Students of 'Philander Smith College last spring figured in a number of lunch counter sit-ins. But the school with an enrollment of 500 has dismissed regular classes for summer vacation. Only a few students are attending summer school classes. Casper said he did not know how many students, if any, were in the college building when the bombing attempt was made shortly after midnight. The FBI, who first announced the arrests in Washington, refused to say how it happened to have agents lying in wait. FBI agents and police swarmed over the school warehouse area. Streets around it were barricaded. Neither Casper nor police were ready to Jink the explosion with the dynamiting attempt at the Negro college. All Casper would say was, "we are investigating." Police chased a car at high speed about 30 minutes after the bombing. The car;. struck by a bullet, turned over at the south edge of Little Rock. The occupants escaped in nearby woods. Casper said the two men picked up at the scene of the college bombing attempt were Emmett E. Miller, 44, and Robert Lloyd Parks, 38, both of West Memphis, Ark.

This was about one million greater than a year ago. The comparison excludes Alaska and Hawaii, which were not counted in the Bureau of Labor Statistics tabulation last year.
