Un-American Activities probe moved by judge CHICAGO (UPI) — An abandoned court building was pre pared ha.slily today for hearings of the House Un-.American Ac tivities Committee, which was denied use of Chicago's new federal building. Protests against the hearings into alleged Communist activities next week increased. iThe Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights, a liberal group, promptly switched its piclieting I plans to the old building and said at least 30 organizations planned to protest. The American Civil Liberties Union charged the committee had slandered 11 subpenaed witnesses and urged House Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., to cancel the hearings. Chief Judge William J. Campbell of the U. S. District Court withdrew the House committee's permit to use the new federal building, located in the j heart of Chicago's downtown "Loop." on grounds that demonstrations would disrupt regular federal business. "Wlien I gave permission, 1 had no idea the congressional hearings would create such a nuisance." Campbell said. He ordered the hearings, scheduled next Tuesday through Thursday, moved to the old federal appeals court building located in a residential area of tall apartment buildings on fashionable Lakeshore Drive. The building, abandoned when the new federal building opened last year, looked desolate today. Weeds and grass stood nearly a foot high in its yard.

U.S. may use troops to keep Dominicans apart UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (UPI) — .Ambassador Adali E. Stevenson told the U. N.

Stevenson said he had no official confirmation that the Dominican junta had rejected appeals to extend the 24 - hour truce which halted the shooting at noon (1 p.m. EDT) Friday. But U. N. Secretary General Thant said reports from his representative on the scene "show that the situation is ominous." Stevenson told the council that according to information he had received the forces of rebel leader Col. Francisco Caamano Deno are now concentrated south of the supply corridor held by U. S. troops in the middle of Santo Domingo. "United States and OAS 'Organization of American States) forces will continue to enforce — by force if necessary — any crossing of the supply corridor or attack from the sea," he said. The U. S. has more than 21,000 paratroopers and Marines in Santo Dommgo. The U.S. stand became known less than 24 hours after it was announced that President Johnson was ready to withdraw approximately 1,700 of the American troops in Santo Domingo as soon as a 1,250-man contingent from Brazil arrived tlierc as part of an inter-.American peace keeping force. The total number of U. S. troops scheduled to be withdrawn was to be about equal to the number of troops made available for the 0.\S force byj Brazil, Nicaragua, Costa Ricaj and Honduras. The Brazilian government announced Friday it would send its troops into the Dominican Republic. Honduras already has about 250 soldiers in, the capital of Santo Domingo. Nicaragua has sent in about 170 troops and Costa Rica has sent 20 men. 1 SANTO DOMINGO (UPI) —; Junta leader Maj. Gen.

Jose .Antonio Mayobre, U.N. representative, and Jose .'\nton- io Mora, secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), were meeting with Imbert when the announcement was made.

Senator insists there is no true coin shortage W.ASHINGTON (UPI)— Sen. Alan Bible, D-Nev., insisted Friday that there was no "true coin shortage" but introduced legislation intended cure an "artificial shortage." Bible said his bill was intended to halt hoarding, speculation and hoarding silver dollars and other coins. "It is my contention that no true coin shortage exists," he told the Senate. "However, I am well aware, as are others, that serious dislocations have occurred and that hoarding and speculating have caused artificial shortages which have become real shortages in the commercial channels of trade." Bible said his bill would make it illegal to melt down silver coins, forbid their use as security for loans, halt their export from the country and outlaw the accumulation of all but "rare" coins. The Nevada Democrat's biU followed the announcement last week by President Johnson that 45 million silver dollars authorized by Congress under pressure by western lawmakers would shortly be minted. Senators balk at confirming Bishop Kennedy SACRAMENTO (UPI) Bishop Gerald Kennedy of Los A.ngeles has been asked to appear June 11 before the Senate Rules Committee, which balked at confirming his reappointment to the state Board of Education.

Burns, D-Fresno, declined to release Kennedy's remarks, saying they were "confidential." Asked for details. Burns said, "We don't know, that's what we want to get him in here for." In Oceanside, board president Thomas W. Braden — himself the subject of confirmation controversy in 1953 — praised Kennedy for "great wisdom" and "hours of liard work." "He is eminently qualified to serve on the board and I trust that the Senat.? will confirm his reappointment," Braden said.

(UPI) .A crowd ef more than 7,000 persons huddled in blankets and sleeping bags during an all-night vigil on a wind-swept Softball field as the Univrsity of California's marathon Viet Nam "teach-in" entered its second day today. The predominantely student audience was quiet and atten- jtive. sipping coffee through I chattering teeth as speaker after speaker claimbed a makeshift platform to criticize the U. S. policy in Viet Nam. The "Viet Nam Day" program started at noon Friday and was scheduled to last until e of Day tonight. It was originally advertised as a community meet- mg on the subject of Viet Nam. But the featured speakers were heavily critical of the Southeast Asia situation, and there w a s little pro and con debating. The program became more of a protest than a debate after the State Department decided against sending representatives to explain the U. S. Vietnamese I policy. The situation grew bitter earlier this week when two Berkeley professors withdrew from the program, claiming it was "rigged" against the Johnson administration. Postal rate hike proposed W.ASHINGTON (UPI) — A high level-study group has recommended an across-the-board increase in postal rates to hip wipe out the post office's $762 million yearly deficit.

Senate votes record budget S.ACR.AMENTO (UPI) — A record - shattering state budget totaling 54,162,830,000 was ready for Assembly action. The spending program for the fiscal year beginning July 1 was pushed from the lower chamber Ways and Means Committee Friday night after a marathon day - long hearing. Both houses of the legislature were in recess for thej weekend and neither appeared! in any particular rush to press for fast floor action on the program. The budget gives Gov. Edmund G. Brown, pushing for his seventh state budget, virtually all he asked to operate state government for the next- fiscal year-including his "bare bones" minimum program and his "phase 11" plan to boost state services. The Senate, meanwhile, was lagging slightly behind. The upper chamber's version of the budget isn't expected to be adopted before the Assembly acts, probably not for about 10 days. Assemblyman Robert W. Crown, D-Alameda, ways and means chairman, told newsmen he would give Republicans time to study the spending program before he calls for a floor vote. Republican leaders have criticized the budget as too high. In action Friday, the committee suddenly killed Brown's plans for launching a state financed anti - smoking campaign by trimming $250,000 from the budget intended to finance tlie program. But in line with the governor's pressure for traffic safety the committee added $1.4 million to allow the state to hire 150 new highway patrolmen. The basic budget contained appropriations for 150 additional patrolmen and Friday's action would boost the total to 300. Other action in the legislature: Drivers - The Senate unanimously passed a bill to take away the drivers' licenses of persons convicted of drunken driving. The bill, by Sen. Ran­ dolph Collier, D-Yreka, now goes to the Assembly. In a related action, the upper chamber's Transportation (Committee adopted another Collier- authored bill to double the manpower of the state highway patrol by the end of 1968. The program would be financed j through a S3 increase in automobile registration fees by 1968. Realtors - The Senate passed a bill allowing the state to suspend or revoke the license of a realtor who takes advantage of the entry of a minority family into a neighborhood to induce "panic sales" of homes. The bill, by Sen. George Miller Jr., D-Martinez, now goes to the Assembly.
