Charles Yeager, first man to break the sound barrier, piloted a rock-like "Flying Bathtub" to earth, then anounced, "She handles great." Yeager made his first flight Tuesday in the experimental M2, a boat-shaped re-entry vehicle. At flight's end Yeager predicted the craft may become the "space chute" of the future. The M2 looks like a bullet cut in half with the pilot canopy on the top side. It was developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as a veb icle to ferry men or equipment back to earth from space stations. Yeager, 42, was towed to an altitude of 9,000 feet at the end of a cable, then cut loose and allowed to drift to earth at a rate of descent of 4,000 feet a min ute. The wingless M2, with its round-bottomed hull, provided air resistance to keep it from falling like a rock. A few feet above ground, Yeager tilted the M2's nose in a flare-out to re duce his speed t 80 m.p.h.Small TV surfaces on either side gave extra stability and directional control.

WalTstreet NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market moved to the plus column in fairly active trading this afternoon. Volume for the day was estimated at 4.7 million shares against 4.54 million Tuesday. The advance showed little real power. The New York Stock Exchange ticker tape fell behind floor transactions on three occasions. U.S. Steel and Chrysler, which had been lower by fractions in early trading, made comebacks. U.S. Steel posted a gain of more than a point and Chrysler was up 2V&. A loss of 2V4 by Du Pont put the brakes on the averages. Pan American World Airways advanced a point on its announcement after the close of trading Tuesday of a 2-for-l stock split and a dividend increase. Liggit & Myers gained 3Y2 on continued reaction to a favorable report on charcoal filter cigarettes. General Motors shook off a fractional loss and added half a point. Xerox, off 8 points at one period, shaved the loss to a point. Prices on the American Stock Exchange were irregularly higher in moderate trading. Corporate bonds were mixed and governments were mostly unchanged.

Protestant Churchman Lauds JFK By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PHILADELPHIA (AP)-"Short as was John Kennedy's time in office," says a leading American Protestant, "it was long enough to make it abundantly clear that those who had feared, for any reason, a Roman Catholic president, had misunderstood both the man and his Church." The Rev. Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, head of the United Presbyterian Church of the U.S.A., made the statement Tuesday night in delivering the eulogy at a memorial service for Kennedy. His audience was the sixth general assembly of the National Council of Churches, an organization of 31 Protestant and Eastern Orthodox denomi- tions. Kennedy, first Catholic President of the United States, was to have addressed Tuesday night's session. Instead, the council paid tribute to the President, who was assassinated Nov. 22. Dr. Blake said Kennedy's appearance here "would have clearly symbolized the beginning of a new era of hope for Christian cooperation in the United States." Another speaker, Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania, called for Americans to rally around the memory of two assassinated Presidents — Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln — and their drive for human freedom. "If we do but that, this nation, under God, will have a new birth of freedom," he said. "If we do that, we shall not perish from the earth." Detailed Weather Report MT.

She pleased an audience in the Drury Lane Theater-in-the- Round. Miss Churchill, daughter of former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, was aided by a cast, including actress Tony Gilman and John Himes. The play has a four week run. cree grants permission for the use of modern languages instead of Latin in the Mass and Sacraments. American bishops announced they would make full use of the permission to substitute English for Latin. They said they planned to meet next spring to approve Englist translations. Substitution of modem languages for Latin and other major points of the decree were made known in summary form during the past months of council debate. With the distribution of full tPxt today, other details be came known. Its opening paragraph said the council "desires to impart an ever increasing vigor to the Christian life of the faithful; to adapt more suitably to the needs of our own times those institutions which are subject to change; to foster whatever can promote union among all who believe in Christ; to strengthen whatever can help to call the whole of mankind into the household of the Church." "The council therefore sees particularly cogent reasons for undertaking the reform and promotion of the liturgy," the docu ment said. The decree deals only with Roman Catholic worship, but it emphasizes the importance of Scripture in liturgy and advocates more preaching. Scripture and preaching are strongly emphasized by Protestants. Some non-Catholics feel Catholicism does not pay sufficient attention to them. The decree sets general principles and guidelines. Special liturgical commissions, set up by national and regional bishops' conferences, will work out the actual changes, including prayers and other texts in modern languages. Commission proposals will go to the Vatican for final approval. Illinois Temperatures Belleville — Moline Peoria _ Quincy Rantoul -.

The mercury edged to near zero in a few spots, but generally temperatures across most areas in the eastern two-thirds of the country were in the 20s and 30s. Higher marks prevailed in Southern sections. Lowest readings included 1 above in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and zero in Wausau, Wis. It was 10 above in northwest suburbs of Chicago, and 15 degrees higher in Chicago. Heavy snow blanketed northern New England. Nearly a foot of snow covered the ground at Rumford, Maine, with heavy falls also reported in many other areas. Lighter amounts of snow were reported southward to the Virginia mountains and westward to the lower Great Lakes region. Another belt of light snow fell in North Central areas. Staley Keeps NFO Control DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Oren Lee Staley, Missouri farmer, apparently will keep control of the National Farmers' Organization for another year. Staley, 40, has been president of the NFO since shortly after it was founded in 1955, and appears a shoo-in for a ninth term. Although a group of insurgents has been sharply critical of Staley and his leadership, no challenger had come forward to run against him when the annual NFO convention got under way today. A spokesman for the insurgents said his group would have a candidate for the presidency, but declined to name him. It is doubtful whether any challenger could pick up sufficient support before the elections Thursday to unseat Staley. Staley is extremely popular with the members, hundreds of whom he called by name. He has declined to listen to insurgents' complaints in the past and says he will continue with present NFO policies which emphasize the threat of holding actions — keeping farm products from market — in the campaign to boost farmers' income.

(AP)—The stage was set today for Allan P. Kirby, 71-year-old Eastern financier, to grasp once more the reins of giant Alleghany Corp., wrested from him more than 30 months ago. Nowhere in sight for the Alleghany stockholders' meeting, convened to restore Kirby to power, were the oil-rich Murch ison brothers of Texas who toppled him from command of the vast raih-oad and investment company empire in May 1961. John D. Murchison, -11, captain of the successful dissident forces of 2Vi years ago, was reported inspecting his investment in a Colorado ski resort, Clint W. Murchison Jr., 39, was said to be in Dallas looking after other Murchison interests. A $16.8-million stock-purchase transaction arranged early last July and executed Oct. 31 sealed the victory for Kirby and his allies. The intervening time was required to tie together loose ends and for procedural steps, climaxed today with election of a new slate of Alleghany directors, headed by Kirby and including his sons, Fred M. and Allan Jr. Kirby was expected to resume direction as board chairman. As a New York holding company, Alleghany overseas assets of about $7 billion. Its prime holdings are effective control of Investors Diversified Services, a $4-billion Minneapolis-based investment company complex, and the $2.5-billion New York Central Railroad, the nation's third largest. Man Missing Here Two Days; Start Search A search has begun for a Mt. Vernon man who has been missing since Monday morning. Missing is Joe M. Parker. 51, of the Centralia Road. Mr. Parker, a Mt. Vernon high school bus driver and a foreman at the bus garage, was last seen about 9:00 a. m. Monday when he said he was ill and was going home. Mrs. Parker, who reported her husband's disappearance to the sheriff's office, said she fears he has either had an accident or has met with foul play. A description of Mr. Parker has been broadcast over the state police radio system. Mr. Parker is five feet nine inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He was wearing a grey work suit, a navy blue whipcord jacket and a black leather winter cap with ear flaps. Mr. Parker drives a white 195-1 Packard with black top and red leather upholstery. The license number is JX-1281. RIGHTS BILL ENDANGERED BY PRESSURE (Continued From Page One) tain to produce resentment among Republicans who support the civil rights bill, but who have never signed a discharge petition and never plan to. They contend that Republicans have done enough to help get a civil rights bill to make them immune from such pressures. The bill now in the Rules Committee was worked out largely by the Justice Department and key GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee as a compromise to break a committee deadlock. The original report contains stinging criticism of the bill by Southern Democrats, and seven Republicans took it upon themselves to provide a rebuttal. The Republicans called the bill the most significant legislation to come before Congress "in our lifetime," and wrote a strong endorsement of each of its 10 provisions. Iowa Voters Reject Remap DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Rural Iowa's urban centers, long with a minority voice in the legislature, soundly defeated a reapportionment plan that would have done little to enhance their position. What follows Tuesday's special election on a plan for reapportioning the Iowa Legislature apparently will be determined in United States courts. There also was the possibility that Democratic Gov. Harold Hughes, who campaigned hard to beat the proposal, could call a special legislative session to work on a new plan. A three-judge federal panel has held that present apportionment is unfair to residents of larger counties. It has pending a suit filed by two officials of the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, attacking the reapportionment plan. The plan, authored by Sen. David O. Shaff, R-Clinton, fell before an avalanche of no votes from the 17 most populous counties which have more than half of the state's 2.78 million population. The unofficial final tabulation had 271,214 votes in opposition, with 163,417 coming from the 17 counties. The yes vote was 191,421, with 48,113 being cast in the urban centers. The proposition carried in 64 of the 99 counties. The outcome was a major defeat for the strong Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, the Iowa Manufacturers Association and a number of Republican party leaders who actively favored the plan. They had pushed the proposal through two successive sessions of the legislature and to a vote of the people as required of a constitutional amendment. It called for a 58-member Senate, based on population districts to cross county lines, and a House of 99 Representatives, one from each county. The Senate now is composed of 50 members and the House has 10. The defeat leaves the state with its present system of apportionment. Hooded Gunman Robs Cairo Office CAIRO, 111. (AP) —The Cairo Public Utility's downtown business office was robbed Tuesday by a hooded gunman who fled with nearly §1,300, police said. A hood with eye holes cut in it was found discarded near the office after the robber left. Death Rate Goes Higher With Smoking By WILIAM C. HARRISON Associated Press Science Writer PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)-You are past 40: Been smoking since age 15 or before? Inhale? A new barrage of figures linking smoking to disease and death may seem centered on you. The broadest study of the subject yet mnde shows death rates increase with extent of exposure to cigarette smoke, says the American Cancer Society. Its report today came on the heels of a proposal by the American Medical Association's Board of Trustes for a research program on tobacco and health "beyond statistical evidence." The American Cancer Society's report was based on 422,094 men who filled out detailed questionnaires and then were traced for an average of 34.3 months. Dr. E. Cuyler Hammond, the society's director of statistical research, outlined the new findings at the 17th annual clinical meting of the American Meli- cal Association. The figures confirm previous findings and go further, he said. Pipe-smoking Dr. Hammond reported death rates were far higher among cigarette smokers than non - smokers, they increased with amount of smoking, and they were lower among ex-smokers of a year or longer than among current smokers. The latest study, aimed at re futing challenges to six earlier ones, includes many new factors. One part of it compares death rates of 36,975 matched pairs (one smoker and one non smoker). The "twins" were matched for age, race, height, urban or rural residence, and numerous other characteristics—even degree of baldness and frequency of eating fried foods. The smoker in each pair used a pack of cigarettes a day or more. Of the 36,975 matched pairs, 1,385 of the smokers died during the study compared with 662 of the non-smokers. Lung cancer killed 110 of the smokers, 12 of the non-smokers. Fifteen smokers died of emphysema, another lung disease, compared with 1 non-smoker. More than twice as many smokers as non-smokers (684 and 312; died of two arterial diseases. Other causes felled 576 smokers compared with 329 of the non-smoking "twins." Among smokers age 40 to 69 who started before agp 15 the death rate was 2.9 as high as among those who never smoked regularly. Lung cancer death rates of current cigarette smokers were 11 times as high as non-smokers —18 times as high among very heavy smokers. The American Tobacco Institute has said conclusive scientific evidence is lacking to show connection between cancer and smoking. Dr. Hammond said other diseases found related to cigarette smoking included cancer of the mouth, throat and bladder, and gastric ulcers.

This program presents the orchestra In its first appenrnnco for this season. This "free to the public" concert will tako place in the high school auditorium on December 0. In like manner the Community-College Chorus will present its Christmas concert (also first for this year) at 8:15 on December 16. Because of tho nnture of the program it will take place at the First. Presbyterian church on Ashley Roud at 25th street. The orchestra plays a program of light, classics and show music ranging from the 18lh century English composer, Purcell to Johnny Mercer and Richard Rodgers. Composers of many nations are represented as well. One of tho highlights of this concert is the appearance of the Faculty (resident) String Quartet from Southern Illinois University as guest artists. All members of the quartet, nro faculty members and come to southern Illinois not only with u rich experience in both orchestra literature and performance but chamber works ns well. Throe of the members are now since 1062, but one has been with tho School of Music at S1U since 1945. This is John Wharton, 2nd violin in the quartet, who lias been tho concertmnstor of the SIU Symphony for years. The first violinist, is also the conductor of the SIU Symphony, Warren vim Brnnkhorsf. Tho Honolulu Symphony (concertmaster) a n cl the Honolulu String Quartet, were some of his performance opportunities along with being a first violinist with the Rochester (N.y.)

The quartet (Continued From Page One) pedestrian under or overpass would alleviate any danger to walking students and visitors. "The proximity of business is another advantage that has been misinterpreted as a disadvantage. Assuming the availability of sufficient land, the best possible location for a community college would be in the center of the community it is to serve. The facilities of the Central Business District and Community College are mutually available one to the other and are convenient also to the surrounding community. Public facilities such as sewers, water and other utilities are existing; commuting services are existing; housing for faculty and a certain number of students who may desire it is available. The desirability of an educational facility physically isolated from an area It serves, alone and serene in its isolation has recently come under criticism." The plan states that, "A community college which both by suggestion and fact serves the community would seem to be misplaced in the open fields outside the city."

The Mozart "Quartet in C Major" and tho Shostako­ vich "Quartet No. 1" have been selected for the performance. For those who enjoy South American rhythms and flavor, Mr. Smith and the Comtnunity- College Orchestra have chosen the "Andalucia" Suite by f.o- cuona from which tho very popular "Malaguena" (piano solo) has been taken. Tt is not too often that, the entire suite Is heard and certainly then not. for orchestra. Another piece of program musk: which surely should catch the fancy of this area is the Richard Rodgers Selections from "Carousel". Many will remember this music from an operetta presentation of several years aso. Joyce Pigge and Ollie Wafer nro featured in the "Trumpet Tune and Air" (Purcell) and Johnny Browder and Roger Taylor join Joyce Pigue in the trio for "Bugler's Holiday" (Leroy Anderson). Mrs. Yvonne Glesel- man (pianist) has solo work in a brilliant number, "Mexican Fire Dance." To orchestra music lovers Gliere's "Russian Sailor's Dance" is a real "must" from time to time. This is the concluding number on a program which should have a lot of interest for many. %u ato inviteJ k attend out OPENING FRIDAY AND SATURDAY DECEMBER 6 and 7 WILSON SHELL SERVICE 10th and Jordan Phone 244-0603 FRANK WILSON Owner SPECIALIZING IN: Motor Tune-up Broke Service Wheel Balancing Minor Repair Work Mufflers and Tail Pipes Installed Four 16-0z.
