Garden for Blind Is Trampled CHICAGO (AP) - A pleasure spot for Chicago's blind has been stamped out by the feet of vandals. Flower lovers several years ago planted a one-and-one-half acre garden next to the Chicago Lighthouse lor the Blind, a school for the blind. A favorite area,was the herb garden, pungent in the spring air. Braille markers told the blind the flower behind each fragrance. Thursday the sensitive hands of the blind discovered only crumpled blossoms and broken stems. Vandals had scaled a high fence and trampled most of the garden, including annuals planted the day before. "We have had instances of vandalism through the years but this is the worst," Mrs. George L. Brownlee, a member of the group that opened the garden said. "I can't understand why any one would wish to destroy such beauty." Housing Bill Backers Push For Passage CHICAGO (API — A group formed to marshal religious forces in racial matters has urged civic and political Aiders to try to save a fair housing bill facing defeat in the Illinois House. Telegrams were sent to the leaders Thursday by the Chicago Conference on Religion and Race in an attempt to save the measure. The confeence is headed by James B. Parsons, a U.S. Dis- tict Court judge. "The defeat of this legislation," (he telegrams said, "will cause much frustration and further aggravate the racial crisis which faces Chicago and all big cities." The open occupancy bill's chances of passage dimmed Tuesday when a canvass of lawmak- • ers showed it lacked 22 of the 89 House votes required for passage. The telegrams were sent to Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago; Secretary of State Charles Carpenlier; Republican leaders Hayes Robertson and Charles Percy, and Edward Logelin, president of the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry. The conference was formed in Chicago in January. It is one of several such groups in the nation. Inherited Wind Blows Teacher Out of Her .Job ROCKFORD. 111.
