Sept. 6-?, with shooting hours from noon to sunset each day, were the pfopxjsed dates for the popular hunt that attracts sportsmen from throughout the nation to the Lower Rio Grande Valley and other counties along the Rio Grande Whete the birds ale hunted. A. J. Springs, assistant director of wildlife services, said the proposal td change the sea* son from two weekends to one was the result of a dove popula^ tion estimate that was "down 20 per cent" from last year. He said the population had at Coleman OoldOiwalte ittico. He died Monday after a long Illness.

(AP> A prosecutor seeks to establish today that a 28-year-old ex-convict should be tried for the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan coed. Washtenaw County Prosecutor William Deihey said two of the 10 witnesses he planned to call in a prelimintry hearing would support the contention that Ernest Bishop Jr. shot Margaret Anne Phillips, 25, in her apartment Saturday nignt. Miss Phillips was the seventh young woman, and the third University of Michigan coed, slain in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area in 23 months. Police Chief Waiter Krasny, who said earlier there was a "50-50 chance" the three coed slayings were linked, disclosed Tuesday police were investigating the possibility that the same killer took the life of a fourth girl, The girl was Maralynn Skelton, 16, a high school dropout from nearby Romulus, Mich. The University of Michigan coeds, in addition to Miss Phillips, were Jane Louise Mixer, 23, and Alice Kalorn, 21. Police are still trying to recover a .22 caliber pistol which a former roommate of the suspect said Bishop threw in the river after the shooting of Miss Phillips qame to light. Miss Phillips, a sociology student, had been trying to help rehabilitate Bishop, a convicted rapist who was in prison off and on for eight years. She met him at the home of a sociology professor who also sought to help the ex-convict. Bishop recently h,ad worked as a garbage collector and refrigerator repairman. The staff recommended that deer season start as usual on the second Saturday in November and run through Jan. 1 in most counties. The starting date will be Nov. 8, one day earlier than last year and the earliest it can begin under the second Saturday regulation the commission has been following. It was suggested that the commission wait until September to set the quail season and bag limits because the staff "believes that the quail crop is largely undetermined by July 9 and that many critical factors could still change the population." The staff also recommended that archers be allowed to hunt all game birds and game animals with a longbow and arrow. Previously such hunting has been limited to deer, bear, turkey and javelina. The proposed Mourning Dove season in the north zone was from Sept. 1-Oct. 30. The south zone season was recommended j for Sept. 20-Nov. 18, except in 'counties having a White- j Winged Dove season where it ! would be Sept. 6-7 and Sept. 20- iNov. 18. I The bag limit was changed from 12 a day to 10, with possession limits dropped from 24 to 20. The White-Wing limits of 10 I and 20 were left unchanged in ' the staff's proposals. An open Teal season was proposed for Sept. 13-21, following three years of experimental hunting by permit only. The bag limit was proposed at four per day, eight in possession.

Quartet Singing CQMANCHE-Comanohe County quartet singing convention meets Friday night at Mt- Pleas, ant Church, three miles north of town on FM 8247, PURE CANE %ir %dr ^pl m^ Im Demos Have Votes To Tie Up Surtax iy Jdt BAIL Associated Prm WASHINGTON (AP) Dem- oefatic leaders taday appeared to have the votes in the Senate Fiftance Committee id over- eome presidential objections and tie tax reform to extension of the income surtax. If the two issues are infer- twined, final congressional action on the surtax could be delayed until fall. President Nixon has said quick action on the surtax albfte is necessary to his anti-inflation fight. The commitlee continued its hearing today to extend the sur^ tax until sext June 30 by calling in several witnesses who oppose repeal of the ? per cent investment credit, which was one tax reform the House did attach when it approved the continuance. Of the 10 Democrats on the committee, only Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota had said he might be willing to support quick action on the surtax bill and leave tax reform until a second measure. But the other nine Democrats seemed ready to follow the SCHOOL- (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) Houston, Tex., school system. The Chicago system, third in size behind New York City and Los Angeles, has 580,000 students, 53 per cent of whom are Negroes. It has 22,000 teachers. The department investigation, Leonard said, "compels the conclusion that the school system's practices with respect to the assignment and transfer of faculty and staff members has had the effect of denying to Negro students in the Chicago public schools the equal protection of the laws." The letter said 215 of Cnica- go's 578 elementary, junior and senior high schools have all- white or all-Negro faculties. In addition, the letter said, 93 per cent of the Negro elementary and junior high teachers were assigned to schools where Negro youngsters comprised 90 to 100 per cent of the enrollments. Only three per cent of the Negro elementary and junior high teachers were assigned to schools that had more than a 50 per cent white enrollment, Leonard said. The department contended that residential patterns alone cannot account for similarity between racial compositions of student bodies and faculties. This pattern, Leonard said, "persists in many cases where white and Negro schools ars less than a mile apart." Moreover, the department contended its examisaMon shows "aJJ-Negro and predominantly Negro schools generally are assigned a disproportionate number of new, inexperienced, less educated and noncertificat- ed teachers." The Nixon administration in dicated Tuesday jt' wjJI cha, 1- leijg'e some arrangements allowing Catholjc' and public scnoo! systems in several northern cities to share facilities. a? theif Seniti this would mean a §-8 mafgih for taking up reform atofig with the surtax extension, assuming that all seven Republican com mittee members support the ad ministration position. The senior Republicafi Oft the panel, Johfl J. Williams of Bela ware, has a number 6f reform amendments he intends to push either on the surtax legislation or a second measure. Me said he has not decided wnich strategy to follow. Majority Leader Mike Mans field of Montana, Democratic Whip Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and many other Democrats are demanding changes is the tax system to insure that everyone pays his fair share before they will be willing to accept a continuance of the surtax. The next important signpost as to the committee's intentions for the bill will come July 18. Chairman Russell B. Long. D-La.. set that as the deadline for all senators to submit re form amendments they want considered. Some committee members do not expect the legislation to reach the Senate floor until after Congress returns from its summer recess in September. Democrats assured Secretary of the Treasury David M. Kennedy at the Tuesday hearing that if necessary they would ex< tend again the tax withholding rates based on the 10 per cent surtax. A one month extension through July now is in effect. Thus, they said, the same amount of money will be taken out of the economy as if the surtax were legally extended. But Kennedy found this small comfort. He said fully as impor tant as the economic effects of an extension of the tax were the psychological effects. TROOPS- (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) and 658 are being reassigned.

The men came home under the banner of the Army's 3rd Battalion, 60th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division, but only 138 of them actually fought with the division.

Paper Says Nixon Trip May Be Bid to 'Contact' Chinese LONDON (AP) - The Hungarian Communist weekly Ma- gyarorszag soid President Nixon's Aug. 2 visit to Romania "may be an attempt at establishing contact with China." The paper continued, "It is a fact that Romania, which is a member of the Warsaw Pact and whose party signed the document of the recent Moscow conference at the same time holds a separate viewpoint in the Socialist world in both is evaluation of Soviet-Chineslen- sion and China's international conduct. "It is not out of the question that Nixon will attempt to make use of this special position in which Romania is to create an establishment of contact with China." In other comments about the Nixon trip, a French columnist said it is "real shock-type Gaull ism." A British writer thinks Nixon should have picked Czechoslovakia instead. Writing in the influential Paris newspaper Le Monde Pablo de la Higuera said the Presi dent's tour provided an explanation for the "strange lightning love affair between the big Frenchman and the little American at the time of the first and last historical rendezvous In Paris (in February). "It was the electric contact between a mass with history on the point of liberation and a mass without history ready to take over the charge. ... A Nixon-type Gaullism is being installed in the Elysee Palace and a Gaullist-type Nixonism is being born at the While House." The Economist in London said the Nixon trip to Romania is de- BEBBTS WORLD ' I © W? br HCA. lot.

However, it concluded: "The trouble is that, as many good people in Europe will point out, the time for a gesture of that kind was last year and the place was Czechoslovakia. Other comment about American affairs from abroad this week concerned the Latin-American trip of New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and the retirement of Gen. Lyman L. Lemnizter as supreme allied commander in Europe. The Times of London said, "In Haiti, Gov. Rockefeller has had a welcome whose effusiveness must have been as embarrassing as the hostility of the crowds elsewhere on his tours of Latin America. "Mr. Rockefeller could hardly have expected better, since he has nothing new to offer ... but the Latin Americans are now finding their own solutions- some suggested by American experts during the Kennedy era (land reform, nationalization or joint ownership of industry). The problem for Nixonian America is to accept change with a good grace." The West German newspaper Die Welt said Gen. Lemnizter "was one of the last significant soldiers from the time of great classical conflicts, as a troop commander and as a general staff officer. With sadness one sees him take his leave, Like few others, he clearly warned of illusions, political opportunity and exagerated hopes for a quick change in Soviet politics." Opera Star Dead at 65 FLORENCE, Italy (AP) Gladys Swarthout, the soprano whom critics called "the best female singer in the opera world" during the 1930s died here Monday, H was reported today. She was 65. A native of Deep water, Mo., Miss Swarthout spent a few years with the Chicago Civic Opera before making her debut at New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1929. Her success was sudden and lasting. She was the top female star of the Metropolitan in the 1930s and was acclaimed by critics in the United States and Canada. She had been living for several years in Florence, the Renaissance city which she fell in love with during a tour of Italy to improve her Italian. She retired from the Met in 1945. In 1950 Miss Swarthout sang Carmen in the first opera ever staged exclusively for teievi- sion. Between operas she gave numerous concerts, was a regular performer on radio programs and made five Hollywood movies. Miss Swarthout married Harry Richmond Kern in 1925 and became a widow in 1930. The following year she married Frank M. Chapman, who died three years ago.
