The Navy pulled the scheme because pictures taken through a submarine's periscope of the spy ship's operations were not too good. Sources said U.S. planes, ships and submarines had been shadowing Ihe Russians but always crews in a playful found the mood.

'But 1 American ingenuity finally produced for the Navy the pictures needed. Neptune patrol planes made sweeps on exact schedules with no attempt made to hide the fact that the planes were on a photographic mission. The Russians fell for the Irick, They would hide their equipment at the scheduled time and slai't playing volleyball for the Neptune photographers. "One day," a Navy source said, "the Neptune made his usual before-lunch visit, circled the ship, shot his pictures and left jusl: as he always had done. After disappearing over the hori/.on and loafing around for half an hour the plane came back, belly on the deck and so low the napping Russians missed him in their radar. "We caught them with their Ned Grayson, chairman of the homecoming, said estimates of the crowd increased to about 30,000 and prompted the committee to change the location from Spring Mill Stale Park near Mitchell to an industrial plant complex at the edge of town. The new site is the grounds of the LcHigh Cement Co. It will be Grissom's first visit home since he made space history by being the second of the astro- some wonderful pictures, too, one showing a Russian sailor shaking his fist at the plane."

(UPI)-A twin-engine DCS plane owned by Indiana University and carrying President Herman B Wells landed at the Kalamazoo airport today with one engine out. The plane circled the airport for about five minules while firefighting equipment and rescue trucks assembled at positions along the runway. But the precautions were unnecessary. The pilot managed a perfect landing on a single engine. Sharp Rally in Slock Trading NEW YORK . (UPI) — Tape watchers saw "flash"-prices for the first time in a week today as the slock market rallied sharply in the second hour following an earlier selloff. High speed tickers ran' about 15 minutes lale at the noon hour as volume billowed out on the're- covery. Although the trading was heavy most brokers termed the new .selling climax "mild" in comparison with others in the recent past. Many blue chips converted ear- y point losses into gains of frac- ,ions or more by noon time. Some of (he features were Eastman Kodak, American Telephone, Procter & Gamble and Allied Chemical up at least 1 each. Electronics were the market's most vigorous issues in the inilial rallying phase. IBM was ahead as much as 4 'and Lilton, Beckman, .Texas Instruments and Zenith at .least 2. Although the latest "flashes" near the noon hour indicated that prices were once- again sliding from their recovery highs, steels looked narrowly mixed along with leading autos and oils and most chemicals' were. up. Rail's and utilities were well scrambled. Good fractional gains developed i a number of stores, aircrafts, foods, and metals. The general list also looked fmctionaliy mixed. A downside standout,was.Celotex which tumbled 3% following a delayed open ing. The company has been closely related to E.L. Bruce whose .president resigned Tuesday under fire. Minneapolis-<Honeywell was ahead around 2 points, The noon Dow Jones slock averages were: Industrials 582.74, up 1.80; rail's 122.58, off 0.33; utilities 110.74, off 0.02; stocks 201.89, up 0.23. ROCK 'SPLIT' Still Hunting For 3 Escape 'Artists SAN FRANCISCO CUPD— Air, sea and ground patrols searched the San Francisco bay area today 'or three escape artists bidding : or the first known successful Dreak from Alcatrax prison. The missing convicts were John William Ahglin, 32-, and .his broth- ir, Clarence, 31, both of Montgomery, Ala.; and Frank Lee Morris, 35, New Orleans. All Ihree are convicted bank robbers who were sent to the island prison for escape attempts from other penal institutions. The yellower "rock" in San Francisco Bay, considered one of the world's most nearly escape-proof institutions, became a federal prison in 1934 for the nation's toughest convicts. Ten convicts have drowned or been killed in attempts to escape from Alcatraz and two others vanished in 1937 and were never seen again. They presumably drowned in the dangerous.,waters of the fog-swept bay. • Missed At Breakfast The Anglin brothers and Morris were last seen at 8:30 Monday night and were missed at 7 : 15 a.m. Tuesday when prisoners were lined lip oulside their cells to go to breakfast. The brothers had adjoining cells, -and Morris was four cells away. Their disappearance touched off a search by units of practically every military and law enforcement agency in the bay area Patrol boats criss - crossed the bay, helicopters swept low over the water and nearby islands, and ground units combed islands and the mainland, Await Action On TV Cable It may be several months fore the Logansport city council makes a final decision on a coin- .•onvonlion about the are still senatorial undecided al- race, 1 hough the convention is only a liltle more than a week away, a poll of the group by the Pharos- Tribune showed today. Eleven of the delegates said they had not yet made up their minds, two others said they were undecided but leaning toward Birch Bayh, five said they were definitely in favor of Bayh, and one favored Charles Boswell. Foui delegates could not be reached. SAID ONE OF Ihe undecided delegates Tuesday, "Two, months ago I thought it was no .conies' for Bayh, but I think now he is searchers thought they had sighted a raft, but it turned out to be an empty fish basket. The FBI questioned a fourth convict who was supposed to have joined Ihe escape. He said the men planned to go to Angel Island, less lhan two miles from the prison, and then to the Marin County coast another half mile beyond that. Army military police searched the wooded island throughout the day without success. Patrol boats circled the area throughout the night. Alcatraz is only a mile and a quarter from San Francisco's Marina Green—but the dividing waters of the bay are numbing cold and subject to. severe tides. About 155 prison employes continued the search on the island. Dummies In Bed The men left dummies in their beds with plaster-like faces which had been painted and' topped with hair. The "bodies," under blankets, were of blankets and pillows. Warden Olin D. Blackwell, called back to the prison from a vacation fishing trip, said the men removed the metal mesh from the eight by 12-inch ventilation openings- and used sharpened kitchen spoons to enlarge the holes in the concrete wall. They squeezed through the holes into a vertical utility pipe tunnel, climbed 30 feet to the top of the building, pried apart bars to escape through an exhaust duct, crossed the top of (he building and climbed 40 feet down a kitchen vent pipe to the ground. One of (he delegates who fa- . . vors Bayh said, "Youth is on his munity antenna television system side „ A nolher said, "I know Bayh better than Boswell and 1 There -was a brief excitement They also had to climb a 12-foot in the Angel Island area when wire to reach the bay. . Laos Peace Cheers Kennedy WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Kennedy told Soviet Premier iNikila S. Khrushchev' today he was encouraged over formation of a national government in Laos, but warned that no "untoward actions anywhere" should be allowed to disrupt the progress toward peace in Southeast Asia. The President made th e statement in response to a message received Tuesday night from Khrushchev, The Soviet leader had .hailed the new Laotian government agreement and thought other world problems might be settled in similar fashion. "I' agree that continued progress in the settlement of the Laotian problem can be most helpful in leading toward the resolution of other international difficulties," Kennedy said. "If together wb can help in the establishment of an independent and neutral Laos,, securely sustained in.this status through time, this accomplishment will surely have a significant and positive effect far beyond the borders of Laos." The President told Khrushchev he felt the formation of a national government under Prince Souvan- na Phouma was a milestone in Laotian peace efforts, particularly since Kennedy and Khrushchev met in Vienna about a year ago. He said it was equally important that participation in the Geneva conference on Laos should now press forward to complete the agreements under which the new national union has been formed. ' •"We must continue also to do our best to. persuade-all concerned in Lads to work together to this same end," Kennedy said. "It is very important that no untoward actions anywhere be allowed to disrupt the progress which has been made." The President told the Soviet leader, "You can count on the continued and energetic efforts of the government of the United States toward this end." The three factions in Laos—pro- Western, pro-Communist and neutralist — have agreed to form a coalition government pledged to neutrality and independence. But they face difficult problems such as integration of the . various armed forces. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and other officials said Tuesday .the United Stales undoubtedly would provide economic aid lo the new regime if it sincerely works toward carrying out its pledge to give the country a truly neutral government, here. City Attorney Richard Molique said Wednesday that council members are presently working on a draft of a city ordinance which would serve as a franchise to H particular firm for the establishment of such a system here. MOLIQUE DID not name the firm, but city councilmen announced at a meeting May 7 that they had decided to award the franchise' lo the Jerrold Electronics Corp, of Philadelphia. The ordinance could possibly be finished within the next month, Molique said, and "surely" within the next two months. He said a definite time could not be given as "the whole thing is in a state of flux" and the drafting of the ordinance is dependent on the availability of council members. THE ATTORNEY outlined the steps that would be taken by the council once the final form of the ordinance is determined. First, he said, the ordinance would be published in local newspapers. This would be followed by a public hearing at which residents could give their views pro and con on the proposal. Finally, Molique said. .Ihe council, after considering information presented at the hearing, would vote lo accept or reject the ordinance which, in effect, would be accepting or rejecting the antenna system for the cily. Should the ordinance pass, a pole rental agreement and details of operation would be worked out with the firm. THE INDICATION that the franchise would be awarded lo Jerrold has met opposition from two competing firms, Telesystem Services Corp., of Glenside, Pa., and the H and B Communications Corp, of Dubuque, la. The installation of a community system of any type has been opposed by a group of television service companies here and some,other residents. In a community antenna television operation, one large antenna would serve residents in the city, should they desire to pay an installation charge and monthly rates. Cables from a" master antenna would be run to homes on city utility poles. The latter would be rented by the antenna firm from tho city. |ke him bdter) but j don < t knou Cass county delegates are in a quandary, since one of the loca" delegates, Former National Com milteeman Frank McHale, has declared his support for Boswell while Governor Matthew Welsh has declared that Bayh is the man he favors. CAUGIFT between conflicting loyalties, they are reludanl to de dare themselves for either con didafe. Because of (heir natura aversion to an Indianapolis can didatc and because Welsh has con trol of most of the patronage most of those who have made choice are for Bayh. Bayh's fre quent visits to Cass county als have helped him gain suppor among the delegates. at the Jtjie 22 Democratic convention. District Chairman Jolin F. Pers and Lake County Chairman John Krupa said at a news conference in Bayh's headquarters that their endorsement was made after their delegates had heard both Bayh and Boswell. "At least 85 to 90 per cent of our delegates are for Mr. Bayh," Pers said. The district, which is composed of Lake County only, has the largest delegation to the state convention. Krupa explained that Bayh, * 34-year-old slate representative rom Terre Haute, is more accept- ble to "The New Image Movement" of Lake County than is Joswell. Krupa and Pers assumed heir party offices three weeks ago in an effort to divorce (he parly from its ties with several larty leaders indicted on federal .ax fraud and other charges. Pers cited Bayh's "past record ,n the legislature, being a young man in the field of politics, and pleasing personality" as reasons for the endorsement. Asked by a newsman if Lake County would have been for Boswell had Governor Welsh endorsed him, as he did Bayh, Pers replied: "That is 3 very hypothetical question and one I don't think I would want to comment on." Pers said lie felt that "changes made recently in Lake County have reinforced the confidence oE the voting public" in the Democratic parly. Republicans have claimed that for the first time in several decades, they have a chance of success in the county because of the conviction of former Prosecutor Metro Holovachk and other charges pending against men who had Ijeen party leaders. Pers and Krupa said they volunteered to make their endorsement of Bayh at a news conference while they were in Indianapolis on another matter. Pers, a township assessor, said he came primarily to confer with the Indiana State Tax Board. Bayh said the District endorsement and a demonstration Tuesday night al Fort Wayne staged by 4th District delegates makes him confident "of a substantial victory on the first ballot" at the convention. U.S. TEMPERATURES NEW YORK (UPI)—The lowest temperature reported lo the U.S. Weather Bureau today was 32 degrees at Duluth, Minn., and Marquette, Mich. The highest Tuesday was 106 at Presidio, Tex., and Imperial, Calif. ,, SO SAYS CA'DOU- It'll Take Political QuaketoStopBayh By EUGENE J. CADOU INDIANAPOLIS (UPl)-Former House Speaker Birch E. Bayh, Jr., will lope to victory for Ihe Indiana Democratic senatorial' nomination on June 22, unless a political earthquake should occur. He will battle against Sen. Homer E. Capeharl, who is unopposed for renomination at the GOP state gathering on June 19. That prediction is one of the easiest ever made by this political observer. It's not even worthy of being called "going out on a limb." There now is a Bayh trend which probably will verify his optimistic forecast of a lead of more than 2 to 1 over his nearest rival, Indianapolis Mayor Charles H. Boswell. • Marion Mayor M. Jack Edwards will be a bad third, if he remains in the contest, according to all indications, Appellate Judge John S. Gonas, South Bend, never will pay his state convention assessment, if his past history is repeated. Factors Are Listed Bayh's triumph has been insured by a number of factors. 1.—Governor Welsh, against the advice of a number of veteran party leaders, has lined up the potent Slatehouse patronage machine for Bayh. This organization includes'actual state payrollers, automobile license branch man- agers, sellers of supplies to the state and others who enjoy administration favors. Most of them are members of the slate committee or county chairmen and vice- chairmen, who usually control the votes of the bulk of the delegates. 2.—'Bayh is backed by Dallas Sells, president of (he Indiana AFL-CIO, and most of the Hoosier tabor chieftains who are pleased by his "liberal" platform. 3.—Boswell is suffering from the "Indianapolis curse," a firm but inane prejudice against any candidate hailing from Marion County. 4.—Boiiwell also antagonized many party leaders by saying that Welsh has the "backbone of a fishing worm" and is unfairly participating on the senatorial fracas. 5.—A number of Boswell's speeches place him almost as far to the conservative right as William McKinley, while Bayh is championing practically all policies of President Kennedy's New Frontier. 6.—Bayh has waged one of the most strenuous campaigns ever noted by the writer. For instance, he recently contacted delegates from 43 counties in nine days. 7.—'Bayh has youth—(he modern political trend is with the kiddies —and is handsome enough to appeal to female voters, even as did the late Paul V.
