The disclosure came as U.S. Defense Secretary Robert S!

H was presumed the atomic demolition charges are in Wesl Germany, France has refused to permit the United States to store nuclear charges on its soil as! long >s it would not share control over them. Defense Factor The sources said the atomic demolition charges were only a relatively small part of the nu- clear warhead arsenal at the disposal of NATO forces Western Europe. to knocking out bridges, and filling in mountain passes through .which an enemy might' be advancing, the charges could be used to obliter- ate enemy obstacles. The United States would con- trol the use of the charges. A fallout, problem would ba negli-i gible, informants said. The number or power of the charges' was not disclosed. Atomic Mines West Gorman sources said eariier, that West Germany proposed sowing the Kasl-Wesl German frontier with atomic mines, but this was advanced only at, a meeting of military chiefs of staff preceding the NATO meeting. These presuma- bly a variation of the demolition charges. The use of the demolition charges was, reportedly dis- cussed at the ministerial ses- sioni which heard McNamara on the state of the nuclear force.

"Quick Casualties" McNamara told the council that, an interlocked system of Western defense .is already strong enough to inflict 100 mil- lion quick casualties on the So- viet Union. He said Ihe U.S. nuclear ar- senal in West Germany alone already packs an explosive punch times the blast which leveled Hiroshima, or about 100 million tons of TNT. President Charles de Gaulle remained unconvinced. He anc Secretary of State Dean Rusk met for the second time this week. While the agreed on Ihe dangers of nuclear proliferation there was no sign of De Gaulle's softening his opposition to U.S nuclear policy for Ihe alliance. Rusk and De Gaulle wenl deeper into the problem o. avoiding a spread of nuclear arms. Rusk said they concurrec that this danger has become more acute since the Rec Chinese exploded a bomb. The two agreed that no country which possesses nuclear arms would want to sec them dissem inaled.

Local Students Due Jobs In Anti-Poverty Program irogram. Approval is expected within three to six weeks. Under the plan designed for .he VISD, the Federal Govern- ment would provide all of which would be used to pay Ihe wages of the students partic- ipating, during the first six months of the program. No local expenditures would be involved, and the VISD's extent of partic- ipation would be limited to pro- viding buildings, equipment, utilities, supplies and the time and labor of personnel already employed by the school district. Harry Ulhoff, director of secondary personnel and admin- istrative services for the VISD, said the preliminary phase of the program would nol neces- sitate the hiring of any addi- tional personnel. "We think we can absorb the work with the [ram: The school Government, would run through June 30. Presumably i would Ihcn be renewed.

Edward De la Rosa, a con sultant for the Texas Educatio Agency who is studying th drop-out problem in Victoria said the project is "a goo start" in the campaign to hel sludenls stay in school.

Connor to be ecrelafy of commerce Wednes- ay and thereby sealed more olidly his friendly relations with industry. In his first designation of a Cabinet officer, Johnson an nounced that Luther H. Hodges s resigning as secretary ant hat the president of Merck t Co., Inc., Rahway, N.J. will sue ceed him. Connor, 50, a lawyer and ormer government official as well as a front-rank industrial st, told reporters: '.'I am an in lependent Democrat, or per laps a liberal businessman." He is a Roman Catholic. The President expressct 'deep regret" at Hodges' de 'arlure. The retiring secretary soon to be 67, said his resigna ion expressed his "desire and ong-lime plan to leave the Cab net by the end of Ihe four-year erni." He asked that the resignation K made effective by Jan. 20 which is inauguration day. The President, in his informal re marks, said he hoped the Cabi net post would change hands on Jan. 15 an apparent indica .ion of his wish for Senate con 'irmation of Connor. Second Resignation Hodges, former governor o North Carolina, is the secon member of the Cabinet team assembled by the lale Presiden John F. Kennedy lo resign. Rob- ert F. Kennedys quit as attorne general last summer to mak his successful Senate race. Tha job has not been filled. Meanwhile, Cabinet specula tion quickened in Washingto that Secretary of. the Treasur Douglas Dillon may be the thir to go. Administraion source have reported that Dillon, 55, Republican and former invesi ment banker, is planning t leave within a few months. Well pleased with its first re- sults on clearing of large tracts of vacant property, the city now has launched a pilot pro- ;rarn to eliminate overhanging jecs which create something of traffic nuisance. First letters have been mailed to 25 persons in a selected area requesting the properly owners :o trim trees to a minimum leight of 11 feel above streets. Owners can have the overhang- ng trees trimmed by a nursery, man, do the work themselves, or leave them for cily park crews to trim, according lo the letter.

'SPITTING SNOW By TOE ASSOCIATED TRESS A slow norther, sliding out of Rocky Mountain and Great peeled Plains blizzards, howled into the Texas Panhandle Wednes- day night. The hesilanl f r o n I arrived hours-late, but nonetheless with a bitter chill. Cold wave warnings con- tinued for the Panhandle-Plains country and temperatures were expected in the upper 20s early Thursday as far south as the Dallas-Fort Worth area... Light, 'dry snow accompanied the norther lato at Borger, along with blustery winds and a temperature of 15 degrees at 10 p.m.- At the same time, Pampa had .what a police dispatcher called "spilling snow" and high winds.

"The em-jhasis would be on the advisory services for several government agencies. Hodges had a row with the Business Council in 1961, a few months afler he took office, over its exclusivity and secrecy.
