    Background: Police Wednesday (1 April) arrested 88 more demonstrators who were trying to integrate public facilities in St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest city in the United States.

    Specific target of the demonstrators was the segregated dining room of the Ponce De Leon Motor Lodge. So far 288 persons, some of them white, some Negro, have been arrested in the demonstration which began Saturday (28 March).

    Among those arrested earlier was 72-year-old Mrs. Malcolm Peabody, mother of Governor Endicott Peabody of Massachusetts.

    Even as some of the 88 arrested Friday were being booked, Mrs. Peabody held a news conference on the steps of the nail where she is being held.

    She said her arrest put spotlight on the city and gave it unwelcome publicity. She added her arrest and those of others from the North let people know Negroes wanted a change and couldn't get it by themselves.

    St. Augustine, originally founded by the Spanish h as 14,734 inhabitants of whom 11,323 are white. It is a mecca for tourists seeking a restful atmosphere.
