Roger D. Branigin has indicated that he plans to accord top priority to the Indiana effort to secure ( the new nuclear accelerator installation of the Atomic Energy Commission. , .. Already, a top-flight group is working on amassing information that will be of assistance to the Indiana presentation. Indiana has all of the requisites for this multi-million dollar installation: Location in the nation; suitable areas; higher educational facilities; and cultural opportunities. Not only would such an installation mean the influx of some 2,000 top scientists would mean establishment of one of the most important nuclear centers of the nation in Indiana. • Such a facility would attract scientists from the United States and foreign nations. In importance to the future of Indiana's economy, the project ranks in scope with the Hoosier Port on Lake Michigan. The preferred site appears to be in the area of Eagle .Creek Reservoir north of Indianapolis. A tract in Southwestern Marion County, Camp Atterbury and Jefferson Proving Ground have been suggested. In all probability, the state site committee appointed by Gov. Branigin will narrow its case down to one or two locations. The Camp Atterbury area might have some advantages. The Indiana governor has indicated that it may be necessary to call a special session of the Indiana General Assembly to make certain that some of the requirements of the Atomic Energy Commission can be met. The Indiana quest for selection as the site for the nuclear accelerator site is of such importance to the future of Indiana that it merits a special legislative session, if there is any question about the ability of the Hoosier State to meet any requirements. ' DALLAS; (UPI) - Jack Ruby's brother charged ,in court today that Melvin Belli. and J H. Tonahill neglected Ruby in 'his murder trial to make a movie. The story about the • movie came out jn a hearing |to determine whether Tonahill will be fired as Ruby's lawyer. Ruby and his family want/to get Tonahill out of the. case,; but Tonahill maintains that Ruby is insane and that he (Tona- hill) has a "moral and legal obligation" to stand by him. Ruby, 47, was found guilty March 14, 1964 of murdering Lee Harvey Oswald, President Kennedy's assassin, and sentenced to the electric chair. The case is now on appeal. In response to a question as to when they first decided they wanted Tonahill out, Earl Ruby said that he started thinking about a change in counsel during the actual murder trial. ' "I was thinking about making a change during the trial, especially when I learned they were making a movie and were not spending enough time with my brother and with the witnesses.-" Weekend Traffic Takes Eight Lives By United Press International Two double-fatality accidents helped push Indiana's traffic death toll to at least 521 during the weekend: compared with 431 a year. ago.

Makes Radio Address Imbert made a 20-minute radio and television address in which he said his government would be dedicated to progressive legislation when peace is restored. The day was quiet with only scattered gunshots heard. "Liberty will never be in danger under a government I lead," the junta leader declared.

The United States this week is expected to withdraw about 1,700 of the estimated 21,500 Marines and paratroopers on duty here. American officials now feel the Dominican Republic will not fall, victim to a Communist takeover. They also indicate they have reason to believe there will be no further heavy fighting.
