There has been a "terrific re

Gov. Mark Hatfield and his
staff arc expected to be friend

said he does not expect the

comment on the fact that Mrs.
Rockefeller is expecting a child

"I'm a firm believer that the
people of the country are so
close to their own real prob

The fundamental things the
country stands for will be de

PLEASANT DREAMS High school student Randy Gard

Sleepy Student Struggles
For New 'Awake' Record
SAN DIEGO, Calif. UPI) -Stay
awake for 130 hours, and
you lose your sense of humor
and appetite, but you may be
able to dream while awake.
These are conclusions reached
by Randy Gardner, 17, a Point
Loma high school student, who
Thursday reached the halfway
mark in trying to break a world
record for staying awake 2H0
Two other students are work
ing with Gardner and plan to
submit a report on his reactions
at certain times in his total
awake period. The report will
go to the Greater San Diego
Science Fair later this year.
Glenn Faces Long Waif
For Marine Promotion
less the Marine Corps relaxes
ils cuslom, astronaut John II.
Glenn Jr., of New Concord,
Ohio, may have to wail another
three years for promotion to
full colonel.
But the Army - Navy - Air
Force Journal, an independent
publication for the armed serv
ices, has triggered a movement
tlKit may get him the promotion
a little sooner.
In the tradition of the service
a Marine Isn't supposed to
hanker after promotion too
much because it's enough to be
a Marine. No complaint has yet
been heard from Glenn who is
now a lieutenant colonel.
The journal notes, however,
that the Army, Navy and Air
Force all have officers in the
rank of colonel or its equival
ent who arc junior to Glenn in
both uge and length of service.
If no exception is made, the
journal said, "Glenn will have
lo wait nt least three more
years than contemporaries in
other services for promotion."
Glenn became eligible for
colonel on a "below the line"
basis early in l!;t. "Below the
line" or "below the zone" in
the services means that an offi
cer can be promoted but is not
actually in line for it. The Ma
rine Corps rarely reaches below
the line.
There were some initial
thoughts in 1963 that the Ma
rines might do so in the case

Allies Will Draft Strategy
For Disarmament Meeting
LONDON (UPf)-British and
American disarmament leaders
will meet in Washington next
week to draft joint strategy for
the forthcoming 17 nation con

sources said today.
The talks, designed to bring
allied proposals up to date, will
be joined by Italian and Cana-
Rusk Denies
Cuba Claim
of State Dean Rusk says
that Cuban Premier Fidel Cas
tro was "emphatically wrong"
when he declared that the late
President Kennedy had been
contemplating a change in U.S.
policy toward Cuba.
Rusk told a news conference
Thursday that there could be
no change in the United States'
Cuba policy so long as the So
viet military presence remained
and Castro continued to meddle
in the affairs of his neighbors.
The secretary said he had
found no evidence that Castro
was willing to disavow the Rus
sian penetration of the island
nation or to promise to slop try
ing to subvert other Latin
American governments.
Cuba was among the danger
points listed by Rusk. . Others
included Cyprus, where the
Greek and Turkish communi
ties are again at militant odds;
Yemen, where the United Arab
Republic and Saudi Arabia sup
port different sides in the over
throw of the royal government:
Algeria and Morocco; India and
Pakistan; Indonesia and Malay
sia, and Somalia and its neigh
bors, Ethiopia and Kenya.
Sales Tax
slitutional amendment to en
able Oregon to establish a sales
tax was proposed Thursday by
Norman L. Easley, of Portland,
chairman of tlie Income and
Property Tax Relief Committee.
The proposed amendment
would authorize a sales tax of
up to 4 per cent and provides
that between BO and 75 per cent
of the revenue would be used
to reduce income and property
The lax would exclude fond
sold in grocery stores or mar
kets and drugs.
Tied to the sales tux plan is
a restriction thai present in
come tax rates cannot be In
creased nor deductions or ex
emptions altered unless such
changes would result in a sav
ing to the taxpayer.
Court Order Sought To Block

that city officials "have been
quite diligent in seeing that the
Mummers parade is conducted
in a manner that is in no way
offensive to our city."

Paul VI today devoted himself
to prayer and preparations for
his "journey of search and

day. The 66-ycar-old pontiff, who
began his reign little more than
six months ago, will be making
history in many ways on his
three-day pilgrimage to the
places Christ lived, in what is
now Jordan and Israel.
He will be the first Pope to
visit the Holy Land and the first
to fly. He will be the first to
leave Italy since 1812.
But since the Pope announced
plans for the visit last month,
world attention has focused on
another first the first meeting

For Dodge
Thyrc Dodge, a recreation
technician of the Klamath Rang
er District, Winema National
Forest, has received a $50 award
for a beneficial suggestion which
has improved work methods in
the administration of the na
tional forest. District Ranger
Bud Twombly reported Friday.
Dodge, 49, suggested that an
information check list be put in
use to provide faster and more
consistent administration f o r
people holding recreation resi
dence permits throughout Re
gion Six of the U.S. Forest Serv
ice. The award was made avail
able through protection and
maintenance funds of the dis
trict and was issued under auth
orization of the Federal Civil
Service Beneficial Suggestion
Program, which authorizes cash
awards from $15 to $2,500 in
recognition of accepted benefi
cial suggestions made by civil
service employes.
Dodge was born in Big Tim
ber, Mont., and graduated from
the Southern Oregon College of
Education, after which he taught
school in Ihe Ashland-Medford
area from 1345 through IWiO.
In the later year he went to
work for the Winema Forest,
where he is currently employed.
He said earlier Thursday that
he and his colleagues "prayed
for snow on New Year's and
we got it."
He said the suit filed by Mc
Bride on behalf of the repre
sentatives of Catholic, Protest
ant and Jewish groups was dif
ferent from the NAACP's ac
tion which sought to "enjoin
the comics."
"We are seeking to enjoin
the comics and those who
