The Salinas Union High School District Board of Trustees, Upon learning the results of a Salinas Californian poll of the district electorate, decided Tuesday night not to change the name of the district's third high school. Results of the poll were: Alisal High School.

386 votes; John F. Kennedy High School, 259; East Salinas High School, 132. In announcing the results, Andrew Parola, chairman of the citizens committee that studied the school-naming problem, told the board that it looks like were right back to what you people had originally chosen. The board had, in fact, decided on the name Alisal for the new school now under construction at Williams Road and Sherwood Lane last year. But the assassination of President Kennedy brought a request from a group of Salinas citizens in January that the school be named in his memory.

Trustees decided to put the school naming issue on ice for six months, while the emotional backlash of the assassination nibsided. Then it turned the matter over to a citizens com-, nittee, which in turn took it to the Californian, which conducted he school-naming poll, the results of which were announced at 'ihe board meeting. Acting President Stanley Kallick, the one member of the board who had been in favor of renaming the high school for President Kennedy last January, said that the results of the poll appear to be a mandate for the name Alisal High School. Parola told the board that votes in the Californian poll were cast by citizens living in all parts of the Salinas Union High School District. The boards meeting lasted just 58 minutes, and was one of the shortest in several years.

In other business the board: Signed an agreement with the Federal Housing and Home Finance Agency for $103,201 in advance school planning funds. Hired 10 new teachers for the coming school year. (her public squabbling over Southern convention seats today ant give Lyndon B. Johnson an unprecedented nomination by acclamation for the presidency. Delegates to the 34th Democratic National Convention were set to do this tonight and also to ratify Johnson's choice for a vice presidential running mate in the campaign against the GOPs Barry M.

Goldwater and William E. Miller. The President still had not identified his choice for the No. 2 post. Still Smoulders But still smouldering was the controversy over Mississippi and Alabama which turned Tuesday nights session into one of the most chaotic of modern times, and all on national television.

To avoid possible repetition of the unruly scene, which featured a boycott by Mississippi- Viet Nam Violence Rampant SAIGON South Viet Nam (UPI) A mob broke Into a hospital operated by an American doctor at Da Nang today and beat four patients to death in rioting that erupted in the wake of the resignation of President Nguyen Khanh. The outburst of violence came at a time when the government was without firm leadership. A deadlock in the 62-man ruling military council balked attempts for the second day to name a successor to Khanh. Khanh, who quit Tuesday, was grim faced as he left the council chamber at the end of todays meeting. TTie situation is very serious, he said.

Other council members said another attempt would be made Thursday to choose an interim chief of state. Riots In Streets Meanwhile, there was renewed violence in several cities, with mobs rioting in the streets of the coastal city of Da Nang, 375 miles north of Saigon. Buddhist rioters burned down the Da Nang suburban hamlet of Bo Thanh, occupied by Roman Catholic refugees who fled from the Communist north 10 years ago. The American doctor, whose name was not immediately available, was not injured. He is employed by the U.S.

operations mission in Viet Nam. The doctor said he had heard that a Roman Catholic priest also had been beaten to death today by another of the gangs roaming the streets of Da Nang. The victims in the hospital were among a dozen under treatment there for beatings received during rioting in a holy war between Buddhists and Catholics. No Americans have been injured in the riots, but those temporarily billeted in Da Nangs Grand Hotel have been without food since the hotels supplies ran out. UPI photographer Henri Huet, the only newsman to enter Bo Thanh, reported that thousands of Buddhist rioters were wreaking havoc on the village.

He said the demonstrators burned all the houses along Bo Thanhs waterfront, while government troops did nothing. All of Bo Thanhs women and children fled to the safety of fishing junks offshore, while only the hamlets men remained behind. Huet quoted Col. John H. Wohner, senior U.S.

adviser to the Vietnamese armys first corps, as angrily charging to a Vietnamese captain that the people of Bo Thanh were being abandoned by the soldiers and left to the mercies of the mob.

Donald P. Shock and El Sausal Junior High Principal Konrad K. Koch today denied the allegation made Tuesday at a public hearing that El Sausal is a blackboard jangle. They denied it categorically Ouster of Makarios Said'Near NICOSIA, Cyprus (UPI) -Three Greek Cypriot newspapers today published ancon-firmed reports that a coup d'etat allegedly aimed at the overthrow of President Ma-karios was immiment. The newspapers, the pro-government Phileleftheros, the extreme right-wing Makhi and the pro-Communist Haravghi, said the object of the alleged coup was to proclaim immediate union with Greece and forestall current Greek Cypriot approaches to the Soviet Union for arms aid.

The government did not issue an immediate statement on the reports. The three morning newspapers claimed that the plotters, who were not identified, planned to seize the presidential palace, arrest, isolate or assassinate Makarios, take control of all communications and proclaim Kenosis the union of Cyprus with Greece. The newspapers claimed kenosis would be proclaimed on the basis of the Acheson plan. Sen. Hubert Humphrey McCarthy Withdraws From Race ATLANTIC CITY (UPI)-Sen.

Eugene McCarthy, in effect, withdrew from the Democratic vice presidential race today and urged President Johnson to pick Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, his Minnesota colleague. This appeared to all but sew up the second spot on the ticket for Humphrey, who already was considered far out front in the only real guessing game of the national convention. McCarthy was considered the primary obstacle in Humphreys all but open bid for the No.

2 spot on the ticket. Appears to Be Cinch McCarthy appeared to cuich the selection for the former Minneapolis druggist. He wired the President that the qualifications Johnson had listed for his running mate would be met most admirably by Sen. Humphrey. McCarthy added: I wish, therefore, to recommend for your primary consideration Sen.

The allegations made are simply not in keeping with the facts of the situation, Shock said in reference to the testimony of two witnesses at the hearing on former El Sausal teacher Miss Donna Edgar.

The characterization of El Sausal as a school with serious disciplinary problems was grossly overdrawn, he said. Average School El Sausal is an average school, Koch said. It is a good junior high school, and a lot of people have worked very hard through the years to keep it good. The testimony that rankled both Shock and Koch came from North high teacher Joseph Soboleski and former El Sausal teacher Mrs. Joan Goldman.

TEACHER Page 2, Col. 3 Klansmen Indicted In South By United Press International Three Kn Klux Klansmen were indicted by a grand jury in Danielsville, Tuesday on charges of murdering Negro educator Lemuel Penn and a Philadelphia, coroners jury reported it was unable to determine how three civil rights workers there were killed. The three Klansmen were accused of being the nightnders who shot Penn on a dark north Georgia road on July 11 as he returned to Washington from Army reserve training at Ft. Benning, Ga. A fourth Klansman, Herbert Cues, 37, was charged with being a conspirator in the original warrants under which the men were arrested, but his case did not come before the jury.

The Neshoba County, coroners jury ruled that the information it had on the killing of the three young workers is sufficient to enable this jury to determine cause or causes of death." The three workers Michael Schwemer, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney disappeared June 21 after being released from jad in Philadelphia on traffic charges. Their bodies were found Aug. 4 buried under 20 feet of earth. Hurricane Rips Into South U.S. MIAMI (UPI) Hurricane Cleo, trailing a wake of death and millions in property damage, began entering the Florida Straits north of Cuba today.

Gale warnings were hoisted over southeast Florida. Destroyers and submarines at the U. S. naval base at Key West only 90 miles north of Cuba were sent to sea to ride out the blow. Airplanes were ferried inland.

Cleo, the seasons first hurricane, had already claimed 22 lives and left at least $63 million in destruction behind as it slashed across Cuba late Tuesday. The death toll was expected to climb as reports filtered out of Cuba and Haiti, brushed by the storm Monday. Cayes, in southern Haiti, was reported almost destroyed and extensive damage was reported along the islands south coast. Reports from Havana said some 6,000 persons were hurriedly evacuated from central Camaguey and eastern Oriente Provinces during the blow. The Cuban Weather Bureau warned continued precautions should be taken in Las Villas and Matan-zas Provinces.

Gale warnings were ordered up at 11 a.m. EST from Fort Lauderdale south to Sombrero Light, near Marathon, in the Florida Keys. The Miami Weather Bureau reported by radio at 9:45 a.m. EST that the center of the killer hurricane would soon enter the Florida Straits near the north coastal city of Caibarien. Fourth Rape In Ten Days Is Reported The fourth rape In Salinas within 16 days was reported to police this morning.

Police said they feel the same man is responsible for all four attacks. Noting that in each case entrance has been gained to the house through an unlocked door, police urged householders and especially women alone at night to make certain all doors and windows are locked. Police also urged they be called if any suspected prowlers are seen. In each of the four cases, the women have been awakened in their bedrooms by the rapist. On at least one occasion he was seen with a knife In his possession.

In an effort to apprehend the attacker, police have added additional patrols to residential areas. They are hampered because the rapist has shown no geographical pattern in his attacks. He has struck once in the western section of town, twice in the north central section and once in the extreme north. He follows an unvarying pattern in the homes of his victims, however, police said, which includes molestation, rape and robbery. Thus far, all his attacks have occurred after midnight.

TODAY'S BASEBALL ans and a takeover of their seats by rival Freedom Party members, Democratic leaders were considering bypassing the normal roll call on the presidential nomination. Acclamation Seen they planned to give the partys top honor to Johnson by acclamation, a rarely used procedure which would avoid the necessity for a roll call and an official ruling on the status of the Alabama and Mississippi delegations. This could be done by recognizing one of a small group of loyal party members in the Alabama delegation when that states name is called first in the alphabetical roll of states. Alabama then would yield to Texas to place Johnsons name in nomination. With the seating fight thus papered over and a platform opposing Goldwater at every point safely adopted, the vice presidential nomination was the only remaining question mark along the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Time Is Uncertain There were indications the President might keep the delegates dangling until after his own nomination. The television networks had been alerted in case he wanted to speak to the convention on the TV screen in the great hall. Whatever the procedure, the vice presidential nominee will make his acceptance speech tonight and Johnson will deliver his Thursday night. Under mysterious sponsorship, preparations were being made for a Humphrey celebration after tonights session. Gov.

John Connally of Texas and Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown of California, as conominators, will be recognized in that order to place Johnsons name in nomination.

Washington School Bonds Approved Voters of the Washington Union School District Tuesday approved a $106,666 school bond issue by a margin of 158 yes to 41 no. The winning margin was 79 per cent, far more than the two-thirds majority required for passage of the bond issue.

But the turnout just 26 per cent of 765 registered voters was very light by district standards. By passing the bond issue, the district electorate enabled the board of trustees of the school district to bond the district to capacity, thereby making the district eligible to receive state school building aid loans. Passage of the bond issue will not raise the tax rate.

LOOK OUTv PELOWgH As we pointed out some tune ago, golf is becoming more and more mechanized. Players nde in golf carts, use adding machines to compute their handicaps and demand the greatest precision in club manufacture to eliminate hooks and slices (aside from human-caused). Now we have the complete answer, It is a golf gun for you to mount on your cart, eliminating the necessity of using clubs. At the Naval Ordnance laboratory in Maryland, a new hypervelocity gun drives a model of a golf ball at 10,000 feet per second almost 7,000 miles per hour.

With this weapon you can get the distance you need and at the same tune eliminate the slow foursome ahead. Also, golf balls are used in blenders at the same ordnance plant to breakup lumpy explosive mixtures. It is reported some golfers obtain these balls after use and succeed In blasting out explosive drives. Send your order now and add 20 cents for a hospital care policy. W.
