Negro Students Stage Walkout At Two Schools Hart Continues Hearings On Auto Industry WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Philip A. Hart said today auto makers have agreed to increase layments to dealers so car buy- rs can have a better chance to let the warranty repairs they aay for when they buy a car. Hart said Ford. Chrysler and General Motors also had started action in Detroit to put more mphasis on making new cars easier to fix. But that has not been enough, jeveral witnesses before Hart's Senate antitrust subcommittee said in their prepared testimony. Hart, a critic of the automobile industry In the car repair hearings, describes the Detroit steps as a start toward solving ;he problems. Edwin J. Mullane, a Ford dealer from Newark. N.J., said factory reimbursement for war ranty repairs still is inadequate. "The dealer, who has been much maligned in this warranty crossfire, has not been given the tools to make good on the promises of the manufacturer." Mullane said. The dealers said they could not get enough money from Detroit, who pay dealers with set hourly amounts for each job. Dealers said they ended up paying higher wages to get experienced mechanics, and the reimbursement equation did not fit, Must Show Records LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The state Highway Commission has been given until May 5 to produce its records on asphalt purchases for a 10-year period beginning Jan. 1, 1957. Federal District. Judge Gordon E. Young issued the order in connection with the commission's two asphalt price-fixing suits against five oil companies FORREST CITY. Ark. (AP) --Two all-Negro high schools closed about 90 minutes early Monday after a large percentage of the 1,500 students refused to return to classes after their lunch break. School officials said the walkout took place at the Lincoln Junior and Senior High Schools. No school official could be reached for comment about the walkout, but the schools were reportedly to open on schedule today. The Rev. J. F. Cooley, a civil rights leader, said some students told him the walkout occurred because of a number of reasons. He named the St. Francis County Grand Jury's investigation into a March 20 disturbance, his own dismissal as an instructor at Lincoln Junior High and the indefinite sentences given some students in connection with the disturbance last month. SCHOOL DAMAGED It was Cooley's dismissal that apparently triggered the disturbance in which about 200 of the 900 students at Lincoln Junior High heavily damaged the school. Eleven youths were arrested in connection with the distub ance and four were given indefinite sentences at the Boys' Industrial School. The grand jury was em- paneled h e r e Monday by Circuit Judge Elmo Taylor who did not give the group any specific instructions. He told the grand jury, the first in the county in eight years, that its function was "to investigate violations of crimi- nal law and to probe into conditions existing in regard to law e n f o r c e ment in the county." JURY EMPANELED Deputy Prosecutor Fletcher Long. Sheriff Clarence Montgomery and County Judge W. B. Hamilton had asked that a grand jury be empaneled to in vestigate the March 20 disturbance at the junior high school. The juy includes 13 whites and three Negroes. The school walkout apparent ly began Monday after William I r v i n g , superintendent ol schools, asked authorities to in vestigate reports of a demonstration or boycott. Officials at the school, how ever, told officers they felt they had the situation under contro' and asked the officers to leave Prague Reformists Hope New Leader Can Gain Concessions PRAGUE (AP) -- Czechoslovakia's new Communist party chief, Gustav Husak. went to Moscow today, and his party's reform faction hoped he would return with some Soviet concessions.
