After announcing yesterday tft\t it will seek to set up high school classes in private buildings and operate them with donations, the corporation issued an appeal fo.'f funds and facilities. 'Dr. T. J. Raney, corporation president, revealed that the program does not include any plans lor the 700 Negroes who normally •jtcnd Horace Mann High. ^The city's senior high school students now have been out of classes five weeks past the normal fall opening. Gov. Orval E. Faubus closed the high schools before they opened, He said he did so to prevent violence such as occurred at Central High a year ago when integration took place with military support Dr. Haney said that if the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals (fjillifies an earlier plan of leasing Kittle Rock's four high schools, "we will immediately begin school in other quarters." The court holds a hearing Monday on a petition for a temporary injunction to bar the school board from leasing the four high schols to the corporation.

It was tile first figure revealed on the quantity of such explosives. These high explosives comprise the major hazard associated with accidents involving atomic weapons, the Atomic Energy Commission and Defense Department said. ".Even though nuclear weapon? are so designed as to prevent a I nuclear yield in the event of accidental detonalion. there is still a probable hazard commensurate with conventional weapons and materials. The two components of a nuclear weapon that constitute! the most probable hazard in thi' case of an accident arc (1) tho high explosives and (2) the plu- tonUim," they said in a statement. Plutonium is a ' potentially poisonous radioactive material which might become dispersed during an accident. It would be a hazard if inhrled. The agencies offered these instructions to anyone approaching an accident-in which it is believed an atomic weapon is involved: 1. Attempt to save lives whero possible; otherwise, keep awav from accident area. 2. Notify the fire and police departments and in addition, ,thp nearest military -installation"'npart- j quarters or AEC office, * - v i 3.
