"There is only one thing that is holding them back. And that thing is the system of white su- premacy.

That thing is fear a fear that grips the Negro in America to his very bones, not only in Missis- sippi, but in every section this country, because every inch of the country is controlled by the system of white suprema- cy." Meredith recalled that he was j shot on the second day of his march "but as you can see here, that'didn't end a thing." Meredith began the trek June 5 at Memphis, Tenn., 225 miles north of Jackson.

The analysts reported evi- dence that Viet Cong morale has become fragile. They said there were signs that the com- bat effectiveness of some Com- munist units had declined.

Emphysema Tied To Smoking In Chicago Tests CHICAGO (AP) Emphy- sema, a lung disease with a death rate increasing faster in the United. States than that of any other single disease, has been produced experimentally in cigarette-smoking dogs, a medical research team reported today. At two smoking sessions dai- ly, for more than a year, the dogs inhaled cigarette smoke through hollow plastic tubes inserted in their windpipes. In a report to the general sci- entific session of the annual meeting of the American Medi- cal Association, the researchers said: "The inhalation of smoke di- rectly from cigarettes by dogs causes destruction of lung tissue indistinguishable pathologically from that found in human em- physema."

It turned out, the blind was leading the blind. _ McAdams' dog, Dell, was guiding him through downtown Detroit streets on a rainy April day when he sensed inde- cision on the dog's part. A veterinarian discovered that Dell, a 7-year-old Dober- man Pinscher, was as blind as her master and had been leading him "on instinct and guts alone." g Dell had cataracts, a malady common to both humans and dogs. The lenses of her eyes were so fogged she barely _. could distinguish light from darkness. Fortunately dogs have a second set of lenses, though an E operation to remove the defective set costs S350. And no one 3 could promise McAdams what the results of the operation would be. McAdams had trained Dell since she was a puppy. He felt he just couldn't let her down. A short-wave radio oper- E ator, McAdams told other hams about his and Dell's plight. E The operation money rolled in and there was transportation 'to take Dell to a clinic. Two weeks ago Dr. William Magrane of Mishawaka, Ind., removed Dell's clouded lenses. Thursday the stitches E inside her eyelids were removed.

"I'm not ashamed of it, I wish I was." He went on to say he accepted Klein's "hospitality" and was "glad to have a'place to stay." Dodd denied he ever delivered any speeches written by Klein and testified a 1964 trip he made to Germany was to conduct an investigation for the Senate In- ternal Security Subcommittee not to help Klein hang onto clients there. He testified the only German official he recalled discussing Klein with on his 1964 trip was former Chancellor Konrad Ade- nauer and he said it was Adenauer who brought .up the subject. The senator was bitter in his denunciation of former em' ployes who removed thousands of documents from his files and turned over copies to columnists who used them for a series of columns accusing the senator of misconduct. He referred specifically to James P. Boyd, Jr., his 'former administrative assistant, and Michael O'Hare, his former of- fice of them test- ified against his earlier in the hearings. "They were robbing me blind, and never had the manhood to come and tell me if they were Dodd said. senator said that in Jan- Congress, it's real significance lies in its triggering response among Negroes in Mississippi. Today's Negroes are not con- cerned about legislation. They talk about bread on the table, money in their pockets, and Ne- gro officeholders in the towns and counties. The march emphasized deep- ening resentment of what is considered by some Negro leiad- ers to be inaction by the federal government and particularly President Johnson in imple- menting the major civil rights laws enacted in the past two years. The man who started the marathon march, James H. Meredith, said he had set out to p Negroes overcome their fears. Perhaps he did to -some extent. The march disclosed a new mood of belligerence among Negroes, a growing frustration over conditions and widespread rejection of nonviolence. Devel- opments during the long, tor- tuous trek over miles of Missis- sippi 'highways and streets indi- cated that many Negroes have indeed lost their fears of repris- als for civil rights activities.

'Her courage and initiative saved our baby's says the husband of a young mother who managed to keep her 2-month- old baby and herself alive for two days in a plane wreckage on a cold, snowy mountain.

Mrs. Little's father and step- mother died -in the crash on the snow-covered side of Mt. St. Helens. Mrs. Little suffered a broken back, broken ribs, a collapsed lung and frostbitten feet. Doctors reported she was rest- ing comfortably in a hospital today. Her daughter has only a bruised forehead. Little said his wife, who was rescued Saturday, recalled the ordeal clearly. It began when Mrs. Little and her daughter were picked up in a rented plane by her father, Grant Erickson, 49, an execu- tive of a radio supply company in 'Sioux Falls., S.V., and his wife. They planned to fly to Nor- walk, Calif., for the golden wed- ding anniversary of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Erickson. "I was supposed to go with Little said.
