Woods GORHAM, N. H. (AP) - A three - year-old Vermont girl was found unharmed by a learch party Sunday after spending the night alone in the White Mountains National Forest. Allison Aueritte, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Aueritte of Lyndonville, Vt., had been the target of a search that started with her disappearance from the Dolly Cop camping area about noon Saturday. More than 100 National Guardsmen and bloodhounds were used in the search. State police said the toddler was in good shape except for a few insect bites. Temperatures In the area were in the low 40s during the night. Ferrisburg Man Hurt in One-Car ADDISON - A Ferrisburg man was killed and three other men were injured when a 1964 convertible struck a tree head on just east of Champlain Bridge early Sunday morning, landing on its top and pinning the victim and a companion.

Germans, Americans for Berlin Crises BERLIN (AP) - Walter Ul-bricht was quoted Sunday as saying his regime is not trying to unleash a new Berlin crisis but that "certain West German and also American circles" are. "These same people have always assigned to West Berlin the role of a permanent crisis-cooker," the East German Communist party chief said in a speech before his party's central committee last week. The speech was published in the party organ, Neucs Deutsch-land. Ulbricht accused the West German government of trying to fan a crisis over the divided city "in order to cover up its intention to establish a military dictatorship in West Germany." The Americans, he added, have "deliberately prevented a peaceful solution of the West Berlin question because they wanted to prevent the Germans from governing Germany." The situation is abnormal in West Berlin and "it docs not look as if this situation will change in the near future," he went on. Regarding his regime's unilateral breach of Allied agreements regulating barge traffic between the city and West Germany, Ulbricht said nothing more was done than to remove rules of an occupation status which no longer exists. Ranger Bruce Piatt said the girl told of joining a group of searchers Saturday while "trying to find mommy and daddy's tent." " He said the child apparently became bored with the activity and again went off in search of the family tent. "When I couldn't find mommy or daddy," the girl was quoted as saying, "I got sleepy and layed down." Authorities said the girl probably wasn't spotted by the searchers because she apparently had discarded the bright, red jacket she was wearing when she disappeared. The child was found by searchers asleep in a clearing only 200 yards from the camp grounds. Killed, Three Addison Crash multiple fractures of both legs, a broken right arm, severe cuts on his legs and chin, and possible internal injuries. The fouth person, James Dudley, 20, of Vergennes, was taken to Middlebury's Porter Hospital with a cut leg. He was discharged early Sunday. State police said Dudley and Larrow were thrown free as the car flipped. The convertible was going east near the junction of Vermont 17 and 125 when it plunged off the right side of the road on a left curve. It traveled 56 feet out of control in a ditch, struck a small tree and careened another 30 feet before overturning. Before state police arrived, passers-by had righted the car to free the two trapped men. Hagan recently completed service in the Army and had bought the car only a few weeks ago. . Rogers' death was the second on Addison County roads in a 34-hour period and the seventh in the county this year. This number was not reached until Sept. 24 last year. & The East Germans Saturday began issuing their own documents to permit barges to haul freight between Wrest Berlin and West Germany over East German waterways. They declared permits issued by the four powers under a post-war agreement are void. Life Photographer Reports Viet Cong Terrorism Plans NEW YORK (AP) - A Viet Cong plan of increased terrorism against Americans and wholesale attacks on South Vietnamese units was reported Sunday by a Japanese photographer held prisoner for 53 days by the Viet Cong. Akihiko Okamura, who was sent behind the Viet Cong lines on assignment from Life magazine, said he got the information in a 10-hour interview with Deputy Chairman Huynh Tan Phat of the Viet Cong Central Committee. In an article in the current issue of Life, Okamura said Phat accurately predicted last Friday's bombing of a Saigon restaurant, in which 23 died, and recent attacks in force on U.S.-South Vietnamese installations.

(AP Wirephoto) Vermont Scientist May Be On Early Mission to Moon HOUSTON (AP) - Six scientist-astronauts, picked from a group of 1,500, begin training next month for a trip to the moon at least four years away. The six were chosen in a Manned Spacecraft Center decision to include scientists in the Apollo moon program. One of those selected, Dr. Frank C. Michel, 31, of Rice University, indicated Sunday applicants were put through exhaustive physical tests. "It was a different experience, all right," said the physicist. "It took over a week and they just tested everything five different ways." The six were identified Saturday after the Houston Chronicle used the names in a copyrighted story. Manned Spacecraft Center officials confirmed the Chronicle story but refused further details Sunday. The official announcement is scheduled for a news conference in Houston Tuesday. The six reportedly will be introduced then. Not on First Flight None of the six two physicists, two medical doctors, a geologist and an electronics engineer professor will be on the first flight which is expected four or five years hence. But after astronauts have proved the safety of the trip to the moon, a scientist will join later missions. The six men selected are: Dr. Michel, a physicist doing research and teaching in the space science field at Rice University. He is a native of La Crosse, Wis., and lives in Houston with his wife and son, Jeffrey. Dr. Owen K. Garriott, 34, an electronics engineer and instructor at Stanford University. He is a native of Enid, Okla., and the father of three. Dr. Edward G. Gibson, 28, a physicist at the Applied Research Laboratories, Newport Beach, Calif. He is a native of Buffalo, N.Y., and lives in San Clemente, Calif., with his wife, son and daughter. Dr. Duane E. Graveline, 34, a Free Press NATIONAL For a scientific mission to the moon, one of the most important people to take along is a scientist and the United States now has six young scientist-astronauts.

He was born in Oak Park, Dr. Graveline Had Wanted Invitation to Space Flight Three years ago Dr. Duane E. Graveline, a native of Newport and graduate of the University of Vermont, was asked if he would like to make a space flight. "Well, to be honest, I haven't been invited," the Air Force doctor replied. "But if I were darned tootin I would!" Dr. Graveline now has his invitation. He is one of six scientist-astronauts who will begin training next month for a trip to the moon. Class of '52 at UVM The 34-year-old doctor in the medical programs office at the Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, Tex., is a graduate of Newport, Vt., High School. He earned his B.S. degree at UVM in 1952 and received his M.D. degree from the College of Medicine at UVM in 1955. He and his wife, the former Carole Tollerton, also of Newport, have four children. Dr. Graveline entered the Air Force in 1955, interning at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. He later attended a primary course on aviation medicine at Brooks AFB, Tex.

At his post at a tracking station on Canton Island, about halfway between Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, Dr. Graveline was in radio communication for five minutes with Col. Glenn during his first two orbits. He recorded signals which gave Gol. Glenn's respiration, body temperature, and electrocardiagrams. After the flight Dr. Graveline flew to Burlington to visit with his wife and family. At time the soft-spoken doctor said, that, "I hope sometime to be able to live and work here Burlington is the best city I know of, and I've lived in plenty these past years." Newport Family Proud of New Space Scientist NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) - Dr, Duane E. Graveline, 34, a physician researcher chosen as one of six scientist - astronauts for the Apollo moon program, has deep roots in his native Newport near the Canadian border. His sister-in-law, Mrs. Norman Graveline, said Sunday: "We are very proud of him. He has loved the work. He's done a lot of research." His brother, Norman, one year younger, works with their father operating a Newport marina on Lake Memphremagog, a 20-mile long lake that crosses the Canadian border into Quebec. Their father has been hospitalized for what the family calls a minor ailment, and is due home next week. His family says he returns to Newport as often as possible to hunt and fish. Mrs. Norman Graveline said the family had little advance knowledge of the appointment. She said: "He had to keep a lot of it to himself. It wasn't to be released until Tuesday. But when he called this morning, he said his house was just full of newspapermen." Assembly Still Faces Major Tax Measures-Only Three Days Left MONTPELIER Democratic Gov. Hoff is haunted by and red ink as the 1965 Vermont General Assembly heads solution at midnight Wednesday. With nnlv thrpp rlavs Ipft in its official life, the Legislature still must put the final touches on record general fund and highway budgets including passage of new taxes needed to pay the cost of running state government for the next two years. In recent weeks, Hoff has become more concerned that the Legislature may not pass the additional taxes needed to finance the record $95 million-plus general fund budget. Over the weekend, the governor said he was concerned over reports the solid bloc of House conservative Republicans may use delaying tactics including calls for roll call votes on all issues in an effort to bog down legislative machinery. Hoff originally submitted a $93.9 million general fund budget to the Legislature, but he estimated last Friday that the final price tag for legislation and programs approved by the General Assembly will come to $95.7 million. That means, the governor said in a special message, the Legislature will have to raise an additional $5.4 million through new and increased taxes. South Vietnamese Overrun Meeting 01 Viet Cong SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) South Vietnamese troops killed seven Viet Cong provincial and local officials Sunday in a lightning raid on a Mekong delta village 35 miles south of Saigon, U.S. military informants reported. They called it the biggest single bag of Viet Cong officials in the war. The Red guerrillas struck back Monday with a mortar barrage on an airfield and district headquarters at Nha Trang, an old China Sea resort town 200 miles northeast of Saigon. U.S. spokesmen said the half-hour barrage had wounded six South Vietnamese soldiers, destroyed or heavily damaged a Vietnamese helicopter, and damaged a U.S. Air Force C123 transport plane. No U.S. casualties were reported. In the Mekong raid, government forces were flown in by U.S. helicopters and supported by U.S. Air Force and Navy planes, the American informants said. ' They reported that 31 Viet Cong, including the seven officials, were- slain and 29 taken prisoner. South Vietnamese officers expressed the belief the Viet Cong guerrillas carried off another 50 dead in their withdrawal from Tan Hicp village. The U.S. informants said that the South Vietnamese troops also destroyed, with the help of the U.S. warplanes, a Viet Cong hospital in the Tan Hiep area. L".

(AP Wirephoto) Burlington fr Pnt CAPITOL lUfiUU So far, the House Ways and Means Committee has proposed a 2-cent increase in the cigarette tax and changes in the state income tax laws as new revenue measures. The 2-cent hike in the cigarette tax will yield an estimated $1.7 million in the next two years and a change in the income tax law governing filing of returns by couples will add another $1.5 or $2 million over the biennium. The governor has urged an increase in the tax on gross receipts of telephone companies to add another $900,000 to the general fund over the next two years. Those three major taxes would still leave the state short of the extra $5.4 million Hoff says is needed and there is no assurance that those three tax measures or any others will be passed. The tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee has recommended a 1-cent increase in the gasoline tax to raise an extra $3.2 million over the next two years to help pay for the record $60 million highway budget. Hoff had proposed $16.5 million in highway bonding to help pay for road construction, but the House voted to slice that back to $13.2 million which means the 1-cent-a-gallon hike in the gas tax will be needed. The heart of the general fund budget is the massive omnibus appropriations bill. The House version of that bill contains a $90.8 million price tag, while the Senate version of the bill calls for $92.1 million in spending. Religious Leaders Pray For U.Ns Peace Quest SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Seven international leaders of religious faiths with more than two billion . members joined prayerful hands under one roof Sunday in support of the United Nations quest for world peace. Pope Paul VI sent his blessing from Rome. They were conveyed by a Syrian archbishop to the Cow Palace convocation for Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Moslems and Eastern Greek Orthodox Christians. A United States Negro bishop of the Methodist Church spoke for the Protestants. A rabbi from London spoke for the Jews. Secretary General U Thant represented the United Nations whose delegates from 114 nations met Friday and Saturday to commemorate birth of the U.N. in San Francisco 20 years ago. "The ideological intolerance of today is comparable to the religious intolerance which pre i 1 J J 4 f (UL A.

There are still some reapportionment matters to be settled. The House must still take final action on the bill that sets up a special legislative election this autumn, and then the measure will have to be approved by the Senate to become law. The Legislature still has hopes for a last - minute reprieve from a Supreme Court justice in response to the resolution that asks the U.S. Supreme Court to lift the July 1 deadline for dissolution of the Legislature. Hoff has called the resolution an "exercise in futility" and sees little prospect the "Sui-' cide Legislature" will be permitted to carry on beyond midnight Wednesday. Thus, with only three working days left, the Legislature will attempt to take action on scores of measures still pendingincluding many key educational measures that require Senate action. After months of low gear movement, t h e Legislature stepped up its pace last week. For instance, the Senate acted on 23 measures Friday more than it had done in an entire week during the early days of the session. But, the odds are that many measures major ones and minor ones alike will die for lack of action when the historic session of the 1965 Vermont General Assembly comes to an end at midnight Wednesday. vailed not so long ago," U Thant told the huge gathering. "We have had wars of religion, when men killed each other for no other reason than that they belonged to different religions. Today, while perfect religious tolerance may not prevail, we are generally willing to concede that each one of us should be free to seek his spiritual goal in his own way. "Perhaps we may also be abU1 to develop over the years a similar approach to the goal of peace and concede that the goal is more important than the means." Through the Most Rev. Martin J. O'Connor, titular archbishop of Laodicea in Syria, Pope Paul VI said: "How truly right and proper it is that a religious convocation for peace has been included among the ceremonies commemorative of the signing of the United Nations charter 20 years ago." 1 I ' r 1
