But unless the Senate accepted such a measure in the exact form it lassed the House, the bill would have to go Keller Wednesday afternoon and told him that they had to have the old section ready for the open- ing of school. Dr. Sensenbaugh said Keller as- sured him that everything pos- sible would be done to get the old building in a condition fit for use fay the opening of school. The renovation wor1-: in the old building consists of placing some tile facing and improving toilet facilities. A stairwell in the old building has been torn out and the stage is being removed from the multi-purpose room. Stairwell In New Section The new stairwell is scheduled to be placed in the new building near the connection between the old and new structures. Upon removing the stage from the multi-purpose room, the work- ers encountered termites and as a result must now replace a con- siderable amount of woodwork. The educators feel they must have the eight rooms in the old building by the opening of school or there might be a delay in the opening of school for those stu- dents. Other Buildings Used There is one class of students already being housed in the grange hall and two classes of Negroes being taught in another building.

Southpaw Chris Sole was the winning hurler for Frederick's Francis Scott Key Post boys as he scattered six hits. Meanwhile, his teammates were whacking out 11 hits off the Bel Air hurler. Sole fanned 10 batters. The big bat of Wayne Hawes provided quite a thrill for local fans as he blasted a home run with one man on in the eighth inning to close out the scoring in the game.

During the luncheon Khrush- chev told Fanfani that the Soviet Union could be compared with a caterpillar lying peacefully on the ground. It can be touched and'nothing happens, but if you rub it the wrong way it curls up and reacts violently. Khrushchev said. "That is how we are when you rub us the wary Khrush- chev said. Fanfani did not reply. At the Kremlin talks Wednes- day night, Khrushchev said he is still determined to sign a sepa- rate peace treaty with East Ger- many but is ready to give "what- ever guarantee is wanted" for West Berlin.

Krepps and Smith fought their way through a window in the for- ward part of the bus. They said the rear door wouldn't open. Most of those who died apparently were seated toward the rear. A floating tire and ropes thrown from shore helped two sisters from Milwaukee, Wis., to survive the ordeal. They were Nora Pan- nier and her sister, Vynita Win- ter, both teachers.
