EDITOR'S NOTE: After its
long, hot summer, Chicago is
still an angry place, and Dr.
Martin Luther King' Jr. is still
there. "We are not anywhere
near being finished," he says,
but both Negroes and whites
are unhappy and the city may
face a long, hot winter.
CHICAGO (MP-Chicago had a
long, hot summer, and it may have
a long, hot winter, too.
What came out of Chicago's
simmering summer? Much jubli-
lation, wonder, dissent and hate,
and also an agreement between
two strong men-Dr. Martin Luth-
er King Jr. and Mayor Richard J.
Daley. Now comes the time of
testing, to see what has really
been achieved.
Says the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who

heads a group called Operation
Breadbasket: "If Santa Claus
don't come to the Negro this
Christmas, it's going to be a long,
hot winter, too."
What has been achieved since
King came to this city of a million
Negroes and 2.5 million whites in
the spring?
Basically, an open housing
agreement and a dent in the Job
market for Negroes.
Here is what King won:
-The city's Commission on
Human Relations will increase its
staff to aid actively in seeking out
violations of Chicago's open hous-
ing ordinance.
-The Chicago Real Estate
Board backed open housing, pro-
vided it applies to owners as well
as brokers.
-The Chicago Housing Author-

ity will no longer build projects'
exclusively in Negro neighbor-
-The Cook County Department
of Public Aid will make efforts
to seek the best housing available
for aid recipients, regardless of
-The Department of Urban Re-
newal agreed to search for the
best available housing for families
displaced by renewal projects.,
-Mortgage bankers affirmed
that their policy is to provide equal
service without regard to race.
-The Department of Justice
promised to inquire into the ques-
tions raised regarding discrimina-
tion in federally insured loans.
-R ea1i g i o u s representatives
agreed to a program of educating
their membership on the morality
of an open community.

Winter of Testing in


-The Chicago Federation of
Labor and Industrial Union Coun-
cil, and several financial and civic
organizations, pledged to support
open housing and to educate their
members along these lines.
-The Chicago Conference on
Religion and Race will form a

night anyway. We must improve'
conditions now in the slums."
King's next project is a grass
roots movement to clean up the
slums and an assault on the school
system. He said he plans to be in
Chicago until the end of 1967,
then will move on to another ma-

separate and continuing organiza- jor city. He did not single out his

World News Roundup


WASHINGTON (P) - President
Johnson now appears to be moving
decisively toward some reduction
of U.S. military forces in Europe,
probably beginning next year.
A study of allied defense stra-
tegy, to be made by the United
States, Germany and Britain, is
expected to provide a new basis
for troop strength decisions.
The study was announced last
week by Johnson and West Ger-
man Chancellor Ludwig Erhard.
The United States hopes to get the
work under way in three weeks
and have it completed by the end
of the year.
Nuclear Reliance
Informed U.S. officials already
believe, however, that one result,
due especially to the recent French
withdrawal of troops from the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion, will be a finding for greater
reliance on nuclear weapons in the
defense of Europe and therefore
a decline in manpower needs.
Greater dependence on nuclear
defenses would mean simply that
the time between an attack on
West Germany and the use of
nuclear weapons to punish the at-
tackers would be shorter by several
weeks than it now is.
French Break
The French break with NATO,
which became effective July 1, has
left West Germany as a frontline
country without backup territory.
All NATO bases are being moved
out and French forces separated
from NATO forces in West Ger-

Belgium Move Prompts
Call for Military Review

Mansfield (D-Mont) said yester-
day Belgium's decision to reduce
its military obligations to NATO
accents a need for a reassessment
of U.S.-European defense commit-
Although he faces stiff admin-
istration opposition to the move,
Mansfield, the Democratic leader,
said he will call up before mid-
month a resolution which would
put the Senate on record as favor-
ing a "substantial reduction" in
U.S. European ground forces.
But he conceded that if critics
can rally the votes to force com-
mittee hearings on the proposal,
the Senate itself is not likely to
come to grips with the issue un-
til next year.
And Senate Republican Leader
Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois said
in a separate interview that he for
one will insist upon such hearings.

Lin Piao Prominent in China
Anniversary of Mao Victory

He agreed with Mansfield, how-
ever, that the action of the Belgian
Cabinet in voting recently to re-
quest a cut in that nation's yet
unfulfilled commitment of ground
forces to NATO is likely to
strengthen the hand of those who
advocate U.S. troop withdrawals.
Brussels sources said the Bel-
gians want to reduce their obliga-
tions to the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization from six down to
four brigades.
Mansfield noted that this deci-
sion was taken at a time when
NATO is getting ready to move its
headquarters to Belgium from
France, which is withdrawing its
troops from control of the defense
"This is another good reason
for the United States to take an-
other look-see at the European
defense posture and consider most
seriously a reduction in our com-
mitments there," he said.
"I would not be surprised but
what the Belgian action represents
a widespread feeling among our
allies that some cutback in forces
is desirable. It certainly de-em-
phasizes the criticism of the 'sense
of the Senate' resolution on the
grounds that it calls for the kind
of unilateral action the Belgian
decision involves."
Mansfield said he hopes a study
of allied defenses by representa-
tives of the United States, Bri-
tain and West Germany may
bring some proposals for troop
reductions. It will get under way
late this month with John J. Mc-
Cloy, former high commissioner to
Germany, as top U.S. representa-

during riotous disorders that left
15 persons injured Sept. 6.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - More

TOKYO (AP) - Lin Piao's pre-
eminence in Communist China's
new power structure stood out
more than ever yesterday as Pe-
king marked the 17th anniversary
of the Communist takeover.
It was the biggest weekend cele-
bration of the year for Communist
China, and Defense Minister Lin,
Mao Tse-tung's "close comrade in
arms," was the biggest figure of
the festivities. He took the spot-
light from Mao, 72. Lin is 59.
Sharing the rostrum on the high
red walls of Peking's Heavenly
Peace Square with Mao, heir ap-
parent Lin was the key speaker.
While Mao beamedand remain-
ed silent despite Red Guard re-
quests in the past that he speak,
j,in spoke on his behalf.
"Al our achievements and suc-
cesses," Lin declared, "have been
scored under the wise leadership
of Chairman Mao and represent
the victory of Mao Tse-tung's
Mao responded to the cheers,
from the crowd of an estimated
2;/2 million to .3 million, with a
smile and a wave of the hand.
About 500,000 Red G u a r d s
cheered, raising high their right
hands which held red vinyl cov-
ered books on "Quotations From

"Our great motherland," Lin de-
clared, "has never been so pros-
perous and so full of vigor. Our
national defense has never been
so strong."
The 17 years that have elapsed
since the founding of Communist
China, Lin continued, "have been
no ordinary years. They were years
which have witnessed earthshak-
ing changes in China . . . earth-
shaking changes in the world as

1,600 foreign guests from 70 coun-
tries and regions, some of whom
were given the privilege to address
the gathering. So did representa-

peasants, the army and minority
nationalities. All supported Mao's
Lin openly accused the Soviet
Communist party leadership of
"colluding and actively plotting
peace talk swindles" on Viet Nam
with the United States. The pur-
pose, he said, is to stamp out the
"ranging flames of the Vietnamese
people's national revolutionary
struggles against U.S. aggression."
Lin's remarks against the Soviet
Union at Oct. 1 festivities were the
first by Chinese leaders on such
an important occasion.
