Deadline For Boeing Strike Near SEATTLE (AP) - A flurry of activity by both-sides today pointed toward a possible-break'in the long Boeing-machinists' union contract dispute less : than a day before a scheduled strike. A spokesman said the union would have "a brief announcement" before noon (ODT). He refused to indicate its nature. Boeing's top negotiators worked behind closed door through Tuesday afternoon and were reported in conference again this morning. The company, which had promised a statement after reviewing the situation, said nothing to report. Queries whether it still had a settlement might be near brought replies of "no comment." The union laid plans Monday for a "rolling strike" against the key missile and aircraft producer starting at 6 a. m. (EDT) Thursday at Cape Canaveral, Fla., and moving gradually across the country until it reached this company headquarters complex Tuesday. * * ik- Get Set At Wichita WICHITA (AP) - The Machinists union has asked Boeing-Wichita to recall temporary personnel fro mseve ralAir Force ba sesbe- from several Air Force bases because of a possible strike against the firm.

Haiti Squabbling With Dominican Republic PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (AP) —The dispute between Haiti and the Dominican Republic marked lime today while an inter-American peace mission studied the situation in the Haitian capital. Haitian President Francois Duvalier told a cheering crowd of 10,000 Tuesday night, "Nobody can dictate to me—I am the personification of the Haitian nation." "I will keep power," Duvalier declared. "God is the only one who can take it from me." Duvalier had just finished meel- ing with the members of the peace mission from- (he Organization of American States. They came to Port au Prince from Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, where Foreign Minister Andres Freites charged that Duvalier had offered a military base to Communist Cuba, 50 miles away. In Washington, State Department press officer Lincoln White said he was unaware of any such offer lo Prime Minister Fidel Castro. U.S. officials said American forces patrolling the Caribbean would block any effort by Castro's regime to establish military bases in Haiti or send arms there. Duvalicr's regime imposed censorship on outgoing news dispatches shorlJy after the OAS mission arrived. The U.S. government protested incidents last week involving U.S. Marines. The wife of a Marine sergeant was mauled and arrest- ed by a Haitian guard and a noise bomb was set off at the home of another Marine sergeant. Duvalier asked the U.S. Embassy Friday to withdraw the 60- man Marine mission sent here to train Haitian troops. Vie revoked the training agreement, indicating he considered the mission was involved in a n alleged plot by army officers to overthrow him. The United States has denied any such involvement but said it would withdraw the mission. Land Usage Under Study The Ottawa Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Franklin County Commissioners proposal to adopt a land use map and appoint a County Planning Commission. The land use map was proposed for the purpose of protecting business interests and property values in area towns in the county. The committee based its opinion on Ottawa's now flood-free business industrial potential and the Pomona Reservoir recreational potential. Franklin County's nearness to Kansas City was also considered by the committee. The group reported that Franklin County is within commuting distance to Kansas City and that planning and zoning should be considered for the planning of business and residential areas. The Franklin County Commissioners have now invited the county clerk and the county attorney to go to Fort Scott May 6 to attend a meeting discussing county planning. Mayors from surrounding small towns have also been invited to attend.

Prescriptions—Raney, CH 2-3092 Adv. Freedom Marchers Travel Same Road CHATTANOOGA white and Negro (AP) - Ten men, who say they are determined to finish a hike through the South begun by a postman who was shot to death last week, left today for Jackson, Miss. The self-styled "F r e e d o m marchers" face almost certain arrest in Alabama. About 100 persons gathered near the Greyhound bus station to hear Lovert Barkley, a woman minister for Chattanooga's Fourth Avenue Church of God, deliver an impromptu, sidewalk sermon in favor of the march. Then, carrying a placard proclaiming, "Equal Rights for All (Mississippi or Bust)," the group began walking south toward the Georgia line. Each marcher is a member of either the Congress of Racial Equality or the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Marchers are to be accompanied by a truck driven by a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Moore was wearing a placard which proclaimed that Negroes and white persons should be allowed to eat together anywhere. The "freedom marchers" said they are intent upon walking to Jackson, Miss., to give their in- Delayed Action On Farm Bills WASHINGTON (AP)-Plans of Democratic leaders to speed Senate approval of President Kennedy's farm program for corn and other livestock feed grains ran into a delay today. Five Southern Democrats teamed up with the six Republican members of the Senate Agriculture Committee to force public hearings. This will delay start of Senate floor action until May 14 at the earliest. Democratic leaders have been driving for passage of the bill before May 21, the date on which wheat growers will vote in a referendum tougher wheat. on the control administration's program for Passage by that time still will be possible, however, under the committee's plan for hearing. By an 11-6 vote the committee ordered public hearings, starting Friday with Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman, and continuing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week if necessary. This was a defeat for committee chairman Allen J. Ellnder, D-La., and Senate Democratic leaders who had hoped to schedule Senate debate on the measure next week. The feed grains bill, already passed by the House, would extend through 1965 a voluntary control program for corn, grain sorghum and barley which has operated on an emergency basis since 1961. Journalism Novices Run Herald fascinating. Sitting at the American Hotel at 3 with By ANNE MACHIN At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, there were few Ottawa High journalists who would say that putting out a paper is a small task, but fewer still who would claim that the job is not North editor Robert Wellington and managing editor A. I. Van Cleave of the Herald was profitable for the student?, but the critique lacked the excitement of clicking off last minute. stories on the typewriter before the 1:00 deadline. Some of the jobs accomplished by the novices were proofing the material which ticked teletype machine from the in a constant stream, writing the nearly fifty- five headlines which appear in the newspaper, and phoning all over town for the latest news developments. Of course, the smiling group managed to have fun while issuing the paper. Betty Mangum, who rode herd on the teletype machine most of the day sums it up with, "It's all pretty nerve-racking, but its also a lot of fun." Most of the comment heard went something like "How do these people do it day after day after day?" Susan Kelly learned one practice of the newspaper the hard way by cutting off the numbers at the top of all AP stories before she learned that this is the only legration views to Gov. Ross Barnett. That was Moore's intention when he was killed. An Alabama grocer, Floyd L. Simpson, has been charged with the slaying. The walkers plan to set out from the bus station here from which Moore began his ill-fated trek. They call their walk a memorial to Moore, a white man. "We want to hold America's attention for awhile yet," they said in a formal statement. "We must reiterate this man's single, yet profound purpose—to express the ideal of human brotherhood by a peaceful walk through the American countryside." The Alabama safety director, Al Lingo, has said any such demonstrators will be arrested and charged with disturbing the peace in his state. Peace Group To Organize A People - to - People citizens chapter organization meeting will be held Monday May 6 at 7:30 in the Ottawa Youth Center. Backing up the plans for organizing are local citizens, Mrs. F. J. Indall, Winton A. Winter, Robert L. Shields, and Dr. Raymond P. Jennings. In order to form an Ottawa citizens chapter, a minimum of 30 adults must be recruited. The goal of the People-to-Peo- pie movement is the involvement of thousands, perhaps millions, of Americans in a program of in» ternational friendship through personal contact with other peoples of the world. Aiding the goal are national committees on education, religion, business, science, sports, the arts, hobbies, letter writing, and many others. Since the start of a mid-1962 drive to build chapters, over 30 communities have formed active groups. People-to-People activities include such things as sister- city affiliations with communities abroad, international festivals, international hosting, and travel programs. In November 1961, People-to- People was formally established as a non-profit, non-governmental, non-political organization of private citizens. General Eisenhower accepted the chairmanship of the People-to-People board of trustees. PUSHING TO MAKE DEADLINES - Journalists from Ottawa High School are seen writing copy, composing headlines, scanning teletype, typing stories, and thinking. Their job today was to put out the HERALD. identification for the material. Other headline writers also learned frustration when, after they had completed their assignments, the editor realized that they had written the heads all the same width. Under the assumption that practice makes perfect, the girls then had to rewrite the titles to fit the allotted space, Allowing for such minor mishaps as these, the day was very successful and certainly gave the beginning journalists a chance to experience newspaper work on a much larger level. Managing editor Margaret Williams, in between asnwering the screams of "Margaret, what shall I do now?" admitted that she was very proud of the work that her staff turned out. One of the Ottawa High School journalist who helped put out today's edition of the Herald can prove to anyone that he was on the job as courthouse reporter today. When Tony Warren, the reporter, called on the Franklin Coun- ty Commissioners this morning, Commissioner Don Averill, secretary of the board entered Tony's name on the official records of the day, showing that he came in the office to gather up commission and county news. Tony is the son of Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Warren, 520 S. Locust. He is a senior at OHS. April Confirmed Very Dry Month The Weather Bureau in Topeka has confirmed — just for the record — that April showers didn't come our way in Kansas this year. Kansas averaged .65 of an inch of rain in April, according to records in the Topeka office. That is the lowest amount of rain in 85 years. The forecast for the state to-. night and tomorrow includes increasing cloudiness and wind. Widely scattered local showers and thunderstorms are likely over the west and central parts of Kansas tomorrow. It will be warmer tonight in the east with the low tonight in the 50's. High tomorrow is expected to be in the 70's.
