Mrs. Sarah Carter, Eureka, told the State Council of Education here that this week's one-day strike in New York resulted in "missed educational opportunily, damaged properly, and pupil and community disrespect for their picketing teachers." She said that California teachers have achieved gains in salaries, retirement bcnefils, and tenure protection without .resorting to strikes or the threat of strikes. She spoke to 400 clecled delegates meeting on the firsl day of a two-day semi-annual nicel- ing lo discuss various odur.i- liomtl issues.

These are two points in a four- part proposal which also provides [or internationalization of Allied access routes to Red - encircled West Berlin and an exchange of jledges not to provide nuclear weapons to other countries. U.S. officials said the proposals will be laid before Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin by Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk conference scheduled here for Monday afternoon. Rusk hopes that the Western concessions can be exchanged for an easing of Soviet pressure on Berlin. The Communists are demanding lhat the Weslern Allies ;ive up their occupation status in heir sector of the city. The U. S. plan stops short of granting diplomatic recognition to Communist Edst Germany, which Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev has asked. But it would give the -led German regime an increased voice in control of traffic between the city and Western Germany and also set up East-West German committees to r e g u l a t e cultural and other rela- rade, .ions. The non - aggression p l e d g e vould stem from an exchange of declaration between the NATO lowers and the members of the lommunist Warsaw pact to respect 'existing borders along the Iron Curtain, sources said.

Telephoto) Giants Bend To JFK Administration Wins All Out Fight To Hold Line On U.S. Steel Prices WASHINGTON (UPI) -- President Kennedy's unprecedented three-day blitzkrieg has forced the zure ]iants of the steel industry to abandon their price increase. Kennedy solved his 1 biggest domestic crisis yet by directing the administration in all-out combat against the ?6-a-ton increase until, one by one, the price-lifters" retreated. He accepted their unconditional surrender with a statement of mild praise that contrasted sharp- y with the furious charges of "irresponsible defiance" that he hurled at them on Wednesday. The revocation of the $6-a-ton increase was regarded by Kennedy forces as a major step toward control of inflation through a sys- .em of voluntary wage-price restraint. Ii means prices of new cars, new homes, refrigerators, washers, dryers, tin cans and countless other consumer goods will not be 'orced up by higher steel costs low. Some of Kennedy's closest ad- I'isers were amazed by .the sudden collapse of the two biggest iirms -- U.S. Steel and Bethlehem --after an open split in industry ranks. It · contrasted with steelmakers' Grand National Opens 5-Day Run SAN FRANICSCO (UPI) -The 1962 edition of the Grand National J ivr'-'ock Exhibition opens a five- day run at Ihe Cow Palace today.

Kennedy Welcomes News The President, who received the welcome news aboard Ihe Navy warship Northampton as it started out on maneuvers from Norfolk, Va., said the American people were gratified by Bethlehem and U.S. Steel's decision. "In taking the action at this time, they are serving Ihe public interest and their actions will assist our common objective of strengthening our country and our economy." he said. Kennedy had said the United Slates could not keep price stability at home and compete in foreign markets if the induslry charged more than an average $150 a ton for steel. . Despite the lurnabout, Ally. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy said he ivill continue to press a federal grand jury investigation of steel pricing to see if it violated criminal antitrust laws. Some legal experts believed thai charges of collusion would be difficult to sustain in court now that the increases have been cancelled. This strengthened the possibility that the jury's inquiry would con- ccnlralc on whether U.S. Steel Corp. exercises monopoly conlrol over prices. Another grand jury already is investigating to see if antitrusl violations exist in the sale of sice! castings -- a fraction of the industry's operations but an obvious lest of pricing policies. Others Followed Suit Tuesday night's announcement by U.S. Steel Hint it would raise prices across the hoard was fol- Ihe next day by similar announcements from Republic Steel, .limes l.aughlin, Bethlehem. Youngslown Sheet Tube, National Slccl, I'illsburgli Steel nncl Wheeling Slccl. The revolt begun when Inlnnr Steel Co., a Chicago-based firm ranked eighth in production, refused to join the parade anc vowed-lo hold prices steady. Kai ser Stejl Corp., a West -Coast firm, joined wilh Inland as hold outs. Other firms -- Armco Steel, Al legheny Ludlum and Great Lakes Steel -- stayed uncommittcc throughout the three-day drama. Sizing up the split, Belhlehem buckled and rescinded its raise. This East Coast firm does a big business wilh the Pentagon, especially in ils shipbuilding division and may have been influenced by the govcrnmenrs threat to boycott fiigh-priced steel. "They'll all have to go back,' said an elated Robert F. Kennedy when be was notified. They all die --except Wheeling Steel, which promised a statement today.

Ransomed Captives Welcomed By 20,000 Happy Countrymen MIAMI Him -- SIxly wounded and Ml ransomed captives of last year's Cuban invasion returned to freedom and a tumultuous welcome today from 20,000 of their refugee countrymen. As the four-engincd Pan Ameri. can World Airways airliner which brought the freed prisoners from Havana rolled to a stop, the happy :hrong broke into cheers and [ears. At the forefront, 15 members of the "Brigada Asalto," those of the original invasion foree of some 1,500 \vho managed to escape Fidel Castro's militia at the Bay of Pigs beachhead, stood proudly be. neath their gold and blue flag. Leading the small band of Brigade 250C, the attack force, limped Rolando Novoa, a "crutch in one land and the brigade flag in the other.' He lost a foot in the inva- iion nearly a year ago, on April 17. Typical of the scores of families and relatives waiting for the prisoners was..Mrs.. .Juan Figueras, wrio brought'her Infant daughter, born since (he and never seen by her father. Juan Figueras .was one of those returning today, and he was coming home without a let. Alan Stewart, 'port authority director, surveyed the huge international terminal and estimated the crowd at 20,000. More than fi.OOO pressed onto two observation decks to get a glimpse of the returning prisoners. Dr. Jose Miro Cardona and Antonio de Varona, leaders of the Cuban Revolutionary Front which directed the abortive invasion, were among scores of Cuban ref- jgee officials at the airport. Members of the Cuban Family Committee which bargained with Castro for ransom of the prisoners said the 60 arriving today had been picked by their comrades in prison as the first to be sent home because their wounds were the most serious. There were number of amputees among them, the committee said, and others were suffering badly from shrapnel and bullet wounds. One man had a bullet in his head. The committee said there were other wounded and ill captives re maining in Cuban prisons, among them 31 suffering with jaundice. The cost in U.S. dollars, which arc to be deposited in a Canadian bank to secure the captives' free- ·Jom, had not been reported before the plane left Havana at 11:07 a.m. EST. Castro had set a collective price tag of $62 million in cash for all 1,170 invasion prisoners. Their individual ran- son ranged from ?25,000 to $500,000 each. Six ambulances and a group of limousines waited lo take the freed prisoners around the concourse in front of the big crowd and thence to Mercy Hospital on the shore of Biscayne Bay near downtown Miami. At the hospital were 25 physicians, 50 nurses and nurses aids and seven Spanish-speaking priests lo receive the wounded and i! Two prison doctors and the four members of the negotiating team were the only passengers booked on the special commercial flight to Miami. It left at 11:06 a.m., an hour behind schedule. The departing group included a man with a bullet still in his head, several amputees, a patient recuperating from heart surgery and a man in need of a gall bladder operation. Six more persons were added to the original group of 54 Friday when Uie negotiators managed to obtain more scats on the morning flight out of Havana. The delegation said it would issue a statement on the negotiations with Castro when it arrive; in Miami. How much the delegation had to pay for release of the prisoners was not disclosed before the group left Havana. The shipment was understood to include some men in the $50.000 and $100,000 classification. After the captives were convicted and sentenced to prison terms in a mass trial earlier this month, Castro asked fees ranging from $25,000 to $500.000 each for four categories of prisoners.

Shops and cafes in downtown Algiers at first opened for business, but by 10 a.m. their European proprietors had closed them again. There was no indication how long the strike would last. The city's buses were not running, although electricity and telephones were working normally. Privately-owned businesses in Constantine also closed up. Most administrative offices were functioning. The prefecture of police in Constantine reported a high rale of absenteeism. The strike also was being observed in Oran and Bone.
