Corona Daily Independent (Newspaper) - August 11, 1967, Corona, California about boosting Negro Guard members .By WALTEB R. wears and PHIL KEIF WASIBNGTON (AP) - A presidential panel's bid to boost thé number of Negro National Guardmen is drawing mixed reaction on Capdtol Hill while generating doubts at the Pentagon and among Guard officials. Sen. Fred R. Harris, a member of the President's Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, which , reconwrtended Thursday gating more Negroes Jhto the Guard, said that would make the Guard more «ffective in dealing with ghetto riots. But a Soruthem Republican protested the move'iu amount ing to recruiting Guardmen "from a. purely racial standpoint." "What you're saying," added Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carblina in an interview, "is that you're going to put more Negroes in the National Guard just to have Nc-gro'es."

The belligerent notes were sounded as Yugoslav President Tito opened talks in Cairo with Nasser in an effort to sell the Egyptian leader a peace formula for the Middle East.

Heikal, generally regai-ded as Nasser's spokesman, said the first task facing Egypt is "restoration, of the army to its fighting readiness." Hussedn declared in Amman that Jordan "is determined to die" before it surrenders the Arab sector of Jerusalem to Idsrael. "We are determined not to cede any part of our beloved land nor any stone of our sacred Jerusalem," Hassein said in a speech Thursday on - the. eve of the 15th^ anniversary of his becoming king. Tito planned to spend three days conferring with Nasser, an old personal friend and associate in.the nonaligned movement. Informants said Tito has evolved a plan calling for Israeli withdrawal from territory wrested fiom the Arabs in the June war in return for gtjarantees by the big powers of the U.N. Security Council of Israel's prewar borders. But the Israelis have insisted they wUl not give up the Old City of Jerusalem and have given no indication they would consider any international guarantees sufficient to protect them. a] Guard Association questioned whether Guard units effectively could recruit more Neferoes. "How can you beat the bushes when you have a waiting list?" Maj. Gen. James F. Cantwell told a newsman. President John^ told Defense Secretao' Robert S. Mc- It Nanlarà to give the commission's recomrtiendations immediate attention. The Pentagon reported later that Mc-Namara had the panel's report and was studying it. But an officer observed: "Th# secretary of defense does not have powers of conscription to make Negroes join the Guard." He said the National Guard has had an active campaign the last three years to recruit Negroes and "they just don't want to belong." Guard representatives hav^fe gone before Negro groups, civic organizations and colleges soliciting Negro enlistments without success, a spokesman said. Members of the advisory panel siaid they studied statistics showing Negro Guard-membership ranged from zero in North Dakota and New Hampshire to a high^of 29.07 in the District of Columbia — which alone had a Negro Guard membership percentage in double figures, but also has a 63 per cent Negro population.

' " . ' Ambassador is rushing back to Geneva as nuclear proliferation pact looms WASHINGTON (AP)—Ambassador William Foster dis-disclosed today that he is rushing back to Greneva in expectation of a prompt agreement with Russia on a draft of a nuclear nonproliferation treaty and its presentation promptly to an 18-nation disarmament conference. Foster conferred with Presi dent Johnsion about the matter this morning. He had come in from Geneva Wednesday to testify in Congress on appropriations and expected to stay for some time. But word came through, he told reporters, that the Soviet Union now is ready to agree on a draft-treaty - although there fill be one major blank, in it. This blank is on tSie issues ., of inspection and safeguards. The treaty and the discussions surrounding it have been a matter of negotiations for months. Laying a draft before the disarmament Commission would give various other nations a chance to consider The Teen Post must move By BETTE REINCKE Thè biggest 'if' in the con-Anued operatiion of Corona's only independent yoiith ree-reaitlon center. Teen Post, ia that of its loca>tion. Presently housed in a redevelopment agency - owned building at 316 South Main, the center will have to move this fall atong with all businesses locàted in the blodc between Third and Fourth Streeits. Originally soheduled, to mbve Sept. 1, local redevelopment agency officials now say snags in the sale of other btUldlngis in thait block could delay action another month. They have allowed the young people rent free use of the building. Meanwhile, yorungsters are continuing to furnish and operate the "Teen Post, using games and equipment donated by iwivate citizens. Although the youth center was started after federid funds for the program ran out, two young people working in itihe federal Summer Crash program of the Office of Economic Opportunity halve been responsible for setting up the Teen Post. Rudy Felipe and Lilliart Tovar have devoted time and work feo the project since its inception in July and, through them, other local youngsters have become equally interesited in madn-tadniing It. When they are forced to move, they want to go into permanent quarters but Felipe said today, "That's awfully hard to find in Corona." He has investigated nearly every empty building in the city; he s'aid, but most have had drawbacks of! oiie sort or another "mainly financial." Frank Martinez, director of the ooimty - wide Neighborhood Youth Corps, another branch of the OEO, saiid the best solution would be a service.club which would sponsor the Teen Post arid help take over some of the financial responsibility. If such a club could be found, .an employe of the OEO could Conceivably supervise the running of the center, he said. Felipe's employment with the fedeijal program is over Sept. 1 when the Sifmmer Crash program ends. He said he Intends to continue Learn to walk as brothers, or die together like fools SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Dr. ^lartin Luther King saysJ^es-ident Johnson has demonstrated "he is more interested in winning the war in Vietnam than in winning the war on poverty here at home." Dr. King, a Baptist minister who heads th'e Southern Christian Leadership Congress, spoke Thursday before the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, a Negro organization. Despite accomplishments since 1776, the people of the United States have not yet learned "the simple art of walking the earth together as brothers," he said. "If we don't learn to walk together as brothers and sisters, then we are all going to perish tpgether as fools," the Nobel prize winner continued. Urging the end of the war in Vietnam, he said: "I call upon President Johnson to say to the nation that we've made a mistake in Vietnam. to work with the Teen Post after that date but "it'll only be unofficially then," iie added. 100-bed home I planned here Douglas H. Yarbrough, a Fullerton contractor, annoimc-ed today that he will construct a 100-bed convalescent home in Corona. Yarbrough said that the project will be situated on Yorba west of Sherman and will extend to about 200 feet of Sixth. The site contains four acres, he said. Yarbrough said that he planned to file a request for a conditional use permit with the city planning staff today. The staff said late this forenoon that the request had not been filed, but Yarbrou,gh has discussed the project with them. The builder, who constructed Yorba Terrace Apartm^ts at Tenth and Sherman here said the project is estimated at about $500,000. He said that he plans to begirt construction in ' 90 days and wants to open the home to occupants in about seven months. Yarbrough said that the conditional use permit request will come before the planning commission on Aug. 28. The site now is zoned multiple family residential and restricted commercial. The hluüder said the home will contain two wards, but* the balance of thö building— about 85 per cent—will be devoted to two-bed rooms. Each room will have a private bath he said, and will be fully carpeted. Yarbrough indicated that the home will apply for Medicare approval at the proper time. terms on which tlie two principal world powers have a-greed. And this would be; a step toward eventual ^j'resentation of the treaty to the United Nations General Assembly for signature by niember countries. Foster now pljms to be back in Geneva by Sunday noon to confer with his opposite number in the Russian delegation. Ambassador Alexei .Roschin. But this conference appeared to be pretty much in the nature of a formality so far as early submission of a draft treat>> to the commission is concerned. "We are in the process of the final solution of the problem," Foster said. Foster said that U.S. allies have kept abreast of the devel opments and discussions "and we had a green light to take this type of agreement" to the disarmament commission. Foster told reporters under questioning he thought there was very little chance that the two other nuclear powers, Red China and France, would go along with the projected treaty draft. But he said he doubted that they would share their nuclear weapons with other countries. On the matter of the blank ' provision on inspection and assurances, Foster said that he hopes and believes this can be filled in before a treaty goes to the U.N. General Assembly. It was regarded as too complicated to include In the upcoiping draft at this time, he said.' But there will be continued discussions on it, he said. Consulting Coronans guy.
