2 - Section 1 CHICAGO TRIBUNE, FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 1964 trast to their role In the last -15 days of discussion. The leading roles were taken . by Mansfield, Dirksen and Sen Wayne Morse D., Ore. author of the motion to refer the bill to the judiciary committee with instructions that it report the bill back to the floor by April 8. Negroes in Galleries They performed before well-filled galleries that included members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, other civil rights organizations, and Malcolm X, .who recently split away from the Black Muslims to found a new Negro anti-white organization. The Senate met at 9 o'clock and Mansfield moved, as soon as the usual prayer was said, to act on the motion to take up the bill. The voting started at 9:20 a. m. and ended 30 minutes later after various members delayed it as long as possible to permit tardy colleagues to arrive and be recorded. All finally made it to the floor and voted, or had their positions recorded, with the exception of Sen. Pat McNamara fD., Mich.. When McNamara did arrive he was so irritated at the failure of his brethren to stall the vote until his arrival that he declined to have recorded the position he would have taken. Dirksen, Douglas Vote Aye . Voting for the motion were 41 Democrats and 26 Republicans. Against it were 17 Democrats, all from the south. Sen. Dirksen and Sen. Douglas D., El. voted for the motion. Two southerners against the motion, Sen. J. William Ful bright D., Ark. and Sen. John G. Tower R., Tex. were paired with Sen. Jennings Ran dolph D., W. Va. and Sen Gordon Allott R., Colo., who favored it. The five Republicans and seven Democrats who did not vote were recorded as for the motion, with the excep tion of McNamara. Thus, the position of 99 of the 100 senators was recorded. A close vote on the Morse motion had been expected, but many senators apparently decided they had had enough debate on procedural matters. Mansfield emphasized, in pleading with his colleagues to reject the motion, that if the bill was sent to committee, it would go back on the calendar when it returned, and it would have to be motioned up again. "For how many more days would we have to repeat the ordeal of the last 16 days?" Mansfield asked. "This would be an unconscionable delay an invitation to go back to the beginning and start all over again." Morse and Dirksen argued that hearings were necessary to show legislative intent when the court begin trying the issues involved in the 11-title bill, but on the showdown 34 Democrats and 16 Republicans voted for Mansfield's motion to table the motion, and 25 Democrats and 9 Republicans against it. Time Needed for Study Dirksen said that all the discussion put the emphasis on "the clock and the calendar." But, he continued, if the legislation is "as important as the zealots would have us believe" then there is all the more need to take time and give the bill careful scrutiny. The G. 0. P. leader said his office had been filled with clergymen and others urging quick action, stressing the moral issue and speaking of the danger of street demonstrations and violence if the matter is delayed, and added: "A man isn't fit to walk in this chamber if he is going to be influenced by the pressure of demonstrations." Dirksen said L. wants a civil rights bill that will be fair, equitable and durable. He examined the bill title by title and pointed out ambiguities in the House-nassed bill. He said the wording was imprecis- and established conflict : between federal and state requirements. As an example he cited requirements of the Illinois fair Celebrate Legislative Victory '' 1 , " Backers of civil rights bill hailing preliminary triumph in Senate. Left to right: Sen. Humphrey, Sen. Hart, the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King, and the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth. tUPI TelephotoJ 88 Watch Murder of Woman; Do Nothing Continued from first page assailant stabbed her again. "I'm dying!" she shrieked. "I'm dying!" Windows .were opened again, and lights went on in many apartments. The assailant got into his car and drove away. Miss Genovese staggered to her feet. A city bus to Kennedy International airport passed. It was 3:35 a.m. The assailant returned. By then, Miss Genovese had crawled to the back of the building, where the freshly painted brown doors to the apartment house held hope of safety. The killer tried the first door; she wasn't there. At the second dopr, 82-62 Austin st., he saw her slumped on the floor at the stairs. He stabbed her a third time fatally. There in 2 Minutes It was 3:50 by the time the police received their first call, from a man who was a neigh bor of Miss Genovese. In two minutes they were at the scene The neighbor and two women were the only persons on the street. Nobody came forward The man explained that he called the police after much de liberation. He had phoned a friend in Nassau county for ad vice and then he had crossed the roof of the building to the apartment of one of the women to get her to make the call. "I didn t want to get in volved," he sheepishly told the police. Six days later, the police ar rested Winston Moseley, 29, a business machine operator, and charged him with murder. Moseley had no previous record. He is married, has two children and owns a home in Queens. Yesterday a court committed him to Kings County hospital for psychiatric observation. Confesses 2 Murders When questioned by police, Moseley also said he had slain Mrs. Annie May Johnson, 24, of Jamaica, Queens, on Feb. 29, and Barbara Kralik, 15, of employment practices law and those of title VII of the bill. "Are we now to force an employer to violate a state law in order to comply with a federal statute, each of which has the same purpose?" he asked. Goldwater Favors It He asserted the bill affords an employer no protection from "fishing expeditions" by investigators of the equal opportunities commission that would be established. Sen. Barry Goldwater Ariz., Republican Presidential candidate, did not vote on the motion to take up but was recorded as favoring it. He voted in the losing cause for committee hearings, and in a brief speech said he "has indicated his general sympathy with the essentials of the bill, but has called for at least a bare measure of orderly deliberation," meaning hearings. Springfield Gardens, last July. In the Kralik case, the police are holding Alvin L. Mitchell, who is said to have confessed that slaying. The police told how simple it would have been to call them. "A phone call," said one of the detectives, "would have done it." The police may be reached by dialing "0" for operator or by dialing the police number. The question of whether the witnesses can be held legally responsible in any way for failure to report the crime was put to the police department's general bureau. There, a spokesman said: "There is no legal responsibility, with few exceptions, for any citizen to report a crime." They Can't Explain Today, witnesses from the neighborhood, which is made up uf one-family homes in the $35,000 to $60,000 range, with the exception of the two apartment houses near the railroad station, find it difficult to explain why they didn't call the police. Lt. Bernard Jacobs, who han dled the investigation by the detectives, said his men were able to piece together what happened and capture the suspect because the residents furnished all the information when detectives rang doorbells during the days following the slaying. "But why didn't someone call us that night?" he asked unbelievingly. Witnesses some of them unable to believe what they had allowed to happen told a reporter why. A housewife said, "We thought it was a lover's quarrel." A husband and wife said, "Frankly, we were afraid." They seemed aware of the fact that events might have been dif ferent. A distraught woman, wiping her hands in her apron, said, "I didn't want my husband to get involved." Two Hear Screams One couple said they heard the first screams. We went to the window to see what was happening," he said, "but the light from our bedroom made it difficult to see the street." The wife, still apprehensive, added: "I put out the light and we were able to see better." Asked why they hadn't called the police, she shrugged and replied: "I don't know." A man peeked out thru a slight opening in the doorway to his apartment and told of the killer's second attack. Why hadn't he called the police at the time? "I was tired," he said without emotion. "I went back to bed." It was 4:25 a. m. when the ambulance arrived to take the body of Miss Genovese. It drove off. "Then," a solemn police detective said, "the people came out." POLICE FUND IS SHY $1,500, WILSON SAYS Investigation Centers on 4 Employes Continued from first page curred before last August, when the department put into effect a new system of issuing re ceipts -in triplicate, a system that was intended to reduce the possibility of theft. Robert Lane, a policeman on leave of absence to hold his civilian job in the police de partment's finance division, has direct charge of the extradition fund. The head of the fi nance division, Frank Leahy, a civilian, is Lane's superior officer. Besides Lane and Leahy, only three other persons know the combination to the safe where the receipt books are kept, Wilson said. They are Joseph Hurley and Fred Garzino, both civilians, and a police sergeant whose identity Wilson declined to disclose. Wilson said the policeman had been on leave to hold the civilian job with the fund but had been promoted to sergeant recently and had returned to duty in the police department, All 4 on the Job All four of those named by Wilson are still working at their jobs while the investigation is under way. Wilson would not say if he intends to ask that they be given lie detector tests Meanwhile, Edward V. Han- rahan, United States attorney, and Frank Kiernan, chief of the justice department's organized crime unit here, met to make a start at trying to document charges against 20 Chicago policemen. Supt. Wilson, Mayor Daley, and the police board have said that a memorandum given Wilson some time ago by the justice department contained only rumor, hearsay, and unsubstantiated charges. Daley called it a "vicious document." "We are not in the business of just telling the police superintendent what he wants to know," Hanrahan said. "If we get more helpful information we will definitely make it known to him."

But even though it follows close on winter's traces, the 1964 Easter Parade will look more springlike than usual. Adding to the colorful display will be hundreds of designer ties from Baskin and hardly any two will be alike. A designer tie is the most individual item a man can wear. Nothing else he wears can better express his personality. Look at Baskin's collection of designer ties and you'll see what we mean. We have more than 4,000 bearing such world-famous names as Oleg Cassini, Scaasi, Schiaparelli and Christian Dior. Simply because they're so individual, all 4.000 won't appeal to you. But there are a great many you will like a great deal and at least one that will be per-feet for you to wear this Easter. ISHBaMki Aids Who Slew 3 Robbers Police Supt. Orlando W. Wilson warned armed gangs of stickup men yesterday to get out of Chicago or face death from police guns. Wilson issued the ultimatum as he commended 11 detectives of the criminal intelligence unit for keeping a gang of armed robbers under surveillance and killing three of them in a gun battle after a store holdup on Wednesday. Extends Congratulations "It should stand as a reminder that Chicago is not a good place for thieves to operate," Wilson said at a meeting with the detectives in his office at police headquarters, 1121 S. State st. "A few more examples of this kind and our brigands will move to greener pastures and this is what we want." Receiving Wilson's congratu lations were Sergeants William Hanhardt and John Hinchy, commanders of the C.-I. U., and Detectives Charles Adam-son, Frank Edwards, Hugh Heraty, Wesley Hunter, Ronald O'Hara, Richard Schultz, William Trigg, John Coughlin, and Milton Deas. One Held Skyway Job The detectives had trailed the gang for nine weeks waiting for the robbers to make a move. Wednesday the police cracked down on them as four gunmen fled the $13,000 holdup of the National Tea company store at 4720 S. Cicero av. As Wilson praised his men and Chief Otto Kreuzer of the detective bureau, there were these other disclosures on the gang: 1. One of the slain gunmen, Michael Parille, 37, of 4511 S. La Crosse av., was identified as a former Democratic patronage worker on the Chicago Skyway. 2. Sergeants Hanhardt and Hinchy reported the gang was suspected of having cashed thruout the United States excellent forgeries of federal savings bonds series E in denominations of $100 each. 3. The gang was believed to have committed at least six robberies and burglaries in the gunmen were slain near the National Tea company store. Sponsored by Swinarski A check of city records showed that Pariile, an ex-convict with a police record dating to 1947, had been spon sored for his city job by the 12th ward Democratic organiza tion and its committeeman Theodore Swinarski. Parille worked for the city as a Skyway maintenance man from July 11, 1958 to April 10, 1960. At that time he was fired when his criminal record was learned in a check of the backgrounds of all temporary pa tronage workers. At the time of his death. Parille was free in $15,000 bond on two charges of armed rob bery. He was to have appeared next Tuesday in Criminal court Sergeants Hanhardt and Hin chy said the gang was under investigation by the secret service as suspects in the cashing of 400 counterfeit series E sav ings bonds in Florida, Texas, Nevada, and in several major cities. The one gang member who escaped the police trap Wednesday, Charles Panteas, 27, of 2527 N. Lawndale av., is due to appear in court this morning in St. Petersburg, Fla., as a result of his arrest there March 9 by government agents. He is accused of having passed $8,900 of the fraudulent savings bonds. The other two gunmen slain Wednesday were identified as Neil McCauley, 49, whose last known address was 501 N. Cen tral av., an ex-convict who served sentences for armed robbery in state and federal penitentiaries, and Russell Bre-don, 40, whose last known ad dress was 675 Wrightwood av.
