The jury was discharged 15 days after receiving the case when it reported it could not agree on a verdict. One juror told newsmen the uroro had engaged in "big ights" during their long consid- iration of the case. Superior Judge Herbert V. Walker declared a mistrial after being told by jury foreman Fred McCulley he" was convinced verdict could not be reached with further deliberation. Deputy Distiict Attorney Wil- iam L. Rltzi, who prosecuted the case, said after the jury was re- eased: "Naturally the case will be re- ricd. But I am very disappoint- with the icsult of this trill." Defense Attorney Arthur J. Crowley said: I feel very good about it. Af- ter the prosecution tried every- thing in the book, they couldn't get a conviction." Judge Walker set Oct. 10 for a hearing to fix the retrial date. Fred Meade, who was a de- fendant along with his wife, Mar joric, said: "We are glad it's over, but we had expected acquittal." Juror LaGuerre Drouet, the most outspoken member of the jury through the long trial, dis- closed to newsmen that on the majority of ballots the margin for conviction was 7-5. Drouet said that he was a member of the minority voting for acquittal. From Drouel's comments on the deliberations, it was obvious (CuUatMd M N LITTLE nOCK urprise Decision Comes as Agreement Seemed Assured IKE GIVES STAND No 'Ironclad Assurances' U. S. Orders Will Be Obeyed, He Says WASHINGTON, Oct. 1 (AP) resident Eisenhower refused to- ight to order federal troops out f Little Rock, Ark. He took the position that Gov. irval Faubus had not given iron- lad assurances that the gover- or would use his full powers to revent obstruction of school in- egration orders of a federal ourt. Swift Development Thus, efforts to settle the In- egration crisis in the Arkansas :apital collapsed, at least for the ime being, just as they seemed on the point of fulfillment. Faubus had issued a statement at Little Rock declaring that: "I now declare, that upon with- drawal ol federal I will again assume full responsibility, in cooperation with local author- ities, for the maintenance of law and order, and that the orders of the federal courts will not be ob- structed by me." After a lengthy conference with WJirle House staff members, Eis- enhower came back tonight witi this statement: "The statement issued this ivening by the governor of Ar- ansas does not constitute, in my pinion, the assurance that he in- ends to use his full powers as overnor to prevent the obstruc- on of the orders of the U. S. Dis- rict court. Under the circum- tances, the President of the Unit- d States has no recourse at the resent time except to maintain ederal surveillance of the situa- n. Commends Dixie Governors 'I want to commend the gov- rnors representing the southern overnors conference for their co- perative attitude at the meeting oday. I hope that they will con- nue their efforts, as will the fed- government, to bring about basis for the withdrawal of fed- ral forces in Little Rock and for le orderly carrying out of the rders of the district court." Eisenhower was referring to the overnors of North Carolina, Ten- essee, Florida and Maryland, ho met with him at length today nd left with the expressed con- iction that they had worked out the President a plan for olving the troop issue in Little ock. Faubus, at Little Rock, said he ould uphold law and order and hat "it has never been my in- ntion to obstruct the orders of he federal courts." Early Optimism Voiced The governors who met four ours among themselves today, Iked with Faubus by telephone, nd then conferred with Eisen- ower had been optimistic about icir achievements. They were Govs. Luther odges of North Carolina, Theo- ore McKeldin of Maryland, Le- oy Collins of Florida and Frank lement of Tennessee. They, and Eisenhower, had aid in a joint statement that the overnors informed the Presi- ent that Faubus had authorized iem to say he was prepared to ssume full responsibility for laintaining law and order in ittle Rock and would not ob- truct federal court orders. On that basis, the statement ontinued: "The President stated that upon declaration on the part of the overnor of Arkansas that he will ot obstruct the orders of the ederal courts and will In con- (Continued on Page Eight) -..w.-by CNin Miller, The best way to [it rid of a' low of worriet to; kt'ttni MtlKt
