\ THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1963 THE WORLD TODAY A happy setting for a young Sir Galahad whose Imagination is fired by the chronicles of King Arthur is a blend of elements which can be used later in other settings and colorful homemade accessories. By .IAMBS MAKI.OW Associated Press Nous Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Thr United States has bron lucky, in a grisly way, because death was choosy. Eight presidents have died in office, four of them assassinated. Seven vice presidents have died in office. Death never tapped a president and vice president in any single four-year term. But now once again, with Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson moved up to the presidency, there is no vice president. The law which provides for a successor to Johnson, if the president died, is a lot more pretentious looking than it really is. Next in line for the presidency, when there is no president or vice president, are these po- ple in this order: John W. McCormaek of Massachusetts, 71, speaker of the House; Sen. Carl Hayden of Arizona, Sli, president pro tempore of the Senate; and the Cabinet, starling with Secretary of Slate Dean Rusk. This order of succession, laid down by Congress in 1017, seems to be generously spread out over the government. That's misleading. If Speaker McCormaek became the president, he would automatically have to resign HOUSE & SPOUSE!

I Three events could change ! that hut all would have to be extraordinary and seem remote now: 1. The speaker who became president might die—he'd have In die pretty quickly—before the House had a chance to pick a new speaker. If so, the Senate's president pro tempore would become the president. Then the new spcakr when elected, could not be president although he would be No. 1 in line of succession if the new president died. 2. In this nuclear age — in case of attack — so many top officials might be wiped out that only some surviving cabinet member, if any, would bo left under the 1017 law to assume the presidency. 3. Or, there might be an assassination plot to kill the president, vice president, speaker and Senate president pro tempore. If it succeeded, the secretary of state would become president. While John Wilkes Booth killed President Lincoln, his plot called for assassinating Vice President Andrew Johnson, too, and Cabinet members. One Cahinet member, Secretary of State William II. Seward, was seriously stabbed. The would-be killer of Johnson got cold feet and Johnson was able to succeed Lincoln. State Farm Life Insurance Company and Stato Farm Firo and Casualty Company.

SILENT STORM KIN6 TIRES WORLD'S FIRST ABSOLUTELY NOISELESS SNOW TIRE NO DRONING MOANING GROANING 43% MORE GRIPPING POWER EASY TERMS Nancy Just Has To Have Chinese Food By BOB THOMAS AP Movle-Televislon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - You know how expectant mothers get urges for strange and exotic foods? That happens to Nancy Kwan all the time, and to satisfy her yen she has to drive to another country. This has to be explained. You know Nancy, he's the Hong Kong doll, daughter of a Chinese architect and an English model, who became a star in her first film, "The World of Suzie Wong." Pier third picture, "Main Attraction," was film de in the Austrian Alps and there she met a ski instructor and hotel owner named Peter Pock, "The first time I saw that marvelousl-ooking man 1 SAID, 'That's for me,' " she recalled. Within weeks they were married and made their home near Innsbruck. A nice romantic story? Yes, but there is a com- lication. "I still love Chinese food." she explained. "If I go a week without having Chinese food, j become physically ill. This was especially true when I was pregnant, but the craving remains all the time. "But there is not a single Chinese restaurant in all of Austria." Nancy, now the mother of baby Bernhard Pock, made her yearning known to her husband in no uncertain terms. "So he would have to drive me, sometimes in the middle of a blizzard," she said, "to Garmisch or Munich in Germany, two or thre hours away. There I could get a Chinese dinner and I would be happy—for a week." The trips became so regular that her husband finally exclaimed, "it would be a lot simpler to open our own Chinese restaurant." Now they are planning to do just that, together with a hotel they are building in the Austrian tyrol. Nancy is here for her second Hollywood film (the first: "Flower Drum Song"). The new one is "Honeymoon Hotel," in which she appears opposite Robert Goulet and Robert Morse as a social director at a resort. I don't really want to work," she said, "but I have a contract. It is not so bad when I make pictures in Europe; then I am only two or three hours from home by air. When I work in Hollywood, it is not good." Embarrass River Dam Inquiry Today CHARLESTON, It . CAP) Proposals to put a collar on the Embarrass River's flood habits will be reviewed Tuesday at a hearing sponsored by Army engineers. A key to the proposals would be Lincoln Rcsoi-vnir in Coles County. Officials have estimated the lake would cost $30 million, and would hold water equal to a channel 100 miles long, a mile wide and eight feet deep. Engineers have estimated up to 74 per cent of some portions of the Embarrass basin are flood prone, hey said the 1.6 million-acre watershed contributes considerably to floods along the Wabash and lower Ohio riv- vers. The hearing at Eastern Illinois University begins at 7:30 p.m. CST. Finds Key To Star Mystery In Cave WASHINGTON (AP) - The elusive neutrinos—a key to the mysteries of earth and stars- have finally been observed by man. Ironically, Dr. Clyde Cowan of Catholic University made his observations in a cave deep in the mountains in Maryland. Neutrinos are chargless bits from the heart of atoms and travel at the speed of light. Some have ben manufactured in atom-smashers. But although trillions of neutrinos from the sun and distant stars bombard the earth daily, they have escaped observation until now. Physicist Cowan announced at a Catholic University seminar Friday that he had been observing cosmic neutrinos since last spring with the help of colleagues. Scientists regard neutrinos as a major key to understanding of all matter on earth and the brith and death of stars. Cowan made his observations in a cave the government made available to him in a restricted area in Maryland. What Cowan calls his "tie- scope" is a collection of cylinders filled with double - weight hydrogen. If a neutrino Interacts with a proton in the hydrogen a so-called "neutrino event" is recorded.
