Army Tries fa Outnumber the Rioters WASHINGTON (AP) - In the year it has been going into slums to quell riots the Army has found it's batter to try to outnumber rioters than to out* shoot them. Only about 15 bullets were used in coping with the recent wave of looting and burning in Washington, according to o.ffl* cial reports, the troops did not injure anyone with gunfire. But tear gas was used liberally, The violence in Washington and scores of other cities was a crucial test of the Army's tac* tics for coping with civil disorders, Negroes in more than 100 cities reacted to the death of Dr, Martin Luth-?r King Jr, by some form of disorder and about 40 lives were lost. By comparison, the Newark and Detroit riots last year had a combined toll of 66. Thus, top officers say the Army feels the recent disorders show the homework the Army has been doing for months, has been time well spent, Swift mobilization of power and restraint In applying it are the keys to stopping disorder in its tracks, officials said. The Army poured more than 26,000 soldiers into Washington, Baltimore, and Chicago, the three sorest spots in the nation' wide siege of street violence, These regulars were backed up by 14,800 National Guardsmen who were "federalized"— called up and added to the regu- HOP!

Across the nation the rule that officials made stick, with few exceptions, was that soldiers and Guardsmen display their weapons but keep them vnload- ed. In a situation where firing seemed called for, it was to be resorted to only on the order of an officer or, lacking an officer, a noncommissioned officer. Post mortem, 1 ? showed there was no such tight rein on shooting for Newark and Detroit in 1961. The tactics of restraint came in for criticism from Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., who said he would prefer that police use guns to stop fleeing looters. "It might cost a few lives to be strong and enforce the law/' he said, "but I don't see that we are too badly off if a few professional robbers, thieves and arsonists do lose their lives plying that kind of trade." Whitney M« Young Jr., hend of the Urban League, complained the thoughts of moderate Negro leaders are often ig- nared or given scant attention by news media he said are more concerned with coverage of militants. Young singled out the way the media concentrate on the statements of Black Power leader Stokely Carmichael. Leftists in Berlin Order Blockade By HUBERT J. ERB Associated Press Writer BERLIN (AP) - Leftist students ordered a blockade of publisher Axel Springer's newspapers today, raising the pros* pect of more trouble after four days of violent demonstrations in West Berlin. The Socialistic Students Association — or SDS-SAID it would set up blockades in West Berlin, Frankfurt, Esslingen and Hanover. Springer, continental Europe's biggest publisher, has been a chief target of the German New Left because of Ids papers' antileft editorial stand. Earlier blockades led to clashes with police and considerable diimnge to trucks and buildings. In an effort to reconcile the dissidents and the authorities, other West Berlin political and youth groups announced plans for "nuke a new start" rally today. Leftist demonstrations begun Thursday when SDS leader Rudi Dutschke was shot and critically wounded by a gunman on West Berlin's main street, the Kurfuerstendarnm. A demonstration on tliat street Sunday erupted into a clash betweou thousands of Dutschke's supporters aud hundreds of police, plunging the traditional Easter parade of strolling Berliners and tourists into chaos. The demonstrators shouted "Nazis" at the police and clunt- ed. "Ho-Ho-Ho-CId Mlnli" and "Hull DutschKe." They huddled together rather than retreating when water cannon opened up at point-Wank range. In a three-hour niilee, the leftists flung atones, pieces of iii' tul, fruit, firecrackers and paint and tried to pile larders across the street. At least three cojistruction trucks were knocked over. For EARLY WEEK BARGAIN HUNTERS PRICES EFFECTIVE THROUGH WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17. QUANTITY RIGHTS RESERVED. COPYRIGHT iocs, THE KROGER CO.
