(NEWS Staff Clash Brews Over Baptist Doctrine SAN FRANCISCO (APJ-Strong support was indicated at the Southern Baptist Convention to- day for a move to tighten the doctrinal reins on seminaries and other denominational agencies. An effort also was being pushed to ban a Baptist-published book, "The Message of Genesis." Such a step, however, described as unprecedented in Baptist his- tory, faced keen opposition from influential church leaders. Both proposals came on a tide of charges by conservative forces that so-called "liberal" theologi- cal trends were evident in church institutions. Demands were made for stricter controls. 1 The issue has stirred a .running controversy in the lO-millioh-mem- ber church body in recent times. The denomination's 51-membcr executive committee sought to head off an open -clash on the matter Wednesday by putting through a plan for drafting a statement on just what historic Baptists beliefs are. Baptists have always shunned binding creeds. However, the maneuver failed to check the calls for stronger action.. 'The Rev. Dr. K. Owen White of Houston introduced a resolution protesting "dissemination of theo- logical views in any of our sem- inaries which would undermine faith in the historical accuracy and doctrinal integrity of tha Bi- ble." The views disapproved were not specified. However, another minister, The Rev. Ralph Pgwell, of Kansas City, leveled the book-banning resolution at the recently issued 'The Message of Genesis" by Dr. Ralph Elliott, an Old Testament scholar. Powell's proposal asks that the denominational publishing house, Broadman Press, recall all copies of the book, -and cease circulat- ing it. In it, Dr. Midwestern Theological Seminary, Kansas City, supports the views that parts of the religious truths expressed in Genesis are couched in para- ble rather than literal terms. The convention Wednesday re- elected The Rev. Dr. Herschel H, Hobbs of Oklahoma City to a second term as president. ____ Shucks! Lovesick Lad Was AWOL From Army KHANG KHAY, Laos (AP) Laos' Ihree rival political princes met in the rebel-held Plaines Des Jarres today, and neutralist Prince Souvanna Phou- ma said the long-awaited agree- ment on a coalition government might be reached Friday. Souvanna said his -first meeting with Prince Boun Oum of the right-wing Vientiane government and pro-Communist Prince. Soup- hanouvong encountered little dif- ficulty. "If we continue to work in a similar, atmosphere, I am sure we will reach a final agreement Fri- Souvanna said. It was the princes' first meet- ing since January. Boun Oum was accompanied to Khang Kay by his deputy premier and royal government strongman Gen. Phoumi Nosavan. Souvanna's optimism contrasted sharply with a general feeling among diplomats and observers in Vientiane before the. meeting that it had little chance of sue: cess. Boun Oum and Gen. Phoumi had given no advance indicati9n that they would back down on the issue that broke- up. earlier at- tempts- at forming a coalition un- der Souvanna. The conservative Vientiane leaders had insisted on retaining the-defense.and interior portfolios in a coalition govern- ment to give .them control of the army and police. Before leaving for Khang Khay, Phoumi declared .once again that Souvanna can have these, posts only if he can prove he is truly, neutral arid .guarantees they will not fall into the hands of Sou- phanouvong's Pathet Lao. Western diplomats generally feared that' failure 'of'thVprinces' to agree would be followed by a" new military drive by the Pathei; Lao.. Souvanna has the. backing the United States, the Soviet Un- ion, and.the other powers at the 14-nation Geneva conference on Laos. The United States hopes a government pledged to neutrality under Souvanna will take the Red threat off neighboring Thailand and end the need for U.S. troops there. The troops were -rushed into Thailand after the Pathet Lao's recent military gains, swept to the northeast Thai frontier. Terrorists Strike In Algeria 4 Die; Buildings Set Afire Army says it didn't try to throw a roadblock in the way of William H. Mahoney's romance with a Ko- rean girl. Mahoney, the Army declared Wednesday, went AWOL from Ft. Lewis, Wash., about the time his application to marry Miss Song In Cha was to be forwarded to In response to queries, an Army spokesman said: Mahoney never filed a marriage application while he was in Korea. He applied for a six-month duty extension but bypassed his com- pany commander so was told to reapply through channels. He did not reapply for several the Army command in.

Kennedy Tax Revision Bill Is In Trouble WASHINGTON Kennedy's tax revision'- bill ap- peared in deeper trouble today after being criticized sharply at a closed meeting of Democratic senators. Opponents of the bill said pri vately they were convinced now there was a good chance it even- tually will be dropped. And Re- publicans voiced such a demand in floor speeches Wednesday. However, Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., who opposes the measure's two key provisions, told a report- er the finance committee he heads will continue its consideration of the tax bill. It was learned the Virginian told Kennedy a few days ago the measure would receive a com plete study from his group. The committee has been giving the bill a slow-motion airing since it started public hearings April 2. The House passed the measure March 29, keeping the bulk of Kennedy's proposals. Wednesday's Democratic meetr ing was in the office of the par- ty's Senate leader, Mike Mans- field of Montana. It was one, of the periodic sessions he go over the Senate program and to relay the results 'of congres- sional leaders' conferences with President Kennedy. The tax bill in general was the chief subject of the meeting, with investment credit to give business a billion incentive to mod- ernize its plant and equipment. .'The administration believes the credit .would go a long way toward making: the economy more effi- cient and .productive.---------- -'The withholding plan is counted on to help pay for the investment credit It was learned that Sen. Robert S. Kerr, second in sen- iority on the Democratic side of the finance committee, led off at the meeting with a defense of the withholding plan. 'He emphasized the present tax losses from un- reported dividend and interest in- come. Byrd .then gave a rebuttal, stat- ing his previously expressed view that the system would be unduly burdensome and that the Treas- ury has greatly exaggerated the losses.

(NEWS Staff Student's Problem He Learns Too Easily OAS Burns University; Hundreds Of Europeans Cheer From Side Streets ALGIERS Secret Army Organization re- newed its terror campaign today after a seven-day truce, mowing down'Moslems, burning down the main building of Algiers University and setting fire to the town hall and police station in a suburb. Three phosphorous bombs started a roaring fire in the science and medicine- building of Algiers Univer- sity, Algiera's main seat of learning. Leaping flames were brought under control two hours after the fire started. The main building, .with its lab- oratories and was gutted, but the blaze was kept from spreading to ad- j jacent buildings. It was the most spectacular city fire in the secret army's ef- forts to turn Algeria into "scorched earth" before the Mos- lems take over an independent Algeria this summer.

And it took'a little-time for Machado: to real- ize he had a problem child on his hands. The first inkling he had was when'he described "curve stitch- ing" to the class. This is a deal in which, by arranging .a whole flock of straight lines in the proper geometrical pattern, you wind up with.what'appears to be a bunch of curved lines, in a different sort of pattern. useful in. giving students some idea of the nature of a curve and its formation, and it's used on the high school level for both plane and solid figures. Well, the day after the class discussion, Joe 'turned up with an example of-the technique: like this: As you can see, it's just a shade complicated. Machado looked at it. He turned it over and studied the back for a while. "And' I still don't, understand .exactly how he did Macha- do sighs. Burris Says He Held Up Allotment Transfer STILLWATER (AP) An agri- culture official in Oklahoma and his predecessor at .the post indi- cated Wednesday they didn't like the federal law which allowed transfer of cotton allotments from Oklahoma to Texas.

Incidentally, Joe not only made his own abacus, he .-stands the theory'clearly and can add on the thing like a madman.

Next thing that' happened, Machado who should have known better by this.time asked for an example of a com- plete electrical circuit. And what Joe turned 'up with was a homemade electric mo- tor.
