School Plan For Orleans Is Accepted NEW ORLEANS 'AP) - The Orleans Parish School Board said Saturday that Negro plaintiffs and U.S. Dist. Judge Frank B. Ellis have agreed to the hoard's transi- tionary school desegregation plan for the 19f)2-G3 year. Under the plan, the board would admit 127 Negroes to the first three grades of 21 desegregated public schools here Sept. 6. Last year, 12 Negroes attended six for continuing with one additional grade each year thereafter. The appeals court's schedule called for elimination of bi-racial districts in two grades in September, 1963, in five grades in September, 1%4, and in one additional grade in each year after that.

FAY AP Military Affairs Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The strategy-making Joint Chiefs of Staff include the possible impact of military space operations in their planning for both the near and distant future. This was disclosed Saturday in answers given by a Defense'De- partment spokesman to a series of questions about U.S. strategic objectives as related to space warfare. The questions, had their genesis in a series of recent developments. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara was described as believing that no military application of space vehicles had been demonstrated in the twin-satellite orbiting feat of the Soviet Union. Subsequently, McNamara modified that report view by saying: The Russians have demonstrated a launching booster capacity "substantially in excess" of that of the United States; the new Titan III booster project will provide the United States with launching capability two to three times greater than the rocket engines now used by the Soviet Union; and by the time the Defense De-l partment puts together its recom-; mendations for the fiscal 1964, budget this winter it will have learned enough about requirements to add new projects to its military space programs. The comments left unanswered the question of whether military space operations and defensive problems are just a gleam in the eye or already are being incorporated into future plans. The joint chiefs maintain hi "program for planning" three continuously revised strategic plans: — A long-range strategic estimate covering a four-year period which begins- eight years after adoption of the plan and thus carries coverages to a point 12 years ahead.
