Clergymen and leaders of the Congress of Racial Equality decided to postpone the march on the privately owned, segregated park "as an action of good faith." They announced the postponement at a meeting called after the Baltimore County Council had voted unanimously Monday night to establish a human relations council. Spiro T. Agnew, Baltimore County executive, was notified of the postponement. Meeting with the CORE leaders were members of the interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, an organization of Negro clergymen. A Presbyterian minister had been scheduled to lead the march on the amusement park on Baltimore's northwestern outskirts, where some 380 persons were arrested in two previous massive demonstrations.

The statement added that despite "such unfriendly actions," the Russians will do everything possible "not to deepen the existing differences" with the Chinese.

T NEW HOTEL—Shriners from Atlanta, Ga., undoubtedly recalled Gen. Sherman's famous "March to the Sea" when they renamed Chicago's Sherman House, the Robert E. Lee Hotel. It was approximately 100 years ago that Sherman burned a path across the South, but at the same time burned it into the memory of the Shriners attending the 89th convention of their order. Actually the hotel wasn't named after the Civil War general.

More than 500 mounted patrols, 1,000 singers in groups of chanters, an estimated 500 clown groups and other floats composed the parade. More than 110,000 Shriners from 167 temples in the United States, Mexico and Canada, and their families and friends, have arrived in Chicago for the Shrine's 89th Imperial Council. Firecrackers exploded in the Loop Monday and streets buzzed with activity as Shriners began their rounds of handshaking and greetings. Motorized rigs of all sorts were unlimbered for the huge parade today and another Thursday. The five-day convention opened Sunday with worship services at Medinah Temple, with some 5,000 Shriners and their families attending. Chicago area commuters were serenaded Monday by one highly polished banjo player, comfortably seated in an open top wagon before a battery of microphones. In other parts of the Loop, impromptu drum and bugle corp sessions blared forth. Throughout the evening and into the night, motorcycles and scooters sped among the parked rigs standing ready for the parade- justice. Wolfe said Kennedy's plan called for Goldberg to announce his decision in the dispute before the Supreme Court opens its fall term. The five unions representing some 200,000 men who work aboard trains have insisted they will strike immediately if the railroads go through with their plan to impose the new work rules. Wolfe said, however, the rules would not be promulgated if both sides accept the suggestion that Goldberg spend the summer arbitrating the issues. The main issue is whether the railroads will be free to replace up to 37,000 firemen on diesel locomotives in freight or yard service. The carriers contend the workers are not needed. Youths Die When Auto Plunges Into Canyon JEROME, Ariz. (AP) — Two youths, one the son of a former Elgin, 111., doctor, were killed when their car plunged to the bottom of a 200-foot-deep canyon. The Arizona Highway Patrol said Peter Phillips, 16, son of Dr. and Mrs. Melvin Phillips, appar* ently was driving when the ve« hide jumped a guard rail on U.S. 80 about one mile west of Jerome.

Bucking Met at Victoria Station by Queen Elizabeth n, the royal party drove in state carriages to the palace. Britain's tightest peacetime security the guard kept queen and her visitors from even the demonstrators seeing who tried to mar the welcoming procession. Police beat back youthful pickets as the Greek king and queen entered Buckingham Palace to begin the four-day state visit. "We aren't provoking violence," protested Kenneth Brown, 18, a student. *We just want to picket the palace." The most determined effort to spoil the royal arrival was at the side of the palace. "About 50 of our people wanted to stage a demonstration outside the palace," said Terry Chandler, 23, who described himself as chairman of a Save Greece Now Committee. But the police roughed up and wouldn't let us," he said. The nearest thing to an incident between the visiting royal couplo and demonstrators came in a side street near the station, Woman Screams hush Screaming, "Release my band, release him, M Mrs. Betty Ambatielos, British-born wife of an imprisoned Greek Communist was dragged away by the police. Mrs, Ambatielos, 45, was released after the royal procession passed. The demonstrators were far from giving up. "We aim to follow the king and queen everywhere they go, Every time they appear in public, we'll be there," said a spokesman for Britain's militant Committee of 100, which charges Greece is holding 960 political prisoners and demands their release.
