Stassen said the disarmament question again would be placed before the U.N. General Assembly. Undecided Future Stassen comes home from the defunct London arms talks to face an undecided future. Some administration officials said Stassen would almost automatically begin work on preparations for a major disarmament debate with Russia in the U.N. General Assembly. But they reported that no decision has yet been made on what role Stassen would take. Some officials speculated that the 50-year-old Stassen might sooner or later want to leave the government or take some assignment not connected with disarmament. business, a lesson, prayer, and refreshments.

Hagerty provided no detail on that conference. The new law repeals a post- Civil War era law authorizing the President to use troops to enforce court orders in civil rights cases. But administration officials obviously feel Eisenhower has other powers for the handling of that situation. The President, however, instructed aides to keep him carefully posted on any developments in the integration case. Hagerty told a news conference Civil Rights ....

Attack Negro Leader at School BIRMINGHAM, Ala. <*!—A Negro pro-integration leader was attacked by a group of white men Monday as he sought to enter several Negro students in all-white Phillips High School here. The Rev. F. L. Shuttlesworth, | one of a group of Negro parents who had sought' to enroll their children in white schools earlier, was beaten when he drove to the school. After Shuttlesworth was hit several times, he made his way back to his automobile and drove off. Three white men were taken into custody by police. in Monday's shipments.

The arms are intended to counterbalance weapons the Soviet Union has been pouring into Syria. Other pro-Western countries surrounding Syria are also receiving U.S. arms. Surface shipments are being made to Turkey, Iraq and Lebanon. President Eisenhower said Saturday he hoped any possible Communist infiltration of Syria would not push Syria to aggression. Jordanian officials had no official comment on the statement. But in Damascus Syrian officials followed the line expressed in one newspaper that "this statement is new proof that the United States is looking for a pretext to launch aggression against Syria." "It also proves," the daily Al- rai Alaam said, "that America aims at engineering some incidents on Syria's border to justify an anti-Syria action under the Eisenhower Doctrine on the grounds Middle East ....

The Weather Bureau said extreme northwest Iowa will start feeling the effects of the cooler air Monday afternoon and that scattered light showers will advance southeastward across Iowa behind the cold front. Sunny skies and light southerly winds pushed temperatures into the 70s in all parts of Iowa Sunday. High temperatures ranged from 74 at Dubuque and Mason City to 79 at Cedar Rapids. The mercury dropped into the I upper 40s and lower 50s around the state Sunday night. Davenport, Dubuque and Lamoni shared the state low of 48 degrees.

FORD LITTLE ROCK HP) — White students threw back six Negro youths who tried to enter North Little Rock High School Monday—the first actual violence of Arkansas' turbulent racial crisis. North Little Rock, a separate city, is immediately across the Arkansas River from the integration-torn city of Little Rock. About 10 white students met the six Negroes at the top of the steps leading into the school. They grabbed the six, hustled and shoved them down the steps and across the campus almost to the street before police broke up the trouble. None of the Negroes suffered injury. 6 Policemen on Duty No national guardsmen were on duty, but six policemen guarded the school, which opened Monday for the fall term. The North Little Rock School Board once ordered iimited desegregation, then, postponed the action after the National-Guard was called up and kept Negrbes out of Little Rock's Central High School last week. North Little Rock fs a city of about 50,000, about half the size of Little Rock. Call for Reinforcements The North Little Rock police immediately called for reinforcements from the state police. Policemen at the scene said no National Guard help was sought. At 2,000-pupil Central High School, where fresh national guardsmen kept watch Monday in a week-long struggle between the state and national governments over racial integration, all was quiet Monday morning. A crowd of about 350 spectators gathered across from Central High as in previous days but no incidents occurred as school opened and no Negroes sought admission to the school. At North Little Rock, the six Negroes made two attempts to enter. After they were shoved and pushed away from the building on their first try, school Supt. F. B. Wright walked out of the building and gestured for the Negroes to follow him into the school. Adults Join In Once again they climbed the steps. Reinforcements flocked to the white students. Five adults joined them. One adult, identifying himself as L. E. Stroud and father of a girl student, shouted, "They shall not pass." When Wright sought to escort the Negroes into the building, a burly youth shoved himself in front of the group. "If you want to stay in this school, you'd better get out of the way," Wright told the youth sharply. "I'd rather get out" the boy said. He was echoed by similar cries from the crowd. An estimated 150 persons surged around the Negroes. Wright gave up and told four Integration See Page 8 Roy Easrlunds Moving to Denver Mr. and Mrs. Roy Eastlund, Ti,n Trtiua i ^vere enrolled but these were mi-; sons ' Larrv and Don, and daugh me iuwd | . „„.,,„„ iter.

"The only real purpose in conducting a tour through our cornj fields is to acquaint them with how Americans work and live," Garst said."Only about three per cent of Poland's total acreage is in corn and that is a much earlier variety than our varieties," he said. The Polish delegation is headed by Jan Kielanowski, director of the institute of animal physiology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Other members of the party will include Jan Bojanczyk and Dr. Bogumji Szerszen, of Polish Ministry of Agriculture; Prof. Tndeusz Ruebenbauer, a corn expert; and Dr, Eugieniusz Pijanowski, of the CentraJ Agriculture College in Warsaw, The invitations have been sent' the Car . ro1 . 1 Municipal Airport.
