Douglas of Scientists Start Exhaustive Study Of Mars' Photos By RALPH DIGHTON AP Science Writer PASADENA, Calif. (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 of 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. They outlined a desert-like area similar to the broad plans on earth's lifeless moon. * * * Before any more are released, all of the possible 21 photo- cerem o n i e s I graphs taken as Mariner 4 flew u ,., c ,. „ . ..V past Mars Wednesday are going held Saturday evening at the^ Q be carefully analyzed. " -' Transrm t;t;ed across 134 million miles of space, they contain many "glitches," an engineering term for electronic errors and static. They also show several markings scientists doubt actually exist on Mars. A likelier explanation, they say, would be some fault in the camera and radio system. For instance, all three show a dark spot in the same area of the frame, almost as if the lens were smudged;-Frame No. 1 has cloud- like wisps above the surface, but these are much higher than the thin Martian atmosphere extends. Laboratory scientists have an LARGE CROWD VIEWS PARADE—One of the largest crowds seen in recent years jammed the streets of Ironwood six deep Saturday for the gigantic parade held in conjunction with the two-day Hiawatha Festival. Thousands of persons, many of them tourists, lined up long before the parade actually got underway to see the many colorful bands, drum and bugle corps, floats and other units and individuals that appeared here.

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 first 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 motel 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. 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 longtime 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." The winner * * and the runners- up were selected on the basis of poise, public speaking, appearance and sales of the Hiawatha buttons. They were chosen at a luncheon held earlier .this week at the G o gebic Country Club. The crowning of Miss Ironwood for 1965 climaxed the second annual Hiawatha Festival which was held here Friday and Saturday and was one of several events of the festival which was co-sponsored by the Ironwood Chamber of C o m - merce and the Junior Women's Club. Prior to the crowning a wide variety of local talent gave performances that thrilled the audience.

By HARRY KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) — The House was expected to override administration objections and approve today a $l-billion military pay increase bill — double what President Johnson proposed. The raise would average 10.7 per cent with the biggest share going to enlisted men—including recruits and draftees—and junior officers. Its aim is to attract and keep skilled men in uniform.

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. Democrats Find Is Bearing Some WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are finding that President Johnson's 1964 landslide victory is bearing some bitter fruit in the breakdown of party organization in some key areas of the nation. The voting riches won last year apparently have tended to set many local Democrats squabbling among themselves with the result that the kind of organization which wins state and congressional elections has deteriorated in some sections. The Associated Press tabulation began at 6 p.m. Friday and ended at midnight Sunday. Clerk Signs Up New Citizens as Voters SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Get 'em while they're hot. Registered voters, that is. Orange County Clerk William E. St. John cornered 96 persons last week to register them as they came out of naturalization ceremonies in Superior Court. His tally: 42 Democrats, 22 Republicans, 2 independents and 15 who declined to state their party The 15 who got away were minors. 7964 Victory Bitter Fruit administration strategists that the Republicans will give campaign priority to trying to win governorships as the quickest route to a national comeback. Their reasoning is that while the Republicans may make some gains in the House only an unforseen political upheaval could give the GOP control They look for the Senate to remain safely Democratic for sev eral years, at least. Seats of 15 of the 17 Republi can governors will be at stake House votes its approval. The measure was whipped out by the House Armed Services Committee on a 33-1 vote, approved by the Rules Committee and endorsed by the House Republican Policy Committee — despite Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara's campaign for the administration bill. The administration proposed a 4.8 per cent average increase totaling $448 million a year. McNamara said this would be fair to the servicemen and fair "to our taxpayers." Chairman L. Mendel Rivers of the-House Armed Services Committee didn't agree. The South Carolina Democrat called the administration bill "disgracefully inadequate." The differences between Rivers and McNamara go more deeply than pay. Since he became chairman in January, Rivers has clashed with McNamara over the authority of Congress to oversee military programs under its constitutional powers to "raise and support armies." This power struggle was mirrored in the .committee's rejection of the administration's proposal that it be given authority to make annual adjustments in military pay subject only to a congressional veto. 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. * * * Prizes were awarded the Plane's Flight Investigated WASHINGTON (AP) — State Department officials said today "the investigation is continuing" into the alleged flight of an American reconnaissance plane over the Pierrelatte nuclear center in southern France last floats in three categories, commercial, non-commercial, and that which traveled the greatest distance. Copping first place in the commercial division was a float entered jointly by Stern & Field and Eva Wurl. Second prize was won by the Big Powderhorn Mt. float and third place went to Point Motor Sales for its entry on which members of the Cloverland Barbershop Chorus and the Sweet Adelines rode. In the non-commercial division the Gogebic Range Junior Chamber of Commerce float took the first prize, with the Bessemer Chamber of C o m - merce winning second place and the Oma 4-H Club third.

After the parade the corps put on demonstrations at the site of the 50-foot statue of Hiawatha.
