Youth, 12, Breaks the IQ Barrier CLEVELAND t*>— The parents of 12-year-old John Francis Schivell have a problem. Psychologists told them their son's level of intelligence is so high it caji't be measured by standardized tests and most public schools are inadequate for his intellectual gifts. A strapping 150-pounder who stands 5 feet 6, John is wrapped up in physics and mathematics ■nd says he wants to become a "research scientist." He is a freckle-faced bespectacled eighth-grader at suburban MapU Heights High School, where he gets straight A's. "Broke Through" Two years ago, during routine testing by Kent State -University psychologists, testers said John "broke through the top of the Stanford-Binet intelligence test In tests by the department of psvchology of Western Keserv University, John attained a perfect ecore in such areas as language development memory, ability to com-pare and contrasc ideas and con cepts and recognition of words, according to Dr. Corrine F. Baker, assistant clinical professor there. The boy spends his spare time reading technical publications, studying foreign languages, and is currently absorbed in a Diograpny of th» late Albert Einstein. Dr. Baker said : "It is easily seen that John is out of place among boys of his own age. He has adult reading habits and" is bored with school, because there is insufficient challenge. Scores 190 Dr. Baker said John recorded the highest possible score of 190 in a series of IQ tests in which average children register in a range from S5 to 114. John's father, a layout inspector In a factory, applied for a scholar-ahip for the boy at a private acad emy, but says he cannot afford the $800 yearly cost for tne boy rom, board and books. Two Tots Smother in Icebox EAST ST. LOUIS (J) — Two 3■year-old East St. Louis children smothered to death Tuesday when they were trapped in an abandoned ice box in a neighbor's garage. The victims were Robert Lee Ballance, son of Mrs. Edna Mae Ballance and Nancy Anne Cygan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cygan. Mrs. Cygan and Elmer Ballance, Robert's grandfather, found the two children unconscious in the ice box after an hour'3 search. They died a short time later at Christian Welfare Hospital. Authorities estimated the children had been in the upright box for more ' than 30 minutes. They apparently opened the door, •queezed into the small food compartment, about two feet by two feet, and were trapped with the door slammed shut behind them. East St. Louis police said they would seek two warrants charging Julian Gilliam, owner of the ice box with violation of a city or dinance which forbids abandoning ice boxes and refrigerators where they are accessible to children un less the doors have been removed from their hinges.

Farm Penalty Lifted by New Legislation WASHINGTON tsi — A bill to repeal one of the penalties on farmers who do not abide by acreage controls in the farm price support program was sent to the White House Tuesday. The Senate approved the iiouse- Dassed measure by a voice vote after rejecting by a 49-35 rollcall a compromise proposal. Tne Agriculture Department has en dorsed it. The bill would abolish a provi-on of the 1954 farm law which denies soil conservation benefit payments to any farmer who know- ngiy violates acreage auor.menr.5 on basic crops. These, are corn, heat, cotton, tobacco, nee and peanuts. It would leave unchanged tne government's main weapon for enforcing compliance with acreage quotas — the right to impose di rect monetary penalty levies against violators.
