OEO director Sargent Shriver said the program is designed to cut what he called "America's greatest waste — the loss of skill and exceptional minds of those young people who are capable of going to college, but cannot do so because of the psychological, social and physical conditions of poverty." The summer programs are expected to point the way toward year-round courses needed to prepare low-income youngsters for college admission. The efforts would be coordinated with other parts of what the administration calls its war on poverty. A special committee of educators, headed by Dr. Arthur S. Flemming, former secretary of welfare in the Cabinet of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, will help organize a broad long- range program .Committee members will be named later. The program follows efforts tested last year when a number of colleges planned special pro grams with financial help from the Carnegie Foundation Archbishop of Chicago Named VATICAN CITY (AP)—Pope Paul VI has appointed Archbishop John Patrick Cody of New Orleans to be archbishop of Chicago, the Vatican announced today. The Chicago archdiocese is the nation's largest, with nearly 2 million Roman Catholics living within its boundaries. It has been without an archbishop since Albert Cardinal Meyer died April 9. There was speculation at the Vatican that Cody, 57, probably will be elevated to the rank of cardinal, perhaps at the next consistory in Rome. No date for a consistory has been set. Archbishop Cody, a native ol St. Louis, became archbishop of New Orleans last Nov 8 on the death of Archbishop Joseph F. Rummel. Archbishop Cody was ordained in Rome Dec. 8. 1931 and was consecrated as a bishop May 14, 1947. He was made bishop of the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese in 1956, moving from there to New Orleans in 1961. minutes. Rebel leaders claimed U.S. troops began the firing near a power plant just below the eastern tip of the international safety zone. The plant had been under attack almost nightly from raiding parties from within the rebel lines. The OAS report said a brigade commander of the Inter-American Force "reported that the attacking (rebel) troops were trying to maneuver and to capture positions in the security zone." * * The firing was PIPELINE ROUTE—This is a portion of the route for the pipeline to be installed by the Northern Natural Gas Company to bring gas service to northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula. Construction contracts have been awarded by the company for its $24 million expansion program. The project will begin at Duluth and terminate at Marquette. Natural Gas Firm Awards Pipeline Project Contracts * the heaviest U.S. forces troops since were sent to Service to Begin In Area Next Year Northern Natural Gas Company has announced that contracts have been awarded for construction of its pipeline that will bring natural gas to 22 communities on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin. The contractor will be Panama, Inc. of Houston, Texas, and right-of-way clearance will begin immediately. The construction program will be scheduled over two years, due to the size of the project and the brevity of the construction season. This summer the main pipeline from Duluth .to Marquette will be laid, while the branch line to the Keweenaw Peninsula will begin next spring. Pipeline mileage on the Duluth-Marquette line is approximately 270 miles, ranging in diameter from six to 20 inches. The Keweenaw P e n i n's u 1 a branch line length is about 58 miles of two to eight inch diameter pipe. The estimated cost for the entire program is $24 million.' To speed construction this summer, Panama will utilize three or more separate pipeline construction crews. When major work begins around July 1, the contractor will employ approximately 375 men.

A cease-fire was arranged at 8:30 p.m. by Brazilian Gen. Hugo Panasco Alvim, commander of the Inter-American Force, and Col. Francisco Caamano Deno, the rebel chieftain. During" the battle U.S. troops extended their lines four blocks into rebel territory beyond the power plant. An official military spokesman said the troops would pull back to the original boundary after they liquidated harassment in the area. Col. Caamano called the outbreak of fighting "a form of pressure" by the OAS to "force us to accept an undignified solution." Caamano's headquarters in the five-story Copello building was rocked by fire from paratroopers across the Ozama River. Almost all of its front windows were smashed by six mortar shells.

One of the American crewmen aboard the helicopter was killed and the other three were seriously wounded, the spokesmen said. The helicopter reportedly exploded in the air and crashed.

Senate Leaders Hope for Quick Agreement on Excise Tax Bill •WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate leaders hoped to get started today on a Senate-House conference to complete congressional action on the $4.7-billion excise tax cut bill. "There is a strong push to get this bill to the White House as soon as possible," said Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., floor manager of the bill the Senate passed 84 to 3 Tuesday night. It was understood the drive stood House conferees would accept their version. Another major -difference is in the treatment of the excise tax on autos, the biggest item in the bill amounting to $1.9 billion a year. Johnson asked for a cut of half of the present 10 per cent auto tax to 5 per cent. The House voted for repeal of the entire 10 per cent tax in stages ending in 1969. The Senate also refused to go; Director House Approves Registration Bill LANSING (AP)—Democratic legislators—who at first did not succeed in getting a four-year voter registration bill written into law—tried again Tuesday. The House passed an optional four-year bill 57-35. The Senate- approved bill now goes to Gov. George Rpmney, who vetoed such a bill earlier this year. The previous bill would have changed the state requirement for purging over registration lists from every two years to every four. The Senate bill allows the two-year registration to stand as the law,but permits communities to vote to lengthen the life span of registration lists from two to four years. "This is purely permissive legislation," said Rep. J. Bob Traxler, D-Bay City, majority floor leader. "This state had four-year registrations until the Republican Party decided it is politically expedient to change it to two years." "On March 16, we passed this bill by a margin of 71-36, ' said Rep. Russell Hellman, D-Dollar Bay, "and I suggest we do it again." A Democrat sponsored, Senate approved bill to permit voter registration on Sunday drew numerous objections, some of them on religious grounds. It failed to draw the 56 yes votes needed to pass. The vote was 53-37. Rep. Claude Burton, D-Bellevue, called it "one of the most ridiculous bills I've seen come before this house; I'd rather walk with God' than with speaker." Traxler said the bill had legal clearance from State Elections Robert Montgomery, White Welcomed To San Antonio ku, 240 miles northeast of Saigon. A spokesman said one of the pilots was killed and his body recovered. The other parachuted to safety uninjured. An unofficial list of American combat deaths in the war rose to 416 and those from other causes to 182, making a total of 598. A terrorist bomb exploded in the civilian terminal building of the Saigon airport, injuring 34 Americans and at least 12 other persons, but 120 U.S. troops waiting a short distance away to board two jet transports for the United States were not narmed. None of the Americans was reported seriously injured. In the convoy ambush southwest of Saigon, an estimated several hundred guerrillas attacked a unit of about 40 Vietnamese militia led by a district chief and his U.S. Army adviser. The district chief escaped during the fire fight, but the American was reported missing and it was not immediately known if any of the militiamen escaped. The helicopter apparently was hit in a fuel tank by an incendiary bullet. Another helicopter evacuated the surviving crewmen and the body of the dead American. In addition to the 34 Americans wounded in the airport blast, 9 Vietnamese, 2 Indians and 1 French national were reported injured, a U.S. spokesman said. Other reports said two French citizens were hurt. All the injured Americans were reported working in the terminal building or on business there. Military spokesmen said 17 were Army personnel, 15 were Air Force men anc* 2 were Navy. The majority were released after treatment, the spokesmen said, and the most seriously injured person appeared to be a Vietnamese who suffered a broken leg. Security officials said the bomb was a plastic explosive weighing between 10 and 20 pounds. It exploded in an Air France freight office overlooking the main waiting room. The concrete terminal was showered with debris and broken glass. Every window in the building was blown out and section of the roof collapsed. The airport was closed to commercial traffic. Officials said it probably would not re- By RONNIE THOMPSON SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) A jubilant homecoming awaited! space- walking astronaut Edward H. White II today in this historic city, the place of his birth 34 years ago. White, who thrilled millions with his breath-taking June 3 stroll in space outside the Gemini 4 spacecraft, was expected to arrive about midmorning at International Airport. San Antonio and Bexar County proclaimed this "Ed White Day" and arranged a whirlwind six-hour schedule, starting with a winding downtown motorcade. Accompanying the astronaut were his wife; their two children, Bonnie Lynn, 9, and Eddie III, 11; and his parents, retired Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Edward H. White of St. Petersburg, Fla. In a solemn ceremony after the parade White was to place a wreath at the door of the Alamo, an old mission often called the cradle of Texas independence. It was at the Alamo that Gen. Santa Anna's Mexican army wiped out a band of Texas soldiers. As San Antonio readied its native son welcome for White, similar plans were afoot for a celebration in Jackson, Mich., for his sidekick in space, astronaut James A. McDivitt. This was their third straight day of post-flight celebrations. Thursday McDivitt and White go to Washington, where President Johnson will present them the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Exceptional Service Award medal. The afternoon scheduled called for White to visit Ft. Sam Houston and the School of Aerospace Medicine at Brooks Air Force Base. White's birth certificate shows he was born at 6:20 a.m., Nov. 14, 1930, in what then was the station hospital at Ft. Sam Houston, a sprawling Army post inside the city limits. White lived here only until he was a few weeks old.

Record Crowd Jams Jackson's Parade Route White Gets Similar Reception in Texas By A. F. MAHAN Associated Press Writer JACKSON (AP) — Jackson gave a spectacular "conquering hero" welcome home today to its astronaut, James McDivitt, back from space 13 days. This 36-year-old's home town of 55,000 was jammed by its record crowd in history — an estimated 125,00 — which lined a parade route. While the Gemini 4 pilot was being welcomed here, his space- walking twin, Edward H White II, from whom he was split Tuesday night, was receiving a similar reception at his native San Antonio, Tex., home. Together since their splashdown in the Atlantic a week ago Monday, McDivitt and White re- Willow Run Airnort near Ann cei ved honorary doctor of astro- willow Run Airport near Ann nautical scien ce degrees from some 30,000 attended the »,.„,.. ,„,_,. _,__ ^,J;» «.« TT~< Jimmy to me." * * * To thousands of persons, equipped with thousands of cameras, space pilot McDivitt and his space walking partner were a big attraction. More than 500 turned out at dium. Police persons at estimated about 10,000 lined the motorcade route from the stadium to the university's $1.7 million Space Research Laboratory, which the astronauts helped dedicate, and about 2,000 watched the dedication. In downtown Ann Arbor, McDivitt and White drove underneath a half-dozen street-wide banners proclaiming "Welcome home," and underneath a shower of confetti. Nearly every store window in the area had a sign congratulating the astronauts and the Ann Arbor News carried a large "Welcome, astronauts" in banner on its front page. Weather for the festivities was ideal. Sun drenched the bowl- shaped football stadium, and a breeze set the array of college flags behind the speaker's platform fluttering. Outside the stadium, dozens of youngsters, surrounded the astronauts and tried to press close enough to shake hands. Many succeeded. • ..*.** "The last few days: of my life have been- days I'll never forget. Today itself is nothing short of magnificent,' McDivitt told the stadium audience. "Just a few years ago I sat right up there and admired the men receiving honorary degrees," he added. "I never dreamed it would be possible for me. I feel I can accept it only on behalf of all the other \people that worked on our program." "I had trouble getting used to people calling me 'colonel,' " White said. "I'll never in a million years get used to 'doctor,' " Jackson was ready with its own prominent display, of signs, including one placed on the front porch of Mr. and Mrs. James A. McDivitt Sr. by their neighbors, reading "Welcome home Jim and family." The Gemini space twins were on the speaker's platform at the Jackson airport when they part' ed for the first time since before their flight began June 3. t "The only thing that makes me unhappy is that Ed has to leave," McDivitt said. i their joint alma mater, the versity of Michigan at Ann Arbor Tuesday. They split at Jackson's Reynolds Airport, where some 15,000 turned out Tuesday night to greet them. The two will be reunited Thursday at the White House, where they are to receive the Exceptional Service Wards of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration from President Johnson. Jackson's parade was colorful, tuneful and splashed with beauty. It also was loud, with a tiny cannon firing as it went, jet fighters from Selfridge Air Force roaring over the red and blue-splashed streets, and a roar of cheers following as McDivitt and his wife, Pat, rode down- the packed parade route in a convertible.

House-approved measure was Minority Leader Emil Lockwood, R-St. Louis, who argued that passage should await other appropriation action. The new formula increases basic per-pupil allotments to $255 from the present $236.50. It includes a $23.3 million program to bring expenditures on low valuation districts up to the state average and $4 million for special aid to the underprivileged, many of whom do not live in low valuation school districts. Sen. Frank Beadle, R-St Clair, tried to strike the $4 mil lion on grounds it duplicated other programs but withdrew his amendment when it drew no support. The Department of Public Instruction will administer the $4 million to projects submitted by districts. Senators pointed out most underprivileged students i school aid, and Gov.

The father is an electrical engineer with Consumers Power Co. here. A teen - aged youth ep'tomized the throng's spirit as he marched alongside the astronaut's car hoisting high a placard carrying a color picture of McDivitt and this caption: "By Gemini, you did it." An hour before the parade pushed off, the route already was jammed with people spilling from sidewalks into the streets. Windows of almost every b u i 1 d in g were Jammed and both tickertape and confetti floated down almost cloudlike in spots. With the Great Lakes Naval Training School in the lead, seven bands marched. There also was a colorful American Legion drill team and float after float, some bedecked with beautiful girls and others with such space hardware as the Air Force's Bpmarc and the Navy's Jupiter missiles. There was also a 1919 Briscoe automobile built in Jackson and recently reclaimed from a Texas owner by this city's Junior Chamber of Commerce. All Jackson schools were dismissed for the day, and several stores, like Jackson's largest, had signs like this on their doors: "We're welcoming Maj. Mc- McDivitt. Open 11 a.m" The parade led to a reception at Parkside High School for McDivitt, who was to be a luncheon speaker and to narrate movies of the Gemini 4 flight, including White's 20-minute walk in space at 17,000 miles an hour. Later, McDivitt was to make the commencement address at Jackson Junior College graduation exercises in Withington Stadium. McDevitt is a graduate of this, as well as the University of Michigan, and the college's float had banners reading: "I want to be an explorer" and "We're proud of Jim." There was a bit of added attraction for McDivitt today. It was his ninth wedding anniver sary, the first he said he rould recall "us being together for."
