Secretary General Thant told newsmen there was a strong possibility that the assembly would recess for at least 24 hours soon after its opening. The decision Was to be made this morning after the views of various regional groups in t h e world parliament were made known. either Thant nor U. S. Ambassador Adlai E.

(UPI) —Indiana's white-on-green 1965 motor vehicle license plates, on sale Jan. 2, will glow in the dark. Rex Lennis, director of industries at Indiana State Prison here where the plates are manufactured, said the lettering and numerals have been treated so they shine brightly when light is cast on them at night. This year, the State Bureau of Motor Vehicles experimented with reflectorized plates and found they worked well. The plates for six counties were . treated with luminous paint. The 1965 plates will be. ismi-: lar to those of this year, except for the color. Number sizes and lettering style are the same. The word "Indiana" will be on the bottom of the plate and the year "1S65" at the top, the reverse of this year's order. Permits Granted a make-or-break point today. The recess action might come at any time after the opening of the session but Thant thought it more, likely after the election of Alex Quaison-Sackey of Ghana, unopposed for the assembly presidency. The election would be held on a "no objection" basis, - without the formality of a vate. The issue, behind the dramatic situation was Russia's refusal to pay airy part of the S52.6 million it owes'for peacekeeping operations in the Congo and the Middle East. Russia contends it was assessed illegally' by the assembly, instead of the Security Council, where there is a Soviet veto. Article 19 of the U. N. charter provides that any country ih arrears for the .equivalent #1 two years' assessments shall lose its vote. The United States has insisted that Article 19 be applied against Russia and sev en other delinquents the first time the assembly is called on to vote. The assembly, which normally meets _in September, was postponed originally until Nov. 10. Then a second three-week postponement was granted to afford more time to seek a compromise on the confrontation with Russia. Despite the drama of the last- minute talks, a crisis atmosphere was notably lacking among the principal diplomats involved in the situation. The Tipton County Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals .granted a total of nine permits during the month of November. The estimated, value of the improvements facilitated by the permits was $80,200. Those receiving permits were: Ed Murphy, James R. McNew, Houston Stahl and Richard E. Young, residences; Fertich Cassell and Allen Harper, placements of trailers; Tebco Fertilizer, building addition; Noble Young, placement of a storage building; and Schrock, Division oLTuloma Gas Products, distribution of anhydrous and liquid fertilizer.
