The Trujillo-chureh dispute started last year with a pastora letter in which the bishops urged Trujillo to ease repressive measures. The hostility increased when the bishops rejected Trujillo's demand that the title "benefactor of the church" be added to the long list of titles he holds.

She has he kind of pert, small, slightly roundish figure that Judy Garland had singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Mrs. Massevitch's sandy hair is usually waved, and she even uses a touch of lipstick — a revolution of a kind for the Soviet Union. Her dresses fit Thursday night and are chic. Mrs. Masse- vitch spoke at a public meeting sponsored by the city of Florence. It was a simple lecture along these lines: Once man looked at the stars, then he invented a telescope, now he has made satellites and rockets to fly out there among the stars. Again cheers. She said a man has flown into space and "I am sure there are many in this room who envy him." More cheers. "I envy him very much." That comment stopped the show. When the cheers died down she concluded: "One day a man will fly to another planet. We will have to say to the inhabitants of the other planet that we are from earth. Not from a country, but from earth! So let us settle our roblems on earth peacefully." nu «*s The suit by Adamowski, a publican, sought to upset the election of Daniel Ward, who won by about.26,000 votes. AdamowSto charged wholesale vote fraud. The suit was dismissed. "There were thousands of votes fllegally cast," said Sandquist. "The report does not refute that." Wexler said, however, that the report would not upset the results i of the Nov. 8 voting. A staff of 26 persons, working since December under Wexler's direction, assembled the report Broadway.
