Eddie Fisher flew to New York en route to Innsbruck. Austria,. where he will attend the Winter Olympics. His estranged wife Elizabeth Taylor and her Welsh lover, Richard Burton, who has been divorced along the way, made plans to either fly or take a train to Canada next week. Fisher, currently in New York has said that he is not demanding any money for the divorce. He has said that he is willing to facilitate it, but wants to make sure that his children are provided for. The lawyers made this statement: NEW YORK (UPI)—Elizabeth Taylor's attorneys said today singer Eddie Fisher is demanding SI million as the price of a divorce and that she will not pay it. The attorneys are Milton Rudin of California and Aaron Frosch of New York. The attorneys said they felt they were obligated to disclose details of the negotiations for a divorce because of statements Fisher has made publicly. "At the outset of our negotiations, Mr. Fisher's sole demand was that Miss Taylor recognize his claim to one-half of the stock of MCL Films, the com- ' pany which was a coproducer of i and continues to have an ownership interest in, 'Cleopatra.' "This is Miss Taylor's sole remaining interest in 'Cleopatra.' "After we received authorization to accede to this demand, we were informed that Mr. Fisher now would only accept the sum of $750,000, tax free, and the use of an additional sum of $250,000 for 10 years. "When we informed Miss Tay| lor of the new demands, she refused to consider whether or not I the stock Mr. Fisher claimed I was worth more or less than the SI million involved, but took the position that she would not 'pay for a divorce' and requested us to inform Mr. Fisher and his attorneys of that position," the lawyers continued. "At no time has Miss Taylor requested, demanded or sought j from Eddie Fisher any alimony, | support for her children or monetary settlement of any kind. There has never been any issue with respect to the custody or support arrangements for Miss Taylor's children. "Since Mr. Fisher and Miss Taylor separated over a year ago, Mr. Fisher has not contributed to the support of the children and no request has been made that he contribute to their support. "Miss Taylor has made adequate arrangements for the financial security of her children." Nixon says would accept GOP draff NEW YORK (UPI) — Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon practically stepped into the contender's circle Thursday night by announcing he would accept a draft for the Republican presidential nomination. In a nationally televised in-! terview, Nixon said he may| "reappraise" his former convic-j tion that a man cannot win thej nomination without entering aj primary. j Nixon appeared on the "CBS! Evening News with Walter Cronkite." Two of the three announced GOP contenders — Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York and Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz. :urrently are on the primary campaign trail. The third contender, Harold Stassen of Pennsylvania, has not taken to the hustings yet. However, Nixon agreed flatly with the view that it is still possible for a man to win the Republican nomination in July without having entered any primary if there is no clear - cut decision in the primary elections as to a real strong front runner. j It was suggested that this isi where Nixon would come in and] the former vice president saidj he would not "reject" a presi-; dential draft adding however j that he did not "anticipate" it.! Looking at his own standing.; Nixon said he was "aware of. the fact that I do lead the; polls." | | "I don't think that's surpris-; j'ng. After all, I received 34 million votes in 1960," he said. ! But he conceded that he docs; not "have anything going for ime among the . . . professional; : politicians." ! Under the circumstances he; jsaid the likelihood of a draft is i "very, very small." Goldwater says Johnson gift subject to question WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen., Barry Goldwater said today! that President Johnson should have seriously questioned the 1959 gift of a $580 hi-fi set which he thought came from former Senate Democratic Secretary Robert G. (Bobby) Baker. The Arizona Republican, who may be Johnson's opponent for the presidency, said Johnson should have realized that at Baker's salary "that was an expensive gift." Goldwater conceded he was not acquainted with details ofj the Baker investigation. But he said that if an aide had given him such an expensive gift. "I'd have asked, 'where did you get this, buster.' " Johnson said Thursday that he and Baker customarily exchanged Christmas gifts with neither expecting any favor from the other. According to testimony before the Senate Rules Committee, the hi-fi set was paid for by an insurance broker friend of Baker's. Johnson said he received the expensive stereo set in 1959. At ;that time Johnson was Senate Democratic leader and Baker was secretary to Senate Demo- •crats. The President said his (family and the Baker family jhad exchanged gifts before, j "He was an employe of th" public and had no business pending before me and was asking for nothing and so far as I knew- expected nothing in return any more than I did when I had presented him with gifts." Johnson said. Johnson said he and his family had used the stereo for a time. An aide has told senators it later was given to a mem­ ber of the Johnson household staff. In another development, the chief counsel in the committee's investigation indicated that Baker is proving uncooperative iin efforts to question him. i Counsel L. P. McLendon told ; the committee "you can't inter- iview a man who won't be in- jterviewed." He had been asked if Baker had undergone questioning by investigators. Asked if this meant Baker had refused to cooperate, McClendon replied: "That's plain enough." U.S. willing to discuss all Panama issues WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson says the United States is willing to discuss with Panama any issues dividing the two nations, presumably including the canal treaty, 30 Dallas doctors tell of efforts to save Kennedy Doc AUSTIN, Tex.

(UPI) Gov. William W. Scranton Thursday urged former Vice President Richard M. Nixon to become an announced candidate for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination. Scranton made the remark several hours after Nixon announced his willingness to accept a draft for the nomination. Scranton said Nixon was "qualified" for the presidency and that he hoped the former vice president would become an announced candidate "and join the others who have given us the opportunity for good choices." ] If convinced, quit Doctor tells how to break smoking habit High Low Prec Boston 37 32 Chicago 50 38 T Cincinnati 62 41 Denver 40 13 Fairbanks -20 -32 Fort Worth 71 51 Helena 15 -1 Honolulu SO 67 Kansas Cily 61 33 Las Vegas 51 25 Los Angeles 59 46 .02 Minneapolis 31 28 .02 New York 46 40 Oklahoma City 66 37 Palm Springs 63 38 Sacramento 50 41 Salt Lake City 30 12 .02 San Francisco 50 46 .01 Seattle 41 31 .10 Washington 56 31 CHICAGO (UPI) —A smoker who is "personally convinced" can kick the habit, a physician said today, but he should not try merely to "cut down" on tobacco consumption. Dr. George William Ware. Washington, said in the American Medical Association magazine. "Today's Health," that a limitation of tobacco consumption "is likely to last only a few days. The smoker must be stopped completely, not even one cigarette per day permitted." Self - convincement by the smoker of his ability to quit is vital, Ware said, because "no one stops smoking because of newspaper articles, requests by the wife or half-hearted intentions." He advised smokers who want to quit to: —Pick a target date for the start of the ordeal preferably a weekend where you will be out of the company of other smokers. —Publicly state your intentions of quitting smoking on that day.' —Obtain gum and candy, which arc helpful substitutes during that first crucial eight hours after quitting. Married smokers seeking to quit the habit must obtain cooperation of their spouses, who will "bear the brunt of the irritation," he said. However, in the same article. Dr. Leo H. Bartemcier warns that once you've quit smoking you haven't necessarily reduced your bad habits. Bartemeier, a Baltimore psychiatrist, found that oversmok­ ing stems from a "basic emotional need to obtain satisfaction, relieve tension, protect against anxiety." If you quit smoking, you may switch "to some other form of self indulgence." he said. Some smokers who do not get sufficient satisfaction from their jobs rely on excessive smoking to "be able to work and to be friendly or sociable with others," Bartemeier said. Smokers who quit tobacco may find they have begun to eat or drink excessively. Profs. Joseph Brozek and Ancel Keys of the University of Minnesota found in a five year study that smokers who gave up tobacco tended to gain an average of 8.2 pounds in two years, "Today's Health" said. Sukarno refuses to give promise to R. Kennedy LONDON (UPI) — Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy said on arrival from his Far East peace mission today that Indonesian President Sukarno refused to promise him to give up his opposition to British-backed Malaysia. Kennedy, who got Sukarno to agree to a summit meeting on the dispute with the leaders of Malaysia and the Philippines, flew here to report to Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas- j Home. ! He said Sukarno, who announced a cease-fire in his guerrilla war along the Malaysian border Thursday, agreed only to give up the military aspects of his opposition to Ma-i laysia. Indonesia's political op-| position thus remains. j Kennedy said he believes Su-j karno can be trusted and that | both the president and the In-j donesian people want to settle j the problem. I The attorney general, acting j as special envoy for President Johnson, said the chief success of his mission was taking "the matter out of the jungle" and sending it to the conference table. canal "against riots and van dais and sabotage and other interference." "These obligations cannot be abandoned," he added. "But the security of the Panama Ca nal is not inconsistent with the interests of the Republic of Panama. Both of these objec tives can and should be as sured by the actions and agreement of Panama and the United States." PANAMA CITY (UPI) —U.S. Aid Director Benjamin Tench returned to his Panama City City office today for the first time in a week in apparent preparation for a resumption of full-scale relief work. Tench, however, told UPI no decision had yet been reached on it or when his 50-man staff would return to Panama from their present Canal Zone haven. The aid staff here includes 30 staffers and some 29 hired technicians. More than half of its work is in the interior. The U. S. said Thursday it was willing to resume aid to Panama if the Panamanian government guaranteed the safety of aid workers. The Panamanians subsequently gave such assurances and it was assumed Tench was awaiting a definite .order from Washington to resume his task. an occasional heartbeat and "slow agonal respiratory efforts" by listening through a stethescope. Kennedy's eyes were dilated and fixed in a stare, Carrico said, and there was no pulse or blood pressure. Dr. Malcolm O. Perry, 34, said his examination showed only a "slow spasmodic respiration." He described the President as "non-responsive." Dr. Carrico noted two external wounds — one in the neck and one in the head. Shredded brain tissue was visible in the head wound, the doctor said. Dr. William Kemp Clark, a specialist on head injuries and the doctor who pronounced Kennedy dead after consultation with the other physicians, noted "much of the right posterior skull, at brief examination, appeared gone."

Georgia Tech quits SE conference Contract awarded SACRAMENTO (UPI) — Contracts totaling $388,200 were awarded Thursday to three Los| Angeles firms for building two' state dorms at Whitticr. All that buzz are not bombs PARIS (UPI) — An alert went out at Orly Airport Thursday morning when a valise being loaded onto a Marseilles- bound plane began emitting strange buzzing sounds and a sorched odor. Police were summoned quickly and they stopped the passenger who owned the suitcase. When they checked the bag, red-faced police discovered the suspected "bomb" was a battery operated toothbrush which had jarred and turned itself on, chewing up its plastic case. ATLANTA (UPI) —Georgia Tech. rebuffed in a dispute over athletic scholarships, quit the Southeastern Conference today to become an independent. Tech. a power for years in football in the South, resigned the 12-member conference effective June 30 as a climax to a losing battle to junk the maximum 140 scholarships permitted for football and basketball athletes at one school. Tech withdrew from the 33- ycar-old conference, of which it was a charter member, before the issue over scholarships could come up for a formal vote before the presidents of member schools, here for the annual SEC meeting. Senate group votes bigger tax cut WASHINGTON (UPI) — Senate tax writers laid before their colleagues today a $11.5 billion tax cut program approved after a confusing windup to more than four weeks of labor, The 17-member Finance Committee completed work on the biggest tax cut in history Thursday, voting approval 12 The top priority measure, $400 million larger than the bill passed by the House Sept. 25, would slash tax rates for virtually every U.S. taxpayer and corporation. Two-thirds of the reductions would be effective this election year, retroactive to Jan. 1, and the balance on Jan. 1, 1965. Senate leaders hope to start floor debate next week or by Feb. 3 and steer the bill [ Poll tax banned as 24th amendment ratified PIERRE, S.D. (UPI) — The 24th Amendment banning the poll tax was a part of the U.S. Constitution for all practical purposes today as a result of a last minute race between Georgia and South Dakota for final ratification honors. South Dakota won. The state Senate suspended its rules Thursday and passed the resolution unanimously, 34-0. Georgia almost got into the act when its Senate passed the ratification resolution unanimously and sent it to the House for speedy action. The administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA), upon receiving notification of ratification here, will formally certify that the amendment has been ratified by the required three-fourths of the states. Ratification of the 23rd Amendment—which gave District of Columbia residents the right to vote in presidential elections — was completed March 29, 1961, when Kansas became the 38th state to ratify 42 minutes ahead of Ohio. The GSA administrator formally declared it in force April 3, 1961. The new amendment forbids the collection of poll taxes as a requirement for voting in primaries and elections for president, vice president and members of Congress. Thus for the first time since the birth of the republic, a presidential election will be held this year without a poll tax. Actually, the victory for civil rights groups was small. Only five states still have the poll tax on their books. And states still may require the poll tax for state and local elections.

Last Tuesday at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, where the missing plane had been stationed, the eight crewmen and a Navy passenger were declared officially dead. Slightly more than 24 hours later, another C124 flying over the same area between Hawaii and Wake Island reported sighting a raft in the water. Crewmen said they made a low pass over the raft and saw a man waving as darkness closed in. Search planes from Hawaii rushed to the area and kept a night-long vigil over the spot where the crew of the C-124 reported sighting the raft, air-' Para-medics stood in readi- craft brought in from as far as the U.S. mainland and Japan flew 300 sorties over more than a half-million miles of ocean, but found no sign of the miss- ness and surface vessels moved in to be on hand for the rescue at the first crack of dawn—but daylight revealed nothing but a tossing sea. Heart transplanted, but man dies JACKSON, Miss. (UPD-Sur-j geons transplanted a heart into] the body of a man dying ofj heart failure Thursday night. The transplant heart beat for an hour before the patient died. Physicians here said it was believed to be the first heart transplant in a human. Officials at the University of Mississippi Medical Center said today the donor heart "ultimately proved inadequate for this patient's requirements." "The fatal outcome could not be reversed," doctors said. Surgeons said they were gratified to confirm, however, that procedures previously worked out in the experimental laboratory with animals also are effective in man. University surgeons have transplanted hearts in more than 200 animals over a period of several years, it was reported. The identities of the patient and the heart donor were not revealed. The university said the pa­ tient had been rushed to the operating room in shock, dying of terminal heart failure. The operation took more than three hours including one hour on the artificial heart-lung machine. It began shortly before midnight and was completed early today. During the transfer, and while being sewed in place, the donor heart was preserved with chilled blood pumped backward through the coronary sinus which is the large vein that drains the heart itself. The university said a "forceful, regular beat" was immediately established with a single shock of an electrical instrument. "Unfortunately, the dimensions of the only donor heart available at the time of the patient's collapse proved too small for the requirements of the considerably larger recipient," the university said. Surgeons said this disparity must be minimized in future operations of this nature.
