New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 20, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Rock-tossing crowd heckles Klan rally AUSTIN (AP) - A Ku Klux Klan raUy turned into a riot Saturday when hundreds of hecklers hurled rocks and debris at robed Ku Klux Klan marchers who circled the state Capitol. Police arrested nine people. Four police officers, six demonstrators, a bystander and a reporter were injured in the melee. None was hospitalized. The Klan march came four hours after a peaceful demonstration earlier Saturday by anti-Klan organizations. The Austin City Council granted parade permits for both rallies. About 50 Klansmen, some with shields and helmets, marched to the Capitol from a nearby park. The short route was lined with hecklers — as many as 1,500, according to Larry Todd, Department of Public Safety information officer. An Austin policeman, two DPS troopers and a Travis County sheriff’s deputy were taken to a hospital after being hit with debris thrown by hecklers. Brackenridge Hospital officials said all the injured suffered minor wounds, such as lacerations and bruises, and that none had been hospitalized. Elena de la Garza of Brackenridge Community Relations said she did not know if the demonstrators were injured by debris, other demonstrators or police. Several people were pushed to the ground and an Associated Press reporter was struck in the jaw by nightstick-wielding policeman as officers tried to push the crowd back behind a police line. A police spokesman said those arrested face charges ranging from assault to inciting to riot. He said one person was arrested for possession of marijuana. The Klan rally on the Capitol grounds was drowned out by the shouting crowd. Klan leader James Stanfield of Channelview, Texas, used a bullhorn, but could not outshout the crowd. Hecklers forced their way through the tumult to spit at the Klansmen. “You can’t beat us,’’ Stanfield, clad in a red robe, yelled. “Change sides and join us. Make your mothers proud of you. “We’ll give you whatver you need. Join the Klan, become a man, all you white people. You black people, go back to Africa,” he said. The hecklers followed the Klansmen as they went to the back of the Capitol. Helmeted police — including 150 Austin policemen called in for the day — shielded the Klansmen from the crowd, but not from the rocks. Todd said there were no reports of injuries to Klansmen or people in the crowd. A knife hurled at Klansmen hit a photographer on the shoulder. The Klansmen got in the vehicles and left the area about 40 minutes after the march began. Austin Police Chief Frank Dyson said the rally went about as he expected. “Under the circumstances, we came out of it as well as we could,” Dyson said. Reporter hit by policeman EDITOR’S NOTE: Associated Press reporter Ken Herman was injured by a police officer during Saturday’s Ku Klux Klan rally at the Texas Capitol. Here is his account. By KEN HERMAN Associated Press Writer AUSTIN (AP) — Reporters assigned to Saturday’s Ku Klux Klan rally at the Texas Capitol were forced to cover the fracus from within a moving crowd of hecklers following beside the Klan’s march. The Klansmen were protected by police who escorted them through the roped-off parade route. Earlier Saturday, police offered similar protection at an anti-Klan rally that led to the Capitol. Near the end of the Klan march, as the outnumbered Klansmen were heading back to their vehicles, Austin police stopped the crowd in which I was moving. The police, dressed in riot gear, had no trouble halting the crowd at a street corner, and the approximately 50 Klansmen were at least several hundred feet away. By that time there were small scuffles along the route and numerous rocks were flying through the air. The trouble around me started when the police tried to move the crowd back. While hecklers near the front were being forced backwards by the police, people at the rear of the crowd were still moving forward. One heckler wound up on the ground, struggling with police. I stopped and shot one photograph. I caught a quick glimpse of an officer heading my way. He came out from a group of several policemen and hit me with the end of his night stick. It hit the left side of my jaw, opening a cut that bled profusely and required six stitches to close. The officer, who swung at me although the hecklers around me seemed more menacing, retreated into the pack of police. He wore no name tag and his badge number was too small to discern. I reported the incident to Austin Police Chief Frank Dyson, who asked me to file a complaint, but conceded there could be little action taken unless I could identify the officer. I can’t. Shuttle delay caused by lathe mishap WASHINGTON (AP) — The space shuttle Challenger is grounded on its Florida launch pad, weeks after it was to have soared into space, because a runaway lathe dented a rocket engine 14 months ago. The second ship in America’s shuttle fleet was to have taken off in mid-January, but its maiden flight has been delayed until at least mid-March because of a leak in one of its three main engines and a leak in another engine rushed in as a spare. A second spare — borrowed from another spacecraft — is being readied. The holdup is costing millions of dollars, has raised questions about engine quality control and could upset planning for four other shuttle missions scheduled this year. “Our failure analysis showed pretty conclusively that the cause of the first leak can be traced back to a unique repair made as a result of the (lathe) accident,” said Walter F. Dankhoff, director of engine programs at NASA headquarters here. James Hale of the engine manufacturer, Rocketdyne Division of Rockwell International, said the engine’s main combustion chamber had been placed on the vertical turret lathe for a minor weld repair at the assembly plant in Canoga Park, Calif. The lathe operator, he said, was centering the chamber’s position on the machine by pushing a “jog button” that moved the machine in small increments. He also clamped on an indicator to determine when it was perfectly centered. “But he didn’t clamp the indicator on properly and it fell down,” Hale said. “As he reached down to retrieve the indicator, the clutch slipped on the machine and instead of stopping, it kept on turning. “The operator should have hit the emergency button to stop the machine, but he was distracted by the fallen indicator and before he could act, it hit the neck and bent it over,” Hale said. “It created a small crack in the neck of the manifold and it had to be repaired.” sdcutcU (Sonde* (fatten, February is for feeding jms&n&q&sa PECAN 'jlMllI TREES SSS easy’gro Tree & Shrub Fertilizer COMPLETE PUNT FOOD, WATER SOLUBLE, FRITTED MULTIPLE MICRONUTRIENTS. • IRON^ip-’l c • ZINC •SULFUR ' p SPECIAL *6.29 SPECIAL Buy 2 bags 40 lb.
