Blyttievllle (Ark.) Courier News - Monday, April 8, IMS - Pap Fiv* Day of Mourning Noted Around World By HAY KOHN Associated Press Writer Many thousands of Negroes and whites eulogized Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at church services, outdoor observances quiet marches in cities and and (owns across the nation Sunday. The national day of mourning, as proclaimed by President Johnson, was noted around the world, including words by Pope Paul VI in Rome and soldiers gathered for a solemn service in a steel hut at Da Nang, Viet- nam. At Memphis, Tenn., where King was felled last Thursday by a sniper's bullet, the peaceful march he had planned for today was to be headed by aides and possibly his widow. Pope Paul, while celebrating Palm Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Basilica,.said of King, an exponent of nonviolence, "We shall associate his memory with that of the tragic story of the Passion of Christ." U. N. Secretary-General U Thant told some 2,500 persons at a memorial service in The Hague, the Netherlands: "I share the deep sense of shock with you." Thousands of New Engenders took part in marches and services. Boston University, where King earned his doctorate in theology, planned further memorial services for today and no classes Tuesday, when King will New Way to Handle Riots? By JOHN BECKLER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Down the mall from the bright bubble of the Capitol .dome to the brooding figure in the Lincoln Memorial,'Washington looks the same. But a deep change has taken place. A city that had been slowly hardening into two separate cities, one white and one black, has been made searingly aware it is one. How it reacts to this awareness may hold an answer {or other cities afflicted with racial troubles. One answer seems apparent: A cool and carefully planned response to looting and burning may be able to achieve results without the bloodshed and violence that marked last summer's riots in Newark and Detroit. In the early stages of the disorders in the capital, the out- numbered police were withdrawn from trouble areas so hey would not have to resort to ;unfire to protect themselves. Later, backed by federal roops, they moved forcibly but with restraint against the looters and rounded up curfew viol- aters by the droves. The result was a minimum of deaths and injuries and a massive 4,800 arrests. The performance of the District of Columbia jolice and the troops has drawn jraise from Atty. Gen. Ramsey Hark and is likely to set a pat- ;ern for the police in other cities. : - .'

Appeals for food for the persons living in the riot area, where food stores were either burned, looted or locked up, brought a tremendous outpouring from the white areas. "This is the real beginning of the real meaning of the life of Martin Luther King," said a white civic leader active in the food drive, who was overwhelmed by the response. The Rev. Wyatt Walker, one of King's former aides, said, "In his memory today, take up the palm branch. We will open eyes blinded with hate and prejudice." In strife-torn Washington, where looting and burning followed King's assassination, a special service was held at the Roman Catholic National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Bishop John Spence of the archdiocese of Washington, told about 3,000 persons that King was "a martyr, a man who died for the Christian precept of nonviolence." . Bishop Spence urged Negroes to "cease your violence" and advised whites to work toward ending prejudice, more, but a lack of money'has i A spokesman for Coletta be buried in Atlanta.

The calm was enforced by some 10,000 green-clad, helmeted soldiers who kept an armed vigil on the South and West sides where violence Friday and Saturday resulted in nine deaths and $10-million damage.
