The eighth meeting of ambassadors is Wednesday. The Chinese Nationalist hailed the second stage of the cease-fire as another Communist defeat, but were suspicious both of Communist intentions and of the talks in Warsaw. Sampson Chen, government spokesman, declared "we should , jiaot let down our guard' because The Communists .probably would use the next two weeks to prepare their next move There was speculation that the Nationalists were now prepared to reply with a massive bombardment of their own if the Red Chinese again open up.

Urges Court to Keep Ban on School Use ST. LOUIS (AP)—A court order permanently banning use of public high school buildings at .Little Rock, Ark.,, for private and segregated institutions was urged lo- day by the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People. A brief filed by the NAACP said the Little Rock school board at some time "must realize that the federal constitution and the federal courts are supreme." H "That time is now," the briaf .stated Three judges of the U, S\, Eighth CU'cuirt ,Court'df Appca]j>-wili,'C0n; duct a hearing on the matter'horc Wednesday, A temporary restraining order against leasing the buildings has been exlended until that time. The Justice 'Department'also has filed a brief supporting the NAACP, Tomorrosv is rf the deadline for the filing of briefs and there has been none from either the Little Rock School Board or the Little Rock Private School Corp, The .case came to the appeals court on an appeal from a ruling by Federal Distict Judge John E, TVliJle of Arkansas. He refused to accept jurisdiction in the case, saying constitutionality of Arkansas laws are involved. Judge Mille ruled such questions could 'be decided only by a special 3-judgc court, The NAACP and the Justice Department both took issue with .this view.

The iiisintrmmt • laden vehicle didn't make it to the vicinity of the moon.- But the Air Force claimed big gains In scientific ln» formation from the nearly iwo^day flight of the rocket, which reached a record of about 79,120 miles into space the Pentagon announced early today that the world's first krtown moon probe plunged back into the atmosphere at about 11 p. m. Sunday. It was assume dPionecr then burned up from friction. Pioneer's final dive was believed to have come at a point over the south Pacific. There were no immediate reports of any visual sightings of the rocket's finish. The Air Force issued this death notice for the moon missile It launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., before dawn Saturday; "The Hawaiian tracking station lost contact With the U. S. Pioneer lunar probe vehicle at 11:46 p. in (EDT) "It was the last tracking station ... to receive signals. "Analysis of the data received by the Hawaiian station indicates that the Pioneer re-entered the earth's atmosphere at approximately 12 midnight (EDT) and is assumed to have burned up upon re-entry. "The re-entry point was esli-' mated lo be over the south Pacific Ocean. ..." The 85-p'ound lunar probe fell short of the hoped-for goal of --going into orbit some 50,000 miles from ' the moon, 'But in traveling about a third 'of the ,222,000 miles to the moon, it achieved the dcp- cst penetration yol. by $ manmade vehicle into the vast universe, ' Scientists said it radioed v valu- ?blc data /»back to earth on Mts lonely jpurjicy , Among 1 ", othor J things,' the'experience of.-Pioin.-pr Auto Production Picture Brightens n DETROIT (APJ—Thd 'auto pro- dtictinn picture brightened today as some 15,000 Chrysler workers Went back to Work.

Schrievcr, who has over-all responsibility for the Air Force moon rocket program, spoke .at Inglowood, Calif., where the' Air Force as been digesting worldwide tracking reports on Pioneer, At the same time, Schriovor claimed the rocket's 79,120-mile altitude inark, is more than 27 times greater- than any ever be-/ fore achieved, The An 1 Force said this permitted the first direct measurements of the earth's magnetic field up to that height Further, the Air Force said Pioneer hit the fastest speed ever recorded by a rnan-msde vehicle — more than 23,450 miles an hour, THEY WENT THATAWAY AURORA, ll\.

Beycrlcin was found beaten to death near his store in early 1957, The same night the store burn«»d and Mrs, Beycrlein was found dead inside it. Mitchell pleaded guilty lo first 'degree /, murder "in it . the dealh. '-of Beyerlein and wa'sr sentenced 'In life imprisonment, , HKE PLE D guilty to second degree murder in the -.death of Mrs, Beycrlein and was-senlcnecd to 21 years on that coiml, Mitchell did not appeal In customary fashion, but later sough' to have the sentence set aside under the post conviction act adopt;. ed by the 1057 Legislature. This act provides for cancellation of sentences tinder certain circumstances even after a direoi appeal has been rejected or is no longer possible. In its unanimous opinion, wri r - tpn by Chief Justice Corleton Har vis, the Supreme Court today said the now act was not intended as a substitute for an appeal nnd thai Mitchell could have raised in a direct appeal the points ho presented in his petition to have thi judgment set aside, And the court said that one of these points would have resulted in a reversal if it had been presented on direct appeal. This was the fact that Pulaski Circuit Judge William K, Kirby instructed a jury lo find Mitchell guilty of first degree 'murder and "fix. his punishment at life imprisonment in accordance svith an agreement between attorneys, , The Supreme Court said it was the duty ot the jury and not the judge to determine the degree of homicide, Mitchell contended that he did not understand ho was pleading gujjty to murder. f}e also contended the confession he rnadc was forced rather than voluntary.
