A program commemorating Wisconsin Lithuanian Day will be held begining at 4 p.m. at Minkowski Grove on Highway 32, two miles north of Kenosha, sponsored by the Racine and Milwaukee chapters of the Lithuanian Community of the U.S.A., Inc., and the American Lithuanian Council Chapters of Kenosha and Racine. John Milisauskas, Kenosha, general program chairman, said the observance is intended to keep alive the hopes of persons in the captive nations that they may again enjoy freedom. Cites Resolution "On June 21, the House of Representatives passed a resolution by a unanimous vote, urging President Johnson to direct the attention of the world opinion at the United Nations to the denial of the rights of self-determination for the peoples of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania," Mil­ isauskas said. "At a time when Moscow and other Communit capitals are so critical of the United States in its defense of South Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic," he said, "the president's action could serve as an awkward reminder to the Kremlin of its duplicity, if its masters are capable of embarrassment over their inconsistency." It was on June 14, 1940, that Soviet armies disregarded treaties of peace and non- —Journal-Times Photo GATEWAY GIFTS — A portable stereo set, ping pong table and pool table were among the gifts members of the Welcome Wagon have presented to residents of Gateway House, 2016 Washington Ave. The Gateway House was opened in May, 1964, by the Racine County Mental Health Assn. to help patients who have won the battle against mental illness in an institution to make their readjustment to community life.

Sonic Flights to Continue MILWAUKEE —(m— Sonic booms will continue in parts of Wisconsin this week as B58 Hustlers from the Air Force Base at Peru, Ind., repeat flights from Amery, Wis., over Milwaukee. A spokesman for the 440th Troop Carrier Wing said Saturday the flights Monday through Friday will be from 8:15 to 8:35 p.m. and from 9:15 to 9:35. The flight paths and times correspond to the same schedule observed last week. aggression and moved 12 divisions of troops into Lithuania, Milisauskas pointed out. Impose Puppet Regime A puppet regime was ini-[ posed with formation of a new government through mock Communist-style "elections" which selected candidates nominated by the Community Party. All non-Communist organizations had been dissolved prior to the "elections" and most of their leaders and active members were arrested. On July 21, 1940, the so- called People's Diet voted as its first order of business to petition the Kremlin to accept Lithuania as one of the republics of the USSR. Acceptance of the petition on Aug. 3, 1940, ended the short 22 years of independence that had been won after World War I. The United States has refused to recognize the Societ action as a will of the people and officially, Lithuania still exists, so far as America is concerned. "Despite the oppression of the past 25 years," Milisaus­ kas said, "we still maintain hope that Lithuania will again be free. Before its independence was regained in 1918, the nation had been under the subjugation of Czarist Russia for 120 years." Airman 2/c Thomas W.

With that thesis as his keynote, Louis Miller outlined the aims of the Negro American Labor Council (NALC) Saturday night at a meeting of the Racine branch of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People. Miller is president of the Milwaukee NALC chapter, organized in 1961. To Organize Here A Racine chapter is being organized, with Miss Audrey M. James of 949 Washington Ave., LeRoy C. Wooley of 1338 Hamilton St. and Calvin Sherard, president of the Milwaukee chapter, spearheading organizational efforts. Miller, addressing the NAACP branch as a stand-in for Sherard, who was unable to appear, said job discrimination is the prime target of NALC, organized on the national level in 1960. A Philip Randolph, president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, is chairman of the NALC national steering committee. Miller said that through picketing, negotiation and se- portunities for Negroes at a number of Milwaukee businesses, including chain supermarkets, dairies, banks, a shoe firm, two meat markets and a restaurant chain. "After they (employers) know you mean business, they will conform," said Miller. Welcome All Help He said the NALC chapter is the "only organization in Milwaukee where people have lost their jobs fighting for jobs for other people." Julian Thomas, president of the Racine NAACP branch noted that the NAACP has itself been working to eliminate job discrimination in Racine. But the branch welcomes formation of an NALC chapter here, he said, because "we need all the help we can get." MARTINSVILLE, Va. — iff) —Henry County authorities awaited Saturday the arrival of a Wisconsin law officer expected to charge four prisoners here with murder. Sheriff C. P. Witt said the four youths have admitted participation in the robbery- slaying of a service station attendant in Madison. The youths being held were identified at John Edward Burt, 20, of Loretta, Wis.; his brother, Thomas Donald Burt, 19, of Loretta; Virthel O. Popplewell, 19, of Cincinnati, and Moir Reed Plaster, 19, of Martinsville. The four were picked up here friday in connection with the theft of tires, wheels and other automotive equipment from a garage in Henry County. They were charged with grand larceny. Since then, Witt said the four have signed statements admitting holding up a service station in Madison July 1. Witt said John Burt had admitted firing the bullet which killed the 20-year-old attendant Leroy Erdahl, of Stoughton, Wis., a student at Stout State University. Witt said John Burt, Popplewell and Plaster have also admitted forging leave papers with which they flew to this country from Wuerzburg, Germany, were they were stationed with the 3rd Infantry Division. Army officials said detain­ ers had been filed for the trio for being absent without leave since March 22. Army spokesmen said the three have been sought since then for questioning in the death of a German cab driver, Kurt Pues- ser, near Schewinfurt on that date. No formal charges have been filed against the four youths in the Wisconsin slaying. Two deputies from Dane County, Wis., are here, however, and participated in questioning. Deputy District Atty. Don­ ald MacCallum of Dane County was on his way here by plane to charge the four, but was grounded in Cincinnati. He was expected to arrive either late Saturday night or early Sunday. Authorities said the four would stand trial in Wisconsin before facing the larceny charges here. 1st District Legion Posts to Lead Convention Parade The 46 posts of the American Legion's 1st District, which includes Racine, Kenosha, Rock, Walworth and Waukesha counties, will lead the legion's state convention parade next Sunday, July 18, at Waukesha. Ralph W. Bohnsack of Burlington, 1st District commander, was assigned the lead position because Legion posts in the district achieved a membership record. 3-Hour Parade It is the second successive year the 1st District has had the lead position. Bohnsack estimated at least 60 units would represent the 46 posts from the five-county area. Parade units will include color guards, drill teams, drum and bugle corps, marching band, comedy vehicles and floats. The parade will start at 2 p.m. and is expected to last three hours. More than 250 units will participate including 55 marching bands. Preceding the parade, 1,200 Legion delegates and 600 auxiliary delegates will be in convention, beginning Thurs-, day, July 15.

Int'l Fire Buffs Lynx Killed Causing Massive Short Circuit MOUNTAIN CITY, Nev.— m—lt took a bit of sleuthing, but the power company officials finally figured out how a lynx put out the lights, turned off the heat, caused a fire and got electrocuted in the process. It seems the wildcat jumped a chain-link fence at the power company substation, leaped to a transformer and touched two wires at the same time, causing a massive short circuit.
