(AP) — Scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory settled down today to an exhaustive study of Mariner 4's photographs of Mars, coming in at a rate of one every 10 hours, in a search for some hint of life. Laboratory director William K. Pickering believes some sort ol life exists on Mars and the agency for which he works, the", National Aeronautics and Space I Administration, has plans for spending hundreds of millions of dollars to find it. No evidence of life showed up in the first three photographs' released last week.

The first witness scheduled for an afternoon session was the Cleveland detective who photographed the alleged injury of Miss Brenda Ayres on June 21-22. The 18-year-old Miss Ayres has accused Brown of slapping her in an east side mote) room the night of June 19. Neither Assistant City Prosecutor Albert Corsi nor defense attorney Norman S. Minor would disclose the subject of a 75-minute conference at this morning's session, except to say it involved a legal point. Minor said he plans to put the Cleveland Browns' rushing star on the stand this week to deny "all the ridiculous statements of Miss Brenda Ayres." Another prosecution witness scheduled to testify today is Mrs. Barbara Ayres, mother of Brown's accuser. people alike, the world around, have taken him to their hearts, and will mold his memory into their own image of the best life and prophecy of America in the 20th centruy," Dr. Greeley said. Mourners in the severely simple chancel of the church and in an ajoining room, included Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago, Gov. Otto Kerner of Illinois, Sen. Paul H. Douglas of Illinois. Some business houses and stores in Bloomington and adjacent Normal closed during the morning so their employes could attend the commun i t y service in the fieldhouse, which was enlarged to accommodate 9,000. The crowd .filled about half of the fieldhouse. Dr. Richard Browne, executive director of the Illinois Board of Higher Education, told the crowd there that his long- t i m e friend Stevenson was "statesman for all the world." As the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, he said, Stevenson "became not only the spokesman of this country but the voice of peace and reason for all the peoples of the world." vin Peterson, 253 E.

If the dots don't make sense in some areas — if they show a marking where none ought to be the picture can be made logical by feeding the tape into a computer. Experts tell the computer to print out another tape with the numbers, or dots, made lighter or darker to conform with the dots around it. Mariner 4 will have time to send over again at least twice before it streaks beyond radio range into a wide orbit around the sun.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Troops of the newly arrived U.S. 1st Division were attacked by the Viet Cong for the first time during the night and three Americans were Wiled, a U.S. spokesman announced. The spokesman said several more Americans were wounded in the attack that began with a mortar barrage against forward elements of the division's 2nd Brigade outside the Bien Hoa air base 12 miles northeast of Saigon. The 1st Division troops had arrived in Viet Nam last week. It was the first action in Viet Nam for the "Big Bed One'* division that made an enviable record in Africa and Europe during World War II.

This, stormed Rivers, would be a vote of no confidence in Congress. As a compromise, the committee bill calls for the administration to submit an annual military pay review to Congress, with a complete revision of the pay structure to be submitted every four years, beginning in January 1967. organization in some key areas Plane's Flight Investigated WASHINGTON (AP) — State Their reasoning is that while _ _ the Republicans may make j Department officials' said today last • some gams in the House only an. .. the investigation is continu- ot the nation.
