Bob's Iwo grandchildren, Jess, t. and Annmarie, 3, live on the Rankin ranch with their parents, the Bob Rankins Jr. and, out where rattlesnakes sometimes appear and coons and ringtail cats just might go after the chickens, they have de- veloped this habit of looking straight at things. Jess went with grandpop the other day to the Rankin office, which is in the office operated by Ada Greer, an office in which there are some potplants and fern and such for decoration. Jess looked over the plant life. "What you gonna do about all this asked Jess. Annmarie, who is equally straight forward, was babysit- ting with her grandparents the other night when she decided she wanted a story from a fav- orite storybook, one about rab- bits and birds and such crea- tures dear to childhood.

The spokesman, Harold Evans, toid reporters that there was "some prospect of a compromise a compromise solution of which will satisfy both sides" on alliance-splitting dispute ver the Skybolt nuclear missile sue, a British spokesman dis- losed Wednesday night. The negotiations are moving acre slowly than expected, how-: ver, and the Nassau conference! hat began with an informal meet- the Skybolt. He added that there lad been progress but no agree- ment so far. Evans said he did not think the iroblems confronting Kennedy and Macmiilan were too great for solution.

Bob Sr., it has been widely noted, is a "windmill-fixer." He carries on, it is true, some other business and ranching activities, but his only claim is "windmill-fixer." His cards so declare and he 5.3 declares. Now, it comes to light, he really did "fix" a windmill the other day. It came time to pull the pipe on a certain windmill on the Rankin property and Bob was performing, along with Bob Jr. and helper. With block and tackle, with rope and chain, with wrenches and assorted tools, with a brand new pickup and with the special Rankin knowhow, the task was being done. Bob manned the pickup, his favorite sheepdog Rock beside him to coach, and pulled the pipe when it was attached to the bumper by intricate network. Out came the sucker rod and out started the pipe, caught and held at intervals so sections could be removed. The job was going slick as a whistle for the windmill-fixer when something happened. Bob and Rock waited in the pickup, "must have been 10 minutes." Impatiently Bob put the pickup in low gear it was so new the emergency brake hadn't been connected and hopped out to see what was the holdup. Off he trotted downhill, for Uiis was on a slope, to give his fellow windmill fixers the benefit of some advice. The pickup decided to go, too. The gears hadn't meshed or Bob hadn't got it in low or maybe Rock had hit the gearshift. Anyway, the pickup started downhill right after Bob. Bob turned around to "stop" it with outstretched hands. The pickup was by now in a hurry. "Get out of the Bob Jr. yelled. And everybody did. The pickup charged on, headed for the windmill. Its aim was accurate. Bob's insurance covered the once new pickup. But the windmill tower which entwined the truck was Bob's. It didn't cost him but about to "fix" that windmill. But he really fixed By JOHN BARBOUR WASHINGTON Communitie were given the go-ahead Wednes day to use the Sabin oral vaccine against despite a "verj small risk" among adults, es pecially those over 30 years old Particular emphasis should bi on treating children and young adults, when the danger of polic s greatest. Surgeon General Lu her L. Terry of the U.S. Public lealth Service said. Terry made the announcemen after a special advisory pane concluded three months of pon [ering whether one strain of the live virus vaccine might cause paralytic polio in some adults. "The committee feels, and wholeheartedly agree, that of jreatest importance is planning for the continuing vaccination oncoming Terrj 5 said. "This is the only way .we will succeed in eradicating polio permanently." Terry said the need for im munization diminishes with ad vancing age. Currently the total number o cases in which paralytic polio seems to have been induced b> the Type III vaccine is 11, o which eight are nersons over. -30 Paralytic polio connected will Type I vaccine has shown in seven cases of which four are persons over 30. This means a maximum risk ol saraiylic polio from using Types I and III vaccines is on the order of one case among every one million vaccinated persons or less ol all with a higher risk for those over 30 years of age. No figures were given for the risk to persons over 30. "Vaccination is especially recommended for those adults who are at higher risk of naturally occurring the committee said. "For example parents of young children, pregnant women, persons in epidemic situations and those planning foreign travel." There is no risk involved in Use of the less virulent Type II virus, experience has one day beyond the schec uled Thursday night windup.

Official statements in Washing- ton maintain that the committee now negptiating with Fidel Castro in Cuba for the release of the prisoners is a private one, sup- ported by private funds. But the prisoners, if they are released, will owe their freedom! m large measure to the U.S. government. Reports are that Cas- committee could oorntttate a deal of such magnitude without the active support of the Kennedy administration. There have been some reports. tro, in exchange for million [denied by the administration, that worth of drugs and food, may be willing to send the prisoners to Robert F.
