Lawmakers' Pay Hike Voted by House Mammoth 'Space Bird'Is Drilled Into Orbit Today Flight Is Saturn's 9th Success in Row By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — The Saturn 1 super-rocket thundered to its ninth straight successful test flight today and drilled into orbit a mammoth "space bird" satellite to climax a spectacular early morning launching. The satellite, Pegasus 2, unfolded two giant wings to a span of 96 feet — greater than most four-engine airliners — and began swooping through space like a great bird. It was to measure tiny meteoroids and the hazard they pose to astronauts making lengthy space trips. Each time the thin, metallic skin of Pegasus 2 is penetrated by one of the streaking cosmic bullets, the satellite is to emit an electronic squawk to be recorded in a memory device and radioed to earth on command. The 18-story-tall Saturn 1, the world's most powerful rocket, uttered a mighty roar and sent a waterfall of flame cascading over its launching pad as it flashed to life at 2:35 a.m. after a perect countdown. The massive first-stage power plant, a cluster of eight engines, generated 1.5 million pounds of thrust. It was the first time that Saturn 1 had been launched in 4 Jet Planes Strafe South Viet Nam Outpost Near 17th Parallel GOVERNOR VISITS HURLEY—Governor Warren P. Knowles of Wisconsin, left, visited Hurley for the third time Monday, this time as part of the Clean-up, Paint-up, Fix-up Program which got under way. The governor is shown here in the parade held in the afternoon, during which time hundreds of Hurley residents were present to give him a rousing welcome.

(AP) — Jack! attorney Joe Tonahill, who was Ruby told Monday how he took i on Ruby's trial defense team, numerous stimulant pills before killing presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and then expressed fear that he and Oswald would be linked in the assassination. "To the American people and the world . . . I'm going to be branded a part of a conspiracy said Ruby, forget how I I felt about the beloved President Kennedy. There has been so much torment, so much hardship—." Ruby's discourse, wandering from topic to topic and punctuated with emotional pauses, was taken trial defense out of the case for MlOs with no wing markings. Other Da Nang sources, however, denied that the raiders were black. American military spokesmen in Saigon, 380 miles farther south told newsmen the strafing was done by four U.S. jet fighters flying off course. Both Navy and Air Force planes were involved in raids during the day on North Viet Nam. A high U.S. authority here said Vietnamese spotted white- American — stars on the planes that hit the outpost and the initial investigation showed they fired 20mm cannon shells. "No MIOs are armed with 20mm cannon," he said. "Our best information indicates that the planes were not enemy aircraft." This authority said a final report will be made after further investigation of the shell fragments, but added: "We are 99 per cent sure of our initial findings." The American report in Da Nang that the planes were presumed to be MIOs was at first denied by a U.S. official in Sai- tacular was the blasting of a petroleum storage area near Vinh, 140 miles south of Hanoi by 12 U.S. Air Force F105 cess and enjoyment.

The Washington Post reported Monday night that President Johnson has ordered a team of FBI agents into the Dominican Republic to investigate the extent and nature of Communist influence in the Caribbean nation.

Tonahill's removal was ordered by Judge Louis T. Holland, Montague, Tex., who said the question of Ruby's counsel would be settled by the Texas Court of Crimnial Appeals following the sanity hearing.

Without a vote to spare, the House passed a 50-per cent pay hike to take effect Jan. 1, 1987. The hike from $10,000 a year to $15,000, to which $2,500 expense money is added, passed 56-40.

Two Skyhawks supported by two Crusaders from the carrier Coral Sea damaged three bridges under repair in the area between Vinh and Thanh Hoa, about 100 miles south of Hanoi. The approach to a fourth bridge was cratered, a spokesman said. The pilots reported heavy groundflre near one bridge. But no damage was reported and all four planes returned safely. On the ground, the Communist Viet Cong staged two more ambushes Monday night, leaving six government soldiers dead, 15 missing and four Vietnamese and one American wounded. One attack occurred between Da Nang and Hue, 450 miles north of Saigon. As a government platoon supported by armored cars entered an area where the Communists recently blew up six railroad bridges, the guerrillas attacked. Six government soldiers were killed, one wounded and seven were listed as missing. Viet Cong losses were not known. On Route 19 about 250 miles north of Saigon, a government convoy ran into a Viet Cong road trap. In the battle that followed, three Vietnamese and one American were wounded. Eight Vietnamese were listed as missing. There was no word of Communist losses.

'I know that I am a lost cause as far as saving my life — Don't believe Joe Tonahill — I know here is a whole conspiracy behind it," Ruby said. At another x>int, he noted, "I walked into a ,rap when I walked down that ramp (into the city hall basement where he shot Oswald). I know I am going to die a horrible death." Speaking of that Sunday, he said, "I shouldn't have tried to Bolivia's Junta, Tin Miners Accept Cease-Fire Agreement The FBI said it would have no comment.

Bruce Palmer of the United States is deputy commander. contingent, LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Bolivia's military junta and its tin miners agreed Monday night to a cease-fire calling for an end to the miners' eight-day-old strike and withdrawal of troops from the mines. The truce was signed after a battle between government forces and workers in the industrial suburbs of La Paz which continued into Monday night. At least 19 persons were killed and more than 70 wounded. Heavy casualties were reported in mining centers south of the capital where miners tried to repel troops under government orders to occupy the state- owned mines. The cease-fire agreement was signed by Gen. Alfredo Ovando Candia, the armed forces commander, and leaders of the Boli vian Drivers Union who have play the part background of a hero. My wasn't enough to play the part of a hero:" He thanked Judge Holland for allowing him "to speak for myself because I never had attorneys to speak for me," and appeared to regret the use of his trial defense team, Tonahill, Melvin Belli and Phil Burleson. I'd have done better if I'd thrown myself at the mercy of the court," he said. Twice he declared, "I don't want you as my attorney, Mr. Tonahill." Ruby began his statement saying: "I've been very patient while every one's classified me as an insane person." Ruby and his family had sought to remove Tonahill as his attorney and replace him with i group of attorneys they had selected. Tonahill contended he had a valid contract with Ruby. He said the condemned man signed it while he was sane and that he is now insane and incompetent to decide who his counsel will be. "I'm responsible for terrible things — this Is the part you think I'm insane about, but I'm not," Ruby said. Tonahill said there is no appeal of Judge Holland's decision, but that he would continue to work on Ruby's appeal before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals where he and Burleson are recognized as Ruby's attorneys of record. Judge Holland said a hearing blanket $2,500 expense money. The Michigan Legislature reached that mark for the first time this year. A raise from $7,000 plus $1,250 expenses was voted a year ago. Lawmakers alsO it- ceive mileage allowances. Senate approval of the measures is required. The $789,000 pay hike, which includes $5,000 pay raises for the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and secretary of state, was tacked onto a bill appropriating $39.57 million for general government operations in the coming fiscal year. It was among nearly $500 million in appropriations bills passed Monday—Including $278 million in restricted funds, Over which the legislature does not have discretionery power.

Bloody rioting erupted in La Paz last week following the start of the strike, and the junta sent 17 labor leaders into exile in Paraguay to join Lechin. An armed band of gunmen tried to assassinate the president of the junta, Lt. Gen. Rene Barrientos, Saturday at the Kami mining center 140 miles south of La Paz.

Judge Joe Brown, who presided at the Ruby murder trial, should be disqualified for the sanity hearing. Testimony Monday was peppered with charges that lawyers sought to exploit Ruby for profit. Earl Ruby of Southfield, Mich., a brother, said he lost confidence in Belli and Tonahill "when I learned they were making a movie during the trial."

Most lawmakers were quick to point out they were not voting the raise for themselves, but for whomever wins the 1906 elections. The measure, sponsored by Majority Floor Leader J. Bob Traxler, D-Bay City, and Reps. Daniel Cooper, D-Oak Park, Joseph Swallow, R-Alpena, and Thomas Ford, R-Grand Rapids, also says "the legislature shall be a full-time position." It does not, however, provide for any enforcement of the requirement. The measure also grants the Senate majority leader $5,000 in addition to his salary and expense money, bringing him up to the level of the house speaker. Other house and senate "officers" would receive "bonuses" of $2,500 or $:,000 each. "We are trying to bring the salaries in line with the position and tremendous responsibility of these state officials," Traxler said. He said the legislature rapidly is becoming a 10-month operation instead of 4 or • months as in the past. Minority Floor Leader Robert Waldron, R-Grosse Pointe, objected that making the legislature a full-time position merely encouraged lawmakers to slow down. "We are making our schedule longer and longer; we could finish earlier if we worked with diligence and didn't drag our feet." Opponents of the raise retaliated by refusing to vote Immediate effect for the measure. This means it would not take effect until 90 days after the legislature adjourns although It appropriates money for the fiscal year beginning next July 1.
