    Background: MORE THAN 225 ANTI-SEGREGATION DEMONSTRATORS WERE ARRESTED IN BALTIMORE YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AS FURTHER RACIAL UNREST MARKED AMERICA'S INDEPENDENCE DAY.

    TWO SENIOR CHURCH DIGNITARIES AND SEVERAL ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIESTS WERE AMONG 22 CLERGY ARRESTED, AS THE 400 DEMONSTRATORS CONVERGED ON A PRIVATELY-OWNED WHITES-ONLY AMUSEMENT PARK. POLICE MET THE DEMONSTRATORS WALKED ON AND THE ARRESTED WERE MADE. APART FORM JEERING FROM SOME ONLOOKERS THE DEMONSTRATION WAS CALM AND WITHOUT VIOLENCE.

    IN CHICAGO A SIMILAR PROTEST MARCH WAS HELD. THIS PROTEST, LIKE MANY OTHER RECENT DEMONSTRATION, WAS CALLED BY THE N.A.A.C.P. (THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLOURED PEOPLE). ABOUT 15,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE DEMONSTRATIONS WHICH CULMINATED IN A RALLY IN CHICAGO'S PARK. MAYOR RICHARD DALEY, WHO LED THE PROCESSION, WAS TO HAVE ADDRESSED THE MEETING, BUT THE DEMONSTRATORS SHOUTED HIM DOWN.

    MAYOR DALEY HAS BEEN UNDER CRITICISM FORM NEGRO LEADERS FOR A RECENT STATEMENT THAT THERE IS NO NEGRO "GHETTO" IN CHICAGO. THE MAYOR, A DEMOCRAT, IS REPORTED TO HAVE ATTRIBUTED HIS COLD RECEPTION TO A "REPUBLICAN CONSPIRACY." ANOTHER SPEAKER RECEIVED THE SAME TREATMENT. POLICE PROTECTION WAS GIVEN TO ENABLE HIM TO LEAVE THE MEETING.
