i MUNCIE EVENING PRESS, THURSDAY, AUCUST 3, 1967 PACE NINETEEN World Views American Riots a . . Sadness, Fear and Glei With By United Press International ' America's friends would not cast the first stone. Her foes called it justice. And men in the street shook their heads in confusion, s World reaction to the racial riots that spread across the face of America ranged from sympathetic sadness to. I told you so." Obeying. . diplomacy's unwrit- tdn law, no government in the world expressed official reaction. But ' many government cpntrolled newspapers offered explanations and leveled accusations. And individuals talked. A Tokyo taxi driver, perplexed and bewildered by the news he : had been reading, expressed how many citizens iround the world felt. "I don't understand you Americans," he said. "Over there the white people and black people fight and over here you drink together." The Times of London said, "Almost every American city now is riot prone because of unsanitary conditions, social rather than physical, . which exists in most American cities." In Holland, the newspaper Nieuwe Rotterdamse Courant echoed some American charges that politics had played into the riots. "It is regretable that race rioting' has become subject to party-political struggles." JOHNSON LOOKS SLY AND CYNICAL The Austrian Socialist newspaper Arbeiter Zeitung hit on the same theme. It said President Johnson's commission to investigate the riots and his plea for prayer "demonstrate the same, strange mixture of political slyness, unlimited naivete, the cold cynicism which marks the Johnson era." ' The East German ' Communist Party Newspaper Neues Deutsch- land further attacked Johnson and tied the riots in with the Vietnam war. "According to the same, practice followed In Vietnam, Johnson's paratroopers, national guardsmen and police In Detroit have murdered indiscriminately." The Yugoslav Communist Party organ Kommunist observed, "A hundred years after the abolition of slavery, Amen can Negroes are sti'l compelled to fight for the most elementary civil rights, in a country which likes to refer to democratic freedoms." WORLD ALMANAC FACTS mmkf The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has the largest collection of. art in the-Western Hemisphere, says The World Almanac. It has over 365,000 works of art, . a reference and research collection of more than 155,000 books and a periodical section' with some 1,000 titles. . ' Copyright 19f7, Kowipaper .Enterprise Atari.

Previously, the Astronaut Corps had been open only to native-born Americans, A special ruling permitted the pair to apply for the nation's astronaut program, despite their foreign citizenships at the time they applied. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) confirmed that all five men identified are' in final running for the new astronaut group.
