She had started out Saturday from Santa Catalina Island as the only woman entry in a balloon race to the Southern California mainland. Only one of the entries in the competition made it to the mainland. Five others had to be rescued from the sea and another crashed before leaving the island. A widespread air and sea search for Mrs. Keith began after she disappeared in the ill- fated race. Investigators theorized she had used flares and dye markers in attempts to attract the attention of rescuers, but the giant search party failed to find her unil it was too late. Drowning was listed as the apparent cause of death, pending further examination. High winds were blamed for blowing Mrs. Keith's balloon off course and into the ocean. It was found eight miles north of Dana Point on the Mainland, about 28 miles south of Santa Catalina Island. Pearson to confer cn de Gaulle plan OTTAWA (UPI) — Prime .Minister Lester B.

In reversing upward spending trends started in the Eisenhower administration's last years and accelerated under the late President John F. Kennedy, Johnson gave assurance that there would not be "any sacrifice in essential military capability." Military manpower has increased by about 200,000 in the last three years and the annual defense spending rate is more than $8 billion higher than in Dwight D. Eisenhower's last year as president. Huge increases in conventional and nuclar power and Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara's intensive cost-cutting program now make it possible, Johnson said, to make significant spending cuts "while main- position of Tanganyikan army revolt spread to trade center Quote of Day WASHINGTON — President Johnson's orders to the White House staff to economize by turning off unneeded lights to save on the electric bill: "When not in use, turn off the juice." Ruby's attorneys withdraw release request DALLAS (UPD—Jack Ruby's defense attorneys today withdrew their request for his re lease on bail and the slayer of Lee Harvey Oswald was ordered back to his cell pending intensive mental examinations under guard in a hospital. At the same time, the defense presented Judge Joe B. Brown with a motion demanding a change of venue that would put Ruby's murder trial in a city outside Dallas. Brown, a criminal district court judge, said he would rule on the motion when he opens the scheduled trial in his Dallas court, Feb. 3. Brown, holding the bail bond hearing, said he would confer with Dist. Atty. Henry Wade and chief defense attorney Melvin Belli on the change of venue. The court named Dr. Martin L.

Taft, whose name is as well known in politics as Glenn's in space, is favored to beat Sec retary of State Ted W. Brown, winner of six statewide elec tions, for the GOP nomination. In a message to the conference, which resumed after a four-month recess, Johnson also called for a ban on the spread of nuclear weapons and on the production of fissionable materials for atomic bombs.

Emphasis will be placed on raising the "eudcational, health and skill levels" of youth to enable them to break out of the "vicious circle" of inherited poverty. —A $1.3 billion budget cut in defense programs to a total of $54 billion. Johnson cited the nation's "high level of preparedness," and said that economies implemented by the armed forces in recent years were beginning to show results. —Space programs will be hiked $600 billion to $5 billion with continued emphasis on putting men on the moon by 1970.

"There is only one item on the agenda of this conference—it is the leading item on the agenda of mankind—and that one item is peace," Johnson said. WASHINGTON (UPD—Presi­ dent Johnson called today for East-West consideration of a freeze on strategic nuclear missiles and warplanes plus other steps to reduce the risk of war. He said a new world war might be measured in terms of how many hundreds of millions of people are killed in the first hour. The President sent to the 17- nation disarmament conference in Geneva a five-point program. He then went before the American people on television and radio shortly before noon EST to explain it. $580 record player Baker asked agent to make gift to Johnson WASHINGTON (UPI) — Anpresent from Baker.

At the White House, Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said Jenkin's statement "makes it very clear that the President never had any communication with Mr. Reynolds about the record player, and considered it a gift from a long-time employee (Baker)." Salinger said he believed Johnson gave the stereo to one of his household employees "some time ago."

Revenues: $93 billion, up S4.6 billion from current year.
