ATLANTA (Pi—Kicking and push-
ing marked a street sitdown dem-
onstration that tied up traffic for
several blocks in the downtown
area Friday.

Three white persons and 10 Ne-
groes were arrested on charges
of blocking traffic and disorderly

Before police arrived, several
hundred persons milled around in
front of Leb’s Restaurant, a target

| of the demonstrators. Several dem-
| onstrators were struck, kicked,
|pushed and dragged across the
pavement by white spectators. In
some cases, spectators tried to pull
protestors from the intersection to
permit cars to pass.

It was the first such street dem-
onstration in efforts to desegregate
downtown restaurants which did
not join in an integration move by
other eating places recently.

The demonstrators were mem-
bers of the Committee On Appeal
For Human Rights. Earlier some
of them had picketed Leb’s Res-

Two demonstrators were taken to
a hospital for treatment after the

Picket signs were jerked from
the hands of demonstrators and
torn to pieces by onlookers.

The 13 arrested persons were
picked up bodily by police and
placed in a paddy wagon after
they refused to move. At police
headquarters, they refused to get
out of the wagon until officers per-
suaded them that one of their
number, an injured woman, would
get medical treatment sooner if

Ohio, was arrested when he re-
fused to move away from the door
