CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (API Tiros V rock- eted into orbit today to seek the cause of the killer storms and perhaps help devise means of taming them. A three-stage Thor-Delta rocket blasted off at a.m. carrying the fifth in the series of weather eye satellites. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced more than two hours later that the satellite was in orbit and had transmitted its first _ series of cloud cover pictures. A pair of television cameras in the Tiros V made pictures as the satellite completed its first orbit and relayed them instantly to a tracking station at Wallops Island, Va. Weather experts-hope the pic- tures will provide valuable infor- mation on the origin, develop- ment and movement of tropical storms born in the 1962 season, which opened last week. 'The robot" weatherman achieved orbit despite a malfunction in the Thor-Delta guidance system. Project official Robert Gray re- cisely as the guidance would Gray said.

Tiros III photographs disclosed Hurricane, Esther two days before conventional means could have spotted it. In its four-month useful life, the satellite photographed five hurricanes and one tropical storm in the Atlantic, two hurri- canes and a tropical storm in the eastern Pacific and nine typhoons in the .central and western Pacific. Tiros V was launched on a course which would enable it to cover a much wider area of the world than its four predecessors. The route would put its cameras within range of all territory be- tween the Arctic and Antarctic circles.

Hicks Smith Jr., postmaster, and former Marine pilot, presented the report of the Airport and Avia- tion committee of the Ada Cham- ber of Commerce. Smith serves as chairman of this committee. The report was released to the press over the weekend. Smith, explaining that his committee requested to investigate spe- cific charges made by Leroy Hea- ton and Bill Price against the air- port operators, had thoroughly in- vestigated the matter by sub-com- mittee assignment. As for the charges, "we feel each of them to be unfounded by fact." In general, "our present air- port operations are far superior to that in any city of comparable size with which we are acquaint- ed." They had praise for the fa- cilities and the operator, Charles Davis. However, the committee did suggest: first, revision and mod- ernizing of the city code dealing with, aviation: second, encourage- JFK Nixes Compromise On Revision Of Taxes WASHINGTON Ken- nedy administration has rejected a proposed compromise on its embattled tax revision bill, sena- tors said today. The decision left the measure's future-highly un- certain. About the only certainty was that the bill faced still further de- lay because the Finance Commit- tee is going to put it aside again Wednesday. The measure has been passed by the House but has been held up in the Senate since: April. Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del., senior Republican on the Finance Committee, told a newsman the administration was advised 'it could have the less controversial parts of the bill. We'll wager ten to one Uncle Sam will be the first to offer interplanetary, aid. (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) i Such a plan would have meant dropping what the administration considers the three key elements of'the revision masure: investment credit designed as an incentive to business to modernize its plant and equipment. A withholding plan on dividends and interest. taxes on foreign subsidiaries of companies. However, Williams said, the proposed .compromise would re- tain numerous loophole-closing provisions, -including those affect- ing savings and loan associations and mutual banks, expense. ac- cooperatives, mutual "fire and casualty 'companies, and for- eign tax havens. The plan was, said Williams, to hitch these and other nqncontro- versial provisions of the tax'bill to a -measure' extending co'rpora- tion income taxes and major, excise taxes. This hill is to be passed shortly. But the administration's decK sion, the Delaware senator report- ed, was to continue its battle Jor the entire tax revision bill. ment of an aircraft owners' as- sociation: third, posting of rules and regulations around the air- port. The council voted to extend the present contract with Davis for another year. Also, the council requested, of the Chamber of Com- merce Airport and Aviation Com- mittee its assistance in preparing a revised ordinance governing the airport. The committee's report was ac- cepted and gratitude was express- ed by councilmen for the work of the group. Bennett Story and Robert Story, both of Durant, appeared before the council to request a franchise to use streets and alleys in con- structing a community television antenna system. Such a service is sometimes called a cable system. The men explained that one lofty tower would be constructed on a high point near Ada, from which coaxial' cable would be run into the city and from house to house. The cable would, be connected to television sets for improved viewing and listening and the re- ceiving of more channels. Story explained that the systems, not only receive more channels but improve quality. He said that here it was certain that three Oklaho- (Contlnu.d on Pag. Two) Three Judges Set July 31 Deadline To Start Action OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A three judge special federal court declared today all of Oklahoma's legisla- tive apportionment laws null and .void because of dis- crimination against1 urban residents and gave the state until July 31 to start correcting the situation. The court set July 31 as a date for granting relief in a suit brought by an Oklahoma City taxpayer and un- successful candidate for governor. If Gov. J. Howard Edmondson has called the legisla- ture into session by that date for the specific purpose of reapportioning its membership, the court said final action will be delayed until Sept. 10. An opinion filed by Chief Justice A. P. Murrah of the 10th Circuit Court of appeals said it is preferable that the legislature apportion itself-according to the long- ignored constitutional formula based principally upon population. However, the opinion also carried a heavy threat of court intervention within the next few months before the general election if action is not taken at the Capi- It said that possible remedies would be for-the. court to spell out a new apportionment formula-or for elec- tions at large of state senators and representatives until the legislature itself complies with the Constitution. Norman Reynolds, attorney for Gov. Edmondson, said "this is wonderful." Reynolds he could not venture an opinion on whether Edmondson will call a special legislative ses- sion before July 31. Judge Murrah said both the opinion and an interlocu- tory decree were concurred in by U. S. Dist. Judges Ross Rizley and Fred Dougherty. The decree declared that "apportionment for the nomination and election of the members of both houses of the Oklahoma Legislature are insidiously discrimina- tory against the plaintiff and' his class; hence prospec- tively null arid void for all future elections.' "It was explained that the word prospectively means from this point on, thus not in validating previous elec- tions or threatening the validity of action taken by the present legislature. The court's action came on a suit filed by Harry F. Moss, Oklahoma City, and was based on the now-famous decision of the U.S. Supreme Court March .26 which stated the federal courts have the right to intercede when state legislators refuse to properly apportion them- selves.

Negotiators Appear Unable To Stop Strike On Airlines and two Flight Engi- neers and the Pilots Association at the conference table Tuesday night until after mid- night. Then Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg ordered a re- cess so they could "do some more work .separately." Goldberg declined to say how the. talks were going but a spokes- man for the flight engineers said, "We made no progress none whatsoever." The main issue in the dispute, which has simmered and boiled since the 'airlines first began us-; ing jets, is whether, a pilot or an engineer should fill the third.seat in the cockpit. The flight engineers set 2 p.m. EDT today to start their walkout if mediation .efforts fail. President Kennedy has warned the flight engineers not to strike but he.has exhausted .remedies available-to him under the Rail- way Labor Act which 'governs dis- putes involving airlines personnel. As the 'government worked to stave off a TWA walkout, a strike threat against another The Transport Workers Union, AFL-CIO, announced in New York it plans a strike of ground employes against American at midnight Friday. The TWU, whose members work in maintenance, communications and storekeeping jobs, has been negotiating with American for sev- eral months for a new contract. Kennedy is expected to block this least by invoking provisions of the Rail- way Labor Act.
