Forrestal, while secretary of the Navy, once asked his chief of naval operations whether an officer convicted by a courtrmartial ever had risen to flag rank. "You're looking at one," replied Fleet Adm. Chester VV. Nimitz, who commanded the most powerful fleet in history during World War II. As a young officer, the soft-spoken Texan had indeed been found guilty and reprimanded by a Navy court - for running a destroyer aground in Manila The admiral, who died Sunday at 80, commanded a thousand ships and two million men during the battles leading to the surrender of Japan. He was the last of the five-star admirals. Despite holding awesome power, the admiral disliked pomp. On his 75th birthday the Navy staged a bjg party for him and he remarked: "Am I looking forward to this? I'm looking forward to the end of it. I feel the same about it as.the man who bought himself a small boat: His two happiest days were when he bought it and when he sold it." The admiral's first experience with a small boat was not pleasant. Born in a landlocked town, he never had seen an ocean until he arrived at Annapolis and became seasick on his first voyage - in a\mall boat there. Nimitz, whose career at sea spanned two world wars and the birth of the atomic age, died of what a Navy spokesman called complications following a stroke" suffered Jan. 3. With him at his home on Ycr-ba Buena Island Naval Base in San Francsco Bay were his wife, Catherine, one of his daughters and a grandson. Burial will be Thursday in Golden Gate National Cemetery just south of San Francisco. �nmn�i�i..................Pfff|.l.f(,fff|,frffffftft(mjJ NOW SHOWING feat. 7:07 9:25 "Admission Prices as Set by Producer: Children 50c, Adults $1.00 Wait Disneys most . that darn Cat jjj IM' 'NiC.UI OH ,^*� J In Washington, President Johnson paid tribute to Nimitz as a man of "quiet courage and resolute leadership." The President said Nimitz had earned "the undying gratitude of his countrymen and an enduring chapter in the annals of naval history." Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said: "Admiral Nimitz was one of the most distinguished officers of World War II. The entire nation will always owe him a debt of gratitude lor his brilliant service in World War II. He was a good friend whom I admired and respected deeply." Nimitz was jumped over 24 senior admirals to become commander in chief of the Pacific fleet after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941. His high command spanned the Navy's greatest days - at Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, Leyte Gulf and finally the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay, where he signed the agreement as U.S. representative. The battle off Midway, June 3-6, 1942, in which the Japanese lost four carriers and a heavy cruiser, was the turning point of the Pacific war, in the admiral's opinion. The Japanese offensive power sank with those carriers. His decorations included 30 medals, ribbons and badges, 1J of them from foreign countries. A native of Fredericksburg, Tex. - 20 miles from President Johnson's ranch - Nimitz said of his ocean-going profession, "It was career by chance." He failed in a bid to get an appointment to West Point. His naval career began, as it ended, on San Francisco Bay. He shipped out in January 1905 aboard the battleship Ohio, which became flagship of the Asiatic fleet.

De Gaulle told nearly 1,000 newsmen and officials in Elysee Palace: "It is the will of France to dispose of her own fate." He said this in connection with the announcement on French command of foreign troops on her soil after April 4, 1969. He declared the United States has been in conflicts such as Korea, Cuba (sic) and Viet Nam, and'that such conflicts could be escalated into general conflagration. He said France, of necessity, would be involved because her territory is used for communications facilities, air bases and other military in stallations. De Gaulle declared the United States has established a protec torate in Europe under cover of NATO. itfACKXI-IGTOri'S BirvriIDAY KNOWN FOR VALUES ONE ONLY!
