A university spokesman said undergraduate classes will resume Wednesday, giving students two extra study days to prepare for midterm exams that were interrupted by the demonstration. The protest ended late Saturday when student leaders accepted a board of trustees compromise and demonstrators left the four-story building. The trustees also announced student demands for more black orientation of the university would be worked out by a committee of board members, students and faculty members. The demands included establishment of a Black Awareness Institute, formation of a student judiciary and convening of an all-black college student conven- Cancer Society Meet Wednesday Brown County Chapter of the American Cancer Society will meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Wright's chapel here.

Witnesses said the guardsmen smashed windows and doors and moved in behind a barrage of tear gas bombs shortly after 2 a.m. at the two-story headquarters of the National Union a five-party coalition opposition opposed to Robles' government. Hildegrando Nicosia, the union's secretary-general, was among scores of demonstrators reported arrested in front of op- postbn headquarters. Nicosia told newsmen he thought he Was the only official arrested. With 12 minority deputies staying away from the Impeachment proceedings, the assembly voted 30-0 Sunday to convict Robles of charges brought by his opponents—that he influenced the selection of a candidate for the May presidential election, allowed the use of government facilities for political propaganda and hired and fired government employes for political reasons. It swore in the first vice president, Max Delvalle, as president and Delvalle named new cabinet and called the assembly into session lo draft reforms in the electoral law. But he did not take the customary step of new presidents —changing the command of the 4,000-man National Guard. Guardsmen stood watch in the square outside the assembly building during Sunday's voting. Crowds of demonstrators opposed to Robles milled in nearby streets. When guard reinforcements raced into the area, a burst of gunfire was heard but guard sources said later a weapon had been fired accidentally. Throughout Sunday, the opposition appeared unable to marshal a demonstration to equal a progovernment rally held Friday. Robles contends the assembly has no legal right to impeach him. His supporters have asked the Supreme Court to rule on a lower court injunction against the assembly's proceedings. The opposition, headed by Arias, claims the assembly is beyond the reach of any court, Delvalle said he had neither "propitiated nor encouraged" the present "special circumstances." He asked Panamanians for "a common effort that will permit us to overcome the crisis we now confront." The impeachment of Robles was the third such case in Panama's 65-year history. JK418aes March 25 War field Reveals Music Versatility ly WtLUAM ANBfcftS W hen a man has sung "Pofgy and Bess" on Broadway and "01 Man River" in the movie, "Showboat", he is not. expected to be a masterful interpreter of German lieder, French chansons, and Russian arias. Yet the people of Brownwood had the privilege of hearing such a singer Sunday afternoon in William Warfield, the eminent. Negro bass-baritone. Warfield sings each language as if he had been born in that particular country and not on the banks of the Mississippi in Helena, Ark. He sings Negro spirituals as if he had always lived in Arkansas instead of having moved with his parents to Rochester, New York at the age of three. The program opened with the rousing, florid "Good Fellows Concerf Sef Here By Angelo Choir San Angelo Central High School's chorale will present the first concert of its spring tour at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Brownwood High School auditorium.

(AP) — Three youths were rescued today from an ice cliff in a ravine on Mt. Washington where they had been stranded overnight in zero temperature and 100-jTiile-an-hour-winds. County Team Is SVater Champ A Brown County 4-H livestock judging team brought back first place honors from the Sweetwater judging contest this past weekend.

The three are Jeff Damp, 20, of North Conway, and Don Stahlman, 20, of Milroy, Pa,, both students at'the University of New Hampshire, and Tom Davis, 17,a North Conway high school student. The youths were roped together and when they fell, Stahlman was the bottom man on the rope. He worked his way down to the floor of the ravine and although suffering a concussion, trudged a mile and half to a cabin of the Harvard Mountaineering Club. Rescue efforts were begun immediately but the extreme weather slowed the progress of the rescue team up the ravine wall. David Sideman and Edward Nestor reached the stranded pair and lowered Damp and Davis to the ravine floor about 2:15 a.m. They stayed with the youths until daybreak when the job of getting Davis and Damp to a safe spot was begun, Damp, who suffered a puncture wound on his leg and frostbite, was put on a toboggan-like stretcher and lowered by ropes to Pjnkham Notch. Dsvjs, Jess seriously hurt was brought down to Pinkham Notch with ropes, He suffered frostbite and possible rib fractures. Vietnam at A Glance By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAIGON - U.S. fighter-bombers and helicopter gunships in the last three days destroyed 245 sampans ferrying weapons and food to Viet Cong in the Mekong Delta. KHE SANH-Two U.S. Marine helicopters are downed by North Vietnamese gunners, but shelling of the Marine base eases after two days of heavy bombardments. WASHINGTON-Shortage of skilled Saigon government personnel and corruption are cited as major obstacles to success in the pacification and redevelopment programs in South Vietnam by U.S. aid officials. WASHINGTON-Citing helicopter and air-drop capability, the new Marine Corps commandant Gen. Leonard F, Chapman Jr. says the North Vietnamese "can't force us out" of Khe Sanh by destroying its airstrip. NEW YORK-Sen. Thruston B. Morton, R-Ky., says the Tonkin Gulf incident, the basis for major U.S. military role in Vietnam, may "have been the result of deliberate provocation." Be Merry," by Bach. In the ensuing "Oh Sleep, Why Dost Thou Leave Me", his breath control was phenomenal on the long, legato phrases. His cleanly executed thrill, at the climax, revealed considerably more flexibility than can be expected from a Herculean- voiced bass-baritone. Warfield sang the Brahms lieder £roup with perfect diction. Yet he made no sacri- | flees in suavity, phrasing or tone in the process. The audience was captivated by Warfield's artistry. He was applauded vigorously after each song, and he was accorded a standing ovation after his final encore. The accompanist, Warren Wilson, is a very sensitive musician who always seems to undergird the singer with the proper support. William Warfield is probably the most nearly complete male singer in the United States today, and the Brownwood Civic Music Assn. is to be congratulated for making this concert available to the people of this area.

Tlie various studies point to a direct relationship between the amount of education a person gets and the amount of money he will earn during his v/orking career. The Life Insurance Institute's figures show that the current differential between a high school graduate and an elementary school graduate is about $84,000 in lifetime income. Similarly, the college graduate has the likelihood of making $141,000 more than the man with only a high school diploma. As a result, millions of adults in the United States are taking courses in their spare time to improve their basic skills and knowledge. Powell Forecasts Youth 'Civil War' NEW YORK (AP) - Deposed Congressman Adam Clayton Powell predicts "civil war" by young people over the nation's race situation. Powell, back from an 18- month self-imposed exile in Bimini, the Bahamas, roared an emphatic "no!" when asked at a news conference Sunday if he envisioned a race war this summer. But, Powell added, he believed that both white and black youths would join in battling the "white power" structure. The 59-year-old Powell, who returned Friday night to a tumultuous welcome in Harlem, said he came home to purge his district of "Uncle Toms." Meanwhile the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said at a news conference in Harlem Sunday that he is still committed to nonviolence "and I think the vast majority of Negroes think that way," The Nobel Peace Prize winner said he was reluctant to predict riots this summer because "predicting them is like Inviting them." Powell also delivered a short sermon at the Abyssinian Baptist Church, where he has been pastor for many years. Powell, a Democrat, was ousted from Congress on charges of misusing public funds, and charged with contempt in defying New York courts over full payment of a libel judgment against him. When he returned to New York he was released on parole pending appeal of his conviction, lie promised a judge he would obey all future court orders.
