But this time a long shot paid off. New presses came on the American market and we went along with the great printing revolution, throwing away an entire plant and installing a rotary offset press and new composition equipment. The crowning achievement was the installation 6f a Berkey color separator— and now what used to be a private collection of color slides appears in process color (four-colors) in -your newspaper. Tomorrow's page is a layout of six 35mm. Kodaehromes each "blown up" to four-column width. All the work except for development of the original Kodachro me camera film (a process laboratory job in Dallas) was done In The Star building with our own crew. Your editor made the separation negatives on the Berkey machine, and the printing plates, registration and press work were done by Billy Dan Jones, mechanical superintendent, and Gene Allen, No. 2 pressman.

If the results coincide the job is O.K'd and sent on to the plate-makers and the pressroom. The separation negatives themselves have no color — only varying shades of gray. The color proof goes into a shadow-box in the pressroom so that the page- size transparency is lighted up as a guide to the press crew on what colors they have to produce on the press. It's a knuckle- busting job —but with luck the production team brings it off. There is no minor trouble with process color. Trouble is always major. On our last Color Show —Buffalo River and War Eagle Handcraft Fair, Nov. 24, the Berkey separation negatives were pronounced O.K. by Eastman Kodak —but we had disappointing results on the press, It turned out that we had worked too long with one batch of opened process inks, They had literally "died." .".'

Humphrey stirred a storm in the Senate today by ruling out of order an antiriot measure as an amendment to the pending civil rights bill, Sen. Spessard fc. Holland, D- Fla., appealed Humphrey's ruling, and a roll call vote was or* dered on whether to sustain the vice president. After protracted argument, however, Holland withdrew his appeal and Humphrey's ruling was vacated under an agreement to permit the antiriot measure to come to vote as an amendment. Then the antiriot proposal was modified by striking out language that some senators contended put the burden of proof on defendants. Sen. Philip A. Hart, D-Mich. ( floor manager of the civil rights protection-open housing measure, implored his colleagues not to take action that could jeopardize Its passage. Hart reported that the administration will submit its own antiriot legislation-later in the day or Wednesday. The antiriot !bill offered by Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.Cf, and Frank J. I^ausche, D-Ohio, is similar to a measure passed by the House last year. It has been bottled up in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Humphrey held that the Thurmond-Lausche bill was not germane as an amendment to the civil rights bill on which the Senate only Monday placed debate-limiting cloture. After Lausche challenged this ruling, Holland appealed to the Senate to overrule the vice president and, clear the way for a Vote on the antiriot proposal. « Lausche said it was a constitutional right of citizens to be protected from rioting and he couldn't understand " why it ren ( fiscalyear could be held that his and Thur- Johnson requested authority mond s amendment didn t go di- to n mit government pahments rectly to the subject matter of tor. drugs to what he termed a the. bill. reasonable cost.

HtGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) - Administration officials are trying to determine whether any UJS. admission of guilt and apology t6 North Korea would win re* lease of the intelligence ship Pueblo and 82 surviving crow* men captured six weeks ago. The basic problem President Johnson and his advisers face is whether the United States can or should admit and apologize for something—the Pueblo's al. leged intrusion into North Korean territorial water*-which officials say they don't believe the ship did. The apology issue came Into sharp public focus Monday with North Korea's broadcast of a letter to President Johnson which Pyong Yang Radio said was signed by all 82 crew members. The contents of the letter had already been dispatched to the President by U.S. negotiators at Panmunjom North Korea, who had received it from North Korean representatives. The letter claimed the Pueblo "Intruded Into the territorial waters" of North Korea at five different points. It said the crewmen believe "our repatriation can be realized only when our government frankly admits the fact that we Intruded Into the territorial waters of (North Korea) and committed hostile acts, and sincerely apologizes for these acts and gives assurance that they will not be repeated." The first concern of administration authorities was to try to .determine the authenticity of the signatures on the tetter* It was reported that the Ptnmun- Washington for study of 1 the signatures.

Hays, Jr., President of the bank, said the move was based upon results of an extensive survey conducted in Hempstead County. The survey Indicated that the growth of the area warranted a full-scale credit card facility of national significance —one that could be utilized in nearly all categories of business and professional service, Mr. Hays indicated the program would begin immediately. Aside from it.s similarity to credit cards which are presented to merchants in place of cash, BankAmericard differs radically from other established major credit cards.

Murton appointed prison superintendent, says the board of correction Is under no commitment to retain Murton In "any position whatsoever In the Arkansas prison system." Rockefeller told the board in a letter Monday that he did not think Murton's association with the prison system is "in the best interests of the^tate." Murton was '«» professor of penology at the University of Southern Illinois at Carbondnle when Rockefeller hired him last year as assistant prison superintendent in charge of Tucker Pri&n Farnv'Roqkefoller and. what was then the state penitentiary board dashed over the governor's demand that Murton be made superintendent. The heated disagreement resulted In the resignations of three non- Rockefeller appointees from the board and Murton's appointment as superintendent early this year. The unearthing of three human skoltons at Cummins Prison Farm Jan. 29 brought a rift between Murton and Rockefeller Into the open.
