Cutters Search for Cargo Plane ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Two U.S. Coast Guard cutters were searching today for a huge C124 Ah- Force cargo plane believed down with nine men aboard in the vlcintiy of the rugged Kenai Peninsula's southeastern tip. A Coast Guard spokesman at Kodiak said the cutter Storls was dispatched from Kodiak, and the Sedge was sent out from Cordova. The Globemaster plane was Inst heard from as it approached Homer, 125 miles southeast of here, for an emergency landing with two of its four engines out. It never arrived at Homer, which is at the base of a 5,200-foot mountain range. The Coast Guard said the plane had radioed its trouble and an amphibious plane intercepted it. The escort plane, however, lost the Globemaster because of bad weather. The stricken transport, according to the Coast Guard, was flying at low altitude, barely high enough to clear the snow-covered peaks. Officials theorized the pilot might have turned back to sea and ditched in the Gulf of Alaska. PICK YOUR SPOT...

FILIBUSTER (Continued from Page 1) thirds of the senators present and voting. With the defeat of the Douglas amendment, its supporters planned to throw their strength behind an amendment under which filibusters could be choked by three-fifths of the senators present and voting. They insisted that this amend ment, proposed by Sen. Thruston Morton (R-Ky), stood a real chance of adoption. However, senators backing the Johnson compromise were confident that it would prevail. Feared Change During the debate Johnson told Douglas tartly he believed all sen ators feared the Illinois senator's proposed rules change, although some were prepared to vote for it. In the final speech before the vote, Douglas called Johnson's proposal "a meaningless gesture" and said "it's effect will be to fool the American people into thinking they are getting something when they are getting nothing at all." Interrupted Johnson interrupted to say he never had called it a compromise. He pointed out that it had 40 spon sors. The Senate met at 10 a.m (EST), two hours early, in an effort to get the dispute out of the way. In debate on the Douglas amendment Johnson expressed confidence that the outcome of the fight over the rules "will be a fair reflection of the will of the Snate and the will of the nation." Johnson said senators who wanl debate limitation by majority vote as well as those who are opposec to any change in the existing rule can wovk their will if they can get their colleagues to go along with them. He is sponsoring, along with Senate leaders of both parties, a compromise under which filibus ters could be shut off and issues forced to a vote by two-thirds ol the senators present and voting Sen. Everett M Dirksen (R-I11), the Senate minority leader, also appealed for approval of the com promise resolution. He describee it as the reasonable course to fol low. Some Hope Johnson told reporters before the start of the session he saw some hope for a final showdown vote on the whole issue before nightfall. "We do not have a filibuster on our hands and we're not going to have one, as far as I can see,' he said. Southern senators who • are op posed to any change in the present rule could have launched a fili buster against taking up the proposals to alter it. But instead they consented to an agreement limit Complete and impressive funeral services at moderate prices ing debate on amendments to Johnson's proposed compromise. 'Out-Maneuvered' Sen. Jacob K. Javlts (R-NY) told the Senate in a brief speech that there had been many assertions the liberals had been "outmaneuvered, outgeneraled, badgered and generally defeated" in the rules battle. But he said he did not believe this to be the case, contending that liberals had succeeded in establishing their main point—that decisions in the fight over the rules should come on majority vote. The proposal for debate limitation by majority vote was offered by Sen. Paul H. Douglas (D-I11) for a coalition of Northern and Western senators led by himself and Sens, Hubert Humphrey (D- Minn), Jacob K. Javits (R-NY) and Clifford P. Case (R-NJ). In Form of Amendment It was in the form of an amendment to a resolution fay Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas under which filibusters could be shut off by two-thirds of the senators present and voting. Even before the vote on the Douglas amendment, its sponsors conceded it had virtually no chance of adoption. But they had higher hopes for another amendment by Sen. Thruston Morton (R-Ky), which would allow a debate cutoff by three-fifths of the senators present and voting. Case said he believes the three- fifths figure has a real chance of adoption, and Vice President Nixon was represented during the weekend as believing that it stands a better chance of Senate approval than any other, Expects Adoption But Sen. Everett Dirksen (R-I11) the new Senate GOP leader, said in a television interview Sunday he expects Johnson's proposal to be adopted. He said he based that view on checks with members of both parties. Both Dirksen and Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont), the assistant Democratic leader, predicted also the present Congress will pass some civil rights legislation, but did not say what they expected. Johnson's resolution has the backing of top Senate leaders of both parties, except for Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (R-Calif), the new GOP whip, or assistant leader, As Compromise It was designed as a compromise between Southern senators opposed to any change in the present rule and the coalition of Northern and Western senators demanding debate limitation by majority vote.. On a first test vote on Friday, antifilibuster forces went down 'to defeat by lopsided 60-36 count. Both Case and Javits issued weekend statements contending that Johnson's resolution would make so little difference in attempts to shut off filibuster* that it was meaningless. They also said that one feature of it, providing that the rules of the Senate shall continue in effect from one Congress to another, would be a backward step that! would make future changes in rules more difficult.

Worst Snow of the Season Hits Europe LONDON (AP) — The heaviest snowfalls of Europe's winter blocked highways, stranded travelers and marooned whole communities today. Snow lay over all Britain and almost all of the Continent. Britain, whipped by blizzards in the north and floods in low-lying East Anglia, seemed to have caught the worst of it. Abandoned cars, trucks and buses were, scattered on roads up and down the country. Belgium lay completely covered with snow. The north of Italy froze. Heavy snow in the Vermig- Ho area drove deer from their forests to seek food in the valleys. Deep snow lay across northern Germany. Strong winds built drifts, blocking some roads. Heavy falls over parts of Den mark halted traffic on main roads. Eastern Norway had its heavi est fall of the winter. Paris awoke under a light coat of snow. The snow ranged up to three feet in parts of eastern France. On the Riviera, the sun came out, but the air was freezing cold.

KIDNAP (Continued from Page t> color of her hair from platinum blonde to its present color With a home bleach treatment, several days ago, McCabe said. Arranged Her Hair Hospital attendants had described the kidnaper as a silvery blonde. Mrs. lavarone said she changed the hue because of a personal whim, the prosecutor said. The penalty for kidnaping, when the child is recovered alive, is 20 years to life in prison. First positive identification of the baby was announced by the FBI, quoting the father, Frank. Chionchio, 28, a lawyer for the Port of New York Authority, said he recognized the baby on the basis of a "general family resemblance" and a small scar over tho left eye he had noticed the night the baby was born. "I feel very happy," Chionchio said as he left the hospital to rejoin his wife, Frances, 26. She has been staying with her parents in Brooklyn. Footprints Match Leggett said the baby "certainly" is the Chionchio child. He indicated the footprint of the baby found in the apartment matched the footprint of the Chionchio baby taken shortly after birth. He said the comparison was "okay.' The blood type of the baby was identical with that of Mrs. Chionchio, the FBI said, but did not correspond to Mrs. lavarone's. Leggett said medical examination showed that Mrs. lavarone did not bear a child nine days ago. He said the woman took "good care" of the baby. "She had plenty of experience caring for children of her own," he said. Officials at St. Peter's said the baby weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce when it was returned to the hospital. The Chionchio infant weighed 7 pounds at birth.
