Los Angeles Examiner Fri., July 12, 1957 5 Sec. 1 CD Takes Part in Alert Today Mock Attack Due Here at 11:20 a.m. City, county and state Civil Defense staffs will man posts at 9 a.m. today to participate in the nationwide "Operation Alert" assuming hydrogen and atomic attacks on America's major cities. There will be no participation by the public, as a silent "yellow alert" is called at that hour, to be followed by an imaginary "Red (take cover) alert" at 11 a.m. At the moment of the mock attack, 1120 a.m., the CD officials will open sealed envelopes giving them the details of where the bombs supposedly hit in Southern California, and their magnitude. TASK AHEAD- From that point on, their staffs will work through to midnight coping - on paper - with the results of such an attack. It will be assumed that mass evacuation has removed all but 25 per cent of the population, under the national evacuation policy which was disavowed Wednesday by the Los Angeles Cities and County Planning Board as impractical. ---------- $25,000 Sought SANTA BARBARA, July 11-County supervisors will apply for $25,000 in Federal funds under the Federal Library Act to buy books and strengthen the rural library services of Santa Barbara county. ---------- Who's Winning Missile Race?

Walter P. Aley, 19, found that out - the hard way - yesterday. At gunpoint, he forced Sam Baron to give him $61 from the cash register at Baron's liquor store, Eagle Rock boulevard and Avenue 45. But he didn't get far with the money. The whole neighborhood landed on him before he was a block away. First, Baron shouted for help. Great grandmother Tillie Kessel, 68, heard him Though she is nearly blind, she dropped her mending and rushed after Aley shouting, "Stop, theief" Aley began to run. Next door, Earl Stiner, 60, heard the commotion and saw Mrs. Kessel in close pursuit of the fleeting youth. He joined the chase. JOINED CHASE- Down the block, Leslie A. Bates, 45, saw the three runners. He didn't know what it was all about, but decided it must be worthwhile. He started after Aley, too. Then the neighborhood mailman, M.L. Strick, rounded the corner in front of Aley, who tried to dodge, lost his footing, and was promptly tackled by Stiner. All three men sat on Aley while Mrs. Kessel called the police. When Officer Richard Doyle arrived to take him into custody, Aley was willing to go quietly. He said he'd had enough. Asked why he hadn't used his gun on the pursuers, he only shrugged. "It's just as well you didn't," said Doyle, grinning at his four impromptu helpers, "they would probably have made you swallow it." Aley nodded his head gloomily. "They might at that," he said. "Doggondest neighborhood I ever saw!" [[image caption]] "STOP, THIEF!" SHOUTED TILLIE KESSEL Great-grandmother pointed the way for neighbors. [[image caption]] -Los Angeles Examiner photo. Walter P.

Visitors to the USO-Jewish Welfare Board Club, 5870 West Olympic, will be taken to a swimming pool party at a private home.

But Bjorndahl wasn't in it. He had been arrested on suspicion of drunkeness after neighbors complained he was making too much noise - three hours before the fire started. ---------- Cohen Guilty, to Appeal Attorney Charges Police Oppression Gambler Mickey Cohen's plaint that police "roust" him was rejected yesterday by a Municipal Court jury, which held Mickey guilty of delaying traffic through three green lights last May 25. Judge Harold C. Shepherd, who presided at the two-days trial, promptly fined Mickey $11 with the alternative of two days in jail, but Attorney Charles Hollopeter obtained a 24-hour stay of execution and Mickey said: "I'm certainly going to appeal." Police charged that Mickey loitered through the lights on Santa Monica boulevard at Western avenue. Attorney Hollopeter told the jury: "With Mickey Cohen it is not a matter of a $2 or a $4 fine. It is a matter of his being rousted and oppressed by the Police Department." --- New Recruit Chief SAN DIEGO, July 11. (AP)– Col. R. W. Boyd, 43, today becomes chief of staff of the Recruit Training Command at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot. ---------- Pair Found Shot to Death VICTORVILLE, July 11-Harold D. Jensen, 38, wealthy Eureka business man, and a young San Gabriel woman he married in Las Vegas Tuesday were found shot to death in Jensen's car three miles south of here today. Investigators identified the slain bride as the former Barbara Jean Burton, 25, and said Jensen apparently ended her life and his own with a .22 rifle found at his side. Officers said the car was parked a few feet off Highway 66, and that Mrs. Jensen, shot in the temple, lay half out of the auto. Jensen, also shot in the head, lay at her side. Investigators reported finding a two-page document, evidently a financial agreement entered by the couple, in the car, and that it mentioned sums of more than $1,000,000. ---------- [[ad]] 7 FAMILY RESTAURANTS Hoody's Hoody's Hoody's ---------- [[ad]] Innes SEMI-ANNUAL SHOE SALE MEN'S, WOMEN'S, CHILDREN'S TOP QUALITY SHOES WOMEN'S SHOES [[3 columned Table]] | Famous Brands | Reg. to | NOW | | MADEMOISELLE | 22.95 | 10.95 to 14.90 | LA GIRONA | 16.95 | 8.90 to 12.90 | VALENTINE | 14.98 | 7.90 to 10.90 | FOOT SAVER | 22.95 | 14.90 to 18.90 | FREDELLE | 15.95 | 7.90 to 10.90 | SORRENTO | 12.98 | 4.90 to 7.90 | NATURAL BRIDGE | 13.98 | 9.90 | HILL & DALE (at 7th St. Downtown only) | 18.95 | 14.90 | Group of Fine Dress Shoes | 22.95 | 9.90 to 14.90 | MEN'S AND BOYS' SHOES [[3 columned Table]] | Famous Brands | Reg. to | NOW | | WHITEHOUSE & HARDY | 13.90 | 16.90 to 24.90 | JARMAN | 19.95 | 9.90 to 14.90 | W.
