"By locating the new main close to the south curb," Stemm •explained, "it will be possible to keep the street open to traffic all during construction.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Grissom Wants Teammates To Get Equal Press Recognition By JOSEPH L. MYLER BALTIMORE (UPI) — Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom . is "bothered." The 150-pound Force major is slated early next year to pilot the first manned flight of America's two-seater Gemini spacecraft. Beside him as co-pilot, if present plans hold, will be Lt. : Cmdr. John W. Young, a 34%. year-old Navy flier. v- .1 For the United States it will be an historic event, the beginning of a new chapter in space­ flight leading up to the Apollo project to put men .on the moon. Wednesday at the Martin Co. here Grissom and Young inspected the Titan-2 rocket which was- built' to boost them into orbit. They found it good. As Grissom said, "Titan is 'go'." Program Progressing Officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) assured reporters at the inspection that the Gemini program is moving along fast and everything looks fine for a successful iickoff in the early months of 1965. So why is Gus Grissom "bothered"? Any spaceflight is, of course, a dangerous undertaking. But Gus is used to danger, and it was obvious that he has complete confidence in his spacecraft and rocket. Brissom and Young are what is known as the "prime" crew. Training with them as a Walter M. Schirra Jr. Thomas P. Stafford. If anything happens to Gus and John between now and next February ^^r-^A A ;J °r March, Wally and Tom will 38-year-old Air, be ready to take ^ p , aces One crew is as fit and ready as the other. They work together as a four-man team. But everywhere they go, Gus and John -get the spotlight while Wally and Tom "stand back" and look on. ..Explains Why This strikes Gus Grissom as unfair, and it explains why he "bothered." If there is competition among America's astro- cauts, it bears little resemblance to another sort of competition, which becomes manifest' in a different walk of life every four years when politicians fight for the right to pilot a nation. So at a news conference yesterday, Gus Grissom mildly chided the reporters and the photographers for paying more attention to him and Young than to Schirra and Stafford. This bothers him, he said. The "four of us are a. team," he said, and nobody can tell what will' happen between now and Gemini liftoff time next year. "Wally and Tom," Gus said, "may be the ones to fly this booster, not John and I." Schirra and Stafford, who were present at the conference, didn't say anything. But they smiled their thanks at the little fellow who was being bothered Mishap Causes $350 Damage ' A collision at the corner of an( j!

Goldwater drew closer to. the with com-' munism a prime issue in their presidential election campaign race. . ' Johnson said he had received a message from Soviet Premier Alexei Kbsygin saying the Russians want peace. The Chief Executive described it as "a heartening response." He added that "we must not underestimate the danger of communism — but neither should we estimate the clear power is unleashed and we do not move toward peace." Goldwater, the GOP nominee, was on record with a demand for the Democratic candidates to speak out against a Communist, party-'attempt to "smash Goldwaterism." The Arizona senator cited the suote from a copy of the Communist party newspaper "The Worker" and said that "I haven't heard a Democratic candidate yet say he doesn't want the Communist party working for him." To H*ad East . Johnson's . remarks • were made in fne prepared text of a speech today in Salt Lake City, Mairs of Pasadena, .Calif., -and!where he spoke after campaign- Kathy Kuraer of Arlington, Va: ling Wednesday in Southern Cal­ ifornia. Later today the Presi-' dent was to head east, stopping in Wichita, Kan., before -going to, Philadelphia for a speech tonight. Saying that Kosygin's message was in reply to one. from the White House, Johnson' declared in- the Salt Lake City speech that forces of change were at work in the Soviet'Un- ion. He said America must work "to guide the inevitable changes that lie ahead." He called for "moral responsibility" to shape these changes and prevent the world from moving "recklessly toward eternal damnation." Goldwater made his -comments on communism Wednes-^ day in Oshkosh, Wis., a com-* munity in the home ground of the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy. He also criticized the nation's press, accusing them of echoing the Communist line carried in the-Worker. No Accusations In referring to the Communists, Goldwater said he was j sons not accusing any Democrat of > and being one. But, he said, "I am getting a little sick and tired of their not denouncing this party r ^the Communist group—not denouncing their backing...I don't want any . Communist working or voting for me in this coun­ try." Today the GOP nominee set out on a whistle-stop tour from Harrisburg, iPa., to Pittsburgh. In remarks prepared for delivery at Lewistown he said he was in favor of Social Security and.accused Johnson of killin, a bill to increase benefits in the last Congress. -Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, taking his Democratic vice presidential campaign to New York City for the second time this week, characterized the Republican candidates as "jingoes and loud-mouthed anti-communists who would risk nuclear annihilation." Following his appearance in New York Humphrey planned to fly to Topeka, Kan., before winding up his campaign for the night in Denver. Charges Hate Fight •Last night af a rally in Fairfax, Va., a suburb of Washington, Humphrey charged the GOP had turned the campaign into, a. hate fight run by per- with "puny little minds dirty little souls."

By HORTENSE MYERS United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Governor Welsh and Indiana Correction Commissioner Arthur Campbell said today that closing the Indiana Girls' School, in line with the recommendations of a grand jury, would be "impractical." A Marion County grand jury which began an investigation of the school following a Sept. 10 riot said Wednesday it should be closed until it can be reorganized as ."an institution for rehabilitation... not a school for depravity." . The jury's report, attacking the administration of the school, said that most of the girls sentenced to the school "are engagr ing in homosexual activity." . The jury urged that the school be closed "until its operation and management is completely revised to accomplish the valid purposes for which it was created. "We respectfully recommend to the judges of the various courts of this state exercising juvenile jurisdiction that they make no further commitments to this institution," the jury said. After reading the jury's report, Welsh said the suggestion that the school be closed "is utterly impractical, destructive of good order and, beyond question, of no benefit to these, troubled girls or society in general. "This administration will continue, to do its best to help these young girls—whatever personal problems they may have, whatever act caused them to be sent from their homes—with the limited resources granted by' the General Assembly," Welsh said. Campbell said, "There are more than 175 girls there now and we have no place to put them. I do not see closing the school as a possibility." Regarding the charges of homosexual activities, Campbell said, "We haven't found any staff member yet who ever observed such acts." (Continued on page 8) VOTE *" ; Johnson Eyes Price of Steel LOS ANGELES (UPI)—President Johnson is keeping a close eye on the steel price situation. He was understood Wednesday to feel that it would be very difficult now to justify further increases in steel prices. Wall Street reaction to the report of Johnson's interest was swift: U.S. Steel's stock.price plunged $2.13 and prices of most other big steel producers also dipped, but not as sharply. Johnson was said to share the appraisal indicated in Fortune magazine for November that the country's economy now has ample momentum to sustain, its advance until at least mid-1965. But it was indicated that the President's economic advisers suggest that further action by that time may be necessary. Such action would include a revision of excise tax rates, due to expire June '30. Arguments submitted against a steel price, boost now include: —Steel industry profits for the first nine months are 29 per cent above those for the same period last year. —Steel imports have been increasing, from about 2 million tons yearly to - the current 5 million tons, and if present import trends continue might rise to 7 million tons by 1965. Steer exports, at the same time, have declined. This import increase and export decrease spelled a loss of about 1 billion yearly in for%ign exchange, which in turn affected the balance of payments position. President Johnson was said to feel that the steel industry now is able to finance further plant modernization and thus make itself more-competitive in the world market placed Johnson 'Was- 1 «aid to be watching i) particularly preliminary moves to revise.the union wage contract subject, to-modification by-June of 1965. 1-
