Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 31, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBORS VOL LXIV Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY OCTOBER 31 1957 This Paper Consists of Four Ona No If Hunt MidEast Muddle Compromise Girord Case at Climax 5Year Term Is Demanded MAEBASHI Japan M The prosecution rested its case against GI William S Girard Thursday and asked a Japanese court to sentence him to prison for five years The 22yearold Illinois soldiers lawyers will make their final plea Nov 5 A verdict is expected by Nov 20 Girard is on trial for the fatal shooting of Mrs Anaka Sakai a Japanese scavenging for scrap brass on a military firing range last Jan 30 He is charged with inflicting bodily injury resulting in death the equivalent of man slaughter The maximum penalty is 15 years Much Speculation There has been considerable speculation that presiding Judge Yuzo Kawachi if he convicted the soldier would suspend sentence and allow him to return to the United States with the Japanese j girl he married last summer Suspension of sentences of up to three years are usual in Japan for first offenders or where the prosej cution case is weak Summing up Associate Prose cutor Kakiuchi Sugimoto con ceded that Girard did not intend to kill Mrs Sakai when he fired a blank shell from his grenade launcher while guarding equip ment on the firing range But Sugimolo asserted Girard Tiad at least the intention to hit a part ofher body half for a joke and therefore he should bear the responsibility of her death No Repentence Sugimoto also claimed the GI has never repented the killing an important factor in Oriental jus tice regardless of blame The prosecutor contended Girard has not taken enough measures to console the soul of the victim or to apologize or console the family and we cannot find any evi dence of his real repentance Girard has said many times he is sorry Mrs Sakai was killed but insists it was an accident arising out of his guard duty Sugimoto reviewed testimony that Girard threw out empty shells to lure the brass HERES LOOKING AT hu GlobeGazette photo by Gibbs owned by Mr and Mrs Robert McDon mans may be wary of black ough 923 N Federal strikes up a piercing cially on heres one

end the UN over the Middle East problem He said however that he be ieved it would be hard to find a plan which would satisfy the two rival groups One is pressing foi a factfinding commission to go o the SyrianTurkish border other proposes that UN Secre ary General Dag Hammarskjol be asked to work out a solution Zeineddine talked to reporter just before going into conferenc with Sir Leslie Munro of Zealand president of the 82na tion General Assembly The As sembly is in recess until Frida to permit compromise efforts The Syrian delegate acknow edged that several delegate were trying to find a way out of the situation but he declined to spell out just what suggestions they had made First Step He said Syria still felt that the first step in ending the Syrian Turkish crisis must be an inves tigation Syria would not neces sarily insist upon a vote on its own resolution he added but his government feels could not do an adequate job Asked whether Syria would permit Hammarskjold to visit he Syrian side of the border if ihe Assembly decided to send him Zeineddine said that would be determined when and if such a decision is taken He indicated Syria would not accept a suggestion by Indian Defense Minister V K Krishna Humans May Have Hit Limit on How Long They Can LiveDoctor Says CLEVELAND WiHuman be ings have about reached the limit on how long they can expect to live This conclusion was reported Thursday by Dr Morris Rock stein associate professor of physiology at New York Uni versity to the opening session of the 10th annual meeting of the Gerontological Society Ge rontology is the scientific study of old age To back up his conclusion he cited studies of animals and mortality date which shows t h a the color of their eyes hair and beings inherit most of the con ditions which decide how long theyll live Since man has no control over these inherited condi tions he said human beings are arbitrarily limited to about t h e present length of life With a considerable number of records of 100 years or over existing for the longevity of male and female humans he said this suggests itself as being close to the potential maximum for the majority of human beings of the future One proof he said of the limit lies in the fact that de spite the advances in medicine and public health the life ex pectancy of people whove reached 65 hasnt changed much over the years Another he said is the evidence from animal experiments which shows that the life span is al most always shorter for off spring which are borne or pro duced by older parents Rockstein said however that despite the fact that human life is limited by heredity many actual living conditions affect how long a person may live And he suggested by the proper control of these con ditions more and more people could expect to reach their in herited limit These conditions he said in clude climate diet and prob ably marriage In humans it is a fairly well known statistical fact that at any age the mortality of bachelors or spinsters far ex ceeds that of their married counterparts One possible explanation of this he said may be that mar riage environment is more favorable than living alone Physics Prizes

Br UNITED PRESS The governments count of flu cases since Asian flu struck the United States last summer climbed to more than 3500000 Thursday but there were signs that the flu death rate was de clining A United Press count showed 463 deaths blamed all or in part which the defendant said had he not done this Mrs Sakai would not have been killed Girards Japanese lawyer said the key point in his argument would be that the killing could not be called a crime because Girard was performing official guard duty no different from that of a policeman trying to catch ai burglar Flu Epidemic in

Federal Trade Commission said they will act against any drug manufacturer making false and misleading claims that their products can prevent or cure Asian flu The Food and Drug ad ministration said that except for flu vaccine there were no drugs available to prevent the disease The U S Public Health Service said there was no marked change last week in the outbreak of new cases It gave no figures
