"Three or four deputy minis- •ters together with other top officials will be replaced," Interior Minister Josef Pavel told the Czech news agency CTK.

The shake-up in the police department came to light on April 12, when Pavel disclosed that he was separating the secret police from the regular civilian police services, This move was recommended in the Action Program oT party chief Alexander Dub- cek, helmsman of the new liberal course.

The university said the school would be open but there would be no regular classes, About 12S members of an ad hoc faculty group voted Tuesday to "respect" a student strike. There were indications, however, that the faculty of about 4,000 was substantially split over whether to back the strike, The senior faculty meeting did not endorse the strike, A student strike was announced by J, Michael Nichols, executive vice president of the undergraduate Student Council, a few hours after 1,000 city policemen moved onto the campus during the night Tuesday and stormed five university buildings that had been occupied and barricaded by students, A hundred youths and 15 policemen were reported injured, none seriously, in the club swinging, fist fighting, pushing, hauling and kneeing as the embattled demonstrators were routed from their strongholds.

The suit, filed by Rep. Allan Dishingh of Little Rock in behalf of five taxpayers, contends that Home granted the 17.3 per cent increase in liability rates April 18 on inconclusive and incomplete evidence and refused to allow all of the evidence to be presented. The suit also charges that Home based at least part of his ruling on recommendations by Steele Hays, a Little Rock lawyer hired by the insurance department, who the suit said was not qualified through train- At yesterday's regular Kiwanis Club meet at Town & Country a certificate of appreciation was presented to J.

DANNY TURNER Danny Turner, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Z. Turner and a Hope High School senior, is the 1968 Future Farmers of America Outstanding Member. Presentation of this award was made in an assembly at the high school this morning. Several years ago the FFA chapter voted to give the award to a member, excluding any officer, who had made the most personal growth in character, leadership, and particularly dependability. Danny has, according to the FFA executive board, met these requirements. For example, as head of the cleanup committee for the recent rodeo, he more than fulfulled requirements. His crew arrived at the coliseum at 6:15 Sunday morning and had the place spotless by 8 when a general crew arrived. He was especially dependable Wednesday, May 1,1968. In the arena at the Rodeo iftke'ef* ing between the bulls and thejun* iof riders as they fell, "I know that when I give Dan* ny an assignment It will be done, He fulfills the real meaning of the key FFA word- dependable," explained Troy Buck, adviser, Proclamation WHEREAS music plays an in* creasingly important role in our world today; and ',;.

Marion Crank of Foreman, a Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, has also charged there may have been a conflict of interest involved in Home's ruling since Hays was an attorney for several insurance companies affected by the increased rates. The petitions called for a temporary restraining order to keep the rates from going into effect until the matter is decided and asked that Home be directed to hear additional evidence and testimony before granting an "exorbitant rate increase."

I '«' f nn'.ivrio r when President Mendez fired three top officials including Defense Minister Rafael Arriaga Bosque. The president's decision, it is generally believed here, has stripped rightist terrorists of official protection and pacified the non-Communist lent. It has also neutralized an effective source of Castroite recruiting propaganda: militarism in government. Still to be seen is just how far-left militants, given a respite from military pressures, will respond to the changes. The abduction of Guatemala's archbishop, Msgr. Mario Casar- lego, last month is regarded as a catalyst in bringing the explosive Guatemalan situation to an anticlimax few local or foreign observers had anticipated. The kidnaping of the 58-year- old prelate was the far right's boldest and most desperate bid to bring down Mendez. The now-apparent objective was to make it appear the abduction was the work of the far left and thus turn Roman Catholic sentiment against the government, which the rightists claim is Mil. trated with Communists. There was little or no public Your family will move outdoors with you to enjoy response, however, because it was quickly established that the rightist terrorist group MANO was responsible. The Guatemalan Curia exhorted Catholics to remain calm and refused to deal with the kidnapers who had issued an ultimatum that unless Mendez resigned the archbishop would be killed. He was released March 20. The archbishop had been in Mexico on church business and was kidnaped March 16 as he was being driven from the airport to his home. barbecuing at its best with a Gasgrill by Arkla.
