Gen. Frank r arrar said loday. Charles E. Carl, stale sani- alion engineer, said a 1966 law amending Ihe water pollution control statute omitted provi- sions for requirement of a per- mit for waste discharge. He said the water pollution com- mittee believes such a permit s necessary for water pollution control. Farrar said the public health advisory commitlee, with the at- torney general's approval, can set up rules to prevent pollu- io'n, antt that would include a rule making permits for waste discharge mandatory.

PARACHUTIST (Continued from Page One) Pianlanida's allraclive wife, Janice, watched as the balloon climbed 1,000 feet a minute. She heard her husband say, by ra dlo, that everything was fine. The balloon soared to 57,000 feet before there was any indi- cation of trouble. Yost said ground technicians heard a "Whoosh" on the radio'. They feared immediately that it was the sound ot air escaping from Pianlanida's pressurized suit. Then there was another sound. At the time, technicians thought it was Piantanida saying "visor." After studying sounc tapes last night, Ihe experts con- cluded the sound was a sharp gasp as Piantanida was strick- en. Court Won't Review Case [)n Obscenity WASHINGTON (AP) -- The iupreme Court refused loday to ·econsider its March 21 decision (finning conviction of publish- T Ralph Ginzberg for obscen- ty. Ginzburg was convicted' in cderal court in Philadelphia of 'iolating federal obscenity law, ientenced to five years' impris- onment, and fined $28,000. Publisher of Eros magazine, 5inzburg said neither a nine- ·ear-old obscenity standard set by the Suprefne Court nor the court's later rulings gave him varning that Ihe manner in which a publication is ad- vertised could establish the i erial as being obscene. Juslice William J. Brennan, author of the court's majority opinion, said "Eros was created, represenled and sold solely as a claimed Instrument of the Javits Declines To Vie For Post NEW YORK (AP)--U.S. Sen. Jacob K. Javits has formally bowed out as a possible contend- er for the New York governor- ship this year and says he will "vigorously" support Republi- can Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller in his bid for a third four-year term. The Republican senator, who is 61, made the declaration at a news conference Sunday. He left open the possibility thai he might seek his party's nomina- tion for president in 1968. Flanery Sausage Gets Contract WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Bureau ol Indian Affairs today awarded a $29,022 contract to Flanery Sausage Co., Huron, to provide meat products to the Pierre Indian school, Ihe Fort Thompson day school and the Lower Brule day school. Sens. George McGovern, D- DISASTER (Continued from Page One) gelling Pianlanida into his heavy gear, said: "He'll nol necessarily die. It is good, however, he didn't get any higher. "A decrease in pres- sure acts just like heat, and blood boils like water al 60,000 feel altitude." JIcCAI.L SAID Piantanida would black out, probably suf- fer the bends but that be thought he would regain con- sciousness before landing on reaching heavier density in the air. Dr. Leonard J. Thompson, one of two flight surgeons on the project, landed alongside almost as the gondola touched ground near Lakcfielti, about 20 miles east of Worlhington, Minn. He found Piantanida uncon- scious and moaning in pain and freed him from the gondola. Ambulances were dispatch- ed from Worlhington. And, at the control room in Sioux Falls, Mrs. Piantanida waited only long enough to hear that he was alive. A highway patrol es corl Ihen cleared I' : way for her to join him. IT WAS THE THIRD lime she had known the combination of anticipation and anguish in her husband's try for the 83,- 523 feet free fall drop held by Eugene Andreev, a Russian. His first try, in October, 1965, ended at St. Paul, Minn., when his balloon ruplured ou ascenl. When he reached an unoffi- cial 123,800 feet here in Jan- uary, Mrs. Piantanida said: "t have all the confidence in the world in him, but I'll never get used (o it," Nick, however, said a few days ago he'd try as long as he lived. He hoped lo prove, loo, mnn could drop al super- sexual stimulation would A moment later came the cry of "emergency!". In 16 seconds from the lime the "whoosh" was heard, Yos said, the gondola was cul loose from the balloon by radio signa and a parachute descent was under way. It took about 25 min ules for Ihe gondola to reach Ihe ground. It came down near Lakefield Minn., about 20 -miles east o WorJhington. Piantanida, gasp ing for breath, was rushed to Ihe hospilal in Worlhington. Doctors gave him drugs correct his blood chemistry. Pianlanida underwent a Iracb colomy, in which a tube wa inserted in his throat, to ease areathing. A medical spokesman said the parachustist was suf fering "from secondary change from a lack ol oxygen,". Associates said early loclaj Piantanida was breatb'ng a hit ensier, was moving some, and his condition was somewhat less critical. Miss E, M. Frisby, a meteor- ologist for Raven Industries, said Piantaniria suffered in the very Ihin air 11 miles up a re- action roughly opposite to "bends" suffered by deep-sea divers in too-fast changes in depth. In the bends, bubbles form in the blood. Marvin McCaii, a pressure suit technician for the U. S. Air Force, said it was fortunate the balloon had nol gone higher. "A decrease in pressure acls just like heat, and blood boils just like water at 60,000 feel altitude," McCall said. Piantanida's first attempt to break the free fall record was made in October 1965 and ended at St. Paul, when the balloon ruptured on asccnl. The second e f f o r t , from Sioux Falls in Jan- uary, failed when he was unable to free his oxygen supply after reaching an unofficial world's altitude record of 123,800 feet. Platanida rode the gondola to earth safely. A fciv days ago, as he pre pared for the third try, Pianta. nida said he would continue lo bring." The court's vole was 5 to 4. In another case the Supreme Court affirmed a lower tri- bunal's ruling that Texas may not make payment of a $1.50 poll tax a condition to voting .n local elections. A three-judge U.S. District court in Austin, Tox., on Feb. 9 ruled the a n n u a l Texas levy vio- lated the U.S. Constitution's due process of law guarantee. On March 24 the Supreme Court ruled that imposition of pol taxes as prerequisite to voting in slate and local elections vio. lates the Constitution. Waggoner Carr, Texas alter ney general, in an April 14 ap. peal to the Supreme Court saic he believed the issue was set lied by the high tribunal's March 24 decisions, in two Vir ginia cases. But he said the stale's attorneys did not agree with the legal principles an nounced March 24, and, if the Supreme Court did not act on their appeal Texas would be withoul a valid voter regislra lion system for the 1967 election unless a special session of the Legislature is called bcfon Oct. 1. ndonesia ?lans Curbs )n Sukarno JAKARTA, Indonesia ( A P ) -- he long dormant Indonesian arliament met today amid peculation that it would lay the roundwork for moves to curb "resident Sukarno's powers fur- her.

It Is to meet in 0 days. The talk in Parliament today ad an unusual flavor of inde- pendence. One speaker said iey should show Sukarno that 'we are not below the president iut beside him." Another pro- 'Osed an elected chairman to eplace the one appointed by lukarno. About 2,000 students massed mder banners and flags and :hanted at the doors of the building.

(AP) -- On a ote of high hope, representa- ves of an expanded array of merican Christian bodies met Dday at a decish'e crossroads Vlental Health Week Designated .PIERRE (AP) -- Gov. Nils Soe has designated the current week as mental health week and May as mental health month in South Dakota. He called upon South Dako- ans to help the mentally ill by working with the South Dakota Mental Health Association for mprbved care and trealment of mental hospital patients. Currently, Boe said, many mental hospital patients are be- ns denied the chance for re- covery because the facilities lack adequale staff, equipment and medical supplies. Boe also designated May as senior citizen month. He noted .hat South Dakota has more than 70,000 persons over Ihe age of 65 and the state has one of he nation'* top longevily rec ords. on their way toward a unified church. Before them, for the first time, was a specific outline for union -- described by one churchman as a "new design" for American Protestantism. The chairman of the commis- sion which drew it up, the Rev. Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, chief executive officer of the United Presbyterians, said he is "more optimistic" than ever before about the prospects. With two additional denomin- ations joining the talks for the first time, eight major commun- ions now are involved with a total of more than 24 million members. The consultation on church un- ion has been gong on for fvc years, but not unlil this session has there been a defnite draft plan on the agenda. Also heightening Ihe scope and drama of the affcir was the entry of the African Methouisl Episcopal, Church (predomi nantly Negro) and t the Presby- erian Church U.S. (Southern nd mainly while). Besides Ihe, Iwo new bodies, thers involved are the Metho- isls, Episcopalians, Christians Disciples), Uniled Church (in- luding Congregationalists), Ev- ngelical Urilecl Brethren and United Presbyterians. The proposed plan allows for wide diversity in worship forms ut provides for linking of min- stries and work. It would af- irm the Apostles' and Nicene rceils and uphold the Bible as 'the norm" of Ihe church's lo- al life and the yardstick of all ts doctrines.
