Plastic Bag Blamed In Death of Bahy SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) — A plastic clothes bag is blamed for the death of 7-month-old James Nance, only child of Ml 1 , and Mrs. Lee Nance. The mother, JoAnn, said she hurriedly placed the bag on !l>e side of the child's crib when she left to answer the telephone. When she returned, she said, the baby was entangled in the plastic, apparently suffocated. Coroner W. C. Telford said the plastic material apparently adhered to the infant's face out his plan to physically prevent their admittance despite an order from a federal court judge that he not interfere in any way. The university was desegregated briefly in 1956, but a mob drove the Negro student from the campus. The student, Autherine Lucy, was expelled later for making unproved charges that university officials conspired with the mob.

University officials said the campus will be sealed off Saturday. Only authorized personnel will be allowed to enter the area. Tussle in Car Ends With Crash A woman motorist, who said she was being choked by her companion jumped out of the car while is was still in gear— and the episode resulted in damage to a tavern door and fines to occupants of the car. The driver, Marie Buchanan, 27, of 2834 Residence St., told police she was driving in the 200 block of E. Broadway when her companion started choking her. He was identified as Robert Webb, 26, of 632^ 5th St. When Webb released his hold, she said, she opened the door and jumped from the car, leaving it in drive gear. The car then rolled into the front door of the Anchor Inn, 2834 E. Broadway. The woman was fined $10 and costs this morning on a charge of destruction of property. Webb was fined a total of 520 and costs on charges of assault and battery and peace disturbance. Both pleaded guilty A screen door at the tavern and the door facing were reported damaged. Policeman Throws Two Brawlers Out of Bar Two men who had to bu subdued by police when they would not leave a tavern early today were fined a total of §30 and costs each this morning after pleading guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The two were identified as Stanley Hoffman, 22, and Donald Anderson, 21, who gave the Savoy Hotel as their address. Patrolman Ray Parker answered a call to the Astroth Tavern, 602 Belle St., shortly atfer 1 a.m. when A. H. Astroth the proprietor, said two men would not leave. Parker asked the men to leave, but they refused, he said. | The two then began cursing, Parker said, and rushed toward Astroth. He grabbed one of tho men and the man fell to the floor, Parker said. The man thon got up and rushed at him, Park- er said, and the policeman threw him out the front, cloor. The other man still would not leave, Parker said, so he threw him out to the sidewalk too. The pair refused to enter the police car, Parker said, and he knocked them down again when they resisted him. Sgt. John Light arrived to give assistance-, Parker said, and the policeman bad 10 use force to get the men into the police ear and to the station. They refused to give information to police when they were booked, but the information was obtained later, police said. Integration Speedup Under Way By .JAMKS MARI.OW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (API—Tho groat flurry now by tho government, churchmen, mayors, businessmen and others to speed up desegregation raises an embarrassing question for white people, North and South. Why didn't it happen sooner? The government — and some churchmen, mayors, businessmen md others—had been moving, but it a snail's pace, to end racial .liscriniination. But Negroes had to force on ;hem the realization hey hadn't done enough fast enough. Negroes are finally fed up \vait- ng for the equal treatment to which they are justly entitled as citizens under the 1<1th Amend ment but for which they have been waiting almost 100 years since the amendment was adopted. They know at last how much strength they have if they act together. Now they are using direct action in demonstrations, in sit-ins, picketing, and boycotts. So far their action has been mostly nonviolent. It may not remain so. And white people realize it. They can't claim to be suddenly moved by the injustice of segregation. This has been evident enough for years. They are fearful that bloody riots may come if Negroes continue to be frustrated in their constitutional demands. This was made plain Thursday by a source in close touch with \ennedy administration planning. He said the administration hopes 'or a vast grassroots movement of racial conciliation to head off a possible wave of race riots Morth and South this summer. This also explains why the ad- ninistration now is going to push i number of civil rights bills at Congress next week and make a ight which it could have made before what happened in Birming- lam shook white people awake. There Negroes demonstrated peacefully even though more than 1,000 of them were arrested. But hen, when Negro dwellings were bombed, a riot began, giving a wetaste of what could happen in any places. White communities have sacrificed a lot of Negro good will by their delay in giving Negroes the equal treatment they're entitled to by law. Negroes know that what they get they have to fight for every step of the way. It wasn't until nearly the middle of the 20th Century—when the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People took a series of test cases to the Supreme Court—that one form of segregation after another was declared illegal. Nevertheless the Supreme Court carefully avoided saying the principle of segregation itself was unconstitutional. That would have meant saying that the 1896 decision that segregation was constitutional was wrong. The court finally said so in 1954. By working together—but not in a solid way and under various leaderships — Negroes over the years since 1954 began, with help of tho courts and the federal government, to break down segregation bit by painful bit. In places like Alabama and Mississippi it is still intense if no longer total. As there confidence increased Negroes began to depend on individual test cases in the courts and took to direct action, like freedom rides and all that followed. But the segregation wall is still enormous. 6 Czechs Seeking Asylum in Greece ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Six Czechoslovaks fled their Soviet cruise ship Thursday and requested political asylum in Greece, the Ministry of the Interior announced today.

The tutee in Law Doesn't Provide It No Pay for Zone Board EDWARDSVILLE — The five members of Madison County's Board of Zoning Appeals will be donating their services "free, gratis," unless some statutory provision is made for their compensation. That is the upshot of a legal opinion by Illinois Attorney General William G. Clark, received today by State's Attorney -Dick H. Mudge in response to his recent request. Atty, General Clark pointed out hat there is no specific authorization in Illinois statutes for "per diem" (working day) compensation or mileage for travel expense for members of a county board of ;oning appeals. In the absence of statutory pro- Central Ave. Sewer Repair Is Completed With repairs completed, Central Avenue sewer, was scheduled to go back into full operation this afternoon. Last replacement tile was dropped into place and the back filling was finished in the forenoon. Left for afternoon was a final itep of cutting the flow from 4th and Central into the repaired section south of that street intersection. In order to make repairs to the Central duct, town apart in a rain deluge three weeks ago, its normal flow was diverted eastward in the 4th street sewer, and the damaged line was plugged. Plan- led for this afternoon was to eliminate the diversion arrangement and reconnect the Centra! duct. vision for any compensation or mileage, Clark declared, it is his opinion that the county board of supervisors lacks authorization to provide for compensation for days of service or travel expense of members of the county's zoning board of appeals. Mudge had been directed to seek the attorney general's opinion after it was explained tliat the zoning appeals body, whose appointments were confirmed March 20 by the county board of supervisors, has been serving without any compensation or mileage allowance to and from the county seat or for inspection of premises where changes in zoning classifications are sought. Members of the zoning board of appeals are Harry Taake, Troy, $11,478 Sales Tax For Madison County A total of $11,478 in state sales and service taxes was collected in Madison County during March, the Illinois Department of Revenue announced today.

Police Car Used As Radio Station Alton police department used used the radio installation in a squad car for almost an hour today to maintain emergency contact with other police cars. The arrangement was adopted after an electric power circuit to the police suite jif city hall failed and after 'trouble" later developed with a gasoline powered emergency generator in the police basement. Ordinarily the emergency generating unit supplies power for the police radio system when lighting current is interrupted. It was used for about 10 minutes today before it joined the lighting circuit in refusal to yield fthy pcrtver. While the power interruption was on, Police l.t. Paul Tuetken had Patrolman Don Lovell move from the communclations desk in the police station to a police car, just outside a police department window, and handle any needed radio calls from the automobile.

NEWS BULLETIN "If you can't find it at Snyder's, you can't ibid it anywhere", has been a famous comment around the Alton trading area for many years. And, it's still true. Take, for example, TALL MAN and BIG MAN clothes. For years when no one else cared about fitting the extra-tall or the extra- big, the big guys came to the Landmark Store for work clothes, pants, jackets and shirts, finding a good selection at sensible prices. These men will be happy to know that they can now find short-sleeve summer shirts in summer fabrics to fit a 6'8" and size 20 neck. Where? Snyder's.
