(AP Rockefeller Gives GOP Policy Views Senate- House committee drafting a pro- posed statement of Republican principles gets the views of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York today on major domestic and foreign policies. Rockefeller, touching bases with all available Republicans, is ex- pected to get a favorable recep- tion from the policy makers for his latest theme that Republicans are wasting time looking for lib- eral or conservative solutions to the nation's problems. He has been bearing down on the .note ;in what is-regarded as an effort to quiet conservative op- position not only to his re-election as governor of New York but his expected bid for the 1964 GOP presidential nomination. Rockefeller has been tagged as a liberal -in the minds of many of his party members. He told a Republican women's conference Tuesday, "People who go around wearing an arm band looking for a liberal solution or a conservative solution are mere- ly blinding themselves to the reali- ties of the situation. It is like the man who says 'Don't confuse me with the facts; my mind is made up.'" Despite this disclaimer of any label. Rockefeller's cure for some of the country's ills remains too liberal for some Republicans. A case in point is his espousal of a program for medical care for the elderly financed by Social Security taxes. Except for an op- tion for beneficiaries to choose cash, this parallels President Ken- nedy's plan, which a majority of GOP members of Congress op- pose. On the other hand. Rockefeller found substantial support among congressional Republicans for his earlier contention in Detroit that the Kennedy administration had not attacked basic economic prob- lems with sufficient vigor or un- derstanding. The Senate-House Republican group currently is working on the military-foreign affairs section of its proposed statement. Rockefel- ler is the first GOP state execu- tive to appear before it.

Ada Churches Plan Special Holy Week, Easter Services Jovial Kennedy Cancels Charges Against Complaining Guardsman By WENONAH RUTHERFORD Special emphasis is given the Sunday ser'vies commemorating the resurrection of Christ by Christian Churches everywhere. Easter is the climatic point in the Lenten season and Holy Week and Ada churches, like churches throughout Christiandom, have planned services to reiterate the promise of Easter in song and word. Several local churches will lead up to the Easter messages with Maundy Thursday and Good Fri- day observances as well as Holy Saturday services. Special Day Easter is the one special day in the church calendar which does not vie so much with outside in- terests. New bonnets, colored eggs and family get-togethers, spring school vacation, it is true, are a part of the Easter festival but for the most part it is a day for wor- ship. Representative of the Easter services are; St. Joseph's Catholic Church will begin Holy Week services with high mass preceded by the Adoration and Vigil at the Tomb which will last until Friday at 8 p. m. Good Friday, All day Ado- ration and Vigil at the Tomb, p. m. Stations of the Cross, end- ing at 3 p. m. the moment of Christ's death, and 8 p. m. mass of the presanctified. Easter Sunday holy mass will be celebrated at 8 a. m. and munion at the First Presbyterian Church. The choir will sing at the services which will begin at p. m. Dr. Herbert Tays, pastor, will deliver the Easter Sunday sermon at a. m. St. Luke's Episcopal Church will observe Holy Communion at p. m. on Holy Thursday. Good Friday a three-hour service is scheduled from 12 noon until 3 p. m. Holy -Saturday the Holy President Also Orders Convicted Soldier Freed WASHINGTON Kennedy announced today that "in the spirit of Easter week" he has canceled court-martial proceedings against a National Guardsman who complained against the President's call-up of Re- servists. At a news conference carried to the nation over live TV and radio, Kennedy said that gripes by-a small num- ber of Reservists were more, misguided than anything else. So he said he got in touch with the secretary of the Army and arranged for dropping of the charges against Pfc. Larry D. Chidester.. 24, of Salt Lake City, who is stationed at Ft. Lewis, Wash. Kennedy also announced he was freeing Pfc. Berms Owen, 23, of Seadrift, Tex., a Reservist on duty at Ft. Polk La. Owen was found guilty on March 27 of a charge similar to that against Chidester. Owen was sen- tenced to six months hard' labor and ordered to for- feit a month pay while in the stockade. Chidester was accused of vio- lating the uniform code of mili- tary justice by encouraging fellow soldiers to sign a letter critical oi the President. Sent to Sen. Wallace F.

It was in'that connection that he spoke of the limits on the gov- ernment's role. .The chief executive wound up with 'a prediction that in the peri- od just ahead industrial profits will be "the highest in history."

The bond issue passed by a 133 to 0 margin in the election .held at Byng SchoolTuesday afternoon. Construction on'the project will start about .June 10, according to Superintendent J. E. Teaguc. The bond issue calls for con- struction of eight new .classrooms a complete revamping of the Dean said the new plan was based on the principle "that the nations of the world should seize a moment in time to stop the arms race, to-freeze the military situation as it then appears, and to shrink, it to zero, always keeping the relative military positions of the parties as near as possible to what it was at the begin- ning." Instead of starting the disarmament process with an inventory of national military which the Russians have always rejected as new American plan called, for spot checks in selected areas. These checks would be con- ducted on the sampling technique developed by big industrial corporations. The military forces and installations in any sample area would give international in- spectors a picture of the total. American officials said Soviet diplomats with whom they dis- cussed the sampling idea prior to introduction of the draft "seemed fascinated by it" but did not com- mit their government. The Americans felt the samp, ling procedure went a long way toward meeting Soviet objections against 'foreign inspectors, swarm- ing all -over Russia in the early stages of disarmament.
