Telephone 4141 JFK WARN CHINESE COURT RULES New Problem The financing of two proposed junior high schools for Logansport will be a prime topic of discussion next Monday when the school board meets for its regular monthly session. One hoped-for method of financing fell through Tuesday when the state supreme court ruled that bonding must be based on a civil corporations assessed valuation and not its true valuation. The Logansport board had hoped to raise about $2 million by bonding on true valuation. A month ago, another method of funding the construction failed Rips Ag Dept. In Handling of Billie Sol Case WASHINGTON (UPI)- A.Sen- nle investigator bitterly criticized the Agriculture Department's handling of the Billie Sol. Estes case today and suggested that a "major reorganization" of the depai;t- ment might be in order. The development came 'as the •McClellan investigations' subcommittee opened its long - awaited public inquiry into the tangled affairs of the now-bankrupt Texas financier. Today's session concentrated on Billie Sol's cotton allotments and the way they were handled by the Agriculture . Department. Paul E. Kamerick, the subcommittee's assistant counsel, said it was "inconceivable" that government inefficiency alone enabled Estes to amass thousands of acres of improper cotton allotments. NOW YOU KNOW LOS ANGELES -(OM)-Nearly one million homes here will receive an illustrated "Handy Reference Guide" from the Board of Public Works on how to wrap garbage. U.S. TEMPERATURES NEW YORK (UPI)-The lowest temperature reported . this morning by the U.S. Weather Bureau was 35 degrees at Alpena, Mich., Mullan, Idaho, Drummond', Mont., and Redmond, Ore. The highest temperature reported Tuesday was 112 at Needles, Calif; when the State Common School Fund Building Commission turned down the city's request for $2 million, after the application had rested dormant in the commission's office for two years. THE JUNIOR HIGH schools in question are Columbia, to be built adjoining the present Columbia grade school, and Stadium, to be built on the school property adjacent to the high school football stadium. The former would accommodate' 500 seventh, eighth and ninth graders and the latter, 750. Cost of the two has been estimated at $1,750,000. The most likely method of financing the schools now appears to be a holding company which would organize, sell bonds and erect the two buildings. The school would use the buildings 'and take over/payments on the bonds, the interest on which might nm from four to five per cent. When the bonds were paid off the buildings would become the property of the school city. ANOTHER METHOD of financing might be flie cumulative building fund, which currently amounts to .$531,833 and is supplemented at the rate of about $300,000 a year. School Superintendent'Garl Zimmerman said Wednesday, however, that rising costs in construction could make the buildings much more expensive if the city waits until there is enough money in the cumulative fund. Zimmerman said the superintendent in one northern Indiana city told him the construction of a high school there was delayed two years with the resultant increase in construction costs of $250,000. ZIMMERMAN SAID also that a long delay in the construction of the two buildings cquld result in half-day sessions at the high school. He said classes are presently overcrowded and 100 more pupils are expected with the opening of school in the fall. fhe school board has indicated it may sample public hearing on the school problem at a hearing to be scheduled in the near future.

Schirra will fly around the earth as many as six times late this summer. •Previous U.S. manned flights in orbit were limited to three orbits. D. Brainerd Holmes, chief of manned' space flight programs of thie National Aeronautics and Space Administration,' said "anything more than three' orbits should be considered a bonus" from the standpoint of gaining in; formation vital to future flights to the moon: A six-orbit trip would put Schirra down in the Pacific Ocean about 300 miles northeast of Midway. This means NASA and the Navy and Air Force will have.to mobilize a large recovery fleet and station it in the Midway re: gion. Astronauts John H. Glenn Jr. and Malcolm Scott Carpenter landed in the Atlantic some hundreds of miles southeast of the United States. Schirra, '39,, a Navy commander, was backup pilot for the three- orbit flight made by Carpenter May 24. Schirra's backup will be L. Gordon Cooper, 36, an Air Force major and the youngest of the seven Mercury' astronauts. A six-orbit flight would last 9 hours, compared "to about 4 Hours and 56 minutes for the Glenn and Carpenter flights.

Aides said they understood this was OIK! of the points Kennedy would wake in a general statement prepared for his 4 p.m. EDT news conference on the arge-sc-ale Red military buildup along Hie coastal area opposite Ihe Nationalist Chinese stronghold of Formosa. At tht same time, it was said, Kennedy was not ready to put Jie N,r;ionalist-held offshore is- ands ci ! Quemoy and Matsu automatically under American protection in connection with the firm U.5.. military commitment to defend Formosa. Officials said they expected Kennedy to continue the Eisenhower administration policy that the United States would help defend Quemoy and Malsu only if an attf.ck on them appeared to be part of an assault on Formosa. Private Warning Delivered A pri.vale warning to the Chinese Communists against any military ventures in the Formosa Strait area was delivered over the weekend to Peiping's ambassador in Warsaw, Wang Ping-nan, by U.! : . Ambassador to 3?oland John doors Cabot. This is the only 'diplomatic point of contact between the United States and Red C.-ina. The . State .Department said Tuesday night that Cabot again delivend the U.S. warning against military action and appealed anew for "mutual renunciation of the use of force in the Taiwan-Formosa Strait area." What the State Department did not sail 1 was that the Wang-Cabot meeting was held at the request of the Chinese Red envoy. Official sources said Wang called attention to recent threats by Na- tionalis; ' President Chiang Kai- shek ,li) invade the Red mainland and charged the United States with supporting Chiang's alleged plans. iiuurces In Agreement British and American intelligence sources were reported in general agreement that the Chinese Cwnmunist military buildup in Fukjen Province was probably defensive, inspired by real concern <irer Chiang's possible intentions;. Howijver, they did not rule out the possibility that it was offensive in nature, preparatory to the long-advertised Peiping threat to "liberate" Formosa. Authorities said it was possible if Peiping really believed Chiang was preparing to attack that the Red forces might launch an assault on Quemoy and Malsu, just five miles off the Communist coast, in order to distract the Nationalist, leader. This would present Kennedy with the problem ot deciding; whether it was part of a general! plan to attack Formosa, 100 milOs farther out to sea.
