IOWA CITY — Potential Van Cliburns and Louis Armstrongs of the 1980's are now being identified in a number of American schools through a musical "yardstick" which can quite accurately determine a child's chances for success in music before he even touches a musical instrument. The unique aspect of the new test developed at the "University of Iowa is that it pinpoints the musical strengths and weaknesses of students as well as indicating the degree to Congo Asks U.N. Meeting on Invasion UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — The government of the Congo has asked for a U.N. Security Council meeting to deal with an invasion by white and African soldiers from neighboring Portuguese Angola. Some U.N. diplomats expect the council to meet today. Government sources In Kinshasa, the Congolese capital, said the invaders seized a train and some trucks and were bearing down on Lubumashi, formerly Elisabethville and the capital of Katanga Province. Unconfirmed reports said the troops had taken Jadotville, a fortified copper mining town about 100 miles from Lubum- bashi. Congolese troops were ordered to intercept the invading force, which diplomatic dispatches reaching the State De- Congo See Page 5 which they have over-all aptitude for music. Developed at Iowa by Edwin Gordon — then a graduate student and now a faculty member'here — the Musical Aptitude Profile was published in 1965 by the Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, and now is in use in schools across the nation by teachers who now can not only discover talent but are better prepared to help youngsters build on strengths and compensate for deficiencies. Although initial development of the musical aptitude profile was difficult enough to merit a Ph.D. degree for Dr. Gordon, the test can be administered by any teacher with a degree of musical knowledge. MAP is different from any other music aptitude test. It consists of 250 pairs of original musical phrases recorded by professional musicians. Use of original phrases, rather than excerpts from music with which some pupils would be familiar, puts those who have had no musical training on an equal footing with those who have studied music. The musical phrases are grouped in three main divisions dealing with the basic music factors Tonal Imagery, Rhythm Imagery, and Musical Sensitivity. More than 12,000 students in 20 school systems across the country cooperated in determining norms for grades four through twelve for the tests These norms are printed in the MAP Manual. To launch a three-year study of the predictive value of the tests, 240 fourth and fifth-grade pupils who had never studiet (Continued on Page 8.) Students Plan a Petition in Blood, 'Sit-in' IOWA CITY (AP) - A peti- ion in their own blood to pro- est the Vietnam war and Maine recruiting on campus was :o be presented by University of tiwa students to University President Howard Bowen Friday. Members of Students for a Democratic Society said that after presenting the petition to Bowen, they would hold a "sit- n" in his office. There was no immediate indication of how Dr. Bowen, who already has said disciplinary ac- lon may be taken against some students because of a demonstration Wednesday that degenerated into wild disorder and landed 108 persons in jail, would regard the proposed "sit-in." Student antiwar demonstrators quietly picketed outside the university's Memorial Union Thursday while three Marine Corps recruiters held interviews with students inside. There was no repetition of Wednesday's ugly outbreak which started when antiwar demonstrators sought to block Protesters . . .

Reds Use Civilians as Shields In New Assault Against Town SAIGON (AP)-A battalion of 1 U.S. infantrymen newly as- igned to reinforce embattled Loc Ninh hurled back Viet Cong troops who, field officers said, dragooned civilians to march ahead of them as human shields in darkness early today. There was no immediate word as to how many noncombatants were involuntarily involved, but the officers said the Communist tactic—used before on many oc- casions in the Vietnam war- naturally restricted the Americans, a battalion of the 25th Infantry Division. Nevertheless, the total number of the enemy reported killed in six days of fighting for the district headquarters climbed past 850. Under cover of a motar barrage, the Viet Cong made a ground assault on newly arrived U.S. Infantry reinforcements shortly after midnight, and sporadic action was reported still going more than 12 hours later. Reports from the fighting today said three Americans and 28 Communists were killed and 34 Americans wounded. The defenders of Loc Ninh, grown to about 5,000 with arrival of a battalion from the U.S. 25th Infantry Division, have reported a to- tal of 11 Americans and 23 South Vietnamese killed and 66 Americans and 74 South Vietnamese wounded in the six-day battle. U.S. officers said the Communist tactic of sending civilians ahead of the attack forces "naturally restricted" the defenders' answering fire in the first stages of fighting today around the town, 72 miles north of Saigon near the Cambodian border.

(AP) — Peace returned to downtown Winston-Salem this morning following a night of racial violence blamed on "hoodlums who have taken advantage of a situation." During the night, 34 persons, including seven policemen, were injured and 51 were arrested. Three Negroes were treated for gunshot wounds. City officials said it might be several days before an accurate estimate could be made of damage caused by looting and fires. Fire Chief C. L. Williams said damage from about 55 fires alone probably would run "into the tens of thousands of dollars." The violence began late Thursday following the burial of a Negro man who died after being struck by a policeman. Mayor W. C. Benton said the trouble was started by "a bunch of hoodlums who have taken advantage of a situation. This is ihe excuse they have been waiting for." Negro leaders had urged that ;he rioting stop. About dawn this morning some 400 National Guardsmen and helmeted police encircled eight blocks in the downtown section of the city, widely known for its major cigarette factories. All persons entering the area were screened before being admitted. Most officers were withdrawn later as businessmen and em- ployes began going to work. By 8 a.m. the area was open to normal traffic. Fire bombings and reports of sniper fire kept police and firemen busy in various sections oi the city before daybreak. There was looting downtown and al two shopping centers. The Rev. J. T.

Bake Sales, Pupil Meals Tax Exempt DES MOINES (AP)-Church food sales and school lunches are exempt from the sales tax if all the proceeds are used for religious or educational purposes, the attorney general's office said Friday.

Metropolitan Office Linked to N.Y. for Data Processing A communications network from out of the future has come to Carroll. At the district headquarters of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company at 202 West 7th Street, a modest-appearing piece of office equipment — actually a console with a teletypewriter, a telephone and a bit of rather exotic electronic gear — is "talking" to a giant electronic computer in Metropolitan Life's home office in New York City. The ability of the two machines to "talk" to each other means that the Carroll office is now hooked into the company's data processing system and that the exchange of information with the home office is almost automatic. Ray Beneke, who is in charge of Metropolitan Life's sale and service activities in this area, is delighted with his new helper. The new communications sys- pplicyholders and the public, since the local office is tied in so closely with the company's home office, he indicated. In addition, the reduced paperwork load will give his staff more time to devote to service to policyholders and special representatives. The data system, which will cost well above $15,000,000 when complete, will be the world's largest private i n f o r- mation processing network. Over 800 offices in the continental United States will be linked with the home office computer system by the end of this year. By 1969 the system is expected to be handling about 95 per cent of Metropolitan Life's administrative and financial data. Using equipment developed by Honeywell, Metropolitan Life began experimenting with the system several years before the first group of district offices was hooked into the system on an operational basis tern means better service tolin January 1967. Additional of- fices are being added as equipment is delivered and installed. This, briefly, is how the system works: The Carroll office console is linked to a Honeywell 1800 computer in the New York office, using telephone lines which are used for normal purposes during business hours. After the close of business in the local office, the Honeywell 1800 dials the Carroll console and takes from it the information the console has accumulated during the day. This information may consist of data on premium and loan collections, changes of address, inquiries, and other items normally exchanged by the two offices. During the night, the computer processes the collected data, updates its files, prepares answers to inquiries, and again dials the Carroll office console and gives it the information before that office Computer .
