(UPI)— When his interpreter groped for the right word, the Russian radiologist stepped over the language barrier and helpfully whispered "serum" — in clear English. When someone asked • whether his nation would send more women into space, the So- lieved to be remnants of the v f Physiologist stepped over, a bi" plane p religious . barrier and replied ",. , . with a sigh, "God knows what The turbo-prop aircraft has not already flown in space plunged from tta darkened sky | ships> s0 why not another wom . an?" And when the last "korabl" had been converted to "spaceship" the Soviet troika of O.G. Gazenko, V.V. Antipov and M.M. Kasenov had passed the word: Their cosmonaut's victories were won despite attacks of illusions, upset stomachs and "gray fog before their eyes." The message, guided by the crafty hand of baldish physiologist Gazenko, seemed at times to be a sly dig at the U.S. space program, whose astronauts, rarely make a miscue while flying two years or more behind the Russian pace. Immune To Barbs But whatever <the barbs, the American - dominated delegation to the Third International Symposium on Bioastronautics and the Exploration o f Sgace seemed immune Tuesday. Instead, they listened patiently to the talks and then treated Gazenko, the witty radiologist Antipov, and the quiet, soft- spoken science-worker Kasenov to a typically overcrowded U.S. cocktail party, complete with elderly autograph hounds in evening dress. The trio, using the language gap to advantage, bore it all well enough, and planned to stick around today to hear Americans discuss ideas on putting military spaceships in orbit around earth. The Russians, for their part, were candid if cautious in their proferred information. Entertaining Quips But if their official presentations appeared somewhat old- hat, their sideline quips at least kept the audience entertained. There was Antipov's comment, inserted midway through a deep and dry dissertation of fruitflies shipped into space: "While dogs (the first live Soviet experiments) paved the way, we feel in the Soviet Union that man really got into space on the wings of fruit- flies.'' Gazenko, in the midst of a (Continued on page 6) shortly after 6:55 p.m. local time, crashed into the Atlantic and exploded. The explosion could be seen clearly four miles away. The navy said the plane disappeared from radar screens at exactly 6:55 p.m. during the final phase of an instrument landing known as Ground Control Approach (GCA). Radar landings are standard operating procedure here at night and in bad weather. The patrol plane was returning from a six-hour training mission in the Argentia area. The Navy said it was not armed with weapons normally carried on anti-submarine assignment. The plane and its crew were attached to a small detachment of anti-submarine Orions that belong to the. Navy's VP-45 squadron which has its headquarters at Jacksonville, Fla. There are about six Orions based here that fly daily patrols over the North Atlantic. There was no speculation about what had caused the crash. There was no voice re- WEATHER MUtly cloudy and colder today with occasional rain late this afternoon.

Burglars Hit Windfall Hard A wave of burglaries netted more than $500 in cash and merchandise . in Windfall last night. Burglars peeled a safe at Bolinger Bros, and broke into Bryan's' I.G.A. and Horner's Five and Ten Store. Sheriff Verl Grimme, who investigated the thefts, said that $250 was taken from tyie Bolinger safe. One hundred 1 dollars was taken from the cash drawers at the dime store, plus an unidentified amount of merchandise. Loss from the grocery store was reported to be $150. Three Fined Three persons were fined in lustice of the Peace Court yesterday. Joseph D. Caylor, 236 S. West St., paid '$22/75 for speeding and coon-hunter Louis Debethune, RR 3, Elwood paid $31.75 for the second charge against him in connection with his Oct. 29 arrest for hunting without a license. An Indiana polis man, Charles Durbin, 51, finally made his appearance to pay an $18.75 penalty for driving without an operator's license on charges filed last August. Murder Case Venued Here Arraignment for accused murderer Stanley R. Vaughan has been set for Dec. 1, in action taken by the State yesterday. Vaughan is accused of first degree murder for the death of an elderly Frankfort woman during a burglary last March. The case was transferred from Clinton County to Tipton County on a change of venue. Pearl Hussey Rites Friday '!. Pearl (Bill) Hussey, 59, j Elwood route 4, died in Tipton County Hospital at-3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Hospital, I.U. and Church Share In Local Man's Gifts A man who credits his success in life to his early church training, the university which gave him his higher education and the community which gave him his opportunity, has expressed his appreciation for these things with a donation of $190,316.97 divided among them. George Spencer, 69, of 206 North Conde, established a Trust in that amount with the Citizens National Bank of Tipton as Trustee, in which the beneficiaries are the Kempton Methodist Church, the Indiana University Foundation and the Tipton Community Hospital. In memory of his parents. Johnson and Aides Meet on U.N. Budget By WILLIAM J. EATON United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson called in his top diplomatic advisers today to plan U.S. strategy for a fast- approaching crisis with the Soviet! Union over United Na­ trons financing. The future of the world organization may be at stake in the moneybag showdown between i the two great powers over Russia's refusal "to pay more than $54 million in past due assessments for U.N. peacekeeping forces in the Congo and iMiddle East. ' • . A clash is expected Dec. 1 at the opening of the 201t .U.N. General Assembly in New York City unless the United States or Russia backs down on the issue. "We're on a collision course," said' one State Department official. Johnson arranged a conference with Secretary of State Dean Rusk, U.N. Ambassador Adlai Stevenson and Assistant Secretary of State Harlan Cleveland to discuss the financing deadlock and other U.N. matters. The conference was scheduled for 1 p.m. EST. There were indications the Chief Executive would reaffirm the nation's hard line and demand payment of the Soviet share or move to deprive the Russians of a vote in the U.N. Assembly. 1 American officials said they believed the U.S. position would be supported on a showdown vote in the assembly, even though many nations" trying to preserve neutrality in the East- West conflict probably would abstain. Under a provision of the U.N. charter, Russia could lose its assembly vote for being two years behind in paying assessments. U.S. sources said, however, they doubted Russia would allow this to happen. Branigin Forming Statehouse Staff By HORTENSE MYERS United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Gov.- elect Roger D. Branigin and a skeleton staff of seven aides knuckled down today to the task of shaping a state administration to take over from retiring Governor Welsh's next Jan. 11. Branigin and his associates operated from three downtown hotels, ignoring an offer of space in the Statehouse or State Office Building,: and there were indications some announcements about the new chief executive's future plans may be forthcoming later this week. Branigin has expressed an intent to be slow about making appointive changes and has turned some attention already toward the 1965-67 budget. I Branigin has been provided! with available information on the proposed budget, which was prepared under the direction of, outgoing Gov.- Matthew E. j Welsh and his staff. The Indiana i Budget Committee completed work on the biennial budget but J has not yet made public the results. Unofficially, the total spending program, including both general and dedicated iunds, is understood to be in the neighborhood of $1.75 billion. Although great hunks of this are beyond gubernatorial power to change, Branigin has said he intends to "take another look" to see if any economics can be effected. Gordon St. Angelo, Fred Garver? Richard Vandivier, and Charles Miller, plus three clerical workers, remain with-Branigin from the big pre-election campaign staff which helped him achieve the highest elective office in the state. If they know what the future has for them, employment-wise, they are not saying. Even St. Angelo, Huntingburg, the 8th District Democratic chairman who is Branigin's chief assistant, will not confirm or deny that he may become the next Democratic state chairman, suc- downtown office building, later. (Continued on page 6) memory Fred and Delia Spencer, who were- members of the Kempton Methodist Church, and who raised George and h i s seven brothers and listers while operating a grocery store in that community, Mr. Spencer donated $-17,579.24 and a check in that amount was turned over to church officials by the Citizens Bank last Saturday. Scholarships The Tipton Community Hospital, which Spencer served as a Trustee, receives $76,126.79 and the Indiana University Foundation receives $5G,610.94 from which the interest is to be used for scholarship funds with special consideration to be given graduates of Titpon County high schools who are qualified and want to further their study in the I.U. School of Business Administration. Mr. Spencer feels deeply that the early principles which he acquired as a youthful member of the Kempton Methodist Church, enabled him to follow the path which led through college and to the eventual General Managership of the Oakes Manufacturing Company. He therefore wants to contribute to the perpetuation of that church so future generations may share in its benefits. Stresses Education He credits his graduation from Indiana University as an Economics Major with.the education that enabled him to progress through various capacities as sales manager afld a company officer of the Oakes. His endowment to I.U. is to help other deserving students get the college education he believes is so necessary in today's competitive world. Close to his heart is the Tipton Community _ Hospital. He cites figures to "show the number of bed patients treated annually, and the crowding of emergency beds due to the enforced stay of patients whose health is excellent and do not require constant nursing care but who cannot be taken home because of bone injuries which have not yet healed. He envisions expansion of - the hospital to the south and west and hopes that others in the county in a position to do so, will also make bequests to the hospital for this purpose. "Suggestions To Others In fact, it was only in the hope that his own donation would bring to mind the e x p a n sion need of the hospital to others, that George Spencer agreed to the publicizing of his contribution. And this- money was donated in the memory of his wife, Marie Gunn Spencer who died January 18 of this year. He was.born in the Kempton area, just across the line in Clinton County, March 22, 1895. He spent his entire boyhood in the Kempton Community, graduating from Kempton High School in 1913 and from Indiana University in 1917. In the family of eight children, six graduated from I. U. and two from Ball State and of the latter two, his one sister went on to I.U. for her Masters Degree. Following college he served as a Lieutenant in Artillery in World War I, an instructor at • Officers Training School in Camp Taylor. Supt. Of Schools After the war he was a principal for two years at Goldsmith and one year at Kempton, then serving as County Superintendent of Schools in 1821-23 and as Assistant State Superintendent pf Schools from 1924 partway through .1926 when, July 1 of that year he joined the , Oakes .
