Docs the arch- bishop object to this CHICAGO Trib- bne said today that Chiej- Justice Earl Warren black- balled an invitation to Vice President Nixon to join in the American Bar Assn. meeting in London in 1957. The Tribune, in a dis- patch from Washington by Walter. Trohan, said it learned that Warren told the ABA president: "If you let that fellow in, count me. out." The paper said the ABA board of governors de- bated, letting Warren out by extending the contem- plated invitation to Nixon, but finally bowed to War- en's threat because the as- sociation had formally m- the chief justice and received his acceptance. Warren was unavailable for comment. A spokesman for the Supreme Court said in Washington the chief justice had left Asheville, N.C., on a trip west The Tribune said the story of Warren's political feuding with.Nixon was de- tailed and confirmed by a former president of the ABA, who told the paper: "T do not want my name used, but if Warren sues I'll be 'A witness in court for you." Nixon had no comment on the disclosure of (he blackballing, the dispatch wid. Attorney 'David Maxwell of Philadelphia, who was ABA president at Ihe time of the' alleged backballing, asserted, "I have no com- ment on the accuracy of the story. 1 will say that 1 am. positively and un- equivocally not the past president who gave .this story to the Tribune." The Tribune said: "The latest evidence of the deep split between ihc two Californians was un- covered as the capital continued to echo amaze- ment over Warren's action in upbraiding the author of a Nixon biography al t Sunday night cocktail party here. "Warren accused Earl Mazo, author' of 'Richard of stepping 'over my body' in an effort 'to make Nixon president.' He called Mazo 'a damned liar' when the author denied in- tent to step on Warren." The Tribune quoted the chief justice as saying he was handcuffed by his high office from engaging in public controversy or in politics. It said' It had learned he had been suc- cessful in a behind-the- scenes effort to keep Nixon out of the political lime- light by barring him from the London legal meeting in 1957 where about American lawyers joined British lawyers in explora- tion of the common roots of their legal systems.
