Enemy resistance in Cambodia appeared to have tapered off late Friday. U.S. forces reported only scattered actions as they and South Vietnamese troops continued to search | i"f v i n g through huge supply found-this week. caches in Cambodia. Other! sources insisted, however, KEORUK- . Co'ftftftoed from PaQe One "advocating disrespect for ew laws" by. coMdnctteg th« Stftke to the face of the to* jnftetton. ^ The strike, called by the teachers' association early Wednesday; is the first of its kind in Iowa history. It capped j four months of haggling over teacher salaries by the a'ssoci- ation and the_ Keokuk School Board. Mrs.. .-Peters, an elementary school reading specialist, said she had never been to jail be* fore, "but there are a lot of things going on here that haven't happened before." Some Classes . "Lead" the way," Gaylord, a junior high school counselor, told the Lee County deputy who i helped escort the teachers to the city jail. i Classes in the 3,800-pupil sys- ilem were held again Friday in the elementary schools, but were called off for high school > seniors, who had been taught Thursday by substitutes, administrators, and community volunteers. there was no class for seniors Friday because of a problem in finding teachers w.h o s e specialities were needed, and because of "a possible student walkout," high school principal A. D. Peters testified at the court hearing. Glen Frey, director of the seven Keokuk elementary schools, said 518 students were absent from grade school classes, an increase of almost 200 over the absentee rate Thursday. The attendance decline apparently was because the education - association urged parents to keep their children lout of the classrooms. The association said the teaching going on since the strike has been a "mockery." More Determined? Some picketing continued around schools Friday, although this, too, had been prohibited by Judge Leary. "defendants are unable to make that concession." "The judge then rejected the request to delay the hearing. The jail sentences were denounced aT^a crying shame" by Dale- Lestina of St. Paul, Minn., a field representative for County jail at Fort Madison recently was ordered closed by the state, on the grounds that its facilities are inadequate. Many-custodians in the Keokuk system also remained off ation. Power Structure Lestina, hi. Keokuk because of by a union the Strike, said: AFL-CIO. "The Way in which the power structure of this community is treating its teachers is deplor- 1 pay dispute with the board and i in sympathy for the teachers. ;T he custodians are represented affiliated .with .the able." He declined to identify the "power structure," except to say he was referring to the "people who call the shots — the influential citizens who are behindothe School Board." Lestina said the national association was "certainly considering the possibility" of helping finance legal action for the Keokuk teachers and their local association. The teachers demand that' the School Board accept a mediator's proposed salary schedule calling for $6>75 annual, base pay and a 5.5 per cent increase for next fall. The School Board has offered $6,800 in base pay but proposed smaller step-ups for experienced teachers than the mediator's plan. The teachers contend the board's offer favors beginning teachers over those with more experience. ~ $21,000 Apart Although the two sides are only about $21,000 apart for the coming school year, board members apparently fear that the scale the teachers want for experienced instructors would be too costly in the future. The four officers of the local association were escorted to jail at the conclusion of the hearing. They were sent to city jail because the Lee . d, Ralph, Visser are repeat winners.
