Increases of $1 to $10 were asked for installation of other business equipment, such as key telephones and switchboards. The company said monthly rates and charges for calls would not be affected and that free maintenance service would continue. Included in the proposal are two reductions in charges—that for residence extensions would be waived if the order were placed when a repair call was made, and the charge for < colored telephones would be reduced for the second and all additional color telephones. Bell cited a 32 per cent increase in installation expenses since 1957 in asking for the increases, which would boost monthly revenue by an estimated $129,000.

House Vote Thp Mouse then quickly passed thp bill on a 224-18G vote and sent it to thp Senate with a $3.5-billion wiling. This was $1 billion short of tho amount Kennedy requested. Assorting that House Republi- ms had abandoned bipartisanship, Kennedy appealed to Ixsth parties in the Senate to boost thi! authorization so that the House will have a chance to reconsider its "Irresponsible, unwarranted and unwise action" when it is offered a compromise. Dirksen said in an interview the temper of the country is such that he thinks the Senate may sustain the cut. "The overriding tiling behind the House's action is that we have been giving assistance of some kind for 19 years at an investment of more than $100 billion and the country is getting fed up on foreign aid," the Illinois senator said. "The country is vocal on this matter and when it is coupled with reckless federal spending, it is doubly vocal. Members of Congress have been hearing from theii people." Committee Cut The committee already has voted to reduce by $300 million Kennedy's $4.5-billion request Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., has demanded reconsideration of these cuts in an effort to make a 25 per cent over-all reduction. Kennedy blamed the Republicans for the House action. Noting he had supported foreign aid as a senator during the Republican administration of Dwight D. Eisenhower, he said: "This year is the first time that the leadership of one party led the attack on it." Republican House leader Charles A. Halleck of Indiana and other GOP chieftains supported the cut. On the roll call, 66 Dem ocrats and 156 Republicans wielded the ax. On the losing side were 172 Democrats and 16 Republicans. Kennedy's original foreign aid authorization request was $4.9 billion. He trimmed the figure to $4.5 billion after reductions were suggested by a presidential advisory committee headed by retired Gen. Lucius D. Clay. The House Foreign Affairs Committee pared the authorization to $4.1 billion.

The ton chairmen,of the mutch Include three religious lenders: Mathew Ahmann, executice director ot the National Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice; the Rev. Eugene Carson Blake, vice chairman of the Commission on Race and Religion of the National Council ot Churches; and Rabbi Joachim Prlnz, chairman of the American Jewish Congress. In addition, a fourth chairman, like many other Negro civil rights leaders, is a minister—the Rev. Martin Luther King. These four chairmen will meet with President Kennedy, have prominent places In the march, and address the demonstrators during afternoon ceremonies at the Lincoln Memorial.' 1n addition, many priests, ministers and rabbis, and religious groups will lake purl in the march from the Washington Monument to the .Lincoln 'Memorial. Roman Catholic prelates in the demonstration will include Archbishop Patrick O'Boylc of Washington, Archbishop Lawrence J. Shehan and Bishop ; Thomas II. Murphy of Baltimore/ Bishops John .J. Russell and Ernest L. Unlerkoefler of Richmond, Va., Bishop Michael W. Hyle of Wilmington, Del., and Bishop Philip M. Hannan of Washington. The Rev. Dr. Robert W, Spike, executive director of (he Commission of Race Relations of the Nn : tional Council of Churches, says that 30,000 to -10,000 .Protestant churchmen will be among ttie marchers. He said the march for some people would be "the, beginning of a new commitment to work for racial justice with all their strength and wisdom." CARBONDALE, 111. Hitchhiking payloads on high altitude balloon flights are giving Southern Illinois University physicists an economical way to gather information about one of the little understood entitles of the space age, the cosmic ray. By sending up special photographic emulsion plates to be exposed to heavy cosmic ray bom- jardment at heights of 100,000 :eet or more, the SIU researchers get "tracks" of the rays as they strike. The plates are then developed and studied under powerful microscopes. In a low - ceilinged, concrete- walled basement laboratory on the SIU campus, physicists measure the "tracks" and compute to such infinitesimal periods as one one - hundredth of a millionth of a second the time the rays were in contact with the plates. He Studied 10 Years Their work is part of an International Geophysical Year-related project headed by Dr. Otis B, Young, director of Atomic and Capacitator Research at Southern. Young has been engaged in the cosmic ray, project for 10 years. Although the study has been supported by almost ?90,000 in government and other outside research grants, every effort is made to keep it as economical as possible. Costs are pared by using available flights sponsored by government agencies and other universities. The SIU researchers present at balloon seldom launch- are ings. Flight packets are sent to agencies which are sponsoring flights with room for additional loa,ds. Young and his team have sent plates into the atmosphere in more than 50 balloon trips from points all over the world. The plates, imported from England, are four by six inches in size and similar in appearance to ordinary photographic film. Five or six plates are sent' on each flight, packed in lucite and styrofoam to protect them and keep them afloat if they land in water. After a flight, the packets are returned intact to SIU. Processing Critical Processing the plates after exposure is a critical phase of the research, Young said. Processing takes several days, and plates must be watched around the clock to avoid damage in case of power failure or changes in temperature or humidity. Once a plate is properly processed, microscopic study begins. mic ray as it strikes the plate, then skids along for an almost mmeasurable fraction of a second before changing into energy or other form of matter. Plates show frequent "stars," where rays have struck atoms directly and shattered. Computers at W.orlc . ; Much of the researchers' work is done on electronic machines in the SIU Data Processing and Computing Center. Computation on a single "track" may fill 75 feet of nine - inch - wide computer tape with figures. The SIU research has led to a number of significant reports in scientific journals, and in the past year Young has received more than 100 requests from all over the world for reprints. Of 206 articles on cosmic ray study listed in the current "U.S. .International Geophysical Year Bibliography" published by the National Academy of Sciences, five are by Young and associates. A member of the SIU physics department faculty since 1929, Young considers its teaching value one of the most important as- of his research. Students representative, their own time.

Gabbert Completes Course In CD Shelter Management EAST ALTON —Charles T. Gabbert, director of East Alton civil defense, has just completed a special course at the Department of Defense, Office of Civil Defense, Staff College in Battle Creek, Mich. , Gabbert, who lives at 106 Kingshighway, completed a five- day course for shelter management instructors from Aug. 1823, along with 69 other local and state civil defense officials from various parts of the country. As part of the National Civil Defense program, millions of fallout shelter spaces found in existing buildings throughout the country and which meet certain standards will be marked by the Federal Government and stocked with food, water, sanitation, medical and radiological detection supplies and equipment. Personnel must be trained to manage the people who may occupy these shelters. The sheltei management instructor course conducted at OCD staff college provides training in fallout shel ter management to those persons who will return to their communities and train others to serve as shelter managers in case o emergency. The duties and responsibilities of the manager are taught, toge ther with the special staffing skills and techniques that woulc be needed in community tallou shelters. Included in the one week course was a period of actual shelter living, which provides practical experience to the instructors. 3 Cleared In Benton Aid Case SPRINGFIELD, 111.
