Cost of Living Rises in June By Four-Tenths WASHINGTON (AP) — Living costs in .June rose four-tenths o: one per cent to a record high the Labor Department reported today..

The June index at 106.6 compared to the 100 base for 1957-59 and was 1.2 per cent above last year. The, figures mean it cost $10.66 to buy in June the same living cost items which could be boughi for $10 in the 1957-59 period. Arnold Chase, assistant commissioner for prices and living conditions in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, said the June increase was due primarily to high er prices for food, housing and medical care. In addition, sales taxes were increased in several cities. Sharply higher sugar prices were a major cause of an advance in average food prices in June. Sugar prices rose by 32 pei cent and were 44 per cent above a year earlier. On v the whole, food prices averaged 1.4 per cent higher thai a year ago. Restaurant meals were 2.2 per cent higher.

Will Soon Have Bomb, Say Chinese TOKYO (AP)-A high Chines Communist official asserted todaj his country will have nucleai weapons "in the not too distan future." The prediction was made b: Kuo Mo-Jo, chairman of thi China Peace Committee, in an address at a rally of 10,000 per sons in Peking commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Kor can armistice signing, the New China news agency said. The present attempt of a small number of countries to con trol the destiny of the people o the world by means of monopo lizing nuclear weapons will als< certainly be smashed in the no too distant future," Kuo Mo-Ji declared. "We revolutionary people wil surely be able to master the new techniques which the imperialists have been able to master." Western and Japanese officials have predicted that the Chines would be capable of exploding a nuclear device possibly within the year. But it was believed the firs time a responsible Chinese offi cial had given such a strong bin on the subject. Kuo's statement was obviously Peking's reaction to the limited nuclear test ban signed in Mos cow by the Soviet Union, United States and Great Britain. He gave no details nor exac timetable of when China may de velop a nuclear weapon.

The meeting was announced 'hursday by Clair M. Roddewig, iresident of the board, following a session with representatives' of he Congress of Racial Equality CORE) and the Chicago Urban GOP Nominates Committee To Reorganize Districts CHICAGO (API — The Republican State Central Committee worked today on a slate of 10 nominees for a commission to, re- vampIllinois' General Assembly House- districts. But it was a reluctant job for the GOP leaders whose nomination list must be submitted to Gov. Otto Kerner, a Democrat. Kerner will pick five nominees and five from a similar Democratic list to form the redistricting commission. Victor L. Smith of Robinson, state, GOP chairman, indicated that the committee members are more interested in final discussion' of a suit the party will file, asking that a remap plan adopted by the legislators and vetoed by Kerner be validated. "The members have little confidence that a commission can agree," Smith said, "and it looks as if we'll get into the confusion arising from a House election at large. "There'd be 400 names on an at large ballot, with voters standing in line and people in the booths taking 30 minutes to sort out candidates. A great many voters wouldn't get to vote." Smith said the 24-member central committee faced considerable discussion over selection of re- map commission nominees, but time would be made to discuss legal aspects of a suit. One such suit already in the courts will be studied. The action, by State Rep. Gale Williams, R- Murphysboro, asking an injunc- I WE DO OUR OWN FINANCING AT SLACK FURNITURE and APPLIANCE 8Q, 203 W, Third Sf^Dswntswii Alton ' Unj Termfr-Many, Many Monttu to Pay! tion to restrain Kerner from appointing a commission, was dismissed in Sangamon County Circuit Court and is now on ap peal. Smith said the new suit proba bly will concentrate on challeng ing Kemer's right to appoint a commission. , Under provisions of a 1954 amendment to the Illinois Consti tution, failure of the legislature to redistr'ict the House on a pop illation basis .every 10 years a the first session after publication of census figures required th governor to appoint a commission to do the job. A commission is allowed onl> four months to agree upon new boundaries. If it fails to do so election of 177 House members from the 59 districts must be con ducted at large, Smith said it will, be the GOP contention in a suit that Kernel cannot appoint a commission i the legislature agrees on a House remap bill. This, Smith said, wa done. SAVE WITH THRIFTY S. D. P. UTO INSURANCE Through the Safe Driver Plan your rate is based on your own driving record,-Why4>ay for the careless and reckless driver?

The agreement to meet is expected to end demonstrations at the board's downtown offices svhich resulted in a clash with police July 17 and brought the arrest of 13 persons. "I feel there will be no more sit-ins before the ,July 30 meeting," said, Sam Rlley, who has offered his, resignation as Chicago chairman of CORE but still holds the post pending action by the members. "I hope we will have no reason for a sit-in after the July 30 meeting." Items o n the agenda include proposed withdrawal of charges against the 13 persons arrested in the demonstrations. Roddewig, when asked about his item, said disposition of the •harges was up to the state's at- orney, ' ' "But we will have our attorneys alk with the state's attorney," he added. The agenda for.. Tuesday's meeting nlso Includes, "open en- ollmenl - for - integration of all schools." Terrorists Loose 86 Still Missing in Caracas By PAUL FINCH CARACAS, Venezuela (AP)— Venezuelan troops and police combed Caracas today for 86 Communist terrorists and common criminals who fought their ivay out of a crowded prison in a gun battle that left at least 5 dead and 51 wounded. About 200 of the 816 terrorists and criminals at Reten La Planta jrison—in a residential section of Caracas — participated in the break Thursday. They overpowered 40 guards and poured out of the prison gates and a hole in a wall under construction. Troop reinforcements drove back all but 102.. Sixteen were rounded up' shortly afteiv ward. '; ' ' '.'... Scattered automatic fire was heard in parts of Caracas during the night. There were reports of a number of robberies and shootings. Prison officials said imprisoned members of the Armed Forces of National Liberation, known also as FALN, incited criminals to join them in the break. The FALN, known for sabotage and attacks on Venezuelan and U.S.-owned installations and businesses, has vowed to overthrow President.. Romulo Bqtaricourt's democratically elected government and set. up a Castro-style regime. Some sources suggested the break was timed to coincide with today's 26th of July anniversary marking , Prime Minister Fidel Castro's initial attempt 10 years ago to launch a revolution in Cuba. Negroes contend there is de ncto segregation in Chicago's mblic schools, which operate on a neighborhood basis. Pupils In uch school as -a result corre- pond racially to the racial character of their living area. CORE has demanded an "open nrollment" policy, effective in September, under which pupils v o u 1 d be allowed to attend chools outside their home dis- ricts. Other subjects Roddewig and he Negro leaders have agreed to discuss Tuesday are integration of school faculties, provisions for access to information about school capacities and boundaries, and redistricting of high schools or integration. ; ",. ~X<-£, •* ",T " OVERSEAS DELIVERY AVAILABLE Our most expensive option: A hole in the roof.
