By JOHN BENNETT A former Adan flew into Tulsa last week in a stream- lined Convair 990 jet transport. The giant commercial airplane came from Lindbergh Field, San Diego a delivery to American Airlines. On board was Jim Sugg, 1936 graduate of Ada High. As flight inspector for the big craft, Sugg personally stamped his approval on the plane's performance in the air. He kept close check on the functioning of the elec- trical, hydraulic, power plant and control systems throughout the flight. When the plane set down Jim Sugg had completed another of many such flight tests for Convair and de- livered another aircraft ready for action to an airline company. Then he drove to Ada with his U. S. Sticks To Plans For Arms Talks WASHINGTON (AP The United States still plans to attend the 18-nation Geneva disarma- ment conference even though French President Charles de Gaulle has called for a nuclear disarmament meeting by just the Big Four atomic powers, U.S. authorities said today. The United States and the So- viet Union joined last year in set- ling up the Geneva parley, which is scheduled to start March 14. The .countries involved are com- mitted to attend. Although France is one of the :8, De Gaulle suggested in a mes- sage to Soviet Premier Khrush chev that nuclear arms reduction could better be accomplished by a get-together of the four nations who possess atomic the United States, Britain, the U.S.S.R. and France. The mes- sage was made public Monday. Officials here were inclined to view the message as De Gaulle's notice to indi- rectly to the Western France wants to be in on the still- exclusive "atomic club" in inter- national decision making. Much of the negotiating so far has been done by the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. France consulted with her al- lies before the message was sent to the Kremlin. A copy was made made available Sunday to officials here. It was noted that De Gaulle ig: nored Khrushchev's proposal to start off the Geneva conference at the summit level. Washington and London had rejecled'Khrush- chcv's request. Otherwise, much of the French leader's message was regarded as reiteration of his views. These include his concept of big power dominance in world af- (Continued on Two) OKLAHOMA Cloudy this afternoon tonight and central and east Wednesday; clearing extreme west Wednesday; oc- casional rain and scattered thunderstorms beginning south- west late this afternoon spread- ing over central and cast by Wednesday morning; a little warmer tonight; cooler extreme west Wednesday; low tonight 44- 56; high Wednesday 48-60.

State Election Board Drops Appeal Plans OKLAHOMA CITY Election Board Chairman Clce Fitzgerald indicated today the board has abandoned plans to ap- peal its legislative apportionment dispute to federal court but he said a private citizen could do so. Fitzgerald said the board will meet Wednesday "to discuss fil- ing procedures." Fitzgerald and the Republican member of the board. Herbert Mewett, had threatened to appeal to federal court if the state Su- preme Court persisted in ordering ithe board to hold legislative elec- under existing apportionment laws.

"I'm just delivering the 990 to Tulsa and standing by to pick up any aircraft we delivered to them that they might want returned to the factory in San Diego." It was as a boy in Ada that Sugg first began the interest in airplanes that led to the high ranking position he now has with Convair. It was as a boy. he says, that he got the yearning to learn more about how airplanes work.

In opinions issued last week and Monday, the court declined to hold the laws unconstitutional even though they do not fully comply with the constitution. The court also said Fitzgerald and Hcwett would not violate their oaths of office by following them. Fitzgerald said attorneys for the board majority had been instruct- ed to "exhaust every legal reme- dy" in the matter. He said an appeal to the U. S. Supreme Court would depend on their advice in the matter. He also raised another prospect (Continued on Page Two) to furnish funds for such poses. If however, the area can be details.

Clark Questions declared that his best advise was that deannexation would not affect, in any manner, the rights of the citizens imme- diately concern-ad with such a move. He stressed that there was nothing personal in the request and that if it jeopardized any person's rights, he would publicly apologize. Councilman Joe Bonar and Dave Howe questioned Clark as to what actual committments he had re- ceived from the state level. Clark pointed out that he was not in a position to say. He did stress that representatives from this city had received marked encourage- ment to press forward and "to keep the ball rolling." W. A. Delaney Jr., well-known Ada oilman, was present and in- dicated his opposition to the south- west leg of the bvpass. He also wondered what effect deannexa- tion might have in relation to the Metropolitan Area Planning and Zoning Commission. He stressed that if the highway department felt official approval had been given by the council to the pres- ent road routing, the commission was "laboring under a misappre- hension of fact." Earlier Delaney had quizzed Clark on his statement that some cities had deannexed such prop- erty and then, after right-of-way had bean purchased, etc.. annexed (Continued on Two) meet in Tunis today to take up CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. John H. Glenn Jr. rocketed into orbit today in his spacecraft "Friendship 7" at a.m. Eastern Standard Time, and sci- entists planned to bring him down after he circled the earth three times in four hours, 50 minutes. As Glenn soared toward his rendezvous with the stars, he reported by radio to Mercury'control center at Cape Canaveral that "I feel fine and the view is tre- mendous." He said he could see the Atlas booster rocket falling away behind him and that he had a clear view of much of the earth stretching back to the Cape from his vantage point about 100 miles in space. "It's a beautiful Glenn exclaimed. The reports came from the control center here, where officials monitored the historic flight of the first American to be fired into orbit. Glenn's space capsule was blasted skyward by a powerful Atlas booster. ----------------------The massive rocket, generating pounds thrust, performed JFK Urges Raise For U.S. Workers WASHINGTON Kennedy urged Congress today to provide a billion-dollar pay raise over three years for the govern- ment's white collar workers.

Orbit Confirmed Almost immediately, the Mer- cury tracking station at Bermuda picked up signals from the swiftly moving vehicle and reported Glenn's'Voice coming in clearly. At this point, the National Aero- nautics' and Space Administration confirmed that orbit had been at- tained. It was planned to bring Glenn down to a landing 800 miles south- cast of Cape Canaveral at approx- imately p.m. 1 The launching came after sev- eral frustrating postponements dating back to Dec. 20. Several technical delays today slipped the scheduled a.m. launching for more than two hours and almost forced reduction of the flight to two orbits. Weightless Officials had said that if the liftoff occurred too much past a.m. they might cut the number of orbits. The .gravity forces which gripped Glenn on liftoff, making his lean, trim body feel eight times heavier than its normal 165 pounds, vanished suddenly when the capsule entered orbit. The pressure was gone and Glenn became weightless the. buoyant feeling that results when I space shot on all three networks. With them were Mrs. Glenn's sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Thompson of nearby Cambridge, and their son, Maj. Robert Thompson of Wright Pat- terson Air Force Base, Dayton. Mr. and Mrs, Glenn talked with their son by. telephone Monday night. The couple planned to remain in their home until final recovery of the- capsule and to assure themselves of their son's safety. Then they planned to go to the gymnasium of Muskingum Col- lege to talk to newsmen. There wasn't much business scheduled in this little college town where Lt. Col. Glenn spent jhis early years, school and col- lege. The official population of New Concord, situated on U.S. be- tween Columbus, Ohio, and Wheeling, W.Va., is little more than persons. Hundreds of them knew the astronaut as a boy and a young man intent on a career in aviation.
