It was in a touch football game between Lindsay's 10-week-old administration and members of the press corps. · "They play rough," Lindsay remarked after he was dumped on his face a shoulder in the first play. Cheered on by his wife and two children, he got up smiling. At one point, however, the mayor was c h a r g e d with unnecessary roughness as'he raced into the press backfield and grabbed television reporter arounc the head as the newsman was trying to get off a pass One of the stars for the administration w a s Buc Palmer, former New York Knickerbocker basketbal player and now head of the city's department of public events.

Mchail, 36, of Crockett, Tex.; aid he quit because "the Clan is bent on violence." The former insurance salesman said he submitted his esignation Friday in a letter o Imperial Wizard Robert Sheiton of Tuscaloosa, Ala. "There are many honorable men in the Klan . . . but it s being destroyed by a few eaders who appeal to the ype of men who resort to violence," McPhail said. HE SAID his decision to resign came after he attended a Louisiana Klan meeting ast weekend in Monroe, La., and discovered that three secret Klan units were operating in Texas without his knowledge, including one in s county. McPhail s a i d donations were sought at the Louisiana meeting to make bond for a Klansman who "was shot while parked on the'highway minding his own business." 'The truth is," McPhail wrote Sheiton, "that the Klansman was drunk and decided to shoot some Negroes. This type of action I will not condone." UI PRICED!
