Gregorio Cruz, 35. was shot in the right buttock and was reported in fair condition at the same hospital. Scattered disorders broke out through the early morning.

Until the shooting about 3 a. m., police and National Guardsmen had kept relative calm in areas hit by fire bombing, shooting and vandalism since Monday inght. Shots were fired from the passenger-side window of a car carrying two white youths, police said. Six white youths were rounded up in pairs, within minutes, but police clamped a tight lid on information. The man shot was identified as Benoris Toney, 29, a father of five. His wife said he was on the way to pick up a friend at work on the west side. He was the 10th victim of gunfire wounds in rioting that has taken three lives and caused heavy damage from fires and looting. fired. Police hunting a sniper in the area were in the parking lot when Toney was shot and took off quickly after the gunman’s car. The shooting heightened fears that riot-weary Cleveland is headed into a bad weekend. The violence Friday night moved nearer to white ethnic pockets in predominately Negro neighborhoods where racial fighting occurred in 1964. Airline Strikers Adamant Washington—L. (Roy) Siemiller, president of the striking machinists union said today talks in the 16-day airline strike were "fruitless” and that the strikers were determined not to give in. "I never saw a situation where our people were so militant,” Siemiller said of the 35.000 members who shut down operations of five major airlines. As talks resumed, Siemiller said he had been receiving many telegrams from the strikers saying, "don’t sell us out . . . stay in there . . . hold, hold, hold.” Siemiller confirmed that the talks were going nowhere except in flights of verbal accusations among the negotiators. Assistant Secretary of Labor James J. Reynolds said Friday that the talks were back on the strike issues, but Siemiller commented, "he may have been talking about them, but nobody is talking to us about them.” Robert Johnson Named Foreign Service Officer Robert D. Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Johnson, Maryville, has been named by President Johnson as a Foreign Service Officer of the United States.

The President is personally convinced that the Democrats will not lose more than 20 seats in the House and will hold their own in the Senate. This would be a significant Democratic victory because for many years the average loss of the party in power has been 41. The Republican strategists are convinced that the GOP will make a net gain in the House at least twice as large as the administration now forsees and that the party will add three to six governorships, including California. My own judgment is that, even if the Democrats score a moral victory by losing only 20 seats, such a shift in the balance in the House might well erect a considerable roadblock Weather Data MISSOURI WEATHER NORTHWEST MISSOURI — Partly cloudy to cloudy and a little warmer through Sunday with light variable winds.

The President’s confident conviction that the administration’s 2 to 1 majority in the House will be only slightly reduced, despite the traditional off-year erosion, rests upon in- depth interviews with 269 of the 294 Democratic congressmen — interviews undertaken by political professionals on the Hill dealing with each congressman’s problems and prospects. Here is their report to Johnson which, in large part, gives him an optimistic attitude about the November voting: "In 260 of the congressional districts now held by Democrats, the members report that the majority sentiment supports your policy in Viet Nam. In these 260 districts the members report that the minority which does not favor your policy feels as follows: Favors tougher policy ............ 62 districts Favors softer policy .... 43 districts Made up of doves and hawks .... 33 districts Issue insignificant................ 122 districts "However, I want to make clear that most members of Congress reported in any event that there are a lot of uneasy people who are uncertain about objectives and the purposes of the war. "In 164 districts the economy is reported as being excellent, in 84 as being good, and in the remaining 21 districts as being poor.

S. imperialist act of escalating its w ar of aggression to a new and still graver stage.” Asserting that "Agression against V iet Nam is aggression against China.” Liu said “the Chinese people have made up their minds and have made every preparation to take actions at anv time and in anv place as the Chinese and Vietnamese people deem necessary for dealing joint Walter Arms, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Arms, Maryville, has accepted a graduate assistantship at Indiana University, Bloomington, Ind.
