"go ahead" signal on a moreOhan $300,000 building change program was given their building committee by the First Presbyterian Church's boards of elders and trustees Monday night. The action set a $390,000 limit on cost of the .work. The building committee headed by Dr. Robert Lynn immediately moved to summon low bidding contractors on the program's four phases for a further conference on their proposals Thursday night. Increased costs had sent the low bids over the preliminary estimates of the architect. Bringing the total cost of the building improvements closer to the resources available from the recent building fund campaign largely engaged the efforts of the two boards. The church seeks to completely remodel and expand its sanctuary into adjoining current Sunday school room to the north; replace the present parish house with a new building that will include a chapel, a reception room, a fellowship room, and additional Christian education space; remodel the ground floor of the old building to provide greater meeting and recreation area; air condition the entire building; and make some readjustments, along with air conditioning of the newly-completed education building to the north.

Southerners Plan to Elect President JACKSON, Miss. (AP)-'The South shall rise again in 1964" is the rallying cry of 1,000 Southerners backing a move to throw next year's presidential election into the House of Representatives. They were named charter members Monday night of the Southern Committee to Elect the Next President of the United States. The call—as in the unsuccessful 1948 Dixiecrat movement—was for unity as Govs. Ross R. Barnett of Mississippi and George C. Wallace of Alabama thundered defiance of the federal government. "The issue is not the South versus the North, Republican versus Democrat or integration versus segregation. The issue is freedom. Freedom is not equal and equal men are not free," the principal speaker, Tom Anderson of Nashville, Tenn., editor of Farm and Ranch magazine, said at the $25-a-plate dinner. Barnett said "misuse of power" was one of history's great tragedies. He called for a fight against what he termed federal encorach- ments. Barnett and his supporters originated the elector plan and pushed it to passage in the Mississippi Legislature. It allows state party conventions to name two slates of presidential electors, which would be presented in a primary after the national nominating conventions, one slate loyalist and one un- pledged.
