House Defeats Proposal
For Mem ershi e
WASHINGTON (')--A bil, to increase membership of the House
from 435 to 438 floundered yesterday in a sea of complicated and con-
flicting parliamentary pressures.
The measure would have restored single seats to Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts and Missouri. It was submerged by a House voice vote
that sent it back to committee. Its supporters conceded later it is
drowned, permanently.
When the showdown came, the measure was abandoned even by
its chief pilot, Speaker John W. McCormack (D-Mass). He had steered
it skillfully from near-oblivion to what seemed early yesterday like vir-
tually certain passage.
In the end, it appeared that the rock which finally wrecked the

bill was the possibility that

structive mobs roamed the streets
and demonstrated in front of the

protesting the unheralded depar-

Former President Joaquin Bala-
guer and Gen. Pedro Rodriguez
Echavarria, former armed forces
chief, were put on separate planes
Wednesday night and sent to San
Juan without prior notice.
The mobs .protested they should

He was given a safe conduct pass
out of the 'country.
Rodriguez Echavarria, whose
abortive coup upset Balaguer, had
been under detention since Jan.
19. He was deported.
A. government source said the
ruling state council got the two
out of the country "because their
presence here represented a threat
to the tranquility of the nation."
Another source said the council
feared the two men might make
another attempt to gain power.

Senator Hits
As Obscene
LANSING (A) - Obscene books
"are poisoning the minds and mor-
als" of Michigan children, Sen.
Lynn O. Francis (R-Midland),
chairman of the Senate Education
Committee, declared yesterday.
Francis rose on the Senate floor
to list four books he considered
undesirable. One has been banned
at the Forest Hills High School,
near; Grand Rapids.
The science-fiction novel, "Brave
New World," by Aldous Huxley,
was used as a text for required
reading. The. school district ban-
ned the book two weeks ago after
parents protested it was unfit
reading for high school students.
Other Books
Other books Francis listed as
unfit to read were "Tropic of Can-
cer," by Henry Miller; "Catcher
in the Rye," by J. D. Salinger, and
"Lady Chatterleys' Lover," by D.
H. Lawrence.
"Consider me an alarmist if you
will, but you ought to take a look
at what is going on. When I fin-
ish reading them, I feel thorough-
ly ashamed of myself," Francis
Francis made his remarks dur-
ing debate over an amendment to
an obscene literature bill, proposed
by Sen. Charles S. Blondy (D-De-
Include Records
Blondy's amendment would in-
clude phonograph records and
tape recordings among material
that can be legally seized by polite.
The Michigan State Library says
it carries on its shelves all but
"Tropic of Cancer."
Plan Prog ramgy
For Forces
officials told investigating sena-
tors yesterday that a new "in-
ternal troop information" program
aimed at international Commu-
nism will begin next month.
Carlisle P. Runge, assistant sec-
retary of defense for manpower,
said the program for the nearly
three million men and officers
now in the armed forces, will em-
phasize "the why-we fight rather
than the how-we-fight."
Runge testified before the spe-

ALGIERS (A') - Rocket-firing
French bombers went into action
yesterday along the Tunisian-Al-
gerian frontier, intervening in a
roaring artillery duel between Al-
gerian rebels and French troops.
French authorities in the east
Algerian seaport of Bone said
scores of warplanes refueled in
Bone throughout the day.
The planes-American-built B-
26 light bombers and French Mys-
tere jets-gave air support to
French troops at the frontier,
where thousands of cannon and
mortar shells have been fired since
French and Rebel negotiators met
in Evian to seek peace in Algeria.
Army headquarters confirmed
the aerial action and said last
night "normal operational activi-
ty continues along the frontier."
The French said the artillery
duel was set off by a desire of the
rebel army based in Tunisia,
The rebels were reported to have
opened up with field guns and



tinued to batter the east coast in
the aftermath of the worst winter
storm ever to strike the seaboard.

study group recommended yester-

ately during the winter months,
with a six-weeks interval between
