Six Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Defense Chief to Face House Group WASHINGTON (UPI)—Defense Secretary Robert S. MCNamara readied himself today for some stiff questioning over a newly developing dispute between him and Congress. McNamara was scheduled to testify before a special House armed services subcommittee. The subcommittee wants to know whether agencies in the Defense Department that embrace all the services have been effective. Members of the full committee, including Chairman Carl Vinson, D-Ga., have become concerned TROPHY WINNER — Pat O'Connor was awarded a trophy for outstanding (eats in baseball for three years during graduation exercises Sunday at St. Joseph's college, Rensselaer.

He was graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing. Leslie Irvin To Testify SULLIVAN-, Ind. (UPD-Leslie Irvin was to testify today at his murder trial in the legal battle over the admissibility as evidence of confessions he made to three murders and 13 burglaries. "I want him to tell his story," said defense attorney Marion Rice who moved, for a mistrial last week in connection with the testi- money of Evansville Detective Capt. Dan Hudson. Hudson was brought to the stand as the state sought to .enter into evidence tape-recorded confessions made by Irvin to the murders and 'burglaries. Rice said Hudson's tes- "timony would be prejudicial to Irvin. Rice said Irvin was coerced into making the confessions in which he gave details of the murders. He, has said police told Irvin he would be extradited to Kentucky to stand trial if he did not confess, and he quoted officers as saying Indiana courts would be easier on him. Irvin is on trial in Sullivan Circuit Court for the murder of W. Wesley Kerr, 29, an Evansville service Station attendant, during a robbery Dec. 23, 1954. He was convicted of the murder Dec. 20, 1955, but the U.S. Supreme Court threw out the conviction last June. Irvin also had been indicted for the slayings of five other persons in Indiana and Kentucky during a six-month-crime spree in 1954. Court officials said at least one discrepancy between the tape recordings and a transcript was found, and orders were given Saturday to have all errors corrected before the start of today's session. The jury was being kept out ol flie courtroom during the arguments on the motion for a mistrial. Jiat the agencies might one day >egin dictating to the Army, Navy and Air Force. Many of the operations of the defense wide intelligence, atomic, supply, communications and na- i o n a 1 security agendes are cloaked in secrecy. McNamara, who is already em- >roiled with Congress over the BS70 airplane and the size of the 'eserves, started most of the agencies. The congressmen fear they will lead to a single service, a traditional bugaboo of Congress. Other congressional news: Censorship: Undersecretary of Itate George W.

Kites Fall Victims of Jet Age CHICAGO (UPI)— Man's pioneer space venture — the kite— :ell victim to the jet age today. That ancient and honorable instrument that aided Benjamin Franklin's discovery of- electric- iy, and which the Chinese have sported for 3,000 years, is taboo, near airports. A new Federal Aviation Agency aw, effective today, bans all kite lying within a five mile radius of any airport. Sunday about 120 children gathered in Grant Park for the Windy City's "first and last kite rally" sponsored by Chicago businessman Irving Padnos. The children were given kites an<J prizes were awarded for the ones that soared the highest and, remained aloft the longest. . Three police squad cars appeared at the rally shortly after it began in response to a com- plainb-by the FAA. As the officer approached the kite-fliers, a 5- year-old boy tugged at the night stick of one of the officers and asked, "Mr. Policeman, why can't I fly my kite?" Several minutes later four of Chicago's finest were flying kites. • Most of"the youngsters met the news of the kite ban with disbelief. One parent said he felt the law was unconstitutional—that the public had no representation before the FAA. "The FAA claims kites are a danger to aircraft," said Padnos, "yet there's no record of a kite causing an airplane crash." The FAA edict, however, was not the first law against kite fly- •ing. During the, Ming dynasty in China a law prohibiting kite flying by the common people was issued. Only the nobility could "go fly a kite." Penalty for breaking the law was death. The new regulation, in part, states: 1. A balloon or kite may not be operated closer than 500 feet from the base of any cloud; 2. More than 500 feet from the ground; 3. Within five miles of the boundary of any airport. The new law also required that mooring' lines for kites and balloons must have colored pennants or streamers at not more than 50 foot ' intervals during daylighl hours. It also forbids operation of a kite or balloon during hours ol DALLAS (UPI) — Democrat John Connally will face Demo- crat-turned-Kepublican Jack Cox in Texas' November gubernatorial election in what promises to be a bitter, no-holds-barred battle.
