William Laduke, who said he had resigned voluntarily Oct. 1 from employment at the school, said in Tucson :Friday, that--there w e r e "wholesale escapes, widespread vandalism and total lack of discipline" at .the school. Dr. Nelson said that in" a written report given the board by Dr. Everett L. Edmondson, superintendent of the school, it was stated Laduke had been given his choice of resigning or being fired for drunkenness, " The chairman said that on tlie ·whole the boys are much happier Grant, but that it-was not|at the corrective institution now than they have been at times in the past and that' discipline is good.

Invasion Is Confirmed The : official: announcement confirmed reports vof- a" Communist invasion of Tibet.which had been circulating here for six weeks. The Tibetan .government has sent an j urgent plea to New Delhi for "diplomatic help"--intercession with the Communist Peiping government to call off its legions.
