Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 75 ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 30 PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Auaciattd Prcw (ff) PAGE ONE a town such as, say, Abilene, and double its popula- tion in a decade. In M doing you more than double the number of s c h o o 1 children, for you bring in a high proportion of young fami- lies. Add to this the sociological fact that the younger families tend to seek the city's perime- ter. Result: A scramble for new school rooms and. at the same time, some old school rooms in older parts of town running less than capacity. Abilene doubled last decade. But school enrollment, Supt. A. E. Wells reports, more than doubled jumping from in 1951-52 to in 1961-62. And the ever-expanding fring- es are filled with youngsters. (This year's enrollment will be in the vicinity of Wells expects. If General Dy- namics and Zachry Root fam- ilies all leave with the comple- tion soon of the Atlas projects, about students are ex- pected; if, as Wells suspects, many families stay, enrollment will be higher. Expectations for 1971-72: About 31.000.) Schools have sprouted as the town spreads, but even so it was last year before all class- es could go full time, and all temporary classes in churches could be moved into schools. For the moment the buildings have caught up with the chil- to new buildings, the expansions of old schools, 'he addition of "portable" class- rooms. The experiment with portable classrooms it something new for the school board'. Three of them are in use. Policy Is for the school to buy sites areas as de- velopment begins, before land values jump. Buildings are erected when settlement re- quires. (The board now has six sites for future schools.) The idea is to school the elementary youngster as close to home as possible. But matching children and class- rooms isn't always simple. The population moves about and kids grow up. Lamar School, 8th and Hick- ory, and Bonham School, Elm- wood West, summarize the con- struction problem. Lamar was once a large school but its district has "grown up" so that this year only 174 students are expected. Bonham. the town's biggest school, will have 970 or so pu- pils. Bonham bulges. But, looking at the Bonham district, of- ficials conclude it has reached or a nearing iis peak. The area is fully developed and chil- dren are advancing to junior and senior high. Before long some school now on the peri- meter may take over as t h e town's biggest. So instead of further perma- nent expansion of Bonham. the board has added two portable classrooms there. If not need- ed in the future they can be moved. The third portable room is at Ben Milam a "maturing" district which needed an old structure replaced. The portable rooms are ly an experiment, Wells said. They cost about each. For a few thousand more per room you can get buildings com- plete with cafetorium and other facilities. But three of the portable rooms are being tried and they may be the answer. Wells says, to temporary crowding. In the meantime, permanent construction continues. One new building, Jackson Elemen- tary on S. 32nd. is ready. Wood- son Elementary has a major expansion. Thirty two schools will be in use come next Tuesday.

The war year of 1942 has the istinction of having the driest only a trace of moisture recorded during the 31 ays of the month that year. This year's August to date has Ken the most arid in the past ecade. In 1952 nnlj .02 of an nch was recorded. The year of 938 provided the third driest Aug- ust, when .04 of an inch was re- corded. Weather Bureau officials report that the 75-year average rainfall during the month of August is 1.96 inches and 1.09 is considered normal for the period. Through Wednesday, officials said the total rainfall for the year had reached 16.45 inches, which is 1.54 inches above the normal reading of 14.91. WASHINGTON (AP) Pe pery. gay, controversial Feli Frankfurter, finally slowed dowr by ailing health and his 79 years resigned Wednesday from the Su preme Court. President Kennedy promptly named Secretary of La bor Arthur J. Goldberg as his sue cessor. Of Frankfurter, who hasn't been on the bench since he had a stroki April 5, Kennedy said: "Few judges have made as significan and lasting an impression upon the law. Few persons have made so important a contribution to our legal traditions and literature." And the President said of Gold berg, 54, a long-time labor union lawyer: "He has had an enviable record of accomplishment at thi bar. and his character, tempera Went and ability superbly qualify him for service on the court." Frankfurter's resignation could not possibly be labeled as unex pected. The stroke affected his speech, and for a time even his best friends weren't allowed to see him. Yet so great was Frankfurter's love for the Supreme Court that a friend sized up his feeling by saying.- "He'll be if he has to crawl." Frankfurter apparently decided even that would not be possible Tuesday night he wrote Kennedy fie was resigning from the court where he had served for 23 years A pedagogue to the end, he started off his letter declaring that "I hereby retire" at the close of the "pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C (Sec) 371 (B) 68 Stat. 12." The reference was to the section of the law pro- viding for retirement of Supreme members. The President, who obviously was expecting some such letter, .hen picked Goldberg as the new associate justice. He waited until his news con- rerence Wednesday to announce both decisions. First reports from Congress in- dicated regret that Frankfurter lad to leave the and ap- proval for the new appointment. Sample comments: Sen. Hugh Scott, R-Pa.. a mem- ber of the Judiciary Committee said Goldberg was a good appoint- ment, "No one could really replace Justice Frankfurter." Sen. Paul H. Douglas, D-I11., :alled Goldberg's selection "a magnificent appointment." "It does the administration ;rcat Douglas said. Sen. John 0. Pastore, D-R.I., wiled Goldberg as a man of 'great integrity, character and Related stories, Pg. 4-B courage. "A fine addition to the Pastore said. In many ways Frankfurter and the man who succeeds him are alike. Both are Jews. Both have im migrant backgrounds, both have fought for unpopular causes. But the resemblance can be stressed too much. Frankfurter's law experience was primarily as a teacher. A former student of his has said: "He's a terrific teacher When I was at Harvard he taught both seminars and large lecture courses. I took his course in pub- lic utilities, with maybe 125 in the class. Practically everyone took it. Yes, it may be true he wouk be better in a seminar, but remember this, Felix shines everywhere." Frankfurter was teaching at his beloved Harvard when, on Jan. 4 1939, he got a call from his old friend. Franklin D. Roosevelt. Years later Frankfurter was to recall the exquisite pleasure of that moment. There he was. in his BVD's, dressing for dinner, when FDR told him that the next day he would name him to the Supremi "tourt. The lively little man, born in Vienna on Nov. 15, 1882, hac come a long, long way. Arthur Joseph Goldberg was wrn on Aug. 8, 1908, on Chicago's West Side, the youngest of eight children. His father, who had emigrated from Russia in the 1890s, died when Arthur was only Tenaciously as Frankfurter lad before Goldberg ought his way up. But whereas frankfurter was always en- ranced with the academic side of law, Goldberg made his name hiefly as a labor lawyer.

The President's news confer- ence followed swiftly on dis- patches telling of new jockeying at Geneva test ban talks. The Soviet Union proposed an un- policed ban on all nuclear weap- ons blasts by next Jan. 1, and met with prompt rejection by the United States and Britain.

"But it is only a he add- ed a bit sadly. A highlight of the news confer- ence, carried nationwide on tele- vision and radio, was announce- ment of a historic shift in the Supreme Court. Felix Frankfurter, 79 and ill, has retired after 23 years service in which he carved his name on the nation's history. Kennedy chose Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg, 54, to succeed him. The conference ranged over many other topics, including the perennial subject of foreign aid, Fidel Castro's Cuba, the menace of unrestricted use of DDT and the question what is pornography.

Bone, dressed casually in grey- black slacks and a sports shirt, hugged her for more than a min- ute when she entered the room. Mrs. Bone refused to have her picture taken with her husband, because she said she did not wish to "involve" him. Bone a few minutes before had posed will- ingly outside the jail. After they embraced, they en- tered a room and spoke alone for more than 20 minutes. Mrs. Bone had said earlier that she would not hire a lawyer or sign a state- ment until after she had talked with her husband. Upon his arrival at Abilene po- lice headquarters at a.m., Bone said he had not hired a law- yer and he would not know wheth- er he was going to until after he had spoken to his wife.

The 66-20 vote adopted a recom- mendation of the Finance Com- mittee that the House-approved but highly controversial withhold- ing proposal be eliminated. The test settled a second major floor dispute on the legislation within a few hours. Earlier in the day, the Senate revised the expense account pro- vision in the bill by agreeing to (continue deductions on taxes for goodwill entertainment so long as a business purpose is served. The President's defeat on the withholding issue long had been discounted in advance by admin- jistration leaders in the Senate. (They were willing to dispose of this question without a recorded roll call but Republicans forced one. Kennedy had urged the dividend and interest income tax collection plan as the main new revenue feature of the bill to help pay for the business investment credit de- signed as an incentive to pur- chase the latest machinery and equipment. The Treasury has estimated that withholding would bring in up to S9C8 million a year in taxes now evaded in dividend and in- terest payments. It proposed the withholding at a 20 per cent rate. However, the proposal brought a storm of protest from savings institutions, corporations, savers and investors. Senators received thousands of letters of protest. Foes of the plan charged that it would work a hardship on retired couples living on dividends or in- terest, that it was unworkable and highly complex. Administration supporters said the plan would work as well as withholding on wages and salaries, which has been in effect, 20 years. As a substitute for the withhold- ing system, the Finance Commit- tee wrote into the bill a require- ment for much more extensive re- porting of such income payments. Savings institutions and com- panies would have to report, both :o the Treasury and to the in- dividual recipient, all payments of interest and of dividends in a year totalling more than The vote on the issue of busi- ness expense deductions followed three hours of argument over whether three words would open a loophole for scandalous abuses of expense account deductions. ironc riding was 165 points made >y Keith Streater of Hamilton.
