Riot Probes
Senate Leaders Say
Johnson' s Committee
Not Enough for Them
WASHINGTON (A - Congress
is going ahead full throttle with
multiple investigations of city
rioting without waiting for a pres-
idential commission to inquire in-
to causes of the violence.
Senate leaders Mike Mansfield
(L-Mont) and Everett M. Dirksen
(R-Ill) praised President John-
son's appointments but said in
separate interviews' that formal
organization of the White House
group today will not slow down
congressional action in the field.
Joint Investigation
Mansfield said: "The appoint-'
ment of the commission will not
stop consideration of a resolution
to have a Senate-House commit-
tee make an investigation. Very
likely a resolution will be voted
Dirksen pointed to a scheduled
hearing Wednesday by the Senate
Judiciary Committee on the.
House anti-riot bill as the focal
point of an immediate' inquiry
into the violent civil disorders.
The committte has altered its
rules to permit live broadcasting
of testimony and has asked Atty.
Gen. Ramsey Clark to be the first
witness. It is requesting Mayor!
Jerome Cavanagh of Detroit to
Broaden Terms
The committee plans to call
other mayors and civil right lead-
ers with the obvious intent to
broadening the terms of the House
bill before it.
The bill at present would make
it a federal offense to cross or
communicate across a state line
with the intent of inciting a riot.
The Senate juvenile delinquen-
cy subcommittee heard an appeal
yesterday from Clark for action
on a bill which would prohibit the
interstate mail order sale of fire-
arms to~ individuals, ban dealers
from selling' hand guns to non-
residents of a state and tighten
controls for import of weapons.
Chairman Thomas J. Dodd (D-
Conn) said he will offer the meas-
ure as an amendment to the anti-
riot bill.
Presidential Inquiry -
The presidential inquiry com-
mission, headed by Democratic
Gov. Otto Kerner of Illinois, with
Republican -Mayor John Lindsay
* of New York as vice chairman,
meets Saturday morning at the
White House with Johnson.
Dirksen said. he thinks it may
take time for the commission to
organize, obtain a staff, review
the riot situation and get its in-
quiry going.
Mansfield and Dirksen agreed it
will take congressional action to
make disaster relief funds avail-
able to devastated Detroit. Cava-
nagh has proposed such action.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (P)-The
arrest of 35 Indonesian generals
and other military leaders is an
army measure to get tough with
supporters of ex-President Sukar-
no, informed sources said yester-
The arrests were looked upon
as a precautionary cleanup, and
there was no indication that a
coup was in the making because.
none of those picked up in the
past 10 days had troops to sup-
port them, the sources within the
military said.
The Java military command at
a meeting last week resolved to
crush all Sukarno supporters.
Three of those detained are
known as chronic intriguers, with
strong Sukarno ties.
Suharto Worried
The army first announced 10
days ago that 15 military men
had been arrested for pro-Sukar-
no activity detrimental to the
"new order," meaning the mili-
tary backed government of Gen.
Suharto. Suharto has often ad-
mitted he does not command the
loyalty of all military elements.
The public was startled earlier
this week when it was announced
that 20 more men, including some
officers, were arrested from the
ranks of the Strategic Army Re-
serve Command. Informants said
most of those in the second group
were detained for criminal acts
in Jakarta.
Most of the pro-Sukarno group
of military men picked up were

former members of the Brawid
Java Army Command that con-
trols East Java, where Sukarno
was born.
Long known as the "East Java
group," several have been held
for interrogation two or three
times since Sukarno was pushed
from power last year. The names
are being kept secret by army
,One man known to be under
arrest for his pro-Sukarno activi-
ties is Brig. Gen. Sukendro.

He was arrested three weeks
ago before, and possibly as a re-
sult of information from him,
the army picked up the 15 other
military men. Some were released
after a few days of interrogation.
Indonesia's top surviving Com-
munist, Sudisman, was sentenced
to death Thursday for being in-
volved in the attempted Red
coup of Sept. 1, 1965, that led to
Sukarno's downfall. The army
killed thousands of Communists
in the aftermath of the uprising.

Philadelphia LeadersTerm
Anti-Riot Action Premature,

of 150 Negro and white leaders
condemned Philadelphia's limited.
anti-riot emergency proclamation
yesterday as "premature and an
incitement to riot." They insisted'
it "has increased the tension" and
urged its immediate withdrawal.,
The bi-racial group suggested
the best way to avert instant vio-
lence in the nation's fourth lar-
gest city is with 10,000 more jobs
for Negro males, more sidewalk
sprinklers, more playgrounds for
children, and immediate block by
block extermination of slum hous-
ing rats and vermin.
Assembly Law
Mayor James H. J. Tate invoked
a 117 year law Thursday night in
directing police to prohibit groups
of 12 or more people from gather-
ing on the streets and in open
areas; except for organized recre-
ation. He said he took the action
-effective at least until Aug 11-
as "a preventive measure to pro-
tect the lives and property" of the
city's 2 million citizens, one third
The protestors, however, said in

bers of his 5.900 member force
with machine guns, shot guns and
high powered rifles, ordered distri-
bution of 100,000 posters bearing
the proclamation. They were
tacked on poles and trees and
placed in store windows, barber
shops and libraries.
Levy Anderson, first deputy city
solicitor, said police will use dis-
cretion in enforcing the emergency
law, and won't interfere with
peaceful gatherings, including
civil rights demonstrations. But
he emphasied any group of 12 or
more "where there is a potential
for violence" will be dispersed.

Some gas bombs were thrown

old Negro was shot and killed.
Cincinnati, Ohio, listed just six
fires - after the50 Wednesday
night. But one caused $100,000

Michigan Locations
In South Bend, Ind., where 300
National Guardsmen stood by,
there was a flurry of firebombs,
but rain helped cool off the re-
bellious teenagers, police said.
Police in Muskegon, Mich., pop-
ulation 46,500, arrested 40 persons
after a gas station was set afire
by a firebomb. There were 12 fires
and 10 arrests at Flint, Mich.
