It was the second consecutive day the hearings had been disrupted by demonstrators.

Brown, who presided at the murder trial of Jack Ruby, said Tuesday he believes tlie public does net favor the execution of jRuby and that he doubts the .slayer of Lee Harvey Oswald will die hi the Texas electric chair. ".\ftcr all," said Brown, "we are talking about a man who killed the man who assassinated President Kennedy.'' Brown's statements came during a day of i-elati\-e inactivity in the defense's attempts to have a date set for Ruby's sanity hearing. Visiting Judge Louis Holland of Montague, Tex., ruled Monday that Ruby would have a sanity trial, and it was tliought he might have set a date Tuesday. But the defense asked for a delay to prepare further legal moves and Holland granted the request. The judge said he would reconvene court today to see if the defense was ready. Holland also said he would hold a hearing beginning June 1 7 on the defense claims that j Judge Brown disqualified himself from tlie Ruby sanity trial openmg session. Nineteen persons were arrest cd Tuesday in sometimes tumultuous demonstrations outside the former U. S. Court of -Appeals building where the hearings are being held.

She said a major function of the party during those years was to infiltrate Negro organizations, churches and trade unions. However, she said success was limited.

In a letter to the House Speaker and Senate president, Johnson said he was transmitting a package of four bills designed to beautify the 250,000 mUes of interstate and primary highways. Two of the bills would strengthen controls on outdoor advertising and junkyards within view of motorists. The President proposed that stales — as a condition to receiving federal highway grants after Jan. 1, 1968—control outdoor advertising along sections of highways not zoned or used predominantely for commercial or industrial purposes. In general, such controls would require that no new advertising signs be erected in areas within 1,000 feet of the pavement and visible to pass- mg motorists. Present billboards would have to be removed by July 1. 1970. While paj-ing tribute to advertising as having "an ini- said.

Johnson said that beautifying side roads "will add immensely to the value of our highway system" by providing access to lakes and forests, picnic and historical areas, beaches and mountain trails.

No new junkyards could be established in the 1,000-foot re- sti'icted area and existing junkyards w^ould have to be screened or removed by July 1, 1970. "We must recognize, both in the case of junkyards and outdoor advertising, that some states lack adequate police powers for control," Johnson to acquire land alongside highways for enhancing scenic beauty. For some years, he said, states have been permitted to do tills but have used Uie authority only rarely. Another proposal was that each state be required to use one-third of federal aid now received for secondary roads to construct scenic roads, and access to scenic and recreational areas, and to provide landscape and roadside de- son said, an estimated $3.9 billion will he spent on federal- aid highways. He called this "an investment in the future of America." The President proposed spending a potential $220 million a year on the highway beautification program. This would include up to S120 million brought in by the 3 per cent state use requirement and SlOO million for county and city officials to build rest areas, scenic drives and recreation sites.

At least three persons were cut by flying glass. More twisters or near-tornadoes struck in Wisconsin, Missouri and Oklalioma. At O'Hare Airport, a Flying Tigers Airlines cargo plane was flipped over on the runway.

Ohio (UPI) — Proposed revisions to modernize the 300-year-old confession of faith of the United Presbyterian Church in tlie U.S.A. have cleared the first hurdle, despite efforts of minority conservatives. By a 643-110 vote, delegates to the 177th General .Assembly agreed late Tuesday to accept the report of the committee wiiich drafted tlte new confession over a seven-year period. The delegates also endorsed recommendations commending the 4,200-word document to the 3.3 million members for study, authorized appointment of a 15- member committee to consider amendments to the document and asked that the original committee continue as consultants to the new committee. The new group will put its recommendations before the nest genera] assembly in 1968, If its report is approved, the new statement of faith will go to the church's 195 presbyteries for a vote. If approved by a two-thirds majority, the document w-iU go before the 1967 assembly for final action. Congress permit proceedings on the House and Senate floors to be broadcast and telecast.

Earlier, the space agency announced that Tom Stafford %vould be the fu-st to try it on flight of Gemini-6 set for October. Issues warning on astronaut flight danger ST. LOUIS (UPI) — Eight days in advance of the next scheduled U.S. manned space flight an official today issued this warning: "Let us not expect our space program to proceed indefinitely without some tragedy involving our astronauts." The official was- Dr. Edward C. Welsh, executive secretary of the National Aeronautics and Space Council. He addressed the fifth national conference on the peaceful uses of space. Astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. WTiite II are scheduled to take off June 3 on a four-day flight aboard the Gemini-4 spacecraft. Welsh did not mention this or any other specific flight.

If he takes that one step, he writes liis own chapter in the history books of the space age. If he doesn't, America forfeits to the Soviet Union another two-month lead in a critical area of manned conquest of space. Such is the decision that faces rookie U.S. .Astronaut Edward H. White when, on the morning of Jime 3, he opens tlie righthand hatch of his orbiting Gemini-4 capsule, stands up in his scat and debates wiiether to take America's first "walk in space." The federal space agency left it squarely up to While wiien .Associate .Administrator Robert Seamans gave the Gemtni-4 mission a "go aliead" Tuesday to attempt the nation's first extravehicular actirity in space. If White decides "yes," he will push away from the doorway to his 7,000-pound capsule and—at tlie end of a nylon safety line—float as far as 25 feet in an orbit of his own. Back inside the capsule, command pilot James Mc Divitt will swivel the capsule so it faces White and, through the triangular window, take movie pictures of his hovering buddy. After about 12 minutes of floating aroimd as he and his capsule swing across the United States at 17,400 miles per hour. White will use the nylon tether to reel himself in. Or, as space agency Manned Spacecraft Center Director Robert R. Gilnith put it, "he'd better. This will not be the flrst "space walk." Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov did the same thing last March 18, when taken action on voting qualifications set up by the states. .A system of federal registrars would be created to prevent unfair discrimination . against Negroes in state and local voting. Southerners opposed the proposal with talk and efforts to amend it, but never mounted a full-fledged fllibuster. The key proviso of the Senate bill is a "trigger" mechanism which would automatically suspend literacy and other voting Qualification tests and sentl federal registration examiners into states and counties to sign up eligible Negro voters if necessary. The basic formula would hit Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana and South Carolina, plus some counties in North Carolma and Virginia and two remote Ala.skan districts. President Park returns with wife to Korea LOS ANGELES (UPI)-South Korea President Park Chung Hee and his wife flew home from here to Seoul today, end- mg a two - day visit to South- era California and a 10-day stay in the United States.
