night to have the consent of the

Representatives in their countries.
Details of the plan for peace
in the Mideast were not known but
informed sources said it would call
for establishment of what has
been termed a UN presence in each
of the countries.
One source said the UAR seg-

Hammarskjold plans to report

Six citizens of Little Rock formed
a corporation yesterday to operate
private schools-an apparent fol-
lowup to Governor Orval E. Fau-
bus' plans to make private institu-
tions'ofrthe city's four high schools.
Three more schools in Virginia
faced apparent closing on orders
of federal judges favoring inte-
gration. One school already has
been closed because of a state
law against integration.
Still another Virginia school
area-this one at Norfolk-faced
the integration question yesterday.
United States District Court Judge
Walter E. Hoffman called a special
session to consider a request by
the Norfolk School Board to knock
out a state injunction against local
assignment of pupils.
The "Little Rock Private School
Corp." became a business when a
circuit judge signed corporation
papers. Gov. Faubus, who ordered
the schools closed to prevent
forced integration, had no com-
ment on the action.
It could not be learned whether
the group will move immediately
to open private classrooms in Little
Rock's high schools. However, ob-
servers expect the corporation to
wait until after a special referen-
dum Sept. 27 before taking any

ities, finances and operations of all
the state-controlled institutions of
higher education.
2) Take a firm hold on the.
purse strings of state higher edu-
cation. "The State fiscal authori-'

ating funds to the individual insti-
tutions. If the full amount of the
grand total requested cannot be
provided, the Legislature shonuld
divide the available funds accord-

tion of the coordinating board,"
Russell said in his report.. ,

deep-penetration shells yesterday
in what appeared to be a new
attempt to smash Nationalist gun
Previous heavy shellings were
aimed at blasting supply vessels
coming ashore at Quemoy or at'
Nationalist troops.
By Nationalist count, the Reds
dropped in 8,333 shells on the Na-
tionalist offshore islands up to 6
p.m. The last 52-minute bombard-
ment of more than 1,200 shells was
aimed at Quemoy. Other targets
were Little Quemoy and the Tan

mation service said, meanwhile,
that Tuesday's heavy bombard-

The bombardment did not halt

to Quemoy. Two LSTs (Landing

Pushes Query
Lodge decided to push the query
after State Controller James W.
Miller testified he could see noth-

tion by Judge Dethmers for the
three cars.
Dethmers wrote Miller last Nov.
29 that he was authorized by court
resolution to request cars for Jus-
tices Eugene F. Black, John D.
Voelker and Talbot Smith to use
in performance of official duties.
Asks for Details
The senator asked for details
concerning the specific use of the
three cars.
Miller said he didn't have any,
and considered it sufficient to rely
on certifications provided monthly'
by the three justices and Dethmers

After some heated exchanges,
Miller received Sen. Lodge's prom-
