They based this analysis on speeches in Monday's session of the 17-nation disarmament conference by American delegate William C. Foster and Romanian Deputy Foreign Minister George Macovescu. The neutral delegates stressed, however, that they believed agreement was still a long way off. They suggested it may come about only after some top-level bargaining on such other cold war issues as Berlin and Cuba. Foster and Marcovescu seemed to leave the door open for a final inspection quota compromise between the American minimum demand of seven and the Soviet maximum offer of three. "Three is no issue of ours that we have declared to be immutable save the fundamental principle that a test ban agreement must be adequately verified," the American delegate said. Macovescu was more explicit. He chided the West for expecting more Soviet concessions without meeting the Soviet position "half way." "The natural conclusion to draw from this is that the two sides ultimately will come together on five inspections," said one highly placed nonaligned source. Such a compromise would involve a major political concession by each side. The United States for months has warned the Soviet negotiators that the fewer inspections they agreed to, the more difficult il would be for the Kennedy administration to get a test ban treaty ratified by the U.S. Senate. Sen. Hubert Humphrey D-Minn., senatorial observer at the conference, said last Thursday the U.S. Senate would never ratify a treaty calling for only three inspections a year. Heavy Flu Toll In Areas Of US By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Influenza and respiratory ailments continue to take a heavy toll. The U.S. Public Health Service's Communicable Disease Center at Atlanta said Asian flu has been confirmed now in 16 states and the District of Columbia. In one North Carolina area, where flu reached epidemic proportions, there were indications that the outbreak has passed its peak. School officials in Wilkes County, N.C., reported Monday that the number of absentees is declining and the county's 28 schools have been reopened. They were closed Feb. 15 because of flu. Connecticut and Iowa were added to the list of states where Asian flu has been found. Shifted from the list of indefinite to Asian diagnosis were South Carolina, Delaware and New Jersey. Arkansas and Missouri were added to the list of states where flu-like outbreaks have been noted. Richmond, Va., reported four new deaths for a total of 66 since Jan. 26. There were 14,728 new cases reported in Virginia last week. Respiratory illness is spreading in Alabama. Marshall County reported 1,290 victims over the weekend, bringing the state's total to more than 6,000. The Communicable Disease Center reported that Asian flu has been confirmed in Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, and Minnesota. Flu-like ailments were listed in Kentucky Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Vermont and Maine. Liberal Claims Pancake Victory LIBERAL, Kan.

The victory enabled Liberal to square the annual Shrove Tuesday competition at^T-all. Mrs. Barrington, 23-year-old mother of two children, crossed the finish line about three feet ahead of Grace Kostreva, 21-year- old telephone operator. "Thank God I won," the 5 foot 6V6 blonde said. "I was either going to win this year or quit. I'm tired of placing." Mrs. Barrington had placed among the top three finishers in the last three races. In 1959 she fell 30 yards from the finish line but got up to finish second. She was third in 1961 and last year came in a close second. Mrs. Barrington received the traditional "kiss of peace" from G. C. Littler, British consul at Kansas City. Her time was a half second slower than the record of 1 minute, 5.1 seconds posted in 1955 by Mrs. Binnie Dick of Liberal. Begin School Boycott ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - A boycott of the predominantly Negro Lincoln Elementary School began today and school authorities said almost half the pupils enrolled were absent. There were 239 pupils absent out of an enrolled 498, Principal Leroy McCloud announced. The figure was well below the goal of the Englewood Movement the integrationist group that is backing the boycott. There are about eight white pupils enrolled in the school and al least six of them were present this morning, Dr. Mark R. Shedd the school superintendent, said. The planners of the boycott have set up classes privately to continue instruction for the children who stay out. Seven adults pickets outside the school marched with signs for about an hour in 15-degree cold. Vincent K. Tibbs, a Negro city councilman, led the pickets. At a news conference called hi the school building, Shedd said no boycotting was in evidence at the Liberty school, which also has a large Negro enrollment. Shedd said the Board of Education planned no immediate action against those who stayed out. He declined to say specifically what measures might be taken against parents, but mentioned the state's compulsory attendance rule. Funerals MRS.

NORMAN Canadian Ottawa Visitor Fred M. Norman, of the Canadian Government Immigration Service, was an Ottawa visitor recently. His visit here was part of a tour of the State of Kansas during which he is calling on newspapers, radio and television stations and Chambers of Commerce. He is an official of the Denver office of his government agency and is helping his government carry out a campaign of "selling" people of the United States on the desirability of Canada as a place to live or a place to vacation. The Canadian government has immigration offices in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Denver. Last year about 12,000 United States citizens decided to make Canada their new home, Norman said. His office covers the states of Texas, North and South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Oklahoma and Colorado. He was interested in visiting Ottawa since it has the same name as the capital city of Canada. He left literature at the office of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce for those interested in visiting his country. Remove Padlock On Home An order modifying an injunction against Mrs. Velma Howard, 104 N. Locust, who was charged Saturday with the unlawful sale and possession of liquor, was issued in District Court yesterday after she posted $1,000 bond. The order allows the padlock taken from Mrs. Howard's home in order to allow her to live there, providing she does not sell liquor from the residence for a period of two years. The charges were made against Mrs. Howard and Robert E. Wloszcznski, a serviceman stationed at Fort Riley, after the woman's home was raided Friday night by officers of the police department and Franklin County sheriff's office. Wloszczynski entered a plea of guilty at his arraignment in county court Saturday morning and was fined $500. Mrs. Howard pleaded not guilty and her bond was set $1,000. Her trial was set for March 18. The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader.

House Rules Change May Affect Wichita U Issue TOPEKA (AP)-A rules change which several legislators linked to the Wichita University controversy was approved today by the Kansas House, 68-41. The vote was interpreted by some legislators as possibly meaning trouble for the proposal * * * to bring Wichita into the state system of higher education. Strong supporters on the Wichita U. proposal generally were lined up in opposition to the rules change, while opponents generally favored the new rule. The new rule provides that * it * Unification Up For Dehate TOPEKA (AP)-Opponents of a plan to unify Kansas school districts get their chance to sound off before the House Education Committee today. About 250 turned out when advocates of the formula, or variations, had their inning Monday. The basic provision of the proposal would give the state superintendent of public instruction the Charge Two Brothers With Larceny Gary and Charles Ebeck, 119 E. 5th, both entered pleas of not guilty to charges of grand larceny and second degree burglary in county court this morning after they were charged in connec tion with the Feb. 18 burglary at the LL&B Oil Company, Rantoul. The sheriffs office has been investigating the theft of a large quantity of gasoline and tools from the oil firm since the burglary occurred. Undersheriff Max Gilmore said the Ebeck brothers were picked up on a farm southwest of Ottawa last night after a farmer noticed two barrels of gasoline Sunday and notified au thorities. Gilmore said he went to the farm after he received the call and found the barrels and later a third barrel of gasoline. He said he and Sheriff Joe Ferns went to the farm last night and waited to see if anyone would come for the gasoline. He said about 10 p.m. the Ebeck brothers came, apparently to get some gasoline, and he and Ferns took them into custody for questioning. Gilmore said he and Ferns went to the brothers' home where they found a number of the tools. John Finch, Rantoul, a co-owner in the oil company, identified the tools this morning. Ferns said all the missing tools have not yet been recovered. Finch reported the burglary and told Gilmore that about 275 gallons of gasoline and a case of oil and the tools were missing. Among the other items reported missing were a toolbox filled with tools, a ratchet, wrench and a small box of sockets, a pipe cutter, a set of pipe dies, a bolt die and handle, an electric drill, a brass gate valve, an electric heater and an extension cord. A regulator hose, torch and tips for an acetylene welding outfit were reported missing at an earlier date. The Ebecks requested a preliminary hearing, and it was set for March 15 by County Judge Robert L. Pinet. SALE Touch-Up, all colors Enamel Pint 6" reg.

Main CH 2-1522 power to prescribe a plan for unifying school districts if their residents could not agree on one. Most of the argument is about a requirement that a new, unified district would have to have a potential of at least 750 pupils—although no county could be required to have fewer than four school districts. Representative of the Kansas Association of School Boards, the Kansas Congress of Parents and Teachers, the Kansas State Teachers Association and other school groups praised the idea Monday—with some reservations. Several witnesses said they felt the bill would be stronger if the minimum potential enrollment was changed, but they differed on how. Committee members pointed out to one spokesman that counties would not .be required to have four districts, but they could not be forced to have fewer. Some witnesses said the 750 figure was too large, especially in western Kansas. Dr. H. W. Hiesterman of Quinter suggested the committee work out a figure that would vary with population density. Mrs. Ivor Jones of Topeka proposed that counties with fewer than 1,000 pupils be divided into no more than two districts. George Frey of the Kansas State Teachers Association said school district organization in Kansas is a relic of pioneer days. He said only half the farm boys have access to courses in vocational agriculture because the others live in districts that do not offer it. Dr. Robert Haderlein of Girard, who said he was a sports fan, pointed out only five high schools last year did not have a basketball team, but 243 did not offer a foreign language. Robert Saft, Sedgwick County school superintendent, said the small districts are unfair to the youngsters. He said the taxable valuation of school districts in his county varies from $2,000 to $180,000 per pupil. "In one district, you have typewriters for children in the second grade," he said. "In the other, you are lucky if you have enough money to buy chalk." , Memorial Record JACOBSEN - Isabelle, .widow of Ivan Jacobsen, 1334 So. Oak, passed away yesterday.

The new rule means that with the entire membership voting, it would take 84 votes to suspend the rules. Rep. A. F. Casado, R-Wichita, opposed the new rule bitterly. He said he had voiced opposition at the beginning of the year to a rule requiring a vote by two- thirds of the members of the House to force a bill from committee. Rep. Jerry Griffith, D-Derby, and John Conard, R-Greensburg, spoke in opposition to the rules change. Both are supporters of the Wichita U. bill. Rep. Ed Boyd, R-Larned, led the move for adoption of the new rule. He is regarded as being opposed to the admission of Wichita University as now proposed. Rep. Tom Crossan, R-Coffeyville, spoke in favor of the rules change. He opposes the Wichita U. bill. Excitement At The Polls KANSAS CITY (AP) - Three cars of police carrying riot guns sped to a polling place in Kansas C»y's municipal election today.
