Justice John M. Harlan delivered the unanimous decision. In litigation that began in 1956, the Montgomery County (Ala.) Circuit Court on Dec. 29, 1961 permanently enjoined NAACP from conducting intrastate business in the state. The ban was on the ground the NAACP had failed to register as a foreign-out-of-state—corporation. Alabama’s Supreme Court on Feb. 28, 1963 affirmed the Circuit Court order, without considering the merits of the case. The State Supreme Court said this was necessary because the NAACP had failed to satisfy rules as to the manner in which law briefs should raise assignments of error. The NAACP appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, contending it had been deprived of constitutional freedom of association, and due process and equal protection or law. The state in reply said the NAACP had been given full op- County Records Double Fatality I Death and wreckage, spawned by heavy holiday traffic, marred Tuscarawas County’s Memorial Day weekend. A mother of IO and her daughter are dead. The State Patrol alone reported 16 mishaps within the last 72 hours, including several in which serious injuries resulted despite an extra effort by law enforcement agencies to halt the carnage. -DEATHS-- -MISHAPS- Two Died In This Wreckage Friday On Route 39 Legionnaire Calls On Living To Remember Fighting s Dead Merle F. Brady of Van Wert, 0., called on the living to pick up the banner of courage, truths and liberty in memory of the' fallen war dead in Memorial Day addresses in Dover and New Philadelphia. The national American Legion committeeman told the approximately 200 persons gathered in Dover’s Maple Grove and New Philadelphia’s Fair Avenue cemeteries that Memorial Day should have a great significance to all Americans in that the free dom they now enjoy came at a high price—the lives of servicemen and servicewoman. “Prompt and courageous action and attitude is needed now from the living to keep intact the principles which stand for America and for which so many died,” he said. “Peace has not been won. We must keep up our guard. The Communist peril, in Asia, Africa and in Cuba is a growing one. We in the Legion warned, against Cuba’s Castro when he came to power. Today we are fighting on many fronts. “The greatest threat is that new sacrifices will be made for freedom to survive. We must be armed with courage, such as that of Abraham Lincoln. We believe there is no compromise price for liberty. “We have called attention to the little retreats and small surrenders.

The county’s eighth and ninth traffic victims are Mrs. William (Mattie) Burkholder, 37, of RD 2, Sugarcreek, and her 15-year-old daughter, Sovilla. Both died in Canton Ault man Hospital as a result of injuries sustained when their car slammed into a bridge abutment on Route 39, west of Dover, at 1:15 p.m. Friday. According to the driver, Daniel Hershberger, 70, of RD 2, Walnut Creek, an approaching car was left of center, causing him to veer off the road and into the bridge. Patrolmen said the other motorist did not stop. Mrs. Burkholder, Sovilla and 3 other children, David, IO, Lucy, 8, and Caroline, 7, along with Hershberger, were taken to Union Hospital. The mother and daughter were then transferred to Aultman where Sovilla died at 3:05 in the emergency room. Mrs. Burkholder died Saturday afternoon. Stark County Coroner G. IL Shahen ruled both deaths were caused by skull fractures and severe cranial hemorrhages.

Mrs. Elizabeth Ernest, also 80, received severe face and hand lacerations. All were admitted to Union Hospital. Adkins was listed as “fair” this morning See MISHAPS, Page ll Belated Total Will Surpass Current 415 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation’s traffic deaths during the Memorial Day week* end—more than 400—hit a record high for a three-day observance of the holiday. The death toll on the highways from 6 p.m. local time Thursday to midnight Sunday was 415. Belated reports were expected to boost the final figure. The record toll for the first holiday weekend of the spring topped the previous high mark of 371 set over the Memorial Day period in 1958. The National Safety Council had made a preholiday estimate that between 410 and 490 persons might be killed in traffic accidents during the 78-hour period. The heaviest toll was Sunday as millions of motorists jammed highways headed for home after outings. Reports indicate nearly 150 persons were killed in traffic accidents in the final 24 hours of the holiday period. Traffic fatalities during the holiday period compared to 418 traffic deaths during a nonholiday weekend of 78 hours, from 6 p.m. Thursday, May 14 to midnight Sunday, May 17. The Associated Press survey for the nonholiday period also showed 23 deaths in boating accidents and 73 persons drowned, a total of 514. Boating deaths during the holiday period totaled 16 while 40 persons drowned.
