Beckley Raleigh Register (Newspaper) - June 19, 1963, Beckley, West Virginia 1863West Virginia Centennial Edition 1963 ♦    -V,# A Raleigh County contribution to the West Virginia Centennial Parade In Charleston Thursday will be this 1890 model courting buggy owned by Mr. and Mrs. Grady Whitlock, Beckley, above. The vehicle win represent the Raleigh County Horseman's Association in the ll a. rn. Statehood Day parade. The Whit locks will also show the buggy and the horse "Billy Boy" in Beckley'* Centennial Parade at 2 p. rn. Saturday, and at the Henry Ford Centennial Parade in Dearborn, Mich., June 29. Built in Lynchburg, Va., the vehicle was purchased recently by Whitlock and completely refinished. It originally was built to order for the late C. A. Crkkenburger, a pioneer businessman in Lewisburg. It has a 30-inch seat, red velvet upholstery, built-in foot warmer and a trunk compartment in the back. It is painted in black and maroon, and the fringed leather top folds back in the fashion of modern convertible automobiles. Atty.    Cen. Robertson, Six County Prosecutors Initiate Action Mew Attack Filed Against Reapportionment Measure CHARLESTON r UPI» — State Attorney General C Donald Robertson and prosecutors from six West Virginia counties asked the Kanawha County Circuit Court Unlay Ut declare unconstitutional the reapportionment act passed by the UMM Legislature. A similar suit is currently in U. S. District Court but Robertson said he believed the correct procedure is to seek relief in state courts first and in federal courts only as a last resort. "Our office believes that when this pending case is finally deter- ; mined by the federal courts, we will be advised that the petitioners should have exhausted all | stat* remedies before seeking relief from the federal courts,” Robertson said. Robertson announced the move Tuesday at a news conference also attended by prosecutors jJames T Dailey Jr., Preston I County; J. Park McMullen Jr., j Brooke County; J. Zone Summerfield, Fayette County; Oval Damron, Logan County; Earl M Hall, Boone County, ami Paul E. Parker Jr., Marion County. The Federal Court suit was filed last December by the Kanawha County Court against various state and county officials, including Gov W. W Barron, House Speaker Julius W. Singleton, Morgantown, and Senate President Howard W. Carson. Fayetteville. Robertson, who is representing the defendants in the federal suit, said he believes it will take "approximately two or more years to bring this litigation to a final determination before the U. S. Supreme Court." He has asked that the federal suit tie dismissed on grounds the plaintiffs have not exhausted their remedies in state courts and thus have no right to maintain a suit in federal court. The State Constitution provides that representation in both the House ami Senate should be on a population basis, and that any county with less than three-fifths of the average population-per-delegate is not entitled to a separate House seat. The 1963 Legislature continued to ignore the "delegate district’’ provision and attempted to equalize Senate representation by giving Kanawha County four senators in two “replicate" districts. Robertson said a declaratory judgment by the circuit court would decide: -—Whether each county of the state is entitled to at least one member of the House of Delegates, regardless of its relative population size. —Whether replicate districts can tx.* used in apportioning the State Senate, whereby senatorial districts are superimposed one upon the other. —How great may be the difference in population between senatorial districts without violating the Suite Constitution?

SALZANO CHARLESTON (UPI) - Thousands of excited West Virginians, residents of a unique state tx>rn during the heat of the Civil War IOO years ago, got ready today to greet their second century with a slam-bang celebration featuring a brief appearance by President Kennedy. The proclamation making West FDP Jr. Hears Barron's Plans To Boost Region CHARLESTON (UPI) - The spirit of the Peace Corps and a New Deal approach are embodied ip the intent of the President’s Appalachian Regional Commission, Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., said here Tuesday during a one-day conference with state officials. The meeting lietween Gov. W. W. Barron and state officials and Commerce Under Secretary Roosevelt and about 15 federal officials was climaxed by Barron’s presentation of proposals for the Mountain State under an Appa-lachian-devehement program. Barron suggested that efforts be made to: —Increase West Virginia coal exports by three-to-five million tons annually. —Provide $15 million federal funds for early construction of the proposed 165-mile Highland Scenic Highway between Germania, Grant County, to Richwood. ■—Speed planning and funds to begin construction of the Justice, Wyoming County, and East Lynn fkxxl control dams and acceleration of all flood-control work in the state. —Support pending legislation providing up to 50 per cent of the funds for acquiring land and developing water resources for out-door recreation. Long-range proposals include; —Federal emphasis on future industrial and tourism growth when planning new highways in Appalachia. —A re-evaluation of the government’s strategic .storage needs with the possibility of using the state’s limestone caverns for such purposes. —A revision of requirements for local participation in watershed development projects.

Barron; Virginia 'Delia' In Stitches From Too Real 'Honey' Scene A too dramatic touch of realism in the "Honey In The Rock" dress rehearsal Tuesday turned into an occupational hazard with painful results for Mrs. Louise Griswold, wife of the First Christian Church pastor, who plays Delia Morgan in the drama. One of th* young players in th* attack scene in which John and Delia Morgan ara killed panicked when he was late firing his weapon and shot at Mrs. Griswold instead of away from her. The wedding struck her in the back, burning her and necessitating five stitches. In spite of her wounds Mrs. Griswold — in the true theater tradition — appeared on a local station radio program this morning. Atty. Gen. Robert Y. Button; chairman G. Wayne Smith, Fairmont, of the Centennial Historical Committee, and Dr. Mordeoai Johnson, president emeritus of Howard University in Washington, D. C.

The other will be sold at auction at the Centennial coin (See "Centennial" Page 2) JFK's Speech’ To Be 'Topical' WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Kennedy’s address at Statehood Day ceremonies Thursday in Charleston, W. Va., will probably be confined to “topical" matters concerning West Virginia’s Centennial celebration, according to Press Secretary Pierre Salinger. Salinger said Tuesday that Kennedy will leave by helicopter from the White House lawn at 9:50 a m. Thursday for the trip to Charleston. He is to leave Washington National Airport aboard lbs Air Force DOR transport plane at IO a.m. for the second leg of the journey He will arrive at Charleston airport at 11:15 a m. and deliver his address beginning at ll:35 a m. Kennedy will Who motor back to Kanawha Airport for a 12:15 p.m. departure on the return trip. Salinger also saki the President More Troops Than Believed Out Of Cuba! WASHINGTON (UPI) - High administration officials said today they had evidence that many more Soviet troops had been removed from Cuba than had been publicly known. They said intelligence information also indicated that Russia’s four groups of combat troops in Cuba—previously totaling 5,000 to 8,000 men—had either been par-oved or dispersed into But the administration is not sure of its information. There are disputes among U.S. experts how to evaluate it. Some officials, concerned daily with Cuban policy, appear not to have been given ail the information known to the White House. The first official report of the new information came from accounts of a private "background" briefing that Secretary of State Dean Rusk gave a group of newsmen, who invited him to dinner Monday night. Rusk’s report has now been leaked through a number of channels and essentially confirmed by several administration officials. Rusk gave no numbers. But he said there was evidence of a "substantial sending out" of Soviet forces in Cuba to a greater extent than the public has been told. The last public report iii any detail by the administration on Soviet military strength in Cuba Moratorium On Demonstrations WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Kennedy sent Congress an "imperative” package of strong civil rights legislation today and appealed for a halt in racial demonstrations while the program is under consideration. He submitted a series of proposals designed to end discrimination in jobs, voting, schools and access to restaurants, hotels and other accommodations. And he urged Congress to stay in session as long as necessary to enact the program, warning that the alternative "will be continued. if not increased, racial strife." "Enactment ... at this session of the Congress—however long it may take and however troublesome it may be—is imperative." he declared in a 5,500-word special message to the House and Senate. Common Sense Approach The President said his legislative proposals were based on "common sense aud common justice," and added: "Rancor, violence, disunity and national shame can only hamper our national standing and security.” Kennedy deplored the rash of street demonstrations and pa- MGSOOW (UPI)—The world’s j Miss Tereshkova, a 26-year-old nounced as having landed by par- rades that ^ave been led by Ne-first man and woman space team1 bachelor girl, spent about three itch lite close to their craft rn a. »ro integration leaders in recent returned to earth safely today, days orbiting the earth in a flight j region south of Karaganda. , months in such cities as Bir-First to land was Valentina that was longer than that of all gy (be time Miss Tereshkova m!n£bai?l Philadelphia, Jackson.
