a suit by Gov George C Wallace of Ala bama to bar use of federal troops in Birmingham The governor asked the high tribunal to declare President Kennedy violated the Constitution by send ing troops into the state for possible riot duty in Birm ingham racial troubles Wallace said neither he nor the Alabama Legisla ture had asked for federal troops and contended such a first step was necessary under the Constitution The governor asked the court also to declare unconstitu tional a postCivil War status under which the Presi dent acted and the Constitutions 14th amendment The Supreme Court in a brief order said the mo tion to file the governors complaint was denied In essence the high courts order said the papers show no more than that the President has made ready exercise the authority conferred upon him by 10 USC Section 333 by alert ing and stationing military personnel in the Birmingham area Such purely preparatory measures and their alleged adverse general effects upon the plaintiffs Alabama and Wallace afford no basis for the granting of any relief The section referred to in order is a postCivil War law giving the President authority NYJORDET SERVICES The casket of the

omplaint the court made no eference to a request by Wai ace that it declare the Consti utions 14th amendment invalid Wallace filed his suit in the Supreme Court on May 18 A brief submitted to the high court by the governor said the Presidents troop order was an exercise of personal power and asserted Mr Kennedys action if tolerated by this court would in effect create a mili tary dictatorship reject Wallaces suit as being without legal foundation The President has statutory and constitutional authority to send troops into action as he sees fit and without waiting for a request from a state
