The firms and their bids were: Western Contracting Corp. of Dallas, S3.530.509.60; Lane Construction Co. of Meriden, Conn., Check of Defense Budget Complete Three othur companies two and Jarbet Co. of San Antonio, Bid opening in the Windsor Ho- tel ballroom was a relatively brief affair, taking but 15 .minutes. Col. John F. Arfman of Albuquerque, N.M., district engineer for the Army Corps of Engineers, open- ed the four sealed bids before 125 persons. Host for ihc meeting was Uie Military Affairs Committee of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. The government's contract with the firm, said that since 1953, Zachry has done more than 550 million in runway work at Air Force bases in the southwest. They include Biggs, Bergstrom and Kelly AFBs in Texas and Holloman and Cannon AFBs in New Mexico. Construction will begin Feb. 1 at tlie south end of the runway. The project is scheduled for com- pletion Nov. 10. Zachry's low bid came on Sched- ule B, which calls for the widen- ing of the runway to consist of asphalt with an 18-inch base.

For the first hour and a half of their session, at the holiday Wiite House overlooking the At lantic, Kennedy and MeNamara were joined by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Curtis Torce chief o!

LeMay, Air staff, arrived in a mood to dispute a Kennedy-Mc Samara decision to scrap cicvs! opment of the controversial Sky- wit missile. There was no evi dcnce that this basic policy deci- sion was altered, however. With the Defense, Department wdget expected to jump from the current level of billion to a new peacetime peak of about lillion, the President and his mil- tary chiefs had to consider which projects show the greatest prom- se and deserve the highest pri- jrily in order to head off an even teeper climb in outlays. The new budget for the 1964 iscal year beginning next July I, go to Congress next month. The Pentagon will account for more than half the total, expected to approximate rec ord high. Kennedy met with his military advisers after spending more ban an hour talking with Golda Meir, the Israeli foreign minister who is returning home after at- ending United Nations sessions in York. crging from the President's borrowed villa, Mrs. Meir gave no clue to the nature of the dis- fated landing to Florida in a cussion. Presumably the President and Mrs. Meir touched on continuing unrest in the Middle East and, perhaps, Israel's efforts to develop its own atomic program. MeNamara and Deputy Secretary of Defense Roswel] L. Gil-patric arrived before Mrs. Meir left, although they apparently did not join in her discussion with majority of the job will consist of widening the present runway from 200 to 300 feet and laying a 75-foot keel down the center of the runway.

After immigration procedures, enlivened by tiny children wailing over smallpox shots, the exiles were rushed in buses to a huge Miami auditorium where they were reunited with the captives.
