At Road Block Alpha "I'm a Christian," the woman replied quietly. Then she shut the door again. Trouble Seems to Gravitate to Once-Typical Little Rock Corner Blake grabbed the rifle of the first soldier to reach him.. Soldier and civilian fell, wrestling for the gun. ' i The other paratrooper stepped over them, raised his rifle, and smashed the butt end into Blake's forehead, directly between the eyes. Blood gushed himself in the process. One way or the other, Downs got a three-inch gash in his arm. Not all of the wounds were inflicted on white flesh. A 15-year-old Negro delivery boy pedaled his bike down Schiller St. and started to lug a basket of food into a house in the middle BvMiow word of the attack ADVERTISEMENT REPORT FORMULA OFFERS DOSE-BY-DOSE REPRIEVE FROM PAINS OF RHEUMATISM, ARTHRITIS Curbs Pain Dose-by-Dosel Users Rejoice Supply Rushed Hers The discovery of the drug, salicyla. mide. which is reported safe to taks without prescription yet has the powe( to brine blessed resDite from the minor had reached Roadblock Alpha, Army jeep careened to a halt at week,' it is a typical street inter ana a squad of paratroopers The first casualty: was C.

(UP) The residents call it the corner of 14th and Schiller. The 101st Airborne Division calls it Roadblock Alpha. Except for certain features which have been added this aches and pains of rheumatism and arthritis, is seen as offering dose-by- obscurity. It is one short block dose relief to countless sufferers from these dread conditions. To bring this drug to all .it has been formulated in easy-to-take tablets, called REMA-TRON. which act internally to curb the minor but none-the-less arthritia from Central High School. Early Wednesday morning, an and rheumatism distress in hands, arms, legs and shoulders. While results from the use of REMATRON are most impressive, it is not offered as a the 14th St. curb. A paratrooper with a walkie-talkie radio sat in the back seat. A tall, wiry major in battle dress stepped out to the sidewalk. Minutes later a detachment of 40 troops marched up. The major deployed them in two groups, on either side of 14th St., with about eight men lined up abreast across the roadway. It was at this point that 14th and Schiller became Roadblock Alpha. From that moment until now, no one has passed the intersection and for some reason, trouble seems to gravitate to 14th and Schiller. . from the wound. The fallen trooper retrieved his gun; Blake was hustled off for medical treatment. Casualty No. 2 was Paul Downs, 35, a white salesman from Springfield, Ark. His mistake was telling a paratrooper, "I'm from the South, I move slow." What happened thereafter happened quickly, and there are two versions. One, by Downs, has it that the paratrooper jabbed him with a bayonet. The other, by the Army, holds that Downs tried to brush aside an outstretched bayonet, and cut 1401 Schiller St., a frame house with green-and-white striped awnings, right on the fateful corner. Blake was one of about 20 white men who sought refuge on the tiny porch when bayonet-bearing troops moved out from the roadblock to clear the adjacent sidewalks. The paratroopers ordered them off the porch. The order was greeted with shouts of "This is private property . '. . we're guests here." Two helmeted privates started- toward the porch. ine squad commander - gave two rapid fire orders. "Fix bayonets! Charge!" At the word charge, the troopers let go in unison the bone-chilling battle cry of the famous fighting division that told the German army to go to hell at Bastogne. The boys broke and ran in every direction. For the first time in a long tense day, some of the troopers laughed out loud. Then they marched back to Roadblock Alpha.

The white woman who lived there saw his plight and quickly let him in, slamming the door behind him. Some of the whjte boys fell to work demolishing the bicycle. Others stood on the lawn and shouted threats to burn down the house unless the Negro was evicted. The woman came to the door and told them to go away.
