NEW YORK (AP) - The Ccn ti'al Intelligence Agency- in a secret ceremony has awarded a medal to Francis dary Powers the U2 pilot whose crash deep inside the Soviet Union "shook the world and caused a good deal of anguish to the CIA," the New York Herald Tribune said today.

Overnight St. Cloud had .19 inches of rain and a short period of hail about 1:30 a.m. today. The hail stones were reported about, half inch in diameter. A quij shower about 10 a.m. today clumped .27 inch making the total precipitation .46 today. Thundershowers will continue today and Thursday, according to the Weather Bureau. A storm center is situated over the Dakotas and Minnesota. "Winds might get a little brisk, but nothing to get alarmed over," Weather Bureau officials said. A possibility of another inch of rain was mentioned, but the complex low center is unpredictable. Areas in Iowa had 3-5 inches of rain overnight. Normal rainfall for May is inches.

The copyright story also said in part: Powers, who ostensibly was a test pilot for the Lockheed Aircraft Corp., manufacturer of the 1'2, received the medal in a ceremony about two weeks ago at the CIA's headquarters in Lan-glcy, Va. He actually had been a $;S0,0()0-a-ycar pilot for the CIA. Powers, now lr, is not sup posed to wear the medal and is not supposed to tell anybody about it.

The St. Paul City Council Tuesday approved an ordinance -14 inches, or 1.5 over normal temperatures will remain about normal, with a low tonight of 45-50 and high Thursday of 60-65 predicted. One telephone pole at Albany was shattered and three damaged in the storm early touay. Phone service in a small area was interrupted. Council Split Over Quick Vote On Library The $860,000 library bond Is sue may be brought up again, four members of the St. Cloud City Council agreed today but another voiced strong opposition to doing it now. Council members Mrs. Grace McDowall, Carlton Eckberg, Cyril Fischer and Richard Statz backed the idea but none sug gested a date for a new election. Councilman John MeGIynn would not speculate on a future vote for the library. Councilman John Wahl, strongly opposed to an immediate re-vote, favored integrating the proposed library into the long-r a n g e capital improvements program. Mrs. McDowall said, "I think we'll have to bring it up again. I don't know how soon that will be though. One reason it was brought up now is because of the federal grant for $150,000. The application for that had to be in before May 15. I suppose the possibility of getting a federal grant will probably be the deciding factor if there would be another election later. Eckberg favored bringing the library question up again. "I was disappointed that the bond issue didn t pass, he said, it s something we need, and I think we should try it again." Fischer could not be contacted today, but Tuesday night, after preliminary returns were in, he said, "It's only fair to give the citizens an opportunity to vote this issue on a maionty basis." "I think the people who work ed so hard and diligently to bring it to a vote Tuesday would certainly attempt to bring it to a vote again sometime," Statz said. "But I think it would be advisable to wait for a period of time." "The vote showed that the majority of the people did want the libary, and it might pass at a later time," Statz said. "I was also very happy to see that the charter amendment was ratify Tuesday night." I think itsoing to make for a smoother operation as far as city government is concerned. It streamlines some of the antiquated methods that we were operating under at the present time, and it's a definite move forward as far as the city of St. Cloud goes. "The charter commission should be commended for their time and effort, and a job well done, Statz concluded. Sm Pag 2 No. 1 II 1 1 V I J E . .W ... II i vi f .r si J NEW PRESIDENT SINGS Col.

(UPI Telephoto) OAS Drafts Dominican Truce Pact SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republican (AP) The Organization of American States peace commission hammered together a final truce agreement today after conferring with both sides in the civil war. Despite a cease-fire, U.S. Ma rines continued to enlarge the international zone for refugees. They moved up four blocks to take in the embassies of El Salvador, Guatemala and Ecuador. OAS Commission Chairman Richardo M. Colombo of Argentina told reporters the truce agreement covered these points: Safe conduct for all political refugees in foreign embassies. Evacuation of all refugees of other nations wishing to leave the country. The distribution of food to all fractions. The agreement was announced after a conference early in the day with the military junta. St. Paul Beats Twin's Time LEGISLATURE IS TICKED OF' ST. PAUL (AP) - Disreeard former employe.

House leaders promptly scheduled a vote on the money bill as the first order of business after the House convenes at noon. Quick passage was expected. In a report, the House committee noted that the President has authority to obtain the $700 million from funds already available but said "prudence dictates the enactment of the proposed supplemental appropriation." A decision on whether the defeated $860,000 library bond issue would be re-submitted soon was "up in the air" today but some city officials expressed interest in it. Some observers saw in the 57 per tent vote the ibrary issue polled sufficient reason for doing so. The issue failed to get the five-eights vote required under a provision of the charter voters Tuesday outdated. The decision on revoting is up to the City Council. It could be offered again legally after 30 days. A state law requires that voting machines remain locked for 30 days. While voters were rejecting the proposed library, passage of the first charter revision since adoption of the home rule document in 1952 could ease the way for a second try at the ubrary. One of the changes lowers the requirement for bond Issue passage from the five-eights vote to a simple majority. The vote for the library was: 3,239 yes, and 2,483 no of tha 5,772 votes cast. The measure needed 3,607 votes for passage. The vote for the charter revision was: 3,433 yes votes and 2,295 no of the total vote, 60 per cent of the votes cast. It needed only a simply majority. On the question of the library re-vole, Mayor Edward L. Henry said, "At this time it's up in the air. We have to wait 30 days to clear the voting machines. But next time the matter will require a simple majority." He referred to the charter change that reduces the vote for bond issue passage. The charter changes will go into effect as soon as the vole becomes official, City Clerk John (Bud) Streitz said. The vote will be official after the canvass board meets within five days of the election. The canvass, board, he said, is made up of members of the City Council. In a statement today. Dan Fouquette. charter commission chairman said, "The charter amendment approved by the voters nas to a degree modernized our city charter. I am sure the commission members are grateful and appreciate the voters' support. Personally, I feel progress has been made, but further study of our amended charter is required. "There are major changes to be considered. To stimulate our thinking, might we not ask ourselves why St. Cloud cannot retain an assistant to the mayor? Further, we should keep in mind that St. Cloud is large and is rapidly growing and that the responsibilities to administer our city affairs hava grown very large." Sea Page 2 No. 3 City Vote Tabulated The Marines' advance brought a rebel protest. Col. Francisco Caamano Deno, military leader of the revolt, charged that the United States had violated the demor-cation line established with the cease-fire agreement reached several days ago. He said a massacre might result. OAS officials expressed con cern over the situation, and the peace mission hastily arranged the 20-mile trip to the San lsidro air base to discuss the situation with the junta. .'flaw I Jcf A U.S. spokesman announced j-howii vv earlier that the Marines had cx- miCTn., .... , A11 IrwInH ihnir linnc vuithrt nnnn.

New School Aid Boost Advances ST. PAUL(AP) - The House Education Committee approved today a school aid formula that would cost Minnesota taxpayers some $40 million more in the next two years. Most of the increase would come from larger school enrollments, but the formula would spread an extra $15 million in higher aids among the 479 public school districts. The formula now goes to the House Appropriations Committee.
