12 Wednesday, 2, 1966 tow Silver Half Dollars Due Shortly WASHINGTON (AP) — Those new half dollars — only 40 per cent silver but still bearing the likeness of President John F. Kennedy. — are expected to begin flowing into American hands within the next two weeks. "We're trying to get them out as soon as possible/ 'Robert A. Wallaee, assistant secretary of the Treasury, said today. "We hope to begin circulating them in about a week or two." Wallace, whose jurisdiction includes the U. S. Mint, is hopeful the new coins won*t wind up the same way as the Kennedy half dollars containing 90 per cent silver which the Treasury began minting in 1964. In fact, he hopes the new halves will bring the older ones out of hiding. Through last Monday, 409,085.430 of the original Kennedy half dollars ha d been minted but despite efforts of the Federal Reserve System to place them in circulation they have virtually disappeared. Why? Only theories can be advanced, Wallace said .and the best one is that they've become mementoes of the late president. Many — exact numbers are unknown — have gone overseas, he added. Wallace said this is an emotional rather than a ratioqal response. The Kennedy half dollar will be the "coin of the realm' 'for at least 25 years, he said. Existing law bars any change in coin design for at least 23 years and then only by an act of Congress. Miss Eva Adams, director of the mint, said use of half dollars in change and vending machines also has contributed to increased demand. Although -minting of Kennedy half dollars containing 90 per cent silver will cease when the new coins begin circulating, the Treasury feels enough of the original coins will be minted to keep them from becoming collectors' items. With the exception of half dollars the Treasury thinks the acute coin shortage is over. "Except for half dollars, we're in better shape now on other coins than during any comparable period in the last 10 years,' 'Wallace said. Noon Call Stock Quotes (Courtesy of~Demps«y-T»geler & Co..

Cheese, Butter Off Surplus List WASHINGTON (AP) — The Agriculture Department has taken cheese, butter and non-fat dry milk off the shelf of surplus farm commodities it offers for sale. The agency said its supplies of these items are "temporarily exhausted" because of a recent decline in milk production. Officials expect milk production to increase in coming weeks. This could replenish the farm surplus sales list, they said. Commodities now on the sales list include cotton, wheat, com.

Adam Clayton Powell, I>-N.Y., to curb school segregation resulting irom racially unbalanced neighborhoods would hit hard at Northern cities, an Associated Press survey showed today. Nearly every public school in Cleveland would be affected. Half of the schools in San Francisco would come under the law. In Boston, 46 of 196 schools were declared racially imbalanced under a new state law. The bill, introduced in Congress Thursday by Powell, would withhold federal money from any school district that fails to Teach a racial balance in its schools that reflects the racial makeup of the whole community. The proposal would set up a formula requiring that the number of Negroes in any school a district could not vary more than 20 per cent from the number of Negro children in the entire district. .. n For instance, if 50 per cent of the children in a district are Negro, no school could have more than 70 per cent or less than 30 per cent Negroes. To acheive this balance school about half of the public schools in San Francisco, where the Negro school population is abou 25.5 per cent. This means tha schools with more than 45.5 per cent Negro enrollment or less than 5.5 per cent would have to be changed in order to continue receiving federal aid. San Francisco school officials say they see no practical means of ending de facto segeration at some schools. Two elementary schools in the Hunters Point District, for instance, are nearly 100 per cen Negro. Three near Chinatown are nearly 100 per cent Chinese The school administrators are opposed to busing children for the purpose of eliminating ra cial inequities. James A. Hazlett, superin of schools Mo., said he didn't know how many schools would be af fected, but said the proposa would reach almost the entire school population. He said Kansas City has an open enrollment policy and a present is busing at least 1,600 students to schools outside their neighborhoods. children apparently would havej In Boston, Thomas S.

CAP) — A court-ordered recess appeared possible today as a spreading county grand jury investigation of the state prison showed signs of stalling because of an absent witness. The jurors, in session since Feb. 16, are under orders from Dist. Judge Robert J. Bell to finish work by Friday. County Atty. Edwin Carman raised the possibility of a conflict over the closing date Tuesday when he pledged to have the missing witness, former prison guard T. L. Cope, brought before the jurors adjourn. Carman said the testimony of Cope, who disappeared Feb. 22 after leaving his job as a lumber salesman here, could be a deciding factor in the investigation. Cope left the penitentiary security staff late in 1964 during a State Crime Bureau study of alleged narcotic straffic at the prison. "The grard jury has requested his presence more than once, and I am determined that he will be found," Carman said. "As far as I am concerned this grand jury will stay in session until we can find him." Bell told the panel last week it should complete the probe by Friaay to make way for a term of district court starting next Tuesday. Bell indicated he does not want the jury in session when the regular court docket is called. The grand jury and trial juries use the same facilities. As resident judge, Bell said he has the authority to stop the grand jury if he deems such a step feasible. Any action by him | probably would take the form of a recess rather than an order to disband the jury.
