Currie and Hansen High Court Nominees Continued his reputation on the bench has been as a liberal judge, and his personal record is full of activities aimed at interfaith and interracial accord. But the Milwaukee jurist's show of power was almost certain to mean that his supporters would launch a much more extensive campaign on his behalf as soon as possible. The total vote of some 208,000 reflected a massive lack of interest by voters in this only state-wide contest, if indeed it was a contest, among the three candidates. A turnout of 240,000 10 per cent of the state's votershad been predicted. For the contrast, Thomas E. Fairchild, now a judge of the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at Chicago, attracted 564,132 votes last spring when he was unopposed for a new term. In 1965, Justice Nathan Heffernan defeated Howard H. Boyle of Beaver Dam in an election where 738,787 votes were cast. And in the last primary, in 1964, voters turned out 376,248 strong to nominate Justice Horace W. Wilkie and Boyle, eliminating Superior attorney Harry E. Larsen. In each of the contested races, the sitting justices Heffernan and Wilkie were re-elected. Cost $1.10 Per Vote Earlier Leo Fahey, state elections supervisor, estimated the cost of the statewide primary at $240,000, which figures out to be $1.10 per vote. Fahey based his estimate largely on the salaries of some 20,000 poll workers, who he said would earn an average of $12 each for the day's work. The late declaration by Hal-oway made the primary necessary, after an initial off-again, on-again period. Justice Currie's candidacy for another term was, of course, obvious. Dominic Frinzi, prominent Milwaukee trial attorney and a Democratic candidate for governor last year, was next to announce. But when Judge Hansen declared for the race, setting the stage for a primary involving himself, Currie and Frinzi, Frinzi withdrew, saying he was unable to devote time and money required for the preliminary contest. That made a primary unnecessary, until, Halloway announced. The race was his ninth futile try for public office. First Contest for Currie The contest is the first for the 67-year-old chief justice, whose age and the fact that if elected he would serve only two years of his new term before reaching mandatory retirement age was brought up by Hallo-way but failed to become a major point. Both Currie and Hansen first reached the bench with appointments from Gov. Walter J. Koh-ler Jr. A Sheboygan attorney for 26 years, Currie was named to the Supreme Court in 1951 to fill a vacaney caused by the resignation of Justice Henry Hughes. Over 1,000 Anti-Maoists Are Arrested HONG KONG (AP) More than 1,000 opponents of Mao Tse-tung, most of them factory workers, were arrested by Communist army troops in the South China city of Canton Monday night, Hong Kong newspapers reported today. Quoting travelers ' arriving from Canton, the papers said many of those arrested were members of the "August 1st Unit," known as opponents of Mao's purge. They said the troops surrounded the headquarters of the anti-Mao "Provincial Revolutionary Alliance." One paper said those arrested were banished from the city, but it was not known where they were sent. After the mass arrests, the papers said, pro-Mao Red Guards pasted up wall posters urging workers and peasants to return to their jobs. The posters also said that Chen Yu, governor of Kwangtung Province in which Canton is located, was arrested in Peking. The Hong Kong Chinese language newspaper Hung Look Daily News reported Tuesday that anti-Maoists were active in Canton and Kwangtung Province "inciting workers and peasants" to slow down production. Moscow radio claimed today that "opposition to Mao is very large" and anti-Maoists- are active in a number of provinces, including Hupeh, Kwangtung, Kiangsi, Tsinghai, Szechwan and Tibet. It accused Peking of using force in putting down the opposition and charged "the army is resorting to cruelties." Some anti-Maoists have been sentenced to death and others imprisoned, it said.

The omnibus bill, written by the Kellett task force, would rearrange 86 state agencies into 26 major departments and boards. Its most controversial items are proposed mergers of conservation and water programs, and of the welfare and health departments. Leonard, who is opposed to the latter merger, said he considered neither one essential to the bill. However, he said, "if the bill gets nitpicked to death, if you are treating agancies differently, then you've got to either kill the bill or keep it here to put it back together." Deadline Thursday The Senate faces a deadline Thursday night for halting action for the rest of the month to allow full-time committee work on the $1.9 billion budget package. Floor sessions will not resume until the week of April 3. Republicans, who control the Senate 21 - 12, got no further than the conservation question in their private caucus Tuesday. They planned to spend most of the session this afternoon closeted the floor to discuss the bill. "We may not be able to get to the bill until Thursday," Leonard said. "It may be a long day Thursday and a long night." Nineteen amendments are pending to the bill, with new proposals introduced Tuesday to strip out the health - welfare merger, protect the present system of appointing the director of veterans affairs, and to keep the aeronautics commission intact. Leonard said the vote on the conservation merger would be the very first one taken on the floor. Foresters Hold Officer Election BERLIN - St. Mary's Court of the National Catholic Society of Foresters elected officers for 1967-1968, during a regular meeting Tuesday evening. Elected were Mrs. Louis Jez-winski, president; Mrs. Walter Shebqlski, vice president; Mrs. Theresa Gosch, financial secretary and Mrs. John Klassa, Lillian Kasuboski and Mrs. Fred Arndt, trustees. Installation of officers and election of a new treasurer is scheduled for the April 5 meeting. Committeewomen for the next meeting include; Mrs. Stanley Novak, chairman; Mrs. Anna Sedarski, Mrs. Ella Seaman, Mrs. Klassa, Mrs. Albert Ike-man, Mrs. Theresa Grota, Margaret Grota, Mrs. John Minsky and Mrs. Ardin Jager, tice upon the retirement of Chief Justice Timothy Brown. The 55-year-old Hansen was named a Milwaukee District Judge by Kohler in 1954. He was elected to the newly created family branch of the Circuit Court in I960 and was re-elected in 1965. He also is chairman of the Milwaukee County Board of Judges, is a faculty member of the National College of State Trial Judges, an international vice president of CARE, a member of the President's Commission on Vietnam Refugee problems and is active in numerous humanitarian projects on local, state and international levels. He has four children. Founded Conference Currie, father of two, is founder of the Wisconsin Judicial Conference, which aims at the improvement in judicial processes in the state, and led the drive to secure legislative creation of the office of public defender to handle appeals by indigents. He has participated in some 4,000 Supreme Court decisions, and written about 600 of them. Both men are Protestants, and neither has any political affiliation. Consular Pact Ratification Is Seen in Week Continued the Senate's 100 members would vote against the pact. The treaty, signed in 1964, sets guidelines for establishing additional consulates by each country on the other's soil. It grants diplomatic immunity to staffs as well as officials. Each country would be required to give notification of the arrest of any of the other's nationals and provide access to any who were jailed. Johnson has urged its ratification as part of his program of achieving "a reconciliaiton with the East." Mundt and other opponents contend the agreement would permit an expansion of Soviet espionage in the United States. They oppose any agreement so long as the Soviets continue to supply North Vietnam with arms. Many Want to Be Heard But Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen, who resolved his previous doubts and now favors the treaty, said these and other objections "just don't stand up." Dirksen and Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield agreed that what they now regard as almost certain Senate approval won't come until next week. "A good many members want ot be heard on this matter," Dirksen observed. Rejects Arguments Fulbright told his colleagues the treaty represents "a modest, cautious step" in the direction of reconciliation with "the other immensely powerful state in the world today, a state with whom our relations are most sensitive and difficult, a state with whom our relations are of transcendental importance." Fulbright, who has often criticized Johnson's Vietnam war policies, rejected opponents' arguments against acting while the Soviet Union continues to support North Vietnam. "If I were the leader of North Vietnam I would be concerned at any sign of a rapproache-ment between an ally on whom I dependeo heavily and my opponent, especially if ""my ally and my opponent were the two most powerful countries in the world," he said. "And if I were an ally of the United States it would worry me to see the United States spurn an opportunity to reduce the tensions which might, if they are not reduced, lead to a conflict in which I might become involved simply because I was an ally of one of the protagonists." Medal of Honor Will Be Awarded To Heroic Medic WASHINGTON (AP) - An Army medic who shrugged off his own wounds to keep helping other wounded in his outfit in Vietnam will receive the Medal of Honor from President Johnson Thursday. The Army said Tuesday that Spec. 6 Lawrence Joel of Winston-Salem, N.C., will be the first given to a medical aid in the Vietnam war. Several medical aids in other wars have been awarded the medal, the nation's highest award for military gallantry. Joel, 39, now is stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C. He has served in the Army since 1946, except for a four-year break, and holds the Purple Heart and Combat Medal badge. RAIN 0EMVE SAN FMKCISC0 FREEZING WEATHER FOTOCAST Snow and snow flurries will occur tonight over the central and southern Appalachians and the northern Rockies. Rain mixed with snow is forecast for the middle Atlantic coast states and the northern Pacific coast region. Fair to partly cloudy skies will prevail elsewhere. It will be colder in the lower Lakes region and along portions of the Atlantic coast. Warmer readings are expected in the central Plateau, the southern Plains.

Tuesday's snow up to 15 inches in the Catskills blocked some rural roads in eastern counties but main highways were open. Some trucks were stalled. Winter hung on over most of Pennsylvania but loosened its grip somewhat on the Philadelphia area. Up to 15 inches of snow fell over western and central Pennsylvania Tuesday. More than 3 inches of rain fell on the southeastern section of the state since Saturday. At Fort Washington, Pa., on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, passengers on a stranded bus climbed onto the bucket of a front-end loader which was brought to the rescue after a lake formed on the highway. Flooding was reported all over Pennsylvania. The Schuylkill River poured over its banks and flooded parts of the East River and West River drives in Philadelphia. The Dynalloy Belle, an excursion steamer, was torn frdm her moorings in Norristown and swept over the Norristown dam. Twenty-five homes in Middle-town Township in Bucks County, Pa., were evacuated because of the high waters of Neshaminy Creek. The Cooper River in Camden, N.J. overflowed its banks and closed South Park Drive. Almost all other creeks and streams flowed out of their banks and brought discomfort to persons living nearby. However, the Delaware River the area's largest was expected to crest below flood stage. An army of volunteers went to work in eastern Kentucky Tuesday to clear debris from a flood that lost most of its punch. About 100 families were evacuated before the swollen Cumberland and Kentucky rivers and the Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy River returned to their banks. Heavy snows posed flood dangers Tuesday night for eastern, central and southern Ohio counties and authorities planned evacuations as rivers rose in the area. Many schools were closed and scores of roads were blocked by swollen streams. The swollen Monongahela River receded today south of Pittsburgh as scores of families spent the night on cots in public buildings and churches converted into emergency shelters. Families were evacuated in Fayette City, Belle Vernon, Monongahela and Charleroi along the river. Further north in Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Mountains region up to 15 inches of snow fell. At least five persons died of heart attacks while shoveling snow.

Gov. Warren P. Knowles sent a $843 million budget proposal for highways, conservation and other special programs to the legislature as a second bill in addition to the $1.1 billion general budget introduced earlier. The second budget covers programs kept separate from the general treasury and financed with special taxes and fees, such as the gasoline tax and hunting licenses. The bill earmarked $498 million for the highway commission. The Motor Vehicle Department would receive about $26 million. Conservation would get $42 million, with about $10 million more included for the department in the main budget. Knowles outlined the second budget bill in a written message to the legislature issued Tuesday. The 31-page bill was due to be placed before the Joint Finance Committee today.

Wed., March 8, 1967 Six Americans Killed by Reds Continued shelling coastal targets in the north on Feb. 26. The U. S. Command said the cruiser Canberra and the destroyers Keppler and Ingersoll bombarded 17 targets some 40 miles south of the port of Vinh. The warships were credited with destroying a coastal battery and a river port facility and with setting off a large secondary explosion indicating hits on munitions or fuel. The targets included river port facilities, supply dumps, petroleum storage areas and transshipment points. The headquarters said a shore battery on Hon En Island, 41 miles south of Vinh, fired on the U. S. ships. It said the firing did no damage to the ships which silenced the battery and damaged a nearby radar station. A 31-foot U. S. river patrol boat was cut in two by the 12,-576-ton British tanker Denby Grange at 1 a.m. today on a Mekong Delta waterway. The four American sailors swam to safety. The bow of the boat stayed afloat but the after section with the engine sank. Little Ground Fighting U. S. and Vietnamese military authorities reported little significant ground fighting Tuesday, and bad weather limited U. S. air strikes against North Vietnam to 68 missions. Fliers from the carriers Kitty Hawk and Ticonderoga smashed a series of targets at the mouth of the Red River, a U. S. spokesman said. U.s! B52 bombers struck three times in the south today. One of the raids was on a suspected Communist supply area 44 miles Clear Skies In Wisconsin By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Very cold weather prevailed throughout Wisconsin early today, with clear skies over most of the state. Light snow flurries fell in the southeastern sector Tuesday, although Beloit got up to 31. Today's early temperatures plunged as low as 17 below at Rhinelander. The coldest reading in the 48 contiguous states early today was 26 below at Hibbing, Minn. Tuesday's high was 90 at Palm Beach, Fla. Knowles noted $145 million of the highway sum would be sent back to local government to help them maintain their streets and roads. He said about $273 million would go for construction and improvements of the state's 11,-700 miles of trunk highways. About 1,600 miles will be rebuilt, Knowles said. Included in the conservation appropriation will be nearly $6 million to help open four new state parks, the governor added. The total will be boosted to 42 state parks handling an estimated 5.5 million visitors a year, Knowles said. Other self-financing appropriations in the special budget included $21 million for the State Industrial Commission, $18 million for the Group Insurance Board, and $30 million for the Wisconsin Retirement Fund. Ground Fire, Bomb Hoaxes Plague Airline INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) -A Lake Central Airlines executive said today he sees no connection among several incidents in less than a week involving the lines planes. A bullet fired from the ground penetrated the passenger area of a Lake Central plane approaching Terre Haute, Ind., Tuesday night. At the same time another Lake Central craft was searched at Columbus, Ohio, in a bomb hoax. A Lake Central Convair 580 crashed near Kenton, Ohio, Sunday night, killing all 38 persons aboard. Cause of the crash has not been determined. There were two other bomb hoaxes last week. "My opinion is that these are just coincidences," James W. E. Humphrey, Lake Central vice president, said at the company headquarters in Indianapolis. Humphrey said he knew of no threat to the 17-year-old feeder line which serves nine states and the District of Columbia. 0 Daily Northwestern . 10 north of Qui Nhon, on the South China Sea coast. The other two were in Tay Ninh province in support of Operation Junction City, the biggest ground sweep of the war. Spokesman said 4 American soldiers and 17 Viet Cong were killed and 20 Americans were wounded Tuesday as the big sweep moved deeper into the jungles of Communist War Zone C. Report Nine Killed A delayed report said 9 U.S. Marines were killed and 19 wounded in fighting over the past three days just below the demilitarized zone separating North and South Vietnam. The report included a battle between a Marine force and perhaps 200 or more Communists who hit them Monday and maintained scattered contact over the next 24 hours. The spokesman reported no significant contact in the Marine sector today, the anniversary of the first big Marine landing in South Vietnam two years ago at the start of the big U.S. troop buildup. Since then, U.S. troop strength in Vietnam has grown to about 415,000 men. It had been feared that the Communists might make the anniversary date the occasion for a major attack, but by noon nothing like that had been reported to the U.S. Command center in Saigon. Lodge Denies Report U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge returned to Saigon from a State Department conference in Manila and denied a report in the New York Times that he had asked President Johnson to replace him in the next few months. "These reports about my resignation are reports that come up every so often," said the 65-year-old envoy. "The last time was last December. "I repeat now what I said in December. I serve at the pleasure of the President. Obviously, all tours of duty must come to an end sometime. "I have no definite plans or firm decision whatsoever." Sources in Saigon said more than 1,000 American military personnel have moved out of Saigon since last November in the continuing attempt to . reduce the massive U.S. presence in the South Vietnamese capital. The sources said the American civilian population in Saigon remains about the same, and the total American population is estimated at 30,000. Build New Compounds New headquarters compounds are being built for. U.S. forces at Tan Son Nhut, the Saigon airport, and at Long Binh, northeast of the city. The U.S. military command issued orders to its mliitary police forces giving them authority to arrest U.S. civilians under certain circumstances. But they were directed to turn them over to "appropriate U.S. authorities" presumably the U.S. Embassy or Vietnamese officials as soon as possible. The order said U.S. MP's could arrest U.S. civilians "when necessary to secure the custody of an alleged offender or for the protection of human life or U.S. property, or when the individual's public conduct reflects unfavorably on the United States." U.S. Boosts Third Solar Ray Detector CAPE KENNEDY (UPI) The United States launched a many-eyed, sun-watching satellite today that may help scientists devise ways to forecast dangerous bursts of solar radiation in time to warn moon astronauts. By gazing at the sun's rays from above the screening effects of earth's atmosphere, the Orbiting Solar Observatory (OSO) also is expected to tell man more about the sun itself and, indirectly, the universe. The 627-pound satellite left the earth at 10:12 a.m. CST on the nose of the 46th Delta rocket launched since 1960. It was headed toward a circular orbit 350 miles high. OSO's sun watch is expected to be the most comprehensive to date. The federal space agency said such studies of the sun's activity are "necessary for a greater understanding of the space environment prior to manned flights to the moon." OSO was programmed for a circular orbit 350 miles high. It carried nine packages of telescopes and sensors to monitor sun rays and ultraviolet radiation and radio its findings to earth. The satellite will carry on studies begun by two previous OSOs which now are "dead." Motor vehicles are the top cause of accidental death up to the age of 65 years. After that, it is falls.
