-A TIIE TA5IPA TRIBUNE, Relatives of Astronauts Just 'Happy and Proud' By Associated Press If any of the parents, wives, brothers and sisters of Ame lea's new astronauts are frightened or uneasy about , their boys flying to the moon, they're keeping it to them selves. ; Pride and happiness were the principal expressed emotions as the families of the Bine prospective moon pilots learned the n e w s In their homes around the country. Mrs. James A. Lovell Jr., of Virginia Beach, Vt, whose Navy lieutenant commander husband is one of the nine, summed it up when she said she was "just terribly, terribly happy and terribly,, terribly proud." 'V -, . ' And If her husband should be the first man on the moon, she added, "I'd love it, and I know he would." " Mother In Florida .-"'Mrs. Blanche Lovell, moth-er of Lt Cmdr. Lovell, said "Jim's been aiming for something big all his life." v , S Mrs. Lovell, 60, lives with a sister and brother -in law, Mr. and Mrs. Mark W. Leedy, at the town of Edgewater, south of Daytona Beach and about SO miles north of the launching pad sites of Cape CanaveraL " Mrs. Lovell said her son was considered when the original seven astronauts were chosen but he was rejected partly because of nose and throat trouble which have since been corrected. 4 "Quite ProudT In Columbus, Ohio, Stephen K. Armstrong, a state employe and father of Neil Armstrong, said "His mother and 1 !are very happy that we are the parents of a son selected for such a high honor. i"We naturally are quite proud. This is what he want-ed.-We hope that everything goes for the best" -A smiling father In Jackson, Mich., said proudly of his air force captain son, James A.

September 18, 1963 her son will always be "little Jim" admitted that when he made his first solo flight "I told him n e v e r to do It again." : . . - "I used to get excited when he mentioned astronauts," she recalled, "but he took the time to explain to me and convinced me it . was all right" "Are Too Kidding?" The mother of Navy Lt. Charles Conrad Jr., Mrs.. J. Weir Sargent of Haverport, Pa., was so bowled over when a newsman told her her son had been selected as an astronaut that she first said, "Are yu kidding? 7 She quickly recovered her composure, however, to- say, "I'm so delighted." ' Equally delighted was the lieutenant's father, Charles Conrad Sr., who was himself a pioneer balloon pilot Now . living In Sarasota, Fla., and at present a patient in a Veterans Hospital in St Petersburg, the elder Conrad exclaimed, "Boy, this will help me get well," when he heard the news. "The kid's taking after his old man." he added, "but I'd rather go up in .a -balloon thango to the moon.". - Also In St Petersburg, a retired Air Force 1 general said of his son: . "I don't . know whether I would want to go but if this is what he wants I'm happy for him." - r . -Recalls Conversation V Maj. Gen. Edward H. White recalled that about six months ago his son, Capt Edward H. White,'"was sitting here right beside me and said he wanted to be on the first team that goes to the moon, and not on the administrative team on the ground." Gen.-. White said he called his wife at the beauty parlor to tell her the news "and she is as delighted as I am." The mother of Air Force Capt Thomas P. Stafford, Mrs. Marvin M. Crabtree, said September is an important month for her son he got his pilot's wings in September of 1953, became a senior pilot the same month in 1960 and y e s t e r day's announcement came on his 32nd birthday. "I never would have chosen the Air Force as a career," said Mrs. Crabtree at Weath-erford, Okla., "but I've seen too many lives wrecked by parents trying to steer their children into careers. "I just told him 'more power to you' when he said he wanted to fly. I put him in God's hands." to . . a OPENING OF THEIR NEWEST STORE FOR MEN AND IOYS AT . . .

A conference committee seeking to reconcile different versions passed by the Senate and House produced a meas-.ure that would cost the Treasury an estimated SI 19 million a year in lost revenues. President Kennedy, whose administration opposed the measure, has not said whether he will veto it if it is passed. He told his news conference last Thursday he was awaiting the compromise, but said the Senate version was preferable. The conference committee knocked out three key Senate amendments, while retaining a lower limit than the House voted on the tax-free contributions. Vote Sought Wednesday House sponsors plan to seek a vote Wednesday. Supporters of the bill nay it could benefit as many as seven million self-employed persons, such as doctors and lawyers, and 11 million of their employes. The compromise version would allow the self-employed to put as much as $1,250 a year Into a tax-deductible pension fund. The House hid voted a 12,500 limit, but the lower Senate figure was upheld by the conference. Self-employed persons who employ others would have to provide a pension plan for such employes also.

John E.

D. K. Carson, an Eastern Airlines flight engineer who is on strike, testified that he took the photos with a hidden camera using infra-red film which does not require a flash bulb. He told the House group he was intimidated into keeping the pictures In his private possession.

Then you may be thinking about your first trip to a broker's office. Many people don't know what to expect And a good deal ! of what they do expect often turns out to be fiction. . Check yourself on these key points: ; Fiction: Brokers aren't interested unless you've got lots of . money. , . . Fact: A great number of investors, especially beginners, are small investors. So don't let that bother you. Fiction: Brokers want you to plunge for all you've got , : . Fact: Not so. A good broker does not want you to get in oyer your head. The best way he can keep you as a customer is to put your interest first Before you invest, allow for liv ing expenses and emergencies, then tell him how much you can consider to start your program. Perhaps you'll prefer to invest systematically on a budget The Monthly Investment Plan of Member Firms of the New York Stock Exchange permits you to invest with as little as $40 every three months. Fiction : Brokers have a few pet stocks they want you to buy. Fact : A good broker will be glad to suggest stocks he thinks will fit your personal goals. , Some people seek extra income through dividends. Others set a goal of long-range growth in the value of their stock. Still others aim for some combination of the two. And some prefer the greater safety of principal and stability of income which some bonds offer.. v . ? , , Fiction: Brokers just play their hunches. " Fact: Facts, not hunches, should be the basis of a sensible recommendation. ' Nobody can know all the facts, and no one can tell how a company will fare. There are always risks in investment Prices go up and down. But your broker expects you to want to know about a company's past performance-sales, profits, dividend record. And, after considering many factors, you can decide what the company's prospects appear to be. Fiction: All-brokers are alike. -1 Fact: Far from it. Registered Representatives in Member Firms, for instance, have had to meet the requirements of the New York Stock Exchange for knowledge of investing.
