Circuit Court of Appeals be'gan hearing contempt charges in his University of Missis- sippi desegregation case. The appeals court ordered the State College Board and three Ole Miss administrators to show cause why they should not be held in civil contempt for failing' to en- force Meredith's court-ordered ad- mission. Meredith, a 29-year-old Negro, was ready to testify. An hour before the hearing started the corridor outside the court was crowded with specta- tors. Gov. Ross Barnett of Mississip- pi, empowered by the State Col- lege Board to act as university registrar in the Meredith case, went to the Oxford campus Thurs- day and denied him admission. The Department of Justice said Barnett's action was meaningless and asked contempt citations against the 13-member board and three top administration officers of the John Four Adans Suffer Injuries In Accidents Over Weekend Four Adans were injured in weekend traffic accidents inside the city limits.

(Copr. Gen. Gea. Corp.) Russian Troika Rears Head In U.N. Session UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko was reported seeking support today for a three-man board to supplant the United Na- tions acting Secretary-General U Thant. Secretary of State Dean Rusk met briefly Sunday with Thant, strongly backed by the United States for re-election as the sole executive of the United Nations. Rusk will talk with Gromyko Tuesday. Soviet'Premier Khrushchev first told the General Assembly in 1960 that the U.N. executive should consist of three men, each with sembly after first being recom- mended by the Security Council, where the Soviet Union could veto him. The United States-came out for Thant's re-election months ago. Gromyko, talking with a reporter Friday night, declined to express an opinion about Thant. That was after Gromyko, speak- ing in the assembly's general de- bate, said the United Nations would deal more effectively with the tasks it is faced with "if the three existing main groups of states the Socialist countries, members of the Western bloc and the neutralist rep- a .veto, representing Western, resented in its leading bodies." Communist and neutralist Delegates noted that this was Ships Continue Hunt At Sea For Survivors Of Crash Of Airliner In North Atlantic Davis Williams; Lewis, dean of Dr. the Arthur College Liberal Arts; and Robert B.

Judge Sidney Mize, in a hearing at Meridian, Miss., Friday, ruled that the three school officials had no power in the case because the board had delegated power to Barnett The judge held that the board alone had 'power to enforce a federal court order to admit Meredith to the university.

(AP) Bil- lie Sol Estes, whose multi- million-dollar empire of fer- tilizer tanks, grain elevators and cotton allotments has been sold in bankruptcy, faces trial today on charges of theft, swindling and em- bezzlement. The trial of the 37-year-old fin- ancier was moved to this East Texas miles from Pecos where he directed his far-flung agricultural his lawyers -contended he could not get a fair hearing in his home- town. His appearance in District Court here comes only two days after the remains of his empire were sold in Bankruptcy Court at El Paso for S5.8 million plus in interest to Morris D. Jaffee, San Antonio financier. At one time friends estimated Estes was worth million and he testified his operations were worth million "as a going bus- iness." The 101 witnesses summoned for the trial include three of Es- tes' former business associates, Coleman D. McSpadden of Lub- bock and Harold E. Orr and Ruel W. Alexander of Amarillo.

Vatican gendarmes stood rein- forced guard as Italian police and explosive experts sought clues to the origin of two incendiary bombs found in the church Satur- day night. Had they devices could have ruined the church and destroyed its art treasures. A high Vatican source said there was little doubt .the intend- ed bombing was directed against the Ecumenical, or World- wide, Council opening in the basil- ica Oct. 11. The usual throngs of visitors were admitted today through a smaller door, under close scrutiny of Italian plainclothes police. The security moves were de- scribed as the tightest in Vatican history. The time bombs were found at the base of the tiers of. uphol- stered wooden seats installed for the prelates who will attend the council. Eight workmen who had been engaged last Saturday in the area where the explosives were found were under intense questioning. Investigators sought to estab- lish whether the two bombs were placed .by the same person who set off ah explosive in St. Pet- er's July 14 that chipped a mar- ble statue. They also examined the timing mechanism attached to one of the bombs to learn when it was set to go off. A workman found one of the bombs just after the church closed Saturday night.

Guido Hints Amnesty, Promises Elections BUENOS AIRES by triumphant army rebels, ident Jose Maria Guido set out today to bind the nation's wounds with a hint of amnesty for all and a promise of free elections. Guido went on the radio Sunday night hours after the last resist- ance crumbled in north Argentina, ending five days of armed forces conflict that shook the country. Guido himself was thrust into the presidency last March by the military high command'that took a beating from rebel forces led by Brig. Gen. Juan Carlos On- gania. Ongania accused the high com-; mand of making Guido a virtual prisoner with the aim of leading Argentina into military dictator- ship. He and his backers said they wanted to free Guido from mili- tary dictate and restore democrat ic institutions. Guido switched to the rebel side in the midst of the conflict. While he told the nation he alone would exercise the powers of chief ex- ecutive, he laid down a policy ad- vocated by the rebels. "There will be elections of new authorities within the briefest pos- sible time in free Guido declared. "This is the firm pur- pose of the government." This echoed a statement by On gariia's forces at Campo de Mayo, the nation's largest garrison, where the army rebellion began last week. Guido had promised elections by October with new officials taking office the following May. In an apparent reference to fol- lowers of ex-dictator Juan D. Peron, Guido said all sectors of the population will be free, to take part in politics provided they.ad- here to democratic principles. While proclaiming themselves anti-Peronists, a rebel communi- que said the problem of the Peron- ist-masses can-be-solved only by winning them over to democratic processes. When the Peronists won victo- ries in provincial and.congression- al elections last March, the mili- tary high command overthrew President Arturo ing Him for permitting 'Peronists to resume political activity. They installed Guido' and he nullified the election results. In the five days of fighting in- volving tanks, artillery and .jet fighters, 11 civilian bystanders were killed'and 43 wounded. Mili- tary losses were put at 3 dead and 12 wounded. Two military leaders are under Juan Carlos Loriogn, former commander in chief, and Gen. Bernardino Labayru, former chief of staff. Setting out "for form' a new cabinet, Guido called back Alvaro Alsogaray, the strong man of his government who submitted his resignation along with all other ministers last week to give the president a free Hand. In addition to the economics ministry, Alsogaray was made acting interior minister. This gives him control over the na- tion's security forces. state contends never existed. (Continued on Page Two) There were no incidents like the one that erupted 'Saturday even- ing when a passer-by tried to take a swastika flag away from a "storm trooper." On both occasions, the Nazis, carrying placards denouncing Ne- groes and Jews, were picketing a group of about 60 members of the Congress of Racial Equality, who were protesting racial segrega- tion. The incident' Saturday began when Jack Dubrousky, 37, of Farmingdale, N.J., a passer-by, tried to take the flag. A general melee ensued in which Ralph P. Forbes, Arlington, Va., re- ceived a bloody nose. Deputy Po- jlice Chief George Wallrodt bruised a knee when someone tripped him as-he headed for the fracas. George Lincoln Rockwell, head of the American Nazi party head- quartered in nearby Arlington, had left before the incident. The seven remaining'pickets were ar- rested on charges of disorderly conduct. Four were freed on bond, three remained in custody. All face trials today. Dubrousky also was charged with disorderly conduct. He was released after posting col- lateral. 49 Of 76 Are Picked From Water LONDON (AP) An in- ternational rescue fleet hauled at least 49 plane crash victims from the gale- whjpped Atlantic today and then sighted still more ter- rified survivors clinging to a raft. Planes and ships scoured the disaster area 500 miles west of Ireland where a chartered Super Constella- tion carrying American servicemen and their fami- lies ditched in darkness Sunday night after three of its engines failed one by one. Two dramatic races were in progress. In one the rescue ships and planes were desperately trying to locate the missing survivors be- fore 10-foot waves, cold and the darkness of another night could snuff out their lives. In the other efforts were being pushed to get medical attention to those already picked up, many of whom were injured and suf- fering from shock and exposure. The Cunard freighter Andania radioed that she had sighted a raft -from the ditched airliner with people aboard. The terse message from the Andania did not say how many people were aboard the raft or whether the Andania had succeed- ed yet in snatching them from the sea. But the freighter's message spurred on the many other ships and planes in the area. The Swiss ship Cele- rina took 49 survivors aboard aft- er being directed to the scene by Lt. Joseph K. Lewis, 25, of Tus- caloosa, Ala., the pilot of a U.S> Air Force CH8. Lewis arrived at the scene just as the Super Constellation was ditching. He made an accurate fix and circled the as a beacon for the planes and ships rushing to help. Bound for Germany, the Super.
