IF PAPER IS MISSED- CALL 663-3114 GREENSB URG DAILY NEWS Section Two Greensburg, Ind., Thursday, Aug. 26,1965 British White Paper Says U.S. Might Quit Bombing By K.C. THALER LONDON (UPI)—The United States might consider a prolonged cessation of air attacks against North Viet Nam if the Communist regime cut back military activity in South Viet Nam, it was reported today. An official British govern ment white paper said the American position was communicated to Britain by the U.S State Department earlier this month in a lengthy policy outline. Last May, U.S. planes stopped bomtoing North Viet Nam for a five-day period. The State Department said the cessation of air action failed to produce any reaction from the Hanoi regime.

CLOSED MONDAYS ADMISSION COVERS ALL RIDES 1700 West 30th Indianapolis, Ind. summarizing Viet Nam peace efforts, said: "The United States does not rule out the possibility of another and perhaps more prolonged suspension in the bombing of North Viet Nam if Hanoi gives some clear indication that there would take place appropriate and commensurate actions in relation to the infiltration and military action in South Viet Nam and the presence of North Vietnamese personnel." The communication from the State Department was dated Aug. 8. "The U.S. government initiation of a pause in the bombing of North Viet Nam in mid-May and the communication of its intentions to Hanoi (at that time) were undertaken in order to explore the path of possible peace talks," the Washington document said. "At that time, North Viet Nam made it completely dear that it would not respond." Other points made by the State Department: —"In the absence of any indication that North Viet Nam is prepared for a solution by some path, the U.S. government remains fully committed to use whatever resources and military force are necessary to protect the people of South Viet Nam against outside - directed Communist aggression." —The United States would not object to Viet Cong representatives participating in any peace talks "as part of the delegation" of North Viet Nam. —The basic American peace designs represent "in principle a return to the basic concept of the Geneva accords of 1954'" which partitioned North and South Viet Nam after the Indochina war. "Whether their relization would involve the re-aiffirma- tions of these accords or new agreements which would embody these essential points, perhaps providing for more effective international machinery and guarantees, could be worked out in discussions and negotiations," the document said.

MURPHY BUILDING—TUESDAY AND THURSDAY PHONE 662-5791 House OKs Immigration Reform Bill WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson's sweeping immigration reform bill, given a thumping vote of approval by the House, may be headed for trouble in the Senate with some pruning of immigration quotas in prospect. The House, heeding the Chief Executive's plea to strike down the "shameful" national origins quota system, voted by an overwhelming 318 to 95 Wednesday night in favor of a massive overhaul of U. S. immigration policy, the first in more than 40 years. A Senate judiciary subcommittee considering the bill was to meet today to discuss a proposal by Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N. C., which would place a definite limit on the total immigration permitted each year. Ervin believes the limit should be about 300.000, but he has indicated he is not wedded to that figure. Under the House measure, an immigration "pool" would be established of 170,000 persons a year, with no ceiling set on western hemisphere (Canada and Latin America) immigration. Thus annual immigration could increase to about 340,000, compared to the average total of 281,922 during the last 10 years. Ervin is also backing imposition of a ceiling on western hemisphere immigration — a measure rejected by the House Wednesday and opposed by the State Department — but his plan would not have that ceiling go into effect until 1968. There has never been such a ceiling in the past. Prospects for swift approval of the House bill by the Senate were mixed since Sen. James 0. Eastland, D-Miss., who is chairman of the immigration subcommittee and its parent Judiciary Committee, is opposed to the legislation.

On this day in history: In 1920, the 19th Amendment went into effect, giving women the right to vote. In 1934, Adolf Hitler said he wanted peace with France but also demanded tne return of the Saar to Germany.

Hubert Humphrey were nominated at Atlantic City to head the Democratic ticket for the November elections. cause friends of the elderly farmer said he feared them. David Holloway, Hale County deputy sheriff, said doctors did not expect Smaw to Jive. He has been in a coma since the attack. Smaw, a "well thought of" Negro landowner, was seen in Greensboro Saturday and had spoken out against the picketing of downtown stores by civil rights demonstrators. The next day he was found sprawled bleeding and near death in the doorway of his small farmhouse near here by relatives. Smaw's tongue had been pulled o u t as far as possible and cut off with a sharp instrument "all the way back to his tonsil," the deputy said. Gov. George Wallace posted the maximum state reward of $1,000 and dispatched a state investigator here. FBI agents also were on hand. Holloway said "I believe there are more people involved in this" than the two suspects, David Lee McAlpine, 19, and Roosevelt Long, 21, who were jailed on suspicion of assault but had not been charged. AF Embarks on $1.5 Billion Manned Spacecraft Program By CHARLES W. CORDDRY WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Air Force embarked on a $1.5 billion program today to develop America's first manned military spacecraft, with orbital flights to start in little more than three years. Officials said contracts will be negotiated with industry "as soon as possible" to produce the Manned Orbiting Laboratories (MOD authorized by President Johnson Wednesday after two years of Pentagon study. Some of the five MOLs now planned — possibly the first one — will be blasted into near- polar orbits from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., enabling the two-man crews to observe the entire earth every 24 hours during month-long stays in space. Would Overfly U. S. S. R. Thus, they will become the first U. S. manned spacecraft to overfly the Soviet Union, though Russian cosmonauts have traveled in orbits that cross the United States. The purpose of the military MOL, Johnson said, is to gather "new knowledge about what man is able to do in space. . . (and to) "relate that ability to the defense of the nation." The President .repeated America's intention not to putt mass destruction weapons in space, stating that "the heavens belong to all the people." A defense official said that at this point in history it would not make "any kind of sense" to put such weapons in space anyway. Rockets aimed at an enemy on earth, for example, can be shot much more aceu- HOOSIER AMONG MISSING WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Defense Department Wednesday listed a Marine from Indiana among the missing aboard a military transport bound for Viet Nam which crashed Tuesday at Hong Kong. Officials said Cpl. John W. Lake, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold V. Lake, Hobart, Ind.. was among the missing on the craft. The military uses the term "missing" to denote men believed actually missing and those not identified. rately from earth. Have Other Uses Military " spacecraft have many other uses, however, and some of these are suggested by the -acute observations being made by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts now orbiting in Gemini-5. In particular, L. Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad were able to observe and meas- ure radiation characteristics of a Minuteman missile launched from Vandenberg, and saw clearly "all the streets" in Jacksonville, Pla. If missile shots and city streets can be seen within the United States from a small capsule speeding on its East-West orbit, they can be seen elsewhere and better from a big laboratory surveying the whole earth daily from polar orbit. •MOORE'S- GIBSON 15 CU.
