The carpenters became the sec ond union this week to come ti terms with the Southern Illinoi; Builders Assn. in a strike by threi construction unions on $150,000, 000 in projects in Madison anc other Southwestern Illinois coun ties. The iron workers met with the contractors in Belleville Thurs day but no agreement was reach ed. It was reported the tw groups are close to terms. Earlier this week the cemen masons Approved the proposa and ended their strike. W. 0. Hays, secretary-treasur er of the District Council of Mad ison County Carpenters, said 3' members of the council acceptec the proposal. The 35th member could not attend due to illness. The terms cover 1,300 carpenters in Madison and Bond, Greene Jesey, Macoupin and Calhoun counties and calls for a 10 cent an hour wage hike the first year; 25 cents an hour either part in wages and fringe benefits or all in wages the second year and 25 cents an hour the third year. Wage has been $4.35 an hour. The new pact' must be approved by the carpenter locals which is expected to be completed by September, but the carpenters will work now on the jobs. • ; The iron workers and cement finishers left the jobs at midnight July 31 when the contract expired. The carpenters started picketing Aug. 14. The iron workers are expected to retain pickets on certain jobs until a settlement is reached, but many jobs in the area have resumed work. Viet Nam (Continued from Page 1) meeting Diem, a Roman Catholic, seemed significant. Lodge was reported to have asked some American officials later to take suitable food to the monks, who are vegetarians. His predecessor, Frederick E. Nolting Jr., was reticent about having any contacts with Buddhist monks. The capital was alive with rumors of general strikes, Buddhist suicides and street fights, but conditions appeared quiet with the U.S.-supplied Vietnamese army on watch under martial law. Opposition Opposition to the anti-Buddhist action mounted in Diem's official family. Foreign Minster Vu Van Mau was reliably reported to have resigned in protest, shaved his head in the fashion of a Buddhist monk, and asked Diem's permission to make a religious pilgrimage to India. He was the third Vietnamese diplomat to resign in protest against the crackdown. An American official said he believed the crackdown, which started with a series of bloody raids on temple pagodas early Wednesday, was instigated by Vietnamese generals. "I don't believe the generals actually are in control," he said. "The country definitely is still ruled by President Diem. "But there is a growing weight of evidence that jt was on the generals' insistence the present crackdown and martial law were initiated." There was no indication how long martial law would continue. A curfew continued at night throughout the country. Military censorship also continued. 1 Saw Troops A traveler arriving from Dalat, 140 miles northeast of Saigon, reported he had seen troops fire on demonstrators, There was no in dlcatlon of the number of casualties. Student strikes were reported in various parts of the country, in eluding Saigon, AH pagodas remained sealed of: by troops and police, * Most ol the monks arrested in the Saigon pagodas were being held In 8 military compound on the waterfront, it was learned Estimates of their number run to J,QQp or more, f Miners (Continued from Page One) have failed, the latest one Thurs day. If all goes well, the 12-inch drill was expected to breni< through around midalternoon Drilling slowed to avoid any pos sibility of a new cave-in. After the 12-inch hole is completed, the next step will be to enlarge it to 17 inches". This prob ably will take another 30 hours A second drilling rig, much smaller than the 10-story-high one boring the escape hole, is drilling a four-inch-hole toward the area where Louis Bova, 48, is believec trapped. Bova was separated from the others by about 25 feet of debris after a cave-in 10 days ago — about 9 a.m. Aug. 13. A six-inch lifeline hole reached Throne and Fellin last Sunday, but Bova has had no food since the cave-in except what he might have had with him. Throne and Fellin sleep fitfully at random times. Two mechanical breakdowns delayed the escape hole drilling tor a total of ZVz hours before dawn today. Experts on the drilling rigs expect difficulties as a matter of •outine in going through- hard •ock. They have a complete duplicate set of parts on hand at all times. Optimism prevailed for Throne and Fellin. Bova's fate was uncertain. There have been no reports about him since Tuesday light, when Throne and Fellin aid they heard brief shouts and apping. A Navy survival expert ;t the scene said Bova's survival ihances appeared slim. On the third front, specialists vith radioactive material rushed n from all over the nation, stood eady to make further probes to etermine how close a previous 2-inch hole came to Fellin and 'hrone. Initial efforts with a Geiger :ounter Thursday failed to dis- ilose the distance. Lt. Richard Anderson, of the ^aval Medical Research Institute n Bethesda, Md., a physician vell-versel in survival tech- liques, gave advice to Fellin and "hrone early today. Disappointed Anderson said the fact that 3ova has been trapped without ood or water for 10 days doesn't mean he's not alive. "But his chances are pretty ilim," he added.

Federation of Labor Endorses United Fund The Alton-Wood River Area Federation of Labov, AFL-CIO, endorsed the 1963 United Fund campaign in * meeting at the Machinists Center, East Alton Thursday night S. John Crawley, executive director of the Alton-Wood River Area United Fund explained the UF story to the legatwi and the need for full support. H. Beecher Charmbury, state iecretary of mines, said the arger drill was penetrating 35 eet an hour. "We can go at a much faster •ate now that we know the geo- ogical structure," he said. He said he was "very optimis- ic" the third 12-inch hole would be a success. "We were very disappointed vith the hole we missed but we ire glad that the men down there are keeping their spirits up. The 'ailure (Thursday morning) was probably more of a disappointment to us than to them." Anderson told Fellin and Throne o keep warm and instructed Throne to put some ointment on a cut on his hand. "Take care of the hand, put a bandage on it," he told Throne. He also told Fellin to put on 'some nice fresh socks," At one point Fellin reported, 'I've got a pain in my chest." Elwood Tito, who is operating .he communications to the men, asked Fellin: "Do you have a cold?" Fellin replied: "I don't know. 1 put on a heating pad, though." Charmbury said he was "not ,00 optimistic" about the tests with the radioactive probe, but further tests were scheduled to augment the rescue operation, in which all stops are being pullec out. In other business the group voted to give $300 to the erection of the proposed medical center in Hartford. Charleston Ordered to Admit Negroes By AL LANIEB CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Charleston has been ordered to admit 11 Negroes to its all-white schools on Sept. 3. School officials reluctantly bowed to the ruling Thursday by U.S. Dist. Judge J. Robert Martin Jr. Two white high schools and two white grammar schools in this port city, smouldering from summer-long racial demonstrations, will be integrated. Judge Martin's ordered covered 13 students involved in the original integration suit, but one has graduated from high school and another has moved from the district. Judge Martin cleared the way for integration of all city schools. He said no qualified Negro can be denied admission to a white school after September 1964. The order affects School District No. 20, which has 3,108 white pupils and 9,539 Negroes. "Every child in School District No. 20 has the right to attend a school freely. selected without regard to race or color," said Judge Martin. District trustees decided to go along with the order and admit the 11 Negroes. But they instructed attorneys to appeal the ruling. Laurence O'H. Stoney, board chairman, said it remains to be Laurence Stoney, board chairman, sail it remains to be seen •vhether the school system can be operated in 1964. He urged all res- dents to respect the board's decision "and to maintain and observe proper discipline." All secondary schools in South Carolina are segregated. But Harvey Gantt, 20, a Charleston Negro, was enrolled without incident at state-supported Clemson College last January under federal court order. Two Negroes are scheduled to enter the University of South Carolina next month. Judge Martin's ruling came just 16 days after a two-day hearing on a desegregation suit filed in 1962 by parents of the 13 Negro children. FARMERS SPECIAL GASOLINE AND OIL PRODUCTS ACME Oil, CO.

(AP) —Israel and Syria square off in he U.N. Security Council today, each accusing the other of ag- ;ression. The special council session hac >een set for Monday but was ad vanced at the insistence of Israel. Ambassador Michael Comay. He claimed Syrian guns shelled two sraeli settlements near the Syrian Border Wednesday night. It was the first time in 10 year; that Israel had originated a com plaint in the council instead o. following up Arab charges will counter charges. ' In preliminary talks with coun cil members, Comay said the 11 nation group's action would shov whether Israel could get satisfac tion from the council, where th< Soviet Union has exercised it veto occasionally on behalf of th Arabs. The Israeli Parliament said Wednesday night that Israel woul exercise its right of self defense unless the council halted the al leged Syrian aggression. Both Israel's and Syria's cut- rent complaints allege militarj aggression inside the demili tarized zone north of the Sea o Galilee. The zone is forbidden ground to all military forces undei the 1949 armistice agreement be tween Israel and Syria, last of the Arab nations to stop fighting in the Palestine war.

Fair Housing Bill Nearing Approval CHICAGO (AP) - A proposed fair housing ordinance has moved nearer city council approval. House GOP Cuts Foreign Aid Funds WASHINGTON (AP) - House Republicans handed Iho Kennedy ndmlnlslratlott n stunning defcnl today by slashing more than $1 billion from thd foreign aid authorization bill. Tt was the last chance for the Republicans to slice the bill, they had been turned back right down the line In a long Thursday night session. But today they prevailed by a 222488 vote. Many Southern Democrats joined forces with the Republican budget cutters. Only a few Republicans Voted against the cut In the bill, which traditionally has commanded bipartisan support. The administration, taken by surprise, must look to the Senate to restore some of the cut. The bill had stood at $4.1 billion. The GOP-backed cut was $1,025,000,000. The largest slice was $600 million off the Development Loan Fund. Also cut wore $150 million from (he Alliance for Progress, $50 million from the President's contingency fund, and $225 million from the military assistance section. A group of Republicans bent on slashing the money total in the controversial bill was beaten at every turn Thursday night. A final roll call vote was postponed until today under a technicality invoked by a Republican. The Senate has been considering a foreign aid bill of Its own in committee. This was interrupted by (lie hearings on the Itmiled nuclear test-ban treaty, wd the Senate committee is not expected to get back to foreign aid for at least several weeks. While administration leaders held (lie line on (he HI-billion authorization, their fight for this year is fur from over. Still to come is the appropriation bill that furnishes the actual money for the fiscal year which started July 1. That is in the hands of Rep. Otto Passman, D-La., a vigorous foe of the foreign aid program. Because of his efforts to cut the appropriation, the money bill has had little relation to the authorization bill for many years. It has been estimated that this year the appropriation may be as much as a billion dollars less than the authorization.
