12 THE JOURNAL AND COURIER, LAFAYETTE, IND. Wednesday Evening, June 10, 1964 Laos Flights Hinge On Premier's Nod VIENTIANE, L a o s (AP) U.S. Ambassador Leonard lin ger said Wednesday that con tinuance of American reconnais sance flights over Laos and fighter escorts for the flights is still a matter of decision between him and Premier Sou- vanna Phouma. Unger told a news conference he expects to consult with Prince Souvanna Thursday on the flights when the premier returns from an overnight trip to the royal capital of Luang Pra-bang. Souvanna went there this morning, presumably to brief King Savang Vathana on developments. The ambassador was commenting on unofficial reports that Souvanna had said he wanted the American reconnaissance flights which he re-quested three weeks ago stopped. Unger said he had no formal knowledge of Souvanna s reported desire to have the flights halted. But well-informed sources said no flights had been scheduled for Wednesday. These sources said there had been no plans for daily flights on an indefinite basis. Ghey indicated the purpose of the reconnaissance missions to spot Communist military concentrations might have been achieved but that further periodic flights might be needed for checks. Souvanna indicated to newsmen Tuesday that he had not given authorization for armed fighters to escort the photo planes. The U. S. decision to provide armed fighter cover for the unarmed planes has stirred a controversy in Vientiane. A U.S. Embassy spokesman said earlier the decision to provide fighter cover had been made on consultation with Sou- vanna's government. Unger reaffirmed he had consulted with Souvanna regarding protection for the recon naissance planes but declined to elaborate. Souvanna said he had proposed that Laotian air force fighters escort the American photo jets. REDS COMPLAIN The Communist Pathet Lao charged in a Peking broadcast that six U.S. jet fighters flew over Khang Khay, the Pathet Lao headquarters in central Laos, and nearby Phong Savang Tuesday and attacked Phong Savang with 12 bombs and two rockets. Prince Souphanouvong, the Pathet Lao leader, had been ex pected to complain further about the reported attack at a meeting in Khang Khay with members of the three-nation International Control Commission, Soviet Ambassador Sergei Afan-assiev and British Charge dAf- faires John Denson. Bad weather forced the helicopters taking the foreign diplomats to Khang Khay to return to Vientiane. The Pathet Lao claimed its gunners damaged two of the U.S. planes that attacked Phong Savang. The New York Times, quoting reliable sources in Washington, said the U.S. jets attacked a Communist gun position in retaliation for the downing of two American jets over the weekend. The Times said President Johnson and his advisers were reported to have ordered the attack to underline U.S. determination to stand firm in Laos. The attack was also interpreted in Washington as an effort to recoup prestige in the wake of the downing of the jets, the Times said. 2nd District xFavorite Sons' Soundly Beaten By ROBERT C. KRIEBEL Journal and Courier Political Writer INDIANAPOLIS Second District delegates rode along with two big winners in Tuesday's Republican State Convention, but their favorite son candidates took fearful drubbings. The district furnished Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine a solid bloc of 158 votes on the decisive third ballot which decided the governor nomination, and gave the U.S. Senate nominee, State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager, 118 votes in his third-ballot victory. Delegates from the district, Landgrebe, who ran for gov ernor, polled a mere 30 votes on the first ballot, six on the second ballot, and one on the third, and finished seventh each time in the field of seven. Clyde Black, of Logansport, another 2nd District hopeful, was bombed l,450-to-709 by Allen J. Lindley, of Westfield, in a first ballot decision for the nomination for state auditor. 5-Day Weather Five-day outlook: Temperatures will average about 4 degrees below normal highs 80-87 normal lows 58-64.

Bruce, 70, and Ed Whit-comb, 40, for senator; U.S. Rep. William G. Bray, 15, Richard Ellis, 10, Robert E. Gates, 12, Charles O. Hendricks, 31, Rob ert E. Hughes, 23, Earl F.

Tippecanoe County's delega tion, largest in the district, Washington Snyder won the nomination on the fifth ballot in a tight race against Richard E. Folz, of Evansville. Tippecanoe County delegates understood that McColly would be given a first deputy position in the treasurer's office if Snyder is elected in the fall. FIELDS LOSES Tippecanoe County delegates swallowed still another bitter pill, the defeat of Lafayette native William J.

When you have four, it's rough." The 1964 GOP convention, delegates generally agreed, was unique in many respects. It proved to be as wide-open as it had been billed. Right up until the ballots were counted there was no indication whatso ever of who would cop the big prizes the governor and sena tor nominations.

Synod's Council recommended the tax be paid as a token step in the direction of carrying out the denomination's national attitude on separation of church and state. But the 200 delegates to the synod at its 139th meeting on the Hanover College campus voted down the proposal by a margin of more than 3 to 1. The synod elected the Rev. Edward Morris, Scottsburg, as moderator, top office in the state among Presbyterians, and elder Charles Hosier, Kendall-ville relator, as vice moderator. The Rev. Edler Hawkins, Bronx, N.Y., newly-elected mod-, erator of the United Presby-1 terian General Assembly and first Negro to hold the top of fice in the denomination, will address the synod Thursday morning.
