CPA To Conduct Survey INDIANAPOLIS (UPI>- Robert Garton, Columbus, chairman of a student employment project of the'Indiana Council for Private Action, today announced the CPA will conduct a survey on campuses of state-supported universities to determine what. 1970 summer jobs are needed. Garton said the survey will be made during the spring semester. He said a sample survey made among Indiana University students at Bloomington "indicates the program will be successful;" The • results of • the • ample study in which students filled out questionnaires concerning their need and interest in summer jobs will be used in the full survey. Garton said Indiana Bell Telephone Co. has agreed to make available the commercial managers in all its offices to assist on the summer employment program. " Indiana Bell has 35 commercial managers whose areas in<elude 132 cities and towns. Garton said the purpose of the summer employment survey is "to create two-way communications between the supply— the students—and the demand— .. business." The CPA. is one of two nonprofit associations of private organizations and individuals that work in cooperation with Governor Whitcomb in handling problems that arise in state government in which volunteers can be of help. The other is the Governor's Economy Program in which 62 business executives conducted a survey of major state governmental departments to determine ways In which they might operate more efficiently. CAPE KENNEDY—Astronaut Carles Conrad, suggesting that. the problem of getting to the moon was secondary in the Apollo 12 flight: "From the time we started on Apollo 12, my philosophy with the crew and everyone else we dealt with was that the name of the game in Apollo 12 is . lunar exploration, and that's what we have - devoted the" majority of our time to." Death, By PHILIP" BALBONI H Y A N N IS PORT, Mass. (UPI)- Joseph P. Kennedy, multimillionaire father of a President and two VJS. Senators in a tragedy-stalked family, died . He was 81. The patriarch of the fabulous Kennedy clan who lost two son '— one a President and the other a senator— to assassins' bullets was an invalid since felled by a stroke nearly eight years ago. Death came at 11:05 a.m. (EST) after Kennedy, who was U.S.- ambassador . to. Great Britain at the start of World War II, suffered the latest in a string of heart attacks Saturday. A family spokesman issued the following statement: "Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy died peacefully today at his home", in Hyannis Port. He was 81 years old. "Mr. Kennedy was pronounced dead at 11:05 a.m. by his physician, Dr. Robert D. Watt. With him at the time of his,death were his wife and the members of his family." Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- • Mass., his lone surviving son who spent the night in a lonely vigil at his father's bedside, was with the senior Kennedy when he • died. The senator's mother, Mrs. Rose Kennedy, his wife Joan and R, Sargent Shriver, U.S. ambassador to Prance, also were present. , Family sources said the last rites of • the Romna Catholic church were administered to Kennedy two or three . times within the last month. ; As his condition deteriorated, all members of the glamorous Kennedy family gathered at the Kennedy compound overlooking Nantucket Sound where he once sailed with his family. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, widow of Present John F. Kennedy, flew in from her island home at Skorpios, Greece. Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, widow of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, came from Wash-, ington. A man who equated money with power and., power with money, Kennedy molded a political family of flair and imagination. Kennedy, a saloonkeeper's son, amassed a fortune estimated at. up to a. half-billion dollars. He admittedly was one •of America's 20 wealthiest men. But for all his wealth, his life was scarred with tragedy. Four of his nine children—including three of his four sons—died violently. Assassins killed sons President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, -D-N,Y V who was running for the presidency in .1968. A third son, Joseph Jr., was killed in World War IL Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., his lone surviving son, is considered a potential candidate, for the presidency.

Rose, 79, and four daughters, Mrs. Sargent Shriver, wife of the ambassador to ' France, Mrs. Patricia Lawford, former wife'of actor Peter Lawford, Mrs. Stephen Smith, and Rosemary Kennedy, who is mentally retarded and in a midwesten convent. Stricken with a stroke at his winter home in Palm Beach, Fla., in 1961, Kennedy, subsequently suffered a brain spasm, several heart attacks and, on March 5, 1967, a heart "block 1 for which hp twice was given oxygen. When President Kennedy was assassinated Nov. 22, 1963, his father was so ill the- family waited 24 hours- before telling him. his Yet he anguish was able to hide and watched his son's funerhl and burial in Arlington Na|ional Cemetery on television, Less than |five years later, on June 5, 1968, he overheard a telephone conversation between his wife and son, Edward.

But his really big profits came after repeal because he had been' foresighted enough to get the U.S. distributorship for. three ; of Britain's biggest distillers.

Interstate Commerce Commission reluctantly gave conditional endorsement Monday to proposals for a temporary halt in- discontinuance of any more passenger trains. " The proposed "moratorium" - on passenger train suspensions is acceptable, the commissioners said, but only ifit is accompanied by federal subsidies • compensating railroads for operating losses. In addition, they said, Congress should lay the groundwork for a'long-term solution to the declining passenger s e r> i c e problem by authorizing a broad study of national rail transportation heeds that the ICC asked for a year ago. .-. The commissioners appeared before a House Commerce subcommittee . studying bills that would impose a moratorium; provide for various methods, of subsidizing' passenger train service, and specifically em-- -power the ICC to set and enforce minimum standards of -convenience, comfort and cleanliness for passenger service.
