A couple of students enter the school at right. The United Federation of Teachers, bargaining agent for New York's public school instructors, voted the walkout. [AP Teachers In New York End Strike NEW YORK thou- sands of public school teachers who struck Wednesday for higher pay returned to their classrooms today in response to a court order and -union instructions. Also back at their desks were the city's one million public school children, some of whom had run riot during the walkout for lack of classroom supervision. Normal Operation of the school system appeared virtually normal in spot checks after the starting bells had clanged. Seward Park High School, for instance, one of two-dozen schools completely closed Wednesday, said 115 of its 120 teachers report- ed for duty. The few absences were consid- ered normal. The Board of Edu- cation said an average of per cent of the teachers in the school system are absent any given day because of illness or other rea- sons. Outcome Unsure Cuba Will Free Ransomed Group HAVANA sick or .wounded captives of the Bay of Pigs invasion are to be released' Saturday following- the Negotiations will continue for the ransoming of more of the invasion prisoners. A spokesman for the committee who negotiated the release of the first group said they would be flown to Miami on Saturday with two doctors accompanying' them. Their release was arranged by a committee of four exiles who came here Tuesday from the United States after a military tribunal found the invaders guilty of treason and set ransoms on their heads ranging from to Other- The outcome of the strike still inconclusive. How far the city will go in meet- ing the teachers' pay demands has not been settled. Nor was it determined what ac- tion, if any, will be taken under the state's Condon-Wadlin law which provides for dismissal public employes who strike.

But by that time teach- ers were herding the boys into the school. Similar efforts were needed at some other schools to get pupils back. Union leaders counted on early- morning radio news broadcasts to carry the back-to-work 'call to the teachers. They had been instruct- ed to listen carefully to the pro. grams for strike developments. Decision The decision to end the strike was announced at a.m. aftei s seven-hour meeting of the ex- ecutive board of the AFL-CIO United Federation of Teachers.

S. Steel Co. which touched off the steel price rise. Sources close to the .situation acknowledged that as an angered administration held a top level White House conference on the increase. There was no sign of im- mediate action from that meeting. President Kennedy, who had already delivered a hot blast at the industry's action, sat in on the White House session for a time. "Big Steel" -started the round of price rises Tuesday night with a boost of a ton, and the other big pro- ducers quickly fell in line. Informed sources said antitrust action aimed at the Reservists Get Early Date To Return Home WASHINGTON (AP) More than National Guardsmen and Reservists- will go marching home from the cold war in August unless the 'Communists raise a new hot war threat. This will-clip as much as two months from the year they could lave been kept in uniform under a special act authorizing their call to duty at the height of the Berlin crisis last fall. But President Kennedy, in an- nouncing plans for the August re- ease, stressed Wednesday, that these Army, Navy and Air Force units "will remain available, in a new and heightened state of combat readiness, if a new crisis should arise." The decision to demobilize the Guard and Reserve does not stem Yom any marked change in the nternational situation which con- industry giant was one of the "several avenues" of action to which Atty. Gen. Robert F. Ken- nedy referred last night. But they emphasized that stud- ies of what, action the department might take were still in the early stages. The attorney general, in an in- interview, had said the depart- ment was "already taking action" but declined to discuss details. Asked whether court suits ac- tually were in preparation, a well- placed source said today: "We ire very active, but it would be a little premature to dis- close what action we might take." It was understood that govern- ment attorneys were considering whether they might move against U.S. Steel under Section 1 or Sec- tion 2 of the Sherman Antitrust Act. Section 1 prohibits price fix- ing and Section 2 is aimed at monopoly control. "In this case, there 'are over- tones of said-one- govern- ment lawyer. The attorney general indicated Wednesday night His department was looking at Ih'e steel price in- crease situation in .at least three aspects: 1. Possible antitrust action. 2. A 1951 consent order'signed by major steel companies after the Federal Trade Commission ac- cused them of unfair pricing prac- tices. The firms consented to re- frain from engaging in such prac- tices in the future, although they did not admit having engaged in them in the past. 3. An examination of whether present antitrust laws are ade- quate. Andrew T. Hatcher, assistant White House press secretary, had nothing to say on whether there are any concrete reasons for the White .House to believe there might be a cancellation of the price boost. But in something of an. under- statement of Kennedy's views, Hatcher told 'reporters: "I think it, is safe to say he would like steel prices to remain as they were when the steel con- tract was signed." Four Cabinet members sat in on the conference at the White House. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy was there. So were Secretary of De- fense Robert S. McNamara, Sec- retary of. Labor Arthur J. Gold- berg, Secretary of Commerce Lu- ther H. Hodges. Undersecretary of the Treasury Henry Chairman Walter' Heller of the Council of Economic Advisers, and Paul Rand Dixon of the Federal Trade Commission. Hatcher came'out with, a flat "no" when'he was asked if. the matter of collusion came up. He i said it way just in the i conferees went into the sudden- ness .with which other companies fell in line with the U.S. Steel price rise. Hatcher said meeting was more a general discussion of the steel price situation than one which got into 'specifics. As to whether any direct action can be expected shortly, Ada Chamber Of Commerce Picks Officers CARROLL C. COLLIER Carroll C. Collier, banker, was elected the new president of the Ada Chamber of Commerce in Wednesday's organizational meet- ing of the new board of directors. Collier succeeds Frank Dicus in the ranking office. Other, officers include: Orval Price, first vice Dr. Charles F. Spencer, second vice president: and, Harold Harp, treasurer. Collier has been associated with the Oklahoma State Bank for 25 years, and has been a vice presi- dent and director since 1951. He has served before as a director Allies Reject Bid For Jest Moratorium GENEVA Soviet Un- ion today proposed an unpoliccd moratorium on nuclear weapons tests. The United States and Brit- ain immediately turned down the proposal. The two Western powers told the 17-nat.ion general disarmament conference they could not' trust the Soviet Union to observe such a moratorium. Decision Attacked Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin charged the American plan to resume atmos- pheric nuclear tests in mid-Pacific later this month is increasing in- ternational tension, The .American decision to lest again came under heavy fire. Canada and Mexico were among those expressing regret. The smaller countries asked the big nuclear nations to seek a com- promise OP the nuclear testing is- sue. They said, any new explosions now would damage the chances ol this conference ever attaining any fruitful claim which Zorin also picked up.

S. industry. He threw him- self into the fight with a charge that big steel showed ruthless disregard of the pub- lic by raising prices. t. i. Kennedy launched the attack Wednesday at a news conference in which he de- nounced U. S. Steel Corp. and fellow steel price hikers with the strongest language he has leveled at anyone or anything since becoming president. His voice rising, his forefinger poking for emphasis, Kennedy said steel price boosters had displayed "utter contempt for the interests of 185 million Ameri- cans." He said their "pursuit of private power and profit exceeds their sense of pub- Valley View Adds Training Course For 'Scrub Nurses' By W. L.

Kennedy made important announcements at his meet- ing with newsmen: Barring serious deterioration of the international situation, he said, the Reservists and National Guardsmen called to ac- tive duty last year will be allowed to return home in August.

He obviously had at least the antitrust laws in mind. Congressional committees will inquire into the need for new laws, he said. Throughout the steel negotia- tions, Kennedy said, his adminis- tration sought no commitments from the companies or union. He and Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg, he insisted, emphasized the government's only interest was obtaining an agreement that would not precipitate a price in-' crease. Not only is there no justifica-i tion for an increase, Kennedy as-1 serted, but labor costs per ton of steel can be expected to decline in the next year. Industry earn- ings have been high, he said, yet "a few gigantic corporations have decided to increase prices in ruth- less disregard of their public re- sponsibilities." When not unloading wrath on the steelmakers, Kennedy had this to say on other subjects: forthcoming re- lease of men called to duty at the height of the Berlin emergen- cy does not reflect a change in the international situation which continues to have many dangers (Continued on Page Two) Senator Harris Plans Second Visit To Ada Senator Fred R.
