(AP) - For 30 minutes, while consuming double helpings of scrambled eggs, the 33rd and 36th presidents of the United States talked Friday about the business of being president. And afterward they told how much ach thought of the other. The meeting between old friends Lyndon B. Johnson and Harry S. Truman was in the Muohlebach Hotel presidential luite where Truman sig;ned a lot of famous documents, including the one putting the Marshall Plan in force. "Mr. Truman and I talked bout the many experiences he had in the White House," said Johnson. "Especially we discussed the United Nations because it was his vision and cour age in supporting the United Nations that has made it what it is. He gave me some very rich background on it." The President stopped in Kan as City overnight - en route to the U.N. 20th anniversary cele bration in San Francisco - to have breakfast with Truman who lives in nearby Independence, Mo. Truman addressed charter conference in 1945 when Umbcrto I. he had been president less than three months. "No president in ftiy historic memory has made such an impression as you have," Truman told Johnson. "We are deeply in debt to Mr. Truman for his vision," said Johnson. Earlier in the week, Truman's secretary said the 81-year-old former president was not going to San Francisco because he has curtailed all his traveling. "I asked him to go with me, but he didn't thmk he could go," the President said this morning. "I'll go to the airport anyway," Truman said. And he did, giving a thousand people outside the hotel and a small crowd at the airport a chance to sec a current and former president together. When reporters in the presidential suite said they had no questions, Truman said "What the hell's the matter with you guys? You losing your grip?" To which Johnson said: "They're pretty cooperative." And Truman: "They're all right. They were Pantheon Falling ROME (AP) - Is the Pantheon falling apart?

Orbiting Lah Eyed WASHING-rON (AP) - The recent successful Gemini flight maneuver well in space apparently gave the Air Force renewed hope of a man-in-space venture of its own. Vice President Hubert Humphrey stirred Air Force hopes with an announcement Thursday that the National Space Council will meet July 1 to consider the MOL (Military Orbiting Laboratory) program. The MOL program contemplates use of a modified Gemini spacecraft attached to a cylindrical laboratory 10 feet in diameter and 20 to 25 feet long.

The President, however, was up at 6 a.m. first startling employes in the hotel restaurant by showing up for a cup of coffee and touring the kitchen. Then the President set off on a Truman-style walk, shaking hands wherever he found them. Rejected Viet Nam Assignment Officer Court-Martialed NAHA, Okinawa (AP) - Lt. Richard Steinke, 27, Milwaukee, Wis., was convicted Friday of refusing to join a counterguer-rilla unit in South Viet Nam. He could get up to five years imprisonment. The lieutenant, who was graduated 55th in the 600-man West Point Class of 1962, contended be disagreed with U.S. policy in Viet Nam and that the war there "is not worth one Ameri-ean life." A U.S. general court-martial headed by Col. John Beebe of Los Angeles, deliberated less than an hour. The court will reconvene Sat urday when defense counsel Capt.

Spraggins, Arlington, Va., testified he put an order in \vriting for Steinke to board a plane from Saigon bound for Gia Vac Jan. 31 after various senior officers failed to sway the lieuten ant's announced decision not to go. Spraggins, key witness at the trial, termed his reaction at the time as one of amazement. He said that "only once in my life had the opportunity to visit with Coach Corum and three of his assistants. They also saw film highlights of the 1964 Mountaineer season. Eddie Hess is the first driver; of the year to lose and regain; the lead in either class at Beck-ley Speedway. Hess, who was tops in the stock class for three weeks earlier this season, won the feature, the Tomahawk and finished second in a heat to vault into the lead over Charlie Jordan. Hess has 4,400 points, while Jordan claims 4,280. Jordan, who led the pack for four consecutive weeks, failed to score this past Saturday night, and he had a shaky experience week before. Hess gained the lead earlier this season the second Sunday of running. Jerry Hunter, whom he knocked to second, was some 500 points behind, and Jordan trailed by almost 1,000 marks. He maintained the edge four straight weeks, but then Jordan broke loose and raced out to a lead of 1,000 points. Hess fell to second.

Steve Guback wrote about it In the Washington Star and Bernice, a resident of Law-ton and former teacher at Layland Junior High, sent the clip. Wake Forest's "Bones" McKinney is quite upset because Waters stole a hoop prospect, Carl Head of Washington, from right under Mc-Kinney's nose. Head is a 6-4% junior college grad who is tabbed as another Bill Russell, by McKinney, who attended the national junior college tournament and saw him play. "His timing on blocking shots - well," McKinney stammered, "the things he does just have to come naturally. He could have made us (Wake Forest) a contender this year. . . ." But Head, who says he feels a "bit guilty", says he'U b� happier at West Virginia. "I talked to a lot of people, but it's my decision," Head said. "I may hurt someone now, but in the long run I've got to do what I think is best for me." According to McKinney, Head signed an Atlantic Coast letter of intent back on March 27. But West Virginia doesn't have to honor that, but the deadline of May 20 on the na> tional letter of intent date. McKinney, in Gnback's column, calls Waters "nothing but a vulture. Bucky didn't know the first thing about the boy until we got him. I was the only coach from the east coast to go to the national junior college tournament." Head will be eligible immediately at West Virginia University, as he would have been at Wake Forest, and from what McKinney says, he's going to fit in well with any varsity team and Waters is undoubtedly glad to get the Washington, D. C, native to go along with his fine freshman group led by Ronnie Williams of Weirton.

Included among the charges Steinke was convicted of was "willful disobedience to expose himself to hostile elements and hazardous conditions." At Milwaukee, Steinke's father, Raymond, said: "All he wrote us is that he disobeyed a direct order." In one letter, the lieutenant said the Army had turned down his attempt to resign his commission. "I guess they want to give me a dishonorable discharge," he wrote. "I thought I was right,! but I guess I was wrong." The elder Steinke, 65, is a warehouseman for a department store. Steinke is married to the former Marjorie Freese, of Lynchburg, Va. The couple has one child, Susanne, who was born March 25, 1964.

Tex. Some of the advice he passed along to the Little Leaguers is well worth repeating. Stengel managed to get across to the youngsters that they are making good use of their time. "While you're chasing a baseball you're not in trouble," Stengel reminded the Little Leaguers. "If you strike out you go back to the bench and nobody talks to you or kisses you but you've learned something." The Mets' manager made the trip as a gesture to a friend who also is Omaha's leading citizen, Oilman R. E. "Randy" Moore, a former major leaguer himself. Moore Some Happy Girls A lot of yoimg ladies are going to be happy to see Simday night roll around. These are the women who have been literally slaving every Saturday and Sunday night at the state women's bowling tournament. It has been going on at least 10 or 11 weekends, maybe more. Rut it winds up Sunday with singles and doubles and that big committee that checks and double checks figures, puts cards in order, checks entry lists and makes substitutions, and what all, will be able to bid adieu to each other. Of course, there'll be the prize checks to be sent out and trophies to be awarded, but that's not nearly so bad as the grind the girls have been going through for so many weekends. Phyllis Barker and Lou Manning have been the king pins, directors of the duties so to speak. I don't have the names of the big working committee at hand, but believe you me there were a lot of girls involved. Ilie tournament was the biggest women's event in its played with the Brooklyn Dodgers when Ole Case was manager there back in the late '30s. And there's another Little League story that comes from Weston, Conn. A three-year-old English setter who answers to the name of Yogi, is quite an asset to the Little League there, so much so he has been made an honorary member of the league. Yogi has saved more than $100 worth of baseballs by retrieving balls lost in adjoining woods and thickets. Last Saturday alone he brought back 18 practice balls and over two seasons he has sniffed out 78. "He learned how to smell out the baseballs from our German shepherd," said own-cr^trainer Bradley French, "Once he found out finding balls pleased us, he started searching through the woods on a regular basis."

If each one only spent $50 during Uieir two or three-day stay here, that's $150,000 to the city's economy. But congratulations all yon hard-working gals. You sure earn a vacation now. Actually, news-wise, the tourney sort of got lost in its latter weeks because of the great press of summer sports on the sports pages - baseball, golf, tennis, auto racing and what have you. Incidentally there are 35 teams coming in for this final weekend, eight of them from Parkersburg and as many from Huntington. Six teams drive down from Faur-mont, four will be here from Charleston, three from Blue-field and one each from Mor-gantown, Weirton, Clarksburg and Wheelmg. Two Beckley teams are bowling. It could be that many of these bowlers will be able to see the opening of Honey in the Rock, or stay ov^r and sec it Sunday night.
