Sees Disaster Potential In Slum Area Schools By LARRY OSIUS WASHINGTON (AP) - Both money and a realistic approach to the task of slum-area schools are needed to head off an impending explosion, Dr. James B. Conant says. Conant, former president of Harvard University, expressed the view in t new book, "Slums and Suburbs," published Monday by McGraw-Hill. It is an expansion of an earlier study he made of junior high school education in the public schools. "The building up of a mass of unemployed and frustrated Negro youth in congested areas of a city CUBAN REFUGEES — These women and children are part of the 45 Cuban refugees rescued by the Coast Guard from Cay Sal, tiny Bahamas island, and -brought to Miami, Fla. They landed on island after their tiny boat began leaking during in escape voyage from Cuba. The 21 men aboard the boat were hoini* questioned by immigration authorities. Lillian Reis Case To Jury POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A!B. Rich. Rich has testified at all s a social phenomenon that may je compared to the piling up of nflammable material in an emp- y building in a city block," he Qsaid. Potentialities for trouble — indeed possibilities of disaster—are surely there." The main problem in city slum schools, he said, is to offer courses that have some relationship to the students. He stressc?' vocational education. "Foreign languages in grade seven or algebra in grade eight .have little place in a school in which half the pupils in that grade read at the fourth grade level or below," Conant declared. Conant also criticized those who "have placed a taboo on the use of the word 'Negro.' I think this has proved to be a great mistake. How can we improve a situation if we are deprived by terminology from knowing what the situation really is?" He said some cities have pres- I sured Negroes to attend "essen- Itially white schools," adding: "Those which have not done so, like Chicago, are more likely to make progress in improving Negro education. It is my belief that satisfactory education can be provided in an all-Negro school through the expenditure of more money for needed staff and facilities." But Conant said he does not approve gerrymandering school district lines which "amounts to separating pupils solely on the basis of race." An allied problem, Conant said is opportunity. Once the aspirations and technical training for slum youth have been upgraded, there must be jobs for them. He noted: "It is far more dif ficult in many communities to obtain admission to an appren tice program which involves un ion approval than to get into the most selective medical school in the nation."

(AP) —The USS Ethan Allen, largest of the Polaris-firing atomic submarines, scored a success on its first underwater firing of one of the rockets. The Ethan Allen launched the Polaris from 90 feet beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean about 300 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral Monday. The Defense Department has a policy of not releasing information on Polaris submarine shots, but sources close to the project re,_ ported all test objectives were met on the 1,200-mile flight. Five earlier nuclear subs are now on station, each with 16 nuclear-tipped Polarises. The Ethan Allen is the first submarine built to handle the advanced Polaris A2 model, with a range of 1,725 miles. The others carry the 1,380-mile Al rocket. chase the Celebrity Room night club in Philadelphia. Miss Reis once danced in the chorus line of the club. In his nearly three-hour summation, Asst. Dist. Atty. Calvin J. Friedberg told the jury that Miss Reis had "planned it, aided and abetted it and shared in the proceeds." She is implicated up to her neck," Friedber said. Friedberg said that cash gifts which Miss Reis received over a two-year period from Clyde (Bing) Miller, the only remaining defendant in the case who faces trial next, did not exceed $20,000. Miller, accused of tipping off Miss Reis that Rich had a large amount of money in his safe, testified for the prosecution that he (Miller) had lavished more than $100,000 in gifts and cash on her for the opportunity to meet her secretly in hotel rooms twice a week. Defense attorney John E. Lavelle contended in his summation that Miller had plotted the burglary, that his testimony was the result of hate "because she threw him over." Lavelle said Miss Reis had got the money to buy the night club from her stepfather, Sidney Reiskin, a New York jeweler, and from cash given her oy Miller. Bigger Federal Deficit Seen SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Secretary of the Treasury Douglas Dillon today broke the news of a further expected increase in the federal deficit. This year's budget, he said, will be "somewhat more than $6.75 billion" out of balance. Dillon said that record harvests —requiring huge farm price support outlays—and the growing postal deficit have caused the red ink to run deeper than expected. But Dillon, in an address for Hie annual meeting of the American Bankers Association, discounted the possibility that the excess of federal spending over receipts would in itself cause inflation. He also renewed the Ken nedy administration's promise of a balanced budget for fiscal 1963, starting next July 1. Bashir To Receive New Pickup DALLAS, Tex. (AP) — Bashir Ahmad, Pakistan's most famous camel cart driver, will get a new pickup truck when he visits the Texas State Fair today as a guest of Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. The smiling little man with the flowing black moustache was to arrive this morning from Johnson's central Texas ranch, where he got the royal carpet treatment received by head of slates. His first stop today will be at a supermarket in suburban Irving. Then he will visit a motor freight terminal — the equivalent of a camel wagon yard in Pakistan. After the State Fair visit he will tour Six Flags Over Texas an entertainment center between Dallas and Fort Worth. Later today Bashir flies to Kansas City, Mo., for a tour of the American Royal Livestock Show and a visit with former President Harry S. Truman. Bashir, 48, grinned and often clapped his hands in pleasure as Johnson personally conducted him on a tour of central Texas Monday. "When good fortune catches hold of a person, good fortune takes him all the way," said Bashir. Johnson was on a tour of Pakistan when he stopped the camel driver in a crowd, shook hands with him, and invited him to this country. Bashir promptly accepted. A group of American businessmen made his trip to the United States possible under the People-to-People program. S.45 STRETCH COVER Install it in seconds! Machine- washable. Rayon- cotton.
