Mrs. Celeste Lansdale of Naples, who for four years led a double life as a United Airlines stewardess and the wife of a Florida lawyer, told UPI her .superiors didn't object when a man answered each time they called her apartment. "As long as they thought I was just living with a man, everything was all right," said Mrs. Lansdale, who was fired in June for "misconduct" when the truth about her marital status was revealed. LEGAL BATTLE With the help of her attorney- husband, Mrs. Lansdale has launched a legal battle under provisions of the equal opportunity regulations. Protesting ihat United's marriage ban is no way to run an airline, Mrs. Lansdale said "This practice really condones a girl carrying on an illicit sex life. As long as they think she's just living in sin, she can have everything she wants." United is the only major airline which still refuses to give wings to housewives. The 29-year-old former New Yorker flew for seven years with United, the first three legally single. Of the 5,000 stewardesses with the airlines she estimates "a minimum of 10 per cent are actually married and pretending that the men they live with are just lovers." HEARING SET Mrs. Lansdale goes before a Florida Industrial Commission hearing here Monday in an effort to collect unemployment pay. The commission contends that by getting married she "voluntarily quit work" and therefore forfeited such compensation. She has also filed a grievance with the Airline Pilots Association contending that the marriage ban wasn't in her contract when she married, that it violates moral laws, is against public policy and the civil rights act. She sought injunctive relief in the U. S. district court and filed discrimination charges against United with the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. STEWARDESS DUTY J. K. Bradshaw, stewardess service manager for United in Miami, said the airline feels the job of stewardess docs not "lend itself to a compatible married life." "They are away from home, work odd hours, and do not have a routine life," he said. "It is not the type of life compatible with the normal type of married experience." Mrs. Lansdale said once her United supervisor commented, "Every time I call your number I get a Mr. Lansdale. Is there a reason?" "I said 'Yes, there is,' but that was tho end of it," Mrs. Lansdale said. Charging that Ihe airline is "peddling sex instead of safety," the former hostess said, "do you Ihink a 20-year-old sexpot with little experience can do a better job of evacuating passengers in an emergency?"

Two youths were injured when they were struck by a car while crossing Bernal Avenue alongside the fairgrounds as the crowds left following the per- f o r m a n c e . R i c h a r d G . Schuchardt, 16, of 6370 Jasmine St., Newark, and William Bright, 17, of 420 Deleon Ave., Fremont, were taken to Valley Memorial Hospital in Livermore for treatment. Bright suffered leg and possibly internal injuries, but Schuchardt received only minor lacerations. THERE WAS evidence of drug and LSD use among the thousands of students, hippies and other young people who attended the festival. At one time, police, were called in to calm a growing riot caused when a crowd of youths without tickets Board To Discuss Schoenf eld's Post New Haven Unified School District trustees will meet in a special session tonight to evaluate the services of and act on the renewal of a contract for Dr. Harold Schoenfeld, district superintendent. The meeting, which is closed to the public, will be held at 8 p.m. in the district service cen-. ter, 33480 Western Ave.; Union City. After a personnel session last December, the board announced it would award Schoenfeld a new, four-year contract. effective July i, 1968. The vole was 3-2 for the new contract. Trustees, at the same time, said they would wait for a study on salaries being prepared by the University of California Field Service Center, before deciding on the salary that would go with the new contract. The study was presented in .April, and the boarir then decided to postpone consideration of the contract until this month. In effect, the board reversed the decision of last December, and did not award Schoenfeld a contract in July. His current four-year contract expires in June, 1969, and the board, by law, has until Dec. 31, 1968, to act on a new contract. If no action has been taken by that time, the contract will, automatically renew in July, 1969. tried to enter the grandstand area. It was reported that authorities finally let some in free to avoid a confrontation. As it was, onlookers said that some youths turned on a water faucet and threw mud clods at officers. Sheriff's deputies reported they were pelted with rocks thrown from the grandstand area. Over 10,000 attended Saturday's event and it was estimated that over 20,000 thronged to the fairgrounds yesterday to hear the nationally known musical groups. Police units from the California Highway Patrol, Alameda County Sheriff's Department, Livermore, Pleasanton and Fre- inonl Police Departments responded to the mutual aid call for the skirmish which was quickly quelled. Sheriff's deputies reported t h a t t h e windshield w a s smashed out of a "paddy wagon" parked on the fairgrounds, but they said that other youths offered to clean up the broken glass. IT WAS reported also that throughout the two-day affair, six persons were taken to Valley Memorial Hospital, "high" on drugs. One youth was unconscious when ambulance attendants picked him up. There were several drunk arrests made, it was reporled. It was the first time the Pleasanton fairgrounds have been opened to a special youth event. Fairground officials have been subjected to considerable criticism in the past because this has not been done. After the performance last night, highway patrol units spent over two hours directing traffic in the massive jam which materialized on Inter- estate routes 580 and 680. Several minor accidents were reported, and one car struck a power pole on Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton. LONDON ( U P I ) -- Thousands of demonstrators staged the biggest anti-American protest in British history Sunday and clashed with a huge police force which stopped them from storming the U.S. Embassy. A bomb wrecked the John F. Kennedy memorial at Runnymede. Upwards of 30,000 persons participated in the London demonstration against the Vietnam War, and flying bricks shattered several windows in sidestreets near the U.S. Embassy in Grosvenor Square, the focal point of the protest. There was no damage to the embassy itself, but police reporled "general hooliganism," including window breaking in surrounding streets, hours after the main protest broke up. 23 ARRESTED Police said 23 persons were arrested and "about 30" injured, including eight policemen. The demonstrators marched from Trafalgar Square through the chilly streets of London for hours constantly chanting such slogans as "Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minn" and "Down with American imperialism." Massive security precautions and a force of nearly 17,000 police equipped with helicopters and patrol boats prevented the demonstration from turning into a riot. 'WANTON ACT' A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy described the bomb attack on the granite Kennedy memorial at Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was signed, as a "wanton act which seems incredible in this day and age." The memorial to the assassinated president, · set up in May, 1965, may be damaged.beyond repair. "The stone is split right down the center," said William Rixon, warden for the National Trust which cares for Runnymede. It was not immediately clear whetlier the attack on the memorial was connected with the London march. All in all, both marchers and police remained calm and even good-humored, although there was a tense 45 minutes in front of the U.S. Embassy when some of the demonstrators kept trying to push through a police cordon 15 men deep in an attempt to get to the white cement and glass fronted building. They did not succeed. 'HURRAH FOR LBJ' One crowd of several hundred marchers chanted "Hurrah, hurrah for LBJ" when they approached the embassy hut when they were close they suddenly changed their chant to anti-American slogans. They apparently thought the pro-American ploy might gel them through police cordons. Youth Dies Of Gunshot A 17-year-old San Lcandro boy died of a gunshot wound in the head yesterday at Washington Hospital in Fremont, apparently a suicide victim, police say. Steven G. Schneirson, -495 Lewis St., was found wounded shortly before 1:30 p.m. in an upstairs bedroom at 37394 Third Street, Fremont, the home of family friends, police reported. June C. Roderick, a resident at that address, told police, she d on P*j* % Cof. 1) Home Of Former Mayor Robbed Thieves, thought to be juveniles, burglarized the home of former-Fremont mayor John L. Stevenson, and made off with two autos, television sets, a painting, furs and other expensive items. The missing ears are a black and gray 1968 Lincoln Continental and a tan 1965 Ford Thun-' dcrbird.

The house at'601 Prune Ave. was broken into by forcing open a window. Because of the way the burglary was carried out, police believed it was probably done by juveniles. Stevenson's son, Bruce, 16, discovered the burglary about 6;30 p.m. Friday. Stevenson returned Saturday from two weeks in Mexico.
