The subcommittee, headed by Democratic leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, has heard contradictory testimony from military leaders and scientists about the amount of service rivalry that still exists under supposed unification of the armed forces. But it can be said that most of the subcommittee members now are convinced there has been so much confusion and bickering among Army, Navy and Air Force leaders in the Pentagon that the nation's missile and satellite programs have been seriously handicap ped. No Unanimous Opinion Following this up in prepar ation for resumption of hearings Monday, the subcommittee's staff has delved far back into the records in its effort to determine where this con flict best can be dissolved. While there is no unanimous opinion, the prevailing impres sion among subc ommittee members seems to be that it might be best to start at the top of the military structure in any recommended shakeup. This could take the form of relieving the joint chiefs of command duties. The joint chiefs, consisting' of the heads of the three services, have the dual role of over-all military planning and of operating the individual services. This has led to some suggestions that their loyalty to their individual services has interfered with their decisions on over-all military plans, although Gen. Nathan F. Twining, chairman of the joint chiefs, has denied this in public testimony. Back to 1949 4w '''V::;.,;!'' -.-V.'.:', V-'v .' : . : '" ivyXiSyS1 :y::'s'y!y'ywy:v!. y , '- '..

Real Estate Broker's Exam Decision Against Green Bay Woman On Quiz Nullified Circuit Judge Edwin Wilkie of Dane County has ruled in Madison that the examination given by the Wisconsin Real Estate Broker's Board has "unreasonably high standards" for applicants for broker's licenses. Judge Wilkie's ruling grew out of a case involving a Green Bay woman. Mrs. Mirah Wall. 1230 Oregon St., who re Icently completed an examina tion for a real estate broker's license. Judge Wilkie Tuesday threw out the board order denying Mrs. Wall a license and order ed that the board give her "a fair opportunity" to get a license. Wilkie's ruling, how ever, does not mean that she automatically will get a license. The judge said the examina tion given Mrs. Wall has un- Finding Elephant at Door No Way To Greet New Year NOTTINGHAM, England (IP Mrs. Noreen Lindley Crawled out of bed the morning after New Year's Eve and shuffled to the front door to see who was making all that noise. She switched on the light and saw an elephant waving its trunk through the front door panelling. Mrs. Linley screamed, grabbed her two children and took off for her neighbors on the run. "We've got an elephant in the house," she reported. "Oh, go back to bed and sleep it off," the cross and sleeping neighbor answered. Mrs. Lindley left the children and ran back home where she saw what she thought were two elephant trunks, sparring. It was only her husband trying to ward off the elephant with the hose from the vacuum cleaner. Linley seemed to be holding his own so Mrs. Lindley sped to the police station. "We've got an elephant in the house," she told the first bobby she saw. "What color?" asked the bobby. "You come and have a" look." The bobby did.. He called reinforcements and eventually they persuaded the elephant to leave the front door. It lumbered down the street, pushed an empty automobile 50 yards and tried unsuccessfully to uproot a lamp post. A hero arrived in the form of its trainer from the circus from which jumbo had escaped.

Thus, he said, a personjthe Kust family. with an interest in tnree larms could collect up to $3,000 on each as the law is being interpreted by the department. Acts as Attorney Reuss, who acted as his own attorney in filing the suit, described himself as the author of an amendment he says was meant to limit total compensation paid to any one producer to $3,000 with respect to 1958 crops. Under the soil bank acreage reserve program, the government pays subsidies to farmers who agree to take out of production land which otherwise would be planted to crops al-j ready in surplus. Reuss said in his suit that Benson's actions "exceed his lawful authority." He asked the court to issue an injunction, Unless restrained by court order, Reuss said, Benson's actions will "frustrate the inten tion of the amendment" designed to limit payments. Reuss said payments under agricultural programs should not exceed what is necessary for the maintenance of family-sized farms. He contended that permitting a payment up to $3,000 on each farm owned by the same interests would result in con centration of farmlands in the hands of a few large landowners and promote the extinction of the small farmer. Furthermore, he said, there will be insufficient money available to pay eligible per sons the amount to which they are entitled unless there is a limit of $3,000 on any one pro ducer, regardless of the number of his farms.

Government troops took a rebel radio station at Los Teques, about 23 miles from the capital, and used it to announce that the rebel garrison there had surrendered. Perez Jimenez said in a three-minute radio and television announcement this aft ernoon that the rebellion was over and that the death toll and property damage had been kept to a minimum. The army chief of staff, Gen. Romulo Fernandez, in a broad cast said the rebellious garrison at Maracay, center of the revolt, had been taken by government forces at 3:30 a.m. Fernandez added, however, that scattered pockets of rebels were being mopped up. The army chief repeated the claim by President Perez Jimenez in a broadcast Wednesday night that the rest of the country the world's No. 2 oil producer was completely calm. Fernandez said that the rebel leaders fled by air. He reported that Aurelio Ferrevo Tamay, commander of the Maracay .garrison and governor of the state of Araqua, had been restored to his post along with his chief aide.

A note smuggled ashore brought rescue for Richard Sias, his wife and four children. Today, their brash captors from San Antonio, Tex., faced court action by officials who considered bringing charges of kidnaping and even the archaic crime of piracy. Appearance before Criminal Court Judge Thomas S. Caro was scheduled at Key West for Mike Moore, 17, Tommy Edwards, 15, and Johnny Cox, 16.

"They were polite and didn't use any foul language," he said, "but they kept the gun on me and my wife and made me do what they wanted." Sias said the boys first in- j sisted they should take off ! right away for Mexico and he persuaded them it would be necessary to take on more fuel, obtainable, only the next morning. The Fiesta II went into Islamorada for fuel and while it lay there, young David managed to slip ashore momentarily with a note which he handed to Murry Cribb. a docker. The note said: "We are being held at gunpoint. Get help." Cribb rushed to a garage nearby and telephoned the sheriff's department. Monroe County deputies bor-. rowed a motorboat and gave the Fiesta II put to sea with David peering anxiously astern for signs of rescue and his mother frantically waving from a cabin doorway to watchers who already were hurrying to the dock. Deputies Norman Parker and John Hovey overhauled the loafing yacht and as they came abeam, the Texas teen-agers dropped their guns overboard and surrendered. Lt. Rene Raiole of the sheriffs department said the boys, before ordering Sias to sea, loaded his yacht with such a conglomeration of goods that the Fiesta II actually took on a list. Among the articles put on the yacht were auto tires, barbecue equpipment, am-, munition, blankets, food and motor oil. The items are being checked for. ownership, deputies saidf . 4
