The U. S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals declared Mississippi Lt. Gov. Paul B. Johnson in contempt of court Saturday for his part in blocking Negro James H. Mere- dith from the University of Mis- sissippi. The three-judge panel of the court ordered Johnson fined a day unless he shows by 11 a.m. Tuesday that he intends to cooperate with court orders prohibiting interference with Meredith's enrollment. The same court, with eight judges sitting in, convicted Mis- sissippi Gov. Ross Barnett of con- tempt Friday for stopping Mere- dith. It ordered him fined a day and taken into custody if he fails to purge himself of con- tempt by 11 a.m. Tuesday. The court did not order John- son taken into the present circumstances-even if he fails to purge himself. But it did say that if Johnson acts in place of the governor in violation of court orders he would be committed to custody of the U. S. attorney general, and his fine would be increased to a day. Neither Johnson nor. Barnett appeared at their show-cause hearing. The brief hearing in advance of the ruling was almost replay of the legal maneuvering in the same court room Friday involv- ing Barnett. John Doar of the Justice De- partment told the three-judge panel that Johnson is clearly in contempt for stopping Meredith, 29, and federal marinate at the Rec BODY, M, Cel. 1 Ole Miss lirt WtdnenUy. Army troops were being assem- bled on the edge of Mississippi to move into the state if necessary to enforce federal court orders to enroll Negro James H. Meredith in the University of Mississippi. The White House, after an- will address the nation by tele- vision and radio Sunday at p.m. EST issued this statement at midnight EDT: "The President talked today with the governor of Mississippi on three separate oc- asions. "The President was unable to receive from Gov. Barnett satis- factory assurances that law and order could or would be main- tained in Oxford, Miss., during the coming week. The President is therefore federalizing the units ot the Mississippi National Guard Army and Air, in case they are needed to enforce the orders of the federal court. "Telegrams have been dis- patched tonight so that these units will be available for service Mon- day." Acting Press Secretary Andrew T. Hatcher said papers required to complete the orders would be signed by Kennedy Saturday night. It was understood Maj. Gen. Creighton Abrams, who has con- ferred with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy this week on the poten- tial need for troops in the Mis- sissippi desegregation crisis, prob- ably will be sent to that state. National Guardsmen are under the jurisdiction of their respective states until ordered into federal service. A White House spokes- man said the Mississippi Guards- men will be under the command of their present general. The Mississippi National Guard consists of approximately men of which all but are Army troops. At a late hour, the federal gov- ernment began marshaling its forces and orders went out to send Army units to stand by at the Memphis, Tenn., naval air station miles from the campus of the university at Oxford, Miss. Kennedy arranged with the net- works to speak to the nation at At 10 p.m. Saturday night, the Army received orders to assemble a force of troops at the Memphis base for use in Mississippi in the event it becomes necessary. The Pentagon did not identify the units or the size and makeup of the force it was sending to Tennessee. But some units, identi- fied as military police, were among the first flown in.

A close friend of the Oder fami- ly who went to Baird to identify the bodies said the force of the collision "nearly split the 1961 Falcon in half."
