Ada Youths Face Charge In Death A charge of first degree man- slaughter was filed Monday after- noon against two Ada boys in- volved in a drowning incident on Lake Texoma last Friday. They were to be arraigned at p.m. today. The charges were filed by Bry- an County Attorney Wallace W. Gates against Frankie W. Lami- j and Taylor. Lamirand and Hill were releas- ed Saturday morning. Miss Taylor drowned Friday afternoon one-half mile northeast of the. Roosevelt bridge.

The agriculture official, S. R. Smith, administrator of the Agri- cultural Marketing Service, said the audit put Estes' net worth at million more than the amount required to keep the bond at the lower level. He said the audit was made by Wirin P. Jack- son, a certified public accountant associated with a Texas firm.

Investigators Won't Discuss Crash Theory CENTERVILLE, Iowa (AP) Federal investigators maintained silence today on reports of a link between a murder-suicide pact and a Continental Airlines jet plane crash that claimed 45 lives. No official would discuss this facet of the case for the record, but there were indications that they were not dismissing this the- ory. A briefcase bearing the initials T.G.D., found among the -debris after the plane disintegrated in the air, was in custody of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. George Van Epps, head of the Civil Aeronautics Board crew in- vestigating the crash, said an ex- plisive might have been carried aboard the plane in the brown leather case. The CAB said an explosion oc- curred in a lavatory of the plane shortly after it passed through a line of thunderstorms last Tues- day night. John S. Leak, of the CAB en- gineering division, said the blast was a high velocity explosion in a concentrated confined space, rather than a gaseous explosion. He said since no copper wire or blast.

The value and workings of trust funds set up by the President's Estes. now under indictment for fraud, has declared he is bank- rupt. One aim of the investigations into Estes' many and complex operations is to learn whether Estes' jerry-built business empire was constructed on a foundation of government influence. The 37-year-old Texan's 'deal- ings are being investigated by the FBI, four grand juries, the In- ternal Revenue. Service, the Ag- riculture Department and two congressional committees.

After 40' boxes and absentees were counted, W. P. "Bill" Atkinson had a net gam of 6 votes at noon Tuesday. Across the state, Atkinson's victory was whitled 29 votes to 583 as eight more counties completed their re- counts and a recount was denied in Cherokee County. Gary, vowed to go to the last mile.

As the recheck moved forward Tuesday, Atkinson again increased his lead, building at one point to a net gain of 20 votes. Then .he lost a vote in the Col- bert box, four votes in the Country Club box, gained one at the Fair- grounds; lost two at Homer and gained one at West Latta. When the recount in West Latta was completed, Atkinson had a net gain of 15 votes. Then, a 10 vote error was dis- covered at Lula. The official run- off figures gave Gary 53 and At- kinson 27. The recount showed Gary only 17 votes actually cast for Atkinson, who dropped 10 votes to show a net gain of five. -In the recount of Maxwell.bal- lots, Gary lost one vote resulting in a six vote net -gain for the candidate from Midwest City.

Salinger said before the inau- guration that Kennedy had con- verted his assets, other than cash, into federal, state and local bonds. It was understood at the time he. had ordered the 45th birthday share of the trust fund to be in- vested in government bonds. Kennedy plans to leave the White House this evening for the birthday party at Glen Ora, his Hunt country estate where Mrs. Kennedy and the two children, Caroline, and John Jr., will greet him along with other members of the family. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, the President's brother, and wife, Ethel, will be there as will two sisters, Eunice and Jean. Eunice is the. wife of Sargent Shriver, head of the Peace Corps, who will also be there. Jean is Mrs. Stephen Smith. The President plans to remain do so. The investigation was not pressed and it still was pending in the Dallas office of the Internal Audit Division when Estes was arrested March 29, he said. On April 4 one day before Estes was indicted it was learned that' Jackson had de- stroyed his working papers, said Smith.

'Cecil Leonard, director at Rose- dale, said today he will be on duty in, the chapel to assist visi- tors .during the day. An attendant also will be on duty at Memorial Park to be of assistance. Officials at Memorial Park said they will leave artificial wreaths in place in the cemetery 'until June. 11. .Artificial flowers will remain in place longer at the city- operated cemetery, but bouquets of fresh flowers will be removed after three or four days. Leonard said that if vases are left with .cut flowers, they will be placed in the ceme- tery office. A request was made by ceme- tery managers that metal braces or hangers not be used in -fasten- ing decorations. It was explained that these pieces of metal can get caught, in lawn mowers and possibly injure employes.. Graves of war veterans will be decorated with flags in commem- oration of the day.

The ten vote error for Lula was a classic example. Fattened from big boosts in Le- Flore, Payne, Ottawa and Caddo counties, Atkinson had a 620 vote margin at one point Monday night. He had a net gain of 34 votes in LeFlore, 22'in Payne, 26 in Otta- wa and 17 in Caddo. Gary make his biggest jump when he picked up 36 votes in Grady County. There were no changes in the figures from Atoka County, but seven of the ballots were .contest- ed and. will have to be decided on by the state Election. Board. Atkinson, making his second run at the Democratic nomination for governor, had net gains of 18 votes in both Lincoln and Jackson counties. Gary picked up 10 votes in Woodward County. Both camps expressed hope at the result of the recount Monday. H. W. .Coach McNeil, Atkinson's campaign manager, said he was pleased with the recount thus far. Keith Smith, an -attorney for Gary, said their-hopes hadn't been diminished because of the re- counts yet to come from metro- politan areas. Atkinson carried only '21 of the state's 77 counties, but all of the big .ones .were in his camp. A statewide contest has never been reversed by a recount in Oklahoma history.
