If the school board formally adopts the proposal, it would be at its meeting Monday. The crisis over transported pupils was the cause of demonstrations and violence the past week. Demonstrators who blocked some doorways and corridors in the downtown school board headquarters were dragged from the building. Paddy wagons hauled 20 demonstrators to Central Police station, where three were charged with obstructing an officer and tvo with assault and battery. All were later released. Although most demonstrators went limp when hauled off to jail, there was some scuffling, and four policemen were treated for cuts and bruises. The proposal w«* fashioned by the board, UFM representatives, Mayor Ralph S. Locher, members of the Community Relations Board, leaders of the Hazoldcll Parents Association and the Collinwood Improve- mert Association. Hazcdcll is the overcrowded school from which the 800 pupils have been transported to the three East Side schools In primarily white neighborhoods for the last two years. The Colllngwood group Is made up of persons from the neighborhoods where the three receiving schools are located. The elementary schools are Brett, Memorial and Murray Hill.

(AP) - A 100 car freight train rumbled Into a cloud of gas fumes drifting across the tracks and a moment later the cloud exploded in a towering mass of flames Tuesday night. The Santa Fe train, Its five dleaet units knocked out of service by loss of power, rattled to a halt. Beside the tracks, about 100 yards away, flames roared 200 to 400 feet high from a pit marking a break in a propane gas pipeline.

Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman said Tuesday. Freeman was here to address' the 18th convention of the National Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. He said most of the opposition to the wheat program rejectee" by farmers in a referendum last summer hinged on the fact that it was compulsory.

Information Minister Alalu Ffcyrefitte, the Cabinet spokes- nfan, said the legal basis for a peace-keening force would be Up 1959 Statute of Zurich con- cfrning Cyprus. Peyrefitte was referring to the!;<HI^;defeated, but the man-] datory features' have been removed'. The program calls for a price support loan of about $1.30 a bushel.. A.farmer who held to allotments would get two certificates, ' one representing his' share of domestic consumption at 70 cents a bushel and the other his share pf exports at 25 cent*. ,, Thus, assuming a market value at the loan price, $1.30, a participating farmer would get f2 a bushel on part of his crop and $1.55 on the other part. A non - participating farmer would have to take what he could get on the open market- Freeman' was asked; If the market value went above the loan level, say to $1.50 a bushel, would a farmer still get a 70- cent certificate, giving him a total of $2.20 a bushel? The secretary said he assumed that he would, but that this was one of several details remaining to be worked out. Freeman also was asked whether this would not lead to an increase in the price of bread, but replied that a final analysis had not been made on this possibility: deaths Cloud* C. Whitehunt Claude C.

He was bom at Erie Oct. 21, 1881, and came to Grant County in 1923, and to Lakin in 1944. He married Etta Miller Dec. 16, 1909 in Eureka. Mr. Phelps was a retired farmer and a member of the Methodist Church. Survivors include the widow; two sons, Edgar, Lakin, and Jefferson, Ulysses; ters, Mrs. Dorothy two daugh- Howard, American Pipeline Co. closed valves on both sides of the break. Three of the five train crewmen suffered slight burns and were treated at the scene by Missouri Highway Patrolmen. The diesels and some of the freight cars were scorched but didn't catch fire. Another locomotive was sent out from Kansas City, about 80 miles away, to take the train on into the city. The pipeline carries propane from Tulsa, Okla., to Janesville, Wis. Propane is a heavy gas which becomes liquid under pressure. Firemen said they thought the line started leaking and a spark from the train ignited the fumes, resulting in an explosion that broke the pipe and blasted a hole 30 feet across. No buildings are near the scene, about a mile east of Bosworth, and no other daamge was done. Kenneth Macoubrie, who lives a quarter mile from the spot, said the blast shook his house. "The whole sky lighted red," said his 15-year-old daughter, Jane. "It really shook us up." "The engineer told me he saw the gas fumes drifting about four feet above the ground just before the explosion ocurred, and that he thought it was fog," Macoubrie _ said. The injured trainmen were Rex Robertson, engineer, > and H. A. Wright, fireman, both of Marceline, Mo., and V. C. Griffen, head brakeman, of Bucklin, Mo. William Eastin, conductor, and A. E. Henry, rear brakeman, both of Marceline, were uninjured in the caboose. The towering flames were seen at Chillicothe, 30 miles to the northwest. Other Santa Fe trains were rerouted until the fire burned out. 35 Witnesses In 4-Day Period JACKSON. Miss.

Waller called 35 witnesses in an effort to prove Beckwith, 43, ambushed Medgar Evers. Even, 37, was state field secretary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He was killed by a sniper when he stepped from his car at his home here last June 12. Waller's final witness, Dr. F.G. Bratley of Jackson, testified that a new pink scar arched over Beckwith's right eye could have been due to a blow from a telescopic sight jolted backward by a rifle's recoil. Evers was killed by a bullet from a 30.06 Enfield. A rifle of that make, equipped with a telescopic sight, was found carefully hidden about 150 feet from the sniper's nest where the killer lay in wait. No witnesses said they actually saw the killer.
