(Bobby) Baker, the former Senate aide who became a whiz at high finance, bought one stock which zoomed in value from S28.000 to $400,000 in little more than a year, it was disclosed today. Max H. Karl, president of the Mortgage Guarantee Insurance Corp. (MGIC) of Milwaukee, described the transaction to the Senate Rules Committee which is investigating Baker's lucrative outside activities. He said the stock (MGIC). purchased by Baker in August. 1959, for S28.750 was valued at about $400,000 in December of 1960. But Karl pointed out that Baker, a S19.600 Senate aide atj the time, shared the stock pur-i chase with friends. He later disposed of some of his own holdings, partly to pay off a loan, the witness said. Prior to the hearing, special counsel L. P. McLendon told reporters that staff investigaors were interviewing Albert G. Young, president of the Mid- Atlantic Stainless Steel Corp. of nearby Silver Spring, Md. McLendon said the committee was studying letters given voluntarily by Young revealing details of the purchase by the Mid - Atlantic Stainless Steel Corp. of television advertising from an Austin. Tex., station owned by the LBJ Co. Young's information was expected to clear up a discrepancy in testimony between Don B. Reynolds, a local insurance man, and Walter Jenkins, an aide to President Johnson. Reynolds testified that Jenkins suggested the insurance company purchase advertising time after Reynolds wrote three big life insurance policies on Johnson, then the Senate Democratic leader. Jenkins, in a sworn affidavit given to the committee, said he had no knowledge of the advertising. I Young, whose company oper -i ates nationally, purchased SI.203 in advertising from the station after working out a deal with Reynolds. He has told reporters that he discussed the transaction with Jenkins. WASHINGTON (UPI) — Re- 1 publican national Chairman William E. Miller called today for a Senate investigation of possible perjury on the part of a White House aide or another witness in the Bobby Baker inquiry. Miller said there is a clear conflict in statements made before the Senate Rules Committee by insurance man Don B. Reynolds and President Johnson's long - time aide, Walter Jenkins, concerning advertising time purchased on an Austin, Tex., television station owned by the LBJ Co. Miller said it is imperative that the committee follow up on this "clear issue of possible perjury" on the part of Jenkins or Reynolds. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE - Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, first woman Republican ever elected to the Senate, points to a poem on the wall as she arrives to address the Women's New York in crackdown on drips NEW YORK (UPI) — New Yorkers were warned today that the drip-drip-drip in the kitchen sink or bath tub adds up to 100-million gallons of water a day. Home owners also were warned to make repairs within three days or face fines up to $50. Faced with an "emergency" water shortage after last fall's severe drought, city commissioner of water supply, gas and electricity, Armand D'Angcloj put 250 inspectors to work tracing leaky faucets. At the end of the initial day's work Monday the inspectors reported they had found leaks in one apartment out of seven. D'Angelo multiplying the findings against homes came up with the startling figure that the leaks are costing the city 100-million gallons a day. New Yorkers use a billion gallons of water daily.

(UPI)—A Nashville policeman testified today he was offered at least $10,000" if he could contact one of the jurors in the 1962 kickback trial of labor leader James R. Hoffa. Over the vigorous objections of defense attorneys, policeman James T. Walker told a fed eral court jury hearing charges of jury tampering against Hoffa and five others that the offer was made by one of the co-defendants in the case. Defense attorney Jacques Schiffer argued that Walker's testimony was "hearsay" and said the jury in this trial would be "bored into hopeless confusion." He demanded that the government be forced to show conspiracy existed. Schiffer's request was overruled. Walker testified that Thomas Parks, a former business agent for Hoffa's Teamsters Local 299 in Detroit, approached him about contacting juror Gratin Fields during the 1962 trial in Nashville. Walker testified that Parks told him, "he would be willing to get at least $10,000 for me if I could contact Mr. Fields." Hooker asked Walker if Parks had called him after the May, 1963 indictment of Hoffa and the other co-defendants on jury tampering charges. Walker answered, "Yes sir. He called and told me to come to the office to Mr. Osborn's office and they would take care of me there." Z.T. Osborn Jr. is a former Nashville attorney for Hoffa who has been disbarred and indicted on charges of attempting to bribe at least three jurors in connection with the 1962 trial which ended in a mistrial. Osborn faces trial in Nashville at a later date. It was the first time his name had been brought out at the trial here. Walker testified Monday that Parks had talked to Carl Fields, son of Gratin Fields. Illinois primary. She said she also might enter the Oregon and District of Columbia primaries Her candidacy was welcomed as "very refreshing" by Sen. George Aiken, R-Vt., and as "splendid" by Esther Peterson, President Johnson's appointee to head consumer affairs. Republican National Chairman William E. Miller said he was "delighted" she had entered the presidential sweepstakes and predicted Mrs. Smith would receive a "great response." Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., a leading supporter of Gov. Nelson Rockefeller for the Republican nomination, said Mrs. Smith was a "stellar performer" who would make the pre- convention battle more lively. Mrs. Smith's decision to run was based on thousands of letters from all 50 states asking her to enter the presidential race. Kuchel agrees to head Rockefeller delegation SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) —New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller announced today that Sen. Thomas Kuchel, R-Calif., had agreed to lead his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination in California. Rockefeller arrived here to launch his campaign in the na tion's largest state and said Kuchel would lead the 86-member California delegation to the GOP National Convention if Rockefeller is victorious in the June 2 primary election. Kuchel, senate minority whip, won re-election in 1962 by 700,000 votes over state Sen. Richard Richards. He announced .Monday night that he was supporting Rockefeller for the Presidential nomination. It was his first visit to the nation's most populous state since he became an official candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination. The governor and his wife. Happy, plan a three-day swing! through the state — starting at Kennedy warns Malaysia war could involve U.S. WASHINGTON (UPI) —Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy told President Johnson today there is a risk of full-scale war involving the United States if the Southeast Asia quarrel over Malaysia is not settled. Kennedy reported to Johnson for nearly 90 minutes on the results of his 12-day, six-nation peacemaking tour on which he was sent by the President in an attempt to ease the worsening crisis between Indonesia and the new nation of Malaysia. Johnson, in an unusual move, introduced Kennedy to waiting reporters after the meeting. He termed Kennedy's trip to Asia "a very important mission" and said it was the unanimous opinion of all that the attorney general did a good job. Johnson said that the alternative to peace in the area would be a return to jungle war which, he said would "escalate" into larger conflict involving other nations. He pointed out that the United Slates has treaty obligations in the area, such as the Anzus treaty with Australia and New Zealand. Kennedy declined to elaborate on the possibility of U.S. entry into a shooting war but pointed out again in answer to a question that "war can and will spread if this continues." Malaysia, a British Commonwealth nation, was formed last September through a federation of Malaya and Singapore and the British Borneo territories of Sarawak and North Borneo. Indonesia has threatened to "crush" Malaysia on grounds it is an extension of British colon- ialiam. The Philippines also opposes Malaysia because it disputes ownership of North Borneo (Sabah). Although Philippine protests have been relatively mild. Indonesian sponsored guerrillas have had frequent clashes with Malaysian and British forces in Borneo border areas and there has been real danger a full- scale war would develop. With this in mind, Johnson sent Kennedy to Asia January 15. The attorney general conferred with President Sukarno of Indonesia in Tokyo and Djakarta, with Philippine President Diosdado Macapagal, and with Malayan Prime Minister Tengku Abdul Rahman, before moving on to talks with Thai officials in Bangkok. He met with British leaders, including Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas - Home in London before returning to Washington Monday night.

Negroes march in Atlanta ATLANTA (UPI) — Militant young Negroes staged a chanting march around a segregated restaurant Monday night that almost erupted into violence. Police arrested 116 persons during the third consecutive day of racial demonstrations. White and Negro patrolmen twice had to push back surly, screaming Negroes while other officers loaded demonstrators into paddy wagons. The demonstrators had thrown themselves into the street and linked arms in a human chain. Negro and white spectators crowded into the alley-like street, one block from Leb's Restaurant, the object of the protest march, despite the efforts of police to keep the crowds moving. nearby Long Beach Thursday. USAF reports jet missing in Germany WIESBADEN, Germany (UPI) —The U. S. Air Force said tonight a T39 jet trainer with three men aboard was hours overdue on a routine training flight. The American Embassy in Bonn said it was checking a report that the plane was shot down over Communist East Germany. A spokesman at U. S. Air Force European Headquarters here said a search was being pressed for the missing T39 utility jet trainer which failed to return on schedule to the air base here. The three Americans aboard the plane were identified as Lt. Col. Gerald A. Hannaford, 41, Jacksonville, Fla., Capt Donald G. Millard, Ukiah, Calif., and Capt. John F.

I 500 warned to leave homes as rain weakens dam By United Press International An estimated 500 persons were warned today to leave their homes below a rain-weakened dam southwest of Portland, Ore. A weekend of torrential rains sent water pressing against the 12-foot dam which feeds Oswego Lake from the Tualatin River. The dam was holding early today, but water was pouring over its top. Persons living in the area were advised to flee and 75 policemen and reserves were sent to help them. Police estimated the inhabitants of 20 houses just below the dam had left during the night, some in their night clothes. Elsewhere in the nation, subzero cold bit into the Midwest and up to five inches of snow fell along the eastern shores of the Great Lakes. Hibbing, Minn., was the nation's coldest spot with 21 degrees below zero, and cold wave warnings went out for Iowa, eastern Nebraska, and Northwest Missouri. U.S. team wins McNamara bets on solid fuel Minuteman missile WASHINGTON (UPI) — De fense Secretary Robert S. McNamara is betting heavily on the solid-fueled Minuteman in- tcr-contincntal ballistic missile in his future plans for the nation's strategic forces. As laid before the House Armed Services Committee Monday, McNamara's long- term plans call for phasing out a total of 128 liquid-fueled ICBMs while greatly improving the accuracy and range of the Minuteman. The improvement program will cost an additional $500 mil lion through fiscal 1969, but may pay for itself in reduced maintenance costs. McNamara told the committee that it costs about $1 million a year to maintain the liquid-fueled variety, compared to only $100,000 a year each for the Minuteman.

Marina Oswald thanks Americans DALLAS (UPI)—Marina Oswald, unsure of her English but calm and determined, Monday night thanked Americans for their generosity and told them they "have very big hearts." The attractive Russian-born widow of Lee Harvey Oswald, accused of assassinating President Kennedy, told a national television audience she had roots in Texas and wanted to stay here. She said she did not want to believe her husband was the assassin but "I have to watch facts and facts tell me that Lee shot Kennedy." Her appearance, an exclu­ sive copyright interview with News Director Eddie Barker of station KRLD, was broadcast on Walter Cronkite's "New Round" (CBS). "I want to be (an) American citizen after I study English," she told Barker. "Rachel (her 3-month-oId daughter) was born here and Lee's funeral was in Texas and I like to stay. I want to live here." After the interview Mrs. Marguerite Oswald, Lee Oswald's mother, said from her Fort Worth home that Marina was disillusioned because she had been held in seclusion by the Secret Service too long, "Her 'facts' that led her to believe that Lee killed the President are only conclusions," the 56-year-old grandmother said. The elder Mrs. Oswald said the Secret Service "whisked" her daughter-in-law away when the two met by chance Sunday at Oswald's grave in Fort Worth. "This is not the American way..." Mrs. Oswald said. The 22-year-old widow requested protective custody by the Secret Service shortly after the assassination. But she said "I am not under arrest. I am free to go (shopping or any place else." She said she visited her husband's grave once or twice a week and felt sorry for him "because he died very young." Marina Oswald was a pharmacist in Minsk, U.S.S.R. when she met and married Oswald after he defected to Russia. Recently she began to study English. The mother of two thanked the nation for donations exceeding $35,000. "I want to thank very much .. .but my bad English don't give me to say too much. 1 want to say. ..thank you. American people, thank you for me and my children..." 27 Atlas "D" ICBMs, but McNamara said in a long "posture" statement submitted to the committee that 27 Atlas "E" and 54 Titan I missiles will be discarded "sometime later."

The Titan I missiles are at Beale AFB, Marys- villc, Calif.; Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, Larson AFB Moses Lake, Wash.; Ellsworth AFB, Rapid City, S.D., and Lowry AFB, Denver, Colo. The improvement program for the Minuteman involves an intermingling of the Minuteman I and the Minuteman II, along with what McNamara called an "internetting" of their communications and con trol systems. Chinese put de Gaulle on the spot PARIS (UPI) — The Chinese Communists and Nationalist China put French President Charles de Gaulle on the spot- today by warning him bluntly that he must deal with only one of their rival Chinese governments. The warnings from Peking and Taipei, just a day after De Gaulle announced recognition of Communist China, threatened to throw French diplomacy into at least temporary disarray. The Chinese Communists, in a statement broadcast from Peking, declared they had agreed to establish diplomatic relations with France on the "understanding" that France would recognize the Peking regime as "the sole legal government of China." In Paris, the French government promptly denied it had made any commitment to recognize Peking as the sole legal government of China. A foreign office spokesman said no agreements were made beyond the bare statement in Monday's joint communique that diplomatic relations would be established and ambassadors named by the two governments within Liz, Richard secretly fly to Canada LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton secretly departed by plane today en route to Toronto, Canada, skillfully eluding all the press and photographers who covered their five-day stay here. Burton and Miss Taylor, carrying no luggage, drove to International Airport about noon today. They boarded TWA Flight 26 for Chicago, arriving there at 6:12 p.m. CST. The amorous couple then will transfer to another plane for Toronto. Their departure for Chicago was in marked contrast to the near mob scene precipitated when their chartered plane arrived from Puerto Valarta, Mexico, last Wednesday. Burton and Miss Taylor earlier cancelled plans to go by train when reporters discovered their plans. Burton must go to Toronto to prepare for the play, "Hamlet." Miss Taylor and Burton went unnoticed at the airport today, sitting in a lounge before board-! ing the plane. Miss Taylor on one occasion strolled into the airport gift shop to buy a book. The couple used the names of 'Walter Rule" and "Miss Rosamund Sutherland." French officials also reiterated France does not plan to break relations with the Chinese Nationalists and that any break would have to come from their side. At the same time Nationalist China, which is considering a diplomatic break with France, asked the French government to clarify its decision to recognize Red China. A spokesman for Chiang Kai- shek's Kuomintang party said the French announcement on recognition of Peking was vague and was taken in Taipei to mean that De Gaulle was trying to force the Chinese Nationalists into making the next move on diplomatic relations. The spokesman said the Nationalists "will stick to our basic policy of not agreeing to a two China policy..." Put On Spot The public statements made in Peking and Taipei put De Gaulle on the spot to make his choice. It was reported the French president was content to risk a possible break witt Nationalist China as the price for recognizing Red China. TOKYO (UPI)—Secretary of State Dean Rusk said today the United States never will abandon the Nationalist Chinese to Communist tyranny or recognize a hostile government in Peking. In his first speech since France recognized Communist China Monday, Rusk said the Peking regime of Mao Tze-tung should not be rewarded for its militant policies. He said the Chinese Reds demonstrate only contempt for basic conditions of peace. Later at a news conference, Rusk said he does not expect any changes in Red China's policies that would warrant recognition of the Peking regime during bis tenure in office. "Free nations must not reward the militancy of Peking or give Communists anywhere any ground for hope of profit from the use or threat of force," Rusk said. >
