Sulphur attorney Frank Gib- bard, member of a citizens' com- mittee appointed at a mass meet- ing March 6, said a representative of the state auditor's office prom- ised to make the audit as quickly as possible, probably in about a month. Gibbard told the NEWS today the action came as a result of growing dissatisfaction with the administration of the Sulphur school system on the part of some local citizens.

These claims, which contrast sharply with Russian charges that the U. S. civil defense program reflects war-mongering, were revealed today in a 406-page trans- lation of an official Soviet document. Called "Medical and Civil Defense in Total War, the volume was placed on sale by the.

But the movement ap- jpeared to be part of the secret army campaign to paralyze eco- nomic activity. Kennedy Has Own Problem Of Shelter WASHINGTON (AP) -Presi- dent Kennedy, who is urging a nation-wide fallout shelter pro- gram, has a shelter problem right next door. The basement of the Executive Office building, on the west side of the White House, isn't con- sidered safe for a shelter in a nuclear emergency. The old, gingerbread building once housed the State, War and Navy departments. Many of Ken- nedy's top aides are among the federal employes who now work there. Too Many Pipes George Viault, the building warden, says the big vaulted cel- lar might be fine for a shelter except for one a maze of hot and cold water pipes. If a lot of people were huddled down there and the pipes burst, there could be a disaster. So civil defense experts have done the best they can and marked off shelter areas on up- Zverev. The book, based on lectures giv- en at a medical institute in Minsk in 1955-58. gives no hint of- how much progress has been made in carrying out the various plans. In discussing steps to be taken n the event of an attack alert, the authors state that every citizen "must have his own gas mask, a cape made of white, close-knit material, individual first aid kits, and protective stock- ings and gloves." No mention is made of whether these items have been distributed. The text makes clear elsewhere that the articles of clothing are of special design and material. The book gives almost as much attention to germ and gas war- fare as to the hazards of nuclear attack. The .volume is heavily laced poliLical. propaganda and starts out with an attack on "the aggressive ruling circles of cer- tain capitalist states." There are references through- out the book to standby plans for the populace to take shelter in an attack and one statement re- fers to plans "to expand the net- work of existing shelters." Communist propagandists have Ada High School. She has been per floors. These are in inner cor- assisted in the work by Mrs. Cone Magee, assistant librarian."

Reneau added. The library committee is made up of Mrs. Adair, Mrs. Magee, Dr. Tom Granger, Dr. E. H. Nel- son. Donald E. Black and Mrs. Tom B. Lamson. Dr. Granger is chairman and Mrs. Magee is secretary of the committee. Protest Business conditions were just beginning to return to normal af- ter a one-day general strike Mon- day protesting the cease-fire be- tween the French army and the Algerian nationalists, which went into effect that day. A secret army broadcast in Oran called for a two-hour strike there tonight also. The strike' movement developed as the French army and police appeared to be putting up firm opposition to the European ex- tremists seeking to wreck the cease-fire. Ultimatum The secret matum to government forces to clear out of Bab el Oued, a work- ers' quarter in Algiers where trou- ble is frequent, by noon or be considered as occupation, troops. But the government forces stayed put. French gendarmes and secret army commandos battled openly for two hours in Oran Wednesday. Throughout Wednesday night Europeans fired from balconies and windows on French army pa- trols cruising Algiers' deserted streets. Terrorist attacks account- ed for two Moslems dead and four wounded. Cooperation In contrast with the bloodshed between Europeans there was calm throughout Algeria between French army forces and the Al- gerian nationalists. French head- quarters said, leaders of the Na- tionalist Liberation Front in a number of areas had offered their cooperation. For the most part, however, the secret army terrorists roamed un- checked.
