Academy Award Presentations Set Tonite Natalie, Sophia Contend SANTA MONICA, Calif. (UPI) --Sophia Loren and Natalie Wood were among the leading contenders today for best actress of the year laurels at tonight's Academy Awards presentations. The 34th a n n u a l Academy Awards shindig will see 28 golden -statuettes distributed to performers, writers, technicians, directors and musicians for outstanding contributions during 1961. Favored to come away with most of the awards is the musical, "West Side Story" with close competition from "Judgment al Nuremberg."- Also in contention are "The Hustler," "The Guns ol Navarone" and "Fanny." Both pictures won 11 nominations last month. Close Competition Unlike last year, when Elizabeth Taylor was Ihe sentimental favorite to win the best actress award, competition this year is very close in almost all categories. Vying for best actress are Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's), Piper Laurie (The Hustler), Sophia Loren (Two Women) ; Geraldine Page (Summer and Smoke) and Natalie Wood (Splendor in the Grass). Best actor nominees are Charles Eoyer (Fanny), Paul Newman (The Hustler), Maxmilian Schel! (Judgment at Nuremberg), Spencer Tracy (Judgment at Nurem. berg) and Stuart Whitman (The Mark). Judy Garland, competing with Fay Bainter, Lotte Lenya, Una Merkel and Rita Moreno in the best supporting actress race, appears to have won more sentimental votes than any other performer. She played a small role hi "Judgment at Nuremberg." For the second consecutive year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Awards will be held at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Lack of theater space in Hollywood forced academy board members to move to the Santa Monica Auditorium which has a capacity of 2,500. Comedian Bob Hope will be the master of ceremonies for the 10th time. The presentations will be telecast and broadcast at 10:30 p.m. EST via ABC-TV and radio. Mom Mishap Al Richland Injures Four HIGHLAND, Wash. (UPI) Three employes of the Hanford atomic works remained hospitalized today for observation of possible radiation effects. A fourth man, Glen Thoeness, 44, was released from the hospi tal here Sunday. Thoeness and the three other men were taken to Kadlec Hospital Saturday following a release of radioactivity in a recovery building where they were working at the Hanford works near here. The three other men were Harold Aardal, 40, J.R. Williamson, 27, and Frank Lohdefinch, 50, all of Richland. A spokesman for the General Electric Co., which-operates the Hanford facility for the Atomic Energy Commission, said the cause of the conditions leading up to the radioactivity release have not been determined, but are under investigation. A spokesman for the AEC said earlier the release occurred as a result of a nuclear criticality incident, which involves an over- concentration of fissionable material in one spot. The AEC spokesman said it was not known what caused the overconcentration. At the time of the incident, the four men were involved in processing watery wastes for the recovery of scrap plutonium. Flu Ionium is the main product of the Hanford works.

Brown called the legislature into a rare special budget session today to try to reconcile a Republican and Democratic deadlock over his spending pro;ram. The Democratic governor, up or re-election this year, went he- ore the legislature to urge an end to partisan bickering which le said was over "an area of dif- erence of less than one-half of 1 per cent of the total ($2.9 bil- lon) budget" "The time has come," Brown said, "for reasonable and responsible men to resolve these small ifferences and get on with the work of California." The governor's original budget, submitted to the lawmakers in February, totaled $2.88 billion. The budget agreed upon by a conference committee of the two houses last week but rejected by Republican Assemblymen on almost a straight party line vote totaled $2.89 billion. In the revised version the governor submitted today 'he asked for $2.88 billion to run state government for the fiscal year starting July 1. With but four exceptions it was le same budget the conference committee came up with last Tuesday.

Fortified by the backing of more than 90 per cent of Uie voters in Sunday's referendum, De Gaulle scheduled a series of consultations with his top aides to speed his next steps.

But he said if state college teachers get an extra pay boost, equal consideration should be given faculty at the University of California. lassive Vole dependence he cast his vole, to meet with Premier Michel Debre. He called a cabinet meeting for Wednesday. His first immediate task was to decide whether to order parliamentary elections as a follow-up to his referendum victory. In the voting Sunday, 90.7 per cent of the valid ballots approved De Gaulle's request for acceptance of the peace agreement ending the 7'A-year Algerian war. De Gaulle regarded the results as a vote of confidence in his overall policies aimed at restoring France as a world power. The election outcome represented a crushing condemnation by the French in France proper of the . Secret Army Organization (OAS) which has plunged Algeria into a reign of terror in a last- ditch effort to keep the territory from Moslem rule. The election meant that the vast majority of Frenchmen, as opposed to the million diehard Europeans in Algeria, were content to write off Uie long Algerian war and to give De Gaulle a free hand to complete the decolonizing process in the territory. In addition to completing Algerian independence, De Gaulle was expected to push ahead with other programs that have beea held in abeyance pending an Algerian settlement. rod Tomorrow Councilmen didales for the two seats open.

Reserve and Nation- 1 Guard forces would get $46 million for new facilities. In rejecting McNamara's re- uest for a special $50 million mergency construction fund, the ommittee said it always hat iven the services $10 million each or this purpose. "This provision has proven ade- uate. . .in the past," it said. Therefore, the committee was ot persuaded that a change in lis policy was necessary or jus- ified." One of the two other funds McNamara wanted would have al owed the Pentagon to use the proceeds of its disposal of surplus iroperties for relocating facili- ies which are of marginal use to he services in their present locations. "The committee rejected this proposal," Chairman Carl M. Vinon said, "since it was of the pinion that this procedure, in the ast analysis, represented 'back- oor financing,' which, for prac- cal purposes, conflicts with the egular appropriations process." McNamara also requested a re- olving fund which would have sed forfeited allowances for quar- ers to defray the cost of new military family housing. The committee said this would distort" the appropriations proc- ss used by Congress. "Military family housing re- uirements, like all other military onstruction," it said, "should be ubjecl to the same careful con- ressional scrutiny that is now irovided by the responsible legis- ative and appropriating commit- ees." Security Council Condemns Israel For Syria Fighting UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (UPI) --The Security Council today un- nimously approved an Anglo- \merican resolution which, in ef- ect, condemned Israel for last month's fighting with Syria at the ea of Galilee. France abstained in the 10-1 ote. The resolution did not pro- ounce outright condemnation of srael for tile March 17 Galilee ostilities, but declared that the ouncil "reaffirms the Security Council resolution of 19 January 956 which condemned Israeli mil- tary action in breach of the gen- ral armistice agreement, whelh- r or not undertaken by way, o etaliation." Israel, denouncing the measure s a "one-sided" resolution, indi- aled that it would ignore the ouncil action. Reports from the Sea of Galilee, now known as Lake Tiberias, said oday that Israeli police boats irobably would resume patrols to ·nable Israeli fishermen to work ull time. Israel contended tha Syria fired heavy guns from position in the demilitarized zone lanking the lake, on its polic boats and that it was forced t destroy the position to silence th guns. Last-minute switches by th United Arab Republic and the So vict Union left France as the Ion abstainer.

The city's planning consultants, .ivingston and Blayncy, say in heir report to the City Council: "The ordinance regulates use of the land, population densities, land coverage, and heights of structures, and requires off-street larking and off-street loading facilities. The ordinance consists of a map showing the various land use districts and a set of regu- ations, standards, and administrative procedures. "The General Plan is a long- range guide for future physical levelopment while the Zoning Or- linance is a relatively short-range egulatory measure. The zoning map will never look the same as be General Plan because it must e more detailed and must re- lect present conditions quite closely. "All amendments to the zoning map should be in the direction of conformity with the General Plan and the middle-range development plans as of the date of the change. Cost of preparing the Zoning Ordinance will be $8,400. Two-thirds will be paid by he federal government. The city's one-third will consist of staff serv- ces (Planning Department) and cash. "Each of the reports on the Jans and programs and the Zon- ng Ordinance necessarily will be detailed and somewhat technical n nature. Consequently, to inform he public it will be desirable to mblish a popular summary re- lort describing the results of the entire planning program. This report will be relatively brief and rill be illustrated with plates se- ected from the earlier reports, t can serve the additional purpose of promoting the economic levelopment of Eureka. "Cost of the summary report will be $4,800. The federal government will pay two-thirds and he city's contribution will be in cash." First step in carrying out the planning program was the City ;ouncil's adoption of a resolu- ion applying for the federal unds. This application must be approved by the State Planning Advisory Committee and the U. S. Urban Renewal Administration. Of the $261,164 total cost (not including the Community Renewal 'rogram, the federal share will be $174,122.67. Local share will be $87,061.33. Of this $21,500 worth ol staff services will be contributed toward the local share, leaving $65,561.33 cash to be made up by he city, the school district, cen- ral district property owners and msinessmcn, and harbor and shoreline interests.

To Sec Castro The public trial of the prisoners, for whom the death penally lad been asked of the five-man court, ended last Tuesday with no announcement of a verdict. The "Cuban Families Committee for Liberation of Prisoners of War" cabled Castro Sunday it was prepared to "definitely settle negotiations and liberate all prisoners." The group said it would be able to offer "products or articles' valued at $28 million and Castro agreed to meet with the four-man delegation. The committee's cable, signer, by Chairman Alvaro Sanchez Jr. said the "firm offer . . . does not refer to tractors." In a speech ast May 17 Castro made his "tractors for prisoners" offer, asking that the captives be exchanged for 500 tractors worth about $2 million.

Some sources observed that Castro might be trying to establish some diplomatic contact with the United States because no death sentences were handed down at last week's trial. Shipwrecked Seven To Fly Out Of Cuba HAVANA (UPI) -- Cuba today cleared seven shipwrecked American treasure hunters for an in- mediate return home. The Swiss Embassy said the men would leave Havana for Miami on a noon PST flight. An embassy officer will escort them to the airport. The Swiss, who have been handling American problems in Cuba since Ihe United States broke relations with the Fidel Castro regime, said they were "in touch" with authorities on passage home for the seven men. "As you know," an embassy spokesman said, "their departure does not depend on us but the Cuban authorities." The 'seven have been given plush treatment ever since they reached Havana last week. They were living in the swank Hotel Riviera, with the Cuban government apparently paying the bills. Gordon S. Patton of Pompano Beach, Fla., leader of the treasure-hunting group, said they lost iractically everything when their boat, the Pisces, struck a rock and sank in 50 feet of water last Thursday off Cuba's Oriente Province. Hold News Conference The Americans told a news conference Sunday they intend to ry again for sunken Caribbean treasures after they reach the United States and line up more equipment. "We believe we know where a )ig treasure is and we're after t." Patlon said. "We can say Hint we have been treated nicely all the way and we want to express our gratitude for that," he said. After the news conference, (lie men went on a government sightseeing lour in l\vo limousines. Saturday night they saw (he floor show at the hotel club. The conference was arranged through the Swiss Embassy. A Swiss diplomat 'was present. Palton said the Pisces ran into high waves while sailing the windward passage between Cuba and Haiti. The boat was driven onto a reef and sank within 10 minulcs. The seven men got to shore in a lifeboat, and walked some dis- ancc before meeting anyone. All seven appeared healthy when t a l k i n g to newsmen. They expressed surprise at the interest their adventure had aroused, In the United States.
