Atwut 1,700 application cards have already been issued on request by the local Red Cross office, Mrs. Mattie Belle Newberry, executive secretary said. Deadline for their return will be Thursday, when scheduling begins for the one-week course. Six Instructors Metta Dean Smith, assistant professor of physical education at Abilene Christian College, will be in charge of this year’s lessons.

Classes will be given during the four weeks on five levels— beginner, intermediate, swimmer, junior and senior life saving. Certificates will be awarded at the completion of each. “We hope there will be no more than SO pupils for each class, but that depends on the number who come in,” Mrs. Newberry said. One Week of Lessons Each child will take lessons daily for one week. A new class will begin each week for four weeks. First two weeks of classes will be held in the VFW pool, last two in the American Legion pool.

He said they plan to organize an independent Methodist Church in Dallas and have already held their first service. .After staling the several points on which they based their decision to leave their posts, the brothers concluded their letter with this Victory Claims End; Front 'More Fluid' GUATEMALA, June 26 (AP)—The Gup.tomalan government, under attack for more than a week by invading insurgents, stopped making broad claims of victory today. Instead it told of heavy casualties on both sides, and admitted that the situation was “more fluid” than earlier in the week. That it was true there had been many casualties was indicated by the fact labor union members were furnishing blood for transfusions to the wounded here. For security reasons there j were several other develop- T^n ments that could not be published here or abroad under existing censorship regulations. However, the situation on the surface appeared surprisingly calm and government control appeared to be complete in the capital. The government began broadcasting detailed instructions to the people on what to do in case there should be a big air raid. Officials said such a raid was possible and urged the people to be calm, to hasten to the nearest place of safety and to stay indoors. Special instructions were given on how to put out fires from incendiary bombs. The Guatemalan High Command continued to claim that government troops were in control of the situation and had insurgent invaders in retreat everywhere. Ask Meeting WASHINGTON. June 26 (fL_TeH of the 21 American republics tonight called for an emergency meeting of foreign ministers July 7. probably in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil, to work out means of dealing with the Communist menace in Guatemala. The call for the conference, expected to be approved quickly by the Council of the Organization of American States at a session tentatively planned for 3 p.m. Monday, came as the war situation in Guatemala took a more serious turn. The bombings of Guatemala by rebel forces became more intensive. The boasts of Guatemala’s The situation in the capital ap- i pr^ Communist government that it peared to be calm and normal, but 1 would wipe out the invaders went officials said anything may happen unrealized. now. Embassies Crowded Persons seekmg poliiical asylum continued to crowd into foreign embassies here, with the gov'ern-ment making no ef/«t to sWp them.
