Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS I 82ND YEAR, NO. 80 ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER PAGES IN ONE AuockUd PAGE ONE One East Texan taking leave from another East Texan: "See you later, Deviator." Mrs. J. E. (Myrtle) Storey, R. N., 1510 Oldham Lane, says she has a hobby that is univer- sal and notes that she honed it to such a fine point she can tell others some secrets. Her hobby: She worries. "For years I worried about any and Mrs. Sto- rey reports. "Now I find it hard sometimes to find something to worry about. In that case, I can worry that I don't have any- thing to worry about." A champion worrier, Mrs. Sto- rey says, worries day and night and never fails to tell everyone about some small or enormous problem about which they wor- ry.' The champion advances to the state of the long, drawn face. The checks wrinkle and the hair turns gray. Years drop off the expected life span. "I made a fair start toward the Mrs. Storey says. "All the characteristics of a per- fect worrier were beginning to show on me with the exception of gray hair. I am still worry- ing because it should have turn- ed and didn't." "Worrying is quite a compli- cated procedure and enough to worry anyone if he wants to do a good job of she says. "When all else fails, we can still fall back on the best worry topic of all, our health. "We can worry about every ache and pain of the body and the more we worry the worse it There is no end of wor- rying over illness, if all other worries have been worried out. I have spent many a sleepless night worrying about the pain I was having and worrying that I would never live to another night. This can be carried on to worrying about how worried the family would be after I have worried myself to death. "It is hard to go to sleep without worrying. So, if there is nothing else to worry about, you can always worry about not go- ing to sleep. This is usually good for a couple hours of entertain- ment." Certain people have built-in worry topics, Mrs. Storey points out. "Take the smoker. "His is an unending supply of worries. He can worry that he smokes too much. All the arti- cles on smoking are enough to worry a person crazy. Some say cigarets will kill and some say there is no proof. Therefore, I can always worry about the number of cigarets I smoke. And it worries me to think that after I have smoked myself to death I won't know how the ar- gument over smoking came out." Then there are the worries over drinking and "drinking too much is a sure way to help the rest of the family really have something to worry about." These arc sure fire worry sub- you can worry with- out them. "Let others have their wor- ries, I have Mrs. Storey says. "At present I am worried be- cause 1 am afraid 1 will never live long enough to worry about all the wonderful things there are to worry about." But really, Mrs. Storey ad- mits, she doesn't have a worry.

Ben Bella's regular army de- ployed an estimated well- rained soldiers on its sweep to- ward the capital. They were sup- ported by Soviet-made artillery weapons, mortars and heavy ma- chine guns which they were or- dered to use as little as possible in order to avoid casualties. In many places, the defending guerrillas, equipped mainly with rifles and light machine guns, fled or surrendered after putting up token resistance. Despite guerrilla efforts to slow the advance with improvised road- blocks or by blowing up bridges, the invaders advanced deep into the territory of Wilaya (Zone) Monday on two fronts. In the south, they were reported in the area of Medea, some 55 miles south of the capital.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The 1962 Labor Day weekend set an all-time record Monday for deaths on the nation's highways. Traffic deaths, including sev- eral accidents which claimed hree or more lives, hit 465 as :he three-day weekend entered its 'inal hours. The previous record was 461, established in 1951. In addition to the traffic toll, 21 persons died in boating acci- dents, 52 by drowning and 90 in miscellaneous mishaps for a total of 628. The grim record of highway carnage fulfilled a National Safe- ty Council prediction made ear- lier Monday when the death pace quickened. "This Labor Day holiday will set a new record high in traffic said Howard Pyle, president of the NSC. "The toll could reach 500 unless motorists adjust to the greater dangers of driving resulting the increased traffic during the final hours of the holiday." Before the start of the 78-hour holiday at 6 p.m., local time, Fri day, the council had estimated that between 410 and 490 persons could be killed in highway mis haps during the weekend. Forty persons died in eight sep- arate accidents during the holi day weekend. Of the total, sis WEATHER Change in Venus Mission Delayed PASADENA, Calif.

In Algiers, Wilaya 4 leaders concentrated their forces in the suburbs and vowed to put up an embittered fight for control of the capital. It was difficult to determine whether Algiers would be turned into a civil war battlefield. Military men said Wilaya 4 had no chance of beating back the in- vaders, but could pin them down in street battles for days. Units of the Kabylie Mountains Wilaya 3, allied with the rebels, replaced Wilaya 4 sentries around the Algiers Casbah, a center of the pro-Ben Bella underground. Shortly afterward, the Casbah became a virtually autonomous area surrounded by the rest of the city controlled by Wilaya 4.
