Weather- Here And Elsewhere Youngstown, Ohio, Teachers Strike , yOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Forty-eight public schools here and in nearby Hubbard were closed today by a teachers' strike which affected 40,000 pupils. • The strike by teachers' union members in both communities gained support from school bus drivers and ti-uckers who make deliveries to the schools. Bus drivers here refused to cross teacher picket lines, creating transportation problems for some 2 ,000 parochial school pupils. • Bus drivers in Hubbard started their rounds before pickets arrived at the bus garage. They respected picket lines at the schools and either dropped off pupils at the schools or returned them to their homes. Officials said pupils milled around at Hubbard High School, where some members of a rival teachers union were conducting classes. Some pupils carried picket signs supporting the strike there, official said. MT. VEXSOS WEATHER Saturday high 48. low 29. Sunday high 56, low 47. Rainfall 1366 to date 29.94 Inches.

Bogan, Secy, Wall Strei»« NE^V YORK (AP) - Afflicted by discouraging economic news and uncertainities about a pos' sible tax increase, the stock market fell sharply today. Trading was faix'Iy active early this afternoon. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was down 12.75 at 796.65. General Motors was delayed in opening due to a heavy accumulation of sell orders. It dropped 1 to 68% on an opening block of 30,400 shares and extended its loss fractionally in later trading. GM's decision -to cut back production in December and Januaiy was part of the picture of declining sales in the auto industry. A drop in housing starts and a decline in new orders for durable goods were cited as factors in tlie market decline. Some of ttie glamor stocks were down several points while even among blue chips losses ran to as much as 2 or 3 points. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off 3.7 at 293.0 with industrials off 6.4, rails off 1.7 and utilities off 1.0. News that the Johnson administration is on the threshold of deciding whether or not to boost tEocGS produced the kind of uncertainty that Wall Street dislikes heartily. Many electronics still were affected by factor which upset tliem last week. The result was soiling pressure both on tlie glamor stocks and blue chips. IBM sank 7 points, Xerox about 4, Zenith nearly 3, Polaroid 2. In tlie blue chip section, Du Pont toppled more than 3 points, Eastman Kodak, Anaconda and Westinghouse Electric more than 2 each. Douglas Aircraft and RCA lost nearly 2 each while Raytheon was off a full 2 points. Off about a point were Goodyear, United Aircraft, M-G-M, Standard Oil (New Jersey), New York Cenh-al, Kennecott and many others. Prices slid on the American Stock Exchange In active trading.

BONN, Germany (AP) — Sensational gains by West Germany's new ultra nationalist party in the Bavarian state elections Sunday increased the chances of a "grand coalition" of the Christian Democrats and Socialists to form a new national government Pressure mounted on the two big parties to end the 28-day government crisis by agreeing on a new chancellor and to agi'ee on a revised election law that would keep the Nazi-tainted National Democratic party out of the federal parliament's lower house, the Bundestag. Ttie present system of proportional representation could give the National Democrats 30 or more of the 495 Bundestag seats when a national election is held if they repeat their recent suc- A Six men have been elected to .';er\'e as officers of the newly organized congregation of Prince of Peace Lutheran Chui-ch.

(AP) — The family of five swans on Muscoot Reservoir here — which had been a popular tourist atti'action — were killed one by one Sunday by a hunter. P.\RIS (AP) —Insurgents were reported to have seized the Togo radio station early today but Pi-esident Nicolas GruniN:y later announced that "energetic measures have been taken to put an end to the disorder," Grunltzky's broadcast, heard in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, indi- Eted that Grunitzky has proba bly regained the upper hand in the civil disturbances during which his resignation was demanded It was not clear who was leading the opposition. An earlier report from the French News Agency quoted travelers an-ivir:?; at Cotonou, Dahomey, as saying that thousands of demonstrators ringed the presidential palace. The palace was being protected by troops under the chief of staff, Lt Col. Etienne Guassingbe Ey- adema, who has reportedly clashed with Grunitzky recently on the military budget. First reports of an uprising came from London. An unidentified speaker on the radio at Lome, the capital, said a revolution had broken out in the tiny West African republic. Togo, a long narrow nation about the size of West Virginia, has a population of soma 1.6 million people, divided among 18 major ti-ibes. Its area covers 20,733 square miles. Grunitzky took power in 1963 following the murder of President Sylvanus Olympic, who was slain by disgruntled ex-soldiers from northern Togo. The country fomterly was a U.N. Trust territoi-y administered by France. It became autonomous in 1956 and independent in 1960, Leadership Or Consensus RomneyAnd Rockefeller Hold Talks SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Govs. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York and George Romney of Michigan were to meet in a resort hotel today to discuss whether "consensus" or "leadership" is the best way to strengthen the Republican par- I The two Republicans agree that recently elected GOP governors will play an influential role in national affairs and in shaping the sbrategy of the Republican party for the next two years but disagree on methods. Romney, considered a likely candidate for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination, said when he arrived here Sunday that the party needs "lead- ei-ship." Rockefeller has said in recent statements that the GOP needs to achieve a "consensus." Romney and his wife, who plan a two-week vacation here, were to join Rockefeller and his wife for lunch today. The Rockefellers have been vacationing in the area the past 10 days. Romney said he had not planned a meeting with Rockefeller and that their encounter here was just a coincidence. But he acknowledged that their talks would concern politics and the future of the Republican party. Commenting on Rockefeller's "consensus" idea, Romney said: "That's Rockefeller's word. I think what we need is leadership."

In the central highlands fighting, a U.S. spokesman said the North Vietoamese hit tine American cavalrymen initially all sides. The spokesman . said contact diminished this afternoon but was still continuing at last report. He said U.S. casualties so far were light. In addition to two raids on Tay Ninh Province, B52 bombers also struck today at a suspected Viet Cong troop concen- ti-ation 32 miles northwest of the coastal city of Qui Nhon.

Bride Wears Mini-Gown And Boots In Mod Wedding DETROIT (AP) — "This is from not exactly the wedding I had planned for my daughter," said the mother of the bride. Joined in marriage in a mod wedding ceremony Sunday at the Michigan State Fairgrounds were Randy Rossi, 19, an unemployed go-go dancer, and Gary Norris, 25, an unemployed artist. The bride wore a thigh-high, minigown that reached eight inches above the knee. She had matching white satin boots which reached seven inches above the knee. The bridegroom wore a five- button, plaid suit with a cowboy belt and a six-inch-wide tie. Billed as the nation's first mod wedding, the affair included: —A bearded youth banging on the roof of a dilapidated car with a sledge hammer. —•A youth slithering acx-oss the stage using a buUwhip and two high-powered flashlights for props while performing an alleged dance. A crowd of about 4,500 attended the half-hour ceremony, listening to a rock 'n' roll group. The couple was married by Highland Park Municipal Judge David Golden, who last year was honored by the North American Judges Association for "outstanding community service." mAm F,la. (AP) - William B. MacDonald Jr., 58, millionaire Miami sportsman, was found dead Sunday in a pool where he went for a dip. The body was clad only in walking shorts, with $1,325 in watersoaked bills in a pocket. Police said MacDonald was seen swimming in the pool of the plush Palm Bay Club around 6 p.m. Robert Hofman, a resident of the club, told police he saw MacDonald go under, but suspected nothing wrong. Hofman said he jumped In and retrieved the body, but efforts to revive him failed. MacDcnald, a Butte, Mont., native and onetime Boston bus conductor, recently estimated his wealth at ^ million to $10 million. He brought a 1964 heavyweight championship fight be- t\veen Cassius Clay and Sonny Listen to Miami Beach, lost $500,000 backing the Miami Marlins in the International Baseball League, and was a treasurer and stockholder in Tropical Park horse race track. After working on Boston buses, MacDonald built up a bus line of his own shuttling between Chicago and New York during the 1933 World's Fair. He sold it in 1935 for $250,000 then lost most of his money through investments. He came to Miami as an auto parking lot conces- .sionaire, then regained his for-, tune during World War II in hauling trailers from factories to dealers. MacDonald leaves his widow, Victoria, and two children. An autopsy was ordered. CHICAGO (AP) i- The state 's chief school administrator said Sunday he will establish in his office a department of human relations because "schools recently have been the center of conflicts involving minority racial groups, special interest groups, employe groups and others." Ray Page, who won a second 4-year term as superintendent of public instruction in the recent election, spoke Sunday at the 52nd annual conference of the Illinois Association of School Boards and the 34th joint annual meeting with the Illinois Association of School Administrators. Page said his new department would emphasize solving conflicts involving minority groups before they reach "the impasse stage." "The department of human relations," Page said, "will provide a needed consultant serv* ice to local districts in an area of conflict that will be of increasing concern to board members and superintendents." Page also discussed legislation to Increase state financial aid to local school districts and for the provision of a statewide educational television network. "I feel that tlie state should be supporting education from 40 to 50 per cent of the actual cost Present state aid amounts to approximately 22 per cent of the total actual cost," Page said. "If the present rate of stata support is continued, school dls- ti'icts will have to fall back on increased local taxes on real estate and personal property," he said. "The state share will have to bo increased to avoid increases in local taxes, already at the breaking point" ' Page said a statewide educational television network would be available to public and private schools for use on a vol- untni-y basis. "Some states," he said, "have already developed • statewide system of educational television and tliis has played a significant role in the improvement of instruction. I feel strongly that Illinois should be« come a leader in the development of educational television rather than to lag behind as has been the case." Prince Bismark was the first chancellor of Germany and was known as the "Iron Chancellor." Valparaiso, on Chile's western coast, lies farther east than New York City.
