HUAC Investigates Recent Riots


Riot Control
tional Guard is reviewing its riot
control training in the wake of
sharp criticism and rising de-
mands on Guardsmen in putting
down civil disturbances.
Gov. Richard J. Hughes of New'
Jersey complained about the
Guard's performance in the New-
ark turmoil, and in Michigan
more than 8,000 Guardsmen were
unable to restore order when the
Detroit riot erupted.
Pentagon sources said yesterday
the National Guard Bureau was
closely examining its minimum
riot, control training demands,
which now require state units to
have at least six hours of instruc-
tion a year.
Most officers believe the scope
of the training is adequate. It
covers guard duty, bayonet train-
ing, hand to hand fighting, com-
bat formation, and use of tear
gas. Guardsmen may simply need
more of it.
