The first known American victim of the outburst of terrorism was Miss Irene Ferrel, 42, Jerome, Idaho, a member of the Baptist Mid-Missions. A coworker, Miss Ruthe Hege, 48, Wellington, Ohio, reportedly had a hand hacked off by the terrorists and was in serious condition.

"Once the big fellows of the organization had decided that nothing should happen to us, they all treated us very nice," he said. But until then both he and Schmidt feared for their lives.

Nixon today was entered formally in the New Hampshire presidential primary Mar. 10. John L. Mac Donald, a prominent Manchester Republican, filed his candidacy as a delegate at large favoring Nixon. Nixon's consent is not needed. Mac Donald called Nixon "the outstanding leader in Republican circles and the one man to best unite the various factions that exist within the party today." diameter satellite was launched from this Pacific Missile Range Base Saturday and currently is circling the earth in an 800-mile high orbit, appearing as a bright star. When the communications experiments gets under way, the interchange of radio signals will be bounced off the big "satel- loon" in what scientist hope will lead to an era of peaceful cooperation in space between the United States and Russia. Soviet signals are to be transmitted from the Zemenki Observatory at Gorki, east of Moscow. U.S. scientists will send their messages from Jodrell Bank Observatory in England. The interchange will be relayed from England to the United states by cable. The Echo 2, which joins a network of seven other U.S. communications satellites, is expected to stay aloft for at least three years—possibly longer. And the highly reflective sphere is expected to be seen by more persons than any other man-made object in history. It is visible at dawn or dusk as the rays of the rising or setting sun are reflected from its shiny- plastic and aluminum foil surface. NASA officials called Saturday's launch "one of the best best satellite launches that this country or any other country has ever made. Everything went exactly as planned." Johnson asked Congress to elevate the federal housing agencies to cabinet rank by creating a "department of housing and community development." He also launched a major new program by requesting federal aid to help develop self- sufficient "new towns" containing thousands of homes in areas outside of crowded cities or suburbs. Puff adder bite fatal to Utah zoo curator SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) — Jerry De Bary, curator at thc Salt Lake Zoo, died today from a bite of a deadly snake suffered Saturday night while cleaning the reptile's cage. De Bary, 37, a man who han died poisonous reptiles for 10 years at the zoo without incident, had been in "very critical" condition since being attacked by the puff adder. The two-foot, grayish brown snake struck after De Bary became dizzy and braced his hand on the side of the inside of the cage. His wife, Kay, was one of the first persons at his side after the snake struck. She brought antivenin, or snake serum, from the family home to the zoo. A passerby administered the serum and De Bary was rushed to the hospital. votes would be pledged to her. Sen. Smith also said she would enter the March 10 New Hampshire primary and the Illinois primary. Petitions have been circulating in both of those states by her supporters. Mrs. Smith revealed last Nov. 7 that she was considering making a bid for the nomination. The late President John F.

(UPI)-Byron de la Beckwith, a white fertilizer salesman from the Mississippi delta, went on trial today for the 1963 ambush slaying of Negro civil rights leader Medgar Evers. WASHINGTON (UPI) — De fense Secretary Robert S. Mc Namara, said today he had no doubt about the realiability of this country's military rocket arsenal. McNamara made his statement in a report to Congress on U.S. defense posture. At the same time, President Johnson sent Congress a report on U.S. space activities for 1963 which laid special emphasis on the "reliability" of both space and military rockets. Johnson's report said the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) scored successes in 14 of 15 launch attempts, including a 10-for-10 score on earth satellite tries. McNamara said in his report to the House Armed Services Committee that "I have no hesitancy whatsoever in saying that the missile force we have programmed can be depended upon to carry out its military mission under all the conditions we can foresee." I plane tonight for Washington after a final round of far-ranging talks with Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home. Kennedy, en route home from his Malaysian peace mission, met for an hour with Douglas- Home in what was described as a preview of the British prime minister's forthcoming visit to Washington. Diplomatic sources said the two men, with Foreign Minister R.A. Butler sitting in on the talks, discussed a wide variety of subjects in the context of the agenda likely to be used when Douglas-Home meets President Johnson early next month. The British government confirmed that Kennedy and Doug- on the Mediterranean island. An official foreign office spokesman said, however, that reports that Britain had asked MacArthur observes his birthday NEW YORK (UPI) — Gen. Douglas MacArthur, firm of voice, almost jaunty in bearing, quick in repartee, eloquent in his expressed love of country and West Point, had an old soldier's ideal birthday Sunday — his school honored him; his wartime staff gathered round him. He took the occasion of his 84th birthday anniversary to state that being a West Point graduate was the greatest of| the long list of high honors accorded him. President Johnson called him one of the authentic American heroes of this century, and sent him the country's thanks. ' the United States and other al lies for military support on Cyprus were "premature and speculative." Informed source had said Britain has asked the United States, through Kennedy, to send troops to Cyprus to help the 2.000-man force on the island keep peace. The talks ranged well beyond the issue of Malaysia, the British backed federation in Southeast Asia whose existence is threatened by Indonesia. In negotiations last week, Kennedy won Indonesian agreement to a cease-fire and got Malaysia and the Philippines to agree to a summit conference with Indonesia. Britain, its troop reserves stretched thin by the crisis in East Africa, was said to be appealing to the United States and other NATO powers for help on Cyprus. NATO enters the picture because the two disputing powers on Cyprus are Greece and Turkey, both NATO members. After a series of weekend talks at the prime minister's j country residence.

Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., proposed a nickel- a-pack increase in federal taxes on cigarettes to help finance a S10 billion attack on poverty in the United States. Nelson said in a prepared speech the tax would do no harm, and could be used to finance a ten-year program against poverty. The present federal cigarette tax is eight cents. Police seek to recover body PACIFIC PALISADES (UPI) An attempt to recover the body of a person wedged between heavy rocks of a jetty at Will Rogers State Beach was planned today, police said.
