(AP) A federal court has ordered that criminal contempt pro- ceedings be .started against Mississippi's governor and lieutenant governor.

Johnson was or dered Thursday by the 5th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals at Orleans. The Justice Department said i; Washington its next -step in th contempt proceedings would b determined by the detailed in structions of the court order which it has not yet received. Already Convicted Barnett and Johnson have al ready been convicted of civil con tempt, although no decision has been made on penalties, for their part in attempting to block the enrollment of Negro James H Meredith at Ole Miss. Barnett faces the possibility ._ jail and daily fines of ant Johnson a daily fine until such as "the -court deem they have purged .themselves. Criminal contempt is punish- ment for past violations of a cour order. Civil contempt is itended to force compliance with an or- der. In civil contempt, penalties can continue until compliance is achieved. He's Surprised At Jackson, Barnett expressed surprise at the court's action. "I hadn't dreamed of he said, declining further comment. Johnson declined comment. University officials continued to probe the wrecking Thursday night of the dormitory room o two students who ate supper with Meredith in the school cafeteria At least five other white students also dined with Meredith.

Communists have launch- ed a massive attack on Indian troops at the east end of the Him- alayas and fierce fighting is now going on, a Defense Ministry spokesman said today. The Chinece attack on Indian po- sitions near .Walong followed an Indian attack that, captured some Chinese outposts, the spokesman said. After restricted fighting in one area which began Wednesday, .the Red Chinese attacked on a massive scale north, and west of Walong, he said. Chinese troops are attacking in considerably superior numbers, the spokesman said. No other action was reported on the Himalayan battle front. The Walong attack was the first major fighting since the offensive into India ground to a temporary halt three weeks ago after capture of some square miles. The spokesman said the Red Chinese around Walong had not advanved when last reports came in shortly before he talked to j reporters. The Chinese attack was trig- gered, he said, by a new Indian army policy of probing Red Chi- nese lines in an effort to keep them-from consolidating their po- sitions. This policy is also now being followed near Towang, where the other major thrust by the Chinese has penetrated into northeastern India. The Walong thrust, 15 miles west of the Burma border, is po- tentially one of the most danger- ous of 13 Red Chinese penetra- tions into India. Walong lies in the valley of the Luhit River that forms a natural highway down through.the moun- tains to the densely populated plains of upper Assam State. Indian troops attacked Red Chi- nese positions a few miles north- west of Walong in the jumbled slopes of the lower Himalayas. A spokesman said "our troops were able to occupy the forward slopes of the Chinese position in'spite of heavy enemy fire." The Indian attacks came after four weeks of retreat. They were not in the nature of a full-scale offensive. That lies in the future.

Gen. Fea. Corp.) Two Ada swimming instruc- tors who saved the life of a young'boy last summer Thurs- day night were awarded, the coveted Certificate. of 'Merit of the American National Red Cross. Honored for -their actions were Mrs. Margaret Bentley Long, now a teacher at Wynne- wood, and Henry C. "Danny" French III, 709 West Twentieth, a student at East Central. The presentation was made Thursday evening at the regu- lar meeting of the Greater Ada Kiwanis'Club. Mrs. Long and French' were instructors in the annual summer swimming pro- gram sponsored by the .local civic club. Making the presen- tation Thursday evening at the Aldridge Hotel was Forrest D. Hudson, of the Ki- wanis Club of .Greater Club. According to Mrs. Billie Jean Floyd, water safety chairman for Pontotoc this brings'' the total number of.Oklahoma residents receiving .this recog- nition to 60.. Awards for saving life were.established by the Red Cross in 1913. The two recipients of the high- est award given'to individuals by the American National Red Cross were teaching swimming classes at Wihtersmith. pool at the time of Paul Floyd's near drowning. He was a member of a class of 25 youngsters re-. ceiving instruction .from .Mrs. Long in intermediate swimming, the morning.'of June 18-when he slipped' beneath the surface. The instructor's practice of keeping visual check on all'her. swimmers brought his absence 'to her notice .within 'seconds. She located him, in feet of water, jumped from the pool deck, pulled him to the surface, and called to instructor Danny French for- help. The two instructors placed the boy on the pool deck and called to two other instructors, who ordered all swimmers out of the pool and went to bring towels' and call a doctor and ambu- lance. With Mrs. .Long's assist- ance, French began mouth-to- mouth resucitation immediately and succeeded in reviving Paul within a few minutes. He was then wrapped in towels, to minimize shock, until the ar- rival of the 'ambulance. Paul was taken to Valley View Hospital. He was released after medical examination showed no complications from the acci- dent.. These awards bring -the total number given -in the 16-state midwestern Red Cross area to in 49 years and were rec- ommended .by the Pontotoc County Red Cross chapter. The Red Cross national awards com- mittee at Washington, D. C. approved the" award after con- sidering'eyewitnesses' and phy- sicians', statements on the merit of the life saving action." Mrs. Ralph Hayes, executive secre- tary of the local chapter, made the recommendation to Wash- ington. To qualify for a certificate of merit a person must have been trained in' Red Cross first aid, small craft or water safety and must have used this training in "saving or attempting to save the life of another in an act adjudged meritorious." All instructors--in the summer program here are Red' Cross trained.

Developments Are Seen In Next Few Days .WASHINGTON (AP) Officials said today the Cu- ban crisis may be approach- ing a peak of extreme dan- ;er. In any case, they are now convinced that a cli- mactic period opening in the next few days should bring developments of the utmost importance. They gave that assessment after making clear that the United States will use force if necessary to protect its reconnaissance Dlanes flying over Cuba, in the face of a new threat by Fidel Cas- tro to shoot them down. The force was not specified, but U.S. fighter planes would be al- most sure to meet any direct chal- lenge by the MIG fighters the So- viet Union has based in Cuba. Antiaircraft missile fire presum- ably would require a decision by the President whether to 'attack missile bases and put them out of action. Risk Destruction Castro warned in a note to the United Nations that any U.S. war- planes which "violate our air space" would risk destruction by Cuban antiaircraft. Presumably he referred to antiaircraft mis- siles recently installed in Cuba by the Soviet Union. Officials negotiations could still-, lead to a peaceful settlement..'" Those negotiations, conducted in part by President Kennedy and Premier -Khrushchev personally, are .concerned with removal of Soviet jet bombers from Cuba and with Khrushchev's unfulfilled promise to arrange for verifica- tion of the withdrawal of offensive weapons from the Caribbean is- land. Mikoyan Talks Soviet First Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan has been in Havana negotiating with Castro for two weeks.- He was expected to leave for home today, flying by way of New York so he could meet U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson and other'U.S. negoti- ators. OfficialsJrere say they have no real idea'what Mikoyan accom- plished with Castro toward fulfill- ment of Khrushchev's promises to get all offensive weapons out of Cuba under a U.N. verification system. Castro's belb'gerent assertion could have either of two purposes, as officials here'understood them. He could be striking a strong pub- lic pose to cover up concessions to Mikoyan on the international inspection issue. Or he could be intent on forcing- a fight with the United States. Will Continue Kennedy has announced that aerial surveillance and the naval arms blockade will be continued until other means of verification are provided. The Defense Department said last month, after the Cubans fired on a U.S, plane, that the United mandate from the Organization of American States to keep the Communist military threat in Cuba under constant sur- veillance.' It said it intended to do so, and; that if the Cubans at- tacked American aircraft the United States-would take "coun- ter action."
