Ship Sunk TAIPEK, Formosa Of) — The Chinese Nationalist air force said its warplanes sank a 1,500-ton Communist warship and damaged a smaller vessel today near Sanmen Bay, 150 miles south of Shanghai. The air force said eight 500- pound bombs sank the warship and an unannounced number set an 800-ton ship afire and apparently left it sinking. All Nationalist planes returned safely, the air force said. This was the first time Nationalist aircraft have attacked Communist warships since the fall of Hainan Island off China's south coast in 1950. Nationalist planes have been increasingly active recently. On two occasions last week they battled Communist MIG jets and claimed one was damaged. The Nationalist Defense Ministry reported a lone Nationalist warship sank one Communist vessel and damaged nine others yesterday. REACTION (Continued from Page 1) Blytheville Woman's Mother Succumbs Mrs. Charles Howard of Cape Girardeau, Mo., mother of Miss Avis Howard, member of the Blytheville Junior High School faculty, died this morning in Cape Girardeau. Services will be conducted in Cape Girardeau Thursday. She had been ill several weeks. INDOCHINA RELIEF — It may only be temporary, but Norman Thiel happily points to a sign which allows him parking space in Pittsburgh, Pa. City officials ordered the signs to relieve the parking shortage caused by the transit strike. (Continued from Page 11 caught at Dien Bien Phu when it fell. Rebel Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap insisted that the French must hold their fire on the highway so his own wounded could be moved. The French contended later Giap actually was using the highway to funnel troops and war materiel toward the Bed River delta, seen by the French command as the next big rebel target. When the French found they coUld move only 11 wounded in two days by helicopter and small planes, and Giap refused to permit repair of the airstrip to let bigger planes land,; the high command said it was no longer bound to hold off its air strikes. It said that such an airlift would take at least a month and by then Giap could move out all his men and materiel. Assistance Offered Late last night the French commander in chief, Gen. Henri Navarre, broadcast an offer to supply engineers and heavy equipment for putting the shell and trnch-pocked Dien Bien Phu runway back into shape on condition that both men and materiel be returned after the operation. He asked that once the mercy flights were resumed .no ceiling be placed on the number of planes allowed to land and take off. The six-point French proposal made yesterday called for: (1) Repair of Dien Bien Phu's airfield to let in larger planes for airlifting the wounded. (2) removal of the wounded at the fastest possible rate, (3) cessation of air strikes on the Dien Bien Phu-Son La highway to permit the rebels to remove their own casualties, (4) removal of rebel-imposed barriers on evacuation of wounded Vietnamese, (5) creation of mixed commissions to decide who would be evacuated and to insure that nonhospital vehicles did not use the Dien Bien Phu-Son La highway, and (6) French medical aid and air transport to French hospitals for gravely wounded rebels. Navarre pledged the rebel wounded would be returned to the Vietminh after their recovery. . . . the letter* stan.

Gov. James F. Byrnes of South Carolina, another of the leaders in the fight to preserve school segregation and himself a former Supreme Court justice, said he was "shocked to learn that the court had reversed itself." Byrnes some time ago declared his state would refuse to go along with a decision to end segregation. Gov. Hugh White of Mississippi said he would call for an early meeting of the state's Legal Education Advisory Committee, the group given the assignment of finding* means to maintain segregation regardless of the Supreme Court's decision. Special Session Asked Various state officers in the South called for immediate special sessions of state legislatures to study problems and map legislation, but the only governor who said he might call a special session was Acting Gov. Charley E. Johns of Florida. He didn't indicate what his position would be. Hollis Rinehart, chairman of Florida's Board of Control, which exercises supervision over the state's universities, called for immediate preparation "for the integration of Negroes into our institutions of higher learning and our elementary schools." Rinehart, who said he was speaking only for himself, said he be- lives integration can b« accomplished without legal action by the Negroes "providing white leaders take the necessary steps" to cooperate. Gov. Allan Shivers of Texas summed up the views of many Southern officials. He said it might "take years to comply" with the ruling. The "wait-and-see" attitude was taken by top state officials in Virginia, Louisiana. Arkansas, Alabama, West Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee. But the governors of most of the states were busy today getting committee work lined up and summoning legal advice. Gov. Lawrence Wetherby of Kentucky, a Border state, announced his state will try to adjust its public education system to comply.

O. Poetz. Elected Chief of the Tribe was Bob Lee Smith, while Newton H. Whitis was elected tally keeper and Stevie Stevenson was named torn torn beater. Other offciers were Coleman Stevens, wampum bearer; Warren Whitis, Indian runner and Ben M. White, national tallykeeper.

Partridge has been named professor of air and science at Eastern Carolina Teachers College, Greenville, N. C., the Air Force announced yesterday. Col. Partridge is the husband of the former Miss Jean Baxter of Blytheville. SEGREGATION (Continued from Pagt 1) the Conway Board of Education, said he "believes the problem will be worked out satisfactorily but not without some readjustments." Eugene J. Landers, principal of the Pine Street Negro School in Conway, said his students were "quite elated over the decision." Most Ljttle Rock residents, asked at random, received the decision with a great deal of comment but without excitement. One white father of three children, who aren't in school yet, said he "thought it was about time" the Court put an end to segregation in schools. Negroes who were contacted either said they were glad segregation will be ended or they said they hadn't thought much about the problem. The general consensus was that the time delay needed to set up the mechanics of non - segregation would be adequate to work out the problems. Mrs. Jack Benton of North Little Rock," mother of two children, said she had "nothing against colored people, but doesn't believe in mixing races like that in schools." Dr. Oba B. White, a Negro physician in Little Rock, said "the decision is as it should be. I don't think there'll be as much stress in the transitional period as some people anticipate." Uneven Impact Harry S. Ashmore, executive editor of the Arkansas Gazette, seemed to sum up the problem involved by saying: "The impact of the Court's ac- tion will not be felt evenly throughout the South. There is every reason to expect segregation in local schools to survive for a good many years in many districts on a voluntary basis." Ashmore headed a study of bi-racial education in the United States, financed by the Ford Foundation's Fund for the Advancement of Education. The Court'/s ruling yesterday found no school segregation suits pending in Arkansas Federal courts. However, more than a dozen such cases have been settled in Arkansas since the first was filed in 1949 against the DeWitt School District. Although no court action is pending, petitions have been filed in Several Arkansas school districts. The petitions charge that Negro children aren't getting education opportunities equal to those of white pupils. School officials at Sweet Home, Hot Springs and in the West Memphis-Hulbert District have been asked to provide equal facilities for .Negroes. And a suit calling for the equalization of salaries for Negro and white teachers has been filed in Little Rock federal court against the Gould. District in Lincoln County- Condition of Negro Gun Victim Improved Arthur Griffin, Negro, is reported improving from an abdominal gunshot wound received Saturday night near Number Nice, according to officials at the Blytheville Hospital. Lucius Jackson, Negro, of Number Nine is being held in county jail for the shooting, which Jackson told officers was an accident. W. Missco Rood Aid to Be Asked Among ti*e delegations asldng for action by the Arkansas Highway Commission Thursday will be one composed of Blytheville resid- dents headed by County Judge Phillip Deer. They will seek inclusion of Route 1295 between Poplar Corner and the Missouri state line in the federal aid system. Missouri has already blacktopped the road to the state line, but the route between there and Poplar Comer is now graveled. The request is for it to be blacktopped also to connect with the hard-surfaced road at the state line.
