In a lengthy but orderly session, the council approved the sales tax ordinance by a unanimous vote. The September election will be the third attempt to levy the city tax. Two earlier elections resulted in defeat for the tax proposal. A resolution asking permission of the Stale Bond and Tax Board to hold the election also gained unanimous approval. A resolution BRAZIL AIR CRASH FBI Joins Search For Young Girls By LARRY OSIUS ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP)-City police and FBI agents switched from massive search to concentrated investigation today as they sought two 7-year-old girls assumed to be "either captive or dead." Hundreds of policemen, firemen, area residents, Marines and soldiers criss-crossed the Brookville residential area of this suburb of Washington, D.C., Monday, looking for Rita Ohlgren and Maria Theresa Morley. They found neither children nor clues. The FBI joined the case late Monday, 24 hours after the girls were reported missing. They were last seen playing in front of their adjoining apartment houses Sunday evening. Maj. Russell A. Ilawes, Alexandria chief of police, said Monday night. "We must assume for the purpose of starting an investigation that the girls were probably induced to get into an automobile by a sex maniac and that they are either captive or dead — we might as well face that unless,a very unusual set of circumstances Is involved." The search began Sunday night after William Morley, father of one of the girls, notified police they were missing. Searchers canvassed all homes in the area and combed a nearby woods and creek section. A hundred Marines from Henderson Barracks and 325 soldiers from Ft. Myer, Va., joined the searchers. Police dogs were sent through storm sewers. A nearby gravel pit was checked five times. A small bloodstained piece of cardboard was found on a parkway, but Lt. L. C. Saunders of the Alexandria police said it apparently had no connection w i t h Ihe case. Detective Sgt. Marshall Reid said known sex deviates in northern Virginia, Washington and southern Maryland will be questioned, "now that we are operating on the assumption they were abducted." The number might reach the ! thousands, he said, adding "no case is more important than two missing girls." ABE'S BEEF TALK II is o known tact — when you believe In o Ihlng—you can really sell It.

By CARL HARTMAN BERLIN (AP) - The Russians tried twice to protest stoning their military buses by West Berliners and were brushed off by Maj. Gen. Albert Watson II, the U.S. commandant in Berlin, a spokesman for the U.S. mission said today. •••••• He said the Soviet deputy commandant, Col. C. V. Tarasov, called on (he mission headquarters Sunday and Monday night to protest the stonings by West Berliners angered by the fatal wounding of an East German refugee by East Berlin border guards. "On his second call, the Soviet officer was told that Gen. Watson was not available to meet him," Ihe spokesman said. Soviet buses, taking replacements to guard the Soviet war memorial in West Berlin, have been attacked with rocks by West Berlin youths four times since Aug. 13, the day of the first anniversary of the Red wall dividing Berlin. Watson today received West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt. They were understood to have discussed Hie demonstrations on the wall by West Berliners which have grown more violent every day. West Berlin informants hinted that Watson is angry about the frequent stoning of the Soviet bus and apparent police inability to protect it against youthful rioters. These sources said Watson is demanding that the West Berlin administration lake all necessary precautionary measures to prevent the rock hurling. The stonings have occurred in the U.S. sector of Berlin for which Watson, as top representative of the occupying power, has ultimate jurisdiction. r Q r r- Your picture i KL L made in j" st 10 seconds by MISS POLAROID (Faye Cranberry — Former Lake Charles Beauty Queen, now a New York Mode!)

J. (Tubby) Lyons voting! against the resolution. i Lyons said, "I cannot endorse the need for a sales tax under the conditions of this ordinance." Lyons had earlier attempted to add two amendments to the ordi-! nance, botJi of which were defeat-! ed by votes of 5-2. Lyons and La- i Fleur voted for the amendments. One of the Lyons' amendments called for earmarking tax funds to provide for raises recommended by the ways and means com-, mittee which had recommended ' the sales tax proposal. The second amendment provid- 1 ed that a vote on the tax would come up every five years to determine if the tax should be continued, i LaFleur said the purpose of the i tax was to "use more people on ! the deadhead bill and I strongly' object to that." LaFleur has been ! an outspoken critic of the propos- j al. : A number of interested citizens spoke for and against the tax ordinance at Monday's four-hour meeting. Former city commissioner Sam Tarleton asked the council if the tax was for an indefinite time to which the council said yes. Tarleton also wanted to know 1 if the council planned to borrow on anticipated tax receipts. The council said the tax would be on a pay-as-you-go basis. When Tarleton asked if any of the funds were dedicated, Mayor Alfred! Roberts said a revised budget provided for use of some money but none had been dedicated for' the election. Council President C. M. (Jack) Jackson said ifInVtaT passed every city employe with the exception of elected officials would be given salary raises. Mayor Roberts said that if the sales tax is approved in the September 25 election he will include in the budget, to be presented to the council on October 1, provisions for the addition of 18 policemen, 34 firemen and six permanent employes in the public works department plus six seasonal workers. When questioned about dismissal of some city employes if the tax failed, Mayor Roberts said some other means of taxation would be found to prevent dismissal if at all possible. When the question of the cost of the September election came up, Lyons said he had checked with the Calcasieu Parish clerk of court's office and an estimate of five to six thousand dollars was quoted. City Attorney Warren Hood said some of the election commissioners were going to work without pay and there would be no charge for the use of voting machines. Hood was not certain about the cost of the election. Monday's action on the tax ordinance came after two council delays. The proposal was on the agenda for August 15 and August 17 meetings of the council, but a quorum was not present at those meetings. 11 More Missing When DCS Liner Fails on Takeoff By TOM MA9TERSON RIO r>E JANEIRO (AP)—A Brazilian jetliner with 102 persons aboard skidded off the runway on takeoff Monday night, plowed through a thick concrete seawall and dived in flames into Guanabara Bay.

Officials said at least 32 persons were killed and 21 hospitalized with shock, burns and other injuries in Brazil's fourth major air disaster in 10 months. The big DCS stayed afloat for 15 minutes after hitting the water and then sank to the muddy bottom in 15 feet of water. "Some bodies may still be in the plane," a fire department official said.

FOUR CONVENIENT MARTINIZING LOCATIONS Pioneer Building Soulhgate Shopping Center Greinwlch Shopping Cllv Wesloolnt Shopping Center By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tropical air from the Gulf fanned far northward into the eastern half of the nation Monday, producing hot and humid weather and setting off violent storms in many areas. Temperatures skyrocketed Lo the upper 90s and 100-plus northward as far as Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, the Ohio Valley and Pennsylvania. Record readings for the date were set in many cities. The Southland got little or no relief from the long spell of muggy weather. Showers, however, brought temporary relief to some areas, with heaviest amounts in Mississippi and Arkansas. Fairly seasonable weather was reported in most of the Far West—excluding the Southwest desert region, where temperatures were above 100.

Before issuing its long-range plan, the board directed 127 Negro children admitted into 21 formerly all-while elementary schools this fall. This total includes 12 Negro pupils—the only students of their race now attending formerly all-white schools. Admission of the 127 children was passed in an emergency resolution to keep schools functioning until action is taken on the board's plan by the federal courts. In a ruling earlier this month, the 5lh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered segregated school districts abolished for the entire first grade this. year. The board directed its attorney, Samuel Rosenberg, to ask the appeals court this week to rehear its case and stay its Aug. 6 order. The long-range school plan would: Totally .integrate two grades in September, 1963, cutting out biracial school districts. Further desegregation, would be on a grade- a-year basis, starting with three grades in September, 1964. The appeals court plan would also erase bi-racial districts in five grades in September 1964. Then, it would start a grade-a- year pace. ground on for nine cily blocks be fore it came to a halt. The auto was lodged partly under it, compressed nearly flat.
