"We appreciate it very much and think it's really nice. We don't see how they could do much better," said Dennis Grissom, as he discussed the memorial to be dedicated today in honor of his son, Lt. Col. Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom. The astronaut's parents, who live in Mitchell, will be joined on the dedication platform by visiting astronauts and other dignitaries. Grissom's widow, Betty, who resides in Seabrook, Tex., with the couple's two sons, is not expected to be present. Scott Grissom, 21, broke his ankle recently in a motorcycle accident, but plans to return to Purdue, his father's alma mater, for his junior year this fall. Mark Grissom, 17, will, be a senior in high school. Betty and the two boys visited briefly in Mitchell with the Grissoms and her father, Claude Moore, and Mrs. Moore, when Recent court rulings leave only 5 on state's Death Row - -j.' ' Aiucllttd Prill MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. Recent decisions of the Indiana Supreme Court have left only five men on Death Row at the Indiana State Prison, the smallest number in the memory of anyone at the Michigan City institution. No execution dates are set, pending a U.S. Supreme Court decision on the nationwide death penalty controversy. The state high court Monday ordered a new trial for Luciano Monserrate, 27, East Chicago, convicted in 1967 of the Monday collision fatal to woman Associated Prist A woman whose car was struck in succession by two pickup trucks died Monday night on U.S. 40 in western Marion County. ' She was identified as Mary A. Horn, 43, who lived in an Indianapolis trailer court near the accident scene. Four other persons were injured. Larry Kidd, 23, Medora, was killed Monday in a two-car crash on old U.S. 50 near Medora. Two persons died Monday of injuries , suffered in earlier traffic accidents. "''.Cindy A.

Electric Co. questions authority V,S. environment agency Associated Prtst WASHINGTON The Indiana & Michigan Electric Co. yesterday filed suit here seeking to nullify a federal enforcement conference's requirements for cooling towers on an atomic-power plant under construction. Z The suit directly challenged the authority of the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to prescribe industrial discharge standards or anti-pollution methods. f The company charged that EPA Administrator William D. Ruckelshaus recommended an "arbitrary and capricious" requirement for closed-cycle cooling towers on power plants along Lake Michigan to prevent pollution by the discharge of heated water. Closed-cycle towers use the same water over and over, without discharging heated water except during' occasional flushing operations. " Says $156 million invested 1 The company charged that "an agent" of Ruckelshaus threatened the Michigan Water Resources Commission with a cutoff of federal anti-pollution grants unless ' CP' 'liiipisipil i ' - , ST -'"ni.iiiir,,,,,' - memorial center is dedicated. Young will be the principal speaker at the dedication in memory of astronaut Grissom, killed in an Apollo spacecraft fire. Young was Grissom's co-pilot on the United States' first two-man Gemini orbital flight. they were in Indiana last May to attend the Indianapolis 500-mile race. Thousands are expected to converge on Spring Mill State Park for the 11 a.m. dedication ceremony. Holiday for state employes Gov. Edgar D. Whitcomb has proclaimed the day a holiday for state employes, and the mayors of Mitchell and Bedford did likewise. A speakers' platform is being erected on the east side of the building.- Astronaut John Young, who was Grissom's co-pilot on the first Gemini flight of three orbits of the earth on March 23, 1965, will be present for the ceremony. He has been designated as commander of the Apollo 16 moon shot scheduled for next March. Other dignitaries expected to attend are U.S. Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird and other national officials, tele- slaying of Sharon Potts, 19, a hospital clerk. The court gave two reasons for the decision: 1. ) The admission of a statement by an alleged accomplice, supported only by a convicted robber who volunteered to testify. 2. ) Using opposition to capital punishment as a specific cause for excluding a juror. The same court kept another prisoner in Death Row by rejecting the plea of Charles W. Adams, 26, Huntington, that the death penalty is "cruel and unusual punishment." He was sentenced in the Lover's Lane slaying of Burl Lyles, Huntington, in 1968. Death Row regained a previous resident this week when Michael T. Callahan, 47, was returned from mental treatment in Beatty Memorial Hospital at Westville. He was sentenced to death in the 1961 slaying of Edward G. Byrne, a Marion County deputy sheriff. Another man under death sentence, Paul T. Kennedy, 29, of Gary, is undergoing mental treatment at Beatty. Ha was convicted of the 1967 slaying of Edward Blakely, a Porter County sheriff. Still in Death Row, besides Callahan and Adams, are George P. Brown, 39, Hobart; Emmett 0. Hashfield, 64, Boon-ville, and Jay L. Dull, 34, Muncie. Brown has been under death sentence for more than 13 years, since the 1956 slaying of Mildred Grigonis, a Gary beautician. Hashfield was sentenced in' the I960 slaying of an 11-year-old Boonville girl, Avril Terry. Dull was convicted in the 1961 robbery-killing of a Muncie cab driver, James L. Tricker. The prison's electric chair has not been used since Richard Kiefer of Fort Wayne was executed June 15, 1961. the state adopted the closed-cycle cooling requirement The suit asked the court to declare this requirement "illegal, arbitrary and capricious"; to declare the parallel recommendations of the Lake Michigan Enforcement Conference "null, void and of no legal effect"; and to issue an injunction barring Ruckelshaus from trying to persuade Michigan to adopt his approach. The company said it has already invested $156 million in construction of its planned Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, consisting of two 1,100-megawatt generators. The plant's total cost is to reach some $480 million, the firm said. It said the installation of closed-cycle cooling towers would cost an additional $56 million and add $6 million per year to operating costs. But the suit made it clear that it was challenging not only this specific requirement, but the basic authority of the EPA to regulate industrial effluents. "The validity of the administrator's announced requirements turns primarily on legal issues concerning the administrator's statutory authority," the suit said. "Because it is an effluent standard," 1 v!? 4 vision personality Joe Garagiola, and comedian Red Skelton, a native Hoosier. No admission will be charged at the park today. The dedication program will be held just outside the new memorial center and will be open to the public. The center has been closed to the public while workmen prepare the space exhibits, but it will be officially opened with the dedication. Thereafter it will be open daily as a major attraction of Spring Mill Park. The Mitchell High School Band will provide music for the dedication. Parking to be limited Since parking will be limited near the center, buses will be used to shuttle visitors from the park's large parking lots to the center. Mitchell motorists are asked to leave their cars at Lehigh Field and ride the bus to the park. Senior citizens and others without transportation may meet the bus at the Mitchell-Marion Township Public Library between- 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Visitors to the memorial center wiU see the Gemini space capsule Grissom nicknamed "Molly Brown" in hopes that it would be unsinkable. His Mercury spacecraft, Liberty Bell 7, sank in the Atlantic when it filled with water and Grissom had to swim for his life. Also on display are Grissom's space suit and helmet worn on the Gemini flight, and the helmet that was found bobbing in the ocean after his rescue following his first flight July 21, 1961. Pictures from the Grissom family album and official NASA photos of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have been enlarged and formed into a huge montage on one wall f the memorial telling pictorially the life story of the astronaut who was born in Mitchell on April 3, 1926. A specially . equipped room adjoining the flight exhibits has the same darkened effect as is viewed by an astronaut in flight, and a huge rotating globe in the center of the exhibit shows the entire surface of the earth as viewed from thousands of miles in space. Special acoustical devices muffle all sounds except tape recordings of actual conversations between Grissom in his Gemini III capsule and NASA's Manned Space Center at Houston. Floyd man arraigned in shooting incident A 21-year-old New Albany man was arraigned in Floyd Circuit Court yesterday on charges of assault and battery with intent to kill in connection with a shooting incident early last Saturday. John E. Ingle, of the 1400 block of Chartres Street, pleaded not guilty. Judge Paul Tegart set bail at $5,000. Ingle is charged with firing a shotgun at a man and three women riding in an auto near the Sherman Minton Bridge. Ingle and two other men were in a second vehicle which pulled alongside the auto, police said. No one was injured. being sued the suit said elsewhere, "the limitation of discharges to blowdown from closed-cycle systems may not be adopted by the administrator as a federal standard, nor may he attempt to secure adoption of the standard by the states ..." The prescription for closed-cycle cooling, the suit said, "is clearly an engineering standard, rather than a water-quality standard as authorized by the act. An engineering standard is patently beyond the administrator's statutory authority to adopt or to seek to impose on the states." All steam-electric power plants use j large quantities of water to cool and ; condense steam, creating a pressure dif- ! ference that drives their turbines. The Cook plant was designed for "once-through" cooling, drawing enormous amounts of water from Lake Michigan, using it to cool the condensers, and then discharging it at a higher temperature back into the lake. , A variety of methods may be used to cool the heated water before discharge; closed-cycle cooling would keep the heated water out of the lake almost entirely, but is generally the most costly approach. - BEDFORD Thomas H.

The South Spencer County School Board has adopted a budget for the next school year calling for $1,212,638 in the general fund, an increase of $13,688 or 1.14 per cent above this year's budget. It was below the 2 per cent increase which the board said it planned to hold the general fund budget. The board cut $7,500 from the administration fund and added $15,900 in pupil transportation. The transportation increase was due to a plan to purchase two new buses. . The budget will require a $3.75 tax rate for the general fund, 11 cents for debt service and 75 cents for a cumulative building fund. "I don't see how anyone can kick," William Miller, a board member, said about the action.

Hugh Dillin said yesterday that the Department of Health, Education and Welfare is perhaps "the most incompetent department ever established in the history of the American republic." Dillin attacked the department for failure to make information readily available about the long-range impact of racial desegregation plans in many American cities. Dillin, presiding over the trial of a federal desegregation suit against the Indianapolis School Board, requested the data last week and renewed his plea as testimony ended in the seventh trial day yesterday. The judge said he will hear closing arguments this afternoon and, noting that the 1971 school term will begin Sept. 7, said he will try to deliver a ruling during the week of Aug. 9. After hearing testimony last week from an HEW official, Theron Johnson, Dillin asked Justice Department attorney John D. Leshy to provide him with HEW data concerning long-term effects of racial desegregation plans. Could 'have a relationship' The judge said the information could "have a relationship to this case."
