Late World Newis
By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND-GOV. JAMES A. RHODES declared last night
a state of emergency exists in Cleveland after a second night of
rioting in which a Negro man was shot to death. The killing was
the second in two nights of violent disorders in the heavily
Negro Hough area.
Rhodes, who had ordered 1,500 National Guardsmen into
Cleveland, said in Columbus that he would call up as many troops
as necessary. An aide said the action did not mean martial law
was in effect. The first units of guardsmen moved in shortly
before midnight as the violence appeared temporarily in check.
Eighteen jeeploads of soldiers were the first to begin street patrol
on foot in the area.

a betrayal of the people in the former League of Nations mandate
The court, officially known as the International Court of
Justice, dismissed a suit Monday by Ethiopia and Liberia to end
South Africa's unrestricted control of South-West Africa. The
plaintiffs charged South Africa was imposing apartheid-racial
segregation-on the primitive people of South-West Africa.
GRENADA, MISS.-CITY POLICE arrested about 50 Negro
pickets yesterday as they marched in front of a grocery store in
their "blackout" boycott campaign Pickets have been on the
march in this northern Mississippi city of 8,000 since the South-
ern Christian Leadership Conference opened a civil rights drive
last week.
Leon Hall, SCLC worker, said the officers accused the
pickets arrested of threatening Negroes who wanted to trade at
the store-located in a predominantly Negro neighborhood.

MONTGOMERY, ALA.-GOV. George C. Wallace accused
federal antipoverty officials yesterday of financing the "black
power" movement. He said a convicted Negro killer is helping
run the poverty program in one Alabama county.
REPUBLICAN U.S. SEN. Robert Griffin led Detroit Mayor
Jerome Cavanagh and was only a shade behind former Gov. G.
Mennen Williams in an election poll reported by the Detroit
News, the AP said last night.
Griffin led Cavanagh by 42 per cent to 35 per cent while
trailing Williams 43 to 42 per cent, in a statewide poll, the News
