Western Nuclear Suspension Plan

GENEVA (J)-Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's disapproval of

a Western proposal for a phased suspension of nuclear weapons tests
cast grave doubt yesterday on the future of the three-power conference.
Information available in Geneva indicated, however, Khrushchev
stopped short of killing off the negotiations which have been limping
along since Oct. 31, 1958.
In a message to Washington the Soviet leader expressed dissatis-
faction with the Western plan to get a first step agreement to stop
tests on the surface, in the atmosphere to a height of 50 kilometers
(30 miles), and under water.

EAST LANSING -- Michigan
State won the batters' game, but
Michigan won the pitchers' game
in a doubleheader at Old College
Field here yesterday afternoon.
Wolverine batters had a field
day in the opener, collecting 18
hits, yet lost their second game to
the Spartans in two days for lack
of effective pitching. State com-
bed three Michigan hurlers for
15 hits and a wild 17-12 victory.
1.Bob Marcereau salvaged one
game in the weekend series of
three when he pitched the Wol-
verines to a 2-1 triumph in the
nine-inning nightcap. The 5'"
sophomore rghthander, in his
first route-going performance, al-
lowed five scattered hits.
Opponent Pitches Well
Marcereau had to be good be-
cause his mound opponent, Craig
Van Sciever, was equally effective.
The two hurlers battled to a 1-1
tie through the regulation seven
innings, and the eighth.
Two errors by Spartan center-
fielder John Russell in the ninth
proved Van Sciever's undoing.
With one out, Russell dropped
Dave Brown's deep fly to left-
center. Wilber Franklin's ground
ball to Van Sciever. resulted in a
rundown play on Brown, trapped
off second.
Russell Errs Again
Brown was eventually tagged
out, but Franklin meanwhile made,
it to second. On John Halstead's
solid single to center, Franklin
raced around third, then hesi-
tated, fearing a throw to the plate
by Russell. But Russell let the ball;
dribble through him, and Franklin
scored easily.-
Marcereau then protected his
leadl, surviving a two-out double

of the ninth.,

To Begin
WILMINGTON, Del. (:') - The
State Board of Education has been
ordered to integrate the races in
Delaware's public schools one
grade a year starting with the
first grade in the fall.
The order issued late Friday by
United States District Judge Caleb
R. Layton III is approximately
what the board sought.
Several Favor Move
jSeveral Negroes as individuals
and the Delaware chapter of the
National Associataion for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People had
worked for immediate integration.
Judge Layton's ruling on this
request said. "Any thought of total
and immediate integration of the
Delaware school system is out of
the question."
He spoke in the ruling of dan-
gers of "emotional strain . .. ten-
sions and the impact of integra-
tion on a predominantly Southern
society" in Delaware.
Stems from Hearings
The order stems from a series
of hearings he conducted earlier
this year. -
The state board previously had
accepted another court order that
it integrate in compliance with a
Supreme Court ruling that segre-
gation in public schools is uncon-
stitutional. The hearings were held
to determine the best method of

NAACP brought suit against seven

From Office
Angry with newsmen, Wash-
tenaw County Sheriff George A.
Petersen has put a partial black-
out on news from his department.
"We'll give what news we want,"
he declared yesterday.
Petersen was said to be upset
over an Ann Arbor News article
which said he had suspended two
deputies. He claimed the story
should not have appeared,-and
denied that he had suspended
them. He did say, however, that
he had taken them off duty for
a time.
. He noted, moreover, that the
deputies had returned to duty.
They had been taken off their
jobs during an investigation of
an incident in which they are said
to have- stood by while another
officer fought with acitizen. en
Petersen denied the story was
the specific cause of his clamping
down on the release of news from
his office. yG





COMPLETED-The 475 million dollar St. Lawrence Seaway was completed in a short period of five

needed to crack ice.
Flew Flags
She led at a stately pace a 35-
mile-long queue of 55 ocean-going
ships flying the flags of many na-

Car horns honked, ships blew
their whistles and hundreds of on-
lookers waved as the D'Iberville

the first of seven that will lift
the convoy a total of 224 feet to
the level of Lake Ontario.
"It's a great thing to have a
deep-water canal going right to
the center of the continent" Ca-
nadian Transport Minister George
H. Hees said, as he waved back at
the -spectators.
Parade Moved
Planes and helicopters, many
carrying photographers, flew up
and down the seaway as the ma-
-rine parade moved along.
At Ogdensburg, N.Y., at the
Western end of the Massena Locks,
another flotilla of 33 Canadian
