Once upon a summertime, children were packed off to camp for two weeks to live in tents, go swimming, learn nature lore and maybe cook corn on the cob in a pit. Now they are off for two months, living in lush cabins with fireplaces and bathrooms, water skiing and scuba diving, and learning acting, auto mechanics or chamber music: "There is an increasing trend ward specialization," said etty Lowenstein, executive irector, New York section, American Camping Association, nc.

(AP) - A trend apparently has begun to place more Negroes on juries in the South under the pressure of appellate court rulings and a move for congressional action deaing with jury selection. There are, in fact, systematic efforts in some areas to include Negroes on juries, particularly those trying racial cases. Nowhere has the change been more dramatically evidenced than in the little town of Elville, Ga. — population 900-1,000 — which recently had its first jury case in five years and its first murder trial in 20 years and the first Negro jurors in anyone's memory. Two Negro brothers, 15 and 19, were, charged with the murder of a white policeman last November. After lawyers went through the jury panel, a jury of 11 Negroes and one white man had been picked. The trial of the younger brother resulted' in a six-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter, and the older brother got the same sentence when he pleaded guilty. ' How did a predominantly Negro jury turn up in Sehley Coun- Ity? Sheriff W. M. Ellis said: "You just have to abide by the law." He said the jury list was taken fro mthe tax rolls and that was it. But the list was revised two weeks before the trial. •'-'*'* * the trend is noticeable |n Georgia, South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi and Virginia, an Associated Press survey shows.

Lessening opposition to liberal views. ,By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) - Party primaries in 12 states will offer some tests at. the polls next month of President Johnson's Viet Nam policies. They will provide hints also on the extent of the political upheaval that has raised Republican hopes in the south. They seem likely to demonstrate more party division among Democrats than among Republicans. Oregon's May 24 primary is shaping up as a test of Pacific Northwest sentiment on Johnson's conduct of the' Southeast Asian war. GOP Gov. Mark Q. Hatfield, who is critical of the President's policies, seems certain to become his party's nominee for the Senate seat being vacated by Democratic Sen. Maurine B. Neuberger.. In the Democratic primary, Rep. Robert B. Duncan has jumped into the senatorial nomination race with an announcement of all-out support for Johnson's course. Howard Morgan, a member of the Federal Power Commission in the Kennedy administration, is in the contest with the claim support of Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., outspoken dissenter to the Johnson war policies. Primary voting takes place May 3 in Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma and New Mexico. * * * In Alabama, which has seen some switching by local officials from the Democratic to RepuD- Hcan parties, Mrs. George C. Wallace is trying for the Democratic nomination for governor, for which her husband is barred from running again. Republicans think that .the Democrats may come out of this contest so disorganized that GOP* R«p. ATOM D. Martin could win (lie governorship in the fall elections. They are hoping any such result might increase their 5-3 margin over Democrats in House seats. Democratic Sen. John J. Sparkman has no primary election opposition but may face a tough Republican challenge in November. » i * Gov. John B. Connally, a supporter" o£. the President's Viet Nam course who is at odds with his old friend Johnson on some domestic issues, is counted as certain of winning•renomination in the May 7 Texas primary. In Nebraska, on May 10, Gov. Frank B. Morrison is likely to become the Democratic nominee to oppose GOP Sen. Carl T. Curtis in what would be billed as a liberal vs. conservative general election contest. Curtis, a conservative, has supported Johnson's war polities. Morrison has voiced no dissent. West Virginia's May 10 primary will be followed by those in Pennsylvanra May 17, Kentucky May 24 and North Carolina May 28. The Pennsylvania voting will coincide with the filing deadline in New York State, where the Democrats are far from achieving any unity on a candidate to oppose GOP Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller.
