(£>) — Search planes and surface vessels turned up more debris today in an intensive hunt for survivors of two Air Force KC135 jet tanker -planes that may have gone down about 335 miles southeast of Bermuda with U crewmen aboard. "One pilot described the areas as a "floating junkyard'," said, John Vandergrlft, spokesman for the Air Rescue Service Center at Orlando Air Force, Base; Fla. Vandergilft said the debris, Including parts of KC135 aircraft a pilot's helmet, life rafts, Five Negroes In Charleston City Schools CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Five';Negro students were enrolled: without incident today at three .previously all-white Charleston public schools in South Carolina's first school integration belowi'the college level. One policeman was on hand as Negroes enrolled for the first time,-at Rivers and Charleston high ischpols and at the James Simons elementary school. Ex- cept'idir-a handful of newsmen at each {school,--there were no crowds and only .students looked on as South Carolina lowered racial barriers in its ; secondary and elementary schools. Public school integration came a day after the Roman Catholic Church opened its eight white elementary schools here to Negroes. Calm prevailed as 15 of 202 eligible Negroes chose to attend " integrated classes. Last January, Negro Harvey B. Gantt entered Clemson College to mark the first desegregation of any tax-supported school in South Carolina. and survival suits, were scattered over a ten-mile area. Coast Guard headquarters in New York, in charge of the overall rescue operation, said that the cutter Owasco had picked up a number of items normally carried by planes about 335 miles southwest of Bermuda. .The guard said the items, which included navigation charts, pieces of plywood and various rubber products, all had Air Force markings. Debris indicated the planes might have plunged into the Atlantic about 750 miles east-northeast of Miami. It was located in an oil slick-and airplane panels were found in the area. The Air Force refused to comment on the possibility of a collision. The key items were three life- rafts, identified as the kind the four-engine KC135s would have carried. Each plane would have had only two aboard, the Air Rescue Service said. The rafts were found within 60 miles of each other. A helmet stenciled "Gardner" was so found in the same area. Capt. Gerald Gardner of Lincoln, Neb., was aboard one of the planes. t . : The stratO;tankers were returning to Homestead Air Force Base, south/of Miaflii, where they were stationed. ;i: .with the 19th Bomb Wing fytidnesday wlien -they osl. radio contact about noon.

Under the call for bids to be received Sept. 9 contractors may offer proposals on any one or on all four divisions. This arrange tnent has attracted wider Inter terest of contractors thuri was the case under original bidding last June when contractors had to bid on the whole project. Public Works Director Paul A. Lenz said today that thus far 10 prime contractors, qualified to do any or all parts of the proj ect, have taken out plans. Six of these are firms which didn't figure on the project last June. Three subcontractors who would furnish materials or equipment also have shown direct interest in the Sept. 9 letting. The prime contractors known to be figuring the job include Hellrung Construction Co. and H. A. Grabbe Co. of Alton, and the Joseph P. Keeley firm of E. St. Louis. Other firms figuring the work are from St, Louis, Youngstown, 0., Skokie, Spring. field, and Detroit. Besides breaking down t h t southside Interceptor system in to more .bidding divisions, Lenz said, some revisions in the plans have been made. Final cost estimate of the project engineers has not been announced in advance of the bidding, but Lenz indicated that it will exceeed $1 million. The southside interceptor sys tern includes the main interceptor line along the riverfront from the foot of Williams Street to the pumping station at the sewage disposal plant, also Shields Valley channel improvements, Shields valley interceptor sewer, and the Cherry - Monument interceptor. All told, the southside project is to pick up all sanitary sewage from the westerly side of the city, along with the flow from the Upper Alton sanitary sewer, and conduct it to the treatment plant. i Bids' received last June were considered too high and were rejected. The lowest proposal was 57 percent over the cost esimate. Alton Files "•'• ; •< ' ' ' „; • '•'•'•? Tax Levy With County Clerk Alton's amended tax levy ordinance, enacted by the city council Wednesday night, was filed today at the county clerk's office in Edwardsville by City Clerk Paul Price.

The levy is $10,463 less than that of $1,008,747 made by the council a year ago for the 1962 tax year.

Np pyrshaw ntstmry, fa rtgiiter, OVM Pact Limit Possibility! Sen. Mundt WASHINGTON (AP) - Sett. E. Mundt. R-S.D., (nies- iibhed today whether the top- idavy committee vote to ptil the ifnlted htielcar test bar) treaty before the Senate necessarily means the pact will be ratified Without reservations. He had some support among other members of the Senate foreign Relations Committee which voted 16 to 1 Thursday to recommend ratification without the attachment of special provisos, but most Democras and some Republicans disagreed. Mundt was one of the majority In the committee vote, but In a stn lenient today he pointed out that he and a number of other comniMeemen reserved the right to vote "for any needed reservations or against ratification of the treaty Itself." IMniM Study Mundt, along with some of the others, said he will study any additional data on the pact from the Senate Armed Services Committee or the Senatc-H o u s e Atomic Energy Committee before taking a final position. Debate starts Sept, 0. Meanwhile retired Adm. Arthur W. Radford, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sharply criticized the treaty in a letter to the foreign relations committee. Radford's statement called the pact inprccise and vague 'and said that "unless we insist upon clarification now — we will find ourselves in great difficulties later on," •Sen, J, W, Fulbright,.'chairman of the foreign relations committee, „ predicted there will be no. more ( than 20 votes against'the pact and/he'.expects And hope* "thorp.; will be. less." : ' Opposition Sen. George D. Aitan, R-Vt, who originally .-forecast, at least a. 4 to'1, majority^ said today he would not' be surprised .if oppo^ iients mustered no more' thah 1$ to 15 votes. Ratification requires a two-thirds' majority, or 67 if all the 100 senators vote. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., cast the only committee vote against recommending ratification without any reservation. He called Thursday's vote "premature," and said his action does not necessarily mean h'e will oppose the treaty on the floor after further study. .
