Another policeman was injured when a radio car door slammed on his fingers as he was helping disperse a crowd gathered in a Ne gro neighborhood. A detective was injured when a brick was thrown through a window of a police car. Police Commissioner Howard R. Leary arrived in the East New York section shortly after midnight and cruised in a department car. Leary said there was no evidence that "outsiders" were in the area causing trouble. Two Negro community leaders had said Friday that they had seen "agitators" who previously had been spotted in racial trouble spots in Chicago and Los Angeles. A white motorcyclist was hit by a brick as he stood talking with a friend in East New York. He was not seriously hurt. In addition to the heavy police reinforcements in East New York, an estimated 1,000 police were deployed as a precautionary measure to several other ghetto areas including Harlem, the southeast Bronx and Brooklyn. The police — many wearing plastic helmets — were on foot, in radio cars and on horseback. Both Leary and Mayor John V. Lindsay appealed Friday for peace in the city. Leary appealed to parents in East New York to keep their teen-aged children in the house after dark. c, prescription practices under medicare and federally aided health programs. Long, assistant Democratic eader, has introduced a bill hat would require the prescribing and dispensing of medicare drugs under their chemical, generic names, not under private brand names. Long said that would reduce sharply the cost of medicine prescribed under the new program o! medical care for the aged. While the hearings will deal with federal health programs, Long said in an interview, they also will focus a public spotlight on the whole field of drug prices. * * * Long said he has not set a timetable for the inquiry, and it may not be completed befoi-e the Senate adjourns this year. I The Finance Committee now is working on unemployment compensation legislation, and the senator said other bills must be handled before hearings can be held on his drug proposal. Long said without his proposed legislation, drug prices could send the cost of medicare soaring. "Prescribing by brand name is the formula for monopoly." he told the Senate.
