Byrd Support Despite the questions, Byrd said at the close of Wednesday's learings that Rockefeller likely vill be confirmed by congress, barring any new and more dam- aging disclosures. Byrd. a key member of the ;enate rules committee and one if Rockefeller's toughest ques- ioners, said he will vote for the lomination as of now. But he aid he would do so with some eservations. In another development, it was disclosed that a study by the congressional joint com- mittee on internal revenue taxation places Rockefeller's estimated net worth at about million, million more than the value lie placed on his personal holdings seven weeks ago. Rockefeller said the higher figure was based on arbitrary judgments by committee ex- perts about the present worth of his real estate holdings and large art collection, and said he questioned the estimate's accu- racy. preme court has held.

Crossed Line The motorcycle, driven by Patrolman James Gillen, was enroutc to the scene of an ac- cident al a shopping center. Gillen crossed the center line into the left lane on First ave- nue to avoid rubber cones which city employes had set up in his own lane in order to repaint lines marking traffic lanes. The motorcycle collided will a car driven by John Nelsoi: Moses, which was making a lefl turn. The jury denied the city any damages after District Judge Louis Schultz ruled that Gillen was negligent in driving on the wrong side of the street. In its appeal, the city argued that a section of law which jives emergency vehicles the right of way over other traffic allowed Gillen to drive in the left lane. Three Dissenters The majority opinion, written by Justice M. L. Mason, how- ever, said the general priority given to emergency vehicles does not allow them to travel in the wrong traffic lane. Jutice K. David Harris wrote a dissent in which Justices tVard Reynoldson and Mark Mc- joined. Harris said emergency vehic- es are given a special privilege >y the law requiring other traf- ic to yield to them, and it was an error to hold Gillen was negligent as a matter of law. 20 YEARS AGO Governors of seven southern states pro- claimed they intended to main- tain racial segregation in public schools.
