If the budget is adopted un- changed, it would mean a property tax levy increase of to-a total of for schools. If no increases for other city departments are approved by the city council (which seems unlike- the city tax rate could remain about the same for 1960 as for 1959. The city can raise more this year than last without increasing the rate because of a increase in assess- ment. The present school budget, based on the 1959 assessment, would mean an estimated tax rate of per val- uation. Actually, this total will be somewhat less, be- cause two districts in the town of Grand Chute have been annexed to Appleton for school purposes and pay a proportionate share of the school tax. In 1959, Grand Chute paid to Ap- pleton for school purposes. Last 'year, the city tax rate for schools was approximate- ly per not in- cluding the town of Grand Chute districts.

President Eisenhower returned to his old home town today with a nostalgic look at the past and a warning for the potentially explosive world of the future. "The world must learn to work Eisenhower "or finally it will not work at all." This was a sort of pre-birthday party for the president. He will be 69 tomorrow. Today he came back to Abilene, the town in which he grew up, to take part in ground breaking ceremonies for the Eisen- hower presidential library. This will be the final resting place for Eisenhower's mili- tary and presidential papers. Refers to Early Life The president began with a look at the early life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower. 'We did not then know the term 'world he said. "Life was peaceful, se- rene, Today, th'e president said, the entire world is showing tremendous growth. "Burdensome surpluses even those of dis- the president told an audience very conscious of wheat surpluses. "Indeed the world may then be threatened with very real food, energy, min- erals. Enlarged demand throughout the world will have to be met by new meth- ods, and .more effective use of resources everywhere." And when would this prob- lem come? "Within the lifetime of many of you here the global population will reach five bil- Eisenhower said. "You must now help determine how such a vast humanity may, in freedom, achieve stupen- dous increases in economic output, and increase the sum of human happiness on this earth. Ike Is Optimistic "The task ahead is not for the faint-hearted." Eisenhower was optimistic, even while he was adding up the problems the world must face.

Mail Theft Gang Held By Police in Germany Frankfurt, Germany West 'German police today an- nounced the arrest of a gang specializing in stealing U. S. mail pouches from commer- cial planes at the Frankfurt airport. One of the pouches contain- ed a shipment of raw diamonds worth about 000. Detectives said 651 raw diamonds and an assortment of less valuable stones have been recovered. The six gang members, aged from 23 to 34, stole mail pouches between March 1 and June 4, police said. Besides the diamonds, the gang also are accused of stealing about in U. S. currency from letters. Jobs Decline In September, Report Shows Steel Strike and Seasonal Drop Major Factors Washington National employment fell off seasonal- ly by to in September. This drop was ex- pected because of the return of temporarily employed stu- dents to school. Unemployment fell by 000 to also primarily due to the job seeking young- sters leaving Jhejabor market to resume classes. The idle figure, still over three million, raised the pros pect that Sec. of Labor Jame: P. Mitchell may have to eat his hat on the labor depart- ment building steps. Mitchell has pledged to do just that if the October idle figure was above three mil- Lion. Steel Layoffs Seymour Wolfbein, deputy assistant secretary of labor said that with the steel strike still continuing the unemploy- ment total for October prob- ably will exceed three million. Wolfbein said that layoffs due to the steel strike had topped in early Octo- ber, in addition to the striking Steelworkers. He said that "the rate of lay- offs due to the steel strike, formerly a week, now has stepped up to a week and may jump soon. Wolfbein told a news confer- ence that the wage loss to steel strikers and others laid off because of the steel strike has mounted to million through the first week of Octo- ber. He said the hardest hit states in order, are Pennsyl- vania, Ohio and Indiana. The decline in both employ- ment and unemployment in September, although season- ally expected because of the return of students to school from the labor market, was accentuated by the steel strike effects. September employment, at was high- er than a year ago. Unem- ployment at was 000 less than a year ago. British Investigate Crash of Atom Bomber London The govern- ment today opened an inquiry into the crash of a super se- cret British atom bomber with an American civilian at the controls.

'You know that, the free na-82-nation general assembly. tions of the world have the capacity and can develop the will to overcome together the powerful, perplexing forces which for thousands of years have yielded hatred, distrust, poverty."

A few delegates tried to start a compromise switch to Yugoslavia, but this failed to gain momentum. It was then agreed to drop the balloting to permit consultation among U.N. diplomats. The vote on the twenty-fifth and final ballot was 43 for Poland and 36 for Turkey. This represented only a slight shift from yesterday and was exactly the same as the four- teenth ballot, which opened this morning's session. No Major Switch The election of Poland to the economic and social coun- cil yesterday failed to pro- duce the major switch which some western diplomats ex- pected. These delegates had believed that many countries would not feel like supporting Poland for seats in two-maj- or U.N. councils. In an attempt to head off any such switch, the. Soviet Union issued a statement urg- ing Poland's supporters to stand firm.

Nelson Signs Bill to Bar Discrimination In State Contracts Orion mis- a point 10 Madison Gov. Gay- The 76-foot rocket rose pon- derously from its launching pad. It accelerated rapidly and, after about 40 seconds, arched high in the sky and headed toward the northeast, spurting a brilliant tail of fire. A minute later it vanished in a cloud bank. If all went right, all four stages would ignite in about 13 minutes, sending the payload into space at speed of mile an hour. Second Shot of Day It was the second space shot of the day from the cape. Earlier, a B47 bomber launch- ed a 37-foot Bold sile, aiming it at miles in front of the Explorer VI "Paddlewheel" satellite.
