"Although this presence has
caused many consequences," the
manifesto said, "it is still better
than a Viet Cong regime."
Attempt To Woo Americans R
These and other signs of mod-

neutralism, developed in an ap-
parent effort of the politically r fiv
conscious Buddhist minority to
woo American support for their
efforts to speed restoration of PAY
There was little doubt that the
United States would continue to

yesterday his request that Presi-

NEW YORK ()-James H.'
Meredith announced yesterday
that, his doctor permitting, he
will resume his Mississippi "march
against fear" June 16.
"I will continue this mission and
arrive in Jackson," he said, in
reference to his planned 225-mile
march from Memphis, Tenn., to
Jackson, Miss. It was interrupted
Monday when he suffered super-
ficial wounds from a shotgun.
In his prepared statement,
Meredith also said:
"I am pleased that there are
others who share my desire to
assist registration of new voters
"On our walk, we discovered
much enthusiasm and hundreds
of Mississippians and I would like
to continue the walk so that I
may personally talk withmany
more registered voters.
"It is my belief from the warm
reception received along the road,
both in Tennessee and Mississippi,
that my walk may have done
something to alleviate the heavy
burden of fear which rests upon
Meanwhile in Mississippi, Negro
volunteers tramped south along
a Mississippi highway yesterday
on their symbolic Meredith march.
One man collapsed and died.
About 300 state and county
police, leapfrogging busily along
the line, mounted guard.
Civil rights leaders were repeat-
edly emphasizing that all who join
the long trek must accept non-
violence as the rule of conduct-
at least for the duration.
No Outing for Nuts
"This is not an outing for nuts,
nor is it a pleasure cruise for
some cats who like to get their
kicks," Hoseq Williams of the
Southern Christian Leadership
Conference told 50 volunteers
picked up in Memphis.
The sound of several gunshots
caused a brief flurry as the column
neared Senatobia, eight miles
north of here.
Highway patrolmen hustled into
a field to investigate. They said
the shots were fired by five white
boys, aged 7 to 12, who were

Meredith's statement in New
York Wednesday that he would
return to Mississippi armed, if
necessary, was a brisk topic among
Negroes crowded along the high-
way north of Senatobia, waiting
for the day's march to start.
