THE C.OURIKR.JOIWNAL, LOUISVILLE, KY. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 29, 1965 Says It's Not M cN a mar a Personally Resigned Admiral Cites Central Power '. A 4 i - I By JACK RAYMOND C New York Timt News Service WASHINGTON One of two Navy admirals who quit Wednesday, in protest acainst the centralization of power at the Pentagon, was called before the chief of naval operations and the deputy defense secretary yesterday to explain himself. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara had discussed the resipnations earlier with the Navy chief, Adm. David L. McDonald, and deputy Defense Secretary Cyrus It. ance. But McNamara did not take part in the confrontation with Rear Adm. Charles A. CurUc, deputy chief of the Bureau of Ships. The chief of the Bureau of Ships, Rear Adm. William A. Brockett, whose resignation accompanied that of Adm. Curtze, is on a mission overseas. Yesterday afternoon Vance and Adm. McDonald summarized for newsmen the explanation that Adm. Curtze had given them requesting retirement ahead of schedule. Adm. McDonald said he understood that Adm. Brockett's views were the same as his deputy's. Vance said that he and Adm. McDonald had been assured by Curtze that the protest was not directed against McNamara personally. Vance, reading from notes he said he had taken at the morning meeting, then outlined the reasons given by Adm. Curtze for his action: v An accumulation of developments in the Defense Department and the Navy "over a long period of time" to which the two admirals took exception. One of these developments was an "increased trend toward centralization," for example the establishment in 1963 of an Office of Naval Material over four Navy bureaus. K" The possibility of a new reorganization of "the material structure" that would affect the Bureau of Ships, along with the Hureaus of Naval Weapons, of Yards and Docks and of Supplies and Accounts. (Vance emphasized to newsmen that no decision had yet been taken regarding the proposed reorganization.) Plans to procure two newly authorized cargo ships, known as FDL's (for fast deployment, logistics) by going to private contractors for "conception formulation and design" rather than entrusting them, as in the past, to the Bureau of Ships. Adm. Curtze said that turning to private contractors was the practice in the Air Force in its procurement but that insofar as the Navy was concerned, he knew of only one private shipbuilder that could possibly handle the task. The Bureau of Ships could and should do the work, Adm. Curtze said. In view of the foregoing, Vance related, Adm. Curtze had said it was time for him to "step down and change the watch." Adm. Curtze, 54, and his chief, Adm. Brockett, 51, are both engineers and longtime friends. They submitted their requests for retirement to the office of Navy Secretary Paul H. Nitze Wednesday. Both have more than 30 years of service. The chief of naval operations was asked whether he, personally, believed that there had been too much centraliza tion at the Pentagon. "In many ways, yes," he replied, then added: In some ways, no." "Let's leave me out of it," Adm. McDonald continued. "The Navy never wanted unification.

Workmen atop the 630-foot-high Gateway Arch at St. Louis bring the keystone section into place yesterday to complete the nation's tallest monument. Gateway Arch Finished, Memorial To Pioneers ST. LOUIS (AP) The Gateway Arch, memorializing the pioneers and pointing the way to the future of America's heartland, was finished yesterday with the insertion of the keystone in a drama 630 feet above the Mississippi River bank. "This is the greatest memorial since the Eiffel Tower," said 77-year-old Barney Dickmann, the former St. Louis mayor who started the idea in 1933. "I'm glad the darned thing's finished." Work Begun Early The arch, born in the Depression, symbolizes the pioneer spirit of the men and women who won the West and those of a latter day who strive on other frontiers. About 10,000 people gathered in brilliant sunshine and a swift breeze by the Mississippi and on the rooftops of St. Louis to watch the "topping out" 2 Hurt As Truck, Station Wagon Collide On Douglass Two persons were injured at 12:05 p.m. yesterday when a truck and a station wagon collided at Douglass Boulevard and Saratoga Drive, police reported. Theodore McAtee, 41, of 1722 Fleenor, driver of the truck was treated at General Hospital for cuts of the head, neck and left hand after his vehicle struck the station wagon, overturned and pinned him inside. The hospital listed his condition as satisfactory. Mrs. John L. Hcndrickson, 33, of 1843 Douglass Blvd., driver of the station wagon, was treated at Kentucky Baptist Hospital for bruises on her arms and legs and released. Police Sgt. Jon Higgins said Mrs. Hendrickson was turning left onto Saratoga when the truck struck her vehicle on the right side. No citations were issued. Big UL Program Planned For Navy Day Tomorrow Navy Day will be celebrated at the University of Louisville from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow with an open house sponsored by the colleges Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps L'nit. The program will include displays of equipment, movies of Navy operations and a presentation of the NROTC program and curriculum. It is designed for high school graduates and parents. of the nation's tallest monument. It is 75 feet higher then the Washingon Monument. A giant crane hoisted the keystone while an Air Force band played the national anthem and the Stars and Stripes fluttered from the rising section. The job of inserting the keystone was perilous. Workmen hoisted the 10-ton, eight-foot triangular section a half-hour early because the sun's rays were causing the stainless steel skin on the arch to expand. This would tighten the 8Mi-foot opening at the top. Fire hoses were hauled up the legs of the arch and workmen pumped water down the outside in an attempt to cool the steel. The keystone fitted with less than six inches to spare. Mrs. Eero, Saarinen, widow of the noted American architect who designed the arch 17 years ago, accepted a replica of the arch and said, "My husband wanted to build a monument of our time out of materials of our time." Saarinen died in 1961. The stainless steel arch is the largest structure of its kind in the world. St. Louis Mayor A. J. Cervantes said 6 million people a year would come here to see it. The arch is part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, a $29 million, 40-block area on the fiver front once blighted by slums. When finished next year the memorial will include an underground museum of westward expansion documenting the winning of the West. Cable cars will carry visitors up inside the arch. Gateway Arch Architect's Widow Kohhed Of Jewels ST. LOUIS (AP) Jewels and other items valued at $1,185 were stolen Wednesday night from the motel room of Mrs. Aline Saarinen of New York, widow of Eero Saarinen, the architect of the Gateway Arch here. Mrs. Saarinen told police the jewels included two pearl necklaces, two gold pins, two pieces of luggage and a stopwatch. She was in St. Louis yesterday for the installation of the keystone section of the arch. By ROBKRT I.. RIOGS Chltf, Courier-Journal 4 Times Bureau WASHINGTON The extent to which some of Barry Goldwater's most devoted followers are turning toward Richard M. Nixon for 1968 is demonstrated by a secret conference of conservative leaders held near Chicago in August. At the session were some of the same men who, at similar meetings in 1961, 1962 and 1963, launched the Goldwater draft movement which resulted in the nomination of the former Arizona senator at San Francisco. F. Clifton White, who was the chief architect of the Goldwater draft, was prominent in the recent session attended by 15 others. While White has insisted that the August session was not comparable to those which spurred the Gold-water draft, The Chicago Daily News reported that there was some discussion of uniting behind Nixon for the 1968 nomination. Was Regional Director One of the veterans from the 1964 campaign who attended the session was James Mack, now working for Illinois Tool Corp. He was one of White's regional directors in the 1964 campaign. Another was Charles R. Barr, an executive of Standard Oil Company of Indiana in Chicago. He has been active in a campaign to educate businessmen in political activity, a program called the Effective Citizens Organization. Another was William A. Rusher of New York, publisher of the conservative magazine, National Review. This dicussion of Nixon by men who were emotionally involved in the Gold-water movement four years ago comes at a time when a conservative organization, the Liberty Lobby, has sounded a call to find a party nominee who has more capacity for creative leadership that was displayed by Goldwater. Won't Call Goldwater? In a brochure analyzing the 1964 defeat and looking to the future, the Liberty Lobby made it clear that conservatives will not again call Goldwater to carry their banner. "It is highly unlikely that the circumstances which led to the success of the draft-Goldwater movement will ever occur again," Liberty said. "It is easy to imagine that in 1968, there may be two, or even three potential conservative candidates for the Republican nomination." Liberty Lobby attributes Goldwater's 1964 nomination to the efforts of many groups. It lists them as "anti-Communist groups, new-party groups, educational Chiropractors' District Elects Dr. Allen Cardwell Jr., 4009 W. Market, was elected president of the Third District of the Kentucky Association of Chiropractors. Other officers were Dr. Ray S. McPike, president-elect; Dr. Beverly Moser, vice president; Dr. D. L. McLeod, treasurer; and Dr. J. C. Riggs, secretary. ROOF VINYL LATEX SURPLUS PAINT HOUSE PAINT WHITE HI 111 Exterior DAIkIT Rod I Green While Only I Mill I $188 $Q99 $177 I Gol. Reg. 4.45 Gal. I Gal.

While this "political revolution" was brought about in Goldwater's name, Liberty Lobby said, it was Goldwater's failure to exercise "creative leadership" which caused its ultimate defeat. "There was no possibility of victory because subconsciously there was no will to win," Liberty Lobby said. While the lobby said there may be at least three conservative contenders for 1968, Ms description of the man needed appeared to fit Nixon. In contrast to the Goldwater "floundering crusade," the lobby pointed to the "creative leadership" exercised by Democrats, notably Franklin D. Roosevelt. It pointed out that Democratic leaders "can unite the most unlikely of opposites," adding thait the Republicans have not yet learned how. That, it added, is the reason "for the past and present supremacy of the Democratic Party." Valley Station Youth Badly Hurt As Car Shears Phone Pole Ronald K. Pinnington, 16, of 9901 Gandy Road in Valley Station, was in critical condition last night in General Hospital with injuries suffered when his car left the road shortly after 3 p.m., knocked over two mailboxes, sheared off a telephone pole, hit a tree and came to rest after traveling about 120 feet, county police said.
