The National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People is spearheading the fight. John L. Francis, president of the Ohio conference of the NAACP branches, said he was "'shocked" at U.S. Judge John H. Druffel's refusal to act now on a request to halt "enforced ia Billsboro schools. In turning down a plea for an injunction, the jurist said that any decision given at this time might be contrary to the pattern of inte- gration yet to be decided on by the Supreme Court.

Said by the pilot to have burst into flames while still air-borne, the ship plowed a furrow into the grove for an estimated 200 feet before coming to a halt.

It was on the basis of the AP ac- count that Mitchell on Sunday ac- cused Nixon of "an outright false- hood." Nixon said later Mitchell was "'shooting from the hip before he gets the facts." Mitchell's reply yesterday: Mr. Nixon conglomerates Communists, fellow travelers and security risks ia one group, he is playing a dishonest game of words to give a false impression. It is as though a police chief boasted about capturing 'thousands of murder- ers, kidnapers and parking viola- tors.' when his records show one suspected murderer, one suspected kidnaper and 2.000 parking viola- tors." Nixon, introduced at Albany by j retiring Gov. Thomas E. and Lannie Norvell, who investi- gated the crash, quoted Tedder as saying that the plane caught fire in the, air and that he crash-landed it in the orange grove. The grove is located about 300 feet west of Orange Ave. The small two-seater Cub belonging to Glade and Grove Supply Co.. knocked over four orange trees and severed power lines before coming to a stop and burning. The plane was described as a total loss; Tedder was reported to have pulled Mrs. VandenBrand from the burning plane.
