It would have provided I more liberal capital gains' treatment on certain profits. j The vote upheld the tax writ- 1 ing Finance Committee which! had stripped from the House j version of the bill a provision! liberalizing tax benefits en-j joyed by some persons who; profit from the sale of stocks[ or property. j Treasury officials had campaigned vigorously against the House provision, calling it an "unwarranted" $260 million benefit for the wealthy. Under prodding by President Johnson, the finance group struck it out and the Senate affirmed this! decision in today's vote. The vote came as the Senate launched a drive to complete work on the administration "must" measure by Friday or Saturday.

The petite widow, wearing a black coat but no hat, was escorted by Secret Service agents through a back door of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building where the seven-man commission has its hearing room and offices. District of Columbia police stood watch outside. Chief Justice Earl Warren, chairman of the commission, walked to the building from his chambers across the street. The Supreme Court now is in j a four-week recess. | Mrs. Oswald's lawyer said! she will spend "three or four days" telling the commission! in private about Lee Harvey i Oswald's activities before Nov. | 22. j Secrecy cloaked Mrs. Os- j wald's departure from Dallas, and arrival in Washington Sun-j day night by jet airliner. It was not disclosed where she is staying while in Washington. The 22-year-old Russian-born woman was accompanied by her 2-year-old daughter, June Lee; her business adviser, James Martin, and attorney John Thorne. Only last week, Mrs. Oswald told television interviewers that she was convinced that her late | husband killed Kennedy. | "I don't want to believe, but | I have too much facts and facts! tell me Lee shot Kennedy," she said in halting English. J. Lee Rankin, chief counsel for the commission, was expected to conduct the questioning of Mrs. Oswald. Her attorney is entitled to question her to clarify any testimony. The questioning was expected to cover her husband's alleged purchase of the Italian rifle used to kill Kennedy and wound Texas Gov. John B. Connally. Mrs. Oswald also will be asked to relate if her husband had any pronounced feelings about the late President in hopes of establishing some motive for the assassination. The commission has stressed that it hopes to end all rumors connected with the assassination. Along this line. Mrs. Oswald probably will be asked if her husband had any connection with nightclub owner Jack Ruby, who shot Oswald to death. Mrs. Oswald met her husband while he worked in Russia after defecting from the United States. When he returned, the State Department arranged to lend enough money to pay for both their fares to the United States. 10 killed in shuttle plane crash in Florida killed today when a shuttle air liner crashed and burned on Gainesville 260,000 students in New York school boycott NEW YORK (UPI)—Aproxi- mately 260,000 public school students peacefully boycotted the nation's largest school system today in an anti-segregation demonstration that integration WHY DIDNT THEY WORK? — The heartbreaking mystery ot Jet Propulsion laboratory in Pasadena today was why the six television cameras failed to operate yesterdoy morning as the Ranger 6 spacecraft approached the Moon in excellent position and then impacted, in this picture taken at Cape Kennedy before launch JPL engineers were checking out cameras that were supposed to transmit pictures back to the Goldstone station on the Mojave desert north of Barstow.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — More than 100 persons had gathered at the Washington headquarters of the National Aeronautics andj Space Administration to followl the progress of Ranger-6'sj flight. | They were linked by direct j jwirc with the Jet Propolsion | Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., (control center for the flight, where more than 200 persons were on hand for the historic occasion. Ranger's launch from Cape Kennedy, Fla., had been nearly as perfect as anyone could wish. Since the launch at 10:49 a.m., EST Thursday everything had gone beautifully. A mid-course correction maneuver, executed at 3:57 a.m., EST Friday had put the spacecraft in a near-perfect trajectory. No further course corec- tion would be necessary. Ranger-6 seemed certain to redeem five consecutive failures in the $152 million Ranger j program and, with its six | television cameras, get history's first close up picture of the moon. Smooth Flight In the final phase of Ranger's' plunge to the moon, every- j thing still was working perfectly. The tracking station atj Goldstone, Calif., was locked onto the spacecraft and its ra-l dio signal was coming in strong! and clear. Ranger carried two independent video camera systems. They were supposed to go into a five-minute warmup period 19 and 16 minutes before impact and, in the final 10 minutes and H gh Low P Boston 39 15 Chicago 35 29 Cincinnati 47 20 Denver 40 17 Fairbanks 30 4 Fort Worth 66 — Helena 35 13 Honolulu SI 71 Kansas City 60 41 Las Vegas 57 37 Los Angeles 74 47 Minneapolis 29 13 New York 44 20 Oklahoma City 64 41 Palm Springs 77 40 Phoenix 70 43 Sacramento 65 3S Salt Lake City- 32 3 San Francisco 65 53 Seattle 49 33 Washington 50 27 .07 the last 900 miles of the mission, take 3,000 photographs of the moon's surface. The loudspeaker voice from Pasadena said indications were that the cameras went into the warmup phase all right. Gold stone would soon be receiving pictures. But at impact minus 12 min utes (4:12 a.m. EST) the voice reported "no indication" that the cameras had gone from warmup to picture taking. At 4:13 a.m., "as yet no video." At 4:19 a.m., 5'h minutes before impact, "still no video." At impact minus 4 minutes, then 3'i, 2, ll=, 1, "still no video." At 30 seconds before impact, "still no video." No Video Impact time was only a few tenths of a second off the calculated moment. But—"still no video." By then what happened seemed almost incredible. At the climax two separate camera banks, each with two separate turn-on systems, had failed simultaneously. There were four chances that at least one of the television systems would work. Neither did. Dr. Robert C. Seamans Jr., associate administrator of the space agency, said it will take "a lot of detective work" to discover the cause of the television failure. Since last-moment emergency "commands" from Goldstone produced no results, it might be that the fault lies in the master switch aboard the spacecraft through which ground controllers routed their radio orders.

The picketing, boycott and demonstrations could develop into the nation's biggest protest against de facto school segregation — racial imbalance caused by housing patterns and other social factors, rather than by law. Special targets of the boycott and picketing were the 168 schools with 90 per cent or more Negro or Puerto Rican students and another 100 schools with at least 50 per cent non-white enrollment.
