As co-chairman of me diocese, Gillard will supervise membership and insurance within the 40 councils that comprise the western district.

A delegation of four Lake Charles men was in New York City this week, apparently in connection with Lake Charles port and industrial business. The group left Lake Charles on Tuesday in an Eastern Airlines plane. Included was Clyde B. Stephens, new president of the i Lake Charles dock board. It was understood to be his first ,official trip for (he board since his recent appointment by Gov, John J. McKeithen to the \ board and subsequent election ! as its president. i Others in the group were Elmer E. Shutts, dock board engineer: James R. St. Dizier, dock board attorney, and Marvin Crowe, director of the Calcasieu Industrial Development Board. Pat H. Chaffin, board member who was succeeded as president by Stephens, replying to an inquiry from the Lake Charles American Press, said "they are probably discussing contracts with the companies which use the port's coke plant." The companies are Union Carbide and National Carbon Co. Port Director John H. Grob, recently put on notice by Stephens that he is to be replaced as director, said he did not know \vhat the trip was for when asked about it. A Lake Charles couple, John K. Michon and his wife Judy, have filed a suit asking $7,032 damages from an insurance company as the result of a fire truck-auto crash January 1, this year. The Michons claim that they were driving north on Ryan Street, about 11:50 that morning, with a green light when a fire truck collided with their car being driven by Michon. Named as defendant in the action was Hartford Accident and Indemnity Co., liability insurers for the city of Lake Charles. Claude Fuselier, city fireman, \yas driver of the truck at the time and was thrown from the fire truck to the roadway, the suit said.

Amendment By Long Adopted State Purchases Bypass Property The Louisiana Highway Department acquired a parcel of property in the South Lake Charles bypass route from Sophia Camille Jessen, of Lake Charles for $6,750, according to a deed filed today. Located in the Jessen Subdivision, south of Prien Lake Road and between Texas Street and Warren Avenue the property contains 69,778 square feet. WASHINGTON (Spl.) - An amendment proposed by Sen. Russell Long (D-La.) to the civil rights bill was adopted by voice vote in the Senate late Wednesday. The amendment provides that a defendant can be found guilty of criminal contempt only if his act of discrimination has been "intentional." Explaining the change, Sen.' Long said, "This important alteration means that no defendant accused under these sections can be found guilty for discriminatory actions which are accidental, unintentional, or inadvertent. "Without the change, several of the titles of this bill might have been subject to grave abuses. People who were entirely free of any criminal intent might have been given severe fines and jail sentences. II. is gratifying that the Senate had the good judgment to adopt this final amendment." Thus far, only five Southern attempts to amend the far-reaching bill have been successful. Three of these fine amendments were proposed by Sen. Long. In 'Freak 7 Acc/denf A freak accident involving a cement mixer and a cement truck is the basis of a $10.386 damage suit filed in 14th Judicial District Court by Judge Kilchrist, against a fellow work- !er for a local construction company. | K i I c li r i s t, in his petition, states that on March 25, this year, he was driving a cement truck for FIcnnikcn Construction Co., and had it under a cement mixer when the accident, happened. He claims that, a fellow em- ploye Aden N. Devcreaux, operating the cement mixer for Flenniken, used the lifting apparatus to pick up the rear of his truck and raise it to a height of C-8 feet then releasing it. A resulting drop caused Kilchrist to receive head and neck injuries, the suit said. Named as defendant along with Dove- reaux was Argonaut Insurance Co., insurer for Flenniken.
