GODDARD called for a farsighted effort to reshape the state's constitution, tax structure and legislative districts as he was sworn in yesterday as the 12th governor of Arizona. "This administration must be ... a long-look-ahead administration," said Goddard, Inaugural Ball Pictures, Page 17 after taking the oath of office from Arizona Chief Justice Jesse Udall before a crowd of 3,000 on the sunny statehouse mall. Goddard said the astronomers of Kitt Peak Observatory on the Papago Indian Reservation were dubbed "the men with long eyes" by the Indians. He said Arizona needs such men to tackle the problems of water, agriculture, education and business development as well as legislative, constitutional and tax revision. Th&�hcw governor was interrupted three times by applause, the loudest when he promised to act always in good faith. Most who heard hira liugered to shake his hand in a three-hour-long reception line of top state officials in the statehouse rotunda. There he was presented by Sun City residents with a handcrafted mosaic depicting his political campaign symbol, a roadrunner. Goddard was flanked in the reception line by Gov.

Operation Big Switeh Job Changes Galore at SUfte Capitol By DON BOLLES IT WAS operation Job Switch at the state Capitol yesterday. New officials took up duties in the governor's office, corporation and tax commissions, department of public instruction, and attorney general and treasurer's offices. As a result there was a major turnover in personnel. The major developments: SEVEN dismissed employes of the Corporation Commission were rehired, 16 present employes were fired, 3 resigned and 11 new employes were hired. Top among them was George Livermore, 29, a Phoenix lawyer, who becomes executive secretary at $10,200 a year. The treasurer's office was in a turmoil most of the day as seven veteran employes who had be^'^told they would be dismissed were hired by the Corporation Conunission. THE TAX Commission switched to Republican control for the first time in history. All but two employes were kept on the job for the time being. A new executive secretary was picked unanimously, but his name was withheld until he could be contacted. Several of the public instruction employes switched to the office of Democratic Gov, Goddard as Mrs. Sarah Fol-som, a Republican, replaced Democrat W. W. Dick as superintendent of public instruction. Mrs. Folsom named several top aides, and postponed a scheduled meeting of the state board of education until tomorrow. SOME OF the staff of outgoing Gov. Fannin was picked Eliot^ '^Lost Generation/'Poet, Dies at 16 in Land He Adopted LONDON (AP) - T.S. Eliot, American-born poet, playwright and a voice of the "lost generation" of the 1920s, died here last night. He was 76. Born in St. Louis, of a family that had been New England-ers since the 17th Century, Eliot spent most of his adult life in Britain and became a British subject in 1927. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1948. The influence of Eliot began with publication in 1917 of his poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." Perhaps his most significant contribution came five years later in the lengthy poem, "The Waste Land." "THE WASTE LAND" was full of esoteric references and passages in other languages and quotations, unidentified, from works as old as Christopher Marlowe's "Tamburlane." Eliot added seven pages of footnotes to explain his own references. His contempt for many of society's values, a feeling that________ made him especially influential, I helped was notably brought out in hiSimind 1925 poem, "The Hollow Men." Its subtitle was "A Penny for the Old Guy," and it spoke of, "The Hollow Men, the Stuffed Men." The poem ended with lines whose impact grew during subsequent decades of war and terror: This is the way tlie world ends. s up in other Republican - controlled offices. Others were job hunting. John McGowan, chief Fannin aide, returned to the attorney general's office where he served in the early 1950s. Darrell Smith, taking over as attorney general from fellow Republican Robert Pick-rell, retained Pickrell's staff except for two who resigned. In other state offices where incumbents were re-elected- secretary of state, auditor, mine inspector - it was just another work day.

THE CORPORATION Commission shakeup came first, at an 8:30 a.m. public meeting of new commissioners Milton Husky and Richard Herbert, and holdover E. T. (Eddie) Williams, all Democrats. Husky first was named chairman. Williams got seven of his people, who were fired Oct. 1, back on the job. They were Mrs. Josephine Rivera, W.

Welfare Workers Fired for Walking Out NEW YORK (UPI)-Thousands of city welfare employes, white collar workers who hand out nearly $40 million a month to New York's needy, defied a court order yesterday and went on strike for higher pay. Welfare commissioner James R. Dumpson ordered the names of the strikers sent to the city comptroller to be taken off the payroll. "Does this mean they are fired?" he was asked. "Yes," Dumpson replied. He acted under a state law which prohibits public employes from walking off their jobs in a contract dispute. A department spokesman said that although the employes are technically fired they usually are rehired when a dispute is settled. However, the spokesman said the strikers probably will lose three days' pay for each day they are off the job. As pickets ringed the department offices and centers throughout the city late yesterday, someone cut 36 telephone wires at the Bronx welfare cen-jority since the 1930s, ter. Long, Ford Elected to Key Posts WASHINGTON (UPI) - The heavily Democratic 89th Cong-gress swung into action yesterday by putting two new men in leadership posts and liberal-izmg House rules to help President Johnson's legislative program. The two big leadership battles were resolved quickly, before the House and Senate convened at noon, nine hours before Johnson's State of the Union address. On the Republican side, veteran House leader Charles A. Halleck of Indiana was ousted m favor of Rep. Gerald A. Ford of Michigan. The vote was 73 to 67. SENATE Democrats, taking two ballots, chose Sen. Russell B. Long of Lousiana to be party whip, the No. 2 Democrat in the chamber behind Mike Mansfield of Montana. Long replaces Vice President-elect Hubert H. Humphrey. More important for the future of Johnson's "Great Society" proposals, the House acted in the afternoon to liberalize its rules, as the topheavy Democratic majority had voted to do last Saturday. The Democrats this year have their biggest congressional ma Talk Outlines Reform Plans By TOM WICKER New York Times Service WASHINGTON - President Johnson outlined yesterday a sweeping program to move the nation "toward the Great Society." He also disclosed his plans to visit Europe and Latin America this year. In his second State of the Union address, Johnson also expressed his hopes that the new leaders of the Soviet Union might visit the United States, and that they and American leaders could exchange television appearances in their respective countries. Government sources said diplomatic approaches to the Soviet leaders had been go-,- ing forward for some time and LBJ Invites Soviet Chiefs To Tmt U.S. By MICHAEL PADEV Republic Foreign Editor WASHINGTON - President Johnson has invited the new leaders of the Soviet government to visit the United States that the Soviet government had Johnson text, Page 10. been informed yesterday of what Johnson would say in his message. The President spoke from the rostrum of the House of Representatives cliamber, nine hours after it convened at noon He was breaking precedent by making his speech in prime evenbig television time, and by delivering a State of the Union address on the first day of the session. Government sources said Johnson would further break with tradition by sending five special messages to Congress before his inauguration on Jan. 20. The first, concerning health, will go to Capitol Hill Thursday; the other four will cover education, immigration, for- ; elgn aid and the National Aeronautics and Space Ad-mmistration. On the pressing question of the war in South Vietnam, Johnson was guarded, but his remarks suggested no change in the present policy of supporting tile South Vietnamese military operations against the Communist Vietcong insurgents, while continuing the search for a stable South Vietnamese government. The United States, the President said, was attempting to assist a friendly nation against Communist aggression as well as to protect its own security by achieving peace in Southeast Asia. Such a peace, he said, "will come only when aggressors leave their neighbors in peace." BUT IT was upon a domestic soon. This is the single most important fact which emerged from the foreign policy part of the State of the Union speech which the chief executive made before Congress last night. JOHNSON did not actually say that he has invited the Soviet leaders to come to the U n i t e d News Analysis States. But there can be no other interpretation of the following sentence of his speech: "I hope the new Soviet leaders can visit Amejica so they can learn about this country at first hand." This is the diplomatic formula with which such liigh ranking and most important state visits are announced. First, the "hope" is expressed by the host country that such a visit can be arranged (in this case, Johnson's State of the Union speech reference.) Second, a few days or perhaps a few weeks will be allowed for American and free world public opinion to comment on the projected visit.
