(AP) The AFL-CIO's 3rd Congressional District Committee on Political Education called Saturday for passage of a bill that would authorize officials of any governmental unit to participate in collective bargaining with em- ploye unions. The group adopted a resolution which said, "We do not want another Memphis in Arkansas." Memphis Mayor Henry Loeb m has refused to bargain with his city's striking garbage workers on grounds that he is not authorized to do so. It was while he was in Memphis to lead a peaceful demonstration in behalf of the strikers that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot down. VIOLENCE from Page One Pittsburgh police. Both Craig and Lt. Col. Joseph Dussia, deputy commissioner of state police, pointed out that there had been relative calm in the predawn hours today. Craig said the violence followed a "pattern of individually inclined hoodlums." He said there was no indication of prodding by agitators or outside organizations. Earlier in the night, gangs of vandals pitched firebombs and stormed liquor stores. A lumber yard burned down in the Strip District, adjacent to the troubled Hill District. Twenty-four have died in the trouble which struck more than a dozen U.S. cities. In addition, more than 1,200 have been injured and almost 6,000arrested.

About .'-Too persons attended the district COPE organizational meeting, which will screen congressional candidates and make recommendations to the state AFL-CIO.

"We call on our congressmen and senators to support legislation that will insure equal opportunity for all citizens in every phase of our American way of life. The time for talk is over. Our state and our country must act now to achieve economic and social justice for all people." Negro Named by Legion Group HURON, SJX (AP) - William P.

Police said it appeared to be the work of arsonists. Violence in Baltimore broke out Saturday and threatened to spread Sunday into Baltimore County, causing Maryland Gov. Spiro T. Agnew to call nor federal troops. Almost 2,000 soldiers rushed to the city to aid 6,000 National Guardsmen, and shortly after midnight officials said the situation seemed to be under control. Four persons were killed in the violence and more than 300 injured. One official said there had been 420 fires set, 550 stores lotted and more than 1,350 persons arrested. More than 1,800 National Guardsmen marched Into Pittsburgh's predominantly Negro Hill District Sunday night, but by early today a state police official said "things are settling down." Scattered firebombings and looting were reported far into the night, but the frequency dropped sharply about three hours after a 7 p.m. curfew went into effect. The streets were almost deserted by late evening. The shaky calm in Chicago and the nation's capital was being enforced by 32,000 Army troops and National Guardsmen. Cyrus Vance, President Johnson's riot troubleshooter In Washington, said shortly before midnight: "The city appears to be experiencing another night of relative calm. We are not yet out of the woods, but I am hopeful the encouraging trend will continue." Washington Mayor Walter E. Washington announced a series of emergency measures to "meet the human needs." Long Unas form-id outside the few ••jpen supermarkets and community groups collected food for nuals and tried to find ways to provide cash for families left penniless by the disaster.

Residents of Cliicago, where nine persons died In a wave of violence, burning and looting, also tried to resume normal life.

Organized Religion Called Dead FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Dr. James Kavanaugh, the former Roman Catholic priest who crit cized the church as being outdated and married a nurse, said here Sunday that organized religion was pretty much dead. "It's a pity it has to die," Kavanaugh said. "We'll miss it." Kavanaugh, who made the remarks at a public lecture, said he was not sure the current generation of college-age students would miss organized religion. "But for many of us the church has been a nostalgic subculture," he said, Kavanaugh said he did not think united church groups and "store-front' churches would bring more relevance to religion. "When you unite irrelevance, you still get irrelevance," he said. "As for the store-front churches, as. a church implies creed and code. Why don't you call it a community? A community takes you like you are." FINAL RITES from Page One dead through the back entrance of the main cemetery. Back door treatmont can no longer be tolerated by Negores, said the Rov. Ralph Abernar- thy, taking up the leadership of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. "In losing Dr, King, the black people have made the greatest sacrifice in their history," he said. "Such a loss can only be redeem*! by a social gain of toe same magnitude. "White Amarica has the opportunity to rise to greatness r,c this moment by burying hesitation and delas, by properly honoring the most moral man of this century, by liberating black Americans and all the poor, black and ivhite." He and 88 others planned to fly to Memphis to support striking garbage workers, who were being backed by King when he w;is assassinated Thursday night by a sniper. He said Mrs. King would be in the party although she later told newsmen her plans still were tentative. Dozens of other followers of King were grappling with problems of feeding, housing and transporting his admirers who started converging on Atlanta Sunday. Private homes and churches were opened to take in those who could not find or afford lodging in this Georgia city that was readying itself for up to 100,000 visiting mourners. Officials of the Southern Christian Leadership Confer' ence, which King formed, said they expected President Johnson or Vice President Humphrey for the funeral. A source close to the White House said it was doubtful the President would be able to attend.
