Red China split with Russia over Lindley, loser in tor race, third. Fourth highest vote total went to John K. Snyder for state treasurer. Lowest vote totals among Democrats were those o f George H. Prime and G. Remy Bierly, candidates for Appellate Court seats; This is natural, since thousands of voters fail to complete the state ticket ballot. More than ll,0Q0 who voted for president failed to vote for U.S. senator, and 4,000 others who voted for senator did not register a choice for governor. Going down the ballot, 18,000 voted no lower than governor, 5,000 more were lost after lieutenant governor, 9,000 between auditor, and treasurer, and 10,000 more by the time the bottom of the ballot was reached. Oh the Republican side, however, Ristine was the lowest vote-getter, with Beasley next lowest and Goldwater third from the bottom. After Branigin's ticket-leading plurality of 263,437 over Ristine, and Johnson's 259,730 plurality over Goldwater, -the only other victory margin by more than 200,000 votes was Wilson's 217,- 5G Oedge over Beaslery. Pluralities on the remainder of the ticket ranged from Bottorff's 196,841-vote edge over Powell down to New's 174,356 margin over Snyder.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday from the McMuilan-Rude Funeral Home with Rev. W. O. Williams officiating and burial will be in St. Paul Cemetery.

Pravda saidRussia is ready to talk over its differences with ! other nations and is willing to adopt a position of flexibility." "We attach great importance to the- development of business links and normal relations with the main capitalist states, including the United States where the recent elections strengthened the positions of the more moderate circles in the ruling camp," Pravda said. There was no sign that China was ready to ease its militant anti-Western policy. Diplomatic observers said the Soviet foreign policy statement paralleled declarations made in the past month by the new rulers of the Kremlin following the ouster of Khrushchev. Observers said the statement appeared to steer a middle course between preserving the status quo in relations with the West and adopting an uncompromising line toward national revolutionary movements, which- Red China supports. Western observers said it was notable that there was no hardening of policy toward the West despite Chou's presence in Moscow. Although Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin and Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev agreed to the Peking talks, diplomatic sources in Moscow said there was little chance of Russia and China solving all their differences immediately. However, the Russians have agreed to postpone a meeting of 26 Communist parties which Khrushchev had called for next month, apparently to lay the groundwork for reading Red China out of the world Communist movement. Communist China was bitterly opposed to the meeting. Russia's Communist allies in Europe also had been dragging their feet on the plan. Numerous foreign Communist officials had come to Moscow in connection with the 47th anniversary Nov. 7 of the Russian revolution. By this morning Chou was the only one still in Moscow. Diplomats said he and Bre(Continued on Page 6) REWARD OFFERED MUNCIE, Ind.

Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the scientists said the U.S. would be able to. get a nuclear rocket off the ground within the next 10 years for an additional $1 billion. They predicted routine manned flights to the • moon were 'possible 'before 1975. In addition, • they - said, unmanned exploratory flighty to other planets by' atomic rockets would be feasible by the middle of the next decade. Present U.S. space plans call for the Apollo project to put two men on the moon by 1970. The Apollo space capsule is to be launched by mean's of chemically-powered rockets. All rockets now used to drive. spacecraft away from earth are powered by chemical fuels. But experts have long known that the more extended missions of the future will re- uire far 'greater energy — the energy, for example, which is released by.splitting atoms. Until recently, the effort to harness the atom to space exploration had, been discouraging. Through the fiscal year ended last June 30, NASA and the AEC had spent $584.5 million without reaping anything but setbacks. But this expenditure was not in vain. Learning from their failures, scientists this fall were able to stage four successful tests in a row which proved they were on the right track. Dr. Harold B. Finger, who heads the joint N.A.S.A-Atomic Energy Commission project, told reporters that the tests, conducted in September and October, constituted "a very major step forward in rocketry!" U.S., Germany Open Talks on Nuclear Fleet By STEWART HENSLEY United Press International WASHINGTON (.UPI)—Undersecretary of State George W Ball was flying to Germany today for strategy talks involving the controversial American plan for a NATO nuclear fleet. He will have a lengthy conference Monday with German Chancellor Lu dwi g Erhard,. whose government has suddenly decided to stop . pressing for creation of the proposed Multilateral Nuclear Force (MLF) by the end of this year. Ball, i h e administration's workhorse on this project, and, Secretary of State Dean Rusk were said to be confident that the MLF has suffered only a delay and not a defeat as a result of the Bonn.Government's decision. Plans call for Ball to attend sessions in Berlin today and Saturday of the German-American Council, an organization of influential private citizens interested in closer ties between the two countries, before "oing to Bonn to meet Erhard. Accepts Decision The Johnson administration was inclined to accept Bonn's assertion that its decision to relay participation in MLF was not due primarily to the "increasing hostility of French President Charles de Gaulle to the plan. The State Department publicly ascribed the German decision to a desire to wait and take a look at a revised MLF proposal - being worked out by Britain. This will be ready next month. President Johnson and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson are expected to discuss the revised plan when they confer at the White House Dec. 7-8. Diplomatic sources said that the major reason for Germany's decision on MLF stemmed principally from Erhard's desire to ease -domestic criticism of his regime on this front. The German leader also must deal soon with the politically explosive necessity to lower German grain prices to bring them into line with those of other, European Common Market countries, particularly France. No .Deal Made U.S. officials have been assured by the Germans that no "deal" was made between De Gaulle and former German Chancellor K o n r a d Adenauer during their Paris meeting earlier this week for a German delay on MLF in return for easing of French pressure on the grain issue. De Gaulle has given Germany until mid-December to bring its grain prices into line or face a suspension of common market plans to try to :"gotiate reciprocal tariff reductions with the rest of the world. Whatever the reason for the German decision, Britain's desire to rejigger the MLF gave Bonn an excuse to announce delayed action on the project and take some political prei (Continued from pig* i) Hall of Fame Honors Past Tipton Greats Visitors to Tipton High School seeking basketball tickets tonight, or inspecting the school at any time in the future., are invited to cast their eyes just above the trophy case adjacent to the Principal's office in the main corridor.

But, Capitol said, Baker subsequently used his influence to have Capitol machines ousted from the plant. The contract later was given to Baker's own vending firm, Serve-U orp. Capitol's suit triggered a politically explosive inquiry by the Senate Rules Committee into Baker's outside business activities while a $19,600-a-ycar Senate employe. The committee plans to resume hearings Dec. 1. Carliner denied that Capitol had agreed to a $30,000 settlement and that the agreement had been kept secret until after the Nov. 3 elections. Newsweek magazine reported t his a few- days ago. Baker also subsequently denied it. Carliner said the dollar amount of a settlement was still under discussion. He indicated he felt the final figure would be more than $30,000.
