Thousands Pay Homage to Stevenson Governor Signs Vehicle Accident Claims Fund Bill Legislators Pledge Early Amendments j LANSING (AP)-~Gov. George; Romney today signed the motor! vehicle accident claims fund bill j after winning promises of early | amendments from its chief leg- > islative backers. j The claims fund will protect persons against financial losses resulting from accidents causedi by uninsured drivers. i The amendments promised, i said Romney, "will eliminate a 1 great number of small claims : but will maintain coverage for the major injuries caused by uninsured motorists in this state." Insurnnce companies opposed the bill and said claims against it would exceed revenues. The fund will be financed this way: i * * * The owner of each insured vehicle will pay $1 each time he : secures vehicle license plates. ! The owner of each uninsured vehicle will pay $25 each time! he secures his plates. An estimated $18 million will- be put into the fund during its first year, to begin Nov. i. Persons sustaining damages from an uninsured motorist can file with the secretary of state for reimbursement from the fund. He collects if the un-; insured driver was responsible. The fund director, meanwhile, will then suspend driving privileges for the accident-causing uninsured driver until that driv-' er has taken steps to repay the fund for the fund's payment to the victim. Limits of payment are S10.000 to one person for personal injury. $20,000 for any one accident's total personal injuries and $5,000 in property damage. * * * i No personal injury claims for! less than $50 will be honored by, the fund. ' ! Romney said legislators have j agreed to increase the minimum j property damage payment to ati least $300 from the present $50. They also promised, he said, to push'for enactment of a bill requiring all motor vehicle insurance policies to include an uninsured motorist protection clause. ! These changes, he said, would i cut down the number of small I claims against the fund. j The fund is patterned after j the operation of the Canadian [ province of Ontario, whose officials helped Michigan legislators in drafting the plan. South Viet Nam Asks For More U.S. Troops Spending Cuts Are Requested WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson has called for cuts in government spending to offset the rising costs of his "Great Society" programs and the war in Viet Nam. Johnson said Thursday that spending on major programs aimed at his "Great Society" goal has pushed the budget up by $4.5 billion, but total government outlays will increase only $2 billion because of improved efficiency and reductions in less essential programs. But things will be tougher in 1116 coming year, he said. Johnson made his budget cutting plea to a task force created to seek money-saving measures, and told'its members: "Let me worry about the political problems — I'll make those decisions." • Calls" on Used Refrigerators- Sold 1st Day Listed!

On The Range And In The Onlonagon Country It's The Ironwood Daily Globe Want-Adi Get The Quick Action Results Phone 932-2211 for / Miss Ad-Taker By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP)—South Viet Nam's mill-' tary government asked U.S. De-; fense Secretary Robert S. McNamara today to increase; American forces in the country.' Assistant Defense Secretary Arthur Sylvester said the Sal-; gon government's top leaders! made a detailed request in a, session with McNamara that' lasted more than two hours. Sylvester said Chief of State ', Nguyen Van Thieu. Premier! Nguyen Cao Ky and Defense j Minister Nguyen Huu Co did not ; ask for a specific number of troops but put their estimates of Americans needed in terms ofi "force levels." McNamara and his fact-finding party made no comment of I commitment on the request, Syl- j vester said. • A U.S. spokesman announced! earlier that American intelligence officials had confirmed! the presence in South Viet Namj of an entire regiment of the' North Vietnamese army's 325th division, the "probable" presence of another regiment, and the "possible" presence of still another. I Meanwhile, U.S. military i spokesmen announced that 152' Viet Cong were killed in a bloody engagement fought Thur.-day about 15 miles south of Da Nang. The spokesmen said the figure was confirmed. Vietnamese army losses were "heavy," the spokesmen said. U.S. aircraft were credited with a major part in breaking i up the Viet Cong forces and pre-! venting government casualties from being even higher. Hundreds of U.S. and Vietnamese soldiers guarded Saigon's airport as McNamara arrived with Henry Cabot Lodge, ambassador-designate, and the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Earle G. Whee.ler. Lodge is succeeding Maxwell D. Taylor in Saigon. As many as 20 persons reportedly were detained. On McNamara's last visit to Saigon, on May 10, 1964, a Viet Cong terrorist planted a big bomb under a "bridge on the road from the airport to town. The terrorist was caught and later executed. The bomb was recovered and McNamara took another route into the city. The secretary said he would spend four or five days reviewing field operations and determining, in talks with Vietnamese and American officials, whether additional U.S. combat units are needed in Viet Nam. An appraisal of the use of American fighting men was one of his "prime missions," McNamara said. He said he also would discuss the possibility of more U.S. logistic support for the war against the Viet Cong. McNamara denied that the Joint Chiefs of Staff had unanimously recommended an increase in American combat troops. He did not mention other U.S forces. But he reiterated the American commitment to provide, whatever is needed to defeat the Communists and said, "We propose to fulfill that commitment." In the ground war, two Viet Cong attacks were made on Vietnamese army units 12 and 20 miles west of Saigon Thursday night and early today, U.S. military spokesmen reported. They said casualties in both actions were light; no U.S. involvement was reported. A U.S. Navy A4 Skyhawk had mechanical trouble and crashed in the South China Sea today, but the pilot was rescued unharmed by a destroyer, a U.S. spokesman said. The plane was returning to the. carrier Coral Sea after bombing with another Skyhawk about 135 miles south of Hanoi, the spokesman said. He added that the other plane returned safely. Peking's New China -News Agency claimed that one American F105 jet was shot down Thursday near vfet Tri, in North. Viet Nam's Phu Tho Province. The fate of the pilot was'not mentioned. U.S. spokesmen said previously that all American planes returned safely from raids Thursday. On the political front, reliable informants said government agents today arrested Col. Pham Ngoc Thao, a leading political plotter who is under a death sentence for leading an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow Premier Nguyen Khanh last February. Khanh was overthrown shortly afterwards by the officers who saved him from Thao's forces. Thao was reported picked up as he was breakfasting in a Roman Catholic monastery in a Saigon suburb. Although he had been sought since his coup attempt, he was seen around Saigon occasionally and apparently did not fear arrest. U.S. Army Sgt. Isaac Camacho of El Paso, Tex., a special forces soldier, has escaped to safety after 20 months as a captive of the Viet Cong, a military spokesman announced today. Camacho was the first American known to have escaped Viet Cong captivity. Thirteen other U.S. servicemen are still held by the Viet Cong, the spokesman said. Camacho was taken prisoner Nov. 24, 1963, when several hundred Viet Cong overran a U.S. Army Special Forces camp at Hiet Hoa, in Hau Nghia province about 25 miles northwest of Saigon. He was last seen leaving a sugarcane field and running down a dirt road. The spokesman said Camacho reappeared Tuesday and was apparently in good condition. The spokesman refused to give details of the escape, saying such information might harm other U.S. prisoners held by the Viet Cong. He said Camacho was no longer in South Viet Nam but refused to say where he had been taken. White Pine Puts Up New Building White Pine Copper Company has announced the beginning of construction on a new metallurgical research laboratory building .to be. Located, east of tys fine ore' bins. General 'Contractor for th6 40,000-square foot facility is the P. J. Nickel Company of Ironwood, with plumbing, heating and ventilation work being performed by Flaunt Comp any, Inc., of Duluth. The new building will provide necessary space and equipment to conduct metallurgical research Investigations at W h i t e Pine. It will be designed with a basic yet flexible design to meet both present and possible future needs under the company's expansion program. Included in the building will be three flotation laboratories, pyro- metallurgy and physical metallurgy laboratories and a special project laboratory, as well as offices, storage space and other facilities Total cost of the building will be approximately $106,000 with construction expected to be completed by late October. Subsidy Program Appears Certain To Become Law Senate Passes Rent Proposal Thursday By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP).— The heavily disputed rent subsidy program for low-income families today appeared certain of becoming law after it won approval of both branches of Congress. The Senate Thursday passed 54 to 30 a $7.5-billion housing bill containing a modified version of the rent program. The high priority administration measure was sent to conference with the House, which passed it June 30 by a 245-169 tally. Democratic leaders said they expected a compromise would be worked out easily since the differences are relatively slight. President Johnson received most of what he asked in the big bill although the rent subsidy program was different from the one he first proposed. In addition, ' the Senate, like the House, knocked out his recommendations for a package of aids to help in development of new towns near metropolitan areas. The rent subsidy program survived by seven votes, 47 to 40, when Republicans tried to strike it from the bill in the Senate. In the House, it was saved by six votes. As originally submitted, the program was designed to aid families with incomes too high to be eligible for low-rent public housing but still too low to be able to afford decent private housing. But it was altered by both House and Senate to cover only those families in tbe~ public housing income range The argument was made in both branches that millions of these families do not. have decent homes yet, so .that subsidies should not be paid those with higher standards of living. Sharp Earthquakes Shake a Wide Area LOS ANGELES CAP) — Two sharp earthquakes shook a wide area of Southern California within hours of each other late Thursday and early today. No injuries or damage was 'reported. Republicans Ask To Be Consulted WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Republican leaders in Congress say they want President Johnson to advise and consult them if there is to be a large scale stepup of U.S. forces in Viet Nam. Rep. Gerald R. Ford, House Republican leader, repeated at a news conference his view that bombings of North Viet Nam should be increased and antiaircraft missile sites being em- knocked out. But Sen. Everett Dirksen, the Senate GOP leader, when asked if he agreed with Ford, said "if there is a military necessity for it, yes We try to avoid military judgment up here. We are not trying to run the war." The administration has indicated it has no present intention of bombing the missile bases. LEGISLATORS WIVES VISIT STATUE — About 25 state legislators' wives and their children took time out from their busy schedule of touring the Upper Peninsula to stop in Ironwood and share, at least momentarily, in some of the events of the Hiawatha Festival. Many remarked that they were truly impressed with the gigantic statue of the legendary Indian chief and said they thought it to be a great asset to the tourist industry in this end of the U.P. Shown with the women are some of the city, Chamber of Commerce and Hiawatha committee officials, wearing Indian headdresses, including Russell W. Glynn, manager of the Chamber of Commerce; Erin Carlson, president of the organization, and Charles. E. Gotta of the Hiawatha Committee.

Gigantic Hiawatha Festival Gets Under Way Here Today Ironwood's gigantic Hiawatha Festival got under way at 10 this morning with a fishing derby at the site of the Hiawatha Statue This new event featured a huge swimming pool filled with live rainbow trout. About 25 wives of state legislators, currently visiting the Upper Peninsula, came and viewed the gigantic statue and visited with city and Chamber of Commerce officials. The Gogebic Range Jayc e e s operated a complete refreshment stand at the statue site, featuring beverages, bratwurst, hot dogs and .barbecues.

After the 40-minute ceremony, the cathedral's bell tolled and a military honor guard wheeled away the casket for a flight to Springfield. The body will lie in state at the Capitol there until Sunday morning. Earlier, while the casket lay in repose overnight in the cather dral's small Bethlehem Chapel, ihousands of citizens had filed by to pay their last respects.^ McGowan's eulogy centered more on the theme of Stevenson as the friend of man than as the statesman and political figure. 1, The world lost a friend, he, said, when Stevenson died of "a attack Wednesday in -• /•••• But he said Stevenson "died as he would have wished, • ^engaged' in his country's business there will be an exhibition of authentic Indian dances featuring the Was-Wa-Gon professional Indian dancers from the Indian Bowl at Lac du Flambeau.

Many floats will also take part in the parade. Prizes for the floats are divided into t w o categories, commercial and non-commercial. The prizes for both groups are identical, $25, $15 and $10. The parade route, according to Parade Chairman Joseph Blake, is from the intersection of Marquette and Aurora Streets, travel ing west on Aurora to L'awrence Street, left to McLeod Avenue, and then to the Memorial Build ing. altitude of one of earth's deserts bordering a jungle region. . Despite lack of detail; scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory were elated, calling the unprecedented electronic image a tremendous technical achievement. "I did not expect this or anyi of the other 20 pictures we may get from Mariner 4 to give a final answer to the controversy over whether there may be some form of life on Mars," said Dr. Robert B. Leighton, chie'f of the team of scientists who will study the photographs over the next several weeks. "However, I believe we have seen a few markings, smaller details than anyone else has ever seen," he told a news conference. He said the picture showed markings as small as f,hree miles across, indicating it was some 50 times sharper than those made by telescopes.
