The new contract continues his annual salary at $48,500 and allows Willis to retain his claim as the third ^highest public administrator in the nation. Only the President of the United States and the governor of New York are paid more.

GOP Names Lindsay or Candidate Mayc NEW YORK (UPD — Rep. John V. Lindsay went forth today with the official blessings of the Republican party to attempt to unseat Democratic Mayor Robert F. Wagner. More than 1,200 Republican county committeemen representing all five New York City boroughs Thursday night by acclamation nominated -Lindsay as the party's choice to oppose Wagner's bid for an unprecedented fourth term.

Lindsay has also rejected help from the GOP National Committee.

One school board member immediately called for a reconsideration of the 74 vote by which Willis was awarded the contract because his reference to retirement was not unequivocal. After persistent questioning by board members, Willis assured them he does not plan to serve past Jus 65th birthday and said "I think you can bank on that." Willis-wore a wide grin after the meeting, but civil rights leaders didn't. They have long maintained that Willis policies maintain segregation in the city's public school system and. said his reappointment was a "tremendous mistake." They pledged to "express our indignation in as many forms as are conceivable," and specially mentioned the possibility of another citywide school boycott similar to those employed to dramatize civil rights discontent previously.

M* 28,1965 PACES Promised "Hot Grits"- es On Freedom es By United Press International A band of 150 Negroes, with the promise of "hot grits" at the end of the road, planned to head out today on a freedom march through Mississippi's rural Rankin County. In Georgia, a group similar in size planned a shorter march — to the bus stop at tiny Crawfordville — to test public accommodations in a showdown that has already caused the alleged civil beating of a white rights worker, tense confrontations and the arrival of a bevy of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. The Mississippi march, down a lonesome highway from the rural community of Fannin, was to protest voter discrimination and in support of the predominantly Negro Freedom Party in its efforts to unseat Mississippi congressmen they allege were illegally, elected because of discrimination'. Negroes gathered around a pickup truck near a burned church Thursday night in Brandon, Miss., to hear plans'for the march. "Hot grits will be served Sat- Hint New Nuclear Arms to Replace Davy Crockett Gun By CHARLES W. CORDDRY WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States is developing more accurate tactical nuclear weapons for the use of frontline troops in Europe, presumably to replace the Davy Crockett atomic gun at some future date. But, said the Defense Department in a statement Thursday night, "no decision has been made to withdraw the Davy Crockett from its current deployment in Europe," where it is assigned to five U.S. divisions. The Davy Crockett, variously called a bazooka or a mortar, is small enough to be handled by two or three men and may be jeep-mounted'. It is a long, tubular weapon with a solid fuel missile which throws a bulbous atomic warhead. Its explosive force is equal only to a few tons of TNT whereas most nuclear weapons are compared with thousands or millions of tons cf TNT. Small by atomic standards, it is designed to break up enemy OK Warnings On Cigarette Packs WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Commerce Committee has approved legislation requiring health-hazard warnings on cigarette packages, but exempted the warnings from advertising. The bill, similar to one already approved by the Senate Commerce Committee, would require that packages carry labels reading: "Caution. Cigarette smoking may be hazardous to your health." Although the House and Senate committees have approved the bill it has not yet been scheduled for a vote by the full House or Senate. The legislation was introduced after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced it would require health hazard warnings on both cigarette packages and advertising. Make a Choice WASHINGTON (UPI) — Rep. Raymond F. Clevenger, D-Mich. Thursday fired off the following telegram to John Bailey, Democratic national committee chairman: "The Michigan Republican state chairman has held a meeting in Munising, Mich., in which it was alleged that you are furnishing me with free air travel tickets for my many trips back to the llth District of Michigan.

The weapon is not considered an efficient one and, in some quarters, it is said to require unwarranted numbers of men for handling separately stored launchers and atomic shells. The Defense Department said Thursday night that it had conducted studies of the Davy Crockett's effectiveness in relation to its cost. "As weapons which can do the same job more accurately 'and effectively for less money are developed, they will be assigned to troops in Europe," the Pentagon said. United Press International reported on Feb. 15, 1963 that the Pentagon was "taking a new look at the need for the Davy Crockett" and might cut back the numbers planned for army forces in Europe. Although Thursday night's statement did not say so, the better weapons being developed presumably will replace rather than supplement Davy Crockett ifl- Europe 1 ." -B«" •apparently' It still will be a considerable time before that happens. Fort Wayne Market Robbed of $4,000 FORT WAYNE, Ind. (UPI) — Four men, all believed armed, robbed a supermarket of an estimated $3,000-$4,000 here Thursday night. Charles Garrett, acting assistant manager of the store, said the four men entered through a rear door while he and five other employes were stocking shelves and counting the day's receipts after the store closed. He said the bandits took the money from four cash drawers and the open safe and then left by the back door, apparently fleeing on foot. urday morning," said a -Congress of racial equality leader. "Coffee will be served after the march." The Justice Department filed . a voter discrimination suit last month, alleging that more than 12,000 of the 13,264 whites of. voting age are .registered in Rankin County while only 94 of 6,944 Negroes were registered. At Crawfordville, civil rights workers hoped to integrate the Liberty Cafe. The move to the cafe was to coincide with the arrival of a bus because the cafe will have to open to serve passengers. Negroes found the cafe closed when they called in a mass visit Thursday.
