'Renf Supplemenf Program Needs Money To Grow 7 By JACK MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) - It's going to take a lot more investment than the $1 billion the life insurance industry has pledged for slum development if the fledgling rent supplement program is to grow into a major operation to provide poor people with decent housing.

(AP) - Gov. Ronald Reagan of California will return to his alma mater today with a library dedication speech and a dampened forefinger to test the state's political winds. Reagan, who was graduated from Eureka College in 1932, plans a role as a favorite-son candidate at the 1968 GOP presidential nominating convention. And political pundits have talked of Reagan as a serious contender for the first or second spot on the Republican ticket. Reagan is scheduled to arrive at Peoria Airport at 3 p.m. and then travel by car the 15 miles to Eureka. He plans to dedicate the college's new library at 7 p.m. after an introduction by Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, R- 111. Dirksen's junior colleague, Sen. Charles Percy, also planned to attend, but he has not been given any official duties in connection with Reagan's visit. Reagan was scheduled to leave Eureka Friday morning for Columbia, S.C., where he is to deliver another speech. posal would make it impossible for many groups to take on projects. Weaver told a reporter the result would be that the life insurance money would finance the program for the short range, while for the long range, the five per cent requirement would be "very, very damning." "To me," Yarborough said in a Senate speech, "the governor's delay in requesting the President for a declaration of disaster has been inexcusable. I know of no modern instance where the governor of an American state in the face of a natural disaster so overwhelming, has failed so long to ask for a declaration of a disaster area."

It turned down, 54 to 35, an amendment by Sen. Peter H. Dominick, R-Colo., to transfer the Head Start program for underprivileged preschool children to the U.S. Office of Education. The outcome Wednesday marked the biggest victory so far for administration forces in the current fight over legislation to keep the "war on poverty" also played down action there. The day's military communique omitted all mention of Con Thien and referred instead to "Marine Corps combat base complexes in northern Quangler classes let out. Democratic managers of the bill had feared other GOP proposals to split off OEO programs would succeed if the Dominick amendment carried. They said privately that, in their view, the Republicans made a tactical mistake in selecting Head Start as their first target. Several Southern senators opposed the amendment, chiefly because they dislike the Office of Education and its commissioner, Harold Howe II, more Plane Hits Seven Pers DALLAS, Tex.

Freeport (Hi.) Journal-Standard Pg. 12 Thurs., Sept. 28, 1967 New Russian Embassy Site Selected WASHINGTON (AP) — The 13-acre site of an unused veterans been hospital accepted reportedly has as the location for a new and larger Soviet embassy, a move which may clear the way for construction of a new American embassy in Moscow. Each nation has been working in cramped quarters in the other's capital. Neither has been willing to grant more space without reciprocity. , Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, the Washington Post reported today, told Secretary of State Dean Rusk the site of the old Mount Alto Veterans' Hospital, now being razed, will be suitable for the building of an embassy to replace the Soviets' present modest-sized chancery in downtown Washington. Late last week the State Department said the Soviets had offered an apparently suitable 9.6 acre site for a new U.S. embassy. It is located behind the present outgrown quarters in a former apartment building. Details of the exchange must still be worked out, the Post reported.
