Racial Disturbances Continue in Chicago By JOHN GUY CHICAGO (AP)—Racial disturb ances in a South Side district con tinued for the fourth consecutive night Thursday night as residents in a previously all-white neighborhood shouted protests over the presence of thre~ Negro families. Police said 41 persons, including 20 juveniles, were arrested as demonstrators refused to obey police orders to disperse. At least two persons, hit by stones, were injured. Poice sought for neary three hours — until after midnight — to break up the demonstrations which centered in Morgan street between 56th and 57th streets. Police have arrested more than 100 persons since the first outbreak on Monday night. Several were juveniles. Thursday night a crowd of about 100, mostly teenagers, moved toward the apartment where two of the Negro families moved this week. Police immediately blocked off the street. Two police cars containing dogs pulled up at a nearby corner. Stones crashed through squad car windshields and two demonstrators, one with blood over his face, were pushed into a police wagon. Patrolmen dispersed the crowd. Soon several squad cars raced to the all-Negro neighborhood two blocks south where several cars were seen with windshields broken by bricks and stones. Traffic lights were turned off as police halted travel. As police sought to quell the racial row in the area—the Englewood district—a public meeting of residents was held in the Engle wood .Police Station. Ii was adjourned after several white resi dents . said they feared Negroes were trying to take over theii community. A biracial committee held a closed meeting at the sta tion in an attempt lo reach a solution to the problem. All porches within two blocks of the Negro families were crowded. One girl told a reporter, "We don't want to integrate." A woman, about 50, said she would use violence, if necessary, to remove Negro families. Another said, "I'm all for civil •ights, but I don' f want lo live next .0 'em." The first Negro family moved nlo an apartment in the area Monday. A second family moved nto another building Tuesday and third moved into the first apartment building Wednesday. One of the Negro couples pledged to remain "as long as we lave police protection outside." Reginald Williams, 25, his wife, Alice, 23, and their son, Gregory, 7, moved in Monday. "We moved here from a flat because the rent was about $25 a month less," Williams said. "We didn't expect any trouble." He said they have no affiliation with any civil rights organizations. Youth Escapes Injury In Biks-Auto Crash WOOD RIVER — Lonny Gene Shewcraft, 14, son of Mr. and Mrs. William P. Shewcraft, 111 S. Vinth, was apparently uninjured Thursday when the bike he was riding collided with a car on Sixth Street between the H. and H. Tavern and a shoe store. A police report of the incident showed that Robert Flatt, G07 Lampert St., Alton, had his car stopped facing west in the alley way between the two buildings when the Shewcraft boy, riding south on the sidewalk, collided with the right side of Flatt's vehicle. The boy did not require medi cal attention. IzvestiaRaps Newsman and Professor MOSCOW (AP) — Izvestia has accused a United Press International correspondent and an American professor of trying to lure a Soviet citizen into U.S. intelligence. The government newspaper charged that Don Larrimore, a Russian-speaking American newsman, sought out a young Russian identified only as Felix S. during a tourist visit to Moscow in 1956 and 1957. Later, it continued, an American professor of Slavic languages from Minneapolis, Minn., who used the names Irving Shaw or Joseph Shaw, visited Felix and suggested he provide secret information for Western intelligence. i'he paper said Larrimore was a "collaborator of the intelligence of the U.S.A." who "snares prey which others later take in hand." United Press International in New York said Larrimore denied ever having been in CIA employ. Wood River Man Fined on 3 Charges WOOD RIVER — Ray D. Overton, 24, 7 Old St. Louis Rd., was fined $70 and costs this morning after pleading guilty to charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol, careless driving and having defective mufflers on his car.

Vernor fined him $50 and costs and $10 and costs on each of the other charges. Paper Drive WOOD RIVER — Cub Pack 44 Parades WOOD RIVER — Buckets of paste, stacks of newspaper, and a make-shift pasting table, crowd the driveway at the Harold Buck home, 1226 Hawthorne Ave., where a huge floa'. is being created in the garage as a project of the High School Youth Group of the First Church of Christ, Christian. Depicting "Jonah and t h e whale," the papier macho model of a whale measures IB leet in length, is seven feet wide and five feet high, constructed with a tail which will flop from side to side and huge protruding eyes which will roll while the float is in motion. Jonah will bo seen from either side of the float through "cutaway" sections. Planned for Parade The float is being sponsored through the Christian Youth hour of the church with a two-fold purpost: it will be entered in the Aug. 22 parade to compete with some 100 other entries representing youth groups of churches throughout the midwestern state at Lincoln; and is providing a new and interesting summer recreation program for the 35 members of the Youth group. Work on the project started July 15 with boys assisting Harold Huck who supervised the construction of the wood frame work. Under the leadership of Stuart !ouve, assistant minister and youth director, chicken mesh wire fencing was stretched over the frame and molded into the shape of the whale. Committees of young people have worked each weekday evening with the exception of Wednesday's, throughout the early evening hours, applying layer after layer of paper mache to make an attractive and firm float which they hope will weather the trip to the Christian Youth Rally fes- ivities in Lincoln. The Finishing Work Next week the final coat of paper, a layer of jet black, vvil be applied and then comes the art ,vork of "doing" the creature up with a shiny finishing coat of paint shading from black high on his back to pale gray on his belly, Miss Jan Rich, general chairman, stated. The monster will be taken to incoln aboard a truck and transferred to a hay wagon for the parade from Lincoln Christian Col- ege through downtown Lincoln for judging in the city square. Prizes will be awarded in five categories. "If mother nature is kind to us and the creature isn't ruined by the elements, we will return him to Wood River and enter him in the area Halloween parades this fall," Couve stated.

(Westerner Club Rail Road) and a sizeable red tail light with the Says Americans Involved in Buddhist Crisis By MALCOLM W. BROWNE SAIGON (AP) — South Viet Nam's vice president voiced suspicion today that Americans are involved in the Buddhist anti-government campaign and said he has asked U.S. Ambassador Frederick E. Nolting Jr. to investigate. Vice President Nguyen Ngoc Tho was asked at a news conference whether the Saigon government had any direct evidence of foreign intervention in Budd- list problems. "Actually, I shouldn't say," Tho said, "but there have been rumors of such things. I have asked Ambassador Nolting to ver- fy if the rumors are justified." Nolting said he could not comment on the remark until he had seen an official transcript of the conference. High Vietnamese government officials have frequently charged that Americans were interfering in domestic affairs, including plots against the government. The United States has repeatedly denied it. Tho noted that the government has offered to set up a commission of Buddhist leaders and government officials for on-the-spot investigation of complaints. Buddhist leaders earlier this Parks Ordered Desegregated In New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (AP)—The city of New Orleans, under federal court order, must desegregate all its public recreational and cultural facilities, including 119 city- supervised playgrounds. A special three-judge panel handed down the decision .Thursday in a suit by 116 Negroes demanding that the New Orleans Recreation Department p 1 a y;rounds and creation centers admit both races. There were 100 playgrounds for white, 19 for Negroes. The judges said private groups may continue to use the public facilities if such use is not a veiled attempt by the state of city to maintain segregation. This apparently cleared the way for use of parks and playgrounds by private athletic" teams. Tense Nerves Block Bowels Your colon has nerves that control regularky.
