(Story on Page A-3) Von Braun Asks Fair Conditions For Scientists Will Not Resign Because of Switch To Another Agency Washington Wernher von Braun said today he had no present intention of resign- ing from the nation's missile and space program if his group of army-sponsored sci- entists is shifted to another government agency. But Von Braun, chief scien- tist at the army's ballistic missile agency at Huntsville, Ala., told a news conference he might resign if "a pleasant environment" and challeng- ing space work are not given to him and his scientists aft- er any such transfer. President Eisenhower is considering whether Von Braun's group should remain under the army or be trans- ferred to the air force or the national areonautics and space administration, the ci- vilian space agency. Wants Good Conditions Von Braun said he was sure the president's decision would be "in the best interest of the nation." But he said "even a wise decision made in the best in- terests of the nation could ul- timately backfire" if the agency selected did not pro- vide proper conditions for his scientists. 'Situations arise that can create he said. "Sup- pose for example, someone should decide to cancel the Saturn program." The Saturn program is one aimed at producing a rocket with 1J million pounds of thrust capable of putting huge payloads into space. Von Braun summed up his attitude by saying: My position is this: The president is deciding this mat- ter and when the decision is made, he will be just as co- operative as we have always been. We'll try to make it a go. And we are convinced that it can be made to go." Awaits Added Word Wife to Help if Illness Kept Husband in Russia Cleveland The wife of an American who wants to stay in Russia declared today that "if it's another woman, that's it."

Myer for Hasn't Made Up Mind on Specific Proposal, but Will Veto Sales Tax, He Asserts Post-Crescent Madison Bureau Gaylord Nelson said Monday he will recommend to the November legislature a boost in state income taxes to meet a million deficit expected for the 1960-61 budget. He was emphatic about prospects for a sales tax: "I'dj veto a sales tax or any off-the-cuff tax revision.' The governor said he hasn't made up his mind about recommending a withhold- ing system for income tax collection, but said, "I'm inclined that way." If he again recommends the withholding system, Nelson said he will have to have some alternate proposals for the legislature. These would, he said, generally broaden the base of the income tax. Shouldn't Await Report Nelson dismissed any chance that the fall session could come up with a tax re- vision proposal based on the work of his blue-ribbon study committee. Some committee- men last week said the group could have some suggestions or at least a progress report by Nov. 1. The legislature reconvenes Nov. 3. "I don't think the legisla- ture should wait for a report from this said the governor. "The whole pur- pose of the committee is care- ful, scientific tax revision." The impact of any new taxes and their effect on municipal- ities would have to be estab- lished as well as the revenue they would produce, Nelson added. a trip home in July, "and many things take a new meaning in light of what has happened."

Worrell of Moores- town, N. J., "until she gets that gun out of her bag." That touched off a commo- tion and Sheriff Edgar Startt wound up arresting Mrs. An- geline Sailer, 47, of Burling- ton, N. J.

Truman in Tribute To Former Soldier, Cabinet Member Washington Muffled drums tap out a soldier's fare- well today for Gen. George C. Marshall. President Eisenhower and former President Harry S. Truman were to attend funer- al services at the Ft. Myer. Va., chapel for the 5-star gen- eral of the army. Marshall died Friday night at 78 after a long, illness. The general had served as army chief of staff during World war II and later as sec- retary of state and secretary of defense. He was author of the Marshall plan which help- ed war weakened Europe along the road to economic recovery. The body of the soldier- statesman rested in Bethle- hem chapel of the Washington National (Episcopal) cathed- ral until time for the services at Ft. Myer, just across the Potomac river from Washing- ton. Simple Services A simple funeral was plan- ned in accordance with Mar- shall's wishes.

Miller of Washington cathedral restrict- ed to 200 persons, graveside services restricted to mem- bers of the family and pall- bearers, burial in Arlington National cemetery on a slope below the tomb of the un- knowns. Former President Truman in an emotional, soft-voiced eulogy to an old friend today called Gen. George C. Mar- shall the greatest man of our time. Truman spoke reverently of his former secretary of state and of defense in a talk film- ed for television several hours before Marshall's funeral. "He was the greatest gen- eral since Robert E. Truman said. "He was the greatest ad- ministrator since Thomas Jef- ferson. 'He was the man of honor, the man of truth, the man of greatest ability. 'He was the greatest of the 'great in our time."

Immediately afterward, the striking United Steelworkers asked the court not to issue a Taft-Hartley law injunction. The government's petition said con- tinuation of the nationwide labor dispute would "imperil the national health and safety." On the other hand, the union petition filed by Atty. Ernest G. Nassar argued that the strike does not now endanger the na- Sorg tion's economy as interpreted under the Taft-Hartley law. Nearly an hour after the government petition was filed, U. S. Dist. Judge Her- bert P. Sorg was still study- ing it. He was expected to hold a hearing later this afternoon. U. S. Atty. Hubert I. Teitel- baum of Pittsburgh filed the bulky government petition. It was brought here by George C. Doub, assistant attorney general who flew from Wash- ington. United Steelworkers Presi- dent David J. McDonald said the union's general counsel, Arthur J. Goldberg, will ap- pear in court to appeal the gov- ernment's petition for an in- junction. Union Group to Meet Goldberg said he will ar- gue that the provisions of the Taft-Hartley act which have been invoked are unconstitu- tional. He said he also will ar- gue that the strike does not imperil the national health or safety within the meaning of the Taft-Hartley act.

Mike Mansfield of Mon- tana, assistant Democratic leader and a member of the senate foreign relations com- mittee, made the suggestion. He said the international co- operation administration "is to be commended for attempt- ing to maintain close control over American funds" in Laos. 'It is time for a shakeup in the whole aid program and a reassessment of its Mansfield said. Resent Western Reports Regarding Langelle Affair Washington Washing- ton monitors reported today the Russians apparently have turned on their radio jammers against the Voice of Ameri- ca's broadcasts of the Lang- elle affair. Russell A. Langelle is the U. S. diplomat whom the reds kicked out of Russia last weekend, saying they caught him in spy work. The United States has denied the spy ac- cusations. Tass Airs Story Langelle, who had been top security officer at the Ameri- can embassy in Moscow, is now on his way back to Wash- ington with his family amid protests and counter-protests between the two capitals. Soviet jamming of the Voice of America's Russian lan- guage programs stopped for the first time in a decade when Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev visited the Unit- ed States last month. It has been sporadic since. The story was published to- day for the first time in the Soviet Union, in a brief ac- count by the Soviet news agency Tass. It briefly out- lined the charges against Langelle and made no men- tion of the U. S. version of the incident. Wife Kills Former Roller Skating Champ After Heated Argument Mincola, N.Y.
