The U.S. Weather Bureau Cutting Costs Right And Left By HARRY KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) - The budget-cutting drive has picked up momentum on Capitol Hill. The Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday chopped out $771 million in Defense Department requests for aircraft, missiles and other military hardware. Expect Rocky Today TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, who had kinfolk in Kansas, was due here today on a political foray apparently aimed at winning over some of the more conservative elements of his Republican party. Richard Rogers of Manhattan, GOP state chairman, said as many as 2,000 may turn out tonight to hear Rockefeller, a liberal regarded as a leading contender for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination. The governor plans to shake hands with every one. Rogers sail he has agreed to be at Municipa Auditorium, site of the rally, 45 minutes in advance for that pur pose. ; A box supper of fried chicken will be served at $25 a box. The visit is part of a two-day tour that will take Rockefeller to Omaha, Neb., for a speech Satur day night. Rockefeller, who has been making a series of trip throughout the land, promised, on this one, to make another major statement attacking the policies o" President Kennedy. Rockefeller said in Albany Thursday that he will disclose his plans before next year's primaries. But it went along with the House n voting an extra $363.7 million— which the administration doesn't want and probably won't spend— o speed development of the RS70 reconnaissance strike bomber. Thus after the committee was inished, the military procurement bill totaled only $407.3 million less han the administration asked. . .The House, despite objections of Postmaster General J. Edward Day and a barrage of letters and :elegrams from postal employes, voted a reduction Thursday of $91,964,000 in appropriations for :he Post Office Department. Day warned it might mean a reduction in postal service, including no more Saturday deliveries. Chairman Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., called the defense cuts by the armed services committee very modest reduction in the numbers of aircraft, missiles, spare parts for them and research development." And today the House Appropria tions Committee stepped up its economy drive by whacking $202, 750,600 from $1,641,507,506 request ed by President Kennedy in emer gency funds for miscellaneous federal agencies. The 12-per-cent cut in appropri ations for the remaining three months of the present fiscal year was the largest the committee has made on three money measures this year. It previously pared appropriations for the Interior Department by about 10 per cent. Nice Job OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - State Sen.

THE OTTAWA Military Training For 3000 Cubans By ELTON C. FAY AP Miitary Affairs Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - More ban 3,000 Cubans are training in he U.S. armed forces, the Defense Department said today. Most are refugees who fled to this country. Others are veterans of the unsuccessful 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion—men who were imprisoned by the Castro government and then released for return to the United States. The Cubans will not be organized into any special unit but assigned to various Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force units as they complete their training at four bases. The program, the Pentagon announced at the outset, was intended to: 1. Assist refugees who have encountered difficulty in getting jobs here. 2.

A Timesaver At Post Office In use at Ottawa post office is a new print-punch money order machine. The machine, which writes the amount and punches it as well, is a time saver and makes altering of the money order impossible. It is expected the saving in "raised" money orders will soon pay for the machine. In addition to the machine for use in the office, a second machine is on hand for loan to those offices having machines being repaired. Postmaster T. J. Cui timings reports that an average of about 100 money orders are written each day in the local post office. and abilities by service" in the U.S. forces. President Kennedy, at his news conference Wednesday, commented that 400 to 500 Cubans have joined the U.S. Army, identifying them as former members of the Bay of Pigs operation. In his brief reference, the President did not refer to the fact that two programs now are under way and that the majority of the volunteers are average refugees. The first program was started last September. It permits any Cuban national who qualifies under physical and other standards to enlist. By December about 1,700 were in training under that program. In February, the Defense Department said it was making program for both officers and men of the Bay of Pigs unit. At present, 2,935 Cubans are training for ground force services, including the Army and Marine Corps. On training for service in the Navy and Marine Corps are 21 officers and two enlisted men. The Air Force has 28 Cubans in its training program—24 officers and four enlisted men. Long - Stemmed Artificial "So Life-like ... only your Florist knows the difference."
