Core Protests Sentencing of Negro Youths CHICAGO (AP)—The Congress of Racial Equality has protested sentences imposed upon five Negro youths for aggravated battery. Twenty-five persons picketed the Cook County Criminal Courts Building Thursday, charging that the civil rights of the five were violated. Judge Irving Landesman assessed the penalties after a bench trial on charges thai the arrested Vegroes were involved in the March 25 beating of Alex Roberson, 19, also a Negro, near his South Side home. Robert Heard, a spokesman for Ihe pickels, said the demonstrators felt the civil rights of the five had been violated. He maintained lhat the youths were inno- cenl, as Ihey contended. Heard has been charged with aggravaled ballery and carrying a conceaed weapon al a demonstration at Chicago school board offices, where four policemen were hurt. He is free on $500 bond. Police said a pocket knife was found in Hoard's shoe. He said he LONDON (AP) — Dr. Stephen Ward failed lo respond lo treatment for an overdose of drugs nnd bronchial pneumonia' and drifted closer to death today. A spokesman for St. Stephen's Hospital said Ward's physician "has expressed increasing concern for his patient." The society osteopath has been in a coma since he took an overdose of drugs Wednesday shortly before he was convicted of living off the earnings of prostitulcs. A medical bulletin from St. Stephen's Hospital said Ward had shown no Improvement in the past 12 hours. He was still scious. Julie Gulliver, 23, a red-haired singer who was Ward's dally companion during his trial, told newsmen: "There's a whole crowd of peo pie right now praying for Stephen to die so thai their names won't be menlioned. "If he dies I'm going to make sure lhat they are." Ward, 50, society osteopath and artist, has been in a coma since Wednesday when lie look a massive overdose of drugs a few hours before an Old Bailey jury found him guilly of living off the prostitution of Christine Heeler, 21, and Marilyn (Mandy) Rice-Davies, 18. Ward developed bronchial pneumonia Thursday afternoon. At one point his breathing stopped nnd he was clinically dead. A breathing machine, applied to an incision in his throat, pumped air into his lungs. A spokesman for SI. Stephen's Hospital said Ward's heart probably slopped also. William Maync Bulcher, secretary of the hospital management committee, said: "Ward is desperately ill—just about half alive. I don't know how long anyone can live under these conditions." Ward was still unaware that he had been found guilty nnd faced up lo 14 years in prison. His private room was bright with flowers sent in by many ol his girl friends. Only Miss Gulliver had applied lo see him. She was turned away in tears as an official said, "Only relatives—no girls." Ward told friends he believed he was being made the scape- ;oat for the Profumo scandal, which set off charges of immorality in, high political and social circles and nearly forced Prime Minister Harold Macmillan lo resign. Ward had Introduced Christine Keeler to War Minister John D. Profumo, who resigned June 4 after admitting he lied to the House of Commons in an attempl to cover up his affair wilh Ihe call girl. Macmillan, 69, told a television interviewer Thursday night the Profumo scandal had wounded and bruised him. "This is something which has never occurred in my life before —a world unrevealed and quite foreign to me, and very unpleas ant," said the prime minister. Macmillan added, however, he has no idea of quitting Ihe lead- dership of Ihe Conservalive parly and "will do whatever I Ihink is mosl likely for Ihe party to win the next election." Carpentier is Expected to Announce Candidacy Sunday By CHAHIJCS WIIALEN SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) - At an age when most men have retired, Secretary of Stale Charles F. Carpenlier is about lo seek Ihe biggesl prize of his 39-year career in politics. Carpentier, a blunt talker with a penchant for controversy, is expected to announce at a rally in East Moline Sunday his bid to capture the Republican nomination for governor in the 1964 primary. So far, three other candidates are in the contest. They are Charles H. Percy, 43, of Kenil- worlh; Hayes Roberlson, 58, of Flossmoor, and Lar (America First) Daly, 51, of Chicago. No one knows belter than Carpentier, who will be 67 in September, that it will be a fight. But the stocky, 5-foot-7, gray- haired veteran has made a habit of thriving on the rough-and- tumble batting of Illinois politics. used it to cut out newspaper clippings. The pickets carried signs reading "End Police Brutality" and "Stop Railroading Our Youth." Judge Irving Landesman said the defense did not charge police brutality and said that to his knowledge no CORE members had heard any testimony in the case. One youth admitted the beating and pleaded guilty, but the other four denied the charges. Coal Miner Killed In Pawnee Cave-In PAWNEE, 111. (AP)—A cave-in at Peabody Coal Mine No. 10 near Pawnee killed Lee Johnson, 53, of Taylorville Thursday. Coroner Thomas Doyle of Christian County said Johnson was killed when the top fell in while he was working near the face. The body was recovered. What ranks as perhaps his greatest triumph came in 1960, when he was the only Republican to survive an otherwise Democratic sweep of state offices. He won by 384,916 votes. Carpentier began his life in politics as an angry young man and he still is known as the "Battling Belgian." In 1924, when East Moline officials allowed a carnival to set up outside his movie theater, Carpentier thought the city council was wrong and decided to do something about it. He ran for alderman and was elected, to begin a public career that also has embraced 10 years as mayor and 14 in the Illinois Senate. He became secretary of state in 1953. Carpentier's three terms as secretary of state, an. office second only lo Ihe governorship in patronage jobs, have advanced him to leadership in the Republican Party. In that role, he has gained his share of victories but also has accumulated political scars. Bluntness in dealing with personalities and issues has been a Carpentier trademark, and he has acknowledged that his gruff manner at times has offended party colleagues. i In 1962, Carpentier's push to nominate Walter- Reum of Oak Park in the GOP primary for state treasurer brought a split with other party leaders who were supporting William J. Scott, the successful candidate. "I may have been somewhat blunter in my public statements than is g e n e r a 1 ly considered politically expedient," he said during that campaign. "And if there are those who have felt offended by them, I can St. Ambrose College, Davenport, Iowa. Carpentier and his "wife, Alta have Iwo adopled children — Mrs. Edward J. Piper and a son Donald, 33, who is a state sena tor. . only offer apologies for my bluntness but nol for any of Ihe positions I have taken." Elected in 1952 Carpentier was first elected secretary in 1952. He toppled Democrat Edward J. Barrett, a strong vote-getter, by a 9,303 plurality. Four years later, he was re- elecled by 600,277 votes for the second largest plurality for a state candidate in Illinois history. One of the most significant accomplishments credited to Carpentier was enactment of the strict Illinois driver's license law in 1953. Since then, thousands of errant motorists have been penalized under Carpentier's rigid enforcement of the law. A Roman Catholic, Carpentier is the son of immigranls from Belgium. He was educated in St. Mary's School in Moline and at After his son's Senate victory in 1962, Carpentier said it was "the most important one to me." Employes of Union Electric OK Contract ST. LOUIS (AP)—About 1,200 employes of the Union Electric Co. plants in Missouri, Illinois and Iowa have approved a new two-year contraci. Leo Bachinski, business manager of Local 148 of the Operating Engineers Union, said the contract provides for an increase of about eight per cent in wages and fringe benefits. Wages under the old contraci ranged from $2.55 an hour to $5.02. The new agreement is retroactive to July 1. Union members at company plants in Greater St. Louis; Keokuk, Iowa; Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., and Cahokia and Venice 111., began balloting on the proposal Monday. The final vote was not available. 8 Highballs Daily Can In jure Liver CHICAGO (AP)—A person who irinks eight highballs daily dur- ng a prolonged cocktail hour nay be flirting wilh liver disease even though he maintains a well- mlancod diet at the same time. Dr. Charles S. Lieber, a Boston Elsah road, nodical consultant, said recent studies show a person with a high iquor inlako can develop a fatty iver in a relatively short period of time. He said fatty liver can be produced in two lo six weeks in well- fed experimental rats who aJso are given relatively large amounts of alcohol. A California physician asked the current American Medical Association whether a 48-year-old executive who consumes eight highballs daily might be flirting with liver disease even though he maintains a well balanced diet. Answering in the AMA Journal, Dr. Lieber wrote: "One may assume that the in Kestion of eight highballs a day probably corresponds to the in take of 11 to 12 ounces of 86 proof whisky per day. Recent studies have indicated that such an intake can lead to the development of fatty liver in man despite maintenance of adequate dietary intake... "Whether or not more prolonged intake of these amounts of alcohol can lead to the development in humans of hepatic cirrhosis (a grave liver disease) despite maintenance of an adequate diet has not been determined with controlled studies."
