(AP) —Steak and baby food, medical checks, star-gazing, make-believe ! space rides—that's what an as- j tronaul's day is made of. Virgil I. Grissom and John H. Gll^n Jr., had these items, to be in schedule today as they entered the final phase of preparation for America's second manned space flight, scheduled Tuesday morning. Grissom, 35, an Air Force cap- lainn is reliably reported lo be the No. 1 choice for the flight, wiUh Glenn, 3!), a Marine lieulanl colonel, standing by as backup pilol as he did on Ihc Alan B. Sheparcl flight. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration will reveal the name of the chosen astronaut Monday, 24 hours before launch. The flight will be a near-duplicate of Shepard's trip May 5. A { R.ffcilone rockcl is lo boosl the manned capsule 115 miles high and 300 miles down range in a tcsl designed lo train another space pilot and build experience and confidence for fulure orbit missions. Grissom and Glenn loday began a low-residue high energy diet to reduce possibility of excretion and provide quick-burning reserve slSnglh during flight. They were served in a special ready room al the Cape. An official outlined this typical one-day menu: Breakfast — orange juice, hoi cereal, Canadian bacon, two boiled eggs, toast, jelly and coffee. Lunch—broiled chicken baby food—type peas, bread without crust, collage cheese salad, ice tea and sugar cookies, Dinner— biy'.lccl potato without skin, baby foil vegetable, sherbet and coffee. Both asronauls were lo don- silver space suits and run through practice missions while scaled in Ihc actual space capsule alop Ihe Redslonc. They also studied charts of the heavens and Ihc earth beneath the planned capsule path so certain features will b<^ recognizable. The astronauts have picked the name Liberty Bell 7 for the spacecraft. Shepard's vehicle was i Freedom 7. The number reprc- j scats the total membership of Ihc | Mercury astronaut leam. I Liberty Bell 7 contains several | modifications, including a large observation window, improved j manual controls and a new escape hatch designed for quicker cfft in case of emergency.

The Krcmcns, parents of another child, Jeffrey, 13, believe their younger son was kidnaped. "What else can we believe when no other clues were uncovered in a years time?" the mother asked. Bruce whose ninth birthday is July 21, was reported missing by YMCA officials July 13, 1'JGO. , lie was last seen by Iwo companions on a trail about, half a mile from Ihc Buckhorn Flats area after the three boys decided to leave their group and return lo camp. • Capl. C. D. Fontaine, command- inl officer of the Los Angeles County sheriff's juvenile bureau, said more man-hours have been [ power spent on Bruce's case than on any other lost person in this state. An 11-day search, including volunteers, was called off after no clues were found last July. "We have sent crews back many limes," Fontaine said. The forest, mountainous and heavily wooded, covers GUI,0.12 acres. Stale Police LI. ,1. II. Porterfield said, "Every street was littered with brush and leaves and big trees that were uprooted." The Police radio system was knocked out and officers were forced to use "walkie-talkies" for communications. At Tcxarkana, 30 miles away, the storm was reported to have diminished and the damage was minor. Only a few trees were blown over. Winds with gusts up to 3li miles an hour were recorded at xTcxarkana. Dennis Bell, superintendent of Hope's city-owned power plant said the department was working hard to restore power services and lo keep residents off hot lines. But he said il. would probably be sometime Salurday morning before all power was restored. A funeral home at Hope sut'ferd heavy damage when it was struck by a large falling tree. NFAVBURGH, N.Y. (ATM—This Hudson Valley community of 31,000, acting in defiance of New York stale, today puts into effect 13-point program clamping ! down on the flow of welfare aid. The controversial sel of regulations, designed by the Republican-controlled City Council lo shrink the welfare bill, has brought praise and condemnation from across the nation. Slate officials, up lo Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, have, expressed opposition to the regulations. The State Welfare Department said the rules are contrary to federal and state law. But City Manager Joseph Mitchell insisted "they are legal" and j said the city was within its rights in putting them into effect. Mitchell claims that more rigid requirements were needed to curb welfare costs, now amounting to $!)i)H,0!!r> out of a $3 million city budget. More than half the aid, however, comes from federal and slate contributions. State officials fear that imposition of the restrictions might block federal welfare funds to all stale communities. In Washington, a Social Security spokesman said his agency is watching developments in Newburgh, But he said any comment on the situation now would be "inappropriate." A question still to be answered was what action Gov. Rockefeller plans lo lake. Rockefeller, a Republican, said he has "the atilborily and power to remove local government officials from office" if they violate the stale law and constitution, which includes provisions for the needy. Among the 13-poinls whieh provide: That '-welfare recipients, except the blind and inform, be limited to three months of public assistance in any one year. That unwed mothers who bear additional children be, ,<(lricken from welfare rolls. That payments be balled to all able-bodied men who refuse work on city projects.

WASHINGTON (AP) —Suddenly Ihe Wesl is beginning to hell Premier Khrushchev, gag him on his own words, put him on the defensive. It's a switch. He's been doing the pitching, the West the catching. If this is a put-up job — agreement between Western allies to turn Ihe tables — this writer hasn't been able to nail il down. But they've conferred steadily on his Berlin rumpus. Now together they're potshot!ing him. For weeks he's acted like a loudmouth, threatening to push Ihe Allies out of West Berlin, bragging of Soviel power. It's kept Ihe Allies jumpy, defensive, apparently uncertain how to handle him. Then Ihis week the blasts from from French President Charles De Gaulle. West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk, Lincoln While, Slate Department press | officer and spokesman, and even Sen. Hubert Humphrey, Minnesota Democrat. De Gaulle, who doesn't talk ioflen. said Ihe Wesl won't let the are those; Soviets settle Berlin's fate by | themselves, warned they'll be responsible for any "grave consequences" of a Berlin crisis.

(API —A Midas satellite equipped to detect hostile missile firings was circling the earth every 2 hours and 40 minutes today in a record- breaking orbit that repeatedly takes il over the Soviel Union. Midas II, the first in the missile-alarm scries lo be launched from the West Coast, carries infrared equipment which can spot rt'Jfkct exhaust. The rocket—a big Atlas booster topped by an Agcna second-stage vehicle—blasted off at 11:12 a.m. Wednesday from this Navy missile base adjacent to Vandenbcrg Air Force Base. Air Force officials were jubilant, since the high altitude and circular orbit will permit the spy- |,ype~ vehicle to scan wider areas, ^jfiff same officials were firm, however, in refusing lo issue progress reports on Ihe satellite. All they would say was that Midas Ill's first pass over the Soviel Union would take place five hours after launch and that il would be in scanning range of Soviet missile bases in Ihe Ural Mountains six hours later. Ultimately, a network of sky h^iijuls is expected to double the present 15-minute radar warning time of missile attack.

It seems that Johnny Weismuller doesn't do that sort of thing any more, Buster Crabbc couldn't be located, and Esthei Williams had a previous engage menl. After Saturday night's show, everyone agrees, "Well who needed 'em?" Al. the suggestion of Parks-Rec real ion Director Charles Gougl the team was formed with Davk Walkins al Ihe helm to, call the strokes.

The comedian advised them he can't read a note of music. The performance raised more than $25,000 for the musicians' pension fund. The 104 members of the orchestra were formally clad. Kaye arrived in a sport jacket. 11 was a warm night, so Kaye had members of the orchestra play one number standing up, so they would be cooler. Then he had the audience stand up for a while rhythm is the keynote, music was a "must."

This kind of psychological assault can't help but hurl Khrushchev with satellites and neutrals. Major cause for the refugee flighl seems lo be food shortages — for instance, in potatoes and butter — and slepped-up Red pressure upon the East Germans to support communism more actively. Khrushchev, in his finagling on Berlin, called for signing separate peace treaties wilh Wesl and East Germany, an unthinkable situation for Adenauer, who wants a single, unified Germany. But Adenauer's Bonn government used (his against Khrushchev, wilh a twist to hurl, 11 pointed out. that the Soviet Union, in joining the Unilec Nations, had agreed lo Ihc principle that all peoples should have Ihc right to determine their own iiture. Wesl Germany called on Khrushchev to live up lo the pledge, told him: Sign a peace treaty wilh a single German government elected by all Germans,' East and West. Since letting the East Germans vole on a single German government is Ihe last thing Khrushchev wants, he won't permit it. But it was good propaganda against him.

(Al 1 )—After nearly 211: weeks of bargaining, Ihe aulo companies and the United Auto Workers came lo grips loday on issues lhal could lead to a strike in the aulo industry if they aren't, sell led by Ihe end of next month. The issues represent Ihe union's bread-and-buller demands— Higher wages and improved fringe benefits. General Motors Corp. served notice Thursday lhal, "both subjects will be a most serious part of our collective bargaining talks three-yen..!" contracts wit-h GM. Ford and Chrysler expire Aug. III. GM Vice President Louis G. Sealon said, "We say this because il is obvious too great an increase in employment, costs whether in the form of wages, fringe benefits, or both, can only push up costs lo Ihe point where renewed inflation w.ould again result in rising prices." The union singled oul GM in outlining ils wage demands for the first lime. They figured oul lo an increase of al. least 2(i cents an hour in Ihe basic wages of GM's 310,000 production workers. This would include the 17 cents jan hour cost of living allowance UAW members now receive in addition lo straight lime pay of Cost of Weed Control in Cotton Fields What does it cost lo control weeds in cotton'.' In order lo answer this with factual information a survey was conducted by Wade Benefield, associate county agent for llempstead county. Tiiis information was obtained to determine Ihe relative value ol hand labor versus pre-cmergence weed control for cotton. Eleven farms were visited lo determine the cost of hoe labor in controlling weeds and the cost varied from $8.50 to $IH.ti5 per acre wilh an average i cost per acre of $12.40.

The UAW put no estimates on its wage demands but il issued a statement declaring il was inaccurate and misleading to say they would amount basically to an increase of 20 cents an hour. UAW Vice President Leonard Woodcock, head of the union's bargaining learn at GM said in no way could I lie 17 cents eosl of living allowance be considered "new money." Woodcock described GM's attitude as "nil-General Motors-like" because, he said, GM had joined the UAW in 104(1 in pioneering the aulo industry wage formula. He said two former GM presidents, C. E. Wilson and Harlow Curtice, had called the formula noninfla tionary. Under present contracts, Ihc auto workers gel an annual wage increase of 2U per cent, or (i cents an hour. The union seeks to boost this lo at least 3.4 per cent or about 9 cents an hour. This is known as the annual improvement factor and is based on the weed j theory of annual growth in the j nation's productivity. The union wants Ihe 17-ccnl cost of living allowance made permanent in the new contracts 11 also seeks to keep in effect the escalator clause tying wages with the ups and downs of the government's cost of living index. The UAW bargaining teams plan to wind up presentation of their main demands today al GM and Ford.
