Two accidents occurred late Saturday, pushing the total for March to 21. That compares to 40 in the same month of '61. The total for 1962 is now "74, compared to 81 last year at this same time.

The junta asserted the army is united in all parts of Syria and warned plotters and exploit- ers and troublemakers that the general command will take severe punitive measures against them. No Reunion In booting out the civilian gov- ernment, the junta had accused civilian leaders of nullifying land reforms and other measures. It called for a brand of Arab social- but no minion with the ism U.A.R. But now, apparently under pres- sure from the uprising in the north, the junta in repeated broadcasts.talked vaguely of uni- ty with all Arab countries, includ- ing the U.A.R. It seemed to call for some sort of federation, rather than a return to the one- nation setup under which Syria joined Egypt in the U.A.R. in 1958.

(AP) A' dozen gubernatorial prospects ap- peared ready today to jump into Arkansas' boiling political wa- ters vacated over the weekend by Gov. -Orval E. Faubus. Faubus is predicting that up to 20 may get in the swim for the Democratic nomination as his successor. Rep. Dale Alford, D-Ark., and Little Rock attorney Kenneth Cof- felt, previously had announced they would run regardless of Faubus' plans. The four-term governor, pushed into the international spotlight by racial strife, told a statewide tel- evision and radio audience Satur- day night he was bowing out to rest and to write his story of the' Little Rock integration crisis. Faubus used National Guard troops in 1957 in an effort to block federal court-ordered desegrega- tion of Little Rock Central High School. But President Eisenhower federalized the Guard and en- forced integration with federal troops. The governor" closed Little Rock high schools the next year, but federal courts again stepped in and a token plan of integration began operating when the schools opened in August 1959. Arkansas Republican circles remained quiet concerning GOP plans. Winthrop Rockefeller, the Re- publican national committeeman from Arkansas, said he felt Fau- bus' decision "does not change the position of the Republican party, its thinking or 'its pro- gram."

The source said personal letters to each Catholic on the plat- form at a meeting last Friday night of the pro-segregationist Citizens Council.

His resistance was still too fierce, so the officers called for another car. Patrolmen Chesley Gwinn and Norman Farmer arrived at the scene where the other policemen were still wrestling.

Besides the new vacation bene- fits, described by union Presi- dent David J.

President Kennedy warmly praised the union and industry for. meeting his appeal for an early and responsible agreement. The President said the settlement was obviously non-inflationary and "a solid base price stability." He called it "in- dustrial statesmanship' of the highest order."

Of occupied housing units in the county, according to the 1960 census of housing, are equipped with flush with bathtub or shower, with television sets. Incidentally, as a communica- tion medium, the county appar- ently prefers pictures to sound. The census takers counted only radios and telephones. Automobiles are pretty popu- lar, too, as you might suspect if you've ever hunted a "parking slot on Main Street on Saturday afternoon. There were fam- ilies who admitted to having a set of wheels somewhere around the place. Of that total, reported two cars in the family, while no less than 360 said they had three'or more. The "Own Your Own Home" slogan seems to have gone over pretty big with countians. Ap- proximately 64 per cent of the houses were occupied by owners as against by rent- ers. More than half the county homes were found to be equipped with washing machines: of them. However, only 616 had dryers. (The report doesn't state how many back yards are fitted with clotheslines.)
