Prompt Protests Here
Pickets from several East Coast cities were scheduled to
demonstrate here today against what they feel is Justice De
partment inaction concerning the cases of two integrationist
demonstrators jailed in Baton Rouge, La.
Two of about 40 college students were arrested this morn
ing while walking from Baltimore to participate in the demon-
stration at the Justice Depart
ment here. Police said they
tyere walking on the pavement
of U. S. Route 1 in Beltsville
After being warned to walk on
the shoulder.'
Police Pvt. R. A. Darling of
Prince Oeorges County identi
fied the pair as Penelope R.
Patch, 18, of Englewood. N. J.,
and Colston R. Stewart 111, 18,
of the 1700 block of Upshur
street N.W. Both said they
were students at Swarthmore
College.
• They were arrested under a
State law on disturbing the
peace “by obstructing or hin
dering the free passage of per
sons passing along” a public:
highway, police said. Miss J
Pstch was released on SIOO
borfd. A spokesman for the
sfrrdent group said bond would

Equality, according to Julius
Jobson, head of the Washing

Last night, three young men
who said they are Howard Uni
versity students, were evicted,
via wheelchairs from the Jus
tice Department building where ■
they said they went in an at
tempt to see Attorney General
Kennedy about the Baton
Rouge cases.
Stokely Carmichael, 21, one
of the group, said they refused
to leave the building until 9
p.m., when some guards and
men in civilian clothes lifted
them into wheelchairs and
rolled them out of the building.
The other students identified

there were no grounds for Fed

told they would have to wait

Liberal Book
Attacked by
Republicans
By the Associated Press
Republicans in Congress
have blasted a book published
yesterday as a threat to United
States security.
“This Democratic-sponsored
book,” said Senator Dirksen of
Illinois, “could well be renamed
‘Our American Munich.’”
The same suggestion came
from Senator Morton. Repub
lican of Kentucky, who said in
a Senate speech that Congress
should repudiate the book to let
the world know it “does not
represent the thinking of the
vast majority of Congress. Dem
ocrats or Republicans."
The volume that stirred up
the G. O. P. storm was de
scribed by a Republican Na
tional Committee research
paper as a series of essays by
consultants to a group of Dem
ocratic Congressmen and for
mer Congressmen.
The book is called "The Lib
eral Papers" and it contains an
introduction written by Repre
sentative Roosevelt, Democrat
of California, one of the leaders
in setting up the "Liberal Proj
ect,” a study group formed by
several House Democrats in
1959.
Some of these Democrats
have disavowed any connec
tion with the project. Some oth
ers, including Mr. Roosevelt, de
clined comment.
The Republican critics, who
also included Representative
Halleck of Indiana, the House
G. O. P. leader, and Senator
Goldwater of Arizona, said they
were more fearful of the book’s
impact on other countries than
on Americans.
“The real menace,” said Mr.
Halleck, "is that it could lead
not only our allies but the
Communist world to doubt that
we in America will stand firm,
or believe that any position
that America takes means any
thing.”
Senator Halleck and Senator
Dirksen devoted their regular
weekly news conference yester
day to denouncing what they
described as this “astounding”
and “incredible” book.

Objects in Sea
Spur Search
For Airliner
MANILA, Mar. 17 (AP).—
Search planes reported sight
ing five partially submerged
objects in the Western Pacific
today along the scheduled
route of a chartered airliner
that vanished with 107 persons
aboard. No persons were seen
in the immediate vicinity.
The United States destroyer
Brister was dispatched to de
termine what the objects are.
The joint rescue center at
Agana, Guam, said the Brister
is expected to reach the area
at dawn tomorrow. A KC-97
plane was ordered to circle
above the objects until the
Brister arrives.
Photographic Squadron 61 at
Guam sent a Sky Warrior jet
to photograph the objects from
the air in hopes that the pic
tures might reveal some identi
cation and possibly furnish a
clue to the fate of the four
engine Super-Constellation of
the Flying Tiger Line.
Hopes Grow Slimmer
A United States Air Force
spokesman declared earlier
that "chances are getting slim
mer every minute” that any of
the 107 aboard the missing
plane would be found alive. The
plane was presumed to have
crashed or ditched after leav
ing Guam Thursday night for
a 1,600-mile hop to Clark Air
Force Base near Manila.
(Investigators gathered at
the Burbank, Calif., headquar
ters of the Flying Tiger Line
to re-fly the airliner’s route in
the hope of finding some clue
to its disappearance. Sabotage
has been hinted and so has
the possibility that the plane
was hijacked. Another question
was a possible link with the
crash earlier Thursday of a
Flying Tiger cargo plane in
Alaska.)
The propeller-driven air
liner, with a crew of 11 Ameri
cans, left Travis Air Force Base
in Northern California Tues
day carrying 93 United States
Army men and three South
Viet Namese bound for South
Viet Nam. The Army men re
portedly were to join the
United States forces bolstering
the South Viet Nam govern
ment’s fight against the Com
munist Viet Cong guerrillas.
Made Three Stops
The plane made scheduled
refueling and service stops at
Hawaii, Wake Island and Guam.
It was last heard from 270
miles west of Guam, when the
pilot radioed a routine mes
sage without a hint of trouble.
After fruitless flights yester
day and last night, officials
tripled the search area and
pressed nearly 100 planes and
nine ships into systematic criss
crossing of more than 250,000
square miles of calm Pacific
waters.
More than 50 planes from
United States Air Force and
naval installations in the
Philippines and 40 more from
United States bases on Guam
scoured almost every conceiv
able path the pilot of the miss
ing plane might have taken.
Each plane was assigned a
1 60-square-mile search area. The
I Philippine-based planes cov
ered an ocean rectangle 700
miles long and 180 miles wide
along the airliner’s scheduled
route, and the planes and ships
from Guam scoured a compar
able area.

President Hears Irish
Claim First on 'Troika'
President Kennedy, whose
Irish ancestry is beyond dispute,
marked St. Patrick’s Day this
morning by hearing the Irish
Ambassador claim that the
Irish had a “troika” long before
the Russians developed one of
their own.
Ambassador Thomas J. Kier
nan noted that the Russians
boast of having invented or dis
covered practically everything.
He said, however, that the
shamrock flourished long before
the Russians and that in one
respect it is “our troika.”
A troika is a three-horse
Russian sleigh and the term
has been widely used to describe
any group run by three chair
men.

OLDEST AUDIBLE SATELLITE
STARTS TO SHOW ITS 4 YEARS
FORT MONMOUTH, N. J. (AP).—Vanguard I com
pletes its fourth year in orbit today.
The world's oldest audible satellite is beginning to
feel its years. It doesn’t talk as loud or spin aS much f
as it used to. 1
The Army Astro-Observation Center here reports
signals have grown fainter and don’t come through on
every orbit.
The spin has slowed from three revolutions per
second to one every 23 seconds. Scientists blame the "
damping effect of the earth’s magnetic field for the'
slowdown.
One thing the voyager doesn’t lack is miles. The
latest log shows 543,195,264 miles in 15,712 orbits. It
still whirls 400-1,000 miles above the earth.
The 6-4-inch, 2*/2-pound “grapefruit” followed the'
space trail blazed by Russia's Sputnik I and II and the 3
United States Explorer I. But these have long been silent.

St. Patrick’s Day” Ambassador
Kiernan presented shamrocks
, to Mr. Kennedy. He said they
were flown over from the old
sod.
“Why don’t you make a little
speech,” Mr. Kennedy suggested
as reporters and photographers
surrounded them. “Tell how
i fortunate it is to be Irish.”,
Mr. Kennedy wore a green tie
with a shamrock design. So
did Democratic Representatives
: Kirwan of Ohio and Fogarty of
Rhode Island, who accompanied
the Ambassador to the Presi
dent’s office. Mr. Kennedy
walked with Ambassador Kier

House offices and then told
reporters he planned to cele

the day.
SATELLITES
Continued From Page A-l
said recently the Russians do
not have an anti-missile sys
tem even as advanced as the
Nike Zeus.
The Soviet Prime Minister
boasted that United States ra
dar stations, geared to detect
Russian missiles aimed at the
United States across the North
Pole, have lost their importance
because, he said, "the new
global rockets can fly around
the world in any direction and
strike a blow at any set tar
gets.’’
What he meant was that
Russian missiles fired east or
west, rather than over the
North Pole, for example, could
i avoid detection by radar sta
: tions of the Ballistic Missile
i Early Warning System. Two
BMEWS stations now are in
operation, with a third power
ful radar site due to come into
use later.
The BMEWS would be ex
l pected to give this country
about 15 minutes warning of q
missile onslaught.
The Midas system, using in
fra-red sensors that would de
tect the heat from rocket ex
haust right after blastoff, is
calculated to double the warn
ing time.
The plan is to launch six or
eight Midas satellites into a
polar orbit several hundred
miles high. Spaced about the
globe in a north-south path,
with the earth rotating below,
these satellites would be able to
scan the entire surface con
stantly.
Therefore, it probably Wouldn’t
wouldn’t matter from which
points or in which direction!
