Churchill Home Is Sold for $287,000 LONDON (UPI)—The mellow brick house where Sir Winston Churchill lived and died was sold today for $287,000 to an unidentified British family trust. Samuel Percival Simpson, acting for the trust, bought No. 28 Hyde Park Gate within four minutes of the start of the auction. His was the second offer after the bidding opened at $280,000. There had been speculation before the auction thai a trust would buy it to preserve it as a memorial to the statesman and wartime leader. The 19th century house was sold together with the adjoining No. 27, which' Churchill used for his secretarial staff. The auction was ordered by Churchill's widow, Lady Spencer-Churchill, who did not want to sell the homes privately because of their historic significance. She has moved to a nearby apartment. Hyde Park Gate is a quiet 45 Miles Up EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (UPI)—The X15 was flown to an altitude of almost 45 miles Wednesday by test pilot John McKay to measure noise and potential stress hazards on future space vehicles. The No. 3 X15 carried five special microphones to record noise intensity on the boundary layer of air flowing around the surface of the plane. A horizon scanner mounted on the rear of the fuselage also was used to "closely define" the earth's horizon as the X15 reached a height of 237,000 feet and a speed of 3,477 miles an hour or mach 4.7. dead-end street in London's Kensington section: Churchill bought No. 28 for $84,000 in 1945.

Vanderbur, Stephen Vanderbur, Dale Rice and Harry Trackery Jr. BAHAMAS AREA NASSAU — The British colony of the Bahamas consists of about 3,000 islands and covers an area that stretches out to more than 800 miles in length. Apportion (Continued from Pace One) had talked in terms of adjourning sine die, thereby cutting off return on their own initiative, but state Sen. Nelson Grills, D-Indianapolis, changed their minds for them. Grills let it be known that next week he will be filing an amended complaint with the three-judge federal panel which ruled Indiana's last two reapportionment .plans unconstitutional. Such an action will have the effect of challenging the constitutionality of the new maps produced during 10 days of a special session. Grills said his amended complaint will allege that the Senate's first-choice plan, drafted by President Pro Tern Jack Mankin, D-Terre Haute, is unconstitutional. He said that a similar challenge to the House's top priority plan will be made by other' attorneys in the continuing federal court case seeking to achieve "one man, one vote" status in Indiana. Both of the top priority plans were signed into law by Governor Branigin Wednesday night, about an hour before the Senate adjourned at 10:32 and the House at 10:33 p.m. until Nov. 22. Branigin was advised by Atty. Gen. John J. Dillon "since the date of enactment of a statute of the Secretary of State, it is important to the fruition of the General Assembly's intent that the several acts, if approved, be approved in the order in which they are enacted." The legislature approved a total of eight reapportionment plans, four for the Senate and four for the House, and the order of their priority was set by the lawmakers. Grills said that if he was successful in challenging the constitutionality of.the first-choice Mankin plan, he would next LAYTON'S...

LAYTON'S STORE FOR MEN WEST SIDE SQUARE seek to determine the court's view on the second-choice plan, and so on. "In every other area, the courts and the legislatures are feuding," Grills said. "What we have done here is very excellent. It points a way that can be used elsewhere in the country." GriHs, who more than any other man kept Hoosiers reminded for years of the injustice of unequal representation in the legislature, noted that in seven workin? days the lawmakers had achieved reapportionment. . Before the courts ruled Indiana's 1921 reapportionment law unconstitutional, the state had gone for 40 years without realigning its legislative representation, with the result the rural areas dominated the urban sections. 1963 And 1965 Acts Downed In rapid order, not only the 1921 law, but 1963 and 1965 laws were Wasted as unconstitutional resulting in Branigin calling this record second special session in the same year the lawmakers already had held a 61-day resular session. Grills predicted that the calling of special legislative sessions to handle specific problems, might become more frequent now that the 94th has demonstrated its ability to get in and out of the capital win "integrity and efficiency." A special session can run for a maximum of 40 days, once it is called by the governor. The lawmakers, in adjourning temporarily until Nov. 22, agreed to claim no per diem for the time they are in recess. However, they did vote, as their final act, doubling of their per- diem for this 10-day special session just concluded. This means the legislators will receive $40 per day expense money for the time they were in session, instead of S20, which is specified for regular sessions. The bill originated in the House, where it was approved, 66 to 18, then passed the 'Senate. 31-10. Termed "Pay-Grab Bill" ' State Sen. Morris Hall, R- Marion, had failed in an effort to blast from Judiciary A Committee his bill to exempt groceries from the 2 per cent sales tax by a 15-27 vote. Then, as the $40 per diem bill came up, he castigated the senators for "this pay-grab bill." He tried vainly to get the minority Republicans to unify against suspension of rules, blocking immediate passage of the pay bill. But only 9 of the lawmakers joined witfinSmi, so the' rules were suspended and the measure approved. State Sen. Robert Peterson, D-Rochester, as acting chairman of the Senate Finance Committee in the absence of Sen. Robert O'Bannon, D-Corydon, who left for Washington, defended the $40 expense biD. "If you don't have enough money to live in an Indianapolis hotel of motel, you cannot be in this legislature, and I don't think we want to tell anyone you can't afford to be a member of the legislature," Peterson said. The motion to return to Indianapolis Nov. 22—-or sooner if called by Mankin and House •Speaker Richard Bodine—specified that the lawmakers would come back without receiving the per diem. The return date would be only five days before the end of the 40-day life of a special session. "A Matter of Insurance" Bodine said he felt the decision to return "is a matter of insurance" in the event the federal court finds some changes must be made in the reapportionment plans of the House or Senate. Perhaps because of the pending return, or the shortness of the special session, there was almost none of the usual finale gaiety. Many of the lawmakers went home before the 10:30 p.m. time when the bills passed earlier Wednesday were returned in completed form for signing by Lt. Gov. Robert L.,Rock, president of the Senate, and Bodine. The second-choice plan of the Senate, a bill originally authored by Sen. Alan Klineman, D- Indianapolis, was delayed he- cause of a Lake County fight which was successful in getting revisions, including formation of this county as a single district with 5 senators. It passed Wednesday, 66-28 as did the 47- seat Senate plan, on which the vote was 62-26. The Senate corn- Dieted action on the last of the House plans also Wednesday with the vote on "Plan D" being 26-16. Hall filed a protest against "D" because lawmakers were handed only a copy of a map without a formal bill and said the matter would be brought to the attention of the federal judges. . In the House, Republican minority leader Otis Bowen of Bremen and Rep. John W. Donaldson, R-Lebanon, also entered formal protests against failure of the Democratic-controlled legislature to consider the 100- district reapportionment plan Greenslwrg (Ind J Daily Newi, Thonfcy, Oct. 28,1965 PACES Mother Critically III— Food Poisoning Kills Man, Son EVANSVILLE, Ind.

(UPI) — Mr. and Mrs. Howard Harlan vrere notified Wednesday nignt that their Air Force pilot son is missing on a routine training flight off Okinawa. Air Force officials said Lt. Robert Harlan II, a 1962 graduate of Purdue, was on a routine flight in a F-4C Phantom jet Monday night when his plane disappeared from radar screens about 50 miles off the island. An intensive search for the plane and the two men was under way, officials said. Harlan took off from Naha AFB on Okinawa. Jailer Convicted On Bribe Charges CROWN POINT, Ind. (UPI) — A Lake Criminal Court jury Wednesday night convicted Emmett Thomas, former Lake County, jailer, guilty on charges of bribery in a 1964 scandal involving sale of contraband to inmates. ' Thomas was the first of five indicted jailers to be tried. A jury of 10 men and 2 women deliberated less than two hours in finding him guilty of selling whisky, drugs and prostitutes' services to prisoners. Refugees (Continued (torn Page One) ning into bad weather," a Coast Guard spokesman said. A total of 375 refugees arrived here Wednesday in 15 boats, setting a one-day arrival record and boosting the number of Cubans who have fled their homeland under the four-week- old open door policy to nearly 2,000. Ship Missing The 2fWoot Esperanza left the Cuban embarkation port of Camarioca Tuesday carrying 30 persons. It was expected here Wednesday and when it didn't show up. The Coast Guard-said it was a "little concerned." An all-ships alert was issued for the Esperanza, although the Coast Guard said the boat was quite seaworthy and may be trying to avoid impoundment by dodging U.S. patrol boats. There ... ave been continued reports of the Cuban government trying to "make things look good" for boat crews arriving from Florida and 'refugees say this may be draining already rationed luxury items on the island. Forced Departure The skipper of the Gizmo, Rafael Garcia, said Castro militiamen were . forcing boats to leave the embarkation port despite high seas, making the 90- mile trip across the Florida Straits hazardous for some smaller boats. The Coast Guard, hoping to prevent a sea tragedy caused by the often Straits, has formed a "safety chain" of patrol boats across the Straits to within-10 miles of the Cuban coast. Public Health Service and immigration doctors worked at a feverish pace Wednesday to in- noculate the influx of refugees and care for those who became iffl during the rough crossing. A 54-year-old woman who arrived aboard the Seminole Wednesday night suffered a nervous breakdown several hours before the boat arrived and other arrivals on the Seminole told of going 24 hours without food and water and of being bothered by swarms of mosquitoes, as well as seasick.
