Hawks, professor of psychology and child development at I o w% State College as the keynote speaker. Plans for group discussions to take place during the day were made at a meeting of group leaders with County Supt. B. G. Halverson and County Curriculum Co-Ordinator Mildred Middleton, Thursday night, at Carroll High tee. coupled this proposal with a ] suggestion that the United States ask the United Nations General Assembly to set up international controls over arms shipments to the Middle East. The Assembly is to convene in New York next week. Push Arrangements The senator advanced his proposals in an interview as the United States pushed arrangements to speed defensive weapons to four nations bordering pro- Soviet Syria. Officials said the decision to speed up deliveries of previously promised arms to Jordan. Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq was made in part to symbolize American determination to support those nations against any aggression, subversion or other pressures from Syria. The governments of Lebanon and Jordan, both strongly pro- Western, were described here as Consultants Consultants for group discussions, in addition to Dr. Hawks, will be Dr. Ray Bryan, head of the vocational education department at Iowa State College, Ames; Bernice Helff, associate professor of teaching at Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls; John Montgomery of Des Moines, Polk County supervisor of elementary education; and Herbert R. Hatch, principal of Meeker Elementary School, Ames. Theme of the institute will be "Improving Parent-Teacher Communication As a Means of Fostering Pupil Development." Group discussions will be held at 10:20 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. with ten faculty members from county schools assigned as leaders of each group.

Hickey of New York a Teamsters vice president, said after an AFL-CIO hearing on the charges Thursday that "1 think they'll put us out." Several other Teamsters chiefs privately shared that view. But some highly placed AFL CIO officials said they were not so sure of a Teamsters ouster. These chieftains held hopes, despite little firm evidence, that the Teamsters will adopt substantial reforms at their Sept. 30 convention in Miami. See Conviction They said as things stand now, the federation's Ethical Practices Committee and its Executive Council will convict the Teamsters on charges of being corruptly dominated. Teamsters leaders told the AFL- CIO Ethical Practices Committee Thursday they intend to submit all corruption charges against the union to their Miami convention. They also said they would propose revising Teamsters rules to give members a greater voice inj INSPECT NEW BLACK-TOP . . . which is being applied on two road projects in Carroll county and one two-mile stretch in Audubon county near Gray.

The statement announcing the Eisenhower-Dulles conference said Dulles had received a first-hand report from Loy W. Henderson, deputy under secretary of state, who returned Wednesday from a two-week flying visit to the Middle East. During this trip, Henderson conferred with leaders of Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. Henderson, the statement said, "found deep concern lest Syria should become a victim of international communism and as such become a base for further threatening the independence and integrity of the region." Mansfield said, the speedup in delivery of U.S. arms to Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq, may bold back aggression by Syria "and perhaps .allow dissident elements in that country to re-establish order on a reasonable basis."

She denied them and said her removal was an "unethical political maneuver to get around the federal civil service law." She said she was preparing an appeal to the Federal Civil Service Commission. The Des Moines post, office is the largest in the United States headed by a woman. She has charge of 900 employes and is j paid a salary of $11,400 a year. Her notice of removal came from J. W. McKibben Jr., assistant postmaster general in Washington. The Post Office Department is under Republican control. Miss Johnson's policies in dealing with Earl L. Curtis, assistant postmaster here, form the basis of several of the accusations. Curtis, originally from Council Bluffs, became assistant here in May, 1956. She also was accused of not delegating responsibility and not cooperating with Curtis, of "continuous and willful opposition" to the supervision of postal district operations officers here, failing to effect economies promptly and lack of respect of her superiors in handling a mail delivery complaint. In a statement filed with the Post Office Department, Miss Johnson called the report "an utter absurdity" and said many of the charges were "obviously trivial and (without) relation'to the 'efficiency of the service." candidate to succeed Beck.

Orval Faubus said in a telegram to President Eisenhower Friday that he has notified the U.S. district attorney and the FBI that . his personal attorney and the director of the Arkansas state police "are available to discuss certain evidence upon which I acted to preserve the public peace." A short statement handed to newsmen by an administrative aide ended with this sentence: "I shall cooperate in upholding the Constitution of Arkansas and the nation." Claude Carpenter, who distributed the news release, said that he was not authorized to comment. • Faubus himself has not beeh seen by newsmen since his last news conference Wednesday morning here. His entire statement Friday was less than 100 words. Presumably Faubus was answering President Eisenhower's request earlier this week that the governor cooperate with federal authorities. Arrest 8 Youths Meantime at Central High School, watchful National Guardsmen blocking , racial integration took six white university students from Minneapolis into custody Friday and released them a short time later. Carpenter exhibited ~ a huge stack of telegrams—he said there were more than 1,000—representing what he termed congratulatory messages lauding the governor on his action in calling out the National Guard to prevent racial integration at Little -Rock Central High School. Ask Decree Suspended- The Little Rock School Board has asked.U. S. District Court here to suspend an integration decree and a hearing is scheduled on the petition Saturday. Carpenter declined to reveal the governor's whereabouts and said "no one is authorized to speak" for him. Meantime at the high school watchful Guardsmen took six white University students from Minneapolis into custody y Friday and released them a short time later. State Police Capt. Alan Templeton said all were ordered released. Other state troopers who escorted the youths from the school quoted the six as saying they would continue their pre-school vacation trip to New Orleans. A dozen newsmen tried unsuccessfully to question Gallinson as two Guardsmen took him rapidly down the street. The reporters heard Gallinson describe the knife as a "souvenir" and tell the Guardsmen he was on a "sightseeing tour." Gallinson, who had a camera shing around his neck, was mistaken for a news photographer for a time. Smaller Crowd Heavily armed Guardsmen still ringed the high school Friday, but a smaller crowd of demonstrators appeared across the street from the campus. The future of the smouldering integration crisis appeared to be in the hands of a diminutive federal judge who will hear a school board plea for a truce.

This cost compares with an average of about $6 per ton for Class B and $7 per ton for Class A (conventional black - topping) on equivalent type contracts, Professor Csanyi said, Economy Goal "Our ultimate goal is to break the $5 barrier," he said. "That means we want to reach the point where this surface can be applied on the road at $5 per ton or less and we think we have the answer in an innovation known as the foam process," he said. Professor Csanyi explained that 'foam process will replace the position in the state government, The board has been authorized She lived before coming to Iowa He was paid $13,500 a year when he quit.
