Abernathy later said his report
was erroneous.j
The town of Marks is sched-
uled to be a rallying point to-
day of a portion of the Poor
Peoples March on Washington,
which Abernathy will lead.
In Washington, Secretary of
State Dean Rusk promised Poor'
People's Campaign workers to-
lay to "do everything I can to
end racial discrimination,"
The promise was elicited dur-
ing a meeting between Rusk
and a group of about 50 poor
led by Abernathy, who told
Rusk money spent in Vietnam
needs to be used to help solve
problems of the U.S. poor.
Rusk also promised to "think
seriously" about the complaints
voiced im the 60-minute ,meet
ing originally scheduled for
Monday. He said he will try to.
find answers and relay them to
Abernathy. .
The narch, major tactic in
the Poor People s Campaign
planned by the slain Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr., begins
in Memphis today with a bus
caravan heading South to Mis-
;sissippi.
aThe kickoff came last night
as King's widow and Aber-
nathy, the man who succeeded-
'King as head of the SCLC, ad-
dressed a mass rally.
Both Mrs. King and Aber-
nathy plan this morning to lay
a memorial stone on the sec-
ond floor balcony of the Lor-
raine Motel, where King was
standing when killed by a snip-
er's bullet the night of April 4.
The Rev, James Bevel, an
SCLC staff member, said yes-
terday he expected 500 to 1,000
Negroes from the Memphis
area to leave the motel at 2
p.m. today for Marks.
Bevel said the Memphis par-;

ticipants would do the actual
construction of the "City of
Hope" -- a shantytown - in
Washington which -will house
the marchers.
He said they will remain in
Marks probably until Sunday'
when they will catch a "free-
dom train" at Clarksdale, Miss.,
for Washington. The train -is
scheduled to stop in Knoxville
and Nashville in Tennessee and
Danville, Va., before reaching
Washington.
Bevel said some portions of
the scheduled Southern leg of
the march may be'changed, but
that present plans call for one
group to leave Edwards, Miss.,
.Monday by bus for Selma, Ala.
The next day, according to
those plans, a mule train will
leave Marks, travel through
Alabama, Georgia, South and'
North Carolina en route to
Washington, and avoid inter-I
state highways,
The Southern leg of thej
march is one of five scheduled}
and all are, to converge on
Washington.
Plans outlined by Bevel said
Abernathy will kick off the
mid-Western leg at a rally May
8 in Chicago and the Eastern
leg at a rallytMay 9 in Boston.
The Western 'caravan, is4
scheduled to leave east Los An-
geles May 10 and. the Rockys
Mountain caravan is to leave
Denver May 11, he said.
Bevel said he anticipated it
will take 10 to 14 days to con-
struct the shantytown in Wash-
ington, and that some of. the
Memphis workers then will re-
turn home.
Bevel's timetable listed May
30 - Memorial Day - for "the
all-out effort for the invasionj
of the war on poverty."
