ROLE IN RIOTS:
Senate To Investigate Brooks
Before Draft Refusal Arrest

I7

i _

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (R) - Fred
Brooks, 20, a Black Power Negro,
walked out of an Army induction
center yesterday after refusing to
be drafted. But Senate investi-,
gators still want him in Wash-
ington next week for their probe
of last summer's riots.
Officials said Brooks will have
plenty of time to testify before
the Senate Investigations Com-
mittee before they close in on him
for refusing to take the Army
oath of allegiance.
"It's a long, administrative pro-
cess," one Justice Department
source said.
Brooks headed last summer's
controversial Liberation School
for young Negroes in Nashville.
He had been scheduled to testify
yesterday before the Senate sub-
committee which is looking into
the causes of the summer rioting.
When the investigators learned
of his draft call, they promptly
postponed this week's hearings
until Nov. 21-22.
"We wouldn't want to stand in
the way of his induction," one
source explained.
Brooks and Nashville Police
Capt. John Sorace, who first gave
Brooks national attention in ear-
lier Senate testimony, are sched-,

uled to testify regarding rioting
near Nashville's Negro college
campuses last April.
In his August testimony before
the Senate Judiciary Committee,
Sorace testifed the Liberation
School was teaching hatred of
the white race to Negro children
of elementary school age. His
testimony cost the school its sta-

tus as a Nashville-federal anti-
poverty project.
Brooks, Nashville chairman of
the Student Nonviolent Coordi-
nating Committee at the time of
the rioting, was suspended from
Tennessee A&I State University
for his part in the disturbances.
A faculty committee last month
refused to readmit him.

Officials Refuse Cards
In Boston Draft Protest

I

BOSTON IP)-An Assistant U.S.
Attorney,, citing orders of the At-
torney General, refused yesterday
to accept some 50 draft cards from
four representatives of antiwar
demonstrators.
The demonstrations were mark-
ed by two fights between the anti-
war group and pro-government
supporters.
The cards were brought to the
federal building from the Old
West Church where their owners
had turned them in as a protest
against the fighting in Vietnam.
Some 200 persons participated in
a memorial service for Vietnam

war dead at the church where a
fight broke out on the steps.
The Rev. Jack Mendelsohn,
minister of Arlington Street
Church Unitarian Universalist,
said 50 or 52 draft cards were
turned in and another seven or
eight burned.
On a half-mile march from the
church to the federal building, the
draft opponents were heckled and
pelted with snowballs.
At first the demonstrators were
locked out of the federal building.
Later a Justice Department rep-
resentative agreed to allow four
to go to the U.S. attorney's office.
