Kernels Strongest Talent Is His Personal Appearance Man Himself Better Than V.S.May Cork French Communiques By TOM LOFTU8 Telegraph Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) — An organization friendly to Gov. Otto Kerner hired a professional opinion - sampling firm to analyze the governor's image in (ho minds of Illinois voters in 1961, and two years later, the findings of that survey still seem to bear up after two legislative sessions. First of all, the organization which sponsored that survey asked to remain anonymous, but it also made a point of telling the firm which made the survey of its friendly attitude toward the governor. The point stressed, in substance, 'Just because of this friendliness, don't hesitate to give us ALL the truth, good or bad. That survey indicated the gov ernor's strongest talent is his personal appearances in any campaign. In the same regard, it also indicated that Illinois voters generally were not so impressed with any achievement claimed by the Kerner administration, which the voters had read about from Springfield. But, if Kerner him self appeared locally to tell people personally of the same thing they WERE impressed. Local Reports Believed However, this difference wai also noted: Local newspapers covering an appearance of the governor and reporting on wha he said, carried a more convic tion than his messages from Springfield. This finding may no have surprised any editor, who knows a localized news story 5 always more interesting, but i certainly adjusted some political thinking. Two years after that survey was completed, it would seem the governor's political advisers are using that survey's results to help plan his campaign for re-election. TYie governor is doing more and more traveling to almost every part of the state. Weekly, he makes several appearances in Chicago, sometimes for only a half - day, and then is back at his desk in the capitol by mid-afternoon, He has dedicated new highways or buildings in the extreme southern part of the state, in the western, in the eastern and has even criss - crossed his route the same day in other areas of the state, to be on hand personally for some event. How Long? The survey did not include a firm estimate of how long the governor's good impression lasts after a personal appearance. But then, of course, if Kerner knew that much, re - election would be no real hard work. By his own admission, the governor must work hard to get a second term. One other factor the survey didn't cover is a summary of obstacles which the opposition will present next year in the campaign. Some of that opposition is conducting surveys of its own, which are not yet complete but which, when finished, are expected to produce effective counter measures.

By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The United States has set a joal of landing astronauts on the moon before 1970. After this momentous achievement, what will be the course of the nation's manned space program? National Aeronautics and Space Administration planners are studying the engineering, funding and other aspects of possible pro grams to follow the Apollo lunar landing project. Their main inter ests are in rhultiman space stations orbiting the earth, manned flights to Mars and a permanen moon exploration base. Eventually, all three programs may be attempted. But the costs are high and the space agency must decide which deserves pri ority. Because of the years required between the drawing board and the launching pad, decision are expected within a few months Most officials believe the space station is the most logical nex step because it would contribut greatly to Mars and lunar bas missions. Michael Yarymovych, assistan director of NASA's manned spac station office, reported station orbiting the earth for periods u to five years would help deter mine how long men and equip ment can operate in space weigh' lessness. "The main purpose of a spac station," Yarymovyoh said "would be biomedical research Before we spend any length o time flying to the planets or es tablishing moon colonies, we mui earn man's capabilities of pe orming useful missions in spac aver extended periods." A physician, Yarymovych sail should be a member of everj space station crew to monitor the lealth and psychological well-be ng of the astronauts. From their sky-high research aboratory, the station team could conduct experiments in astronomy, biology, communications, weather,, physics, chemistry and "adiation. The men could practice spacecraft maintenance, determine the best environmental con- rol systems, study the reaction of possible exotic rocket fuels in space and even launch their own •esearch satellites. Astronauts picked for planetary flights could rain aboard the station. The Defense Department is in terested in manned space stations and to avoid duplication, both mil- tary and civilian needs probably will be considered when the proj ect is firm. Reconnaissance would DC a major military goal. >*. By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Haggling over chickens and wine is only a small part of the oattle between he United Slates and the Euro- Dean Common Market. While the odor of compromise is in the air, the conflict involving money and products is far from settled yet. The United States is angry because the Common Market has raised the tariff on American chickens and all but cut off profitable market. Peace gestures by the Europeans — France, West Germany Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands Luxembourg — are termed too small to make much difference. So the United States this week is exploring countermeasures, such as raising the tariff on Eu ropean wines and photographic film, among other things.

SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)—The !W chairman of the Illinois udgetary Commission, Rep. W. Murphy, R-Antioch, said his roposed reforms would stick de- rile Sen. Everett H. Peters' op- osing statement that the old sys- ;m worked well. No vote was taken at the meet- ng Thursday of the commission, t is composed of lawmakers who creen budget request and make ecommendations to the governor n what to allow. Murphy said a otc was not contemplated. The new chairman said the op- osilion statements were made by hardshells who are against any ling new." Murphy, who succeeded Peters s chairman, developed the re- orm program after a Wednesday meeting with a group of nine pubic and private experts on state inances. In reporting to the commission Thursday, Murphy said they complained mostly about a lack of communications between the commission and the legislature. Peters, a St. Joseph Republican who held the chairmanship 16 years, at once commented that a study of the commission by an expert group developed by Gov. Otto Kcrner's administration showed "they approved of our work." Murphy answered that the group of experts he Called had no criticism of the commission un der Peters. Peters and Rep. Peter Granata, R-Chicago, criticized the in elusion ot so-called economy bloc members of the legislature in the group of experts Murphy conferred with. They noted the presence of Reps.
