• Playoffs After Violence

Public School Officials Confer Monday;
Negroes Hit 'Animal-Like Behavior'
i
Catholic high schools in the District have suspended partic
ipation in football and basketball playoffs with public schools
as an aftermath of Thanksgiving Day’s brawling at D. C.
] Stadium.
Msgr. John S. Spence, director of education for the Arch
diocese of Washington, announced the suspension after a
meeting yesterday of Catholic
j school officials.
At least 40 persons were in
. jured in savage fighting follow
! ing St. John’s College High
1 School’s 20 to 7 defeat of East
ern High School at the stadium.
’ Fourteen persons were arrested.
; Meanwhile, public school of
ficials will confer with Carl F.
j Hansen, superintendent, at
! 9 p.m. Monday on the causes
. of the disorder and methods
to employ to avoid such inci
dents in the future.
Msgr. Spence, in announcing
' the moratorium, said in a
■ statement that “after careful!
examination of the disturbing
and disappointing events at
! tendant to Thursday’s cham
pionship game, we find no evi
dence to blame the authorities
or the players of St. John’s
High School for any of the
i happenings.
| “Likewise, there is no evi
dence to point accusingly to be
public school system or even
to Eastern High School as such
for what occurred. The police
likewise did all in their power
to isolate and end the out
rages.”
90 Per Cent Seen Innocent
And he added, “Let us not
forget that at least 90 per cent
of those in attendance were
entirely aloof from the extreme
hoodlumism that was dis
played.”
The Monsignor set no date
for the resumption of play be
tween Catholic and public
schools in the city, but added
that he was hopeful that some
thing could be worked out.
Dr. Hansen said the Mon
signor’s statement was "very
thoughtful, well worked out
and one that shows great depth
of understanding.” He agreed
with the decision for a playoff
moratorium.
Dr. Hansen called the meet
ing for Monday after sending
directives to school officials
and to tne student council of
: each high school.
He asked for their opinions
] on the causes of the brawling
and ways to prevent such in
’ cidents in the future. He also
asked the councils if they be
i lieve the games should be con
’ | tinued in the future.
1 Police officials reported that
’ the fights that erupted after
the game did not appear to be
a racial incident. However,
they said most of the fighting,

149 Savings Groups
Okayed for Insurance
BALTIMORE, Nov. 24 <AP».
—Directors of Maryland’s new
State-sponsored system for in
suring deposits have approved
applications of 149 savings and
loan associations.
Applications for insurance
' from 81 associatiqns were re
jected by the board, according
[ i to Richard W. Case, chairman.
The Maryland Savings-Share
Insurance Corp, was set up last
February by the General As
i sembly. The privately financed
I corporation will insure deposits
up to $20,000 in associations
'chartered by the State.
The associations which ap
‘ plied for membership included
most of the State-chartered
. building and loan firms.
Deposits in the 149 firms ac
t cepted total about SIOB million.
Letters were mailed to these
s firms last night notifying them
> of their acceptance.
) The Savings-Share Insurance
i Corp, is expected to begin busi
i ness early next month. At least
; 25 associations with $25 million
• in deposits must accept mem
bership before the corporation
said the canine teams also
“prevented more serious blood
, shed, that may have led to a
' full-scale riot.”
As it was, more than 40 per
sons reported being injured in
scores of savage brawls and
street fights that erupted as
more than 50,000 football fans
' poured out of the stadium.
• Cries of indignation came
■ from thousands of Metropolitan
r Area residents who heard or
read about the post-game dis
! orders.
Many of those who called
The Star termed the conduct
• of the brawlers “disgraceful.”
1 Some callers also criticized the
way police handled the situa-
■ tion. The most frequent com
. plaint was that the police did
! >not “turn the dogs loose” on
! the violent crowd.
The police answer to these
I complaints was surprising to
• many.

II leashed, their effectiveness
.Practically all of St. John’s
students are white and Eastern
is predominantly Negro.
While the two school leaders
agreed on a moratorium, strong
er reaction to the incident was
voiced by Walter N. Tobriner.
president of the Board of Com
missioners.
He said: “There should be a
lapse of at least a year until
people learn to behave. I don’t
think we can stand this kind of
thing again. It’s not good for
the city, not good for sports
and not good for the schools.”
Francis J. Kane, chairman
of the Armory Board, which
has charge of the stadium,!
agreed with Mr. Tobriner.
Negro community leaders—
mainly clergymen signed a
statement saying they were
"disturbed by the irresponsible
behavior exhibited by some of
the persons attending” the
game.
"In this Instance, as in so
many things of life, a few per
sons led a crowd to animal-like
behavior.”
Search Favored
Their statement continued:
“One reaction to this incident
is to urge discontinuing the
game. This may or may not
be "the answer. Other alterna
tives must be explored before
a final determination is made.”
They went on: “Aspects of
Thursday’s fracas reflect omi
nous overtones and mirror the
challenge of much of Amer
ica's unfinished business—full
participation in all aspects of
community life and the exer-i
cisirig of total responsibility in
community affairs.”
There is increased evidence
that the instigators were non-]
students, according to the
school leaders.
Mr. Tobriner has received a
full report from the Police De
partment on the fighting, but
has declined to make the re
port public.
The fighting started after a
player for Eastern, Calvin Har
ris, was ejected from the game
in the last quarter, but rushed
back on the field and struck
> out at several St. John's players.
The youth was subdued by
his own team and removed from
the field.
When the game ended, sev
eral thousand fans poured from
the Eastern side of the stadium
and rushed toward the section
,of St. John’s rooters. Fights
broke out in the stadium and
spilled out onto the streets.

State law.
Associations which join will
be required to deposit with the
corporation 1 per cent of their
outstanding free-share ac

must be paid by each associa
tion within 12 months after it
becomes a member.
SB,OOO in Loot

WINCHESTER, Va., Nov. 24
(AP).—Thieves looted a Win

Thursday.
Police said the burglary was
at the home of Mr. and Mrs

for only four hours between 4
and 8 p. m.
Stolen were a platinum ring,
a costly suitcase, mink coat,

would have been severely lim
ited and it could have been a
real tragedy,” replied the offi
cer who was in charge of the
three Canine Corps teams at
the game, Corpl. Drass.
““We train the dogs to con
; trol crowds at the end of a
leash,” Corpl. Drass said. "They
also are trained to seek and
hold suspected criminals when
released from their leash.”
When a dog is -released, usu
ally only if all other means of
capture have failed, “the dog
goes after only one person,
usually the first one he sees
running,” Corpl. Drass said.
A police dog easily could have
gone after a law-abiding citi
zen who was running, only to
get away from the crowd of
brawlers, the corporal said.
“I’m not trying to justify or
minimize the actions of the
street fighters,” Corpl. Drass
said, “but after all, we were just
dealing with rowdy kids at that
game, not suspected criminals.”
Men Overpower
And Lock Two
Guards in Cell
Five felony suspects over
powered two guards and a ma
tron and escaped from the
Alexandria city jail last night.
Two of the escapees were
awaiting grand jury action on
narcotics charges. The others
j were jailed on felonious as
sault. grand larceny and forgery
charges. All were described by
police as dangerous.
The break was apparently
well planned, police said. It
followed an attempt by two
guards, Douglas Hewitt and
Theodore E. Wood, to break up
a fake fight among three of
the prisoners in their second
floor cell. The guards were
overpowered by the three men
who took their jail keys and
locked them In the cell. The
two then released two other
prisoners from their cells on
the third floor.
Matron Tied Up
!
As they fled downstairs, the
prisoners encountered a ma
tron, Helen Allen. They tied
her with towels and sheets and
escaped. .She worked herself
free within minutes and called
the police.
Police said that a 13-State
alarm has been sent out for
the fugitives. Although the
men took the car keys of one
of the guards, they fled on
foot, police said.
They wore brown prison uni
forms with “City Jjdl” printed
on the shirts and trousers. One
man had a civilian jacket which
the jailer had given him to
clean, police said.
Inmate Injured
Another inmate was slightly
injured when he tried to block
the fugitives from escaping,
police said.
One of the fugitives re
portedly made a telephone call
: from Philadelphia to Alexan
dria this morning, police said.
Philadelphia police have been
asked to investigate the call.
Fugitives’ Names
The names and descriptions
of the escapees, all white and
wearing dark slacks or khaki,
are:
