Quick action by a school bus driver today was credited with saving of the life of a Rushford youngster who dropped Into the deep water of the canal In South Rushford Monday after- noon. Little Ronald Hayes, four and a half years old, was rescued from the water by Alton Mor- kcn. who was assisted by several other persons. It was estimated that Ronald, son of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Hayes, was in the cold water from ten to 15 min- utes. How the youngster prevented himself from drowning was not entirely explainable today. Ob- servers said he kept bobbing under and out of the water while a. rescue was being ar- ranged. They said, loo, that Ronald kept his arms at his side, which may have kept him afloat. He was examined by a phy- sician, but there were no ap- parent 111 affects from the near- fatal plunge. Ronald was playing with Gary Woxland on the bank of the canal about o'clock Mon- day afternoon. First indication that Ronald hnd fallen in came when Mrs. Leonard Kopperud, who lives nearby on the bank of the cannl. saw Gary running up and down the bank. She investigated and saw Ronald in. the water. She im- mediately called the fire de- partment. Meanwhile, Miss Marion Carlson, also nearby, had no- ticed the boy In thu water. She hailed the bus on highway 1G, which runs near the scene. Mortal stopped his bus, grab- bed a wooden plank while run- ning toward the canal and thrust it into the water toward the boy. The rescuers managed to push the crying boy toward the shore with the plank, and immediately gave artificial res- piration. The boy appeared to be conscious throughout.

De Gasperi, Who has presided over a coalition of Christian Demo- crats, Communists and Socialists for months, was expected to inform the constituent assembly of his ac- tion in u speech tonight.

Burnquist also held that business license revocation proceedings un- der the new law must be based only on the observance by a police of- ficer of gambling devices in opera- tion on the licensed premises. He also held that unless the owner of a business establishment has actual knowledge of gambling operations on his premises he cannot be held responsible, under the law, for vio- lations occurring thereon. Flnball Exemption The opinion also pointed out that even though a licensed business establishment is closed down for one year for gambling violations the premises may be reopened Jn the interim for another type of enter- prise. The Burnquist opinion also. took the position that pinball machines which have no automatic payoff device for the return of money, coins, slugs, tokens or merchandise, or which provide for no such payoff by other means, arc not affected by the new statute. This also applies to pinball machines returning slugs for replay use only in the licensed machine, he said.
