JD Candidates To Be Certified House Defers Decision On Retirement Bill JENNINGS (Spl.) - Candidates for the Jeff Davis Parish School Board in the July 25 primary were 'o be certified this afternoon at 2:30 in the Police Jury room of the court house, according to Clabie Clark, chairman of the Jeff Davis Democratic executive committee. Seats are to be filled in Wardo 2. 4, 5 and 6, Clark said. An election was called tor both seats in Ward 2, Jennings, after the Democratic committee ignored the appointment of Mrs. Glenn Harris by Gov. John J. McKeithen. Mrs. Harris was appointed last week by the governor to fill the newly-created second seat in the ward. The school board is scheduled to m e e I Thursday to set the length ot Mrs. Harris' term. Sources have indicated t h c term may be until 1968. This would place three members from the ward on the board, and probably bring legal action. Candidates from Ward 2 for the two seats are Bon Phillips, incumbent: P. J. Richard and Hazard Guillot. In Ward 4, where one seat is to be filled, the candidates are Leroy De LaFosse, R. Shelby Putnan and Merlin David. In- cumbent Anthony Jennings did not seek reelection. Candidates for the single Ward 5 seat are Miron B. Fenton and Irvin Joseph Fontenot. The seat is now held by Malcolm Anderson, who did not seek reelection. Former Welsh Mayor Clarence E. Romero is unopposed for tho Ward 6 seat. Incumbent Charle'- Walkins is not seeking reelection. Disputed Fire Insurance Rate Hearing Is Set BATON ROUGE (AP) -The House Retirement Committee has decided to defer action on legislative retirement repeal until it receives a Senate-passed version. The Senate bill sent to the House Monday not only would repeal extra retirement benefits that legislators voted for themselves a year ago—it would make the bill apply to those defeated at the polls recently. The House committee also voted 5-2 against giving immediate approval to a bill to remove legislators from the state employes retirement system. & CQWP* ^ _^ Amencan Press STATE EDITION 5 CENTS LAKE CHARLES, LA., TUESDAY, JUNE Z, 1964 28 PAGES NUMBER 25,719 McKeithen Denied Time For Teacher Pay Boost Successor To Nehru Named i | NEW DELHI, India iAP> -JShaslri said shortly after Con- 1 India's ruling Congress parly | gross party members of Parlia- i named mild-mannered Lai Ba-'menl named him their leader, ,'hadur Shaslri by acclamation a designation which automatic ' today to succeed the late Prime Minister Nehru.

He indicated high regard for Nehru's daughter, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, a leading candidate for the foreign minister's post. ; Shastri wept as he recalled Nehru's death last week and said of Mrs. Gandhi: "Her continued association with us will be a source of strength to all ol us." He welcomed the support of former Finance Minister Morarji Desai,. his opponent who yielded after a determined five- day succession struggle. "1 am sure this will generate a new confidence in the country and will have an impact on the outside world also," Shastri said. Shastri said the party's immediate task is to fight India's "biggest enemies—poverty and unemployment." "The country must remain united and it is important we realize our grave responsibilities toward the betterment of tour people," he declared. "The i economic issues are most vital jfor us." India is "faced today with a great crisis," Shastri continued, and must "follow in his (Nehru's) footsteps." If this reflects Shastri's foreign policy, it will mean a continuation of nonalignment under which India accepts economic and military aid from both sides of the Iron Curtain but does not consider itself a member of any bloc.

Lake: Very low bacteria count time to find the needed pay raise money. The teacher pay raise bill by Rep. Lawrence Gibbs, Ouachita Parish, remained in his House Education Committee. The Senate took a companion measure from the Senate Education Committee and put It in the Senate Finance Committee, headed by Sen. B. B. Rayburn, Bogalusa. Rayburn is a lop sponsor of the Senate proposal, and the fate of the measure perhaps lay in his own committee. President Frank L. Miller of the Louisiana Teacher Association said the LTA planned to move ahead with passage of the teacher salary schedule bill. "We believe we can pass our salary schedule," Miller said. On the basis of the talks with McKeithen, he said, he had good reason to believe the United School Committee salary schedule would be implemented during the 1964-65 school year. The House okayed a package of old Little Hoover Commission proposals, brought back by Rep. Robert Munson, Rapides, an administration floor leader.
