Kaltenborn suffered a heart attack while visiting a son here, On his qualifications for broadcasting, Hans Von Kaltenborn once noted that the wife of the ma.vor of Fairbanks, Alaska, told him as they danced: "Boy, you're some spieler."

He said during an 86th biithday interview last July 9: "I always have to laugh at the boys now because they always have to get something written down before they go on the air." Kaltenborn pioneered on-the- air new* analyses in 1922. In January 1949, a few months after his surprise election victory over Thomas E. Dewey, former President Harry S. Truman t"ld a public dinner in Washington of a Kaltenborn broadcast he had .heard on election n'ght. Miminking Kaltenborn, Truman quoted the news commentator: "The President is one million popular votes ahead, but when the country vote comes in Mr. Truman will be defeated by .an overwhelming vote." In an interview last year, Kaltenborn, said. "Truman has always been friendly to me ever since he and I exchanged quips about his imitation of me." Kaltenborn, who quit school at 14 to become a lumberjack, ranked his coverage of Munich crisis in 1938 as his greatest professional achievement. It won him the personal compliments of former President Herbert Hoover. * * * A year and a half later, he was hired away from the Columbia Broadcasting System by the National Broadcasting Co. Kaltenborn, the son of Rudolph Von Kaltenborn, a Wisconsin merchant, entered broadcasting in 1922 while a member of the s'aff of the Brooklyn Eagle. He graduated cum laude from Harvard College. He joined CBS in 1930 as news editor, and in 1932 covered the presidential campaigns and the nation?.! elections. He handled these same assignments every four years through 1956. Kalt-.-'ntaorn arrived in New York last Friday from his Palm Beach, Fla., winter home to visit his son, Rolf. He became ill at Rolf's rome Sunday night and died in Roosevelt hospital at 5 p.m. Monday. Kaltenborn also is survived by his widow, Olga; a daughter, Mrs. Attmore Robinson, and seven grandchildren. A funeral service will be held at noon Friday at All Souls Unitarian church in Manhattan. WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Armed Services Commit- a military pay bill — more than double what President Johnson had proposed. The vote was 33-1 with only Rep. Samuel S. Stratton, D- N.Y., voting against it. In effect, the committee ap- Ground Is Broken for New Subdivision at Ontonagon ONTONAGON — Ground was! sula Power Company, the On- broken on Saturday in connec-1 tonagon County Telephone Corn- proved the 10.7 per cent average annual pay hike contained in a bill introduced by Rep. L. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C., and 33 others of the 37 members of his committee. But tliey also included provisions from the administration bill whose proposed pay raises had boen denounced by Rivers as "disgracefully inadequate." What the committee took from the administration bill was a variable re-enlistment bonus and a plan for yearly reviews of military pay. Both these administration proposals had been highly touted by Pentagon officials as a big help in solving the services' retention problem. The variable bonus would allow the armed services to pay as much as $8,000 to a man in some critical skill — such as radar technician — who re-enlists. The pay bill proposed by Johnson and strongly backed by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara would have given an average yearly increase of 4.8 per cent in total compensation, to become effective Jan. 1 next year. The Rivers' bill would become effective the first day of the first month after it was en- acte'd. The committee's approval of its own bill was the administration's second legislative setback in less than a week at the hands of the committee. The group won House passage Thursday of a bill giving Congress a veto over closing of military installations. Along the same line, the com mittee dismissed today the idea in the administration bill of giving Congress only a veto power over future military pay legislation. It called instead for tion with the development o f Ontonagon's new $2 million Country Club Estates subdivision.

Passed by the Senate 68 to 20 Monday night, the $3.24-billion- a-year bill contains these major provisions not in the previously passed House version: —A two - year authorization, rather than one year as in the past. House foreign aid leaders might not be too reluctant to go along with this, but it is coupled with: — A two-year deadline, under which the foreign aid program will terminate in its present form. A 16-member special commission would be set up to map the future of the program and make recommendations. — A far-reaching amendment giving the Organization of American States an important new role in channeling $25 million of U.S. military assistance out of the $55 million provided in the bill for Latin-American countries. A conference between the two houses to iron out a compromise is expected to start its work Thursday. Sen. J. W.

U.S. Dist. Judge William B. Herlands turned down moves to set aside the guilty verdict, reported by a jury of 11 men and one woman Monday night. The three men, all New York Jity Negroes, were convicted of conspiring to blow up the Statue of Liberty, the Washington Monument and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia — all government property. They also were convicted of muggling dynamite from Canada for the planned demolition. The three men could be sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of £10,000 on each of the two counts in the indictment. They were jailed to await sentencing Thursday.

U.S. paratroopers at Phuoc Vinh 40 miles north of Saigon were reported moving back to their base at Vung Tau. The paratroops had been flown to Phuoc Vinh just south of Dong Xoai to protect the airfield there. Vietnamese troops reportedly were flown to Phuoc Vinh today to take over defense of the airfield from the Americans. Reliable sources estimated government casualties in the Dong Xoai operation at 650, with half of these still missing. At least 200 civilian casualties were reported at Dong Xoai.

Morgan said he was unalterably opposed to splitting the bill, and he prevailed in the House. The House report that accompanied the $3.37-billion House measure declared against any need to change the form of foreign aid. Fulbright was unable to split the bill in the Senate, but he backed the plan for the two-year cutoff and revamping process. This is likely to be the major point of ideological contention between the two houses. The OAS amendment, which grew out of criticism of U.S. intervention in the Dominican Republic, was another Fulbright dea. It may win some friends in the House.

The purchase was recommended by both the Interior and Agriculture departments. Hart said the land, in Gogebic County and close to the Wisconsin border, would be a recreational attraction not only foi Michigan residents but those ol Wisconsin and Minnesota as well.
