Frank Clement HOUSTON—(AP)—About 25 “demonstration pickets” pa- I’aded in front of the Shamrock Hotel last night as Tennessee Gov. Frank Clement spoke at a testimonial dinner. No incidents developed. The pickets included members of the White Citizens Council of Greater Houston but most of them said they were not members of the Council but were sympathetic to its anti integration program. Clement told reporters he does not object to anybody expi-essing themselves, including White Citizens Council pickets, so long as they conduct themselves in a lawful man ner. Officials of the Council an- - *" nounced plans for the pickets last week, saying the demon stration would protest Clem ent’s recent action in ordering out National Guard troops during the school integration disorders at Clinton, Tenn. One picket identified himself as J. A. Curry, 46, Mansfield, a North Texas community which had inte gration troubles last month. Curry cai'ried several placards. Two of them read: “Mansfield endorses Shivers for any office” and “Mans field casts her white votes for John Ben Shepperd.” Curry said he drove to Houston after reading a newspaper an nouncement of the Council’s picket plans. A woman in a long r.ed dress and red bandana carried a sign which had attached to it two imita tion roses. The sign said: “Roses for Governor Shivers. For Clem ent, skunk oil.” “It is obvious that those who would picket my speech as a re sult of my action at Clinton either misunderstood the facts or ai’e against law and order,” Clement said. Of his state’s 95 counties, he said, only one has been m-dei-ed to admit Negro students to white schools. “You have more integration in Texas than we have,” he said. The National Guard was not called out, he said, until local of ficials certified to him that there had been a complete breakdown of law and order. Clement spoke at a dinner honor ing Dr. Marcus Levinson of Hous ton for his work in behalf of the state of Israel and Zionism. BULLETIN There will be no hot water in the dormitories Thursday and Friday because of a malfunction at the power plant, Harry Boyer, Chief of Housing, said today. All School Bible Study Organized Approximately 70 student Bible study leaders met la'st night to organize a school wide plan of conducting Bible study in the dormitories. The leaders are working on a coordinated plan to enable them to conduct, as close as possible, the same general topic from the Bible all over the school at. the same time. “Our goal is pointed toward a Bible study pi-ogi-am in every unit in the Coi-ps and two in each civilian dorm,” said Corps Chaplain Dwayne Bailey. “Attendance tonight indicated practically every unit in the Corps was represented together with about 15 civilian students present to help launch the civilian side of the program,” Bailey said. Arthur Smith, professor of Bible Chair, Baptist Student Union, spoke at the meeting. Next sched uled meeting is the first Tuesday in November. Car Returns Six Months After Loan DALLAS, <A>>—On Feb. 22 —George Washington’s Birth day—a man priced a swank, red-and white hardtop auto and a trusting salesman let him drive it around the block. For six months the dealer, police and officers in 47 other states could find no trace of the car. Early today the mo tor company’s owner, J. A. Treadway had a phone call. “Don’t bother about who is talking,” directed a man’s voice. “You remember losing that car in February — well, it’s back.” Treadway found the “tired” looking car parked near his office. It bore evidence of about 12,000 hard miles of motoring—and had been wiped clean of clues. MRS.
