22 Thursday, Nov. 6, 1969, The Palladium-Item and Sun-Telegram, Richmond, Ind. Purdue Trustees Adopt Limited Open Visitation LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Purdue University rusiees adopted by a 5-3 vote Wednesday a limited open visitation policy described by President Frederick L. Hovde as the most conservative in lite Big Ten. Purdue became the last university in the Big Ten to adopt such a policy, which allows visits in dormitory rooms between the sexes. Mrs. Margaret White, a trustee from Covington, said she voted against the plan "because I'm a small town, middle-class square." "I thought maybe I'd put in a little representation for the 88 per cent of freshman parents who are opposed to this," she said. The proposal, authorized for trial during the second semester, was developed by student leaders and approved by President Hovde. "We fully realize that the establishment of such a policy may cause some concern," Hovde said. "But we are also aware of the tremendous social changes taking place today in our homes, our communities, and our universities. The plan provides for a maximum of .two weekend afternoons and evenings, from noon until 1 a.m., for unchaperoned guests in dormitory, fraternity or sorority rooms. The plan provides that each housing unit approve open visitation by a two-thirds affirmative vote. The trustees also guaranteed that each student living in a residence hall shall be able to live in a unit not allowing guest hours. Woman Who Discovered Mass Murder Disappears LOS ANGELES (UPI) The maid who found the bodies of actress Sharon Tate and four other victims of a mass murder has disappeared, police revealed Wednesday, Winifred Chapman, 55, has not been seen since Oct. 10, according to police homicide detective, Robert Helder, who is in charge of the Tate case. He said Mrs. Chapman had been nervous and upset since Aug. 10 when she arrived at the Benedict Canyon estate leased by Miss Tate and discovered the macabre -murders. Adding to the mystery was the presence of Mrs. Charman's clothes and other personal belongings in her apartment. Helder said it appeared she took nothing when she left. The first word that Mrs. Chapman was missing came from her landlady, Mami White, who told police on Oct. 13 that she had not seen the woman for three days. Helder said the police department has contacted Mrs. Chap-man's relatives in Seattle, Wash., Denver and Cleveland to no avail in learning of her whereabouts. He described Mrs. Chapman as a Negro, 5 feet, 5 inches tall, weighing 120 pounds.

Pilots Urge Development Of Air Warning Indicator WASHINGTON (AP) - The Air Line Pilots Association urged renewed efforts Wednesday to develop quickly a low-cost, short-range pilot warning indicator (PWI) to prevent airborne collisions. Ted Linnert, the association's director of engineering and air safety, said that for more than 10 years the aviation industry has been expecting too much performance from a PWI, and for that reason has not pushed research. "Many persons would be alive today if a short-range PWI system had been given the high priority research and development effort it should have had during the last 10 years," Linnert told a National Transportation Safety Board hearing on inflight collision hazards. The hearings were prompted by the 83-death collision of an Allegheny Airlines DC9 and a private plane Sept. 9 southeast of Indianapolis. "The PWI will again fail to come into being for the same reason it failed about 10 years ago unless we recognize that for a start, a short-range PWI to minimize collisions at the lower closure speeds is, and has been, desperately needV he said. Linnert said private airplanes now outnumber airline aircraft 50 to 1, and by 1980 may be in the ratio of 75 to 1. He noted that when there were few automobiles, there was no requirement for a warning horn, a device now considered essential. "Airplanes have reached the number where a 'horn in the sky' is and has been desperately needed," Linnert said. Frederick B. Mcintosh, assistant director of safety for the National Business Aircraft Association, said aviation already has readily available a proximity warning indicator in the form of a powerful flashing white strobe light. He said these lights should be used, by day as well as at night, instead of the red rotating beacons now employed. Cambridge City Reporter-Mrs. Robert Carnes 211 E.

The measure worked out by House and Senate conferees contains some allotments for almost every project the Pentagon asked but also makes substantial cuts and contains the first congressionally imposed curbs on testing and transporting chemical and biological warfare weapons.

(AP Wirephoto) Sheriff Barely Wins Detroit Mayor's Post DETROIT (UPI) Wayne County Sheriff Roman S. Gribbs pledged Wednesday to "turn this city around" and unite racially disunited Detroit after narrowly defeating a Negro opponent to become mayor of the nation's fift largest city. "We shall have unity," the 43-year-old attorney told his cheering supporters. "I will be mayor of all the people." In a cliff-hanging election that went undecided until the last votes were counted, Gribbs edged Wayne County Auditor Richard H. Austin, a onetime bootblack who won the most votes in the September primary to become the Motor City's first major black candidate for mayor. A record 70.04 per cent of the city's 740,619 registered voters went to the polls in drizzly, chilly weather to give Gribbs a bare 50.49 per cent plurality of 7,003 votes out of 509,356 cast. Austin finished with 49.12 per cent of the unofficial vote,1 with law-and-order write-in candidate Mary Beck claiming the tiny balance. Gribbs swept predominantly white precincts where record turnouts approaching 80 per cent in some areas overpowered voting in Negro districts that went solidly for Austin.

But lower voter turnouts in many inner city precincts some as low as 40 per cent robbed him of victory. With 1,109 of 1,111 precincts reporting, unofficial returns gave Gribbs 257,214 votes, Austin 250,211, and Miss Beck 1,931. ' Gov. William G. Milliken wired both men congratulating them for campaigning "honorably and well" and pledged his full cooperation to Gribbs "as you face the many problems which lie ahead." Austin, who waited until nearly all the votes were counted before conceding, said his campaign "brought together forces that never before coalesced in our city." He pledged cooperation with Gribbs.
