Kennedy Joins O'Connor Today in Effort to Woo Upstate N.Y. Voters WASHINGTON (AP) - The Tost Office Department's new assistant Postmaster general Is plotting a revolution a "planned, management-controlled revolution" mat would create a mechanized post office. Dr. Leo S. Tacker, a former business executive who admits to having seen the inside of only three post offices, was confirmed by the Senate two weeks ago as head of the departments' new Bureau of Research ami Engineering. In the next two years Packer says ho wants to double the number of post office engineers engaged exclusively in research and development and begin "a planned management controlled revolution" The revolution would create a mechanized post office but not simply a few more conveyor belts or a couple of extra computers. "There are means of communications which are different from the letter with the stamp on it that are the legitimate concern at the Post Office Department it Is the concern of the department to be aware of them, he said. Packer, 46, former engineering manager of Xerox Corp., says the department no longer will depend on "technological droppings from industry" for its new ideas. But he realizes there are vast differences between the methods of provate Industry and those of the government. "What we're building here I visu alize is a long, uphill climb," he said In an Interview. "The restraints on management in government are stronger than what I had expect ed." Currently, the Post Office spends $20 million a year on research and development out of a budget of near ly $6 billion. If the Post Office were private Industry, Packer says, lt would be told "you're running a hell of a business, since such a small fraction of your budget Is for research." Packer believes his primary problem will bo to find new methods to cope with the continued growth in mail volume especially the millions of magazines and other pub lications of a literate society. It is, he says, "a complex prob lem beyond the reach of the tradl lional approach of manual labor. We ntjcd to plan and carry out a program of mechanization. "At the same time much of the equipment is sophisticated and we need a new breed of postal employe that can live with it; and we don't have them today." Packer says he hopes, within the next decade, to see a "transfer from Sunday School Rally Slated Mrs. Pauline Van Dusen, superintendent of the Chemung Methodist Sunday school, has announced that a program of special music has been arranged for the Sunday School Rally tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock at the church.

He is Lt. (j.g.) James Welsh, 29, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Welsh. Mr. Welsh was physical education director, basketball and track coach at Sayre High School at the time James was born. According to an Associated Press report from Hong Kong, Lt. Welsh was taking part in a rescue operation from the U.S. 7th Fleet Carrier Oriskany serving on patrol duty off Viet Nam. Welsh, his co-pilot and crewman already had rescued 12 men in two airlifts from the freighter August Moon when a 65-foot wave churned up by the typhoon that sent the freighter into a reef knocked another rescue helicopter into the sea. Welsh's craft picked up Ens. Dan Kern of Chula Vista, Calif., then headed back to the Oriskany to refuel. A third helicopter rescued Cmdr. Dale Barck and Petty Officer William Thoday, Imperial Beach Calif, from beside the downed craft. The three men were in the water for about five minutes.

The local committee is affiliated with 74 other statewide community "Hire the Handicapped" communities and the state and national committees. In the beginning many em ployers questioned the advisability of employing handicapped persons fearing Injury to the handicapped and the possible involvement of other employes. Mr. Tyson noted. Working together these committee members sponsored programs of contests, meetings, conferences and other a cavities to enlighten the em ployers and the public on the good work handicapped persons could ac complish, he said. Chairman Tyson, in discussing the various programs, pointed out that some employers may be overlooking a valuable source of labor today when tliey fail to consider applicants with minor or major handicaps. Today with the labor market approaching a condition similar to the inadequate or short supply of labor during the Korean war, this supply could possibly provide employers with the labor they need, he assorted. Very few Individual jobs require the use of a man's or woman's total capacities, he pointed out. Handicapped persons who have been rehabilitated can perform well any kind of job which calls for their remain ing abilities and for which they have been prepared properly. Chairman Tyson, In discussing the success of handicapped workers In Industry, pointed out that individuals who have been trained or retrained at the Johnstown Center of the Penn sylvania Bureau of Rehabilitation for Richard Walters Begins Studies At Altoona Richard K.

General United Fund Chairman Nicholas Chacona, indicates that the Fund slogan is "Give the United Way" and with the full cooperation of everyone, the goal of $30,000 will be surpassed. The following agencies will benefit from tliis United Fund effort: American Red Cross, Association of Mentally Retarded Children, General Suliivan Council Boy Scouts of America, Pcnn-York Council of Girl Scouts, Salvation Army and the U. S. O. with Kennedy Qt the Oneida County Airport. The Albany engagement was a conference of the State Council of Machinists, an AFL-CIO labor organi-zation. In a speech prepared for the meeting, O'Connor criticized Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller for last year's veto of two Democratic bills that would have raised the minimum wage in New York State from $1.25 to $1.50 an hour. After some sparring with the Leg islature this year, Rockefeller signed legislation that will raise the mini mum to $1.50 on Jan. 1, 1967. An estimated 600,000 workers will bene fit. O'Connor said deluy in raising the minimum had "prolonged and deep ened the misery" of low-paid workers. "Next year," he continued, "we will explore energetically ways to raise the minimum above $1.50 and spread its coverage in the state to those who cannot live on what they can earn with their labor." State law exempts a wide variety of workers from the minimum wage requirement. The minimum need not be paid to domestic or farm workers, apprentices, students holding part-time jobs, persons who depend largely on tips or employes of religious, charitable or educational institutions. O'Connor did not specify to what level he would seek to raise the minimum of what categories of workers he would bring into cover age. In a more-generalized attack on Rockefeller's labor record, O'Connor said that the Republican governor had been "no friend to the working man or his family" and th'dt he had "coddled business while showing a callous indifference to the people." Almost from the moment that Rockefeller took office in 1958, O'Connor said, the governor and other Republicans "have been shifting the tax burden from those who can afford to pay to those who can least afford to pay." O'Connor's attack was an attempt to counter the effect of recent labor-union endorsements of Rockefeller. Some have cited Rockefeller's ap proval of the $1.50 wage bill among reasons for backing him. After the Albany appearance, O'Connor's schedule took him to Yonkers to help open a campaign headquarters for U.S. Rep. Richard L. Ottinger, a freshman Democrat seeking reelection. Kennedy was headed for Syracuse to lend similar support to another first-term congressman, James M. Hanley, before joining O'Connor. Kennedy was called into the gubernatorial campaign after a two-day Upstate tour by O'Connor earlier this week stirred little voter interest. Campaign crowds ranged from small to virtually nonexistent. Although Kennedy had not planned to enter the O'Connor campaign until late October because of commitments in other states he agreed to take a hand early. Marriage License A marriage license application has-been taken out at the office of the register and recorder in Bradford County by Walter W. Parkhurst of Lacevville RD 1 and Marzetta J. Walker of Wyalusing RD 1. Balanced New York State Transport System Is Urged by Rockefeller ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Frank D. O'Connor enlisted the electoral glamor of U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy today on an Upstate campaign swing opening with an O'Connor pledge to raise the state's minimum wage beyond $1.50 an hour. Kennedy, who usually draws large and lively crowds, agreed to accompany O'Connor on visits to Rome, Glens Falls and Troy in an effort to perk up the Democratic nominee's campaign for governor. Traveling by charted plane, O'Connor scheduled speeches in Albany and Yonkers before rendezvousing AFL-CIO United Stcclworkers of America. The union district includes locals in New York City, Buffalo, Lackawanna, Syracuse, Albany, Schenectady and Dunkirk. A Rockefeller spokesman said the endorsement was the 11th by labor organizations, with a total membership of more than 550,000. New Albany Man Puts Arm Through Stormdoor A New Albany man received a severe laceration of his ritjht forearm yesterday when he accidently put it through a storm door at his home. William Spencer, 40, of New Albany RD 1, was admitted to the Robert Packer Hospital where he is listed in good condition today. The accident occurred when his daughter was walking out of the house and the wind caught the storm door. Seeing that the door was about to strike the girl, he attempted to grab the door, putting his arm through the glass. Two other area residents were also injured in mishaps. They were treated at the hospital dispeasary and were released. Larry Hunsinger, 14, son of Clarence Iluasinger of 779 South Main St., Athens, was practicing football at Athens High School when he fell, hurting his left wrist.

Large Earth Mover Tears Up 40 Feet Of Waverly Street A large earth mover, moving from a construction site in Dansville, N.-Y. to . the highway construction at Vestal, moved earth it hadn't planned on Friday afternoon. As the huge machine, one of several traveling east on Chemung St. in Waverly, neared the Penasylva-nia Ave. intersection, it is reported the machine had to pull over when a car did not get out of the way. A 40-foot swath of pavement, curbing and storm sewer was torn open by the weight of the vehicle. Street Department employes worked into the small hours of this morning repairing the damage. BOHEMIA, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller today urged support of his plans for "a thoroughly balanced New York State traaspor-tation system." He discussed the project in a talk prepared for dedication ceremonies at the Douglas MacArthur Building Terminal at MacArthur Airport here on Long Island. The Republican governor, campaigning for a third term, noted his announcement of last week that he would ask the next season of the legislature to create a state department of transportation. The demrtment would give central direction to state agencies in different fields of transportation air, road, rail and water. Rockefeller said: "We in New York State are leading the nation in education, in the fight for pure waters, in medical assistance to the aged, in encouragement and development of the arts, in the erf a'ion and expansion of recreational facilities and, last by no means least, in the vigor and driv-of our economy. "Let us now establish the instruments and policies for a traaspor-tation system that shall not only be still another model for the nation to follow b"t a spur to a whole new era of progress in New York State." Opening of Republican campaign headquarters in West Bpbylon was one of the events on a Rockefeller campai?m tour on Long Island by helicopter today. In remarks prepared for that stoo. Rockefeller said: 'My administration's job development authority has done more to help bn'n" rr pyr-Hed indi'S- trie to Suffolk County than to any other county in the state." The governor said 36 loans for a total cf more th?n $J million in Suffo'k C'ity hv h"n p'vvovH thus far under the Job Dvelonment Mhority crested in W. to arrange for loans to attract industry to the state and mke more jobs. In New York City Friday night, Rockefeller said the state's medical assistance program' has 'lifted the spectre of financial disaster from the mi.:fortune of sickness." In a c-h at tV N"" Era C"b of the Educational Alliance, the "ovcrr.or also said his signature on the medical assistance bill on April 30 "represented nothing less than a medical - economic pmancioation for the people of New York State."
