The President quoted no cost for his comprehensive, complex program, but administration estimated the cost at $4.6 billion for the first three years. Tn two maior resDects. the bill differed from Kennedy's past educational proposa.s: First, it lumped all the President's education requests in one package; and second, it cut and renovated the key provision of federal aid to public elementary and secondary schools. Little Enthusiasm Congress received the bill without any great show of enthusiasm. Some members quickly criticized the idea of putting all education proposals in a single package. Despite a new design, tne dui still features the program that has provoked Roman Catholic criticism of the President's proposals in the past; a four-year, $1.5-billion plan of federal aid to public schools, without similar funds for parochial schools. But the President cut this part of his program considerably, and he may have satisfied some Roman Catholic critics by going a good deal of the way toward meeting their demands on aid to parochial and private colleges and universities. But Msgr. Frederick G. Hoch-walt, director of the National Catholic Welfare Conference's education department, expressed "deep disappointment" with the new proposal. He said it contains "something for everybodyeverybody except the children whose parents have elected to send them to private schools." Bill Introduced Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., chairman of the Senate Education subcommittee, introduced the bill in the Senate later in the day. He said he would start hearings as soon as possible. The bill is long as well as complex some of its programs lasting two vears. some three vears. one four, and another five. Government officials said ho first vear starting next July 1 would cost $1.2 billion and the first tnree years a xoiai of $4.6 billion, but they would nnt estimate costs bevond that. rwnito thpir exoeriences on Capitol Hill in the past two years, administration spokesmen professed optimism for the hill's rhanrps.

Is Passed By Senate De Gaulle Blackball: Britain Wields Final Blow To Hopes for Full European Unity NO EUROPEAN UNITY- GOP LEADER MAKES CHARGE- Kennedys Said Rockefeller's Probing Friends Federal Agents Reported Busy In N.Y. State ALBANY, N.Y. W Walter J. Mahoney, Republican state senate majority leader, charged on the floor of the legislature yesterday that the Kennedy administration had dispatched several federal agents to New york to gather information that would be em barrassing to Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's administration. The Republican governor is a potential opponent of Democratic President Kennedy in the 1964 election. Mahoney said agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Treasury and Tax Departments were "honeycombing" the state "under the guise of a gambling investigation." Spokesmen for the FBI, the Treasury and the Justice Department denied Mahoney's charges. The White House refused comment. Rockefeller said "I have no personal knowledge of the situation." Charges "Wiretaps" Mahoney said the work of the agents involved "wiretaps galore." "The ruthlessness of the federal administration is beyond all believing," Mahoney charged. The investigation has been under way for several weeks, Mahoney said. He did not identify his informant. Mahoney said the agents had been instructed to "pay particular attention to those who may be advisers of Gov, Rockefeller." Run by Bobby Mahoney said the "widespread network" was being run by Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, the President's brother. The purpose, Mahoney said, was "to embarrass a great American." He said the Kennedy administration was afraid of Rockefeller. "That's why they are doing these things," he asserted. Mahoney also said that, prior to a hearing here last week on proposed revisions in a law banning strikes by public employes, Atty. Gen. Kennedy had called many labor leaders and told them not to cooperate with the committee but to demand outright repeal of the law, known as the Con-don-Wadlin act. Rockefeller has called for revision, not repeal, of the law. AFTER 9 P.M.- Cheaper Interstate Phone Calls Are in the Works WASHINGTON UP) Stay up a bit late and you can telephone to any . state in .the country for $1 or less some time after April 1 under "a plan announced by the government yesterday. The bargain rate plan for the Bell Telephone Com panies will apply between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m., the time to be based on where the call originates. On a coast-to-coast call, talk will be much cheaper. For example, a San Francisco to Washington three-minute nighttime chat now costs $L75 and 45 cents for each extra minute. The new rate will be $1 for the first three minutes plus 25 cents for each additional minute. More for Person-to-Person But telephone users will have to pay more 5 to 10 cents for a person-to-person interstate call shorter than 800 miles, regardless of the time. The Federal Communications Commission made the move to get the after-9 rate and all seven FCC members endorsed it, a commission spokesman said. But the plan, which Bell agreed to accept, can't go into effect until the companies file with the FCC a formal application for approval of the rates. To Cost $30 Million Over-all, the telephone companies will lose an estimated $30 million a year, which the FCC described as "a net annual savings to the public." Based on 1962 statistics, the after-9 rate is expected to reduce telephone revenues by $55 million annually, which will be offset partially by a $25-miilion increase from the higher person-to-person rates. FCC Chairman Newton Minnow said he is particularly pleased with the new after-9 p.m. rates because "they're designed for home telephone users." Noting that most new services in communications in recent years have been fashioned to help the large business user, he said: "What we've tried to do s here is to design something -for personal use. "With the increasing mobility of American family life, there are few persons who do not have some family member living across a state line, and this is designed particularly to enable people to call family members and friends at a convenient time and at a lower rate." In 11 States Now A commission official s.aid after-9 bargain rates are in effect intrastate in 11 states. Some FCC members were understood to believe they will become more widely used. State agencies control intrastate rates and the FCC interstate rates. The reason for boosting the person-to-person rates on short calls, the FCC said, is that they "have not borne their proportionate share of the cost of furnishing such services." Also, the commission said, this will help correct "the 'disparity where it exists between interstate and intrastate rates. Exiles Tell Of Castro Executions MEXICO CITY (LTD Mo. bile firing squads set up by the Castro regime for "on-the1 spot" handling of dissidents ex ecuted 17 peasants in central Cuba Jan. 8, Cuban exile sources said yesterday. A spokesman for the Cuban Revolutionary Student Directorate said the executions were ordered after skirmishes between anti-Castro guerrillas and militia units near Hoyo de Ma nicaragua, Las Villas province, The peasants, the rebel state ment said, were shot for sup plying the anti-Castro units with food and troop movement information. BRUSSELS, Belgium (P) President Charles de Gaulle lowered the guillotine yesterday on British membership in the common market,- jolting the Western Alliance and setting off repercussions which will be felt for years. The formal French veto on London's application to participate in the European Eco nomic Community was delivered in Brussels in the face of the llth-hour efforts by both the United States and European governments to delay a decision. . It was a diplomatic triumph for the dour French - general who has often shown, during and since World War II, that he felt his more powerful allies were not giving France its due. May Turn to Ashes But it was a triumph that could turn to ashes, in the view of supporters of the British cause. For one thing, the new French-German treaty of friendship faces an uncertain fate when it comes up for ratifica tion in the Bonn parliament. Ministers ot the six common market nation&,.concluded two days of wrangling on the mem bership issue by calling m Britain's chief negotiator, mild- mannered Edward Heath, and telling him his government had lost. So too in a sense had the United States, for diplomatic sources said De uaulles de termination to bar Britain from the common market represented the opening move in a long- range campaign to undercut both American and British in fluence on continental affairs. 5 Argued to End Up to the last, five of the six urged the adoption ot a com promise formula which would have kept alive Britain s bid to get into the 5-year-old trade and political grouping. The French held fast and won. iheir weapon was a com mon market rule for unanimity on basic decisions the veto. Heath said the French atti tude perhaps stemmed from the fact "some people regarded the negotiations as too successful to continue." This was appar ently a reference to De Gaulle Dutch Foreign M l n i s t e Joseph Luns said French stub borness "will have a very ad verse enect on the common market."

She pined for her native Japan. Even her two small children could not fill the aching void in her heart. She was Mrs. Chieko Take-naka, who lived in a well-furnished sixth floor, 4' 2-room apartment in Forest Hills. When she encountered neighbors, she bowed, the only gesture of friendship she could ma n a g e, since she spoke no English. But they indicated to her that her Ori ental obeisance was alien to them, that in this country the handshake or the spoken greeting takes the place of the bow. Husband Away Mrs. Takenaka disliked being alone when her husband, Tokutaro, 36, was at work for a Manhattan export house. Monday night she found herself without her husband again. He was away for the night. Shortly after midnight, Mrs. Takenaka telephoned the manager of her husband's firm. She pleaded with him to arrange for the family's transfer back to Japan. She told him ol her loneliness in a strange country. There was nothing he could do. After she hung up the phone, Mrs. Takenaka drew her children into her arms. There was a boy, Jung, 6, and a daughter, Setsuko, 2. Crumpled Body With the dawn, a first floor neighbor looked out and saw Mrs. Takenaka's body crum pled on the front lawn of the apartment building. In her arms was the body of Jung. His mother had strangled him with a towel before she gath ered her daughter into her arms for a six-story leap into oblivion. There was no suicide note. lis4 always predicted would them world control. Already there has been talk of an American return to isolationism. Already there has been talk of the formation of an Anglo-American entente to con duct what would actually amount to economic warfare with Europe. And this at a time when both Europe and the rest of the West is involved in economic war with the Communists. Already there has been talk that, if Europe will not make her military as well as her economic strength a part of a dynamic Atlantic community opposing communism, then the United States, overcome by frustration, might withdraw the military force De Gaulle which stands in Europe. This force has stood firm as a guarantee of solidarity with the Europeans as well as notice to the Soviet Union that any military adventure there would not find the West even temporarily divided or inactive. U.S. To Go Forward The first w oid from the United States, after the French blackballing of Britain's entry into the common market, is that she will not contribute to these divisions that she still believes in European unity, will pick up the pieces of her grand design for a Western community, and go forward with the majority of pro-European opinion as best she can. President Kennedy said only Monday that Europe gave promise of strong economic competition with the United States. This has been recognized ever since the movement for a unified movement began. The United States has supported that movement in the belief that the needs of the W7est would continue to transcend the needs of its parts. That belief lay behind original American support for the common market idea, and behind a truly historic British reversal of attitude toward the continent. Now one nation has temporarily shattered the belief. Would Strip Britain of Power The final French statement suggests strongly that France, with her own intentions for domination of Western Europe, believes that Britain can be brought to heel, and eventually to membership, shorn of much of her power by economic troubles and subject to domination herself. This is something the United States would not wish, and is not likely to permit. De Gaulle has faced down the other common market nations. He has ignored strong representation from the United States. He has ignored the Belgain warning that while a unified Europe could sit down as an equal with the United States, individual countries cannot. Gun Fancier Pleads Guilty To Savage Murder of Pregnant Girl in 1961 By KEITH COULBOURN Tribune Staff Writer Carlos Camacho, icy cool and wisecracking, confessed in criminal court here yesterday the brutal murder of a 16-year-old pregnant girl near Lutz more than a year ago. The 26-year-old gun fancier admitted he beat up Mrs. Sue Waldrup and then pumped three .45 caliber bullets through her left chest near the heart, creased her skull with a fourth bullet and then left her body in about three inches of water at the mucky edge of a lake. Found Next Day Her body was found next day,. Sept. 19, 1961, by Lt. Roscoe Godwin of the State Fish and Game Commission, who notified the sheriff's office, setting in motion a search for the murderer that finally reached nationwide proportions. Camacho was indicted for first-degree murder by, the county grand jury last November, a crime that carries penalties of either death in the electric chair or life in prison. He pleaded guilty at a "realignment" yesterday, however, to murder in the second degree. Evidence Insufficient State Atty. Paul B. Johnson accepted the plea to the lesser crime, which carries a penalty of 20 years to life in prison, after John Lawson. one of his assistants, explained to the court that evidence in the case didn't warrant prosecution for first-degree murder.

(Staff Photo by Bill Wilson) 38-District Measure Is Killed Companion Bill For Election on 42-Seat Proposal Defeated By VERNON BRADFORD Tribune Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE Pork Chop senators yesterday rammed through a 42-senator plan for apportionment by statute, but were scuttled in a move to backstop it with a constitutional amendment. The house, meanwhile, had no positive action in this first day of the third special session of the legislature on reapportionment in five months. A house apportionment committee meeting was scrubbed and a majority leader there, Rep. Welborn Daniel of Lake County, reported considerable disagreement among house factions. . He predicted a session of a week or two, while senate leaders and the administration were talking in terms of a couple or three days. Small county house majority members were reported to have huddled secretly during the afternoon with the hopes of com ing to the committee with a compromise apportionment plan which would embrace the senate plan for increasing membership there from 38 to 42, and weld it to a house plan of about 110-114 members. No Quorum That agreement fizzled and the committee in the house closed its doors without even, a quorum in attendance. : The middle-sized and large county coalition in the senate came close but not close enough with their bill for a re- constituted senate of 38 districts. The power of the dominating clique of pork-choppers was too strong, though, and the 38-sen- ator plan was junked by both committee and full senate votes. The vote by the full body was 19-19. The 42-senator proposal to amend the constitution by stat ute survived without a quiver the oratorical attacks of its opponents. Foes told senators that even it were legal and approved by the federal and state courts, it still would fail to raise Florida from its lowly position among the 50 states in the small percentage of voters able to elect a controlling portion of the senate. Wide Margin A roll call was pushed, and the 42-seat plan cleared the hurdle, 23-15, many votes above the simple majority required for a statute. ; . Senator Dempsey Barron of Panama City, who voted for the 42-senator plan along with sev eral others who went for the 38-seat plan, switched back, though, on the move to clear the 42-senator constitutional amendment, and that left the pork chop group one vote shy of the necessary 23 votes required for constitutional amendment. That died with a 22-16 vote. Backers of the 38-s enator plan were gleeful about their defeat of the companion bill in the senate which would have allowed the people to vote on the 42-senator plan in the 1964 general election. They contend the absence of a constitutional amendment compounds the evil of the statutory approach and sets it up for quick eradiction by legal action. Sees Court Attack Sen. Ed Price Jr. of Braden-ton asserted that "most certainly" any statutory plan which comes from this legislative session will be attacked in the State Supreme Court by a group of senators. The 42-senator plan sponsored by Senate President Wilson Carraway of Tallahassee and Sen. Dewey Johnson of Quincy makes it possible that even if it clears both houses and gets past Gov. Farris Bryant's veto pen, there isn't likely to be any change in the makeup of the legislature during the 1963 regular session. That is because the governor would have 120 days in which he could call the election for new officers. There appears to be growing opposition especially in the house to any plan which ap-proaches apportionment by statute. Most legislators seem to share the view that if the legislature fails in this last chance effort after its earlier unacceptable efforts that the federal courts will do the apportioning for them. Governor Bryant did not ad-(Continued on Pace 11, Col. 1) 3
