(UPI) — Mariner-4, the United States' space craft designed to phto- graph earth's intriguing neighbor Mars, jumped the gun today when scientists gave it delicate midcourse maneuver commands. Scientists termed the first attempt to change Mariner's course a failure, but said it was not serious. The spacecraft is equipped with a two-burn motor and in the failure this morning the motor was not used—therefore, giving scientist two more chances ,to make the delicate correction designed to place Mariner close enough to Mars to take photographs. Immediately after Mariner, for an unknown reason, disobeyed radio signal orders, scientists ordered the spacecraft j to again lock on the sun and the giant star, Canopus. The spacecraft's light sensitive "eye" made two false stops in its search for Canopus, the largest star in the Southern Hemisphere. When Mariner was launched last Saturday it had difficulty in finding Canopus. The spacecraft locked on four wrong stars before it finally found the correct one. Experts had hoped to change Mariner's course to bring it between 12,000 and 8,000 miles of Mars when it flys by the red planet next July. Without the correction, Mariner-4 would approach liars about next July 14 at a distance of about 151,000 miles- still a fantastic feat, considering its 325-million-mile, 7Vi- month-long journey through space. Mariner-4, launched last Saturday from Cape Kennedy, Fla., has held a sizeable lead over Russia's Zond-2, launched two days later, because the Russian Mars race entry was reported to have suffered a 50 per cent power loss early in flight.

(Tribune Photo Engraving) U.S. Sees Hope For Success In Viet Nam Grand Jury To Inspect County The Tipton County Grand Jury will convene Monday morning for its annual inspection of county governmental units and county properties. The inspection includes tours of the court house, county home, county highway garage and county jail. The county prosecuting attorney will also bring to the grand jury's attention any areas of illegal activities and un- prosecuted crimes which may be occurring in the county at the time. Any person in the county, according to state law, should also at this time bring to the grand jury's attention any knowledge he may have of illegal activities and offenses being committed in the county. By MICHAEL T. MALLOY United Press International SAIGON (UPI)—The outlook for the United States in South Viet Nam remains grim. But there arc. signs that make the anti-Communist struggle^ appear a little less hopeless.' First, the government has been killing Viet Cong soldiers at an unprecedented rate for the past • two weeks, with relatively few losses of its own. It is far too early to call this a trend, but last week's "kill ratio" of 630 Communists to only 110 government soldiers was a sharp change from months of gloomy statistics. Second, the month-old government of Prime Minister Tran Van Huong has turned out to be stronger than most observers had expected. Third, the Viet Cong appear worried about American threats to bomb their supply bases in Communist North Viet Nam. This is the interpretation which American intelligence officers here are putting on the recent spate of local rumors that the Viet Cong want to negotiate their way out of the wa:. These experts believe the rumors are deliberately planted to buck up American optimism and make the United States feel that an attack on the North is no'longer necessary. A fourth hopeful sign is the flow of new recruits out of the .Vietnamese training camps and into the field. This is the result of a major, recruiting drive which began in May, but' had no pratical effect until now, because the new soldiers were being put through their training cycles. Some battle-worn battalions have been boosted from a threadbare 340 men to a full 4CC. American advisers say that this has boosted morale as well as fighting power among the soldiers who measured their personal part of the war in terms" of the steady erosion of their own units. The plusses do not add up to a rosy picture. The Viet Cong have been steadily growing in numbers, as has the Vietnamese government army. Huong's government is still far from secure, and its Buddhist and student opponents very well may find an issue around which they can rally popular support"' Recent military successes may be just a tempor- rary run of good luck. But the favorable signs do exist. They were not here two weeks or two months ago. Scarcely cause for optimism, they are grounds for hope. Manhunt On The 83rd Infantry Division, preparing for its 19th annual reunion next August at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is seeking to locate 30,000 former members with whom complete contact has been lost since the end cf World War II.

(Tribune Phete-Engravlng) i Cheer Spread By Pope Paul Among Indians By Willi.'.m F. Sunderland United Press International BOMBAY, India (UPI) — Pope Paul VI took his pilgrimage of peace and charity i into Bombay's slums today. He; celebrated Mass for a congregation of 216 ragged orphans £fnd 5,000 working class people. "We do hot feel a stranger among you," the pontiff said. "The Pope is at home wherever the church is at home." The -moving ceremony was held in St. Paul's Church. Its nuns operate an orphanage ,in an adjoining building. The Mass was only one event on a busy schedule for this third day of the Pope's visit to India. Close to a million persons lined the streets as the pontiff made his rounds. He will return to Rome Saturday. File Altar Rail The orphans, some in tatters and most 7 or 8 years old, filed up to the altar rail one. by one to receive communion from the Pope. After the service, the Pope joined the children in a simple communion breakfast in the orphanage dining room. .The orphans, seated in long rows at tables made of crude wood, each had an orange, a piece of pastry and a cup of milk. The pontiff sat among them for about 15 minutes, sipping coffee with milk. At the end of the breakfast, a small boy stood up and read an address of welcome for the Pope. Written in big printed letters on a card with an ornamental border, the message said: "Some of us have no father: some have no. mother; and some like me have no father nor mother." Blesses Child' The Pope took the little boy's | hands in his and talked quietly with him for a minute or two. He then blessed the child.- Before leaving, the Pope gave the orphanage a-ch^ck for $1,000. It was gratefully accepted by parish priest Jonathen Dias 1 who said the money- would be used to expand the orphanage. | "We turn away more than 500 orphans every year due to the shortage of accommodation and fjnds," he said. • The pontiff gave $5,000 to the church and left the vestments he wore during the Mass. He .also visited a nearby technical school operated by the parish 3 . | As the Pope walked out the side _ door of the school and mounted a special platform, a crowd of about 50,000 per. sons broke into cheers of "viva il Papa," Italian for "long live the Pope."

'{ Phil Dickens Surprised By 'Quitting' Tale BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (UPI)— Indiana University officials said today they "knew nothing" about a published report that football coach Phil Dickens will resign. The report was published today, in a copyright dispatch by sports editor Earl Ruby in the Louisville Courier-Journal. ' Quoting an "informed source," Ruby also said his column that Army coach Paul Dietzel was being asked to replace Dickens l who the story said was resigning for reasons (Continued on page 6) House Democrats Would Purge Those Who Supported Gcldwater i By DANIEL RAPCPORT United Press International WASHINGTON (UPD; — Liberal Democrats in the House believe they now have enough votes to purge from the party wo Southern congressmen who upported Sen. Barry M. Goldwater for president. Key members of the' liberal) r i e n t e d Democratic study 2roup held a strategy session :ehind closed doors Thursday. They said afterward that they vould go ahead with plans IT liscipline the • two defectors, 3eps. John' Bell Williams, D- Miss., and Albert W. Watson, D-S.C, at a caucus of all House Democrats Jan. 2. "We, are satisfied we have a majority," said. Rep. Frank Thompson Jr., D-N.J., spokesman for the six members whq attended the meeting in the office of Rep. John A. Blatnik, D-Minn. Blatnik is chairman of the' study group. Other sources said Thompson based his claim on an informal nose count conducted mainly by telephone. ' The sources also said, however, that the majority now believed to favor the ouster Could melt swiftly away if President Johnson or some other top party leader,, opposed it. To bolster their case against Williams and Watson, the group assembled for display to the party caucus an array of press clippings, speeches and other materials to show how the two congressmen openly supported Goldwatcr against Presidsn. Johnson. Thompson was asked about reports that Johnson has indicated he .wtauld rather not begin the new session of Congress with- an intra-party fight. Thompson said none of his group had heard anything to this effect from the President, adding, "I dou'-t tha'. the President would inject himself into this matter." The Democratic study group, which . numbered about 125 members in the 88th Congress, announced before the election it wcjJd seek to bar from the party any members who directly' opposed the Democratic national ticket. , The party discipline, if sustained by the Democratic caucus, would hit Williams hardest because it would mean loss of his seniority. An 18-year House veteran, he is No. 2 man on the House Commerce Committee and could become its chairman eventually if he is not deprived of his party status. Watson, who was just elected to his second term, has little to lose in seniority. By ROBERT GORDON United Press International MERIDIAN, Miss. (UPI) — federal agents early today swept into several Mississippi towns to make .arresls in connection with the slaying of tnree civil rights workers last summer. A Mississippi sherilf and his deputy were among those picked up. At least 21 arrests were anticipated and by 10:15 a .m. EST. 16 persons nad been ij.^-u into custody according to Acting Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach, who made the formal announcement oi the arrests in Washington. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said 21 men had, been charged in FBI complaints—'.9 j on charges of violating the Civil Rights Law and two of knowing aooui the crime and failing to report it. Hoover said most of those arrested were members or sympathizers with the Ku Klux Klan. The three workers, two of them white New Yorkers and one a -Mississippi Negro, disappeared at nearoy Philadelphia, Miss., last June 21. Their bodies were found buried in an earthen dam in early August. The FBI has been investigating the case intensively. The state of Mississippi had been expected to lile soma murder charges in the case, j but declined at the last minute. It was reported the entry cl integration leader Dr. Mar;in Lur ther King Jr. in discussions on the case with Hoover kept tiic state from getting involved. Clvicers Under Arrest Neshoba County Sheriff Lawrence Rainey, 41, and Deputy Sheriff Cecil Price. 23, were among the first arrested. When they returned early this morning from a liquor raid (Mississippi is legally dry) they found FBI agents waiting for them at the Brick County Courthouse in Philadelphia. The two officers were immediately placed under arrest. Rumors had swept northeast j Mississippi that they were, among those to be picked up and it Was believed they were expecting the developments. •Philadelphia Patrolman Otha Neal Burkes, 71, also was among those arrested. The slain men, Michael Schwerncr and Andrew Goodman, both of New York and Negro James Chaney oi Meridian, were investigating the burning of a Negro church near Philadelphia when they disappeared. Their slayings, coupled with the unsolved killing of four Negro children in a Birmingham,' Alia., church bombing, touched off a feud between Negro groups and the FBI. Negroes accused the FBI of being un- ab'e to solve the racial cases. Among others arrested was Olin Burrage, a Philadelphia farmer who owns the land from which the bodies of the dead men were unearihed Aug. 4. F31 Found Sodies Price, was responsible for arresting Sihwerner, Goodman and Chaney on a routine traffic "violalion shortly before they disappeared. He said later they ,vere released after posing a small bond and that the last he saw oi them they were leaving town. At that point the three workers disappeared. Their decomposed bodies, each with bullet wojnds and the Negro reportedly so brutally beaten that his bones were smashed, were uncovered at tne dam site. FBI agents, reportedly directed by an informer paid as much as $25,000 went straight to the spot the bodies were found about 20 feet blow the top of the dam. ( All the suspects arrested today were to be taken to the Meridian Naval Air Station. Two carloads of FBI- agents wheeled' into the' base"' at 9:25, 10:25 a.m. EST. The ' base 1 was' sealed off to newsmen between the- hours of 6 a.m. today and Monday morning, on orders of the commandant.
