Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma In this age of fission a nd fusion and fallout, one way to tell whether you're an old timer is: do you remember way back when the Balkans were the Powder Keg of Europe?

General Electric Co. announced plans Thursday to establish a space age center in Oklahoma City employing 1.200 by the end of next year, and possibly 'thou- sands later on. Things started looking up for the state's place in space develop- ment several weeks ago when North American Aviation an- nounced plans to do some of the work on the Apollo project in Tulsa. Components Ralph Cordiner, General Elec- tric board chairman, said Thurs- day the company would make components for electronic guid- ance systems similar to .those built to guide the orbital flight of Col. John Glenn. The firm will set up first in the pilot plant formerly used by West- ern Electric in northwest Okla- homa City and will have 300 em- ployes on the job by the end of the year. But Cordiner said the firm al- so had an option on acres in northwest Oklahoma City just east of Yukon where the company hopes to build a new plant eventually. Option On Site The new plant would build ma- terials for missiles, satellites, and space vehicles. The' increase in employes, and presumably the construction of the new plant, would be contin gent on General Electric gettinj government space contracts. How ever, Cordiner made it clear the company planned to exercise the option on the plant site. Cordiner was flanked at hi news i conference here by Oklaho- ma Sens. Mike Monroney and Robert Kerr. Instrumental Kerr is chairman of the Sen ate Space Committee. Monroney heads the Senate Aviation Sub- committee. Cordiner said both were instrumental in GE's de- dicision to locate here. He said the firm had greai faith in the Southwest and wanted a plant located near a university airport and a city. General. Electric, said Cordiner is also involved in the Apollo proj- ect which involves getting a man on the moon by 1968. North American's main work in Tulsa will be on the capsule for the Apollo project. They plan to employ shout persons by the end of the year, but there's spec ulation the firm may employ 11, 000 eventually. Reasons For Choice North American has acquirec land on the Arkansas River for development when the Arkansas River Navigation project is com pleted. The General Electric officia expanded on reasons for coming to Oklahoma at a dinner with prominent Oklahoma City civic and government officials. He paid tribute to Kerr and Monroney and Donald S. Ken ncdy, president of Oklahoma Gas Electric, for their effci-ts to get. the plant located in the state He said the company had been most interested in the growth o the Southwest and wanted to grow with it in the future.

Ribicoff once served as a police court judge in Hartford. Goldberg has had no judicial experience, although he has practiced law ex- tensively, especially in the labor field. In announcing Whittaker's re- tirement because of physical ex- haustion, Kennedy said Thursday he would name a successor short- ly.

It has been rumbling around in Massachusetts political circles for some time. The 30-year-old Kennedy is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for U.S. senator. Kennedy, saying he set the record straight, told this story of the incident: entered Harvard in 1950 ati the age of 18. Owing the second semester of my freshman year I made a mistake. I was having dif- ficulty in one course, a foreign language. "I became so apprehensive about it that I arranged for a fel- low freshman friend of mine to take the examination for me in that course.

An almost straight party-line vote saved the bill in the House Thursday. Passage by a vote of 219 to 196 came a few hours after the President at his news confer- ence, made a personal plea for the measure. The House action was considered his biggest tri- iumph of the 1962 session. Rep. Hale Boggs of Louisiana, the Democratic whip, .said "this sets the pattern, for the Kennedy program year. These were Democratic votes." On final passage, 218 Democrats and a lone Republican, Rep. Rich- ard H. Poff of Virginia, supported the bill, while 162 Republicans and 34 Democrats voted against it. House Democratic Leaders said privately that when the day be- gan the bill lacked the necessary votes to survive. Up to voting time the leaders worked furious- HiRAM R.
