(AP)- Detective John Woody was on the stand in Salina Police Court when the question came up. How does a woman hang onto a wall? Woody strode across the courtroom to a wall. He put his hands on it. "This," he said, "is the way a woman hangs onto a wall." He put his head down between his arms and broke into sobs. "And this," he said, "is the way a woman cries when she hangs onto a wall." The packed courtrom tittered but it was about the only moment of levity in a tense, hours-long hearing Tuesday before Magistrate Lou Tickel. One question was put to.Detec- tive Woody and the 12 other witnesses: How do you tell a crying sober woman from a crying drunk woman? The case of Mrs. Shirley L Thomas charged with being drunk on the street, would have been a piece of police court routine—ex cept for the fact she is the first person so accused to come to tria since City Commissioner Harry Banker charged the Police Department with indiscriminate ar- ests and mistreatment of the via ms. If Mrs. Thomas is acquitted icre apparently will be an in estigation of the Salina Police )epartment. Detective Woody testified Mrs 'homas was drunk on the street aw officers coming, went into an partment building and held ont wall. Mrs. Thomas testified she wa inly hysterical at being accostet iy the police. The hearing will continue today t was interrupted when Mrs 'homas broke down in tears o: he stand.

Edward Day tas reinstated a Georgia Negro eader as a mailman but the way announced it has drawn bitter criticism from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The NAACP's general counsel, lobert L. Carter, called Day's statement "vicious, insulting and misleading." He said "it raises grave doubt as to his suitability p or the Cabinet post he holds." The barbed words Tuesday concerned the controversial case of W. W. Law, head of the Georgia branch of the NAACP. He was dismissed from his postal job in Savannah on charges including extended absences from his mail route.

MOSCOW (AP)—Soviet Defense Minister Marshal Rodion Y. Malinovsky says the Soviet Union has "successfully solved the problem of destroying rockets in flight." Presumably he means his forces have an antimissile missile. Malinovsky told the 22nd Communist party congress Monday that the U.S.S.R.
