Nutting made the comment as the second day of a school for bureau license branch managers began. The school opened at the State Office "Building Tuesday with managers from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th districts attending.

The commissioner explained to Air Center Aids Gus in Tight Spot' MIAMI ('UPD—Astronaut Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom was helped out of a tight spot Tuesday while piloting a jet fighter 44,000 feet over Jacksonville, Fla. Grissom, an Air Force captain, was en route from Pope Field, N.C., to Patrick Air Force Base near Cape Canaveral when the navigational equipment on his F106 stopped functioning. The suborbital spaceman notified Patrick, which in turn called Miami's Air Route Traffic'Con- trol Center. The center was able to pick up a radar emergency signal from Grissom's jet, flying a- uove a thunderstorm. The Miami center said it directed Grissom safely into range of the air base approach control, which guided the astronaut into a safe landing at Patrick. Grissom telephoned the Miami center when he landed to extend his thanks. "I don't know how I could have gotten down without you," the astronaut said. r'y A, Bacus, assistant to the maintenance supervisor, 305th A & E; and Mark D. Anway, assistant to operations, 68th AREFS. The commanders of the participating units will appoint a supervisor for the cadet who is assigned, to his unit.

The five judges who will pick the final ten airmen from Bunker Hill AFB to escort the finalists in the Miss Indiana Pageant at Michigan City, Ind,, July 6-7 have been announced. Each of the five judges are secretaries from different administrative sections on base. They are Mrs, Mary Hallock, secretary to the Commander, ' 305th Bomb Wing; Mrs. Coral Schroeder, secretary to the Commander, 305th Hombat Support Group; Miss Virginia 'Willis, secretary to the Deputy Commander of Operations, 305th Bomb Wing; Mrs. Dorothy Donoho, secretary to the Deputy Commander for Maintenance, 305th Bomb Wing; and Mrs. Dorothy DeWitt, secretary to the Commander, 827th Medical Group. Each individually selected airman is required to be single, a reporter that one of the big advantages of the new plan for having four and five-digit- license plates in 1063 will be trie closing of a loophole which is costing tax- payers'a considerable sum. "Now we have 10" different car plate fees, ranging from $7 to $12 and there is no way of idling, if a $7 .plate is on a car that requires a $12 one," he said. "But with the new plan a policeman can tell at a glance if an $8 plate is on'a car requiring a $12 one." The 1963 plates are to have a number prefix indicating county df purchase, to be followed by .either five digits, if a. small car qualifying for an $8 plate, or four digits if a regular car. which must have a $12 plate. 'Nutting said, however, that the details of the 1963 plates are not being outlined to the branch managers at the current school but will be explained in the fall. The current instruction deals primarily with proper keeping of records, as explained toy the Board of Accounts, and otter routine bureau operation. BECORD KNOCKDOWNS HOT SPRINGS, Ark.
