Magen of Lower Marion shows Lt. Governor Raymond P. Shafer a flower picked from a reclaimed strip mine near Crenshaw. The mine was one of the places visited yesterday by the lieutenant governor and a group of outstanding college and high school student leaders during a four and one half day tour of the Commonwealth. Shafer, Students Visit Reclaimed Mine Site in Area DUBOIS - Lt. Gov. Raymond P. Shafer, Republican candidate for governor, visited the area yesterday as part of a four-and-a-half day tour of the slate with a group of college and high school students. Purpose of the visit in the DuBois area was to visit a strip mine and to note any difference apparent between new and old strip mining laws. Mr. Shafer arrived at the DuBois-Jefferson County Airport, and proceeded with his entourage by bus to the site of the mine, near Brockway. En route he was interviewed by the press, and said he was well-pleased with the results of his trip. He said that the students accompanying him were becoming aware of the state's assets, and with some of the problems facing the next administration. He called for passage of a $500 million land and water conservation bill now pending in the legislature, and said he is running for office on the record of (rm|ble ,, ,he arpa bul police the Republican administration^ sak) lhe silualion was brought The statewide trip was lulled undcr conlrol ickl The violence erupted along a section of Superior Avenue where Negro and White neigh-^"i1.0"15,'.3!.'^11 35 RePubllcan borhoods come together. Johnson In for Peace By DON McKEE CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Frazzled by a hectic night of tear gas and tension, the Mississippi march regroups today for new "confrontations." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said a detachment would drive 60 miles east to Philadelphia, Miss., a Ku Klux Klan - stronghold, for a rally "We will maintain the peace come hell or high water," said Gov. Paul Johnson, in urging Philadelphia residents to stay away from the rally-part of the march's effort to spur Negro voter registration. The busy schedule also called for organization of Negro boycott of downtown white merchants and a general work stoppage by Negroes in Canton, while a few continue the march toward Jackson. From Canton, the march swings south along U.S. 51, the same highway where it all was brick, and shots were fired at two policemen. Several businesses operated by white men were looted and vandalized. as non-political, and a check of students in the bus revealed several Democrats and inde student leaders One student.

If we can't go into Sowin-ski Park, then they can't come over here." The Sowinski area has been a (rouble spot before. Racial disturbances broke out there three years ago after a 15-year-old white girl was attacked by a group of Negro youths in the park. The wounded boy, 9-ycar-old Stephen Griffin, was reported in fair condition at Mt. Sinai Hospital with a bullet wound in the lower abdomen. His brother, Richard, 16, said a white man fired the shot from a passing convertible. Police Chief Richard Wagner said the Griffin boy told police he had joined a group of boys who were throwing slones at cars. The shot was fired by a man whose car was being, stoned, police said.

(AP) - Mention of Fidel Castro has been strangely missing lately in broadcasts over the government-controlled radio in Cuba. Miami monitors of Havana Radio have not heard the Cuban prime minister mentioned throughout this week. They recalled only sparse mention of him since he was reported inspecting Hurricane Alma's damage June 8. That contrasts sharply with former daily mention of Castro in newscasts and other reports. It also coincides with widespread speculation as to Castro's status. Robert McCloskey, U.S. Slate Department press officer, fanned (he conjectures by commenting on Castro's "uncharacteristic silence."
