  • Description

    In Phoenix, Arizona, a mass of civil rights demonstrators shouting "freedom", blocked entrances to the state Senate building on Monday, pressing their demands for passage of the accommodation section of the civil rights bill now before the Senate. Time and again they tried to force entry into the building but each time strong police forces blocked the way.

    The following day the demonstrators tried different tactics. With their numbers added to by students on their Easter holiday, the demonstrators sat in the main road at traffic intersections adjoining the Senate building.

    Phoenix police kept traffic jams down to a minimum by diversion, but with temperature at 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 centigrade) patience and tempers wore thin.

    Now the state Senate building has been closed to the public and remains protected by massive police squads.
