Extra Protection Requested To Spare' Ruby In Jail NFL Okays Return For Grid Stars By BELMAN MORIN DALLAS (AP) — Jack Ruby remained alone in a jail cell today while his attorneys prepared to appeal the verdict of a Dallas jury which sentenced him to death for murder. “Maximum security” surrounds Ruby, Sheriff Bill Decker said. But Ruby’s attorney, Melvin Belli, said he is worried about a possible attempt on Ruby’s life and has asked tor extra Defense Counsel Fears Attempt May Be Made To Murder Client protection for him. “Later on,” Decker said, “when he has adjusted to the jolt of the verdict, he probably will be put in a large cell with other prisoners.

The attorney said: “Ruby is worried, and so am I, that they may slip someone into his cell—another prisoner —with a shiv < knife) in order to prevent our appeal. Then they would make it appear as a suicide and this vicious city would have him off their hands.” Throughout the 23-day trial, three guards sat near Ruby in court—so near, in fact, that Belli once protested they were listening to his conversations with Ruby.

Page 9 NEW YORK (AP) - Paul Hornung, star Green Bay Packers halfback, and Alex Karras, bruising defensive tackle of the Detroit Lions, were restored to good standing by the National Football League today, after having been suspended nearly a year ago for betting on football games. NFL Commissioner Pete Ro-zelle announced the two players had been reinstated after separate reviews of their suspensions and personal discussions with the two players. They were suspended April 17, 1963, after both had admitted betting on their teams to win certain games and on some games in which they were not involved. Rozelle said there was no evidence that either player ever bet against his own team or failed to do his best in any NFL game. Rozelle said he had established to his own satisfaction that each player now has a clear understanding of the seriousness of the offenses and of the circumstances that brought them about. Rozelle’s prepared statement said: “Taking into prime consideration the extent of their violations and also their conduct during the period of suspension, it is felt that the best interests of the league will be best served by termination of the suspensions.” At the same time, five other Detroit players were fined the maximum of $2,000 each for betting on one game and the Detroit club was fined $4,000 for laxness in reporting information to the 'commissioner anc in supervising its bench at games. Both Hornung and Karras admitted they had made substantial bets of $50 or more over a period of several season. The other five—doe Schmidt, Wayne Walker, John Gordy, Gary Lowe and Sam Williams — bet $50 each and Karras $100 on the Green Bay Packers to beat the New York Giants in the 1962 NFL championship game.

WASHINGTON (AP) —President Johnson gave Congress marching orders today for the war on poverty, concentrating his $962.5-million attack on helping needy young Americans. The program to help youngsters in the 16 to 21 age bracket centers on a job corps reminiscent of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s. “The years of high school and college age are the most critical stage of a young person’s life,” Johnson said, in a special message on poverty. “If they are not helped then, many will be condemned to a life of poverty winch they, in turn, will pass on to their children.” The job corps would enlist up to 100.000 young men, draft rejects and school dropouts, from "those whose background, health and education makes them least fit for useful work.” These young men would be removed from their slum backgrounds and placed in camps to work on conservation projects and in special job training centers for a blend of training, basic education and work experience. Other phases of the youth program are work-training and work-studv projects, federal grants to provide full or part time jobs to help youngsters stay in high school, take vocational training or work their way through college.

He added that the ambassador whose political stock boomed with victory in New Hampshire’s Republican presidential primary, has tended to business and behaved properly. See ROADS. Page 2 Burned-Out Family Still Needs Items On his ow'n side of the political fence, Johnson dismissed as “newspaper talk” reports of a rift with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy and said he has taken Kennedy’s word that he has | done nothing to encourage efforts to boom the attorney general for the Democratic vice presidential nomination. Johnson said he hopes the Democrats will not campaign actively until after this summer’s convention, although he said he intends to “carry out srrme commitments that President Kennedy *made for fundraising dinners from time to time.” Politics and foreign policy dominated the hour-long “Conversation with the President” broadcast by the ABC, CBS and NBG radio and television net works. These were among the chief executive’s other major pronouncements: —He has had no contact with his old friend, Bobby Baker, | since Baker resigned in October as secretary to the Senate’s Democrats. The President said Baker could not properly be called his protege because “he was there before I came to the Senate for IO years.” —He intends to be “a people’s president.” And he will I continue to mix with crowds even though his bodyguards “would feel better if the president kept IOO yards distance from every human being.” —Congress should make certain the nation always has a vice president, but he doesn’t th** small business administration. —Expansion of a Welfare Department program to help train and find jobs for heads of families whose children now receive payments under the aid to dependent children program. So far, a White House source said, selection standards have not been set up for the Job Corps, nor have detailed plans been made for setting up the camps and job training center. The source said many of the 40,000 recruited for the Job Corps in the first year would come from the backlog of more than one million already rejected by the draft as physically, mentally or psychologically unfit. A source said an “outstanding educational leader” has been chosen to head the Job Corps, but refused to identify him. Enlistment for the maximum two-year term of service would be voluntary. Half of the young men recruited in the first year would be put to work in groups of 50 to 250 on “special conservation projects lo give them education, useful work experience and to enrich the natural resources of the country.” The other half will go to the job training centers, where up to 5,WH) will be congregated.
