TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CENTS Brazilian Heads Inter-American Force Segregation Law To Be Tested by CORE Officials Negroes Plan to Go Into City Park Today BOGALUSA, La. (AP) - The Congress of Racial Equality says it plans a quick test of segregation laws which the mayor has promised to wipe out. Michael Jones, CORE'S program director here, said a small group of Negroes would go into -the city park this afternoon. The park was the scene of racial violence last week in this papermill town which the Ku Klux Klan claims it dominates. Mayor Jesse H. Cutrer Jr. said the park will not be open. "Because of tensions built up by CORE and the incident in the'; park," Cutrer said, "the parks 1 are" closed and will remain j closed indefinitely." | The mayor said his pledge to lower racial barriers applied to "normal circumstances." He said circumstances are not normal now. * * * In an interview after announcing his decision to end segregation laws, Cutrer said, "I have to do what I think is right for the community and not worry about it." "You can't let those on the fringe lead," said Cutrer, 50, in the interview. "You have to work for the people in the middle. "All I can see, otherwise, isj chaos and violence and killing. I can't buy that." Two white Bogalusa residents were arrested early Sunday and charged with trying to burn the Negro church where civil rights leader James Farmer spoke Sunday night. After Farmer's speech, Ed Hollander, a Congress of Racial Equality field secretary, said a carload of whites fired at four Negroes leaving the rally in an auto. Police said they found nothing to substantiate the report. Segregation laws "are not constitutional and cannot be enforced," the mayor told Bogalusa residents in a radio address Sunday night. "In accordance with federal law, your Commission Council will open all public facilities to every citizen." * * * "Everyone," he added, "must recognize the fact that federal laws supersede state and city laws in the field of civil rights." Cutrer also sail', police would hire Negroes, and other departments of the city government would consider doing so. Bogalusa, a town of 23,000 in southeastern Louisiana, has been the scene of a Negro drive for equal job opportunities and desegregation. Weeks of demonstrations eased off through efforts of city, state and federal oficlals in negotiations with Negro leaders. Farmer, CORE'S national director who flew here after whites clashed with Negroes trying to integrate a city park last Thursday, pledged cooperation.

(AP) — The Saturn 1 super-rocket is 1 scheduled for its first after-dark launching Tuesday to continue a flurry of space activity that began Saturday with the successful Project Fire mission. Also on the firing line are an interplanetary probe on Friday and the four-day orbital ride of astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. White II on June 3. Florida missile watchers may see quite a spectacle as the Saturn 1, the world's most powerful rocket, pushes the Pegasus 2 meteoroid-detection satellite toward orbit. The launching is scheduled between 2:30 a.m. and 8:52 a.m. (EST). If the rocket gets off in darkness, the 300-foot exhaust flame from the eight-engine powerplant should be visible from much of Florida, weather permitting. The Pegasus 2 satellite Is to unfoid two wing-like panels to a span of 96 feet to offer a broad target for meteoroids, particles which race through space with incredible speed. These bits of space dust, mostly remnants of disintegrated comets, are a possible hazard for astronauts. The launching of the third in the Intreplanetary Monitoring Platform series is set for 6:30 a.m. Friday. A Delta rocket is to hurl the payload into an eccentric orbit ranging from 120 to 130,000 miles high to investigate cosmic rays, magnetic fields and solar winds. Astronauts McDivitt and White, both Air Force majors, are rehearsing for their 97-hour, 50-minute flight, whose major goal is to determine if man suffers mental or physical degradation during long exposure to the space environment. at 9 this morning, to signal the start of program. Mayor Paul Santini has declared today a legal holiday at Hurley and a full schedule of activities is planned to mark the occasion. Wisconsin Gov. Warren P. Knowles arrived at Hurley late this morning to participate In the activities and ins p e c t the progress made on the v a r ious projects. This is the first time an attempt has been made to paint an entire city at one time and Hurley is receiving nation-wi de publicity on the event. A num- 1 her of television stations and newspaper wire services had representatives on hand today to record the activities. Painting is scheduled to continue throughout the summer. Almost 600 persons, representing about 90 per cent of the persons owning Hurley buildi n g s have registered for paint, all of which will be donated by the association. It is expected that the remainder of the paint will be delivered to Hurley in the near future. Communist Viet Nam plot to steer South toward neutralism and eventually communism. LBJ Appeals To Employers WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson has appealed to the nation's employers to find work for the estimated 2 million youngsters who will be seeking summer jobs this year. For some of them, the President said Saturday, a summer •job might make the difference between returning to school in the fall or becoming a dropout. Johnson said all federal departments and agencies have been directed to try to place one trainee for every 100 employes on their present payroll. This. he said, would mean about 25,000 jobs.

The Detroit man was the first witness at a hearing to determine who will be the lawyers for the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald. The question of insanity is a key one in the struggle between the lawyers since Jack Ruby's original attorneys contend the defendant cannot fire them because he is mentally unsound. Earl Ruby made the statement on his brother's mental condition under cross-examination by Joe Tonahill, whom the family is seeking to oust from i to save the forests and the soil.' child can attack and contribute to defeating." The First Lady spoke at a meeting summoned to promote President Johnson's program for making America more beautiful. It has been reported that before the conference ends it probably will ask Johnson to set up efforts to carry out the program. One of its first tasks might be a check of federal grants to see if the government is getting its money's worth in beautification projects. * * * Most of the work for this two- day conference was done beforehand in almost a year of task-force operations. May recommendations were prepared in advance churned out sessions of the 15 panels. Chairman Laurance Rockefeller convening the opening session, said, "Natural beauty must be an integral part of our •national life. It cannot be a frill or afterthought or a luxury subject to the red pencil of accountants, public or private." Rockefeller said in his prepared speech that natural beauty must be a vital part of how Americans build their country and be predicted it will literally be rebuilt in the next 40 years.

A 24-hour truce it arranged to evacuate dead and wounded expired at noon Saturday, but fighting did not resume. ^ An OAS spokesman said the rebel leader, Col Francisco Caamano Deno, and the junta chief, Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera, had agreed, not to open fire unless attacked. The cease-fire seemed to b* working, and Sunday was one of the quietest days in Santo Domingo since the outbreak of tht revolt that toppled the government of Donald Reid Cabral. The military situation reached a stalemate last week after Junta troops broke rebel resistance in the city's northern suburbs. This left the rebels in control of a downtown area 12 city blocks long and 8 blocks wide cordoned off by U.S. troops. The United states has ordered Its troops not to allow either side across Its lines. "The military civil war Is over," said one diplomat here, "but the civil war will continue in politics." Imbert said in a radio speech that the rebels were facing "rapid exhaustion." U.S. and OAS negotiators were still trying to get agreement from the rebel and Junta leaders for a government representing all political factions except Communists and right-wing extremists. * * * U.S. negotiator McGeorge Bundy was reported pressing for a government headed by Antonio Guzman, minister of agriculture under ex-President Juan Bosch.
