Further Revolt In Prospect For the Congo LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (AP)—The revolt that ousted the Congo Republic's President Fulbert Youlou is far from ended, African diplomats in Leopoldville predicted today. They said the tactics of Congo Brazzaville labor leaders are likely to be a blueprint lor union-led mass uprisings in other African countries. Workers' grievances in Brazzaville — widespread unemployment, corruption in high places, lavish living by politicians and dictatorial acts in personal interest — can be duplicaed in almost, all newly. independent nations in Africa, the diplomats said. The first official acts by Leopoldville authorities seemed to reinforce this opinion. Ferry services to Brazzaville across the river Congo, were suspended and well-informed sources said the Leopoldville government took this step to quarantine the city from Brazzaville political agitators who of the foHhcoming giant civil rights rally in Ihe nation's enpi- lal is a one-time member of a Communist organization, a wnr- time conscientious objector, and served a jail term on a morals conviction. That's the record Senate au- IhoHUos have turned over lo Washington police on Bayard Rustin, deputy director of the massive Aug. 28 demonstration, This record, based on FBI and police reports, is as follows: As a student at the College of the City of New York in 1936, Rustln joined the Young Communist League and was active in its operations on the campus and elsewhere. In World War II, he was arrested several limes for making speeches advocating resistance lo the conflict against Hitler and Mussolini. As a professed conscientious objector, lie served 26 months in the federal prisons at Ashland, Ky., and Lewisburg, Pa. Wilh two olher men, Rustin was convicted in 1953 in Pasadena, Calif., on a morals charge, and served 60 days. While Ruslin has no college degree, he spenl seven years sludy- ing at Wilberforce, 0., and Cheyney, Pa., colleges, Ihe College of {he City of New York, and the London School of Economics. A. Philip Randolph, president of the Sleeping Car Porters and chairman of the huge march on Washington, personally designated RUslin as deputy. Asked if in view of the Senate report to Washington police on Ruslin's Communist and prison record he would be asked to give up this key post, Randolph emphatically replied, "Of course not. He's 'Mr. March' himself. We couldn't do without him. His outstanding ability and experience are invaluable." CHICAGO (API—The director of Ihe Adlor Planetarium says there are several explanations, including Ihe position of the planet Jupiter, for the slrangc lights soon lately In Illinois. In ninny instances where "mystery lights" were sighted in the sky, II is merely a case of people being overaware of objects because of a rash of such sightings in the area, Robert I. Johnson of Ihe planetarium said Friday, Jupiter al Ihis lime of year rises curly in Ihe evening as a reddish area of light. When seen through atmosphere and haze of differing densities, it appears to flicker. It then changes lo a yellow bright point of light. To the untrained eye, Johnson said, it may appear to be moving rapidly. Sources This column put Ihe question direct lo Ruslin if he proposed continuing his conneclion wilh Ihe demonstration. "I certainly do," he said. "I've been meeting with high Justice Department officials on our plans, and I will have other conferences with them as we progress." "Who are these officials?" "One of them is Assistant Attorney General Burke Marshall (head of the Civil Rights Division)," said Ruslin. Unexpected Plain Talk two great-grand- Brice Felten 0. R.

Mrs. Williams Rites Sunday at Jersey JERSEYVILLE — Funeral services for Mrs, Myrtle Williams, widow of Ihe late Earl Williams, will he conducted Sunday from the Gubser Funera Home. Senator Abraham Ribicoff, D- Conn., former head of the Department of Health, Education & Welfare, favors the administration's civil rights bill, but that's not keeping him from doing some blunt talking — particularly about the need for law observance by advocates of the legislation. It is Ribicoff's forthright contention that such responsibility comes before enactment of the Meteors, clouds, high flying aircraft, advertising planes and jet exhaust are all possible causes of he lights, he said. Atmospheric effects causing stars and planets lo appear as if Ihey were moving or changing color he considers olher possibilities. Out 1 common problem wilh sky- walchers, Johnson said, is they oflon use clouds as stationary references and this causes other object lo appear to be moving or changing color. Olher explanalions for Ihe lights came from Air Force officers, an airport manager and an advertising plane pilot Three Air Force officers said an Aug. 7 sighting of a kite- shaped objecl with a tail was a jet bomber-lanker refueling oper- alion. Earl Oulland, manager of Ihe Mount Vernon airport in Jefferson County, said a possible cause of the lights could be aulo head- lighls reflecling off rain puddles, Ihen off low clouds. Strange Trail A Norlhbrook advertising plane pilot explained lhat when a person on the ground isn't in position to read Ihe message from a nighl-flying advertising plane, he may see instead a strange trail of light. The pilot, Robert Burmeister, 55, said the sign on his plane is quite large—45 feet long, 8 feet wide and has 350 lights. He said several women reported seeing "something bright, moving very fast" at aboul the time his plane took off from Pal- waukee airport, northwest of Chicago. The women said they saw Racing lo Windup State Fair SPRINGFIELD, III.

Otto Kernel- welcomed about 500 elderly persons to Hie Illinois building. He left with them a 196-pound cake which had been presented to him Thursday on his 55th birthday by a Coles County Democratic or- gani/ation.' Kerner later was adopted into the six-nation froquois Indian Confederacy in ceremonies in the Indian Village show at the fair. "This is a rare distinction," said Joseph (One Tail) White. "We adopted Gov. Kerner because we feel that as the leader of the people of Illinois he can do good for our cause here." He said that Kerner will be known in Indian circles as "Awe Nagues" (Sometimes an Eagle). The eagle is the symbol of the supreme ruler to Indiana, and Kerner, as leader of Illinois, was likened to an eagle who rules the skies, White added.

"I firmly Ribicott, "that those who urge the need for law have a responsibility to insist that law be observed. Many who decry discrimination have practiced or condoned it. Many who point a condemning finger at the South are unaware, for example, that in no Northern city can be found the extent and quality of private residential housing for Negroes that exists in Atlanta, Ga. 'Many who are quick to condemn discrimination 1,500 miles away have never looked at what is happening six' blocks from I heir own homes. Denying a man a job because lie is a Negro is indefensible. Granting a man a job if he is not qualified just-because he is a Negro cannot be justified either. "Those who claim that X number- of jobs of Y per cent of jobs must be set aside for Negroes are not favoring equality of opportunity. They are saying that opportunity does not matter, that merit does not matter, that only arbitrary numbers and percentages matter. This point of view will undermine the whole effort to achieve equality in this country. "Discrimination is wrong whether it works against a man or for him. Unless the lest is ability, someone will always be the victim of discrimination." Civil Rights Flnshc.8 Latest backstage nose count of the Senate, made expressly for the President, showed a maximum of 54 votes for ills civil rights' bill, with a greatly watered clown version of the public accomodations provision. While this is a meager majority of the Senate, it is 13 short of the vole required to bring the measure to a ballot. That means the President has a long and hard battle ahead of him getting Senate action on Ibis legislation. A, Philip Randolph, director of the mass march on Washington, is telling other leaders he "confidently expects" that President Kennedy will address the vast rally at the Lincoln Memorial. Also that .Vice President Lyndon Johnson, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, Speaker John McCormick and other notables will attend and speak. ........

Social >Vhlrl Polish Ambassador Drozniak no green or red navigation lights and did not hear an engine. Burmeister said he always turns off his lights "because they detract from the message." He flies at only 60 to 70 miles an hour and this "does not create a lot of noise." A 17-year-old boy drove 120 miles an hour to "escape a light as big as an automobile about 1,000 feet off the ground." The Air Force said it was probably the moon distorted by fog. Chicagoaii Begins Skating lo Capitol CHICAGO (AP) — Ledger Smith, 27, looking like a picket on wheels, started roller skating early today for Washington with the observation, "I've got a lot of skating to do." Smith, a Negro, hopes to stroke off the 685 miles to the capital by Aug. 27, and to join the civil rights march there Aug. 28. He carried, suspended from a neckstrap, a placard telling his mission. Smith was followed as he rolled south on Michigan Avenue by an automobile carrying friends of the Nalional Association for the Advancement of Colored People — and spare skates.

Starting at G p.m., and featuring two long tables piled high with Polish delicacies, and four bars, the affair went on for hours. As such elaborate shindigs are infrequent these torrid days of summer, Dro/niak's open-handed hospitality was heartily enjoyed. A ton of California grapes and 500 Ibs. of roasted buffalo from South Dakota were consumed at the third annual buffet dance of the Junior Foreign Service Officers Club for young members of the foreign diplomatic corps. By the time the feasting was over, the 40-ft-long buffet table had been swept clean, Nothing was left except crumbs and empty platters, Mrs. George Anderson, wife of the former Chief of Naval Operations who is leaving to become Ambassador to Portugal, says she learned one thing during her stay in Washington: It is to sit on a high perch at receptions. Says Mrs. Anderson, "It may be unorthodox, but it's very comfor- iable, especially for taking the strain off an injured knee." Mrs. Corrado CVccacci, wife of the new Italian Air Attache, was introduced at her first diplomatic party in an unusual manner — as a doctor of philosophy and a poet. She explained she got her Ph. P. at the University of Rome before sher married more than 20 years ago, and taught Latin, German and ancient Greek in high schools. (mat. 1863, by the Hall Synd. Inc.)
