Cliehab Resigns, Tells Lebanon His Job Is Done BEIRUT, Lebanon (UPI) -President Fuad Chehab resigned Wednesday, moments after Premier Ahmad Douk and his caretaker cabinet quit to allow the newly elected parliament to choose a government. Chehab's resignation, which stunned political and diplomatic quarters, made it imperative that Douk's cabinet remain in office until a new government is formed. Chehab, the Army major general who was elected president in July, 1958 after the U.S. Marines were sent to quell terrorism here at the request of President Camille Chamoun, said he was stepping down because his mission of "the restoration of peace, stability and economic rehabilitation" had been accomplished. Political sources said Saeb Salam probably would succeed Douk as premier and his cabinet would consist of the coalition of the present parties in the regime opposed by Chamouns' followers. Political Dolls Lose LONDON (UPD-Manufacturers of dolls depicting leading British politicians Wednesday reported their sales were down Because children "seem to dislike politicians." I I Li Pilot Leader Expects to Meet Southern's President Today By BUDDY DAVIS A chasm still gaped between Southern Airways and its striking pilots Wednesday, but prospects for a "summit" labor-management conference on Thursday appeared bright. Flying into Atlanta Wednesday was Capt. Clarence N. Sayen of Chicago, national president of the Air Line Pilots Assn. Although details are not crystalized, he expects to confer Thursday with Southern Airways President Frank W. Hulse. Sayen has the power, granted by ALPA directors, to order all union pilots with other airlines to respect picket lines of the striking Southern pilots. This would virtually halt air transportation in the Southeast, with 13 airlines paralyzed at Southern ports, he said. Sayen said he is hesitant to use this "ultimate weapon" because the halting of air traffic is "pretty serious business." Such a sympathy strike would disrupt some 1,186 daily flights in the Southeast, including 275 per day at the Atlanta airport. Despite prospects for a summit" meeting, labor and management were wide apart on the prime issue. The ALPA is adam ant that 62 non-union pilots hired by Southern in the past six weeks must not replace union pilots in any settlement. chairman of the DeKalb 1 1 Hotel Wednesday. J. 0. Bowen. one of three district commissioners running for the $15,000-a-year chairmanship, said that he would ask for election of school board members in primaries rather than in district elections. Bowen said the school board is spending more money than the county commission and its members should "answer to the public" for school expendi tures. MINIMUM WAGE Bowen also asked a minimum $1.23 hourly wage for county employes. He advocated moving the present health department facilities to a site near the new DeKalb General Hospital. Bowen also said if elected he will ask for legislation to allow DeKalb countians to vote once again on a county manager-type government. He said he will step down if the public choice is for a manager. C. 0. Emmerich, who took a four-year leave of absence from his job as business manager of Emory University to run for the office, said the county's most urgent need is an overall plan for development. He said the county needs a leader who has administrative experience, thinks in broad concepts, and is able to lead men, $50 MILLION Emmerich said reports show the county must spend '$50 million in capital improvements. Balancing industrial and residential growth, he said, is the only way to avoid raising taxes. Emmerich praised the school board for keeping the public informed of its needs and decisions. "You are building one of the finest school systems in the coun try," he told the group. Clark Harrison Jr., District 1 commissioner, repeated his request that the county buy now all the land that it needs for parks. "Property is growing more expensive all the time and if we don't buy the land we need now we are breaking faith with our children," he said. AFTER POLITICAL RACE The courthouse expansion will best be decided, Harrison said, after the political race is over and "the survivors get together." Harrison and Bowen defended their positions in voting to let a 20-foot strip on the east side of the courthouse be converted into thoroughfare to speed traffic flow. Both men said that the land is public land that is still being publicly used. Brince Manning, District 2 commissioner, said that he did not want to see the courthouse space issue "studied into the ground." Manning, who voted against using courthouse property for a thoroughfare, said the county needs the land for courthouse expansion. Manning said DeKalb County has complex problems as the second largest county in Georgia and that the state and federal governments are turning more and more to the county for solution of problems. He offered to supply the county with its "greatest need youthful, energetic leadership." Southern Airways is equally adamant the pilots were hired as permanent replacements in good faith and must remain on the company s rosier. Sayen confidently expects National Mediator Leverette Edwards to arrange a meeting with Southern Airways management, but Southern reported "all we know is what we read in the newspapers." Southern vice president Gray-don Hall said the airline knew of no official conference. Southern's 146 pilots struck July 5 over wages and work rules. When the airline began hiring non-union pilots, the ALPA threw up picket lines. Southern now has 62 non-union pilots flying 18 daily flights serving 27 cities. Before the strike, it had about 60 flights daily in eight Southern states, serving some 47 cities. ALPA president Sayen said the national pilots' organization is concerned only with the strike-breaking efforts of Southern Airways. The threat to paralyze Southern ports will end if the airline rids itself of "scab" pilots," he said. Beyond that, it's up to Southern Airways and its striking pilots to settle their own dispute over wages and work rules. Sayen paid a formal visit to Mayor William B.

(Associated Press Wirephoto) GEORGIA NEWS ROUNDUP Integration in Parks Ashed at Savannah SAVANNAH Twenty-three Negroes petitioned Savannah's rpewation commissioner Wednesday for use of Savannah recreation areas The petition stated the Negro citizens of Savannah are being denied use of the park areas ex cept when allowed to use them on a racially segregated basis. Included in the petition were Forsyth Park, Grayson Sta dium, Dassin Park, Memorial Stadium and Municipal Stadium. W. W. Law, president of the Savannah branch of the NAACP, said the petition was mailed to the commissioner Tuesday. McDuffie Candidate Is Ruled a Suicide THOMSON -A leading Democratic candidate for Congress in the 10th District, McDuffie County Clerk of Court Allen Pannell, killed himself with a shotgun in a fit of despondency, a coroner's jury decided Wednesday. The body of Pannell, 51, was discovered Tuesday at his 1,000-acre farm. A shotgun and a yardstick used to trigger the weapon were found nearby, officers said. 3 Bodies Recovered After Copter Crash SAVANNAH - The bodies of three crewmen killed when a Navy helicopter caught fire in two expressed hopes the issue can be settled without public incon venience. Hartsfield earlier had indicated he would seek a court order if necessary to break up a damaging strike by all pilots. io achieve certification as a public carrier, Sayen said South ern had to comply with the Railway Labor Act. which presumes bargaining in good faith with or ganized labor. "If Southern continues to violate the act. the next olnious move would be to seek revocation of the airline's certification," he said. Sayen claimed the employment of "scab" pilots and the fate of striking pilots were the prime issues in the dispute. Wage scales and work rules were "nickle and dime" matters easily compromised, he said. Southern vice president Hall disagreed. He said the wage and work rule demands would demand added expenditure of $665,000 in a 16-month contract period. It amounts to a 29 per cent increase, he said. He was most adamant regarding the 62 non-union pilots added to the payroll in the past six weeks. "We will not let them down," he said. "They came here in good faith when we needed them badly. They are highly qualified people, 25 of them captains with 12.000 flying hours, and we have a moral obligation to them. "This is where we draw the .line." - jLi" on a non-segregated basis. midair and plunged into the marshes of Daufuske Island near here have been recovered by rescue workers.

SCOUT MAXSW A Little Of Dixie in Colorado prll I Tin rHMuili COLORADO SPRINGS-A columned mansion tells Boy Scouts from all over the world that the South is here. A delegation of scout leaders from Georgia, Florida, the Carolines and the Canal Zone put up the mansion Sunday after hauling it from Atlanta. FIRST ERECTED The mansion was the first display to be erected at the 2,400-acrt site of the Golden Jubilee Boy Scout Jamboree.' The jamboree will be held July 22-28. But back to the mansion it was put together in the home of Tom Burgess of Atlanta, regional scout executive. "In my wife's basement, much to her dismay," he said. (His wife said, "Yes, I'm afraid it was. It seemed like they worked on it for weeks. They prefabricated it just as you would any other kind of house.") ONLY THREE SIDES The difference between the mansion and other houses is that the mansion has only three sides it's not a real house at all. (Mrs. Burgess said in Atlanta the scouts planned to bring the mansion back to Atlanta, after the jamboree, if any of it could be salvaged.) The mansion sits amid a tropical setting of lemon trees, orange trees and rubber trees. The trees were sent to Colorado by a Florida nurserymen's association. About 57,000 scouts and leaders will be on hand for the jamboree. They will come from every state and from foreign countries. 2 Georgians Among Dead On Dcs trovers LONG BEACH, Calif.

New Court Defended By Builders The Fulton County Commission, which has declined to accept formally the new Fulton Juvenile Court building because of hairline cracks in the ceilings, heard the building contractors declare Wednesday that the ceilings are neither "faulty" nor "inferior." The contractors conceded, how ever, that some ceilings in the n'.w structure weren't completed according to specifications. A dif ferent material" 'other than that specified in the original contract) was used in some ceilings, they said. The commission again deferred acceptance of the building, In another action, the commission awarded to Thompson and Street Co. a $2,231,435 contract for remodeling the courthouse, including air conditioning the courthouse and the county administration building. ml IFF?
