(Continuert from Paze Oni^ Peking belligerently says it is ready for a private meeting to talk things over. Peking wants a backdown from Khrushchev, an admission that he has been wrong and has been an arrant "revisionist" all along. The Communist^ Chinese will not get any suchicomm thing. ' Mrs Hplp Mao Tze-tung has had a meeting with the Soviet ambassador in Peking. Sitting in on the meeting were other high-ranking Chinese Reds, including Wu Hsiu-chuan, the Central Committee member who was subjected to boos and catcalls in the East Berlin meeting of world Communists in January. It seems reasonable to conclude that they were talking about arrangements for a high-level Krem-in-Peking meeting and the terms for it.

Labarge praised the staff at Hyde for assistance to him after his loss of a leg and his subsequent treatment and return to full employment. Dr. John J. Lorentz, medical director of the society, told a story about a young man who had been admitted as  mentally re^ tarded and physically handicap' ped at the age of 18.

They would serve only in some 200 counties, mainly in five Southern states, in which less than 15 per cent of any racial group is registered to vote. Officials described the bid for interim referees as important because in terms of time Negroes might be able to register and vote immediately rather than in two or three years. Other Requests Kennedy had two other requests, applicable only in federal elections. One was for a specific ban on the application of different tests and standards to different people. The other was for a declaration J that anyone with a sixth grade education is presumed to be literate. Since a presumption could be challenged, this latter proposal would be less stringent than a provision of a literacy test bill that fell by the wayside in the last Congress. Last year's measure would have made it a rule of federal law that anyone who passed the sixth grade was literate for voting purposes. While he was at it, Kennedy urged every remaining state legislature to join the 13 which have ratified the proposed 24th Amendment to the Constitution which would outlaw the payment of poll taxes as a requirement for voting. Kennedy had no legislation to recommend in the realm of racial discrimination in employment. But he held a sort of club over labor unions accused of discrimination, saying he hoped administrative ways and means: Mrs. Josephine Hanson, Mrs. Pauline Rumery and Mrs. Arlene Freeman, refreshments; Brendan Twomey, Ally. .John Harvey and Mrs. Eleanor Stackpole. public relations and campaign: and Atly.

Two Cars Collide On Biddeford Street Two Biddeford residents es caped injury this morning when their cars collided on Cleaves street. A 1958 sedan driven by Raoul C. Laflamme, 53, of 474 Alfred street, and a 1956 sedan operated by John Edward Laforge, 22, of 141 Cleaves street crashed at approximately 8 a. m., today. At press time there were no estimates of damage. Robbery Now Self-Service KANSAS CITY, Mo. Wl - A bandit showed a pistol to clerk Lloyd A. Anderson Wednesday night and demanded the money in the liquor store's cash register. "Get it yourself," Anderson retorted. "This is a self-service stoic." The holdup man helped himself. The loss hasn't been determined. Biddeford (Continued from Pa*: One) felt Delage's bid, while actually not the lowest, was in effect the best bid due to willingness on hia part to supply all new buses-John A. Snell, chief of the bureau of vocational education, State Department of Education, addressed the board on the subject of vocational training at the high school level. Snell reported that ;. the state would reimburse one ; half the teachers salary in a vocational or "trade school" system. Many questions were put to Snell by board members. They discussed the possibility of a modified "on the job training" system and Snell gave a lengthy report on pending legislation on ar~ ea vocational training schools. He addressed the group on the request of Superintendent Raymond Kenneally as part of the board's delving into the subject of a possible addition of a vocational training course that might be integrated into the present high school system. Snell pointed out that Kennebunk has an "on the job training" program at present, and in his opinion it is a highly successful venture. He pointed out that three other communities in the state have a similar plan and added he felt that next fall will see many more schools getting into the plan. Learns Trade ' The "on the job training" plan, in the most cases, consists' of the student putting in three hours at the high school studying basic courses such as English and mathematics plus an allied subject which pertains to whatever field they are preparing for. The student then works for at least three hours a day in an actual plant, learning a trade. Snell pointed out this system is often warmly welcomed by industry but he warned the board that the system also carries many administrative headaches and is not a plan to jump into without serious reflection on all sides of the question. Snell distributed' literature a-mong the board members that pertained to the legislative bills that would create area vocational schools. -'- In other action Kenneally reported that he had awarded three contracts for paper to be used in the school system. The board had previously instructed him to prepare the bids and to use his dis-cression on the awarding of the contracts. Kenneally said that the /paper was divided into three classes and the. successful bidders included, Cascade Paper company, unit number one, $2,361.35; Milton Bradley, unit number two, $297.44 Gledhill Bros., unit number/three, $340.83. Kenneally said that the savings to the school system by purchasing in this manner, as opposed to the previous system of purchasing in comparatively small lots when needed, amounts to $1, 285. A', letter from' the- Biddeford Teachers association salary committee that requested an informal meeting with the board was read. The board instructed Kenneally to make arrangements for the meeting on a night that the board has a light agenda. A report by Fire Chief Arthur King and City Electrical Inspector Samuel Lacerte on an inspection tour of the Washington street, Emery and Junior High schools was read. Kenneally reported that the few faults found have either I been corrected or are in the pro-[cess of being repaired. - i away Alcatraz, a prison of bne isort of another since 1858. It's too 'costly to restore. Among 38 cons moved off the rock Tuesday was Mickey Cohen, Los Angeles racketeer doing time for income tax evasion. They sent him to Atlanta. The prison is expected to be empty by July 1. PARKING? NO PROBLEM-Here's a Roman who scoffs at the Italian capital's parking problem.
