Rioters broke windows and door. Brier Johnson On R By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter JOHNSON CITY. lex. (UPI) —President Johnson, in a effort to help the tense racial situation in Los Angeles, ordered Air Force transportation to rush Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown of California from Grece back to his home state. As Acting Gov. Glenn Anderson ordered the National Guard into riot-ripped South Los Angeles. Johnson directed that a fast U. S. transport plane be placed at the disposal of Brown who has been vacationing in Greece. Meanwhile, the Justice Department kept Johnson posted on the recurrent riots in Los Angeles and new outbreaks of racial violence in Chicago.

Jester Co. as the new Voting Rights Act would have taken some of the steam from the predicted "long hot summer" in areas of racial tension. Local Authorities Patterns of the Los Angeles and Chicago outbreaks, however, were such that no amount of recently enacted federal legislation offered prospect of soothing or solution. Thus the President for the more or less immediate future had to leave the violence almost entirely in the hands of state and local authorities. In another area related to civil rights, the White House tried to preserve a position of detachment at least for the present, toward efforts by Dr. Martin Luther King, one of the more aggressive champions of Negro rights, to bring about Vietnamese peace talks with the Red Chinese. Hanoi and the West. Here was another case in which Johnson could not involve himself directly unless King does something which would bring him into conflict with the Logan Act. a law prohibiting private citizens from undertaking independent negotiations with a private power. While the White House took a rigid "no comment" attitude toward the King proposals, it was known that the executive establishment is less than happy about mixing Viet Nam policy into the civil rights situation.

When the suspect resisted arrest, sympathetic Negroes in the crowd that gathered menaced the officers. Additional officers were summoned and the riots were enjoined.

The disturbance continued sporadically throughout the day Friday, climaxed with the setting; of fires which devastated a two-block area of Watts and widespread 'ooting.

Carl Littrell, 59, an employe of Ice Delivery, Inc., was overcome and injured when an overhead coil of an ammonia gas system broke. He was half buried by cartons of ice which blocked his escape from the fumes that spread through the plant. Three other workers in the storage room were overcome but escaped. They were Littrill's son, Donald, and Robert and Richard Grimes, 17-year-old twins. Six firemen also were treated for ammonia inhaltation — Capt. Edward Roberts, Capt. Eldon Lemel, Lt.

'Radical Fringe"— Scranton Touches Off New GOP Controversy WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Republican party appeared today to be no nearer to resolving its continuing debate on whether the party is harboring a "radical fringe" which is tainting its image. A new round of controversy in party ranks was prompted Friday by a statement from Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton that the GOP should stop trying to accommodate fringe groups which have gained access to its councils. Scranton made his comments Thursday night in his first major political speech in months, delivered before the American Bar Association in Miami Beach, Fla. Many Republicans took quiet issue with the- Pennsylvania governor's views, but liberal party members praised him for continuing the fight against the extreme right wing. The liberals, led by Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., said the right wing had reached its high point in backing Barry M. Goldwater for the presidency last year. Scranton made a futile llth hour attempt to head off Goldwater's nomination. Senate GOP leader Everett M. Dirksen was among the party members who took exception to the governor's speech. "What may be radical today may ;be moderate or progressive tomorrow," the Illinois senator said in an interview. "Let's not start controversy. Why pick a fight?" In his speech, Scranton did not recommend a "purge" or "witch hunt." He said the ty "need onlv refuse to water down or suppress Its majority views and the radical fringe will not need to be driven oiil for they will leave on their own account." ' ':.
