ADDRESS TO CITIZENS OF MARYLAND ON
BURNING AND LOOTING

April 7, 1968

We have taken the following steps to restore law and order in our
State and you may be sure that the situation is under control and
under constant vigilance of State and local authorities.

We have proclaimed a state of emergency in Baltimore City and
Baltimore County.

A curfew has been imposed in Baltimore City from 4 p. m. to 6 a. m.
and in Baltimore County from 9 p. m. to 6 a. m., except for officially
approved emergency reasons.

I have ordered State offices in Baltimore City and Baltimore County
closed at 2 p. m. tomorrow to comply with an early curfew — should
that be necessary — and I have requested the business community to
do the same. State employees who are residents of Baltimore City and
County but who work in other subdivisions will also be released at
2p. m.

Executive orders have been issued prohibiting the sale of alcoholic
beverages, firearms, ammunition, flammable materials and liquids in
Baltimore City and Baltimore County. The sale of alcoholic beverages
is also banned in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties.

Every available unit of the Maryland National Guard has been
fully mobilized and deployed within the City.

In addition, at six-eleven this evening, I requested Federal rein-
forcements to further secure the City. Attorney General Ramsay Clark
agreed to immediately dispatch the troops. They should now be taking
positions in critical areas.
