Water Line Break Hits Godfrey Area Water sen-ice was cut off to about 150 Godfrey and Brighton families for an hour this morning when a pipe broke. The break occurred near the Godfrey firehouse, on Godfrey Road, while an excavating company was digging a ditch for a sewer. Families on Pearl Street in Godfrey, and those living on Godfrey Doad near the grade school, as well as some users in Brigh ton, were affected by the break. The cut in service caused little inconvenience as far as could be in a check by the determined Telegraph.

Fined $68 on Four Charges After Crash Charles C. Hood, 43, of Rte. 1, Shipman was fined a total of S68 by Police Magistrate George Roberts after pleading guilty to four charges this morning. Arrested at 4:40 p.m. Monday, following an auto accident on Milton Road. Hood was charged with: a traffic violation, intoxication, defective equipment (brakes), and violation of the operator's code. He was fined $10 and costs on the first two charges, five and costs for defective equipment and §15 and costs for the operator's code violation. A police report indicates that Hood and Raymond A. Chapman, of Bunker Hill in separate cars were headed north on Milton Road, with Chapman in the lead. When Chapman stopped for some traffic, Hood was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with the rear of Chapman's vehicle. Hood's car was removed from the scene by Cuff's Towing Service. Sen.

Nixon's news conference followed an address to an insurance agents convention.

"I am for Barry Goldwater for president," Cotton told the first formal news conference he has held in his 17 years in Congress. Cotton said he expects to be a candidate for delegate to the Republican National Convention and fight for the nomination of the Arizona senator.

Pa. (AP) — President Kennedy flies here today for thr first of 12 speeches on a cross-count ]-y tour which he labeled "a journey to save America's natural heritage." The 10,000-mile presidential trip through 12 states was billed as "non-political" by the White House, though Kennedy certainly hopes to confront many thousands of voters along the way. A bipartisan aura was given to| the stop at Milford, on the Delaware River in northeastern Pennsylvania. Kennedy put Milford on his itinerary in order to visit the ancestral home of the late Gifford Pinchot, a Republican who twice was governor of the state but who won greater fame as "the father of conservation." With Kennedy Republican Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania was invited to join Kennedy and Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., for the formal dedication of the 100-acre Grey Towers Estate as the Pinchot Institute for Conservation. Scranton has been mentioned as a possible GOP presidential candidate in 1964. Even before Kennedy's departure from Washington, the White House made public the text of his talk at the Pinchot ceremony. This was the opening passage: "I begin today a journey to save America's natural heritage — a journey to preserve the past and protect the future." This was a reference to the fact that inspections of conservation and natural resource projects and talks before conservation-minded audiences account for virtually all the stops on Kennedy's five-day schedule. Saluting Pinchot, who founded the U. S. Forest Service with the backing of Republican President Theodore Roosevelt, Kennedy said: "In the space of a few short years, he made conservation an accepted virtue in the nation's conscience." Series of Actions Pointing to a series of actions and proposals by his administration, Kennedy said he began in 1961 "to increase the pace of resource development and conservation in a variety of ways." He concluded that "if we can continue and expand the programs we have begun," it will be possible to write "a record of saving and using this nation's supply of natural resources to assure a fuller, richer life for all Americans now and for generations to come." Kennedy was to fly to Ashland, Wis., for another conservation speech before addressing an Agriculture Department "land and people conference" In Duluth, Minn., tonight. Kennedy later will make speaking appearances in North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah.

AH the New Eng- (AP May Discuss Air Routes Linking Soviet Union with United States By LEWIS GULICK j UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) —A New York-Moscow commercial air route is one of three items on which Secretary of State Dean! Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko may be able to reach quick agreement in talks this week. Official U.S. sources also fore-, saw possible agreements on building new embassies in Moscow and Washington, and allowing the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to have a private communications link with a U.S. post in Western Europe to speed its dispatches. Bigger East - West questions which Rusk, Gromyko and British Foreign Secretary Lord Home are to explore this week are expected to take much more time. These include such follow-ups to the limited nuclear test ban as exchanging observers to guard against surprise attack and an East-West nonaggression pact. U.S. sources said further consultations among the Western Allies are required before they can agree on the position to take toward such proposals. In August 1961, U.S. negotiators initiated an agreement for a direct U.S.-Soviet air link but re- i fused to sign it because of Soviet Savings Urged Soviets May Feel Shortage of Bread For Inspection McNamara, Taylor In Viet Nam By PETER ABNETT Associated Press Staff Writer SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) -U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara and Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived tonight on a special mission for President Kennedy that may help shape future U.S. policy in South Viet Nam. Their Air Force transport plane landed at Saigons' Tan Son Nhut Airport. U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and Gen. Paul D. Harkins, the top U.S. general here, headed a welcoming group of diplomatic and military officials. Study McNamara and Taylor want to determine whether the conflict of President Ngo Dinh Diem's regime with Buddhist and student opponents is hampering the U.S.- backed war on Communist guerrillas. They are expected to see Diem shortly. McNamara and Taylor also will get out into the field, where U.S. military advisers report the Viet Cong guerrillas are growing bold- er and increasing their resistance, particularly in the Mekong River delta south of Saigon. On the eve of their arrival, the official Viet Nam press reported a series of guerrilla attacks on government strategic hamlets and outposts in the delta, a jungle cut by streams that Is regarded as the most important front In the war against the Viet Cong. Before leaving Washington, McNamara told reporters the war had been going well until very recently. He said he and Taaylor were going to Saigon primarily to see whether the military operation "has been adversely affected by the unrest of the past several weeks." This was a reference to the Diem regime's crackdown on Buddhist and student demonstrators who accused the government of religious persecution. The government denied persecuting the Buddhists and charged the religious movement had been infiltrated by Communists. There also have been reports that U.S. officials in Saigon do not agree on the best policy to be pursued in the situation.

The three-year measure is the first new Kennedy program to clear the 88th Congress. Similar legislation has been under consideration at the Capitol since 1950. The President asked for the bill in his health message t o help avert what he said could be a "particularly serious shortage" of doctors and dentists in the next decade. He estimated that even to continue present ratios of service would require a 50 per cent increase in dental graduates in the next 10 years. The bill would help an estimated 10,000 students with loans of up Rusk scheduled another day of talks with foreign leaders attend- MOSCOW (AP)—Soviet citizens, who doubtless eat more bread than any other single food, are being told at private meetings and in the press to ease an acute shortage by getting along with less. Local leaders are being warned that bread must be saved and that prices may be raised. Despite these warnings there appears no great probability that any Soviet citizen will go seriously short of bread. Emergency wheat purchases abroad, running about 7 million tons, will offset crop losses during the past year due to drought and persistent mismanagement of planting and harvesting. The loss apparently is about 10 per cent of the crop, which last year was 65 million tons. The shortage and the bad harvesting have sent Premier Khrushchev, now In his 70th year, storming about the country denouncing careless farming methods.

This is reflected also in Moscow and other cities. In the capital queues form every time a shop displays any fresh vegetables. Grain was lost in the virgin lands last year because thousands of combines and tractors lay idle in the fields for lack of spare parts. As early as Aug. 28, the paper Farm Life reported that some farms had not finished the repair of harvesting machines and combines before the beginning of this year's harvest. In some areas only 20 per cent of the machinery was used. In the Irkutsk area of eastern Siberia, the paper said, "Peas started to fall out of the pods while drivers were still testing their machines." A half billion dollars is to be paid to Canada in the next 18 months for delivery of 5.3 million tons of wheat and 500,000 tons of flour. Another 1.5 million tons of wheat has been ordered from Australia, with a like amount on option. Much of this will be shipped immediately to the Soviet Union's foreign customers, to protect her position as a supplier. Flour cannot be bought at many stores, apparently because it can be hoarded while bread cannot. Many farmers buy bread to feed to cows and pjgs they are allowed to raise privately for market. One couple was pilloried in the press Sunday for having bought nearly half a ton of flour, bread, rice and macaroni. SHILL MOTOR OIL AT DISCOUNT HOUSE PRICES! SHELL X100 '7 80 Case of 94 Qts. .

Rockefeller of New York began a round of meetings with Italian officials today, the first of a two- day visit to Rome. He will see Pope Paul VI Wednesday without his second wife. The governor and his wife, the former Mrs. Margaretta Fitler Murphy, arrived from New York Monday night to begin a private European Tour. This morning Rockefeller called on Treasury Minister Emilio Colombo while his wife went sightseeing and shopping. Vatican officials were reserved about the divorced governor's audience with the Pope, and declined to give details. One prominent member of the Vatican Curia said that Rockefeller, a Baptist, would be received by • the Pope as the governor of a large U.S. state, and as representative of the people of that state, not as a private person. Greek Ships to Stop Trade with Cuba ATHENS, Greece (AP) .— The Greek government today ordered Greek ships to cease carrying cargo to or from Cuba. Informed sources said the rebels were headed by Haitian ex- Gen. Leon Cantave, who last month led a band of exiles in an invasion attempt to overthrow Haitian dictator Francois Duvalier. Haiti charged the Dominican Republic aided Cantave's operation. Santo Domingo denied it. As the rebel band streamed across the border, witnesses reported rifle and machinegun bullets hit the Dominican town of Djabon. Haiti denied its forces fired (across the border. In turn it accused Dominican soldiers of firing into the Haitian town of Qua- naminthe. Informants said Cantave reported that he led a rebel force against Quanaminthe, ran into a government garrison of 500 men, and lost 60 men killed before 1 retreating across the border. He claimed Haitian forces had 100 casualties. From Washington, President Gonzalo Fncio of the council of the Organization of American States messages appeals to both President Juan Bosch of the Dominican Republic and Haitian President Duvalier to avoid any action that might inflame the situation.
