The city found itielf with some in its kick set to work to renovate and add to the building, using regular city employes to do the job. Thus, when bad weather kept the street department off the streets, it would go to work in City Hall. The interior part of the.project has been completed; the council room, courtroom, and of- fices of the city manager and police chief all nicely paneled and slick-looking, like the city clerk's office shown above. That's Wanda Sparks, city clerk, at the far end, Peggy Gar- side, deputy, in the foreground. With spent so far, according to City Manager Curtis Sprouse, the next step is to build an addition behind the building to house the fire- men's lounge and two new jail cells. Work has just begun on this phase Final step will be to put a new alum- inum front on the building and point up .the brickwork. Sprouse won't even a completion date. Depends on how much time the city workers can spare for the ]ob, he says. (NEWS Staff White Youth Is Shot While Driving in Negro Section AUGUSTA, Ga. clamped a tight security lid on this east Georgia city today after the fatal shoot- ing of one white teen-ager and the wounding of another in a predominantly Negro section. Seventeen persons, including 14 teen-agers, both white and Negro, were arrested. Extra-duty policemen, seeking to stem a four-day tide of racial disorder, round- ed up carloads of youths "carrying knives, clubs and iron I pipes. The slaying victim was Leslie Lee Luttes, 16. He was. killed Thursday night by a pistol bullet under the -left eye and was peppered'in the back of the head-by a shot- gun charge, Luttes was sitting beside George Lewis, 15, driver of a car in which three youths were riding. 'Lewis was wounded by the shotgun fire. Eddie Gay, 16, on the back seat, escaped injury. Police said they found an air- rifle and a sack of rocks in the car, owned by Gay's father. Gay said he and. his companions were going to a golf course and lost their way. The shots came without warning; he Argentina's Tug-Of-War Continues BUENOS AIRES, Argentina tug-of-war be 'tween anti-Peronist military lead ers and .constitution-minded poli- ticians continued today with Pres: ident.Jose. Maria..Guido caught in the middle. Guido was reported still reluc- tant to go along with the mili- tary's anti-Peronist demands un less the measures are approvet by Congress. He reportedly sough assui-ances from leaders of the dominant Intransigent Radical party that Congress would endorse any moves the military might force him to make. It appeared doubtful that th( Intransigent Radicals of deposet President Arturo Frondizi would give .such assurances. Other fac- tions in Congress were openly conferring with the Peronists in an effort to stave off the military A meeting between Guido anc the military bosses scheduled for early today was called off ai the last moment. A presidential spokesman said Guido had asked that it be postponed until later in the day because he was suf- fering from the flu and fatigue brought on by two virtually sleep- less nights of crisis conferences. The armed forces chiefs are de- manding that Guido issue presi- dential decrees to (1) Ban politi- cal activity by Peronists and oth- er elements the military consid- ers subversive, (2) Nullify the March 18 election results in which the Peronists scored sweeping victories (3) End the current emergency session of Congress and (4) Call new elections for president and vice president.

Orders Reserves Integrated WASHINGTON Pent- some Reserve is, one agon has directed that all-Negro and -all-white Reserve units be in- tegrated as rapidly as is consist- ent with military effectiveness. The move was aimed at tighten- ing compliance with a 14-year-old order. The directive, it disclosed to- day, does not apply to the Na- tional Guard which the Defense Department said is an organiza- tion of volunteers under the com- mand of the respective governors. Clash Avoided While sidestepping. possible clash with Southern governors and Southern congressmen, the Defense Department -indicated it loped to make progress in guard integration through and persuasion. Officials said 10 consultation states still maintain segregated National Guard units. The list was not available immediately. The Reserve integration action was ordered by Re-swell L, Gil- >atric, deputy secretary of de- 'ense, in an April 3 memorandum to the Army, Navy and Air Force. Compliance Gilpatric said it is aimed at as- suring compliance with a 1948 executive order by then President Truman banning .racial segrega- ion in the armed forces. A high official said the regular Army, Navy, Air F.orce and Ma- rine been_integrated jut" is: some question whether it has been done fully and effectively in the Reserve ele- ments of these services. Another official indicated there has been token integration .in or two Negroes filtered in with an otherwise all-white outfit. Federal Control Unlike the National Guard, the Reserves are totally under federal control. Gilpatric directed two specific steps-and called for an initial ac- tion report by-May 1. The two steps: 1. "The identification of all-Ne- gro and all-white Reserve units, and initiation of action to inte- grate them as rapidly as is. con- sistent with military effective- ness." Review -2. "An over-all review of assignment of Negroes to Re- serve units to determine if a dis- proportionate number are .as- signed to pools.

Thurmond, who has been battling for" months against what he called Pentagon muzzling' of military officers, said he thought an Army investigation was appropriate if Roberts had in fact questioned the loyalty of Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles and Asst.
