In an unusual twist in the integration struggle, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People had — on principle—joined the segregationists in fighting Hie convictions. The NAACP was concerned that its own activities might be put under a disadvantage if the convictions stood up in the case of the segregationists. The Supreme Court's decision was announced in a brief, unsigned order. The order cited a decision of the parents of a son born at i some years ago in the case of 7:01 o'clock Sunday morning in !

Volume for the day was estimated at 4.5 million shares compared with 4.3 million Friday. Gains of key stocks ranged from fractions to about a point. Xerox advanced more than 3, but some of the other wide movers sucli as Polaroid, Control Data and IBM were ahead by only about a point. At 2 p.m., the Dow Jones industrial average was ahead 1.13 at TtiL .m Du Pont, a major component of the market averages, swung widely. At one time the chemical giant was off 4 but later was down around l 'yj. Key Issues posting gams of 1 or more included American Smelling, Standard Oil iNcw Jersey), Sobering and Lorillard. Tobaccos were among the strongest groups with Philip Morris ahead nearly 2, Reynolds and Lorrilard up about 1 and Liggett and Myers a n d American Tohacco up around Steels were mostly fractionally higher.

The holes lead in a straight line from one side to the big break in the wall and may have been the leaks that caused the dam to collapse, Socha said. Other possibilities mentioned included earth tremors, subsidence from oil drilling, and cracking and stretching of the whole area. Payment for damage will probably hinge on a court decision on the cause of the break. The Department of Water and Power is covered by $14.8 million in insurance, but if it is found that the dam collapsed because of an "Act of God" rather than structural failure, the insurance companies might not have to pay. Most homeowners did not have flood insurance because of the high rates. Baldwin Hills is an area of rolling hills in the western section of Los Angeles near Culver City, south of Hollywood and near MGM studios. Its residents were occupied with their usual Saturday chores, recreation and Christmas stopping when a caretaker discovered the first pencil-thin crack in the dam. Police began the house-to- house warnings to evacuate shortly before 2 p.m. At 3:38. the dam broke. Those who hadn't left the area fled for their lives. Sam L. Kaplan told newsmen that police warned him once, I then came back and said "Get out. the dam's broken." "We got In the car." Kaplan said, "and left at about 95 miles an hour.

The fast-moving waters coming down the narrow chute filled some streets to 10-foot depths tore fronts as they swept past. Debris, broken lumber, furniture, household effects and appliances were stacked in bushes and against trees. Cars, many of them occupied, were tumbled crazily along. Cai-s were crashed against trees, left upside down inside houses, stacked four-deep in alleys. Some were carried into the flood control channel and wound up doubled around bridge pilings. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of aulos were damaged. Streets were lined with scores of wrecked vehicles. The parking lot of a large department store was jammed with more than 500 caiz before the flood hit. The next day, nearly all were still there, stranded and soaked by the 4-foot wall of muddy water. One far-sighted shopper had piled his Christmas purchases on top of his car be.ore fleeing. They were still there, too, apparently untouched.

Vernon Chamber of Commerce & Industry today warned the public to be on guard against fraudulent and misleading sales and promotional schemes that flourish during the Christmas season. Each year thousands of hurried and unwary Christmas shoppers are victimized by sharp operators who step up their activities during the holiday season, said Joe Winfrey, manager of the Mt. Vernon chamber. According to the National Better Business Bureau, with which the local Chamber is affiliated through membership, these seasonal swindlers drain millions of dollars annually from consumers and business men throughout the U. S. They capitalize on the Christmas rush and the fact that people tend to be more generous, more trusting and less likely to turn down a request at that time of the year. Winfrey said holiday shoppers can protect themselves by avoiding fly-by-night operators and by making Christmas purchases frcm dealers of known reliability. Based on past experience, he said, the following schemes can be expected to make their ai>- pearance again this year: Mailorder bargain offers quot­ ing toys, watches, jewelry and other items allegedly as a fraction of the retail price. When the gift arrives it may bo a cheap imitation of the item thought to have br-cn ordered. Mail and phone appeals for donations from unknown charitable organizations. Attempts to collect on C.OD. packages supposedly for your neighbor who, the deliverer says, "is not home." The packages may contain unordered merchandise or merely paper or cotton wadding. Mailorder schemes In which you get a claim stub telling you that the shipper is holding a package which will be sent on return of the stub and a small amount. If you send the money you got a cheap pcn-nnd-pcneil set or something similar which you never ordered. Unordered merchandise appeals by unknown charitable organizations with requests for donations for the goods shipped. Personal appeals by mail from self-described needy individuals seeking clothing, food, fuel and funds. Distribution of courtesy cards for purchasing gifts at discount from fictitious prices.

He said there Is no provision to keep polls open beyond the election day or to provide additional salaries for judges who, might work more thnn one day. t Me predicted that with his staff' of 21,000 election judges It. would take at least a week to count the ballots.

Remap By Strattnn ' They were established In 1955, when the first reapportionment* in 51 years was accomplished under a constitutional amendment fathered by former Gov. William G. Stratton. The amendment required re-districting this year on the basis of the 19C0 decennial census and every tenth year thereafter. Kenier Vetoed Kemnp The 1P53 Legislature approved redisricting which Kerner vetoed as unfair. Under the constitutional amendment, he was required to appoint the com- mission. The amendment states- that if seven of its members" fail to approve a plan, an at- large election must be held. One of the chief differences- between Republican and Democratic mmbcrs was whether'> Chicago should retain ils present allotment of 23 House districts compared to 7 for the: growing suburbs. Republicans demanded a 21-9 allotment and- iwycotted some sessions. Democrats didn't get down to considering a 21-9 map Until fi->- nal hours.
