indicated that if in he opinion of their attorneys Judge Beardmores ruling does not deny the school board the ight of condemnation an appeal will not be started Instead of an appeal the board members said it would be quick er and cheaper to start the con demnation proceedings all over again The ruling climaxed months of motions hearings and testimony concerning the new school site getting near

Wednesday the United States will develop an in tercontinetai rocket capable of leveling any place on earth But they admitted itss extremely dif ficult to build a rocket accurate enough to hit a target miles goal of U S research ers In general these officials were inclined to discount the statement by Soviet Communist Party Chief Nikita Khrushchev Monday that the Russians soon would have such an

part the rainfall was so light as to be of minor value in alleviating dry conditions Many points reported less than a tenth of an inch The Weather Bureau said how ever that the days moisture might

Winnebagp A citizens committee site a its number one choice for a new high school Judge Beardmore based his de cision on the fact that the school aoard did not designate the size and location of each d e si r e d school site and playground thus depriving Greenwald of the oppor unity to agree with the board on the price for the land It is the opinion of the the ruling states that the statute requires such board to designate n their resolution authorizing condemnation proceedings specif cally what school shall be placed ipon each site selected During the trial before Judge 3earclmore members of the school board testified that they did not know specifically what schools would be placed on the site Too General The judge ruled that such ac ions were too general and not iufficiently specific to comply vith the school law The law states that the board nay condemn slightly more than 10 acres for each school site But he judges ruling says that since he area of specific school sites las not been fixed the sheriffs ury could not appraise any one chool site Judge Beardmore pointed out hat the value of the land varies and since no specific school sites vere designated the appraisers could not make an adequate ap praisal of any one school house ite or playground If the areas had been desig nated Judge Beardmore ruled he appraisers could have made in appraisal giving Greenwald the opportunity of accepting or rejecting the appraised condem nation value of each school site Three Sites The school board said in its authorization that the site would be used for three different dis tinct and contiguous school sites Strong Wind Fans Fire Plant Lost FORT DODGE Uf A strong wind fanned a grass fire in thr direction of the Glass Craft Boa Corp plant Tuesday and three o the companys buildings were de stroyed Refuses to Halt HTest Adlais Idea Rejected By MARVIN ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON res ident Eisenhower said Wednesday ha believes the United States is somewhere around an equal po sition with the Soviet Union in the development of guided mis siles Eisenhower made the statement at a news conference in replying to questions dealing with the as sertion by Kremlin Leader Nikita Khrushchev that Russia soon will have a hydrogen bomb missile capable of striking at any part of the world Eisenhower at the same time rejected suggestions by Adlai Stevenson and others that this country halt its tests of hydrogen bombs A new test is scheduled in the Pacific next month Refuses Comment While refusing to comment spe cifically on the proposal by Stev enson a candidate for the Demo cratic presidential nomination Eisenhower said it was a bit par adoxical when we are working as hard as we can on development of guided missiles for anyone to advocate halting Hbomb tests The President said he wishes he money spent on such pro for the erection of a school house school playground stadi um ficldhouse or other purpose connected with the Judge Beardmore also noted in the ruling that the electors of the school district have not at any election voted to authorize the school board to issue bonds which would have designated the three schools The ruling is not intended to apply to the school boards right of appeal it states or other ac tions the board may institute or any effort on the part of the board and Grcenwald to arrange a vol untary sale and purchase of the property grams could be channeled to peaceful that in con ducting the tests the United States is not simply trying to come up with what he termed a bigger bang than some other country But research in nuclear weap ons fields without tests is usless and a waste of money Eisenhow er said He added that as long as it is necessary to get into tha weapons field it should be done right Big Difference As for Khrushchevs statement that the Soviet Union soon will nave a guided missile with an H bomb warhead Eisenhower said he sees no reason why the Rus sian would make a misstatement on a matter like that He added that he did not accuse him of doing so But the President went on to say there is a very big difference between the capacity to turn out such weapons and the actual pro duction of efficient instruments of war Its a very expensive and com plicated business Eisenhower added In other matters the President said 1 Vice President Nixon has not told him definitely whether he wants to be the Presidents run ning mate again this fall Chief Target 2 He thinks the Democrats ars right in making him rather than his administration generally a chief target of criticism After all the President said he is the head of the administration He com mented that he has been shot at before 3 As for Tuesdays primary elections in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts where he ran far ahead of Democrat Adlai Steven son in popularity voting Eisen hower said with a grin his only comment was he is still as tonished anytime anybody votes for is very grateful 4 He denied by implication an assertion by Senate Democratic leader Lyndon Johnson of Texas that the President had abandoned 1952 pledges by opposing continua tion of 90 per cent of parity farm price supports Eisenhower said the record would show he never promised to support the 90 per cent level after 1954 but rather promised to work for 100 per cent parity in the market place OCONNOR TO SPEAK Frank Bucky OConnor Uni versity
