OLD VAlALAd New H-l alignment, with Lunalilo Freeway route through central Honolulu. By BUCK BUCHWACH Managing Editor, The Advertiser The State Highway Department soon will ask the Federal government whether the Lunalilo Freeway would be acceptable as the central Honolulu segment of Route H-l of the National Interstate and Defense Highway System, The Advertiser learned yesterday. The Lunalilo route is the sixth suggested by the Highway Department as a possible H-l route ' through the central Honolulu business district. A PUBLIC HEARING LAST NOVEMBER evoked strong opposition to the other five routes from major community segments, including the Oahu Development Conference, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Improvement Assn. and the Outdoor Circle. - : Fuel and vehicle tax increases necessary to pay for the State's portion of 50 miles of new Oahu highways-including the H-l segment also were rejected by the last Legislature. As a possible solution to the difficulties encountered thus far primarily financial Fujio Matsuda, State transportation director, confirmed yesterday he will seek a new approach to the knotty H-l problem. HE SAID DATA CURRENTLY IS being" compiled to support a State Highway Department request that the Lunalilo Freeway, currently nearing completion, be considered the central Honolulu portion of Oahu's H-l Interstate Highway. That request would have to be approved by the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads. Lunalilo is being built on a 50-50 State and Federal cost basis. If Lunalilo could be approved as a portion of the Interstate system, the Highway Department hopes the Federal government might pick up 85 to 90 per cent of the cost. Matsuda believes the money saved by the State could then be spent on "non-radical" adjustments of the present makai routes through central Honolulu. Honolulu traffic needs through 1975 might thus be met, according to Matsuda. THIS SOLUTION WOULD ELIMINATE the battle over which of the five other routes would be best for H-l, and would be more digestible fiscally for the belt-tightening State. If the Bureau does not OK the "sixth route," Oahu will again be faced with the problems of: 1. Choosing the H-l route through Central Honolulu. 2. Increasing tax revenues to finance its construction. The only other alternative appears to be calling a halt See FREEWAY on A-4 Col. 1 Bolt, 'Act Or We Negroes Tell Demos NEW YORK (UPI) Negro leaders yesterday threatened to bolt the Democratic Party in this year's general election unless they get faster action on civil rights legislation. The threat came from Roy Wilkins, Executive Secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), in his report to the annual meeting of the organization. "Although President Lyndon B. Johnson has given the Civil Rights- BUI top priority, there is every indication that the House Rules Committee, under Chairman Howard Smith of Virginia, may not finish action on this bill seven full months riter the President submitted it," Wilkins said. "THE LATEST report is that Rep. Smith may insist that since, technically, no hearings have been held on the amended bill, his committee will have to hold lengthy hearings. : "There has been already very great delay in this urgent matter. "If Rep. Smith holds the bill unduly long, it may be that Negro citizens of the country will be forced to reexamine their reasons for supporting the party of which Rep. Smith is an ornament. "SINCE NEGRO voters are not able to reach and reason with Mr. Smith at ballot box time, they may decide to put the matter on See BOLT on A-4 Col. 1 Mt. Haleakala Catches Hail WAILUKU - Hail fell at the 8,000-foot level of Mt. Haleakala yesterday morning, and the Weather Bureau said last night there is a possibility of light snow at the summit this morning. At Haleakala National Park, Superintendent Neal G. Guse said the hail was reported by park men about 9:30 yesterday. It was preceded by a heavy rain that halted park roadwork at the 9,000-foot level. Guse said the men encountered the hail as they were driving down to park headquarters. It lasted about 10 minutes, and some hailstones were as large as half an inch in diameter. The park at Haleakala summit remained closed in by clouds all day with steady rain. Last night Guse reported the temperature was "probably in the 40's." LANAI WAS CLOSED IN by clouds yesterday, forcing Hawaiian Airlines to cancel its once-daily flight to that Island and stranding Lanai passengers overnight on Maui. HAL officials said Hana Airport also was closed for a time yesterday by heavy rain. The rest of Maui lay under a gray overcast all day with rain in most areas, but police reported no storm damage of any consequence. The road to Hana was partially blocked by landslides in the Kakipi Gulch area, and the Kaupo Kipahulu Road was closed to repair washouts. Man Is Charged In Knife Slaying U.S. Hails Viet Nam Reshuffle SAIGON, South Viet Nam (UPI) Maj. Gen. .Duong Van (Big) Minh, chairman of South Viet Nam's ruling military junta, and his two closest supporters strengthened their positions in a reshuffle announced yesterday. U.S. officials welcomed the move. t , . ... . AT THE same time potential rivals of the junta were stripped of some of their responsibilities, including key combat commands and security and administrative posts. The reshuffle was em- ! bodied in a decree signed Sunday by Minh. It climaxed more than three months of behind-the-scenes maneuvering for power within the junta. MINH'S position as junta chairman was bolstered with the appointment to the two top armed forces posts of his close comrades-inarms, Maj. Gens. Tran Van Don and Le Van Kim. Don became commander-in-chief of the armed forces, in addition to his present position as defense minister.

Lumabao, who had been under police guard at Malu-hia Hospital since the killing, was brought to the police station early yesterday and was in the cell block there last night for lack of $2,500 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned on the charge at 9 a.m. today in Honolulu District Court. DETECTIVES said Lumabao admitted killing Mrs. Marcelina Valencia Flores, 45, during a quarrel over money. He told investigators she brought his $104 State retirement check, which had been mailed to Mrs. Flores' home, to his room Saturday and demanded $60 of it. He refused and a heated quarrel began. At the height of the quarrel, he hit her with a ham mer and stabbed her once, police said. The City-County Medical Examiner's Office reported that she died of the knife wound in the abdomen.

Million Cheer Pope On Return VATICAN CITY (UPI) Pope Paul VI, weary but beaming, returned last night from his historic pilgrimage to the Holy Land and was greeted by a million cheering Romans who broke through police barriers to run after his limousine with cries of "Viva II Papa!" Before leaving Jerusalem yesterday morning, the Pope called on all the world's leaders to devote themselves to peace and appealed to leaders of the world's churches to work for Christian unity. Last night he told the cheering crowds in St. Peter's Square he was bringing them the Peace of Bethlehem. THE 66-YEAR-OLD Pontiff had prayed in Palestine at the greatest shrines of Christendom, walked the path Jesus Christ followed to His crucifixion, and met twice with Patriarch Athen-agoras I in a momentous step toward ending the 900-year-old split with the Eastern Orthodox Church. The mighty bells of St. Peter's pealed loudly, and 2,000 persons among the 75,000 jammed into St.Peter's Square lit torches and formed a human cross of light to herald the safe return of the Pontiff, who spent three emotion-packed days in the Holy Land. The Pope paused as he reentered Vatican City to be welcomed by Italian officials. Again the joyful crowd swarmed around his car, while loudspeakers overhead broadcast a record of the Sistine Chapel choir singing "Tu Es Petrus" (Thou Art Peter). THE POPE, wearing his red mozzetta, a short cape with a white fur collar, then appeared at the window of his private study overlooking the square and addressed the huge crowd that still cheered wildly and waved handkerchiefs. "Thank you, my children, for this welcome which is in itself a memorable and incomparable event," he said See POPE on A-4 Col. 1 Air Search Still. Fruitless, But Crews Cling To Mope By BILL COOK Aircraft No. 10083, a bulky C-124 Globemaster, lumbered out over the Pacific Ocean yesterday inafruitless search for another C-124 which vanished last week with nine men aboard. The search plane flew 4,150 miles in 15 hours at a no-margin-for-error altitude of 500 feet. No. 10083 spotted no sign of the missing Globe-master. It did sight two floating planks, neither of which appeared to be from an aircraft. DESPITE THE apparent futility of the long, tiring search, the crew never gave up hope. - "If they're alive out there, we'll find them," said SSgt. John W. Smith of Jacksonville, Fla. Smith is loadmas-ter of 10083. First Lt. Ted Miller -of Fowlersville, Mich., pilot of the search plane, started the flight with optimism. .. - "I think we'll find something today," he said just before the pre-dawn takeoff See SEARCH on A-4 Col. 5 (Editor's Note: Day and night, the search continues for a plane with nine men aboard that disappeared into the Pacific last Wednesday. Yesterday, Advertiser reporters Bill Cook and Tom Arnold and photographer T. Umeda flew search missions on two separate planes. Here are their stories.) . 46 Planes Will Try Again Today Forty-six planes are scheduled to take off at dawn today to resume the search for the Air Force C-124 car-go plane which disappeared 5Vz days ago on a flight from Wake to Honolulu. The air search fleet was cut back last night to seven aircraft, but will be restored to all-out strength with the return of daylight today. , . . Concern- meanwhile mounted for the safety of the nine-man crew of the missing aircraft. NOT ONE SOLID lead to any survivors was developed by the search fleet during the last 48 hours. Observers scanning the waves over the 450,000-square-mile search area turned in reports of oil slicks on the water and unidentified floating objects. -When checked out by trained experts, however, the oil slicks turned out to be ; from passing ships and See PLANE on A-4 CoL 5 By TOM ARNOLD An empty five-gallon lard can, floating in the middle of the Pacific, was what a weary crew of a C-124 Globe-master got in 14 hours of searching for missing fellow airmen yesterday. "We'll try again tomorrow. Maybe we'll have more luck then," said a veteran flight engineer. He voiced the crew's feelings. THEY FACED the same disappointment the day before after flying a "creeping line search" for 18 hours in the French Frigate Shoals area. Their hopes were fading. They grabbed a few minutes' sleep from time to time, but cut their rest short to scan the ocean on a flight that seemed interminable. Our hopes were raised at 9:09 a.m. when we spotted a goldcolored piece of metal in the water as we skimmed at a dangerous 500 feet.
