Police clubbed segregationists today in a short, violent bat- tle over integration of Little Rock's public high schools.

He also plans, Eisenhower said, to ask why Khrushchev does not permit the progress in improvement of East-West relations which Eisenhower considers necessary for a summit conference. Eisenhower said he is most anxious for Khrushchev to see the fine, small, modest homes in which Americans live, in- cluding those in such spe- cific places as the Levittown development and the com- munity around the Fairless steel plant in Pennsylvania. THE PRESIDENT did not specify which Levittown and some of his audience took him to mean the one on Long Island, which would provide two widely separated exam- ples. Press Secretary James C.

Six of the segre- galionisls, all men, were pushed into a patrol wagon. The marchers had been chanting "2-4-6-8, we don't want to integrate." It was one of the battle cries segregationists had use'd in 1957. Integration was en- forced at Central that year by federal troops but last fall Fabus closed all high schools to stop integration. Smith warned the crowd to break up before he ordered his police task force into ac- tion. He called on firemen, too, to spray the crowd with water from a truck which had been parked at an inter- section. 4 THE MARCHERS were led by a sound truck, playing 'Dixie." Heading the parade were five men marching abreast and carrying Ameri- can and Confederate flags. The scuffle lasted six or eight minutes. The worst was over in four minutes. The street was cleared but small groups reformed on the side- walk. Smith did not have the fire hose turned on the crowd un- til after the arrest of the six men.

It could be up to apiece for each of Indians in the state. It probably won't be that much. The Indian Claims Commission in Washington announced Tuesday that the California tribesmen are entitled to un- specified compensation for about three- fourths of the land in California.

Foster wouldn't reveal what the Indian compromise offer will be. He noted that they got S1.25 an acre in 1944 for about acres they never got from the white men under unratified treaties. The current case, which involves 65 to 75 million acres, could amount to around 90 million dollars to be divided equally among the descendants "of the Indian resi- dents of California in 1852. Foster indicated his compromise offer might cut the figure by a third. That would be 60 million dollars or about for each Indian. However, in Ihe 1944 award the gov- ment deducted about two-thirds as money advanced for support. others injured shortly before loon today when a bridge icar General Hospital col- lapsed without warning.
