CHICAGO TRIBUNE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1963 Editor's UDJKSJES1T of Today's News FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1963 CHICAGO It is disclosed that a number of sanitary district trustees are attempting to line up enough votes to fire Vinton W. Bacon, general superintendent. They plan to replace him in the $35,000-a-year job with Col. John B. W. Corey, a consultant to Mayor Daley and former head of procurement for the Chicago office of the army corps of engineers. Page 1 University of Chicago professors receive higher salaries than many corporation vice presidents, a report from the university indicates. Including fringe benefits, professors get an average of $21,094 a year; associate professors, $14,863; assistant professors, $11,786; and instructors, $8,909. The report is the first of its kind ever issued by the university.

Macmillan is reported to be doing well after emergency surgery performed to relieve an obstructed bladder. R. A. Butler, deputy prime minister; Lord Hailsham, Conservative leader in the House of Lords; and Foreign Minister Lord Home are believed to be the top contenders for the post. Page 1 A landslide into an artificial lake behind the Vaiont dam in Italy sends a 310-foot wall of water roaring thru an Alpine valley and takes more than 4,000 lives, authorities report. Italian rescue officials say the great wave, preceded by winds that roared like a tornado, obliterated eight villages. They also report that the slide hurled a torrent of water 800 feet over the dam and killed another 100 persons in four hamlets overlooking the 873-foot dam, the third highest in the world.

The owner reclaims the 130-pound Pyrennean mountain dog, and both are ejected from the theater. The show goes on, but it's never really the same. Page 1 Dr. Linus C. Pauling, one of the world's most vocal ban-the-bomb campaigners, becomes the second person in history to win two Nobel prizes. Recipient of the 1954 chemistry prize, Pauling is given the 1962 Nobel peace prize, not awarded last year. The peace prize for 1963 is given jointly to the International Red Cross committee and the Red Cross league. Sec. 1A, p. 2 WASHINGTON High government officials indicate that the huge United States-Russian wheat deal may climb to 375 million dollars, half again more than indicated by President Kennedy in announcing his approval of the sale. The President sends a letter to both houses of Congress in which he says he did not ignore a 1961 "sense of Congress" resolution which opposes "the export of subsidized agricultural commodities to unfriendly nations." However, the President says, the resolution is not binding on him. Charles S. Murphy, undersecretary of agriculture, discloses that wheat purchase requests are expected from Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. Page 1 The defense department announces that a sergeant who was assigned to the super-secret national security agency spied for the Russians over a two-year period. In one year, the department says, Sgt. Jack E. Dunlap, who committed suicide last July, received between $30,000 and $40,000. Officials deny, however, that the material he supplied to the Reds included United States codes and ciphers, the most sensitive items handled by the agency. Page 1 The House votes to ban a joint moon shot with Russia, as proposed by President Kennedy. However, the legislators vote 5.1 billion dollars for the program to land an American on the moon. The amendment to' the appropriations bill provides that no part of funds appropriated for the space agency shall be used for a manned moon landing in cooperation with communist countries. Page 3 Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower urges the United States to promote the split between Russia and Red China. His suggestion finds a sympathetic response among administration foreign policy officials in Washington who say the Sino-Soviet rift is a great advantage to the noncommunist world. On other matters the former President says Premier Nikita Khrushchev is still firmly committed to the communist objective of world domination and that any agreement with Russia to ban nuclear-armed satellites must be accompanied by some kind of inspection. Page 5 The Senate votes unanimously to investigate the business transactions of Robert G. Baker, secretary of the Democratic majority, who resigned last Monday. The action is taken on the demand of Sen. John J. Williams R., Del. who tells his colleagues that "the integrity of the United States Senate is at stake." The resolution is indorsed by Sen. Mike Mansfield D., Mont., the majority leader, and Sen. Dirksen R., 111., the minority leader, and approved by a voice vote. Page 4 NATIONAL Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman says in an interview at Great Falls, Mont., that the United States may export as much as 1.7 billion dollars worth of wheat in the current marketing year as a result of the decision to sell to communist nations. This quantity, amounting to about one billion bushels, would be 40 per cent more wheat than the United States has ever exported in a single year. Page 11 . United States customs officials seize a 66-pound shipment of pure heroin worth about 33 million dollars to underworld narcotics peddlers in a car crossing the border from Mexico at Laredo, Tex.

WARDEN Chicago Tribune Press Service Washington, Oct. 10 The ; House today voted 5.1 billion i dollars to rocket an American to the moon but outlawed any joint moon shot with Russia, as proposed recently by President Kennedy. Funds to blast off an American toward the moon were contained in a 13.1 billion dollar appropriations bill, the second largest to come before Congress this session. ' It will provide funds for the National Aeronautics and Space administration and 25 other independent government agencies in 19G4. The bill, which was trimmed by $100,000 on the House floor, was passed and sent to the Senate on a 302 to 32 roll call vote. A last ditch attempt to cut space funds 200 million dollars lost 192 to 145 on a roll call. Four Astronauts Present Four of the astronauts the United States has sent into outer space, John H. Glenn Jr., Virgil I. Grissom, Malcolm Scott Carpenter, and Alan Shep-pard, sat with their wives in the House members' gallery while 1 a seething floor fight raged ; over a proposal to sharply cur- i tail moon shot planning. j They left as soon as House members rejected any additional curtailment of funds for the moon shot by a standing vote 132 to 47. The House appropriations committee had trimmed 612 million dollars from the administration's moon budget before sending the bill to the House floor. Shortly after the astronauts left the House chamber, the question was raised: Had they been put in tht gallery for propaganda purposes, and who paid the cost of bringing them to Washington? Critics were told that the astronauts were in Washington to receive medals voted them last May, and their appearance in the House chamber during the debate of space funds was purely coincidental. Bars Joint Shot The amendment to the bill, was offered by Rep. Thomas M. Pelly R., Wash.. It provided that no part " of the funds appropriated for NASA shall be used in a manned moon landing in coop- ; eration with any communist, or communist dominated country. It carried first on a standing vote, 99 to 93, and later 125 to 110 as members walked by tellers. Chairman Albert Thomas R., Tex. of the appropriations subcommittee bringing the bill to the floor, said that the Pelly amendment might "invade the field of foreign affairs" and have no place in an appropriations bill. The House, however, decided to take this chance and approved the suggestion of Pelly that a joint moon shot with Russia be outlawed. Calls It a 'Moondoggle' Chairman Clarence Cannon R., Mo., of the appropriations committee called the proposed rocket to the moon, a "moondoggle," while Chairman Howard Smith D., Va., of the rules committee pleaded with members to "come down to earth." Smith cited a report Congress got this week from the general accounting office which showed a 100-million-dollar "hiincrW in th mmn shnr nlan- ning. Smith said it was due entirely "to carelessness and inadequacy in their calculations." Thomas suggested that if we know all the answers, why do we spend any money on research and development?" He said that losses are bound to occur in research into the unknown. President of Algeria to Address U. N. Oct. 18 ALGIERS.

Astronauts Have Their Day at the White House Section 1 Kennedy Awards Trophies to 7 Spacemen Chicago Tribune Press Service Washington, Oct- 10 President Kennedy today urged greater appreciation of the nation's space program and its potential benefits to the United States and mankind as he awarded the 1963 Collier trophy to America's first seven astronauts. The President spoke informally to the astronauts ani their wives at a ceremony in the White House flower garden. Hails Space Program One hundred and fifty guests, including Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, cabinet officers, and representatives of the space and aviation fields were present. In an apparent reference to critics of the Kennedy administration's multibillion dollar program to land an American on the moon by 1970, the President said that there are those who "dimly perceive" and question the value of the lunar and other space programs. He said, however, that as in the case of the airplane and the first earth satellite, the space programs of the present and future will surely be of major importance and benefit to the United States and mankind as a whole.
