E. Thomp- son, who challenges Tal- madge's. right to the of- fice. Thompson's attor- neys announced imme- diately that they would appeal the decision to the state supreme court. A superior court in of the flights will stop at Roches- ter, Minn. The planes also will make stops at New York, Detroit, Milwaukee, I Georgia Is similar to a Madison and Minneapolis, and one United States district court, but appeals on matters concerning In- terpretation, of the state constitution may be taken directly to the su- preme court.

The body was partly buried in the snow and Burke's dog stood watch nearby. Burke's was the 13th death attri- buted to last week's blizzard. the governorship. Su- Herman Talmadge perlor Judge Claude H. Porter had previously ruled at Borne, Ga., that Thompson was the act- Ing governor. Talmadge was not a party to this suit, however. It was brought by Thompson to force members of the pardons and parole board 'to give him certain, bu-dgetary information as acting governor. Talmadge charged that the Rome decision "patently collusive" and that he had no knowledge that it was being called for hearing. It has already been appealed to the state su- preme court and a hearing set for March 10. Talmadge, who based his claim to the office on Ills election by the legislature to the term his father, Eugene Talmadge, was prevented by death from taking, was Jubilant over today's court vic- tory. Thompson said the next decision remained with the state supreme court and "the people are entitled to the earlier possible decision." In Salt Lake City, Ellis Arnall, who as gover- nor first challenged Talmadge's right to the of- fice, and later resigned turning the office over to Thompson, said the effect of the superior court decision "Is not important." He added that he was still convinced the supreme court would uphold Thompson. In a decision Judge Hendrix said "It is clear that the general assembly has the right to decide when there was no election by the people. It did decide that on account of the death of the governor-elect there had been no election by .the people. In our opinion the constitution then put the duty and responsibility on it to elect and install a governor. This duty and re- sponsibility it decided as it saw fit.
