Indi 0LI 'Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty" 11 Cor. 3-17 VOL. 63, NO. 9 MONDAY, JUNE 14, 19G5 ME 8-2411 e Trant ArM tc Etacwtwr ffllUTi 1A fa la to UVJ The ANAP STAR F Safety Parley 'Loop 9 Backers Urge Action, Rip Delaying Tactics Government and civic leaders yesterday called for action on the proposed inner-loop interstate highway around downtown Indianapolis on the eve of a hearing at which foes of the design hope to enlist City Council support. Councilman Max E. Bry-denthal sponsored the resolution that authorized the hearing, to be held tonight at 7:30, in the City-County Building Assembly Room. BRYDENTHAL SAID the council could pass a "strong" resolution which would force the State Highway Department to consider altering plans for the loop highway, but Council President Joseph C. Wallace said no resolution can be passed tonight because the session will not be a legal meeting of the council. Opponents of the approved design say it will work a hardship on persons living along the rights of way because of relocation 'of their homes and the building of a "Chinese wall" . through their neighborhoods." However, Roy C. Echols, president of the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, stressed that there have been 19 public hearings since 1957, and added: "THIS WHOLE problem has been investigated, discussed and decided. The plans have been formed, the formal hearings have been held, a decision has been made. "Now is the time for action." Governor Roger D. Branigin said, "I feel I must take the advice of the experts." He added that he does not think the proposal should be given further reconsideration. REPRESENTATIVES of groups opposing the route and those wanting the entire highway depressed (below grade) are expected to attend tonight's meeting. More than 50 public officials have been invited to attend. The recently formed Livable Indianapolis for Everyone Inc. (LIFE) has boosted opposition to the highway and wants a totally depressed loop high Bakery Strike Mediator Reports 4No Progress' Negotiations between management and representatives of union members on strike at three Indianapolis bakeries broke down at a meeting with Federal mediators yesterday. Jack E. Preston, a Federal mediator who directed the meeting, said "no progress" was made. However, both Colonial and Continental bakeries announced that normal production was being handled with supervisory personnel last night. THE THIRD bakery is American Bakeries Inc. (Taystee). A. L. Taggart II, president of Colonial, which employs 150 of the 350 striking workers, denied reports of a possible bread shortage. "There is not going to be any bread shortage and people should not get alarmed," Taggart said. ' C. H. Webb, general manager : of Continental, said picketing has been peaceful with no disturbances. Spokesmen for American Bakeries were not available for comment. A PROPOSAL by management, including wage increase of 8 cents an hour this year and another 8 cents next year, has been rejected by union membership. Management also agreed to increase health and welfare benefits, higher night way through less populated areas. A statement by the board of directors of the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce questioned the responsibility of groups who continue to oppose plans for the highway. "WE THINK that all citizens of Indianapolis should listen to these planners and engineers who have outstanding knowledge in community development and road building and not heed organizations whose responsibility may be questioned and whose arguments do not hold water." Echols echoed this opinion in his own personal statement, saying: "It is our belief that after months and months of study we should listen to the experts who spent years on this problem and not to new organizations with old arguments and old faces." United States Representative Andrew Jacobs Jr. (D-Ind.) recently agreed with opponents to the current design of the highway and asked that the new highway be built below the surrounding grade level. MAYOR JOHN J. Barton will not attend the meeting. He also refused to send anyone in his place. "I don't think I need anyone to speak for me," he said. "I have made myself clear on the matter." Barton has said he wants the highway constructed in the best and most economical way. "I feel we must leave that up to the experts," he said. ONE OF THE experts, Martin L. Hayes, executive director of the State Highway Commission, recalled that work on Turn to Page 12, Column 4 pay, an added holiday and wage adjustment for skilled workers. George F r e i j e, secretary-treasurer, of Bakery Workers Union Local 372, said the union is seeking a 15-cent-an- hour increase for about 120 of the strikers, and a 10-cent hourly increase for the other strikers. A new contract meeting has not been scheduled by the Federal Mediation and Con ciliation Service. Bride Slain, Husband Beaten In Robbery On STAR STATE REPORT Vincennes, Ind.

HE SAID he was in the back seat of the two-door sedan and his wife had just re-started the engine when he heard "a voice come from the darkness and saw a hand come through the open window. McLemore could not recall what the "voice" said and, when asked if he saw a gun McLemore said he could recall only seeing something that "flashed" in the hand. He told Sheriff Youngstafel he grabbed the arm and was hit in the face. He said his wife, who had turned to face him in the back seat, was then shot and he was dragged from Miss Malinosky astonished her parents and others in the audience by walking with measured steps to Dr. Alfred B. Bonds Jr., president of the college in suburban Berea. As she rested on Dr. Bonds' arms, the audience stood for a 5-minute ovation. The girl's mother, Mrs. Raymond Malinosky of Geneva, O., said Nancy had attempted to walk a few steps after being hit by polio at age 6, but since then had been confined to the wheelchair. Nancy had been practicing secretly with close friends the last three weeks to be able to walk at commencement time with the other 396 seniors, Mrs. Malinosky said.

WHEN HE AWOKE, he said his wife was lying unconscious on the front seat of the auto and his wallet, containing about $100 was missing. Sheriff Youngstafel said McLemore then drove to a service station at the north edge of Vincennes for help. "I was driving as fast as I could. I wanted police to stop me," he told authorities. Police said they received the report about 4:30 a.m. and theorized the slaying took place between 3:30 and 4 a.m. Mrs. McLemore died about 7:30 a.m. McLemore was released from the hospital after he was treated for bruises on the face. Several stitches were taken Paratroopers Awaiting Orders Near Dong Xoai r New York Times News Service Saigon, South Viet Nam (Monday) An American battalion of paratroopers, flown yesterday to an air strip 20 miles south of Dong Xoai, was awaiting orders this morning that may send it into the biggest battle of the Vietnamese war. The airborne unit, normally stationed at Vung Tau, was believed to number about 800 men. The troops were flown yesterday afternoon to the Phouc Vinh airfield 40 miles north of Saigon. A United States military spokesman said the men spent an uneventful night near the airstrip. "They were not committed to action and they were not attacked," he said. IF THE PARATROOPERS are committed, their use will mark the first time American ground troops have been sent into direct combat against Communist forces since the Korean War. The troop movement came after the Viet Cong had torn through another government battalion Saturday at Dong Xoai. The Communist troops are making their most strenuous attempt there to take and hold a district capital. Five Vietnamese battalions, each ranging in strength from 300 to 500 men, have been put out of action by Communist troops within the last two weeks at Quang Ngai, Phu Bon and Dong Xoai. The equivalent of another battalion of paramilitary forces has also been lost to the government at Dong Xoai. Informed estimates, not yet confirmed, show 900 government soldiers killed or miss ing trom tne rour-aay name around Dong Xoai, in Phuoc Long province. The losses are the worst ever suffered by government troops in a single action. According to information from the site last night, government forces have withdrawn to the town, where they are boxed in by Com munist troops. The fighting today was described as little more than light sniping by the Viet Cong. Elements of two more Vietnamese battalions have been sent to the north and south of the town but have not yet engaged the Communist forces. THE LATEST Vietnamese battalion to be ambushed was also a paratrooper unit, the Seventh Airborne. Its troops were caught by the Viet Cong while searching for survivors from a government infantry battalion of 276 men that was almost annihilated last Thursday.

TWO YOUNG MEN, formerly of Kentucky and now living at Chicago, were apprehended about 6:30 a.m. in a roadblock at Princeton about 20 miles from here. Police said they were arrested on preliminary charges of robbery. Their car matched the description of one seen near Vincennes at the time of the slaying, police said. Sheriff Youngstafel said one of the men was wearing a black shirt and added that the only description McLemore could give authorities of the assailant was that he was believed to have been wearing "dark clothing."

V III ""III S" .;,A: (AP Wlrephoto) YOUNGSTER CARRIED TO U.S. HELICOPTER Viet Village Evacuated From Cong Butler Grads Told To Act, Not Watch The Pulitzer Prize-winning publisher of the Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution last night urged Butler University's 367 graduates to become participants rather than spectators on the sidelines of the great issues confronting the country. Ralph E. McGill, speaking at commencement exercises in Clowes Memorial Hall, said the majority of good people, by remaining aloof as they have in the civil rights struggle in too many communities, make room for the minority groups, "the commies and the extremists, the fomenters of riots who do not believe in popular government." HE TOOK ISSUE with those who say that Communism is behind racial unrest in this country. "The civil rights movement," he said, "is not Communist directed or controlled.- "It has been the failure of the 'good people'," he added, "to take action against human suffering and open injustice that invited and made possible participation of the radical left." BUT HE SAID the response at Selma, Ala., was "a tremendous moral demonstration of American principles because there were good citizens, ministers, priests, gentle-faced nuns with conviction all there as witnesses to moral truth and moral force in this country." Dr. Stephen England, president of the International Convention of Christian Churches, told the graduating class during the baccalaureate program U.S. 41 the two Chicago men, who are 19 and 22 years old, because they have no previous arrests. Both men and McLemore volunteered to take paraffin and polygraph tests, the sheriff said. RESULTS OF THE paraffin tests on the three men were not available, Sheriff Youngstafel said. The polygraph tests will be given today at Indianapolis, authorities said. The sheriff said one of the two men apprehended in the roadblock matched the description of a man wanted for questioning in the brutal slaying at Richmond Thursday of two service station employes. Youngstafel said both men Turn to Page 13, Column 3 Toll earlier in the day that education "the seeking of truth" demands freedom as its precondition. "THE FIRST freedom that leads to truth is the freedom to ask all questions. There is no area exempt from questions," he said. "No power of church or! government or financial pow-i er or social status must be allowed to prevent asking the ! questions," he said. "In the barnyard of true learning, there are no sacred cows." Dr. Alexander E. Jones, Butler president, awarded degrees in liberal arts and sciences, education, business ad- ministration, pharmacy, music and graduate instruction.
