LONG i )• ROME (AP) - Central Rome vwas paralyzed today by rioting university students who clashed with thousands of helmeled po- ,lice swinging clubs and^firing * tear ga jured, including at least 60 police. More than 100 rioterswere taken into custody. Downtown bus and taxi service halted. Shopkeepers shuttered their stores. Passers-by and lower grade school children fled to shelter in terror as the disorders spread. Students screaming, "Revolu- tionl Revolution!" bombarded police with paving stones ripped up from the. streets. They overturned and- set fire to police cars and buses, Ambulances with sirens screaming Braced through the streets. ; —^ It was the most violent clash in the city since stud ents began occupying university buildings three weeks ago in a campaign for more say in school administration and more modern teaching methods. , .: t We Set Up New Bookkeeping Systems; BLOCK BOOKKEEPING SERVICE HtB BLOCK LOCATION Soys Paftill's Opinion Not Vtry Cltor LITTLE ROCK (AP) » An aide to Gov, Winthrop Roeke* feller complained Thursday that an attorney general's opinion failed to clarify what constitutes the sale of mixed drinks in prl* vate clubs, bridging *n angry retort from Atty, Gen, Joe Pur* celh • "If Gov, Rockefeller is sin* cere in wanting to exercise his responsibility,* and If he does have doubt as to what those are, we'll be happy to detail all his responsibilities," Purcell said, ' He said if the Rockefeller administration were interested In enforcing the laws," It would seem to me it's about time to get down to the business of doing that." Marlon Burton, Rockefeller's executive secretary, complained that Purcell's opinion had not clarified the legal status of "selling" or "dispensing" mixed drinks in private clubs* Purcell said, however, his opinion was definite in stating that the Alcoholic Beverage Contraol Board was responsible for enforcing liquor and beer laws. And the attorney general said the law does not permit the sale of mixed drinks. Purcell's opinion, which went to ABC Director Harrel D. Hughes, said the the laws and regulations of the ABC apply to private clubs. Burton said a Supreme Court decision may be required to resolve the issue. He contends the matter revolves around the word sale In Purcell's opinion that "if the dispensing of beer Is in legal effect a sale, then a permit would be necessary." Burton said the opinion may ; create enough Interest to require some legislation to correct the questions on the issue. Raids on three clubs In Hot Springs earlier In the week resulted In the confiscation of liquor ind the turmoil. The research into the questions also resulted In the discovery of a 1947 ,"BHnd Tiger Law" that has not been repealed. The."Blind Tiger Law" says, in part, that "any person owning, using or controlling any house or' tenament of any kind, who shall sell or give away... any alcohol... shall be deemed a misdemeanor."-, ejSge we dpn't •;• any* law- In Arkansas that 'permits i' the sale of mixed drinks," Purcell said.

"Oite of the Very obvious signs of the split is that the whiles are leaving town," said Detroit councilman Nicholas Hood, the only Negro on the city's governing body. "The groups working to end segregation are trying to solve the problem, but cheek their membership ,*, ydu'H .fifitf them in the suburbs, where they have moved in gelling out of the city,,. "They can give any kind of excuse they want, but it's still separate, and they've separated themselves from us, not we from them." One commission member privately agreed with defining racism as the "usual American habit of .resolving disputes in favor of Whatever whites are Involved." The more obvious aspects of racism-many rigidly segregated schools 14 years after the Supreme Court's school desegregation decision, reluctance to hire and promote Negroes, police harassment—and other, more brutal forms common until a decade ago, have combined to make race a subject many whites seldom think of, but most Negroes are almost always conscious of. A Negro professional man, reasonably successful in his field, outwardly respected by his white colleagues, recently slammed his fist on a table in anger while in the company of a dozen Negro friends. "I don't trust white people," he said. "I just don't trust 'em. We all work for racists, and we knowit." His employer would have been astonished at the outburst, but his friends also professionals, nodded in sympathy and agreement. Just before his remark, the group had been discussing how they felt whites at- x tack Negroes without realizing how their actions are viewed. Another member recalled how a white friend of his, a man who prided himself on not being prejudiced, refused to protest when his landlord would not rent to Negroes. ' "I'm not prejudiced, but what he does Is none of my business," the friend said. . .i.The incident was later, tpld to iBfty : .WJjlkiris,,,w.lio s cpmrnented: • * ' '"The mere fact that he's indifferent to it illustrates one phase of the racism that we're talking about.
