ON WAY TO SCHOOL--Three of the 13 Negro children who entered Memphis' previously all-white
schools yesterday morning meet with reporters on their way to school. The entrance of these children
ended without incident the century long segregation in Memphis.
WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy spent two hours
yesterday getting up-to-date re-
ports on the efforts of this coun-
try and its allies to bolster the
military might of the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization.
The briefing was, begun by De-
fense Secretary Robert S. McNa-
mara and Gen. Lyman L. Lem-
nitzer, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff. It was capped by
a first-hand report from Europe
by Gen. Lauris Norstad, supreme
commander of NATO.,
Secretary of State Dean Rusk,
who gave Kennedy a run-down
Monday on the diplomatic situa-
tion in the Berlin crisis, sat in on
the military discussions.
There was no word from the
White House afterward on what
was said. The participants left by
a side door, with Rusk leaving a
bit earlier than the others.
One purpose of the session was
to enable Kennedy to catch up on
the details of the latest develop
ments in view of his meeting later
this week with Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei A. Gromyko.
There still was no datemsetfor
the Kennedy-Gromyko meeting,
nor for the Russian's further talks
with Rusk. But White House
sources indicated that the Presi-
dent likely will receive the Krem-
lin's foreign policy expert on Fri-
Should Gromyko come to Wash-
ington only during the second half
of the week this would allow only

Hodges ,,Asks Less Aid
For Depressed Areas
WASHINGTON (M)-Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hodges,
said yesterday many of the counties designatedsby his department as
depressed areas are really not in trouble and don't need federal aid.
"I wish a lot of them would pull out," Hodges told a news confer-
ence. He said many could do a proper economic development job using
Hodges was surprisingly outspoken in discussing the $394-million
federal program which his department administers. However, not all
his remarks were critical. He said
Use News Blackout
To Keep City Calm
MEMPHIS () A century of seg-
regation ended in Memphis yes-
terday with 13 Negro first graders
admitted to white schools guarded
by a massive police turnout.
Police Commissioner , Claude
Armour reported there were no
incidents. Fifty patrolmen, billy
clubs in hand, patrolled the area
around each of the four schools
Desegregation was voluntary, al-
though due to indirect pressure
from a federal suit now pending
on appeal. The school board pre-
pared for it in near secrecy.
For many residents, integration
came as a jolt. They got their
first word of it this morning when
a news blackout was lifted.
Attendance at the schools was
reported nearly normal despite a
trickle of bitterly outspoken white
mothers who hustled their young-
sters out of classes. About 25
students were removed by parents,

move plumb out of the city," said

"Yeah," said Jerry McGregor.
"I'd rather be dumb than go to
school with them."
William D. Galbreath, school
board president, said no transfers
to other schools would be granted
to pupils dissatisfied with deseg-
Inside the schools, spokesmen
reported all was serene. Teachers
had prepared their classes for the
new pupils. The wide-eyed new-
comers moved through the school
day without restriction.
The 8 girls and 5 boys were
carefully chosen from 42 who ap-
pealed to the city Board of Educa-
tion 'after their applications for
admittance to white schools were
rejected last month.
WASHINGTON () - President
John F. Kennedy last night sign-
ed into law the bill extending for
two years the program of federal
aid for schools crowded because
of federal activity in their areas.
The measure also continues for
two years the National Defense
Education Act providing loans to
college students and other aids to
teaching of science, mathematics
and foreign languages.
This measure was all that Con-
gress granted the President of
the ambitious federal aid to edu-
cation program he proposed this

that Marshal Ivan S. Konev, com-

Germany, has warned the Ameri-

A spokesman said Konev, trans-
erred to East Germany recently
from command of the Warsaw
Pact armies, had written Gen.
Bruce C. Clarke, commander of
the United States Army in Eu-
rope, to avoid any action that
could cause friction.
Clarke's headquarters in Heid-

DAMASCUS (P) -=The revolt
that split Syria from the United
Arab Republic was originally plan-
ned to halt weakening of the
Syrian army by the Egyptians
rather than as a political move-
ment, the army's new commander
in chief said yesterday.
Gen. Abdel Karim Zahredin
told newsmen President- Gamal
Abdul Nasser's intelligence offi-
cers had infiltrated "like an octo-
pus to weaken the Syrian army,
suffocate freedom of citizens and
to fill prisons."
He accused the Egyptians of
stealing military arms and equip-
ment worth 10 million Syrian
pounds ($28 million at the official
exchange rate) and shipping them
off to Cairo.
"The army's only aim ( in re-
volting) was to redress wrongs and
it was pledged not to interfere
with the political life of Syria,"
The top six officers and other
members of the revolutionary
command have reportedly gone
back to their army jobs and are
not mixing in government. The
new commander in chief himself
was not involved in the coup.
,The new 12-man cabinet, most
of whose members have almost no
government experience, is consid-
ered decidedly pro-Western by ob-

But a declaration to that effect
would raise cries of "imperialism"
that might endanger public sup-

diate decision should be expected.

Interior Minister Adnan Ku-

Nasser still has a larger per-
sonal following among Syrians
and the coup would not have suc-
ceeded, informed sources said, ex-
cept for two things:
1) A wave of anti-Egyptian feel-
ing caused by a personal tax im-
posed in August.
2) Nasser's lieutenants had be-

This seeming conflict stemmed
from a distinction which Hodges
drew between two types of coun-
ties designated as depressed.
In urging withdrawal from the
program he was speaking primar-
ily about rural counties which are
eligible for aid because the aver-
age income of their farm families
is less than $1,170 a year. There
are 487 counties in this category.
Aid also is being offered to 376
other' countries. Most of these are
urban areas designated because of
substantial and persistent unem-
A number of rural counties have
protested against their inclusion
in the program, and Hodges said
they have a point.
"I think psychologically it is
bad to be called a depressed
area," he said, but added:
"On the one hand the county
or the people resent being called
a depressed area and on the other
hand quietly reach out and get
whatever they can.,,+
Hodges said that of the 863
counties which are considered de-
pressed, "You would find a fairly
good lot of 'them that are really
not in trouble.
"If I were chairman of the
county commissioners I'd get my
group together... and I'd say,
'Let's stay out of this thing'."
