County Directors
Back S
County school directors Thurs
day night gave their blessing to
tlie county court's plan for re
organization of local schools, but
city school officials are report
ed to be studying several "dis
turbing" aspects of the plan.
The county school directors
met in a special session Thurs
day night to give final approval
to a resolution supporting the
plan which would reorganize the
county's schools into two dis
tricts. Directors had met luu weeks
ago in secret session to discuss
the plan. It was reported today
1 licit they had decided lo give
approval at that lime, but the
decision wasn't announced until
final reading of the resolution
Thursday night.
Three hearings are slated on
the plan next week in Merrill,
Klamath Falls and Chiloquin and
it is expected that several points
which some believe may be a
hindrance lo the plan's passage
will be brought out.

As this is written, the 1IM3
session of the current congress
has come finally to adjourn
ment for what remains of the
holiday season.
Its final act before adjourn
ment of both houses was enact
ment of a three billion dollar
foreign aid bill some two bil
lion dollars .LESS than had been
originally asked for foreign aid.
At about the same time, Sec
retary of Defense -McNamara
announces that next year's de
fense department budget will be
about a BILLION' dollars less
Mian the $52 billion budgeted to
be spent during the year that is
just ending.
How will these reductions be
Well, it appears that the for
eign aid cut will be made pos
sible by the simple device of
SPENDING LESS for foreign
aid projects which is another
way of saying that foreign
countries will just have to get
along with less help rem Uncle
That's about I he long and Ihe
short of it.
What of Ihe defense depart
ment? The savings there. Secretary
McNamara says, will be made
with no reduction in the military
power of the United States. In
fact, lie says, the new budget
will enable the nation lo main

any other time in v.t peace

One residl o th reduced pro
gram, he savs. will be that the
number of CIVILIANS employed
by the department will be re
duced to 990.C00.
He added that he doesn't
know tlie exact present level of
civilian employment in Ihe war
department, but it is somewhere
in excess of a million and
hasn't dropped below a million

ichool Plan
mcntary schools are reported
concerned over an opinion that
w hen the plan comes to election,
votes w ill be counted not only in
the two new districts, but sep
arately in the so-called "over
lap" area, giving that area a
veto power over the plan.
A source reported tiiat county
school directors and tlie county
court have been informed of
this opinion.
The court had said that in
tlie election votes would be
counted in each of the two new
districts, and the plan would
have lo pass in each of the dis
tricts to go into effect.
But the latest legal opinion
holds that voles will be counted
not only in the two now districts
but also in tlie area to be add
ed to tlie city elementary district
to form the new metropolitan
district. This area consists of
Stewart-Lennox and some terri
tory in the South Suburban area.
It is felt that these two areas
may not approve the plan, and
if the legal opinion holds true,
their disapproval would nullify
tlie plan, even though it might
pass in the rest of the county.
It is because this question of
i voting areas has not been set
j lied that the two city school
I boards have delayed meeting to
adopt a policy on the county
court plan. Further legal opin
ion has been sought.
The first public hearing will
be at Merrill High School' Mon
day night, starting at 8 o'clock.
The second will be Tuesday
night at Mills School in Klamath
Falls and the third at Chiloquin
High School Wednesday night.
These, too, will start at 8 p.m.
II is believed that the question
of voting areas will not be
brought up by city school of
ficials at Ihe hearings, but rath
er by some outside party.
It was noted that if the over
lap area disapproves the plan,
there may be another election
within 30 days to give this area
another chance to approve the
plan. But it was also brought
out that all elections must be
completed by April 30 if the
plan is to go into effect by July
I, and it is almost impossible
that two elections could be held
before April 30. This is the basis

S32 Million In Wheat Sold,
Believed Bound To Russia
Agriculture Department said to
day it has sold $32 million
worth of government wheat to
a private trader.
The announcement did not
say so but it was understood
the wheat was bound for the
Soviet bloc.
A department spokesman
said the wheat, classified as
No. 2 hard amber durum, was
sold for $2.50 per bushel I FOB
East Coast. The sale involved
12.9 million bushels.
The department would not
identify at Ibis lime Ihe private
trader involved.

To an extent yet to be deter

Officially Enters Race
Barry Goldwater announced to
day he will run for the Republi
can presidential nomination be
cause he feels that no other an
nounced GOP candidate offers
the American people "a clear
choice" against principles of the
Democratic party.
Firing a blast at "mc-looism"
among candidates of opposing
parties, Goldwater said:
"This will not be an engage
ment of personalities. It will be
an engagement of principles. I
have, always stood for govern
ment that is limited and bal
anced against ever - increasing
authority at Washington. I have
always stood for individual re
sponsibility and against regi
mentation." The Arizona Republican,
standing outside his home with
his right foot in a cast because
of recent surgery to remove a
calcium deposit, also announced
he will ile lor re-election to the
"I have previously an
nounced," he said, "that 1 will
ile for re-election to Ihe Sen
ate. I find no incompatibility in
the two candidacies."
This means that it Goldwater
does not receive the, Republican
presidential nomination he
would run for his third term in
the Senate.
Preview 01 Cnmulin
Goldwater gave a preview o
the kind of presidential cam
paign he expects to run when
lie expounded on the diercnces
between the Republican and the
Democratic parties.
He said:
"One of the great attributes
of our American two-party sys
tem has always been the re
flected differences in principles.
As a general rule one party has
emphasized individual liberty
and the other (Democratic) has
favored the extension of gov
ernment power.
"I am convinced that loday
a majority in Ihe Republican
party believes in the essential
emphasis on individual liberty. I
have been spelling oul my posi
tion now or 10 years in the Sen
ate and for years before I hat
here in my own slate.
"1 will spell it out even furth
er in the months lo come.
"I once was asked what kind
of a Republican 1 was. I replied
thai 1 was not a 'me-too' He
publican." This was taken as a direct
slap at Republican candidates
who would merely promise more
than Democratic candidates
without stressing any distinction
in political philosophy.
Goldwater made it clear he
would run "ot principles" and
he said he was convinced that
"millions of Americans" share
his belief in those principles
which, lean to the side called
Goldwater. indicating h i s
plans have been set for some
time, said he would begin his
campaign for the GOP nomina
tion at a fund-raising dinner
Monday in Grand Rapids, Mich.
He said also he would probab
ly campaign in New Hampshire
and enter the primary in that
state. Gov. Nelson Rockefeller
of New York, the only other an
nounced GOP candidate, has
said he will enler the New
Hampshire primary March 10
and this would mean an early
showdown between the pair.
Goldwater ruled oul any com
promise with liberal elements of
Ihe Republican parly and said
he would not accept the nom
ination for vice president. He
said he would rather continue
