Well Chosen Kennedy's choice of these par- ticular states is no accident Each was fought over bitterly during the 1960 presidential cam- paign. In the end Kennedy was lucky to come out with a 2-2 tie. He won Michigan and Minnesota, but barely. His Republican oppo- nent, Richard M. Nixon, carried Kentucky and Ohio. Ohio was a real blow to Ken- nedy. It's a big state, with 25 electoral votes, and he drew some of his most enthusiastic crowds there, Nixon rolled up his biggest plurality in Ohio, winning, by al- most 300.000 votes. Since Kennedy was unable to take Kentucky and Ohio in 1960 even with the most strenuous of campaigns, it would seem dubious that he could do much good with brief stops there tonight. Worth A Try Democratic leaders think it'sj worth making the effort. j 'In Kentucky Lt. Gov. Wilson Wyatt covets the job held by Sen. Thruston B. Morton. As a former chairman of the Republican party Morton is a prime target. In Ohio, Kennedy would like to get in some good licks for Gov. Michael V.

Here members of the Indus- trial Art Club work on their float in the shop building at EC. The parade begins at 10 a. m. Saturday and will move down Ada's Main Street. It will feature homecoming queen candidates, 31 bands and a minimum of 13 colorful floats by various student groups at the college.

Saturday is homecoming' day at E.C. and there's never been one to compare to 1962. Banquets, pretty girls, gaudy floats, brassy bands and an un- defeated football team all promise a festive air unmatched in the history of the school. The first big event is the giant homecoming parade down Ada's Street., Leading -the 80-unit procession will be the East Cen- tral band. In its wake will flow 28 queen candidates riding in open-air cars, 31 high school bands, 12 huge floats, dignitaries of all political shades and a few surprises. The parade starts at 10 a. m. near East Central. It should re- quire an hour for the entire train to pass through downtown Ada. But, the parade is only the beginning.

Tiff's Over Peanuts; Byrd Insists Senate Stand By It's Position On New Law WASHINGTON (AP) Hot feelings over peanuts and pensions kept Congress in groping uncertainty- today over when it could bring its session to an end. Right after the Senate met for what some hoped would, be a dash toward a finish line Saturday night, Sen. Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., won a vote that it would stand by its position on the multi-billion-dollar farm appropri- ation bill. That's where the peanuts come in. The Senate is insisting on about S25 million for a num- ber of research facilities including a peanut marketing laboratory at Dawson, Ga. The House is re- sisting just as hard, so there is a deadlock on a bill that must get final action before Congress adjourns. The pensions issue is in a bill now at the White House. It would permit self-employed persons to establish pen- sion plans for .themselves. Congressional advocates of this idea are apprehensive that Presi- dent Kennedy would like to veto it. Sen. George A. Smathers, D-FJa., chief Senate sponsor of the bill, said he had had no word at all as to whether the President would sign it. Another must matter before ad- journment is final action on the foreign aid appropriations bill. Senate-House conferees' agreed to- day on a bill, but the House and Senate still must act. The total is million more than the House originally voted and million less than the Sen- ate put in its bill. Senate 'Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, asked if he thought Congress would adjourn Saturday night, had a two word reply: "Hope so." Sen. Hubert' H. Humphrey of Minnesota, assistant Democratic leader, told a reporter .he was quite confident of adjournment by Saturday night. Rep. Carl Albert of Oklahoma, House Democratic leader, voiced similar views but 'not so strongly. Sen. Leverett Saltonstall of Mas- sachusetts, chairman of the con- ference of Republican senators, said he feared it would not be until next Tuesday. Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfiald of Montana said he had put through the Senate1 on Thurs- day every remaining bill of any importance .on which he expected to get action except the last propriations measure, a clean-up supplemental. But he. noted that the three big disputes were yet unsolved. Both branches operated at a fast clip Thursday. The trade expansion bill, per- haps the most significant' meas- ure of the entire Congress, and the drug regulation measure were sent to the White House. CARTOGRAPHERS J. B.

Schirra Jr., who flew his- Sig- ma 7 spacecraft so precisely he landed almost dead center on tar- get, feels he made one goof. A space agency spokesman re- ported Thursday night that the Navy commander, for an unspeci- fied period, used two systems to control his craft's altitude in space. There was a consequent double usage of vital he in contrast was trying to con- erve. However, when'the time came to start down at the end of the sixth orbit, Schirra was quoted as saying his instruments showed he still had 78 per cent of his attitude control fuel.left. That presumably prompted him earlier to say his sensationally precise six-orbit flight on Wednes- day was "a definite step forward in terms of scientific accomplish- ment." And a spokesman called the flight extremely smooth in terms of pilot performance and space- craft systems operation. Lt. Col.' John Powers, spokes- man of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said Schirra's 78 per cent fuel still was much more than earlier astro- nauts had at the same point in their flights. He said the amount of fuel left after Schirra positioned his craft for re-entry had not been meas- ured. Schirra estimated he had enough fuel left when he landed in .the Pacific for several more orbits if they had been required. The fuel is hydrogen peroxide, which is converted into steam jets that turn the craft around in space. technical-' discussions with engineers and five fellow as-] The astronaut reiterated he had tronauts, Schirra said that several!

Schirra reduced .use of -the con- trol fuel by drifting for about half of the flight, said spokesman Ben James. During this time, the Navy commander made no at- tempt to control and stabilize the capsule's position in relation to the earth. Schirra described his drifting flight as "a very nice feeling.

Five of the six other' astronauts were flown aboard the Kearsarge Thursday by carrier plane from Midway. They and Schirra retired to his admiral's cabin to discuss and evaluate his reports.

GrissomV Air Force Maj. Leroy Gordon Cooper Jr. and Air Force Maj. Donald K. (Deke) Slayton. Schirra told them he had seen the same astronomic phenomena as Glenn and Carpenter on their orbits. These included snowflakes, and a blazing sunset in which the sun appeared flat on the horizon. Schirra said he had remained inside his space capsule until it was landed on. this carrier's deck because he wanted to keep all of its delicate instruments dry for technicians who will study them. When Schirra, grinning broadly, stepped from his capsule onto the carrier deck, almost the first thing he did was to reach up and touch the top of the spacecraft He explained he was checking the test .shingles of ablative material attached to it. ablative shingles are pan- els of materials which burn away under the extreme heat of atmos- pheric re-entry.

Federal government officials described the situation as "fairly tense." An indication that calm had re- turned to the 114-year-old univer- sity, scene of last Sunday's riots and two killings resulting from Meredith's enrollment, was the re- duction of the military force on hand. Some Mississippi National Guardsmen, pressed into service by President Kennedy just before the riots, will be released tonight and another got orders to re- turn home. The weekend was expected to be quiet in Oxford, after the Depart- ment of Defense ordered the homecoming football game be> tween Ole Miss and Houston switched to Jackson, about 170 miles south. Authorities feared the expected fans might have caused new incidents at Oxford. Little Millsaps College claimed foul and said the transferred would interfere with its in Jackson at the same game game time.
