A third direct-action resolution was also adopted, urging all state, area and regional conferences, branches, youth councils and college chapters to fall in line with more active national policy. The delegates also approved resolutions censuring the American Bar Association and calling for ah economic boycott of Portugal and the Union of South Africa. The ABA was censured for not appointing a Negro to its committee on civil rights and racial unrest. The economic boycott of Portugal and the Union of South Africa was urged to protest both the existence oC apartheid in South Africa and to "deplore the fact that the African nations of Mozambique and Angola still remain undo: the domination of Portugal." Court Frees j L 174 Arrested At Baltimore BALTIMORE (AP) A trial magistrate released 174 Negro and white integrations in their own recognizance Friday night after they had spent a day in jail following their Independence Day arrests as they staged a mass protest at a privately owned, segregated amusement park. Another 109 persons, including several nationally known clergymen had been released Thursday after they posted $103 bond on charges of* trespassing. Under Maryland law, the proprietor of a business can exclude whomever he pleases. A group of seven Baltimore area clergymen who were among the 175 persons jailed, announced Friday they had formed an "ad hoc committtee to desegregate Gwynn Oak Park," and promised another demonstration Sunday.

He has called for a decision Sunday on his unusual proposal for a temporary agreement, a two-year truce and study groups modeled after the steel industry's Human Relations Committee to search for a permanent solution, The railroads and five operating unions—who have been fighting over work rules for four years- indicated they will study the matter thoroughly and give their answer in Wirtz' office Sunday.

He was th^ fourth suspect to be picked up by Secret Service agents and local police. Seek Five More Five more men were sought in connection with the operation, which Secret Service area chief Tom Hanson called the largest in the history of the service. Agents already have recovered some $2.4 million in counterfeit money printed at the school. Hanson said another $500,000 in bogus money is somewhere in the San Francisco area. Carothers told police he had a key to the campus press "to work at night on overtime jobs," Dr. Fred Harcleroad, the college president, expressed shock when told the bills were printed on the campus. "No one at the college had any knowledge or indication that anyone or any facility on the campus was being used for other than normal use.' 1 he said.

The President said in a 300- word statement that the journey was a "moving experience" which supported his belief that "every American has reason to be proud of this nation's reputation and standing in Europe." The report was filmed and recorded Wednesday after Kennedy's return from Europe earlier that same day. It was released Friday to television and radio networks, and other news media. Kennedy visited Germany, Ireland, England and Italy on the trip. *'There is still much progress to be made," Kennedy said. "There will still be disappointments. But today we can be more confident than ever that the old world and the new are partners for progress and partners for peace." rry Visitor Errs JOPLIN, Mo. (UPI)-The police patrol car officer was stumped Friday by a man who spoke only Spanish, but apparently wanted help. So, the officer drove him to the police station. An interpreter found that the man had mistaken the police car for a taxicab and had wanted a ride to the home of his daughter. The man had made another mistake. He had alighted from a bus in Joplin, but his daughter lives in Kansas City, 170 miles away. LINDEN, N.J. (AP) - Four policemen early today captured Richard (Teddy) Coleman, accused of shooting to death his wife and sister-in-law, wounding three other persons and kidnaping an 18-year-old girl. The girl, Mary Kaminski, bleeding from head cuts and hysterical, had been released about a half hour earlier in nearby Elizabeth. Coleman, 32, a Negro, was captured by the Newark policemen on Route 1 near Newark Airport, four miles north of Linden.

He was to be arraigned before a Newark magistrate for Linden authorities. Police said Coleman had struck the Kaminski girl on the head half a dozen times with one of the weapons. The girl, who is white, was found by Elizabeth patrolmen Joseph Sheridan and Joseph Brennan. She was running hysterically on Magnolia Street just minutes after she load been released.

UNIFAX Five BuHclings Go Up in Flames At Rensenvilie BENSENVILLE, 111. (UPI ~Five stores in the central business district lay in ruins today after a fire Friday that raged for three hours. Firemen from Bensenville and the neighboring towns of Wood Monroe—her The woman who held many clues to the brief life and early suicide of the famed movie star has been in nursing homes and sanitariums off and on for the past 29 years. On Thursday, Mrs. Gladys Baker Eley, 60, escaped from the Rockhaven Sanitarium in a foothill section of Glendale. Early yesterday a Baptist minister found her sitting on the steps of a church 15 miles away in the Sun Valley section of the San Fernando Valley. Not Satisfied "I'm looking for a Christian Science institution," she told the Rev. Brian Reid. "I don't like it where I am now." She identified herself as Marl* lyn Monroe's mother, and explained: "I don't want any of Marilyn 's money. If I had it 1 would give it away to needy people." The actress' will left most of her $1 million estate to her former acting coach, Lee Strasberg. But it provided $5,000 a year for the care of Mrs. Eley. "This was the first trouble we've had with her in the 10 years she has been here," said a sanitar* ium spokesman. She said Mrs. Eley knotted together two nurse's uniforms, slipped out through an 18-indi square window in a closet, ancj lowered herself 8 feet to the ground with the makeshift rope. Gladys Baker was a Hollywood film cutter when Norma Jean Ba* ker was born out of wedlock in 1926. She suffered a nervous breakdown when the girl was 8, and the child who was to become Marilyn Monroe was raised by a dozen sets of foster parents.
