Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - September 8, 1959, Long Beach, California BOMBS STIR NEW 3 A Areas Hit by Blasts in Little Rock All Quiet In Miami 4 Negroes Enter Elementary Class By the Associated Press Races were mixed for the first time in a Florida public school today. There were no incidents as a Miami school accepted four Negroes, in contrast to Little Rock, Ark., where dynamite blasts touched off new terror. Virginia extended public school integration to two more communities Tuesday without disorder. Dynamite bombs Monday night damaged offices of the Little Rock school board, the office of Mayor Werner C. Krioop and Fire Chief Gann Nally's station wagon which was parked in front of his home. There were no injuries. The bombings did not delay today's opening of junior high and elementary schools nor affect the operation of the four high schools which opened Aug. 12. GOV. ORVAL FAUBUS to day deplored three bombings over school integration as public indignation mounted. A reward fund was proposed for capture of the persons who tossed the bombs. Two men reportedly were seen fleeing from the bombed structures after hurling ob- jects at them. No arrests have been made. Faubus told a news con- ference he thought the bomb- ings were "sickening and de- plorable." He said: "I .have fervently hoped and made every effort to prevent such incidents. Such acls are wrong, by whomever employed, and I hope they will not be re- peated." Faubus closed the public high schools against integra- tion last year. s 3 THE RF.WARD FUND was proposed by Ben W. Dees, a consulting engineer. He said he would try to organize a movement to set up the fund. Dees said he belonged to a Presbyterian church near the bombed school building. Some of the church's windows were shattered in the blast. He said his children often went to night services at the church.

By WILLIAM L. RYAN Associated Press News Analvst As a boy, Nikita Khrushchev was good to his mother. He attended Sunday school at the local church and recited the Gospels from memory. He was a crack- ing good halfback at soccer. In short, he was Nikita Khrushchev: all-Russian boy. This is the picture' of Khrushchev now emerging :rom his own and thousands of other words pouring from Moscow press and radio in English and other in advance of his visit to the United States. THE ROUND little man with the steely cold blue eyes will appear before Americans as the new Khrushchev, 1959 model. The advance billing portrays the Soviet premier as anything but a sinister leader of a world conspiracy using the name communism. On the contrary, it makes him the prototype of alt suc- cess story heroes who worked their way to the top through patience, fortitude and honest toil.

M Billion Housing Bill OKd WASHINGTON The cnale Bunking Committee xlay approved a Ihird-lry, llion-dollar housing bill 'ter receiving assurances resident Eisenhower would gn it. The committee made only ircc changes in the second easure Eisenhower vetoed si week. But chairman A. illis Robertson (D-Vn) said icse changes were enough to Tin definite word from the Vliite House that the new ersion would be approved. The word came, Robertson nid, after a meeting of Re- ublican congressional lead- rs with the President this norning. v THE BIGGEST change in he new bill is the elimination f a 50-million-dollar direct oan program for college lassrooms. This program rough! strong objections rom Eisenhower. The other changes: 1. Elimination of an Oct. 1, 900, cutoff dale on the eight lillion dollars of new author- ty for tho FHA mortgage in- iirance program. 2, A change in (he urban enewal or slum clearance irogram to provide that the J50 million dollars of new ;ranl money for cities will not be available all at once nil over a two-year period, he bill would allow 350 mil- ion the first year, nrri 300 million the second. The Presi- dent had protested that all of he G50 million might be spent n one year. The bill retains two fea- ures to which Eisenhower to begin new low-rent public housing units and a 50-mil- lion-dollar direct loan pro- gram for housing for the el- derly. Sen. John Sparkman (D- chairman of the Housing subcommittee, said the new measure probably will be con- sidered by the Senate Wednesday.
