Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph (Newspaper) - October 18, 1968, Colorado Springs, Colorado COLORADO SPRINGS The man who is aware of Ins inability to stand competition scorns “this mad competitive system.” He who ta unfit to serve his fellow citizens wants to rule them. —Ludwig von Mises GAZETTE TODAY’S 1:30 STOCKS No. 31.296—97th Year Both AP and UPI Dial 632-4641 COLORADO SPRINGS—FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1968 10c Daily 20c Sunday Four Sections— 40 PAGES Jacqueline Goes to Greece to Wed Billionaire By PHILIP DO POU LOS ATHENS (AP) — Jacqueline Kennedy arrived in Greece today to marry one of the world’s richest men, Aristotle Onassis, ending five years of speculation about the future of the glamorous presidential widow. A special Greek airliner brought the bride-to-be and her family to a military airport at Andravida, in southern Greece. As Mrs. Kennedy stepped from the plane and walked down the steps, she was greeted by Onassis. who had flown from Athens to take his bride on to Scorpios. the small scorpion-shaped island he owns south of Corfu. They will be married there Saturday “or within three days at the latest,” Onassis told newsmen in Athens. Onassis said they would spend their honeymoon on Scorpios “unless Jackie wants to make a tour of the Mediterranean with Christina,” his palatial yacht named for his 18-year-old daughter by his first marriage Airport police confiscated all cameras and locked newsmen in the airport’s waiting rooms about 300 yards away just be fore Mrs. Kennedy’s jet landed. The wedding will unite the 39-year-old widow of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, left a wealthy woman by him, and a shipping magnate 23 years her senior who is often dubbed the “Golden Greek ” Onassis. 62, was divorced in 1960 after 14 years of marriage to the former Tina Livanos, daughter of another multimillionaire Greek shipowner. They had two children, and she later married England's Marquis of Blandford, the Duke of Marlborough’s heir. Mrs. Kennedy’s plans to wed were announced Thursday in New York by her mother. Mrs. Hugh D Auchincloss, whose brief statement said:    “My daughter. Mrs John F. Kennedy, is planning to marry Mr. Aristotle Onassis ” It was issued after the Boston Herald-Traveler said the couple would marry. . A few hours after the announcement. Mrs Kennedy, her two children. Caroline. IO, and John Jr., 7. and a party of eight bumped 90 passengers from an Olympic Airways jetliner and took off from New York's Ken nedy Airport for Greece. Onassis owns the airline. The party included Mrs. Auchincloss and her husband, two of President Kennedy’s sisters, and Mrs. Stephen Smith and Mrs. Peter Lawford: Mrs. Law-ford’s daughter; a Secret Service agent, and two maids. A spokesman for the airline said the plane’s 90 passengers were put on a plane that left three hours later. Onassis’ sister, Mrs. D. Garo-foulis, told newsmen in Athens the wedding would take place on Scorpios, the shipping magnate’s private island in the Ionian Sea next week. Onassis bought the small isle six years ago and has kept it ultraprivatc Because the wedding will be in Greece. Greek law requires a Greek Orthodox ceremony. It seemed most unlikely that there would be a companion ceremony in Mrs. Kennedy's Bornan Catholic faith because Onassis is divorced and the church prohibits such a marriage unless it finds his first union invalid Onassis is a member of the national church of Greece. which approved his divorce by (Turn to Page 6A, Column 1) Saigon Still Balks On Bombing Halt By GEORGE ESPER SAIGON (API - U.S. fighter-bombers    streaked    through I heavy monsoon clouds again today to continue their daily bombing of North Vietnam while the Saigon government continued to balk at agreeing to a bombing halt. North Vietnam's leaders in Hanoi were reported studying a new U S proposal for cessation of all bombing of the North in return for serious moves toward peace by the Communists But South Vietnam’s premier. Tran Van Huong, said his government could accept no such proposal unless it was favorable to South Vietnam Huong told the official Vietnam press any agreement by Saigon would have to be approved by the National Assembly as well as the executive branch. Top political figures including the leaders of the House and Senate have discussed the plan and are understood to be cool toward it. US Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker met with President Nguyen Van Thieu again Thursday night to discuss the proposal, but so far the Vietnam government has not agreed to go along With the military men it was business as usual although some said the} felt an eventual bombing halt now appeared inevitable More air strikes over North Vietnam’s panhandle were planned for Saturday. Air Force, Navy and Marine jets today kept up their steady attack on enemy supply channels, south of the 19th parallel. Reports on the raids won’t be available until Saturday. U.S. pilots reported destroying or damaging at least 18 supply boats Thursday in bad weather that made it difficult to determine results. U.S. military sources said the American pilots are concentrating more on the waterways be cause there is less truck traffic moving south. “There is a hell of a lot less truck traffic because of the interdiction campaign and because of the monsoons which have made some roads impassable. ” one source said “There are more barges now. We'll be hitting these more and more.” Australia’s small air contingent reported its biggest kill of the war so far. 40 Viet Cong killed by a Canberra jet bomber near Pleiku. in the central highlands. A spokesman said the bomber attacked an enemy troop concentration Wednesday night. The pilot reported “a large secondary explosion," and an observation pilot counted the bodies the next day. the spokesman said The lull in ground fighting continued. In its morning communique the U. S. Command again said there was no contact with the enemy Thursday.

Its winds had dropped from 80 to 75 miles an hour but it was still expected to bring five-foot tides to a thinly populated area near the mouth of the Suwannee River between Tampa and Cedar Key 90 miles to the northwest. The Weather Bureau had forecast earlier that it would turn toward the Tampa Bay arca and its more than a million residents but said later that it would hit further north Rains of four inches or more were predicted for Central and Northeast Florida and hurricane warnings were displayed from Sarasota to Clearwater.

That’s what the Boy Scouts of America says is in store for 1969. And both the boys and girls seem to think it’s a fine idea. The group’s executive board announced Thursday, after a unanimous vote, that starting next Jan. I, the Boy Scouts will “be prepared” to admit girls to the Explorer program for boys 14 to 18. “We have known all along that boys were interested in girls,” said a spokesman for the 58-year-old organization ^iich has almost 4 5 million members, including more than 300,000 Explorers. “Now, it’s an acknowledged fact,” he added. A spot survey showed most Explorer Scouts liked the plan “It’s a good idea," said Terry Ruch, 17, of West Chicago, 111. “A bunch of dizzy dames balance” things, he said, and would provide an opportunity for different types of programs. Bill Watson, 16, of Dallas, who’s been an Explorer for one year, said, “Girls could possibly fit in lf the program were carefully planned... I think it might be very interesting.” Mark Ohanian, 15, of bur bank. Calif , said, “When you get to a certain age... you don’t have much time for scouting and dates too. This will take care of both.” The plan won approval on the distaff side also. Deann Sullivan, 16, of Portland. Ore., said “it sounds like more fun” than the Girl Scouts. And Linda Walters. 15, of Northridge, Calif., who dropped out of scouting a year ago, said, “This could change my mind ’” There were some dissenters, however.
