Thc report, published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association, said six brands of cigarettes, including two filter- tip types, were used in the one- year study. The research was undertaken, they said, to determine if the cancer risk had boon eliminated from cigarettes, or reduced by modifications in recent years. Tumors were induced by every brand'.of cigarette tested, they said, but the filtered cigarette smoko yielded only one-third the amount of tar in standard cigarette smoke. There were fewer tumors and n slower onset of tumors among the filtered cigarette group. Tar yields among standard cig a reduction in the size of both houses. Sillers, not a reapporlionment advocate, also called for a reduction if a new apportionment was emmincnt. Under the plan, which is expected to draw fire from reapportionment leaders, a county would get a second seat in the House at 19,500 population; a third at 40,500; a fourth at 65,000; a fifth at 95,500; a sixth at 130,000; a seventh at 171,000; and an eighth at 218,000. Thc population scale is sliding, with each population bracket covering a wider range, giving mid- bracket counties additional representation on a population basis.

Negro Killer Of Detective Dies in Chair CHICAGO (AP) - Tight-lipped and appearing calm, James Dukes, convicted killer of a Chicago detective, died in the electric chair in the Cook County Jail today. • "He was scared," said Warden Jack Johnson, "but he took it real good." Dukes, 37, whose attorneys made desperate last-minute attempts to stay the execution for the 1956 slaying, walked 40 feet from his isolation cell to the death chamber. A Catholic jail chaplain and eight guards walked alongside him. They said he did not speak as he walked to the chair. Dukes, a Negro, was twice convicted for the slaying on Jim 16, 1956, of detective John Blyth in a gun battle on the South Side. His first conviction was set aside by the Illinois Supremo Court but he was convicted in a second trial In 1958. He had received several stays of execution in lengthy court appeals. Blyth was slain as he attempted to arrest Dukes for shooting two men who had sought to aid a woman Dukes was beating. Jackson Raps Cut in State School Funds LAFAYETTE, La. (AP)-The Louisiana Vocational Education Association meeting, with more than 1,000 teachers and delegates attending, went into the second day today. State Education Supt.

He said a "reduction in education expenditures reduces the quantity and quality of educational services which in turn reduces the production and consumption potential of the state." Gov. Jimmie Davis' administration cut the education budget this year over Jackson's strong protests. Jackson told the association that "low school budgets seldom tally up to real savings to a community or a taxpayer."
