John Anderson said today that requested salary increases of 12 per cent for professors and associate professors at state universities and colleges' are too much. The requests were made Friday at a meeting of the Board of Regents. The five state school were authorized by the regents to seek the increases for fiscal year 196465. Arm West With Missile WASHINGTON (AP)-West Germay has received its first U.S. Sergeant missile, a fast-firing bombardment weapon which can hurl a conventional or atomic warsead up to 75 miles. Informed sources said today the Sergeant went to the German forces last month. There was no many were in- iiidication how volved. As with all other atomic-capable weapons, the United States retains control over any nuclear warheads that may be mounted on Germany's Sergeants. The Defense Department announced about seven weeks ago its plan to start sending Sergeants to U.S. Army forces in West Germany in March. No announcement has been made of deliveries to the Germans. Germany pays for the weapons ft gets from the United States. Authorities said Germany already has 12-mile range* Honest John and 75-mile range Corporal missiles as well as 8-inch howitzers capable of firing atomic shells. The regents also authorized the schools to seek a 5 per cent average, increase for assistant professors and instructors and a 10 per cent hike for graduate assistants. It was estimated it would take at least $2.5 million to $3 million to finance the proposed salary increases. Anderson said he will discuss the pay raise proposal with the regents. He said he does not have any figure in mind to recommend. Anderson said the faculty members had received increases of 4 per cent of this year and 5 per cent a year ago. Action by tse regfnts last week was described by Clyde M. Reed, Parsons publisher and regents' chairman, as "formulating guidelines for next year's budget requests." He said the regents were taking note of serious deficiencies in upper level faculty salaries. He said the board feels strongly that an important adjustment in salary levels is most essential to future education needs and the welfare of the state.

Not Overly Impressed By Fanfare For Fidel MOSCOW (AP)-Soviet Premier Khrushchev led 40,000 Russians through a Red Square welcome to Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro Sunday, but the elaborate show failed to whip up the frenzied enthusiasm Westerners had expected. The bearded Cuban leader proclaimed that, except for the Soviet Union, his revolutionary regime could not exist. He heaped praise on Soviet economic and military aid. Castro, wearing a fur hat against the chilly winds, was relatively restrained in manner. Khrushchev opened the proceedings from the reviewing stand atop Lenin's tomb and set the tone. He donned steel-rimmed spectacles and slowly and dryly read a welcoming speech which—one more time—said the Soviet Union was lined up shoulder-to-shoulder with Cuba against the United States. Castro, who towered over his host, read a Spanish translation while Khrushchev spoke. The crowds, convoyed to the square in army trucks, applauded mostly on signal from Khrush- hev. Khrushchev claimed that Soviet upport for Cuba during last au umn's crisis had avoided a clash vith the United States that could ave touched off World War HI. Saying that the Soviet Union >vould stick by Cuba, he added, 'it is not Cuba that threatens the United States but the United States that wishes to take away he freedom the Cuban people won or themselves." Dominican Troops Marching On Haiti SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP)—Dominican troops started moving toward the Haitian border today, said a report from the armed forces secretary. It gave no details. An armed clash has been threatening between the two neighbors of the Caribbean island of His- paniola over the Dominican charge that Haitian troops invaded its embassy, Haiti broke diplomatic relations. President Juan Bosch gave Haitian President Francois Duvalier 24 hours to withdraw troops surrounding the Dominican Embassy in Port au Prince. The Embassy is sheltering 22 foes of Du- vauer. The Domonician deadline was originally set for 6 a.m., EST. But the government said it had extended the ultimatum until 8 p.m. because of an inter-American effort to keep peace. "Unless the outrages against the Dominican Republic in Haiti end within 24 hours, we will put an end to them by all means within our power," Bosch said. The Dominican armed forces Four Injured In Collision Four Ottawans were taken to Ransom Memorial Hospital this afternoon following a 2-car collision at the ISth-Cedar intersection. None was believed seriously hurt. The four are Dr. J. F. Barr, Sharon Norton, Jeannie Bishop and Diane Elbs. The three girls were in a car driven by Charles Norton, 113 S. Elm, when it collided with a car driven by Dr. Barr. Both vehicles were badly damaged. Dr. Barr's car, a compact model, was knocked over and landed on a concrete street marker. secretary, Maj. Gen. Victor Elvis Vinas Roman, announced all troop leaves had been canceled. But he said there was no military movement toward the Haitian border. The organization of American States ordered a five-nation fact- finding team to fly to both coun tries to investigate the crisis next door to Cuba. The OAS appealed to both governments to keep the peace. The dispute with the Dominicans flared as a result of Duva- laier's attempt to crush rising opposition to his regime.

(Herald Photo by Lota Smith) To Conduct Safety Check Of Vehicles Rocky Has No Comment On Romance NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller smiled and declined comment today on a published report that he will marry recently divorced Margaretta FU- ler Murphy May 18 or 19. A copyright story in today's New York Mirror quoted an unidentified friend of the Rockefeller family as saying: "The date will be Saturday, May 18, or Sunday, May 19. The ceremony will be performed at a Protestant Episcopal church—but not the one where Rockefeller usually worships," the interdenominational Riverside church on Riverside Drive. Rockefeller, a potential 1964 GOP presidential candidate, met reporters at Westchester County Airport as he left for Cincinnati for a Republican dinner tonight. Asked how he felt about the speculation and interest in his possible marriage, he said: "It's a free country. You have to expect that if you're in public office."

Safety checks on all motor vehicles will be conducted at the police parking lot, Third-Hickory and 'at five garages in the city.

The garages, police and officers from the Franklin County sheriff's office and the Highway Patrol will work together in an attempt to check the safety devices of every vehicle in the city.

Adv. safety sticker will be placed on the windshield to show that the car or truck has been checked and is safe. By having the car checked at the parking lot or at the garages, drivers can avoid the wait in line at the safety lanes. "The voluntary car check gives every motorist a chance to do his part in making our community a safer place to live," Flaherty said. "Even our best drivers are poor risks, if they are driving cars with bad brakes, worn tires or other neglected items." The safety checks will involve checking head lights, tail lights, muffler, tires, windshields, wipers, windows, horns, brakes and steering. The garages that will conduct the safety checks without charge are Robertson Motor Company, Moore Chevrolet - Olds, Inc., Bob White Motor Company, Minnick Motors, Inc., and Crites Body Shop. Fewer Are Born ...And More Die WASHINGTON (AP) - Births continued to decline during February, but the death rate was up under the impact of the winter's influenza epidemic. It was the 20th consecutive month that the birth rate has gone down in comparison to similar months a year earlier. The Public Health Service, reporting these statistics today, said the winter's influenza epidemic had a heavy impact on the death rate. February's rate of 11.2 per thousand population was among the highest monthly rate recorded in four epidemics since 1957. And, this monthly report said there were indications that the March death rate may go even higher than that of February. An estimated 314,000 babies were born during February compared with 318,000 a year earlier. The rale was down to 21.8 per thousand population from 22.4, a drop of about 3 per cent. The fertility rate of 109 live births per thousand women in the childbearing ages was also down 3 per cent. "The 12-month cumulative fig- urges indicate a deepening in the decline of the birth rate," the re port said. It said that the decline for the 12 months ended with February was 3,9 per cent from the rate for the corresponding period ending in 1962. By the same 12-month comparison, the decline was 2.1 per cent from 1961 to 1962.
