Ark. m — Only white, students went to class at Little Rock Central High School Tuesday while about 200 white adults stood outside the ring of national guardsmen placed there Monday night by Gov. Orval Faubus. None of the nine Negroes scheduled to enter the 2,000 -pupil high school showed up apparently in compliance with a school board request. The board called off the scheduled integration early Tuesday after the governor ordered the troops to the school grounds in effect halting the planned race mixing.

ESTHERVILLE UrV-There's no law against philanthropy, says; Sheriff Linn Foderberg 'in commenting on a series of cash gifts sent by an anonymous giver, to several persons in this community recently. Foderberg is convinced he now has sufficient evidence to prove the benefactor's identity if there were any need to do so—which there isn't. An estimated 20 persons received in the mail cash gifts ranging from two cents to more than $200, in each case the gifts were mailed in-brown wrapping paper. When coins were included they were taped to a piece of cardboard.'/The gifts -generally have been in odd denominations. The total amount given away may be as much as $500, return address or any other obvious clue to the identity of the donor. The recent series of mailings marked the second gift splurge of the modest philanthropist. Two of the most recent recipients received similar gifts a year ago. But none of those benefitting from 1 the unexpected largesse have any explanations to why they were favored. Jim Matre, local postoffice em­ ploye, was among those who received one of the mysterious packages with cash in it. He also recognized 12 to 15 packages wrapped similarly tcrTiis, ... \.

A music program, taught by the teachers in all three schools, provides opportunity in listening and rhythmic activities, music appreciation and includes graded courses in sight-singing — modern music, as well as the traditional Gregorian chant of the Catholic liturgy. Private and class instructions are also given in piano, string and wind instruments, and the students of all three schools participate in the Catholic grade school orchestra of more than 60 pieces with children from other Catholic grade schools in the area. DYO Competition Through the Diocesan Youth Organization, the pupils of the three schools compete with the more than 15,000 Catholic grade school pupils of the Sioux City diocese in music, poetry, poster and dramatic contests. All three schools also participate | in the federal school lunch program and in the special milk program sponsored by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. In these programs, the schools receive supplementary aid directly from the federal government through an office in Chicago because, the state of Iowa does not permit such aid to parochial or private schools. In all three .schools the same women have charge of the lunch program as last year; St. Lawrence, Mrs. Margaret Underberg and Mrs. Louis Wadle; SS. Peter and Paul, Mrs. Harold Bayer, Mrs. Ed Hannasch and Mrs. Herman Bengfort; St. Joseph, Mrs. John Rothmeyer.

Military Vehicles About a dozen National Guard jeeps and trucks were parked bumper to bumper in front of the school and a half-track weapons carrier — with the weapons removed—blocked one street.

The claim is for labor and materials to repair a 100 -pair telephone cable which was cut while commission employes were working last March at the site of a new commission office in Jefferson. Severance of the cable cut off telephone service to the north end of Jefferson until repairs could be made. The commission maintenance office said it had no immediate comment on the interruption in its telephone service. The Jefferson Telephone Co. is managed by C. H. Daubendieck. C. V.

Some 500 white students were in the building about 30 minutes before classes were scheduled to start and the crowd thinned down considerably. Maj. Gen. Sherman T. dinger, Arkansas adjutant general, arrived on the scene a few minutes before the start of classes and said that he was pleased to see the crpwd so orderly. He estimated the number of guardsmen at 250. Clinger would not say whether the troops will be pulled out Tues' day. Later a Negro newsman, L. C.

ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON Wl — President Eisenhower, commenting on Russia's intercontinental missile claims, said Tuesday mere testing of such weapons is a long way from actual production. Eisenhower made the statement at a news conference when asked whether he could give the American people any information on the status of this country's efforts to develop an intercontinental ballistics missile (ICBM). The questioner askecf for com-' ment in the light of the Soviet Union's announcement last week that' it had successfully tested such a weapon. Eisenhower replied that anything he said had to be within the framework of national security. He went on to say that careful reading of the Russian announcement marked it more for what it did not say than what it actually did say. Reds Evasive ! The President called the Soviet announcement most evasive. The Russians always have been known for statements which serve only their own purposes, he said. Eisenhower said that in the past the Russians have been something less than completely reliable, and added that on this occasion he saw no reason for placing more credence than usual in the Soviet announcement. As for this country's progress in that field, the President actually said nothing about the status of work. He did say many millions of dollars have been spent within the capacity of available scientific knowledge and what,he called the whole arrangement. The missile program has the highest priority, he said, but added that it will be a long time before a long-range missile is the best means of delivering explosive power. Eisenhower, leaving Wednesday for an extended vacation at Newport, R.I., dealt with these other matters: INTEGRATION — Eisenhower said he has conferred with the Justice Department regarding the halting of integration at Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., and that the department is investigating. Qov. Orval Faubus ordered national guardsmen to the school grounds, and the school board halted planned integration despite a federal court order providing for it. Sees Eventual Victory As to the school integration picture generally, Eisenhower said we are going to whip this thing in the long run by Americans' being true to themselves and not by laws. CONGRESS — Eisenhower replied not much when asked whether anything had happened to change his assertion two weeks ago that he was tremendously disappointed in the performance of the 85th Congress, which adjourned its first session last Friday. The President touched off a round of laughter by pulling a sheet of paper from his pocket and saying he had a little list dealing with the record of Congress. On the credit side Eisenhower listed enactment of such measures as the Middle East anti- Communist resolution, creation of the International Atomic Energy Agency, passage of the ciyil rights bill, and the bill designed to safeguard FBI files. On the debit side of measuros asked but not enacted, Eisenhower ticked off proposals for protection of welfare and pension funds in the labor union field, to restrict highway advertising, an emergency, corn program, tax reduction for small business, insurance against floods and a postal rate increase. Aid Fund Insufficient Finally, Eisenhower said the foreign aid appropriation of some $3,400,000,000 is not adequate. On that latter point he spoke at length, saying that the mutual security program provides the best protection against what he termed a monolithic dictatorship. He also called foreign aid not only the cheapest and most economic kind of protection, but the most e{fee« tive. Mrs. William Wiemanti, 67, Audubon, was killed Sunday night when struck by a car while cross- of injuries suffered Aug. at in a collision which took the lives ql two of her sisters.
