1) Bonuses Play Role In Profits By ROGER LANE Associated Press Writer New York Cash bonuses, stock options and other special Incentives to executives play a . role in generating record corporation profits like those now being reported. ,., Practically every big com pany offers incentive compensation to lure and hold able man agers. Rewards under most plans are geared to profits. For top execu tives, the incentive often is tail- ored to overcome the federal in come tax rates on high-bracket salaries. " GENERAL MOTORS Corp awarded more than $100,000, D00 in bonuses alone at the start of 1963, based on emplove per formancce in 1962. Last Monday, GM reported 1963 earnings of $1,592,000,000, more money than any business has ever made in a year. Stock options granted to Lynn Townsend, president, and six other officers of Chrysler Corp., a um rival, stirred a demand by Senator Albert Gore (Dem., ienn.) to outlaw such pnvi leges. The Chrysler group, which converted an ailing firm into a big moneymaker, benefited Thore than $3,000,000 recently uirough a preferential stock purchase-sale arrangement. "This stock option privilege is a tax abuse which is crowing," Gore said. He called it detri mental to stockholders and unfair to taxpayers. SOME COMPANIES have profit-sharing plans. Others have - savings-investment funds in which the company matches the individual's contribution. U. S. Steel Corp. has seven kinds of incentives, some available to blue collar as well as white collar employes such as rewards for suggestions to improve efficiency. Analysts credit the GM bonus plan, established in 1918, with an important part in the development and retention of GM's excellent management corps. In all likelihood, bonuses will exceed $1000,000,000 again this year. They could amount to half again as much. AWARDS GRANTED last Feb ruary the so-called 1962-related bonus were distributed to about 14,000 employes, most of them salaried men and women earning more than $9,600 a year. The size of the bonus or whether an employe will get one is determined anew each year, based in the first instance on a recommendation of his immediate superior. Except for small awards made in lump sum, they are paid on an installment basis over five years. This provides a strong deterrent against switching to another company. When an employe quits, the payments stop. By RALPH DIGHTOX Associated Press Writer Edwards Air Force Base, Cal. The once-mysterious U2, a winged Mata Hari originally built to vault cameras across the Iron Curtain, is fast becoming a drab little workhorse of near-space research. Their "sky spy" function now largely taken over by Samos and Discoverer satellites, U2 pilots today spend many of their long, monotonous hours in the air on vital but unglamorous missions like these: U2 Plugs Away at New Jobs ONE Laying "eggs." From altitudes in excess of 60,000 feet, U2s drop 300-pound capsules- two can be carried by each U2 which simulate the film-contain ing nose cones kicked away from reconnaissance satellites. Discoverer and Samos cap sules are recovered over the Pacific. U2 capsules are dropped over land, and cargo planes from the desert base practice snagging them as they para chute to earth. TWO Missile tracking For the last three years ' U2s equipped with infrared (heat) measuring devices they look Ike small "pickle barrels" mounted behind the pilot's cockpit have monitored missile launches from Cape Kennedy, Fla., and Vandenberg Air Force Base, Cal. This study is aimed at improving Midas satellites' ability to detect missile launch-ings and warn U. S. defense forces. THREE Double-checking the X15. On many of its high-speed flights, the U. S. space agency rocket plane carries an air force camera package. Pictures taken from the X15 are distorted by air friction heat which sometimes builds up to 1,200 degrees fahrenheit on the X15 s skm. These are compared with undistorted photos of the same area taken at much lower speeds and altitudes from a U2 FOUR Hunting storms. With its unique ability to loiter for nours at heights reportedly up to 17 miles, the U2 not only can l ; r JL f ' i .-....- 172 SOARS ALONG ON RESEARCH MISSION U2 pilots don't always know the purpose of the "black boxes" earned on their planes, but it s a good guess some of them are instruments being developed for "super U2s" which could police nuclear test ban agreements. Under the heading of high-al titude research also falls a proj ect, calling for 500 hours of fly ing, to investigate a turbulence found at heights where there is supposed to be little air. U2s are measuring this turbulence to assist in the design of pro posed supersonic transports which will cruise at altitudes above 60,000 feet. Flights in this study have taken U2s from Alas ka to the Equator. FOR the last three years photograph hurricanes bomf f T f vantage points unattainable by ground -based weathermen, it can watch them develop over long periods up to eight hours at a time. U2 photographs, sharper and closer, frequently are used to pin-point potential storms detected by the Tiros weather satellite. FIVE High altitude research. U2 over Russia May 1, 1960, brought an official promise they would not be used again to spy on Soviet territory U2s have been channeled into an increasing research-and-develop-ment role. Some still are used for military purposes: photographic reconnaissance over Cuba, Red China and other areas. The growth of the U2 as a In Coma Since Mirac '57, e Only Hop e aper Neivsp Union Fined $5,000 New York Ur An arbitrator fined a newspaper deliverers union $5,000 yesterday for a wildcat strike against the New York Times. He said it would have been more except that union leaders tried to get the men back to work. The arbitrator, Prof. Monroe Berkowitz of Rutgers Univer sity, issued the ruling after an all-night hearing of the circum stances of the walkout Monday Berkowitz said the Times sus tained monetary loss far greater than $5,000 because' of the three and one-half hour walkout by 60 drivers of the Newspaper and Mail Deliverers Union of New York City and vicinity. If it happens again, Berkowitz warned, he will levy a, fine of $7,500 per shift. The dispute stemmed from suspension of a driver, Gerald Frusci, for refusing to load a truck according to new proce dures and schedules. Berkowitz, who had approved the change in work rules, ordered the suspen sion for three weeks. Yesterday, however, Berkowitz reduced the term of suspension, ordering that it end Saturday. . - A spokesman for the Publish- ers Association of New York i City said the fine would be paid ; to the Times. Special Press Correspondence Gary, Ind. Oscar Eugene Mills, 33, is now in his seventh year cut off from awareness of the world. He is the Indiana state policeman who has been unconscious since Nov. 30, 1957, when his attempt to capture a speeding motorist resulted in a tragedy. The night began for Mills like many another. He said good-by to his wife, Virginia, then 26, and their four small children one an infant. Ahead, they thought, was a lively Christmas, with the older children increasingly able to appreciate it. Mills set off, behind the wheel of a state police auto, on his regular Carroll County patrol. On Indiana 18, 4 miles from Flora, an auto zipped past him at race-track speed. scientific tool is indicated, how ever, by the establishment of a unit here at Edwards AFB, headed by Lt. Col. Harry An- donian, which is strictly for research. The unit has numbered as many as seven planes, currently has five. Andonian says the three U2s normally based here and two others detached to Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., fly a total of 25 to 30 missions a month, each lasting four to eight hours Andonian has a maintenance crew of 20, plus four navigators and three pilots, and he s looking for more. Volunteers qualified to fly in U2s are hard to find. The pilots must be graduates of a test pilot school and like the naviga tors, who really don't do much navigating but usually concentrate on running research instruments, they must be emo tionally stable enough to endure long hours in the air and long trips away from home. LEARNING to fly the U2 is hard enough. Its glider -like wings, so long they have to be supported by tip-wheels which drop away at takeoff, carry much of the plane's fuel. This means the pilot must constantly be alert to pump fuel from one wing to the other in flight to maintain balance. The really tricky part about flying the U2, however, is land ing it. "The big wi n g s mean she can t land until she stalls," An donian says. "The pilot has to make her stall just above the ground, and trained ground crews have to be on hand to grab the wing tips or she's likely to fall over. "A new pilot coming into the unit has to make at least 50 he's properly checked out, and we all make at least 10 landings a month just to keep in train- The U2's 80-foot wingspreaa means another hazard for its occupants. Designed primarily to soar, the U2 can't land quick ly, even in an emergency. As tronaut-like pressure suits have been developed to keep pilot ana navigator alive should the cabin pressure fail. TO STAY aloft for long periods, a U2 pilot has to choke his engine down to the leanest possible fuel mixture and a spe cial vernier valve has been installed in the cockpit to enable him to do so. This has created another haz ard for U2 pilots: flame-out. If the mixture gets too lean, the fire m the jet engine goes out, and it is hard to re-start at altitudes where there is little oxy gen in the air. This reportedly is what happened to U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers and brought him down within range of Russian antiaircraft fire. But even if there aren't any antiaircraft batteries around, the U2 pilot is still in danger after a flame-out. The temperature outside is 90 to 100 'degrees below zero fahrenheit, and the only heat he has for warming his cabin and defrosting his windshield comes from the engine. What do U2 pilots do when this happens? "Out suits are fairly well In sulated," says Andonian, "so our immediate problem is to get rid of the ice that forms on the inside of the windshield. We claw it off with our hands." Flame-out has been suspected in each of the five U2 losses reported to date in the Russian, practice landings before we feel Red China and Cuban areas. Parochial Aid Storm Bmving Washington (UPI) Two religious lobbies are exhorting their members to bombard the White House with letters and telegrams on federal aid to parochial schools. The lobbies stand on opposite sides of the ever-controversial issue. Each says it is trying to generate mail to the President in order to offset the efforts of the other. Carrying the hod for parochial school aid is "Citizens for Ed- ucation Freedom" (CEF), which describes itself as "a na tional, non-sectarian organiza tion of parents and friends of children in Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and other private schools." Its headquarters are in bt. Louis, Mo. Leading the opposition to any use of public funds for church- related schools is "Protestants and Other Americans United for the Separation of Church! and State" (POAU), with headquarters in Washington. ALTHOUGH BOTH organizations take pains to avoid a narrow denominational label, the CEF is predominantly supported by Catholics, while POAU draws most of its sup port from Baptists, Methodists and other Protestants. CEF and POAU slug it out year-round, trying to out-influ- ence each other in Congress state capitals and even, on oc casion, in county school boards their headon collision in the .vnite House man room was touched off by advance reports of what President Johnson plans to recommend in his "war on poverty" message which is ex pected to go to Congress about Feb. 15.

MILLS GAVE chase, but the reckless motorist whose iden tity still is not known increased his speed in order to outrun the trooper. It was over in minutes, as Mills speeded up, a second motorist turned in front of him to enter a driveway. Mills swerved and lost control. His car careened off the road and smashed into a corncrib. Still held by a seat belt, which probably saved him from being killed, Mills was found motionless and unconscious in the wreck. He was taken at once to a Lafayette Hospital. There, in normal time, a broken leg and lesser injuries healed. But noth ing could be done for the brain damage that paralyzed mm. On Mav 24. 1958. the trooper's 28th birthday, he was moved to St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Garv. There he was closer to Mrs. Mills. She had moved to her parents' home at Hobart, Ind.. and continued her almost daily vigil at her husband's bed side. EACH DAY she hoped and prayed for some sign of life aside from rhythmic breathing. The family physician, Dr. John R"!d of Hobart, and Dr. Marvin Bernard, a Gary neuro surgeon, operated in search of one little chance tnat we could help his condition." Thev found none. They are hard to believe he will never again be out of that bed," the physician said. Mills is fed a liquid diet of 900 calories a day, through a tube inserted directly into his stomach. During his long coma, his hair has begun to turn gray. DR. REED believes the care Mills has received at St. Mary Mercy could not be improved on. The doctor has studied in stances elsewhere of some revival from deep coma and has tried the treatments on Mills but has been defeated each time. "One must always leave the way open for a miracle," the doctor summed up, but medi cally there is just no hope of this ever happening." The State of Indiana pays Mills' doctor and hospital bills. No complete accounting has been made. Reed estimates that it already amounts to consider- ways 0j tnjs ably more than $100,000.

The draft legislation shown to educators specifically provides that the grants could go to "non profit private institutions ' a category which includes parochial schools as well as to pub lic scnoois. The White House has refused to confirm or deny that this pro posal is in the administration s anti-poverty package. The press oince said Mr. Johnson has not yet reached "final" decisions on his message. POAU ISSUED a statement this week calling on the White House for a "prompt denial" of the reported plan to seek aid for parochial schools. Failing to ob tain such a denial, it called for a shower of protest mail. "The American people Protestant, Catholic, Jew and un believer alike should let Pit. si-dent Johnson know they expect mm to uphold the Consecution, POAU said. "They shculd regis ter this demand at thi White House quickly before Congress and the country are thrown into turmoil." In St. Louis, CEF fired off a memo urging its local leaders throughout the country to "wire or write, right now" commending Mr. Johnson ?or the proposal to include parochial schools in the attack on poverty.

Her income repeatedly has had to be stretched thin to cover the family's needs. DURING the trooper's first year of unconsciousness, he was kept on the state police payroll at full salary of $395 a month. Then he was retired on disability pension of $187.66 a month. That was when Mrs. Mills went to work at Schereville.

"But this script, directed by Sturges, seemed like the right thing to get me started in pictures." THE GREEK-AMERICAN is calculating about his career, as evidence by his dispute with the producers of Route 66. Maharis went that route for two years and a half, attracting a large and demonstrative following. But circumstances caused Maharis to leave the television series. "Within a month after leav ing the hospital where I had been treated for hepatitis," he said, "they had me working in St. Louis 70 hours a week. This, despite their claims that they would make it easy for me n l came back to the series That seemed to me like a strange way to recover on the road. I lost complete faitn m them (the producers).

But the dispute didn't end, and the Route 66 company still claimed rights to his services. Opposing lawyers finally reached an agreement. "I didn't pay them a cent to get out of the contract," Ma haris said, "and 1 didn't give them any call on my services. The only concession I made was that I wouldn't star m any otner television series as long as Route 66 was on the air." He added with a grin: "And now it's being dropped."
