On the Drawing Board THE BIG BABY—This is how the largest airplane in the world would look, if Lockheed Aircraft Corp. could convince the Air Force to buy their design over those of two other manufacturers competing for the contract. Designated the C-5A, the 500,000-pound jet is artist's drawing as it leaps from a short dirt.field in a forward area. SHUTTLE—This 60-passenger helicopter-type "airbus," shown in drawing, could be flying within five years,.according to Lockheed. The winged rotorcraft would operate as a short-haul transport from city center to city center. Following vertical takeoff, it would fold its rotor blades and cruise as a conventional fised-wing plane at 375 in.pJi. -And Off Refuses to print Utt's statement SACRAMENTO (UPI) - The Assembly today refused to permit a California congressman's statement calling for the impeachment of Gov. Edmund G. Brown to be printed in the lower chamber journal. But, after lengthy debate during which Speaker Jesse M. Unruh directed the statement to be read to all members, it did authorize printing of excerpts bemoaning the current lack of strawberry workers. During the discussion, Unruh also defended U.S. Labor Secretary W. WUlard Wirtz as "an innocent victim of our stupidity." The statement had been read on the floor of Congress by Rep. James B. Utt, an Orange County Republican. It started out with a long dissertation about the "catastrophic" farm labor conditions. Then Utt's statement said he had asked President Johnson to dismiss "Wirtz for "inept handlmg" of the situation and had also requested four California legislators to bring impeachment proceedings against Brown for "criminal neglect and criminal waste of food." Assemblyman Robert E. Badham, R-Costa Mesa, asked that the statement be printed in the journal. Later, Badfaam added he and the other three legislators had "no intention" of trying to impeach Brown. REVOLUTIONARY—XV-9A Hot Cycle research aircraft, built by. Hughes Aircraft Division, is shown in hovering pose on its first flight. It derives its power from hot gases jetted through tips of the rotor blades, eliminating gear boxes.

It recently Jiit 201 m.p.h., believed tops in its class. The Red Air Challenge Although Communist forces in Southeast Asia have shown a preference for ground warfare, both the Chinese and North Vietnamese "are known to be equipped with Russian designed MIG-15 and MIG-17 jet fighters of Korean War vintage. Peking is also known to have some MIG-19s and MIG-21s. The advanced Soviet tighter, the MIG-25, which has a top speed of 1,700 miles per hour and a ceiling of 65,000 feet, has not been seen outside Russia. A vast array of sophisticated American aircraft should assure us of air superiority in Viet ^am, but the Red fighters can be troublesome, especially in guerrilla style hit and run attacks. Known by the code name Fagot, this plane was de• veloped by the Russians . in 1947, flown by the Chinese in the Korean War. ! Top speed, 670 in.p.h.; ' ceiling, 50,000 feet.

Taxes—Revenue and Taxation Committee approves tax program authored by Speaker Jesse Unruh and Assemblyman Nichola C. Petris. Quote of Day WEST HEMPSTE.'^.D, N.Y.- Tlie Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. describing rejection of the anti-poll tax amendment to the voting rights bill as "tragic": "It is appalling to me that there were not enough men of courage in the Senate of the United States who would stand up and vote for it." Quick action represents departure in U.S. policy By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Having arrived in Saigon from New York via the Pad fic, the traveller can, if he wishes, with the addition of about $30, keep right on going and return to New York via the Atlantic. It is, in short, a long way from home, about equidistant either way. To one just returned from South Viet Nam, as in the case of this correspondent, the distance in time and space seems greater than it really is. In South Viet Nam, the newsman fmds himself totally immersed in the atmosphere of a long drawn-out and frequently contradictory war. Events elsewhere seem far away indeed. Sense of Shock But since space can be covered quickly, the actual distance from Saigon to New York is less than a day and a half. The transition from a war in Viet Nam to a news desk in New York deeply concerned with a crisis in the Dominican Republic contributes to a sense of shock. Quick adjustment is required when an acquaintance remarks: "If Eisenhower had done in Cuba what Johnson is doing in the Dominican Republic we wouldn't have this Cuban mess now." Well, maybe. A great deal of political innocence accompanied Fidel Castro's take-over of Cuba from Batista dictatorship. In fact, in most quarters it was greeted with cheers, disillusionment came later. Timing of Essence For any leader, timing is of the essence. At the time of the Bay of Pigs fiasco, U.S. public opinion was running high and might have supported a U.S. invasion of Cuba. But the psychological moment passed. Patience is pot notably an American quality. Action is preferred to reaction. And now a parallel may be drawn between the war in Soutli Viet Nam and the U.S. action in the Dominican Republic. The U.S. decision to send its air power against North Viet Nam and the quick action which sent American Marines into tlie Dominican Republic both represented departures from previous poUcy. Probably it can be said that favorable U.S. public reaction was the direct outgrowth of a long standing sense of frustration over the failure to eliminate Communist Cuba and the fact that the war in South Viet Nam was going nowhere. Positiva Policy Whatever the possible future consequences, at least they represented a positive pohcy. In its international relations, U.S. pohcy remains one of collective action ^through the various treaties — NATO, SEATO and in Latm America through the Organization of American States (OAS). These were treaties designed for conditions far different than exist today. They sought to set up collective defense against direct attack. But the Communists agamst whom they were directed learned a lesson m Korea. Communist emphasis shifted from threats of open aggression to subversion. Efforts to employ old treaties against the new methods have not met with great success, and mcreasingly the effort to contam Communism has fallen upon the United States. Executive Register shows many men bi-lingual By JESSE BOGUE UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — Have language, will travel. This could be the motto of a high percentage of today's sales and marketing executives, who, however successful they may be in then- present positions, are looking for new opportunities—at more pay, of course. About three-fifths of the 4.838 executives in this field who have deposited resumes with E.xecutive Register, Inc., speak at least one foreign language; nearly three fourths say they have contact with foreign markets and know something about sales overseas. ER is a confidential clearing house for men seeking job opportunities, or examining the prospects, at companies other than those presently employing them. It reviews the resumes against tlie demands presented by major companies, and like most such agencies seeks to match up the two for mutual benefit. In an examination of resumes in the sales and marketing field, ER President William F. Breitmayer said that they included only those in the $12,000 to more than $100,000 a year range, indicatmg that the top executives show the trend of United States businessmen toward concern with sales abroad as well as at home. As for education, 84.3 per cent have at least a bachelor of arts degree. More than one in six has a master of arts degree as well, and 1.6 per cent can call themselves ph. d. Actual experience in the international field is claimed by 23.1 per cent of those who have filed with the organization. More than one man in five speaks French; about one in six speaks Spanish or German. Other languages are claimed by smaller percentages. Southernmost Cape -Africa's soutliemmost point generally is considered to be the Cape of Good Hope, but Cape Agulhas actually deserves that credit. Agulhas, which parts the waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, lies 32 miles farther south. Jet Fighter Combat First large-scale combat between jet fighters occurred during the Korean War. In the engagement, U.S. F-86 Sabrejets claimed the destruction of 800 MIGs as against the loss of only 58 Sabrejets. PUT YOUR CAR IN EXPERT HANDS.

(UPI) — The Secm-ity Council was set today to defeat two f- forts to gain a U.N. role m the Dominican crisis. A third resolution to leave Ihe crisis formally to the Organization of American States was developing. The council was scheduled to resume its Dominican debate this afternoon. A morning session was scheduled to give Portugal a chance to defend itself agamst charges by Senegal that Senegalese territory has been violated from Portuguese Gyinea 16 times in tlie past two years. Portuguese delegate Bonifacio de Miranda, sent here by Lisbon for the council debate, said after hearing Senegalese Ambassador Osmane Soce Diop present his country's case Wednesday that the charges were "completely baseless and unwarranted." De Miranda promised a complete reply to day. CABNIVAL By Dick Turner "Oh, I'm sure the woman you have in custody couldn't be my wife. Sergeant!

The attorney general said the Justice Department still has hopes of prosecuting Ku Klux Klansman Collie Leroy Wilkms Jr. in connection with the Alabama highway slaying of Mrs. Viola Liuzzo, a 38-year-old civil rights worker from Detroit. A hung jury brought a mistrial last week at Hayneville, Ala., in the trial of Wilkins for murder.

The increases, roughly 2.75 per cent, were recommended by city administrative officer C. Erwin Piper and the council's finance and personnel committees to bring city salaries up to those paid in private business and industry. The lukes will become effective July 1 if Mayor Samuel W. Yorly signs the measure. of violating an injunction prohibiting adults from meeting with school children during school hours. Six other persons were arrested on charges of allowing their children to be absent from school to participate in civil rights activities. Demopolis Police Chief Albert Cooper said the situation was "quiet," and the arrests came as his officers watched a church where past marches have originated. Officers moved in. Cooper said, when Negroes attempted to march without a parade permit. The Alabama Senate Wednesday gave Gov. George Wallace a victory by approving a resolution urging schools to put off meeting federal desegration demands.
