(AP Wirephoto Map) em Bookies and the eastern part of the WeatherForecast Japanese Students Pose Physical Threat to Ike By NATE POLOWETZKY TOKYO (AP) — Fanatical university students snowed today they could put President Eiten* bower in physical danger if he visits here next week. The question is: Do they want to commit violence on him? Screaming and shouting anti- American slogans, thousands of students and left-wing unionists besieged White House press secretary James C. Hagerty in a car outside the airport as he tried to drive into town. They beat and battered the car —and obviously could have done worse if they had wanted to-as Hagerty sat inside with U. S. Ambassador Douglas MacArthur H and White House appointment secretary Thomas E. Stephens. The students, members of the ultra left-wing organization Zen- gakuren, had advertised their airport demonstration as a "dry run," to show Hagerty what they could do when the President comes and to convince him to call off the trip. | Admittedly, there will be more police—acting a lot more aggressively—at the airport and along his route into Tokyo .on June 19 when Elsenhower arrives than there were when Hagerty and Stephens'arrived. But no number of policemen can keep thousands of determined students—not without plenty of bloodshed, anyhow—from blocking the streets. There is a body of opinion among Japanese, even those opposed to the visit, that there won't be any violence against the American President. They reason: 1. That the President will be traveling in a car with the Emperor and that this is his best protection. However, Zengakuren spokesmen have in the past made clear their disdian for the Emperor and his system. 2. The public reaction against an act of violence would be so great that Zengakuren, would be destroyed. 3. That today's demonstration will arouse Japanese public opin- 1 ion and strengthen the hand of the hitherto tolerant police, who have obviously lelt they didn't have a public mandate to reply to force with force.

(AP)-A teachers' strike for higher wages hit Granite City's public schools today on the last day of school Members of Local 743 of the Illinois Federation Teachers set up picket lines at all 15 schools well before classes were scheduled to start. The exact number of striken was not known. A number of teachers reported for class as usual. There are 400 teachers and 10,500 pupils in the school systerir The Board of Education has threatened to withhold paychecks from the strikers un less they report to work. • There was a flurry of meetings this morning, but no progress was reported. The board plans to go ahead with commencement exercises at the high school tonight, as scheduled. Harry Lane, a teacher at Coolidge Junior High School and a union representative, said teachers would report for classes if they can meet with the school board and if the dispute is submitted to arbitration. Some pupils picked up their resort cards despite the pickets. The strike could interrupt some planned construction and the city's summer school program if it continues. Teachers are seeking a new top scale of 57,794 for the next school year. The top now is $6,696. They also want, corresponding increases for lower salary levels. The district Board of Education has offered a maximum of $7,OfiO. 10,000 Japanese (Continued From Pago 1.) labor union members besieged Hugerty after his arrival from Okinawa to complete arrangement for Eisenhower's visit.

The Johnston firm was founded Oct. 1, 1880, by the late Hugh kirkxvood Johnston, a native ot Scotland, who was the first superintendent of Alton Water Works. Mr. Johnston rented a building, at State street and W. 2nd (now W. Broadway). Later he acquired three other buildings, as the business grew.

Rocke-j ' FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1980 98 Homes In Recent Annexation In an estimate prepared Thura« day afternoon from a plat map, Township Assessor James P. Gorman found that 98 residences win be brought into Alton through the annexation enacted by the City Council, Wednesday night. The latest annexation covers 241 acres to the north of Upper Alton. • And a coincidence noted by Gorman is that the Wednetday annexation brings into ttM City the same number of homes is did the somewhat eartier "pot- handle"annexation of a 85.3 acre area immediately north of Alton Senior High School. Together, the two latest annexations seem to have brought at least 200 dwellings and two business places into the dry, said Gorman. His count of 98 dwellings yesterday, he said, is likely a trifle low. He believes there may be a few new homes not yet entered on the maps he used for the preliminary count. The annexation of the 241 acres north of Upper Alton said Gorman, increases the total area of Alton city to 10.15 square miles. The city had an area of 1.14 square miles at the end of 1958. Thus in a period of 18 months the city area has increased 3 square miles, the, largest addition coming from the Milton annexation of last December. In making his count of homes in the latest annexation yesterday, Gorman said, the major streets covered were Fairvievv, Gayle, Keene, Woodcrest, Velley, and sections of Humbert, North Rodgers, North Seminary, and Washington. Bowl Haven and the Logan drive-in and a section including 30 homes between Humbert road and the Municipal Golf Course are not included in the annexed areas. This section of Wood River Township is completely surrounded by Alton territory. surance covered $43,000 of the loss. Mr. Johnston rebuilt, and constructed a common front for all the buildings. The firm was famous in the hardware field for a number of years because all its officers were women — Mrs. H. K. Johnston, and her daughters, Mrs. Elizabeth Duffield and Miss Mary Johnston. H. K. Johnston died in 1923, and Mrs. Johnston in 1929. Mrs. Duffied died three years ago. Harry K. Johnston, son of the founder, took an increasingly active part in the business, following his service in the Army in World War I. In recent years. Miss.
