tastofPhotos Taken of Mars ^PASADENA, Calif, —(m— Mariner 4 finished sending back Saturday all 21 of its hoped-for Mars photos — and a'bit of a bonus 22d as well. A spokesman for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory said the spacecraft finished radio- irig its tape-recorded picture data at 2:36 p.m. Racine time. After an interval of sending back engineering information, the recorder was expected to switch tracks automatically and start sending all pictures over again, starting with No, 1 About 10 per cent of the 22d picture was received before the tape ended. The spokesman said its quality was not yet known but presumably it was very dark. From about picture No. 19 on, he said, the photos were made in progressing Martian twilight. Mariner was 142.5 million miles from Earth when it completed its photo transmission. The historic pictures were taken by the spacecraft's television camera during a 25- njinute period July 14 when Mariner 4 passed within 6,118 miles of Mars. -The spokesman said more pictures are expected to be released but that he didn't know how many would be made public or on what day. RUSS ASTRONOMER LAUDS MARS PHOTOS MOSCOW —(JP)— A Soviet astronomer Saturday called the American Mariner 4 p:h o t o reconnaissance of Mars "a staggering achievement." .;The Soviet news agency T0SS quoted Alexander Mik- hailov as saying "we Soviet scientists congratulate our Aijnerican. colleagues on a great scientific and technical achievement." -Mikhailov's comment was one of the most enthusiastic Soviet reactions seen thus far.

State Democratic Unit Asks Chief, GOP Head Discuss 4-Year Terms MADISON — (/P) — The State Detmocratic Party's Administrative Committee asked Chairman J. Louis Hanson Saturday to meet with his Republican counterpart in an attempt to get legislative approval of four-year terms for constitutional officers. The motion, approved unanimously, said Hanson should confer with GOP State Chairman Ody Fish of Pewaukee and if possible meet with legislative leaders this week. David Carley of Madison, Democratic national committeeman, offered the motion because he said Wisconsin government has "no continuity." List Offices Two successive legislatures would have to approve a resolution calling for four-year terms for the governor, lieu- But Racial Relations Are Mainly Smooth Prejudice Ever) Pokes Its Way into Hawaii, Paradise of Pacific HONOLULU — m — Hawaii is considered an example of racial harmony, but once in awhile the racial lid blows off even in the islands. A Boston woman, Mrs. David B. Ekman, island resident for nine years, is the latest public critic of racism as practiced in the 50th state. She turned up at Honolulu's Kamehameha school for girls last month requesting enrolment for her Caucasian daughter, Lola, 14. Mrs. Ekman was told there are no vacancies in the private school this year or next. Its president. Dr. James W. Bushong, admitted the Kamehameha schools — one for boys and one for girls- give preference to students of Hawaiian or part Hawaiian blood. The schools were established in 1887 under the will of Mrs. Bernice Bishop, who stipulated that preference be given to orphans and needy children of Hawaiian or part-aborigtnal blood. Quote Governor The practice! has been, however, to admit only Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian students, from needy or affluent families. Gov. John A. Burns said last February that with an admission system based on 'quotas' at certain educational institutions, "we cannot enter the court of human rights with absolutely clean hands." Mrs. Ekman said she may try to test the Kamehameha school's policy in the courts. "They told me there was no room for my daughter, but that's what they told James Meredith at the University of Mississippi," she said. "AJA Preferred" A state fair employment practices act, enacted last year, was considered necessary to ban racial discrimination within business and industry. Passage of a law also became necessary to stop landlords restricting property rentals to people of a certain race. Newspaper classified pages were once peppered with the notation, "AJA preferred," the "AJA" standing for "American of Japanese ancestry." Even now, one of Honolulu's high class residential districts has an unwritten rule forbidding the sale of property to anyone other than Caucasians. The military housing office keeps a list of apartments which consistently turn down Negro applicants. Last year, some dance hall owners in downtown Honolulu refused to admit Negroes. They said Filipino patrons objected. When a new Japanese theater was opened in 1964, vandals painted obscene racial words on its outside walls. Essentially Caucasian The Chamber of Commerce of Honolulu is essentially a Caucasian group but open to other races. There are also the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii; the Honolulu Chinese Junior Chamber of Commerce; the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce; the Korean Chamber of Commerce of Honolulu; and the Honolulu Filipino Chamber of Commerce. A Honolulu city hall em­ ploye remarked, "I suppose if you v/anted to walk down there and join any of these, they'd admit you to membership, but you'd feel mighty uncomfortable." Many Japanese He was a "hao^," the ac­ cepted Hawaiian word in the islands "white man." There are approximately 286,000 "haoles" living in the 50th state. The next largest segment of the population is people of Japanese decent, who number 208,000. There are 4,000 Chinese; 103,000 part-Hawaiians; 10,000 full- blooded Hawaiians; and 73,000 Filipinos. Slightly less than 16,000 Koreans and Samoans, and 9,000 Negroes, make up the state's 70Q,000-plus population. Forty per cent of these people intermarry. Earlier this year, Governor Burns' son— a "haole"—married a part- Korean girl. "Balance" in Hawaii politics almost always mean—a slate of candidates who stem from divergent racial backgrounds and therefore represent a cross-section of the community. For instance the state Senate is split 12-12 Caucasian and Japanese, with one Hawaiian. The House has 26 members of Japanese ancestry; 13 Caucasians; four Hawaiians; five Chinese; and two Filipinos. "Gives Me Great Hope" The governor is caucasion; the lieutenant governor Hawaiian; the state attorney general Japanese; the state labor director Filipino; the budget director Chinese. In Honolulu City Council, the chairman is one of three Caucasians on the nine-member body; there are five mem- Navy Scuttles Suggestion to Turn Carrier into Jail BALTIMORE -~ (/P) — In Navy parlance, it "sighted suggestion, sank same," for a proposal to convert an old aircraft carrier into a floating jail annex. Warden Hiram L. Schoon- field advanced the plan to alleviate crowded conditions at the Baltimore City Jail. Kenneth E. BeLieu, Under Secretary of the Navy, torpedoed it. He wrote: "I regret to say that since all reserve fleet aircraft carriers are required for possible future use in the event of emergencies, none is presently available. "Even if one were available, the body of public opinion against the use, as prisons, of ships in which thousands of fine Americans have served, fought and died would create serious reservations about such a transfer." He also suggested the cost "may be greater than Baltimore officials realized." tenant governor, attorney general, state treasurer and secretary of state. Their terms now are two years. The question would be placed on a ballot for a vote of the electorate before the Wisconsin Constitution could be changed. Several proposals are before the Legislature regarding four-year terms, but they have not been approved. A dispute over the extent of involvement Democratic party officers should maintain in coming primary elections was mentioned only in passing at the meeting. Asks Explanation Gordon McAleer of Kenosha asked for an interpretation of the opinion made by State Chairman Hanson of Mellen. Hanson reiterated his earlier statement that party officers, except the state chairman, should not back primary candidates of their choosing. Lt. Gov. Patrick J. Lucey bers of Japanese ancestry; and one Hawaiian. The current Hawaii Congressional delegation, however, is entirely oriental— three Japanese and one Chinese. A Detroit Negro Mrs. Barbara Simpson, wife of a serviceman stationed in Hawaii, summed up the islands' racial situation this way: "Hawaii isn't exactly the Utopia I expected, but it does give me great hope for the future solving of the racial problem. "Somehow, Hawaii has kept prejudice to a minimum." Says Autos Symbolize Good, Bad of Society HARTFORD, Conn. — iff) — The automobile has become "the symbol and the symptom" of much that is right — and wrong — in American society, says the head of a research center that is going to study the auto. Sterling T. Tooker, president of the center, says the research will include automobile safety features and the physiological, psychological, cultural and population-density factors in accidents. A crisis has developed, Tooker said, "because the exploding use of automobiles has exceeded our environment's adjustment to it." The Soviet Union covers almost one-sixth of the world's total land area. took issue with Hanson on the opinion at a Walworth County Democratic meeting at Lake Como last Thursday night. Lucey attended the administrative meeting although he is not a member of the committee. He did not speak. The committee accepted a report that said there were 25,537 members of the Wisconsin Democratic Party as of Friday. The next meeting will be Aug. 21 at Bailey's Harbor in Door County. Going in Easy, but Getting Out! PHILADELPHIA —iJP)— Burglars who stole $1,124 from a tavern had no trouble getting in, but almost didn't get out. Detectives said the thieves apparently hid in the tavern until it closed and then cleaned out the cash registers and a cash box. But they had to dismantle a door lock, a kind that must be opened with a key even from the inside, said the detectives.

Cubans Go to Canada to Send Gifts Home NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.— (JP) —New York-area Cubans, hindered by U.S. postal regulations in efforts to ship food, clothing and medicine to friends and relatives in Communist Cuba, have turned to Canada. The Cubans make an eight- hour drive from New York, cross the Rainbow Bridge into Niagara Falls and mail their packages, report postal authorities. U.S. postal rules, due to an American embargo, allow only medicine to be mailed to the Caribbean island. Flunking Pupils to Get Exams in N. Y. State ALBANY, N. Y. — (^)— Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller has signed a bill requiring special examination of school children who repeatedly fail their studies. The law requires school districts to examine each "under-achiever" to determine "the physical, mental or social causes of such failure." The object is to find if the child is incapable of benefiting from classroom instruction or should be assigned to special training. The shield has been used to make U.S. highway routes since 1926.
