The 30-minute argument ended when Everage held a limb over his wife's head and threatened to kill her. She stabbed him once in the chest. The long blade of the "bone-handled" pocket knife pierced his heart and he staggered along the road while his wife returned to their home at 1609 Piasa St. and told relatives. Police were summoned and the woman was moved to St. Joseph's Hospital in Alton where she was admitted for treatment of bruises, abrasions and shock. Deputy Coroner Thomas Burke of Alton pronounced the man dead at the scene where he was found lying along the dirt road in a secluded area, about a mile-and-a- half east of Boy Scout Camp Warren Levis. Sheriff's investigator Bowman said an argument apparently started when the couple left a friend's home about 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Everage stopped for gas at a Belle Street service station and drove to the road in- wooded area of Godfrey township. Mrs. Everage told police at the hospital her husband parked the car and started beating and kicking her. She struggled free, ran along the road, and fell into a deep "washout" where he threatened her with a rock. The woman struggled free again and ran to the car where she entered the back seat. She said her husband removed his shirt and wrist watch and "picked up a limb." In her statement to police, the young woman said she took hei msband's knife from a purse in the front seat and got out of the car. When Everage held the limb above her head she stabbed him once in the chest, sheriff's investigators said. The victim's body was moved to the Russell Funeral Home where arragements are incom plete. An inquest is pending, Deputy Coroner Burke said. '' '"'I* Capital and Surplus $2,250.000-00 • AITWJV, DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION FEOgRAi- RESERVE SYSTEM TAKE ADVANTAGE OF .

WASHINGTON (API—President Kennedy's housing chief said today he believes the presidential bail oh racial bias in federally aid ed housing Inevitably will be extended to other housing. Dr. Robert C. Weaver made the prediction in an interview) even though he conceded that "you cannot change attitudes by law" or executive orders. He also agreed that many Negroes will continue to prefer living in Negro neighborhoods lit "voluntary segregation" even if racial barriers arc dismantled in white neighborhoods and suburbs. But Weaver held that the hostility of while householders to Negro neighbors lias been exagger ated, that behavior can be changed by law even if attitudes can't be, and that "the American people do adjust to new circumstances." As administrator of the Housing and Home Finance Agency—the highest executive post ever held by a Negro—Weaver rejected other frequent criticisms of the order, including charges that it will depress homebuilding and hasn't noticeably helped Negroes, yet is speeding the flight of whites to (he suburbs. The partial question-and-an swer text: Attitude Q: Dr. Weaver, a recent book titled "But Not Next Door" pictures an attitude expressed in the quotation, "We don't want to deny Negroes the right to decent homes, just as good as ours—but not next door." Is this a common attitude? A: I think it is fairly common. I think it is over-exaggerated. _Jke most attitudes, it is not at-, ways directly connected with be- liavior. Q: Since such an attitude does sxist, do you believe that any law or executive order can bring about open occupancy? A: I certainly think that.a law and an executive order can ac- :elerate the accomplishment of an open occupancy situation. We have had the same story all along, iuch as when we passed laws for equal employment opportunity. You can't change attitudes by law, but we are talking about be- navior patterns, and laws can effect changes in behavior. Laws are sometimes educational materials. Q: Are any significant changes visible since President Kennedy's executive order prohibiting bias in- government-aided housing? The order, issued last November, forbids racial discrimination in public housing and dwellings fi nanced with Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance or Veterans Administration loans or guarantees. A: Yes and No. As lar as definitive results are concerned, it is too early to make conclusions. As far as the prophecies of woe and disaster are concerned—to the effect that this would dry up the building industry and, as one spokesman for the building industry said, cut down housing starts by 34 per cent—actually we had in May the highest volume since 1950. Results Q: Do you consider the results of the order satisfactory, in view of the fact that Negroes seem to be making slower progress against a point slipped to about a half. American Stock Exchange prices were mixed. U.S. government and corporate bond prices were narrowly mixed. housing bias than against mos other discriminations? A: If you mean do I consldei the results of the order sallsfac lory, these are about as we expect ed. If you mean the over-all re suits of getting equality In housing opportunity. 1 am not satisfied. Qi Is that because of lack o compliance or cooperation: A: We have found very littlo noncompliance. We are getting a degree of cooperation, nit full, bu comparable to the cooperation yoi usually get when you change tht rules of the game. Q: Are you suggesting that the presidential order should be ex tended to cover conventionally fi nanced housing? A: The position I have always taken is that the widest possible, coverage is desirable. I have al ways advocated extending it further than It is now. Q: Will it be extended? •A: Only the President can an swer that. I think it is Inevitable, but as to when, I couldn't offei. a suggestion. Q: There has been-talk of in born hostility in the suburbs tha can be exploited for political put- poses in developing'a white man'? party that would attract'Votes in the big Eastern cities and ,in the Midwest. Do Vou think there is any such attitude? . . A: I think there is always a residue of hate and know-nothing ness in any society-and I am sure that is this possibility. I don' think it is a very live probability I think the dichotomy between the suburbs and the central cities, as far as political, economic and social interests are concerned, has been one that has been exploited by the very fact that one of the sales pitches of the suburbs has been exclusiveness ... Trend That is a divisive trend. Bui there is also a trend toward greater cooperation between city anc suburb in such problems as mass transit, planning and open space. Q: The administration has beei considering abroadening of the order for a long time, but has no acted. Isn't that because there are doubts as to the legality of such an extension? A: Here again I can't speak, because I don't make the decisions . . . there are some legal problems . . ., but I don't think there, are any which cannot be surmounted Q: Does your experience in the housing agency bear out a com mon belief that Negro dwellings are allowed to deteriorate? A: I believe that Negroes arc like other people. Some take' car of their property. Others do not I don't think you can generalize Unfortunately, because the grea bulk of Negroes are low-income and many are new to cities, it is easy to identify them with th<_ blight they inherited and to judg' all by the lowest common denom inator. Q: Oscar Handlin, historian anc sociologist, said the other day tha even if there were complete open occupancy, there would still be Ne groes who wanted to live with Negroes. There would be Negro com munities, just as there are Jew ish, Polish and other ethnic sec tions. Do you believe this is so 9 A: I think he is 100 per cen right. Segregation is of two types There is voluntary segregation and enforced segregation. Voluntary segregation in a democracy anybody's privilege. Enforced seg regation is a dangerous thing in a democracy and a very, very costly thing to those who are sub jected to it.
