At least 16 persons were known dead across the nation after days of severe April storms. Damage was in the millions. Mayor Ray Eckes of North Mankato asked that women and children move into Mankato across the river and that the men return to help save the town. During the night 1,000 men worked to strengthen sandbag, earth and clay bulwarks around Mankato. However, early today water spilled over dams and flooded part of the town.

(UPI) — Retired Supreme Court Justice Sherman Minton died in his sleep early today at a local hospital. He was 74. Minton, who lived in New Albany since his retirement from the U. S Supreme Court in 195S, entered the hospital a week ago suffering from intestinal bleeding. His condition steadily worsened, a hospital spokesman said. . • He died at 2:33 a.m. (EST). No releatives were with him at the time. • Minton was appoint-d to'the high court by President Harry 3. Truman on 15. 1349, to replace Wiley 3. Ru'tlpdge wh died earlier that year. Minton had served eight years on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago before the appointment. . ' He retired from the Supreme Court after seven years because of poor health. He was replaced by Justice William J. Brennan Jr. . Minton, an ardent New Dealer in his younger days, served in the U.S. Senate with Truman. As a senator, Minton was a supporter; of Franklin D. Roosevelt's attempt to - "pack" the Supreme Court because of its rulings against New Deal measures. He brought down the wrath of the publishing industry during his Senate tenure by introducing a hill to make it- a felony "to publish as a fact anything known to be false." He later told ? an interviewer he "dashed off that little bill" to get back at the American Newspaper 'Publishers Association for attacking Roosevelt's fireside chats as "misuse of radio for political purpose." Between his six-year Senate term and his appointment to the Circuit Court in 1941, Minton worked briefly as an administrative assistant to Roosevelt. His political views moved toward the middle of the road in his later years and he declined to class himself as either a.con­ servative or a.liberal. As a Supreme Court justice, he voted as a conservative in civil liberties cases. After his retirement Minton said he considered the court's 1952 decision upholding a New York state law designed to rid public schools of subversive teachers as the outstanding court decision in which he participated. In 1948, Minton was named to head a board to investigate a coal dispute. United Mine Workers President John L. .Lewis refused to have anything to do with the board. In a letter to (Continued on Page 6) Amount Of State Support Likely to Determine Result Film Actress Linda Darnell Badly Burned By WILLIAM B. MEAD United Press International CHICAGO- (UPI) — Actress uinda . Darnell was critically burned early today when. fire swept' the suburban home' of .ier ex-agent. Miss Darnell, 43, was rushed (o Skokie Valley Community Hospital.. Spokesmen said she suffered third degree burns over 85 to 90 per cent of her body. She was taken to surgery where a team of doctors worked on her. Ralph.G. Hutchems, hospital administrator, said the surgery would take several more hours. Miss'Barnell was pulled from the burning home by firemen. Watched Cld Movie Miss Darnell and Mrs. Richard Curtis, her former agent, stayed up late to watch a 5 1940 film, "Star Dust," which was being re-played on television. Miss Darnell starred in the film •with- actor John Payne. Spokesmen said the two -women sat up after the film, smok- ins cigarettes downstairs on the sofa." Then they went up ' to read in a second floor bedroom. Mrs. Curtis' daughter, Patricia. 16, smelled smoke, and the three apparently headed for a stairway from the second floor .bedroom. Mrs. Curtis and the daughter stopped to put wet towels around themselves. They said they thought Miss Darnell was -with them. Pound Behind Sofa Instead,, officers said. Miss Darnell apparently continued oh downstairs. She was found behind a sofa in the burned out living room, clad in pajamas. Mrs. Curtis told her daughter to leap from the second floor window, which she did. Mrs. Curtiss crawled out on a bathroom ledge until firemen rescued her. A neighbor, David Mundhenk, 22, broke a window with a shovel but !was driven back by the smoke.; The fire department spokesman said the fire was believed to have started in a large couch in the living room. •Airs. Curtis' husband was not home at the time of the fire, authorities said. A group of 15 classroom teachers plus a grade school principal appeared before the Board cf Trustees following a regular business meeting cf that board last night and presented requests for salary increases, and fringe benelits, accompanying their requests with copious, supporting charts, graphs and statistics. The requested increases range from an increase of S3C0 yearly, from $5,000 to $5,300 for a beginning teacher with a bachelors degree to $2,030 yearly for a teacher with 20 years expsrienco, holding a master's degree in-" eluding six years training. This would place the maximum pay for a classroom teacher at S9.960 instead of the '• current $7,900. Cost of Living Spokesmen for the teachers cited the inflationary spiral of wages in other fields which in turn raise their own costs of living to a point where they feel continued increases are a necessity, and used the request far a $4,000 yearly increase bv Circuit Court Judge Oliver. Wheatley as, a case in point. They stressed also the fact that a nscessary part of their position raauires a considerably above average outlay for clothing to maintain their appearance. Another factor brought out by the group was the constant turnover of young teachers, once they have gained the experience to qualify for positions in higher paying and possibly more exacting school systems. • Meeting of Minds The meeting, attended by all board members, Supt. Vincer-t Guenther and several repres3n- tatives cf the press, was entirely amicable in nature, although the subiects iindor discussion ranged far afield at times, and while the 'Board undertook no committments it appeared that several very lucid explanations by Supt. Guenther and some of the board members corrected apparent misconceptions in the minds of the teachers as to the actual financial position of the school as it now stands and how it will be affected by school aid legislation enacted by the recently concluded State Assembly. Reward The Capable Board member Robert Nash presented an interesting opinion that in sottina up a sa'ary schedule applicable to all teachers if equal education and experience, classroom teachers in gen- \verc in many instances dis- -riminating against themselves. Ke pointed out that a school bo.ird might like to keep and reward teachers who demonstrated above average ability, I 'mt were prevented from doing so bv the necessity of a salary schedule which required annual increases to only average or below average teachers. The chief difference of opinion arose over the widely varied estimations as to how much the local school system would receive in state aid. The teachers (Continued on PfC 6) SUBWAY PATROL— Patrolman Floyd Holjoway walks his "beat" up and down a subway train In New York, where ha Is one of 1 ,200 police doing eight-hour tours on each train to combat the wave of subway crimes.
