Special events for the summer AMATEUR SURGEON Pope Paul (Continued from Page One) the canon law revision that Pope John started anrl to support the policies of social justice outlined by his predecessors. Along these lines, he advocated aid to underdeveloped countries and suggested "a voluntary study on a universal scale for the improvement of the conitions of life." However, he made it clear that the Ecumenical Council was chiefly on his mind now. "The pre-eminent part of our pontificate will be occupied with the continuation of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, on which the eyes of all men of goodwill are focused," Pope Paul said. Principal Work "This will be the principal work, for which we intend to devote all the energies which the Lord gave us so that the Catholic Wood River Township Sanitary District will pay a St. Louis bonding firm eighth-tenths of one per cent of the bonds issued for handling two proposed issues io construct a sewer system. Terms of an agreement with Stifel Nicholas & Co., of St. Louis were announced today by Aaron Martin, chairman of the district board of directors. Martin said he was announcing the agreement with the bonding company to "get back on the right track" and dispel any "misunderstanding" that may have grown out of a story in the Telegraph Friday which said that he had refused to divulge the information. Martin said he had demurred over he question of payment to the can attract all men Church to it." Pope Paul did not say when he would reconvene the Council. It was believed unlikely that the assembly would meet Sept. 8, Pope John had scheduled. Considerable preparatory work must be done, and this was suspended on Pope John's death June 3. The 65-year-old Pope had oftsn spoken with views similar to Pope John's. Pope Paul's keynote speech today left little doubt. The Pope spoke after each of the cardinals advanced one by one to his papal throne before the altar in the Sistine Chapel. They wore their great capes with long, flowing trains. Pope Paul wore his white bishop's miter and a gold-embroidered stole. Each cardinal knelt before the Pope and kissed the ring on his right hand. When 87-year-old Maurilio Cardinal Fossati of Turin advanced, Pope Paul arose from his throne and, smiling, stepped down two steps, to meet the aged cardinal. No Change Here in Remap Plan was enacted •esidents of the district might not! ' understand the full scope of the vork the bonding firm is doing. The district, which includes Rosewood Heights, Forest Homes and Cottage Hills will vote Saturday, June 29, on a proposal to ssue $965,000 in general obligation Donds for construction purposes. In addition, the board proposes to ssue §2,335,000 in general obligation bonds, also for construction purposes. Eight tenths of the total is approximately $26,400.

For its fee, Martin said, the Stifel Nicholas firm will pay the bonding attorneys for the legal opinion, prepare or have prepared all ordinances and brochures, will advertise for bids on the bonds, be represented at public information meetings, have the bonds printed, and otherwise assist in getting the building program financed. "We are going to have com petitive bidding for these bonds, not a private sale, and the stature of the bonding firm, we feel, will influence the bond-buyers," Martin said. meaning that favorites are seldom chosen.

He told police he apparently fell asleep at the wheel and the car crossed the center line, jumped the curb and hit the pole.

Russia Firm On Talks With China MOSCOW (AP)—The Central Committee ot the Communist party has directed its negotiators to stand fast against the Chinese Communists in their showdown ideological negotiations scheduled here July 5. The directive was voted In the final plenary session Friday of the Central Committee and published today in Pravda, the Communist party newspaper. The Central Committee, the Soviet Union's ruling body, also accused the Red Chinese of breaking an agreement not to conduct their war of words in the open. tt denounced the Chinese for a letter that accused the Soviet Union of going soft against the Western powers. The Central Committee declaration appeared to leave no room ior negotiation of an agreement with China. Chinese Communists have taken an equally hard position against the Soviet Union. Their attacks on Premier Khrushchev hardened during the Cuban crisis, when they accused the Soviet premier of capitulating to President Kennedy. The Chinese 63-page letter of June 14 was read to the Central Committee. It attacked almost every major current tenet of the Soviet faith in the doctrine of peaceful coexistence outlined by Khrushchev.
