INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 52- TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1944 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK By HORTENSE MYERS United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Members of the 1965 Indiana Legislature wound up their three-day pre-legislative conference today with a fair idea of at least some of the headaches they will face when they officially convene next month. Today's final session featured a parade of state agency, and department heads with their » recommendations for new legislation and, in all likelihood, a pitch for more money. Money occupied a large share REATENS VIET NAM AID Barry Keeps Leading Role Among GOP By WILLIAM THEIS United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen. Barry M. Goldwater apparently intends to play a far more prominent role than many Republicans expected in shaping the future course of the GOP. The defeated Republican presidential candidate said Wednesday he would confer next Wednesday in New York City with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Looking tanned and rested after a Caribbean vacation, the Arizona senator held forth on a wide variety of political topics in an interview at his Capitol Hill office. His comments belied the reports of other Repub- of the spotlight Wednesday wiihjhcans who had expected him the presentation of the budget prepared by the administration of outgoing Governor Welsh and with a plea from presidents of the four state-supported colleges and universities for rcstor- to fade into the background after his disastrous defeat Nov. 3.

But he had ennium. Branigin said j plenty of advice to offer the day afternoon following a conference with' Welsh that he does not intend to make changes in the $1.7 billion, budget "without a lot of consideration." He said he felt the budget prepared by the administration of his fellow-Democrat was "complex and heavy" and deserved "a lot of consideration" before any changes were made. Branigin has said several times he expects to reduce state spending but has not specified any budget items he definitely plans to cut. The first criticism of the proposed budget came Wednesday from the college and university presidents who said a $3G million cut in construction money they sought will "stymie" them unless a bonding authority" law is enacted. Dr. Frederick Hovde, Purdue University president, said the Budget Agency's action in cutting the S5S million joint construction proposals of Purdue, Indiana, Ball State and Indiana State to $20 million "simply stymies us." ; "We can't 'do the job on this amount," Hovde said. He said, however, that the schools will, be able to manage if the legislature enacts a proposal giving them authority to issue construction bonds for academic buildings. He noted that a similar measure was defeated in 1963. Much of Wednesday afternoon's session was devoted to hearing reports on the work of various study committees established by the 1963 Legislature or by the Legislative Advisory (Continued on Page 6) governors: . • . "I'd say they should put down the positions of the Republican eonventidn — and their own— and see where we disagree, the extent of that disagreement, and then go on from there. "I'll swear that, there were only two places of disagreement —on the question of condemning extremism, and that of using stronger language in the civil rights plank. .. "I'd propose that they submit their suggestions to the national committee to be acted on— the words they would like to see set forth on extremism and civil rights." Both issues — and that of the reaffirmation of presidential control over nuclear weapons— were central to the moderate- conservative clash at last July's GOP convention in San Francisco. Beat Down Attempt The Goldwater forces beat down all attempts to write language in the Republican platform explicitly condemning extremism and strengthening the civil rights plank to pledge "enforcement" of the law by the President. Goldwater said he thought it would be fine for the GOP governors to have a broader policy role in the party—"if it doesn't mean curtailment of their primary role in their own states— and the primary role of any governor is to deliver .his state for his party." . "I happen to believe that we have to look to the elected members of Congress as our leaders," the senator said.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Girls Spite Neighbor With "Phoney' Calls VALPARAISO, Ind. (UPI)— Two 10-year-old girls have admitted making phone calls responsible for delivery of flowers and groceries and calls by a taxicab and television repair ; man to the home of Miss Marjorie Cole. Police Chief Dale- Gott reported Wednesday that the girls were traced through the use of a tape recording made of a call to an answering service. •Miss Cole received groceries and flowers she did not order. A cab and an appliance repair man also showed up mysteriously. A furniture store got an order for a white or red couch. And a beauty parlor operator said a child made an appointment for Miss Cole to have her hair done. Mrs. Nancy Ferguson, who operates an answering service, recorded one of the phone calls and gave the tape to police. They took the tape to elementary schools and played it for teachers. None of the teachers recognized the voices. However, Gott said, when the tape was played at one school two young girls became frightened and confessed to their teacher they had ordered the merchandise and services and also made several calls to Miss Cole's home "because we didn't like her." * • WEATHER Cloudy with mixed snow and rain tcday and tonight.

New Rioting Reported At Girls School INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) Screaming inmates smashed 12 windows and broke down doors in a semi-honor cottage at the Indiana Girls School Wednesday night and three of them escaped. . The latest disturbance at the institution where a riot in September precipitated a two- pronged investigation was blamed on refusal of officials to permit a group of girls to talk to members of the State Parole. Board. The board met at the school Tuesday and Wednesday. Authorities said it required about two hours to bring the disturbance under control. Police were not called. Two of the three' girls who escaped were recaptured shortly afterward. The third,- Janice Hamilton, 18, Gary, remained at large this morning. Donald Phillip, assistant commissioner of the State Correction Department, said several girls suffered minor the outbreak. He said nine girls were singled out as ringleaders and were placed in a detention center. The trouble occurred in Cottage 7 where about 25. girls were housed. A few windows were broken in other cottages before the disturbance was quelled. The September riot, which caused thousands of dollars in damages, led to a grand jury investigation in Marion County and a report recommending the institution be closed. It also led to an investigation by a special committee created by Governor Welsh which received a report recommending many changes'in operation of the school. Mrs. '7reda Lyda, superin tendent at the time of the riot later resigned.

(TRIBUNR Phett-lngravlnf) President Has Skin Removed From One Hand i- WASHINGTON (UPI)--President Johnson today underwent surgery to have a thickening of the skin removed from the back of his right hand. It was described by the White House as a s.mall hyperkeratosis. { . Press Secretary George E. •fieedy said the operation^ was performed in the White House with local anesthetic. He said it would not interfere with the President's duties in the slightest. This included a speech this morning at Georgetown University here. Reedy said he was informed by medical advisers that the thickening of the skin was caused by overexposure to the sun. He said there was no malignancy. Reedy described the opera tion as a "very small thing.' Johnson went ahead with the Georgetown appearance with a dressing on his hand. A reporter asked Reedy if Johnson might be "laid up" at all by the operation. Reedy replied, "Not in the slightest." The President's right hand became calloused and nicked by enthusiastic hand shaking during the presidential campaign. Reedy was asked whether that might have caused—or contributed to—the ailment. Reedy replied that he was advised that the thickening was caused by exposure to the sun. He said he understood that the thickening had "been forming for some time."

MOSCOW (UPI) — Kremlin leader Leonid I. Brezhnev accused the United States today oi "impcrialististic" air strikes against Communist North Viet Nam and warned that Russia was prepared to "give aid" to the Hanoi regime. In a stinging attack on American actions in Viet,Nam, Cuba and the Congo, Brezhnev charged that "U.S. planes and ships strafed North Viet Nam." "Let the imperialists beware of playing with fire." the Soviet Communist party leader said. "The Soviet Union cannot remain indifferent to the fate of a sister socialist country and is prepared to render the noc- ess.lry assistance to her." He spoke at a "'friendship rally" in honor of visiting Czech President Antonin Novotny. North Viet Nam charged Wednesday that 12 U.S. warplanes, including four jets, had strafed and bombed five North Vietnamese villages in the northern section oi the demilitarized zone between South and North Vict Nam.

Baker Refuses Answers On Democratic Kickbacks By ARNOLD B. SAW IS LA K United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — A vhisperof international intrigue las crept into the Senate's long- •unning Bobby Baker investiga- ion. A host of' new allegations, one of which involved a German mystery woman, was -aised Wednesday during the Senate Rules Committee's unproductive session with Baker. Sen. Carl T. Curtis, R-Neb., asked Baker a series of questions which seemed linked to testimony given before the committee in closed session earlier his week by insurance agent Don B. Reynolds, a onetime Baker associate and a key witness in the current invest!-.' gation. Curtis asked Baker if German beauty Mrs. Ellen Rometsch, whose name has cropped up repeatedly in the case, had ever told him she was an employe of the Communist East German government Baker refused to answer that question just as he refused to answer others Curtis posed. These concerned whether Baker had used his influence in the controversial TSX 'fighter plane contract award, and whether former White House aide Walter Jenkins had helped arrange an out-of-court settlement of a law suit against him. In fact, Baker invoked constitutional protections 45 times in declining to answer, or produce records, about any oi his wide- ranging activities. It was the second time the former Senate Democratic secretary had refused to testify before the committee. Baker's refusal posed a dilemma for -the committee. Investigators now are faced wilh two completely different explanations for a $36,000 payment ts Reynolds. The money has figured prominently in t h e committee's inquiry : into the tangled insurance arrangements for construction of the J17 million District of Columbia Stadium. i The two explanations went like this: circles of Western Germany, whom they wish to enlist in the preparations for nticiear war," he said. The Soviet leader's fire was concentrated on the West, but he also took an indirect Communist China. Russia's rival in the ideological struggle within the Communist camp.

McCloskey and several execj- tives of his firm said a "goof" resulted in the double payment to a Philadelphia insurance firm and to Reynolds. He said he was taking steps to recover the money paid Reynolds and he.- denied that the • payment was part of any kickback deal to funnel money to the 1EG0 Kennedy - Johnson campaign fund. — Reynolds earlier told the committee there was no mixup at all. He said Baker.and! McCloskey had arranged in advance for the overpayment. He said he understood the "excess funds" were apportioned to the campaign and to several individuals, including Baker and himself. He called himself the "bagman" in the alleged deal. Brezhnev reaffirmed that the new Soviet leadership firmly adheres to the policy of peaceful coexistence. HIGH AND LOW NEW YORK (UPI)—The lowest temperature reported this morning to th?
