Brockton Women Object Back -Yard Home Lots Fought BROCKTON Twelve AL gonquin st. housewives sought nn injunction in district court Friday to stop a builder from constructing new homes, which they contend, will be in their back yards. Their action may be the first Mace in what could be a major court battle involving several banks, the Veterans Adminis-tration and the Federal Hous ing Authority. Mayor Alvin Jack Sims ordered that no building permits be issued for the proposed homes until the matter is straightened out. The contractor, Robert B. Pulsinclli Sr., said he plans to build the $13,000 homes, "per-mits or no permits." The matter came to tne at tention of the women this week when rulsinclli staked out the 7000-square-foot lots on Anawan av. and Moncricf St., which run off Algonquin st.

MURPHY Globe Reporter MANCHESTER, N.H. Mrs. Joan Coolidge testified Friday that the gun the state says her husband used to murder Pamela Mason never left their home that night. The slim, dark housewife spoke in a halting voice. Once she broke down monentarily, but composed herself and went on. Her husband, Edward H. Coolidge Jr., has been on trial for four weeks for the slaying of the 14-year-old Mason girl the night of Jan. 13, 1964. Defense Atty. John Graf showed Mrs. Coolidge the alleged death weapon, a .22 Mossberg rifle, and asked her: "Did you see Ed take this gun out of the house on Jan. 13, 1964?" "No, I did not." Mrs. Coolidge replied. "That gun never was out of the house on Jan. 13." The defense was also able to cast doubt on the testimony of ballistics experts in identifying Coolidge's .22 rifle as the murder weapon. Four government witnesses gave their opinion that the same weapon was used in the slaying of both Pamela Mason and of Sandra Valade in 1960. But the defense produced witnesses to show that Coolidge did not obtain the rifle until a year after the Valade slaying. Mrs. Coolidge backed up her husband's testimony that he showed police the .22 and 170 Firms Study Negro Unemployment By JOHN B. VALUE Financial Reporter "I was marching for human dignity, and so were all the others.

From a speech Thursday to New England journalists by William Arthur, editor, Look magazine, describing the March on Washington. Another step in that "march for jobs and freedom" was taken at the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, where 170 representatives of Greater Boston businesses gathered for a day long seminar on Negro employment. The seminar was sponsored by Tom Brown, founder of the non-profit employment agency wmcn, since its beginning in Roy F. Delapenha of the Industrial Relations Division of the National Association of Manufacturers reported that there are many thousands of jobs going begging. The need, he said, is to get the information about the jobs to the person who need them. Present systems have been shown inadequate, he said.

The seminar had many pur poses: to let employers know what is available in the Negro labor market; to let the Negro know where jobs are; but, Reading from his doctoral thesis "Negro Employment in the Boston Labor Market," John J.

Officers have said he showed them only three, and that they did not see the .22 until they returned to the house while Coolidge was at the police station. Mrs. Coolidge told the court that after her husband was questioned he said he was "very scared and concerned." She said he told her he had been questioned about the Valade murder four years before and did not want to become involved in this case. She said that at his suggestion she asked a next-door neighbor to tell police Coolidge was home between 5 and 7 p.m. on Jan. 13. Pamela Mason got into a car outside her home between 5:30 and 6 p.m. that day and was driven away, ostensibly to a baby-sitting job. Her body was found eight days later. Robert Demers of Manches ter testifified he had two drinks with Coolidge in the S.A.C.A. Club on Jan. 13 and said Coolidge left about 5:45. The club is three miles from the Mason home.

He looked at the picture and looked away, and stammered a bit as he said, "I never see her before in my life." Bussiere asked him, "Now tell me once more what day you first became concerned about being picked up in this case?" "The lfith or 17th of January," said Coolidge. "Or maybe the 141 h, when you asked for a sales slip predated to the 13th?" shot back Bussiere. "I asked for that predated sales slip for a different reason" the defendant replied. A mysterious conference between Judge Robert Griffith and opposing counsel delayed the start of the session. On taking the bench Judge Grif fith told the jury: "A matter arose this morning requiring some attention. I am not at present able to disclose what it is, I think it will become apparent later in the trial."
