Two of them are dead and the rest are in prison. This, he said, would have happened to him, loo, if someone hadn't helped. "He's completing his high school work while in service. I think he'll be all right." Mowery does not pretend that tilings are going to be "a 11 right" with most of the youngsters Youth Services deal with. In fact, he finds many things all wrong. Housing, for example: "Twenty - three people living in four rooms .. they literally have to sleep in shifts. "And the landlord who cut up one house into 12 apartments... he rents each of them $40 a month." And the trouble which breeds trouble: "This family has disintegrated. The father is in prison in Kentucky, the mother is in prison in Californa and the son was just sent to prison in Tennessee."

Leading Memphis high schools in rate of delinquency, Mowery said, now are Messick, White Station and East. He then told an incredible story: "A Memphis mother was awakened the other night by a telephone call. It was the police. They had her daughter, they said, at the station. "She said this was not possible as the daughter was asleep n her bedroom. Well, the daughter wasn't. She was at the station and the mother went down to get her. She told the daughter that she didn't see how she had failed. 'I've given you everything ... $400 a month allowance and all and now you've done this to me.' " Mowery related the story without comment. * * * The Episcopal priest concluded his report by exhibiting "a few of the weapons we've picked up along the way from those youngsters." It was a vicious a r s e n a' which included brass knucks (in a half-dozen different styles and shapes), pistols, sawed oft shotguns, knives of all descriptions chains (for breaking wind shields and-or heads) and other bludgeons. Committee now is considering a treaty that would provide for peaceful use of outer space. The White House looks for Senate ratification by a wide margin. But approval of the consular i pact was rated unlikely to [brighten the prospects for John! son's proposal for more favora- ible trade treatment toward Communist countries. The administration argued the pact would provide much greater protection for the 18,000 Americans who visit the Soviet Union annually, compared with reciprocal treatment for the 900 Soviet tourists who come here each year. While the treaty does not provide for consulates as such, the two countries are expected to i establish consulates at some the moon with the Russians or anyone else." Senate Republican Everett M.

New York and Chicago for the Soviets, and Moscow and Leningrad for the Americans, are sites talked about for future consulates.

Chet Holifield, a Democrat from the space industry capital, California, and deputy lairman of the Joint Atomic nergy Comittee — "I am etting colder and colder on this jace business as we go along." But, cautioned Holifield, those ho would like to flag down the pace drive are facing "A jug- ernaut of vested interest" — ASA, the big industries, small usinesses, merchants, scien- sts, worker, universitie, ave shared in the $23-billion moon action since 1961. More than 800 communities istributed among all 50 states ad installations with prime [ASA contracts in 1966. However the man to the moon reject has already passed its udget peak. NASA's associate dministrator, George E. Muell- r, said the number of people mployed in the manned pro- rams has dropped from a peak f 300,000 to 225,000 and will be 15,000 by year's end. "This," he added, "represents „ significant economic impact upon the aerospace industry." T6 put the program back on he upswing, some space drum- beaters want a new national = 'oal announced for after the moon, such as "Mars by 1975." Two NASA planners, Edward Z. Gray, director of manned missions program, and Franklin Dixon, director of planetary mission studies, contend the United States should send men to loop around Mars as early as 1975, to take advantage of the planet's position then. Humphrey indicated that although NASA and industry would like it the other way ; 'We're not going to make a tar- gel, date of Mars by 1975." The United States, he said intends to concentrate on the scientific rather than the spectacular goals. Whether mis sions will be manned or un manned "depends on what we are looking for." Senate Space Committei Chairman Clinton P. Anderson D-N.M. said, "I want to get thi man to the moon done. I'm no worried about getting men t< Mars now."
