The number could increase to more than two million by next week. Detroit School Supt. Norman Drachlei put off indefinitely co- day's scheduled school opening for 300,000 youngsters. In New York a deadlock continued toward a Monday deadline. Michigan was the hardest hit of the states, with almost a half- million youngsters in some 17 districts on extended vacations "until further notice." Teachers picketed in some Michigan cities.

In a telegram to the United Federation of Teachers the board called for a membership vote on the proposal. The union agreed to the vote but predicted the rank and file would reject it as the negotiating team had earlier. The package would boost most teachers' salaries by $1,050 over two years to a starting 96,600 next S e p t e m b e r . The teachers had called for a c*l* l from 17,500 to $15,000. SPAPERf
