WASHINGTON (AP)-Spokes- mon for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops give no hint on when a decision will be an^ nounced on the question of abolishing or modifying the Church's rule against eating meat on Fridays. Tlie Cleveland Plain Dealer said today it learned from reliable sources that the bishops already have voted on the issue and that 75 'per cent approved abolishing the rule. The paper said final wording of the document had held up its release. But Archbishop Philip M. Hannan of New Orleans, presiding at a news conference Wednesday, could not say when the decision would be announced. He said he had been a 'poor prophet" In indicating action would be taken earlier in the week. A committee report on the subject has "elicited a great deal of comment," he said. "We have no cloture rules." The conference took steps Wednesday toward giving priests and laymen a greater role in high-level church affairs. The prelates announced a resolution had been adopted looking toward creation of a national pastoral council for the Church in the United States. The new organization would include priests, rnonks, nuns and laity and would be similar to pastoral councils which assist individual bishops. The conference of 215 bishops, archbishops and cardinals, called to carry out changes wrought at the second Vatican Council in Rome, ends Friday.

By MARY CAMPBELL NEW YORK (AP) — Les Ballets Africalns from the Republic of Guinea opened on Broadway Wednesday night amid a stir over whether a city ruling about •"topless" applied. The ruling, which bans topless waitress costumes, was held to apply for a preview performance Tuesday night. However, Mayor John V. L,indsay said before the opening that the ruling need not apply and he didn't know who had ordered the women dancers to wear blouses for the preview. Women did appear bare above the waist in some of the dance sequences, but there was nolii- ing salacious about the opening night performance. Its tone was the Idnd of exciting dignity which athletes achieve when they do something superbly and unselfconsciously, causing enjoyment to themselves and everyone who sees them. ST.

He can't say enough for the stuff. Take Thursday night. He loolted at the big, fancy cake turned out by the White House chef for the 32nd anniversary of Joiinson's marriage to Lady Bird. "It is pretty," he said, "but I think I will have to have tapioca." It was that way all day at Bethesda Naval Hospital. In his hospital suite, the convalescent President told reporters he couldn't remember his menu — but "I know I had tapioca." And off he went: "Tapioca has less calories than any other dessert that you can get and it has great advantages when it is made with skim milk and Suca- ryl." He said it is easy to make, filling, satisfying and low On calories. By Johnson's account, a heaping cup of tapioca has 109 calo­ rics; a serving of ice cream has 200 to 250. At his anniversary party, Johnson sent for a dish of leftover tapioca and fed spoonfuls to reporters, pointing out the calorie count. He said Zephyr Wright, the family cook, makes tapioca for him in big batches, and puts it up in containers. Farm Bureau Seeks State income Tax CHICAGO (AP) - The Illinois Agricultural Association has come out in favor of a flat rate state income tax on individuals and partnerships. The proposal, voted Thursday at the lAA's 52nd annual convention, would limit the tax to 5 per cent maximum. It also was tied to a condition that "a substantial portion of the revenue be returned to local taxing bodies to relieve personal property and real estate taxes." The lAA also urged legislation to provide guidelines for reapportionment of local governmental agencies and legislative districts. The guidelines, an lAA resolution said, "should permit county boards, or the boards of other governmental agencies, to establish districts and provide for election of one board member from each of such districts." Some 3,000 members attended the four-day meeting, at which NEW YORK (AP)--State Supreme Court Justice Matthew M. Levy today ordered Rep. Adam Qayton Powell, Harlem Democrat, to surrender to the sheriff on Nov. 23 to begin serving a 30-day jail term for criminal contempt of court. In his order. Levy said Powell would be liable to an additional 60-day term if he defaulted in paying a $500 fine which was part of the sentence imposed on Nov. 4. Powell was reported today to be in the Bahamas. The Harlem minister and congressman was told to give himself up at 10:30 a.m. at the Court House on Nov. 23. A Supreme Court jury found that PoweU had willfuUy failed to answer five court directives and orders last Oct. 10. Later, Levy found Powell guilty of criminal contempt for breaking two of the five directives. Last Sunday Powell returned to New York to celebrate his 38th year as pastor of Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church. The order for his arrest for criminal contempt had not been signed at that time. If Powell surrenders, he would be lodged in the civU jail in Manhattan, where most of the inmates are serving sentences growing out of marital litigation. Powell's troubles stem from his failure to pay a $164,000 libel judgment he owes Esther James, a 68-year-old Harlem widow. A jury found in 1963 that he had defamed her by calling her a "bag woman," or graft collector for corrupt police, on a television show tliree yetirs earlier. I Through her attorney, Raymond Rubin, Mrs. James has made a relentless effort to collect the judgment, but PoweU has refused to even submit to a financial examination to determine whether he could pay it Chopper Falls In Sea; Two Missing SAN DIEGO, Calif.
