(UPl Telephoto) Leave the driving to us Baby girl born on bus to dismay of fellow passengers BEDFORD, Pa. (UPI)-Victor Bacher, 36, of Pittsburgh, a Greyhound bus driver, today went a ]ilUe beyond his company's slogan of "take the bus and leave tlic driving to us." Baehor helped deliver a 5-pound 3-ounce baby girl in his bus at 6:30 a.m.. EDT while cnroute to .New York City from Cleveland, Ohio. It all started mmutes after Bachor halted his bus at the Howard Johnson Midway Restaurant on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near the Bedford Interchange for a rest stop. He was approached by Mrs. Edward Bachman, 41, of New Castle. Del. . "You better do something, Mrs. Bachman said.

U.S. Weaffier Bureau Neen Forecast Low douds along the Southern California coastlme will spread inland to the slopes of the mountains early Friday morning and will persist until early Friday afternoon. There is a chance of a few scattered drizzles in the coastal sections Friday morning. Otherwise Southern California will have clear skies this afternoon, tonight and Friday. In the deserts winds will become gusty in the afternoons with peak velocities locally to 35 miles per hour with some local blowing dust and sand. West of the mountains highs will range from the upper 60s at the beaches to the middle 80s in the warmer intermediate valles's. The outlook for Saturday is for morning coastal cloudiness otherwise sunny weather with slightly warmer temperatures. Temperatures and precipitation for the 24-hour period ended at 4 a.m.: a baby." Unbelieving. Bachor did a double take. Mrs. Bachman persisted and Bachor went into action. He summoned a woman passenger, Mrs. Vicki Sterling o[ Seymour, Ind., and quickly related the circumstances. In minutes, the interior of the bus was filled with the wails of a new-born child. An ambulance arrived soon and Mrs. Bachman was taken to Bedford County Memorial Hospital. Both mother and child were reported in "good condition." Bachor. father of a 12-year-old daughter, climbed into the bus and resumed his journey with his somewhat dismayed passengers. Mrs. Bachman is the mother of five other children. Three of the children, Mildred, 16 Edward 5, and Laurie, 3 were v/ith her. She and the children had been visiting relatives in Alden, 111., and wore headed home. As yet, Mrs. Bachman has not decided on a name for her new daughter. She informed her husband by telephone of the event and he was reported en route to Bedford from the family home in New Castle. Canada says — No Cuban bound students fly by way of Prague Kennedy to arrive in Rome Monday DUBLIN (UPI) — The traveling White House announced today that President Kennedy will arrive in Rome on Monday instead of Sunday to avoid any conflict with the coronation of Pope Paul VI. In releasmg details of the President's visit to Italy, the White House said Kennedy will have a brief rest beside Lake Como before arriving in Rome for talks with Italian leaders and an audience with the Pope. Originally Kennedy planned to reach Rome from Milan on Sunday, but Pope Paul, who was elected pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church last Friday, has set his coronation for that day. Under the revised schedule, Kennedy probably will not return to the United States until the night of July 3. This might mean he will not be able to join his family on Cape Cod for the holiday weekend until the morning of July 4. By MERRIMAN SMITH UP! White House Reporter DUBLIN (UPD-The Ryans and all the folks back home took John F. Kennedy to their hearts today. President Kennedy left the affairs of state behind and went calling on his relations in southeastern Ireland, inviting seme of them to come see him at the White House. They said they would. In a relaxed and happy mood, the President toured the home lands of his ancestors by helicopter, car and on foot. He visited the old family homestead, traded quips with many a smiling Irishman, and grinned happily at the cheers and shouted greetings of "God bless you. Jack," from the thousands who welcomed him on his sentimental journey to the Emerald Isle. He conferred first this morning in Dublin with Irish Premier Sean Lemass. Then he went by helicopter to New Ross, where his great-grandfather sailed for America 113 years ago. After that, he journeyed by car to Dunganstown and tea with his second cousin once removed, and a family reunion with kinfolk near and distant. Then again by helicopter to We.xford to lay a wreath at the foot of a statue of Commodore John Barry, a native son of Ireland and father of the U.S. Navy. From there it was back to Dublin by helicopter and attendance at a formal garden party given by the president o( Ireland and a state dinner this evening given by the prime minister. Kennedy's wandering visit through the lush Irish countryside was an informal as an Irisn jig and everybody had a whale of a time except the secret service agents. The President himself had a ball. He kissed cousins at the ancestral shack in Dunganstown, hugged schoolchildren along the parade route and said the only Kennedys left in the area apparently "missed the boat" to the New World. It was a plainly nostalgic Chief Executive who observed that he was back among his ovra after 113 years, a 6.000-mile round trip and three generations. Kennedy reached the hearts of all Irishmen as soon as he arrived from Berlin Wednesday night. This favorite "son" was engulfed by such a delirious wel come that he was forced to leave his car and follow a flying security wedge through the crowd. Has Busy Schedule Other events included in Kennedy's three-day visit to Ireland were the receipt of two honorary degrees and the freedom of five cities, talks with Lemass and President Eamon de Valera and an address to parliament. The President will go to Eng land Saturday and then to Italy before returning to Washington. Kennedy's speech to the Dail (parUament) Friday will be the first ever by a foreign dignitary. The President's tea with 15 distant relatii-cs was set for the home of Jlrs. Mary Ryan, a third cousin, in tiny Dunganstown. Mrs. Ryan and her daughter, Josie, 24, live in a farmhouse built in 1S70. i In Mrs. Ryan's backyard is a I tin-roofed shack which was the ihome of Patrick Kennedy, the President's great- grandfather. Used until recently to store potatoes, the shack has been painted red and spruced up for the President's visit. It bears a plaque proclaiming it as "The Kennedy Homestead." In addition to Dunganstown. Kennedy's trip included New Ross, the town from which Patrick Kennedy set sail in 1850 for .'\meri- ca. and Wexford, the county seat and the home of Commodore John Barry, one of the founders of the U.S. Navy. First stop was New Ross, a sixth-century river port with 4,700 inhabitants. Next was Dunganstown for the half-hour tea. and then Wexford, a ninth-century seaport with a long and bloody his- torj- of rebellion. The finale of the day was a garden party back in Dublin at De Valera's residence followed by a dinner and reception given by Lemass. WASHINGTON (UPI) - U. S. college students heading for Havana holiday financed by the Castro regime apparently have decided they would not be able to dodge U. S. passport regulations by leaving from Canada. Officials said Wednesday that about 50 students — who originally were reported planning to get to Cuba via Canada — had flown from New York to Europe and apparently planned to make con nections with a Cuban-chartered flight in Prague. They and their Cuban sponsors presumably came to the conclu sion that Canada would block the High Low Boston S5 — Chicago &i 77 Denver 88 54 Fairbanks 70 56 Fort Worth 94 70 Honolulu 87 75 Kansas City 93 71 Las Vegas 102 71 Los Angeles 79 61 Miami 84 79 Minneapolis 84 67 New York 96 72 Oklahoma City 92 69 Palm Springs 107 Sacramento 87 53 Salt Lake City 87 58 San Francisco 58 56 Seattle 65 50 Washinstoo 92 63 .48 1.16 .03 Just another Kennedy SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)-John F. Kennedy's daughter is among the candidates for the "Miss Young Republican" title this week at the Young Republican National Convention. Marj' Anne Kennedy, 18, is "Miss New England." Her father, John F. Kennedy, is a bus driver in Providence, R.L flight just as it did last December, when the Canadian Depart ment of Transport refused to grant a diartered airliner per- jnission to take off on a siniilar student flight The officials said the students left New York Tuesday in two groups: 21 flew to Amsterdam on a KLM plane, and appro.ximately 30 caught a BOAC plane for London and Paris. U. S. officials in London, Amsterdam and Paris were ordered to intercept the students at the European airports and warn them that they would risk prosecution if they traveled to Havana without specially validated U.S. pasS' ports. Travel to Cuba without such a passport carries a possible penalty of five years in jail, a ?5000 fine, or both. None of the students had applied for permission to visit Cuba, officials said. Such permission is reserved for newsmen, businessmen with interests dating from before the United States severed relations with the Castro government, and other groups with legitimate interests in Cuba. Rushworth soars 55 miles into space in XI5 EDWARDS AFB (UPI) — Air Force JIaj. Bob Rushworth soared nearly 55 miles into space in the X15 rocket plane today to become America's second winged astronaut and post a record as the second highest flying airplane pilot in the world. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said Rush worth flew to an altitude of approximately 286,000 feet—a little over 54 miles—at a speed of about 3,545 miles an hour. Rushworth's towering flight came within an estimated live miles of the world airplane altitude record of 59.6 miles set in the X15 last year by Air Force Maj. Bob \Vhite, the first astronaut of winged aircraft, who has since returned to flying combat fighters. America's military spacemen and aircraft pilots win coveted astronaut wings when they surpass the 50-mile point in space. Thresher search hampered by vessels in area ABOARD THE USS FORT SNELLING AT SEA (UPD-Four ships, three of them Russian, sailed through the search area for the missing submarine Thresher during the past five days despite a U.S. Navy warning to all vessels to steer clear of the area, the Navy disclosed today. The Navy disclosure came about an hour before the bathys caph Trieste dived for the third time in an effort to locate the Thresher, vibich sank April 10 with 129 men aboard. The Navy said it served notice to all ships to remain out of an area m a 25-mile radius from the point where the nuclear powered submarine disappeared. The Navy said two foreign vessels, one Russian and the other unidentified, passed through the prohibited zone early today. The other two ships, both Russian, sailed into the area Sunday and Monday. Before dawn today an um'denti- fied ship sailed through the area about three miles from a marker buoy being used by the Trieste to guide her descent to the tx)t- tom. Later, at 9:15 a.m., a Russian siiip identified only by the numbers RT255, described by the Navy as a "mother ship" carrying supplies for the fleet of Russian trawlers off ihe U.S. coast, passed 1.3 miles from the marker buoy and within 1.3 miles of the Trieste. The Trieste, prowling the ocean bottom 8,400 feet below the surface, made sonar contact Wednesday with a 60-foot long unidentified object The contact came in an area where pictures were taken previously of debris believed from the sunken $43 million submarine. Three separate magnetic contacts also were made recently in this location some 220 miles off Massachusetts' Cape Cod. Republican Congressmen differ witli Wirtz on civil rights WASHINGTON (UPD-Repub- lican congressmen differed with Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz today over whether the administration's civil rights bill contains enough penalties for unions that keep cut Negro members. Rep. WilUam M. McCulloch, R Ohio, top GOP member of the House Judiciary Committee, called for additional sanctions against unions beyond cancellation of government contracts where discrimmation e.\ists. "We've proceeded so far without doing anything much about labor imions that discriminate," McCuUoch told Wirtz. The labor secretary disagreed and said building trades unions were completely committed to halt racial restrictions despite past practices. Wirtz said loss of jobs for union members when a government contract is cancelled is a "real sanction" that has been useful in eliminating job discrimination. Rep. George Meader, R-Mich., said" the low number of Negro] members in craft unions wasfciary Committee at the second 'fantastic." He cited newspaper reports that there were only 300 Negro union plumbers and electricians in the country. Wirtz, appealing for approval of the admmistration's proposals, said the problem was not confined to organized labor alone. He agreed with Rep. James C. Corman, D-Calif.. that the rate of discrimination in jobs not covered by labor contracts might be as high or higher than in union establishments. The partisan flurry took place after Wirtz assured Congress that more Negroes could be employed without throwing anyone out of work. "I am sure we are moving ahead fast enough on the economic front and on the training programs," Wirtz testified, "to take care of the elimination of discrimination without displacing any person." Wirtz, flanked by three assistants including two Negroes, appeared before the House Judi- day of hearings on President Kennedy's civil rights proposals. The labor secretary followed Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy in the witness chair to open the campaign for the President's proposals to lower racial barriers. Sayj Progrcsi Made Wirtz said the President's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity has made amazing strides m halfmg discrimmation by the federal government and U.S. contractors who employ 20 million workers. About one-fourth of newly hired workers in 105 companies which have signed anti-discrimination pledges have been from minority groups, he said. A total of 118 unions have signed similar pledges. "Yet much remains to be done," Wirtz said. He endorsed legislation to make the presidential committee permanent and to give the President authority to block use of federal funds in any proj- (Continued on Page 2) President visits nun, a third cousin Quote of Day MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Constance Baker Motley, attorney for the NAACP. arguing a circuit court case here: "No state can avoid or escape the responsibility of continuing segregation.

The angry debate centered around the "Dictionary of American Slang," a reference volume that defines at least 6,000 slang words and phrases. Among the listings are many otherwise unprintable e.xpressions connected with se.\. Tlie dictionary was lying unnoticed on many a high school sni library shelf until early last month when a Republican legisla-, tor, friendly to ultra-conservative causes, cited its existence and called for its removal from the public schools. His words served as a call to arms for various "citizens groups,'' that began at once to conduct a statewide campaign to ban the book. To prove that the dictionary was "pure filth," they collected about 250 definitions and compiled them in a five page list A spokesman for the citizens, William O'Leaiy of Los Altos, Calif., said that they planned to distribute 100,000 copies of the lists. The lists «'cre placed in cars parked on the University of Red- is the campaign limited now to public school libraries. In Santa Clara County, the Board of Supervisors ordered the book banned from the county library system, whidj services adults. In Butte C:ounty, the supervisors not only ordered removal from lands campus during the Methodist conference last week. At the moment, the lists are movmg over the state, touching off rows at meetings of local school boards, city councils and county boards ol supervisors. Nor the county system, but also told the librarian to "destroy" the book. Although the immediate dispute concerned the dictionary, the organized opponents had an equally vehement aim: To oust the current president of the state Board of Education, Thomas W. Braden. Braden, a newspaper publisher from Oceanside, Calif., has regularly urged local fdiool boards, to resist "pressure groups" that seek to enlorce their wills on the schools. But more importantly, he has regularly crossed swords with the chief administrator of the California school system. Dr. Max Rafferty. Rafferty, who won election last November with considerable ultraconservative support, has ui^ed the schools to remove the dictionary. . Braden neither endorsed nor condemned the dictionary, but did challenge Rafferty's right to tell mond Square m the center of Wexford to the field where he caught the helicopter back to Dublin. At the gates of the Loretc Convent, school children stood outside, with flags to welcome the President. Kennedy accompanied by one other man stepped from the open car and walked in through the gates. No one else followed them in. Mother Clement, the President's third cousin, said Kennedy "shook hands with me and the rest of the community." About 27 nuns had lined up inside the convent with the mother superior to greet the President. Sfother Clement, who has been superioress of the Loretto Con Premier David Ben-Gurion ii Calif.

Investigating officers said Miss .McDowell had pulled out to pass a truck on the U.S. 101 Ventura Freeway near this Southern California community when she saw Hill's car coming toward her on the wrong side of the freeway. She managed to swerve back behind the truck but Mohilo, who was followingg behind her, failed to get back into the right-hand lane in time and his car crashed head-on with Hill's vehicle. The truck continued on, apparently unaware of what had happened. No explanation was given for Hill being on the wrong side of the divided freeway. NOT EVERYTHING JIILWAUKEE (UPI) - Henr>' F. Bilek.
