The section is now operating from headquarters on the EC S.Dff Advance Elements Of Pollution Lab Arrive By GEORGE GURLEY Quietly, with no fanfare, the ad- vance elements of the Southwest- ern Regional Water Pollution Field Laboratory arrived in Ada'during September and set to work. Six men make up this advance eantingent. They are but the van- guard in the large force of engi- neers, scientists and technicians who will staff the laboratory once it is in operation.. Under Section Chief Bert Mitch- ell, these men are operating from quarters on the Sast Central campus in the Gym Annex Build- ing. They are now conducting the Arkansas-Red River Basin Water Quality Conservation project. They pinpointing tho salinity and sulphate loads carried by streams in the vast drainage basin of these rivers. Also, they are seeking the sources of this contamination. So, John Doe says, the Red River and Arkansas are salty? So they carry sulphates? So they find out how much and where it all comes from, so what? Why should money be spent on a thing like this? These men are concerned with water, its availability and in what amounts, jts quality. Many areas have reached the end of their rope as far as water goes. No new sources can be eco- nomically developed. Because of pollution, natural or manmade, the waters of the Red municipal or domestic use along much of their courses. But if this pollution can be ana- lyzed If sources of this pollution can be found And finally if these sources can be corrected, you have then, in effect, discovered "X" amount of water which previously was not subject to use.

This will start the second week in the classroom for the 29-year-old Negro whose entry into the 114-year-old university touched off riots that left two men dead and 200 injured.

In a speech punctuated by the arrival and departure of roaring airplanes, Eisenhower turned po- litical only long enough to give his blessing to Republicans B. Hayden Crawford for U. S. Sen- ator and Henry Bellmon for Governor of Oklahoma. His appearance at the airport was a short one, arranged as a part of a campaign tour through the West. He left about 40 min- utes after his plane touched down at Will Rogers: Eisenhower began his talk by declaring it was "non-political" due to the fact that the gather- ing was held on Sunday. He was true to his word, except for brief mentions of Crawford and Bellmon. He spoke vigorously for the need to repudiate politicians who seek -public office merely to gain "personal power." With ob- vious reference to his successor, John Kennedy, he termed public office as "sacred responsibility that cannot be used by glib po- liticians merely to further their private ambitions." and Arkansas are not suitable for1 "It's too Mitchell said, streams is not manmade.

(AP) a stormy General Assembly Cuban President Osvaldo Dorticos Toraddo demanded, to- day that the United Nations con- demn as "an act of war" what le called a U.S. naval blockade. The Cuban president was inter- rupted repeatedly by anti-Castro lecklers. His reference to an al- .eged U.S. naval blockade1 brought a prolonged burst of applause rom the Soviet bloc, a small ;roup of African delegates and some visitors in the public gal- .eries. He received another round of applause when he said: "Cuba'has friends, Cuba, has riendly governments. It is not alone."

It announced it will review: decision by a three-judge federal court in Philadelphia that a 'law requiring Bi- ble reading in public schools vio- lates the federal Constitution. decision by the Maryland Court of a Bal- timore school board regulation calling for a .daily opening exer- cise of Bible reading and recita- tion of The Lord's Prayer. In its last term, the high court ruled unconstitutional a prayer which New York State authorities had directed be used in public schools. The court held that this official prayer breached the Constitution's provision -for separation of .state and religion. between church and state" by its Bible-reading statute. The state's attorney general, the Pennsylvania superintendent of public Abing- ton. Township School Board in sub- urban Philadelphia, appealed to the high tribunal to reverse the decision. The'appeal said that to ban Bible reading in morning op- Eisenhower also warned of what he called a "weakening of the American concept of individ- ual freedom" through the gov- ernment attempts to exert more and more control over its citi- zens. He pointed to requests for power to raise and lower taxes, power to control the Federal Re-' serve Board, a farm bill "to bring about the regimentation of and "control of busi- ness." "When individual rights are being invaded, you must fight he declared, raising his hand for emphasis. At the conclusion of his re- marks, Eisenhower added: "I am delighted' you have nominat- ed Mr. Bellmon for your gov- ernor and Mr. Crawford for your senator." At an earlier point, he recalled being "impressed" by Bellmon at a national. Republican rally at his Gettysburg farm. He also noted that Crawford had worked on the Republican "team" during .the.

A negotiator for the families of the captives said it seemed that "all went thank God." Apparently only a few formalities, such as the wording of the communi- que, remained to be settled before the men are set free and flown to the United States. The optimistic impression came from Mrs. Berta Barreto de los Heros, Havana representative of the Cuban Families Committee. She refused to elaborate on her comment that all seemed welL She said she was pledged to sil- ence during the final stage of tha talks. Made Deal? The likelihood of an impending break was strengthened by a quick trip from 'Havana to Miami by New York attorney James B. Donovan, negotiator for the fam- ilies' committee. Speculation arose that Donovan, who flew back to Havana Sunday night, had arranged special transporta- tion to Florida for the prisoners. Prime Minister Fidel' Castro's government asked .million for all prisoners taken in the Bay of Pigs invasion. About 60 have been freed. Donovan said when he left for Havana last month that he would offer food Another Meetitag Mrs. Barreto said that Donovan was to meet Castro again, pos- sibly today. In a speech opening the Latin American University Games Sun- day night, Deputy Prime Minister Raul Castro assailed U.S. policies and declared any invasion force would face annihilation if it set foot on Cuban soil. Castro, who is Fidel's brother and also armed forces minister, called the Bay of Pigs prisoners a "herd of traitors" and added, "If their masters want to rescue them, let them pay the price that has been fixed."
