Enters Hospital, JFK Flies to Side WASHINGTON (AP) - Mrs. John F. Kennedy, expecting a third child, is going to the hospital at Otis Air Force Base near Hyannis, Mass., the White House announced today. The President is flying to join her. There were no details in the announcement. Presidential Press Secretary Pierre Salinger suddenly summoned a small group of newsmen to accompany the President. He explained that the President was flying immediately to Cape Cod because his wife was going to the hospital. The third Kennedy child had not been expected until late this month. Mrs. Kennedy's second baby, John Jr., now 2Vz, arrived prematurely on Nov. 25, 1960. At that time, Kennedy was president-elect and had started back for his temporary headquarters at Palm Beach, Fla., after having Thanksgiving dinner here with Mrs. Kennedy. BULLETIN OTIS AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. (UPI)—A Secret Service agent said today Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy gave birth to a son. Zuckert Reveals Eleven Senators Sought Contacts WASHINGTON (UPI) — Air Force Secretary Eugene M. Zuckert disclosed in testimony made public today that 11 members of Congress contacted him about the TFX fighter plane program before the huge program was awarded last Nov. 24. Zuckert supplied the list of names at the request of the Senate permanent investigations subcommittee. Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., a member of the subcommittee, was one of those on the list. In providing his personal office log of visits and telephone calls made between Jan. 17 and October of last y^ar, Zuckert also listed contacts made by officials of the contractors then engaged in fierce competition for the multi-billion dollar award. These included four visits by officials of General Dynamics Corp., two by Grumman Aircraft Co. and three by Boeing Co. officers. The subcommittee, which has raised conflict of interest issues several times in its five-month- old investigation, is inquiring into why the award went to General Dynamics, instead of Boeing Co. Eventual cost of the contract for a changeable wing supersonic fighter — one of the largest awards in military procurement history—is expected to exceed $7 billion. The log showed that members of Congress from Washington state, home of losing bidder Boeing, and delegations from Kansas, where Boeing has a large Wichita plant, made several contacts. A member from Texas, location of Dynamics' Ft. Worth Plant, also showed up on the list. The names were placed in the record during questioning of Zuckert Tuesday. Lutherans Set Record in Membership HELSINKI, Finland (AP) Membership in Lutheran churches around the world has reached a record high, with gains on all continents, a new Lutheran directory says. The directory, placed on sale for the first time at the Lutheran World Federation's fourth assembly, said baptized memberships in churches now. total 56,091,134. An estimated 17 million Lutherans in German Union churches, which are outside the federation, bring the t6tal world Lutheran membership to over 73 million, the directory said. This is about 500,000 more than were counted two years ago. Largest Gain in Europe The largest gains were in Europe, where 82 per cent of the world's Lutherans live. Membership in European Lutheran churches increased 400,000 to 60.4 million in the past two years. In North America, Lutheran Church membership rose about 70,000 to 8.5 million during the same period. Gains in Africa, Asia and Latin America were smaller. The assembly, attended by more than 800 representatives from around the world, opened July 30 and ends, Sunday. The conference is the first world assembly since 1957 and is discussing the role of the Lutheran Church in today's world. Archbishop Jaan Kiivit, head of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church, told the assembly Tuesday that Soviet society has brought many problems to the Estonian church. But he added, "We know that the church cannot withdraw into some corner and try to wait until the storm is passed." The Estonian Church, with 350, 000 members, is the second largest in the Soviet Baltic republics. Alphan Accepted ALPHA — James L.

Otto Kerner has Vetoed a bill which would eliminate a requirement that pamphlets explaining proposed state constitutional amendments be mailed to voters. Kerner said Tuesday he vetoed an identical bill two years ago because "voter apathy, largely attributable to ignorance and confusion, has been the bane of intelligent popular participation hi the constitutional process." Cites Experience He noted that more than 500,000 voters failed to vote on the new Illinois Judicial Article in 1962, even though bar associations and newspapers carried on extensive information campaigns. Sponsors of the bill said their aim was to eliminate the expense of mailing the pamphlets. Kerner vetoed another bill sponsored by Sen. Paul Broyles, R-Mount Vernon, to require election officials to provide brackets for displaying the American flag at polling places. Kerner said the bill contained an error which knocked out a provision allowing an election board to select a polling place on an adjacent street when a suitable polling place is not available in the precincts.

Paul Findley, R-Ill., has announced that residents of West Central Illinois replying to a questionnaire voted 4-1 against a tax reduction if federal spending is not cut. The Pittsfield congressman announced Tuesday the results of a questionnaire which he said brought 17,310 replies from 80,000 questionnaires mailed out to names selected at random from telephone directories in his district. Findley said 3,253 replies favored an income tax cut if federal spending is not reduced but 13,134 opposed such action. There were 916 who expressed no opinion. Claims 10 Per Cent Findley said most of the replies were marked as being from husband and wife and contended that this actually represented views of about 10 per cent of the district's 282,404 adult population. On other questions, Findley said a 7-1 ratio opposed compulsory acre and bushel control of farm production and a similar ratio was in favor of this country doing whatever is necessary "even to the point of military action to assure a non-Communist government in Cuba." .
