Instead he "lies in a hospital bed. his mind a muddle of confused thoughts. Steve was the victim of a nightmarish tragedy which took the lives of his mother and three little sisters. Police said the mother, Kath- erine Martin, a winsome 28- year-old, drenched Steve and the three girls with gasoline Saturday night, doused the flu- id over her own body and struck a match. All four were turned into human torches. Mrs. Martin and Jean, 6, Su- san, 3, and Sarah, 18 months, were killed. But Steve made a dash across the front yard, his flesh aflame, and a neighbor spotted him. The neighbor, W. F. Wolfe, threw him to the ground and extinguished the flames with a blanket. The tragedy shocked the mid- dle class neighborhood in the industrial suburb of Chamblee where the Martins lived. Little Steve mumbled from his hospital bed that his moth- er kept saying, "I've got to do it; I've got to do as she poured gasoline on the children and lighled the matches to their bodies late Saturday night. Steve was in critical condi- tion at Georgia Baptist Hospi- tal with burns over 40 per cent of his body. President, Guests End Playful Time at Ranch JOHNSON CITY. Tex. (UPI) Johnson returned to the formalities of office today that ended a relaxed ranch country weekend wh ch ranged from moments of sentiment to hilarity. the food stamp program.

Disturbance Is Halted by Police NEW YORK (UPI) Steel- helmeted police broke up a near-riot between feuding Ne- groes and Puerto Ricans in Manhattan's Lower East Side Sunday night and fired shots at fire bomb throwers. Three Molotov cocktails were tossed at a Negro-occupied tene- ment and two Puerto Ricans were arrested on arson charges The same street had been the scene of similar disorders early Sunday morning, and police said they evidently were sparked by the fatal shooting late Saturday night of a Puerto Rican, allegedly by a Negro. The arrest of the two Puerto Ricans brought to 24 the num- ber of persons taken into cus- tody since the disorders broke out several hours after the fatal shooting of Robert Rojas, 35. James Ballinger, a 23-year- old Negro, was arrested on homicide charges in the shoot- ing which occurred as Rojas was walking near his home. The Puerto Rican was rushed to Bellevue Hospital but was dead on arrival. said he was thinking of staying at his LBJ ranch near here for "a couple of days" more. Saturday night, Johnson was honored by more than of his neighbors at a barbecue celebrating his 56th birthday, which was Thursday. He made a speech forecasting a "long and rough" election campaign and keyed largely to a defense of his administration's policies in Viet Nam and other crisis areas. But Sunday, from a warm, personal standpoint, brought the highlight of the weekend when President and Mrs. Johnson took Humphrey, his wife and their 16-year-old son, Douglas, for a 75-minute tour of the ranch. A score of cameramen and reporters trailed along as the President and his running mate shouted "yahoo" and chased cattle for the photographers. During one such adventure. Humphrey soiled his shoe and quipped: "Mr. Prsident, I just stepped on the Republican platform." Johnson laughed uproariously. He also thought of barring pub- lication of the remark, saying he didn't want to force an an- swer from the GOP national Chairman Dean Burch. "On the other hand, let's see what he Johnson added.
