(UPI)—A committee appointed to study rule changes for use of the War Memorial auditorium at Indianapolis agreed on a new set of regulations Wednesday night at a meeting here. But there was no indication the rules were relaxed to permit the Indiana' Civil Liberties Union to use the hall for its meetings. Frank V.

However, Dice said "the new rules will not permit (he desecration of the high purposes and dedication of the memorial place." That was as far as he would go in explaining what the committee agreed on. Dice said the committee met in Peru Wednesday night at the request of Governor Welsh, who is crusading for a change in rules so the ICLU can use the auditorium for the first time in nine years. Welsh was in Peru for a talk, at a Mismi County Democratic psrty fund-raiting dinner. But Wf.lsh was unable to tttend the mee'mg, after all. Commissions since 1953 have banned the ICL'U from meeting in the auditorium. Welsh has. replaced four members of the 11- man comrrittee in the last two weeks, prfsumably with men he expects id favor the ICLU in the controversy. But other changes apparenlly will have to wait until terms of current members expire, none before July, 1963. ADMIT STEALING BIRDS ST.

Astronaut Ready To 'Go 1 LANGLEY AFB, Va, (UPI) Astronaut Walter Schirra will set out on a possible six-orbit space flight in late summer "to plug some holes" before 'the United States tries to surpass the -Russian feat of 17 orbits. "I'm looking toward it very much. It's what I've been working toward for three years," Schirra told a news conference here following the announcement Wednesday, by the National Aeronautics and' Space Administration (NASA) in Washington. A six-orbit flight would be, America's longest space venture, doubling the flights "of astronauts John H. Glenn, Jr. 'and Scott Carpenter. Schirra said longer flights were necessary to "give us more time to study the systems"' oif existing spacecrafts. "We can't leap from three orbits to .24 hours (18 orbits) without trying.' to plug some holes," said the 30-year-o'ld Navy lieutenant . commander from Hackensack, N.J. NASA does not plan an 18-orbital mission until next year. 'NASA'officials said the number of orbits would depend on several Expect Cash Demand For Portuguese Base LISBON (UPI) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk today faced an unexpected Portuguese demand for a substantial cash payment, reputedly about $80.. million a year, for renewal of U.S. rights to use the strategic Lajes .air base in the Azores. The United States never has paid anything for the use of Lajes, which is a vital part of the worldwide,. NATO neliwork of bases, although existing agreements provide the multi - million dollar installations revert to Portugal when U.S. rights end. Reliable sources said the Portuguese would take full advantage of this situation with the present lease due to expire Dec. 31, A figure of. $80 million has been mentioned as the asking price, although there has been no official confirmation. Rusk arranged meetings today with both Premier Antonio Oliveira Saiazar and Foreign Minis- ler Alberto Franco Nogueira. According to advance ' indications he was in for a rough time ' over United States policies on Goa and Angola. The Portuguese press has been bitterly critical of the United States in the past few days'. Wednesday night, alter his arrival from London, a score or more students demonstrated outside .the U.S. Embassy chanting "Rusk go home" and other ami - American slogans. Portuguese newsmen reflected their hostility in the ques< tions they fired at Assistant Set retary of State for Information Robert J. Manning. Manning told them that one purpose of Rusk's visit was to pinpoint the issues over which there is, misunderstanding and try to iron them out. He said Busk believes there are fewer real disagreements between the two countries than generally is believed. AFL Defers New Franchise Action BOSTON (UPI) — The infant American Football League, fearing that a headlong rush into expansion might further weaken it, has deferred at least until fall applications, for three • new franchises. r ,i Officials of the 2-year-old circuit wound up their three-day summer meeting Wednesday by putting off franchise bids from New Orleans, Kansas City and Atlanta. The delaying action meant most likely that the. earliest AFL expansion would be .1964.

Owners announced officially that the delay was to permit further investigation of all candidates but admitted'privately that Pre-Holiday •VSMITHALSOPj 4 Days Only ^/ Low Price 100% Acrylic LATEX House Paint for all Exterior Surfaces Regular $6.75 Gallon Special 8 aocr HOUSE PAIN 1 WHITE FOR Wood Siding Wood ShinglM Plywood Maionit* AsbMtos Shinajo* Brick or Concnl* Gallon The greatest time-saving, all-purpose paint ever developed for nearly all types of exterior surfaces ... for use in any weather—rain or shine—SELF- PRIMING.

Broadway Dial 3637 they did not feel the league's cur rent player supply could withstand the demands of. stocking one or more new teams. While declining expansion because it would "cut too deeply into our player personnel," the league installed a unique draft program designed to strengthen its two weaklings. The plan, with the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos as primary beneficiaries, would make the lail-endeKS on training camp squads eligible for draft by the weaker clubs for an undisclosed but small amount of cash. Under the system, each of the eight clubs would establish lists of 35 "untouchable" players by Aug. 14. The .last-place finishers, Oakland and Denver, would get three picks each of the free agents on each squad. After that phase is completed, the league would operate a round- robin selection system wherein each of -the clubs, starting with the weakest and progressing in order through the strongest, would choose among the left overs. ; Read the Want Ads! •factors, including the condition of the astronaut during earlier orbits.
