Dirksen out of the seat and laid a wreath at the tomb of Abraham Lincoln, the first Re- roblican president. That was the most respect Ken nedy showed for a Republican lay.

Most of the resort areas nd hottis were sjnpty. James Conlisk estimated some Chicagoans glimpsed the President during his half-hour ride from O'Hare Field to down- town Chicago. The Kennedy motorcade, pulling into the city at the height of the evening rush hour, created a monumental traffic jam. The mo- :orcade was disrupted at one point by a fire truck on an emer- gency call. It plowed through the parade just after the President's car and an escorting Secret Serv- ice auto had passed. The generally warm Chicago greeting included a few hecklers, however. Along the parade route appeared what is fast becoming a ubiquitous placard along the President's campaign trail: Sweeping Injunction Protects Meredith By DON MCKEE ATLANTA, Ga.

Some 40 pickets representing the Congress of Racial Equality greeted the President as he ar- rived at his hotel. They carried signs urging a quick end to dis- crimination in federally financed housing. Without mentioning Dirksen by name, Kennedy in his brief Springfield talk chided Dirksen For his opposition to the adminis- (ration's medicare program. "One vote would have changed Kennedy declared, "and only one senator from Illinois voted for it. That's why we need Sidney Yates in the Senate." The senior senator from Illi- nois, Democrat Paul H. Douglas, voted for the medicare proposal Kennedy didn't use Dirksen's name in the speech he prepared 'or a Chicago rally Friday night. Instead, he slapped Dirksen around a bit by indirection, even hough Dirksen has given him a hand on many matters of foreign policy.

Her body was found three hours of ehe panels later in Farmington, a town few miles west of Hartford. The terrific suction through the door almost claimed another stewardess, but a male passen- ger pulled the second girl to safety. Allegheny identified the lost stewardess as Francoise de Moriere, a native of Paris, who had been employed by the air- line for 26 months. The airliner was en route from Washington, D.C., to Providence, R.I., with stops at Philadelphia and Bradley Field in nearby Windsor Locks. At Bradley Field, a radio mes- sage reporting trouble with the door was received from the piloti about p.m. Two minutes ater the pilot reported the gir had been "ejected." The crippled plane landed 3radley with the doar still at ached bilizer explosive rush of air. A piece of a serving tray pierced the leading edge of the stabilizer.

"Upon then- yielding, the enforcement of all other orders in this matter would and should be the duty of the Dis- trict Court."
