All of the dead were Negroes. They were shot to death, some victims of the intense crossfire that flared at times between Negro snipers and police supported by National Guardsmen. Another Negro was slain in Tuesday night's initial outbreak. Two guardsmen suffered gunshot wounds, neither serious. A fireman was wounded in the abdomen and underwent surgery. There were more than 60 arrests. Most of the fires were out by dawn. Some were allowed to burn because of sniper fire. Firemen were pinned dowti at three locations during the night. The violence resumed around nightfall Wednesday after a day of uneasy calm. During the peak of violence police sealed off an area from 27th to 34th streets between Prospect and Benton, about 24 square blocks. Snipers cliallenged police and guardsmen from rooftops and cars, shooting and running or driving from vantage point to vantage point. The snipers were countered with tear gas and by strike forces of police rifle squads and supporting guardsman. Other police officers served as rooftop spotters for their riflomenbelow. At one point in the heat of the battle National Guardsmen requested and received more ammunition. An additional guard force patrolled a perimeter of 24 blocks by IG blocks around the devastated section. State highway patrolman supplemented depleted police units elsewhere in the city. Gov. Warren E, Hearnes ordered 700 members of a military battalion from central and eastern Missouri to Kansas City, bringing guardsmen on emergency duty here to approx- SHORT RIBS 40 woolsey icoarse cloth) 43 Hodice 4:i Hoasting rods 4ti Ireland 47 Number 48 Preposition 50 Underdone, as a steak 51 Passage in the brain 52 Driving command ipl ) 55 Heply <ab ) imately 3,000. The governor looked over the situation himself Wednesday night, and said there was no need for federal troops at this time. "We can say the troops we have here along with the highway patrol and police are doing a job everybody can be proud of," he told newsmen. A force of 40 guardsman in an armored car rescued two ambulance drivers pinned under their vehicle by sniper fire while they were on an emergency call to pick up wounded civilians. An area-wide curfew until 6 a.m. today was invoked on both sides of the Missouri-Kansas state line. A unit of 64 Kansas National Guardsmen was' "Stationed at principal intersections of Johnson County, across the line from Kansas City. Missouri cars without legitimate business in Kansas were turned back. Public schools in Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan., began their Easter vacations a day early today because of the riots. Parochial schools in both cities followed suit. Classes are scheduled to resume Tuesday. McCarthy Has Changed Way of Thinking By WALTER R. MEARS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Two primaries and two candidates ago, Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy wryly remarked that his Democratic campaign for the White House was taking "a controlled fall." He doesn't joke about it that way now. For the Minnesota Democrat lias experienced victory, has sampled the prospect that what once seemed a futile gesture could actually lead him to the presidency. Where once he spoke of an effort to change the course of a Democratic administration on war in Vietnam, now McCarthy talks of making his party's race against former Vice President Richard M, Nixon, the front- running candidate for the Republican nomination.

For the past two years, Watson, a former executive assistant to the president of Lone Star Steel Co., in Dallas, has held the influential White House job of helping to decide who gets to talk with Johnson, Other native Texans in the Cabinet include Secretary of Commerce C, R. Smith and Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark. For a President who demands secrecy, Watson was a perfect aide, He rarely would discuss anything about his chief's operations and masked his own reactions with an innocent smile. One of the few times during his service oft Johnson's inti<;r»,, circle staff that "Wtit^flf.,, :,*if-faced publicly wflfc 4 Wfa"-'•)$! launched a ehocR ! 'o,r White House telephone call.s» » - > Some .staff mornbors and newsmen thought hfe might,fa checking on them. But Watsoh said he was only conducting a survey of the White House switchboard to effect some effi* clencies and economies, Although he has never run for public life, Watson has been ac« tive in Democratic politics since the early 1950s, when he became Chamber of Commerce manag« er, city secretary and city judge in Daingerfleid, Tex. A Marine veteran of World War H, he came out of service to work his way through Baylor University by selling cover-alls and arranging dances. He earned a masters degree in eco« nomics there, taught in the eco» nomics department for two terms and spent nine months selling hearing aids in San Antonio before taking the Chamber of Commerce job. By 1958, he had come up through the ranks to membership on the Texas State Democratic Executive Committee and became its chairman in 1964. Watson is married to the former Marion Baugh, and they have three children: Winston, a 21-year-old University of Maryland student; Kimberly, 17, who attends Mount Vernon Seminary, and 4-year-old William Marvin Watson HI. fittntfi Won/Bo of Enemy By At* (AP) government sc-tirees say can military patrols probing out from the 6nce*besieged Khg Sanh base have found more than 800 North Vietnamese' bed? ies, most of them unbtfrled. The sources cited this as a8 Indicator of how badly the Co munist troops who once rounded the outpost suffered from U,S. artillery and air bombing. & they said the 829 bodies found since April 1 represent a prett* tninary count and that they em pect a much higher total afte^, U,S. forces comb the mountainous area, 5X Many bodies were In mass graves but most were unburled. This was Interpreted by the government sources as a sign the Communists suffered a command breakdown and possibly morale problems toward the end of the more than two-month siege, which was lifted last Week, Military officials disputed the." view, expressed in some diplomatic quarters, that the North 1 Vietnamese voluntarily lifted, the siege to emphasize Hanoi's" willingness to talk peace. ,^ WASHINGTON (AP>- Three Arkansas House members— two Democrats and a Republican- announced jointly today for reelection. Making the announcement were Reps. Wilbur D. Mills and David Pryor, Democrats, and John Paul Hammerschmidt, Republican. Arkansas' fourth House member, Rep. E. C. Gainings, Democrat, has announced his plans to retire from Congress at the end of this year. Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., previously has announced he will be a candidate for a fifth six-year term. Auto Rate Hike .. Ruling Delayed LITTLE ROCK (AP) - State Insurance Commissioner Allan W. Home said Wednesday he would defer his decision on a request for an increase on auto insurance rates sought by rating bureaus until he hears from an insurance rate expert the AFL-CIO hired to ask Home to reopen hearings held in February. The AFL-CIO objected to the size of the liability insurance raise sought by rating bureaus and hired George Shadoan of Washington, who had until Wednesday to file written views of the testimony presented at the rate hearings. with New Hampshire's startling primary verdict on March 12: a 42 per cent vote for McCarthy, 20 of 24 Democratic convention votes for him. The two candidates followed, one in each direction. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., entered the race March 16, and McCarthy has been taunting him ever since as a tardy arrival. And President Johnson stepped aside on March 31. Then came McCarthy's April 2 Wisconsin primary landslide, a 57 per cent share of the vote. Kennedy wasn't on the ballot there, but he will be in Indiana on May 7. And McCarthy has acknowledged the primary tests may prove m .-re difficult to his cause. But he insists he will wage to the end—the Democratic National Convention in Chicago— the campaign he announced or t Nov. 30. And the nujor shift, from an effort to fo:us internal Democratic debate on Vietnam policy to one designed to win the White House, already has occurred. It Wis, perhaps, best signaled by McCarthy's nationwide television address from Milwaukee on April 1, delivered in his familiar low-key style. "This effort is really no long, er, if it ever was, one which was concerned simply with raising issues," McCarthy said. "It was never just an educational program, although some of the critics of my effort in the early stages suggested that that was really ail that it could be. "This is my role today, this is what I am—a candidate for the nomination of the Democratic Party for the presidency of the United States of America." This was the nun who, three in wths earlier, had said that if Robert Keiinedy would challenge JoUnson "there would be no ne^ for me to try."
