THE RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES VOL. 35, No. 29 RACINE, WIS., SUNDAY, JULY 18, 1965 60 PAGES~-5 SECTIONS~20 CENTS Greek Police Attempt to Halt New Rioting ATHENS —(/?>)—Fresh rioting erupted in crisis-torn Greece Saturday night as the new government fought to quell disorder in this Atlantic Alliance nation. Hundreds of demonstrators supporting ousted Premier George Papandreou fought with sticks and stones against helmeted, club-swinging police in the streets of Salonilca, Greece's second largest city. Ambulances rushed scores of injured away from the clashes, which broke out when demonstrators, chanting "Democracy" and waving placards with Papandreou's name, refused police commands to disperse. Stadium Jammed In Athens, Papandreou, in a message to 30,000 followers jammed into a football stadium, assailed the cabinet of premier George Athanasiadis Novas as traitors and "slaves to the royal-court" — A reference to the fact they were sworn in by King Constantine Friday without parliamentary consultations. He called for the government's immediate resignation and declared "I appeal tO' the Greek people for a peaceful uprising against the court slaves — the Athanasiadis Novas government." Police stood by to keep order in the stadium and among 10,000 more persons massed outside. The meeting broke up without incident, but blocks away thousands suddenly staged a demonstration in the heart of the city, shouting, screaming and bringing midtown traffic to a halt. Braced for Struggle The rioting and the demonstrations broke out after Ath­ anasiadis Novas braced his day-old cabinet for a struggle to face down the Papandreou forces. Earlier in the day Papan­ dreou had given : the green light for what he called "peaceful popular demonstrations." Athanasiadis Novas must go before parliament for a confidence vote within two weeks. If he fails to win it, Constantine can try once more to get somebody to form a government. Then he may have to call elections. Only a week ago Greeks were drinking toasts to the royal family; Constantine's wife, Queen Anne-Marie, gave birth to a daughter. Princess Alexia. —Journal-Times Photo HO, HO, HO: BOY, IS IT HOT IN HERE— Before the 5th Centurj' Christians were undecided whether to celebrate Christmas on Jan. 6, March 25 or December 25, but for the Charles Christoffersen's of 1330 Grove Ave., there was no question: Christmas should be celebrated when the family is together, and that was Saturday, July 17. The Christoffersens put up a tree, decorated the house and hung mistletoe when a sister and her family, the Glenn Andersons of Anaheim, Calif,, visited last week. Santa even sent an emissary from the North Pole to visit, above with Lorie Christoffersen, 3, and Paula Susan Anderson, 15. But happy as the celebration was, Santa's helper was glad to get back north and out of the 78 degree heat. An AP News Analysis U.S. Seems Slipping into Asia Land Wat By Fred S. Hoffman (AP Military Affairs Writer) WASHINGTON — i/P) — Almost inexorably, events in South Viet Nam appear to be pulling the United States into the kind of Asian ground war that many U.S. military men have felt could be fought only at great disadvantage. This is happening because the South' Vietnamese Army has been unable to stem the growing power of the Communists who, some sources say, now exercise varying degree of control over about 80 per cent of the country. The use of American air power in Viet Nam has not been enough, and now U.S. authorities are facing the unpleasant prospect that U.S. ground troops in greater numbers may have to be thrown into the breach. Steeling the Nation President Johnson has been speaking recently in a way calculated to steel the nation for what may be a dramatic increase in U.S. involvement (Turn to Page 2A, Col. 1) Mars Photos Show Moon-like Terrain Guam May Get More B52s for Viet Nam Use WASHINGTON — iJP) — More B52 bombers may be sent to Guam if the use of the strategic-mission planes for tactical warfare in South Viet Nam continues at the present level or increases. This outlook grew Saturday with the fourth mission of B52s to hit suspected Viet Cong targets within a month. Saturday's mission, flown by up to 30 of the big planes, carrying 500 tons of conventional "iron" bombs, was described by U. S. military brief­ ers as the first time B52s have been used in direct, co-ordi­ nated support of a ground- force attack on a guerrilla area. If the operation proves successful, it presumably will be the pattern for other and perhaps more frequent strikes. Two Points Speculation on an increased B52 force on Guam is based on two points: —The missions of between 25 and 30 aircraft used in Saturday's operation and in some of the earlier attacks appears to represent virtually the total available force of the Guam base. If the strategic bombers are to be sent regularly to Viet Cong targets, more planes, air crews and maintenance personnel will be needed unless both men and aircraft are overused. —The basic mission of the strategic air command is to make massive nuclear attack on strategic targets in a major war. For up to 8 or 10 hours, almost the entire Guam force of B52s is absent from the base during strikes into Viet Nam. Should a swift confrontation occur and a general war flash up, the Guam component of the nuclear retaliation sys- (Turn to Page 2A, tel. 2) Pickets in Bogalusa Are Jeered at. Pelted BOGALUSA, La. — i/P) — Civil rights workers paraded and picketed Saturday despite a barrage of fruit and eggs and a shower of soap suds. About 200 biracial demonstrators marched on the city hall where they held a brief prayer service. Onlookers yelled and blew horns and pelted them with ripe tomatoes and eggs. William H. Park, a white civil rights worker from Bogalusa, was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace by using obscene language, interfering with and failure to identify himself to a police officer. A young Negro girl also was arrested. Earlier, about a half-dozen pickets appeared at a shopping center at the same time as some storekeepers were washing their windows and sidewalks. Some of the pickets were dampened by the storekeepers. What's Where Business News . Page 6C Editorial Pa.^e 14A Local News ...

The five, all from Natchez, Miss., handed out cards which read: "The only reason you are white today is because your ancestors believed and practiced segregation." John Doar, on a peacemaking mission in this milltown of 23,000 population, staged another round of talks'with Negro and white leaders. Doar, who heads the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, came to Bogalusa two days ago after Mayor Jesse Cutrer wired the White House for help in melting down the racial tension of this southeast Louisiana community, 60 miles north of New Orleans. Friday's civil rights march was turned back when clashes occurred, and 13 persons were arrested. Gov. John J. McKeithen has met with white and Ne.oro state leaders, and he called on them to make recommendations in restoring harmony.

Car Crash Kills Seven in Illinois JOLIET, 111. — (/P) —Seven persons were killed and five others injured in an auto crash some 25 miles southwest of Joliet, police said Saturday. One of the dead was identified as Carl W. Drahle, 50, of New Lenox, 111. Coroner Willard Blood of Will County withheld the names of the other dead pending notification of their families. Burt Blood said they included three servicemen and reservist from Chicago; a Chicago woman and a woman from suburban Glen Ellyn. Given first aid at St. Joseph Hospital in Joliet were Robert Calvert, 8; his mother, Geraldine, 46 and his father, Fran- zebert, 49, all of Bridgeview, a suburb southwest of Chicago. The hospital said it had admitted Robert's grandparents, Elmer Calvert, 78, and Elvira Ryan, 65. Police said the Drahle car appeared to have been travel-' ing north in a southbound lane of a four-lane divided highway. LBJ to Attend Stevenson Rites THURMONT, Md. — (^)-— President and Mrs. Johnson will attend final rites for Adlai E. Stevenson in Bloomington, 111., Monday. Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers disclosed Saturday night the president's decision to fly to Bloomington for the services. The p r e s i d e n t's elder daughter, Lynda Bird, who is vacationing in the west, has made known that she, too, plans to fly to Bloomington. Johnson flew to Camp David by helicopter late Saturday to spend the weekend at the presidential retreat. Japanese Navy Plane Falls; Fear 11 Dead TOKYO—(i^)—A Japanese Navy plane caught fire in flight and crashed into the Pacific Saturday, and a defense agency spokesman said all 11 occupants are presumed dead. • - —AP WJrephoto This is the third picture of Mars made by Mariner 4, and the closest photo yet released. The area shown is southwest of Trivium Charontis on the western edge of the Amazonis Desert. Scientists said small features in the picture are not more than two miles across. The large feature near the center is approximately 12 miles across. —AP Wlrephoto This is tlie second picture made by Mariner 4 during its swing past Mars. It shows the bright areas Elysium and Amazonis, just northwest of the dark area, Trivium Charontis. Sign Tentative Pact in Chicago Cab Strike More Close-ups Released; No 'Canals'Seen PASADENA, Calif. — (JP) — Two more of Mariner 4's close-ups of Mars were released Saturday and the latest showed markings reminiscent of those on the moon. The second and third photos, like the first, displayed broad, bright areas that probably are deserts. There was no sign of "canals" some astronomers say they have seen; no evidence of any form of life. But the third and closest shot showed what obyiously are bumps or depressions. They strongly resemble some of the shallow craters depicted in close-ups of the moon by Ranger spacecraft. Dr. William H. Pickering, director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which built and guided Mariner, told a news conference that no niore of an expected total of up to 21 pictures will be released "for a matter of weeks." Will Improve During this period, he said, engineers and computers >?viU vastly improve the qualty of the first three shots, and others yet to be relayed to earth as Mariner heads into orbit around the sun. Pickering called the transmission of the photos across 134 million miles of space "a magnificent success" and a fitting climax to the United States' $200 million Mars exploration program — a prestigious first exceeding Russian deep space efforts. Here is a description of the pictures released Saturday: No. 3 — The best so far. High contrast. Shows details as small as two miles across. Running across the top of the frame is a series of markings, at least one of which could be a small crater, similar to those found on the moon. West of the crater is what looks like a long, shallow depression, or valley. The picture covers an area 175 miles by 310 miles, was taken from an altitude of 9,500 miles. Overlaps First Phot No. 2 — This photo, covering an area 186 miles by 550 miles, lies just north of the area covered by frame no. 3 and midway between the deserts Elysium and Ama­ zonis. No major surface markings are visible in this frame, which overlaps into the area covered by the first picture. Picture No. 1, released Thursday, was man's first close-up photograph of another planet. It shows a chunk of the edge of Mars and beyond that the dark void of space.

Jerry Feldman, president of the Checker Taxi Co. and Robert Samuels, president of the Yellow Cab Co., signed the tentative pact, with Everett Clark, president of local 777, Democratic Union organizing committee, and Bill Gilkey, vice president of the union." William Cherry of the U. S. conciliation and mediation service, said that union members will meet this morning to vote on the contract. A union spokesman said a two-thirds majority of favorable votes is necessary for contract approval. Cherry and officials of the companies and the union said terms of the new agreement will not be disclosed until tomorrow's meeting. Some 6,000 drivers and mechanics represented by the union, affiliated with the AFL- CIO Seafarers Union, left their jobs June 26 in a contract dispute. Feldman estimated the gross loss to the two compan- es because of the strike would total $2.1 million. He estimated the loss in wages to striking drivers and mechanics was $1.3 million. Some 1,000 independent drivers were not on strike and continued to operate during the strike. Racine Area WEATHER Mostly sunny today. Fair with little change in temperature tonight and Monday.
