Budget, board
decisions due
in school vote
By Bill Yates
Bulletin Staff Writer
Voters in Deschutes School Dis
trict No. 1 will make their an
nual trek to the polls Monday to
decide the fate of the 1963-64 bud
get and to select two members of
the district's board of directors.
Board members will be named
in two of the seven zones into
which the district is divided. In
each case voters will find a sin
gle candidate. Carl Klippel is run
ning for re-election in zone four
and Mrs. Shirley Susac is a candi
date in zone one to succeed Jack
In the budget election voters
will ballot on the amount of the
1963-64 budget which is outside the
six per cent tax limitation. This is
a figure of $349,119.12.
Superintendent R, E. Jewell has
estimated that if the state legisla
ture should fail to increase state
basic school support, taxpayers
here will find that the new school
budget will have increased their
taxes by about 1.3 mills.
Could be Lower
However, should any of the bills
under consideration at Salem be
approved, he said, the additional
state money would result in a low
er millage for budget purposes
than in the present year.
The total tax levy required for
general fund purposes in the 1963
64 budget is $1,277,196.26. This
compares with a levy figure in
one current budget of $1,219,923.
48. As in recent years, a sizable
chunk of the increase must be at
tributed to the district's "explod
ing" school population.

Sharp internal
fighting breaks
out in Haiti
Republic (UPD Sharp internal
fighting was reported in Haiti
Dominican President Juan
Bosch again, warned the neighbor
ing country he would go to war
to halt any new aggression
against his country.
Reports from Haitian sources
said at least 45 of President Fran
cois Duvalier's Ton Macoute
(bogeymen) were killed Thursday
night in a skillful ambush laid by
resistance leader Clement earaoi.
Heavy firing of automatic weap
ons and at least five grenade ex
plosions were said to have been
heard on Port-au-prince ouiskiits.
Bosch, meanwhile, sought col
lective i n t e r-American action
against the Duvalier regime,
Bosch called Duvalier ' a men

and cited a statement Wednesday
by the Haitian president that only
God could remove him from

conization of American States
(OAS) flew to Santo Domingo
from the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince
Thursday, leaving be
hind a country gripped by lear
that Duvalier would resume a vio
lent campaign against his ene-
. mies.
May Not Wait
Bosch told foreign correspond
ents in his presidential residence
Thursday night that the Domini-
ran Republic would not wait for
OAS action in the event of re
newed Haitian aggression.
"The next time Haiti commits
aggression against us, we will tell
the OAS what our course of ac
tion has been, not from the Do
minican capital but from the capi
tal of a neighboring nation," he
Haiti and the Dominican Repub
lic share the Caribbean island of
Bosch's statement indicated Do
minican forces would invade Haiti
and try to crush Duvalier's auto
cratic regime.
Warns Against Aggression
Th Dominican president said he
would act if Haiti committed "any
agression against any Dominican
citizen, interest or place, a plot
acainst our government any ac
tivity dedicated to prejudice the
Dominican Republic, its interests
or Its nationals."
He said his government will
ask the OAS for a collective
break with Haiti under provisions
of the Rio Treaty of Inter-American
Defense which already has
been invoked by the OAS in send
ing the fact-finding team to Haiti
to study Dominican charges.
"We will make the request as
soon as the investigative commit
tee reports," Bosch said.

Enrollment increases in the
past five years have been running
between five and six per cent.
Jewell has estimated that enroll
ment in the Bend schools next
year will be 3,746, compared with
3,550 this year.
New Teachers Needed
The anticipated increase has
necessitated the hiring of 11 new
teachers for the system, thereby
adding somewhere in the neigh
borhood of $55,000 to the new bud
get. In addition the district has
hired a principal for Reid-Thomp-son
School to replace Orval Boyle,
who becomes principal next fall
of the Bear Creek elementary
Total cost of instruction in the
new budget is $1,390,975, which
represents approximately 72 per
cent of the total budget. In this
respect, the local district is in
line with the state-wide average
which is currently 71.2 per cent.
Other factors adding to "the high
er figure for instruction include a
$100 increase in the base salary
for teachers and continuation and
expansion of a number of pro
grams designed to improve the
quality of education afforded
youngsters of the district.
New Texts Due
Adoption of new English text
books for elementary classes has
required inclusion of a $10,000
figure in the instruction category
of the budget.
Among other items in the new
budget is provision for a school
bus, which will help alleviate
crowding and provide for the add
ed student load. The budget com
mittee included $10,000 for this
bus and it is hoped that a suit
able used one can be obtained.
The district has had good success
with several used buses purchased
in recent years.
The new budget will also in
clude under capital outlay a sum
of $5,000 for the possible acquisi
tion of building sites, as well as
a $5,000 emergency fund, new this
An increase of $24,000 in tne
budget for operation of plant can

Financier's son,
Gigi Graham wed
MONTR EUX, Switzerland
(UPD Evangelist Billy Graham
today gave his 17-year-old daugh
ter in marriage and also per
formed the ceremony which made
her the bride of the heir to one
of Switzerland's largest fortunes.
Graham, lean after his recent
illness but looking tanned, walked
down the aisle of Montreux' Pro
testant Cathedral at 3 p.m. with
his daughter Virginia "Gigi" to
her husband on his arm.
Waiting for them at the altar
was Stephan Tchividjian, 23, son
of an Armenia-born financier. He
became a Protestant after read
ing one of Graham's books.
Then Graham switched from his
role as father of the bride to that
of minister and officiated over
the ceremony which made Tchi
vidjian and his honey-blonde
daughter husband and wife.
More than 750
Negroes nabbed
during protest
Police arrested more than 750
Negroes here Thursday in the larg
est mass demonstration protesting
segregation ever held in the
United States.
Jamie Moore, chief of police in
this Deep South industrial center,
said a Negro leader had warned
him officers could plan on arrest
ing 4,000 Negroes today.
At least 2,000 Negroes were
milling in the streets at the
height of the protest wnicn ap
parently was triggered by the
command of Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., the best-known civil
rights leader in the nation.
Authorities said none of the
Negroes posted bond and all spent ;
the night- in jail.
Wave after wave of singing and
chanting Negroes, many of them
hooky-playing juveniles, converged
on the downtown area.
The Negroes were herded into
school buses when officers ran out
of paddy wagons and were hustled
off to city jail which already was
crowded with Negroes arrested
in earlier and smaller demonstra
tions. Motorcycle patrolmen at one
point raced their vehicles over
curbs and onto sidewalks to run
down and arrest a group of
marchers who had attempted to
There were no reported inci
dents of violence.
Although police obviously had
been tipped off of the demonstra

by McClellan
John L. McClellan said today a
runoff competition to see which
of two competing aircraft firms
can produce Uie best TFX fighter
might be in "the public interest."
The Arkansas Democrat, chair
man of the Senate investigations
subcommittee, made the state
ment as it was disclosed that an
other Senate subcommittee was
looking into a similar situation in
which Pentagon civilian leaders
awarded a plane contract over ob
jections of military officials.
Chairman John C. Stennis, D
Miss., of the Senate preparedness
subcommittee, said a staff study
had begun into programs Involv
ing new high-speed planes capa
ble of taking off vertically or
from short runways.
McCellan, who has been head
ing a lengthy investigation of the
TFX controversy, also challenged
Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc
Namara's contention that building
one TFX for both the Air Force
and Navy would save $1 billion.
McCellan declared It sounded to
him like "propaganda being
thrown all over the country to
try to sustain tins rough judgment

volving the security of our coun
try and its safety."

MOSCOW (UPD Deputy Com

suffered his second heart attack.

lic here since early Apil.
If he is ill, as reported, pre
sumably he is in a local clinic
or resting at home.
Western diplomats speculated
that Khrushchev might have been
referring to Kozlov s health when
he stressed in a speech last
month the fact that he now is
69 and cannot expect to continue
forever to hold the top jobs of
premier and party chief.
At that time the premier called

Diplomats here believe the suc
cession race behind Khrushchev,
in the event Kozlov might be
forced out by illness, would be
wide open.
There are no other clear-cut
candiates at the moment and no
indication anyone could hold both
top jobs successfully as Khrush
chev has.
Neither Stalin nor Lenin before
him succeeded in designating
their successors.
