He is for the "right to work" proposal. He supports the elimination of small school districts when they become economically unfeasible.

A number of. per- sons were wounded or killed. The shooting shattered a quiet that had prevailed up to noon in Algeria after nearly two days of bloody clashes in the wake of a cease-fire proclaimed belwesn France and the Algerian nation- alists. The battle in Oran was the first open clash reported there be- tween French government forces and the Secret Army since the cease-fire. The Secret Army is determined to keep Algeria French. Phone System A new and expanded telephone system went into operation yes- terday at East Central State Col- lege, in readiness to serve the new buildings which'are beginning to sprout all over the campus. Western Electric technicians recently completed installation a new switchboard and dial equip- ment in Knight Hall; and the changeover was made during the noon hour Tuesday. All campus extension numbers have been changed, using three digits instead of two. The new set-up, except for the change of campus numbers, won't make much difference to anybody. But it provides faciilties for al- most indefinite expansion as needed, to serve the new con- struction. Six persons were directly af- fected by the change, however.

Argentine Chief Clings To His Job BUENOS AIRES (AP) strike call to two million workers raised new threats today to Ar- turo Frondizi's thin hold on the presidency of Argentina. The president, 53, was remain- ing in power as a result .of his agreement to split his Cabinet be- tween military men and civilians, while banning all political' activi- ties by followers of ex-dictator Juan p. Peron. The Peronists won sweeping victories in pro- vincial elections Sunday, but Frondizi by .decree has nullified the election of Peronist governors. Sixty-two, powerful unions called a 24-hour strike for Friday to pro- test cancellation of the Peronist victories.

And Heath notes that while all Step Gives New Urgency To Berlin Talks GENEVA (AP) Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko summoned Com- munist East Germany's top diplomat to Geneva today for consultation. This step gave fresh urgency to East- West talks on Berlin against the background of the 17- nation disarmament con- ference. The conference itself ad- dressed a special bid to Franee to abandon its bpy- cott of the Geneva meeting send a delegate to fill j the empty 18th chair. There was no indication that President de Gaulle would heed the appeal. He con- siders the meeting useless. On another front, disarmament experts of the United States, Brit- ain and the Soviet Union resumed three-power discussions of a nu- clear weapons test ban. Inform- ants said they failed to make any dent in the East-West dead- jlock over provisions for inspection to police the ban. They did agree to meet again Thursday. Pressure mounted' among the Ex-CIA Chief Says Nixon. Was Wrong WASHINGTON W. Dulles, former direc- tor of the Central Intelligence Agency, says Richard M. Nixon was in error when he charged that President Ken- nedy had been briefed during the 1960 campaign on Cuban invasion preparations. Dulles, said, however, he believed the charge con- tained in Nixon's new book, "Six the result of "an honest misunderstanding." Nixon contended Kennedy had been told the CIA was helping to train Cuban rebels for an invasion and had jeopardized the plan in campaign oratory. The White House denied this Tuesday, saying Kennedy knew nothing of the invasion prepara- tions until after he was elected and that Nixon's "account is ap- parently based on a misunder- standing." White House press secretary Pierre Salinger said Dulles had twice briefed Kennedy during the presidential race but that the briefings consisted mainly of a broad review of the world situ- uncommitted nations for a mora- torium on' nuclear weapons tests before the United States resumes testing in the atmosphere next month. City Okays Charter Revisions Ada voters Tuesday overwhelm- ingly endorsed a new city char- ter by a margin of 270 to 45. There was not a single box in the city where the proposition on the charter change failed to pass. Actually, there is little differ- ence between the new charter and the one under which the city has been governed since 1946. The 'most obvious change is to permit institution of a "stagger- ed" term system for the council.

George Atcheson, in charge of the U.S. Embassy in Chungking during the absence of Ambassa- dor Gauss, warned in August 194! that the possibility of some kinc of compromise between China anc Japan could not be completely disregarded. He said this was "because of anti-Western bias of the general- issimo, Madame Chiang and a widespread suspicion in Chinese government circles that Great Britain will not, after the crush- ing of Germany, devote her naval and other resources wholehearted- communication. Further he proposed close coop- eration in the use of space ships in weather forecasting. The message was read over Moscow Radio. Kennedy had proposed to Khrushchev that the two powers cooperate in various space pro- grams such as communications, the tracking of satellites, weather research and the measuring of the earth's magnetic field. The Soviet premier said it was "desirable to have an internation- al agreement" to bring closer cooperation in use of space ships and particularly in giving greater security to astronauts.' Khrushchev suggested the two nations get together in' launching observation rockets to the moon and planets. His letter said all countries should have equal opportunities for space exploration. Therefore, the Soviet government suggested a series of joint research ventures including: 1. Use of artificial earth satel- lites for a long distance commu- nications system. 2.
