Johnson, special agent In charge of the Chicago office of I he FBI, $500 for contempt of court, The fine was Imposed Monday by Judge Richard B. Austin. Johnson had declined to answer questions put to him at a hearing on a petition filed by a reputed crime syndicate leader. The petition, filed by ,Sam (Mooiiey) Glancana, 54, of suburban Oak Park,'asked'the Court to limit the vigorous surveillance tactics the rat was employing Judge Austin ruled In favor of Gloncana, but he did agree to a government request for a 72-hour delay before entering tlie Injunc- lion against .the federal agents. At the hearings on Glancana's petition, Johnson refused to an- swci 1 questions put to him despite court Insfructions to do so. Johnson gave as his reason instructions from Attorney General Robert Kennedy. The questions were' once more put to Johnson Monday by Judge Austin and the FBI agent again refused to answer them. Tlie court then cited him for contempt. Meanwhile, Giancana, deeply tanned and wearing a pearl gray suit, leaned'back'in his chair, tapping two fingers on his bald head as the fine was imposed. Johnson made no move to pay the fine. Hd was escorted by deputy U.S. marshals to the lockup whore he signed a recognizance bond. John Lulinski, assistant U.S. attorney, advised the court he would not only appeal the ruling but also >the contempt, citation, The ruling restricts FBI agents to parking one vehicle within one block of Giancana's home and the use of .one car to follow him. It also orders FBI agents: to remain one foresome behind Giancana when he is on the golf cpurt. ••'During the hearings last week, Giancana's attorney, George N. Leighlon, said FBI cars had been cluttering up Giancana's neighborhood. The agents, he said, were taking pictures through the windows of his client's home with special cameras, and at times, everyone entering was questioned. Cook placed Demomtmtlon At Culled Oft CHICAGO (AP) - The agreement of Chicago's school bonfd president to meet with NeRfo leaders Thursday to discuss their grievances has ended a brief demonstration at the board's offices. The agreement came Monday after Claire Roddewig, school board president, talked to the leaders of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) by telephone from Washington. Roddewig said he wpuld meet With the group If Monday's resumption of demonstrations that fended last Friday were postponed. A CORE spokesman said that at Thursday's meeting his organization will outline to Roddewig the agenda It will use when it meets with school officials July 30. At this time, the spokesman said, CORE will Inform board members, the school superintendent, Benjamin C. Willis, and other staff members of its grievances. Before the agreement to meet was reached, some 70 Negro and white demonstrators carried their complaints to Mayor Richard J. Daley's offices. A letter of protest was given to the mayor by a group of five persons selected as spokesmen' for CORE. The letter concerned police treatment given to the group when it was ejected from Roddewig's office last Thursday. The letter to Daley demanded immediate revision of school ad- mitlance areas under the recently enacted Illinois law called the Armstrong Bill. Last week's sit-in demonstrations ended when Roddewig called in the police. On Friday, CORE leaders temporarily called off further demonstrations, including picketing. In Monday's action, the school board building lobby was lilled with demonstrators and police who were waiting for them.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Charles B. Shuman, president of tlie American Farm Bureau Federation, called upon Congress today to enact a wheat and feed grain bill that would eliminate production controls and provide price supports more in line with operations of a free market. In testimony prepared for a hearing before a House Wheat subcommittee, the farm leader said there Is-Heed for legislation for the 1964 wheat crop, much of which will be planted during tlie coming fall. Shuman said that since farmers rejected rigid controls on wheat for next year, producers arc confronted witli "an indefensible mixture of rules developed to implement market quotas, an allotment program without quotas and a price support level that was Intended to discourage producers from voting against quotas." Shuman said that wheat and feed grain should be considered together in legislation because they are clbsely related and both affect livestock, dairy and poultry production and prices. Shuman testified on a wheat- feed grain bill that is sponsored by a bipartisan group of 17 Senate and 19 House members. He said that tlie legislation, in addition to repealing authority for future marketing quotas and allotments, should also repeal the temporary 1963 feed grain act which applies only to the 1964 and 1965 crops. He said the legislation should establish price supports for wheat at the U.S. farm price equivalent of the average world market price during the immediately preceding three marketing years. He said that would be about $1.30 a bushel. Similarly, he said, corn and other feed grains should be supported at rates equal to 90 pel- cent of the average price received by farmers for, those grains during the immediately preceding three years. Currently, he said, this would be about $1.06 a bushel for corn. By comparison the department last week announced a. support .rate of $1.25 a bushel for corn next year. Shuman said also the legislation should authorize the Agriculture Department to enter into contracts for tlie voluntary retirement of cropland with emphasis on whole-farm retirement,, with payment. .rates set through J competitive bidding by farmers. in addition, he 'said,, the legislation should bar government sales of surplus wheat and feed grains at less than 115 per cent of the prevailing" support levels, plus reasonable carrying, charges. The farm leader said this program would cost considerable money, but>\yould .be cheaper in the long run than the administration plan because it would bring about a much quicker solution to the surplus grain problem. Cambridge Negotiators Seek Peace By JdSffiPlt.ig, MOilRAT WASHINGTON (AP) - Solemn but hopeful Negro and white negotiators working in an atmosphere of new-found optimism resume talks today aired at restoring peace to racially turbulent Cambridge, Md. After more than eight hours of deliberations In the Justice Department Monday night there was a cautious hole of hope in the brief statement of Asst. Atty. Gen. Burke Marshall that "they feel they have progress." Marshall's made considerable careful replies to questions left the Impression an agreement might be in the air—one which will satisfy some of the Negroes' demands and ease the threat of violence hanging over the Eastern Shore fishing community. The fact that negotiations were recessed until today stirred speculation that white leaders of Cambridge—not invitpd to the Washington meeting — were being with their .mother, Mrs. Leslie Stauter. The Rev. and Mrs,'Darwin Rolens and sons went,to St. Louis Sunday afternoon where they were guests of .Mrs. Rolens' parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Cehan. They were accompanied home by their daughter, Natalie, who had spent a few days in St. Louis with her grandparents. Mr. and Mrs. .Donald Carter and son left Sunday and are spending two weeks vacationing at Art Luck's Resort at Lin- creek, Mo. Sgt. and Mrs. Estel Jeffrey and family, who recently returned to the states from Turkey, arrived Sunday to spend a few days with Sgt. Jeffrey's brother and sister- in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Seorge Jeffrey. Edward Hanlon of San Diego, Calif, arrived Saturday to spend several weeks 'with his sisters, Miss Marie Hanlon and Mrs. Rosalie Cronin. SERVICE OF MARRIAGE SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio &— Instead of .a brief ceremony "to make everything legal," a marriage service should be a pronouncement \ of the church to'all present of wfiat marital life should be, says tlie Rev'^ Milton Jones. And he's taken steps to make it just that. At Immanuel Church of Shaker Heights (Evangelical and Reformed) where the Rev. Mr. Jones is minister, weddings are a full half-hour worship service, complete with printed bulletin, sermonette, scripture read- briefed on tlie terms of an agreement. , Negro and white leaders of Cambridge and Dorchester County were invited to a meeting in Baltimore Wednesday by the Maryland State Bar Association committee set up to try to mediate the racial dispute. The invitation was announced in Cambridge by the committee chairman, former Circuit Judge William J. McWilliams, after 10 of the 14 members of the committee met for more than five hours. The streets of Cambridge were peaceful as the negotiators — representing the Negroes of Cambridge, the state of Maryland and the Justice Department—met for more than an hour with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, then sat down with Marshall for the bulk of the evening. While the department would not discuss the content of the talks, a hint came from the announcement that the Negroes had taken time out to visit Robert C. Weaver, the Negro administrator of the Housing and Home Finance Agency. Equal housing has been a goal of the Cambridge Negroes, and government housing help might be part of a package acceptable to the Negroes in exchange for cooperation in holding off demonstrations. Schools and public accommodations are other friction spots. Attack On Castro In Making? By THEODORE A. EDIGER MIAMI, Fla. (AP)—New exile thrusts against Fidel Castro appeared in the making today as invasion veterans and commandos prepared to move to Central American bases. Tlie development came as the U.S. government remained adamant in its stand barring assaults from American territory. Dr. Manuel Artime was reported in Nicaragua, jumping-off place for the disastrous 19(il Cuba invasion which he led. He was reported conferring with Nicaraguan President Rene Schick and ex- President Luis Somoza, both outspoken foes of Fidel Castro. Artime, secretary general of Revolutionary Recovery Movement, one of tho largest auti- Castro groups here, said before his Miami departure, "We are leaving the United Stares to establish a base in Central America. "In mucn less than one yenr we'll be fighting inside Cuba, added the 34-yeac-old physician- revolutionavy who once fought the Fulgencio Batista regime alongside Castro.
