The executive, Josephine Arria of American International Travel Service, said, "It's far superior to last year.

Ronald Reagan has given congressional Republicans the clear impression he is highly irked at being tagged as a possible vice presidential nominee. Some senators and House members who joined him at a private luncheon Monday at the Capitol reported he talked most about Vfhy he isn't- and not likely ever to ber- available for second place on the GOP ticket. He was said to have minced few words in discussing his displeasure at New York Gov. Nelson A, Rockefeller's frequent observations that it would be nice to have Reagan as second man on a ticket with him. The informal conclusion expressed by those Republicans was that Reagan is sighting broader horizons, than the favorite-son role he has carved out tor himself In CaiWoraia, It's doubtful that conclusion was weakened by Reagan's Monday night appearance before a Fort Lauderdale, Fia,, audience. When a man asked the governor if he would seek the presidency, Reagan replied: "No, I don't think my useful purpose would be served by saying so, But when the convention ppens In Miami Beach next Au« gust I will be nominated as a &' vortte eon and very briefly will be a candidate, ''Then W will be up to the convention which way they will go," H9 earlier toW a Washington news conference he would rather finish his job as governor thao retire to the relative seclu* slow Q{ the vjeepresidency, Put asked If be would be will* teg to give up ais Job for the Wfttte House, he grinned and re. piled! «i'm not going to put the goYtraorshlP ol California above tlie presidency of the only caravan were waiting in Northern Virginia, but most of the others who arrived over the weekend have been moved in, SCLC officials said.

He later told newsmen the money isn't all in, but he was sure the American people would come through with support. He gave no precise figures. Activity outlined for today was on a much smaller scale than the demonstrations Abernathy had said earlier would begin within a few days. Those, he said, would be nonviolent but "more militant and more massive than have ever taken place in the history of this nation." "We are gonna raise hell," he told cheering campaigners Monday morning. "We're not going to have any violence whatever because this is what the forces of evil want us to do ...

Figures It Really Pays to Advertise LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dick Annotico, who wooed his girl in newspaper ads and radio commercials, finally has his answer. It confirms the 37-year-old Investment counselor's Initial premise: It pays to advertise. Annotico and Carole Appel, 26, a divorced mother of two, got their blood tests Monday, he said, They plan to obtain a wedding license later this week and be married within two months, Miss AppeJ's acceptance followed public expressions of endearment. After going together two years and treating Miss Appel indifferently, Annotico said, he had a change of heart two months ago and proposed. Miss Appel, an Interior designer, sur» prised him by deferring a decision. So he started a campaign intended, he said, "to compensate somewhat for having treated her aloofly for two years." Said Miss Appel: "His cam- pdign showed a side of his personality that was a complete surprise. Now I love him just that much more, . .We're looking forward to a wonderful life together." in Resurrection City, U.S.A. By AUSTIN SCOTT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - By noon the sun's rays beat down so fiercely upon "Resurrection City, U.S.A.," that several migrants from the South compared it with summer In the cotton fields back home. All morning children's bare feet and the shoes of hundreds of new arrivals scuffed up little clouds of yellow dust along the dirt trails that are the city's sidewalks. Tourists strolling under shady maples and elms between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial stared curiously at the plywood huts, They housed one of the most varied communities many of the visitors would ever see. There were heavy-set, older folks from the vitamin-short, starch and fat diet of the Deep South's poor, And there were lean, cockily confident Negro teen-agers from big-city slums, most hard at work building shel» ters, Tlghtj sleeveless T-shirts worn by these youths Identified them as; "Milwaukee Youth Commandoes," ers, Memphis," The stone Rangers" and makers" of Chicago's South and West sides, and a Philadelphia group whose lettering simply located their neighborhood, "25th and Diamond."

(AP) - Randell Wayne Bennett, 2, one of four known survivors of liver transplant operations, has been discharged from the University of Colorado Medical Center. The curly haired son of Mrs. Sandra Bennett of Mesquite, Tex., is the first liver transplant patient to progress enough to be released. The youngster underwent surgery Feb. 9, after doctors found he suffered from biliary atresla, the congenital malformation of bile ducts, The ailment often results in death by about the second birthday. Randy and his mother are remaining in Denver, and he still makes regular trips to the center for checkups and treatments. Another of the patients, Terry Jean Kent, 16, went home to Hillsboro, Ore., for the weekend, and returned to the hospital Monday.

Prison Dope Plot roiled HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - A Butler County deputy foiled a plan Monday to sneak a hypodermic needle and heroin to a jail prisoner. Deputy Larry C o s t a t o r squeezed a tube of toothpaste and felt something inside. He cut it open with a razor blade and found the needle in a baby nipple and heroin in wax paper. John Warford, 25, of Hamilton, was charged with possession of narcotics and a hypodermic needle. Abandoned Boy Learning to Speak By HUGH MORGAN Associated Press Writer LAPEER, Mich. (AP) Ricky Thome, a teen-ager abandoned by his mother at a Miami, Fla., airport in 1965, may never speak but he's trying to le.arn, a state hospital spokesman says. His mother, Mrs. Victor Thome, was quoted by newsmen at the time as saying she wanted to focus attention on the boy with the hope that someone would know a way to cure his retardation. Last October, the 16-year-old »y was sent from Florida to .he Lapeer State Home and Training School. "He couldn't smile. He gulped Ills food," recalls Frederick Campbell, director of community relations for the hospital. "Now, he has a real good smile," Campbell said. "And he takes his time at eating, like the other boys do," He said as far as institution supervisors know, Ricky has never talked. He communicates by nodding or shaking his head. Doctors could find nothing organically wrong with his vocal cords, however, arid do not know positively why he has never talked. One doctor at Lapeer said it may be the result of brain damage. The boy, born a normal child, developed brain fever, probably from a virus, which caused retardation, Campbell said. After Ricky's wandering around Miami International Air. jjort led to publicity, his father, Victor Thome, resigned his job as superintendentat a plant in Warren, a Detroit suburb. The parents sold their $35,000 house and moved. Charles Wagg, chief assistant director of the Michigan Department of Health, said the parents would be billed for Ricky's confinement if they could be found, However, Ricky's two sisters, who aro niarriwj and live in Michigan, have visited him at Archeological Survey Is Racing Time By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Archeological Survey, which thrives on material thousands of years old, is now engaged in a race against time. The survey Is less than a year old, being created by the 1967 General Assembly alter 10 years of pushing by Dr. Charles R. McGimsey HI, survey director, and Miss Hester A. Davis, the state archeologist. With time already against it, the survey had to lay plans quickly because land development programs, highway building and construction of dams and reservoirs were rapidly destroying archeological sites. It was estimated that 25 per cent of the sites in Eastern Arkansas were lost in recent years because of land development. The Soil Conservation Service said that in about 25 years, most all sites in Arkansas will be gone. "So, we think we have 25 years to get the story," said Mrs. Mary Printup, editor for the Arkansas Archeological Society, which has 420 members. "It's kind of a crash program." "We don't know where all the sites are, but we have hundreds of sites recorded," she said. "As time grows shorter, the rate (of site destruction) gets faster and we had to set up something before all the information is gone," The basic purpose of the survey is to provide the general and scientific public, both present and future, with meaningful information about Arkansas' past, said Miss Davis. To accomplish this, she said, the survey's primary goal is to encourage preservation of the state's archeological resources (1) through research In the field and the recovery of artifacts and accompanying data, (2) through encouraging landowners to preserve vital information contained in Indian mounds, compgrouiKls or shelters on their land, and (3) by Informing the public about the state's long heritage through publications and lectures. The A AS is unique and is considered the "wonder of the archeological world," "Everyone (in other states) is trying and hoping to get something similar," Mrs. Printup said. After the legislature passed bills creating the survey, Mrs. Printup said Dr. James B. Griffin of lite University of Michigan wrote a letter to her husband and addressed One of the Spring glories of Hope are the azaleas which the late Mrs, Anna Judson planted in the front yard of her residence at the intersection of N. Elm St. and Ave. C, now owned by Mrs. F. R. Johnson. Mrs. Judson is gone, but not her azaleas, which each Spring commemorate a lady with a miraculous green thumb. The Judson azaleas were at their peak April 20 when this 4x5 Ektachrome was shot by Alex. H. Washburn, Star editor. The photographer was just in time, for then the rains set in and all this beauty was washed away within a week. This is The Star's 14th Process Color Show, an experimental work that was interrupted for months, first by refrigeration failure, then by film spoilage. Washburn made today's separation negatives on The Star's 8x10 Berkey color separator, with plates and presswork by Mech. Supt. Billy Dan Jones and his associate Gene Allen. U.S. Outlines Case Against Dr. Spock By WILLIAM F. NICHOLSON Associated Press Writer BOSTON (AP) - The federal government outlines its case today against Dr. Benjamin Spock and four others charged with conspiring to counsel young men to avoid the draft. Government prosecutors ii opening statements to a jury of 12 men and three male alternates, tell what they intend to prove against the five defendants. The jury was Impaneled Monday in U.S. District Court de- It "Dear, Miracle Worker." The survey was appropriated $125,000 for the first year of the biennium beginning last July I, and $215,000 for the second year, giving Arkansas the largest amount of money spent on archeological work in North America except the Smithsonian Institute. Arkansas was the first state to establish a fully coordinated statewide program of Archeo- local research and development Involving all state-supported colleges and universities. The Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas is administrative agent for the survey's money. The survey is headquartered at the university and has. access to its facilities. The law establishing the survey provides that any state college could participate by con- tracing with the survey 10 furnish it a resident archeologist, who may teach part-time so long as it doesn't interfere with his work on the survey. The participating colleges must pay about 25 per cent of (he archeologist's salary and provide office and laboratory space. During the first year, archeologists were assigned to three schools—Dr. Dan Morse at Arkansas State University, Buru- ey B. McClurkan at Arkansas AM&N and James A. Schoitz at Henderson State College, spite arguments by the defense that women were discriminated against on the panel. Leonard Boudin, Scock's law. yer, questioned Court- Clerk Hussell Pack why there were only nine women on the list of 110 jury prospects. Peck admitted the list made him look like a "misogynist, "or woman hater, but said selection was made at random. Judge Francis J.W. Ford denied a motion by the defense to discard the list and draw up another. Boudin did not indicate why he wished more women oh the jury. However, Dr. Spock, the internationally known pediatrician, helped a generation of mothers raise their children through his book "Baby and Child Care." Spock, 65, is on trial with Yale chaplain William Sloane Coffin Jr., 43; Michael Ferber, 23, a graduate student at Harvard; Mitchell Goodman, 44, of New York and Temple, Maine, an author and teacher; and "MajrcUs Raskin, 33, co-director of the institute for Political Studies' In Washington, .
