{ THE BATAVIA DAILY NEWS 4^- Wednesday, February 24, 1965 L e R o y A s k s f o r M e e t i n g W i t h H i g h w a y O f f i c i a l s T o P l a n M u n s o n B r i d g e LE ROY—The Village Board will ask a “pre-planning” meet­ ing with Genesee County High­ way Dept, officials to discuss the proposed replacement of the Munson St. bridge. The board decided to request the meeting at its regular ses­ sion Tuesday night on receipt of word from the Genesee County Board of Supervisors of the al­ location of $87,000 for the re­ placement of the span across Oatka Creek- in the southwest section of the village. The pur­ pose of the meeting would be to allow board members to be­ come familiar with what the county has planned. While the County Highway Dept, is responsible for the re­ placement of all bridges in the county, the village would have to provide for the construction of the approaches to the span. Village officials said It is nec­ essary to know the type, size, length and height in order to form plans for the village’s part of the project. The current one-lane span also carries water, gas and sewer service lines and it was indicated officials of the Vil lage Water, Sewer and Public Works departments and a rep­ resentative of the Pavilion Nat­ ural Gas Co. would be invited to attend in order that provision could be made for the relocation of the service lines. The build-up of the approach­ es to eliminate steep grades would be a major factor in the cost to the village. Information ameeMng the amount of Dll needed would be necessary to devise cost estimates and deter­ mine methods of financing. The reconstruction is planned for this Summer,, according to in­ formation from the County Highway Dept. The planned reconstruction al­ so was considered as the board made plans for the repaving of streets this year. The board has announced it plans to repave 5,000 feet of village streets this year and it is a question wheth­ er Munson St. should be includ­ ed in the program. Trustee Ralph Milliman Jr. pointed out that the use by heavy equipment while the con­ struction was going on would cause heavy wear on the street. He said if repair was going to be needed after the completion, it would be advisable to include it in the proposed budget, rather Continued From Page 1 of . a village-wide telephone so­ licitation campaign. Mr. Brady, in asking the pub­ lic support, pointed out the re­ cent reduction of the assess­ ment of the vacant General Foods Corp., Jell-0 Div. plant and advised the construction of a new building would aid the tax roll and relieve the burden on the individual taxpayer. Another report meeting was scheduled for Monday at the Municipal Building. New Le Hoy donations include: $500, L. P. Brady Distribu­ tors. $250, W. Blaisdall Boyd, real­ tors. $150, Paul A.

Mill St., Union St., Warner Park, Maple Ave. and Lathrop Ave. are some of the streets under consideration for repav­ ing. The board will further dis­ cuss the program at its March 9 meeting. Rt. 19 Work Set Mayor Richard M. Ladd re­ ported he had talked with State Highway Dept, officials this week and they indicated plans call for the reconstruction of Rt. 19 in the viUage this year. He said it all hinged on the appropriation of funds by the Legislature. Owners Rewihdsd The Village Board reminded home owners in the Lake St.- Clay St. areas June 15 had been set as the deadline for the in­ stallation of connections with the village’s sanitary sewer system.

He said this morning: “I am definitely a candidate .’5 Only One Announced He is the only announced can­ didate, although there were in­ dications William F. Holihan of 22 Ross St. might seek the post. He was not available for com­ ment. Donald J. Weiss of 106 North Spruce Ext., a former chairman was mentioned prominently as a possible candidate, said this morning “I am not ^oing to be a candidate” and said he would not announce support for any­ one. “As a matter of fact. I ex­ pect to resign as an active par­ ty member,” Mr. Weiss said “Eight years is enough. Let a younger group take over.” There were reports from par­ ty sources that Mr. Weiss is in disfavor since an Ill-fated “vic­ tory party” following last No­ vember’s election left the Demo­ crats over $1,300 in debt. F. Harold Kerwin of Le Roy and John Scopano of Oakfield, who waged a bitter battle for the chairmanship two years ago, both said they are not candi­ dates for the chairmanship. Mr. Scopano .won a contested de­ cision and was upheld in the Courts, but he later resignec for health reasons and Mrs. GiU, the vice chairman, became chairman. Takes Self Out “No, my health won’t permit it,” Mr. Scopano said this morn­ ing when asked if he would run He said he would not commit himself to back anyone at this time, Asked if he would be a candi­ date, Mr. Kerwin said “No, after that messy deal two years ago, I wouldn’t want to go through that again.” He said he would support Mr. Green “who actually is a Le Roy boy al­ though he lives in Stafford.” Assemblyman Carmichael was not available for comment this morning, but reportedly told p&rsohs at the meeting that he is not a candidate for party chairman. The person named at the March 23 meeting would serve only until this Fall since new committee members will be elected at the. Primary. Parties must select new chairmen with­ in 20 days after the Primary. CHICAGO (AP) — Police, alarmed by telephoned threats on the life of Black Muslim leader Elijah Muhammad, stepped up security plans today for the sect’s convention in Chi­ cago this weekend. The calls to police came with­ in a few hours of each other Tuesday. The first warned: “We have arrived. Muhammad will have a lively convention.” The second caller, who identi­ fied himself as John Henderson, said 100 men were coming to Chicago from New York to kill Muhammad. The caller also told police a bomb had been slanted in the Coliseum, site of he convention which is expect­ ed to attract 6,000 Black Mus­ lims. W h ere Is He? ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The examination of a witness Tuesday in the trial of four men charged with slaying a moun­ tain housewife produced this exchange: “Who is your father?,” an attorney asked. The witness gave his father’s name. “And who is he?,” fired back the lawyer. “He’s my mother’s husband.” “Is he deceased?,’1 the attor­ ney asked. “No, sir,” answered the wit­ ness. “Well, where is he?” “He’s dead.” Police said the caller indi­ cated the bomb was timed to explode Friday or Saturday when Muhammad is scheduled ;o address the convention. Telephoned bomb threats also larassed New York police and reinforcements were ordered into Harlem in an attempt to prevent further violence. Early Tuesday an explosion and fire, believed to have been set by avengers of Malcolm X, wrecked a four-story Muslim Mmosque. Five firemen and one spectator were injured. Tension mounted later when the funeral parlor housing the body of Malcolm X, the former Black Muslim leader who was assassinated Sunday in New York, was the victim of a false bomb threat. The body went on display a few hours later. Police reported little progress in their investigation of Mal- colm’s slaying. Officials eeffl- plained there was a barrier of silence among Malcolm’s fol­ lowers, members of the organi­ zation for the Afro-American unity. Malcolm was suspended from the Black Muslims 14 months ago. Only one person, Talmadge Hayer, 22, has been arrested thus far in connection with the slaying. He has refused to say whether he has any affiliation with the Black Muslims. In Chicago, Sgt. Allan Mi­ chaels of the general assign­ ment unit said the police bomb and arson squad would make a complete search of the Coliseum today. “It’s not something to do at night,” he said. s “We have to check out every call. We can’t afford to take any chances.” As a further precaution, offi­ cials tripled the number of policemen, from 9 to 27, as­ signed to guard the convention. James C. Conlisk. deputy super­ intendent, said 50 other patrol­ men would be available “within seconds” in case of emergency. At Muhammad’s 19-room South Side home, a heavy cor­ don of police with shotguns maintained an around-the-clock vigil. Sgt. James Callahan of the task force, assigned to guard the residence, said 12 men were assigned to each shift. The watch will continue indefinitely, he said. Unmarked police cars cruised the immediate area, stopping all autos that appeared to be suspicious. ‘He (Muhammad) is pretty safe,” Callahan said. “We’ve got it covered pretty good.” Heavy guards also were placed at the sect’s Mosque No. 2 and the University of Islam,. both within a mile of Muham­ mad’s home. Black Muslim guards sta­ tioned themselves in ears parked in front of the Muham- madman sion. The posting of Black Muslim guards gave rise to speculation that Muhammad, who said Mon­ day he feared no reprisals in connection with the slaying of Malcolm X, may have had a change of heart. Shortly after Malcolm’s death, police confirmed a report that six of Malcolm’s followers had traveled to Chicago to avenge their former leader’s death. Capt. William Duffy, head of police intelligence, said the identities pf some of the six were known, but he refused to name them. Among Muhammad’s visitors Tuesday night was heavyweight boxing champion Cassius Clay, a Black Muslim. “Elijah isn’t concerned about the threats,” Clay said, “In fact, we didn’t even discuss it.” Clay is scheduled to give two four-round boxing exhibitions at the Black Muslim convention Saturday. “Elijah Muhammed will be there to watch me fight,” he said. “We are not afraid.” Clay had been one of Malcolm’s sup­ porters before Malcolm left the Black Muslim ranks, but he re­ mained loyal to Muhammed. The uneasiness that filtered throughout New York and Chi­ cago spread to San Francisco Tuesday where kerosene was thrown and ignited on the side­ walk and floor of a Black Mus­ lim meeting place. Damage was slight. TODAY’S MARKETS The following 11 a. m. prices on Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, New Yoi’k Stock Exchange are furnished through sthe courtesy of John P.

(AP) — Stan Laurel, the little, rub­ ber-faced partner of the late, 300-pound Oliver Hardy in the movies’ most successful comedy team, is dead of a heart attack at 74. Victim of a stroke in 1955 and of diabetes in later years, he suffered the fatal seizure Tues­ day in his bluff-top apartmet overlooking the ocean. His fourth wife, Ida, was at his side. Laurel and Hardy starred in 300 films, mostly two-and three- reelers, and made mil­ lions laugh. They were the 30’s slapstick kings and their films still are shown regularly on television and in theaters around the world. Fans remember Laurel as the crop-haired, bungling yet lovai ble scamp, who, wearing a blank, stupid expression, inevi­ tably brought disaster to his fat, exasperated partner. i Babe Hardy used to say Lau­ rel was the brains of their act* Stan wrote and directed m ai^ of their films. In a stock situation, the skin? ny Laurel and the rotund Hardf were at odds with authority — landlord, grim mother-in-law or chief of police. They always lost — except at the box office. - ? Laurel was bora Arthur Stan­ ley Jefferson June 16, 1890, in Uiverston, England, the son of a theatrical family. Spending much of his childhood in dress­ ing rooms and railroad stations., he toured with his parents in English stock companies. He later attended ’King James Grammar School, ' Gainford School and Tynemouth College. His stage debut at 7 was in “Lights of London;” At 15 he toured Europe on his own song and dance set. At 1? he joined Fred Arno’s London comedians, starring Charlie Chaplin. The company arrived-in New York in 1910 on a : cattle boat, toured the country ' for three years and disbanded. -Stan went into vaudeville, then 1 the flick­ ers. He started as a writer and director. Then one day? in 1927, he replaced an actor whe had taken sick and played a butler opposite a hefty comic villain named Hardy. They were an instantaneous click. Their heyday was in films for the late producer Hal Roach. They made many pictures for him before moving in 1040 to 20th Century-Fox. They kept no property rights to the old films, so reaped no rewards when they later were shown on television, Besides his widow, Laurel leaves a daughter Lois, of sub­ urban Tarzana. Her husband, A, H. Brooks, is a movie produc­ tion man. Laurel was married eight times to four women. He and his Russian-born last wife, the former Ida Kitaeva Raphael, were married May 6 , 1946, in Yuma, Ariz. H .E .T u r n e r fc Co., In®. Our Licensed Staff Harold J. Bishop J. Edward Canty Amos R.
