OTTAWA HERALD VOL..67 NO. 31 OTTAWA, KANSAS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1963 7 CENTS TWELVE PAGES School Bond Proposal Floored Again The proposed $1,680,000 school bond issue was turned down yesterday for the second time by voters of Ottawa School District 30. The difference of 158 more "no" votes was the same as that in the proposal's first defeat on Nov. 6, 1962. There were, however, 620 less votes cast on the bond issue yesterday than in the general election. The "no" votes exceeded the "yes" in seven city precincts and in the balloting by persons living in District 30 but outside Ottawa. Four precincts favored the proposal. That's the way it was Nov. 6, the same four for and the same seven against. (The accompanying table shows yesterday's voting by precincts.) Again the northernmost precincts, with voting headquarters at North Baptist Church and Lincoln School, went solidly against the bonds, proposed to pay for a new senior high building and to improve the existing junior- senior high structures. Ward 5 voters, with polls at Garfield, registered strong approval for the bonds. The District 30 board of education met this afternoon, and a statement is expected from the members. Legislators Pay Bill Up To State Senate TOPEKA (AP) - The long- awaited salary bill for the Kansas Legislature was to make its appearance today in the Kansas Senate In addition the legislators would receive an allowance of $50 per month for out-of-session expenses. The allowance would not be paid for January, February or March of a year in which a regular session is held, nor in January of the year a budget session is held. The bill provides for payment of mileage at 7 cents a mile for trips between the legislators' homes and Topeka by the regularly travelled way, up to a maximum of 6 trips for a regular session and up to a maximum of 3 trips for a special or budget session. The mileage would be paid only for trips actually made. In recent years, Kansas legislators have drawn $5 per legislative day salary and $7 per calendar day expense money up to a maximum of $300 in salary for a regular session and $150 for a budget session. Mileage has been paid for one round trip at a rate of 15 cents a mile. Kansas voters at the November election adopted a new constitutional amendment directing the legislators to fix their pay by law instead of by constitutional provision. The bill is apparently the result of nearly two weeks of discussion by the legislators. The Senate Fees, Salaries and Mileage Committee drafted the proposal for introduction at the 1:30 p. m. Senate session. The bill calls for a salary of $10 per calendar day up to a maximum of $900 for a regular session and up to a top of $300 for a budget or special session. The bill also provides for an expense allowance of $15 per calendar day not to exceed $1,350 for a regular session or $450 for a budget or special session.

(AP)-Prime Vlinister Fidel Castro today sounded his most aggressive call yet 'or revolution in Latin America and declared world communism must heal its split to help the masses rise. "The liberating movement is fighting . . this fight forces of the Socialist revolution," he shouted in a televised speech which lasted nearly three hours. Castro's call for Communist unity and Latin-American uprisings came as Soviet Premier Khrushchev issued the same appeal for union in a major speech at Berlin, but Khrushchev said social ism's principal task is to seek world peace. Castro told his audience—most ly women from many Latin na tions—its task is to lead the conti nent in Cuba-style revolutions. "In the world in which the Amer ican woman lives, the woman necessarily has to be a revolution ary," he declared. Warns Of U.S. Nuclear Might BERLIN (AP)—Soviet Premier nists who have accused him of Khrushchev told his Communist comrades today the United States las 40,000 atomic or nuclear war- leads and Communist policy cannot be based on war. If all the American bombs were dropped, he said, 700 million to 800 million people would be killed and whole nations wiped out. Departing from his text, Khrushchev spoke of the Soviet Union's giant nuclear bomb, implying it could be used only against the United States. "Dear comrades, now I tell you a secret," he said. "Our scientists have developed a new 100-megaton bomb. This bomb could not be used in Western Europe because it would hit France and Germany and you too. This bomb could only be used overseas against a potential aggressor." In a wide-ranging speech to the sixth Communist party congress of East Germany, Khrushchev thus answered the Chinese Comu- Ottawans May Share Gas Refund Ottawa is one of 300 cities in Kansas and Missouri listed to share in a $12,626,000 refund on gas service from customers companies of .the Cities. ; ServiceJlas firm. "Just who will get refunds, we don't know," Robert Grabham, Gas Service Company manager, said today. Ottawa is among the Kansas communities slated for payment. The Cities Service office in Oklahoma City announced the refund to 73 customer firms in Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas and Nebraska. The Oklahoma office said the payments were made possible by refunds received by Cities Service from certain producers of natural gas in the Hugoton field in Kansas. The refunds resulted from a settlement of litigation which began in 1955 involving prices charged for gas produced in the Hugoton field. The largest refund, $10,109,900, went to the Gas Service Company, Kansas City, Mo. An Award For Kansas TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas today received an award of achievement from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Washington D.C., for the state's high school driver education program.

NEW YORK (AP) - Publisher representatives walked out of a negotiating session today declaring that representatives of the striking Typographical Union were not negotiating. Amory H. Bradford, chairman of the Publishers Association of New York City's negotiating committee, declared: "We are ready to resume meetings when the union is ready to negotiate." However,'he added, "We are always ready to meet at the call of the mediators. Bertram Powers, president of striking Local 6 of the International Typographical Union, and his negotiating team, left the joint meeting shortly afterward and went to a union room in the hotel for a caucus.

All but 60 of the increased number of offenses involved larceny of property valued at less than $5Q. to demonstrate being afraid of a "paper tiger"— the United States—when he backed down on Cuba. Pouring scorn on Peking's war- and-peace theories, Khrushchev warned the East German Communist party's sixth congress that communist cannot win in a nuclear war. Such a conflict, he said, would bring unimaginable destruction and death in the world. Speaking clearly in the context of his argument with Peking over war and peace as it applies to Communist expansion, Khrushchev pleaded that the fight for peace was the "prime task for socialism." He departed from his text and waved his arms as he declared: "Russian Communists never started a war to carry communism to victory. Some who call themselves Marxists and Leninists want to win Socialist victory by war." Dropping his voice to make his point clear, he warned: "The United States has 40,000 atomic or nuclear warheads. What would happen if one let all those bombs come down on humanity? Seven hundred to eight hundred million people would perish. Countries would be rubbed out. "Would socialism win by a thermonuclear war? No. You cannot build socialism in an atomic- infested territory. "A 100-megaton bomb — on France or West Germany — would hit you. This I only say to show you the effects. We tried out this bomb and that is what our scientists have calculated." In his major policy speech in East Berlin, the Soviet premier also: Form Public Employes Association TOPEKA (AP) — Organization of an association of public em- ployes in Kansas was announced today with offices to be located here.

(AP).- A Negro student won a court fight today for admission to all-while Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina. The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision in the case of Harvey B. Gantt, 19, of Charleston, S.C. The ruling of the three-judge court was unanimous and the actual writer of the opinion was not identified. It was signed only "per curiam," meaning "by the court." The opinion, only a week after arguments were heard, upsets the decision by Judge C.C. Wyche of the U.S. District Court for Western South Carolina. Wyche ruled last month that Gantt had not proved by the evidence that he was denied admission solely because of his race. Attorneys for Gantt, who made his bid to enter Clemson as a transfer student from Iowa State University at Ames, had argued it "is no accident" that "South Carolina is now the only Southern state which has not, either by court order or voluntarily, admitted Negro students to its institutions of higher learning attended by white persons." Gantl was not available for comment. At Columbia, S.C., Gov. Donald Russell said he assumed that the college "will initiate such further court procedures as it can," Russell took office only Tuesday. The college contended Gantl failed to comply with the rules and regulations for admission and to complete his application. II argued also that Gantt had not been denied admission because of his race. The opinion sends the case back to the lower court with instructions to provide for Gantt's admission. The court ordered that admission be in time for the opening of the next semester in February. Called for establishment of West Berlin as a free city guaranteed by the United Nations with foreign troops remaining "for a certain time" under the U.N. flag. Claimed he was victorious in the Cuban crisis, prevented the United States from attacking the island and thereby kept communism alive there. Called for conclusion of a German peace treaty which "will not bring gains to one side and losses to the other." But he set no deadline, saying the Berlin wall had made a treaty a less pressing problem. Assured the East German Communists Germany will be reunified as a Communist state and anti-Communist forces in West Germany "will be swept away." The Soviet leader in his 2V&-hour speech scornfully reviewed Peking's arguments against his policies. He denied that he had turned soft under U.S. pressure. He stressed again the need for Communist unity. "In the relation between Communist parties one has to show patience. Discussions are possible but one has to approach our co- mon goal patiently," he said. He rejected Red China's demand for a world meeting of and for a world meeting of Communist leaders to air Moscow-Peking differences. Wu Hsui Chuan, the Red Chinese delegate, sat expressionless through Khrushchev's speech. In the rising ovation at the end, Wu stood with his ars stiffly at his sides. Khrushchev ridiculed the Red Chinese idea that peaceful coexistence meant giving up the class straggle in capitalist lands, calling thai Peking idea "a stupid nursery maid's tale." Khrushchev had kind words for the Yugoslavs, who are sitting in a Soviet-bloc party congress as full participants for the first time since the Stalin-Tito break in 1948. "There are different concepts in various Socialist countries. We are in one phase of development of a Socialist world system. If there are differences of opinion, we won't excommunicate people thinking differently," he said. "We have differences with Yugoslavia, but it is still a Socialist country. We have differences with the Albanians but they are still building socialism in their state." This sounded like an appeal to the Chinese Communists to drop their argument with Moscow.
