Panama City News (Newspaper) - November 11, 1952, Panama City, Florida Halt Production Of AUGUSTA, Ga., Nov. 10 picket line thrown up abruptly by 200 electronics vvoikers set off a chain-react- ion at the Savarnah Paver plant today and cut operations "'just about to a standstill.'' The first major labor dispute at the sprawling plant in South Carolina across the river here developed as Presi- dent-elect Dwight Eisenhower vacationed only a few miles away at the Augusta Kational Golf Club. The strikers are members of the American Federation of Technical Engineers AFL.

About persons in all are employed at the mys- terious collection of tanks, towers and chimnevs where materials for the world's first hydrogen bomb may have already been compounded. About 90 per cent of the total work on the day'shifts, the AEC said, so more than 25.000 may have been affect- ed by the walkout. The operation is "just about at a said Gus Robinsor, public relations director of the ABC's Savan- nah River division.

Second Bay Polio Case In One Week Reported Yeslerday Bay county's second polio case in less than a week was repoited to health authorities here yesterday afternoon. First case this month was reported fi e days ago. Names of neither patient could be obtained Irst night. The upswing in the number of polio cases during the past month has taken local doctors by surprise. Ordi larily, the polio peak is reach- ed daring the late summer months and the number of cases shows decline during the fall. Health records heie show, how- that this year's peak came last month Four cases were le- ported for the 31 day period. The highest pre-uous month was Aug- ust with three Only one case was leported in September Dr. A. F. Ullman. director of the City County Health Center, said in one of the two cases reported this month there is no paralysis. In the other there is slight paraly- sis. Police Query Youth About Missing Gear From Fishing Smack A 16 jear old boy was held by county authorities here last night in connection with the theft Sunday night of fishing equipment fiom a boat tied at Tarpon Docks City police who apprehended the youth said the boy had confessed the theft Part of the goods lepoited stol- en were recovered. Effects of the spreading southeastern drought have shoved their way into indus- try here. The withering lack of rain, which already threat- ens to transform several states into a new. barren Dust Bowl, is also drying up the fish market. Demand for mullet hardest hit a the fish markets has dropped considerably. Local fish- erman and wholesalers pin much of the cause directly to the drought whuh has been plaguing the ?iea. A big wholesaler here who serves a large inland farming aiea said the demand for fish has almost completely disappeared. Hie rea- son, he says, is that fai' lers, their crops cut lean by the of rain, are depending more more on foodstuffs which f sy can grow themselves and a' _ buying fewer and fewer outs ae commodities such as fish. "Why, those iarmers are having such a bad tone they've decided to eat only what they can grow, he said. "That just leaves fish completely out." The d- ought has not been, how- ever, cr.clusuely responsible for the d; astic sag in fish sales. wholesalers point to last yerrs overproduction as the reason frr the slack now, and other oiair.e the influx of frozen fish Regardless of the reason, most fishermen are facing a gloomy year with no market for their prod- uct m sight. Thp drop in demand resulted in similar cuts in the amount dealers bought from the fishermen. Some of them are now in tight circum- stances. A few have turned to other things in an attempt to see themselves and their families through the lean times, but most are trying des- perately to hang on, hoping for an upsurge in the market A few are looking for new fish- (Turn to WITHERING, Page 2) Kiwanis Minstrel Tickets On Sale Quit Year Ea rly Un der Stiffened Soviet Pressure Tickets are now on sale for the fifth annual Kiwanis Club Minstrel show scheduled for Nov. 19 and 20 here, publicity director Bill Boyle said today.

Apainchicola nvei reading- at Chpttahoochee yesterday; .51 m- cher. falline. Bv CHARLO1TE G. MOULTOX j UnUed Press Staff Correspondent j WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 i The Supreme Court struck down a Southern racial tradition today by ruling that "Jim Crow" railroad cars which separate Negroes from white passengers are unconstitu- tional The order, handed down without a written opinion, presumably ap- plies to bus transportation as well. It upheld a lower court decision that railroads no longer may for- bid Negroes to travel in the "same cars with white passengers. Railioad passenger segiegation has been a common practice in Southern states except aboard North-to-South "through" trains. Despite todays ruling. Negro lead- ers believe it will take sex-eial years and many court cases be- fore "Jim Crow" coaches are removed completely They said segregation in buses has caused even more disturbances than the railroad rules. In another segregation case, the Supreme Court agreed to review a complaint against separation ot Negro and white students in Dis- trict of Columbia schools. The court also: 1. Took no action on the second appeal of Ethel and Julius Rosen- berg, convicted-atomic spies await- ing execution in Sing Sing Prison. 2. Rejected the appeal of New- York gambler Frank Costello, who has started serving an 18-month sentence for contempt of Congress. 3 Agreed to examine a civil anti-trust judgment against the New Orleans Times-Picayune Pub- lishing Co for selling advertising in two newspapers on a "unit combination rate." 4. Agreed to review the consti- tutionality of Michigan's Commun- ist control law which is similar to the so-called McCarran internal security law of 1950 Many states also have parallel laws. Arguments on the District of Columbia school segregation case will be heard with three similar cases in Virginia. South Carolina and Kansas next month. These cases are aimed at the "sepaiate but equal facilities" doctrine which holds that segregation in itself is not discriminatory. The railroad case, appealed by the _Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, was "started by William C. Chance, Negro school principal of Parmele, N C who was arrested for refus- ing to change from a white to a, Negro coach in 1948. Chance sued the railroad for damages aiter the conduc- tor put him off the train. His case was supported by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Lower courts held that segrega- tion in travel placed an un- constitutional bin den on inteistnt" commerce, and the high court agreed In an earlier action, the court had refused to grant a new hear- ing for the Rosenbergs, who were convicted in 1951 of espionage for taking part in a spy ring "which stole U S. atomic secrets for Russia Costello. 61, was convicted for refusing to answer questions before the Senate Crime Committee last year.
