(UPl Telephoto) Kennedy meets new German leader By Doris Fleeson BONM — President Kennedy has assigned one hour of his crowed German schedule for private conversation with Viee- Chsncellor Ludwig Erhard, who is expected to succeed Chancellor Konrad Adenauer October 1. The Kennedy-Erhard political styles are as different as llieir pliysical configurations. Some people have even suggested that Erhard lacks political know-how to a degree which will make his ten ure as head of state brief indeed. Among tlie critics who advance this notion is the intensely political Chancellor, an adept at the thrust and parry of that rough game. Dr. Erhard's consistent refusal to reply in like terms has to some e.\tent impaired his party standing and his press notices. An American correspondent recently asked him why he had permitted such impairment. With a twinkle. Erhard replied that it was forbidden in Germany to deface a national monument. At tliis point it appears that his strategy has worked. He has sumved. Yet Adenauer put the crucial problem of German economic recovery into Erhard's hands and rarely interfered with him. The tremendous success achieved under the Erhard management has been speaking loudly for itself for some time and offers a firm ground for the Kennedy-Erhard association. Kennedy is a better economist than any recent President and more respectful of that dismal science. Erhard was a professor of economics. As liberal intellectuals, they can discuss such matters as greater German contributions to aid for undeveloped countries and Western defense, the Common Market and fiscal policy. In the area of international affairs, Erhard is less sure-footed. Here Erhard repaid in full Adenauer's withholding of his hand in economics. SACnAME.VTO (UPI) — Gov. Edmund G. Brown, warning that California could become "a state like Jlississippi" if the legislature doesn't accept his fiscal program, huddled with Democratic leaders today in an attempt to agree on strategy for a special session. Meanwhile, top Republicans stumped the state "alerting the people" about Brown's proposed tax reforms. One key lawmaker scheduled to meet with Brown was Senate President Pro Tern Hugh Bums of Fresno, who last week helped vote down the administration's ta,\ proposals. E.\acUy when the legislature was to reconvene was still un certain. Brown had announced he would call the iawTnakcrs back next Monday. But Tuesday he said he would not make a final decision until after today's meeting. "These people have been up here a long, long time and they may have some different ideas," he said. "I'm not issuing any proclamation until I've discussed it with them." Brown said he was uncertain what revenue measures he would propose during the extra session, but restated he was "completely dedicated to the fact" that the legislature - passed budget would put C a 1 i f 0 r n i a in "desperate straits." "U you want to put Califom'ia back into the status of a state like Mississippi, then proceed with this budget," he said. The record $3,l-billion state expenditure passed by the legislature was 7 per cent higher than last year's, but less than the S3.2 billion asked by Brown. The tax reform program, including withholding and accelerated payments of bank and corporation taxes, would have raised the extra money to implement new administration-backed programs. Ireland nearly didn't have a government DUBLLV, Ireland (UPl) - Ireland almost didn't have a gov ernment to greet President Ken nedy today. With hundreds of thousands of Irishmen and visitors waiting to cheer Kennedy during a sentimental journey to the land of his ancestors, parliament came within one vote of upsetting the apple cart. Two independent politicians saved the day for Premier Sean Lemass' government. "Tuesday night, on the eve of Kennedy's arrival from Berlin, the government squeaked through to a 72-71 victory in a parlimen- tary vote of confidence on a sales tax bill. The two independents joined the 70 members of Le mass' Fianna Fail party. Had Lemass lost, his government would have collapsed just hours before the American President stepped off the plane for his three-day visit. Ireland expected its biggest crowds in its histor>" to welcome Kennedy this afternoon. Kennedy will meet President Eamon de Valera, the 80-year' old BrookljTi-bom revolutionary hero, and Premier Lemass; visit his family's homestead—now a tin- roofed shack near New Ross: receive the freedom of five cities and become the first foreigner to address a joint session of the Dial parliament. Although Kennedy's visit to Ireland will be the least political of his European tour, most Irishmen confidently expect it to be the hi^ spot of his trip. Much of the evidence frankly will be on sentiment — on the theme of the great-grandson of a poor Irish emigrant returning as the chief executive of the world's mightiest nation.

LEGENDS IN THE MAKING - John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th president of the United States, is visiting Ireland (Eire) — and thereby, no doubt, will hang many a fine tale in the years to come, in this ancient land of legend. lore and story.

Diplomats say Khrushchev to visit Cuba NEW YORK (UPD-DiplomaUc sources predicted today Premier Nikita Khrushchev will be in Cas- troite Cuba a month from today, joining in celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the abortive Santiago revolt. Castro spent more than a month in Russia this spring and was an honor guest in .AIoscow's Red Square on May Day. It was announced while he was there that Khrushchev would visit Cuba this year, but no date was set. Jackie to weekend in Rhode Island WASHINGTON (UPl) - Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy and her two children were scheduled to leave Thursday for Newport, R.I., where they will spend a long weekend at her mother's estate.

(UPD - Fuel oil heats more homes in the United States than natural gas, coal or electricity, reports the Oil and Gas Journal. Heating oils account for $3 billion in sales annually and is second only to gasoline among crude oil products in dollar sales. It seems unlikely then that Erhard can step altogether gracefully into Adenauer's shoes with respect to the special Franco-German relationship shaped by the two great Europeans, Adenauer and French President Charles de Gaulle, both of them Catholics and aristrocrafs. There is nothing of the mystic about the prosaic Protestant, Erhard, but it would be equally untrue to say that to him gloo' consists of a favorable balance of trade. He is for a free economy, but he has served too often as mediator between big business and big labor to be under any illusions about mere bigness. He has remarked that business and labor will, if allowed, squeeze the public in the name of higher profits and bigger wages. Officially West Germany has continued to say that Great Britain is a pcUl of Europe and will eventually receive membership in the Common Market despite the de Gaulle veto. Eriiard supports this view. The outlook then is for things to go on mudi as before in the near future. But here again the winds of change are blowing, and few are willing to make predictions beyond the certainty that President Kennedy is a welcome visitor and will get a great reception everywhere he goes. His great test remains The Wall, over which the East Germans can scarcely look and may not listen and wiiere West Berliners live well physically but must subsist spiritually on faidi and hope. (Copyright, 1963, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) McCarthy continues fight against Brown S.AN DIEGO (UPI)-Statc Sen. John F. McCarthy, R-San Rafael, continued his four-day campaign against Gov. Edmund G. Brown's proposed financial program today with a news conference and luncheon. The state Senate minority leader opened his campaign in Los Ang:eles Tuesday with a speech criticizmg the governor's program as an "historic fiscal blunder." McCarthy, due (o speak at press conference and at a lunch with local Republican leaders today, also said he is opposed to Brown's intention to put his plan before the legislature in a special session. He said the main reason Gov. Brown's program failed was because the governor refused to con sider reasonable alternatives to his key requests, which included a state personal withholding tax. These, he said, were not reforms but new taxes, and he predicted that if a special session is called they "will fail once again."

SUPPORTS COFFEE PACT WASHINGTON (UPl) — The United States intends to ratify the international coffee agreement which is designed to stabilize declining coffee prices. The United States imports 51.7 per cent of the world's coffee, and Monday's formal announcement to the United Nations meant that 11 countries representing 78.3 per cent of world imports have declared their support of the agreement \T\%h relatives prepare to receive Kennedy "Weil, you said find something to interest her and that stack of unpaid bills in your desic seems to be just the ticket!" SIDE GLANCES By GUI Fox c ua tr NU. iK .TM.in.ns .ritaft DUNGA.\STOWN, Ireland (UPI) —Relatives of President Kennedy prepared to receive him Thin^day in this tiny Irish village his forebears left behind more than a century ago to go to America. Mrs. Mary Ryan, a cousin three times removed, scrubbed out her best teapot today so she can give the President some refreshment when he visits the family homestead. Once before, when Kennedy was just a junior member of the House of Representatives, he came to Ireland and looked up Jlrs. Ryan. It was the first time she learned that one of her relatives was a rising young American politician. At that time they talked longer —and probably more easily—than they will ITiursday. Thursday there will be three helicopters, 500 newsmen, television cameras and enough police and sectu-ity men to guard the President of the United States. The stopover for lea at Mrs. Ryan's plus visits to nearby Wexford and New Ross are expected to be the sentimental highlights of Kennedy's four days in Ireland. The original home of the Kennedy family is now a tin-roofed shack in the back of Mrs. Ryan's house in Dunganstown—a cluster of cottages too sn\all to rate recognition on most maps of Ireland. The government has put down special concrete in the front yard in preparation for the visit. Three separate telephone lines for the President's use have been strung to the house. Special camera used Cooper's photos to aid future space efforts "Rodney, you're a dear boy to give an o!d lady a lift Would it embarrass you if I yelled 'Zo\yie!'?" By BART KINCH United Press International Two experiments of tremendous importance to future U. S. space efforts were part of Maj.L. Gordon Cooper's photographic mis sion during his 22-orbit flight around the world. National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials said the experiments included studies of the earth's sunlit horizon to determine how it can be used to obtain a reliable navigational "fix" in future space ventures and the testing of various infrared film and filter combinations for cloud penetrating qualities for future weather tracking satellites. Cooper used a Hasselblad 500C single-lens reflex camera, modified to acconunodate a 70mm magazine and to reduce weight. Camera specialist Roland •Red" Williams modified the off- the-shelf Hasselblad Cooper used. Wilh'ams, an RCA Service Company technician at the Au: Force missile Test Center, stripped the camera of its chrome and leath er. Then he removed the viewing hood with its mirror, ground glass and magnifier to save weight. He also modified the handle and removed the viewfinder. After the new magazine was fitted to the camera body, the Hasselblad was covered with a suede-like material that adheres to the special fabric lining the space capsule cabin. ^Vhen not in use during periods of weightlessness, the camera was merely pressed against the side of the cabin where it remained within reach until needed again. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where scientists are engaged in developing the guidance and navigational system for the Apollo space craft, designed the special dark slide made up of red and blue Alters that was mounted just ahead of the film plane. From Cooper's photographs the MIT team hopes to defme a suitable invariant horizon line in the atmosphere near the earth's surface as a navigation aid for future space flights. When the results of Cooper's photographic efforts are evaluated and put to use, it may mean that some future-astronaut will be able to take a sextant sighting on the earth's horizon. The U. S. Weather Bureau enlisted Cooper's camera talents to determine how infrared rays are reflected from the earth's surface, and the cloud penetration ability of infrared fihn with various filter combinations. For the weather bureau pictures, a filter mosaic containing Wratten W-70, W-88A and W-87C Alters was substituted for the dark slide. During his 16th orbit, while in fly-by-wire control of his capsule. Cooper took eight pictures of the horizon. The program called for two shots in each quadrant of the earth's surface. During Cooper's 17th and 18th orbits, the infrared experiment was completed. All the photos were shot at f-2.8 with a standard SOmm lens. On the 21st orbit Cooper completed the horizon definition assignment with seven sets of three exposures each, programmed at intervals of six minutes, thereby covering the entire daylight period of that orbit. Upon reentry, recovery personnel removed the Hasselblad and two other cameras (a 35nim camera and a special lOmm movie camera), placed them in plastic bags and flew them by jet to Cape Canaveral. stenographer becomes princess LOS -ANGELES (UPI) - A pretty 20-year-old setnographer becomes aprincess Saturday when she marries Prince Otuokere they will move to Nigeria.

Reveals plan for Marine high school PHOENIX (UPD-Plans to open a high school Marine military academy by 1965 in Prescott, Ariz., were disclosed today by a retired Marine general. Calling the proposed academy the only one of its type in the United States, Marine Gen. E.A. Pollock, ret, told a luncheon audience that included Arizona Gov. Paul Fannin and Phoenix Mayor Sam JIardian a private, nonprofit group will attempt to raise $1.5 million to put the academy into operation. Pollock, a 38-year Marine veteran who commanded troops on Guadalcanal during World War II, said the academy's backers are attempting to acquire 35 acres of the old Fort Whipple Military Reservation from the federal government as the site of the school. He said it would open with an estimated 400 students paying $2,000 a year, and would be expanded to 800 students. Taylor reveals plan for second demonstration LOS ANGELES (UPD - Negro integration leader Dr. Christopher Taylor Tuesday night announced plans for a second peaceful demonstration to support a campaign for total integration. Taylor said a Torrance housing tract had been chosen for a "strong demonstration" Saturday. •The president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said "We can show that we mean business by a large demonstration." The housing tract of builder Don Wilson in the community south of Los Angeles, has been the scene of several smaller demonstrations by members of the Congress of Racial Equality. Sit - ins at the tract have landed more than 40 members of CORE in jail. The first demonstration was held last Monday when nearly 1,000 persons marched through downtown Los Angeles to a Board of Education meeting in protest of alleged de facto school segregation.
