East and West Berlin police also were involved in the melees. Brandt appealed for calm in a ra- dio speech. Thousands of angry West Ber- liners marched, shouted and threw stones at Soviets, Americans, the wall, East German border guards and their own police Sunday. Huge slingshots were used to hurl tear gas grenades from the Communist side. The rioting was to prote; shooting by East Berlin borrj guards of a young refugee to escape Friday.

He passed through Idlewild Airport, traveled by cab to Grand Central Terminal and sat in the i huge station's waiting room for 8Vz hours before boarding a train I for Toronto.

BACON LOS ANGELES (AP) Presi- dent Kennedy, weekending here, de- cided to take a swim in the Pa- cific and was almost swamped by a throng of admirers. Bystanders walked into the sea fully clothed as the President strode into the ocean in front of the Santa Monica beach home of his brother-in-law, Peter Lawford. It happened Sunday during the President's 33-hour visit to South- ern California, a flying trip which ended shortly before midnight when the presidential jet took off to return to Washington, D.C. j The President arrived in Wash-j ington at 8 a.m. EOT today. K had been billed as a non-poli- tical trip, although the President obviously helped Democratic Gov. Brown when Sa Ground Is Broken For Irvona Flood Control Project IRVONA Ground was broken at ceremonies here Saturday af- ternoon for a flood control project along Clearfield Creek and Witmer Run. State Forests and Waters Secretary Maurice K. Goddard hailed i the project as "one of several important flood protection measures for the people living along Clearfield Creek and its tributaries." Dr. Goddard, the principal speaker, said "It will afford valuable protection from high water throughout the borough along the two streams which run through Irvona." Completion date for the work, for which Al Monzo Construction Co. of Monroeville has been awarded the controct, is late next year. Canadian hospital. Canadian authorities said the boy's illness was virtually certain to be smallpox, although confirm- ing tests were still to be made. U.S. Public Health offi- cials said there was no doubt. It was the first confirmed case of smallpox in the United States since 1947, they said. The development left New York City with the staggering task of running down all who may have come in contact with the boy here.
