WASHINGTON (UPI) —President Johnson's farm bill went before the House today, its Trip (Continued from Pace One) stages than the Manry voyage from Falmouth, Mass., to Falmouth, England. He left Plymouth on July 30, 1964 and stopped in Spain, the Azores, and Bermuda. Sighted From Land In New York the National Association of Engine and Boat Manufacturers, clearing house for boating information, said the Tinkerbelle was the smallest sailboat known to have made a solo crossing of the Atlantic non-stop. The Tinkenbelle first was sighted from land here at 8 a.m. (3 a.m. EOT) today when it was off Lizard Point at the entrance to the English Channel. Mrs. Manry, 46, her daughter Rotiin, 13, and son Douglas 11, sailed aboard a small vessel to meet the 48-year-old copy reader of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. It will be the first time the children have seen their father since late in May. At 10 a.m., the boat was 8 miles south-southeast of Lloyd's Lighthouse on the Lizard, barely 17 miles from the end of Manry's 3,200-mile voyage. A British Air Force launch which pulled alongside said the Tink- erbelle was making very little headway in near-calm weather against a heavy tide. Alttough the Lizard is commonly regarded as the end of an Atlantic crossing Manry will not consider his marathon journey ended until he passes Black Rock touoy, which marks the Falmouth harbor. The harbor master's boat and the customs launch Mongoose will meet the Tinkerbelle at the buoy to stamp his passport and inspect his "cargo." The mayor and city officials of Falmouth had prepared a civic welcome, and thousands of vacationers were waiting for a glimpse of the solo voyager. Embraces Wife Mrs. Manry went 55 miles out to sea in the trawler Excellent Monday to meet the Tinker- belle after it was sighted by another fishing boat. Manry maneuvered his little boat alongside the trawler and his wife dropped to the deck beside him. They clung together while cameramen aboard the Excellent recorded the scene. "I guess I ought to kiss mother earth first, but you have beaten me to it," Manry grinned. "You look great." H refused an invitation to board the trawler, determined to complete his crossing aboard the Tinkerbelle. The couple remained together for about an hour, then Mrs. Manry clambered back to the trawler and, with a cheery wave, her husband set sajl again for Falmouth. .f Decatur County In the Service Pifc.

Dillon ruled today that a 1965 law gives township school teachers the same tenure rights enjoyed by teachers in school cities and school town corporations. The opinion had been requested by State Superintendent of Public Instruction William E. Wilson, who asked if township school teachers were included in the new law and, if so, whether township teachers who have already- been employed five or more successive years hi the same system 'become tenure teachers with the next contract., they sign after the law becomes effective July 1, 1967. • Answer Is "Yes" The answer to -both questions was "yes." 1 Wilson estimated that j;lje opinion affects from "20 to 25 per cent" of Indiana's 44,000 'public school teachers. Dillon wrote that "in spite of the .laguage in the teacher which indicates that the statute presently applies to any teacher serving under contract in any school city or £eheol town corporation," he believes all teachers employed by public schools, including township school corporations, 'are. included under the new law. He said also, "It is my opinion that any teacher who has served in a public school corporation for five or more suc- 'cessive years before July 1, 1967, under a regular contract, and who.after that date enters into his sixth or more year regular teaching contract with that corporation for services to be rendered during 1967 - 68, will become a permanent teacher." Considerable Turnover Wilson pointed out that township school teachers had not enjoyed tenure status since 1933. He said that lack of permanent status had contributed to considerable turnover of teachers in township schools in the past but that because of a teacher shortage - such shifting had not been so marked in recent years. However, Dillon pointed out, "If the sixth or more regular teaching contract of such a teacher and school corporation for 1967-68 is entered into before July 1, 1967, the teacher will not become a permanent teacher unless and until he enters into a regular and definite contract after that date." The distinction made by Dillon would mean that teacehrs who normally had signed their contracts for next fall with a township school corporation before July 1 would not enjoy tenure status until the 1968-69 school year.
