(AP) The Rev, Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, chift executive officer of the United Presbyterian Church, and other Protestant, Catholic and Jewish clergymen were arrested when they attempted to integrate an amusement park near Baltimore in a massive Independence Day demonstration. At least 36 clergymen were among the 283 whites and Negroes arrested.

Most ignored the in but suburban Woodlawn, where in the Gwynn Oak amusement park is located, read like a religious who's who.

"Take 'em all. Lock 'eni up and throw away the key. It looks like a revival meeting," were among the catcalls. A few cherry bombs were tossed, but for the most part everything was orderly. Integrationists responded by singing freedom songs and waving placards stenciled with such messages as "Freedom Now". More than 200 of the nearly 400 who took part in the protest came from New York City and Philadelphia in buses. Among the prominent churchmen rounded up by more than 50 Baltimore County police officers assigned to the park were: Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, chief executive officer of the United Presbyterian Church; Bishop Daniel Corrigan of the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church; the Rev.

Others gained entrance to the park by taking off their shoes and socks, rolling up their pants and wading across Gwynn Falls, small stream that . meanders around part of the wooded picnic area. Price, who owns the park along with his two brothers, said economic reasons have persuaded him not to integrate. "We are in an area wWre the whites have not excepted Negroes. It is a matter of economic survival." Dr. Blake, however, had other thoughts.

(AP)-A state patrolman's 200-yard rifle shot from behind a hedgerow ended a killing spree by a convict whose Independence Day bid for freedom left three persons dead, one wounded and four hostages, thankful they survived.

But the European Common Market is moving toward uniform tariffs against outside goods including American. In some European countries this uniform wall could mean higher tariffs on American products, rather than lower, because at present the levies vary markedly from country to country. President Kennedy and President Antonio Segni of Italy announced their two natioas would work toward greater volume of trade between the two cotintires. Much of the outcome of U.S. attempts to lower trade barriers still depends on the attitude of President Charles de Gaulle of France. On his upcoming visit to Germany, De Gaulle may discuss with, German officials how they reacted during the presidential trip to any American proposals for lowering trade barriers. Along with improving trade re- latioris with Europe, President Kennedy's trip may have had some bearing on building still higher the defenses of this and other Western nations against any speculative runs on their currencies. The United States, prosperous as it is, needs sucl defenses now.
