Boston Chicago Cincinnati Denver Fairbanks Fort Worth Helena Honolulu Kansas City Las Vegas Los Angeles MinneapoUs New York Oklahoma City Palm Springs Sacramento Salt Lake City San Francisco Seattle Washington WASHINGTON (UPI)- Gea Douglas MacArthur's heart and kidney functions continued to deteriorate, a medical bulletin said today. Army Surgeon General Leonard S. Heaton said in a statement at 10:17 a. m. EST that the continued deterioration of the kidney function had prompted insertion of a tube through MacArthur's stomach into his kidney to help in climmation of wastes. Officials at Walter Reed Army Medical Center announced this afternoon that there was no change in JIacArlhur's condition, described as critical since Sunday; Today's gloomy report followed an announcement late Wednesday that the 84-year-old general's chances of recovering from three major operations in 24 days were "not good." A device inserted mto Mac Arthur's kidney to aid in its function is similar to an artificial kidney, Heaton said. It uses a saUne'solution to attract impurities and filter them out of the body. The system is known as peritoneal dialysis. A couple hours before Heaton's report, there was a call issued for six pints of blood to be donated as a reserve for MacArthur. A hospital spokesman said the Wood request, fiUcd almost immediately by personnel at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, was made "just in case he needed some more."

Jacob K. Javits proposed today that the civU rights biU be amended to let the attorney gen eral initiate suits to protect Negroes against police brutality and other abuses. The New York RepubUcan at the same time cited messages from sL\ Republican governors, including three presidential prospects, as examples of "positive and clear" GOP support for the House-passed bill. Before Javits spoke. Sen. Richard B. Russell, field marshal of southern forces, told the Senate that the bill's supporters have "an army of investi gators" to provide them with stafisfics on voting rights. Much of the data, however, is "false and misleading," he said. Russell contended that apathy is the mam factor in failure of Negroes to vote in larger numbers in the South. The Georgia Democrat said the JusUce Department is sup- plj-ing the bill's backers with all the information they want but also can withhold "such reports Federal board to aid Alaska recovery WASHINGTON (UPI) -President Johnson today called to a meeting this afternoon of a special federal commission he named Wednesday to help plan Alaska's long - range recovery from the Good Friday earthquake. The White House said Johnson wanted to discuss with the com mission, headed by Sen. Clinton P. .Anderson, D-N.M., the objec lives of the group "and what he hopes and anUcipates will come out" of its work. Moving on yet another front Johnson declared Uie Crescent City, Calif., area, badly dam aged by a tidal wave that fol lowed the Alaskan earthquake, a major disaster area. The designaUon, requested by Gov. Edmund G. Brown, applies to Del Norte County, in eluding Crescent City. State au thoriUes estimate damage of more t!:an $10 million from the tidal wave at Crescent City. Ca suaUUes totaled 10 dead and 25 injured. Besides setting up the federal commission Wednesday to draft long-range federal help to Alas ka, Johnson announced he would ask Congress for $50 million for immediate relief to the state. The White House said exact amounts of federal funds to be allocated to the Crescent City area imder Johnson's action today would depend on reports from survey teams there rep resenting the Office of Emergen cy Planning. In addition to the quake aid, Johnson concentrated today on international matters, presumably highhghted by the revolt in Brazil. He conferred with Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara by telephone during the morning and wet with the National Security Council at noon. This was described by Press Secretary George E. Reedy as a general review of the world situaUon." The President announced the special Alaska aid commission and his plans to seek a special appropriation Wednesday. Brazil's rebel troops win control of Porto Alegre Nixon says South Viet Nam 'critical' S.\IGON, South Viet Nam (UPI)—Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon said today that South Vict Nam is a "very _ critical battle area" and because as be injurious to their "slde'ofl"^ 'his he docs not want to dis-i^jm^ts of St. John County the controversy." i^uss poUtics during his stay' By H. DENNY DAVIS United Press IntemaKonal RIO DE JANEIRO (UPI) — The War Ministry aimounced today that rebel troops had won control of Porto Alegre where President Joao Goulart pledged a last-ditch fight against his ouster. The official statement issued at 9:30 a.m. PST made no mention of the fate of Goulart or that of his anti-U.S. brother-in- law, Federal Deputy Leonel Brizola. The war ministry statement said: "The federal garrison of Porto Alegre has adhered to the (rebel) movement to restore (constitutional) legality, e.xtin- guishmg the last pocket of (loyal) resistance in the country." The ministry announcement apparently confirmed earUer reports that Goulart's defenses were crumbling in Porto Alegre, capital city of Rio Grande Do Sul State which is Goulart's home ground. Reports from Argentine border points had reported whole sale defections by border units of Brazil's 3rd Army, last of the country's four military com' mands to back Goulart. Subsequent rebel radio reports said "nearly all resistance has ended" m Porto Alegre. The radio station of the newspaper Jomal Do Brasil quoted a congressman, Alexandre Machado da Silva, from Florianap olis, in Santa Catarina State, as saying he had just driven there from Porto Alegre to "report the city's fall" because its radio stations were off the air. Florianapolis is about an hour's drive from Porto Alegre. Taken Over by Troops Da Silva said: "Brazilians: Porto Alegre has now been occupied by victorious anti-Communist troops headed by Gen. Cordeiro Farias. 'It was not necessary for the 2nd Army to arrive and free us. It was the 3rd Army, inside the city, that courageously restored legality to the state of Rio Grande Do Sul." Rebel sources in Rio said pro- Goulart radio stations in Porto Alegre had gone off the air and interpreted this as an end his resistance to his ouster. Congress, meanwhile, installed Ranieri MazzilU, speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, as provisional president and he set about creating a new govern ment. Goulart, however, stoutly maintained he continued the legal president. In Porto Alegre, Goulart told a news conference he had not resigned, would not resign and would resist efforts to oust him. He said he was "mystified" at congress' action in swearing m MazzilU as provisional presi dent. He said he had no plans to fiee Brazil and felt himself free to go anywhere in the country. The crisis between the anti- Communist rebels and Goulart appeared to be nearing a showdown in the "cowboy state" of Rio Grande Do Sul where Goulart still had army support. The president had fled there from Rio after pausing in Brasilia, the capital, where he disclosed he had refused rebel demands that he quit to, Rebel generals began the revolt against Goulart Tuesday night in protest against his drift to the left which the generals said was headmg the country toward commimism. The anti-Goulart "Radio Liberty" station, broadcasting from Sao Paulo, said today a destroyer and two torpedo boats had been sent to blockade Porto Alegre, "aiding 2nd army (rebel) troops" who are marching on the city. Mazzilli was sworn in at the presidential palace in Brasilia 35 minutes after Senate President Auro Moura Andrade had formally notified a 9-mmute joint session of Congress that Goulart had "abandoned the presidency." Brazil has no vice president, and Mazzilli as speaker of the Chamber of Deputies was first in line of succession to the presidency. The provisional president, in an "inaugural" speech, appealed for the help of Congress and the armed forces to "dissipate the anguished crisis of the Brazilian nation."

Mrs. Alexandria Cowen, 39, checked into the Statler Hilton Hotel shortly before midnight and was assigned room 152C. Police said she may have been under the impression her room was on the I5tb floor when she cUmbed out a window above busy Wilshire Boulevard. A passerby saw the woman and called pohce but when officers arrived Mrs. Cowen already had leaped, breaking her fall on a guy wire stretched between the hotel and a decorative palm tree. The combination of the taut guy we which she snapped with her chest and thick foliage on the ground 20 feet below apparently spared the victim's life, officers said. Still conscious, she was taken (b County Hospital for treatment of chest lacerations, a fractured skull and other injuries. She told hospital attendants she came here from her Livennore home because "there were no tall buildings there."

Rockefeller today defended Henr>- Cabot Lodge from what he said was a "slandcr- icus" attack on the Ambassador's position on Communism. Rockefeller, swinging toto Southern California in his quest for the Republican Presidential nomination, reiterated his belief that Lodge "is running and running hard" against him but described Lodge as a "long-time friend" and "a great public servant." The New York Governor displayed at a news conference on the XJCLA campus a pamphlet which he said was put out by "the Conservative Society of America" and bore this heading, "How Soft on Communism is Henry Cabot Lodge?" 'I bitterly resent the implica tion put forth in this pamphlet,' said Rockefeller. He pointed out that Lodge, now in Saigon as Ambassador to Viet Nam, will not be on the California primary ballot as a Presidmtial candidate but will be on the ballot in the Oregon primary May 15. 'I thmk Ambassador Lodge should come home and talk to the voters in Oregon and give them a chance to see him," said Rockefeller. In connection with "Conservative Society" pamphlet he said it urged voters to back Sen. Barry Goldwater but he added, I would assume and I would hope that Sen. (Joldwater would denounce this sort of Uterature just as stirongly as I have."

Officer warns of zombie reactions in disaster COLORADO SPRINGS (UPI) — A medical Army officer warned Wednesday of "zombie reactions" among citizens caught in an unexpected disaster. Lt Col. William E. Mayer of Ft. Monroe, Va., said the reaction amounts to a numbed mind —"A kind of confused, seeming retardation of action in thinking." Mayer, speaking to delegates at a Health Mobilization'Train ing Course, said doctors must be prepared for this kind of reaction so that it does not complicate the aftermath of a large crisis such as the disastrous earthquake suffered in Alaska last Friday. He said dociors might assist persons with "zombie reaction" by directing their . activity to some type of work to "ventilate' their emotions. Mayer warned that in any disaster "a great moral responsibility devolves on medical personnel." He said even persons uninjured tended to tiun to medical persons to take charge of things. The talk was sponsored by the State Health Department, Mrs. Peabody was jailed Tuesday when she and a biracial group refused to leave a restaurant Eighty - eight more demonstrators were arrested Wednesday.

U.S., Russia hold talks on nuclear weapons GENEVA (UPI) — The United States announced today it has been holding private talks with the Soviet Union on a possible agreement to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. American disarmament negotiator Adrian S. Fisher accused the Russians of blocking agreement however, by presenting poUtical arguments agamst the projected midtilateral nuclear force (MLF) for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Soviet chief negotiator Semyon Tsarapkin, in a follow up speech before the 17-nation disarmament conference, said the United States "prefers a nuclear alliance with the Bundes- wehr (West German army) than to have au agreement on non-dissemination." West German participation in the MLF has tong been the target for communist propaganda attacks. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, D-Conn., charged today that those who advocated "passive acceptance of communism in Cuba were retreating to isolationism. In a speech prepared for Sen ate delivery, Dodd said "some of those who understood the illusion of 'fortress America' isolationism have now become advocates of an essential identical brand of isolationism." "They appear to believe that our security and our freedom would not be affected even if the major part of the hemi sphere and, for that matter, of the free world were to go Communist," he said. The Connecticut senator predicted a revolt in Cuba "in the not too distant future." He said that "what we say and what we do can expedite the process or slow it down."

Startling changes in tide levels in Alaska KODIAK, Alaska (UPI) Startling changes m tide levels have resulted in parts of Alaska from Good Friday's eartl?- quake. Navy, officials reported Wednesday. Four days after the earthquake and tidal waves, tides at this city o^ the northeast end of Kodiak Island contmued to run exactly eight feet higher than levels shown in the tide tables. Cmdr. William Simon, executive officer of the Kodiak Naval Station, said the tides were appearing at normal times. Tides at the southwestern end of the island were at normal levels, Simon said. The change at the northern end indicated to fishermen and Navy officials that the massive earthquake caused part of the island to sink or tilt deeper into th« North Pacific. Simon received reports that tides at Valdez, on the Alaska mainland, were running 9 to 14 feet lower than the tide table figures. This indicates that the earth crust have have been shoved up sharply m that area. 3.9 million hold two jobs WASHINGTON (UPI)—.\bout 3.9 million Americans hold two or more jobs.
