House Board Slays Out Court Feud Doesn't Have Enough Evidence to Take Any Action in Controversy By J. TBAGLE WASHINGTON, June house judiciary committee decided today it does not have sufficient evidence to take any action in the supreme court con- troversy' involving Justices Rob- ert 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 investiga- tion." Sumners snid Jackson's criti- cism of Black, cabled to the com- mittee Monday from Nuernberg, jermany, was discussed at .ength but the concensus was ;hat the committee had no juris- diction in the matter. The committee remains free to :ake action or recommend action later, the chairman said, if any evidence should indicate the need. Three Courses Open .Even before the meeting, Sum- ners 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 "cov- ered 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 for- mal 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 pres- ent, was echoed in stronger words by his opposite number in the senate McCarran (D.-Nev.) of that chamber's judi- ciary committee pleaded" with his colleagues to "reserve judgment in 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.

The rejected monarch's moves came as Premier Alcide De Gas- peri was granted new powers as acting chief of state in a tempor- ary compromise solution of Itajy's political crisis. Military personnel at the air- port refused to discuss the king's destination but farewells, mark- ed by cheek-kissing and in several cases tears, looked final.

Earlier in the week, bloody riots had erupted in Naples, Tar- anto and Rome, provoked by Um- berto's reluctance to quit the throne until -the suprenie 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.

Byrnes Leaves For Paris And Critical Meet Expected to Hare Shew- down with Molotov on Pit- storing Peace to Europe By JOHN M. HlGiriOWER WASHINGTON, June 13, A White House parley on world problems preceded today the de- parture of Secretary of State Byrnes for new talks foreign ministers at Paris. Further, President Truman ad- ded emphasis to the importance of Byrnes' mission by arrangins to drive with him to the airport.

Ross, denied a report, published in England, that Mr. Truman if considering a visit to Moscow for a henrt-to-heart talk with Premier Sliilin in the event of failure of the Paris meeting- Such n report, Ross told news conference, "Is news to me, it is news to the president, and I haven't heard it discussed." Silent on Bevin Speech Ross said Mr. Truman had no comment on the speech yesterday jy British Foreign Er- icst Bcvin which strongly indi- cated British rejection of recommendation by the Anglo- American commission for iniigra- .ion of Jews into Palestine this year. Diplomatic authorities said .here appears to be no doubt that the Big Four foreign ministers neeting opening Saturday will jrove finally whether the great. >owers are capable of settling the European peace in unity.

Trieste Stumbling Block American officials frankly re- ;ard this as a desperate move, ustified only by the conviction icre that conditions of' pcaco nusl be at least partly restored in Europe by the end of this year. Byrnes himself is represented s feeling that the main slumb- ing block in the way of draft- ng peace treaties for Italy and ermany's former Balkan salul- tes is the Soviet-American con- rovcrsy over Trieste.
