Vote To Cut Off Funds

WASHINGTON (A')-A House Education subcommittee voted to
deny federal funds to segregated schools which do no come up with
a desegregation plan this June and do not have a plan in operation
by June 30, 1964.
The subcommittee also put school districts on notice that during
the next few months it will try to make major revisions in the im-
pacted areas program and cut out some children now included.
The anti-segregation amendment was attached to a bill to con-
tinue for one more year the impacted areas program. This grants

VIENTIANE (P)--Pro-Communist Pathet Lao forces shelled the

Despite the shelling from heights overlooking the Muong Phanh
strip, neutralist planes continued landing with supplies, a com-
inique reported.
The air strip, about eight miles west of the plain has been the
n source of supply for Gen. Kong Le's neutralists since they were

By The Associated Press
LANSING - House Democrats
yesterday passed a resolution call-
ing for a bipartisan committee to
investigate how Gov. George Rom-
ney and American Motors Co. may
benefit from the signing of a con-
troversial unemployment compen-
sation bill.
Although called into session only
as - a token move to permit the
Senate to confirm an appointment,
the Democrats mustered 44 of their
52 House members.
Republicans charged that it was
an attempt to "embarrass" the
Democrats demanding an in-
vestigation of the effects of the so-
called Ford Canton bill's provi-
sions that certain firms may have
their negative balances in the
state jobless pay fund wiped out.
The Democratic demand for an
investigation by a six-member
House committee also named
Chrysler Corp., and Mitchell-Bent-
ley Corp., firms with the highest
negative balance in their. rating
Although the bill was supposed
to be designed to satisfy both labor
and management, with a com-
mittee composed of representatives
from both factions making recom-
mendations to Gov. Romney, the
Democrats now feel the final form
of the bill is too favorable to

area by the Pathet Lao last month.
Sent Protest
From his headquarters at Khang
Khay, Prince Souphanouvong of
the Pathet Lao sent the neutralist
premier a strong protest against
the supply of United States arms
to the neutralist forces.
His message warned Souvanna
that the premier would be held
responsible for the "dangerous
consequences." Earlier this week,
the United States State Depart-
ment confirmed that some arms
were included among supplies de-
livered to the Laotian government
at the premier's request.
Use U.S. Arms
Informed sources said Kong Le
recently equipped most of his 5,,.
000-man force with United States
arms to be in a position to meet
any new Pathet Lao attack.
Souphanouvong also charged
that United States planes were
transporting a large "number of
troops of the third Laotian faction
--the rightists headed by Deputy
Premier Phoumi Nosavan - to
Muong Phanh to help the neu-
The Pathet Lao also called "fla-
grant interference in Laos in-
ternal affairs" a speech by United
States Ambassador Leonard Unger
'last week. Unger charged that
Pathet Lao was disrupting the
peace and declared the United
States would not abandon Laos to
the Communists.
Souvanna did not reply direct-
ly to the Pathet Lao charges. But
he informed Souphanouvong that
he will return for talks to Pathet
Lao headquarters.

New Force
Seek Nuclear Treaty
For NATO Nations
LONDON (P)-In a bid for
American and French backing, the
British government has substan-
tially modified its project for a
North Atlantic Alliance Nuclear
Force, qualified officials reported
last night.
The force, consisting of national
nuclear-strike units, will be stud-
ied by the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization's Council of Foreign
Ministers meeting in Ottawa next
Modifications of the Plan
Informants listed the following
modifications to the British plan:
1) A proposal to set up a new
nuclear command structure with-
in NATO has been dropped mainly
to please the French. President
Charles de Gaulle's men at NATO
headquarters have argued in-
formally that a command struc-
ture, made up of countries par-
ticipating in the nuclear force,
would create "an alliance within
the alliance."
Instead, the British now want a
deputy commander appointed un-
der Gen. Lyman Lemnitzer, su-
preme allied commander in Eur-
ope, with special responsibility for
nuclear tactics and strategy.
In Charge of Forces
2) A move to have a British
three-star general appointed as
deputy commander in charge of
the nuclear force also has been
dropped. The job is expected to
go to the nominee of a smaller
nation like Italy, Belgium or Hol-
land. He will be under orders to
build up an establishment from
all NATO members-not just from
those countries which contribute
to the inter-allied force.
3) A project to set up an inner
council of 10 countries which
would formulate NATO's nuclear
policies also has been abandoned.
The 10 were to have been the
United States, Britain, France,
West Germany, Belgium, Italy,
Holland, Greece; Turkey and Can-
ada. Washington objected that
only those countries which con-
tributed men and money to the
NATO nuclear force should share
in control of nuclear policy.
Plan Goldwater
By The Associated Press
LANSING-A "draft Goldwater"
demonstration has been planned
for a convention of the Conserva-
tive Federation of Michigan this
Saturday at nearby Holt.
Arthur Brandt, Jr., chairman of
the convention committee, dis-
closed plans for the demonstra-
tion to promote Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ari) for the 1964 Repub-
lican presidential nomination.
The federation was formed last
year for the avowed purpose of
supporting the conservatives.

Unanimous Approval
The subcommittee approved the
amendment unanimously and by
the same vote sent the bill to the
full Education and Labor Commit-
Under the program, the govern-
ment pays out about $350 million a
year to 4000 school districts reach-
ing into all 50 states.
Under the amendment, offered
by subcommittee chairman John
H. Dent (D-Pa), each segregated
school district would be required
to file a desegregation plan with
the United States Office of Edu-
cation by June 30 this year in or-
der to receive any funds for the
school year beginning next Sep-
tember. Each district would have
to have the plan in actual opera-
tion by June 30, 1964, to stay in
the program.
Heard Testimony
The subcommittee last year
heard testimony that 2000 of 2,-
837 school districts in 17 Southern
states had not taken a first step
toward ,complying -with the 1954
Supreme Court integration ruling,
requiring the filing of a plan.
Dent said the subcommittee is
dissatisfied with the program and
wants to come up, after further
study, with rules to make it "true
impact" assistance. Under the
original legislation enacted in 1950,
the subcommittee said, the pro-
gram has been so distorted that
many school districts not intended
to be included are :receiving sub-
stantial federal suport.
The committee took one such
step yesterday by voting to strike
from the program enough children
to save about $400,000 a year.

World Trade:
Talks Open
GENEVA (P)-Christian A. Her-
ter, President John F. Kennedy's
chief trade negotiator, called yes-
terday for unanimous approval by
the world's great -trading nations
of a project for doing away with
customs duties on tropical pro-
ducts as a way of helping poorer
He spoke to delegates represent-
ing 73 nations. They opened a
weeklong conference yesterday.
Herter endorsed a five-point pro-
gram asking:
Five-Point Program
1) Free access to markets for.
tropical products.
2) Agreement that unstable
prices and low earnings for their
products are the main economic
problems of tropical countries.
3) A standstill on any move to
build new barriers against tropical
products, until action is taken to
remove old ones.
4) Special attention to charges
levied on home markets that limit
sales of tropical products-like the
big taxes some European coun-
tries put on coffee.
Attack on Barriers
5) A decision that the attack
on barriers to trade in tropical
products be handled as part of the
next big round of international
tariff cutting.
"No task this meeting faces is
more important than that of find-;
ing ways to improve the export op-
portunities of less developed coun-
tries," Herter said.
Herter's appeal was made in the'
face of some skepticism from those
countries that anything useful to'
them can be done in this frame-
work. Antonio Balbino Carvalho
Filho, Brazil's minister of industry
and trade, told the delegates that

satisfied requests and frustrated

AC ;LU Drops
California Suit
On Speakers
By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-The American
Civil Liberties Union moved re-
cently to drop a suit to force the
University of California to allow
Communist speakers on its cam-
The unusual move was under-
stood to be based on the belief
that the university regents may
reconsider its policy on speakers.
The University of California,
one of the nation's largest educa-
tional institutions, promulgated
the anti-Communist speaker policy
in 1953.. The Civil Liberties Union
has pressed the suit against the
policy on behalf of students of the
university's Riverside campus who
were refused permission to invite
Communist spokesmen to debate
the merits of outlawing the Com-
munist party.
Applying to the Appellate Court
to withdraw the appeal, the
Union's lawyers noted that stu-
dents on the university's Los An-
geles and Berkley campuses had
petitioned the regents to rescind
the policy. They said they feared
the suit might block the regents
from such reconsideration.
The appeal had contended that
the ban was inconsistent with the
practice of inviting ,ultra-rightists
to speak.
