Job Protests

Government Action
On Unemployment
ATLANTA, Ga. (MP)-Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr., taking up a new
slogan of "Jobs or income for
all," said yesterday he will lead
m a s s i v e demonstrations, next
spring in the nation's capital to
demand action by Congress and
the President.
King said his organization, the
Southern Christian Leadership
Conference, "will lead waves of
the nation's poor and disinherited
to Washington, D.C., next spring
to demand redress of their griev-
ances by the United States gov-
ernment."
Ten Major Cities
He said the demonstrations
would start "around the first of
April." The next three months
will be spent in organizing groups
of 200 in major cities, which he
declined to name.
"We will choose certain targets
in Washington and demonstrate
around them," King said at a
news conference. "The targets
will be federal agencies."
Targets might include Congress
and possibly the White, House,
King said. He declined to give
specific targets, however,'or de-
tails of the civil disobedience to be
5 used.
Nonviolence
The initial action will be taken
by the cadre of 3,000 persons dis-
ciplined in nonviolence, he said.
At the same time, King said, some
demonstrators would begin walk-
*ing to Washington from such
areas as Mississippi.
Simultaneousjy, demonstrations
-such as school boycotts-would
be undertaken in the 10, cities
from which volunteers come, he
said.
"This will be a move that will
be consciously designed to develop
massive dislocation without de-
stroying life or property," King
said.

LBJ, Wilson
May Confer
In January
By The Associated Press
LONDON - Prime. Minister
Harold Wilson was reported yes-
terday to be planning talks with
President Johnson in Washington
- and possibly with Premier
Alexei N. Kosygin in Moscow-on
the Vietnam war and other world
problems.
Qualified informants said that
although no arrangements have
been made final a Wilson-John-
son meeting next month is in the
cards.
Meet with Kosygin
The British leader may subse-
quently visit Moscow if he feels
an encounter with Kosygin might
advance prospects for Vietnam
peacemaking.
Wilson's thinking was disclosed
as some Communist East Euro-
pean diplomats spread word that
they believe a Christmas truce in
Vietnam could become an occa-
sion for meaningful peace ex-
changes.
The Communist sources ex-
pressed the view that the North
Vietnamese could be counted on
to enter some form of peace talks
if they were sure the American
standoff would continue.
No Sign from Hanoi
The Hanoi regime meanwhile
has refused to offer any sign, or
pledge, that they would not ex-
ploit a truce by building up their
Viet Cong allies in the South.
A Soviet official in London 'who
declined to be identified said
Vietnamese peace talks could get
started, automatically if the
United States declared a perma-
nent halt to the bombing of North
Vietnam.
He stressed that the halt must
be permanent, saying any at-
tempt to link a temporary bomb-
ing pause to a commitment to
Hanoi to enter peace talks was
"blackmail."
Automatic Negotiations
With a permanent halt, "nego-
tiations on peace would be auto-
matic," he continued.
The Russian was speaking for
a group of 25 Soviet journalists
at a meeting with leading British
editors. Both the British and the
Russians spoke with the under-
standing they would not be quoted
by name. All the Russian speak-
ers were government or Commun-
ist party officials.
It was not immediately clear
whether a Wilson visit to Wash-
ington in January would suit the
President. Presumably this is
under discussion.

Turkish sources, however, made'
plain that Turkey would not re-
duce its forces on Cyprus belowj
the levels prescribed in the 1960
accords.
The Greek Orthodox archbishop
said he welcomed the appeal by
Secretary-General U Thant on

the levels prescribed in the 1960
Cyprus independence agreements.'
Premier Constantine Kollias ofj
Greece and Premier Suleyman
Demirel of Turkey said in their
acceptances that they were ready
to act on them "expeditiously." In{

NSA Accuses Hershey
Of Using Draft Illegally

Fifty students from Antioch College yesterday dipped what they said were draft cards into a cup of
human blood at a federal induction center in Cincinnati, Ohio. The action was described as a protest
against the war in Vietnam. '

ported that a Greek ship had left
for Cyprus to pick up the first
Greek contingent. Similar infor-
mation was relayed officially to
Turkey's Parliament in Ankara.
Speaking of the withdrawal of
all non-Cypriot forces other than
those of the United Nations, Ma-
karios said that "by such com-
plete demilitarization the cause
of peace in Cyprus will be served."
He also declared that "effective
guarantees against any military
intervention" in Cyprus' affairs
"is a demanding necessity for
peace and should be insured
through the Security Council.
Makarios added that any en-
largement of the role of the UN
force also would have to be con-
sidered by the council "with due
regard to the sovereignty of
Cyprus."
Makarios' reply appeared to
mark the end of the threat of
war between Greece and Turkey
over Cyprus which arose after 25
Turkish Cypriots were killed last
month in a clash with Greek
Cypriots.
Turks called for war, and the
government in Ankara massed its
forces for a move to the island to
protect the Turkish minority
there.

Cape Town Doctor Performs
Historical Heart Transplant

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON- The National
Students Association sought yes-
terday a court order barring Lt.
Gen. Lewis B. Hershey's bid to
strip military deferments from
persons interfering illegally with
recruiting or the draft.
Listed among plaintiffs in the
suit filed in U.S. District Court
here are student government pres-
idents of 15 universities, includ-
ing Harvard, California and Notre
Dame.
Violates Free Speech
As prepared, the complaint
charges Hershey's directive vio-
lates the conistitutional guarantee
of free speech and uses the draft
as an illegal means of punish-
ment.
Hershey, director of the Selec-
tive Service, wrote local draft
boards Oct. 24 suggesting that
draft-eligible men who illegally
interfere with recruiting or the
draft be denied deferment and be
reclassified for priority call up.
The NSA's complaint asks the
federal court to void Hershey's
directive and the machinery for
priority call up of specified indi-
viduals.
Moss Protests
Meanwhile, the issue has touch-
ed off an exchange of letters be-
tween Hershey and Rep. John E.
Moss (D-Calif.).
Moss has argued that any
punishment should be handled
through the courts, rather than

CAPE TOWN (A) - A South
African was reported in good
condition yesterday after under-
going what was described as the
first human heart transplant in
medical history.
Louis Washkansky, 55, under-
went the operation Sunday, re-
ceiving the transplated heart of
Denise Ann Darvall, 25, fatally in-

draft reclassification. He askedj
Hershey to justify his directive by1
citing specific laws.
"Military service is not only an
obligation but is a privilege," Her-
shey wrote. "Your whole argu-
ment is based on your assump-
tion that service in the military
represents some form of punish-
ment."

World News Roundup

jured in an automobile accident
the day before. Her heart was kept
"alive" for three hours with a
flow of fluid from the time of
her death until the operation.
Prof. Jan. H. Louw of Cape
Town University's medical school
reported Washkansky's heart had
been so bad that he had not been
expected to live long.
The transplanted heart is in
good condition, Louw said, and
required only a single shock to
start it beating after being trans-
planted during the five hour op-
eration.
Rejection of the heart by
Washkansky's body is the greatest
danger now, doctors reported.
Louw said drugs were being ad-
ministered to lessen the chances
of such a rejection.
The most serious possibility of
rejection will come at the end of

a week, he added. This is the
crucial time for the success of the
operation.
"Our main job now is the battle
to keep this man alive," Barnard
said. He explained there were no
serious problems in the trans-
plant.
Three years of research with
animals preceded the operation.
"This research was to work out a
technique," Barnard said.
"Once we decided we had this
worked out, we felt we could do
a transplant on a human.'. . We
realized that the donor would
probably have to be a victim of a
motor accident."
The 30 year gap in ages be-
tween donor and receiver makes
no difference, said Prof. Christian
Barnard, who led the surgical
team that performed the trans-
plant at Groote Schuur Hospital.

LONDON-A go slow strike of
British locomotive engineers built
up steadily yesterday and hit
homeward bound London com-
muters hard last night. Railroad
spokesmen said it will be worse,
today.
Transport Minister B a r b a r a
Castle said more than 100 com-
muter trains were canceled dur-
ing the morning rush period but
emergency arrangements to speed
vital supplies had worked "very
smoothly."
The nationalized railroad sys-
tem announced cancellation of 41
suburban trains even before the
homeward rush began.
The go slow dispute, which be-
gan at midnight, is expected to
become progressively effective as
the backlog of unmoved freight
traffic builds up. The leader of
the engineers union said it will be
in full swing within three days.

BETHLEHEM, Pa.-Bethlehem
Steel Corp., following the lead of
the nation's largest steelmaker,
yesterday rejected government
pleas to hold the price line and
hiked the base price of cold rolled
sheets used in autos and appli-
ances by $5 a net ton, effective
Dec. 15.
VV U.S. Steel Corp. had raised the
price last Friday, a move criti-
cized by Gardner Ackley, chair-
man of the President's Council of
Economic Advisers.
Now that Bethlehem, the na'-
tion's second largest steel pro-
ducer, has increased, it is expect-
ed that other firms will quickly
follow suit.
Bethlehem said the increase "is
less than one half of one per cent
of total billings."
The announcement said Beth-

lehem found it has to raise prices
because efforts to 'reduce operat-
ing costs and improve production
efficiency through new facilities
hadn't been enough to offset the
increased expenses.

WASHINGTON --The Supreme
Court agreed yesterday to con-
sider imposing a nationwide ban
on housing discrimination.
With President Johnson'sdopen
housing proposals close to defeat
in the Capitol, the justices de-
cided to plunge in and see wheth-
er the Constitution itself forbids
a realtor to refuse to sell to
Negroes.
The court may be persuaded by
the appeal of Joseph Lee Jones, a
Negro bail bondsman, and Bar-
bara Jo, his white wife, an almost
forgotten 1966 civil rights law
which could possibly be converted
into the open housing edict that
the President has been unable to
get from Congress.
Johnson's appeal to Congress
last year for a ban on housing
discrimination succumbed to a
Senate filibuster. Modified and
revived this year, the President's
proposals have not reached the
floor of the House or Senate.
