Tyler Miller, president of Madison College, to the Stale office of Civil, involves the evaluation of some 33 limestone buildings on the campus. The majority of U>e campus buildings, most of program, was begun last November. Dr. William Mengebier, professor of Biology, and Dr, John C. Wells, professor of Physics, have been appointed by Miller as co-chairmen of a Madison College faculty-administration Civil Defence committee. Rockingham County Civil De-fi'iise Coordinator Joe W. Miller is expecting an early report on Frondlzi Is Asked To Resign Argentine Navy Says Resignation Only Answer To Crisis BUENOS AIRES (AP)-Tho Navy publicly called on President Arturo Frondizi Sunday night to resign immediately as the best solution to Argentina's worst political-military crisis in seven years. Then Army Gen. Pedro Aram-buru, venerated leader called out of retirement in an attempt to mediate the crisis, told the 21 million Argentines they face the peril of civil war if the crisis is nut solved quickly. He urged j national effort to save the situation and called on opposing forces to end their strife. Provisional President Aramburu, who played a key role in ousting Peron in J95.5, served as provisional president until Frondizi was elected three years later. The navy demands and Aram-buru's warning came after Fron-dizi, fighting desperately to save his four-year regime, patched together a new cabinet he hoped would satisfy his foes. But his efforts appeared to be to no avail. His opponents insisted anew that his resignation is the only way to end the crisis resulting from last week's landslide election victoiies by followers of exiled dictator Juan D. Peron. Official Communique The navy, .spearheading the opposition, made its declaration against Frondizi m an official communique. Frondizi has fledged that nothing will make lim quit. The communique was issued shortly before Aramburu went on radio and television and warned in a 15-minute speech that "the republic is in danger . . . and many fear all is lost." As ArambiUTJ spoke, security units reinforced strategic points in this capital city in an obvious move to safeguard against disorders. Calling on the country to support his mediation efforts, Aramburu said, "This is the last chance to achieve a fundamental solution." He urgca all opposing factions to forget their grievances and' unite in seeking a solution. To Report Again The general said he was continuing his work and would report to the nation again before Monday midnight. A Frondizi aide said the new cabinet will be sworn in Monday at Casa Rosada, the executive house. The eight-man cabinet includes three members of Frondizi's intransigent Radical party, two Christian Democrats and two independents. The political affiliation of the eighth member was not disclosed. While the nation's military leaders conferred during the day, Frondizi met with politicians and retired military figures, apparently to round out the cabinet.

The American secretary will be accompanied by special assistant Charles E, Bohlen, Assistant Secretary of State Foy D. Koliler and .Ambassador to Moscow Llewellyn Thompson. Kohler met for two hours Sunday with the Soviet Union's Vladimir S. Semyenov to lay the groundwork for Rusk and Gromyko. The diplomatic maneuvering on Berlin took place as the 17-nation disarmament conference entered (he third week of its negotiations. The delegates were deadlocked on major issues confronting Ihcin but far from downhearted. Many See Chance Many professed to see a chance for attaining positive arms control measures. They conceded, however, that even first steps, largely involving pledges, might t.'ike months, while sweeping measures to eradicate the world's arms race could require years of exjiert study and conference bargaining. There was even some thought that the present conference-with the hoped for addition of France- might continue its work on a permanent basis. The delegations would be led by men of ambassadorial rank, with foreign ministers and even heads of government showing up periodically when critical issues were involved. Under Rusk's leadership the U.S. delegation is following a policy of patient diplomacy on 1.5er-lin, general disarmament and suspension of nuclear weapons tests. RuralRhythmCampaignGimmick MONTGOMEKV, Ala. 'AP' -There's a run on guitars and fiddles in Alabama these days- the candidates are out campaign-iijg agahi. Rural riiythm-and other gimmicks-have become an jilmost indispensable part of the business of getting voles 'for the past decade and a half. And it sure isn't any less true this year. without exception, the candidates for governor are using something besides their knowledge of governmental problems to draw the crowds. From the standpoint of volume, former Gov. James E. Folsom, running for the May 1 Democratic nominatiiMi tor an unprecedented third term, outdoes 'eni all. He sings, lus pretty wife joins in with a solo, too, and sometimes the colorful (i-fool-U candidate takes out his false teeth. Can you think of a better way to gel a laugh? Folsom, who started tlie iiiusic-with-your-politics trend when he was elected the first time in 1946, still has some of his original string-band musicians witli him. Rivals Musical Less playful Init just as musical aie rival candidates Eugene Connor, Ryan deGraffenried, MacDonald Gallion and George Wallace. They, too, travel with mountain music, all or part of the time. Gallion carries around a closed- circuit television network-so the voters can see themselves shaking hands with the attorney general.

Real 'Payload' When he stojis, the gadget rises to an upright posilion, red lights flash-and the gooti peoiile are invited to contribute lo help pay campaign expenses, Farish calls it the "payload." Folsom also solicits funds from his audiences, using a "ham sack -you j)ut in the liain and we'll grind it up and you'll gel the gravy." European Exiremlsfs Warned By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) -French troops and Secret Army Organization extremists fought Sunday for control of Oran in a savage battle that lasted into the night. The French government warned Algeria's rebcllioius Europeans to accspt peace with the Moslems or face the opposition of the entire world. Infuriated European settler.s, desperately opposing Algerian dopendcnce, 'olocked off midtown Oran-Algeria's second city-with makeshift barricades and defied French military police with a hail of bullets from rifles, pistols and submachine guns. Flares Again The fighting died down, hut flared again after two French planes made !ow passes over the area, firing hursts from hca\y machine guns.

At one point in the day's figlil-ing secret army commandos sought to block B convoy of tanks with parked cars.
