Dallas Police Chief Meets With Chicanes DALLAS (AP)- Police Chief Frank Dyson met with West Dallas 'Mexican-American community Monday night and about 20 of the 200 in the group walked out as he explained a new police program to promote good will and understanding with them. "I think I did accomplish something. At least they heard me out. There is a lot of misunderstanding and hopefully we can overcome some of this," Dyson said later. Dyson said new crime control efforts in the West Dallas area were favorable, Dyson said efforts are being made to sharpen police sensitivity to the cultural and language differences of police and Mexican-Americans. Copies of Dyson's proposals, printed in English and Spanish, ended up shredded on the lawn outside the school where Dyson spoke. Dyson opened the meeting for questions and the forum bogged down in complaints and criticism. "Pretty soon we will have to be carrying guns to protect us from you," said a youth in tne crowd. "The police are the occupation troops. We are an occupied people," asserted George Martinez. Dyson explained a rec ruitment program encourages more minority group persons to become police. He said plans are to allow residents to ride with police as observers. ON AFRO HAIRCUT BAN Air Force Upheld By Supreme Court WASHINGTON (AP)—A black ex-airman failed Monday in the Supreme Court to win review of his court-martial conviction for wear ing an "Afro" hairdo. The vote against August Doyle, now working as a clerk in Dallas, was unanimous with the court giving no explanation of its position. Doyle, 23, was convicted at a court-martial at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico in 1969 for wilful disobedience of a lawful order. He had refused an order by his acting squadron commander to have his hair closely trimmed. At the court-martial Doyle testified he wore an "Afro" because "it's asymbol of identity, pride and way of communicating with other blacks." He was sentenced to three months at hard labor, forfeiture of $60 pay a month and reduced to the rank of airman basic. In appealing to the Supreme Court with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, Doyle contended the conviction violated his rights to freedom of expression and personal liberty. Del Rip The Justice Department op posed the appeal. "Federal courts should not assume the task of reviewing the military's determination as to what constitutes the neat appearance required of servicemen," said Solicitor General Erwin N. Griswold. The Air Force's dress regulation -when Doyle was in service provided that "hair must be neat and closely trimmed." The regulation was changed last September to require that "hair be neat, clean, trimmed and present a groomed appearance.' 1 Shell Moving To Houston HOUSTON (AP) - Moving the corporate headquarters of Shell Oil Co. from New York City to Houston will Involve the transfer of 1,600 employes.
