SUNDAY lOe Teacher Pay Session Set By DAVE CHEAVENS AUSTIN, Feb, 15 (/P—A special session to increase teachers pay, find money to finance the raises, and to crack down harder on Communists was set definitely today for March 15-Gov. Shivers said he would submit specific proposals for what he called “replacement taxes” to finance a compromise S402 a year «alary boost for teachers. Shivers said he thought it would be the joint responsibility of the governor and the legislature to solve the financial problem. If the lawmakers didn’t like his ideas, he «aid, he hoped they w'ould find another solution. Get Job Done The chief objective would be Jo “get the job done,” Shivers said. He was not ready to say what kind of tax proposal he would make. The governor explained that If the Supreme Court had upheld Texas’ gas gathering tax, no more money would have been needed. Shivers emphasized he would submit Communist-control legislation, including a death penalty provision, but he was not sure at what point In the session. Special sessions may not consider any topics except those offered by the governor. He emphasized that he did not favor “Lining Communists up against a wall and shooting them.’’ He would like to have Communists outlawed in Texas by a statute providing penalties up to and including death, but only on trial by jury, conviction and setting of punishment by the jury upon “the seriousness of the crime,” Reds for Revolt Communists advocate overthrow of the government by revolution, not plebiscite, Shivers said. The Constitution provides for a change in the form of government by ballot. Advocating the overthrow of government by the communist's well-known plan, the governor w ent on, “is a crime as bad or w'orse than murder.” Other topics mentioned by the governor for probably subinis.'ricn include more money for the prLson system, the School for the Deaf, the M.D. Anderson Hospital and Dental School at Houston, and Southwestern Medical at Dallas. He said he did not yet know how much might be recommended for them. Shivers said he would be unable to go with a group of governors to Korea in late March because of the conflict with the special session dates. The session will work on a teacher pay raise compromise worked out by a committee of lawmakers, teachers and school board members. The last Legislature voted a $600 pay raise but failed to vote money to finance it. -The 15 Freight Cars Derailed at Brazos BRAZOS. Feb, 15 L4»'—Fifteen | Spring last night and jailed.

Duval Jury Orders Parr To Testify SAN DIEGO, Feb. 15 (if) Duval County grand jury subpoenaed George Parr today to testify in its Investigation of use of school district money. The South Texas nolitical boss was asked to appear Wednesday at 2 p.m. Atty. Gen, Ben Shepperd has asked dismissal of the grand jury on grounds seven of its members are tied in w'ith Parr and therefore can’t do an impartial job. Shepperd returned to Parr’s bailiwick today to prepare for this week’s court battles. He issued a statement tonight appealing to the people of Duval County ‘‘to grasp the opportunity” to ‘‘restore and maintain honesty in public office,” A subpoena to Parr was announced by Dist. Atty. Raeburn Norris as the grand jury ended another day of hearing witnesses. Wide Rumors Parr had been widely rumored on a trip to Washington and New York over the weekend. The bespectacled, stocky millionaire was reported back in Duval County although he could not be reached except by Intimates. The district attorney also announced subpoenaing of D.C. Chapa, who resigned last week as tax assessor-collector of the Benavides Independent School District; Monroe Wiedekehr, a rancher; and Eusebio Carrillo Jr. Carrillo had been granted immunity by Judge Arthur Klein of Brownsville, imported judge who issued an order to safeguard and keep Intact Duval County and school district records. Asked about the fact Carrillo had been granted immunity by Klein, at Shepperd’s request. Norris said: ‘‘I don’t see eye to eye with the attorney general. I have never granted anyone immunity and don't intend to.” Witnesses Heard Witnesses heard today were B.F.

TO BIG 4 Molotov Offers 'Modifications' By DANIEL DE LUCE BERLIN. Feb. 15 (JV-Russia’s V. M. Molotov tonight offered “modifications” of the Soviet proposal for a European security system. But he clung to demands that the European army must be banned, Germany neutralized and American troops sent home. Molotov fought a four-hour running word battle with the Western ministers at the Berlin Big Four conference in an effort to sell his plan as securing “Europe for the Europeans.” France’s Georges Bidault and Britain’s Anthony Eden charged the Soviet plan would outlaw the North Atlantic Alliance as a keystone of Western defense. They said they would never agree to this. .Molotov retorted ‘‘The collective security treaty is an alternative project against the EDC (European Defense Community). The EDC is aimed at a rebirth of German militarism.” ‘‘It has been said the collective «ecurity treaty is aimed against NATO. Let’s study this question. For More About Big 4, See Pg. 8B let’s find out where and how this treaty is directed against any other treaty.” Trying to pin Molotov down, Bidault asked “Isn’t the treaty incompatible with NATO? What is your answer?” Molotov .snapped “I propose we adjourn.” Soviet Press Chief Leonid F. Ilychev confirmed later tonight that Molotov never answered Bi-dault’s question. A French briefing officer had said earlier that Molotov replied “It is not against NATO.” Western officials viewed the Russian minister’s tactics as aimed at dragging them into another blind alley debate for Red propaganda purposes. These officials made clear they want no further futile argument on Germany and European security —problems wherein Molotov has sought to clinch Soviet domination on the European continent. funds were kept; Jesus Garza, former trustee of the school district: Pedro Trevino, operator of a San Diego lumber yard; and Casme Leal, who had done electrical work for the school district. Federal and state men continued today to study county and school district records. They were reported handicapped by the absence of several county officials who were said to be ill. These included county auditor C.T. Stansell, Treasurer F. Saenz Jr., and Clerk A. Garcia Jr. A Department of Public Safety handwriting expert, “Speedy” Martin. joined the staff of state auditor’s men here today. Permanent Injunction Up for action in district court this week are Shepperd’s request for a permanent injunction against destruction or concealment of county or Benavides school district records, and his request for dismissal of the grand jury. In his message to the people of Duval County, which Shepperd’s men distributed to all area newspapers and reporters on duty here, the attorney general said: “No matter what legal steps may be taken to end boss rule in Duval County only the sustained, fearless vigilance of an awakened citizenry can effectively restore and maintain honesty in public office.” He urged citizens to attend county commissioners and school board meetings, “scrutinize actions” by tho.se bodies, insist that ¿Public records “be open to public view,” and participate actively in governmental and voters groups affairs. DETROIT. Feb, 15 iiP>-Death today claimed an 8-months-old girl who had spent the last two nights in an automobile with her parents, two brothers, a sister and two dogs. The mother said the child “looked sick” while she was preparing a family breakfast of peanut butter sandwiches and tea in the car. The parents rushed her to a police station, then to a hospital. She was dead upon arrival. Patrolman Ardell Lenze said the child appeared to have died of suffocation in blankets piled on the rear seat of the car. A coroner’s inquest tomorrow will determine whether an autopsy is required. Drove Taxi The child was Penelope Bryant, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willis P. Bryant, who said they returned to Detroit from Chicago two weeks ago. There, Bryant said, he drove a taxi and worked as a parking lot attendant. Bryant said they came back because they heard his wife’s mother, Mrs. Leroy Neisch, was ill. But he said the mother, from whom his wife is estranged, refused to talk to them when they telephoned. Neisch, who is president of the University of Michigan Club of Detroit, said he and his wife had sent the Bryants money for years but finally stopped because Bryant refused to work.” In Hotel Room Bryant said he had been working as a part-time parking lot attendant since his return to Detroit an that the family was forced out of a hotel room two days ago. The manager said they were put out because the Health Department complained there were too many in the family for one room. Bryant said he was low on funds and hadn't been able to find anywhere else to house his family, so they had stayed In the car the last tw'o nights. N. W.

This w’as revealed at a Monday night meeting of the Citizens Advisory Committee on future building for Abilene Schools, Chairman Sam Hill said. In addition. Hill said, another sub - committee reporting Monday night disclosed the need for additional storage space at all local schools, even the new ones. The committee, headed by Bob Glew, visited all present school plants here in the survey before making the report Monday night. The anticipated influx of children was revealed In a report by another committee on future population trends, headed by Ralph HooIls. The committee is still in the process of collecting information on United States, Texas, and local population trends. The findings will be used to project an estimate of how many students will be in Abilene schools in future years.

The secretary denied any “rift“ made about the city to have a population of about 55,000 people. The figures also show that less than a third of these belong to any church of any denomination in Abilene. Only 500 Active Further, the Fort Worth minister' said, the report of Uie First Bap-i tist Church of Abilene to the convention showed about 500 members were active workers in the church. Of these he pared a hundred, leaving 400 active w'orkers. The same church report showed that only 80 conversions were recorded for the last convention year, which means that it took about 50 people to lead one person to Christ in the First Baptist Church of Abilene, he said. Christ founded the church, he said, to lead people to redemption and salvation, and a church that Christ builds is an agresslve. evangelistic, soul w'inning church.

At present, the law stipulates that the government must under-WTite the nation's farmers by supporting farm prices at 90 per cent of parity on basic crops. Parity is a formula designed to give farmers a fair price for their crops in relation to the prices of things they buy. Under the “flexible” system, the government would apply high price crops in time of scarcity to encourage production, and gradually lower them in time of abundance to discourage overproduction.
