MOTHER WOULDN'T LET HER GO ON PICNIC Girl Sparks Vandalism DENVER her mother wouldn't let her go on a picnic, a 15-year-old girl touched off an vandalism spree at a Denver high school. Here's the story told by police today: The girl was expected to stay home and care for her three younger sisters last Saturday while her mother went to an evening job. But the girl said her mother had promised to let her attend the picnic, then changed her mind. Angrily, she left the house with her 11-year-old sister, and the two began throwing rocks through windows of West Denver High School They ripped out records in the principal's office and scattered food in the home economics rooms. That night, with two 17-year-old boys, the girls planned a Sunday escapade during which they went back to the school and smashed worth of band instru- ments. One of the boys admitted starting a fire that caused damage. The boys were picked up first and they blamed the spree on the older girl, detective Les Strcctcr said. The youngsters were Questioned again today. No charges have been filed. Billion m Space Funds OKd WASHINGTON in- vestment of nearly half a bil- lion dollars in the race for space supremacy won over- whelming Senate approval to- day. This completed passage of a authorization for use of the civilian space administration during the 12 months that begin July 1. The vote was 81-1, with Sen. Allen J. Ellender (D-La) opposing. The measure, carrying the exact total recommended by President Eisenhower for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, now must go back to the House for action on several Senate amendments. V CONGRESS MUST vote ac- tual funds later in a separate appropriations bill. Sen. John Stennis floor manager for the bill, told the Senate this probably would be the smallest of a series of annual civilian space programs over the next 5 to 10 years. Costs are expected to hiL S2 billion within two years. The bill includes funds for a wide variety of rockets, sat- ellites, space vehicles and other experiments that might have been branded as fantas- tic a few years ago.
