Calvin ,T Downey and Melvin K. Sanders, sought the writ. The majority opinion, written bv Associate Justice Ed F. McFaddin, snid the question hinged on whether members of tin; state police nre "stat» officers." State officers can be sued only in the county of official residence.

Dr. .Raymond Walters, president of the University of Cincinnati, reported today. Dr. Walters, in his annual statistical enrollment survey for school and society, educational weekly, said that although attendance figures as of Nov. 1 in 726 approved universities and colleges wer,o slightly above 1047, they represent a sharp check to the " growing pains" trend higher education has experienced since the discharge of World War 11 veterans. The reporting institutions, Dr. Walters .said, had 1,931,79 students—-1,580.783 full-time and 351,- HiC part-time. Based on 674 institutions supplying exactly comparable statistics these figures repre sent an approximate increase of only nine-tenths of one per cent in tenths of one per cent in full-time attendance and 4.5 per cent in part- time attendance he said. As compared with 1947, there are about 10 per cent fewer freshmen, a recession in new students which may be continued next year. Dr. Walters reported.

King disclosed that he conferred with ICasf Tennesse racing enthusiasts who he said are behind a move to build a race track in the Nashville area. "The benefits of a racing law c;.n and will provide revenue to this slate," King said. "It will pay veterans, for example, a bonus to which they are certainly entitled, without increasing the burden of, taxation on groups of others. "A correctly operated racing plant is an asset, but such a plant in Tennessee should be controlled by a racing commission composed of men and women who know something about racing. "We have gone into the entire racing picture from top to bottom and we find that properly handled (and managed, it can be run hon estly and in turn benefit our com munity and state, and that it will not draw from other industries, but keep money in circulation, bring in fresh money and tend lo reduce our individual taxes." In recent months the cily admin istration turned thumbs clown against a proposed race track at West Memnhis. Ark. King said that the revenue in Tennessee is needed. "We can build as fine a track as is proposed for Nashville," King said, "and we can cooperate at the same time wilh Ihe people of east ern Tennesee in Ihe development of their enterprise that our entire state may gain." 2.00 2.00 2.00 .75 5.00 2.00 jupsurge peeled, creased larger classes high school graduating* about I9GO, he predicted. tribution for as much as possible.

Dec. 20 — (/P) — A move lo overhaul the senate Republican leadership because of the GOP's election defeat ran into stout resistance today from veteran party chieftians. These veterans, headed by Senator Tait of Ohio, seemed likely to hold out to balking younger members only the hope of a 'shufilc of top ranks and possibly more representation in orming policy. There were indications ihat unless the insurgents rally their forces quickly, the veterans may organize majority support among Ihe 42 Republican senators for a lineup like this: Taft as chairman of the GOP policy committee. Senator Millikin of Colorado as minority floor leader, a place now filled temporarily by Senator Wherry of Nebraska. Senator Vandenberg of Michigan as-,chairman of the conference of all Republican senators, a post that Millikin has been filling. Wherry as parly whip, or assistant floor leader; Told that this lineup was being discussed. Senator- Aikc-n of Vermont—one .of those most vocal in demanding a '.'L-iboral'.' party leadership—declined direct comment. Aiken. indicated, however, Ihat he would not oppose-Taft's retention of the policy post, a move Which would require a majority vote of the Republicans lo change their present rules. "Taft is not as conservative as his critics would like lo have the world believe." Aiken commented. Senator Ives of New York, one of those mentioned as a possible candidate for a leadership post, told a reporter he is "not even remotely interested" in seeking such a job at this time. Aiken snid lie would propose in the Republican conference-- which Taft sairl probriblv will meet as soon a.s the new congress convenes —that it revise its makeup to include one lop ranking member from each of the senate's la committees. The committee now is composed of nine members, with a rule that none can serve n-.ore than four years continuously. Taft has been chairman since 10-14. -e guests I tolc Mrs. S. C'.

And we certainly cannot understand why some department members should imply, in a statement to ihe press, that this inquiry wa~, about to die for lack of evidence while, on the same day, others were telling the press that the whole thing was "loo hot" to discuss. Some people in the department apparently would like the public to forget tho whole thing, while otners would like lo keep the pubic^in tho dark. But this is tho public s business. And it is scarcely within the province of the Justice Department, which is legal representative of the whole people's government, to cover up for anybody The department's concern is with justice, not with whose toes eel stepped on. This contradiction should be cleared, up.

Mail Now, Only 5 Days to Christmas Last call was sounded today by Postmaster Robert M. Wilson for patrons wishing to have Christmas cards and gift parcels delivered to cities any distance by Christmas Day. Emphasizing' that only five days remain unlil Christmas, the local postmaster warned late mailers that air mail and air parcel post facilities should be used exclus- ivcly. Otherwise, due to the unpr.e-.. cedentcd volume of mail now in transit, gifts traveling by slower methods face the probability of not reaching their destination in ample time. He pointed out that mail going hy air will reach any city, in the United Slates overnight, and in some instances \vill reach overseas points in 2>1 hours, particularly-, to United Slates possessions and territories as well as Canada, Mex-. ico and Cuba. There is an average lapse .of only ' seven seconds between lanclings-or- takcoffs of scheduled mail planes flying over the 127.000 miles of domestic routes, according to Postmaster Wilson, while overseas bound pianos leave every 30 rain-., utes.
