If the winds of campaign fortune blow in Robert F. Kennedy's direction, will the first family have a housing problem? Not likely. There are rooms in the little-discussed third floor added in Coolidge's administration that are seldom used as living quarters. Blair Mouse across the street now serves as the President's official guest house. Where sleeping room is concerned, the White House could easily hold a family as large as the Kennedys. It simply has never been put to the test. Presidential families have traditionally quartered on the Brown Sentenced to 5 Years NEW ORLEANS (AP) - H. Rap Brown was convicted Wednesday night of violating the National Firearms Act and was given the maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $2,000 fine. Brown, 24, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, was freed on bond pending appeal after the biracial jury returned its verdict in federal court. Under terms of the $15,000 bond, Brown's travel was restricted to the Southern District of New York State. The immediate sentencing by U.S. District Judge Lansing L. Mitchell was at the request of William M. Kunstler, of New York, chief defense attorney for the Black Power advocate. Kunstler included a plea for leniency, describing the government case as an effort to "silence" Brown, a frequent and fiery speaker at civil rights rallies. "It is time this persecution must stop and this is persecution of the most blatant sort!" cried Kunstler. "We recall that everything Adolf Hitler did was variety of roles. For Eisenhower, it was a painting studio. It served as a school room for Caroline Kennedy and a teen-age rec room for Luci Baines Johnson. Housing problems, it would appear, are the least of the concerns of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy at this point. "If the White House isn't big enough," he said at a recent news conference, "we'll move people out of the Stato Department." Son Michael, 10, was quoted as saying recently: "We have been told that if daddy is elected president we can still go right on living here." "Here" is Hickory Hill, the current Kennedy home in nearby McLean, Va., where life, by all accounts, is a showcase of 20-karat vitality. The touch football games in which everyone participates are already history. There are also tennis courts, a swimming pool, stables, horse jumps and general free-lance adventuring, in which everyone takes part. A neighbor, the story goes, once told of trying to catch Kennedy kids in the act of swinging from one of their tree branches onto his garage roof. Waiting inside the garage, he finally heard one small bump on the roof, then a n o t h e r—and then a large THUMP!

The decision hinged on the issue of whether Brown knew he was under indictment in Maryland at the time he traveled from New York City to Baton Houge, La., Aug. 16, 1967, with an Ml carbine in Us luggage, then flew back to New York Aug. 18 carrying the same gun. A Dorchester County, Md., grand jury returned the indictment Aug. 14 on charges of arson and inciting to riot, based on Brown's speech at a civil rights rally in Cambridge, Md. Kunstler argued that Brown was not notified of the indictment, had not learned of it through newspaper stories or news broadcasts, and that therefore the gun cliarge was invalid. LaCour said it was preposterous to say that neither Brown nor lus lawyer, Kunstler, know of the indictment, in view of news stories about the legal action. Judge Mitchell had ruled, at the start of the trial, that any knowledge of the indictment was enough to sustain the gun charge.

It warned against expecting to "win at the conference table what we have not won on the battlefield" and against "losing at the conference table what we have fought so liard, and given so much, to protect." While the group favored exploring for "a reasonable time" prospects for a peaceful settlement, it rated poor the chances for productive negotiations now. The 1,700-word statement on "Negotiations: Hopes versus Realities" was issued by a 14- man special panel on negotiations, The citizens committee was organized last fall by former Sen. Paul H. Douglas, D-UL, and includes both living ex-presidents—Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman—in its nationally known membership of about 190. It labels itself a nonpartisan group setting forth the views of the "silent center' of U.S. public opinion on Vietnam as distinguished from vocal critics of the right and left. Its past expressions have been generally favorable toward Johnson administration ixilicy.
