(UPI) A recovery team removed a giant ton telescope from a wooded area near here Friday and headed back to Palestine, Tex., where scientists said a space probe using the telescope was a success. A road was bulldozed into oil isolated area of a farm owned by Smith Hughes, 15 miles northwest of here in the Sallis com- munity, where the apparatus landed Wednesday.

The parade, sponsored by the Park Commission, will begin at 5 p.m. at Main and Walnut and will proceed to Washington Ave By BILL SARTOR Sabin anti-polio vaccine, an object at consider- able interest and no little controversy last year, again is attracting widespread attention from local and area doctors and health officials. Campaigns to distribute Ihe much-discussed oral vaccine on a mass basis have been launched in Memphis, Tenn., and in several Mississippi coun- ties within the last few weeks. These campaigns have helped generate a renewal of interest in the possibility of an oral polio immunization campaign in this county. Later this month, a Stale Board of Health survey team is scheduled to conduct a poll to determine how many pre-schon! age children have received immunization from polio, small pox and other communicable diseases. AS YET, no definite steps have been taken here to instigate such a program. It appears that most local doctors now have endorsed the im- munization program, but apparently, no one wants to sponsor a vaccine campaign here. Part of the reason for those seemingly contra- nue. It will turn off Washington on Harvey and return via Main to S. Walnut Street. ALL entries are urged to ba In place by 4 p.m. at which time all cars will be cleared from Washington Avenue. The following is the line-up of entries in the parade: 1. Squad car escort, 2. Officers By L n eceived ee Oswald DALLAS (UPI) -FBI agents Saturday were tracking down the source of occasional small sums Lee Harvey Oswald ap- parently received. The Western Union office in Dallas said FBI agents asked about telegraph money orders to the accused assassin. A spokesman, A. I. English, said the FBI was told it could not get such information without court orders. He refused to say whether Oswald had received money by wire, The Dallas Times Herald said it learned Oswald received sums ranging up to or pos- sibly at a time for several months prior to the assassina- tion ami his own slaying at the hands of Jack Ruby. The paper said Oswald sent a telegram himself a few days before President was shot. Western employes remembered him because he invariably argued with the paper said, whenever he went to the Western Union of- fice. They didn't say what the telegram concerned.

Ken- nedy again Saturday at his flow- er-banked grave and in the black-draped public rooms of the White House. crowds waited in near- freezing weather outside the Mansion and stream- ed up the slopes of Arlington Nalional Cemetery across the Potomac River in Virginia to show their respect for the as- sinated chief executive. White House police said 443 walked through the historic East Room, where Kennedy's body lay in repose a week ago, and saw the simple, black cata- fa'que that bore his coffin. An estimated others filed past Friday, the first day the While House was again open to the public. Salk vaccine must be administered by hypo- dermic needle which is enough to make many 'needle-shy' persons steer away from that of immunization, according to Dr. R. W. Williams cf the Washington Counly Health Deparlmcr-.t. EVEN IF there were no other problems con- nected with administering the vaccir.e, Salk would be more difficult (o distribute to the masses simply because of the time required to inject the serum, clean needles, etc. Limited largc-scalo distribution of the vaccine has been tried by some- schools. But with few Salk has not been distributed on a city-wide or county-wide basis such as in the mass dislribution clinics which mushroomed almost overnight last year to pass out Sabin vaccine. This Is one of the chief reasons that Sabin vaccine is attractive to many medical men: It offers a quick, easy way to immunize mass throngs against polio. In many instances, communities the size of Greenville have distributed Sabin vaccine to over 60 per cent of the entire city population in a single day. This is possible because Sabin, unlike Salk, Is an oral vaccine. It can be swallowed as a sweet- tasting liquid or applied to a sugar cube and eaten. Either way, [he result is (he same: the Sabin serum goes down quickly, easily and pain- lessly. There is not even a bad taste to experience the fear of a needle or pain is nil thus eliminating n major obstacle to mass participation In an immunization program. IN MOST CASES, reaction to Sabin distribu- tion programs has been enthusiastically among both children and adults. Usually the per- sons most reluctant to take the oral vaccine ara very young, naturally rccalitrnnt, children (under; three-years-old) and persons above 60 who often feel they are cither past the prime polio danger age or are so old that "it doesn't really matter too much" if they arc not protected. But oral vaccine appeals to most adults in Iho 20-50 age group, electors say, because it is so easy to take and because vaccine can be administered to the entire family in a matter of seconds. A smoothly-functioning distribution clinic can pass oul as much as doses of serum in- an hour, past immunization programs have revealed. The scrum usually is arranged in tiny cups containing vaccine liquid or a vaccine-soaked sugar cube. Persons merely stroll through a cafeteria- type line, take a cup, swallow its contents arid leave (he clinic with no more difficulty than walk- ing leisurely across a room.

Economy Aim Stressed Again By President WASHINGTON (UPI) Presi- dent Johnson notified all gov- ernment department and agen- cy heads Saturday that he will expect their help in carrying out the pledge of "prudence and economy" he made to Congress.

The President' said in a mem- orandum that public faith in free government is strongly in- fluenced by confidence "lhat public servants are alert and efficient in conserving the na- tion's resources entrusted to their care."

But they would not even reply to questions of whether a bomb might have been aboard the big American-built jet, which was just five minutes out of the Montreal International Airport Friday night when the crash oc- curred. TWO of the 111 passengers were Americans, both from the New York City area. Seven crewmen also died in the crash. 20 miles north ot Montreal. The U.S. citizens were iden- tified as Mrs. S. Hankozszky of P.O. Box 2 Port Washington, N.Y., and R. Kerne of 1491 East I8lh St. The plane crashed with explo- sive force in a muddy field dur- ing a driving rainstorm. Investigators said no piece of the wreckage was bigger than an ordinary office desk. The disaster was the second worst in the history of com- mercial aviation involving a single plane. TCA officials challenged the lice because of the extreme frag, mentation. There also was tha possibility of explosive depres- prcssurization. Experts from both the Cana- dian and U.S. governments led the investigation, made doubly difficult by deep mud and tha sudden onslaught this morning ot the season's first heavy snow- fall. Among them were two spe- cialists from the U.S. CivilAer- onactics Board (CAB) Gcorga R. Baker, flight operations ex- pert, and pilot engineer Jack Sanbourn. STATEMENTS from several per- sons living near the crash scene indicated the jetliner might hava exploded in flight. But airline officials in their preliminary re- ports claimed the plane hit tha ground, broke in two, then dis- integrated. The plane was en route to Toronto when it slammed into the mucky field. 1 In Sinking; 4 Perish CHARLESTON, S. C.
