Beckley Raleigh Register (Newspaper) - September 16, 1958, Beckley, West Virginia Ike, Rogers Map Integration Strategy Today Gov. Orval Faubus holds U. S. marshals' warning sign. It reads: Deputy Inked States Marshals wearing special arm hands and other identifcation are on OFFICIAL duty in this vicinity. They are assisting in the execution of orders of the FEDERAL COURT. Any person interfering with or obstructing Deputy Marshals in the performance of their duties is liable to CRIMINAL PROSECUTION under FEDERAL LAW. — BEAL KIDD, United States Marshal; OSRO COBB, United States Attorney. Little Rock Students Attempt To Enroll In Other Schools LITTLE ROCK. Ark. (AP' -Hundreds of anxious parents ca*t about today for a way to get their teen-agers into high schools somewhere as the Faubus-federal integration battle seemed to shape up as a waiting war of nerves. The four Little Rock high schools, scheduled to open yesterday. remained closed on authority of Gov. Orval E. Faubus, who was empowered by the legislature to shut them to avoid forced integration. A predicted legal clash failed to materialize. It appeared that the federal government might make no move until the governor attempts to reopen the schools on a segregated basis. Faubus ha.? not indicated his next move. Except for the burning of two crosses and a Negro in effigy, the day passed in comparative calm. There was much speculation that edgy parents and students were mounting pressure to have the schools reopened on any basis. The governor denied this and said public sentiment for his stand against integration is stronger than ever. Scores of students were trying to get into schools elsewhere, however. Apparently few had any success because of crowded conditions in other cities. Supt. E. F. Dunn of Pulaski County estimated that 150 to 200 Little Rock students had made inquiry to him about entering a county school, outside the Little Rock district. Adjacent North Little Rock, where no integration has been ordered, refused all applicants. Pine Bluff, 40 miles away, turned down a request by mothers who planned a daily car pool. The school board is studying a proposal for television classes. Tile city’s three commercial TV stations agreed -to cooperate if the plan is adopted. The school board’s announce- cxtracurricular activities would be suspended in Little Rock \yhile the schools were closed was expected to increase agitation to bring the conflict to a climax. The board said it knew of no plan bv which the four high schools—three white and one Negro—could be reopened as private institutions and retain accreditation. The latter is important to students planning to go to college. Faubus told newsmen he was studying a plan for reopening the high schools as private schools but also said it was passible that they would remain closed until a public referendum Oct. 7. This vote would be on the question of whether the people wanted the schools reopened on an integrated baeis. Charlottesville Asks Reprieve In Court Plea RICHMOND. Va. CAP) - Lawyers for tile city of Charlottesville go before U.S. Circuit Judge Simon Sobeioff today seeking a reprieve from an integration order that would close two of the city’s largest schools, The conference with Sobeioff in Baltimore appeared to offer the city its last avenue of escape from compliance this month with the order signed last week by U.S. Dist. Judge John Paul. Should Sobeioff decline to stay the order directing the enrollment of two Negroes in Lane High School and IO in Venable Elementary School, closure of both schools under Virginia law would be all blit assured. Tile two schools are scheduled to open next ment that all football and other Monday. Sobeioff last Thursday refused to stay an order by Judge Paul directing the admission of 22 Negro children to Warren County High School, about 80 miles northwest of Charlottesville. As a result, the 1.000-pupil high school at Front Royal—only high school in the county-was shut down. lr. Norfolk, where six schools are threatened with closure it was revealed that a number of Norfolk secondary school pupils have been enrolled in South Norfolk schools, each paying $180 tuition. The Norfolk school board, in compliance with a federal court order, has told U.S. Judge Walter Hoffman it is prepared to enroll 17 Negro students in white schools at their opening next Monday. Area Men Held As Moonshiners Two East Gulf men were remanded to the Raleigh County Jail today in lieu of $500 bonds for their appearance before the U. S. Southern District Federal Court in Bluefield before U. S. Commissioner W. A. Riffe. They are Lilen M. Coleman and Edgar D. Pack who were arrested Monday afternoon by agents of Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Divison of the U.S. Treasury Department on charges of operating a moonshine still. The men were arrested at Egeria bv the A and TTD men and jailed at 8:45 p.m. Monday. A 200 gallon capacity moonshine still w?as destroyed and a vehicle was confiscated. Maxwell Allen, Beckley, was remanded to the jail today in lieu of a $5 fine and costs following arraignment before Magistrate Cotton White on a charge of trespassing. Allen was arrested by a constable and City Police and jailed at 7:45 p.m. Monday on the charge. According to White, he is charged ■wadi trespassing on private property on Ellison Avenue. A con-stable jailed James Plum-by, Crow, at IO p.m. Monday on charges of non-support of his wife and children and assault and battery. Henman J. Halsey, no address listed, was released from the jail at 3:45 p.m. Monday after nonsupport charge was withdrawn by the complainant, Betty Halsey, before Magistrate T. H. Wills. Overdose Of Aspirin Hospitalizes Child Jane Bone, two and one-halfyear-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Bone Jr., Rock Creek, underwent emergency treatment at the Beckley Hospital today after taking an overdosage of aspirin. The child’s stomach was pumped, and she was admitted to the hospital for observation. Dinner Meeting Set The Raleigh County Mental Health Association will have a dinner meeting Monday at 8:30 p. rn. in die Elks Club. Stuart Gose, association president, said reservations can be made by calling Mrs. Carl Coss at CL 3-9489. Terrorists Hit Military (amp MARSEILLE, France * API -North Africans carried their campaign of terrorism inside a military camp in Marseille today and blew up a tank. One soldier was killed and six wounded. Other terrorists set a bomb under a 12-ton fuel storage tank in the city but it was discovered before it went off. A charge Monday rocked the local government headquarters, wounding four persons. Police in Le Havre reported a bomb exploded Monday night in the port area under a tanker containing sulphuric acid. Nobody was injured and damage was slight. Violence also erupted Monday night in eastern France where Europeans clashed with North Africans in three cities. Eight persons were injured. (onference Could Have Big Effect On Resistance WASHINGTON < API - Atty. Gen. Rogers today headed for a Newport, RL, conference with President Eisenhower that could have eventual far-reaching effects on Southern resistance to school integration. As of now. authoritative sources report, the federal government has no plan for any sensational or precipitate action to meet the high school closures at Little..Rock, Ark., and other delaying actions elsewhere in the South. James C. HagoHty, White House press secretary, described the Ei-senbower-Rogers conference as “a review of the integration situation to date." Washington officials saw nothing urgent in the meeting. They discounted the statement of Arkansas Gov. Orval E. Faubus, when he ordered closing of Little Rock high schools last week I to avoid integration, that the next move was up to Washington. They contend it isn’t so, that the next move actually is up to Faubus. They indicated that any federal action will await Faubus’ move. The feeling here is that Faubus must now find some method that stand up in the courts to get secondary school education under way again in hi* capital city. Federal authorities are putting some, but not total, reliance on a buildup of pressures on the part of Little Rock parents to get their teen-agers back into classrooms. At least IOO idled Little Rock students already have tried to enroll at other schools in the state. There also ie talk in Little Rock of reopening the public schools on a private, segregated basis. The Little Rock school board asked Faubus,to advise how that it could be done "with assurance of full accreditation under North Central Assn. standards.” Washington officials caid emphatically it was never the intention of the federal government to go into Little Rock and start knocking heads together. One put it this way: "A period of calmness could be a major contribution to the whole school situation at this time.” The federal position may be summarized this way: There is no existing law’ under which the federal government can force a state to operate a system of public schools. If the entire system is closed down, that's it. and the matter is closed so far as Washington is concerned. But legal authorities say a constitutional quodion may be raised in selective school closures designed to avoid obedience of a Supreme Court order. They fay that w’hen a state offers given grades of education in one area and 'withholds them in others, it may be possible to argue successfully in court that children in the latter areas are being denied the equal protection of the laws guaranted by the 14th Amendment. The Justice Department has examined with interest all of the proposals advanced thus far in Virginia and elsewhere for converting public schools into privately operated institutions. The federal experts say it would have to be a bona fide conversion to stand up in court. They expressed belief that such systems can be successfully challenged in the federal courts if it can be shown that the switch from public to private label, involving continued use of public tax monev, is simply a device to avoid obedience of the Supreme Court.

Assembly Faces Hot Potato* Issues UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP> —The General Assembly opens its 13th regular session today facing one of tho most formidable arrays of hot potato issues the U.N. has handled. Formosa seemed certain to head the list. Before debate even begins, the 81-nation body expects a battle over election of a new Assembly president. Two Arab foreign ministers—-Charles Malik of Lebanon and Ahmed Mohammed Mahgoub of Sudan—are top contenders for Equipment Stolen Thieves Put Mine Out Of Business A small truck mine operator in Hie Shady Spring district, who employs five men, is being forced to discontinue his operations after thieves carried off about $1,000 worth of mine equipment Friday night. Clarence Griffith, operator of the mine, has been unable to continue his mining operations. State Police said, since the equipment was taken. Articles taken included five i wrench. "shuttle buggy” tires, valued at $375; five gallons of gasoline; a box of mine tools valued at $50; two cases of oil costing $13; a quantity of light bulbs and auger bits; first aid equipment; a sledge hammer; 1,100 feet of cable valued at $418; 25 pounds of carbide costing $3.25; one hack-saw, hand saw, and a hatchet; a mine jack: four carbide lamps; 20 feet of two chain; a screw jack; six i 3x8x12 headers, and a large Giant Rockets Likely To Speed Space Research DETROIT (AP' — A monster team of rockets with power enough to boost a one-ton space capsule toward Mars could be within reach in little more than a year. That's the indication from the men who make powerhouses for most of the major U.S. military missile*. Scientists at Roeketdyne Division of North American Aviation, Inc., are working on two contracts for huge rocket complexes of I to U2 million pounds thrust. Either could boost a Mars-bound space bullet or land a 2.000-pound package on the moon. Spokesmen for Roeketdyne, here for a meeting of the American Rocket Society, told newsmen that the latest contract, announced last week by the Army, would be a -sort of short cut. It calls for clustering several rocket engines like those that power U.S. 1,500-mile ballistic missiles such as the Thor and Jupiter. It is the basic Roeketdyne engine that powers mast of the U.S. missile* in operation or nearing operation. The engine develops 150.000 pounds of thrust. Ten of those in a proper cluster could develop 14 million pounds of thrust. The other contract for a huge rocket engine at Roeketdyne was let this summer by the Air Force. It calls for developing from scratch a new rocket engine with up to I Vt million pounds of thrust. Four such engines bound together could carry a 31,000-pound satelite around the moon or put a 150,000-pound satellite into orbit around the earth some 300 miles high. But George P. Sutton, chief of advanced design for Roeketdyne, said that under normal conditions it might take something like five years to develop a new engine from the drawing board stage. With the Army contract calling for a cluster of already proved rocket engines, a power plant with major space capabilities could be ready within a fraction of that time, a Roeketdyne official said. He said it was conceivable that such a rocket e/igine could be proved feasible in about a year. Mount Hope Motorist Ordered Into Court Wilson Watson, 35, Mount Hope. was ordered to appear in Beckley Police Court Thursday night following his arrest at 11:05 p.m. Monday by City Police on charges of operating a vehicle without a state operator’s license or registration card.

Riots Leave One Dead PARIS < AP)—Political riots in Guinea, West Africa, left one dead and 15 injured, French government sources reported today. The riots developed during the campaign for the referendum on the new French constitution. the post now held by New Zealand’s Sir Leslie Munro. Both claim they have enough commitments to get the required simple majority. The contest springs out of July’s Middle Ea^t crisis. The United Arab Republic objects to Malik because he is regarded as pro-Western. If the two Arab leaders deadlock, the election may go to either of two dark-horse candidates — Yugoslav Foreign Minister Koca Popovic or Peru’s veteran diplomat, Victor A. Belaunde. In addition to Formosa, the Assembly is expected to give another airing to the unsettled Middle East crisis, France's dispute with Algeria, the British-Greek-Turkish squabble over Cyprus and the controversy over South Africa’s racial policies. Both the United States and the Soviet Union have made plain they intend to bring Formosa before the Assembly in one form or another. Secretary of State Dulles held a series of strategy conferences yesterday with top diplomats including Lebanon’s Malik: Cmdr. Allan Noble, British minister of •state; Luis Padilla Nervo, Mexican foreign minister: and Hans Engen, Norwegian deputy foreign minister. The Soviet Union is expected to make another strong bid to seat Red China in the U.N. The United States is confident it will be defeated. $20,000 lawsuit Runs Into Snag A $20,000 suit, which opened in the Raleigh County Circuit Court Monday, remained at somewhat of a standstill today a* it is not yet established who owned a car which struck and killed Billy Gene Lusher in July, 1957. The father of Lusher, sometimes known as Billy Gene Waycaster, is suing Benton Paul Surratt, driver of the car, and George A. Hall, alleged owner of the car. Hall now is serving a term in the State Penitentiary at Mounds -Ville. Grady Whitlock, president of Grady Whitlock Ford, Inc., was on the witness stand for the plaintiff for some time today in an effort to establish who was owner of the car, but it was never clearly stated. When court dismissed for lunch at noon. Ned H. Ragland, attorney for the plaintiff had spent a large part of the morning in an effort to establish whether Surratt was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Although it was definitely established one or more of the men in the company of Surratt shortly before the accident were drinking, it was never actually testified that Surratt was known to have been drinking. Nationalists Set For New Efforts To End Blockade TAIPEI. Formosa (AP' - The Chinese Nationalists tightened the news blackout pn the Quemoy islands today while working on new attempts to crack the Communist artillery blockade. New speedup methods of unloading Nationalist planes and ships at Quemoy and the parachuting of supplies to smaller islands near Quemoy were reported. More effective ways to get supplies through the curtain of shells are being sought, Premier Chen Cheng told Parliament. Four members of Parliament spearheaded a strong clamor in A daughter of the dead woman, 1 Mrs, Everett Morgan. Piemoint, said she had talked to an uncle, Earl McGraw, by telephone in Yakima. on three occasions since Sunday, and he insist* her mother was murdered. Mrs. .Morgan said lier incle accused his brother-in-law. Ted Lusk. 55. of committing the crime and admitted retaliating by attacking .•.od beating Lusk, resulting in the latter being hospitalized with both jaws broken. Mrs. Morgan is Mrs. Lusk’s daughter by a first marriage. Lusk, a former tippleman at the Maben Mine, and his wife, moved from Maben to the West Coast state last spring. He reportedly .secured work harvesting fruits and hops. The couple was residing in what relatives term ed a "cabin.” housing migratory workers. They were joined there only last week by her son, Dewey Rutherford, and his wife, Drema. former residents of Caloric. Mrs. Rutherford is credited with discovering Mrs. Lusk** death. Mr*. Lusk’s brother, Earl, and another brother, Charles, moved to the West Coast several years ago. In addition to her two children, husband, and brothers. Mrs. Lusk Is survived by her mother, Mrs. Mae McGraw. Pierpofcit; two sister*, Mrs. Stella Clay, Glen Fork and Mrs. Grace Smith. Stacy, Va.: and a third brother, Kyle McGraw, Mead. Arrangements are being made for the body to be removed to Wyoming County for burial. More Supplies Received TAIPEI, Formosa (AP) — The Nationalists got more supplies to the beleaguered Quemoys by planes and ship today, the Defense Ministry announced. It was the third straight day the Nationalists supplied Little Quemoy by air. Taipei against the U.S.-Chinese Communist talks which began in Warsaw Monday and recessed until Thursday. The talks are intended to ease Formosa Strait tension, possibly bringing an end to the bombardment of the Quemoys which began Aug. 23. But the four prominent legislators said the talks might adversely affect tile morale of nationalist troops and civilians. "How can America seek peace with the Communists when the objective of international communism is to conquer the world?” a statement by the four said. It followed numerous similar statements of Nationalist leaders urging the United States support for military action against Red China. So far the United States has limited itself to essentially defensive operations while bringing in a nuclear-armed striking force just in case. The hottest plane in the U.S. air arsenal, the F104 Starfighter, has begun to fly over Formosa as part of the U.S. protective force should fighting spread beyond the offshore islands. The American Taiwan (Formosa) Defense Command also said Marine Air Group ll. which came here for joint U.S.-Nationalist amphibious maneuvers, has been assigned to defend naval vessels. These presumably include the U.S. 7th Fleet warships escorting Nationalist supply ships to within three miles of Quemoy. Presstime Bulletin LITTLE ROCK. Ark. (AP) — Gov. Orval E. Faubus today advanced the date of the scheduled vote in Little Rock on the question of integrating the city’s schools from Oct. 7 to Sept. 27, saying "time is of the essence.” Reuther Says Union Won t Delay Strike DETROIT (AP) - United Auto Workers President Walter Reuther said today the union definitely will strike the Ford Motor Co. Wednesday if no contract settlement is made before then. Reuther wa* asked about the chance of a postponement as he entered another bargaining session with Ford. "The strike deadline stands,” he declared. "We have no intention of postponing it, but we are still hopeful we can reach an agreement.” Ford. General Motors and Chrysler yesterday made contract proposals to the union calling for a three-vear agreement. Reuther, who has personally taken part in the Ford talk* the past week, described the Ford offer as "deficient in many respects.” But he made counter proposals at a bargaining session last night and said the offer provided a basis for further discussion. UAW sources said the three contract proposals were identical insofar as economic l^ues—wages, unemployment benefits, pensions and oost of living allowances — w’ere concerned. They said the contracts differed only on minor matters involving local plant situations. Neither side would disclose specifics about the new offers. Reuther and other UAW officials criticized the general contract offered by the Big Three and said it proved that the three auto makers were engaging in industrywide bargaining. The UAW president said the fact the three offers were made within 18 minutes of each other indicated there Had been consultation among the auto makers. Ford Vice President John Bugas told new’smen it was not mere coincidence that the offers were alike. "We have perfected our intelligence since 1955. We (of the auto makers) and they I am sure use all intelligence and information we get from all sources in deciding what type of offer we can make our workers.” he said. UAW teams representing Chrs-ler and General Motors workers recessed negotiations shortly after the companies placed their contract ofter before them. Ford, faced with the strike deadline. held a night negotiating session—the 91st since contract talks began. Bugas told newsmen last night, "We still have 24 hours of intensive bargaining left before the strike deadline and we still hope for an agreement.” Reuther echoed tho<se sentiments. One big stumbling block in the companies’ latest offer ‘was their Train Coach Strewn With Dead Hoisted From Depths Of Bay bid for a three-year contract. The UAW’s recent three-vear pacts with the Big Three expired Memorial Day weekend and the union has been operating under a request of its convention that no contract be for more than two years. There was some ^indication the UAW might agree to the three-year contract if the auto makers sweetened their offers. Reds (ani Brag; They Have Own Racial Problem BUDAPEST 'AP) — Communist propagandists are fond of pointing to rare problems in the United States and elsewhere as due to capitalist corruption. Now it •seems that Communist Hungary has its own race problem — the Gypsies. Tile official party daily Nepsza-badsag has taken up the question: "Many Gypsies in Bekes County (southeast Hungary) have already broken away or are about to break away from the old fate of their race. . . . Tables, closets, bede. clean sheets are no longer missing from their homes and 'several have radios. A few families even have books on their shelves. "But most still live at the edge of the village*, in huts. These huts are only a few yards long, and often 8 or IO people sleep in them, on straw, under a single blanket. Their public health situation is not satisfactory. In courtyards only a few’ yards square the manure is piled in heaps and draws masse* of flies. Most children do not attend school. "The peasants of the village have a strong aversion to the Gypsies. . . . They know the Gypsy I does not steal from hi* neighbor. I Still, they threaten to sell their I own land rather than have a Gypsy next door. They want the Gypsies to stay at the edge of the village. The Council chairman knows that giving land at ’he edge of the village for a new and more modern Gypsy quarter with better houses Is in opposition with our principles, since it does not lead to equality but to segregation. Still, he gives way to the pressure of the village—loaded with prejudice—and regards this as the best solution. “If the Gypsies see.” concludes the article, "that not only do prejudices disappear but that they get sincere and effective support for their progress, their love of work will grow and they will more easily accustom themselves to the new way of life.” ELIZABETH. N J. 'AP) - A tricky hoisting operation early today recovered a Jersey Central commuter coach bearing 13 bodies from the swirling waters of Newark Bay. The railroad estimates that 40 persons died yesterday when a five-car commuter train, pulled by two locomotives, hit an open drawbridge on a trestle over the bay and knifed into the water. Twenty bodies have been recovered so far. Thirty-three others were injured. Tho locomotives and three of tile five coaches came to rest on the silty bottom. One of the coaches dangled over the water long enough for its passengers to scramble to safety and then plunged in. The raised coach, little damaged outwardly, was a shambles inside, strewn with luggage and bodies. It was towed on a flat barge to the Bayonne Naval Depot. The bodle* were taken to the Bayonne morgue for identification. Among bodies identified today were those of George * Snuffy) Stirnw’eiss, 39, former New York Yankee star second baseman; and How’ard W. Huntington, 54, a statistician of the New York Times financial new’s department for 33 years. Among the missing and presumed dead wa* Elton Clark. 71. a director of Allied Chemical & Dye Co., one of the nation’s biggest corporations. Stirnweiss, father of six children, lost his life as the result of a split-second stroke of fate — he had swung aboard the train at’the last moment just as it was pulling out of Red Bank. The train, with IOO passengers aboard, apparently ran three warning signals. It ripped through an automatic derailing device that jerked it from the rails but failed to 6top it. Jersey Central President E T. Moore called it an unexplained accident. Four of six crewmen aboard the train d.cd, including engineer Lloyd Wilburn, 63. P«ed Bank, N.J. Skin divers, Navy underwater specialists and surface vessels recovered some bodies that floated free of the wreckage. One of the first rescuers on the •scene, boatman Ed McCarthy, said: "I tell you I never want to see anything like this again. It comes back to me how horrible it must have been for those people trapped under the water.” The train had made its way without incident along the north Jersey shore toward Jersey City and the ferry Terminals to New York City. En route it picked up New York-bound business executives. Wall Streeters and weekend vacationer* headed back from the shore. The body of Mayor John Hawkins, 51. of Shrewsbury, was among those in the recovered coach. Authorites said some negotiable bonds was found in the car. Mas. Hawkins had told police that Hawkins, a New York stock broker. had Ie:t home with 250,090 in negotiable bond*. WEATHER WEST VIRGINIA Mostly cloudy with showers tonight and Wednesday.
