IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, JUNE 17, IMS. Market Pattern Is Irregularly Higher Today NEW YORK (AP)—The stock! market plugged ahead early 1 this afternoon but the pace of; trading was considerably slower than on the previous two days of sharp rallying. i The general pattern was ir-' regularly higher, with gains run-1 ning from fractions to about a point among key stocks.

The trend was generally higher among rubbers, aerospace issues, chemicals, electrical equipments, oils and office equipments. Airlines and tobaccos worked a little lower.

Debt Limit Bill Passed WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has given final congressional approval to a bill that raises to $328 billion the legal limit on the national debt in the year that starts July l. The current ceiling is $324 billion but it would drop to the permanent limit of $285 billion July 1 in the absence of action. Senate passage Wednesday came first by a voice vote. Later the Republicans demanded a roll call and the measure was approved 61 to 26. Officials Continued from Page One discussions. The Soviet Union ;o far not responded to thd n c. ie? Johns Criticized | By Committee i LANSING (AP) — The State Labor Department, under Commissioner Roy Johns "suffers severely (from) lack of effective and dynamic leadership and ipoor administration," a House! Senate committee reported to;day. I In addition, the state's industrial job accident rate has been | increasing; the department is not inspecting boilers or elevators the way it should, or enforcing state laws on standards for hours and working conditions, the report said. The report is the result of an investigation, headed by Rep. ! James Bradley, D-Detroit, and Sen. Sander Levin D-Berkley, j chairmen of the House and Sen- 1 ate labor committees. It recom- | mends revamping of the depart- I ment under a commissioner who i would provide "new, strong and I experienced leadership." j Johns, however, is "serving jonly until someone else can be j appointed," he said. He left i Lansing for his Upper Peninsula home with an unspecified illness shortly after the investigation started. He returned to Lansing "much improved," May l, after "the governor's office called me and asked me to return to the job." Johns' term expired in April, 1 and Romney has said he would I not reappoint him.

Nam should be included, and i Red China declared that only 1 the "National Liberation Front"' could speak for South Viet Nam. 6. Last August when U.S., ships were fired on in the Gulf, of Tonkin off the Vietnamese; coast, the United States carried! its dispute with North Viet Nam to the United Nations Security Council. Both Communist China \ and North Viet Nam took the position that the Security j Council had no competence in the Vietnamese crisis. In April I this year Red China and North : Viet Nam both rebuffed U.N. j Secretary-General U Thant \ in forl talks on Viet Nam. | 7. Last Feb. 20 Britain with! U.S. support proposed a British- Soviet exploration of the possible basis of a Vietnamese settlement. The Soviets, evidently under Red Chinese and North | Vietnamese pressure, declined.• 8. Ex-British Foreign Minister! Patrick Gordon Walker visited South Viet Nam, Cambodia, I Laos, Thailand and Burma in April to explore a possible Vietnamese settlement. He wanted to go to Red China and North Viet Nam but they declined to receive him. 9. On April 7, Johnson an-j nounced that the United States! was prepared to engage in Vietnamese peace talks "unconditionally." Red China and North Viet Nam denounced his offer as a hoax. j 10. On April 8 the United States • agreed to a proposal by 17 non-j aligned nations for peace talks! without preconditions. Red Chi-, na and North Viet Nam rejected i the proposal. 11. The Indian government has s a good way to destroy I a department," Johns said, i "They based their findings on employes. They never once appeared at this department during their investigation.". The committee, however, had subpoenaed the department records. Levin and Bradley admitted at the time that they had not asked Johns for the records before obtaining the subpoena. Johns said they could have had the asking. Continued from Pace One soldiers died of wounds suffered in the fighting Tuesday. Another 33 U.S. soldiers were reported wounded in shooting Tuesday and Wednesday between the peace force and the rebels in downtown Santo Domingo. A Brazilian officer wounded Tuesday was taken off the critical list. Firing was heavy for more than three hours Wednesday afternoon along the northern corridor of the interational security zone. U.S. paratroopers fired 50-caliber machine guns recoilless rifles and other automatic weapons at buildings in the crowded slum area where snipers were believed hiding. Caamano gave his report of casualties in the rebel sector at a news conference and accused U.S. troops of committing "an act of genocide without precedent in our country." The previous unofficial count of Dominican casualties was 26 dead and more than 75 wounded. U.S. sources said the rebels began the fighting and Americans did not return fire until a be trol force. The United States termed the proposition interest- charged that Public Works Funds Voted ' WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Appropriations Committee today approved $4,241,636,500 to finance the government's far- flung public works programs during the fiscal year starting July 1. This is $132,168,500 less than President Johnson requested, the largest reduction being in funds for the Atomic Energy Commission. The AEC was alloted $2,354.995,000 of the $2,481,000,000 it sought.

LeGault, 17, of Alpena, was awarded a scholarship Wednesday by the Michigan State Pharmaceutical Association at its convention here. The scholarship is for an "outstanding young man or woman from Michigan seeking a career in pharmacy." . It is still discussing the proposal with the Indian government. Red China and North Viet Nam rejected the proposal. 12. The United States suspended bombing attacks on North Viet Nam May 13-17 (Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson of Canada and others had called for a pause in the air strikes to promote possible negotiations). The North Vietnamese news agency denounced the suspension as a "trick of deceit and threat." The Red Chinese news agency called it "a peace swindle." 13. A Canadian representative went to Hanoi' to discuss the pause in the bombing. The North Vietnamese foreign minister told him that four conditions stood in the way of negotiations urged by the United States, Canadian Foreign Secretary Paul Martin reported. Martin decided that North Viet Nam and Communist China were not interested in peace overtures. (North Vietnamese conditions have been reported as specifying principally that the United States get out of South Viet Nam and that the Communist liberation front there handle any peace negotiations j and women and children were killed in the fortress • on the west bank of the Ozama ; River. It faces U S. positions on i the east bank. i Caamano also repeated rebel | charges that the U.S troops ; opened fire on the rebels Tuesday, touching off the 12-hour battle. The mediating team ot the Organization of American States reported earlier that the rebels fired first. Rebel leaders claimed that j the U.S. objective was to force the rebels into a more flexible : negotiating position. : An OAS spokesman announced that the American i troops took 280 prisoner? in extending their lines four blocks, below the international corridor i ; during the fighting Tuesday. j The Americans pulled back, two blocks, but the OAS com-! mittee said the other blocks would be held until Caamano gave "satisfactory assurances f hat this. type, pf vjolatipn of the cease-fire, resulting in death . and injuries to civilian and mill- i tary personnel, will not occur i again." ! American officials took the view that the outbreak was inspired by a sharply anti-U.S demonstration in the rebel sector Monday at which a speaker for the pro-Castro 14th of June Movement urged "liquidation of Yankee imperialists in the country." j the law provides that in the absence of fraud, the school board has the discretionary right to purchase without bids, any commodity except contracting for building construction or heating plant installation In the event bids are invitee*, .the board has discretionary right to accept the bid of its choice and is not bound to accept the lowest bid. Bids on typewriters and typewriter service for the department of commerce, were reviewed. The service contract was awarded to Gogebic Typewriter Sales and Service Co., Ironwood, low bidder at $8.50 per manually operated typewriter, and $10.50 for electric machines, the service to include a complete cleaning and overhaul plus continued service during the year when needed. Other bidder was the Interstate Business Machines, whose bid was $8.50 per manual, and $11 50 per electric machine. Bids on typewriters (five for the commerical depar t ment plus one or two for the Drift staff) were received from three bidders. The bid of the Interstate Business Machines Firm, Ironwood, to furnish six Underwood manually operated machines at $139 each, less $170 trade-in value of five machines, for a net of $664, was accepted with the revision that seven machines would be contracted for, five to be paid from the general fund, and two from the Drift fund Other bidders were the Northwest Typewriter Sales and Ser vice, which offered six Olympia machines at a net of $120 each plus trade-in on five machines; and the Gogebic Typewriter Sales and Service Co, which offered six Royal machines at a net of $754.50 plus trade-in on five machines. Supt. Newman reported that the National Defense Education Administration has approv e d the application of the board for participation in the crash p r o- gram to provide reference books for English, mathematics and other academic subjects. The NDEA approved payment of $290 toward the applications for $520 cost of books, leaving the local share $229 The superintendent was authorized to apply for aid from NDEA for teaching equipment under Title 3 (science, English, social studies and others) and Title 5 (guidance), and specific science projects for the biology department. Reporting on school legislation, Supt. Newman noted that Bill 2189, which provides for increase of state aid per pupil from $236 to $255 is now in the legislature for action. If this is enacted, he said, the local district would receive an additional $10,000 in state aid. This may enable the board to reduce the local tax levy somewhat in drafting its permanent budget, he said.. An amendment to Act 269 of the public acts of 1955, recently enacted by the legislature, specifically authroizes the board of education to subscribe for insurance of athletes to be paid from the general fund, or to be paid by parents of participants, provided that no student be denied the privilege of participa tion because he is not able to pay for the liability insurance premium. In the discussion, it was noted that the student insurance policy offered through the school upon payment of three dollars per school years, covers some sports programs during the regular school year but does not cover football or sports carried on during summer vacations.
