J. J. Franklin County, presided, serve as judges on the petition and must render a decision in 30 days. Each person made his or her statement to a tape-recorder, the judges and the crowd. Scott said the information will be studied over before a decision is given. The petition was filled with 19 signatures representing about 10 families within the Appanoose district. It concerns, according to statements made, over 2,100 acres. A spokesman for the petitioning group explained this morning the reason for filing the petition was simply that "we have been going to Overbrook, our preference is Overbrook, and we would like to continue to go there." Those in opposition to the petition complained about the "irregularity of the section" petitioning out. Said one man, "It runs practically clear across the district north and south, taking a big slice out of the territory to get such a few pupils." A few months ago, Michigan Valley rural high school district, which is in Osage County, voted to annex itself to Appanoose. Overbrook High School is located, too, in Osage County near the former Michigan Valley district. While the residents grapple with the high school problem, the grade school districts also face a problem. On May 28, Michigan Valley and Appanoose grade school districts will vote on whether or not to consolidate with each other. Michigan Valley has about 42 grade school students, and Appanoose over 60, bringing the total to over 100. NEXT SPEAKER to the Ottawa Knife and Fork club will be Ed Harding, Washington, N. C., a humorist who used to be a tobacco auctioneer. He w i 1 1 speak here Monday night. The dinner will be held at 7 p.m. at the OU Commons building.

(AP) Nearly 100 State Highway patrolmen, pushing through lines of eering strikers, escorted workers n and out of the Harriet-Henderson Cotton Mills today following new wave of violence. About 300 workers, advised to bed down inside the plant over night when angry crowds gnlhcrec outside, departed under police pro ection. "Come on out you scabs." shout ed one woman striker.

Raises Any Policy Questions WASHINGTON (AP) — Chrls- nn A, Herter won quick and nanimous approval of the Senate 'oreign Relations Committee to- ny to succeed John Foster Dules as secretary of state. The committee acted after hear- ng the 64-year-old Herter, who las been chief aide to the cancer- trlckcn Dulles, say the U.S. air •onto to Berlin will be defended nit not necessarily at the risk of nuclear war. Committee Chairman J. Willam Fulbrlght (D - Ark) announced that the nomination of lerter would go before the full Senate later today If possible. Quick confirmation would allow Verier to take office before leaving this weekend for the Western foreign ministers meeting In Paris. Ilerter had told the committee tie did not believe atomic and hydrogen bombs would be justified in the early stages If war developed over Berlin. But, Herter told the committee, "if it became clear that Russia was resorting to all-out war, I think we would have to consider a change In our position." Herter gave this view under prolonged questioning by Sen. Way no Morse (D-Ore) at a hoar- ing in which the applause of other members suggested overwhelming approval of his nomination as secretary of state. Herter spld that "without any question" Congress should be consulted before this country entered all-out war. He added the reservation that such consultation could not hold up instant retaliation in the event of attack. While moot members of th« committee contented themselves with complimentary speeches about Herter, Morse raised policy questions. In answer to what Morse called hypothetical questions, Herter said minor Incidents over Berlin "ought not to be allowed to stark a nuclear holocaust." "I personally believe that Russia is realistic enough not to want to start a war any more than w« do," Herter said at one point. He said he did not believe tha accidental shooting of an American plane over the corridor into Berlin would Justify a war. When asked by Morse his reaction if the Russians started shoot- Ing down American planes deliberately, Herter said, "I'd consider that an overt act of war." Herter was assured in advance of committee approval.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the 50s tomorrow, with more sunshine. OU Band To Take Summer Trip To Orient How would you like to spend the summer in the orient?
