Kennedy talked over foreign policy prob- lems and organization matteis to- day with Secretary of State-desig- nate Dean Rusk. Kennedy's headquarters said he will confer Saturday with the in- coming vice president, Lyndon B. Johnson. 1 Andrew Hatcher, Kennedy's sistnnt press secretary, said John- son would arrive with a group of others. Hatcher said he had no information on the makeup of the group, or on the purpose of the conference. Board Defers School Action, The Pocatello School Board vot- ed at noon today to postpone ac- tion on a proposed school construction bond issue until a spe- cially appointed citizen's commit- tee has lime to inform the public of-the facts and problems concern- ing the bond issue. .The hoard was meeting today to set the dale and call the bond election. It was the second time U met for such a purpose and the second time it decided not to pro- ceed. The board hesitated the first time because there was not total agreement among its members about the site for a new high school. The board gave no indication when it plans to consider the is- sue again. The proposed bond issue would include funds for construction of a second high school, for construc- tiort of 3 new elementary school, -for an addition to Tyhee elemen- tary school and for a four-room ..addition to Lincoln elementary 1 school to be used for retarded anc! handicapped children. The board action today to delay was at the request of Mrs. Doris Lymon, .appointed by the board Monday to head a citizen's com- mittee organized to acquaint the public with the issue. Laos Planes Hit Red Posts VIENTIANE, Laos (AP) The Laotian government's four newly acquired planes from the United Stales pounded the pro-Commu- nist rebels' artillery positions 70 miles norlh of Vientiane today for the third straight day. No reports were available so far on lhc damage but military experts said the Laotian pilots- trained in France and probably would need more of fly- ing, tn sharpen Iheir aim. So far there was no sign of air retaliation from the Soviet Union, Communist China or North Viet Nam, which support the Pathel Lao rebels. But Western intelli- gence sources reported an old model Soviet spotter plane, was observed directing rebel artillery fire on Monday, the day before the United States delivered Ihe four propeller-driven trainer planes the government forces are using. Use of lhc planes for attack missions raised fears among Brit- ish and French diplomats here that the Soviets or Red Chinese would supply combat planes for use against the anti-CommunisI forces. The planes wcre reported at- tacking in the area of the K Lie River, 70 miles north of Vien- tiane, where two companies ol government forces were reported engaged with a rebel force ol about the same size. Army sources said Premier Boun Oum's government is ap- .plying steady pressure on this front in an effort to link up with government units pushing down from Luang Prabang, the royal capital. Telephone Book Delivery Slated Jan. 23-25 has been set for deliv- ery of telephone directories, accord- ing lo E. A. Claycomb. unit man- ager for Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Co, Claycomb sa'd about books will be distributed in the Pocatello- Alameda area. Rusk flew to Palm Beach from Vashington Thursday night and met wilh Kennedy this morning at the Kennedy family home. In testimony to the Senate For- eign Relations Committee in Washington Thursday, Rusk indi- cated the new administration plans no immediate policy departures in dealing with specific trouble spots around Ihe world. Kennedy announced lie is rc- :aining two Eisenhower adminis- :ration officials. Joseph Charyk will continue to serve as undersecretary of the Air Force, i Thomas D. Morris, now assistant director of Ihe Budget Bureau, will be assistant secre- tary of supply and logistics.1 Picks Undersecretary The president-elect Thursday night chose Edward Gudeman, 'hicago investment banker; to be undersecretary of commerce. 54, is a former vice president and at present a direc- tor of Sears, Roebuck and Co. Last year he became a general partner in the investment banking firm of Lehman Brothers. He is a graduate of Harvard College. In his Washington testimony, Rusk was 'questioned by senators about his views on Red China, Cuba, summit conferences, Amer- ican fliers being 'held by the Soviet -Union, and U.S. relations with the nation's allies. v Indications are Rusk will have clear sailing in winning Senate confirmation of. his nomination, which Kennedy will formally sub- mit after taking office a week from today. On Communist Rusk said .he sees.'ho present prospect of the United States establishing normal diplomatic 'relations .with the Red.regime. But he said, "The presence, in mainland China of a large and powerful 'force is one of the facts we cannot ignore." 'Much'Dishirbtd' As for the anti-American Castro government of Cuba, Rusk said he'is-very much-disturbed by that siluatinn. He called for intensified efforts'to get the truth to the people of Latin America, through Snow For Weekend Occasional snow is pre- dicted for uoatlier in ax Poeatello, lint temperatures ifr continue .o h? above jfffjjgj IfTOpOS 'I liu high :15 am] Saltirilay is luniglll 20. lly I-.A1U.I-: L.
