4A RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sunday, July 11, 1965 Officials in Bogalusa Ordered Not to Interfere with Marchers BOGALUSA, La. — (/P) — James Farmer, national director of the Congress of Racial Equality said Saturday he would issue a call for more CORE workers in other states to come here to help in the civil rights struggle. "This does not mean they will come in thousands," Farmer said, "maybe nearer in hundreds." NEW ORLEANS — (^)—A federal district judge halted Bogalusa, La., officials Saturday from interfering with civil rights forces spearheading demonstrations in that city. U.S. Dist. Judge Herbert W. Christenberry of New Orleans issued a preliminary injunction which blocked city and parish officials from interfering with the constitutional rights of Negroes while staging civil rights activities. Earlier Decision Earlier the same court had denied Bogalusa officials an injunction against civil rights forces. But Christenberry added that under previous court rulings, the city has tlie power to delay, postpone or Arraign Woman, 20, in Case Against- Chief of Minutemen KANSAS CITY, Mo., — m —A 20-year-old woman was arraigned Saturday as a ma- trial witness in the kidnap­ ing case against Robert B. DePugh, chief of the underground Minutemen. Mrs. Cyndra Ellen Melville, described by DePugh as his confidential secretary for three years, was freed on a $3,000 bond. Continuing Probe She was the second DePugh employe put under bond as a material witness in the con tinuing investigation of Minutemen operations. Jack Can non, 35, an employe of DePugh's Independence, Mo., office was released on a $5,000 bond Friday as a material witness shortly after DePugh surrendered on the kidnaping charge. DePugh also was released under $5,000 bond and all three were ordered to appear for preliminary hearing July 20. It was at the Independence building where officers found and confiscated a large cache of explosives, explosive compounds, guns, hand grenades and a bazooka. Lawrence Gepford, county prosecutor, filed the kidnap­ ing charge after two young' women, Patricia Lucille Beal, 21, and Linda Frances Judd, 16, had signed statements saying DePugh had abducted them and sought to have them seduce men in high government posts. They said DePugh took them from Independnce to Richmond, Mo., on June 4 and held them captive for two weeks. DePugh, wliose home and veterinary supply business are at Norborne, Mo., has headed the Minutemen since the anti- Communist underground order was founded about five years ago. He claims there are 25,000 Minutemen. Grand Jury Gepford said he would place the whole DePugh-Minutemen investigation before a grand jury Monday. Both DePugh and Mrs. Melville have denied the kidnap­ ing story told by Miss Beal and Miss Judd. DePugh said the whole story was a plot "to discredit the Minutemen." Mrs. Melville said Miss Beal and Miss Judd probably were two women she knew under different names and who had worked for the Minutemen organization. "They did work for us but they weren't kidnaped," said Mrs, Melville. She would not elaborate. halt marches if the safety of the marchers or others is involved. Immediately after the two court orders were issued, a spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, in Bogalusa, Mike Jones, said there would be another march Saturday. Jones said the marchers would go to city hall to press grievances which CORE claims includes police brutality and discriminatory employment practices. Opposes Trek The president of the Bogalusa Civic and Voters League, A. Z. Young, later called on the Bogalusa Negroes not to march. He said that if they marched, they would violate city ordinances. It was not known if the march took place. Following the announcement by Young of the march's cancellation. Young left the meeting hall with James Fanner, national director of CORE. They were driven away by a member of the Deacons of Defense and Justice. On the seat beside the driver was a small-caliber pistol. The Deacons of Defense are an armed group of Negroes who stand guard over the Negro section of Bogalusa at night. Ball Arrives for NATO Talks PARIS —(/P)— U.S. Undersecretary of State George Ball arrived in Paris Saturday to attend a session of the North Atlantic alliance's permanent council Tuesday. Also scheduled to attend are foreign ministers Paul- Henri Spaak of Belgium, Amintore Fanfani of Italy, Paul Martin of Canada and Joseph Luns of the Netherlands.

Believe Explosives Found on Train Destined for Area De Gaulle to Visit Scientist Claims Space Project Suppressed for Political Reasons NEW YORK — (^) — A leading scientist said Saturday that last January 's canceling of a project to develop a space vehicle powered by nuclear bombs was ". . . the first time in modem history that a major expansion of human technology has been suppressed for political reasons. Dr. Freeman J, Dyson, professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, N.J., said what he termed the "murder" of Project Orion, as the experirnent was known, was directly caused by four groups: Blames 4 Groups "The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Defense Department, the promoters of the nuciear test ban treaty, and the scientific community as a whole." Writing in the current issue of "Science," a weekly journal published by the American Assn. for the Ad vancement of Science, Dyson says that although ". . . the men who killed Orion acted from high and responsible motives, . . . their motives were strangely irrelevant to the real issues at stake . , ." Under study for seven years, the project was canceled in January after NASA officials declined to give it great suport. Orion was intended to develop a vehicle that would be propelled, once in space, by throwing nuclear bombs overboard and exploding them to give the ship a kick in the right direction, much like a football. Supporters argued that long-range missions could achieve higher speeds under such a system than with chemical fuels. The idea was first proposed in 1955 by scientists working at Los Alamos, New Mexico. The first serious work was begun by physicists and engineers in the general atomic division of the General Dynamics Corp., San Diego. 1st U .S. Sponsor Its first government sponsor was the Advanved Research Projects Agency of the Defense Department. Dyson argues that when ARPA projects were split up among other agencies with the founding of NASA, nobody wanted Orion. The Air Force eventually took control, Dyson said, but had trouble demonstrating that the project had a military purpose. NASA decided not to give it substantial backing, Dyson said, and the scientific community ". , . refused to become interested in the technical problems of propulsion As an example of what he called "political reasons," Dyson said that any project using nuclear bombs is not "politically popular," because of the fear that they might explode on the ground. He said that despite technical means available to prevent this, public fear of its happening carries weight with public officials. MILAN, Italy —(JP)— A bag of high explosives was found Saturday aboard a coach on a train from Munich. Police speculated the charge might have been destined for the Mont Blanc meeting this week of presidents Charles de Gaulle of France and Giuseppe Saragat of Italy. It was the third time in the last eight months explosives had been found on Italian trains moving through northeast Italy, an area often troubled by terrorists in an Italian-Austrian border dispute. In Woman's Bag A policeman found the latest batch — more than 11 pounds of plastic and regular explosive, plus 46 feet of fuse —in a woman's traveling bag, while the train was standing in Milan Station. Also in the bag were two children's books written in German. The train originated in Munich and was headed for Turin. Investigators said they believed tlie bag was abandoned because of increasingly strict police security precautions being taken along transport lines in all of north Italy in view of the De Gaulle-Saragat meeting at Courmayeur Friday to open the Mont Blanc Auto Tunnel. Not Easily Forgotten "That bag is something no one would ever forget during a trip," said a police official. "We are doing our best to find out who was carrying it. The coach 's final destina- Yugoslavian Court Sentences Poisoner LJUBLJANA, Yugoslavia— (JP) —A twice-divorced woman physician of 43 was convicted by a court in Ljubljana, Yugoslavia, Saturday of killing her 30-year-old lover with poison pudding. The court sentenced Dr, Anna Maria Holejov to 13 years in prison for the death in 1964 of Jozef Derganc, a student of sociology. Dr. Holejov was quoted by investigators as saying she had fed Derganc poison but only to keep him for herself after he became interested in a young woman. She denied any intent to kill and was quoted as saying she only wanted to weaken him. Capture Gunman Who Slew Barber, Wounded 3 Others VANCOUVER, Wash. —UP) — A young gunman shot a man to death and wounded three other persons, two critically, before he was cornered and captured in a barber shop Saturday. The barber, Howard G. Morford, was shot in the back as he carried a wounded customer from his shop. Morford staggered across the street with the customer, where he died on the steps of a tavern. The Wounded Wounded were Mrs. Jennevieve Jennings, 52, in critical condition at a hospital in Vancouver; Dennis Charles Jones, 18, Battle Ground, Wash., in critical condition with a wound in the abdomen, and Edgar Allen Waser, 20, La Center, Wash., in serious condition at a hospital with a wound in the upper leg. Sheriff Clarence McKay of Clark County held a young man in connection with the case, but refused to identify him. Police said this is what happened: A man called a cab to his motel and Mrs. Jennings, whose husband owns the De Luxe City Cab Co., responded. Mrs. Jennings was shot four times and the man stole her cab. Gives Chase Near Ridgefield, about 10 miles north of Vancouver, Police Chief Hal Slutler of Battle Ground saw the cab and gave chase at speeds up to 100 miles per hour. The cab missed a curve and crashed into the tiny barber shop. The driver jumped out and with one of two pistols he was carrying shot Jones. The barber, Morford, grabbed Jones and started out the door, but was shot in the back. He stumbled across the street with Jones, then collapsed and died. A passerby, Waser, was shot in the leg. Chief Stutler fired two bullets into the shop, where the gunman hid behind the barber chair. The man threw up his hands and surrendered. He was being questioned in the sheriff's office in Vancouver. Brezhnev Urges Sino-Soviet Unity MOSCOW — (/P) — First Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev of the Soviet Communist Party called Saturday for Russian-Chinese unity to face what he called American aggression. Brezhnev accused the United States and other, unnamed "imperialist forces" of engaging in "open, arrogant interference in the affairs of other states." The Soviet Communist Party thinks that in this situation its prime duty is strengthening "unity of Communists of all countries," Brezhnev said. But, regretfully, he added,! there are differences in the world Communist movement. He did not name China or discuss the nature of the bitter ideological and nationalistic dispute between Moscow and Peking. Previous Soviet unity appeals in similarly vague terms have been spurned by Peking, YOU'LL BE LOOKING FOR The RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES and SUNDAY BULLETIN, too! • NO MATTER where you spend your vacation this exciting summer, you'll wont to keep pace with important events — especially each day's happenings bacl< home!

Turin is 60 miles from Courmayeur and the last major rail point before Courmayeur. Police did not rule out the possibility that the explosives had nothing to do with the Mont Blanc meeting and might have been connected with some terrorist action. Terrorists agitating for greater control for German-speaking residents of the Alto Adige, on the border with Austria, use bombing as a favorite weapon to dramatize their demands. Chicago Opens 'Pain' Clinic CHICAGO —(iP)— A pain clinic has been opened in Chicago to treat patients with severe, unrelenting pain and to conduct research into the nature, measurement and treatment of pain, Solomon Katz, president of the Mount Sinai Hospital Medical Center, which operates the clinic, said Saturday it is the only one in the area concerned both with the medical and psychological handling of chronic pain. Other pain clinics, he said, are concerned primarily with testing the various anesthetic agents and procedures. Patients will include those with spreading cancers, burns, gangrene, degenerative diseases, disabling back injuries and pain of psycho-physiologic origin. Three per cent of the patients currently under medical care at the clinic have chronic pain which has not been relieved by standard methods of treatment, according to Dr. Eric C. Kast, director of the clinic and assistant professor of medicine and psychiatry at the Chicago Medical School, "We are mainly interested in chronic pain that persists despite all medical and surgical efforts to relieve it," Kast said, "We have been surprised in our studies to find that human beings often endure an incredible amount of pain, far in excess of what we thought possible," CHICAGO'S CONNECTION Chicago is the only U,S, city having a water thoroughfare connecting the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway with the Mississippi River system, HRST FRATERNITY First American fraternal society bearing a Greek letter name (Phi Beta Kappa) was founded at the College of William and Mary in 1776, —AP Wlrephoto CABBIE TO RUN -Christopher Columbus Vespucci, Bible-quoting Newark cab driver, has announced his candidacy for governor of New Jersey.
