Ijove.ioy opened the roundup Tuesday. DougMs will resume it nest Wednesday, April 21, at 1 p m. By thr roundup, the school hoard aims to accomplish a dual purpose. Primarily, it would comply with the state requirement of physical examinations lor new pupils entering schools. But in the process it hopes during the spring to gain as accurate as possible an idea of how many kindergarten entries to expect in the fall, at the same time orienting parents and children. The board can predict its kindergarten staffing needs only if it obtains ful] cooperation from parents In registering their children during the spring. Last year its summer plans were considerably dislocated by a heavy late registration in thr. fall, requiring that the board hire several additional teachers at a time of year when they are difficult to find. Supt. J. B. Johnson today ox- plained the setting of definite dates for the roundups in the various schools. On the dates announced, school nurses will be at th% schools to assist in the examinations. An effort will be made to concentrate the registrations at the scheduled times. However, if parents are unable 1o comply with the schedule, they may register their children at any time. The pressing need, Johnson said, is to register early. Mrs. J. H.Wedig, health chairman for the Alton District Parent Teacher Council, joined Superintendent Johnson in urging that the parents I'egister their . children this spring. Following is a list of the registration dates, arranged alphabetically rather than chronologically, so that parents can more easily find the time their schools are conducting the roundup: List of Schools Central, May 3, 1 p. m.

France, New Zealand, Colombia and Denmark also supported the British proposal.Brazil and Turkey had spoken for It already, before Dlxon submitted it formally yesterday. This seemed to give the resolution 8 of the 12 voles on the commission, where only a mnjority is necessary for passage and the veto does not apply.

Capoharl's committee was reported preparing un announcement luil it would start public hearings next Monday. Since the charges of widespread sea mini were first aired, two top FHA officials have left their jobs. The first to go was Guy T. O. llollyday, named last year by Eisenhower lo head the FHA. Wednesday nighl Norman P. Mason, acting FHA boss, announced he had accepted a request for retirement from Waller F. Greene, deputy FHA commissioner.

(Inclusion of the Glass Co. offer in the vacating ordinance, 11 was explained, would have Ireen an invalid rn e t h o d of., handling the arrangement between the city and the company.) But he said fast passage of the \ broad tax revision measure now before the Senate Finance Com- rniltee would have "a tremendously helpful effect upon the economy." While the bill is basically a "long -overdue tax reform," the secretary said, "it can help greatly the current economic transition." The giant 875-page tax measure, already passed by the House, is now the subject of hearings before the Senate committee. As now worded it would ease the ta'x load on business and individuals by an estimated $1,'100,000,000 the first year. Humphrey said. "There are many business projects around the country which are being held up (•lending final decision on this revision bill. . . . When the bill is enacted, these new or expanding businesses win go ahead with their plans, which will result in the ere- ;ilion of thousands of jobs and the vital expansion of our economy." The Treasury chief decried what he called "loose talking" about recession and possible serious depressions ahead. Average employment in the past three months was 60 million,' 1 he said, the highest in any year except 1053, while personal Income and construction contracts are running well ahead of H year ago.

Fisher Ousted As Attorney In Army Case » WASHINGTON P — Frederick G. Fisher, one of the special lawyers picked to help the Army in its flaming row with Sen. McCarthy (R-Wisi, is out of the job he- cause of former membership in thft National Lawyers Guild. J. N. Welch, chief of the battery of lawyers retained by the Army for the public airing of the dispute, confirmed the shift — and the reason for it — today as witnesses were called for secret questioning to lay groundwork for the planned open hearings. Welch said he dropped Fisher after learning of the former Guild membership, because "I didn't want a diversionary affair." The lawyers guild has been described by the House Un-American Activities Committee as "the legal bulwark of the Communist party." The collision between McCarthy and the Army is a side development in the senator's hunt for subversives in government, which recently has centered on the service. The man picked to take Fisher's place, Welch said, is John Kimball Jr. Like Fisher he is a lawyer with Welch's Boston firm. Welch said the shift took place over the weekend immediately following thft April 2 announcement that Fisher had drawn the assignment, and Fisher never did actually go to work on the case. Closed Door ({iiir. The closed door quiz session with witnesses was ordered after top Army officials filed their "bill of particulars" with the Senate investigations subcommittee Wednesday detailing; their accusations that McCarthy had used improper pressure techniques. An informed source said the new outline was "stronger against. McCarthy" than the original report which set off the inquiry. The subcommittee, putting on all the speed it can to get the public hearings started a week from today, would not name the witnesses to be questioned by staff members, nor even tell just where or when the session would be held. The subcommittee, working against time to get the public hearings started on schedule a week from today, declined to name witnesses called a closed session today, or to disclose just where or when they would be questioned.

The soresl points with the Army in all the furore are: 1. McCarthy's tongue-lashing of a general officer, a World War- II hero, who McCarthy implied was not fit to wear his country's uniform. 2. McCarthy's charge (lie Army attempted to "coddle and promote" Communists and then tried to cover up for those responsible. 3.
