People In the News Gromyko To Sign Agreement WASHINGTON - Secretary of State William P. Rogers and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko are to sign later this month — probably on Sept. 30 — parallel agreements for the joint handling of nuclear accidents. The accords were negotiated at the strategic arms limitation talks in Helsinki. Both Rogers and Gromyko are to attend the session of the United Nations General Assem bly opening in New York next Tuesday, but American officials said that the agreements would be signed away from the United Nations because they are bilateral accords between the United State3 and the Soviet Union.

"The man behind me was an inmate I had known for some time," said guard Richard Fargo, who was a hostage for 98 hours. He was recalling the moment Monday morning when leaders of the rebelling prisoners ordered the slaying of hostages before state troopers, prison guards and sheriff's deputies closed in. "He whispered in my ear that I would not be hurt. He was supposed to stick a knife between my ribs. He stuck the knife just to prick the skin and said, 'Now don't tell them I didn't kill you.' Then he threw me backwards and covered my body with his," said Fargo. It was the prisoner's last act. "When it was over," said Fargo, "he was dead." The executioner assigned to guard Elmer Huehn told him: "I don't have the heart to do it. I'm only going to prick you." The executioner drew blood and then fell on top of him to hide him from other convicts. "This wonderful Puerto Rican saved my life," said Huehn, but he mourned other hostages who were killed-.. Philip Watkins, another guard who was a hostage had a similar experience. Mrs. Karen S.

Michelle, whose family moved to Hutchinson from Moundridge four years ago, was walking to Union Valley School where she was a third grader. Sheriff's deputy Marlin Davis quoted Mrs. Whited as saying she saw Michelle along the right side of the road "half running, half skipping."

Police were telephoned shortly before 8 p.m. by a priest at the church who told them the boy had climbed to the church bell tower by way of steps inside the building. He was carrying a bundle of belongings. Firemen were summoned whsn the boy climbed outside to the church roof. Fire Marshal Dick McLeskey said the police also had a report the boy was carrying candles and might attempt to set the church on fire. No candles were found the boy's possession, however.

No Promotion Please WASHINGTON - Amid reports that the administration is displeased with the toughened regulatory posture of the Federal Trade Commission, FTC Commissioner Miles W. Kil- Patrick announced Monday that he is not interested in promotion to either a federal judgeship or an ambassadorship. Miles •• Kilpat rick The Philadelphia lawyer began a seven-year term in the post in August of 1970 and can' ' /not; be fired. ?His vigorous en^ 'frireement,' particularly against ' allegedly deceptive advertising, has drawn praise from consumer advocates, including Ralph Nader. A nti-Discrimination Law Claims City 'Drags Feef in black leader Tuesday accused city officials of dragging their feet on a proposed anti­ discrimination ordinance and suggested their commitment to such an ordinance was "part time." Darrell Pope, president of the NAACP, told the commission discrimination was still evident Hutchinson. "We suggested an ordinance that would give the city the power to prosecute people who discriminate," Pope told the I commission. j "Maybe this (the power of | prosecution) is why there has been nothing done," Pope continued. Mayor David Mackey took exception to Pope's statement, noting a request for an attorney general's opinion on the proposed ordinance was made by blacks. "I tried to do something that would have had an ordinance in effect a month ago," the Mayor said, as he again defended his actions on submitting a revised version of the ordinance. But Pope told Mackey, "While discrimination might be parHime ,lhing with you a partrtime fining wun ym», something ypu worry about once a week — if you worry about it at all—it's an everyday thing for minorities." to pass an week, but I "I'm willing ordinance this can't get anybody to go along with me," countered Mackey. That comment brought an immediate reaction from Com missioner Dallas Crable, who again told Mackey he should have worked with other commissioners in developing his re vised version of the ordinance. Mackey and Crable then ex plained that the original ordi nance, as written by a committee appointed by Mackey, was being studied by the attorney general's staff to determine its legality. Pope suggested the city commission should communicate directly with the attorney general In an attempt to hurry a decision. Commissioner Jim Martinez agreed, saying "They (the attorney general 's staff) don't think this is importantr-it is important to us." The commission then asked City Attorney John Robinson to check with the attorney general's office on the status of the opinion. Thus far Robinson has had no luck getting infor matiori from the state office. Robinson and Commissioner Ken Keast both suggested Pope and other black leaders should also write the attorney general. "I think a letter from you would have more effect," Keast said. Pope assured him such letters would be written. Miller's Ruling Freeze Hits Most School Employes According to an opinion from the office of Atty. Gen. Vern Miller late Monday, teachers must have been on the job before the Aug. 15 wage-price freeze to receive wages under new higher contracts for this year. If the requirement of actually being on the job prior to Aug. 15 stands up, most of the 420 teachers in the Hutchinson system would receive checks at last year's pay schedule. According to Earl Pearce, business manager, about 80 per cent of the school district em­ ployes would be affected. These include many building secretaries, as well as teachers, curriculum supervisors and remedial reading and speech clinicians. On the other hand most administrators, including Peavce and Supt. Harland L. R. Paschal, began contract periods in July or August, under which they had worked, and thus would not be affected by the freeze. Pearce's contract period begins July 1. The contract period of Paschal and other top administrators begins Aug. 1 and of all building principals, Aug. 9. Full-time secretaries also begin the contract period July 1. They would have been under the new salary schedule and on the job at the time of the freeze. Most school building secretaries began work Aug. 16 and 17, just after the freeze was ordered. Hutchinson classroom teachers, whose payroll amounts to $3,092,000 in the current budget, were to have shared a $168,000 raise this year. Administrative raises, which apparently missed the freeze, amounted to $18,764. Raises for custodians, which went into effect during the summer, came to $12,500 and for maintenance personnel $5,130. Teachers given new, additional assignments this year will be paid for the extra work, regardless of the freeze, Pearce said. The Hutchinson school board, discussing the freeze at a meeting Monday night, said September pay checks, which must be issued soon, may be sent out at the old pay scale.
