Advocate (Newspaper) - July 20, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 74 TOJ6PHONI m Congress To Tackle Pay Bills Baltic Looms On 'Poverty' WASHINGTON In creases for more than 3.5-mil lion civilian government work- ers and military personnel ap- peared likely Sunday as Con- gress prepared to push for ad- journment before the Democrat- ic convention. A military pay bill was on top of the heap and gave the Senate a chance to get back to work Monday on a noncontroversial note after a week's layoff for !he Republican nominating con- vention. But controversy aplenty lay ahead before the hoped-for ad- journment of Congress by the lime the Democrats open their convention in Atlantic City, N.J., on Aug. 24. Antipovcrly Battle A battle looms over President Johnson's anlipov- erty bill. Republicans can be ex- pected to wage strong fights against the bill in both House and Senate. The expected presence of both top GOP nominees may produce some campaign preliminary bouts. Sen. Barry Goldwaler of Arizona, the Republican candi- date, is due back in Washington late Monday. Rep. William E. Miller of New York, the GOP vice-presidential nominee, also will be a center of attention on Capitol Hill. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said he would ask Senate passage Monday or Tuesday of a million pay boost for more than 1.8 million persons now on active duly in the uniformed services. About men in the lowest enlisted ranks would get no boost. Committee Approval The Senate Armed Services Committee approved the mili- tary pay hike shortly after the Senate passed by a 58-21 vote a salary increase for an estimated 1.7 million govern- ment, civilian workers. That measure is expected to go to a Senate-House conference committee to work out a com- promise as Congress resumes work. A thick stack of legislation has piled up in tha Senate as a result of the 1 engthy struggle there before passage of the civil rights measure. Among these are some 30 appropration bills needed to began July 1. of injured stood at 219.

NUCLEAR WATCHDOGS Second Sentry Satellite Maneuvered Into Place second of two sentry sat- tellites maneuvered into station miles above the earth Sunday to complete a space tri- ple play aimed at perfecting a foolproof means of detecting se- cret high-altitude nuclear explo- sions. A ground station at New Bos- ton, N.H., flashed a radio signal Sunday to ignite a small motor aboard the satellite. The firing jockeyed the craft out of a great egg-shaped path ranging from 120 to miles high and shifted it onto a more circular course where both the high and low point are about miles. A motor aboard a companion sentry satellite was fired Friday night to inject it into a similar high-flying orbit. A third satellite launched on the same Atlas-Agena rocket which thundered away from Cape Kennedy on Friday contin- ued in the original elliptical path as intended. It Is a 45- pound "pygmy" package which is studying electrons in the Van Allen radiation belt. The Air Force reported all three satellites were transmit- ting good radio signals to earth stations. The twin 292-pound sentries are Investigating techniques for work of six orbiting stations to detect if Russia or any other na- tion violates the partial nuclear lest ban treaty by detonating a rocket-carried bomb deep space. Atomic Energy Commission officials said the experimental sentries will be used for limited operational surveillance duty, just as two earlier satellites ir the series are being utilized. The spacecraft motor firings were planned about 40 hours apart so the watchdog satellites would be on opposite sides ol the globe, about miles apart in their orbital plane. The widely-separated craft are a safeguard against a "false alarm explosion" which coulc be triggered by a cosmic ray shower or a flare eruption on the sun. Officials consider it un- likely that these events could strike two far-apart satellites 4.5. simultaneously. The sentries carry sensors to measure X-rays, gamma rays and neutrons, the products of a nuclear blast. They are to acan electronically more than 20C million miles into space to chart radiation so that a sudden burst of energy from a clandestine ex- plosion could be readily spotted. lyamun r Friday widely-separ similar safeguard ment through liis press secre- 'ary, said, "The governor's ac- ion was a surprise to me.

Nearby fields were jammed wilh more than vehicles. Mothers and fathers and sis- ters and brothers of the scouts were here. Also aunts, uncles, cpinins, just cu- rious folk eager to see what a Boy Scout docs. They pulled bank flaps of the tiny two-man tents to look at the bed rolls. They watched the scouts cook meals over charcoal fires and clean up afterwards. The scouts, paying little atten- tion to the visitors, busied them-l selves with their own fun and work and play, such as making new friends, and swapping said Reneker. washed down by gallons of milk and soda pop.
