencies, campaign chairman Sam Hill said. Volunteer workers -and chairmen assembled at noon in the Petroleum Club not only to report but to hear guest speaker Dr. John C. Stevens, president of Abilene Christian College, Rev. Nicholas M. Mayer Jr., assistant rector of the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest, led in the Invocation. During the luncheon additional contributing firms with outstanding giving were recognized. Among the firms distinguished were Taylor County Superintendent Office, Abilene Assn. for Mental Health. United Fund staff. West Texas Council of Girl Scouts of America, Frist National Bank, Cummins Supply, Millerman i Millerman. FeaUierlite Block Co., and Dick Lawrence Realtor Associates. These firms were reported as contributors during the week following the initial report meeting, Oct. 8. Also cited as contributors to the campaign during the past week were the Salvation Army, which ranked "fair share" and 100 per cent in giving; Mrs. Baird's Bakeries, "fair share" and 100 per cent; Abilene Savings Association, "fair share" and 100 per cent; Colonial Inn, "fair share" and 15 per cent increase in giving over last year; YMCA, "fair share" and 100 per cent; First State Bank, "fair 100 per cent and IS per cent Increase; and Southwestern Bell Telephone, "fair share." Those firms which give "fair share" are those in which 85 per cent of the employes pledge at least one hour's pay each month to the agencies. Mrs. Garth McLean was In charge of arrangements for the meeting. There was a drawing for door prizes donated by Abilene manufacturers. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 5. Bandag, Inc., Thursday, whereby the city will not annex the corporation's property for seven years. By not being annexed, Bandag will not have to pay city taxes. A CRITICISM of the agreement was made by Don Seamster, an Abilene attorney representing M. C. Rhodes. Seamster said that the agree- ment was "preferential treat- ment" and unfair to persons who own property suitable for industrial locations wilhin the city limits. Mayor J. C. Hunter Jr. said that the city was in tight competition for the industry and that without the offer of this agreement, Bandag probably would not have located here. City Manager H. P. Clifton said, "We are bettering ourselves and our taxpayers because they (Abilene taxpayers) will be employed there. "We will get a lot more in lax revenues off the people who work there than we would gel from the plant and property he said. SEAMSTEII TOLD the council that Rhodes owns property within the city limits and that the non-annexation agreement would seem lo decrease the value of his property for development purposes. "Why should industry seek a location within the city limits if the city is going to offer sites outside the Seamsler asked. Mayor Hunter answered that not all companies want to locale outside the city limits, while Clifton added that it is belter to have Bandag adjacent to the city than "somewhere between Wichita Falls and Iowa Park." Also appearing before the council on the matter was Elton Abies, manager of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce Industrial Department. He said that 21 communities had been in competition for Bandag.

Normally, the US is unarmed and carries no cameras or elec- tronic surveillance gear. The plane was piloted by Maj. James P. Hussoll, 42, a native of Mississippi, and a Turkish colonel also was aboard. It was on a 120-mile flight from Erz- urum lo Kars, which is 40 miles from the heavily fortified bor- der. The weather cleared during the night, and Turkish helicop- ters and spotter planes were out searching today. The Turkish radio asked villagers in the mountainous area to join in the hunt. Soviet officials were informed the plane might have come down on their side of the border, and a source at the Soviet Em- bassy said a search was being made in Soviet territory but so far without result. However, most officials in Ankara be- lieved the plane had crashed in the rugged mountains of eastern Turkey. Schcrrcr is Ihe highest rank- ing American officer in Turkey.
