Keeps 150,000 Pupils Out
CHICAGO (P)-A massive one-day boycott of classes kept thou-
sands of pupils out of Chicago's public schools yesterday in a protest
against what their leaders called "growing school segregation."
School Superintendent Benjamin C. Willis reported that 224,770
youngsters were absent ,because of the boycott or other reasons out
of a total student body of 469,733. He said the tabsentees numbered
175,018 or 51 yer cent in elementary schools and 49,752 or 38 per cent

Goldwater Hit
By Rockefeller
By The Associated Press
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller said
yesterday America should "take
the forward road" and 4ndicated
he was the man best suited to lead
the way.
Rockefeller took a collective
slap at President John F. Kenne-
dy and Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz) for their "extreme philoso-
phies" of government.
He said Kennedy favors an "all-
powerful federal government dom-
inating our lives," and he said
Goldwater believes in a govern-
ment "committed to withdraw
from free world leadership and
roll back the clock on social gains
and human progress."'
In Washington, well-heeled ad-
mirers of Sen. 'Goldwater have
shelled out $7000 for an in-depth
survey of Republican sentiment in
New Hampshire that provided
some surprises.
Least surprising of the results
was the substantial margin Gold-
water was reported to hold over
What was of more interest was
how this small slice of GOP voters
was reported to feel about the
prospective candidates' personal
lives and the issues.
The survey reported only nine
per cent of those backing Gold-
water opposed Rockefeller because
of his divorce.

meant, they said that the boycott
pulled about 150,000 children
away from their desks.
Officials of some schools said
threats kept some pupils out of
their classes.
Willis was one of the chief
targets of the demonstrations.
Some Negro critics blame him for
what they call segregation in the
550-school system. They want him
ousted. They also seek an open
enrollment policy.
Singing pickets paraded in front
of the building housing the board
of education. They sang "black
and white together." Some carried
placards reading "Down with Ben.
The boycott was directed by a
special Freedom Day committee
set up by the Coordinating Coun-
cil of Community Organizations,
an. alliance of civil-rights groups.

Rejects Bids
Of Alteration;
Navy Refuses Proposalj
For 'Off Limits' Bans
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Supporters ofj
a strong civil rights bill blocked
any moves to weaken it yesterday
and forced a key vote in the House
judiciary committee to approve it
without change.
Rebelling against both the ad-
ministration and the committee
leadership, liberal Democrats and
Republicans rebuffed efforts at
compromise and moved to bring
out the more sweeping bill.
Jubilant backers of a strong
bill said they have the votes to
advance it toward House action
and are confident they can hold
them overnight. "Compromise is
dead," one Democrat said.
But chairman Emanuel Celler
(D-NY), who promised the Ken-
nedy administration he would
fight for a compromise bill on
the theory it would be more ac-
ceptable to Congress, said he will
continue his efforts right up to
the roll call. A close vote is in

tration's recommendations.
In another rights development,
Rep. F. Edward Herbert (D-La)
said the Navy has officially re-
jected a proposal to order its men
to stop patronizing bars and other
public places that discriminate
against Negroes. The Louisiana
congressman also said the posi-
tion of the Army and the Air
Force "is consistent with the neg-
ative attitude of the Navy."
The Navy report was identified
by Hebert as an official one "sub-
mitted to the assistant secretary
of defense for manpower in a
memorandum dated July 10, 1963."

Tito Seeks
Peace Code'
By The Associated Press
President Josip Tito proposed yes-
terday a high-level meeting under
United Nations sponsorship to
draft a code for peaceful coexist-
ence among nations of the world.
He spoke to a crowded session of
the 111-nation General Assembly,
where tight United Nations secur-
ity measures kept out the general
Despite obvious displeasure with
the way New York City police
were handling security problems in
connection with his visit, Tito
wos good-humored for the most
part at a news conference that
followed his Assembly speech.
Brusque Once
He was brusque only in dealing
with a question as to when Yugo-
slavia would permit the function-
ing of opposition political parties
and release men like Milovan Djil-
as, the controversial Yugoslav
writer, from, jail.
Abusive demonstrators contin-
ued to beset Tito, but tightened
security measures kept them well
at bay. However, a public recep-
tion in his honor was cancelled.
Two incidents, a street brawl
and a hotel invasion by two anti-
Titoists, led President John F.
Kennedy to ask Secretary of State
Dean Rusk for a report on the
tense situation.
Two anti-Tito Yugoslavians
were held in $10,000 bail each dur-
ing the day for last night's inva-
sion of the hallway outside Tito's
suite. Criminal Court Judge Ben-
jamin H. Schor declared, "I want
them in jail until a certain gentle-
man leaves town.

LONDON WP) - Brushing 'aside
bitter opposition from the Labor
party, Prime Minister Lord Home
yesterday delayed the reopening
of Parliament for two weeks.
He needs the time to shed his
robes of royalty, get himself elect-
ed to a Parliament seat and to
shape his government's policy.
Home made the announcement
delaying Parliament until Nov. 12
after a meeting with Labor Party
Leader Harold Wilson.
"We think this delay is exces-
sive," Wilson told newsmen after
the meeting. Last weekend, Wilson
branded Home's plan as an im-
Out Since August
The summer recess has kept
Parliament out of session since
IAug. 2.
"To postpone further means that
vital questions that should be de-
bated will not be debated," Wil-
son asserted. "We are extremely
anxious that Parliament is not
gagged to suit the convenience of
Wilson's statement and Home's
refusal to budget set a partisan
tone that is likely to be felt when
Parliament convenes.
The . reopening of Parliament,
originally scheduled for Oct. 29,
is set by the Queen acting on the
advice of the government.
Two Reasons
Home had two major reasons for
seeking an extension of the sum-
mer recess.
First, he wants to lead the Con-
servatives in person in the House
of Commons. As a peer, he is not
allowed on the House floor. By
Nov. 12, he hopes to have shed his
title-the 14th Earl of Home-and
to have won a Commons seat in a
Aircraft Attack
American Ship
Off Cuba Coast
NEW YORK VP)-An American-
owned ship was strafed by un-
identified aircraft early yesterday
off the coast of Cuba.
Havana radio later said its air
force attacked a ship carrying
saboteurs and arms in the area.
The owners of the American
yessel, the J. Louis, reported no
casualties during an hour-long
attack, in which flares were drop-
ped to light up the target.
Havana radio broacast a com-
munique in which the name of
the ship was not given but the
same locality was mentioned. It
said, "Last night planes of the
revolutionary air force intercepted
and attacked two pirate launches
while they were disembarking
arms and infiltrating saboteurs
into Cuba on the southern coast
of Pinar del Rio.
Launching an immediate in-
vestigation, the State Department
in Washington said, "We deplore
this unprovoked attack on a ves-
sel navigating the high seas . .
We are investigating the facts of
the case to see whether a United
States protest will be made."

Secondly, his team needs time
to determine its direction. Parlia-
ment traditionally opens with a
speech from the throne setting
out government policies.
Home's course is of special sig-
nificance to his Conservative par-
ty because national elections must
be held within a year. Noting this,
Home said in a television inter-
view that "the prime minister has
the burden and responsibility of
telling Parliament what is the
policy for the last session.
