WASHINGTON () - The John
F. Kennedy administration said
yesterday that despite reports of
compromise it is standing by its
proposal pending in the House t6
increase the $1 an hour minimum
wage to $1.25 and boost coverage
by 4.3 million workers.
Rep. William H. Ayres (R-Ohio)
said earlier that Kennedy had-ac-
cepted. a key section of a more
moderate minimum wage bill to
avoid a crushing defeat in the
House.
As the House started to take p
the legislation, Secretary of La-
bor Arthur J. Goldberg issued the
following statement:
"Speaking for the administra-
tion, I want to make it perfectly
clear that the administration has
not accepted the Kitchin-Ayres
minimum wage bill or any part of
it.
"The administration is standing
by the bill reported by the House
Education and Labor Committee
which substantially embodies the
administration's minimum wage
proposals made to the Congress."
Sponsors of the proposed sub-
stitute bill are Reps. Ayres and
A. Paul Kitchin (D-NC).
Pupils Boycott
Against Ouster
Of Principal
SAVANNAH MP)-Negro pupils
boycotted one high school yester-
day and hiked absenteeism at two
others in a dispute involving dis-
missal of a principal Who report-
edly supported a drive for Negro
voter registration.
Nearly 1,000 pupils remained
absent from the Sol C. Johnson
High School in suburban Thun-
derbolt following the ouster of Al-
florance Cheatham, the principal.
About 200 pickets assembled in
front of Thompkins High School
and Beach High School in an ef-
fort to spread the boycott. Police
dispersed the pickets and ordered
that picketing be confined to
pairs of students who would not
block school entrances.
Savannah Superintendent of
Education E. Leon McCormack
said Cheatham had been notified
that his contract would not be
renewed for the term starting in
September. He said the principal
then requested his immediate re-
lease and this was granted. No
reason was given for failure to re-
new Cheatham's contract.
Student leaders at Johnson High
School said they believed Cheath-
am was dismissed because he had
supported the Negro voter regis-
tration drive.
Thompkins High reported normal
attendance. At Beach High School,
however, 103 of the 1,000 students
enrolled were absent.

A total of 38 states are needed
