Caruthersville (Continued from Page 1) viite High, an auditorium-gymna- alum for the Negro high school and an additional room at South Side School. It would mean a tax increase on $100 assessed valuation of property from $2.75 to $3.20. Dale Bracey, a member of the advisory committee, said the 12- room elementary building is to be built on the west side of town cause the present school locations are "congested." Cobble said it is not likely children will have to rotate—some of them attend morning sessions and some attend afternoon sessions—if the proposal is not passed. He said that a basement at the old grade school building would have to be used for white children, and a store building and a lunch' room would be continued to be usf d for Negro children if the proposal is not passed. Wlllard Collins, president of the board of education, said that church buildings could be rented, if neces- snry. Bracey said a parade will be held at 2:00 p.m. next Tuesday and the more than 2,000 children in the system will be asked to walk in the parade. Cobble said Wednesday afternoon that he did not know whether or not posters requesting votes for or against the issue would be carried In the parade. However, he said that the parade could be termed as part of the campaign for the passage of the 'bond issue. The reason is to show the people how many students attend schools here. Cobble stated that those students not participating in the parade will remain in school. Collins wns asked what the board would do if the proposal did not pass. He said. "We'll come back with another bond issue as soon as we can." When Gobble was contacted Wednesday evening, he said he thought the board of education plans to come back with the same bond U- Mif for $400.000 If it doesn't pass ijf'xt Tuesday, He said the proposal can be voted on again nfter 15 days. Bracey emphasized that the re- (juimnents for voting are that a person must have lived in Missouri for one year and in Caruttersvllte for 30 days, guarantees for defense for the first 36 years of their independence. "They will need to be safeguarded from aggression from the outside and from subversion by enemies within their gates," he declared. Sir John said that if the nations represented here are against both form of colonial exploitation by any Soviet—"we must also make it clear that we are opposed to any forms of colonialism—Western and power in this region, now or in the future. *'I am not so naive as to suppose Uiat the relinquishment of their colonies by the Western powers can be effected without difficulty. Foreign settlers and investors will have to be adequately compensated for any concrete rights they may have to forego when the transfer of power takes effect." The No. 1 conference committee made relatively smooth progress on the Arab-sponsored, Red Chinese-backed resolution supporting the Palestine Arabs. It then approved a watered-down motion asking a quick solution of Indonesia's claims to Dutch-held Western New Guinea. Defended U. N. Indonesia's resolution called on the conference to express "regrets" that the last U.N. General Assembly " fftiled to assist the participants (Indonesir and the Netherlands) in a peaceful solution of their dispute." The Assembly refused to support Indonesia's claim for independence of West New Guinea from the Netherlands. The Indonesian proposal finally was referred to a nine-nation subcommittee to seek an agreed resolution after Pakistan's Prime Minister Mohammed All asserted, "we should not condemn the United Nations." Indian Prime Minister Nehru charged that AH was ' 'trying to shield some big powers," but the Pakistani was supported in his defense of the U.N. by the delegates from Turkey, Lebanon, Ceylon, Jordan and Iraq. Red China's Premier Chou En- lai launched the debate on coexistence with a statement that the "peaceful coexistence of countries with different social system' can be realized." He and Nehru both brought the issue before the conference. Several delegates were reported prepared to fighting against any resolution that did not contain guarantees against aggression by international communism. Arab Victory Arab leaders considered the stand a victory for their cause. They charged that Israel, which was not invited to the conference, has refused to comply with reso lutions which would require her to repatriate Arab refugees, provide compensation for those who lost their lands, internationalize Jeru snleni and cede some territory to the Arabs under a partition plan. Chou, who has been courting Arab friendship at the conference, aided in drafting the resolution. On another pressing world prob lem, Ceylon's Sir John Kotelawala proposed at a news conference the creation of an independent Formo sa from which Nationalist Chinese forces under 1 Chiang Kni shek would be "permitted to retire gracefully." Kotelawala said he would take up his proposal with other dele- Cation heads "and especially with Chou En-hii" AS soon as possible. Nehru and Chou had a private lulfc last night, following a dinner party given by the Indian premier. There was some speculation that Nehru tried to sound out Chou on the possibility of relaxing the Formosa tension anr* on the Indian premier's previous suggestion that 11 American airmen imprisoned in Red hina he released. Red China be released. It was learned, meanwhile, that a Japanese - drafted "Bandung peace declaration" -.Iready has won support from 15 of the 29 nations attending the conference. The declaration, to be presented to the political committee Friday, calls on all nations not to resort to force or a threat of force of any kind. Arkansas City Crash Fatal To AF Pilot ARKANSAS CITY.
