THURSDAY, APRIL 21,1649 BLYTHEVILLE (AttK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Court Sanctions Pastor's Ouster Action by Bishop Is Sustained in &iBrooklyn Dispute NEW YORK, April 21. W') — A slale supreme court justice yesterday suslalned the right of an Episcopal bishop to oust the Rev. Dr. John Howard Melish from the pul r pit he has occupied for 45 years. Justice Meier Stclnbrink acted in the case of the 74-year-old rector of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Brooklyn who challenged the right of his bishop to remove him. Dr. Melish had said from the witness stand yesterday tlv t he heartily approved the activities of his son and assistant rector, the Rev William Howard Melish. Tiie son, who denied in court yes- lerday that he was a Communist, resigned recently as the chairman of the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship. Attorney General Tom Clark had called the group subversive. The church vestry asked Bishop Jnmes P. De Wolfe of the Diocese of Long Island to remove the elder Melish. Melish stayed at his post, despite the bishop's ouster order, after members of his parisli voiced support of him. At the annual parish neeting Monday night church rs elected new vestrymen, a sh of whom support Melish. a special meeting the new vestry voted to,withdraw the original petition sent the bishop by (lie former vestry asking Melish's removal. It also declared the vestry would not comply will- the bishop's ouster order. Judge Steinbrink referred to an expected appeal of the case to a higher court.
