A total of 98 were sold yesterday and 126 on Wednesday. Before being eligble for cily licenses, dogs must have been immunized to rabies. Elliott said he learned veterinarians have experienced a late rush of calls for the immunizing shots. Some dogs owners told the treasurer they had been unable as yet to get shots for their dogs, lacking time to wait out their turns at veterinarians' offices. Adding to an almost steady stream of callers at the city treasurer's office today were residents paying sewer bills. At noon today, Elliott said sewer use reciepts for the day would exceed §2,000, and that the total for June will be trom $27,500 to $28,000.

A deadline* for receiving a federal grant of §230,000 for the interceptor by perfecting award of a contract expires Sunday unless a time extension is granted. City Council, at its meeting Wednesday night, deferred for two weeks disposition of bids on the interceptor pending the possibility of negotiating a lower figure from the lowest bidder. The bids rangecl from ,57 to 63 per cent over the engineers' estimate of cost. Didn't Reject Bids The council laid over to its July 12 meeting a report of the citizens Engineering Advisor} Committee recommending rejection of the bids and readver Using the project. It also laid over a resolution of its sewers committee to the same effect. Left for exploration through the city's legal and public works department prior to the next council meeting is a question whether the federal agency would permit any contrac negotiations that would vary the low bid by more than five per cent. Lenz, in recommending agains negotiations, cited that federa regulations provide the tola negotiated cannot be more than five per cent of a contractor's base bid. Allow More Time In order to allow the city more time, and to get a definite ruling as to whether the city might undertake negotiations to more than five per cent, Lenz said today, he sent a letter Thursday afternoon to R. J. Schneider HEW Chicago office chief of construction work under federal grants. Besides asking the 30-day ex- tention, Lenz said, he asked Schneider for a definite ruling whether the city can negotiate on more than a 5 per cent reduction in the contractor's base bid. No Affect On Grant Earlier, Lenz said, he had taken up the matter of negotiating with the chief assistant of C. W. Klassen, chief engineer of the State Sanitary ' Water Board, who said he felt a 2- week delay in action would not affect the matter of the federal grant, but he also pointed out that federal regulations have a five per cent limitation as to negotiations. R%R Construction Co. of Alton made the low bid on the interceptor at $1,498,763 and through its representatives informed the council that cuts totaling about $250,000 might be affected through negotiations in clarification of specifications for the project. The Engineers' estimate of cost was $957,066.

GOP Group Assails Democrats By JERKY RANKIN SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Democratic party leaders are linked in a "cynical alliance" with "corrupt big city machines," Sen. Barry oldwater has told warring Young Republicans at their national convention. The Arizona conservative's speech to a cheering crowd of 3,002 Thursday night came after day of bitter wrangling. More was in store today, the last day, when national officers and resolutions were to be decided. Goldwater, obviously the favor- te of the majority at the conven- ion for the 1964 GOP presidential nomination, got a rousing ovation —complete with trim young girls clad in Goldwater sweat shirts. Goldwater again insisted that he sn't running for anything except the U.S. Senate. Most of his talk was devoted to castigating mod- rn liberals, whom he called "soft- shelled creatures." These, he said, "are the reactionaries. They haven't had a new idea in 30 years." Republicans, he said to applause, must bring the liberals 'kicking and screaming into the Praising the liberals of 50 years ago, Goldwater contended "The aoliticians who have inherited the radilions of liberalism . . . are not liberals a f all, but merely am- sitious men who have become the captives of the big city machines." He cited Cliicago, Philadelphia and New York. He said the narrowness of "the modern liberal view has been that all problems are essentially *» IW TMt Hi LETTERING economic in character. This is the Marxist view and it has had a deep effect on the modern liberals n this country." President Kennedy's European :rip also came under fire. Referring to the Ireland stop, Goldwa- ,er said, "I don't know what troubles they have ... but we have hell of a lot hero and he ought :o bo here taking care of them." Goldwalur called Cuba "... in all probability a greater and more dangerous defeat than any we have suffered in any war. How many more defeats can we take? How much longer dare we keep Lord Astor Named In Call Girl Case Showers Fall in Illinois By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Thundershowers moved into the Illinois weather picture but with and humidity today. Sharp storms buffeted heat the state's northeast corner west and north of Chicago Thursday night, dropping temperatures 13 degrees in 20 minutes. Clouds slowed the warming in the Chicago area today but temperatures again mounted into the 90s in other sections. Forecasters said they would rise again Saturday and Sunday. Four nortlieasternmost counties got the first appreciable moisture in two weeks from Thursday night's two squalls, one in the evening, one about midnight. Waukegan reported damage from wind clocked at 55 miles an hour. Winds took a toll of windows, signs and trees in McHenry. The downpour at Highland Park, accompanied by hail, temporarily flooded two railroad underpasses. The Coast Guard rescued four persons from a sailboat capsized on Lake Michigan by the storm. Several other craft were towed to safety. A torrent of rain and hail delayed O'Hare Airport traffic for five minutes. O'Hare measured .65 of an inch of precipitation. DCS Plaines and Elgin reported .40, Glenview .54. But Midway Airport recorded only .03. The storms came after some 96- degree neat that buckled some Chicago pavements. Man, Wife Injured In Cycle Mishap Minor injuries were incurred by u man and his wife when the motorcycle on which thoy were riding skidded on an oil slick, throwing LONDON (AP)—Christine Keeler testified today she had sexual intercourse with former War Minister John Profumo and Soviet naval attache Yevgeny Ivanov. She said money and gifts she got from Profumo were for her mother. She also told a magistrate's hearing of vice charges against 50-year-old osteopath Dr. Stephen Ward — who introduced her to both men—that wealthy Lord Astor once paid the rent on an apartment she shared with party girl Mandy Rice-Davies. Miss Keeler, 21-year-old redhead, was the first prosecution witness at the hearing, which sprang from revelations of her simultaneous affairs with Pro- fumo and Ivanov. The resulting sex and security scandal almost topped Prime Minister Macmillian's conservative government. Christine said she had given money to Ward. Miss Rice-Davies said the same thing when she took the stand. Miss Rice-Davies was the second witness and said that while living at the flat "I had intercourse with. Lord Astor." When Prosecutor Mervyn Griffith-Jones asked her about Ward's friends, the 18-year-old blonde replied the only other man she heard Ward mention was American movie actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr. She did not explain further the reference to Fairbanks. Mandy also said she slept with Ward at Astor's country estate after Christine introduced them. Miss Rice-Davies said that whenever she received money from men she either loaned or gave some to Ward. Prosecutor Mervyn Griffith- Jones said he did not want names included on the court record. The clerk of the court then dictated the essence of Miss Rice- Davies' evidence without reference to Lord Astor. The deposition then read that the girl had had intercourse with other men and that Ward was at the apartment when she met men there. a weak and indecisive national botli of them off. leadership?" | .James T.
