FAGE2 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N SATURDAY, MARCH 12, SHERIFF CLARK CLAIMS Negroes, loo, Want Segregation By JAY HALL "' Cititca Staff Writer "Responsible Negroes" in Sefaw, Ala., want segregation just as much as "responsible ·whites" do, Sheriff James dark of-JSelma's Dallas County declares. His comments fell on the friendly ears of about 350 people in the Santa Rita Hotel last night after an hour-long march ·f pickets outside the hotel. Earlier in the day, representatives of 38 ministers met at the Tucson Press Club and declared that the local police and sheriffs departments should have taken a stand of "disavowal and repudiation" of Clark as the speaker for the Alabaman's talk which was sponsored by a new group, the Tucson Committee to Support Your Local Police. Chief Bernard L. Garmire --CIHnn Wwtoi By M*rk Godfrey dark Speaks... FOR CANCER VICTIMS Blood Exchange | Begins Monday 'f^f-Tucson's Robert F. Allen and.forjner baseball player fiarry T. Griffith will begin exchanginglbiood Monday In^^he second step of an experiment which doctors hope will save them both from dying of cancer. {":-Griffith, 6S, has been recuperating at his home in Mpurtown, Pa., from an operation; March 4 in which cancer tissue was removed from each loan and transplanted in the other. Seat he cut short his stay yes- ilrday to return to Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buf- Skv N.Y., because of increas- infpain in his back. Allen has been recovering at the institute, where the cancer transplant was performed. Drs. Sigmond Nadler and George E. Moore of Roswell Park are hoping that the cancer transplants will build up antibodies which then can be injected into the bloodstream of @ch man, killing his cancer. v-Doctors have told Allen he ffcijCdie of osteogenic sarcoma, Jtfc»e type of bone cancer, within two to six months unless Qje; experiment is a success. Pflffith, suffering from the ssje disease, also has been given only a short time to live UnJoss his cancer can be arrested. ;~Mrs. Griffith said the Associated Press in Buffalo yesterday that her husband's back pain is misbelieved to be related to his cancer condition, but to another affliction, Paget's disease, a thickening of the bones. Meanwhile, the Robert F. Allen Fund, which will help pay part of the former Tucson High School and University of Illinois football player's expenses, has increased to $854.84. Persons wishing to contribute may send their donations to the Robert F. Allen Fund, care of the Tucson Daily Citizen, P.O. Box 5027, Tucson. Two Burglaries Being Probed City detectives are investigating two burglaries which netted thieves more than $2,500 worth of copper wire and other items. Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 830 N. 1st Ave., yesterday reported the theft of two typewriters and kitchenware valued at more than $1,000. At a storage shed belonging to Ryan Electric Construction Co., located 414 miles south of Ajo Way and Campbell Ave., thieves broke off a door lock and made off with copper wire valued at $1,500. previously had issued a statement that the Tucson Police Department "has so affiliation with the group sponsoring the visit of Sheriff James G. Clark," but the ministers regarded this as too neutral. One of the complaints of the ministers was that the Confederate flag flies over the capital dome in Montgomery at a higher peak than the United States flag. They presented an American Flag to Clark in the lobby of the hotel prior to a reception for the sheriff at 5:30 p.m. Clark received the flag with diplomacy and said the U.S. flag flies on a steel standard on the south lawn of the capitol. School children contributed the money for the pole, he said, and the original flag was given to Alabama by the Rainbow Division of World War I which had been commanded by Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Further, said Clark, it has been his observation that several other state capitals have then* flags on lawn standards rather than on atop their buildings. At the door of the hotel just before program time, the Tucson Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People handed out a leaflet which got into Clark's hands and which he rebutted categorically at the start of his speech which continued for more than an hour. The NAACP, the leaflet said, was not protesting his right to speak but "the things Mr. Clark represents: "Suppression of civil rights activities; police brutality; cattle prods; fire hoses and police dogs; extreme racism; forced marches of Negro youth; 19 civil rights workers murdered in Alabama last year; the attempt to keep alive a way of life that is repugnant to most Americans." Clark said the influx of civil rights ("I call them civil wrongs") workers left no recourse except an effort to protect the citizens of Selma and Dallas County. He' said ordinary necessary force was unfairly regarded as police brutality. The cattle prod, a battery operated Istick that provides a mild shock, was less brutal than the solid night stick of law enforcement officers, he stated, but wa abandoned after publicity focused on the prods. The Alabaman said he doubts that the 19 murder victims claimed by the NAACP could all be called "civil rights workers." The demonstrations in Selma and elsewhere in Alabama, he said, brought in a rabble of perverts, college kids out for kicks, misfits, and "human garbage" cast out of their own communities. He contended that sex orgies were part of the civil rights camp-out in Selma. He said the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Negro figurehead for the civil rights movement, was always careful not to participate in any demonstrations he relized would probably turn violent, but arranged to get himself arrested when non-violence appeared assured. Repeatedly, Clark, who said this will be his last address on the Selma story for some months, declared that much of the civil rights demonstrating was Communist - inspired and that the workers were Communist-infiltrated. One of the picket's placards outside the hotel read: "Clark has the right to speak. We have the duty to protest." Howard A. Bring President and Owner Of MEMORIAL CHAPEL 236 S.

An FBI agent was rescued today after spending a terrifying eight h o u r s buried in a mountain snowslide while bulldozers ran back and forth above his partly crushed automobile. Only the air in the car saved the life of George Foster, 36. State troopers said he might not have survived had he been buried much longer. Tons of snow slid down a mountainside about 6 p.m. yesterday on U.S. Highway 10 east of Snoqualmie Pass summit; about 50 miles east of Seattle. One car was found partly covered and its occupants w e r e rescued. Highways department crewmen probed for other cars. Not finding any,. they started clearing the highway. Foster lay in the car, barely able to move under the smashed roof. He told troopers he could hear the bulldozers operating above him. About 2:15 a.m. his car was discovered and he was rushed to a hospital here. He was reported in satisfactory condition. Foster, recently transferred to S e a t t l e from Wenatchee, Wash., was returning there to visit his wife and five children when the slide hit. After Pickets March SCHMID-ROWE CASE Trial Put Off; Publicity Noted The already heavy volume of testimony carried by news media about Alleen Rowe's death has resulted in a,six-month continuance of Charles H. Schmid Jr.'s second murder trial. Superior Court Judge Mary Anne Richey granted the motion of Schmid's attorney, William Tinney Jr., for a postponement in the case until Oct. 4. Hie trial originally had been set for next Tuesday. In announcing her decision, Mrs. Richey said: "I think it would be impossible to get a fair and impartial jury at this time." She said her ' chief concern was the "great amount" of sworn testimony about the Rowe case that was brought out during Schmid's recent trial on two murder charges in connection with the slayings of Gretchen and Wendy Fritz. "I also think the State Supreme Court would reverse a conviction in this case, if a continuance was not granted," Mrs. Richey observed. A 23-year-old part-time guitar player and upholsterer, Schmid was found guilty just 10 days ago .of first-degree murder charges in the slayings of the Fritz girls. On both verdicts, the jury set the penalty at "death in the state's gas chamber. The date of the execution and formal pronouncement of the sentence was rescheduled yesterday to March 25. Mrs. Richey's ruling came at the close of a two-hour hearing at which representatives of local news media gave testimony concerning the extensive coverage of the Fritz and Rowe cases since Schmid's arrest last Nov. 22. Miss Rowe, 15, disappeared from her home on May 31, 1964. Her body has never been found, although two persons admitted complicity in the slaying and have been sentenced to state prison. 40-Foot Fall Kills Welder On D-M Job Funeral arrangements are pending today for S t e w a r t Wakefield, 47-year-old welder who fell 40 feet to his death yesterday morning at a construction site on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Sam Goddard thinks there are plenty of things right with Tucson teen-agers. With representatives of all Tucson area high schools present, Goddard yesterday fired up students with a morale-boosting talk at Palo Verde High School. It took some of the edge off unfavorable national publicity for Tucson's youth in connection with the C h a r l e s Howard Schmid Jr. murder charges in the case deaths. of three teen-age The governor was speaking at the request of the Student Progress Organization of Tucson (SPOT). Goddard cited instance after instance of teen-age accomplishments and reminded that Astronaut Frank Borman, who made a historic 14-day journey through outer space, attended Tucson schools. He told the students that police Chief Bernard L. Garmire says that only 2 per cent of the city's teen-agers get into serious trouble with .the law. Reminding them of their re- sponsibilities as young citizens, he said: "In. a very few years, you are going to have to replace us in local, state and national government. The pressures will be far tougher than they are today . .. "Your job as leaders is going to have to be of the highest or-"der if we are going to preserve peace and our kind/of govern-; ment."

Copper Miners, Chilean Troop Battle; Seven Dead SANTIAGO, C h i l e - U P I Copper miners armed with pistols, knives, clubms and stones battled troops at the U.S.-owned Salvador mine yesterday in an outburst of rioting in which at least seven persons were reported killed. Twenty-five persons were injured, including two army officers and two women. A defense ministry communi- que blamed congressmen a n d union leaders loyal to the opposition CommunistiSocialist "popular front" for the incident, which stemed from an illegal strike. THE GOVERNMENT denounced the strike as "subversive" and said it was politically inspired. The defense comunique said the shooting started when 85 soldiers were sent to take over the union headquarters at Salvador, from which troops had repeatedly been fired on by snipers. Three hundred miners entrenched in the building opened fire on the troops, and about 1,000 other miners flocked in to join the fight. The troops were driven to the shelter of a nearby police station. THE TROOPS used police machine guns to drive off the mob, which dispersed when army reinforcements appeared on the scene. Miners at the Salvador and Potrerillos mines, operated by a subsidiary of the Anaconda Company, were called out on strike by then 1 union last week in sympathy with workers at the Braden (Kennecott) Company's Teniente mine, who have been on strike for more than two months. The government has made no effort to intervene in' the Braden strike, which was called 'in support of wage demands. Sympathy strikes, however, a r e banned by Chilean law, so the Anaconda strikers were ordered back to work Wednesday. THE MINE UNION is run by a Communist-Socialist coalition closely linked to the political "popular front," whose candidate for president was. defeated by Christian D e m o c r a t Eduardo Frei in the last election. The government charges that the copper strikes, a serious threat to Chile's economy, were called in a deliberate effort to embarrass the Frei administration.
