The candidates will start Monday making closed-door appearances before the Legislative Committee of the Oklahoma Education Association. Most of the major candidates are to meet with the 45- member OEA committee Monday, Tuesday and Wednes- day, and others may be called later. The OEA is comprised principally of school teachers who are pressing for higher salaries and better educa- tional programs. Principals and superintendents of public schools along ---------------with college professors also are members of the associa- tion. Oklahoma now has about teachers, and they have had much success in recent years in per- suading political candidates to adopt their goals or at least come close to them. Minimum salary for teachers is now a year, and it is to go up next year to Adopted by the association this winter was a goal to boost the minimum salary to for the 1963-64 school year and for the 1964-65 year. This would take additional mil- lions and make the money pinch oven more severe at the Capitol. But schoolmen point out the goals still are below the national average, and say Oklahoma must catch up with other states or con- tinue to lose its top teachers. Virtually all the candidates have said they are for improving the school system as much as pos- sible. But several of them have not yet come out with a specific program for education. Former Gov. Raymond Gary is to make a major speech Thursday night at Norman, unveiling his program for education. Gary has said he.wants to finance fully the present little' chance of increasing it much. George Miskovsky, Oklahoma City, is pushing for school district reorganization now, as he did in his gubernatorial campaign four years ago. He says small, weak schools should be consolidated so Council Posts Are Four of the present City Coun- cil filed for re-election and a new name was dropped in. All coun- cil posts are unopposed. When filing closed Friday at 5 p. m.. the council filing showed: Ward 1 David 0. Howe Ward 2 Carl M. Mayhall Ward 3 Roy Sneed Ward 4 Sid Spears At Large Joe Bonar Sneed, a retired employe of filed in place of Lee Shirley. Shirley decided not to make his third race due to pres- sure of personal business! Sneed is well-known here. Under the present charter, it is believed that an election is re- quired. Ihe- names-will appear on the bailor for the Tues- day, March 20 election and the candidates must get one vote each in order to be elected. However, another important matter is scheduled for the MarcK 20 election: Vote- on the new city charter. Actually, the charter being presented to the electorate has few changes one of them is the stipulation that an unop- posed slate of candidates need not be voted on. For detailed story on charter revisions see page 13. But, an entire substitute char- ter is the matter up for vote, not just amendments. Carl Mayhall, currently mayor, is the only one of the council that overthrew some incumbents and others in the election of 1958. The water supply problem was a principal issue. In the. interven- ing years, four men have resigned or not run for re-election one at a time.

The speech, which was made Friday, was the premier's con- cluding address to the committee, the governing body of the Com- munist party. A brief summary of the speech was made public Friday, pointing out 'Khrushchev denied a crisis existed in Soviet agriculture. The text came out Saturday night. .Nowhere did he discuss publicly foreign affairs, even to breathe a word about the approaching dis- armament conference in Geneva, nor the nuclear tests held in abey- ance in the United States. His only reference to the world outside the Soviet Union was a ref- erence to American agriculture. He admitted the United Slates was producing crops in such abundance that surpluses were developing, .but that, he said, was because millions of people in America'are starving and not al- lowed to eat surpluses piling up in government warehouses. This is a new line taken in recent So- viet propaganda.
