They all called for more jobs and action now* ''Telling the povertystricken Negro to 'cool it 1 While planning goes on has become the age-old stall," said the Rev, William Johnson of Little Rock, "our's is to be about the business of doing something, not talk," Johnson said. The Rev. James S, Allen, a Baptist minister, said mayors throughout the state should be told to practice fair employment, not just for the poor Negro but also for the poor whites, "Negroes in the ghettos have lost faith in anything ever being done," Allen said. Dr. Lawrence Davis, president of Arkansas AM&N College at Pine. Bluff, told the governor that many of the 30 Negro leaders by virtue of their business or community standing were as remote from the core of unrest as the governor and the white community. "They (the Negro masses) must help find the problem and help solve it," Davis said. "We need communication, dialogue and action. We've got to get the people busy solving the problem, not protesting it." "This effort at dealing with the problem has to spread out among the people who are not classified or recognized as leader," Davis said. -Bobby Brown, a poverty worker from Little Rock, told the governor that there .were still Negroes "on the street who don't work and have power." "There are the ones who can make or break what's happening here," Brown said. Dr. Jerry Jewell, state president of the NAACP, asked Rockefeller to issue an executive order calling for fair employment practices for the entire state and that he present a fair housing bill to the special session of the legislature next month." Jewell also rapped public utilities 'for their employment practices and asked Rockefeller to issue an executive order requiring |hem to "implement fair enjplQyment." • - - Sta. tfon report for 24 hours ending at 7 eum, Wednesday, High 68, Low 54 Forecast ARKANSAS- Clear and cool tonight, Thursday sunny and a little warmer, Low tonight low 40s to low 50s, Weather Use where By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS High Low ' Albany, cloudy 8 40 Albuquerque, clear 66 39 Atlanta, cloudy 80 53 Bismarck, cloudy 55 31 Boise, clear 67 45 Boston, cloudy 69 44 Buffalo, clear 51 33 Chicago, cloudy 64 48 Cincinnati, cloudy 64 45 Cleveland, cloudy 60 36 Denver, clear 59 30 Des Moines, clear 66 32 Detroit, clear 64 42 Fairbanks, cloudy 41 27 Fort Worth, cloudy 66 58 Helena, cloudy 60 35 Honolulu, clear 78 64 Indianapolis, cloudy 64 42 Jacksonville, cloudy 89 70 Juneau, cloudy 17 2 Kansas City, clear 69 40 Los Anreles, clear 91 62 Louisville, cloudy 63 48 Memphis, clear 66 51 Miami, clear 77 74 Milwaukee, cloudy 63 32 Mpls.-St.P., cloudy 53 30 New Orleans, cloudy 76 66 New York, cloudy 74 50 Okla.

The board voted unanimously for the audit and instructed School Supt.

Officers said Brown was captured in a parked car and said he offered no resistance. Officers were still searching for the second suspect. Police Chief R. E.

When the two go* out, one of them got behind Seats and took Seats' service pistol out of his holster, Brians said. Thomas drew his pistol and exchanged shots with the man who fired at him. Brians said both Thomas and the man fell to the ground, but that the man got up and ran off with Seats' pistol.'

The U,S. Command said the aim of the new drive is "the elimination of enemy forces throughout the 11 provinces in the 3rd Corps tactical zone." The operation involves three U.S. divisions and the equivalent of a fourth, three South Vietnamese divisions, two South Vietnamese pnratroop and marine task forces, the 1st Australian Task Force, wliich includes New Zealand troops, and the Royal Thai Army Regimont. There was no report of casualties so far in the operation.

"Sonny" Walker of Little Rock said the situation in Little Rock was "explosive" and he did not think "we can afford" a deferment. Walker said the unemployed and underprivileged Negroes no longer had faith in "talk, talk, talk." "The time has come for government to prove that nonviolence will work so we don't have to go out on the streets," said Duff Rogers, another antipoverty worker. Rockefeller invited the group to meet with the Governor's Commission on Human Relations at 2 p.m. April 18, He also said he was planning to meet with .the Arkansas Municipal League and the state's Chambers of Commerce to discuss actions designed to alleviate any unfair employment practices in the state,. Hanoi Wants Talks in Cambodia' By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Generally fair skies with temperatures in the 70s and low 80s are forecast for Arkansas through Friday. Light and variable winds should make the weather good for fishermen. The rivers and lakes are still a little high and dingy in places, but they are receding and should clear rapidly. Under the warm sunshine, water temperature will rsie slowly toward summertime conditions. Another cold front is forming to the northwest and may affect Arkansas' weekend weather. Little shower activity, however, is associated with the front. High temperatures Tuesday ranged from 76 at.Fort Smith World's most popular bev erage is tea. EASTER j Vour gilt to loyest ones at Easier lima brings special Kgr «hjn yog S .l,ct Pangbum', Milk-and-HonVy Choco "' G "' """ Village Rexall Pharmacy %%* VM§|e Stepping Center WARD & SON DRUG CO, Pfafiflfi The Hanoi government is holding out for Cambodia as the site of first talks designed to lead the way to poace in the Vietnam war. North Vietnamese sources in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, told an AP reporter there today that Cambodia's willingness to welcome the negotiators makes it unnecessary to look elsewhere. Earlier, Hanoi had suggested that ths talks be held in Phnom Penh "or any other mutually agreeable place" in Asia. The Hungarian news agency, in a dispatch from Hanoi, said "political circles here term it absolutely incomprehensible that the Americans are reluctant to send their representatives to Phnom Penh." The United States has no diplomatic relations with Cambodia, and has suggested that lack of adequate communications from that city weighed against a nu-eting there. Controversy over the site is the first roadblock in getting the talks under way. Hanoi has said the talks will be concerned oaly with arranging a full halt to air and sea attacks against North Vietnam. This, Hanoi insists, must precede any fullscale talks for peace. President Johnson said Tuesday he liad sent another mes* sage to Hanoi, and that the parties were discussing alternative locations, convenient to both sides, for the first talks. This message apparently was delivered today In Vientiane, Laos. At the same time, the South Koreans, a U.S. ally in Vietnam, were voicing reservations about the trend toward negotiations. Lt. Gen. Cliae Myung-shin, commander of South Korean forces in Vietnam, said in Seoul; "It was shocking to me, as it was to the Republic of Vietnam people, that Washington-Hanoi contacts for peace talks came at a timu when only a little more push Is needed to win the war."

Mony Feared Lost in Hew Zealand Wreck WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - At least 40 persons were drowned today when a big oceangoing ferry ran aground with 614 persons aboard and sank during one of the fiercest storms ever to lash New Zealand. Twelve hours after the sinking of the 8,944-ton Wahine, the search for survivors and bodies in the waters of Wellington Harbor continued under floodlights. The first police report of casualties said af least 40 persons were dead, but it appeared the total would rise. Survivors were scattered all over Wellington, in hospitals and public buildings. Compilation of lists of the dead, missing and rescued proceeded slowly. The Wahine, owned by the Union Steamship Co., hit a rocky shoal about 7 a.m. just inside Wellington Harbor as she neared the end of her daily 11- hour run up the east coast of New Zealand's South Island from Christchurch to Wellington, at the southern tip of North Island, While gales of up to 123 miles an hour made the sea boll around her, the Wahine freed herself from the shoal and anchored about a mile offshore with a hole in her hull. A tug got a line aboard but it snapped. An hour later the engineroom was flooded and the ferry rapidly listed to starboard. The order to abandon ship was given, A steward reported the evacuation started in an orderly manner, with women and children going off first. But the ship capsized and went under as passengers and crewmen were still jumping from her. The storm blew itself out and the sea calmed, leaving a strong tidal rip to the cold winter waters. The storm left a trail of flooding and damage along the southern section of Norm Island and killed at least two persons on land. Several houses In Welling- toa were demolished and dozens more were -Jeroofed by the raging winds. Girls were tumbled to the pavement by gusts. THIS IS THE YEAR, OR YOU'VE BEEN THINKING, OR ...
