Mother of Lee Oswald Says Son Was Innocent FORT Te.x.' Perhaps one' day in the 'year 20G3, a school 'boy will open a history book and read of the Black Friday 100 years .before on which -President John gerald Kennedy was assassinat- ed. His study will-bring him to Lee Harvey Oswald, a 24-year- old malcontent, who was ac- cused of the but was .murdered before being brought to trial. If he goes deeper into the ilory, he may come across the name .of Mrs. Marguerite Clav- erie Oswald. Mrs. Oswald, a greyjhaircd, practical nurse, is the mother of Lee Harvey Os- wald. She, too, may become the subject of history because an inquiry into the nature of her son must turn to the person who .played -the greatest role in shap- ing him. That person is Mrs Oswald. "Any guilt I have for making him what he was, I will slie says. "But this is not for the assa'ssinallon. I do not care what Hie FBI says, or what1 any spe- cial .commission or. court may say.

W: Smith, D-Va., chair- nan of -the House Rules Com-- mitlee, today said he will hold earings .on the civil rights bill- 'reasonably soon in January." The announcement was a ma- or break in the deadlock over' le .legislation and could stall a- rive by the Democratic leader-' hip to take the bill away fronv he Rules Committee by a charge petition. Rep. Emanuel Celler, D-N.Y., chairman of the ;Judioiary Com- mittee which produced the aid if Smith would announce hat the hearings would not lasji onger. than two weeks the charge petition would not b4- filed. At present, added, he intends lo. go through with his plan to file .the 'petition MJonday. If 218-members sign irj the.Rules Committee would lose control of the bill and il could be scheduled for floor action. I Halleck Applauded House Republican .Leader Charles A. applauded the scheduling of hearings and predicled the. civil nights bit) ,vill be passed by the House .be- fore the end. of January. The' Indiana -congressman, who''caught.'a ride to town with 'resident Johnson said he made 'the: same prediction to he before 'he mew, of Smith's. announcement: After; the .automobile trip, the two had more time for talk ov- er breakfast at flhe-White'House, Asked'what Johnson's.reaction was, Halleck replied: going to.-say: he wouldn't like to have a. bill by the :end of this -year, -but one thing about President Johnson, he's a realist and. I'd have to say he realizes this is about the best-that.'.ca'n be done." Be Filed Mc'Cormack said Smith's action would not cause, 'tile discharge petition to be dropped. "The-. petition Witr be filed he said. Smith's announcement, re- leased by his office, noted that the Judiciary Committee took six months to write the bill aft- er Presidenl Kennedy requested il last June, and'that a final report by the .committee mem- bers, was Hied only this week. The firm setting of a hearing by Smith for earJy next year was one of the goals, of House leaders in filing a discharge petition: They, hoped the petition would serve as a prod to break Smith's long silence, on what he would do.
