D, McCarty painted a grim picture of state finances, held out the palm leaf of peace to Governor-elect Henry Bellmon, threatened to squelch a Republican uprising in the House, and ended in a hotly worded tirade against the press in general and The Daily. Oklahoman in specific as he spoke to a group of schoolmas- ters near Ada Monday night. McCarty addressed a gather- ing of some 60 Pontotoc County area schoolmen at Homer. The occasion was the group's regu- lar monthly meeting. It was, as he put it, "the first time I've been out among the people since Pony Boy got shot out of the saddle" a reference to Republican Bell- mon's recent general election victory over pony fancier Bill Atkinson. "We've got a new lion tamer on the Hill and he's about to learn the facts of life, "the ebullient House Speaker noted. "I say the state is in a financial straightjacket and we're just going to .have to do .the best we can with what we have be- cause there is going to be no tax cut." McCarty pointed.to increased state expenditures in such areas as mental health, com- mon schools, higher education, highway patrol, merit system raises and capitol office build- ings as examples of places the state will eventually come up with less money to spend than it has on hand. "As you know, up to the Ed- mondson al- ways had a surplus to count he commented. "But, when Edmondson became governor, we just didn't have it. Now, it looks like we will be million short of what we appropriated last time when we go into the uucoming session. "In 1961, for example, we ap- propriated million for com- mon schools. We promised if the funds were available, The mental health program will revert to the days of the 'snake pit' as described once in the Saturday Evening Post unless, it gets more money. The Gov- ernor has added 50 highway patrolmen and 'they'll .have to be paid some way.-And so it goes. "My attitude is that I am going to give Bellmon a chance.: I'm going to treat him a little better than he treats me. I will try to keep perspective and stay above partisan politics. I -am a strong Democrat, but .I'm an. Oklahoman first and I think we- should look over BeUmon's pro- posed budget and'when we think it's good, we. should go along, with him, but we should oppose him when we think he's wrong." McGarty said. he didn't look' for a "big reform program." from Bellmon and said the Gov- ernor-elect seems to be a "very fair and. friendly But, from that point on, the Oklahoma City legislator's talk was anything but hearts and flowers. He noted there are 25 Repub- (Continued on Two) Educator Asks Law That Courts Could Rule On WASHINGTON promi- nent educator proposed today pas- sage of legislation that would en- able a prompt court test on the issue of federal grants to church- related colleges. The suggestion came from Dr. John T. Caldwell, chancellor of North Carolina State College and president of the Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, in a speech prepared for delivery at-the association's an- nual meeting here. He said the legislation he pro- posed should be written' so'that its constitutionality could be fought put in the courts. Caldwell said the nation's pub- lic colleges need federal aid, but that attempts to get it through Congress usually stumble on the church-state issue. "Let us avoid the church-state issue, or resolve it, or forget fed- eral he said. "In any case, let us help get it off dead center." He said the nation's insti- tutions of higher education include 807 that are church-related, 721 public and 512 independent, or nondenominational. The nonpublic institutions enroll about 40 per cent of today's college students. Dr. Edward D. Eddy Jr., presi- dent of Chatham College, a girls' private school in Pittsburgh, asked the- association Monday: "Isn't it high time that the Amer- ican university prepared a decent, respectable burial for the tradi- tional college "They have served an historical purpose and served it he said. "But we've given up banjo clubs and minstrels. Now it's time to face courageously the task of replacing the alumni-dom- inated fraternal system." Eddy said the national fraterni- ty system "has 'failed to adapt itself to the demands of the new student and a changing social pattern. The system can and should be replaced. Vandals Attack Golf Greens At Country Club Vandals have evidently embark- ed on a systematic campaign of destruction at the Oak Hills Golf and Country Club. Pro Chick Clark reported they struck again on Monday night. The vandalism has been going on for weeks. Flag poles at different greens were'.bent over, flags burn- ed off, trap.rakes .destroyed and the surface of the greens dam- OKLAHOMA CITY re- apportionment plan filed by a newly-formed commission was criticized today by Jack Kirton'of Bartlesville, vice president of Citi- zens for Constitutional Reappor- tionment. Kirton, whose group circulated the reapportionment petition last year, opposed the plan because it followed dictates of a federal court order and ignored a 7-membcr per county limit on House members. Oklahoma County would have 19 House members'and Tulsa County 15 under the plan. "The people of Oklahoma voted to enforce Oklahoma's. Constitu- tion; not the order of a 3-man fed- eral Kirton said. "In order to -keep faith .with the people of Oklahoma, I now find it necessary to say that I will file a request for a review of the com- mission's order. The order was filed Saturday by state Treasurer William A. Burkhart and Secretary of State William Christian. Acting Atty. Gen. Fred Hansen did not participate because he does not believe the constitutional amendment creating the commis- sion passed'in last Tuesday's-elec- tion. However, Hansen advised the other two to be guided by the fed- Clarfc said the vandals, evident- ly a band of three or four older boys, have gouged .places out of the greens and then systemati- cally "stamped" over the surface. Any golfer knows that good greens such as those at Oak Hills, are the product of years of effort and constant-care. They are'ex- pensive 'and such activity can lead to permanent damage. Clark said an inspection was made of the course Monday at 9 p.m. and everything was.jship shape. The boys struck after'that hour. Clark said he is posting.-an-offer of for any information leading to the identity of the youngsters involved in the systematic cam- paign of vandalism.

The disagree- ment is on whether Gov. J. How- ard Edmondson had the authority to call a special election for 'it, to be held jointly with the general election. An argument over Oklahoma C o u n t.y districting continued. Eighteen Negro leaders announced support of Sen. Cleeta John Rog- ers, who opposes the alignment of the county's eight senatorial .dis- tricts on the ground-it would di- vide the Negro vote so'none could win a Senate seat. Rogers said he is confident an appeal will be. made on this. He also hit back at Christian who said Monday Rogers seemed to be trying to endear himself to Negro voters. Christian said there is-.'nothing in the law "giving any segment of society the right to elect one of its own to the legislature." Rogers said he told Negro lead- ers earlier he would do everything he could "to see. that the. district lines were not gerrymandered to either guarantee them or'deny them" a chance to elect men of their own race.

Protests against the appearance of Hiss on the Sunday night pro- gram continued. Miller said he learned of this when he'tried to. stop-the ABC program. after .receiving calls from constituents. Miller is the 'congressman from New York's 40th District "I got in touch with one of Geni Eisenhower's Miller said. "I he added, "that the general had already tried to inter- vene through Jim Hagerty and Hagerty, wouldn't do anything about it." Miller was interviewed at Buf- falo General Hospital, where he is undergoing a physical exami- nation. Kobert H. Finch, who was ad- ministrative assistant to Nixon while Nixon was vice president, assailed Monday night an offer of equal air time for Nixon to bal- ance the program in which Hiss, a convicted, perjurer, appeared. Finch said the offer was an "atrocious, 'pathetic gesture." .Hiss commented that the pro- tests had been "organized." "The he said, "were similar in form. I don't regard it as particularly. representative. The more thoughtful people don't complain about an event like this; only those who have been stirred up. So I haven't taken it very'seri- ously." He said he had not been vindic- tive 'sh'ow, and asserted: "Certainly it is'no fun to. take a kick at somebody who is slipping." Nixon was a congressman serv- ing on the House'Committee on Un-American Activities when then a high-ranking State Department official, appeared be- fore the committee in 1948 and first denied he was part of a Com- munist, espionage ring. The same denial before a grand jury later led to. perjury charges. Democratic 'Sen. Thomas' J. Dodd of'Connecticut sent a protest telegram to ABC and the Federal Communications Commission, ex- pressing his "personal disgust" at the network's allowing Hiss "to sit in judgment" of Nixon. He said he asked the FCC to "investigate this entire incident" Dodd said he has had "many political differences" with Nixon, a Republican, "but what is in- volved here has nothing to do with politics." "It seems to me incredible that millions of viewers who turned in to see a Veterans Day.program about our armed forces should have been treated to the spectacle of distinguished American pub- lic, servant being vilified by a con- victed perjurer and-a traitor to this Dodd said.

They will be voting on four separate measures author- izing the issuance of a total of in general obli- gation bonds.. The funds will be used in four different areas. A new city hall will be constructed along with a new service building for the water department and repairs to exist- ing municipal facilities at Seventh and Townsend. A com- pletely new traffic control system for the city will be in- stalled.

President Kennedy will official- ly greet his -guest Wednesday morning, on the lawn of the White House, where the.chancellor will receive military honors. The two. will then begin the first session of their two-day conference. Several ideas have circulated on what the West should propose to the Soviet Union regarding Ber- lin, provided there is-an agree- ment in principle among the four, Western powers directly interest- ed, in the fate of the Communist- encircled city. These ideas range 'from the sug- gestion to propose a conference on the German question in general to less 'ambitious ones that deal only with access rights to the city or with maintaining Berlin's sta- tus quo. Advocates of a general German discussion argue that now, .after the Soviet backdown on the re- moval of missiles from Cuba, the West is in a more-favorable posi- tion'than it has been in since 1358 Soviet Premier Khrush- chev first asked the West to give up Berlin. Among these advocates are'spe- cialists who believe the West should insist that any Berlin set- tlement must include the city as a whole-rnot, only its Western part, as the Soviets proposed. Others who prefer'a step by step approach say that the Krem- lin might now be willing to-con- sider international control of Ber- lin's access routes, with both East and West Germany playing some clearly defined minor role. This idea earlier was rejected by Moscow. It took a personal ex- planation .by Rusk to Adenauer last summer, to persuade the chancellor that setting up of such a control body" would not repre- sent recognition of the Communist East German regime.
