Tourist Guides Asked to Avoid Jackie's Hotel NEW YORK ^-Sightseeing bus guides have been asked not to call attention to the hotel m . which Mrs. John F. Kennedy will live when she moves here this fall. Cit.y License Commissioner Joseph C. DiCarlo made the request Tuesday, saying: "The late president is entitled to the full dignity she deserves." Crowds of tourists outside her Washington, D.C., home apparently were one of the reasons Mrs. Kennedy decided to move to New York City.

PHOTOGRAPHED mi BATON ROUGE (AP) ~ An attack on a state law providing for segregated facilities in jails was launched in state court here by a Negro attorney. Attorney Murphy Bell filed habeas corpus proceedings Tuesday to free three Negroes serving sentences in the East Baton Rouge Parish jail following their conviction on simple battery charges in connection with a demonstration at City Park swimming pool last summer. The three, Pearl Lee George, James F. Williams and Sam Green, were charged with attacking police officers who broke up a riot at the pool. Bell, in three identical suits, claimed the trio is illegally detained because the state statute providing for separate facilities "if the prison is used for both sexes and the white and Negro races" violates the new Civil Rights Act and the 14th Amendment. State Dist. Judge C. A. Barnett said he would hold a hearing in the matter next Tuesday. Meanwhile it was disclosed that two young white law students are working in Bell's Bat,on Rouge office as volunteers. They are among 75 law students working as unpaid volunteers in the south this summer under the auspices of tho Law Stu- fornia law school student and Peter Teachout of Morltpelier, Vt., a Harvard law student, dents' Civil Rights Research Council. The two are Al Katz of San Francisco, a University of Cali- At New Roads, Police Chief Fernand Langlois denied a report by the Congress of Racial Equality that a Negro was beaten while trying to desegregate a swimming pool Tuesday. Langlois said several Negroes tried to enter the pool but were turned away when the manager said the facility was closing for the day. Earlier, Ronnie Moore, a CORE field secretary, had charged that Dave Kramer, a CORE worker on his staff, was beaten by a group of white men but that the fight was broken up by four deputy sheriffs who arrived on the scene. Moore said his group had met with refusals for service at three restaurants, one hotel, three service stations and the public swimming pool. He said the only successful test of the new civil rights law had been at the New Roads public library where his staff workers had obtained 14 library cards. "The tests will continue in New Roads until we are assured SUPER MARKET 104 NORTH SHATTUCK STREET FULLY DRESSED FRYERS c HICKORY SMOKED FRESH GROUND MEAT 3 IBS. $ 1.

Monroe, Talhiiah, Jonesboro and Independence. Moore said his group would also go to various points in Plaquemines Parish, stronghold of segregation leader Leander H. Perez Sr. In New Orleans, a special three-judge federal court ordered attorneys to submit written briefs in the contempt action brought by the Justice Department agiinst Plaquemines Parish voter registrar Mary Ethel Fox. The court had been scheduled to hear arguments in the case Tuesday, but attorneys agreed on submission of written briefs. The Justice Department contends that Miss Fox violated a Jan. 28 decree issued by tho special court which unjoined the use of multiple question "citizenship" tests in voter registration. The injunction had also ordered that registrars in 21 parishes should submit monthly reports on registrations. Quints' Parents Expecting Eleventh Child ABERDEEN, S.D.
