last night The meeting was held In a rural field near Stone Mountain east of Atlanta A brightly lit 30-foot burning cross dominated the scene Several members of the robed audience faced the cross with their left arms in stiff salute as the cross burned The meeting was called by James Venable an Atlanta attorney and chairman of the National Ku Klux Klan Assn He told the crowd "You’ll never be able to convict a white man that killed a Nigger what (sic) encroaches on the white race in the south" This apparently was a reference to the acquittal Friday of two Athens Ga men tried for murder in connection with the slaying of a Negro educator NEWS Venable said his Klan organization does not preach violence except in self-defense "Our weapons are the boycott and the ballot’ he said A Louisiana klansman claimed 10000 members in his state one from Ohio predicted 90000 members in five years There was no elaboration on Venable's statement about the klan's political power in nine states 27 Die

marauding gangs of rioters some attempting to bum houses Most of the gang members however fled as soldiers and police converged on the scene Earlier today 15 armed men attacked a military radio transmitting station police said A soldier guarding the station opened fire after warning the attackers and the mob disappeared in the pre-dawn darkness Police said this indicated the current riots were more than just racial A decomposed body found under a bridge today brought the death toll to 1 1 since the racial troubles began last Wednesday More than 70 have been injured including 22 hospitalized More than 25 persons mostly Malays were arrested in Geylang area between last night and this morning an Army officer said More than 160 arrests have been made since the start of the riots An uneasy calm settled over much of the city as heavily armed troops and police patrolled in force All the latest arrests were made for carrying offensive weapons — pipes and spears— the infantry officer said There were no reports of fresh fighting after daylight today when a tight curfew was lifted for three and half hours Market areas in the Geylang district were surrounded by armed troops Business appeared brisk however as housewives stocked up for another curfew siege which began at 9 A M Chinese and Malays mixed casually at the markets making large purchases to carry them through the next 20-12 hours Barbed wire barricades were up throughout large sections of the city to keep a check on traffic A Royal Malaysian Air Force helicopter made repeated sweeps over the Geylang district to find any large filled completely with water and an incredible congolme-ration of rubbish was the result Amidst ail this damage were the millions of refugees from Communist China They the people that suffered most were the people that could least afford to Some of these refugees live in modem government resettlement estates But most squeeze into tiny plywood shacks that hang into the hillsides that surround Hong Kong An estimated 50000 of these refugees lost their meager dwellins and almost everything else they owned Landslides flooding rains avalanches of boulders completely ruined their shacks FEAR MANY DEAD At least six were killed and many more are feared dead This afternoon police were still digging at many shack sites in the hope of rescuing families buried inside Government welfare groups prepared thousands of hot meals for the refuges many of whom had to spend last night in the open with Ruby still raging The Hong Kong government gave cash today to many of the refugees But it was still uncertain how many would need assistance Arab Summit CONTD FROM P 1 ing danger in occupied Palestine’ Nasser was followed by Saudi Arabian viceroy Prince Feisal who called for the "liberation of the entire Arab homeland from the yoke of imperialism and foreign domination" Arab League secretary-general Abdel Khalek Has-souna in turn demanded the liberation of "sacred Palestine” and included "the occupied south” meaning British-ruled Aden and the protectorates of the Southern Arabian peninsula Nasser told his colleagues seated around a circular table in ex-King Farouk's Montazah Palace that Egypt brought to the conference no special issues This was taken as a reference to the Yemeni civil war in which Nasser backs the Republicans and Saudi Arabia
