after the missile was airborne at
9:25 a.m. -
It came as a heavy roar like
the sound of bombers flying high
overhead. Windows rattled in

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. ()-Gov.
Orval Faubus last night ordered
the National Guard troops away
from Central High School a few
hours after a federal court ordered
him to stop interference with the
school's integration plan.
The guard left at 6:25 p.m.
Faced with the injunction, Fau-

dents who have been barred from

they attempted to enter Sept. 4,

Faubus spelled out his stand on
a three-station television hookup

school and called out the guard.

Faubus in his speech said Judge

Dies at 91
HELSIKI (A) - -Jan Sibelius,
91, the great, brooding Finnish
composer, died last night from
a brain hemorrhage at his seclud-
ed woodland home outside Hel-
He was best known popularly
over the world for the sweeping
sonorities of his tone peom "Fin-
landia" and to musicians for the
craftsmanship of the dark, mysti-
cal music that challenged both
their wonder and the critical pow-
Left a Mystery
Sibelius left a mystery for the
musical world to puzzle over. His
last published works came out in
the late 1920s and he is believed
to have done some major compos-
ing since. He died without saying.
The craggy-faced giant long
had been regarded as among the
world's foremost composers.
Shaven - headed, his brooding
face lined with age, he remained
out of the world spotlight the last
20 years. He had published no
musical works after 1929. But the
whole world joined in a swelling
outburst of praise and gifts for
the maestro on his 90th birthday,
Dec. 8, 1955.
Joved Cigars
He was showered with mes-
sages, recordings and flowers, and
loaded down with his favorite
cigars and claret.
He once said: "Cigars are my
great passion. I smoke them night
and day."
Sibelius was poverty stricken
early in his career. But his genius
became so compelling that by 1925
the Finnish government granted
him a pension amounting to $2,000
a year.
Wrote 'Finlandia'
It enabled him to spend all his
time composing and to find relax-
ation puttering about in the shrub
garden of his villa about 13 miles
from here. He built the house him-
self 53 years ago. A big white
rustic house under the trees, he
slared it with his wife Aino, for
whom the house was named.
Great works flowed from his
pen. The "Swan of Tuonela," with
its dark brooding philosophy of
Hades and death, became second
to "Finlandia" in the repertories
of the West. His symphonies,
especially those in E and in D,
were: widely played.
. His Karelia Suite, his hymns for
male choirs, his piano pieces and
violin concertos, all made their
mark in the world's music.

Regent s Liberalize Rules

Daily Editor
The Regents yesterday liberalized the regulations governing stu-
dent loans in order to increase their-use by students.
At the same time, however, they heard a report indicating that
an economic squeeze on students has already done much to put long-
dormant loan funds into circulation.
The revised regulations permit an extension of the period of
time covered by a loan and lift the former limit, $250 a semester or
a total of $500, to an unspecified figure based "upon a number of
factors which the committee -
(will) take into account."
Interest rates of three per cent aN e
