The picket lines, set up before dawn by union guards protesting the employment of nonunion watchmen, turned away 1.886 of 2.597 construction workers at the S450 million moon rocket complex on Merritt Island. Brown's school aid bill voted by committee SACRAMENTO (UPI)-Gov, Edmund G. Brown's Aid-to-Edu cation Bill today won approval of the Senate Education Com mittee in a major victory for the administration. On a voice vote, the committee sent the bill (SB65) by Sen Albert Rodda, D—Sacramento, to finance committee for furth er action. The action came aft er a two-hour bearing. The measure would grant a to tal of $83.5 millloa in -additional {money for scBbols'during a two year period including $36.5 mil lion in state money, $28 from a countywide school tax and S19 million in the second year from Lang Beach tidelands oil revenue. However, as the committee was hearing the governor's bill, Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Un ruh was telling a news con ence that "some combination" of two other school finance measures seemed to have the most legislative support at this time. The measures were Unruh's own bill to cut the number of local school districts and Sen George Miller's proposal to abolish so-called "basic aid, under which local districts receive state money regardless of wealth. "But," said Unruh, "I don't know what will come out (of the Legislature this session) and I don't think even the dear Lord knows." Major opposition to Brown's bill came from Dr. Everett Calvert, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction, representing Superintendent Ma.x Rafferty. His complaint was that the bill did not contain enough ad ditional state money for local schools. James kin dead LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Mrs. Jo James Ross, 58, grand daughter of famed outlaw Jesse James, died Tuesday in her home here.

NLxon met for two hours today with Ambassadorj Henrj- Cabot Lodge, his running mate in the 1960 presidential elections. Ni.\on said they talked about "everything that was significant about this political year." The former vice president said he had no plans to seek the Republican presidential nomination this year. Asked whether the topic of a candidate was discussed, Nixon replied with a smile. 'Let's say we covered the waterfront." Lodge, emerging from the U. S. Embassy a few minutes after Nucon had returned to his hotel, said he had no comment on the talks. Nucon went directly from the airport to the embassy to call on Lodge. He said there •was some discussion of politics but that "it did not take up the major part of the time." He said "it was a very satisfac tory talk as far as getting a complete briefing on the situa tion in Viet Nam." Asked about a survey which placed him and Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania among the most likely presiden tial candidates.' Nixon said "I have made no change in my plans. I intend to make no change . . ." In an airport statement to newsmen, Nixon said he did not come to Viet Nam to talk about politics. But he criticized the Johnson administration's Viet Nam policy as weak, wavering and inconsistent Nixon said that any failure to maintain a firm stand against the Communists here would mark "the beginning of the end" for the United States in Southeast Asia. Alaskans ask massive federal aid WASHINGTON (UPI)- Alaska's tu'o senators said after a \Vhite House conference today that $500 million in federal funds would be needed to restore pub lie facilities and rehabilitate private businesses destroyed by the earthquake in Alaska. After a lengthy meeting with President Johnson and top federal officials. Democratic Sens. E. L. Bartlett and Ernest Gruening said the following plans were under consideration and action on them probably would be taken by the President in the immediate future: —Formation of a federal committee to work with a corre spending Alaska committee to coordinate plannmg for emergency assistance, plus the draft- Lag of a long-term reconstruction program. —A request to congress for a $50 million addition to the fed cral disaster loan fund, which now is down to $14 million. However. Gruening and Bart lett said they expected the administration would have to make a > number of unusual budget requests to Congress in addition to new funds for the disaster loan fund. Apparently in expectation that Johnson would act swiftly to set up a federal committee, Alaska Gov. William J. Egan was expected to arrive in Washington early next week with a group of his top advisers. Brazil President flees Rio, may have resigned ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (UPI) — Alaskans digging out from Good Friday's devastating earthquake and tidal waves urged the federal government today to grant massive aid or see the 49th state "revert to a wil demess." As security, the state offered its 250,000 residents its rugged frontier spirit, and Alaska's vast mineral timber and fishery re sources. Unofficial estimates set dam age between S300 million and $700 million. Gov. William A Egan ordered all agencies to rush an official accounting of the damage for submission to Congress. Only a tujy fraction of the damage was covered by earth quake or Udal wave insurance Meanwhile, Americans from other states were responding to the plight of the Alaskans with an outpouring of contributions to Civil Defense and Red Cross offices here. RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (UPD—The rebel radio at Sao Paulo reported without confirmation late today that. Pres ident Joao Goulart had signed his resignation at Brasilia. No word of the reported resignation was available from government sources. Tlie rebel announcement came only a few hours after Goulart left Rio de Janicro huriedly by air with his aides for an un known destination, but believed to be either Brasilia or Porto Alegre. First Army Commander Marshal Armando Ancora contacted rebel leaders near Minas Gerais where the revolt flared Tuesday, and asked revolt lead er Gen. Olimio Mourao to meet and discuss peace terms, the rebel radio said. Maurao was quoted as demanding unconditional surrender. Tlie rebel radio said troops of both camps were now facing each other across the Minas Gerais State border but that there had been no exchange of gunfire. In Rio, a small rebel force stormed and captured tiny Fort Copacabana at the entrance to Guanabara Bay. There was no immediate mention of casualties. In apparent retaliation, loyal marine units moved in to attack pro-rebel Gov. Carlos Lacerda in his barricaded municipal palace here. Lacerda, who minutes ear lier had annoimced his support of the revolt, called on the people by radio to "come to our aid." The rebel radio said Goulart was "in flight" to either Brasil ia or Porto Alegre. The army units in both cities are pro-gov emment. The rebel radio said rebellious 2nd Army units had "surrounded" Guanabara Province, in which Rio is situated, and made Goulart's position untenable. No Attack Started An hour later Lacerda made his emotional radio appeal to the people, the attack he reported still had not materialized. Lacerda kept up a steady stream of appeals by radio to the attack force not to be rash. But marines seized all of the city's radio stations and forced them off the ajr and seized and occupied newspaper plants. A unit of marines armed with tommyguns burst into the United Press International offices in Rio but withdrew when they saw Americans at work. The attack on Fort Copacabana was the first armed action of the two-day revolt. The rebel radio, however, did not report the armed action, saying merely the fort's garrison had "joined" the revolt. Rebels Gain Strength Goulart's position seemed to be coming more untenable by the hour. Air Force units in big Sao Paulo State threw in their lot with the rebels. Infantry units sent by Goulart to put down the revolt movement in Belo Horizonte were said to have defected and joined the enemy. Loyal troops in Rio braced for a threatened attack.from units of 2nd Army Commander Gen. Amaury Kruel. Navy Adm. Pena Bota in Lacerda's besieged palace went on the radio to call on the attacking marines to halt their onslaught. Please don't attack," he shouted into the microphone. "There is no need to let blood among brothers." Pena Bota said he would personally kill the attack leader if he broke into the palace. Appeal for Reason Lacerda joined Pena Bota in his appeal for reason. "Alarines, marines, go back," he shouted. "We arc not fighting you. We are fighting communism." With Lacerda's support, the rebel movement claimed the backing of 10 of Brazil's 22 states and the open support of two of its four armies, TTie 1st Army, based in Rio, and the 3rd Army, in Porto Alegre, supported Goulard. Lacerda's support of the revolt movement which started late Tuesday in the big Minas Gerais State, was considered a heavy blow to Goulard's chances for survival in office. Lacerda has long been a power in Brazilian politics and his opposition in 1961 led to the resignation of President Jam'o Quadros. In 1954, President Getulio Vargas committed suicide after Lacerda had accused him of master-minding an attempted assassination plot. South Viet Nam bombers in night raid SAIGON (UPI) - Sixteen South Vietnamese fighter- bombers dropped 50,000 pounds of bombs on a Ckimmunist stronghold Sunday night in the government's first night air raid of the war, it was disclosed today. Col. Nhuycn Cao Ky, commander of the air force, said he led the raid against a Vict Cong staging and training area about 350 miles north of Saigon near the Laotian border. There were no estimates of Coinmunist casualties, but Ky reported observation planes saw many pieces of clothing floating downstream in the area." "We believe it (the raid) was very successful," he said. The attack was in line with plans by American and Vietnamese officials to step up the night wTa against the Communist guerillas.' Ky said that in addition to the bombs, huge quantities of fiery napalm and searing white phosphorus was dumped on the "let Cong stronghold. Prediction of heavy rain ails LOS ANGELES (UPI)-A U.S. Weather Bureau predicUon for up to two inches of rain failed to materialize Tuesday, to the relief of flood-threatened residents in burned-out foothill areas. The forecast for today was for continued intermittent showers. Authorities in the Burbank, Glendale and Highland Park areas had been alerted to the possibility of floods and mudslides and patrol cars stood by to assist evacuation of the area if it became necessary. Ghana appeals for East-West Marshall plan GENEVA (UPD—Tlie West African Republic of Ghana to day called for a jomt East-West "Marshall plan" to mobilize help for the have-not nations of the world. The plea was presented by Ghana's Foreign Minister Kojo Botsio to the delegates of 122 nations attending the United Nations conference on trade and development. "An international plan simi lar to the Marshall Plan now is needed, organized on a truly international basis and this Ume for the benefit of the less developed countries," he told the delegates. "Today there is no room for distinction between the East and the West in the mobiliza tion of international assist ance," he said. Warning that scattered indi vidual measures have proved to be inadequate to promote the economic emancipaUon of the emerging nations he urged 'departure from old modes of thinking and form traditional atUtudes toward international trade and development . . .

Douglas MacArthur's condition has deteriorated in the past 24 hours, a spokesman at Walter Reed Army Meical Center said today. The spokesman said the 84- year-old general spent a peaceful night, but added there has been "a slight drop in the blood pressure and a moderate rise in the pulse rate." MacArthur's kidney function has diminished progressively over the past 24 hours, the spokesman said. He-said pressure on a device to prevent bleeding in his esophagus would be released this morning. "The device, called a seng- taken tube, had been inserted info the old soldier's esophagus to arrest internal bleeding. Today's report, the first indi eating that the famed military hero was failing, came after some "slight improvement was reported Tuesday in the kidney malfunction that developed after eight feet of MacArthur's lower intestine had been removed Easter Sunday. JlacArthur was recovered sufficiently Tuesday to talk with his wife, Jean, and one of his doctors. He also was visited by his son, Arthur, and his longtime aide, Mej. Gen. Courtney Whitney. Brig.

Rights debate could continue through summer WASHINGTON (UPI)-Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said today that the Sen ate's civil rights batUe could last through both national political party conventions this summer. Mansfield, in no April Fool's Day mood, told reporters that he anticipated the worst. He said action on all other legisla tion, including key money measures and administration requests, would "just pile up" if the civil rights debate continues into late summer. The Republican National Convention opens July 13 in San Francisco and the Democratic National Convention starts Aug. 24 in AUanUc City. .Mansfield's gloomy assess­ ment of a long talkative sum mer in the Senate was lightened somewhat by Democratic Whip Hubert H. Humphrey, Minn., floor manager for the civil rights bill. Humphrey said "we are hoping we won't" have to debate the bill into August. "If we buckle down, I don't think we will have to," Humphrey said "There you are," said Mans field. "I hope I'm wrong. I al-j ways anticipate the worst and hope for the best." The Democratic leaders' comments came as supporters of the legislation prepared to launch a vigorous defense of the voting rights section of the sweeping ll-point bill passed by the House Feb. 10.

Eisenhower spoke Tuesday at a Republican "party to people" forum designed to stimulate ideas for the GOP national platform to be adopted in the forthcoming presidential election. The retired five-star general and seven other Republican leaders drew frequent applause from a crowd of 1,500 at the Biltmore as they expressed ;«ibstantial agreement on these points: —It is "silly" and "naive" to trust the Russians even though they sign treaties. —The best way to deal with the Russians or any Communists is to stand up to them and call Uieir bluff. —The United States should stay strong militarily but the Goldwater rips Fulbright policy speech SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Sen. Barry Goldwater said Tuesday night the Democratic party must assume the responsibility for Sen. J.W. Fulbright's contiroversial foreign policy speech last week. "This is their baby and the Republicans should not let the citizens of this country forget it," Goldwater said in a campaign speech at a $100-a-plate dinner here. Goldwater made Fulbright's speech his prime target in the address with which he wound up two days of campaigning for California's crucial Republican presidential primary June 2. He returned to Washington early today. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called for a re-examination of long-held beliefs and "myths" about the cold war. He said the nation should dare to think the "unthinkable" and called for a new look at our policies pertaining to Panama and Cuba. Goldwater said Fulbright, D- Ark., had urged "the reality of Munich" on one hand while on the other, the White House indicated that tiie Democratic party's chief foreign policy spokesman spoke only for himself. Doesn't anyone in this ad- mmistration talk to anyone else before they try to com nut this nation?" Goldwater asked. He said Uiat Fulbright falsely assumes that both sides in the cold war have "repudiated a policy of total victory." Goldwater added, "that Neville Chamberlain once made the mistake of assuming that Adolph Hitler really did not mean what he said in 'Mein Kampf.' This administration is making the same mistake about Khrushchev today and all the Communists who have preceded him." Four rescued from cave JEROME. Mo.
