Gold Prices Eases in Europe LONDON (AP) ~ The price of gold eased further today in Europe's free billion markets and there was little buying. The price of gold at the London morning fixing was $37.70, down 10 cents an ounce from Monday's fixing level. The official price is $35 an ounce. The gold price in Paris dipped to $37.66, down from Monday's $38.08. The quotation was the lowest since the free market opened March 15 with the price hitting $44.36. Prices were unchanged at Frankfurt, down to $37.50 an ounce at Zurich and eased in Hong Kong. The price level faced speculators who snatched up whatever amounts of the metal they could get in last month's gold panic, with the dilemma of selling out to cut their losses or hanging on for a long haul. 35,000 U.S. Troops Leaving HOPE (MK) STM, Populated Area* Get More Voting Power in Supremo Court Ruling 23,000 elect officials by district, It is these that are most directly affected by Monday's decision Many already are in line with one man-one vote.

A commercial jetliner took off from Munich with 214 soldiers, wives and children. Three other flights were scheduled today with a total of 327 passengers. Their first stop in the United States was to be McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey, to unload men whose cars had been shipped in advance to Philadelphia. The rest were to continue on to Forbes Air Force Base in Kansas and then to Ft. Riley, Kan. Another unit, the 5th Battalion, 32nd Armor, is to begin its withdrawal Wednesday. Two 24th Division brigades, totaling 10,000 servicemen and 12,000 members of their families, are being shifted to Ft. Riley under the redeployment plan announced last December. The plan is to save about $100 million annually in foreign exchange costs. The 24th Division's move is expected to take until mid-June. An advance party is already in Kansas. The other air units are scheduled to begin moving in mid- July. FIRST ENEMY From (Page 1) States is planning a now plot to maintain its new colonialism and increasing Us troops to reconstruct the South Vietnamese puppet regime and troops. "The United States is attempting to increase bombing of North Vietnam and a so-called fraudulent proposal for peace talks is aimed at getting rid of isolation from the people of the world." The army newspaper Quan Doi Nhan Dan quoted by Tass pointed out that Johnson still has not agreed to halt bombings and other military action against North Vietnam, as demanded repeatedly by President Ho Chi Minii's regime before peace talks can begin. "Our people want peace," Tass quoted the newspaper Quan Doi Nhan Dan as saying, "but real peace must go with genuine Independence and freedom. AS long as our beloved homeland is overshadowed t»y Am r ricau aggression, our country will UAt have geuuine freedom and loiepei«ieace." as the court said in June 1964 they must be, shouldn't city, town and county governing bodies that are creatures of these legislatures be bound by the same rule? It took almost four years and a few false starts, but Monday five justices decided the logic was inexorable, "The actions of local government are the actions of the state," Justice Byron R. White reasoned. Logically he found little difference between the exercise of state power through legislatures and its exercise by election officials in the cities, towns and counties. The logical simplicity was what appeared to irk most the three dissenters. Tliurgood Marshall, the ninth justice, did not participate. Potter Stewart scorned the use of "sixth-grade arithmetic" to resolve subtle problems of constitutional law. Abe Fortas said his colleagues had passed over a complex of values and factors with "the arithmetic simplicity of one equals one." And John M. Harlan described himself as "frankly astonished at the ease" with which the court brought one man-one vote to grassroots government. But these were the complaints of dissenters. The die is cast. The remaining question is how cities, towns and counties will get in line with Supreme Court- made law. At the beginning of 1967 there were 81,253 units of local government in the United States. This includes 3,049 county governments, 18,051 municipal governments, 17,107 township governments, 21,782 school districts and 21,264 other special districts. • The number and variations are staggering. Some 20,000 to Separate But Equal Never will have to get in line, Some will do so voluntarily, others will be directed to do so by their state legislatures and a third group, probably a minority, will hold off until they are ordered to comply by courts, As for the remaining 60,000 local bodies, the ruling serves largely as an admonition that if they ever adopt the election-by- district system they cannot draw districts substantially unequal in population, Some of these 60,000 may be exempt. White's decision hinted there may be exceptions in the case of the "special purpose unit of government." The decision is not explicit, however, and the question of application awaits future court actions. Among the school districts, the impact of the ruling appears limited. Most school board members are elected at large. a Reality Mid ft Offset SENATORS (Ppom Page 1) the widespread neutrality of congressional Democrats. Only a handful supported Minnesota Sen* Eugene J. McCarthy or New York Sen, Robert F. Ken» nedy. Many have made themselves hard to find as agents of either McCarthy or Kennedy, now the only announced contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, bombarded their offices with efforts to win their support. White both McCarthy and Kennedy have criticized Johnson on the war, a third potential candidate, Vice President Hubert H, Humphrey, has been the President's strong supporter. Gore suggested this might hurt Humphrey if he seeks the presidential nomination, since the trend within the party seems to be away from ail-out support of the war in favor of renewed peace efforts such as Johnson launched Sunday night. Charged With Taking Bets LITTLE ROCK (AP)- Little Rock Police arrested Ralph H. Lafferty, 46, of North Little Rock Monday and charged him with soliciting bets on horse races. Lafferty's arrest was the 56th on charges connected with bookmaking since the opening of the Oaklawn Park race meeting Feb. 9. Lafferty was released on $100 bond.

Hope's new Chrysler-Plymouth Dealer sign in, please? LITTLE ROCK (AP) - State Education Commissioner A. W. Ford said Monday the doctrine of "separate but equal" education never had been a reality and never could have been. Ford said local tax structures, "power structures," and control of the public sschools were all in the hands of whites who had not been conditioned to Negro educational problems. Ford made the remarks in an interview taped for showing tonight on KETS, the state's educational television channel. "The degree to which a minority differs in appearance from the majority has quite a lot to do with the degree of discrimination," Ford said. Ford said Arkansas had a better attitude on desegregation than most Southern states. For also endorsed a statement by the so-called Coleman Report that desegregation should begin at the first grade rather than at the high school level. Continued Rain Through Wednesday Rain and cloudy skies moved over Arkansas Monday night and had covered all of the state by early today. The U. S. Weather Bureau said there will be occasional rain and a chance of thundershowers through Wednesday.

The new storm system will be slow in moving eastward, the Weather Bureau said. High temperatures remained in the 60s Monday with El Dorado recording a 67, the state's highest.
