One of the most popular eat ing-places in town is a new cafeteria that just opened here. I had lunch there the other day and was amazed how many people were served in fee short time I was there. II reminded me of another Wnd al service most of us use today — party-line telephone service. I was talking with Cy Stubbs, who works for the telephone company, and he told me if it weren’t for party lines, thousands of folks would still be waiting for tele phone service. He said that party lines mean more service for more people sooner. That’s one reason why it’s so impor tant that folks continue to use their party lines “sharingly.” The Chesapeake k Potomac Telephone Company. Mad Farmer Shoots Up Two Taverns, Wounds 10, Then Kills Self' By the Associated Press j WATERFORD, Mich., Oct. 25.— A crazed farmer shot up two taverns last night, then killed himself after wounding 10 persons. On a mad spree with a shotgun, Joe Runyon, 57, terroriaed this sleepy little resort village. Two of his victims, both women, were critically wounded. Tramping back and forth across a street, Runyon fired seven or eight charges from a 12-gauge shotgun through windows of the two taverns, witnesses said. At the end of a violent 10 or 12 minutes, he walked a short dis tance up the street and fired a final charge through his own chest. This was the last in a series of rapid reloadings. Runyon's gun was a single-shot weapon. Reported in critical condition today at Pontiac General Hospital were Mrs. Irene Zurawski, 37, and her mother-in-law, Mrs. Helen Psciuk, 50. Six Wounded in One Bar. It was at the Zurawski family's small bar where Runyon made one attack. Six persons were wounded there and another four at the bar of the Waterford Hotel across the street before Runyon shuffled away to kill himself. Runyon, a former auto factory worker in nearby Pontiac, lived alone on a farm he was said to have bought a year ago. Little was known of him. but evidently things had gone wron<; recently and he had become de spondent. At his tidy farmhouse was found a note saying: “Take over, Joe. Dad's quit work.” Listed His Possessions. There was also a detailed list of Runyon's possessions. George Taylor, assistant Oak land County prosecutor, said the note apparently was meant for Runyon's son, Joe, jr„ & Pontiac resident. Runyon, a stocky man of me dium height, was known as a quiet person. He had his daily beer in town and peddled his farm crops here. He began his rampage shortly before 8:30 p.m.. Accounts of wit nesses varied, but it was estab lished that he walked from one bar to the other, standing at the j windows to fire blasts inside. Patrons screamed in fright. &ome dropped 10 me noor. Mrs. Zurawski was shot in the neck and face. Her mother-in law was wounded in the face and chest. The latter’s son, Stanley Zurawski, 29, was shot in the left arm. The Rev. Father Frederick A. Delany, pastor of Our Lady of Lakes Parish in Waterford, was driving past the hotel. He saw Runyon holding a gun at a win dow. ’ ' , “I heard a shot,” he said. “I think I said, ‘Stop, you crazy fool.’ He turned around an<| started cursing me. Then people started running in all directions out of the hotel.” As alarm swept the town, am bulances sped the 10 miles to Pontiac with the injured. Earlier Runyon had spoken to some of his victims, including Mr. Zurawski. “He told me he had plenty of trouble,” Mr. Zurawski said. "He also told me, ‘If a man feels like he's going to die in his old age, he might just as well take a few people with him.’” Mrs. Etta Ficher, 60, grey-haired day bartender at the hotel, said that shortly before the shootings Runyon had complained that “three of my horses died and I lost $250.” Seated at a table, Mrs. Ficher escaped injury. At the first shot she thought “» lamp exploded.” The hotel night bartender, Kenneth Friesner, 39, was wound ed in the face and neck. He knew Runyon and regarded the farmer as “a nice fellow and the kind of person you liked.” Last night, however, Runyon on Fall and Winter travel to EUROPE by American Flagship FROM WASHINGTON LONDON only .... $492.20 save . . . 163.25 FRANKFURT only_$557:30 scv3 . . . 189.95 SHANNON only .... $448.20 save . . . 147.85 STOCKHOLM only_$590.20 save . . . 227.25 • Currency devaluotion abroad plus American's special reduced round-trip fares cut European travel costs to the lowest level in years.

After we talked a while, he cried,” Mr. Friesner said. It was soon afterward that Run yon left the bar and returned, with a shotgun blazing. Also wounded at the Zurawski bar were Howard Stites, 26, Or tonville, shot in t ie face and neck; Dale Palm, 28, Ferndale, shot in the face and eyes, and Harold Meston, 28, wounded in right arm and chest.
