ROBERT C. WEAVER, head of the wuw Department of Housing and Urban Development, appears
before the Senate Banking Committee. Seated on his left is Sen. Jacob Javits (R-NY).

when Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzen-
bach, who originated the bill in
the executive branch and helped
guide it through Congress. will
rise personally to defend it. It
will be his first argument before
the court as attorney general.
Katzenbach, wearing the tradi -
tional formal attire of government
lawyers before the court, listen-
ed and took notes yesterday as:
-South Carolina's youthful at-
torney. David W. Robinson II, ar-
gued that those provisions of the
law abolishing literacy tests in
certain states whose voter reg-
istration or turnout fell below 50
per cent in November 1964 "are
not legislation but congressional
adjudication."
Robinson complained that such
a law is discriminatory because
even if Massachusetts. which uses
a literacy test should fall below
the 50 per cent mark in 1968,
it would not be affected by the
1965 act.
South Carolina contends the law
is inatpropriate for enforcing the
Constitution's 15th Amendment-
forbidding denial of the right to
vote because of race.
No Objection
Robinson, making his second
appearance before the high court,
said his state "doesn't object to
the federal' government's concern
over equality for the Negro-but
the remedy must square with basic
constitutional commands."
Virginia's Asst. Atty. Gen. R.
D. McIlwaine III, told the court
the 15th Amendment "conferred
no power on Congress to alter,
amend, suspend or abolish liter-
acy tests."
The Virginia lawyer contended
that his state's requirement is the
"most nondiscriminatory literacy
test that can be imagined." And
he noted that framers of the 15th
Amendment voted down attempts
to include a provision abolishing
literacy tests.
The attorney for Alabama Gov.
George C. Wallace, Francis J.
Mizell. contended that "Congress
never enacted any thing more fla-
grantly unconstituti anal."
Mizell said the law, which au'-
thorizes the attorney general to
appoint examiners at his discre-
tion, "makes the attorney general
both judge and executioner."

SAIGON (P) - The Viet Cong
yesterday kidnaped an American
civilian official north of Saigon,,
staged two sharp attacks on the
capital's doorstep, and threw a
grenade at U.S. troops in the city
itself.
The sudden upsurge of Viet
Cong violence came as the U.S.
Army ordered a 78-hour cease-fire
to begin at noon Thursday-11
p.m. Wednesday EST-to conform
with a truce for the lunar new
year proclaimed by South Viet
Nam.
The Viet Cong, which has or-
dered a four-day cease-fire be-
ginning at 11 p.m. Wednesday,
apparently was bent on stirring
up as much trouble as possible
before calling a temporary halt
to hostilities.
In Saigon, a Viet Cong terror-
ist threw a grenade into a jeep
loaded with U.S. servicemen. They
leaped out before the grenade
exploded. Another terrorist shot
and killed a Saigon policeman.

over of the government, Ironsi
suspended Nigeria's top civilion of-
ficials, including Balewa and
President Azikiwe Nnamdi. Bale-
wa was kidnaped along with Fi-
nance Minister Festus Oketie Eben
at the outbreak of trouble Satur-
day.
Apparently British Prime Min-
ister Harold Wilson will make no
move toward recognition of the
provisional regime in Lagos un-
til it is clear that BaleWa is defi-
nitely out.
Wait-and-See
Azikiwe, who is convalescing in
Britain from an operation. in-
dicated a wait-and-see attitude
similar to that of the British gov-
ernment.
He told newsmen he will remain
in London until called home, eith-
er, by the federal government or
the military regime.
The president, 61, said: "I do
not want my presence to compli-
cate what they are trying to do
there. My sole aim is to help in
the restoration of peace and hope
for preservation of the federation."
Figurehead
Azikiwe holds a nonpartisan
figurehead post but he can me-
diate disputes.
Nkrumah said he had decided
to recognize Ironsi's regime be-
cause the federal government had
surrendered to the military re-
gime and also because of state-
ments by Lagos authorities of
their intention. to hand over pow-
er to a civilian government when
a new constitution based on the
wishes of the people is drafted.
Ironsi, 41, chief of the Nigerian
army, announced the militay
takeover in a radio broadcast Sun-
day night. He said the army is
determined to suppress disorder.

Attacks
The two Viet Cong attacks came
north and south of Saigon. A large
Viet Cong force, backed by mor-
tars attacked the Vietnamese gov
ernment officer candidate school
,at Thu Duc, 10 miles north of
Saigon.
Twenty North Vietnamese pris-
oners, who will be released to
return to their homes Thursday,
are being held at the school, but
it was not known whether the
Viet Cong were aware of this.
Peking radio, heard in Tokyo,
quoted the Viet Cong as saying
the release of "20 so-called North
Vietnamese POW's is a clumsy
trick of psychological warfare." ,
School
A Vietnamese army spokesman
said the Viet Cong fired 10 rounds
of mortar shells on the south-
ern part of the school, then at-
tacked the northern perimeter. A
Viet Cong company pierced the
barbed wire and raked the billets
with rifles and machine guns.
The guerrillas fought into the
armored section of the school be-
fore being hurled back by a coun-
terattack.
The Viet Cong left 40 bodies be-
hind, the spokesman reported. But
before they left they killed five
women and three children, de-
pendents of the officer candidates.
One Viet Cong was captured. Viet-
namese casualties were reported

The court decided that only a
minimum of city' involvement
brings the U.S. Constitution into
play and thereby dictates that a
park made available by charitable
trust be opened to all members
of the public.
Thus the court by 6-3 decision
ruled that a park in Macon, Ga.,
willed originally for the exclusive
use of white people but since open-
ed to Negroes, did not become a
private facility merely because the
city turned it over to private trus-
tees.
