VIOLENCE PRORE For Pittsburgh Student. 17— Amazing Speed Reading Mark PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Teachers say a Pittsburgh high school boy can read 10,000 words a minute, has been clocked at 30,000 on several occasions and once hit 40 000 words per minute. The ability of Bill Carmack, 17, of the city's Mt. Washington section, was discovered last spring while he was taking a speed reading course at South Hills High School. In a copyright story today, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette quoted school principal Roy T. Mattern as saying: "He's just one of those people who can glance at a page and tell you what's on it." Last week Bill demonstrated his reading ability for a reporter. The boy was handed a magazine story about Alexander the Great. Bill started readng. The reporter opened his notebook to record the time Bill started and the boy said: "I'm finished." Fifteen seconds had elapsed. The article was 1,500 words long. The boy then correctly summarized Alexander's military strategy and gave two dates correctly. The 10,000 words a minute is about 40 times faster than normal. At top speed, Bill could breeze through about SO newspaper col limns in one mnute. His reading teacher, Elsie M. Murphy, said she gives tests after each reading to see if the students understand what they read. Bill consistently scored 80 and 90 per cent," she said. However, he read George Orwell's novel "Animal Farm" in a See Amazingly—Page 2; Col. I Heat's Off, No School At Mansfield SC MANSFIELD, Pa. (AP)-There is no school at Mansfield State College this week—thanks to a lack of heat. Thomas Costello, acting president at Mansfield, said Saturday efforts to expand the heating facilities on campus would leave two dormitories without heat for most of the week.

Senator Opposed To N-Treaty WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. A. Wills Robertson, D-Va., said today that ratification of the limited nuclear test ban treaty could confront the United States with "terrifying blackmail" by the Soviet Union. Robertson, in a prepared Senate speech, said that he would violate the dictates of his conscience to support the pact. On the other side of the debate, Sen. John J. Sparkman, D-Ala., declared that "if this treaty doesn't work, then a future nuclear war will in all probability •solve* our problems." Support for the treaty also came from Sens. Neuberger, D-Ore., McGovern, D-S.D. Robertson said he believes that as a result of the treaty "the Soviet Union will first gain equality with us in atomic weapons." Maurine B. and George Quints Going Strong By DAN PERKES ABERDEEN, S. D. (AP) — The Fischer quintuplets, going strong on tiny feedings of sugar water, were doing fine today as they neared the end of the 72-hour period considered critical by doctors. The four girls and a boy may be switched to a formula diet today, Dr. James Berbos, who delivered the babies, said. The quints were born early Saturday to Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Fischer. The babies rounded out their first 48 hours of life early today. Fischer, 38, busied himself getting his other five youngsters ready for school this morning and milked his two cows. He didn't plan to go back to his job as a billing clerk for a wholesale grocery firm just yet. "He can take as long as he needs," said a sympathetic official of the Nash-Finch Co., Fischer's employer. Mrs. Fischer, 30, continued to rest in her hospital room. Late Sunday, Dr. Berbos reported that the four girls and a .boy were being fed about four cubic centimeters of sugar water every two hours. Berbos, who has delivered 3,607 children in his 16 years as a physician, said both mother and children were doing extremely well. The first 72 hours were considered to be the most dangerous for the newborn quints, but there was no sign of trouble. Gifts of money and merchandise continued to pour in for the family, and Dr. Berbos added one of his own. "I don't think I'll charge them anything," Berbos said. He indicated that St. Luke's hospital, where the infants were born, also would forget about a bill. Dr. Berbos told a news conference that he hadn't delivered any more babies since the birth of the quintuplets. Looking at a score of newsmen crowded into the hospital lounge, Berbos smiled and said: "They've all been scared off."

(AP) • Against a background of violence and death, a special federal grand jury was ordered today to investigate racial outbreaks that continue to plague this city. U.S. Dist. Judge Clarence W. Allgood in his charge to the grand jury emphasized the dynamite explosion at a Negro church Sun. day which killed four children and injured 23 other persons. In Washington, President Ken« nedy expressed "outrage and ;rief" over the bombing. Tho President said that he hoped th« :ragedy would awaken the nation :o "the folly of racial injustice and hatred and violence." A calm prevailed in Birmingham this morning, especially around the church and the three recently integrated schools. Thera were no reports of violence. FBI agents and bomb experts conducted an exhaustive search tor. clues at the church. Three hundred state troopers and 500 National Guardsmen remained on alert, ready to back up Birmingham police if fresh violence erupted. The bomb last was described by Allgood, a native of Birmingham, as a "mockery of our laws— a mockery by those who would cut the very roots of our American system of justice." The bombing brought swift condemnation from national Negro leaders and state local officials. It was deplored in the U.S. Senate at a tragic blow to raca relations. A plea was founded for quicker action on civil rights egislation. Senate Majority Leader Mika Mansfield of Montana called the bombing "reprehensible and outrageous." Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy canceled two speaking engagements in Philadelphia to stay in his Washington office during the racial trouble in Birmingham. Birmingham's mayor, Albert Boutwell, said he couldn't under* stand such viciousness and Gov. George C. Wallace called for the apture of the bombers.
