If Indiana were selected for the site, the question would be how much money the state would have to spend and how soon. Branigin said he was counting on the advisory committee also for an objective decision on which of several sites proposed appears most nearly to meet the AEC criteria. "I don't want to eviscerate my own people" by setting off an intrastate fight, Branigin said. He pointed out that the technical committee said a site on Eagle Creek northwest of Indianapoles meets practically all of the criteria with the possible exception of humidity. But he said that Terre Haute, New Albany and Mishawaka- South Bend also are bidding for the site. "Earthquake - free, jet, air travel, academic atmosphere, water, good highways, these we have," Branigin said. "There are very few who have more than we have." The Eagle Creek site has the "urther advantage that Purdue University owns a considerable portion ihough of the some land needed al- additional land would need to be acquired. To Make Reports Purdue University President Frederick L. Hovde and Indiana Jniversity President Elvis J. Stahr are co-chairmen of Bran- .gin's advisory committee and joth are expected to make reports at today's meeting along with Dillon and Indiana Department of Administration chairman John Hatchett. The committee also includes ;aders of the Indiana G Assembly who would be in a position to implement almost immediately a call for a special session if Branigin indicates one is necessary. The deadline for presentation of the AEC proposed sites is June 15. One of Branigin's administrative assistants said he doubted that arrangements for a special session could be com pleted for the lawmakers to meet yet this week and the next week. Branigin also summoned leaders of the legislature for a con- erence Wednesday morning. Aides said it was possible the ;overnor would wait until then o announce publicly his deci- :ion on a special session. State Rep. James S. Hunter, D-East Chicago, majority caucus chairman in the House, said ie has been discussing a special session with as many lawmakers as he could reach since he matter came up. "I believe that if there is a pecial session, it will be held o one day, using suspension of ules, and that all of the gdver- or's vetoes will be upheld, in- luding the one on abolishing apital punishment," he said. Hunter said if any subject other nan the atomic facility were irought up, the session would ;et out of control on length. But Rep. Robert Bridwell, D- ndianapolis, chairman of the flarion County legislative dele- ation, said he believes one or other subjects could be rought up although he con- eded it might be three days ustead of one. Bridwell told a news cbnfer- nce the Marion County delega- on will support the governor in the event it is necessary to all a special session." Bridwell said he would vote 1 override the veto on repeal capital punishment and beeves it is possible the veto ould be overriden.

Daily New*, Tueifcy, Jan* 1,1965 PACE 3 , §4, Swaps Habit s Clothes By LEONARD ADAMS 'ST. LOUIS, Mo. (UPI)-Sister Francetta Barberis began, a new job- today in brand new attire. After 47 years as a nun, Sister Francetta hung her habit in the closet and donned layman's garb to begin her new job as a coordinator in President Johnson's Job. Corps. Sister Francetta, 64, was president of Webster College >. in Webster Groves, Mo., for seven years until she took her new job. Now, instead of living in a convent, she will live in. a Washington, D.C., apartment, and travel around the country helping to set up Job Corps centers where young women 16 to 21 can be trained to become skilled workers, housewives and responsible citizens.' Sister Francetta is still very much a nun. She took her new job only with special permission from the head of her order, Sister Mary Luke Tobin, superior general of the Sisters of Loretto. "I didn't intend for this to happen," Sister Francetta said. "I wasn't aware that it Parade at Mitchell— Grissom Says It's Good to Be Home MITCHELL, Ind. (UPI)—Maj. Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom returned to his hometown here Sunday and told a crowd of nearly 30,000 persons, "it's good ;o be home where the people along the parade route are old friends and familiar faces." Grissom and his wife and two sons, plus his parents and his wife's parents, were guests of lonor Sunday for the celebration to honor the first American to command a two-man space ship and the first human to fly through outer space twice. Viet (Continued from Page One) ter fighting near Quang Ngai may run as high as 700 killed and wounded, believed to be :he highest yet for any single Battle in the war. Two U.S. military advisers were among the Quang Ngai dead and a U.S. military spokesman in Saigon reported today :hat two other Americans were tilled in scattered ground ac:ions against the Viet Cong Sunday and Monday and nine Americans were wounded. In the air'war against North Viet Nam today, Communist anti-aircraft gunners shot down a U.S. Navy plane but the pilot was rescued. The Navy plane, an Crusader jet, was downed during a raid on the railroad :reight yard at Vinh, a coastal city about 160 miles south of Hanoi. The pilot ejected from the crippled jet and parachuted into the South China Sea. He was picked up 10 minutes later in ood condition by an Air Force amphibious plane. In another raid, two U. S. Vavy Skyraiders inflicted "moderate damage" on three rail- •oad boxcars near Quang hong, then blasted craters in highway 15 just north of Vinh. The Communist force which attacked Quang Ngai withdrew nto the hills overlooking the city in the face of heavy bombardment by U.S. Air Force planes flying aroundrthe-clock ground support sorties during he battle. American air power in lie area was strengthened to- lay when a U. S. Marine air- trip at Chu Lai was declared iperational. The base is just lorth of Quang Ngai. It was the first time the astronaut has returned to his hometown since completing the orbital flight in the two-man Gemini space capsule "Molly Brown." The townspeople represented by 'Mitchell Mayor James A. Fortner presented Grissom with a plaque and 9th District Rep. Lee Hamilton gave Gus, as he is known in the community of 4,000, the flag which flew over the Capital in Washington the day of the historic journey. "Betty and I and the boys have been in quite a few • parades the last couple of months, and they have all been wonderful," Grissom said. "But it's good to be home where the people along the parade route are old friends and familiar faces. We thank you very much for this tribute and my partner, John Young, sends his regards." The astronaut also told Hamilton the flag would be too large to 'fly over his Texas home, so he presented it to Mitchell High School, to fly over the building where he attended classes. Grissom's sons, Scott, 15, and Mark/11, took advantage'"of the trip to play with cousins and neighborhood youngsters a t their grandparents' home. Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Grissom and the astronaut's wife's parents all are Mitchell natives. The family flew to Indianapolis after the celebration in a plane borrowed from race driver Jim Rathmann, where he participated in "500 Festival" activities prior to the 500- mile race.

With her 65th birthday, approaching, she announced in March she would resign as president of Webster. At the same time she revealed her new job. "Mine is a service order which makes it especially appropriate to engage in a new type of service in the antipoverty program," she said. "I want to keep at it as long as I feel fit for the work." Job Corps officials, however, asked Sister Francetta to change to street clothes for the new job. "Having .to change my garb was a natural outcome of the work I am going to do. The kind of clothes a persons wears doesn't mean a whole lot," she said. "It makes no difference whether a person wears the religious habit or the clothes of a layman.
