The Rev. James E. .Long, pastor of Riverrhont Presbyterian CSmrch, in offering the innvoca- tion implored, "may it ever have our interest, love and enthusiastic backing." Robert C. Kennedy of Richmond; senior .vicie president of Civitan International, said, "Ci- vitan'International salutes you. You have not takeft complacent attitudes but have faced the opportunities.

Serving as principal speaker For the occasion was Robert B. Traweek who has served as executive director of the Virginia Association for Retarded Children since 1958. He was introduced by Ernest Eastman, president of the Colonial Heights Civitan Club. He spoke on "Appeal of Man for Guidance" and told the at- tenders, "we hear H^e cry of retarded and handicapped children and the cry of women, their mothers." · He said there must be a unity o£ efforts in a . community to overcome their plight and in reviewing workings of a sheltered workshop said "it should be more-than a place of manufacture." fle pointed out the need for entrance evaluation, well planned and disclipined training, a vigorous effort in trainee placement and follow up. · As to financial support he said, "we must participate at all levels and proper attitude is important." He stressed, "when-the mentally retarded ask us for guidance, we must not and wiU not fail them." The sheltered workshop, a Civitan project and a United Fund Agency has been in its new location since November of last year. For a number of years it was located at 79 Old St. The project center program of the Petersburg, Hopewell, Colonial Heights and Chester Civitan Clubs, stresses training in work habits and social behavior for mentally retarded or physically handicapped adults 16 years and older. The trainees at the workshop engage in numerous assembling projects carried out under contacts negotiated between the workshop and business firms and are paid for their efforts. Of the many attenders at the Friday ceremony none looked on the event with more pride than the trainees themselves! Among other attenders were Albert McCants, Lieutenant Governor of Zone II, Chesapaeke District Civitan who offered a welcome to Civitans, and District Gov. Richard' Lawson of Maryland, who offered brief remarks.

Mattingly agreed we "still have the ability to get there by 1970',' but he pointed out neither the Saturn V launch vehicle nor the three-man Apollo space capsule 'has been flown. The biggest audience of the five-day conference showed up to hear Mattingly, a pilot who has flown 1,200 hours in jet aircraft. "We are going to go as fast as we can prudently," Mattingly said of the man-on-the-moon program, "but we are not going to be bound by a timetable." "I think I'll take the F i f t h Amendment." Later he told newsmen that "I would leave women at home. At least that's the way I feel now."

Located on the property are four historic houses known as the Thomas Nelson House, the Edmund Smith House, the John Ballard House and the Thomas Pate House. The $777,000 appropriation would be added to an original $2 million authorization for all properties in the national park. An earlier report that the bill authorized payment o£ $2.7 million for the estate was incorrect, an aide to Rep. Thomas N. Downing, D-Va., said. Downing introduced the measure in the House, where it was passed June 5. held this year, it would be possible for the regular meeting of the legisalture in 1968 to act quickly in January and submit proposed constitutional changes for a statewide vote next year. The state could then make use of its borrowing power in the 1968-70 budget period--a course some legislators and other observers of state fiscal problems believe may become necessary if the state is to meet its needs. Dels. Bernard Levin and Thomas W. Moss of Norfolk and Willard Moody of Portsmouth said Friday the special session should be held this year.

Their calls came in the wake of 5 per cent holdback ordered the previous day in State Highway Department spending in the face of an $8 million deficit for the fiscal year which ended June 30. State Sen. Henry E. Howell did not specifically urge a special session this year but said the highway department's problem "is just another example of the necessity to bring state financing up to :the demands of today's needs." The state constitution provides that no state general obligation hands may be issued beyond a limit of 1 per cent of the total real estate assessed values 'in the state. This would permit bond issues up to about $70 million, subject to approval by the voters in a statewide referendum, without any extra legislative session or constitutional change. Some sources have suggested this possibility should be utilized before the constitution-amending machinery is set in motion. There have been indications Gov. Godwin will' give serious thought to the idea. In Roanoke, meanwhile, a,Virginia Young. Democratic Clubs committee named to study the pay-as-you-go system said it will seek citizens' opinions on state capital outlays and capital improvements. The committee has prepared a questionnaire it plans to ask newspapers to publish in Octo ber to seek public sentiment..

Mundy, who said a news con ference is planned here today {p disclose what the union says it has accomplished, said some teachers have joined the AFT in Colonial Heights and 'severa other places." The union, Mundy said, ha., its greatest numbers in Norfolk but has its "strongest base" in Newport News. A spokesman for the Virginia Education Association, the state organization of some 45,000 teachers, said there is no record of any AFT successes in the state.

A joint announcement Friday by George \V. Campbell, vice president and general manager of Nationwide, and Thomas G.

It was one of several intervenors contesting the proposed increases during a hear* ing before the SCC in June. Signing the notice of appeal were Del. George E.

Another notice of appeal was filed last month by three Nor- :olk legislators who also opposed the increase at the hearing. State Sen. Henry E. Howell Jr., Del. Stanley E. Sacks and Del. Thomas W.
