As 4 500 mutinous nationalist guerrillas massed soutn- west of Algiers, the capital's jubilant Moslems readied a roaring welcome for Premier Youssef Ben Khedda and his nationalist government.

Ida Schuhmacher planned to take the child back to his home- land as soon as_ possible after U.S. immigration officials turned him over to her today. She said she wasn't interested in prosecuting the religious zealots who spirited him away. "I am only interested in getting my she said. Mrs. Schuhmacher, 37, arrived from Israel by plane Monday night and was taken immediately to an immigration office to see her son, Yosef, whom she calls "Yossele." They recognized each other im- mediately, an official said, Mrs. Schuhmacher rushed to embrace the youth, crying over and over in Hebrew "My boy! My Peter Esperdy, district director of the Immigration Service, said the boy had been found Saturday at the home of Rabbi Sanzil Gert- ner, a member of the ultra-Ortho- dox Hasidic sect, in Brooklyn. The youth had been living there under the name of Jacob (Yankele) Gertner. Esperdy said the Gertners nei- ther disputed the identification of the boy as the missing Yosef Schuhmacher nor claimed the right to keep him. Mrs. Schuhmacher put the boy in the care of her grandparents, Rabbi and Mrs. Nahman Starkes, in Jerusalem in 1957 because the Schuhmacher's, recent immi- grants to Israel from the Soviet Union, did not have a proper apartment at the time. When they asked for him back three years ago, the rabbi refused on grounds there would not be enough Orthodox discipline in the home. Then the child disappeared. GOP Chiefs Seek Vote On Rights Caucus Agrees To Fight To Showdown At Governors' Meet HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) Caucusing Republicans agreed today to try to force a showdown vote at the Governors' Conference on a strong civil rights resolu tion. With the Resolutions Committee still trying to produce a compromise pro- posal in this and the field of health care for the elder ly, Republican governors decided to carry-their fight to the floor if that is neces- sary to get a "meaningful" civil rights declaration. But the Republicans were split over the issue of financing health care through Social Security taxes. Democrats, who outnum- bered them 34-16, seemed likely to produce a majority for endorse- ment of this program. Kennedy To Speak The conference, which closes with a visit Wednesday to Phila- delphia where President Kennedy will speak, got a series of invita- tions for forthcoming sessions. Gov. Farris Bryant of Florida put in a bid for Miami in 1963, promising the governors they would get a look at a Cape Ca- naveral space shot. His invitation seemed likely to be accepted later in the year by the Executive Committee. Gov. Richard J. Hughes of New Jersey asked the governors to meet in Atlantic City in 1964, promising they could also visit the New York World's Fair on the same trip. Rocky Chimes In Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller said he thinks the meeting ought to be held in New.York but added he will cooperate with New Jersey. Gov. Edmund B. (Pat) Brown said he wants the governors to come to San Diego, Calif., in 1963. He promised them a visit to Mexico. "And by the he said, "I will be there- to greet you." Brown faces re-election opposi- tion in November from former Vice President Richard M, Nixon, Not to be outdone. Rockefeller, also seeking re-election, said that if the governors come to New York in 1964, "I'll be there to greet you." Kosellini In Line In a later session, Gov. Albert D. Rosollini of Washington was expected to be elected the new chairman, to succeed Gov. Wes- ley Powell of New Hampshire. The future of the National Guard was the major item on the Monday agenda which wound up with the governors taking a "no compromise" position against the Kennedy administration plan to pare down and streamline the Guard and Reserve system. This was outlined in the key speech, by Secretary of 'Defense Robert S. McNamara. They're Polite The governors listened politely and stingily applauded McNa- mara's scientifically oriented ex- jlanation of why they should give McCallum Sees Fine Future In State's Water Programs Speaker Tells Chamber New Pollution Laboratory Will Benefit Ada, Area By W.

A Matter Of Who'll Pay For Extra Vote? OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An- other problem finances pop- ped up today in the hassle over legislative reapportionment. There has been speculation over the possibility of special primary elections being ordered by a 3- judge federal court which on June 19 told the Oklahoma Legislature to reapportion essentially on a population basis this else. Also there has been speculation Gov. J. Howard Edmondson.would call a quick vote on the constitu- tional reapportionment petition, if and when it is upheld by the state Supreme Court I Louie R. Geiser, secretary of the state Election Board, said a special election normally costs about Geiser said the board has only enough hold one election the general election Nov. 6. The governor has only in his emergency and contingency fund and has requests for some of this to make emergency repairs on state property. This means he could pick up the tab on one special election, but not on separate ones for the petition and new primaries. Thus if the court should order new primaries, it is doubtful if the petition would be put to a vote this year. Edmondson will not return until late Wednesday from the annual Governors Conference in Hershey, Pa., and could not be reached for comment However, his administrative as- sistant, H. I. Hinds, said he does not believe there will be too tight a financial squeeze. Hinds said .he thinks the 'gover- nor would have an understanding with the federal court before he calls a special election on the pe- tition. Also he said probably only one primary would be needed if the court washes out results of the May primaries. Hinds said _ the Election Board has some funds which could' be used and the governor could sup- plement them from the contingen- cy fund. Stale officials said Election Board funds and the emergency jand contingency fund have been the principal sources of financing for special elections. Some House members have been pushing for a petition vote, pro- viding a special session of the leg- islature is not. called by Edmond- son. Chief Justice A.'P.. Murrah .of the 10th Circuit-Court of Appeals Monday-the petition -would not be a .remedy for the reappor- tionment problem. He said in ef- fect the reapportionment must be based on the federal Constitution granting equal protection to. all' citizens, and not on the state Con- stitution. This has been interpreted to mean that a 7-member per county limit on House members in the state Constitution would not be al- lowed to stand. Hoover added that he hoped to obtain permission from Nor- man for a "live" broadcast of the first game of the season when Ada plays at' Norman. In return for permission to televise home games, Hoover said, KTEN will advertise and boost the sale of season tickets. As a further consideration, Hoover proposed aiding the high school athletic department by providing a station wagon and driver to help transport track 'tennis teams during .those The driver, a news and cam- era would cover the track and tennis meets as well -as pro- vide, transportation. Board members expressed some cqncc'-n that televising the football game; might. result in a marked drop in gate receipts and thus hamper the school ath- letic department financially.
