Mails Air Liner Qiiided Radar Seizes by To Lost in SWOFTRAIHHEH Small Plane Gets Escort Thru the Clouds BY WAYNE TIIOMIS A great team effort in which the Midway airport tower, radar, and several air line crews joined Wednesday morning saved the lives of a private plane owner and his passenger lost over Like Michigan. The dramatic rescue required 1 hour 41 minutes. A Trans World Airlines Constellation plane with 51 persons aboard finally was directed to the private aircraft, atop a cloud layer at 14,000 feet. With further ground radio and radar assistance the TWA pilots were able to fly formation with the smaller plane and lead it to a safe landing at Joliet airport. To Admit Panic H. G. Hatt, 41, an Evans-ville Ind. undertaker, is owner and pilot of the small single engine plane, a Beech Bonanza. His passenger was Robert Rideout, 42, also of Evansville. Both admitted they "panicked" when they were lost and broadcast a " May day " call for assistance at 9:05 a. m. " The ground traffic people and that TWA crew saved our lives," Hatt "said later. "I have no experience in flying instruments. I admit I panicked. They calmed me and led me down safely." Hatt s call for nelp was heard at Midway tower. Clyde Denham, chief watch con-troler, replied. Hatt reported he " had less than 15 minutes' fuel left and couldn't fly instruments." Two Hours of Fuel Midway's radar surveillance crew, one floor below the tower, was asked to identify Hatt's plane cn the radar scope.

Warren Holtsberg at the Chicago air traffic control center, began the direct rescue efforts. " Fly northwest and we can give you a series of directions to bring you down thru the clouds," Denham said. " Don't worry; we will get another plane to fly up alongside you and lead you down."

Don Aageson, 913 McKinley st, Lockport, and his co-pilot, Wes Jacob- son, 4q6 uiac lane, tiK urove Village. ; Flying TWA's trip 596, they were just leaving Midway with 46 passengers, and 3 more crew members, bound for New York and Boston.

Pact Effective During 1961 BY LOUIS DOMBROWSKI The Brotherhood of Rail road Trainmen, which has 107,000 members, settled its wage dispute with the car riers Wednesday. The settlement followed the pattern which the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engi neers and the Order of Rail way Conductors and Brake- men agreed upon earlier this month. The union will receive a 4 per cent wage increase equal to 10.208 cents an hour over a 16 month period. One-half of the increase will take ef iect July I, tne otner on March 1, 1961. Many Jobs Covered Hourly wages now range from $2,25 to $2.84 for the workers, who include brake- men, flagmen - baggagemen. yardmasters, switch tenders, dining car stewards, and some conductors. The settlement calls for incorporation into present pay scales of the 17 cent an hour cost of living adjustment received since May, 1957, can celation of the cost of living escalator clause, and a provision to keep the agreement in effect until Nov. 1, 1961. The BRT and the nation's railroads have been negotiating on wages for 14 months. The union had demanded a pay increase of 14 per- cent. The carriers asked that the union accept a 15 cent an hour pay cut ELE Award Cited Theodore Short, chief spokesman for the carriers, said the railroads agreed to the increase because of a pre vious award to the engineers by a government arbitration board. He added: " However, in an industry Continued on iage 4, coL 4 CI Senate Approves With Only 2 W Votes 2 ESCAPE FROMlAIdermen O.lCFund Shift, Quiz Wilson VVHEATON JAIL Spring Door and Drop Out of Vindow Two teen-age prisoners escaped from the Du Page county jail in Wheaton Wednesday night by springing a steel plate on the bullpen door and shorting out the electrical locking system.

Both Polarises were aimed at targets more than 1,000 miles down range. Earlier Wednesday, a Thor-Able-Star rocket propelled two satellites into orbit and an Atlas rumbled 5,000 miles with a new nose cone. Seeks More Data A major objective of the second Polaris was to gather further data on the effect of air ejection on the missle's lnertial guidance system. Project officials announced all four shots were successful. The Atlas was the 50th fired from Cape Canaveral in the more tnan three years since testing began here on this Intercontinental range. In announcing the Atlas faster reentry and greater accuracy. The first Polaris launching was from a 563 foot, seagoing missile laboratory, the Obser vation Island, as it cruised 30 miles east of the cape. Shot from Tube A giant puff of coiripre? sed air popped the 28 foot missile : from a tube buried vertically in the deck of the ship. The solid fuel, first stage engine ignited about 70 feet above the deck. - The navy Wednesday hailed the double satellite launching the first of its kind as assurance that the United States will have an operating system of navigation satellites in 1962.

Seen Near Wheaton About 2 hours after their escape, two men answering to their description were seen running from a house at Or chard and Warrenville roads, three miles south of Wheaton Robert Nelson, the home owner, told police $500 in currency and a .30 caliber rifle, a .25 acliber rifle, and a .32 pistol had been taken, as well as ammunition for the .30 caliber rifle. Woods and Heard, who were in the bullpen with two other prisoners, are believed to have escaped about 8 p. m. The escape was discovered about 9 p. m. Victim Paralyzed Woods was arrested in Chi cago on April 5, after he had kidnaped a 32 year old mother of three children from her Medinah home in her own car, raped her, robbed her of $15, and stabbed. her five times as she fled from the Police Supt. Wilson told the city council finance committee Wednesday that crime conditions are deplorable thruout Chicago but cannot be corrected merely by adding men to the police department, as has been the "Chicago plan" of the past. Wilson won approval of his proposal to transfer $2,- 48,500 from the police sal ary account to other budget accounts in his reorganization program, altho 20 of the 34 aldermen on the com mittee subjected him to questioning during the two and quarter hour session. Unanimous Approval At the end of the session, on a voice vote motion, there were no negative votes re corded. The 20 aldermen, however, told Wilson they thought it was a mistake to take money from the salary account and not hire more policemen. The city council will be asked to approve Wilson's budget transfer plans at its meeting July 7.

" Wilson, in explaining the transfer of funds, said that in more progressive " police departments there is a larger percentage of budget for non-salary items than there is in Chicago, and that these M pro vide the tools that enable manpower to do more effec live work." Lists Budget Plans Wilson wants the money from the salary account to spend $1,000,000 for a new communications system, $450,000 for new squad cars, $150,000 for repairs to vehicles, $150,000 for furniture, similar amounts for supplies and commodities, and $47,000 for contingencies. He said the 1960 Chicago budget allots only 4.9 per cent for nonsalary items, and this transfer of funds will raise it to 8.1 per cent In 1959, he said, the Kansas City police department spent 17 per cent for nonsalary items, Cincinnati and New York spent 11 per cent, and Milwaukee 9.2 per cent.

But he said the Communists achieved this by playing on the fears of the Japanese people, "the only people who have felt the fury of atomic war."

"Details in Sports SecUonJ Premier Kishi nounced his intention to resign. He did not set a date. Kishi, beset by month-long demonstrations and riots against his government and the treaty, made his announcement minutes after American Ambassador Douglas MacArthur II and Foreign Minister Aiichiro Fujiyama had exchanged the ratification documents. ' The Kishi announcement was made by Etsusaburo Shiina, his chief cabinet secretary, after a cabinet meeting. . Should Be a Change The statement said the premier would resign because he felt there should be a change in government after the treaty became effective. "I feel there is a need for a change in the political situation, and I therefore see the necessity for me to resign," Shiina quoted Kishi as saying. Kishi had come under tremendous pressure from leftists and fanatical student groups which had rioted and demonstrated since the treaty was pushed thru the diet parliament on May 20. The climax of the violence was the cancellation last week of President Eisenhower's plan ned visit to Japan. . Most of the criticism against Kishi was directed at his methods in ramming ratification of the treaty thru the diet's lower house after the opposition Socialists had boycotted the session. On Equal Footing Kishi beli;ved the treaty would put Japan on an equal footing with the United States and erase the " inequality " of the old treaty. -"I've fought for the treaty until this day," he said, " and I rejoice with the nation at the taking effect of this historic treaty." MacArthur and Fujiyama exchanged the ratifications in a brief ceremony at Fujiyama's official residence. The American embassy was given only an hour's notice of the time , and place of the ceremony to thwart threat-'ened demonstrations and pos- sible violence by the ultra- left Zengakuren students group and other anti-government elements. Socialists Threaten The opposition Socialist party, backed by the giant communist-led Sohyo labor confederation, had announced it would consider the pact illegal and would continue to urge demonstrations until Kishi had resigned. . At the ceremony, Mac-Arthur said the treaty had
