Tribune Photo. Claims Committee Abolished By Board The La Crosse County Board would continue to be published has abolished its claims com - in the newspaper each month, mittee. Supervisor Gerald Besl (1st The measure had been sug - 'Dist.) said supervisors still gested by the claims committee itself, which is also the board's insurance committee. Committee chairman Carl Bruhnke (17th Dist.), who intro duced the measure last month, said the committee would continue its insurance functions. He told the Board that the way the county procedure for paying bills works, the claims committee serves no function except to approve bills it knows nothing about. The bills, before they are sent to the full Board, are, in most cases, already approved by the committee overseeing the department which received the goods or services involved. Exceptions, the Board was told, include such things as juror or attorney fees which a judge has already ordered paid Bruhnke's resolution had been referred to the Board's admin istration committee, which con ducted a survey of what coun ties similar to La Crosse do about paying bills. Committee chairman Gordon Feinberg (2nd Dist.) reported that a majority of the dozen counties which answered the questionnaire apparently do not use a claims committee or send only large bills to a claims or a similar committee. In answer to questions, Feinberg said if the resolution were approved, the list of claims would continue to be provided to each supervisor Board meeting and Apollo 10 Broadcasts To Show Improvement By F. T. MacFEELY CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) When the Apollo 10 astronauts turn on their newest television camera and transmit to earth next week, you probably will notice one improvement more significant than the fact that the picture is in color for the first time from space. More notable will be their natural human movements. With the new camera, developed by Westinghouse for military projects and adapted to Apollo 10 in less than three months, those jerky motions from previous flights are replaced by normal action. The new camera transmits at the 525 scan lines that appear on home television screens, while the flickering action on the cam - era usea previously resunea from its transmission at only 200 scan lines. As for color, inside pictures may be a disappointment. Vir tually everything in the space craft is a bland gray. Stanley Lebar, Westinghouse 0 - A It program manager tor Apouo cameras, saia m cnecKing ior colored objects to photograph in the spacecraft, a crew came up with a short list: the Apollo 10 cloth patches and American flags on the astronauts' uni forms, the red cross on the first aid kit and the flesh tones of the astronauts' faces. "But the view everyone is looking forward to is the earth in color," Lebar said. a & & There will be a delay of 10 seconds from the time the picture is received in the space center at Houston, until it is seen. In this Jime, the red, green and blue sequence signals from the color wheel camera will be synchronized through two video tape recorders.

After the measure had unani mously passed, Supervisor Jer ome Klos (28th Dist.) stated that the Board had just madej a big change in its procedures.! Harman's remarks will be par - ! ticularly significant, he said, in the case of a committee that says "yes" to everything. When Feinberg objected that Klos was misinterpreting the effect of the resolution and that no bills would be paid until they had been reviewed by the full Board, Klos replied that he had been going on the state - ! epidemic in 1970, Dr. E. J. Jor - ments made, including that of ris, state health officer, said administration committee member Besl.

The color camera the astronauts will use in the command module weighs 13 pounds. They also will have a three - pound monitor which they can attach to the camera or to the metal spacecraft or hold in one hand. Another new camera feature is a zoom lens that can, with a ! twist of the astronaut s wrist, increase the size of an object nine times. Ten color transmissions from space are scheduled. Monroe Board Member Resigns SPARTA, Wis. Lawrence Curry of Warrens has resigned as a member of the M o n r o e County Board of Supervisors due to failing health. Curry, former mayor of To man, has been representing the Towns of Lincoln, Scott and Grant on the board for several years.

MEETING SITE CHANGED The Memorial Day Association's graves decoration committee will meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Room 202 of the courthouse instead of at the American Legion Club, as originally scheduled, County Veterans Service Officer Robert Mol - stad said Friday. i Hospital Pub ication 15 Years Old La Crosse Lutheran Hospital observed the 15th anniversary of its publication, The Almanac during Hospital Week which ends Saturday.

State Is Facing More Measles During 1970 MADISON (AP) Wisconsin can expect a German measles Friday. In Wisconsin, as in the nation, the incidence of German meas - les takes a sharp and quick upturn about once in every six years. The six - year cycle is nearing completion to make next year the period of high incidence. The last years of heavy incidence were 1958 and 1964. In 1958 Wisconsin had 45,000 cases and in 1964 the totaled climbed to 97,000. - The disease causes birth defects. Children, most likely to come into contact with it, pass it along to pregnant mothers. Jorris said limited quantities nhle later this vcar Familv physicians will have suppliesjs Saturday Niqht tor lnaiviuuai use ana me siaie immunization clinics. i & Plans for immunizing women of child bearing age have been ruled out because there have been side effects with the vaccines in adults but not in chil drenand there is a risk in the vaccine when given to women who may unknowlingly be in the early stages of pregnancy, he said. The National Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta, Ga., announced plans Thursday for vaccination of 8 - 10 million youngsters in the first phase of a program that eventually will result in 40 - 50 million youngsters being immunized.

Bracegirdle said Friday. Some $141,800 in federal aid $71,900 a year has been earmarked for La Crosse projects for the next two years, he said. The city would be required to match the funds. The highways division's district engineer, Harold Fiedler, is preparing the necessary contracts. They are to be submitted to the Common Council. Bracegirdle said that the federally supported TOPICS traffic operations program to increase capacity and safety - would provide funds for improvements such as widening streets, providing left turn lanes, upgrading signals and financing new ones and provid ing separate lanes. Streets not eligible for present aids such as Main, Market and Caledonia Streets would become eligible under TOPICS, said Bracegirdle. He added that most streets in downtown La Crosse and other business areas also would be eligible. The federal funds can be used for planning, but La Crosse's planning already will have been done under the area transpor tation study plan, he said. 1967 Battery Charge Dropped By Court A 1967 battery case against a La Crosse youth has been dropped because the youth has been committed to M e n d o t a State Hospital. The youth, Donald L. Burdick, 20, had been accused in County Court in August 1967 of harming a city girl. He had been committed to Central State Hospital at Wau - pun to determine if be could stand trial and had been held there until early this month, when the hospital finally reported that he was now capable of standing trial. His court - appointed lawyer, Francis Papenfus, had the case continued while efforts were made to obtain a civil com mitment to the mental hospital. Following the commitment, Dist. Atty. Burleigh Randolph asked Judge Leonard F. Roraff to drop the battery charge.

LANG a vocal role in the congressional WASHINGTON (AP) He; furor over the final controversy munched a cold hamburger and that led to Fortas' quitting he jingled his keys and, reflect - revelation that, while on the in? on his beeinninff of Abe For - court, Fortas kept for nearly a tas' downfall, he decided maybe a hard shake is good for democ racy now and again. It was Robert P. Griffin, a; first term member of the U.S. Senate who first took up the Robert P. Griffin fight against confirmation of Fortas as chief justice of the Supreme Court. Now that Fortas has resigned from the bench, Griffin can manage a sympathetic word for the former justice and voice hope for the future of the court. "He did restore some of our confidence in the Supreme Court by resigning," says Griffin, "though it was all he could do under the circumstances. It's a good precedent." a While Griffin doesn't claim a single - handed victory blocking Fortas' ascension to chief justice last year, it was the young Michigan senator who provided much of the ammunition in the battle. He disclosed the fact that Fortas was paid $15,000 for lecturing at a summer law school seminar out of $30,000 in donations solicited by a former law partner, Paul A. Porter, from five men with far - flung business and financial interests. The Republican senator's interest in Fortas the man has diminished now that he is no longer a justice. He avoids talk of whether the Fortas case should be pursued further. "It's up to the Justice Department now," Griffin says. "He's a private citizen now. I'm not aware of what is in the Justice Department files." ir if & Actually, Griffin did not take RED PROBE SECOND IN MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union announced today that the second of its twin unmanned spaceships reached Venus 24 hours after the first and radioed back valuable scientific infor mation from the planet's atmosphere. The official Soviet news agen cy, Tass, said that Venus 6 came in 186 miles from the point where Venus 5 entered the hot and cloudy atmosphere of the planet Friday. Tass said the second spaceship's instrument package made a parachute descent of 51 minutes, gathering data that was transmitted to earth. The Venus 5 descent had been described almost identically. It was the first time that both spaceships in a twin Venus shot had made it to the planet. The Soviet Union attempted the feat once before, in 1965, but then Venus 2 missed by 14,880 miles while Venus 3 crashed after losing radio contact. Tass hailed the twin flight as an "outstanding new success." But available information in dicated that the two craft failed to continue radio communica Saturday, May 17, 19693 year a $20,000 fee from the fam ily foundation of Louis E. Wolf - son, a man now serving a prison term for stock manipulation. "My concern now is in the Su preme Court and how it weathers the storm," he says. & & rfir "There are those who believe the court has been seriously damaged, but this is not necessarily true. I believe that from this episode a great deal of encouragement can be taken that our system does work, the checks and balances. This illustrates that it works. "You don't have to burn down buildings to make changes. Do it within the system." Democracy, muses Griffin, may sometimes need to falter in order to survive. "I don't advocate that, but it's probably true. "So many areas of society have organizations which have been in existence a long time and which have people in authority who do their jobs in a perfunctory manner, lacking a sense of mission. It takes," he concludes, "something like this to show them what kind of responsibilities they have." . What about the successor to Fortas? Might there be a strong reaction in the Senate when the body is called to advise and con sent? 6 - it First Griffin hedges the ques tions: "I think the Senate wui take its responsibilities seriously." Then he adds, "You know, we even require Cabinet members to divest themselves of funds, and the requirements on the Supreme Court have just got to te more important than for a cabinet member who serves a short time or even for a congressmen who must face reelection. The court is for life." Griffin says he doesn't mean to "take on the Supreme Court in a general way. "I haven't and I won't do that I agree with most decisions of the Supreme Court. ON VENUS, 24 HOURS tion from the planet's crust The Soviet Union had unsuccessfully tried this feat before with Venus 4 which made a soft landing on Oct. 18, 1967, and gave the first on - the - spot report about Venus' atmosphere. As far as could be determined from sparse and sometimes obscure official announcements, the two new spaceships only supplemented the work of Venus 4 and represented no major space breakthrough. Tass did not say that radio transmitting capsules ejected by parachute from both craft made soft landings on the plan et's hot surface, which had been an objective of the flight. Tass reported that Venus 6 entered the planet's atmosphere 186 miles from the Venus 5 point of penetration. "The spaceship's instrument capsule smoothly descended through the atmosphere for 51 minutes, carrying out various measurements and transmitting this dat. to earth," the Soviet announcement said.
