Advocate (Newspaper) - September 18, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 134 TELEPHONE HI 1-1491 Rights Act Part Ruled Not Legal Accomodalious Law Involved BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) A three-judge federal panel expressing concern over spread ing congressional powers declared unconstitutional Thurs day a section of the Civil Rights Act as applied to a Birmingham restaurant. The Justice Department said 11 would appeal the decision to Uie U.S. Supreme Court. The judges referred spccili cally lo interstate commerce in issuing a temporary restraining order preventing Acting U.S Ally. Gen. Nicholas Kalzenbach from enforcing the public ac eommodalions section of the law against Ollie's Barbecue. Violated Fifth Restricting its ruling fa Uie Birmingham restaurant, Uie panel held thai (he Justice De- partment violated the Fifth Amendment in applying the jiublic accommodations secUon against Ollie's. "We Ihe pane held, Title II of the Civi Rights Act of 1964, as applied to OIlJo's was beyond the compe- tence of Congress lo enacl, and Uiat its enforcement against plaijiliffs under Uie circum stances of this case would be violalive of the Fifth Amend- ment of the Constitution of the Uniled Stales, in pertinent parl reading: 'No person shall be deprived of liberty, or property, without due process of law.' Interstate Travel But Uie situation was different uian an Atlanta restaurant which was located adjacent to an interstate highway. The Bir- mingham establishment is sev- eral blocks from Uie nearest lype of interstate travel. A similar Uiree-judge panel in Atlanta bad upheld the public accommodations section of the law as it applied to a restaurant there. The Birmingham panel U.S. Dist. Judges Seybourn H Lynne and H. H. Grooms, boU of Birmingham, and Circuit Toosa, Ala. said Wat "if Congress has the naked power ?-has in Title II of this Act, mere is no facet of human behavior which it-niayr not control by mere les- dixit (mere asser 'lioii) that conduct affects com- merce when in fact it docs not do so at all, and rights of Uie individual lo liberty and proper ly are in dire peril." Seclion Upheld The owners of Ollie's, Ollic Mc Uimg Sr. and his son, Ollic Jr initialed Uie Birmingham after refusing lo serve Neg at their restaurant. The establishment is located south side. Although it is in a predominant- ly Negro neighborhood, it caters to a middle-class while clien tele. ffderal panel attacked the Civil Rights Act basis for enforcement under the inter- sfte commerce clause, noting that Congress passed the meas- ure without attaching "legisln- ive findings."

Donaho survey some of the marijuana they confiscated Wednesday night and Thursday in the arrest of two men, one of them a Victoria resident.

(Advocate Photo) Pair's Arrest Ends Marijuana Harvest By BRUCE PATTO.V Advocate Staff Writer GOLIAD The small-scale production of marijuana in Goliad County came lo a halt Thursday with the arrest of two men, one from Victoria, Sheriff F. B. Byrne said Tuesday afternoon. The two are being held in Goliad County jail, and are to be charged Friday .vith illegal possession of marijuana, Byrne said. He indicated that the pair would :iave been charged Thursday, but that Marion Lewis, county attorney, was in Aus- in attending the attorney gen- eral's conference. The marijuana harvest was carried out at the home of the Goliad County man, who is 54, who lives in a small house just east of Fannin, and approxi mately 75 yards off the Vic- ioria-Goliad highway, the sher- ff said. One Victorian A 42-year-old man living on Sasl Street in Victoria faces he same charges. Both are Vegroes. Both men were arrested about p.m. Wednesday near Fan- nin while they wore in an auto- mobile owned by Ihe Victoria man. The men had a packet of 'finished" marijuana in their possession at Die time, Byrne said. Byrne and Chief Deputy L. V. Donaho obtained a search varranl, and returned Thursday morning to the Fannin site, with' he Goliad man accompanying, hem. Additional marijuana was ound in the house, Byrne added. The Fannin man, Byrne said, contended that he thought the1 plants were okra. Byrne in- licated that he thought little of he explanation. Ample Kviclcnce The sheriff intends to prove hat marijuana plants have been rown at the side of the Fannin's rian home, on the side away rom Die highway. Roots were lug up and tagged for evidence. Byrne noted lhat for evidence, here is finished narijuana leaves, marijuana, marijuana ml, stems and roots.

(Advocate Photo) dicaled that it is unusual lo ob- tain so many different kinds of evidence in such a case. Harvest of the marijuana was probably carried out from three weeks to a month ago, Byrne estimated. He said all of the evidence obtained is marijuana, i n d i c a ti n g that leaves of no other plant, usually referred to as bad been mixed. The Victoria man, Byrne said, is believed to have been the or salesman of the marijuana. Although Ihe Goliad County Grand Jury recessed last week after completing its members may be reconvened lo consider the case Byrne said. The assistance of Victoria County Sheriff Moniie' Marshall and Chief Deputy Jim Bowden was invaluable in breaking Ihc case, Byrne said.

'Only Standing on the capilol steps, Johnson said this is a united nation in an election year, that "our only purpose still is but should another nation employ armed satellites in space, the United States will be prepared and ready to meet them. Then he said he wanted his voice heard around the world. Some officials considered the development of the new radar that can see beyond the horizon as more important than weap- ons lo knock down satellites, on the basis thai missiles are a more likely Uireat than bomb- bearing spacecraft. No Invention The President said this coun- try has no intention of putting warheads into orbit and sup- ports a United Nations ban on use of weapons of mass destruc- tion in outer space. He said "we have no reason to believe that any nation now plans to put nuclear warheads into as we havs more effective systems today. But someday, he said, an aggressor might use armed satellites to terrorize the world and the United States has acted to meet that threat. Two Systems Pulling aside the curtain of secrecy, Johnson said: "We now have developed and ieslcd two systems with the ability to intercept and destroy armed satellites circling the earlh in space. I can tell you today that Diese systems are in place, they are operationally ready, and they are on alert lo protect this nation and the free world.
