With the arrival of the soldiers, the mob at first pressed forward. Then soldiers pointed their rifles, machine guns, and pistols at the advancing throng and the crowd stopped. Within this time, however, the vanguard of the mob had moved so close to the building that some of them were able to throw heavy firecrackers or dynamite caps into the building. Soldiers Ring Area The military vehicles were drawn up in a defense line around the apartment building and the area was ringed with soldiers. Hodgin commanded the five companies, made up of rifle and heavy weapons units of the 129th infantry. The outfits were mobil-izpd in Elffin. Aurora. Waukegan, Woodstock, and Joliet within a few hours after Stevenson ordered martial law in the trouble area. Stevenson acted after Sherif Babb and First Assistant States Atty. Edwin.T. Breen notified him that local authorities no longer were able to maintain law and order." This was based on the outbreak Wednesday night in which vandals broke into the flat building, destroyed furniture and equipment, and burned some of the furnishings. Included in the furniture destroyed was some belonging to Harvey E. Clark Jr., 29, Negro, a CTA bus driver, who had rented a third floor apartment for him and his family. His furniture was moved into the flat Tuesday, but he did not take occupancy. Biographical material on the Clark family will be found in a Clar Tifaraily icill be found in an adjoining column. Flans to Withdraw During Wednesday night's disorders, Clark sent word that he would withdraw from his planned rnntn l nf th anartment. at least temporarily. This was announced on a loudspeaker truck at the scene but failed to halt the rioting. Policeman Robert Canik, 25, was hit in the head with a brick and severely injured. Wpnrv J. Sandusky, town presi dent of Cicero, who was at a lake spot near Antioch, Lake county, during' Wednesday night's rioting, returned to Cicero last night. He said he went to Antioch Wednesday after his police chief, Irvin Konovsky, assured him local police, aided by sherif's police, could handle the situation. Sandusky said he communicated with Gov. Stevenson yesterday afternoon and had assured the governor that the disorders could be quelled by local law enforcing agencies. In view of the increasing gravity of the situation, Sandusky said, he decided to return to Cicero. Seek Former Owner United States deputy marshals were seeking Mrs. Camille De Rose, former owner of the apartment building, to serve her with a writ to keep her from leaving the jurisdiction of the federal District court in this area. She recently was ordered to pay $350 for overcharges to tenants, and had been involved in other rent violation cases involving between $3,000 and $4,000. Records show that after the government started litigation against her two months ago, interest in the trust which controls the building was transferred from Mrs. De Rose to Jewell Young, 4757 South Park way. On June 26, District Judge John P. Barnes warned Cicero officials they would find themselves in serious trouble if they did not protect the Clark family. Earlier, the Clarks had sued the town of Cicero and its officials in District court for $200,000 damages, charging the officials joined in a racial discrimination conspiracy.

Clark Jr., the CTA bus driver who was prevented by Cicero rioters from moving his family into an apartment building in the suburb, is a university graduate and World War II veteran. Clark, 29, was born in Mississippi. After finishing high school, he entered Fisk university in Nashville, Tenn., where he majored in political science. While there, he married a fellow student, John-etta, now 26. They were married nine years ago and have two children, Michelle, 8, and Harvey III, 6, who were born in Nashville. Joins Army Air Force Clark left the university to join the army air forces in 1942, and was assigned as an aviation instructor at Tuskegee institute in Alabama. He served there and at two other southern fields until his discharge in 1945. Clark returned to finish his education at Fisk university under the GI bill of rights. At Fisk, Clark played baseball and was a member of the university debating team. Clark was graduated in 1949, brought his family to Chicago, and got a job as agent for an insurance company. He went to work for the CTA a year ago and moved his family to a four room apartment at 6725 St. Lawrence av. Member of Legion Clark is a member of the American Legion, his attorney, George C. Adams, 4757 South Park way, said. The Clarks moved all of their furniture and belongings into the Cicero apartment Tuesday. Adams said Mrs. Clark brought some valuable diamonds to the apartment but she does not know what happened to them. Adams last night quoted Clark as saying he was willing to return to Cicero and live there. " He doesn't believe Cicero residents can afford to deny him his civil rights after he made such a sacrifice and helped to win the war and to establish the safety of those who live in Cicero," Adams said. Adams said that the Clarks now have no home, having given up their St. Lawrence av. apartment. They found lodgings Tuesday night in a one room apartment at 921 E. 44th St., Adams said. Leaders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People met at 35 S. Dearborn st. with representatives of the Chicago Urban league and other interested groups. A mass meeting was planned within the next two weeks to raise funds to reestablish the Clarks. Move Causes Rioting (Story in adjoining column) I Harvey E.

Service New York, July 12 Charges that some schools and teachers are "pink" have been " an exceed-i n g 1 y difficult thing to understand," Ernest O. Melby, dean of the New York university school school of educa tion, said here today. $ fore 500 teach ers, attending an Me,b' educational "workshop" at the university, dedicated to helping them fight the "enemies" of public education. These " enemies " have been identified by the dean and other educational leaders as a handful of small organizations which criticize the teaching of socialism or communism and the use of slanted textbooks in schools. The organizations include the Employers Association of Chicago and the Conference of American Small Business Organizations, 407 S. Dearborn st., Chicago. Denies Knowing of Any Reds "I don't think I can name a single communist teacher and prove it," Dean Melby said. One of the teachers later asked William Jansen, New York City superintendent of schools, who has just fired several communist teachers, whether he agreed with Dean Melby's statement. Jansen, who was on the platform with Melby and 11 other leaders and guests of the "workshop," replied it was "difficult to say." He said he had evidence against several teachers who were fired as Communists and evidence against others who were cleared. He said that "few will face charges in the fall." Others on the platform attempted to show that the proven communist teachers in New York schools amounted to only one-thirtieth of 1 per cent of the 37,000 employed, but in the audience murmurs of "no," "no," were heard. Heads Defense Commission Richard B. Kennan, executive secretary of the defense commission of the National Education association, was chairman of the session. The N.E.A. commission has been leading a heavy propaganda fight against people and organizations which have criticized socialist and communist indoctrination in schools. - Kennan read a news story about the San Francisco convention of the Sons of the American Revolution, which charged Tuesday that schools are being used to bring about " social welfare type of state," that the leaders of the N. E. A. were engaged in vilifying tactics, and that a congressional investigation of " subversive teaching practices " was inevitable. Issues Challenge to S.A.K. Wherever you find these critics, you find a paranoid in the group," Kennan said. " I don't mean that the Sons of the American Revolution is a group of insane people. But I challenge the S.A.R. to produce evidence of any vilification on the part of any education association I represent. " It was not until they began to vilify that we began to fight back. We haven't used any name calling." Kennan later was shown a piece of his own commission's literature which referred to one of the " enemies " as a " fascist propagandist." He was asked whether this didn't constitute name calling. He replied that it was not name calling, but " a statement of fact." Get Envelope of Reprints All teachers at the " workshop " were furnished with an envelope of statements and reprints which Dr. Birthday Today -ry IT 'sT 'if Donald Iden (left) weighing temptation as he posed with hammer, mirror, and his twin brother, Ronald, in home at 3904 Dickens st. yesterday. itribune photoj Ronald Lew and Donald Lee Iden, twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Iden of 3904 Dickens av., will celebrate their fourth birthday today Friday, the 13th. This" is the first time that a Friday has popped up on their birthday, Mrs. Iden reported. She plans a party this evening for the children, the only ones in the Iden family. Since the twins were born on the 13th, Mrs. Iden gave them names with 13 letters. Mrs. Iden added that she isn't superstitious. Her husband is a policeman in the Summerdale district. Herbert B. Bruner, coordinator of the " workshop," said was prepared with the help of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, Jewish fraternal organization. Included in the package were reprints of New York Times and New York Herald-Tribune book reviews of "This Happened in Pasadena," a book which gives a very sympathetic account of the firing last year of Willard Goslin as Pasadena, Cal., school superintendent. Goslin was charged by parents with introducing leftist and " progressive " materials in Pasadena schools. O'CONNOR ACTS TO ADD 150 TO POLICE FORCE Police Commissioner O'Connor, taking advantage xf the city council's vote Wednesday increasing operating fund appropriations by $3,970,121, asked the civil service commission yesterday for the names of 150 men to be trained as policemen. He said the men are tentatively scheduled to start training July 23. O'Connor, who also said he hopes to add another 150 men to the force later this year, bared plans to hire 200 school crossing guards so more policemen will be freed for police duties. The guards, most of whom probably will be women, will be paid $30 a week for 20 hours work. Questionnaires are being prepared to screen likely applicants, and training will begin in police schools next month so the guards will be ready for the fall term, O'Connor said.
