Trained Porpoise Might Become 'Secret Weapon' fvednesday, January 25, *'»* CHINA LAKE Calif. (AP) - Iliat porpoise the Navy started iniinmjj a year ;igo has turned out to bo unpredictable and talkative, is expected to swim at speeds of 30 to 40 knots and talking is best trick she's learned so the far,. Expected lo swim at speeds of .10 to 40 knots — and thus show scientists how to build faster submarines —she still hasn't gone faster than 16. Scientists hope to overcome her aversion to speed by giving her more room, perhaps an inlet fenced off with antisubmarine netting. Her speed runs so far have been made in a narrow 315- foot-lonR tank. Her ability to talk delights Navy scientists. They're building complicated electronic gear in the Your Watch COMPLETELY »OVERHAULED • CLEANED • CASE & BAND POLISHED ONLY $/|95 4 MAYFAIR JEWELERS THE HOUSEOF DIAMONDS ^? Citizens Sank hopes that, by duplicating her) Notty's talking to human cars sounds, they can actually hold conversations. The porpoise, called Notty aftei' the initial of the Naval Ordnance Test Station here, has learned another trick. She can count out her ago. which is four. She does this by nudging a lever in her private pool. Her trainer, psychologist Ron Turner, says there's no chance that tills sounds like a cat in anguish. She also makes noises humans can't hear. Dr. Rene Engcl. head of oceanic research at NOTS, has caught these noises on tape and now is working on a generator to duplicate them. "Our first step," says Engcl, "will be to determine what sounds is just luck. She's been trained toj Notty reacts to. Then wo will ob- push another lever when she's,serve what she woes after each through counting. I type of sound. If we can learn EVER HAPPEN TO YOU?

If she can be taught to talk and count, the day may come when deep-diving Notty will swim alongside an American picket boat and yell: "Hey, skipper. I just spotted four enemy subs off Kodiak Island at 100 fathoms." "Livonia, where's Livonia?" asked Innis. Michigan, Murphy replied. "But we live in Crestwood, Mo.," Innis said. It seems Greg had stumbled onto the long distance dialing code for Livonia, then dialed the po- 'lice station number. TRENTON, N.J. fAP)-Every- ione expected a donnybrook in | New Jersey's election for governor this year. With the election : still more than nine months away. | all advance , notices have been more than fulfilled. i Gov. Robert B. Meyner, a Demi ocrat, is finishing his second four- lyear term and is constitutionally I barred from running again. A jherd of candidates, announced 'and unannounced, already is in pursuit of the right to take the oath of office Jan. 16, 1962. On the Republican side, the entry of James P. Mitchell, who was President Eisenhower's secretary of labor, has stirred a bitter fight. Three state senators already were in the race when Mitchell entered a week ago. Meet of the Republican majority in the State Senate has formed a loose alliance against Mitchell. On the Democratic side, Meyner and party leaders talk of anywhere from 20 to 30 candidates, depending on how good their memories are on a given day. Rep. Frank Thompson Jr. of Trenton, a close friend of President Kennedy, and State Sen. Donal C. Fox of Essex County, largest in the state, have popped up as those mentioned most frequently. Mitchell's entry into the Republican primary represents a drive by U.S. Sen. Clifford P. Case to provide state leadership for the GOP, something the party has had difficulty locating since Mey- ner ended a long Republican reign in 1953. State Sen. Walter H. Jones, head of the Bergen County organization renowned lor big Republican pluralities, was considered a substantial favorite until Mitchell's entry. State Sens. Wayne Dumont Jr. and Charles W. Sandman, both representatives of small rural counties, were in the race but had nothing like Jones' organizational head start. Some Democrats figure that if they cannot begin to get organized soon, Kennedy may take a hand. The sight of what a Wash- Gen. Francis Marion, the American Revolutionary War leader, was-known as the "Swamp Fox.-'' Cool Acetate Brief With Elastic Legs 2 100 for I Tailored for smooth fit. Lace cuffs. In white, pastels S-ML.
