MIAMI BEACH-Republican governors failed again yesterday
in two attempts to get the National Governors Conference to go on rec-

The first bid came when Republican Gov. Mark O. Hatfield of

Scho Order
By The Associated Press
DURHAM-A federal judge yes-
terday ordered a sweeping speed-
up of desegregation in Durham
schools this year and "total and
complete" desegregation next year.
Chief District Judge Edwin M.
Stanley filed the order. He directed
the Durham school board admit
all Negro elementary and junior
high school children to white
schools who formally apply for
transfer before August 12.
The construction site in New
York City where more than 400
anti-bias demonstrators have been
arrested was picketed yesterday
by about 80 demonstrators.
Half of them were arrested.
Shaky Truce
A shaky truce prevailed in the
Cambridge, Md., racial situation
after the agreement reached Tues-
day night in Washington. City of-
ficials were reported working to
head off a petition aimed at get-
ting a referendum on an equal ac-
commodations issue.
The National Association for the
Advancement of ' Colored People
said in Little Rock, Ark., that it
has asked the Justice Department
to investigate the recent fatal
shooting of a Negro youth at Mar-
ion, Ark..
Andrew Lee Anderson, 17, was
shot by a group of citizens and
sheriff's deputies who chased him
after a white woman reported that
he tried to rape her 8-year-old
Marches Continue
In Charleston, S.C., anti-segre-
gation marches continued. Truce
talks between white and Negro
leaders appeared at' a standstill.
More than 60 merchants have said
they will desegregate stores, but
Negro leaders said they will dem-

and welfare committee which in-
cluded civil rights provisions.
The majority report presented
by Democratic Gov. Richard J.
Hughes of New Jersey endorsed
Cuban refugee resettlement, the
proposed national service corps,
youth employment and the mental
health and mental retardation acts
pending before Congress. It with-
held approval of the King-Ander-
son Medicare bill until further
study' and made no civil rights
provisions on how proposed federal
money should be allocated.
Hatfield, who substituted his re-
port for the majority's was thwart-
ed when Democratic Gov. Donald
S. Russell of South Carolina mov-
ed that the rules be suspended and
the governors vote to go on record
for neither'report. The rules were
suspended 29-12; his motion pass-
ed 25-16.
Printed Data
Russell asked that the "infor-
mation in the reports be printed
for anyone who wished it." He did
not feel that "any of us were elect-
ed to handle bills before Congress."
The minority report also did not
approve of the national service
corps, mental health bill and
youth employment act. It was
signed by Hatfield, Governors
George Romney, Archie Gubbrud
df-South Dakota and John Chafee
of Rhode Island.
The second attempt came when
GOP Gov. Nelson Rockefeller ask-
ed for a suspension of the rules
so that a motion could be adopted
endorsing the "New England Dec-
laration of Conscience."
Rights Statement
The declaration, circulated by
Democratic Gov. Endicott Peabody
of. Massachusetts is a civil rights
statement of' "conscience" signed
by 37 governors. Rockefeller, who
did not sign the statement, made
his motion after Peabody had ask-
ed him that it be put in the sec-
retary's official report.
Rockefeller's motion was de-
feated 27-12 with some Republi-
cans joining Democrats, including
Peabody, in rejecting it. Rockefel-
ler said that he did not blame Pea-
body "for having his conscience
bother him, since we have been
gagged at this conference."

Expect Reply
In 24 Hours
Premature Decision
Categorically Denied
WASHINGTON W)-The chair-
man of the House Commerce Com-
mittee asked the railroad indus-
try yesterday to delay for 30 days
its Monday-midnight deadline for
imposing m a n p o w e r - trimming
work rules that threaten to touch
off a nationwide strike.
Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark) asked
an answer within 24 hours. J. E.
Wolfe, chairman of the National
Railway Labor Conference, said
the carriers would reply today.
Almost simultaneously a Colum-
bia Broadcasting System report
that the railroads had already de-
cided to delay 30 days drew this
response from J. Handley Wright,
vice-president of the Association
of Railroads:
"Categorically denied."
At the Labor Department a
spokesman said the department
had no information on any rail-
road offer to delay the rule chang-
es. But a possible indication that
a delay 'isstill likely came from
Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore). He
said he had been in touch with
leaders of both sides and was hope-
ful a postponement would be an-
Meanwhile, railroads began post-
ing notices on bulletin boards in
many parts of the nation stating
the new work rules would go into
effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
Harris, in making his appeal,
said Congress can't act on Ken-
nedy's railroad labor plan in time
to avert a strike threatened by
rail unions when the work rules
changes go into effect.
Daniel P. Loomis, president of
the American Association of Rail-
roads, promptly complained that
any new postponement would drain
off more of "the lifeblood of an
anemic industry."
A spokesman for the five on-
train unions involved told news-
men he doubted there would be
any formal group statement by the
unions on the plan.
But H. E. Gilbert, head of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire-
men and Enginemen, told a news
conference in St. Louis yesterday
that the five unions are all op-

GOP Conflict
Freshman State Sen. Robert
Vanderlaan (R-Grand Rapids) has
moved to avert a threat of a party
split by five of his freshman col-
The five voiced their dissatis-
faction with party leadership last
week and began work on an ulti-
matum to Republican caucus
chairman Stanley Thayer of Ann
Vanderlaan, expressing himself
in sympathy with the senator's
demands, has proposed that they
be discussed before the party cau-
cus as a whole. He is against an
ultimatum. Two of the dissatisfied
senators have agreed to go along
with Vanderlaan.
The demands call for more par-
ty caucuses, closer communication
between the party leadership and
other senators and the creation of
an assistant caucus leader, to be
filled by a freshman senator.
"We will probably have an in-
formal caucus before the next ses-
sion of the Legislature where com-
plaints can be brought out and
weaker points corrected," Vander-
laan said.










Soviet Bloc
Will Discuss
East-West Relations
Also To Be Viewed
MOSCOW 0P)-The Soviet bloc's
high command opened Kremlin
parleys yesterday on meshing their
economies with the Moscow-dom-
inated Council for Mutual Eco-
nomic Assistance.
The meeting of Communist
party and government heads con-
vened early yesterday morning as
Moscow awaited the outcome of
the United States, British and
Russian nuclear test ban talks.
Official announcements h a v e
said the Communist summit meet-
ing would discuss questions of
COMECOM cooperation and other
economic problems.
Other Issues
But the prospects for a thaw
in the East-West cold war re-!
sulting from the possible agree-
ment on a limited nuclear test
ban and the schism between Rus-
sia and Red China also were ex-
pected to be discussed.
Major developments have taken
place in the Kremlin's relations
with the West and Red China
since the Communist chieftains
met in East Berlin three weeks
Western officials said the events
of the last month indicate Pre-
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev has
decided to press for an accommo-
dation in the West while he de-
votes most of his attention to the
steadily worsening power struggle
with the Chinese on the East.
Will Brief Allies
He is expected to brief his allies
from East Europe and Mongolia
on his next moves at this week's
At the same time, the COME-
COM leaders were expected to
continue efforts to resolve fric-
tions in their economic alliance.
One of the major problems is
Romania's resistance to t h e
COMECOM councils plans to put
a crimp in its development of
heavy industry and assign it to
grohing food and turning out
light industrialgoods.
Romanian President Gheorghe
Gheorghiu-Dej stayed away from
the East Berlin gathering in an
apparent display of his determina-
tion not to give up ambitious plans
for turning his backward country
into an industrial power.



THE LEADER AND HIS MEN-Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev is show
addressing Communist party chiefs in Moscow. This week he will be dealing wi
pean allies. Among the problems to be discussed are greater economic cooperatio
accommodation with the West in the form of a non-aggression pact.
Increase Disciplinary


Many students may not yet be
aware of it but the "once sacred
2.0 is no longer sacred," Wayne
Carruth, assistant dean for aca-
demic counselling in the literary
college, said yesterday.
In the year and one-half since
the change in the qualifications
for re-registration have been in
effect, student reaction in general
has been favorable, Carruth said.
The ruling on re-registration was
changed by the Administrative
Board of the literary college as "a
service to the student," he added.
Until last September the state-
ment in the literary school calen-
dar regarding permission to re-
register had said that the records
of all students whose over-all
grade point fell below 2.0 at the
end of a semester or summer ses-
sion would be reviewed by the Ad-
ministrative Board. Students were
then either placed on probation
or asked to withdraw from the

Views Bible
Historical interpretation of the
Bible provides a rationality which
contradicts many modern inter-
pretations, Prof. George Menden-
hall of the near eastern studies de-
partment explained at the New-
man Club's summer lecture series
last night.
Speaking on the sources of old
testament texts, Prof. Mendenhall
concentrated on the story of the
flood as the "most obvious ex-
ample" of the value of historical
approach to Biblical study. He
noted how the early Jews took
pagan accounts of the flood and
related them to their religious
Prof. Mendenhall said the story
of the flood had existed in pagan
writings long before the time of
Moses. The early Jews were faced
with the problem of whether or
not to disregard these accounts.
The Jews eventually accepted
them, but the content of Jewish
interpretation varied greatly from
earlier Babylonian versions.
Different Interpretations
While the Babylonians constru-
ed the flood story to mean that the
gods were returning the world to
the state it had existed in at the
time of creation, the Jews used
the flood story to support their
belief that God ruled the world
through a set of natural or physi-
cal laws.
Prof. Mendenhall noted that the
Babylonians made their equiva-
lent to Noah immortal and that
the Tower of Babel, which gave
the Babylonians access to the di-
vine world, had the same dimen-
sions as the ark. The Jews, on the
other hand, used the flood story
as a means of revelation to God's
If explained in the historical
context, the Bible gains a ration-
ality to its times, Prof. Menden-
hall said. It is just as necessary,
he claimed, to attempt to explain
the Bible in relation to the ancient
pagan religions as it is to view
