WeatherForecast Violence Flares in Savannah B.V THE ASSOCIATED PKESS Bands of Negroes battled policemen with rocks and sticks ii .Savannah, Ga., early today fol 'lowing a singing, shouting march ; by. nearly 2,000 Negroes who were i scattered by tear gas bombs. Fifty state troopers moved into the Georgia port city in the wake of a two-hour riot that left nine persons injured, including three policemen. Whatever steps may be neces- cessary to curb violence were pledged in Atlanta by Gov Ca-1 E. Sanders who planned to confer with Savannah officials. Police said demonstrators lay down on the street, blocking traffic at several intersections after the midnight march from a church to the vicinity of city and county jails. When police placed some of the Negroes in paddy wagons, others' lay down arid prevented the vehicles from moving. The Negroes then began slashing tires on the wagons, Deputy Police Chief C. W. Weber said. When those in- Side the wagons broke out, the police used tear gas bombs. The scattered Negroes roamed through the coastal city, breaking windows in cars and buildings. Numerous arrests were made before order was restored. A Baptist church, whose pastor has been an opponent of the integration demands, was extensively damaged by fire during the early morning hours. A fife department spokesman said an investigation will be made to determine if ar;son was involved. Minor violence erupted again at Cambridge, Md., three days after the withdrawal of National Guard troops. Booing white persons tossed raw eggs and exploded fire crack ers along the line of march as about 300 integrationists paraded downtown Wednesday night. State and city police prevented a direct dash between the demonstrators and the hecklers. Two vacant houses in the Negi'o section of Cambridge were burned and two Negroes reported they fired at four white persons fleeing the scene at one of the fires, state trooper was hit by a brick while patroling the section. On another front, U.S. Judge J. Robert Martin directed that Henri Monieith, 17, a Negro girl, be admitted to the white Un iversity of South Carolina. A pre rnedical student, she would be th second Negro admitted to a whit college in South Carolina. Harvej Gantt enrolled at Clemson College in January. In a separate ruling, the juris ordered integration of the state's parks, but allowed a delay of GC days. Civil rights pickets defied Nov York City police orders and laj prostrate in the paths of building equipment veWcles at a Brooklyi hospital site. Three Negroes were arrested during the protest of dls crimination in building trades.

(AP) — Sepa- ate orders ending segregation at University of South Carolina and in public parks operated by he state of South Carolina were ssued Wednesday by U.S. Dist Fudge J. Robert Martin of Greenville. Martin ordered the all-whi e iniversity to admit Negro coed •Tcnri Monteith of Columbia en oiled at the beginning of the next emester. In an accompanying order, Martin ordered the state to ad- ill Negroes to all of Its 26 state- perated parks by mid-Septem- er. State officials were undecided bout appealing the rulings. State ,Uy. Gen. Daniel R. McLeod said e would have to read Judge lartin's entire ruling before mak- ng a decision on an appeal. I Miss Monteith, 17, daughter of| Columbia school teacher, at ended the College of Notre Dame or Women in Baltimore during he 1962-63 school year. She en- ered the Baltimore school after ler application to the University of South Carolina was rejected us! summer. She would become the second Negro to attend a previously all- wliite state-supported college in South Carolina. Harvey B. Gantt of Charleston entered Clemson College in early February, also under a court order. Miss Monteith, expressing gratefulness for the court's ruling, said she had not decided if she will enter the university in September—when Ihe next full semester begins, Her mother, Mrs. R. R. Monteith, told newsmen there "are certain things to be decided, including some financial matters," before Henri enrolls. The Monteiths' liave one other child, a 20-year-old son who attends Benedict College, a Baptist school for Negroes in Columbia. Miss Monteith ranked at the top i of her class scholastic-ally when j she was graduated in 1962 from ' St. Francis De Sales High School, a private school at Powatan, Va. Judge Mai-tin's rulings in Miss Montlelh's case and the parks suit accepted both as class actions. This would prohibit any Negro from being denied admission to the parks or the university solely because of race or color. Martin's second order enjoined the State Forestry Commission from discriminating against Negroes in using state parks solely because of their race. In delaying integration of the parks for 60 days, the judge said: "The court cannot ignore the fact that long standing customs are not changed without planning, education, leadership, and foresight." Lincoln Jenkins, Columbia lawyer for the Negro plaintiffs in the suit! said he was generally satis- lied with the ruling but would have preferred that the order had called, lor immediate integration of the parks. The state now operates 26 state parks, including 39 for white use and, seven lor &e of Negroes.
