"Would they perhaps like the Church to return to its in- Pope Paul ashed in his weekly general audience at the papal summer residence. At two other general audi- ences in the past month, Pope Paul also spoke of the council and called for Church discipline. His speeches reflected growing concera about the council as the time approached for the fourth and final session of the assem- bly of Roman Catholic prelates from around the world. The ses- sion opens Sept 14. He told the audience of sever- al thousand persons the spiritu- ality of the council was not matched by "the behavior of those who, taking as an excuse the problems it raises and the discussion it generates, arouse in themselves and in others a spirit of uncertainty and of radi- cal reform, both in the doctrinal and disciplinary field, as if the council were the place to ques- tion dogmas and laws." On July 7, he urged Roman Catholics not to mistake rhurch's renewal as a relaxa- tion of traditional moral teach- ings. A week later he said Church authority was sometimes disobeyed simply for the sake of challenge. There has been some criticism of the council among Roman Catholics, with complaints both that it has pushed renewal too far, and not far enough. (AP) Five U.S. Air Force fighter-bombers were lost on the strikes Tuesday against two North Vietnamese antiaircraft missile sites about 40 miles northwest of Hanoi, U.S. mili- tary spokesmen announced to- day. The spokesmen said three of the F105 jets were shot down by convention ground fire and two others crashed after col- liding near their home base as they returned from the strikes. Two of the pilots whose planes were shot down were presumed to have been killed or captured, an announcement said, while the third was rescued. The pilots of the two planes which collided were presumed to have been killed, the an- nouncement saicf. Radio Hanoi claimed that North Vietnamese gunners shot down six U.S. planes Tuesday and said three American pilots were captured. A U.S. military spokesman re- ported that another F105 Thun- dcrchief was shot down Tues- day on a strike against the Cam Doi barracks 30 miles west- northeest of Hanoi. The spokes- man said no parachute was ob- served and the pilot was pre- sumed killed. The Pentagon announced Tues- day that 46 F105 Thunderchiefs made a low-level attack on the missile sites. The Pentagon said pilots reported one site de- stroyed and the other damaged. It was the first attack reported against missile sites which the Soviet Union is presumed to torn jet was downed in a raid near Hanoi Saturday, and the Defense Department said there were indications it was hit by un antiaircraft missile. In the only strike reported to- day against North Viet Nam, eight FlOSs and four F4C Pahn- toms struck the Dien Bien Phu barracks 180 miles northwest of Hanoi, spokesmen said. Pilots reported 12 buildings were destroyed and seven oth- ers damaged. A U.S. military spokesman re- ported that 12 Americans were killed in action in Viet Nam and 70 others were wounded during the week that ended July 24. He said three more American serv- icemen were captured or missing during the period. Florida Cat Hooked on Brake Fluid MIAMI, Fla. UPi Peter the cat is hooked on brake fluid.

Schedule of Pages Lcjte World 9, 10 Sports----M SS Aid Bill Gets Final Senate OK By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (APt The Senate passed and sent lo Presi- dent Johnson today the Social Security-health care bill estab- lishing broad health protection as a matter of right for all Americans over Go. Its final passage climaxes a fight that began in 1935, with the writing of the original law, to include health care for the el- derly benefits under Social Sec- urity. The House passed Tuesday, 307 to 116, the compromise ver- sion of legislation embodying the greatest single expansion of Social Security ever voted. The health-care portion ends a gen- eration of effort in Congress to write such a provision into the Social Security System. The Senate took up the meas- ure Tuesday but held up the ii- nal vote until today so that some absentees could be on hand. Sponsors said they were cer- tain Johnson would sign the bill this month, probably Thursday or Friday, so that the increases in present Social Security bene- fits can come in September. Law Enforcement Officials Silent on Barbara Jean's Killing as They Probe ST. PAUL (AP) Authorities in three counties pressed their investigation today into the slay- ing of young Barbara Jean Iver- sen while her parents, numb with grief, made funeral ar- rangements. Barbara, 14, vanished the night of June 9. She had been babysitting in suburban Shore- view at a house only three doors away from her own home. The girl's body was found Monday in a shallow roadside grave al the edge of a winding, sandy road near Cambridge. Barbara's father, George Iver- sen, 40, went to Cambridge Tues- day. After he returned home, the couple began making funer- al arrangements. They didn't talk much. "George is qiriel." said Mrs. Tversen. "There's not much to say to each other now anyway." Mrs. Tversen didn't know why her husband went to Cambridge, but apparently it was some sort of a final quest for hope that the body found was not that ot Barbara. "I guess he's starting to be convinced, but we're both a litle numb. Authorities said there was no doubt about identification of the body. The Ramsey County cor- oner's office here said the body was positively identified by com- paring X-rays with those taken of Barbara when she was alive. Kermit Hetlman, the Ramsey County sheriff here, said discov- ery of the body was no happen- stance, no case of "stumbling onto a corpse." He said locating the body followed questioning of more than 500 people. Authorities were extremely close-mouthed about their invest- igation. Hedman said the case was "unusually sensitive'' be- cause the girl's mysterious dis- appearance had been much pub- lic ized. Authorities here and at Cam- bridge said no arrests had been made. However, Lome Erickson, the Tsanti County Sheriff at Cam- bridge, said there were a num- ber of suspects in the slaying. He declined to elaborate. Hedman said the investigation was continuing not only in Ram- sey and Isanti counties, but also in Anoka County. It was at the Carlos Avery Game Refuge in Anoka County that one of Bar- bara's tennis shoes was found 10 days after her disappearance. Anoka County is between the other two, just north of Ramsey and south of Isanti. The body was Found under two feet of yellowish brown sand on the shoulder of the road to a heavily-weeded fence Rent Subsidy Housing Bill Needs LBJ's Signature By CARL P. LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) Only President Johnson's signature needed today to put into law a housing hill that includes the first program of rent subsi- dies Lo aid low-income families Swift presidential approval was expected for the measure which follows the main lines of Johnson's housing rec- ommendations to Congress ear- lier in the year. The bill, given final congres- sional clearance! by a 251-KiH House vote Tuesday, provides new money and authorizations for the major government housing programs over Ihe next four years. The i cnl subsidy proposal makes available million mcr a four-year period tn help some of the families eligible for public housing. In effect, the program would provide an for pub- licly financed housing develop- ments for such persons. Eligible low-income families the standards would vary from place to place who are oc- cupying substandard housing, or arc elderly or handicapped, or boon displaced from their homos by govci nmcntal pre- emption or natural disaster, would he eligible for the subsi- dies These would help pay a fair rent for accommodations in structures owned or to be built hy churhces, cooperatives or other nonprofit or limited-divi- dend organizations. It was esti- mated the subsidies would sti- mulate use of such units. Subsidies would not be paid to private landlords in busines for profit. While the congrcssionally ap- proved legislation went along with the principle of subsidies, a new departure advocated by the Picsidcnt, it changed the appli- cation significantly. The origi- nal proposal was designed to help those with income too high for low-rent public housing but loo low for privately built homes and apartments at the going rates A family receiving the subsidy would have lo pay 25 per cent of ils income for rent. The subsidy would then make up Ihe differ- ence between this payment and the rent needed to obtain ade- quate housing in the specified kind of project. If the family's income increased, the subsidy would decline or be eliminated entirely. LOOK AGAIN line. Officials would not com- ment on the position of the body, tennis shoes and pajamas in the grave. The shoe found with the body matched that found at the game refuge. Both had "Barbara Iver- sen" written across the insteps. The grave presumably was dug at night. A mobile home is located on a nearby hill, and from that vantage point a per- son could have witnessed a day- light burial. Barbara's father was red-eyed when newsmen talked to him Tuesday. "Don't ask me how I he said. "How would you Was he relieved, reporters asked, now that Barbara had been found? "Now don't ask me a ques- tion like said Iversen. "How could I be relieved'7" "What can I added Iv- eisen. "There's nothing to say. Nothing." Motorist Flees After Hitting Elephant PORT ELIZABETH, South Af- rica UP) A motorist fled in terror after his auto had crash- ed into a two-ton elephant in one of the main streets of Port Eli- zabeth. The elephant had escaped from a nearby circus. An atten- dant was lading the animal back by its trunk when the au- to struck it in the dark. "1 don't know where this thing came Balthazar Classen, 30. told a magistrate. "It suddenly appeared in the middle of the road I hit it and 1 lost my nerve and ran away."

(AP Wirephoto) Attorneys Study Ruling to Determine Needham's Cost to Settle Dispute SIOUX CITY WJ Attorneys were still studying today a 98- page arbitration board ruling to determine what it will cost the Needham Packing Co. to settle with union members in partial back pay dating from 1961. Rath Packing Co. of Waterloo had a special interest in the outcome because it had propos- ed to acquire the Sioux City firm and previously had been hauled into court by some dis- senting stockholders. If the back pay cost is too high the deal could be dropped. The case stems from May 11, 3961 when about 200 Needham employes who were members of Local 721 of the United Pack- inghouse, Food and Allied Work- ers Union left their jobs in a wildcat strike. Needham subse- quently replaced them with non union help. In its ruling last Saturday the arbitration board said that the Local 721 members were not entitled to pay for the first six months of the illegal work stoppage However, it said they were entitled to back pay from Nov. 12, to Feb. 12, 1962, and from March 10, 1964, to the effective date of reinstatement. This covers about 18 months of retroactive back pay. None of the parties could give a firm figure on what this would cost. Some of the Needh a m workers have taken other jobs. H was not clear whether they must i etui n to work at Need- ham m order to collect One source estimated that un- ion wages were about a or a total of around 000 for (he period Some union sources said that at the figure affecting about 200 work- ers, the absolute maximum of hack pay due would be mil- lion but indicated they did not expect it to be that high At Ames, Prof Harold Davcy of Iowa State University, was chairman of the three-man arbitration board, said that all questions were covered in the ruling but could not be en- larged upon except at the spe- cific request of parties involved. Harry Smith, attorney for Lo- cal 721, said after a meeting of nearly 150 former Needham em- ployes Monday night, that some points in the board's decision would have to be reviewed. "We have all read the deci- sion and are going over said Jesse E. Marshall, Needh a m general counsel and representa- tive on the arbitration board. "The decision is extremely com- plicated and vague as lo some of the details. We have to un- derstand it first and then de- cide what to do." Rath sources estimated that it would take about a week for Needham officials to determine the amount of back pay due. Meanwhile, four members of the family that founded Rath have pending in the Iowa Su- preme Court an appeal to ban the acquisition of the Needham company.
