ILLINOIS Assassination Investigation May Take Year WASHINGTON (AP) -Some officials predicted privately to­ day that It may be a year before Chief Justice Earl Warren's commission finished investigating the assassination of President John F.

There was evidence from Warren that the commission considers the massive FBI investigation report, delivered to the seven commission members Monday night, just the starting point for its task. Within 21 hours Warren announced the appointment of a general council, former U.S. Solicitor General J. Lee Rankin, as the first step in providing the commission with a staff. THE BIG DRIVE?

North would start with a forcing two club or two spade bid and then would move slowly fearing that his partner would be bidding on high cards in the red suits. Of course, some players reached seven spades after an opening two bid, but the bidding sequence that had least trouble getting there started with a one club opening by North. South had a natural spade response and now North was in trouble, but pleasant trouble. How was he going to show his full strength? He finally decided that the only way would be through a Blackwood four no-trump. I don't know exactly what he planned to do if South's response showed no aces, but when South showed one ace, North continued with five no- trump. I think that North would have gambled out the grand slam if South had shown his one king, but South never gave North a chance. North and South were playing that a Blackwood five no-trump as a follow-up to four no-trump guaranteed all four aces. So South knew about all the aces. He also was pretty sure that North had at least four spades to the ace-king. How else could North have done all that bidding after merely opening one club? In that case, South's king of clubs and queen of spades had to be all that was needed for a grand slam in spades so South bid it. Television Review By CYNTHIA LOWRY NEW YORK (AP) - The American Broadcasting Company at the start of a special documentary program Tuesday night promised dramatically to introduce us to a new breed of woman—the emancipated, hardworking Soviet woman. Then for the next hour, its films and the Russian women interviewed all tended to prove! that modern Soviet women are pretty much like women all over the world, including the United States. While "The Soviet Woman" did not prove the narrator's premise it was still a most interesting program. Instead of the usual concentration on Kremlin thunder and politics, it pulled together a portrait of family life and the workaday world of the average Russian. Women far outnumber men, many of whom were killed in World War II, and thus comprise about one-half of the Soviet working force. They also are employed in areas where few American women have important footholds. They predominate, for instance, in the field of medicine. The Soviet woman like many of her American sisters, finds it is necessary to hold down a job as both parent and employe in order to make ends meet. Because the U.S.S.R. needs worn anpower the state has kindergartens, nurseries and boarding schools to make it easier for her. "Big Mitch," written for NBC's "Richard Boone Show" by the late Clifford Odets, was announced as a comedy. What it turned out to be Tuesday night, however, was a rather painful and not funny story about a noisy old fraud who talks big, won't work and is so selfish that he attempts to break up his daughter's September romance. Perhaps in other hands, Big Mitch might have come off as a charming, lovable fellow. But Boone, whatever his talents, just isn't an actor with that kind of gentle approach, and comedy isn't exactly his dish either.

POINT OF NO RETURN NEW YORK </P)—Once man learns a dangerous secret, it is impossible for him to get rid of the danger. Rabbi Arthur Lely- velcl, of Cleveland, put the point in these terms in a speech here: "Men, having achieved the capacity to destroy himself, will continue to have that capacity forever, and thus every decision is unprecedentedly porten- tuous."
