Some accounts W that this trageW.JCiiJ 
could be. seen from the fort- 2nany'^ ? • B 
disagree.. Tliis story seems to bear 
out the fact that it could not be seen 
£rom the fort, because it is logical to 
believe that the' ( man "telling the 
story would have mentioned that 
episode also, if he could have seen 
it at the time he also watched the 
Battle of Fort , Caspar. 
_ Two brothers came , to Wyoming 
m 1885 from Iowa, Martin, Smith and 
his: brother Charles .Smith, who is

Martin Smith, -93 years- old, and an 
early settler in .this section before 
there w ; as any thought of a city of 
.: , Casper, came iii to the Tribune-Her- 
: aid office Friday, to tell- a. story 
about Fort Caspar. The. celebration v 
;: .of Caspar Collins- Day .at old Fort 
Caspar. on Saturday reminded him 
of- the story of. the battle- of Fort 

, -Caspar as told to him by an eye 

: witness, -in* about 1903. 

^Mr. Smith,, in the livery stable 
business in Glenrock in 'the early 
1900's, was hired by a salesman to 
drive him through the country' to 
call on his customers, there being no ' 
tram service to most towns. Casper 
was the terminus of 'the' C. and N.W 
in those days. It was' while on this 
^ ip ^ h ? be met the eyewitness to 
the Battle of Fort Caspar who tola 
him the story as he remembered it. 
' The man who- told 'him the tale 
was a French Canadian, living on 
Twin Creeks, about 12 "nailes 'South- 
east of Lander; he. is not now able 
to recall his name, but remembers 
it as something like De ; Muir. 

This man was. by trade a bridge 
builder, .and, :had built bridges at 

2fJ? ?i 5f a6es along the P1 ^tte r at 
Fcfrt Fettoman and- several other 
locations.^ \Vas in.the. process of 
buildm| ^Wdge at Platte Crossing 
(later 'Fort ^spar) at the time of 
the battle with. the large horde of 
Ara i pahOi,C^^Bnne.and Sioux In- 
dians^; -;.'.-; ■■•: , -v. . : --- • -.' • 

\^^ quoting 

the French-Canadian, ■ 

" H ^ffiP^^ : ^iani5; came 

ffn ^^KS^R^fc'Carrows 
ito .th^xftrfc.. The commanding of- 



the' -. ,, T 
young Ol4 
made the^ 
r. He-'!' 


-^^« soldiers 

saetan„.and the 

^spai 5 : .Collins 


enroute to visit. his uncle, the com- 
manding officer at Fort Steele. 

"The > commanding: officer advised 
.against his going with the .party 
saying that it was-hard to tell what 
might happen. Lt. Collins, insisted 
however, saying. that he had never 
men an Indian scrap, and would like 
the experience. So the commanding 
officer allowed him to lead the 
sortie against the Indians who were 
riding toward'the fort and shooting 
arrows. . . - -. 

^The man who told Mr. Smith this < 
story, said that he stood onv top of i 
one. of the cabins of, the. fort and ! 
watched the battle, which lasted only 
a little. while; the' soldiers were so 
much outnumbered that soon thev 
were all killed. He said that when 
uhe soldiers reached the band of In- 
dians who had ridden toward the 
fort, who turned and; rode un a little' 
rise in ground, hundreds orindians.: 
swept down on . -them from both 
sides, and killed them all. 

Asked : if the man had made any 
particular reference to the death of 
Col ms, Mr. Smith did not remember 
that he had told anything about- 
that just thai) "they ^vere all [killed » 
The eyewitness told Smith that 
the commanding officer sent -out a 
detail after the. Indians had left -to 
bring in -the bodies and that one 
was f 2 e d so f u]1 of arrows th ™ t ™*.

laby f Six" Pounds, Before 


L ! 

LIMA, Peru, May 15. (2P)— An 
Indian girl said by physicians to 
be five years old has given birth 
to a six-pound baby at the Lima 
maternity hospital— to the amaze- 
ment of 60 physician witnesses. 

The baby, a boy, was delivered 
in a 35-minute caesarean, opera- 
tion Sunday. The infant was said 
to be well-formed and today both 
the child and his mother were re- 
ported to be in excellent condi- 

,The caesarean was performed 
by Dr. Gerardo Lozada and Dr. 
Alegandro Busalleu and among 
the 60 spectators was a commis- 
sion of physicians preparing a 


report on the amazing case of 
precocious motherhood. . 

The child mother, Lina Medina, 
was born Sept. 23, 1934, accord- 
. ing to her parents, and that is 
the date of her birth certificate. , 

But Dr. Hipolito Larrabure, 
.chief surgeon andj director of the 
Lima ; maternity hospital, said the 
birth certificate apparently was 
in error because. Lina still has her 
milk teeth and the molars are 
just emerging — the dental status 
of a child more than five but un- 
der six. 

Dr. Larrabure believed this 
calculation was more reliable 
than the birth certificate which 
would make hdr. four years, sev« 


en months and three weeks old. 

After the birth Dr. Larrabure 
recounted the history of the case. 

The girl is one of the children 
of an Indian farming family, liv- 
ing near Pisco, a cotton port 
south of Lima. 

A few weeks ago her mother 
brought her into the hospital at 
Pisco for examination, believing 
the child had an abdominal tu- 
mor, Dr. Lazada found her to be 

"Lozada had the surprise of his 
life when he found Lina was in 
an advanced state of pregnancy," 
Dr. Larrabure said. 

He said it had been impossible 
to determine who had assaulted 

the little girl. 

The mother reported that Lina 
started to menstruate when she 
was only three months old, con- 
tinuing regularly until August, 

Told that the child was preg-. 
nant, the mother voiced Indian 

Gynecologists feared that na- 
tural delivery of the baby would 
be dangerous, if not impossible, 
for the little girl and so decided 
to operate after eight and one- 
half months of pregnancy. 

The mother is just under 3? ' 
inches in height. She weighs 70 
pounds. The baby weighed almost 
] six pounds. j

Fatal Accident Is Investi- 
gated; Deposition" Tak- 

' en at Hospital by Cor- 

i oner Fred 'Porter. • 

. J. Riley Hays of Montpelier stood 
accused Wednesday of criminal neg- 
ligence by a coroner's jury in the 
deaths of four persons as the result 
of a collision between their sedan 
and his stalled truck Saturday night. 
The verdict of the jury is as fol- ,j, 

lows: ;; 

"That Mrs. Harvey Mulberry, John ij 
Mulberry, Mrs. Door thy Park and S 
Roger Lynn Park came to their 
1 deaths at approximately 7:40 p. m. t 
! March 26th, 1938 on U. S. highway 
j 91, about four miles south of Idaho 
Falls, Idaho, as a result of a colli- 
sion between -the automobile driven 
' by Harvey Mulberry and a B^ord V-8 
.truck (belonging to J. Riley Hays, 
parked at said place of accident on 
highway 91. We find the accident 
was caused by the following reasons;. 
I First, that the highway is not of 
1 sufficient width /to permit a vehicle 
J to park off the traffic lane; second, 
that said parked truck had no rear 
lights; third, that Mr. Mulberry was 
blinded by the undimmed lights from 
■ car driven by J. Riley Hays, which 
I he met at point of accident. We, 
; therefore, find J. Riley liays guilty 
! of criminal negligence and as a re- 
i suit of his negligence occasioned the 
i death of Mrs. Harvey Mulberry, John 
i Mulberry, Mrs. Dorothy Park and 
i Roger Lynn Park." 
\ Prosecuting Attorney Henry S. 
I Martin said charges, probably man- 
slaughter, would toe filed against

day gift for Madame Queen. After 
much" consideration he decided on a 
pair of gloves. He accompanied Mrs, 
Xingfish to a ladies 7 furnishing store 
to make his purchase. He bought the 
(doves, Mrs. Kingfish purchased 
bloomers for herself. Somehow the 
oacka^es were mixed at the store, 
th package . to Madam Queen con- 
tained the bloomers and the follow- 
ing letter: 

"Dear 'Honey: This little token is 
to remind you that I am keeping: 
date with your birthday. I chose 
them because I think you. need some 
as you are not in the habit of wear- 
inc any when you go out of .evenings. 
If°it had not been for Brother King- 
fish's 'ole battleax/ I would have 
purchased the ones with the buttons 
on, but she said! they are wearing 
short ones now. Honey, they are of 
a delicate color but she lady that 
sold them to me showed me a pair 
she had been wearing for three 
months, and they were hardily soiled 

Iat all. 
"How I wish, I could put them on 
you th first time, I mean , but no 

doubt, many other men's nands^.will 
come in contact with them^ 
get a chance to even see them. ^An> 
wav, 1 hope you will think of me 
™ time you pat; them on. I ** 
7ot have the exact size but thought 
1 could) 'judge the size better than 
anyone else. After you put them^on 
once they will slip on easy, when you 
pull thm off blow in them before 
* ou , put them away as |hey will Je 
a little damp from wearing. Be su*e 
to keep them on while cleaning for- 
if you don't they will shrink. \ 

"I hope you will a<**pt them m 

the same spirit they are given-. Be 

sure to wear them to V* .dance at 

Aunt Lillian's Friday mgjit a* I am 

just crazy.„to see them on ^l^. 

love you honey, Andrew H. Bro*n. 

P. s. Think of the number of times 

I W ill kissi the back of them tto- 

coming year. Oh yes, Mrs. Kmgfish 

and Ruby Taylor said the latest is ; to 

wear them unbuttoned and hanging 

down as that gives the wearer a 

careless look. . :> ; .

Hollywood Finds 
La Rita Corey 
f New Personality 1 

This is a Cinderella story which 
Hollywood itself, the setting of the 
tale, could not improve upon. 

The Cinderella is a twenty year 
old Idaho Falls girl — brown hair- 
ed, brown eyed La 'Rita Corey, 
whose fetching smile has beguiled 
Hollywood's television titans. 

The story goes back three years 
ago when the winsome and curve- 
some Miss Corey left Idaho Falls 
lor Hollywood' for a job. She was 
shopping casually at a Los An- 
geles department store one day 
when a display director of the 
large store was attracted immed- 
iately to the Idaho Falls girl. He 
asked her out of one of Californ- 
ia's lazy, blue skies if she would 
like to model women's ready to 
wear. Miss Corey accepted and 
worked several months as a mod- 
el before accepting a job with the 
California Bank at Hollywood. 
Seeks Bank S&b ' 

Tiring of the daily model rou- 
tine, La Rita, who was fond of her 
secretarial classes at the Idaho 
Falls high school, applied at the 
California Bank in Hollywood for 
a job. They laughed at her, saying 
they were not accustomed to hir- 
ing young, inexperienced girls. The 
persistent and spunky local girl 
smiled right back, insisting "on 
just on@ chance." 

The bank gave her her chance — 
and were glad they did. Miss Corey 
started as a filing clerk but was 
soon climbing the banking ladder 
to the loan department where she 
is now one of the youngest top 
ranking employes in the bank. 
Television Beckons;.; ; 

It was while she was plying her 
secretarial talents at the bank that 
Hollywood's glittering television 
portals were opened to her. Hal 
Roach, jr., executive of Hal Roach 
motion picture and television stud- 
ios of ..Hollywood, is credited with 
"the^iind." Miss Corey helped 
.; Handle. the Roach studio account. 
'"!i3^*£$^nt morning, Mr. Roach 
{^Ikidf into the bank, suddenly 
pj ^efchei might be missing a betj 

and asked Miss Corey to take a 
screen test. 

She passed the test with flying 
colors and is now being groomed 
by the studio for her first televis- 
ion appearance — a role in the 
forthcoming half hour television 
film produced by Roach Studio, 
"Don't Be A Sucker." Producer 
Roach now pronounces Miss Corey 
"a good bet." 
New Faces 

Miss Corey's arrangement with 
Roach, incidentally, allows her . tb x 
keep her position with the bank:^-; 
in between studio calls. <^A> V'/ V 

The daughter of Harry ^gey,; 
and Louise Corey of Idaho Fi&s;l 
the new television starlet is a 
graduate of the Idaho Falls high 
school. She is the granddaughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Reed, also of 
Idaho Falls. A baby sister, Peggy 
Joy, a student as the ^daho Falls 
junior high school, rounds out the 

Laboratory Technician 

After graduating from the local 
high school, Miss Corey took a po- 
sition with a local dentist, Dr. G. 
M. Smith, as laboratory technic- 
ian. After a year in the dental of- 
fice she left for California. Dur- 
ing high school days, she served 
as an usher at the Paramount 
theatre here — and also found ttee. 
to dance at local parties and be? ; 
come a star member of the high 
school tumbling team. She learned 
her tap dancing under the tutelage 
of Don Wilson, local druggist and 
former dancing instructor. f 

While in California, the athletic j 
Miss Corey still finds time to ride' 
horseback regularly and to bowl on 
the bank's girls team. As star of t 
the bowling team, she boasts an 
average of 210 scattered pins. ; 

And what does mama think of I 
all this: j 

"It's really wonderful. Sometimes j, 
I'm not sure it's true. We plan to 
visit her this spring, says Mrs. 
Corey, who is employed at a local 
women's shop. 

The Corey's — from Peggy Joy 
to Grandparents Reed — breath^ 
lessly await the next letter .from 
their Hollywood starlet to receive,^ 
the next sequence of th& ; thrill 
packed \tale; of .. .'.'Idaho Falls Girji 
Makei/^pod^ij^.T^eyJIll.^t ;< *' '" ^ 

FROM A bank secretary v tb a 
television starlet — that's the 
success story of Miss La Rita 
Corey, 20 year old Idaho Falls 
girl now in Hollywood. Miss 
Corey is pictured above at her 
desk in the California bank 
where she was "discovered" by 
Hal Roach, jr., television execu- 
tive. In the bottom picture Jack

jtion known as hypo-plasia — 
-makM-g it impossible for him to 
eat or breathe normnlly. 

Within! a few' liburs after Mi-

keep him alive.

bator. And suction equipment 
was used to keep the breathing 
tube from plugging and suffo- 
cating the infant. At first, nur-

When the baby started to 
gain, the pediatrician — -who' 
prefers not to be named ■—* de-

BOISE m - An Idaho Falls 
woman filed suit in Ada County 
District Court Tuesday for $100,- 
000 exemplary damages on 
grounds she signed a loan agree- 
ment which had been misrepre- 
sented by an officer of the Bank 
of Eastern Idaho. ^ 

Kathleen Sweeney, widow of 
David M. Sweeney, said m her 
complaint that as president or 
the David M. Sweeney Co. she 
sought a short term $20,000 loan 
from the bank. 

Her attorney, W." S. Holden of 
Idaho Falls, had informed the 
bank's agent, E. A. Clawson, that 
the corporation would cause the 
$20,000 loan to be guaranteed, .by 
the plaintiff . or would deposit, 
security . 

Wanted insurance 
The complaint alleged, among 
other things, "that the defendants 
know the plaintiff neither had or 
would v have, separate property, 
other than a claim for some in- 
surance." i ! 

The complaint also said the 
Continental State Bank, Boise, 
had filed $50,000 claim against 
Sweeney's estate and the Bank of 
Eastern Idaho, Idaho Falls, had 
filed a claim for $10,000. 

Both banks were named as de- 
fendants in the complaint, which 
said Clawson negotiated the loan 
with Mrs. Sweeney while Holden 
was out of, town. 

The attorney said in the com- 
plaint that he had left explicit in- 
structions during his absence that 
Mrs.- Sweeney was to sign the 
short term loan for $20,000— which 
was later repaid in 17 days—not 
other loan agreements which 
would have her personally guar- 
antee antecedent loans of the es- 
tate amounting to about $60,000. 
Tells of Transaction 
The complaint added that while 
the attorney, Holden, was attend- 
ing the American Bar Associa- 
tion, that "Clawson became soli-;, 
citous about Aug. 21 and asked 
Mrs. Sweeney to sign the notes 
for the one loan; that the official 
said by using two notes it would 
save the corporation interest; and 
then handed to the plaintiff a 
printed form of a loan guarantee 
agreement, and stated and rep- 
resented that the same was her 
guarantee for her loan; that in 
reliance of such representation, 
she signed the agreement; that 
Clawson when he made the rep 

banks therein named Had filtd 

claims in the estate/' v j" 

The complaint said the Conti- 
nental State Bank had filed claim 
of $50,000 against Sweeney's Es- 
tate, and the bank of Eastern 
Idaho had filed a claim for $10,- 
000. The complaint said there was 
no dispute against these claims 
as they were for "antecedent 
debts and obligation" against the 
Sweeney estate, not against Mrs. 
Sweeney personally." 

Condemn Action 
The complaint added that the 
"action and conduct of the de- 
fendants by and through repre- 1 
sentatives, was malicious, wan- 
ton and outrageous and was in- 
tended to oppress the plaintiff 
with full knowledge of her dis- 
tress in her bereavement." 

The complaint said "fraud" 
was used in obtaining the guaran- 
tee and asked that in addition to 
the exemplary damages . the 
-agreement be set aside, ' ,, 

BOARDING A SPECIALLY-EQUIPPED Pullman car for a trip to St. Louis, Mo., are Mrs. John

There were no diapers, 'for 
baby Michael Schmid. And his 
suction machine broke down. 

But the Nampa inafnt was 
happily oblivious to the two big 
problems as he rode in a spec- 
ially-equipped railroad car to- 
ward St. Louis, Mo., for a deli- 
cate operation. 

Michael, two-months-old son 
of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Schmid, 
Lakeshore Drive, will undergo 
surgery at Children's Hospital, 
St. Louis, for a deformity that 
prevents him from breathing and 
eating normally. 

The St. Louis hospital is one of 
the few with experience in hand- 
ling such cases, a Nampa pedia- 
trician explained. 

But back to Michael's two big 

A good supply of diapers was 
sent with Michael from. Mercy 
Hospital to the Union Pacific 
depot .early Wednesday after- 
noon., But' they, were in a com- 
jpartmeni'.'in. the base of a port- 
able incubator loaded on the 
train for Michael. 
? " .'.It -was discovered the base was 

not needed in the Pullman car 
bedroom. So it wasn't put aboard 
the train—and neither were the 

But Union Pacific personnel 
came to the rescue. They provid- 
ed dining car napkins lined with 

soft facial tissues. And at last 
reports, everyone — especially 
Michael — was happy. 

The second problem arose when 
the suction machine, borrowed 
from Mercy Hospital for the trip, 
broke down. A Union Pacific 
electrician, sent along on the 
trip to take care of such mat- 
ters, kept the machine . operating. 

And at Pocatello, another ma- 
chine was borrowed from the 
Union Pacific physician there. 

UP officials said the broken 
down machine will be, repaired 
so there will be two on the train 
for Michael. 

Railroad officials arranged a 
surprise for Michael's mother 
and his special nurse, Mary 
Barraysarra, Wednesday night.

The Golden Wedding celebration of Ferne f s parents, the Thompsons f at 
Christmas time was the lovely conclusion to 1958 and the memory will live 
in our hearts always. Beauty was everywhere! Our gratitude for the bless- 
ings of family, home, and wonderful friends knew no bounds . 

We began the New Year with a task tremendous— that of having a member 
of the Staff call on each member and constituent of the church. Appointments 
were made prior to the calls so that no one would be missed® Nine hundred 
and fifty-six calls were made in addition to our "regular 11 calling* It proved 
to be a most rewarding experience . 

Japan holds such a fascination for us that we are thrilled to have David 
Patch on the College Junior Year Abroad Scholarship from our church studying 
at International Christian University in Tokyo. The wealth and variety of 
experience that he is privileged to have; the associations with government, 
educational and religious leaders and students; the international aspects 
of the university; living in such an interesting and contrasting culture- 
all combine to make the experience of inestimable value to him and f we feel, 
to us also, as he returns next year to share with us all, Kent and Elsie Buma, 
dear friends of ours f have opened their hearts and home to David, which greatly 
increases his opportunity for understanding and interpreting his surroundings. 
Kent is head of Church World Service for Japan* David, of course, lives on 
the campus . 

With "Africa" the Mission Study for this year, we feel most fortunate 
to have our own John Kaemmer serving in Angola and to. have a small part in 
his work. , t «% ") : 

An exceedingly active and successful new organisation within the church 
is our Sixty-Plus Fellowship. Dr. S. Raynor Smit.h r ^ur Associate Minister, 
is the leader for this age group in the OregonV : po|x|#rence and we are greatly 
indebted to him for his guidance and direction -of our local Fellowship. 

Brooks f s father has made quite a fine recovery^from his near-fatal ill- 
ness of a year ago. He spent three months with us-' in Salem this summer, but 
felt that he wanted to be at home in Miami for /tHe; -winter. He gained 10 lbs @ 
while here, however, and we feel that he gained %n \other ways more difficult 
to measure. He continues' to find adjusting yto/llf^; without Mother Moore very 
difficult indeed, - •. -; 

Many peonle, who are greatly missed, have-moved from Salem during the 
past year. Among those who are away for a year'oj*' longer, but whose return 
Is eagerly anticipated are: Lucille and Charles: -,%raie f the Tom Goldens and 
Lee, Phyllis and Richard Gillis, and the Willis; &ates family. Our prayers 
and love are extended especially to Pin Seng Tschang as he pursues his studies 
■on the East coast. The loss of Daisy, his beautiful young wife, en route 
Eastp in a tragic car accident was a blow to our church and community. There 
has been an unusually large number who have left the Church Visible to join 
the Ghurch Triumphant, leaving for us a "lonely- place against the sky 11 . 

Some wonderful additions to our Ghurch Staff have been made this year. 
We 1 11 mention only two. Dr. Edgar Smith, Head of the Music Department of 
Oregon College of Education at Monmouth, is our outstanding director of the 
Sanctuary and Wesley Choirs. One thousand crowded into the church to hear 
ff The Messiah 11 presentation by these choirs on December 13. The congregation 
seemed spellbound. May Hanning Dudley, an Oberlin Conservatory graduate 
having had a fine background of experience, is our director for Cherub, 
Junior, and Youth Ghoirs and is presenting them in Christmas Vespers on 
December 20* 

Please remember that we always cherish messages and visits from our 
friends. May God f s choice blessings ever be yours,

How aid I know when my youth is spent? 

When my git-up and go has gone and went. 
But in spite of it all I am able to grin. 

When I think where my git-up and I have often teen. 
Old Age is Golden, I have heard it said, 

But sometime I wonder as I get into "bed. 

With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup, 

My eyes on a table until I wake up. 
•Ere sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself, 

Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf? 
And I'm happy to say as I close my door, 

My friends are the same, perhaps even more. 
When I was young my slippers were red. 

I could kick rap my heels right over my head. 
As I grew older my slippers were blue, 

But still I could dance the whole night through. 
Bow I am old my slippers are Mack, 

I walk to the store and pufi my way hack. 
The reason I know my youth is spent, 
My git-up and go has feone and went. 
. But 1 really don't mind when I think with a grin, 
Of all the grand places my git-up has been. 
Since I have retired from life's competition, 

I busy myself with complete repetition. 
1 get up each morning, dust off my wits, 

Pick up the paper and read the obits. 
If my name is missing, 1 know I'm not dead, 
So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed.

The favorite pet of the LeRoy Reed and David Reed families, "Blaze" 
became lame, so Dr. E. E. Eatinger was called to see what he could do for 
the children's pony. Watching the little horse about to get a shot are Byron 
Reed, the son of the LeRoy Reeds and Chris Reed, son of the David Reeds, 
Allen, son of the LeRoy Reeds, helps the doctor by holding the horse still 
as possible. Dr. Eatinger who is a member of the American Association of 
Equine Practitioners, is about to give the pony an injection into the digital 
artery with prednisolene, a new modern medicine that helps in the cure and 
treatment of lameness.
