Beetham who heads the Educational Television Fact Committee which bitterly fought the school hoard plan before the straw poll Beetham's plan suggested the board should explore the possibility of close-circuit telecasting of classroom lemons to schools as a means of cutting down instructional salaries But Beetham indicated his group was willing to support the other group’s plan provided it clearly eliminated the school board from control Mrs Crowe' plan contained no specific details of programming or financing Instead it pointed out the hig job ahead in organizing a foundation determining the needs and desires of its participants and that noth-ing should be done in haste A community foundation Mrs Crow felt sure would have the support and participation of every civic cultural and educational interest in South lorida For the present her proposal recommended only that the school board not proceed with establishing station of its own that it join as a participant in the community foundation that it determine what steps are necessary to transter its TV permit if the foundation can meet FCC requirements Bailey Manthey who heads the Southeastern Radio and Television Institute a private school in Nashville Tenn reported that Nashville has organized a community foundation similar to the one proposed by Mr Crow's group He offered a similar plan to the board announcing that his school would shortly establish a branch here Support for the community foundation idea came from Mrs Herbert O Vance chairman of the Dade County Citizens Committee for Educational Television Sister Mary Edmund executive vice president of Barry College and Mrs Ellen Bauman representing tto Private Schools Association Mrs Crow’s organizing committee at present consists of C Clyde

Communist captives but unaccounted for by the Reds Sen Joseph McCarthy Wisconsin Republican said on a TV-r a d i O broadcast Tuesday night that the Army had announced in September that some 900 Americans known to have been prisoners had not been acknowledged or exchanged by the Communists The Defense Department did make such an announcement In September Information received since then largely from returned American prisoners has rut the number to about 600 a Pentagon spokesman said The 600 are included among the 7995 Americans still listed as missing in action in Korea The Defense Department has said the great majority of these missing must eventually be presumed dead for lack of any evidence to the contrary The Army said last week that about 4000 officers and men missing for more than one year and about whom no Information had been received would be declared dead In January The Air Force plans similar action for 170 airmen The other services will follow the same procedure to comply with the missing persons act Most of the Information gleaned from returned Americans has added to the evidence of more deaths both in action and in prison camps than ear-lier estimates had indicated Before the prisoner exchange but some weeks after the ceasefire In Korea the Army listed 6713 missing In recent weeks the Army has removed about 400 from the missing column and added them to the roll of killed in action as a result of new information False Arrest Suit Dismissed A summary judgment bv Circuit Judge Charles A Carroll Wednesday dismissed a $250 000 suit which Guy F Neill had
