Telephoto) Condition of MacArthur is still serious WASHINGTON (UPI) - Gen. Douglas MacArthur has shown signs of developing moderate pneumonitis in his right lung, Walter Reed Army Medical Center said today. Hospital officials described pneumonitis as "a condition of localized acute inflammation of the lung." They termed it a benign form of pneumonia. A medical bulletin issued in • mid-morning said tliat the general is "progressing satisfactorily" from his major operation on Monday. But it added that: "His condition is still regarded as serious. Since the last bulletin he has shown signs of a moderate pneumonitis at the base of his right lung. Appropriate antibiotics have been instituted. Cencession stand SACRAMENTO (UPI)—A temporary concession stand will open at the Hearst San Simeon state historical monument about May, Edward Dolder, chief of the Division of Beaches and Parks, said Wednesday. Bobby Baker probe all but officially ended WASHINGTON (UPI) — Theifund-raising function in Nevada. five-month-old investigation into the financial transactions of former Senate Aide Robert G. (Bobby) Baker today was all but ofjticially ended. Only one more possible witness, columnist Jack Anderson, still was under consideration. It was considered highly unlikely that he would be summoned to testify. Special counsel Lennox P. McLendon, who has guided the Senate Rules Committee investigation, said that Anderson would be interviewed again today by staff aides. There was no indication when the committee would meet to decide if Anderson should be called. Anderson was suggested as a witness by the committee Republicans. He is a director of Riddle Airlines which billed Baker for charter flight to a McLendon said the staff was already writing a report on the investigation. He said he hoped the investigation was concluded. Without revealing what recommendations for rtdcs of conduct for Senate employes that .the^ committee will propose, McLendon said it was "highly probable" that legislative hearings would be held. At a public hearing Wednesday, a staff accountant-investigator, Edward T. Huglcr, testified that he had found only minor errors in Baker's ta.x returns since 1959. He said the returns did not show "any substantial amount of error in either income or reductions." McLendon called the mistakes "unsubstantial errors" and said it was highly unlikely any fraud was involved. The committee was told of a mysterious, $40,000 "fee" listed I a loan or gift. on Baker's 1962 income tax re turn. Accountant Milton Hauft testified that Baker had instructed him, without elabora tion, to include the "fee" in in come listed on the return. Hugler said neither he nor the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had been able to trace the $40 000. Hauft said in reply to questions that he had no idea wheth er Baker received the S40,000 from the late Sen. Robert Kerr, D-Okla., or a Kerr enter prise. Responding to a query by Sen. Hugh Scott, R-Pa., the ac countant said he knew only what he read in newspapers about reported efforts by Bak er, before he resigned last Oc tober. to get a statement from Robert S.

(UPI) — AFL-CIO President George Meany sharply criticized White House wage-price guidelines today and said they could lead to government control of the economy. Meany challenged the guidelines m a speech to the United Auto Workers convention wtilch heard them reaffirmed Monday by President Johnson. The leader of the giant labor federation said he would ask the AFL-CIO to take a strong stand against the White House position that wages should not! cxccctf increases in productivity. "If we go down this road far enough, it leads to the end of tree collective bargaining, Meany said. "As far as I am concerned, I don't propose that labor at any time agree to go down this road." Meany said that the govern ment would have to propose guidelines for executive sala rics, stockholders dividends and corporation cash reserves once it gets into the wage-price field. He said it would be the first step toward government control of industry. Weird-looking design Lunar trip vehicle model goes on display 72 40 .09 sr 22 .48 65 33 .38 33 18 .02 28 -1 69 28 33 17 — 69 28 10 .04 62 37 64 44 20 14 75 48 33 19 72 45 62 42 38 31 .01 59 49 43 40 .04 74 57 BETHP.AGE, N.Y. (UPI)—A full-sized model of the weird- looking space vehicle in which the first Americans will land on the moon goes on public display today. The occasion was a conference of astronauts, scientists and space program officials at the Grumman Aircraft Engi neering Corp. plant here where principle design work on the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) has been undertaken. The purpose was to agree on a 'design freeze" for the interior shape. The exterior might appear to the layman as a good approximation of a plumber's nightmare. But a Grumman spokesman said, "what is shown here will, by and large, be the ultimate hardware version." ^Vhat astronaut Scott Carpenter, LEM project Manager William Rector, 10 astronauts in training and other National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials saw defies simple description. However, it is 20 feet tall, 10 feet in diameter, has four legs and Halloween pumpkin-like windows. The lower half will be left on the moon and act as a launch platform for the return of the upper half and the two astronauts in it to the mother ship—the Apollo command mod ule. President Johnson has said this is expected to take place by 1970. Until then, plans call for the use of nine other LEMs in preliminary space flights and as backup vehicles in prepara tion for this country's scheduled, manned round trip to the moon. Stossen enters race INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI)— Harold E. Stassen entered the Indiana GOP presidential preference primary Wednesday and offered himself as an "alternative" to Republicans who do not want Sen. Barry Goldwater as the party's 1964 standard- bearer. Goldwater rips McNamara, defense policies DETROIT (UPI)-Sen. Barry Goldwater left litUe doubt today that Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara and the administration's defense policy would be major targets in his flght to secure the Republican presidential nomination. Goldwater delivered a blistering attack on McNamara and the administration's policies in a speech to more than 3,500 members of the Econoniic Club of Detroit Wednesday night His speech was billed as a major policy statement in his campaign. The Arizona senator said Mc- N a m a r a "risks the peace through creeping weakness." "Robert McNamara may be the greatest bookkeeper we have ever had in government. He claims to have saved a lot of money. But he lost more morale in the military than any secretary of the services we ever] have had," Goldwater said. "The record of defense mismanagement has been obscured by the brilliance of news management. . .but the truth is apparent. We have no new strategic weapons." Goldwater, who is a major general in the Air Force re- ser\'e, said, "we are withdrawing into a fortress America. Our military morale is declining. And Robert McNamara is secretary of defense. "His ledger-sheet leadership is leading to a deterrent gap in the next decade. He sees the world in a rearview mirror. He sees the enemy through rose- colored glasses. He seeks defense through disarmament but he risks the peace through creeping weakness." Oil tanker snaps No action, Legislature adjouim In two off Norfolk By DE VAN L.

Governors protest Udall to let woter run through Glen Canyon WASHINGTON (UPI)—Interior Secretary Stewart Udall drew fire ftom four western governors Wednesday when he changed his mind about letting water run through Glen Canyon Dam. Udall had said earlier Wednesday be would postpone opening the outlet gates but announced later in the day the gates would be opened today in order to release water to build up storage in Lake Mead behind Hoover Dam. Gov. John Love immediately protested the action as "short sighted," and urged Colorado's congressional delegation to back him up, along with Govs. George Clyde of Utah. Jack Campbell of New Mexico and Clifford Hansen of Wyoming. The decision to release water from the Glen Canyon Dam was taken to mean a delay of about a year in power production at Glen Canyon. Love, who indicated a possibility of seeking a court injunction against the action, said Wednesday he was concerned with "the certainty that a po- tenb'al loss of $IS in revenue will result among the Colorado River storage projects" if ther« is a delay in storing water. Udall ordered the runoff so Lake Mead can be maintained with a minimum of 14.5 million acre feet. Udall said be ordered the outlet gates opened at the recommendation of Reclamation Commissioner Floyd E. Dominy. The secretary said 14.5 million acre feet must be in Lake Mead to enable generators at Hoover Dam to produce their rated capacity of 1,340,000 kilowatts. "This is the only possible decision which can be made at this time that will protect the federal investment and achieve the long-range objectives of the total development program," Udall said. He said the Bureau of Reclamation "will make a continuing review of the runoff situation," but indicated any final decision would be postponed pending water runoff developments in the Colorado Basin during the next two months. Udall advised the governors of the Upper Colorado River states of the runoff in a joint letter dated March 17. Chfcogo police ambush robbers, kill three CHICAGO (UPDr-Authorities today expanded. their hunt for supermarket bandit who slipped away from a police ambush Wednesday in which three other robbers were shot to death. A house-by-house search by; 200 officers Wednesday night turned up no trace of the desperado, identified as Chris Fan- teas. 28. aUas Michael Palasti. Police said Fanteas may have been wounded in the exchange, of gunfire which killed his three companions. Nine detectives — some of| them staked out in taxi cabs- met the bandits when they dashed firom a National Tea Co. food store with an estimated $10,000 shorfly after an armored car delivered several bags of money to the supermarket. The bandits reached their car, sped down the street but turned into an alley which police had sealed off. Two of the robbers smashed out the car's rear window with their gun butts and fired at police. All four then abandoned the car and scurried for cover behind the homes in the neigh-, borhood. Police opened fire.' Two bandits /ell dead in a gangway between bungalows and a third died on a front lawn. The slain bandits were identified as Neil McCauley, 49; Michael Parille, 37; and Russell Breadon, 40, all of Chicago. Police said all had robbery records. 13 below in Bismarcic Storms slug Midwest, foot of snow, zero cold By United Prts$ InftrntKonal Spring storms slugged the Midwest with wintry fury today.
