Spring Choral Concert to Be Given Friday Kuemper High School's first annual spring choral concert will be held in the Kuemper gymnasium at 8 p.m. Friday, May 10. The program will be presented by 392 students. An innovation will be the seating of the audience on chairs on the gym floor facing the bleachers, where the various choruses will be spotlighted for their individual numbers. The program will open with the 142-voice sophomore chorus singing "Cry Out and Shout." The Girls' Glee club will do "Fac ut Ardeat" from Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. The 105-voice group will have string accompaniment. This piece is characterized by an energetic rhythmic drive. A special part of the concert, "Memories, will feature the 78 voices of the senior choir. They will recall outstanding events of their senior year, including homecoming and "Sing Out, Sweet Land". Soloists for the evening are Mar- ,gie Foley—"Casey Jones", Raymond Meyer s—"B less This House", and Mary Fran Tierney— "Good Night, My Someone" assisted by the Girls' Glee Club. Ensembles will present a group of folk songs. The senior triple trio will sing "Jacob's Ladder", and the senior double quartet will do "Sloop John B".

Unless Test Ban Negotiated This Year- Kennedy Sees New Round of Nuclear Testing WASHINGTON (AP)—President Kennedy predicts a new round of nuclear testing by the United States and the Soviet Union unless a test ban treaty is negotiated this year—which he doubts. If the prediction conies true, Kennedy told his news conference Wednesday, it "would be a great disaster for the interests of all concerned." Recalling that he saw brightening prospects for a ban last December, Kennedy said there has been no sense of movement since then. "I am not hopeful at all," he said, and expressed fear that progress must come soon or "perhaps the genie is out of the bottle and we will not ever get him back in." Kennedy's pessimism on this subject was matched by an equal measure of optimism about efforts to end what he termed "an ugly situation in Birmingham, Ala." Declaring that racial strife in Birmingham damaged the city and the nation, Kennedy said in an opening statement that responsible efforts by white and Negro leaders had prompted Birmingham Businessmen to pledge "substantial steps" to meet the "justifiable needs of the Negro community." But he said "much remains to be settled before the situation can be termed satisfactory." Kennedy said that, in the absence of violations of federal law, the federal government had limited its role in Birmingham to that of mediator. But he said the situation could be quite different if two Negro graduate students win entry this summer to the Huntsville branch of the University of Alabama. "This, of course, does involve the federal government," he said. And, reminded that Gov. George Wallace has threatened to physically and personally bar integration at the university, Kennedy said he hoped everyone would obey court orders "whether they agree with them or not." In a 30-minule session that touched often on racial matters, Kennedy said the bettering of race relations is not a problem for the South alone. Asked if he would endorse the move by white and Negro families in Knoxville, Tenn., to visit each other in their homes, Kennedy said: "I think it would be very helpful, and you can start right here in Washington, D.C., where this is greatly needed." Two overseas crises also were discussed: Kennedy said that while Soviet Premier Khrushchev has reaf- firmed a pledge to support a neutral and independent Laos, a recent attack on International Control Commission helicopters by the Pathet Lao "indicates that they are not at the present time living up to this commitment." He said he hopes Khrushchev can do better than that. Asked if economic or diplomatic sanctions should be used against the Haitian regime of Francois Duvalier, Kennedy said the Organization of American States is doing right by sending a special group that will try to keep peace between the Dominican Republic and neighboring Haiti. Finally, Kennedy was asked about one potential crisis and still another that is fast fading. The impact of recent political changes in the Middle East cannot yet be assessed, the President said, but the United States will support the security of Israel and her Arab neighbors, try to limit the arms race in the area and discourage Communist penetration. Kennedy hopes to cover "the entire waterfront" in a weekend conference at Hyannisport, Mass, with Canadian Prime Minister Lester Pearson. The "waterfront" includes such items as defense, trade, and investment on which Kennedy and Pearson's predecessor, John G. Diefenbaker, were in sharp disagreement. Administration, Clay at Odds on Foreign Aid WASHINGTON (AP) — The Kennedy administration is making it known that it does not agree with Gen. Lucius D. Clay's recommendations for further cuts in foreign aid program. • For David Bell, foreign aid chief, has written a memorandum stating that the entire $4.5 billion President Kennedy has requested for foreign assistance in the coming year is needed, despite Clay's urging for additional reductions. Clay, chairman of a presidential advisory committee on foreign aid, has been testifying at congressional committee hearings on the Kennedy request for the coming fiscal year starting July 1. Clay has said the amount could 8 Times Htrald, Carroll, la. Thursday, May 9, 1963 be shaved to $4.3 billion, or perhaps to $4 billion, if certain economies are made in the Alliance for Progress program. Officials said Wednesday night that Bell had sent copies of the memo to Secretary of State Dean Rusk and other high ranking authorities in the State and Defense Departments and hi Bell's own Agency for International Development. The reason for Bell's document, it was stated, is not to take issue with Clay,* but to explain to responsible officials what AID's stand is on a foreign aid figure and why. —U.S. Air Force Photo?

That's probably why so many folks are asking what is the best way to get rid of them. Whatever you do, don't try to "dig" them out. Digging dandelions is more than just a lot of work—it's also quite a waste of time. Dandelions (and many other lawn weeds) send a long root, called a tap root, down into the soil—frequently to a depth of 18-24 inches. These tap roots defy complete removal. Digging or cutting removes only the top portion at best. The remaining part can then send up a new plant, replacing the one removed. But tough as dandelions seem to be, they're actually easy to control. There's a product called BONUS that we've found best for the job. It's put out by Scotts, the lawn people. BONUS is a dry applied product that is easily and quickly spread. The dandelions (and other lawn weeds such as plantain, buckhorn, etc.) gradually start to curl up and wither away. One day they're gone, root and all. While all this is going on, BONUS also gives your grass the controlled feeding it needs so much at this time of year. Makes your lawn thicker and greener. That's probably why so many folks use BONUS each year. It lives up to its name. If you'd like to try BONUS yourself, or if •you'd like the answers to any lawn questions, just phone me at 3385.
