LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (P) - A private, all-white high school will
open Monday for about 500 senior class students, the Little Rock Pri-
vate School Corporation announced yesterday,
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
said immediately it would make a legal test of the segregated school.!
Negro attorney Wylie Branton of Pine Bluff, Ark., called the
formation of the school a subterfuge to evade previous court orders
for integration and said "We will deal with it in due time in the
proper manner."
Seek Court Action.,
The court action will be sought at the federal level, he said.
Dr. T. J. Raney, president of the private school corporation, made
the announcement of the school opening and said the group would
keep working for facilities for
lower classmen.

school students transferred to

ATLANTA (P) - Five men were
charged yesterday with the bomb-
ing of Atlanta's Jewish temple
under a law that could bring
death sentences.
The five, rounded up by police'
and a large force of FBI agents,
were indicted by a grand jury

dynamiting of the Temple. They
were charged with destroying a
house of worship.
Named in the indictment were

two are brothers. Richard Bowl-
ing has not been arrested.

had' been held on a vagran'cy
.harge during the investigation,
was freed at an afternoon hearing.
Attorneys for. the suspects at-
tempted to gain release of all of
the five in custody at the hearing.
The lawyers charged the quick
idictment smacked of an "under-
handed" method.
Judge Virlyn B. Moore of ,Fulton
Sureme2Court set a hearing for
October 22 at 10 a.m., to decide
whether the suspects should be
granted bail. The Fulton County
Prosecutor, Paul Webb, announced
he would oppope release of th'e men
on bond.,
James Venable, one of the de-
fense attorneys, told the Court
that Police Chief Herbert Jenkins
"has deliberately sworn a false-
hood" in saying the men were be-
ing held for bombing a building.

Closed Seven Weeks
Little Rock high schools havei
been closed seven weeks beyond
their normal . opening date be-
cause of the integration crisis.
Gov, Orval 'E Faubus closed
them after the school board had
delayed their opening to await a
federal court action.

regated schools has been adopted

He indicated that the adminis-

take no action as a body, and that
reversal of'SGC's decision, which
found Sigma Kappa in violation

To Talk
TAIPEI, Formosa (P) - Secre-
tary of State John Foster Dulles
will fly to Formosa Tuesday for
talks with President Chiang Kai-
The meeting is expected to clear
up questions tending to portray
the two allies at odds. The Na-
tionalists, who issued the invita-
tion, regard Sec. Dulles' trip as
notice to Red China that there is
no split in United States-Nation-
alist policy for defense in the For-
mosa area.
Announcements in Taipei and
Washington said Sec. Dulles will
come here in accordance with the
two nations' mutual defense treaty.
This calls for periodic meetings of
the foreign ministers.
The Nationalists have worried
about a possible change in United
States policy ever since Sec. Dulles
and President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower criticized the size of Na-
tionalist troop concentrations on
Quemoy and Matsu, at Red China's
Sec. Dulles' coming is regarded
in Taipei as for two purposes: To
weld a solid front making clear
to the Chinese Communists they
are unable to crack United States-
Nationalist solidarity, and to seek
Nationalist agreement to some in-
ducement that will get Red China
to replace its present tentative
cease-fire in the offshore islands

Plan Raises
In Defense
HOT SPRINGS, Va.()-Deputy
Secretary of Defense Donald A.
Quares disclosed yesterday an
other rise in defense spending is
planned for fiscal 1960.
The military budget boost will
certainly be less than 10 per cent,
he said, and perhaps within five
per cent.
A 10 per cent increase would
mean a rise of about four billion
dollars above this year's 40
billion dollar Pentagon spending
level. A five per cent hike would
be around two billion.
Quarles and Asst. Secretary W.
J. McNeil spoke to the Commerce
Department's Business Advisory
Council, made up of the heads of
about 100 of the country's biggest
The council's sessions are closed,
.and Quarles and McNeil declined
to divulge any dollar estimate
-when questioned later.
Quarles told reporters the Pen-
tagon faces continuing pressures
toward increased budgets over the
next several years because of infa-
tion, the rising cost of increasingly
complicated weapons systems, and
the press of Soviet competition.
But he said the department
hopes to avoid any drastic rise
which would seriously affect the
over-all federal budget.

pro-Western former president.
They held the balance of power

National Rescue
Calling his government one of
national rescue, Karami said the
government must remove misun-
derstanding among citizens.
"The citizen must feel that his
ruler is unbiased, that his judge
is impartial and that his govern-
ment official is above suspicion,"
Karami said.
"Our government renews its de-
termination to preserve Lebanon's
traditional policy and to defend
its independence so that Lebanon

UN Reporters
Oppose shift,
In Program
The United Nations Correspond-
ents Association yesterday ex-
pressed strong opposition to
changes in the U.N. information
program recommended by a com-
mittee of experts.
It acted after Secretary Gen-
eral Dag Hammarskjold had taken
issue with the findings of the six-
nation committee issued earlier
this week.
A major recommendation of the
expert committee called for a shift
of emphasis from the dissemina-
tion of information through mass
media to "the selective approach
of putlic relations."
The correspondents called the
recommendations dangerous.

In Vatican

VATICAN CITY (A)-All but a
handful of the Cardinals who will
elect a new Roman Catholic Pope
were on hand in Rome last night..
As they gathered, Communists
were 'attempting to cast popular
suspicion on the forthcoming con-
The Communists appear to have
been astonished at the vitality, of
the catholic faith, underscored by
tributes to Pope Pius XII
This show of vigor seems to
worry the world communist com-
mand. The line European Com-
munists will take-a cautious one
-has been laid down openly by the
Moscow Press.
Izvestia, the Soviet government
paper, charged today that Ameri-
cans, French, Germans and Ital-
ians would negotiate over the can-
didate to be chosen, and that the
American Cardinals were trying
to organize the outcome.
This propaganda is attempting
to put over the idea that the choice
of a new pontiff will be dictated
by world political considerations,
with the United States .xercising
powerful pressure.
Up to now, the Communist press
of Europe has been circumspect in
its treatment of the death of Pius
XII. In predominantly Catholic
countries, the Communist press
had given almost an objective pic-
ture of the events surrounding the
pontiff's death.
