INDIANA SUNDAY, MAY 27,1902 Honeymoon's on Uncle Sam OFFUTT AFB, NEB. - Newlyweds Frank and Natasha Selph are honeymooning in Spain this year and Uncle Sam is picking up the tab. When they return to the States in a few years, they will set up housekeeping with every kind of assistance from a solicitous government. Both are in the Army Air Force. Tasha had already served more than two years of a three year hitch in the Women's Air Force when she met Frank at a Noncommissioned Officers party here. She had seen him around the base •before but Frank never seemed to have the courage to talk to her until that night. . They danced the' Cha-Cha. Tasha , backed into. a table, and her clumsiness broke Frank's shy- .ness. They continued to see each , other. On his birthday Frank gave the pretty WAF a present, an engagement ring. Guidance, Too The Air Force couple planned to be married in December, but ; when Frank received orders to •report to the central air base in ! Spain they moved the date up a few months. Following Air Force procedures, each was counseled by his' respective squadron commander, ^here were talks with the tjase chaplain. Bothe were made 'well aware of the responsibilities, financial and emotional that would be there as military man and wife. • They decided advantages out- 'weighed disadvantages. . " Happy Day Thus on the morning of October 21, 1961, a group of friends joined the parents of two Airmen First Class in the Base Chapel for the .wedding performed by Chaplain Capt. Rupert Ziegler. Natasha's 'parents arc; Mr. and Mrs. Mosea ;Lavy of Herscher, 111. • Both sets of parents had travel- 'ed over 1,000 miles each to wit- 'ness the ceremony. Held on military installation, it was nevertheless a civilian Catholic ceremony with Tasha as beautifully feminine as any bride at any altar. A. few weeks later they went home on leave to visit tho bride', groom's parents Mr. and Mrs. ; Frank Selph in Sante Fe, N. M., "before young Frank prepared to I embark on a three-year tour at •Torrejon, Spain. " Air Force, ever cooperative with ~ Cupid, reassigned the bride to •Spain shortly afterwards. Frank .'extended, his contract 18 months ;to complete his overseas- tour. •Mrs. Selph re-enlisted for four ; more years in order to be with -her husband. Home Sweet Home " After returning to the States, ASSIGNMENTS TOGETHER . . . Now newly weds Natasha and Frank pack up to begin several years of seeing the world together while serving in the United States Air Force.. CHAPEL WEDDING . . . Her Air Force uniform, was forgotten on this clay as Natasha Lavy wore the traditional bridal white for Catholic rites which united her with Airman First Class Frank Selph. they are hoping for a base assignment where they can settle down. Rank will not interfere with their married life, says Tasha. since both were promoted to Airman First Class on the same date. "If I ever do outrank Frank in the Air Force, he'll still be the man of the house," claims the bride. As for the future, Tasha hopes to have four children, but not until they are both, out of the Army Air Force and Frank has received his degree in Veterinary Medicine. He. is studying for his degree while in the "service. GOP Tightens Lines For Attack On Slush Fund In Public Works Bill : WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate ^Republicans tightened their lines " Saturday for an attack on what -one of them called a political I slush fund provision in the ad•ministration's $1.5-billion public • works bill. • The Senate will take up a mod- lified version of the bill Monday. ^Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said he expects ^passage Tuesday. ' Minority Leader Everett M. ^Dirksen of Illinois said after a .-conference with GOP members of ;the Public Works Committee he 'believes most of his party mem- "foers will vote against giving Pres- lident Kennedy standby authority -to initiate projects in a threatened .recession. ; "Republicans are for public ;works," he said, "but we are not /going to give the President' a blank check. We want these projects passed on by Congress." Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt., said in a separate interview this proposed authority represents a "purely political contrivance" which the President might use to win support for his New Frontiers program. "Just think What the President could do with such a slush fund," Aikeh said. "He wouldn't have to spend any of the money. He could just promise candidates that their districts and states would be in line for it if they went along with his legislative prpgram." • The bill represents a strategic retreat from the original request for a $2-billion standby program and $600 million in immediate projects, . The revised measure would authorize a $750-million public works It's Perfect Timing Being escorted by the , father down the aisle to the altar is a tradition for which /most brides are grateful; Too .often too many by their wedding days .are too unnerved, and exhausted from duties beforehand to be able to make it up there cm their own steam. The only solution to a beautiful ceremony .wjtb'. a ' minimum of backstage chaos is''to set up a realistic tune schedule. Broadway producers do. it — and who is to say that weddings are less'of a colorful production? A time wise bride-lists the most minute details that~mus't be- attended to before the important day.

A second provision would authorize an additional $750 : million program for the year beginning July 1, 19B3, if unemployment should reach 5 per,cent of the labor force. Under ihe latter provision,' the President could initiate projects not individually authorized in advance by Congress. . Under the weight of attacks from • Republicans and some Southern Democrats on what they call "back door spending," the administration abandoned its proposal to let the President'dip into government trust funds to finance emergency projects. It bowed to the demand that all must be financed through regular congressional appropriations. . . .

Stmdio 509 Broadway -Phone 4678 ALGIERS (AP) - Secret Army Organization terrorists exploded a lime bomb on the waterfront Saturday, rained mortar shells on a Moslem suburb and rampaged through the streets in machine- gun attacks in bloody Algiers. Weary police counted at least 17 dead and 31 wounded in the European underground's grim fight against approaching Algerian independence. But it was not known how many other casualties there were in some of the native quarters, where the Moslems care for their own. The day's Woodshed began at dawn, 'with the thunder of 29 mortar shells fired into the Moslem Belfort section in the suburb of Maison Charee. No one from the European side went to pick up the Moslem victims. The Belfort victims,were not included in the tally compiled by police. On the waterfront, a small truck loaded with about 50 pounds of explosives blasted off, killing four jersons and wounding 15. Hundreds of Moslems surged screaming out of the Ca-S'bah, several hundred yards away. They remembered all too well that a similar secret army bombing on the waterfront May 2 killed 62 Moslems and wounded more than 100. The angry Moslems were intercepted by the newly organized Moslem police force,:possibly pre venting riotous retaliation against Europeans. Stretcher-bearers of the National Liberation Front, which enforces discipline in the Moslem quar. ;ers of this tragic city, bore off the'wounded into the Casbah. Among the victims were eight Europeans. Three were carried into the Casbah for treatment. One died shortly after arrival at a makeshift Moslem clinic. Throughout the day, secret army killers machine-gunned Moslems who dared to leave their squalid quarters. Panic was beginning to grip the European population of Algiers. A score questioned at random said they intended to-leave Algeria be. fore the July 1 self-determination referendum that is expected to see the big Moslem majority vote for independence.

"Announce your engagement and then run away to be married," is the advise one bridal consultant offers to brides of 'amilies in this dilemma. ,, But ministers and marriage counselors, and also many couples who have been married secretly, agree that such unions make poor starts. 1. Gossipy people jump to the wrong conclusion about the marriage. Did they Have to get married? Did the parets disapprove? 2. Secret marriages lead to em- harassing, complicated situations whenever the couple attempts to be together. 3. Such marriage agreed to upon impulse robs a young lady of the wedding of her dreams, for which she may long harbor resentment. # * # However, as with the-poor bride of socially prominent parents, there are extenuating circumstances that make such' a ceremony a reasonable solution. A bride or bridegroom mighl wish to spare parents who are not well, or who might object to the marriage on religious grounds or who are divorced. Or they simply, may not !ike the $900; Reassesment supervisor salary, $1,500; salary of clerk 52,000; Postage, $300; traveling expense, K100. Total, $3,900.

Tax payers may appear at the meeting and have, the right to be heard on the necessity for such emergency appropriations. The Council denied similar requests a year ago in some of the depart ments. uiis of a formal marriage. Or hey simply haven't time or pafi- flce for a wedding. * * * When the marriage secret is iul, it is still possible! to make icivspaper announcements. The jr.ide's mother may also send in- 'ormal, handwritten notes to dose friends instead of formal announcements. At-homci cards are enclosed with formal announcements, usually if the couple lives out of town. Friends are not expected to send gifts to couples who elopo. However, ,'iome will do so anyway.
