Mrs. Col- vin's vines spread from two hills, planted in early May. The vines moved steadily down a fence for about 100 feet, turning off when they could locate anything to support them. They covered a plum tree, angled down another fence and even soared up into a neighbor's tree where one huge squash hangs resplendent 20 feet from the ground.

(NEWS Staff ____________ Phillips Rips Unenforced Ethical Code By JOHN BENNETT Oklahoma teachers are not en- forcing their own ethical codes and are too reluctant to inform the public of advances in educa- tion....... This criticism came from Fer- man Phillips, Oklahoma education association executive secretary who spoke Monday afternoon to' the Pontotoc County Teachers As- sociation. Phillips, who usually winds up for heated oratory before teach- ers' threw most of the criticism their way. "I feel we are not enforcing strongly enough our own profes- sional ethical .codes within the teaching said Phil- lips as he addressed the group of nearly 400 teachers. "Often we have seen violations of ethics and professional standards among teachers, yet have done nothing to punish the offenders." He compared the OEA to other professional groups such as the American Medical Association and the Oklahoma Bar Associa- tion, and said in so many words the OEA was not doing the job for the teaching profe.csion as these groups for their profession. "For example the lawyers who are guilty of violating codes of ethics are tried by their own pro- fessional members and the medi- cal profession strictly forbids any violations of remarked Phillips. "Yet we see occasionally violations of ethics among teach- ers and see that nothing happens about it." He also said teachers were not vocal enough in informing the public of advances and changes in Oklahoma's educational sys- tern. "We have been Council Considers Another Big Paving District In Ada By GEORGE GURLEY Two paving districts received consideration at Monday night's City Council meeting. The first 73, has just passed through the protest period and the council passed a resolu- tion acknowledging the sufficiency of protest. It contains 11 blocks and one alley. Hard on the heels of this dis- trict, council members passed resolutions 1 and 2 on Paving District 74, the largest ever ad- vanced in the city. It contains a total of 37 blocks and carries an estimated cost of Con- sulting engineer Harry Hulett, Oklahoma City, presented the dis- tricts. Shortly after Paving District 73 passed through the protest period, council members learned of the windfall of the Public Works Ac- celeration Act. Under this new federal program, Uncle Sam foots half the bill for local public works projects. Some of the citizens who pro- tested out of District 73, realizing they stood a chance to get their paving at half price, decided they wanted back in the district. The only way'this could be done is via legal petitions. These are now being drawn for about -10 blocks and when signed, these blocks will'be formed as District 73-A and later will be'combined with the original district. At the last meeting in Septem- ber, council members passed a resolution outlining their policy in relation to PWAA. If federal funds for paving projects are not se- cured, they will be dropped. An exception to this policy will .be the 11 blocks and one alley in District 73.. The marked upsurge in interest in paving is due, of course, to the possibility of getting such im- provements at bargain basement prices. As it now stands, the city-will initially seek federal participation on four local projects, Paving Paving District 74 and the' sewer project at the northeastern edge of. the city. Other programs could be forthcoming. i r i gineers for districts seeking fed- eral funds will not prepare 'pre- assessment maps which have usually been offered here. Preparation of these maps is time consuming and bypassing them could save as much as 30 days. City officials felt that .local citizens, realizing they stood a chance, to get paving for half- price, would not object to not having maps on these projects. Actually, they are not required under the law. They have been made available here in the past as a courtesy or public relations measure. However, many of the blocks in U.N. Looks For Fiery Cuban Talk Castroites May Push Charges Of Yank Aggression UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. delegates look for more fireworks over Cu- ba following President Os- valdo Dorticos Torrado's blast against the United States.

Until Dorticos addressed .the General Assembly on the U.S. delegation had -the impres- sion Fidel- Castro's regime would not press its usual charge of ag- gression this year. But the bitter- ness of the Cuban president's assault left the Americans'uncer- tain. No Ones Dorticos gave no hint in his hour and 45-minute speech what strategy his delegation would pur- sue.

The decision is final and binding on both parties. It was made by arbitrator Syl-. vester Garrett, with the union dissenting and the" railroad con- curring. George E. Leighty, president of the AFL-CIO Order of Railroad Telegraphers represented his un- ion on-the three-man board and the railroad's chairman, Ben W. Heineman, represented the car- rier. Ends Dispute The arbitration winds up a dis- pute that brought a month-long strike which crippled rail trans-- portation large part of the' Midwest. After lengthy negotiations here with the aid of government medi- ators, the strike was ended with agreement to. submit the unsettled issues to binding arbitration. Parts of. the .dispute, including new and more generous layoff benefit provisions, were negoti- ated: The crucial'issues were sub- mitted to Garrett, who. was chosen by President Kennedy as the neu- tral man on the arbitration board. Musi Give Notice Under the decision, when the railroad wants to discharge teleg- raphers it must give the union ad- vance notice and discuss the matter. But Garrett ruled that final ac- tion was ultimately up to the rail- road, a management decision. This principle, enunciated earli- er by a White House emergency board which examined the issues, is one all the nation's railroads have been seeking as a means of ending what the carriers call their term for unneeded workmen.
