twThe peacemakers, .in' groups of
two and three, roamed through
slum areas calling for an end to
rock throwing, firebombing, loot-
ing and sniper fire. Their actions
came after a meeting of 30 black
leaders at the home of Athalie
Range, the city commissioner.
Thirteen persons have been
shot, none fatally, during the dis-
turbances, which followed reports
that a white supermarket owner
had insulted a black housewife.
"Once it started, the rioting
was continued by groups of rest-
less young people who find some
pleasure in terrorizing others."
Mrs. Range said. "No one knows
who were the leaders---if there
were any leaders."

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP-Bombs ex-
ploded yesterday at two branches of
the Bank of America, the latest in
a series of violent acts against the
nation's largest bank.
The blasts, which shattered dozens of
windows, came within seven minutes of
each other in the early morning hours
but did little structural dcmage. There
were r)r injuries.
Meanwhile, in New York, Samuel J.
Melville was sentenced to prison for at
least 13 years yesterday for the bombing
of eight government and private build-
ings during a four-month campaign of
The bearded leader of a band of youth-
ful revolutionaries, Melville was one of
five persons, two of them women, orig-
inally charged with the series of bomb-
ings, which included three Manhattan
skyscrapers as targets.
Antiwar demonstrators have described
the Bank of America as a symbol of the
"capitalist establishment." The worst in-
cident was in Isla Vista, adjacent to the
University of California's Santa Barbara
campus, where a $300,000 branch was
burned in February. A student was fa-
tally shot in another disturbance.
Bank of America officials have re-
peatedly denounced the violence, de-
scribing it as "troublesomely reminiscent"
of riots by the Brown Shirts in the late
1920s that led to the rise of Nazi Ger-
Earlier this week, two persons were ar-
rested for spray-painting the words, "Dig
Isla, Vista" on the walls of one of the
Berkeley branches which were bombed
yesterday. Police said there.-was no evi-
dence of any connection.
Each bank is about five blocks from the
University of California campus here, in
Police said a person who was awake just
before the first blast reported seeing a
van-type vehicle with two occupants
leaving the scene.
The first bomb went off at 3:52 a.m.
against the south side of the branch at
Telegraph Avenue and Russell Street. It
blew a hole six inches deep and a foot
in diameter in foundation.
At 3:59 a.m., a cigar-box mixture of
firecracker powder, wires, light bulb fil-
aments, a battery and a clock went off
against the Shattuck Avenue branch. One
window was broken in the bank.

Fred Weller. owner of the
grocery store around which the
disturbances ocurred, held a news
conference yesterday :nd claimed

turbances on the predominantly black
The announcement of the federal probe,
officials here said, was not unexpected.
There were reports more than a week ago
that federal authorities would convene
the grand jury because of state reluctance
to turn over highway patrol weapons to
FBI agents for examination.
Asst. Atty. Gen. Jerris Leonard con-
ferred with state officials recently in an
effort to obtain permission to interrogate
highway patlolmen who were on the
scene when the firing occurred. He in-
dicated later _he was unsuccessful.
Mississippi Gov. John Bell Williams
has said the officers fired in self defense
because they were drawing sniper fire.
Williams also said federal officers were
unwilling to cooperate in the state probe
of the incident, and "they must learn that
cooperation is a two-way street."
Some 200 to 300 rifle and shotgun were
fired by officers into a women's dormitory
during a confrontation with a crowd of
young blacks in front of the building. Stu-
dents vehemently denied reports of sniper
fire from the campus during the en-
When the barrage ended, the two
youths lay dead and nine were wounded.
Phillips Gibbs of Ripley, a 20-year-old
junior at the college, was cut down in
front of the dormitory. James Earl Green,
a 17-year-old high school senior, was
found dead across the street, behind the
point from which officers unleashed the
barrage. Pathologists said both died of

he would "cooperate with any duly con-
stituted investigative body."
In that statement, Williams had said
he would refuse a subpoena to testify
before any grand jury.
