He said the committee report would permit only the charge and identifying Information to be released until the trial. "The trial might be months away and the defendant could be simply jailed and forgotten," Ragan said. "Censorship and secrecy need but little encouragement to flourish. Our historical experience, of an open society could well go for naught if such restrictions on the public's right to know are not vigorously resisted," Ragan said.

Judge Herbert G. Paschen also ordered a hearing Nov. 28 on Speck's competency to stand trial and took under advisement a motion for a change of venue Gerald Getty Jr., public defender of Cook County and the court-appointed defense counsel requested dismissal of the indictments or a change in the locale of the trial. Getty contended prejudicial publicity influenced the grand jury to return the indictments against Speck. Judge Paschen said he would determine whether to gi-ant a change of venue after the Nov. 28 competency hearing. The judge also warned Getty and William Martin, assistant state's attorney, not to discuss tlie case with members of the news media. "If there's ever going to be a trial, we'll have to have an interim of quiet," Judge Paschen said. "I ask," he added, "that these certain matters not be rehashed, republished and, in a sense, re- advertised." Getty cai-ried newspaper clippings, radio tapes and photo- g:-aphs into court to support his claim of prejudicial publicity. A jury will be impaneled Nov. 28 to hear reports from six psychiatrists and psychologists who examined Speck at the request of the defense. Getty did not request a com- P 'jtency hearing, but Judge Paschen said he was "duty-bound" Morkets Mt. Vernon Hog Market Prices paid until 12:30 p.m. today were unchanged.

Johnson, however, conversed with Eisenhower in a voice clearly audible to photographers summoned to record the vent. The President was up before dawn today and moved to a chair without assistance, 1o eat breakfast. Eisenhower arrived two hours later. Upon leaving the hospital, Eisenhower likened these to times of ci-isis, because of the Viet Nam war, and said that at such a moment in histoi-j', he intended to support the President. The White House said Johnson awoke at 5:45 a.m. Johnson's 32nd Anniversarj' It was the 32nd wedding anniversary of the President, and Elsenhower was asked by newsmen as he came in if he had dropped by to offer congratulations on that event. "Is it today?" the former chief executive responded. Johnson had a breakfast of melon balls, cTeamed chipped beef, toast and tea. Mrs. Johnson and the White House physician. Navy Capt. Lay Fox, spent the night in the President's suite. Johnson went to sleep after midnight, after doing some official reading, and awoke briefly about 3 a.m. The morning medical report said his doctors were "pleased with his moderate use of his voice, his activity in his mom.

Sheppard had handed his billfold to Bailey, in a gesture of resignation should the verdict go against him and he be returned to jail. Jury Foreman Ralph J. Vich- ill, 33, a General Electric Co. engineer, said the jm-y never considered first-degree manslaughter as an alternative to second-degi-ee murder. He said, "It was a question of guilty or not guilty" as chai-ged. "I had tlie impression he was not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," Vichill added. New Lakefront Home At the news conference, Ariane said of the veredict: "It's a great satisfaction of course. It's so new now, tliough." She said .she hopes to bring her daughter here from Germany to live in a lakefront home they recently bought a mile from the house where Marilyn Sheppai-d was slain. "Had you two made any plans if the verdict had gone the other way?" she was asked. "Yes, slie said. Then her voice broke, tears came and she buried Jier face in Sheppard's shoulder. She said no more.

The stimulation of President Johnson's successful surgery had worn itself out and there was nothing much in the way of fresh news to counteract the natural disposition to take profits. The trend was lower among rails, electronics, aurlines, aerospace issues, chemicals, rubbers, oils and many other groups. Motors edged lower on balance and steels were narrowly mixed, unchanged for leading issues. The market was higher at the opening but soon turned mixed and then lower. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was off 3.89 at 816.98. The glamor stocks in electronics, office equipment, airlines and aerospace began to slide more rapidly than the older industrials as trading continued in the afternoon.

The crackdown was announced in advance and the dealers moved much of their stock beforeliand. Vietnamese police moved in early in the morning, dragged some of the goods into small piles and poured gasoline over them, nothing, foodstuffs and toilet articles went up in flames. Bottles of whisky were smashed and cans of beer and insecticide wer« ripped open with bayonets. The articles seized and destroyed were only a small part of the stocks that formerly were spread along the curbs of the streets near the U.S. Embassy, nearly choking oft movement along the sidewalks. The police action was aimed chiefly at shutting down the sale of Illicit goods obtained from U.S. Post Exchanges and commissaries. Some of this was stolen before it reached the American installations, while some was brought or bartered from U.S. servicemen. The sidewalk merchants also offered goods imported from Hong Kong and Japan as well as locally manufactured products. "Made in America" labels on some of the items — whisky bottles bearing PX stamps, for example—often were phony. "Things sell a lot better if they think they come from America," one street vendor said recently. Although the South Vietnamese government ordered the crackdown, American authorities are known to be concerned over the operation of what is euphemistically called the "open market." The section raided today was only one of four black market areas operating in Saigon, but Its location in the heart of the downtown area so close to the U.S. Embassy was particularly embarrassing. It was generally believed that PX Alley soon would be back in operation, although perhaps in a more discreet location.

Heavy accumulations of creosote on the ground and equlp- Mr. Shipp's services were terminated, the OEO would no longer provide financial assistance to the community action program in the two counties," Mrs. Igo said. ."It was only then that Neal Morgan, director of the two-county agency, and I sent a letter to Mr. Shipp. asking for his resignation by October 15. We were faced with the prospect of the closing of the anti-poverty program and we felt we must act. We feel that, in its first year, the anti-poverty program has been a fine project in both counties and should not be terminated." Director Morgan said he accompanied Shipp to the OEO office meeting in Chicago in October and sat in on the discus sion. He said he heard Shipp tell tlie officials that he spent two or three hours a day, two or three days a week, on the affairs of the motor company in Centralia. Morgan said that Shipp told him he planned to resign by October 15, but later changed his mind. The Marion county members of the committee rallied behind Shipp and Congi-essman George Shipley, who serves that distinct of Illinois, joined the fight to save Shipp's job. On October 15 the Marion county group sent a letter to the Chicago office, I 'eque.'^ting that the order terminating Shipp's J employment be rescinded. "Othei-wise," the letter said, "we have no alternative but for Marion county to regretfully withdraw from the Jefferson-Marion County C:AA , Inc., thereby making this agency ineligible for further grants, and thus bringing an untimely end to one of the most progressive and successful programs in southern Dljnois." The letter said that Shipp had been asked to i-esign without the Marion county committee's knowledge and asked that the group be furnished the name of the pei-son or persons who are dissatisfied with the assistant director. The letter said the Marion county group had complete knowledge of Shipp's activities when he was appointed,, "He has been available for the pursuit of this program any and all hours that was necessary," the letter said. "He- has also made his services available to oQxer governmental agencies, civic and fraternal organizations, schools and churches, for development of the educational programs . He has never failed to perform his duties assigned to him by the director or officers of the CAA." Mrs. Igo said that, after receiving the letter from the Chicago office requesting termination of Shipp's job, she called a special meeting of the Marion ty committee, at the Marion county court house in Salem. The Jefferson county group went to Salem but not a single member from Marion county attended the meeting, she said. Then she said, another meeting was called for October 31, In the Jefferon county court house in Mt. Vernon. Only one of the 20 Marion county members appeared, and he asked that the meeting be adjourned because of lack of a quoi-um. Attorney Lawrence J. Starman legal counsel for the two-county Coeds Pay $100 Fine In Pennies DENVER, Colo, (AP) — Two pretty girls paid a $100 traffic fine In Coun^ Court Wednesday with 10,000 pennies, but it took longer than they planned. Clerk Orville Holben ordered the girls to put the name Shelly Hotn, a, on each of the 20O rolls of 90 pennies. That took an hour. Miss Horn and Stephanie Allan, 18, each lugged a cosmetic case filled with the pennies into the clerk's office to pay Miss Horn's fine for a second offense of driving without a license. "I didn't think it was fair for them to fine me $100," Miss Horn said, "so I wanted to do something to get even." After Holben's order. Miss Horn, near teari, said. "You don't have people write theh: name and address on dollar bills." "We know how much a $1 bill is worth." Holben told her. "We don't know how many pennies are in each of the rolls." a delay in taking action would jeopardize the entire anti-poverty program in both counties. The motion to adjoum died for want of a second. The Jefferson county members then voted unanimously to terminate Shipp's services. Mrs. Igo also took exception today to a statement in the Salem newspaper concerning slgn- of the payroll checks for Jefferson and Marion county employees. The newspaper article said that Marion county members of the committee not only instructed Shipp not to. submit his resignation but thty further decided that the committee treasurer, Gerald Sinclair of Salem, should not countersign any more pay checks lor the director until the dispute was cleared up. The Salem paper reported that Mrs. Igo went ahead and signed the checks and that the payroll has been met "It is true that the paj'roU has been met," Mrs. Igo said. "The checks were properly signed. There are four bonded treasurers of the twoKMunty committee, including Mr. Sinclah-. Any of the four are authorized to countersign payroll checks and 1, as president, am also authorized to sign checks. The payroll checks in question were signed by me and by one of the other treasurers, and were legal in every respect" As late as a few days ago Marlon county members of the committee said they had not received an answer to their letter to the C:hicago office, asking that Shipp be retained as assistant director. And that apparently, is where the dispute stands today. NOVEMBER 2t SlU Coach To Speak At Mt: V.
