Ralph Kinzinger of New Athens was elected vice-president Fire Code In Proposed Ordinances A fire prevention code, recently urged by engineers of the National Board of Fire Underwriters as Alton's most immediate need for fire safety, is already before the City Council. Mayor P. W. Day said today that he finds that a local fire prevention code is included in the fire department chapter of Part 2 of the proposed revision of the city ordinance code. Adoption of Part 2 of the revised general ordinances of the city was undertaken last winter by the former council, but bogged down when consideration of the traffic code chapter was reached. 'Resubniits Part 2 City Clerk Paul Price some weeks ago resubmitted the unact- ed - on Part 2 ordinance No. 3107, to the new aldermanic council, and it was referred for study and a report by the ordinance committee, headed by Alderman Roy Geltz. Part 2 contains five unacted on chapters, those dealing with cigarettes, civil defense, fire department, gambling, and traffic. Day pointed out that the proposed chapter dealing with the city fire department includes as Article III a local fire prevention code as recommended by the Na- tionaJ Board of Fire Underwriters, but with a few revisions and several additional regulations. The mayor said he strongly favored adoption of the fire prevention code and have action on it expedited. The chapter on the fire department, could, if the council so will seek to in the council WeatherForecast Alton and vicinity: Increasing cloudiness and warmer tonight.

Javits, R-N.Y., told the Senate today that President Kennedy "may well have to send U.S. marshals or troops" to Alabama to reopen schools where integration is scheduled to take place. Javits said this tvould be "a trying decision" for the President, but Kennedy "should have the support of the people of this country and of the Congress in the ed, on soybean contracts with j steps he finds ' it necessary to NFO which are ready for the I take." and re-elected were: Walter Metier of Columbia, secretary, and Ray Schmidt of Lebanon, treasurer. Ivan Ulmet of Godfrey was named to a three-year term as trustee and two district directors were elected: Irwin Doerr of East Carondolet, representing St. Clair County, and William Kelley of Troy, representing Madison County. Dwight Kiggins of Lebanon, a national negotiator for NFO in the meat commodities department, reported on a recent meeting in Chicago of NFO representatives with the Chicago Stock Yards and Swift and Co. He said that both were in accord with the farmers purposes and had agreed to cooperate in any way they could. Meetings with officials of the NFO are planned by both the stockyards and the packing company in the near future, he said. Kiggins told members that the stockyards and Swift had agreed that chain stores, handling about 80 per cent of the meat pur- have placed a heavy burden on the meat processing industry, results of which are felt in livestock prices to the farmer.

Iberg said that while thousands of bushels were held by members last year, it is hoped that millions will be the Castro Guerrillas Strike in Honduras goal of NFO this year. Several contracts with exporters to all parts of the world have been made, he said, and the demand for soybeans is growing every day. Indiana Legislature Rejects Interest Hike INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A pro- chose, be enacted independently j posa i to raise the maximum inter- of the other ordinances in Part 2 of the general revised ordinances. Such action was taken by the former council with a chapter on city finances and purchasing which was originally included in the Part 2 measure. Designated Inspectors Under the fire prevention code article, the fire chief is made the equivalent of "chief of the bureau of fire prevention," and enforcement of the code is given to the city fire department under super- .vision of the chief. Authority is given the chief to detail such members of his department as may be needed as "inspectors". The chapter sets regulations on storage of explosives, liquified petroleum gasses, and flammable liquids and lists areas where storage is permissable. It sets regulations relating to service stations, the building of open fires, and on smoking. The section on smoking makes it a violation for any person who est rate on bank certificates of deposit died Thursday, and Indi- TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP)—Government forces clashed with Castro-backed guerrillas in the northeastern section of Honduras Thursday and both sides suffered casualties, unofficial sources reported today.

Willard VVirtz today to make preparations for calling a meeting of the full group. Under me course charted by a bill enacted last week to avert a nationwide railroad strike on Aug. 29. the arbitration panel is to work out a solution dealing with the crackling issues of 32,000 freight and yard firemen's jobs and makeup of train crews. Kennedy appointed Seward and two university faculty members, all with broad experience in arbitration of labor disputes, to round out the board. Congress provided for appoint ment of two panel members eacl by management and the union. 1 and for selection by the Presiden of the three remaining members if the labor-management mem bers could not come to agreemen on them. It took the two unior members and two managemen members only two days to an nounce they had agreed to dis agree. To serve with Seward as public members, Kennedy named James J. Healy, a professor of industria relations at Harvard's Graduaate School of Business, and Benjamii Aaron, director of the Institute of Industrial Relations at the University of California at Los Angeles. Railroad representatives on the arbitration panel are J. E. Wolfe, chairman of the National Railway Labor Conference, and Guy W. Knight, a Pennsylvania Railroad vice president. The unions are represented by H. E. Gilbert, president of the AFL-CIO Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and ana remained the only state with a 3 per cent ceiling on interest paid by banks.

U.S. Plans Reform Push On Viet Nam WASHINGTON (AP)—The United States intends to press firmly for policy reforms by the government of South Viet Nam even though it has evidently failed in its drive to oust strongman Ngo Dinh Nhu. Nhu and his brother, President Ngo Dinli Diem, in separate interviews in Saigon Thursday played public confidence in security of The past spot check across the nation indicated that religious devotions have continued in many schools. In many cases, most of whom apparently continued their own or tlipir school's practice, whether prayer. Bible reading, silent meditation, inspirational reading or no devotons. Discontinued Sonic teachers. particularly those in states that had prescribed devotions, apparently dropped the practice. This appeared to be the case in parts of Pennsylvania. Its law requiring Bible reading was struck down by the high court. Public schools in Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina and Arkansas were reported continuing traditional prayer or Bible reading in the absence o.' any orders from state school officials. In New England, silent meditation replaced devotions in most classrooms. But in North Brookfield (Mass.) High School, the first day began with recitation ofj the 100th Psalm and the Lord's j Prayer at an assembly. Any pupil or teacher had permission to leave the hall. None^ did. School officials said they would continue the devotion until challenged, when they would review their position. - In Hawthorne, N.J., the Lord's Prayer and five verses of the Old Testament were recited. The school's lawyer said pupils nol wishing to participate could remain silent or leave the room Teachers who objected could ask that another conduct the de- •otions. To Cont'nue To Ask End Of Aid to Viet Nam WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Frank Church said today he may offer a resolution to shut off all American aid to South Viet Nam unless drastic reforms are undertaken by the Ngo Dlnh Diem gov- ernnienl. Church, an Idaho Democrat, said demands for stern U.S. measures — including some for a withdrawal of American military advisers — were voiced at what he described as a stormy brief- POPULAR WITH THE KIDS ANNISTON, Ala. —Alabama Gov. George Wallace is surrounded by school kids at Anniston following a ribbon cutting dedicating a new city street. During his speech, Wallace said the situa :- tion in Birmingham involving school integration is "very tragic." He promised to "continue my efforts for nonviolence and law and order." (AP Wire- photo) their positions, two weeks Nhu dis- the had been the target of considerable criticism from Washington, the chief immediate complaint being that he was responsible for attacks on Buddhist temples and widespread arrests of Buddhist monks and nuns and demonstrating students who supported the Buddhist opposition to the Diem government. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press in Saigon Thursday, President Diem said his government considers the Buddhist crisis to be a closed incident now and he predicted better relations between Viet Nam and the United States. In a separate meeting with a number of foreign correspondents in the Vietnamese capital, Nhu, who is head of the Vietnamese secret police, said he did not intend to retire. Only three days earlier President Kennedy had said in a public statement that the government of South Viet Nam had "gotten out of touch with the people" and lacked the popular support necessary for it to win il.s war against Communist guerrillas. For years, the guerrillas have terrorized the countryside in a struggle violation was issued Thursday hy Granite City justice of the peace Harry E.

One case of open defiance was in Alabama, where Gov. George C. Wallace has said: "We don't care what the Supreme Court says." Daily Bible readings, without comment, will continue as required by state law, Wallace said. The court's ruling had little effect in several areas where prayer and Bible reading had been forbidden by state law—as in Illinois —or simply not been the custom— as in Arizona. Helicopters To Evacuate Tower Men CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) — A squadron of five Navy helicopters was ordered today to evacuate 31 men from Texas Towers II and III being dismantled off Cape Cod. The towers were reported being buffeted by strong winds and stormy seas. The Coast Guard at Boston said it asked Navy help upon receipt of a request from Lipsett, Inc., to remove the men. Lipsett is dismantling the two towers, once part of the Air Defense Early Warning system. Texas Tower II is 110 miles southeast of Cape Cod and Tower III 60 miles southeast of Chatham. Meanwhile three Coast Guard surface vessels were en route to the towers. The Coast Guard said the Navy expected to complete the job in four hours from the time the choppers leave Quonset. A helicopter, sent Thursday night to remove the workmen, failed to reach the tower. It lost its bearings in the stormy weather, couldn't find the tower and just made it back to Chatham Airport on outer Cape Cod with only enough fuel for 15 minutes flying timu. Meanwhile, the tower, buffeted by 40-mile-an-hour winds, seemed to sway precariously.
