USA Label Said Better Than Ever By rirajP J. KELTKR AP Business Xeu-s Writer • NEW YORK (AP)-How good •ts the label, "Made in U.S.A." „ Despite recent criticism of the • defense and space industry. , manufacturers say American , traftsmanship Is better than • ever. " But some corporation and ' government officials have been . disturbed over charges of shod• dy workmanship in the nation's . space and nuclear submarine ; programs. ; Is the criticism justified? ,* In some cases, say industry ; sources contacted In an Associ- ; ated Press survey. But the over• all success of America's nuclear and man-in-space programs, they say, indicates that industry is meeting the challenge. Perhaps the toughest critic of American industry is Vice Adm. Hyman G. Rickover, the Navy's atomic expert. He has charged that the nation's factories are •; not meeting the challenges in his field—nuclear submarines. Poor workmanship, Rickover ; laid recently, plagues the atom- l ic-submarine program. Many of » the problems, he said, are with " conventional parts; Parts deliv- l ered late, parts not made to standard, or made of the wrong ' materia]. • Rickover said management • thould shoulder most of the I Maine. ; "Too often," he said, "man- t agement is content to sit in 'i plush offices, far removed i physically and mentally from ; the design and manufacturing ; areas, relying on paper reports ; for information about the status 4 of design and production in the ; plant itself—the real center of • the enterprise." "Much of American industry," I said Rickover, "does not know ' what is going on in its plant." Asked about this, one manufacturing representative replied: "The admiral is going to have to be a hell of a lot more specific before anyone can answer these 20 Rails charges.

Cape Canaveral City Objects To Kennedy Name CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) —The city of Cape Canaveral and the Greater Cocoa Chamber of Commerce don't like the idpa of renaming this cape on the Florida east coast, and President Johnson is going to hear about it. The town council and the chamber adopted similar resolutions Wednesday opposing the change. Copies went to the President, Florida's congressional delegation, Gov. Farris Bryant and Florida Atty. Gen. Richard Ervin. It's all right to designate the missile center in honor of the late President, the council said, but it doesn't want the Cape renamed. The town council questioned legality of either the President or governor "renaming a mass of land which has borne a name of historical significance for more than 400 years." Spanish navigators first named the Cape "Canaveral"—Spanish for reed field or cane field. ... 39 34 .... 61 35 .„ 43 26 37 26 •16 41 46 43 59 44 43 33 30 22 .01 .05 Karyn Wrote Death Notes HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Police say notes threatening the lives of murdered actress Karyn Kupcinet and her former boyfriend, actor Andrew Prine, were sent by Miss Kupcinet herself. Capt. Al Edsel said a note stuck on Prine's front door definitely bore the print of Miss Kupcinet's right middle finger. They theorize she may have stuck the notes on her own door and Prine's in an attempt to gain his sympathy. Detectives said Prine broke up wilh the actress about three weeks before she was strangled to death Nov. 28. Investigators failed to link her slaying through fingerprints with three unsolved murders in her neighborhood. Madame Nhu Blasts Lodge ROME (AP)—Mrs. Ngo Dinh Nhu, widowed former First Lady of South Viet Nam, left by plane for Paris today and on departure delivered a new tirade against the United States and Am bassador Henry Cabot Lodge. She handed out a written four- page statement in rather confused English calling Lodge a "bewildered nanny" in the hands of the "South Vietnamese assas-j sins." She expressed guarded hope | that President Jolinson's policy in South Viet Nam would be better than President Kennedy's. She added, however: "We must pray. . .that the new American policy never sinks into catastrophic innocence or candid malignity, to be loyal and faithful only with gangsters." She was reported going to Paris to confer with a French publisher about printing her memoirs. Goldwater's New Hampshire Filing Delayed WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Norris Cotton said today he is delaying New Hampshire presidential primary campaign plans until Sen. Barry Goldwater Indicates whether he Is willing to ran. Cotton, New Hampshire Republican heading up a committee to put Goldwater's name on the March 10 preferential ballot, said in an interview he has had no conversation with the Arizona Republican since President Kennedy was assassinated. Possibly reflecting indecision about political matters, Goldwater has declined to talk to newsmen since he announced shortly after Kennedy's death that he was canceling all political appearances lor the 30-day period of mourning. Cotton said that Immediately after death removed Kennedy as Goldwater's chief political target and elevated Lyndon B. Johnson, a Texan, to the presidency, he felt the Arizona senator's chances for the nomination had skidded sharply. But he said he subsequently has altered his opinion that Johnson might cut into Goldwater's stronghold of support in the South. He noted Johnson's endorsement of civil rights and other key provisions of Kennedy's legislative program. "Every pronouncement t he new President makes has been putting Goldwater back in business," Cotton said. "He certainly has gone far beyond what was required to honor the memory of his predecessor." The Goldwater people have had to stand by fuming while supporters of New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller have been) blanketing the state on a town- by-town basis drumming up support for their announced candidate for the nomination. Supporters of former Vice President Richard M. Nixon also are reported stirring in the state. He carried New Hampshire by 20,000 votes in 1960 when he lost the presidency to Kennedy by an eyelash. Jews, Arabs To Welcome Pope's Visit By JAMES M. LONG VATICAN CITY (AP) - The unprecedented pilgrimage to the Holy Land by Pope Paul VI will be made in the first 10 days of January, a Vatican spokesman sail today. Jews and Arabs alike welcomed the news. The Pope is expected to break a second precedent by making the trip by plane. No pontiff has flown before, although as a cardinal Pope Paul frequently used planes. Christian and Jewish loaders around the world praised the Pope's decision to make the Pilgrimage, coming at a time when the Catholic Church has taken steps toward Christian unity. King Hussein, Moslem monarch of Jordan, announced that the Pope would be his personal guest. A spokesman for Israel's embassy in Rome said: "We are waiting impatiently to be contacted by the Vatican." Both the Israeli and Jordan embassies said no visas will be required. The pontiff will be visiting a Holy Land long divided by the hostility of Arabs and Jews. In his surprise announcement tit the end of the Vatican Ecumenical Council's second session Wednesday, Pope Paul said he wanted to make the pilgrimage "on behalf of peace among men." The 2,200 cardinals, archbishops, and patriarchs hastened back to their dioceses after the council's second two-month session. The third session of the council will be held in September 1964. J MRS.
