The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called the three-day meeting of Eligibility examinations for th< job of city laborer were given 'to day by the Civil Service Commit sion in the council chamber e City Hall. Seventy men had Qualified t take the written tests. Because o the large number, they were d vided into two groups, one to tak examination in the forenoon, th other this afternoon.

Trouble Seen in Red China several hundred persons from around the country to: 1. Enable them to meet with their members of Congress and stress their desire for "meaningful civil rights legislation." 2. Plan "continuous grass root 5 activity" in the states to build popular sentiment for the legislation and convey this sentiment to • Congress. Among those listed to speak at the sessions were several Congress members and churchmen oi Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish faiths. The sessions are distinct from the big "march for jobs and freedom" which six civil rights organizations, including the NAACP, are planning for Aug. 28 In this demonstration, an estimated 100,000 to.230,000 Negroes and Whites are to gather neai the Washington Monument and march to the Lincoln Memorial, a half mile away, for exercises and speeches. Discussing this march Monday Dr. Walter Fauntroy, Washington coordinator of the demonstration indicated that if Congress shoulc decide to take a long Labor Day recess and thus be out of tow: Aug. 28, the demonstration woulc be postponed, But the director of information for the march, Sy Posner, said in New York: "Tlie march will be held rain or shine on the 28th whether Congress is in session or not."

TOKYO (AP)~The U.S. State department's publication of docu- nents telling of unrest and near- evolt in Red China's army in 960-61 confirms what the Chinese hemselves have hinted—there vas major trouble. The documents also substantiate iiitside assessments of what the shakeups and changes of that ime and earlier meant. Tlie beginning of the Red army disaffection dates from 1958, when party chairman Mao Tze-tung, loss of Red China, launched a speeded up industrial and agricultural program to bring peasants into avast network of rural communes. Mao took the drastic step against the advice of Soviet Pre- nler Khrushchev. Marshal Peng Teh-huai, de- !ense minister, recognized that Mao's dispute with Khrushchev could lead to withdrawal of Soviet help to the Chinese army. Peng opposed Mao'a plan and was re- x>rted to have communicated his views to Khrushchev. He was dismissed in Septe/nber 1959 and his name has not been nentioned by tlie Chinese since. Gen. Huang Ko-cheng, Peng's army chief of staff, was fired at he same time. His disgrace was completed in September 1962 when ic was fired from the secretariat of the Communist party Central Committee along with Gen. Tan Cheng, head of the army's chief political department. Khrushchev is said to have attacked the Chinese leaders sharp- y in I960 for dropping Peng. From that time on, the Chinese now have disclosed, Soviet aid to China stopped, Sees Reconciliation Of Hungary and U, S, BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Premier Janos Kadar hints tha 1 the United States and his Communist regime are on the verge of reconciling their differences stemming from the 1956 Hungarian re volt.

Committee Alters Oil Tax Bin WASHINGTON (AP) - Houa tax writers, reversing a previou, vote, have eliminated a provisioi in the new tax bill that woulc fiave netted the government ai additional estimated $20 million year from the oil industry. The action by the House Ways and Means Committee Monday eaves in the bill an estimated >40 million in new taxes on oilmen, compared with the $280 mil- ion recommended by President Kennedy to offset proposed tax- cuts in other areas. The committee, in item-by-item consideration of Kennedy's tax eduction and revision proposals, ad previously approved $60 mil- on in additional oil taxes. Monday's vote cut out a provi- ion to impose stiffer taxes on the ale of oil wells. The provision vhich would have netted the es- imated $20 million involved the ost of drilling and developing oil iroperty. Such costs can be writ- en off against current income. Vhen the property is sold, how- ver, the full profit is taxed only t the capital gain rate. The defeated provision would .ave recaptured some of the writ- en-off development expenses as rdinary income, taxable at a jgher rate than capital gains. Independent oil producers had ought the proposed change, con- ending it would discourage ex- iloration for new oil properties, 'hey said the market for U.S. irude oil is already restricted be- ause for foreign imports and harply limits their financial abil- ty to explore new ground. The committee proposed no hange in the present 27 1 /:! per ent oil depletion allowance, vhich was not at issue. Foreign Aid Budget Receives Approval WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Foreign Affairs Committee ave its final stamp of approval oday to a foreign aid authoriza- lon bill of just under $4.1 billion. The committee action by a 23-7 ote was a routine formality. It ad completed work on the bill ast week and today merely ap- iroved a "clean" copy of the narked-up measure. The committee decision sends he bill on its way to the House loor, perhaps to come up for a 'ote in the next several weeks. The authorization bill merely ets a ceiling for the money that :an be appropriated for the aid program for the fiscal year that >egan July 1. A separate appropriations bill nust provide the actual money Bandits Slay 43 in Columbia Massacre BOGOTA, Colombia (AP)—Bandits herded 45 men into an abandoned farmhouse Monday and suited them to death one by one.

N«w Qfflea, Reproi 60,3406 . 200 W, Third St.— Alton o Agency Ousts Peters By CHAKLfcS WHAI.RN SPRINGFIELD, 111. fc- Rep. W. J. Murphy, R-Anlioch, has picked a prize plum by being elected chairman of the Illinois Budgetary Commission. His selection, 9-4, at a closed- door commission meeting Monday was no surprise and it ended the 16-year reign of Republican Senator Everett R. Peters, St. Joseph, in the top budgetary post. Peters, who remains as a commission member, fired a parting shot in blaming his removal on Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago and "some 'kind of deal" between Murphy and. Democratic Rep. Paul Powell of Vienna, once a Peters' crony, Murphy, in a statement pre pared before the meeting, sal he wants to develop the 15-mem ber budgetary group into "more functioning body" by en larging its research staff. Goal He said his goal will be to sup ply more information on slat financial matters to the legisla ture and the governor. The com mission's function is to screen two-year budget requests of state agencies and submit recommen dations to the governor. Murphy, 47, played a compare tively small role in legislative affairs until the opening of the 1963 session when he was a sur prise choice of House Speake John Lewis, R-Marshall, as Re publican majority leader. Lewis also put Murphy in a po sition to become chairman by naming him a commission mem ber after the six-month legisla live session was over. Murphy told reporters tha 'nothing but harmony prevailed" at the budgetary meeting. Bui Peters' caustic remarks didn'1 echo this view. Peters, long a Senate power ind chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said Daley was in on the move to dump him. Wood River to Form Insurance Opposition He said the Democratic mayor lidn't like Peters' opposition to ills for increasing the city sales ax and other city levies and for is insistence that ceilings .be laced on checks of public aid ecipients. Peters also blasted Gov. Otto lerner for not ^coming to his upport. ' :.•••• -i He said Kerner told him he vas a good chairman but could do nothing to stop his ouster. "That absolutely amazes me," 'eters said. "The governor apparently has no power to run the state." Asked who he thought wai "calling the shots," Peters replied: "Daley." Peters said Lewis was involved in the power play to de pose him but added: "Lewis was helpless. I think he sold his soul to become speaker." Powell and Lewis had said the Senate had held the budgetarj chairmanship long :enough and it was time to return it to a House member. House Republican members o the commission joined -with Dem ocrats in unseating Peters, whose only backing came -.from GOP Senate members. Bible Reading Required in AlabamaSchools MONTEGOMERY, Ala. (AP)— Alabama public school children will be required -to take a course in the Bible under, a ruling of the State Board of Education. In practice, however, there wil be little change, if any, from current Bible-reading requirements. The board's order to put Bible reading in the required course o study came Monday as a result o a recent U.S. Supreme Court rul ing, The court barred reading of the scriptures and recital of the Lord's Prayer as part of requirec classroom exercises, but did no rule out reading the Bible as pan of the course of study.
