WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1969 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT VERNON. ILLINOIS 1 —K Powell Appeals Fine To Supreme Court WASHINGTON (AP) — Adam Clayton Powell's lawyers complained today to ihe Supreme Court about the $25,000 fine slapped on the New York Democrat by the House last week. They said, in a brief, that the penalty imposed on the Negro congressman for alleged past sins was unconstitutional. Moreover, they told the court in preparation for a hearing on Powell's exclusion from the House two years ago, Powell's colleagues were wrong in reducing him to freshman status. They did not say explicitly what the justices could do about all this—if anything. The way the House finally seated Powell last Friday could be considered apart from the issue directly, before the court— whether the House in March 1967 violated the Constitution by excluding an elected member who had met the qualifications established by the Constitution. Powell's seat was taken away after a select committee found him guilty of "gross miscon­ duct'' as a congressman and recommended that he be censured, fined and stripped ,of all seniority. The Supreme Court agreed last November to consider the Powell case. A hearing is expected in late February or early March. Powell's attorneys took the position that the new penalties imposed on Powell when he was seated last Friday are part of the same "unconstitutional conduct' of two years ago. Since Powell has been seated, they told the court there obviously was no need of an order to seat him. But, they said, the court should impose "conventional remedies" and afford Powell "relief." If the court is persuaded that it has jurisdiction over both actions—the one of two years ago and the one of hist Friday—it could order House employes to lift the $25,000 fine and restore Powell's seniority. Powell was a veteran of 22 years in the House and was chairman of the potent Education and Labor Committee when he was excluded. He was reelected by his Harlem constitu ents in April 1967 but did not present himself to the House. He was reelected again last November. The major portion of the brief to the court stresses Powell's al ready familiar constitutional arguments—that the House violated the Constitution by refusing to seat a "duly elected Repre sentative of the people," that voters in the 18th Congressional District of New York had been denied fair "fundamental and inalienable rights" to the free choice of their, own congress* man, and that ihe district was unconstitutionally denied representation in the House. Additionally, they said the exclusion of a congressman-eleci of a predominantly Negro dis> trict could lead to the "infer' ence" that Negro citizens had been singled out for "separate and special treatment." Only three cities in the United States had populations of more than 300,000 in 1.866 — New York, Philadelphia and St. Louis. The store thai cares...abour you!

(AP Wirephoto) By CARL HARTMAN Associated Press Writer BRUSSELS (AP) — American forces and their European allies are getting a communications satellie that will help them keep in touch on any threat from the Soviet Union. It is due to be launched from Cape Kennedy late next year. The satellite will look something like a silver-plated hatbox, some three feet across, with a stumpy antenna sticking out at the top. Its 100 to 200 pounds of electronic gear will cost about $20 million to build and shoot into orbit. Another $30 million is being spent on ground and sea stations under the authority of 14 nations of the Norm Atlantic Treaty Organization. France, though still a member of the alliance, Is not participating. NATO's satellite will enable a commander at a remote but important post in the Arctic, for example, to talk secretly and al most simultaneously with dozens of other posts. They would include not only NATO's main military headquarters near Casteau, Belgium, but also—for example—an airfield in the eastern Mediterranean or an aircraft carrier at the entrance to the Panama Canal. These are hypothetical examples: NATO is not saying where the equipment will be installed. NATO officials hope the satellite program can serve as a precedent for cooperation on other jointly used products and weapons. Costs are being shared according to an agreed table. The United States will bear 30 per cent of the cost Of the money spent on the ground stations, each participating country —except for the United States- gets back 90 per cent of its contribution in the form of production contracts for industries within its frontiers. This system is more costly and complicated than it would be if contracts were given entirely to the advanced' industrial countries, like the United States and West Germany, but it is the only way in which virtually all members of the alliance can be persuaded to work together. It also has the advantage of stimulating the electronics industry In countries where it is just beginning to develop. So well-insulated are two cryogenic fuel tanks on the Apollo spacecraft that ice cubes placed inside them would take 2% years to melt.
