HUTNYAN WASHINGTON (UPI) — In a dramatic acknowledgement of the urban age, Congress has reshaped the upper echelon of government to add a cabinet department aimed at the city- dweller. Final congressional approval came Tuesday for legislation establishing the new "department of housing and urban development." All that is needed now is President Johnson's signature. The new agency was conceived in controversy and chances are it will continue that way in years to come. The urban department will be the first cabinet agency created since the department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) was set up 12 years ago. llth Department It will be the llth federal department and, at the beginning anyway, one of the smallest. The agency's future growth could >be as phenomenal as the metropolitan explosion that spawned, it Initially, the department of housing and unban development will be created merely by taking down one government sign and putting up another. The present Housing and Home Finance Agency (HHFA) — an independent federal agency — will -become the new urban department. The result will be creation of a new agency with about 14,000 employes, supervising government programs totaling about ?4.3 billion a year. In terms of work force, urban affairs will be the second smallest department in the federal government. Only the Labor Department has fewer em- ployes (about 9,000). No Exception The birth of a federal department is a rare enough event in Washington to cause considerable excitement. The Urban Affairs Department is no exception. Right' now, the most important question being asked is: "Who will run the department?" Municipal leaders who lobbied the law into existence and the congressmen and senators who voted for it are convinced the appointment will be the single most important factor in the agency's early stages of development^ High Marriage RIPLEY, Miss. (UPI) — Miss* Willie Sewell and L. L. Yanovicth, a carnival worker, will be married Friday at the annual Tippah County Fair. The wedding will take place atop a ferris wheel. Flower girls in other cars will sprinkle onlookers with flower petals. The reason is that the law gives the new unban secretary authority to set up the administrative structure, including the parceling out of responsibilities to an undersecretary and four assistant secretaries. How he divides these functions will determine the emphasis and direction of the de- IMPROVING CONDITION LONDON (UPI) — Ronald Armstrong-Jones, father of Lord Snawdon, Princess Margaret's husband, is "maintaining his improvement" at a hospital where he has undergone: treatment for the past few.months, a spokesman said today. partment's program, its infant years. Two Results Regardless of the personality of its secretary, creation of the new department is bound to hava two immediate results. One will be in the high councils of government where the voice of the city will be given full representation for the first time in U.S. history. "For a long time, we've needed to have a man at the cabinet table where the important decisions are made," one municipal leader said. He claimed that in the past the city impact has been ignored at - cabine t meetings where decisions were made on at least in the closing of military bases, new highway construction and other national issues. The second immediate effect of the new department was expected to be psychological. Urban leaders say it will focus increased national" attention on the problems of the city. Costly Bar , DUBLIN (UPI) — Michael Tarr, 18, was charged Tuesday with causing $350,000 damage to a candy factory. Police said the damage was caused by a fire which started after Tarr broke into the plant to steal a bar of chocolate.

State police investigators said he bills were in the $20, $10 ind $5 denominations and had een passed mostly . at lunch tands, through one of the coun- erfeit bills was taken for admission tickets at the gate. Police said the bogus bills vere passed during the first hree days of the fair and-that ome of them were turned up )y tellers in a branch bank set up at the fair where concession stand operators bring their receipts. Secret Service agents said the bills were -"fair" replicas of the eal money, though printed on lighter and slicker paper than he originals. They said the money.was similar to counterfeit bills passed in the Cincinnati area nearly two years ago. One concessionaire said Tuesday .he would refuse large bills rom all customers, while most ood stand operators passed the word around to employes to be on the lookout for the fakes. A waitress told authorities she took a fake $10 bill in exchange for a soft drink and a lot dog Monday night. She said she recognized the bill as phony and when she called the stand owner to look at it, the man who tendered it left without eating his food or getting bis change. ._ This could result in more at- ntion being devoted to the ur- an viewpoint on all national rejects in progress in the vast omplex of governmental agen- es. manac Today is- Wednesday, sept. 1, the 244th day of 1965 with 121 to follow. The moon is approaching its first quarter. The morning stars are Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. The evening stars are Venus, Mars and Saturn. American author Rex Beach was born on this day in 1877. On this day in.history: In 1878, the first female telephone operator was hired in Boston. In 1932, New York mayor Jimmy Walker resigned after an investigation of corruption by the Seabury Committee. In 1939, World War H broke out as Germany invaded Poland. In 1962, some 20.000 persons were killed when an earthquake struck in Western Iran. A thought for the day—American writer Irwin Shaw said: "I have a religion that wants to take heaven out of the clouds and plant it right here on the earth where most of us can get a slice of it."
