Mayor Dodds is anxious to get House Board Slays Out Of Court Feud Docidos Doesn't Hovo Enough Evidence to Toke Any Action in Controversy By J. FRANK TRAGLE WASHINGTON. June 13.-(J?) The house judiciary committee decided today it does not have sufficient evidence to take any action in the supreme court controversy involving Justices Robert H. Jackson and Hugo L. Black. Chairman Hatton W. Sumners (D.-Tex.) told reporters at the end of the closed meeting that there is “no determination at the moment to conduct an investigation.’* Sumners said Jackson’s criticism of Black, cabled to the committee Monday from Nuernberg. Germany, was discussed at length but the concensus was that the committee had no jurisdiction in the matter. The committee remains free to take action or recommend action later, the chairman said, if any evidence should indicate the need. Three Courses Open Even before the meeting, Sumners was on record as favoring a go-slow attitude. At that time, he said the committee could take one of three courses: 1. Recommend an investigation into Jackson’s complaint that Justice Hugo Black employed “bullying” tactics and threatened him with “war” unless he “covered up facts” in the portal-to-Portal mine wage case last year. 2. Decide to take no action at all, or 3. Adjourn without taking formal recognition of the matter. The latter decision, Sumners said, would leave the committee free to act later if it desired. Sumners’ position in support of a hands-off attitude for the present was echoed in stronger words by his opposite number in the senate when Chairman McCarran (p.-Nev.) of that chamber’s judiciary committee pleaded with his colleagues to “reserve judgment ui this trying moment.” McCarran’s appeal was voiced after Senator Bridges (R.-N.H.) interrupted senate debate on OPA legislation to criticize Black for _ a speech he made before a national citizens political action committee meeting in New York last April 12. Bridges .said that supreme court justices who want to make political speeches” should resign. The New Hampshire Republican also recalled the 1937 controversy centering around Black and the Ku TClux Klan. He asserted that Black remained silent until after his confirmation as a justice and some weeks later acknowledged in a radio speech that he had been a Klan member 15 years earlier but had resigned.

The rejected monarch's moves came as Premier Alcide De Gas-peri was granted new powers as acting chief of state in a temporary compromise solution of Italy’s political crisis. Military personnel at the airport refused to discuss the king’s destination but farewells, mark- “The government’s proposal has neither been accepted nor rejected (by the unions), because we do not know yet what its final form will be.” Capt. Granville Conway, head of the war shipping administration, likewise was asked whether a settlement had been reached. “Not yet,” he replied. The conciliator who said “there’s a good chance” for a settlement during the day, added that the CIO National Maritime union, biggest union in the CMU, has not formally approved a WSA proposal to put into effect a 48-hour week for seamen and a wage increase of $17.50 a month. _____________ _______ ‘ They haven’t accepted any- ed by cheek-kissing and in several * X 111 ?* T et bu* they've indicated their willingness to accept,” h* added. cases tears, looked final.

Kerr Urges Funds Fer Power Project Asks Congress lo Restore Sum for Expending SW Power Administration WASHINGTON. June 13.—OP) —An original $7,500,000 house appropriation for expansion of the Southwest Power administration should be restored to the 1947 interior department budget, Oklahoma Governor Robert S. Kerr has asserted in Washington. “I am for restoring the amount because Oklahoma rural electrification projects, Oklahoma municipalities and prospective industrial development of the state need it,” Kerr explained. The house appropriations committee first recommended appropriation of $3,219,000 of the $23,-000,000 sought by the SPA as the initial expenditure on a longtime program which ultimately would require $200,000,000. However, Speaker Rayburn of Texas succeeded in amending the item on the house floor to increase the amount to $7,500,000, declaring that sum was needed to connect with transmission lines the government hydroelectric plants at Denison, Norfork and Grand River. The senate appropriations committee subsequently recommended that the entire amount be eliminated. Kerr W’ill confer further today with war assets administration officials on the state’s proposal to take over the surplus Oklahoma ordnance works at Chouteau and Glennan army hospital at Okmulgee. SEMINOLE, June 13.—(JP)—D. J.

Umberto’s father, tired old King Vittorio Emanuele III, went into exile in Egypt on May 9, clearing the throne for his son for a month. The king and his party left the palace in five automobiles. A small crowd of about 50 Italians was at the airport. Many were soldiers and some shouted “Long live the king” as the party drove onto the field. Earlier in the week, bloody riots had erupted in Naples. Taranto and Rome, provoked by Umberto’s reluctance to quit the throne until the supreme court ruled on petitions charging fraud in the election that deposed him. The king wore a gray business suit and flannel hat and carried no topcoat. Not all the king’s party boarded the plane. Some bade him farewell at the shipside One Main brae Unsettled Chairman A. B.

Senator John H. Bankhead, 73, third of his family to serve on Capitol Hill in that long span, died late yesterday in the L. S. naval hospital at nearby Bethesda. Md. He ne%’er completely rallied from a stroke he suffered three weeks ago. The senate immediately recessed to honor his memory. Colleagues paid tribute to the important legislative roles he had filled since first coming to the senate in 1930. Accompanied by associates of many legislative years. Bankhead’s body will start homeward late today for funeral services Friday at Jasper. Ala. Son of a senator, brother of a speaker of the house and father of a former representative, Bankhead was perhaps best known on Capitol Hill as an advocate of farm legislation, particularly measures affecting cotton. His father. John H. Bankhead, was elected to congress in 1887, inaugurating the family’s unpre-cedently long service on Capitol Hill. A brother. William B. Bankhead, carried on the tradition, becoming speaker of the house. Then the senator’s son. Walter Will Bankhead, t<&k over representing his Alabama district in the house.

June 13, A White House parley on world problems preceded today the departure of Secretary of State Byrnes for new talks of foreign ministers at Paris. Further, President Truman added emphasis to the importance of Byrnes’ mission by arranging to drive with him to the airport. Byrnes is returning to Paris for a showdown meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Molotov and others of the Big Four — France and Britain Trnmin Lends Plea# Mr. Truman lent his own plane, commonly known as “the Sacred Cow,” to carry Byrnes and Senators Conically (D-Tex.) and Vandenberg (R-Mich) across the Atlantic. All three were summoned to the forenoon White House meeting. Meanwhile, the White House Press Secretary, Charles G. Ross, denied a report, published in England, that Mr. Truman is considering a visit to Moscow for a heart-to-heart talk with Premier Stalin in the event of failure of the Paris meeting. Such a report, Ross told hie news conference, “is news to me, it is news to the president, and I haven’t heard it discussed.” Silent on Be vin Speech Ross said Mr. Truman had no comment on the speech yesterday by British Foreign SAretary Ernest Bevin which strongly indicated British rejection of e recommendation by the Anglo-American commission for imigra-tion of 100,000 Jews into Palestine this year. Diplomatic authorities said there appears to be no doubt that the Big Four foreign ministers meeting opening Saturday will prove finally whether the great* powers are capable of settling the European peace in unity. His ace in the hole in trying to persuade Molotov to come to agreement on such critical issues as the disposition of Trieste and settlement of Italian reparations is an announced determination to carry the whole controversy to the United Nations in September if it is not settled at Paris. Trieste Stumbling Bleck American officials frankly regard this as a desperate move, justified only by the conviction here that conditions * of peace must be at least partly restored rn Europe by the end of this year. Byrnes himself is represented as feeling that the main stumbling block in the way of drafting peace treaties for Italy and Germany’s former Balkan satellites is the Soviet-Amencan controversy over Trieste. Russia backs Yugoslavia’s claims to the entire Venezia Giluia area, while the United States insists that Trieste, being overwhelmingly Italian, must got to Italy. There is some hope here that a solution may be reached along the lines of British and French suggestions for internationalizing the area under the United Nations This hope is based on the belief that the disputants may regard a compromise as preferable to a complete deadlock. Seek Long Range Agreements Beyond the question of the treaties are other proposals previously put forward by Byrnes and bv British Foreign Minister Bevin for various agreements on long range control of Germany and for the drafting of an Austrian peace treaty. Such hope for success as there is among Byrnes and his advisers is based on their belief that Russia, realizing the determination of the United States and Britain to get peace settlements one way or another, will make substantial concessions in order to maintain unity among the powers.
