The offices were also told to take down any posters or other displays that might encourage froeign travel. A. P. story. The scene is a passport office in New York City. A man comes to the desk and says to the woman behind the counter, "I'm a tourist. I need a passport." THE, WOMAN presses a button with her loot alerting four FBI men in an adjoining room. The woman says, "What did you wart the passport for?" "I want to cash a travellers check at Macy's. What do you think I want a passport for?" "Were you planning to use it to go abroad?" NO, I wanted it to paste my green tamps In. Sure, I want to go abroad! " "We can't stop you from getting a paisport. All we can do is warn you about the cholera epidemic and let you make your own decision." "What cholera epidemic?" "I'm sorry, I can't give out any tourist information. Please fill this out. I presume you have riot insurance?" "No, I don't have riot insurance. Vtiat do I need riot insurance for?" "WE FIND it's -very helpful, f specially if you plan on visiting an jnerican embassy." "Look, I just want to take a acation with my family." "You mean you were going to rravel with your dependents at a time like this?" "What do you mean, a time like this? I hear it's safer in Berlin than c.n a subway in New York City." "Very well, let me have the fames of your next of kin." . One of the most exciting things to happen to junior rain-or-shine coats this season is their very young, with-it attitudes. The old drab basic approach indicating that a raincoat is strictly utilitarian is really passe this year. . Instead a poplin or tackle twill coat has a great big industrial zipper marching up the front or detailing the sleeves or pockets. Or a gay floral printed or polka dotted raincoat has even greater dash with a slicker finish. On the supposedly more conservative side there are Chelsea collars, off-center closings, or sharp color combinations. These are just a sampling of the myriads of really imaginative ways with all-weather coats. For mere pin money prices, why not add one of these young beat coats to your coat wardrobe? flmi!lllllll!11H!IIl!!!HI IIUfCAN t COMeY. GIVE 'EM VV, 'I U im VPTP J ,11. ANOTHER '.

It doesn't cover you for floods, hurricanes, or tornadoes." "I wasn't thinking about floods, hurricanes, or tornadoes." "We're asking all American to think about them." "I was going to Switzerland." "During the avalanche season?" "On, for crying out loud! Are you going to give me the passport or aren't you?" "OUR instructions are to issue passports to anyone who wants them, regardless of his political beliefs." "You don't even know, my political beliefs." "We have a good idea of the type of person who wants to travel abroad at this time. We call him a fellow traveler." "This is nonsense. I'm a businessman, a registered Republican, and I want to show my family Europe. Is there anything subversive about that?" "Why don't you take them to Disneyland?" "I've been to Disneyland." "Since they added the submarine ride?" "Can I have my passport?" "Just a moment, please." She goes in to consult the FBI men. "Give him the passport," the chief advises. "We'll get him at Kennedy International Airport when we pick Up the entire family at the same time." At WHO SAYS OUR space program isn't worth the price?

T V Probers Say Segregation Is Practiced WASHINGTON (UPI) The Civil Rights Commission yesterday accused the Department of Agriculture of discriminating against Negro farmers in the South. By following "local patterns of racial segregation," the commission said the department had denied Negroes equal benefits from four programs, resulting in South having distinct white and Negro farm economies. IN ACCEPTING the commission's report, President Johnson said he had ordered Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman to report on the situation. "We recognize that these problems (of farm families) are even more burdensome for those who suffer from the wasteful and divisive practices of racial discrimination," the president said. "It must be our goal to eradicate these twin evils." Among other things reported in its 136-page report, the commission said it found that federal funds were used to train white and Negro county agriculture agents separately; that Negroes were virtually excluded from policy-making positions in department programs and that federally-financed 4-H clubs were seg regated. FREEMAN acknowledged that "there has been discrimination in the administration of programs." But he insisted that considerable progress has been made to eliminate inequities since the comrtiission completed its 16-state survey. Freeman pledged in a statement to fully enforce the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and to "insure that all vestige of discrimination and inequality will be removed from the Department of Agriculture." He noted that the department has drafted regulations to enforce Title Six of the 1964 act providing for a cut-off of federal assistance where discrimination is practiced. THE COMMISSION'S report on federal agriculture services followed similar reports it has made concerning inequities in federal education, welfare, fair employment and 'manpower training programs. The group concentrated its study on four agencies the Federal Extension Service, Farmers Home Administration, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, and the Soil Conservation Service-all financed in part with federal funds. The report, started February 1964, was the result of surveys and interviews with 170 local officials in 16 Southern and border states, visits with 50 department experts and a number of field surveys. THE COMMISSION reported it found many instances where "practices of segregation, unequal treatment and exclusion" have resulted in denying rural southern Negroes ' "the services and benefits of these programs." It said it was convinced that "there are two , distinct Southern agricultural economies one white and the other Negro." The commission said its report -covered surveys in 16 states, but different states were covered in reviewing each of the four programs. THE STATES surveyed for one program or another included Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, K e n t u cky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia'. Khanh On Airliner Bound For Europe HONG KONG IP) Lt. Gen. Nguyen Khanh, ousted commander of South Viet Nam's armed forces, left Hong Kong yesterday on a commercial airliner bound for Europe.

IIIIIIIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllllllltllllllllUllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllUIN Slaughter Followed Marriage Billy Bowlegs Told Of How By WESLEY STOUT Former Editor Saturday Evening Post WITH BILLY BOWLEGS' III death, we can reveal a story we could not tell in his lifetime. Titusville In March, 1889, reported seven Seminole men and women, including Old Tiger and Young Tiger, killed near Okeechobee by a man named Nigger Jim, who ran amok and was killed in turn by Billy Martin. Kissimmee gave a different report, quoting Eli Morgan, Ft. Bas-singer cattleman, as saying half-breed Jim Jumper had killed seven Indians near Alligator Swamp Feb. 14. He had shot down his sister in a quarrel and when others Intervened, gunned them down, then was shot by John Jumper.

But I think we're carrying things too far when we go on strike against motherhood. YOU just can't win if you start downgrading mothers, because everybody either is one or has one, and reeling on the subject runs high. Somehow I can't agree with Dr. Ethel M. Albert's recent statement during a panel discussion at the University of California medical center in San Francisco: "TO PREFER some other design of life to motherhood is not so astonishing. It may even appear rational if we consider it In the light of the great opportunities for choice open to all or most of us in the modern world." Dr. Albert may prefer a stethoscope and a laboratory cadaver to a live, pink squirming baby, but I don't. The cadaver may be less trouble, but consider its potential from a scientific viewpoint. The cadaver and the stethoscope remain static, but the baby offers a constantly changing study of growth, development, adjustment to environ- m e n t , personality, whims, and charm. A baby can tug at your heartstrings, and what laboratory specimen can do that? A BABY can keep you up at night, frazzle your nerves by crying for no apparent reason, have spells of pure cussedness, wear you down as you wash diapers and sterilize bottles, but then the baby all of a sudden smiles and says "Ma-ma" for the first time, and you forget all those 2 o'clock bottles and sleepless nights. A baby grows up faster than seems possible, and all of a sudden you have a small, independent individual, able to walk and talk and feed himself and charm the whiskers off of Scrooge himself. After he learns to walk, of course, there is another, but different, period of general hysteria, when he sets out to see the world and falls off the back porch,, or decides to ride his tricycle down the highway, or eats the dog food. But somehow both you and he usually survive. You still have ahead of you the painful moment when he first starts off to school, and the often agonizing teenage years, but there's never a dull moment. And if you and he are made of the right stuff, the final product is worth all the blood, sweat, and tears that went before. A childless woman can have a busy, successful, and interesting life, it is true. An unmarried woman can build up an absorbing career and gather about her a circle of entertaining friends. By spending all her money on herself she can have and do almost anything she wants, whether it be travel, mink coats, or diamonds. She can be happy, in her fashion. But she will never know that she has missed half of the experience of living. I 1 A- mama! enNM MTiwn ' ) ni appealed to Albert DeVane, who told us the facts, not to be printed while his friend, Billy Bowlegs, lived. THE SEMINOLES LEFT IN Flor-Ida after the removal of Billy Bowelgs II "and his bank to the Indian Territory had decreed that there be no more intermarriages between Indians and Negroes or whites. Among those refused permission to marry into the tribe was Jim Jumper, known to the Whites as Nigger Jim, a son of Old Nancy, who was more than half Negro. He was the half-brother of Billy Bowlegs' III mother. Another was Charlie Dixie, known to Whites as Negro Dixie. He was the only child of Milly Pitcher, a slave of the Panther clan, his father Miami Billy. The latter was a full brother of Jesie Billy, father of Billy Cornpatch and Billy Fewell; and Fewell was the father of Billy Bowlegs III, "OLD TIGER"WAS Waxey Micco, son of Alligator and last chief of the Seminoles, who was visiting the Okeechobee band. "Young Tiger" . was an older brother of Capt! Tom Tiger, medicine man of the Cow Creek band. His wife, Martha, was a niece pt Chief Tallahassee. When Jim Jumper was told to find himself a Negro wife, he said no, he had been reared a Seminole and wanted a' Seminole wife. Refused again, he got drunk. He first shot Waxey Micco down. "Young Tiger" coming to the chief's aid, was killed, then his squaw, Martha. His fourth victim' was his half-sister, mother of Billy Bowlegs III. who had attacked him with a knife. A small boy, half-brother of Bowlegs, was knocked on the head and thought dead, but revived. Jimmy Tiger was his next victim. JUMPER SHOT AT AND missed another small boy, who ran to Billy Martin, who returned, with a .38 Winchester, found Jumper sitting on a log eating soffkee, and killed him.

They put a rope around the corpse's neck and dragged it to a small cypress pond and threw it in for the gators and buzzards to feed on. The Indians at once abandoned their village and never returned to it. The scene is alongside Florida 70 between Okeechobee and Ft. Pierce in Perry Carlton's pasture, known to oldtimers as "Nigger Jim Scrub." MR. DEVANE WAS 20 years in persuading an Indian to reveal the cause of the murders; and it was Billy Bowlegs who first gave him the facts. A daughter of Billy Martin, Emma Micco, now dead, confirmed it, all . details. All Indian versions gave the dead as six, not seven.
