Mexican Blast Fatal to Six MEXICO CITY (AP) School children and passersby flocked to a tank truck that had overturned on a crowded Mexico City street Monday. The truck exploded, killing six persons and injuring 65, authorities reported. Many of the injured suffered critical burns from the gasoline that spilled over a wide area. The truck driver had swerved to avoid a speeding car, police said. The accident occurred as children were coming out of a nearby primary school. Pre Easter Permanent* (Curv, Body, or Foundation Wave) Operators .Linda Judy Kathy Diane in*'* Bfeauty Sato* PR7'3118 By CYNf HtA L6WRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP);« There was nostalgia all over the television screen Monday night. Lucy was working with Vlv again, Danny was reminiscing about the old days when he was poor and struggling, Carol returned to that wonderful year with Garry and Durward. It all added up to a pleasant, llghthearted evening of entertainment. Lucille Ball has, of course, ratings to prove that she doesn't need much more than a wisp of an idea to turn out a popular comedy show. But when she Is working with her old colleague, Vivian Vance, a fine comedienne with a nice way with a dry line, things work out very smoothly, Monday night's CBS show had Lucy and Vivian meeting Joan Crawford and mistakenly believing that she Is broke. They organize a benefit for her—and this of course gives everybody a chance to dress up and clown. Miss Crawford seemed a bit cautious during this rare opportunity to play for laughs but did nicely—and also did a few steps of the Charleston, the dance that started her off to film stardom In "our Dancing Daughters" years ago. Danny Thomas' weekly NBC hour was a tape of his nightclub act, a one-man show. His routines were a typical Thomas mixture of comedy, anecdote, sermonizing and song. He even managed to squeeze a few stanzas of Edgar Guest Into the proceedings. It was interesting to see Thomas in a nightclub background, and It was a welcome change of pace from the usual variety show format. He is a persuasive performer, puts over a song effectively and is at his best when doing gentle, funny stories in an assortment of accents. Highlight of "The Carol Burnett Show" on CBS was her reunion with Garry Moore and Durward Kirby and a revival of one of, the most popular features of They chose the year 1937, whch gave them a chance to kid the opulent production numbers of the movies, sing some good old songs and to toss in a sketch about the husband-and-wife talk teams of radio days. Andy Griffith, who finished shooting his series last week, plans to make two motion pictures and one television special a year in the immediate future. He picked Ken Berry to star In "Mayberry R. F. D." which will replace his seven-year-old series on CBS next season. Although Griffith and members of his current TV family will appear a few times in the new series which is set in the same locale, only George Und- sey, who now plays Goober will be a regular in the forthcoming show. *• The Smothers Brothers show, during their summer vacation, will be taken over by Pat Paulsen and Glenn Campbell, Campbell is a guitar-playing singer from Arkansas who although not well known to television audiences is a popular recording star. Dean Martin's summer show will star Joey Heatherton and Frank Sinatra Jr. «*<r Recommended tonight: "The Red Skelton Hour," 8:30-9:30 EST, 430,000 in Florida Out of School fALLAHASSEt, Fte, <AP)~ Pressures for a special legislative Session oft education mount* ed today as Florida's statewide teacher strike entered its seventh class day with some 430,000 pupils once more heading for the beaches and sand lots Instead of schoolrooms. Some 300 University of Fieri- da professors signed a petition in Gainesville Monday, urging; Gov. Claude Kirk to call the legislature back. In Miami, Dade County senators mailed a petition to Tallahassee, the legislature can call Itself into special session with a three-fifths vote. A proposed summit meeting oh education-designed to bring teachers and lawmakers closer together—flopped Monday night/ leaving both camps farther apart, Florida Education Association officials, who had invited legislative leaders "to sit down and talk" at a Tallahassee hotel, watted for an hour for the lawmakers. The legislators huddled at the State Capitol, several blocks away, and finally asked the teachers to come to the Capitol and talk. The teachers rejected the invitation. "We were deeply disappointed, after waiting for more than an hour, that government leaders who we had publicly invited for possibly const ructivediscus- sion, chose Instead to hold their own meeting at the Captll," saW Phil Constans, FEA executive secretary. Some 22,000 of Florida's 55,000 teachers were off the job Monday with three counties reporting all schools closed. Many counties opened school just for seniors and other scheduled double sessions. Substitute teachers were put to work in nearly all 67 counties. Only six small population counties reported no absenteeism among teachers. In some of the big counties more than half of the teachers were out. In Palm Beach County, the School Board unanimously voted Monday night to accept resignations from half of the county's 2,600 teachers. School Supt, Robert W. Fulton begged the school board to delay the decision, calling It "the most momentous decision Palm Beach County, has,..ever;,had to cope with."- "-' • Students marched outside with signs that said "Subs Go Home" and "Let Us Graduate. Kirk Won't." Dade County Sen. Robert Shevin said the petition for a special legislative session was prompted by a report from a "reliable source in Tallahassee' that Kirk would veto the controversial $254.5-mIlllon education package today. Kirk has until March 7 to act on the bill which teachers call misleading and inadequate. Lawmakers say it gives education more money than any piece of legislation ever passed In Florida.

LEUBSDORF Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP)- A Republican congressman say a proposal to make possession of LSD a crime "is absolutely unenforceable." He said Indications are that nearly two million students use the drug. Rep. Tim Lee Carter of Kentucky made the comment to a reporter Monday after a House Commerce subcommittee on which he sits heard Commissioner James L. Goddard of the Food and Drug Administration support the administration bill. Goddard added, however, that he personally disagrees with possession penalties. "I wouldn't propose that section if it were to be under my jurisdiction,",; Goddard,said, expressing doubts about the 'effect of such a penalty as a deterrent. Administration law enforcement officials said it would help them crack down on use of the hallucinogens and other dangerous drugs. Carter said surveys on LSD usage Indicated that perhaps l.G million high school and 300,000 college students use the hallucinogen. "How can we Imprison 1.9 million students In the United States?" Carter asked. Enforcement of the administration's proposal would be by the Justice Department. A companion proposal would transfer the Narcotics Bureau to the Jus- intercom by Mrs. McDowell Turner DAR Good Citizen chairman, was made on George Washington's birthday. Se said, "How fitting It is to *pln' one of our young people as gentleman and future leader, even president," lice Department from the Treasury Department, Carter appeared to be In a minority In opposing the administration proposal to make LSD possession a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year In prison. Rep. Paul G. Rogers, D-Fla,, acting subcommittee chairman, said he expects the recommendation to be approved. There is strong agreement on the remainder of the bill, which would stiffen penalties against manufacture, sale, distribution and possession for sole or distribution of halluclnagenic, stimulant and depressant drugs.

LEWIS, Wash. (AP) Brig. Gen. Robert L. Ashworth was handing diplomas to some officers who completed a course on how to simplify their wurk. When the general cam<? to a chaplain, Maj. Walter R. Laubscher, he asked: "Does this mean you've found a shortcut to heaven?" "No sir," the chaplain replied, "Just shorter prayers."

Jim at 19 Is still the bellwether and barometer of the banqwet business. Farms are getting fewer* elite* getting larger, while this trend has Its disadvantages, it also promises one great boon. At future cocktail parties you won't run into so- many of those folksy fellows who proclaim, "I'm just a porel'iir oteeoun' try boy tryin' lo git along." Msybo what this country needs is a fat man as president. When William Howard Taft lived in the White House— from 1900 to 1913-^lhe country had rarely ever been calmer at home or freer from wars and alarums abroad. Taft weighed between 300 and 034 pounds. Could there be a connection between presidential girth and national peace? Few things annoy the head of a business firm more, after he thriftily dries his hands on ft single paper towel In the washroom, than seeing the office boy come in and use three or four to perform the same chore. But~ that's democracy. Even more than men, women are likely to Judge the desirability of a thing by Us price.

THINKS U.S. (from page one) IVS volunteers have decided to quit before the end of their two- year tours, But a spokesman for the ald- ••,mlnistering Agency for International Development said there Is no thought of withdrawing IVS altogether. Sources said Gardiner Is free to air his personal views as a c 'Izen and that AID's spending 01. IVSi about $1,B million this' year, Is related to the services IVS renders rather than the private opinions of Us members. Gardiner said he wrote letters to two U.S. newspapers before the outbreak of Communist attacks at the end of January. In them he said; — Hatred for America exists in most of Vietnam today "from the overbearing presence of 500,000 Americans," from Jealousy of Vietnamese officials displaced in practice by U.S. advisers and from military tactics which have uprooted nearly a quarter of the civilian population. — Constructive efforts toward a peaceful and prosperous Vietnam "are doomed if they miutt depend on the leadership of an unstable, little-respected military clique" elected "by a small minority vote." — "Increasing numbers of Vietnamese are becoming benevolently neutral toward the Viet Cong— race, religion, xenophobia, all contribute." — So much material and moral damage has been inflicted since 1965, when U.S. combat forces arrived, "that Vietnamese patriots will never be content until foreign influence has been eliminated from the government of their country," ~ "We must agree to withdraw from Vietnam on terms enabling us to save the lives of those who have reason to fear retribution if American soldiers can no longer protect them :not necessarily as large a group as are killed by the war In a few months' time); and to a settle* rnent by the Vietnamese them* selves, Northern and Southern, under conditions of order satis* factory to them a«d to the |jfjter» national community," \\,R, to FILL (from page one) been mentioned as a Democratic gubernatorial nominee, would "definitely be in trouble" if he campaigned on a new tax program. Whitbeck has said the state needs leadership but no new taxes. "I tniAjk it shows a lack of knowledge of the facts aj(jd needs of the people of Arkansas," Rockefeller said. "U you want to Intel ret that as being irresponsible then I'd go al<*^ with that." Rockefeller also criticized the state Penitentiary Board for holding aev board meetings recently and barring the news media.

That requirement apparently would have, prevented Johnson . from»^iM4tli4^1&6. guberna- torlf !™$^f he had' openly supported Goldwater two years earlier. Another change in the loyalty pledge would reoulre candidates to stipulate that they aren't "affiliated with, nor do I support the Republican party or any other political party which Is opposed to the principles of the Democratic party." If that change were in effect this year, it would bar Johnson from running for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination this year, which ho has said he might do. Other proposed changes would: — Remove provisions outdated by federal law, such as those dealing with support of segregation and the payment of a poll tax, — Enlarge the State Committee and guarantee representation for Negroes and Young Democrats, — Prohibit proxy votes at meetings of the State Committee. —Create an audit committee to administer party finances. suit you we are labeled stiffs, if ted<>we'reeall^'^asF. 1 " Ho* cem« the girl arway* |et« ffce refutation, when It's a two- way affair? rm 19, anrt Mt« ttoen re- sfsflfif Hiws for four years* What bothers rw Is the stupidity of lifts wha fait for them.- P,A,L.
