tease that makes all North lowans neighbors MASON CJTY JOWA THURSDAY JULY 5 1962 10o a Paper Consists of Two Ons NO 121 End orse political union of Europe 1 July the month for j jazz fetes Big test for Newport R I By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau jazz fes tival at Newport R I begin ning Friday is only one of many this month one could say how ever that its interest lo the public is almost as much socio logical as musical The question this year is whether the crowd can be kept in hand or whether a rather dismal story of beer and beat niks sweatshirts and sneakers rowdyism and riots will be re peated For a time it appeared that the Newport Jazz Festival es tablished in 1954 by George Wein a jazz authority instruc tor entrepreneur and musi cian and Louis and Elaine Lor illarcl had made the Rhode Is land harbor town the summer jazz capital of Lhc nation In later years however an ugly element began to infiltrate the audiences College boys and a good many others who had never set foot on cam in sweatshirts and blue jeans and guzzling beer descended on Newport The beaches were filled with sleep ing young people and some who eschewed sleep Altercations with the police multiplied Finally riots caused the close of the 1960 concerts ahead of schedule Youngsters hurling beer cans fought virtu ally pitched battles with the po lice New producers took over last year for what was billed as Mu sic at Newport The emphasis was still heavily on jazz but the program was broad enough to include Judy Garland a woman with a lusty voice but hardly in the jazz tradition and Bob Hope who as it turned out had to cancel at a discon certingly late moment More importantly the town and the producers cooperated in police control to a remark able degree Some 300 volun teers were an hour augment the 77man New port police force The producers and the city government shared the added expense Snow fences were erected at strategic intervals along Me morial Boulevard The narrow access streets to Frccbody Park strictly controlled No beer parties were allowed on the beach Special ordinances gave police emergency powers to control possession and drink ing of liquor and beer though beer yas sold inside the park The sneaker and sweatshirt crowd arrived by the thousands But as Variety later reported the realstory was in the way in which the beerguzzling dir tysncakcred riffraff were ei ther kept out or controlled if they did come This year George Wein the pianist who was a founder of the festival and who in winter runs the Storyville nightclub in Boston and teaches jazz at Bos ton University is back as a producer and also as a perform er He is running on a tight bud get But the stars will be as big as ever Among them to name a few will be Duke Ellington Louis Armstrong Count Basic Dave Brubeck Carol Sloanc the Providence belter who is a Newport find and the Warsaw Wreckers from Poland who went over big at the first In ternational Jazz Festival in Washington in early June In a way this Newport Fes tival will be a test Numerous other festivals are scheduled this summer notably at the Berskshire Music Barn at Las Vegas and at Monterey Calif FACING MORE QUESTIONS This is study of Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman as he resumed his testimony at a Senate Investigations Subcommittee hearinginto the affairs of Billie Sol Estes From

joint appeal coincided with initially favorable reac tion throughout Europe to Presi dent Kennedys declaration of interdependence speech Wednes day urging American partnership with a united Europe De Gaulle and Adenauer in a communique issued after three days of meetings said France and West Germany should joir with their common market part ners to conclude as soon as possible the discussions on

which we would view the forma tion of this Congress has been perpetually wary of anything which would require this country to yield any of its right or ability to do as it pleased This was one of the
