I In the wake of the 218-170 vote tally by which the HoUse yesterday sent the joint Alaska Hawaii Bill back to committee, supporters were uncertain of their future course. j Chairman Engle (D., Calif.) Of the House insular affairs committee said the margin of defeat made problematical consideration of separate legisla tion for either or both terri tories- j "I'm not going to fignt a wind mill," he said. Both' Engle and Representa tive Saylor (R., Pa.), another leading statehood backer, attributed defeat to opposition by the leadership in both parties Saylor said he would recom mend the committee come back with separate bills for each territory, but he conceded there might be difficulty determining priority. On this score, delegate Bart lett (D., Alaska) said Hawaii should be considered first to "put the Administration to the test." Bartlett was referring -to President Eisenhower's repeated recommendations that statehood be- conferred on Ha waii. Eisenhower has made no such, recommendation for Alaska.' Delegate Farringtoh (R., Ha waii) said she was "encouraged" by the outcome, adding that Hawaii's best chance for statehood rests in eventual passage of a separate b,ill.

The "revolution" includes fresh emphasis on the "why" in the classic journalistic parade of w's, Catledge. said. The others are who, what, when and where Newsmen today call a fuller ex pression of the "why in stories interpretive reporting. The New Yorker stressed that readers understand news issues only in relation to their relation and impact on human beings 'They all are meaningless until they affect people." Sardine Assn.

Jensen, a former carpenter, entered the contracting business in 1948 and has since done a "booming business" in ttract sub division, the district attorney said. f Coakley's: aides estimated that Jensen netted $123,000 on a $2,- 926.000 gross , business in: 1951- 52-53, the years involved in the investigation. The prosecution stems from statements Jensen signed i April 5, 1951, and July 28, 1952, that his monthly income was $375 and that he was supporting -his own family on this amount. These, statements are required of sons and daughters of per sons applying for old age aid to enable the; County Welfare De partment to determine how much financial responsibility they have for support of their parents, j The welfare and institutions code provides for a sliding scale for support contributions by relatives.

PAID $75 A MONTH From January, 1952, to Sep tember of that year, a nine-month period, Mrs. Jensen was paid $75 a month, a total of $675, the district attorney said. From October of that year until May, 1953, an eight-month period, she received $80 a month, a total of $640, the D.A. continued. Jensen was called to the welfare offices when aid was discontinued on May 31, 1953, and he assumed full responsibility for supporting his mother then, the district attorney said. Chief Asst. Dist. Atty. Robert Hunter said that Jensen's .income was a net of $35,000 on a gross of $800,000 in 1951; a net of $36,833 on a gross of $1,083, 845 in 1952. and a net of more than $52,000 on a gross of $1,006, 000 in 1953.
