PROTESTS-A pacifist boards the nuclear-powered submarine, Ethan Allen, after swimming out to
the newly launched ship. He was quickly removed from the vessel. The Ethan Allen, the first of four
new missile-carrying submarines, is equipped with a new type of Polaris missile which has an in-
creased range of 1,725 miles.
Nuclear Sub Launehed Despite Pacifists

BATON'ROUGE ()-Gov. Jim-
mie Davis said last night New Or-
leans public school teachers will
be paid immediately.
In an announcement from the
executive mansion here, Davis said
checks will be prepared beginning
today and will be delivered by or
before the end of the week.
Prior to Davis's statement, Rep.
John Garrett, chairman of the
joint legislative committee on seg-
regation, said at Baton Rouge:
"The legislature wants to see that
New Orleans teachers are paid. We
know the vast majority are not in
sympathy with integration."
Garrett spoke after James Red-
mond, public school superinten-
dent, said no money was in sight
for 'the teachers' November checks.
Sen. Wendell Harris, a member
of the State Sovereignty Commis-
sion, qualified Garrett's announce-
ment by saying only teachers who
teach in segregated schools will
be paid.
Harris also said those who taught
in the two integrated schools are
subject to dismissal.
Redmond had urged Gov. Jim-
mie H. Davis to "rise above the
noisy emotions of some state
legislators" and make the money
available.
Many teachers said the an-
nouncement of a payless Novem-
ber came as no surprise. The, con-
sensus seemed they would con-
tinue to work and eventually re-
ceive their salaries. Most teachers,
attempting to avoid the segrega-
tion hassle, refused to comment.
Veteran teachers recalled the
depression of the 1930s when they
had been paid in negotiable script
or bonds.
There were unconfirmed reports
a group of local businessmen
would advance $2 million for the
teachers.
"The nation is watching the
state of Louisiana," Dr. Redmond
said. "It has been made clear by
state actions that Orleans parish
(county) school board officials
cannot be considered responsible
for this plight."
Cubans Continue
Property Seizures
HAVANA ()-The Cuban gov-
ernment has seized the American-
owned Havana Dock Corp., worth
an estimated $9.5 million, a Unit-
ed States embassy spokesman
said yesterday.
Thus far the Castro regime has
intervened in or nationalized more
than $1.5 billion worth of Ameri-
can-owned property.

GROTON, Conn. (P - The
Navy's most powerful Polaris-mis-
sile submarine, which will have
increased firing range, was launch-
ed yesterday and had its first
skirmish-with a group of pacif-
ists.

Two of the pacifists swam to the
nuclear-powered Ethan Allen and
boarded it minutes after the gaily,
decorated craft slid down the ways
into the Thames River. They were
removed quickly.
The Ethan Allen, named for the

WORLD NEWS ROUNDUP:
Soviets Blast Western Plan
To Increase NATO Atom Arms

American Revolutionary War hero,
is the first of a new line of fleet
ballistic missile subs that will have
a firing range of 1,500 miles or
more. It displaces 6,900 tons.
The $110 million craft, and the
rest of her four sister ships, will
carry the new A-2 Polaris missile,
which is expected to have a range
up to 1,725 miles. The older FBM
subs have the 1,380-mile A-1 Po-
laris.
Gen. Lyman L. Lemnitzer, chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
told a crowd of about 5,000 at
the launching ceremony that the
United States must maintain and
increase its military strength in
all its forms.
"The Communist leaders have
respect for only one thing-mill-
tary power," he said. "I believe
that the only effective restrainf
now or in the future on the lead-
ers of the Kremlin and Peking is
fear of the consequences in the
exercise of military power."
The Ethan Allen's power will
come from her sixteen A-2 mis-
siles, each of which will carry an
atomic payload.

from the USA."
