Selma Police

Capture Owens

ROGERS, Ark. (AP)— Rog-
ers police were notified today
that Donald Eugene Owens, 28,
who at one time was believed
to have drowned in Beaver
Reservoir, is being held on an
open charge at Craig Air Ferce
Base near Selma, Ala.

Authorities were informed
that Owens was arrested last
night in a residential area.

Rescue units searched the lake
for a week after Owens was re-
ported missing on a fishing trip
Aug. 20. The search was called
off after a week when au-
thorities were notified by fed-
eral officials that Owens was
not believed to have drowned.

He was listed as being ab-
sent without leave frem the
Selma air base.

$9,000 Suit Filed

A Fayetteville woman has
filed a $9,000 damage suit in
Washington Circuit Court against
a Kansas man and another city

$9,000 from H. D. Miller and
Sandra Gutharey, who the suit
claims was an employe of Mil-
ler. The suit also claims Miller
owned the car the Gutharey
woman was operating.

The mishap occurred at the
intersection of Dickson Street
and Hwy, 71. Mrs. McConnell

State Funeral Set

CAPE TOWN, South Africa
(AP) — The body of assassinat-

Verwoerd was flown today to
Pretoria for a state funeral as
two of South Africa’s leading
papers called for tighter securi-
ty procedures in Parliament,

“Tt is easy to be wise after an
event, but it looks as if security
arrangements in Parliament
are surprisingly lax,” said Jo-
hannesburg’s Rand Daily Mail
in an editorial.

Referring to Verwoerd’s as-
sassin, the Cape Times asked:
“How was it that a foreigner

pointed as a messenger in the

The measure as finally ap-

proved was a compromise
worked out by a conference
committee that reconciled doz-
ens of differences between the
Senate and House versions of
the program.
_ Originally, the President had
asked for $3,367,000,000 for the
aid program—both military and
economic. The House had au-
thorized $4,109,119,000. But the
Senate, in an obviously rebel-
lious mood, chopped the request
to $2,852,762,000.

in Warsaw, after one of his in-

U.S. ambassador, accused the
Kremlin of “singing a duet”

the idea was te surround Pe-

from Soviet insinuations that
the Chinese, after all, were not
