IAPI Negro civil rights leaders Have announced plans for a march on Churchill Downs tonight creating a possible confrontation with the 25,000 fans who normally attend Kentucky Derby- eve races. The Rev. A.D. Williams King, leader in the movement for an open housing ordinance, said Thursday he planned to - '?o house shopping — just to look, not buy" in the city's all-white South. End, scene of violence during demonstrations three weeks ago. King's brother, Dr. Martin Luther King, in Louisville for Derby week, said earlier he and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference "are 100 per cent behind using every means of persuasion" to get the city to pass a law banning racial discrimination in the sale or rental of housing property. The march will occur about the time the Derby-eve crowd exits from Churchill Downs, also in the southern part of Louisville. If police approve th marchers' application for a parade permit, they must supply enough officers to keep order and reroute traffic. « * t If the permit, is denied, a spokesmen said the group would march anyway. The marchers then would face arrests for vio- lating a recent court injunction banning night marches and marches without permits. * * * The group will assemble at Wyandotte Park for a seven- block march to the Downs. Wyandotte is the area where two weeks ago marchers met up to 1,000 white hecklers who threw bricks, bottles and rocks. Police made a total of 500 arrests. The marchers apparently will not enter the Churchill Downs grounds. There were these other developments Thursday: Officials said policemen and National Guardsmen will number about 300 more than usual for the Kentucky Derby Saturday. Gov. Edward T. Breathitt said, "I cannot believe that the cause of open housing or any other facet of civil rights could be helped by demonstrations at Churchill Downs." * * * The National Committee against Discrimination in Housing announced it is demanding that the federal gov- related to urban renewal, ernment deny -Louisville funds housing projects, and the model city program unless the city's aldermen pass an open housing ordinance. Negro leaders have promised some demonstration on Derby day, but have not said what form it will take.

While the Senate panel did not rule out use of a lottery draft system, it questioned whether it would "really result in a fairer sharing of military service." The universal lottery plan drew renewed backing from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., in testimony Thursday before a House Armed Services subcommittee. The plan also was backed by Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, director of Selective Service.

Dewey Bartlett a bill to legalize artificial insemination of humans and declare children of such conception legitimate. Final approval of the measure which opponents tagged immoral came Thursday as the House accepted some Senate amendments with little discussion. Both bodies had passed the bill earlier. Bartlett, who hasn't expressed an opinion on the matter, could make Oklahoma the first state in the nation with a law on human artificial insemination by signing the bill. The measure provides that LBJ Back at Ranch For Long Weekend SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) President Johnson is back at his Texas ranch for what seems destined to be a long let-up weekend. The White House press office, headquartered here some 70 miles from the LBJ Ranch, said Johnson would be working on ambassadorial appointments, jorrespondence and similar rather routine chores. Johnson and wife Lady Bird flew to Texas Thursday afternoon. artificial insemination may be practiced in the state by a medical doctor. Offspring resulting from the procedure would be considered under the law as having the same rights as a legitimate child conceived naturally. During the original debate on the measure, Rep. J.D. Witt, D- Vinita, warned that passage of the bill could lead to Oklahoma becoming "the Sweden of the United States." Other House opponents charged it was "an immoral" proposal that would "put human beings at the same level as four- legged animals" and "won't make for good relations between husbands and wives." Rep. George Camp, R-Oklahoma City, has received communications from all over the nation concerning his efforts to pass such a bill. One letter came from a 27- year-old woman in the Northeast who is expecting her first child in June. The child was conceived by artificial insemination after 3% years of failure to have a child by natural methods. "These last six months have been the happiest of my husband's and my lives," the woman wrote. "My husband is our baby's father." "Fatherhood is more than genes and chromosomes, so much more," she added. Dr. Herman J. Muller, Nobel Prize-winning zoology professor at the University of Indiana, expressed "encouragement and support" for the bill. An Oklahoma City couple wrote saying they have been planning to have a child by this method, but their doctor has advised them to wait to see what would happen to the law. The wife wrote: The doctor "will not and cannot agree to help us unless this bill is allowed to become law." The wife said she knew of other couples interested in and willing to undergo insemination.

Taylor Talks Amid Tear Gas Bombs \ HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) -I Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, defending U.S. policy in South Vietnam, continued talking in an unperturbed manner Thursday night at Chabot College despite release of two tear-gas cartridges in the audience. * Taylor, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former ambassador to the Southeast Asian country, spoke at the junior college's new gymnasium dedication. " He was answering questions jvhen one cartridge was set off, JBriving about 75 persons from a (Section of the main floor. Doors were opened and ventilating fans turned on. Then, a second cartridge was set off in the bleachers forcing another 50 persons ta flee. There was no indication that the gas reached Taylor. A police official said, "It definitely was tear gas, but no one suffered." About 2,300 persons were in the audience. Chabot has 6,300 students. Police said "two very small cartridges" were smashed against the rear wall of the gym, opposite from where Taylor was speaking. Outside the gym, about 20 pickets marched in opposition to U.S.-Vietnam policy. Taylor entered the gym earlier through a rear door. Later, another group, said to be students, set up a counter- picket line. In his speech Taylor said bombing of North Vietnam is necessary to keep pressure on the enemy. He said he thought requests for more men on the bfittlefront were justified. Both of Olds' MIG kills have been made with air-to-air missiles. The Russian-designed MIG21 is a bigger prize than the earlier MIG17, since it is faster and more maneuverable. Only one other U.S. pilot, Lt. Hugh Wisely, a Navy flyer from Wayne, N.J., is credited with two enemy planes shot down, |one a propellor-driven plane early this year and the other a MIG17 on April 24. Olds flew 107 missions with the 8tti Air Force in World War II and won two Distinguished Flying Crosses, two Silver Stars, the Air Medal with 27 oak leaf clusters, the British Distinguished Flying Cross and the French Croix de Guerre. During the Korean War, he iwas in the Air Defense Command and, as he says, "missed Ithe fighting." "HOW TO TEACH YOUR BOY THE VALUE OF A DOLLAR" If interested in a newspaper route for your ton, call or write the circulation manager of the This newspqperboy has learned an important lesson through his part-time business. He already knows that a dollar isn't something that comes free every week under that loose term "allowonce." He knows how many papers he has to deliver and how he has to hustle for a dollar. It's one of the many lessons he'll learn on his route. When a boy takes charge of a newspaper route he's going into business for himself. He learns to budget his time, to keep accurate records; he learns oil-around responsibility. And his profits give him a head start on saving while he has the chance to get ahead. If your son cornes up to you someday and asks if he can have a paper route, don't give him the brush-off. He's showing o little initiative. And after all, that's how Ed Sullivan started out... he was a news- paperboy, too. Blytheville Courier News REMEMBER!
