(UPI) — Phillip S. narrow, 49, former Center Tup. justice of the peace, was sentenced to five years probation Wednesday on a charge of embezzling S15.477 in public funds. Judge E.

Clear skies, warm sun, soft breezes soothe and restore spirits and flesh depleted and chastened by Winter. Most of us enjoy our four seasons, but so often in Hoosierland we miss a Spring, as cold and wet wretched days drag along until we are plunged from Winter into full blown summer. Spring brings a resurgence of ambition. The property owner takes his rake into the yard. The early fisherman seeks the finny tribe. Wanderlust exerts its appeal, as motorists drive out aimlessly in the afternoons as though in search of Spring, in the next street, around the next curve, or in the next township. But to parody a line of Milton, Spring also comes to him who only stands and waits. KENNEDY Congress Asked To Overhaul Science Policy By ALVIN SPIVAK United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Kennedy today asked Congress to approve plans for overhauling the government's scientific policy-making machinery. The President submitted to Congress a reorganization plan under which he would , create an office of Science and Technology. It would be an independent office below cabinet status. The plan would become effective automatically unless vetoed by Congress. The new office would be headed by a director, at $22,500 a year, and a deputy director at $20,500 a year. The director would ie assigned certain functions now vested in the National Science Foundation. Coordinate Scientific Policy Principal purpose of the new office will be to coordinate the vast and sometimes scattered planning of national scientific policy. A Kennedy message to Congress said the President would have under the reorganization plan, "permanent staff resources capable of advising and assisting him on matters of national policy affected by or pertaining to science and technology." The National Science Foundation, some of whose duties were Transferred to the new director, will continue to originate plans for supporting basic research and science education.. Explains Duty Transfer The new office was given some of, the foundation duties because, -as the President' pointed out to Congress, the foundation heretofore operated on the same level as other agencies and thus could not satisfactorily coordinate federal science policies or evaluate other agency programs. The new organization will enable the executive offices of the President to draw on many new resources within and outside government by operating through the Office of Science and Technology which will become the government's primary coordinating body in this new field. lOCO?MOTIV£— This strange collection of halves of old Studebakers was put together in.

BROWN United Press International SIOUX CITY, Iowa (UPI)—The rampaging Floyd River pushed relentlessly toward the top. of weakening levees in Sioux City today in the most critical of the floods which have left nearly 2,000 persons homeless- in three states. Severe flooding was reported in Iowa, Nebraska and Idaho. Less serious flooding occurred in Wisconsin, Illinois, South Dakota, Missouri, and Minnesota. A ".mandatory" evacuation order forced 175 families from their homes in a: 23-block area of the Springdale section of Sioux City Wednesday night and more were expected to be removed today. Nearly half the .516 citizens of Waterloo, Neb., were forced from their homes. Some. 300 persons were homeless in and around Bellevue, -Neb. Three hundred persons were evacuated at Kings Lake, Neb. Scores fled before the North Fork River inundated 100 square blocks of Norfolk, Neb. Eight families abandoned homes near Cairo, 111. The flood death toll in Iowa and Nebraska reached three when a freight train tumbled from a water-eroded track near Luton, Iowa, Wednesday killing the engineer. Two children drowned earlier. •Whole communities were-! isolated in Idaho. >, Ice Jam Dynamited The second half of Sioux City's double-barreled flood, threat—the swollen. Big Sioux River — was eased' Wednesday night when ah ice jam at the Iowa'Public .Service Co. dam was dynamited, drop­ ping'the river, level 4V4 feet .in a matter of minutes. Authorities were still predicting a 23-fopt flood crest sometime tonight on the Floyd River and felt the levees could contain most of it, sparing Sioux City a disaster like that of 1953, when a 25-foot crest on . the Floyd caused $23 million damage to the community of 85,000 persons. •'"•'. When a 25-foot segment of the dike .broke Wednesday night, whole truckloads of sandbags were dumped into the breech. The break finally was closed 'with broken chunks of sidewalk from a nearby urban renewal project. Meanwhile, 100 miles to the south, the Missouri River rose at Belleviie, Neb., and the Strategic Air . Command transferred a squadron of tanker planes from ,Offutt Air Force Base to prevent possible interference with flights. 30 Blocks under Water To the northwest, the Elkhorn River splashed into Waterloo, Neb., running 18 inches deep through| the main street and in. undating half the- town. At Norfolk, in northeast Nebraska, the North Fork River cut a channel under a dike and flooded 100 blocks of the community of 15,000. At Pierce,. Neb., some. 30 blocks remained • under water, but the North Fork River was subsiding. In South Dakota, National Guardsmen were rushed to Elk Point to dynamite ice jams oh the Big Sioux River. • In Minnesota, the Zumbro and (Continued on page •) CONTRACT No Wage Increase But Benefits For Workers I m proved Former Chaplain Is Lenten Speaker Dr. Harry Walrond The second of the cooperative Lenten services sponsored by West Street Christian and 'First Presbyterian : churches will' be conducted Sunday in the Christian Church at 7p.m. The guest minister for the service will be Dr. Harry P.

The driver • of the .joifending vehicle made no report; PITTSBURGH (UPI) — Summit negotiators today began pulling together the loose ends of a new two-year basic steel contract —hailed by President Kennedy as non-inflationary — providing 430,000 workers improved . benefits but no immediate wage increase. The United Steelworkers Union's Executive Board, Wage Policy Committee and'company-level negotiating teams will meet here this weekend to approve; the agreement. Terms of the settlement were first reported Wednesday by United Press international only minutes after SW President David J. 'McDonald had summoned his top policy-makers into session. Viewed As Non-Inflationary In Washington, Kennedy was reported to have viewed the agreement as a : non-inflationary settlement that should preserve stable steel prices. Agreement at this early date— three months before the present contract expires at midnight June 30 — was exactly what the Kennedy administration wanted: It was under government urging that the negotiations got their.. earliest start in SW history and a- personal plea by Kennedy led to a resumption of bargaining aft-.^ er a temporary collapse earlier this month. The new agreement was understood to provide vacation, pension and job security benefits estimat-. ed to cost 10 cents an hour in the first year. No wage increase is included in the first 12 months of the pact but there is a provision for reopening talks on wages after one year. Steelworkers now . earn about $3.28 an hour. ' Increase Jobless Benefits .' The contract was reported to' contain an increase in supplemental unemployment benefits, longer vacations immediately and a new long-term vacation plan. The SW had been demanding a '13-week leave after 25 years service and the provisions agreed upon were said to be a compromise version of such a plan. Other provisions call for improved seniority and grievance procedures plus a stronger human relations research committee. This committee was instrumental in getting bargaining started long before formal negotiations began here Feb. 14. McDonald and R. Conrad Cooper, chief industry, bargainer, will resume their negotiations at 10 a.m. EST today. • nu$ foi OOVBMO* Nbton iUaa hla nomination papers In Loa Angelas to run for governor et California on the Republicanticks* ffahut Gov.

Drainage Speaker Urges Maintenance Proper maintenance of open drains may increase their usefulness three or four times, Don Sisson of Purdue University's agricultural engineering department told the group at Wednesday's drainage meeting at the 4-H Community building. He added' that planning and maintenance efforts wouTu be cheaper than the cost of cleaning out drains. Sisson recommended a water con- servency district for the cleaning and maintenance of the Cicero creek .watershed. Cicero creek drains more than half of Tipton county acreage. A flood problem may arise, the speaker said, when three open, drains that empty into Cicero creek west of Tipton are cleaned, out. To meet that eventuality, the course of the creek from Tipton to Hamilton county should be corrected. • v Mr. Sisson stated that Tipton county is probably the only county in Indiana in which every acre of land has a.drainage assessment.
