The plan will allow junior high and high school pupils to attend the school of their 'choice as long as there is room for them in the school. Superintendent Dwight M. Davis had recommended ear- Her that the policy go into effect next fall, but advised the board Tuesday that it might be "more desirable administratively" in implc- ! meriting it, to wait a year. The board approved the open- enrollment concept, 4-3, and de- ; laying it 'until 1971, by a 5-2 ! vote. i Voting for open-enrollment I were board members Dr. j George ' Caudill, Mrs. Kate Goldman, Dr— John McGaw and the Rev. L. Robert Keck, board president. Voting against if were board members Ora Niffenegger, Merle' F. Schlampp and Mrs. Jack Spevak. .

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) -jwin the Democratic nomination ff£ r _ a |!?^ The Federal Reserve Board cut its margin requirement for buying stock Tuesday to 65 per cent of the purchase price. It had been 80 per cent. The board also cut the margin requirement for convertible bonds —those that can'be converted into stock — to 50 per cent from 60 per cent. . Both changes will be effective today. The''board cited a sharp redu- cation in the use of credit for I stock purchases in announcing (the change, the first revision since June, 1968. The reduction followed persistent reports last week that the New York Stock Exchange had asked the board to make the cut. But at least one problem was the "possibility of criticism, because the change would make scarce credit more available for stock purchases. :•• • Since -the- last -change, the board said, margin credit extended by brokers .dropped from $6.7 billion to $4.5 billion in March, while the number of margin accounts dropped from 940,000 to 820,000. The announcement came, at the end of another day of declines on the stock markets, The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials dropped 4.82 to 709.74, the lowest'reading since 708.39 on Aug. 9, 1963. (Details on Market Page) Expanded Sex Education In DM. Schools Urged Sex education courses in Des Moines public schools should be continued, improved and offered to more pupils, a majority of a citizens committee recommended to the Des Moines School Board Tuesday. The majority report of the Citizens Committee, on Human Growth and Family Life Education told the board that sex education courses, as a part of family life and human growth, curriculum, should be offered in grades 1, 3, 6, 9 and either 11 or 12. Ody^Ktb-gfaders presently study sex education on a class-wide basis in Des Moines schools. The 23-member citizens committee was appointed by the board last January to review the school district's existing sex education program and makei that neither Wallace nor Brewer could win outright with a majority in the seven-man race. The runoff will be June 2. Returns from 2,375 to 4,353 boxes in the, state gave Wallace .244,949 votes and Brewer 240,942. A Dothan millionaire, Charles Woods, was running third with 80,849 votes, Coleman Brown had 1,608, Asa Carter 9,140, former Gov. James E. Folsom 3,142 and Ralph Price 2,551. ^Victory jn the Democratic primary is tantamount to election because the Republicans have said they will not have a candidate this fall. To win the nomination without a runoff, one candidate had to get more vptes than the com-! bined total of his opponents. ' ". ' RHODES, JGLENN LEAD j COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP)-! Gov, James A. Rhodes built aj lead over Rep. jr., Tuesday in Buildup Feared One of the Kansas researchers, 0. K. Galle", head of the analytical section of the survey, 'reported in a telephone interview: "We are not trying to be alarmist but in our opinion, if enough of. these products are used and the waste water dumped into high-use rivers, the- amount of arsenic could easily .build up to the point vyhere it would be dangerous in drinking" water." The Science article does not identify any of the laundry products by name. The study was conducted on "three enzyme presoaks, three heavy- duty enzyme detergents, one heavy-duty detergent and one detergent aid." The parks are Black Hawk Lake, in Sac County near the town of Lake View; Dolliver Memorial, in Webster County 10 miles south of Fort Dodge; Pine Lake, in Hardin County near Eldora, and Clear Lake, in Cerro Gordo County near the town of Clear Lake. Camping has become such a popular pastime that restrictions were imposed in the eastern 'states several years ago because overuse was destroying the parks. The National Parks Service is considering similar limitations on some of its largest parks for the same reason. ^Only Way "We didn't think it would come to this so soon in Iowa," John Stokes, chief of lands and waters, told the commission at its monthly meeting here.

Johnson County Sheriff Maynard Schneider, accompanied by Iowa City police and about 100 sheriffs deputies from Scott, Linn, Washington, Iowa, Cedar and Polk counties, told the demonstrators to clear the-streets.

White House spokesman Ronald Ziegler said later .that President Nixon had specifically limited the advance to 19 miles. The chairman of the House' Foreign Affairs Committee, Representative Thomas E.

It was also Morgan who related that Mr. Nixon plans to have U.S. forces out of Cambodia by June 30. Other Points According to other lawmakers who were briefed in a series of White House meetings, Mr. Nixon also said that: The Cambodia raids were undertaken primarily to protect the Vietnamization process and American troops in South Vietnam, but "a subsidiary purpose" was to relieve growing Communist mil- i t a r y - pressure on Cambodia.
