Flexibility of the proposal was emphasized by Hale w h o said appeals would be heard by a five - man committee, including one member of the zoning commission and four other members appointed by the mayor with approval of the city council.

"Those presiding elaborated in fine fashion on the virtues of zoning," Dr. Leggett said Thursday* "Without learning what the ordinance embodied, we were told that anyone who opposed the ordinance had not studied it. "One would wonder if anyone should dare oppose any portion of the proposal," Dr. Leggett continued. "In the meantime," he said, "copies of the ordinance were too scarce to be distributed as announced." He said it was impossible for him to decide if he was for or against the ordinance at this point. "I only know what those presiding at the Wednesday night meeting reported about the ordinance," he said. "I have not had an opportunity to study it. 1 ' Dr. Leggett said those presiding at the meeting did say the Cost of printing the ordinance i ordinance was "bulky and con- VC Unit Surrenders As Allies Close In SAIGON. South Viet Nam (AP) — A unit of 66 Viet Cong soldiers surrendered en masse today as American, Korean and South Vietnamese forces closed in on an encircled, fragmented Communist force on the central coast. The wholesale surrender raised to about 300 the number of prisoners taken by the combined allied force in five days of operation. It was probably the war's biggest bag of prisoners, and in addition the allied forces claimed nearly 550 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong killed in the pincer operation north of Qui Nhon, To the north just below the demilitarized zone. U.S. Marines braved a hail of Communist grenades and waded in ankle-deep mud Wednesday to capture the last hill along a four-mile ridge they had been clearing of North Vietnamese for 15 days.

Marine casualties were described as light, but three 90mm tank shells fired in support of the Leathernecks fell short,'killing three Marines and wounding seven others in the base camp for the operation. The Marine operations below the demilitarized zone for the second time in two weeks pushed American combat casualties last week above those of South Vietnamese forces although American losses were less than the week before.

He said that everyone desires to support what is best for "our city and our fellow citizens, but w e would not desire to do so at the expense of our citizens' rights." Mervin Rosenbaum, in technical service at the Baytown Humble Refinery, asked if there would be a city - wide vote on the proposal. Hale said the city council ordinarily approved ordinances without a public vote, but added there would be public hearings and specific protests would be heard at that time. "Do not be concerned with aoundaries on the proposed map," Hale added. "These areas are flexible, and there is nothing fixed in these categories at this time. Appeals can be made and will be heard ai appropriate times." Hale noted that members of the commission had worked "very diligently on the plan submitted here, and most of our action was taken with a unanimous vote."

Don't they know they can't beat the Los Angeles Dodgers? You never would have known it in Los Angeles in the first game of the 1966 World Series by watching the performance of the Baltimore Orioles. They defeated the National League champs, 5 to 2, almost as badly as Minnesota turned the trick a year ago. But in the end, the Dodgers always manage to come out on top.

Nobody gave Baltimore much of a chance in this renewal of the annual inter-league extrava- ;anza, but the experts were about as silent as the Los Angeles bats after Dave McNally, a wild one. and Moe Drabow- sky, a former National Leaguer, set back the Dodgers on three hits. Drabowsky came on in relief and saw but one Dodger reach second base. In his stint he struck out 11 and tied a 1919 World Series record set by Cincinnati's Hod Eller in the tainted Black Sox fiasco by whiffing six in a row. One Dodger run was "slugged in" by a walk with the bases filled. Jim LeFebvre's homer counted the other. Don Drysdale got the rude treatment from the Robinson boys to settle the issue in the very first inning. Frank, the Ripper, Robinson poled a home run with Russ Snyder on base. Brooks Robinson, the pride of Arkansas as well as the American League, duplicated the feat as the nexl hitter. The three runs provided by these two big bats before the game was a half-inning old produced the margin that stood up at the end. Drysdale stayed in the game just long enough to be charged with the defeat. His successor, Joe Moeller, Bob Miller and Ron Perranoski, did better in relief, but their fine work came too late. 1 ASK THE DEALER TO FINANCE YOUR N6W CAR WITH ST.

WATER IS ONE of the bifr features at Miami Beach, but most tourists would rather have the water stay in the ocean than venture into the streets, as was the case when Hurricane Inez came to call on famed Collins Storm In 13th Day- Hurricane Avenue. The erratic and unpredictable storm, born 13 days ago, Thursday was roaring across the Gulf of Mexico toward a possible collision with the Yucatan Peninsula, ancient home of the J>Iay» Indians. Inez Aims For Yucatan Peninsula MIAMI. Fla. (AP) — Glancing off Cuba, where she claimed three more.'.•.-.victims. Hurricane Inez roared"on'across;'trieGulf of Mexico today toward a possible collision with the Yucatan Peninsula, ancient home of the Maya Indians. Forecasters said Inez, in the 13th day of her tempestuous travels through the Western Hemisphere, might crawl along Ihe north coast of the peninsula, hurling 110-mile-an-hour winds inland over the dense tropic jungles. Or she might strike inland, through the ruins of a remarkable Mayan civilization built shortly after the death of Christ, to reach the important city of Merida, with its 170,000 residents. With on e last vicious blow at Cuba, Inez damaged the tobacco crop, source of Havana cigars. In her earlier sweep across th eastern part of the Communist island, she had laid waste to sugar fields. On the northwest coast, as the storm passed Wednesday night, Havana Radio said two persons were electrocuted and another drowned, bringing thg storm's announced death toll in Cuba to four. Hundreds were injured during her previous visit. Inez is known to have killed more than 150 person in the Caribbean and possibly many more in Haiti. A ricochet blow at the Yucatan Peninsula might send Inez reeling on across the Gulf of Mexico toward the main body of Mexico. The peninsula, which juts up into the Gulf of Mexico to split it off from the Caribbean, is owned partly by Mexico. The southeast corner is occupied by British Honduras and a part o Guatemala. Early today t .Inez was abou 275 miles west-southwest of _Ke> West, Fla., and 150 miles north east of Yuatan. Two persons were injurec when a building collapsed in downtown Havana during a tor rential rain Wednesday night. A (See INEZ, Page 16) President Planning Major Asian Tour WASHINGTON (AP) — Piesi- dent Johnson is expanding his trip to the Manila conference into a major Asian tour with visits to New Zealand, Austrlia, Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea, as well as the Philippines. Johnson's plans were disclosed today by governments of several of the Asian nations. There was no immediate word from the White House, but the President scheduled an afternoon news conference that was expected to bring his confirmation of the announcements from abroad. The news conference was set for 3 p.m. EDT. The official visits to the five nations will be sandwiched Memo: From News Desk By Preston Penderqrass I can't figure why car manufacturers don't simplify the instructions on how to operate the heater. When I bought a new car recently I didn't ask whether it had a heater. It was too hot to talk about, or even think about heaters. I did ask if the car had an air conditioner. My car apparently has a dual heat-air conditioning system. If it has, the heating gadget isn't nearly as easy to operate as the air conditioner. I got chilly the other night after the first norther blew in and began looking for the heater. There is only one lever that has th e word "heater" on it. Nothing happened when I moved it to the "on" position, which meant some other steps had to be taken to activate the system. Then I happened to think the .motor wasn't running. I cranked up and turned the heater "on" again. Still no heat. Feeling a bit frustrated, I pushed the lever to the right. A blower came on full steam. There, I thought. That's it. Now I'll get some heat! It was the air conditioner blower that I thought I had cut off a while ago. I kept moving the lever back and forth and the blower kept coming on and going off, and the cold air kept coming out. I had often said that I had better things to do than read car manuals. I always figured I was smart enough to operate a car (and all of the modern gadgets) without havi ng to read instructions. I was disgusted with the manufacturer because he didn't simply put a heater switch on the cftr an d label it "heater, low, high, medium." That would suit everybody, you know, no matter his weather preference. So I reached in the glove compartment and fumbled around for the manual given me Postal Unit To Honor Late Albert Thomas Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Albert Thomas Post Office Station in Nassau Bay will be held at 10 a.m. Friday.

(Tony) Kemplay of Kemp and Tony's where I bought the car. I wouldn't want old Kemp to know I had to consult that manual because I told him when he handed it to me that I had better things to do than read it. He gave me one of those snide smiles that I didn't notic e at the time but remembered when I got out the manual. As it turned out, the manual was more confusing than the heating system. I turned on the map light and tried to find the "A" and "B" and "C" knobs. I was supposed to 'depress" one and "raise" another. Leave the middle one in "neutral" position, it said. At last, I thought, I'm getting somewhere. I fixed all the gadgets just like the manual said — and you know what happened? You guessed right. The air conditioner and heater began operating simultaneously. I am a defeatist by nature when it comes to manipulating modern gadgets, so I surrendered. Since I never could enjoy hot and cold weather together without some music, I turned the radio on. Thank goodness, the radio has only one switch that says "on" and "off." If you'll pardon the double negative, I'd like to say you can't hardly get them no " around the Oct. 24 - 26 Manila meeting of chief of stat e of the seven countries - with troops fighting Communists in South Viet Nam.

Stationary Span To US Steel Site 'Out* By BILL HAKTMAJf GALVESTON {Sp }— Missouri Pacific Railroad has alter>d its bridge proposal to cross Cedar Bayou.

The bridge, which will be approximately 100 feet long will lave approximately 50 feet cf 'ertical clearance, Austin said. He said Mopac has been authorized to abandon a segment of its line in Arkansas which las made a lift span bridge available, which will fit the needs of the Cedar Bayou crossing- "This bridge, Austin said 'can be substituted for a fixed span with relatively little increase in expenditures due to other savings which can be realized because of a lower grade ine requiring less grading on the approaches " LATE NEWS: AUSTIN, Tex.

Austin said otie or the determining factors in changing the bridge type was the possible future use of Cedar Bayou as a navigable commercial stream, as well as a harbor for small craft during: hurricanes. Several protests, one from the City of Baytown which was later withdrawn, were filed with the Corps of Engineers- One of the protests, which was filed after the deadline, but before any ruling was made, was by the Chambers County Commissioners Court. The Chambers protest was not on: the bridge itself, but on the height. Judge Oscar Nelson at that time told The Sun he did not feel the, commissioners would continue the protest if a swing - type or lift - span bridge would be used. "We are, however, opposed to the fixed span" Nelson said. The new Mopac proposal *yill now be sent to the Secretary of the Army in Washington for dispensation.

"1 am reasonably sure," Turk said, "without checking with our marine division that this would serve our purpose.
