From AP and UPI
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.-Hoping to
avoid more violence, city officials
agreed yesterday to let black ministers
and black volunteers replace riot-
equipped police who have been
patrolling Alton Park, a predominantly
black area that has been the site of
racial disturbances.
Fire and Police Commissioner
Walter Smart agreed to a proposal by
civil rights leader the Rev Jesse
Jackson, who told an overflow crowd at
Westside Baptist Church, "We don't
want them (the police) to have an ex-
cuse to come in here trigger-happy."
POLICE SET UP a mobile command
post about five blocks from the area
where officers stood ready to move in.
Police were ordered yesterday to
hold their gunfire to an "absolute
minimum" to prevent escalation of the
three days of racial strife that has
resulted in the shooting of eight
policemen and a rash of firebombings
Officials said there had been 46
arrests, 70 fire calls, and ap-
proximately $200,000 in fire damage
since trouble began Tuesday after an
all-white jury acquitted two Ku Klux
Klansmen and gave a lenient sentence
to a third for the shooting of four black

Rose also extended a dusk-to-dawn
curfew which he first imposed Thur-
sday at the urging of police.
Police Commissioner Walter Smart
told officers to take whatever action
necessary to protect themselves but
cautioned against overreaction.
"I CAN'T GIVE them specific in-
structions in this area," Smart said,
"but they have been instructed to hold
their fire to the absolute minimum

Rose of insensitivity after a local
newspaper ran a photograph of him
carrying a pistol during racial distur-
bances here.

Park. Rose said, however, that he
picked up the pistol from a policeman
wounded in the stomach during Thur-
sday night's disburbances in the areas
and returned the officer's weapon
before leaving.
John Hollowayn, member of a black
coalition and local moderator of
Operation PUSH-People United To

mayor's photograph as "the most

Tender loving care ward
You're a male patient in the cardiac intensive care unit of Victory
Hospital in Waukegan, Ill. A Playboy bunnie approaches your bed, tucks a
napkin', under your chin, and feeds you chicken Saltimbocca. The special
service is part of a gourmet food program that was pioneered eight months
ago by hospital food service director Terry Lowe. "Of course," he said, "the
cardiac patients were examined and found to be able to take any extra
excitement" the bunnies might lave caused. Chef Charlie Mays from the
Chicago Playboy Club was at the hospital with his favorite chicken recipe
and four bunnies to help serve it Tuesday. "Everyone at the hospital got the
special chicken dish," Lowe said. "This is the first time Playboy bunnies
helped serve the patients, and they were a big hit. We'll continue the
program indefinitely.
