Viet Nam Nearing Violence SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) —A faith which for thousands of years has preached poverty, self denial and nonviolence exploded this week into a ghastly human sacrifice in the middle of a busy Saigon street. More ritual suicides have been promised by Buddhist monks and nun's involved in Tuesday's suicide by fire of a 72-year-old monk. The monks are speaking in a new tone, one which presages more bloodshed and might even topple South Viet Nam's government, headed by President Ngo Dinh Diem, a Roman Catholic. South Viet Nam's Buddhist leaders explained their position in a communique. "For thousands of years," it said, "the Buddhist religion has | been generous and forgiving. Be cause of this, Buddhism has always practiced peacefully in this country. The priests and faithful have been terrorized. Despite this, we have avoided making trouble, not because we are cowards or weak, but because, for the moment, the country is at war, and we must share this suffering." "But unfortunately there are a number of people who use their powers to make trouble for our priests and faithful all over the country. In the face of these injustices, we are obliged to rise up and fight for our theology."

House Ups State Aid To Schools SPRINGFIELD. 111. (AP> - A drivp led by two Illinois House members to boost state aid to schools beyond the figure set by Gov. Olto Kernel 1 has moved to the Senate for a final legislative decision. The House passed the measure. 167-1. Thursday in deciding 'hat aid to grade and high schools should be hiked by S32 million during the next two years. The lone dissenter was Rep. R f ie Heiple. R-Washington. Even Kerner's legislative leaders, including Democratic minority leader Paul Powell. Vienna, joined in backing the bill which would raise the guaranteed state level of support from the existing $252 per pupil to $297. Powell said money *.o firmiv.'e the increase might come ;r >rn an other pending bill to transfer the $32 million from funds reserved for highway construction. Roud Fund Many legislators, however, have regarded the road fund as a "sacred cow" that shouldn't be touched for anything but highway purposes because it is fed by gasoline taxes. Reps. Charles W. Chbaugh, R- Champaign, former clvurman c,f the Illinois School Problems Com mission, and Rep. Anthony Scar iano, D-Park Forest, have been heading the move to disregard Kerner's recommendations on state aid. The governor has allocated a two-year total of $433 million for schools. It is $40 million more than the current biennial appropriation but the increar.e will only take care of higher enrolments and will not change the $252-per pupil basis. Scariano told the House that he and Clabaugh were not hitcning the increased aid to a transfer ot road funds or to new taxes. He said the schools must liave more funds or face curtailment of their programs. Another Russian Cosmonaut In Orbit; May Get Company Savings Clabaugh suggested that enough money might be saved from ceilings imposed on public aid payments to handle greater- school aid. Clabaugh has been pushing for an increase since March, when he and the school problems commission were turned down by the Illinois Budgetary Commission. Without more aid from the state, Clabaugh contends, local property owners will have to bear an estimated $400 million increase in school costs in the next two years. The approved bill carries a provision for higher local tax r;ites to obtain state aid. It .-aises the qualifying levy for grade and high school districts from 54 to 65 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, and from 67 to 81 cents tor elementary-high school unit districts. Under the aid formula, the state makes up the difference between the amount produced by the local qualifying rate and the guaranteed level of pupil support.

He hinted at least one more cosmonaut may- join him in what may be another space venture lasting several days. The launching puts the Soviet Union one ahead of the United States, which announced the end of its Project Mercury space flights two days ago. The new cosmonaut was identified as Lt. Col. Valeri Fedorovich Bykovsky. 28. from a small town near Moscow. His craft is named Vostok V. The Soviet news agency Tass said "the pilot himself reports, and the telemetric system confirms, that he satisfactorily withstood the putting into orbit and the transition to a state of weightlessness and that he feels well." Tass reported the space craft was orbiting the earth once every 88 minutes from altitudes of 112 miles to 146 miles. The capsule was reported circling at a 65 degree angle in the equator and broadcasting on 20.006 and 143.625 megacycle frequencies. Russians had made four orbital flights and Americans four in the space race launched in earnest in the spring of 1961. The latest was the 22-orbit flight in Faith 7 by Maj. L. Gordon Cooper Jr. who was launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., May 15. The Soviet Union was first, sending Yuri Gagarin on one circuit of the earth April 12, 1961. The Soviet Union holds the record for duration of flight, 94 hours and 35 minutes, established by Nikolayev in mid-August 1962 with 64 orbits. Also in space in a teamed flight during part of that time was Popovich. Thrust of the Soviet power plants is estimated at 1.3 million pounds. That of the Atlas, used on U.S. orbital launching, is 362,000 pounds. Soviet space capsules have weighed about 10,400 pounds. Those of the American Mer.'ury program totaled about 4,200 pounds. Others Leonard, elected deputy were: grand Harold knight; Edward Weaver, chancellor; William Hartmann, recorder; Eugene Schulz, treasurer; J. Dale Stobbs, advocate; Gordon Rubenstein, warden; Robert Prullage, inside guard; William Adamson, outside guard and Paul Van Buren, trustee. Following the K of C meeting, directors were elected for the Spaulding Club Assn., which operates the local K of C building. They are: Edward P. Long, William Keller III, and William Pohlman.

Study Alton Sewer Plans For 3 Hours ITS THE SPIRIT It may not have been the largest flag displayed today on Flag Day, but it carried more spirit than the thousands of homes which showed none at all. This one flew from a porch post at 1202 E. 7th St. City Council Has Weighty Session Wednesday night's busy, 4- hour session of Alton city council was a record breaker in two respects, City Clerk Paul A. Price reported today. The meeting required the use of more "minute slips" than any council meeting since he was elected 14 years ago. And the quantity of documents handed aldermen to carry home was the heaviest ever prepared by his office, Price said. "Minute slips" represent the number of items of business disposed of at a meeting. And when the journal, recording proceedings at the meeting, was completed yesterday afternoon, it was found that 77 minute slips had been used in recording the actions taken. Documents placed in hands of the aldermen in connection with the meeting weighed 1% pounds, it was said by Deputy Clerk Mike Waide. They were so numerous that curiosity as to their weight was checked before they were distributed to the aldermanic desks before the meeting. Heaviest of the items was the typed copy of the proposed Part 2 of the revision of the city ordinances which alone weighed \Vz pounds. Its weightiest section was the chapter containing the proposed new traffic code.
