This system, which feeds to the astronaut's Most Of Nation Shivers By THE ASSOCIATED PRE-S Eccentric winter hit Southern California with snow and freezing oxygen pressurized space suit, de- veloped problems during a checkout early today. The discovery of the trouble prompted officials to call an im- mediate 24-hour delay of the shot, pushing it off from Wednesday until Thursday. Later, the sources reported, it was decided to make a complete check to insure all is right for Glenn's safety.

Wood was convicted of trying to force Harold Harp, manager of Colvert Dairy Products, Ada, to open a safe at. Harp's office on Jan. 22, 1961. Thc state contended Wood used a knife to threaten Harp. Harp refused to open the safe and Wood was later arrested by police. District Judge John Boyce Mc- Keel sentenced Wood to the five- year term. In another District Court action, two Ada youths, Wendell Wayne Wilmoth and Joe Whitaker, pleaded guilty to charges of lar- ceny of an automobile. They were charged with stealing a car owned by deputy sheriff George Lance last week. Five-year suspended terms were recommended by the prosecution and they will be formally sen- tenced this week. pushed the launching back still another day. News of the postponement came as astronaut Glenn, like a superbly conditioned boxer clos- ing out his training camp, began final preparations for the flight. He was scheduled to make one mare simulated orbit flight in a groundbased capsule and then go into a tapering off period. The final preflight days mostly will be taken up with medical checks, a final briefing, running on the beach to slay in shape and, in- exorably, waiting.

State Highway Department officials warn that all area roads are iced over and hazardous. The entire county road system has been blanketed with a sheet of ice. Roads seemed particularly bad in the eastern quadrant. Rainfall during the 24 hour period ending at 7 a. m. Monday totaled .35 inches. This combined with a low temperature Sunday night of 12 degrees, and 12 degrees this morning at 7 a. m., made for extremely slick high- way conditions.

The severe weather also brought work on the Oklahoma City pipe- line to a standstill. ROME (AP) The Italian de- fense ministry said today the Bulgarian plane thai crashed in Italy Saturday was on an aerial spying mission. A ministry communique said the plane, a Soviet-built MIG 17, crash landed. Tile plane previ- ously had been identified as a MIG 19. The communique said evi- dence of spying was obtained from film found in the plane, which carried high-power cam- eras on two passes over a secret allied missile base near Bari just before it crashed.

Officials estimated more than toni of snow plunged down the southern slope of 14.341-foot Mount Elbert in a run. It engulfed the western end of Twin Lakes, a central Rocky Mountain village 140 miles south- west of Denver. The avalanche was more than 300 yards wide and 15 feet deep. One family was wiped out. G.

Their son Billy, 8, was found dead. Another son, Michael, 10, was Counter-intelligence agents wcroi missing The other two houses were va- cant. About 600 persons worked more than six hours in the frigid moun- tain air probing the wreckage. A neighbor, Nels Lindstone, 66, said that when he awoke at 8 a.m. he looked out of a window and saw only snow and wreckage where thc houses had stood. Lindstone said he tried to tele- phone thc sheriff in Leadville, but telephone lines were down. He hailed a passing motorist to notify exposed film found in the Soviet- built MIG19.

In comparison with this, the Alliance for Prog- ress does not mean a tiling." Rep. Armistead Selden, Ala- bama Democrat and chairman of the House Inter-American Affairs Committee, told newsmen that un- less the foreign ministers take strong action against Cuba that, "tilings could be disagreeable in Congress" when the Alliance for Progress appropriation comes up. Selden is one of four members of Congress who flew with Rusk to this sun-baked Atlantic play- ground, underscoring President Kennedy's concern with getting the initial'Alliance for Progress appropriations through Congress. Other authoritative U.S. sources said there probably would be a big cut by Congress in the bil- -lion Kennedy earmarked for the program because of thc alarm over Cuba among U.S. voters.

He replied to the outcry already raised in Congress by the first mention of his standby tax and per cent investment credit for in- in tne state dustry. He also called for repeal of the Silver Purchase Act, aid to educa- tion at all levels, health care for the aged under Social Security, job training for idle youchs and job retraining for out-of-work adults. N'o "Tight Money" The President pledged that this recovery will not be nipped olf he said that of 1959 a tight-money policy. The outlook for stable living costs is favorable, he assured Congress, if unions and industry will show statesmanlike restraint 'of the Union message.
