Then warplanes swooped on the rebels with strafing runs and incendiary bombs.

S. NEW YORK Gloria Vanderbilt won complete custody today of her two children. The cqurt decision also gave "generous visitation rights" to her former hus- band, symphony conductor Leopold Stokowski. State Supreme Court Justice Edgar J. Nathan Jr. gave the ruling after conducting hearings behind closed doors. The heiress-actress and Stokowski had shared custody since their 1935 divorce. She had sought to reduce the time he spent with the children from three months to two weeks. He asked that his time with them be increased to six months.and that he have the right to travel abroad with them. Nathan said his decision was based on the children's interest rather than on any specific act or conduct by either the mother'or father. Nathan said no conduct on the part of eilhcr parent was found to be such as would warrant depriving cither of visitation rights or limited custody. f iSotheby's to help pay inheri- wound Curphey said.' nce faxK_ "From these findings, cou-j The jous hi h g pled wilh the sok! a[ hlic auc. report supplied this office was pounds paid for French impressionist Paul Cezanne's "Boy in a Red Waistcoat" in a sale at Sotheby's last October.
