Chang served notice his party will resist the proposed changes without new Assembly election first it it Pyun told newsmen the President also probably would promise to remove police and civil servants from party politics, thus replying to long-standing criticism that Rhees Liberals have used police to further all ends. A key visitor seeing Rhee was Lee Ki-Poong, vice president-elect, who has said he plans to resign the office he won as Rhees running mate in the disputed March 15 Lee, Rhees top underling in the Liberal party, had been under popular pressure to step down because antigovemment demonstrators blamed him for what they labeled as rigged voting.

Indications were however that rather than yield to popular demands to quit public life, Lee hoped to play a major role in helping Rhee revamp the government. Lt. Gen. Song Yo-chan, South Koreas martial law commander, announced that censorship in the Korean press would be lifted shortly and that grade schools, closed last Tuesday, would be reopened Monday.

One other move in that direction was his visit Saturday to a Seoul hospital to console some of the victims in last Tuesdays clash between police and antigovernment demonstrators. A government spokesman said Rhee stopped at the beds of 40 or more of the injured and shed tears over some of the victims and left money for them.

This transition was pointed up here in a convention merging Lutheran churches of German, Danish and Norwegian origin, the first such step in the United States of its scope.

Better modes of communication, and mobility of the population, has brought a fusing of the various groups, Dr. Schiotz said.

The pilot called off a radar bombing run over a Salt Lake City check point and was not heard from again. The plane was on a final checkout flight from Fort Worth to Salt Lake City and return, prior to being turned over to the Air Force. it it it Timpson said he bailed out of the plane at 17,000 feet at 4 p.m.

and landed in the salt water of the lake about one mile from shore. He inflated his raft and paddled to the shore when he built a lean-to and spent the night. Saturday morning he found a sheepherder who took him to Saline, a way station on the Southern Pacific Railroad about 12 miles west of Ogden. WHO SAYS SPRING IS HERE FOR GOOD? HELENA, Mont. (AP) A spring snowstorm heaped as much as 30 inches of snow along the Continental Divide and up to six inches at this capital city Saturday in a continuing 36-hour storm.

The Weather Bureau predicted the storm may continue through part of Sunday. The heavy gray clouds clung mostly along the northern Rockies. Dry eastern Montana plains areas in need of crop-growing moisture escaped the snow. Its been a million-dollar snow for our wheat country, said reporter Earl Best of Cut Bank. tel rjrjgrjrjrjrjrjrjrjrjrjrj Widow, 76, Is Raped, pled In Milwaukee MILWAUKEE (AP)-A 76-year-old widow was dragged into an alley early Saturday, raped and beaten to death in what police described as the most savage sex attack in recent years.

Police organized an intensive hunt for the killer. Authorities said that except for a meager description of the assailant, furnished by the victim, Mrs. Ida Lowry, before she died, clues were lacking. She told police officers that her attacker was a big white man who had said he works at the bridge. She said that he grabbed her as she walked past the alley, knocked her down and dragged her into the alley.

A motorist heard a woman screaming for help as he passed an alley in the downtown district. He found Mrs. Lowry. She died at County Emergency Hospital less than an hour later. Dr.

L. J. Van Hecke, Milwaukee County medical examiner, said an autopsy indicated that death was shock caused by internal injuries resulting from a sadistic sexual assault. Mrs. Lowry was also beaten on the head and body with some sort of weapon, possibly a heavy stick.

Sixteen patrolmen searched the area for the weapon. Twelve detectives were assigned to the case. Mrs. Lowry, whose husband died about 10 years ago, had been living at a downtown hotel about four blocks from the scene of the attack. Keys to two safety deposit boxes were found among her effects.

She had told police she was carrying no money with her when she was accosted. LOCALS POLITICS Continued from Page 1 told a party dinner at Davenport, Iowa. Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, who concedes his Southwestern background in his undeclared but obvious presidential ambitions made a brief reference to racial and religious conflicts in a luncheon talk at Salt Lake City.

Without elaborating, he said strife in Africa and the Middle East is based on blind unreasoned fear of other men because of the color of their skin and their beliefs. Nixon, in his speech to a luncheon session of the editors, also said there are good reasons to think that Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev wants an easing of tensions at next months summit conference in Paris. it it I think this may be his attitude, the vice pfesident said, not because he is motivated by what he scorns as sentimental idealism but because, realist that he is, he is concerned by some hard facts of international life. He said the West should look on the talks as a chance to champion and achieve some affirmative fundamental objectives. He said the conference provides an opportunity to make at least a beginning on practical arms control, and to take the heat out of the Berlin crisis, laying the groundwork for negotiations which would lead to a formal and definitive solution of that problem.

Nixon said Khrushchev, in dealing with the Western leaders, is certain to be influenced by the diabolical enormity of nuclear weapons and by a desire not to risk destruction of progress which communism has made in the Soviet Union. It is because the hard facts of international life are on the side of peace and disarmament, Nixon continued, that I believe that we can look to this conference and to the future, not with starry-eyed complacency but with justifiable confidence that responsible world leaders will slowly but inevitably develop more effective methods for settling differences between nations without war. it it it Before he spoke, Nixon received a unanimous vote from a group of the editors as the probable GOP presidential1 candidate. An informal poll taken at a breakfast also voted overwhelmingly that Adlai E. Stevenson would again be the Democratic nominee.

Asked which party they expect to win the White House, the editors favored the Republicans, 45-42. Turner Catledge, managing editor of the New York Times, was elected president of the society to succeed J. R. Wiggins, executive editor of the Washington Post. Felix R.

McKnight, executive editor of the Dallas Times Herald, was chosen first vice president, putting him in line to become president next year under the society's custom. CORRECTION The Tri-State obituary of Orie Heiser, Cashton, in Saturdays Tribune incorrectly listed one of bis survivors as a Johnson of La Crosse. The name should have been Leona Johan-son.
