American military policemen | stood Riiard at schools attended j hy American children and rode j on school buses. U.S. soldiers patrolled other American installations. Some of the same Vietnamese police strongarm men who were assigned last summer to roughing up Buddhists and Western newsmen were on duty at the American schools along with the U.S. servicemen. They included Inspector Lam Van Ly, one of Saigon's most feared judo experts and strong- arm men under President Ngo Dinh Diem's regime. About 2.500 American civilians live in Saigon, including military wives and chldren. The total of Americans in the capital, counting servicemen and officials, is believed to he about 10.00!). U.S. officials denied any consideration was being given to sending civilian dependents hack to the United States. The terrorist campaign continued Monday night with an attack from ambush on three American military men. One was wounded slightly when a grenade was hurled at their car. Unconfirmed reports said the Viet Cong rebels were circulating leaflets saying "Two Americans a day." The Joint Security Council, composed of three Vietnamese and three U.S. security officers, held its first meeting Monday. Premier Nguyen Khanh assured U.S. Charge d'Affaires David G. N'es. that the Vietnamese government is giving special attention to the American security problem.

Clt* 1>lpfriiiii febrvWy Ifi, 2 Pianos, One Fine Program Two keyboards added up to one fine program at Clifford Hope Auditorium last night. The Garden City Community Concert Assn. presented duo-pianists Howard and Patricia Barr. a man and wife team from Fort Worth, Texas, who make beautiful music together. An estimated 1,000 turned out-for the event — the season's third concert. Almost as impressive as the keyboard artistry of the tall Texan and his attractive wife are their perfectly matched concert grand pianos. The fine Instruments are carried in a special trailer pulled behind the Barr's own automobile. That last nljM'i program was "heavy" for the average concertgoer Is debatable. We *ren't a particular niano fan, yet we en- Joyed the Barrs and did not become restless. Another male's reaction of "contented drowsiness" resulted, he said, from a "warm balcony and comforting music." Outstanding among the fine renditions on last night's program were, in our opinion, the "Scherzo, Opus 87" of Camille Saint-Saens, and Darius Mil- hand's "Scaramouche". For pure orHnvtvont. and a change of pace which Is the key t > the crowd-success of any piano concert, the encore numbers of Dmitri Shostakovich's Polka and the ever-popular "Deep Purple" with some fine lighting effects long will ho remembered. Indication of the Barrs' reception here were four encores, and generous applause throughout the evening. Before, during intermission, •nd after the concert, memberships for the 1964-65 season were being sold to current members. Next year's season will be highlighted by appearances of Fred Waring end his Pennsylvanians on Nov. 13, and Rise' Stevens, metropolitan opera star. Actual drive for new members Ivon't get underway until next week, but memberships are expected to go fast. This year's rnembers have another treat in store wilh the guitar-playing Romeros coming on Tuesday, Mnrch 24. They are getting nation-wide acclaim with recent appearances on network television. J^ast night's program, and all others hero, are well worth the price. — BB. markets LOCAL PRODUCE E98* Extra Large A't • Eggs A't Larg* .3) Eggs A's Medium .31 Eggs A'« Small -JO Eggi C'i .11 1ft Grade Cream .SO Heavy Hens .11 light Hent .N LOCAL WAOON PRICES Wheat Sl.M unchg Milo >1.60 unchg.

Rockefeller goes to New Hampshire Wednesday for throe days on the campaign trail. in other developments: Sen. Paul Douglas, D-I11., said during an interview at Lincoln, Neb., that he doubted either Gold'vater or Rockefeller would hn the (!OP nominee. "As of this moment, the most logical c-mdidatc" is former Vice President R'chnrd M. Nixon, Doug- ias said. But he added he f"' 1 Henry Cabot Lotl«c would be the "strongest" candidate. Astronaut John H. Glenn Jr. was fonmally certified as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Senate in Ohio. He meets Sen. Stephen Young in the May 5 primary. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., plugged Rockefeller's candl- d^cv in Detroit and said the GOP must adopt "progressive policies" and nominate a "progressive candidate."

By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Press New* Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has decided to cure a kind of national paralysis in which politicians wouldn't budge to give voters fairer representation in Congress and state legislatures. For years the court was too timorous to do this. It said it didn't want to butt into the political field. It took its first big step two years ago, another Monday. I See...

Sheryl Etllng, Garden City freshman at Kansas State University, competed hi the junior division Saturday at the McPher- sou College Debate Tournament. She was one of four K-Staterg at the tournament. J. E. McBride, 3MV4 N. 6th, has received a copy of the Valdosta, Ga., Times which devoted a full page and pictures to the new Forrest Park Church of Christ at Valdosta. His son, E. Wayne McBride, is a deacon of the new church. The younger McBride has visited his fattier here, and is an employe of the Valdosta newspaper. Keith Henderson, Garden City, placed third in the annual Kansas Co-op Council speech contest, it was announced today. Winner is Dale Schrag of Inman. Contestants gave their talks Monday night before the annual Kansas Cooperative Directors and Managers Conference in Manhattan. First it tangled with state legislatures and now with Congress. Congressional districts, like state legislatures' districts, have been lopsided for generations. One district with 500,000 people might have only one representative in Congress, or a state legislature, while another with only half that many people might have just as much representation. This has worked to the advantage of the rural population, to the disadvantage of the growing cities. Forty state constitutions required regular redistricting every 10 years or oftener to give voters in all sections more equal representation. But for generations some state legislatures ignored their own constitutions. Congress has looked the other way on this question of equal representation in districts electing members of the House. The Senate is not involved. Every state, big or small, is entitled to two senators. Does a court have the right to interfere with the way Congress or a legislature provides for election of its members State and federal courts skipped around the edges of this for years. ^ A femows teit come to the Supreme Court in 1946 — a case from Illinois—where populations oi districts varied from 133,000 to 839,000. But the court wouldn't tell the legislature to redistrict. This is a "political thicket," the then Justice Felix Frankfurter said, backing away. He suggested the remedy for unfairness in districting is to get the state legislature to do it. This was aucking the issue. By this reasoning the problem would probably have remained unsolved a few more generations for a very simple reason. If the far outnumbered rural population of a state dominated a state legislature—to the disadvantage of the much bigger city populations—they weren't going to let the arrangement •» changed. ' Two years ago the Suprema Court reversed the reasoning of 1945—in a case from Tennessee —by deciding lower federal courts may decide whether city voter* are unconstitutionally discriminated against in the apportionment of legislative seats. In Tennessee the state constitution required reapportionment j every jo years because of population shifts but there had been none since 1901. This decision wi , a political shocker. It did more to stir. | state legislatures than anything i in history in the voting field, i Since then about 35 states, un- I der the spur of the decision and j the drive of cities and suburb'! I have taken some steps to re*district. But this is a slow, painful road. Then Monday the court said congrssional districts in the states — it was just talking of Georgia but the ruling applies generally—must be arranged to give "equal representation for equal numbers of people" so far as practicable. The court ha* set down no exact measuring stick for populations in a district. It said districting must be fair by population. It relied on the Constitution for its authority, of course, citing those sections which speak of apportionment by numbers and give protections to citizens' rights.

A Cadillac owner remains comfortably insulated from the distraction and din of the heaviest midtown traffic. And we think that this remarkable characteristic tells a great deal about the quality and goodness of this extraordinary new Cadillac creation. First of all, it indicates the car's high level of craftsmanship. Every J964 Cadillac, in fact, now undergoes more than 1400 teparate inspection!. It indicates, too, how Cadillac's combination of func* tional styling, scientific soundproofing and advanced new suspension have reduced to an almost unbelievable degree the sounds normally associated with travel, And, even more importantly, it speaks of the car's great engineering. Cadillac's dynamic new engine operates with flawless precision, despite its record power. Its new transmissions, both the Hydra-Matic and the Turbo Hydra-Matic, translate that power into smooth, hushed response . . . and combined with exclusive True-Center drive line, virtually eliminate vibration. If you have not yet driven a 1964 Cadillac, you will find it a most revealing experience. Your dealer will have one ready any time that's convenient. Just let the car's imaging quiet do the talking.
