neighbors1 HOME EDITION VOL 102 Associated Press and United Press International Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 27 1962 UOc a Paptr Consists of Four One No 197 Postalpay bill revision killed FROM OUE WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON The Senate Thursday twice beat down efforts to modify a controversial section of its postalpay bill that would bar Communist propa ganda from the mails unless it was sent first class After debate that became bitter at times the chamber re fused 48 to 33 to make detention of Communistorigin mail dis cretionary with the president The outcome pushed a notch closer to passage a bill provid ing for a billiondollar a year pay rise for federal workers and a million hike in postal rates for users of the mails Sen Joseph S Clark DPa offered the unsuccessful amend ment to allow the President to decide whether Communistorigin mail should be delivered only on specific request of the intended Challenge to federal supremacy A crisis in Mississippi By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International The showdown between federal and state power now impending in Mississippi is the gravest con stitutional crisis of its kind to confront the United States since the Civil War By openly defying US courts Gov Ross Barnett has challenged the doctrine supposedly estab lished by the Civil War that federal authority is supreme throughout the nation Not even the Little Rock crisis which caused President Eisen hower to send paratroopers into the Arkansas capital five years ago this week presented such a recipient The chamber earlier defeated 51 to 23 another substitute by Clark It would have authorized the postmaster general to notify the prospective recipient of Com munist or obscene mail and let him decide whether it should be delivered Debate on the second Clark pro posal was marked by a resentful outburst from Sen John Sherman Cooper RKy Cooper charged that some Senate opponents of the amendment were saying that supporters were soft on commu nism Im not going to accept this talk of being soft on commu nism the Kentuckian declared Sen Olin Johnston DSC floor Violence feared at Mississippi direct challenge to federal su premacy The paratroopers went into Little Rock after Arkansas Gov Orval Faubus had called out state militiamen to prevent Negro stu dents from being enrolled in Cen tra High School under a federal court order But Faubus stopped short of a manager for the bill said he had enough votes to pass the billion dollar pay boost along with the increased mail rates that would go next Jan 7 Congress meanwhile has com pleted action on a resolution en dorsing the use of force if neces sary to prevent Cuba from be coming a military threat to West ern Hemisphere countries House adoption by a 3847 vote Wednesday came rafter a full scale debate on foreign policy and an unsuccessful effort byseveral members to have tougher lan guage written in The Senate voted its approval last week 86 to 1 President Ken Photofax TWINS CRIPPLED BY Lee fore ground and his twin brother George manage a few steps with the aid of crutches at the Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled Children in Dallas Tex The boys from Wortham Tex suffer from a condition known as arthrogryposos which affects principally joints and muscles Work with the Lee twins is almost continuous to prevent their feet from returning to a clubfoot position and to keep their knees and hips straight The twins have been admitted to the hospital five times for stays not less than a month each time Masks helmets issued Showdown may be at hand whatever action siders necessary final showdown When the para troopers descended on Little Rock he offered no further resistance to federal authority And he never got himself in the legal position of personally defying a federal court order Barnett by contrast has dra matized his personal defiance of the US courts by physically blocking the path of the Negro student James H Meredith with whose admission to the state uni versity he had been forbidden by the courts to interfere The Mississippi governor also has ordered state police to resist federal marshals and if necessary to place them under arrest Justice Department officials in Washington have been clinging to the hope that some way might be found to avoid a blunt test of strength with the governor But Atty Gen Robert F Kennedy has stated that it is his responsibility to see that federal court orders are obeyed no matter what course is ultimately necessary The Fifth US Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered Barnett to appear before it in New Orleans to show cause why he should not be cited for contempt If the gov ernor spurns this summons the federal government will be faced with a choice between letting him get away with it or sending a sufficient federal force into Mis sissippi to take him into custody regardless of any resistance that state authorities may offer US officials consider the form er alternative intolerable and say it would lead to a breakdown of federal power The latter alternative is hardly less grave they acknowledge since it could have incalculable consequences Barnetts doctrine is that a state has the right to interpose its own authority to prevent enforce ment of a federal law when it considers the federal law to be unconstitutional US courts have rejected the interposition doctrine several times in recent years Many his torians feel that the Civil War itself was the ultimate repudiation of any idea that state sovereignty is supreme in a headon clash with federal authority WARNS OF WAR SPLIT Yugoslavia President Leonid Brezhnev said Thursday an American attack nedy is expected to sign the docu ment The administration al ready has endorsed its careful
