The controversial alley runs be- tween Rennie and South Broad- way. The developers of the new supermarket have planned to pave the entire alley, bearing all the cost. On Feb. 23, the council met with Vernon Roberts. Ada attorney for the supermarket chain; Alfred M. Gladstein, vice president of the concern: Troy Melton, local real- tor who had acquired the prop- erty, and a' representative from the architectural firm designing the building. Also present was Jim Gassaway, local attorney, who appeared in behalf of Mack Braly. It is Braly's mother, Mrs. Lottie Braly, who owns property on the south side of the alley.

But the rebels declared they were strong enough to win victory. A statement issued by Nasser's office in Cairo said the president, who lost the Syrian branch of the U.A.R. in a revolt last Sept. 28, is ready to exert every effort aimed at preserving Syria and averting bloodshed. From the rebel-held Syrian city of Aleppo, 400 miles to Ihe north- east, Col. Luaay Atassi broadcast a call to the military junta run- ning the Damascus government for a truce. Atassi announced that he has taken command of the forces in Syria's northern region which re- belled Monday against the junta and called for reunion with the United Arab Republic. Alassi's truce appeal was broad- cast shortly after Radio Damascus transmitted a junta ultimatum to the Aleppo garrison to surrender or be considered in mutiny and punished accordingly. Implying that the junta already had troops afield, Atassi urged it to halt movements toward Aleppo to prevent bloodshed and preserve unity to the ranks. The rebel radio, which described itself as the voice of the U.A.R., said the colonel had imposed a curfew on Aleppo "to pave the way for the northern command to settle the national problem quietly (Continued on Page Two) Burning Up Cash Is All In Day's Work NEW YORK (AP) Lots of people figuratively burn up money.

(AP) months of frustrating de- lays, the initial test flight of the high-energy Centaur space rocket is set for Friday. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced the two-stage rocket will be launched on an intended ballistic trajectory lasting 15 minutes. The vehicle should reach an altitude of 300 miles before plunging -back- into the Atlantic1 Ocean, miles from the starting point. No payload will be carried. The test will provide the first flight data on how powerful liquid hydrogen behave in space. This supercold fuel, which must be kept at a temperature of 423 degrees below zero, provides .40 per cent better performance than chemical fuels employed in pres- ent U.S. rocket engines. Two liquid hydrogen engines with total thrust of pounds drive the second stage of the 107- foot Centaur. The first stage is a modified Atlas missile with 367-000 pounds of thrust. This combination is capable of placing satellites inlo earlh orbit, landing pounds on'the moon, or hurling pounds to Mars or Venus. These weights are considerably greater than the capability of tills nation's biggest present space booster, the Atlas-Agena B. Cen- taur is expected to fill a gap be- tween Agena B and the more powerful Saturn class of boosters being developed. Problems encountered in de- veloping liquid hydrogen as a propellant delayed the launching nearly a year. NASA feels the troubles have been licked, but of- ficials do not expect a perfect flight on Ihe first try. Special Session On Redistricting Edmondson Plans To Confer With Legislative Leaders By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS State Treasurer William A. Burkhart asked Gov. J. Howard Edmondson today to call a special session .of the legislature so it can legally reapportion its 'member- ship. In a letter to the governor, he said if the legal struggle continues over legislative reapportionment, it will result in chaos and destroy the people's confidence in state government. Burkhart; a Democratic candidate for governor, also proposed a special election on the issue after the reap- portionment session. He said this is necessary "so our next legislature will be properly elected, and confidence restored in legislative'acts and purposes." Edmondson said' he would confer with legislative leaders to see what their attitude would be toward a special session' and whether anything could be accom- plished by calling one. "There is no purpose in calling a special session unless there is a reasonable possibility of accom- plishing Edmondson said. "That depends on what a majority of the legislators'think." _.....__ ____ Edmondson added a warning: last night awarded Hart Construe- "The federal courts have in ef- tion Co., Ada, an contract j feet said if the states don't clean for addition of two classrooms j up their own houses, the federal and a kitchen-cafeteria unit to j courts might do it for them."

"It never reached the point where it was necessary to launch the ground alert the sources said.
