House to Act on Bridge, Tax Bills By AL SANDNER Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) The House prepared today to take further action on two politically explo- sive issues that failed to explode Bridge re- financing and a graduated state income tax. The Democrat-favored gradu- ated income tax resolution was moved into position for a final vote without a rumble. A "back-room" agreement on the Mackinac Bridge apparently pulled the fuse on that issue, and the measure is in position for a preliminary vote The House also approved with- out comment the presidential succession amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

It passed 81-15. Three of the dissenting votes were cast by Democrats. Reps. Einar Erlandsen, D-Es- canaba, and Joseph Swallow, R-Alpena, had introduced virtu- ally identical bills to refinance the million in bonds still outstanding on the million bridge and reduce the one- way passenger car toll. Erlandsen's bill, however, would have placed the bridge in a separate division of the High- way Department. A committee amendment to strike language making the division directly re- sponsible to the department di- rector "would continue the pres- ent Mackinac Bridge authority in the state a year in duplication of Swallow argued. Swallow called the separate- division proposal "a political pork designed to pre- serve Upper Peninsula jobs by keeping the authority hi exist- ence. Rep. Dominic Jacobetti, D- Negaunee, and one of the chief backers of the Erlandsen bill, said about 37 addition to about seven administrative level for the war ag- in- leged aerial intrusion "a plan- ned and premeditated action, part of the U.S. imperialists' ef- forts to expand their gression in Asia."

The amendment, sponsored jointly by Erlandsen, Swallow, Jacobetti, and William Cope- land, D-Dearborn, was to be of- fered today. Erlandsen was reluctant to say when tolls might be re- duced. Under normal legal re- quirements, he said, the state would have to start the recla- ation of present revenue bonds before it could reduce the charg- es. And before it could do that, it million to bring the sinking fund backing the revenue bonds up to about million, he added. "Then again, the bonding i torneys representing bond hold- ers may take cognizance of the fact that the full faith and credit is backing these bonds once this bill is passed and might give us a go-ahead ahead of he said. Even with unanimous House approval, however, the bill ap- parently faces a serious road- block in the Senate. There was no apparent indication that a general mood of opposition hi the upper chamber has changed. The graduated income tax res- olution calls for putting the question of amending the State Constitution, which prohibits afl but a flatfate tax, before the voters next year. The resolution needs two- thirds approval in each house- meaning that Republican votes are needed. "And the Republican votes are not there that I can said Rep. Russell Strange, R- Clare, assistant GOP caucus leader. Boy Is Freed From Vise-Like Trap in Cave Exhausted Youth Token to Hospital MEDINA, Ohio (AP) A year-old boy was inched free to- day from the vise like trap where he was pinned 24 hours in a cave once used to hide fugi- tive slaves. He was taken from the cave to a hospital. The 110 pound boy, Morris Baetzhold, looked exhausted when he was carried ou stretcher from the cave at l 28 p.m. EOT. Rescuers who had struggled through the night to free him fin- ally managed to get a strap around his slender body and slowly lift bun inch by inch out of the slanted sandstone passage- way where he had been pinned face down. Morris was taken immediate- ly to a hospital from the cave where he was caught about 11 a.m. Tuesday while on an outing with youngsters from the chil dren's home where he lives. He had not eaten since he was trapped. Neither had he been able to sleep much in the cramped con- fines of the foot-wide tunnel. RP cue workers had been with bun almost constantly, trying to tug him loose or just cheering him t up. Throughout the ordeal, Morris was reported in good condition and calm. The boy was with 15 compan- ions who wound up at Whipps Ledges because of a flat The group, all from the dren's home, were en route to a historical site hi New Phila- delphia, Ohio, when bus had a flat on U.S. 21. Because of the time lost, three teachers with the boys decided to take the boys to Whipps Ledg- es to eat their packed lunches.

Luna 7 was launched Monday. This was the first official word of when it is expected to reach the moon. There has been no announce- ment on the purpose of the flight, the third moon shot made by the Soviet Union this year. But it was believed to be an at- tempt to make a soft landing on the moon. It is estimated a soft moon landing would put the Soviet Un- ion sue months ahead of the United States in the race to land a man on the moon. Humphrey Has Authority to Take Action White House Staff, Cabinet Alerted By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Johnson is leaving in what he regards as the tried and trusted hands of Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey any emer- gency decisions that might arise during and just after his gall bladder operation Friday. Few Americans, including the present President, are able to envision any critical action that might have to be taken while Johnson is under anesthesia or otherwise incapacitated by the projected operation. Johnson himself said: "The doctors expect there will be minimal time during which I will not be conducting business as usual." But there is always the nu- clear weapon to be considered. However remote the possibility of its use, no chief executive can disregard the mandate that presidential action is necessary to flick its firing mechanism. A 15-minute warning would be the maximum if an enemy set off his missiles at the United States, and Johnson is likely to be under sedation much longer than that. It was for this reason, if for no other, that the President said that although he did not antici- pate the need for any instant presidential decision or action, he had instructed the Cabinet and the White House staff to keep in constant contact with Humphrey. Including the vice president Johnson said that the men around him have been "party to and have participated in all ma- jor political decisions. They are fully and currently informed." On his part, Humphrey said the President had discussed the! situation fully with him and he and the Cabinet "are clear as to the procedures to be followed during his short absence if the necessity arises." Humphrey's role already had been set out in an agreement which covered any lasting disa- bility of the President. It was similar hi it terms to agree- ments reached between former President Dwight D. Eisen- hower and former Vice Presi- dent Richard M. Nixon. The same phraseology had been agreed to verbally by the late President John F. Kennedy and Johnson. It was renewed be- tween Johnson and Humphrey. What stands out in the rela- tionship of Johnson and Hum- phrey, however, is the kind of confidence the head man has in his stand-in. This was less dis- cernible in Eisenhower's rela- tionship with Nixon. And it was absent in Franklin D. Roose- velt's consideration of Harry S.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Three US Air Force planes were shot down Tuesday over North Viet Nam and the four men aboard are listed as missing, a U.S. military spokes- man said today. He said the downed planes were an F4C Phantom, with a two-man crew, and two F105 Thunderchiefs. Two parachutes were observed from the Phan- tom but a search produced no trace of the airmen, the spokes- man said. One parachute was from the Thunderchiefs.

E. Juhl, president of the Lake Superior District Power Company. The engineering and design of the various systems has been in progress for more than a year. The consulting firm of Henn- ingson, Durban and Richardson of Omaha, Nebraska was en gaged by the Power Company early in January of 1964 to hand- le this portion of the project, and its engineers and field men have been busy for the past 18 months preparing the detailed plans from which the contrac- tors obtain their for bidding and building the sys terns. Although natural gas service will not be available to any of the towns in this area until a- about July 1, 1966, Modern Constructors started work on Sept. 27 in order that some of the heavy piping may be laid in the ground before the freeze-up. Fust plans were that no pipe would be installed untfl next but inasmuch as the ications were ready and steel pipe was immediately available it was deemed advis- able to start as soon as possible.

He described the an- tiaircraft fire as heavy. The Phantom was lost on a nine-plane strike on the Lang Hep ammunition depot 40 miles northeast of Hanoi, the spokes- man said. Ten other Phantoms scheduled for the same target were diverted to fly rescue cover after the plane went down. The Thunderchiefs were part of a 20-plane raid on Lang Met bndge, 45 miles northeast of Hanoi. Heavy flak was observed over the area, the spokesman said. Radio Hanoi claimed Tuesday its gunners had shot down 10 U'.S. planes. Hanoi declared last week that U.S. pilots shot down in North Viet Nam would be treated as war criminals and face trials. In the ground war, a U.S mili- tary spokesman said the Vietna- mese army claimed its forces killed 260 Viet Cong this week in major operations in the central highlands and the Meking Delta The casualty claims were not confirmed by U.S. body counts. The Vietnamese claimed 220 guerrillas dead following heavy fighting Monday during a gov- ernment sweep in the southern- Operation Set For Friday at Naval Hospital Physicians Do Not Expect Difficulty By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Johnson is facing surgery Friday for removal of his gall bladder, then 10 to 14 days in the hospital and several weeks more on a reduced schedule The President, 57, a rather forlorn looking man seated all alone at the huge, octagonal table hi the White House Cabi- net Room, announced the forth- coming operation to newsmen Tuesday night at the close of a day of suspense. The physician who will per- form the operation, Dr. George A. Hallenbeck of the Mayo Clin- ic at Rochester, Minn., said it will be major surgery but "the risk to a normal person of the President's age is very low in- deed." And the man who handled Johnson's severe heart attack in 1955, Dr. J.

The osteopathic college bill had been approved Tuesday by the State Appropriations and Corporations committees with an eye toward expediting con- struction and operation of an osteopathic college proposed for Pope Might Go To Poland Next By GERALD MILLER VATICAN CITY (AP) The impact of Pope Paul's visit to the United Nations strengthened a growing impression here to- day that his next foreign trip will take him into the Commu- nist world. The handshake and animated conversation with Soviet the pontiff had Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko at the Unit- ed Nations has added to this impression. Poland appeared the Red country most likely to receive the Pope When he returned from New most province of An Xuyen They said another 40 Viet Cong were killed and 28 cap- tured in an action in Binh Dmh Province. Light government losses were reported The operation in Binh Dinh, 305 miles northeast of Saigon, reopened a portion of strategic Highway No. 1 which the Com- munists had cut, the spokesman said U S. authorities said Viet Cong, 229 government troops and 17 Americans were killed in action last week Air strikes accounted for most of the Viet Cong losses. Vietnamese offi- cials Tuesday put the Viet Cong dead for the week at But this included an estimate of 700 enemy dead in heavy fighting near the Phu Cu Pass, in Binh Dinh Province The Communists struck in Pontiac. In his letter to Robinson, Kelley traced much of the de- bate concerning article 8, sec- tion 3, of the Michigan Constitu- tion, which sets forth these du- ties of the State Board of Edu- cation: "Leadership and general su- pervision over all public educa- tion, including adult higher education and instructional pro- grams in state institutions, ex- cept as to institutions of higher education granting baccalaure- ate degrees, is vested in the State Board of Education. It shall serve as the general plan- ning and coordinating body for all public education, including higher education, and shall ad- vise the Legislature as to the financial requirements in con- nection therewith." Kelley wrote the Constitution- al history of this provision "in- dicated most clearly that the framers intended to repose in the State Board of Education the broad authority to generally all Johnson will check in at the i.

And he sounded assurances that should presidential action or decision be needed and he was unable to provide them, standing arrangements are in effect for Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey to act hi his place. Johnson met with Humphrey and the Cabinet just before he read his announcement to news- men. He said he had discussed his case also with congressional leaders and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He had gone through a flurry of appointments, with newsmen and photographers called in to observe part of the process. But the White House press corps had had advance indications of something more momentous something whose nature was a carefully guarded secret to the last moment. The moment came after the Cabinet had left. A trace of a smile flitted across Johnson's face when cameramen and newsmen start- ed piling into ihe Cabinet room. He began reading his statement rapidly, as if he were anxious to gt it over with mid-summer of 1966, Juhl said. Furnaces can then be easily converted to gas before the 1966- 67 heating season. The first "ar- loads of pipe arrived on Sept 24 and it is expected that a of some 25 to 30 men will be engaged on the project. Juhl stated that even though Ashland and Ironwood have pre- viously had gas service and the old mains are still in the ground, none of them will be re used. He explained further, that the old gas mains were built for low pressure distribution and would not be suitable for the modern methods of distributing natural gas under higher pres, sures.
