School Fire
In Kentucky
arson investigators poked through
the smoldering ruins of the Ken-
tucky State College gymnasium
yesterday to see if an early-morn-
ing fire could be linked to student
All signs pointed to arson, but
no arrests had been made and the
chief investigator said no clear,
lead has yet been found.
The fire, causing an estimated
.$100,000 damage, climaxed four'
days of student demonstrations
against school regulations and the
administration of the Negro col-
Students Expelled"
Two teachers were fired Satur-
day and 12 students expelled for
allegedly fomenting a g i t a t i o n
against the administration of
President R. B. Atwood.
Many students packed their be-
longings and left for home after
the fire. Class attendance was
down about two-thirds.
State police reported at least}
five small fires were set Sunday
night in dormitories, but were put
out by the students in time.
Young said preliminary investi-i
gations indicated there was a
small explosion. He likened it to
what would happen when fumes
from gasoline poured on the floor
Question Students
State police questioned the 12
expelled students and the two
teachers who were dismissed.
All were members of the Frank-
fort chapter of the Congress of
Racial Equality, an organization
aimed at achieving integration by
peaceful sit-ins at lunch counters
and other public places.
Atwood said he didn't know who
was behind the burning of the
gym. "In my mind it is somebody
hitting back. I don't know who."

STUDENT ARRESTED-Istanbul demonstrators protested Turkish Premier Adnan Menderes' govern-
ment yesterday. Students clashed with soldiers within sight of the NATO foreign ministers meeting.
New Demonstrations Strike Korea

* i

SEOUL MP)-New student dem-
onstrations rolling up in the south
confronted South Korea's care-
taker government with its first
possible test yesterday.
Seoul was quiet, but the dem-
onstrations that unseated Presi-
dent Syngman Rhee's regime also
began in the south and spread to
the capital.
The demonstrators in the south
central city of Taegu and the
southeast port of Pusan yesterday
defied martial law. They carried
placards reading: "Dissolve the
National Assembly. This is the
order of the people."
No Compliance
The Assembly, still dominated
by Rhee's Liberal party, showed
no inclination to comply. First it
elected an opposition Democrat as
speaker to succeed the late Lee

Name Donegan
As FPC Head
WASHINGTON (') -- President
Eisenhower yesterday named a
replacement for Federal Power
Commissioner William R. Connole.
At the same time, the White
House said Eisenhower feels FPC
members should protect the inter-
ests of the entire United States
economy, not any one segment.
Eisenhower nominated 53-year-
old Thomas J. Donegan, a one-
time FBI agent now on the Sub-
versive Activities Control Board,
to take over Connole's seat on the
FPC when Connole's five-year
term runs out June 22. Both are
listed as political independents.
In dropping Connole, the Presi-
dent brushed aside protests from
some Democratic congressmen
and mayors of big eastern cities
who contended Connole has been
the only power commissioner who
fought to hold down consumer
prices of natural gas.
