At least five policemen were reported hurt, not seriously, and eight persons were arrested by police. About 80 per cent of the 40,ODD persons living in a slum section of Coney island where the trouble centered, are either Negroes or Puerto Ricans. Police said Sunday night's battling began when youths pelted a passing patrol' car with rocks and bottles. Both occupants. Patrolmen Roger Swanson and David Nadel, were injured, police said. Other police sought to make arrests for the attack, and said an unruly crowd, some standing on tenement roofs along Mermaid Avenue near 25lh Street, began throwing more missiles and some firebombs at officers. Reinforcements from the riot-trained Tactical Patrol Froce moved into the area and brought the disorder to a halt shortly before midnight. 200 BATHTUBS SAIL IN VANCOUVER RACE VANCOUVER, B.C.

The Kennedy who proved the heifer's bravery and worthiness o be considered a mother of one of Spain's brave bulls was 'oseph Kennedy, 15, son of slain U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Joseph came to his first test as a bull fighter at El Toruno, he big cattle spread owned by he family of Salvador Guardio- a, one of Spain's more famous breeders of fighting bulls. In the What Makes A Man Old? By BETTY CANARY Businessmen have been asked vhy, with the older generation or he "senior citizen" group now comprising more than 10 per cent of the total population, they are not cashing in on that $40 bil- ion yearly income instead of concentrating on the youth cult. As one man said tt me in hushed tones, "Senior citizens spend about $850 million on hobble; alone." U seemed to me this man :hinks what this country needs is Jigger and fancier shuffleboard courts and his main concern is how he is going to get a piece of the action. Others think differently. Rabbi -evi A. Olan, a Texas religious eader, said recently that mandatory retirement at age 65 is 'one of the great immoralities of our times." Many Retain Their Vigor My opinion is that instead of tudying ways to cash in on. the 'senior citizen" income, perhaps by thinking up better play-group activities, what we should do is stop viewing older persons as a collective problem. As Olan has said, many retain their vigor and have much-needed capabilities. Nobody is denying that aches and pains are more to be expected at age 70 than at 20. And sen- "lity comes to some of us now as it has always come to some. Some older men and women will need nursing home care and no- jody is quarreling about putting ;rip-bars on bathtubs. But, what would like lo know is when did :he youth cult begin? When and by whom was it decided Hi every human being reaching,age 65 must stop physical and mental work and concentrate on checkers and fishing? In fact, who decided that age 65 was when a man ceased being man and became, instead, "senior citizen?" What I believe has been said so well by Samuel Ullman in "From the Summit of Years Four Score." 'Youth means the predom- nance of courage over timidity, of adventure over the love ol ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than in a boy of 20. "Nobody grows old merely by the number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. "You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair." . CrVTTAN SPEAKER Raymond Klein, office and sys terns manager at the Bridgepor Hydraulic company will speak on "data processing" at a meeting of the Bridgeport Civitan club to morrow at noon In United Hall Maplewood avenue. Battles Cattle in Spain-Young Joe Kennedy Proves Family Tradition With Bull Kennedy action tradition, Joseph fought the yearling svith cape and mulcta. with lance and, after the horn-clipping, in a wrestling match. Joseph and his uncle, U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass,, flew into Sevilla July 6 from New York lor a vacation on (he Guanlioia ranch, which lasted only a few days for the senator. Since t h e n , Joseph has been playing soccer, helping ranch caretakers feed bulls and ridins horseback. Then Joseph tried his hand as a torero, a f t e r some i n i t i a l reluctance. A f t e r the formal fighting with the picador's lane, with cape and with muleta, the red flannel a bullfighter uses with his sword in the faena or dealh stage of a fight, Spanish cowboys clipped the lips of the heifer's horns. She had been an obviously brave opponent. Young Kennedy then tried wrestling the a n i m a l to the ground, or bulidogging 'as they call it in the States. After a couple of minutes he managed to flip the bull but not until he had hit the deck once and cut a small gash behind his left ear. He bled a bit but only alcohol lo sterilize the wound was needed. Fascinates Him "All this is fascinating," he said afterward, a big grin on his face. Perhaps the sere land of Andalusia southwest of Madrid was a good place for younj; Kennedy lo vacation after (he death of his father. . For one thing, he was among longtime Kennedy friends, the Guardiolas, Both families have links w i t h tragedy. Salvador Gunrdiola once had 12 children. Three were lost in accidents, including the dealh five years ago of Salvador Jr.. f a m e d as a rc- joneador or bullfighter on horseback, who died in 1963 in Palma de Mallorca when he was performing. His horse threw him and his legs became tangled in the saddle. He hit the ground with his head and was dragged. A a f e w hours later he was pronounced dead, Far company, Joseph brought a friend, W i l l i a m McDcrmolt. but he has had other teen-aged companions. One has been 15- year-old Nina Guardiola, a pretty brunetlc, whose presence has provided a prime opportunity for journalists to hint at romance.
