Of Killing 80 Girls
SAN FRANCISCO DEL RINCON, Mexico (AP) — Two sisters were found guilty Friday of slaying at least 80 girls in the operation of a white slave ring in central Mexico.
The sisters, Delfina Gonzalez Valenzuela, 56, and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez Valenzuela, 39, were given the maximum sentence, 40 years in prison.
Several hundred persons gath
ered in front of the court house in this small, isolated town as Judge Timeteo Lozano pronounced his verdict. The trial began last January and brought forth details of starvation, beatings and death.
Nineteen other persons were convicted of being members of the ring and given sentences ranging from I to 35 yars.
The prosecution contended the
ring had been operating for at least IO years and the girls who were slain had tried to resist discipline.
The Gonzalez Valenzuela sisters admitted operating houses of prostitution but denied guilt for the deaths.
At least 21 bodies had been discovered by the time the trial began.
China Blast Confirmed
ELECTION SURVEY. Members of the Dover High American Problems seminar class, taught by Clifford Blair, turned political pollsters yesterday and today as they questioned the man-on-the-street (and women) on their political views. Cindy Wendling (left) and Karen Mcllvaine are shown quizzing Rev. Clayton Stouffer of Mineral City. Some of the questions asked are: Do you plan to vote? For whom will you vote for President? Would you vote for additional taxes to improve salaries and conditions of the Dover police? For whom will you vote for U. S. Senator? Do you favor the administration's position on Civil Rights? There also are some rather embarrassing questions to some, such as who is the governor, secretary of defense, how many senators from Ohio and number of amendments to the Constitution.

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Sen. Barry Coldwater, barnstorming across Ohio, asked a cheering crowd today “do you want one man’s thumb on your country, or do you want yours?”
In his first stop on a second swing through the state he has labeled a key to victory Nov. 3 the Repub I i c a n presidential nominee launched into an attack on President Johnson for grabbing too much power.
He called the Democratic philosophy of government the “one-man, one-thumb idea.”
Two weeks ago Gold water made a whistle-stop tour across Ohio. His other stops today were at Akron, Canton and Youngstown.
As the Arizona senator reached the center of town he was greeted by almost as many LBJ signs as Coldwater signs.
But the reception from the crowd, estimated by police at 4,000, was noisy and friendly.
