The chipper and gracious actor refused to reveal where lie and Winnifred Gean Clem- ents Natz.ka planned to spend the first week of marriage. They were married in a surprise civil ceremony in Las Vegas, Nev., Sunday and returned here Sunday night for a reception at the home of his bride's sister, Mrs. Lawrence A. Dysart. It was the second marriage for Coburn and also the sec-i ond for his bride. Both were widowed.

Camp Evacuated A new brush fire, believed set by an arsonist, raged out of control today near Castaic on Hwy. 99 about 20 miles from the nearly week-old Los Angeles foothill blaze which has already claimed acres of valuable watershed. Authorities reported a man in a dark sedan was seen speeding away from the new fire, which spread at a tre- mendous rate and has con- sumed acres of brush since noon Sunday. Some 500 men were pulled off the still uncontrolled foot- hill fire to battle the blaze in watershed and grazing land about eight miles northwest of Castaic.

Eisenhower' acted shortly after his fact finding board reported failure in efforts to settle the 97-day strike. tf IN A STATEMENT, the President said: "America's hopes for voluntary, responsible settle- ment have not been fulfilled. "It is a sad day for the nation." Granting of a Taft-Hartley injunction would hall 'the steel shutdown while efforts to reach a settlement con- nued. However, there would be no legal obstacle in the way of resumption of the strike after 80 days if no agreement is reached. In a letter to Atty. Gen. William P. Rogers, Eisen- hower said as he did in first invoking the Taft-Hart- ley process on Oct. the strike would imperil na-l tional health and safety if permitted to continue.

Report Lunik Moon Photos Transmitted MOSCOW Lunik HI raced away from the earth again today after reportedly sending the earth the first )ictures ever taken of the ridden side of the moon. The Soviet news agency Tass said the photographs are >eing processed and will be published, giving mankind the "irst view of the far side of he moon never seen from the earth. Scientists expect the pic- ures to show the same sort of cratered face as the side of the moon which the earth sees.

Police snatched Paul Gra- ham, 22, away as angry resi- dents of the South Side neigh- borhood closed in on him. He was rushed to Central Police Station. No charge was filec immediately.

HOLLYWOOD (UPI) Fu- neral services for Errol Flynn today were as quiet and solemn as his life was stormy and controversial. Less than 500 persons at- tended the Episcopal rites at Forest Lawn's Church of the Recessional, including his last wife, actress Patrice Wyrriore. His second spouse, Nora Eddington, remained at home, ill. Absent also was 17-year- old Beverly Aadland, his most recent girl friend and "protegee." The blonde teenageer was at the home of her San Francisco attor- ney discussing her "inter- ests" in Flynn's estate. THE DARK, gloomy day brightened with sunshine atop the hill on which the church is located as Jack L. Warner, head of Warner Brothers Studio, read the eulogy. Dennis Morgan sang "Requiem" by Homer. In part, Warner said: "Errol had trials and tribu- lations in his life as most everyone has. But he never knew dullness. That is one thing Errol could never have endured. He thrived on excitement and attracted it wherever he was." The well-mannered, sol- emn-faced crowd was in di- rect contrast to the carni- val air that surrounded the funeral last year of another famed screen lover, Tyrone Power. Most of today's crowd were older people who stood quietly outside the church. PALLBEARERS carrying the copper casket were actors Jack Oakie and Mickey Rooney, Flynn's at- torney Justin Goldenbock, directors Raoul Walsh and Otto Reichow, and restaura- teur Mike Romanoff. Also, attending the serv- ices were Flynn's parents, Prof, and Mrs. Theodore Flynn, who arrived here over the weekend from London. His son, Sean, by first wife, Lili Damita, arrived with Miss Wymore, who wore a black suit, black hat and veil. The 50-year-old actor died last Wednesday night of a heart attack in Van- couver, B. C., on a com- bination business-pleasure trip to the Northwest lo sell his yacht, the Zaca. POLICE LINES and re- straining ropes were un- necessary as the crowd, with bowed heads, heard the services, read by the Rev. Kermit Castollanos. Away from the solemnity of the funeral, battle lines were forming over Flynn's estate which is believed to consist of a plantation in the British West Indies, a copra crop to be harvested there, and approximately realized from the sale of his yacht. According to friends, Flynn's will leaves his estate to his four children, Sean, 18; Deidre, 15; Rory, 13; and Amelia, 6. X MISS AADLAND left Hollywood Sunday and was believed a house guest at the San Francisco home of attorney Melvin Belli. Belli disclosed he had been re- tained by the teenager who was with the 50-year-old actor when he died in Brit- ish Columbia Wednesday. "I surely will protect her interests in his Bel- li said. He would not say that he expected litigation over division of Flynn's estate. Weather- Early morning low clouds but otherwise mostly clear through Tuesday. Little change in-temperature.

Brown today re- fused to grant clemency to Caryl Chessman. Chessman, who has been in death row for 11 years, is scheduled to be executed Fri- day. The governor made his de- cision Sunday night before leaving on a trip to Chicago. -t V BROWN'S statement said the convicted kidnap-robber has not sought executive clemency and, to the con- trary, "he has declared that he seeks only vindication. "This I cannot give him. The evidence of his guilt is overwhelming." Brown noled that, at the request of Chessman's attor- he conducted a personal learing Wednesday. He said: "The record shows deliberate career of rob- beries and kidnapings, fol- owed by sexual assaults and acts of perversion accom- plished at the point of a loaded gun. "ONE OF HIS victims, 17 years old at the time, is still, hopelessly confined in a state- mental hospital. Competent medical authorities are of the opinion that her condition is at least partially the result of the outrages perpetrated upon her." Chessman still has pending before the U.S. Supreme Court today a final appeal for a new examination of his trial record. He was convicted in I.os Angeles in 1948. Chessman's attorneys have argued that he was convicted only on a technical charge of kidnaping, and they em- phasized throughout that he did not kill anyone. Brown, in his statement, said the courts have inquired nto every aspect of Chess- man's trial and upheld his conviction by a jury as fair and legal. "NO CASE in modern his- ory has received more carc- 'ul scrutiny by both state and ederal he said. The governor repeated his iwn opposition to capital lunishment. Yet, he said, the .egislature has repeatedly re- used to abolish the death ienalty and "1 have sworn to Continued Page A-10, Col. 2) FLYING TO U. S.
