Last summer more than 1,000 Negroes were arrested during a month of demonstrations climaxed by the assassination of a Negro leader. Mamie Balard, 20, of Flora, Miss., a Jackson State coed suffered a fractured leg late Monday when she was struck by a car while crossing Lynch Street,' a busy thoroughfare which cuts through the campus. Witnesses said the driver was a white person, Officers said later they had arrested the motorist, who was ticketed for failure to yield to a pedestrian. Police declined to identify the motorist. Small groups of students began to protest speeding on Lynch Street, which has a 35 mile an hour speed, limit. As the crowd grew they began marching in the street, shouting and singing "freedom songs." The milling students blocked traffic but dispersed when police arrived. Many went to a college basketball game. After the game, the demonstrations started again.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The secretly given testimony of Mrs. Marina Oswald on events preceding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy "may not be released in your lifetime," Chief Justice Earl Warren has disclosed. Warren tald the presidential investigating commission which he heads will issue a statement —perhaps Wednesday — when it finishes questioning its first witness, the slim and pretty widow of Lee Harvey Oswald. She goes before the commission again today. "I don't know how newsworthy" the commission's statement will be, Warren told reporters. He added that if it contains information affecting national security, it may be suppressed for decades —"and I say that seriously." This suggested that the commission intends to explore ns thoroughly ns posible, through Mrs. Oswald and other witnesses, delicate subjects such as Oswald's 1959 visit to Russia, his unsuccessful efforts to defect to the Soviet Union and his attempts, on a Mexican visit last September, to explain visas for Russia or Cuba. But Monday's day-long questioning of the Russian-born, 22- year-old Mrs. Oswald—who believes her Marxist husband assassinated Kennedy — dealt with Oswald's activity and movements in tho United States, after he brought his bride here. This was reported by the commission's general counsel, J. Lee Rankin, during a break in the laborious testimony-taking through a State Department interpreter. "Mrs. Oswald told us some things we hadn't heard before— somo new • things, nuvv evi- today. ..

Warren declined to confirm Rankin's reference to "new evidence" when reporters intercepted him leaving the commission's offices later. "I would not comment on a wiViess' testimony in the middle of it," the chief justice said. In the area of testimony mentioned by Rankin, the questioning presumably covered the source of the money which paid for Oswald's travels, his purchase of the mail-order rifle which Texas authorities say killed Kennedy, and any possible link between Oswald and Jack Ruby. Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner, shot Oswald to death in a Dallas police headquarters on Nov. 34, two days after the assassination. The owners of Union Station in Washington offered to sell it to the federal government for $1.

Luce 'Platform' Would End All NEW YORK (AP) - Clare Boothe Luce took dead aim at the 1964 crop of presidential andidates today and unleashed platform to end presidential latforms. It was strictly tongue in cheek —or dagger in cheek. The former Republican con- resswoman and one - time am- assador to Italy said in an inerview: "I'd enter the New lampshire primary in a min- ite if I had a campaign manger, an organization and a po- itical base. I've certainly got Uie program " The program? 'I am for the 35 - hour week increase in labor ropean Common Market as an outlet for more American chickens and British agricultural products. 'I am for doing away with all military juntas except those we bring into power. "I am for the independence and sovereignty of the young, immature African nations and the abandonment of the independence and sovereignty of all the old, mature European nations. "I am for a vigorous two • vithout any costs. "I favor a college education tor everyone regardless of race, creed or pro - entrance intelligence quotas. "I am for lifting everyone off :he social bottom. In fact, I am lor doing away with the social bottom altogether. "I «m for victory in Viet Nam without any increase in U.S. casualties or expenditures. I am also for neutralization of Viet Nam as soon as Gen. de Gaulle apologizes for having suggested it. "I am for raising living standards of the world by deep and judicious pruning of U.S. aid. "I am for licking the stuffing out of Khrushchev while relaxing U.S.-'J.S.S.R. tensions. "I am for supporting the Eu- party system in which my party will control the White House, all the governorships and ever 75 per cent of Congress." Did Mrs. Luce think the presidential race could afford another woman candidate? "Actually I nominated Sen. Margaret Chase Smith for vice president in .1952, if you remember, and I'd be delighted to vote For her if she is nominated," the blonde playwright-author said. I See... by lit* Tttoqrani Robert L.
