WINS RENOMINATION-The rural elements in the Republican State Convention in Indianapolis Tuesday overwhelmed the city delegates in a major struggle for the post of treasurer. State Treasurer Robert E, Hughes poses with -his family after winning renomination. With the . Greenwood incumbent are his wife, Marie, and their children, Maureen, 6, Michael, 11. (UPI) Cass Support For Hughes Big Surprise Cass county's delegation provided one,of the major surprises of he Republican state convention Tuesday afternoon by voting for Robert Hughes of Greenwood for itate treasurer. Hughes, who won the nomina- ion by a vote of 1,526 to 979, received Cass county's support for wo good reasons despite the fact hat he was the man who filed t the last minute two years ago o wrest the nomination for state reasurer from Clyde R. Black of bis city. THE REASONS were: 1,. Black wants to run for state reasurer again in 1964 ant lughes cannot run for a thin erm so it will be much easier for he local candidate to win the lomination in a field of new can idates, Had Clarence Drayer, o ndianapolis, Hughes' opponent xor\ the nomination and election e would-be virtually impossible 0 beat in his bid for rcnomina ion to a second term. 2. H. Dale Brown, Indianapo< s political boss, the same per- on who played, a key role in fil- ng Hughes at the last minute gainst Black two years ago,- wa; esponsible for Drayer filing a' ie last minute this time. In help- ng defeat Drayer, the Cass dele- ates felt this would tend to dis- ourage last-minute candidacies 1 future years. ALTHOUGH they weren't lusiastic in their support ol iighes, the Cass delegates gain- d some consolation from the fact lat they at least were settling an Id score with Brown. Tippecanoe county also went xorigly for Hughes despite a re- orted deal in which, the second istrict's support for Drayer had promised in exchange for In. ianapolis support of Alvin Cast or superintendent of public :ruction. Scientists Reveal New Space Suit LOS ANGELES (UPI)- Scien- sts today disclosed space suits sulated with a quilted blanket ' water as protection against ra- ation and an engine with the irust of a Fourth-of-July rocket ir launching huge spacecraft, Also revealed at a conference about 2,000 leading scientists nd engineers was a means of aking a lunar landing in a mall Vehicle from a spaceship rbiting 100 miles above the oon. In a paper issued at the con- rence of the Institute of Aero- ace Sciences, Dr. George R, rthur, of General Electric's mis- le and space vehicle division, eported on the spaceman's water ianket. He. said it would be part of an uminum and plastic "personal lielding system" to protect as- o'nauts during flight from solar ares; which release clouds cf •otons and raise radiation dur- space flights to dangerous vels. The heads of the spacecraft •ew, he said, would be protected removable aluminum and glass overs which would not impair sion. The back and foot areas ould be shielded with berated olyethylene blocks — and the des with aluminum plates. With such armor, astronauts ould pull a quilted water blan- et up over themselves from a orage space under their feet to jmplete the enclosure. Slits in e water blanket would permit e crew to reach out to the con- ol console. General Electric also disclosed at huge interplanetary space- weighing hundreds of tons robably would be propelled by ectric engines developing about much thrust as a one-pound ourlh-of-July Rocket. Arnold D. Cohen, of the com- any's missile and space vehicle vision, said electric propulsion ngines would exceed high-thrust chemical or nuclear rockets "for sheer ability to transport high tonnages to Mars and beyond— once the spacecraft is in an orbit of the earth." .Cohen said electric engines still were in the laboratory stage, but would "come.into their own after the more conventional high-thrust chemical rocket systems are able to launch more than 15,000 pounds into a low earth parking orbit."

Women in the Communist zone were said b comprise at least 90 per cent of clothing industry workers, 7( per cent of textile workers, an.J 13 per cent of those employed by (lie iron and steel industry. Male worhers, a large percentage of than professionals and technicians, have been fleeing the Communistic society of East Germany ever since the country was divided. The exodus reached record proportions during the weeks preceding election of the Cormnu. nists' anti-refugee wall last Aug.' 13. The fortified and guarded wall sharply reduced the flow of refu ; gees to the Vest, although a few get through liy devious means occasionally.
