Cleveland Over Hurdle CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Cleveland's school integration crisis, which was marked by violence at one school a week ago, is over a major hurdle.

That proposal calls for immediate integration at three predominantly white schools whose vacant classrooms were being used by classes transported from the predominantly Negro Hazeldell School. The Hazeldell pupils in the future will be considered as pupils of the receiving schools and will no longer be segregated, the board said. The UFM announced after a rally Wednesday night that it is calling an end t6 picketing and boycotts of schools and downtown stores also are canceled, the UFM said. The Collinwood Improvement Association, the predominantly white group involved, met Wednesday night for two hours but took no action on the school board's plan. KANSAS CFTY (AP) — Gov.

More than half of the 62 members of the Jackson County Republican Committee are among the directors of the club, Christopher said. "We respect the wishes of Gov. Scranton to serve the people of Pennsylvaia," Christopher said. "However, we top have a responsibility to our party and our country. We must nominate »iid elect as president the best qualified man. "We will meet this responi- bilUy by. providing Gov. Scranton with" evidence that in the opinion of all the people he Is the best man. Then we know he will recognize his higher duty- one of service to every American—and will accept the challenge of the nomination, the campaign and the presidency." Scranton, in Kansas City for a speech Wednesday night, said he wanted to remain as governor, had no ambition for national office, but would respond to a grassroots draft.

Mourning Starts In Philippines MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippines began 15 days of national mourning today for Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, hero of the islands' independence struggle at the turn of the century. Aguinaldo,. 94, died today at Veterans Memorial Hospital in Manila after his third heart attack in eight days. Nearly blind and unable to walk, he had spent most of the last four years in the hospital. His 82-year-old second wife died there last May. Philippine and American leaders joined in tribute to the old warrior who led barefooted peasants in independence campaigns, twice against Spain and once against the United States. Aguinaldo's body was to lie in state at his home on the south shore of Manila Bay, where he proclaimed Philippine independ- eifce and the first Philippine republic on June 12, 1098. Later it may be taken to the presidential Malacanang Palace. -• In WathiAjtoit Solon Convinced Of Defense Saving LBJ Has Eyes On Empire Votes WASHINGTON (AP) - In the news from Washington: DEFENSE SAVINGS: "The Secretary convinced me for the first time that he has saved some $4 billion," declared Georgia's tough-minded Sen- Richard B. Russell after three days of closed - door testimony by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara. "He has gotten away from the hectic days of World War I and the Korean War when many contracts were on a cost- plus basis, or awarded to see that the pie was shared fairly," said Russell, chairman of the Senate's Armed Services Committee and Defense Appropria- tee subcommittee. Under Russell, the two groups have been sitting together to expedite hearings on the ISO-billion-plus defense budget for the next fiscal year. Much of McNamara's "sub- stantial savings," Russell told newsmen Wednesday, are due to awarding more defense contracts "to the lowest bidder."

(AP)—Oregon's corporation commission has ordered a group of promoters to halt a scheme it has been selling under .<the slogan: "Own Your Own Beef Cattle Herd." Harold A. Lewis, assistant commissioner, reported the promoters sold cows at $300 with an agreement to feed and care for them and give the buyer half the offspring—at least 10 calves —after six years. Commissioner Frank J. Healy ruled a cow sold under these terms is a security, and he issued the desist order on grounds the promoters were dealing in unregistered securities. Lewis said the promoters used three firm names — Ranchland Engineers, Saddle Butte Ranch and Ranchland Management Inc. —and operated from Burns and Prineton, Ore. He identified the principals as Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Forslund of Richmond, Calif, and Thomas B. Tracy of La Mirada, Calif.
