    School Lunch Program Involves
Much Preparation, Lots Of Food
Did you know that for a holiday seven' substitutes. Most of the em-
lunch in the Roseburg schools
total of 50 turkeys (1,250 pounds)
is consumed by youngsters.
This is indication enough that
school lunches in the Roseburg sys
tem involves a major production
and a lot o food every day.
Next week, that program will be
recognized during National School
Lunch Week, Oct. 13-19.
The theme of the week is "School
Lunch Serves the Nation Through
Food for Learning."
In Roseburg, a total 2,937 lunch
es are served in the lunch rooms
of the schools. In addition, 947
youngsters take part in the special
milk program daily. Handling this
food are 34 cooks and helpers and
Baker's Dealings
Build Political
Fires In Senate
resignation of Senate Democratic
Secretary Robert G. (Bobby)
Baker eased political pressures
and potential senatorial embar
rassment today.
But there was no certainty that
the political fire his outside busi
ness deals built in the senate
cloakroom had been entirely
Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del.,
who had launched a one-man in
quiry into Baker's financial in-'
terests in a food vending firm
serving government contractors,
would not say whether he would
drop his investigation.
The FBI also is investigating
the vending firm with which Baker
had ties. Sources said the inquiry
had been expanded.
Gave Up Job
Baker gave up a $19,600 job,
but his wife, Dorothy, who is on
the Senate internal security sub
committee stall at 511,800 a year,
apparently was remaining. Both
are listed as principals in the
controversial vending firm.
ine Baker affair, said one
ranking Republican, was almost
certain to be discussed at today's
senate GOP policy lunch meet
ing. But he indicated that if the
GOP made any public follow-up
move, it would not be likely to
come for several days.
Republican and Democratic
senators alike . were frankly con
cerned that publicity about the
former page boy's interests in the
food vending, motel and insur
ance fields might prove embar
rassing to the Senate.
Senate Democratic Leader
Mike Mansfield, Mont., who an
nounced Baker's resignation, said
"his great ability and his dedK
cation to the majority and to' the
Senate will be missed." Mans
field voiced his deep regret, at
losing Baker. 1
Suffered A Loss
Politically, no one on either
side of the aisle doubted that the
Democrats had suffered a real
working loss.
Baker, who started as a Sen
ate page at 14 and became ma
jority secretary at 28, kept the
Senate Democratic voting ' ma
chinery oiled and ready to go.
He reached his peak under the
tutelage of Vice President Lyn
don B. Johnson when the Texan
was Democratic whip and then
majority leader.
A native of Pickens,' S.C., the
35-year-old Baker provided a
working "bridge" between Senate
Northern liberals and Southern
conservatives. His primary job
was to keep tab on votes, the
whereabouts and needs of Demo
cratic senators. In actual prac
tice, he was often a key adviser
on legislative strategy for the
Mansfield named Francis R.
Valeo, his own 47-year-old leader
ship assistant, to fill Baker's
place for the time being.

There are three basic require
ments for school participation in
the school lunch program. They
are (1) that the lunch room be op
erated on a non-profit basis, (2)
that free or reduced-price lunches
be provided for children unable to
pay full price; and (3) that lunches
meet a basic standard.
That standard calls for provision
of at least one-third minimum daily
food requirements of the basic food
for good health.
Menus are made up a month: at
a time, so better variety of menus
can be introduced. This also al
lows maximum use of donated com
modities and helps control food
The lunches are offered at a min
imum price, so they will be in the
price range of almost any family.
Elementary pupils pay 25 cents;
junior high pupils 30 cents; and
adults 40 cents. The government
pays 4 cents a pint for milk and
free lunches are provided for chil
dren unable to pay. No govern
ment reimbursement is made on
adult lunches.'
The lunches go to all schools in
the district, except the high school,
where no facilities are available.
Food is transported to Melrose,

Fiery Mme. Nhu
Arrives In U.S.
Continuing picture coverage.
Ngo Dinh Nhu, brimming with
confidence but slightly concilia
tory, arrived Monday night for a
three-week visit to the United
States with hopes of improving
her own image and that of the
South Viet Nam government.
Mme. Nhu, whose sharp criti
cisms of U.S. policies, officials
and newsmen in her country
have helped make her controver
sial, said she came here "to sec
you and to try to understand why
we can't get along better."
"I feel this deeply, and I hope
at the end of my stay that 1 may
know," she said.
There was some strong congres
sional opposition lo Mme. Nhu's
Sen. Stephen M. Young, D-Ohio,
told the Senate that her visa
should be cancelled and "she
should be compelled to leave the
"Let her slander us from, her
native land or any other country,
but not from our own soil,"
Young said..
Rep. Silvio O. Conte, It-Mass.,
called her "a thorn in the fight
for democracy around the world.
He denounced her as an "irres
ponsible, arrogant woman" who
has made statements that arc
"viciously anti-American."
The sister-in-law of South Viet
Nam President Ngo Dinh Diem
addressed a crowd of about 100
newsmen and photographers at
Idlewild Airport after leaving the
jetliner she and her pretty daugh
ter, Lc Thuy, 10, took from Paris.
Speaking in English, Mme. Nhu
said that because she was a "con
troversial person" she did not in
tend to seek meetings with Presi
dent Kennedy or other high-
ranking government officials dur
ing her coast-to-coast tour.
. She also denied that she was
"power hungry," and said

fought for life. ,
The suspected killer was type

whitefish bought at a Kroger Co.
supermarket in West Knoxville
and packed by Dornbos Bros.

The others in the hospital had
eaten the same type of smoked
fish from the same store. Ru

family had eaten the fish.
Several others reported to
Knoxville hospitals for observa

product removed from its 1,375
stores in 22 Southern and Mid

shut down while Michigan Agri
