PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Coplon Attorney Again is Fined Second Contempt ^Charge Leveled at ^ Defense Counsel By Karl R. Bauman WASHINGTON', June 3. <m — Federal Judge Albert L. Reeves yesterday fined Archibald Palmer, defense attorney in Judith Coplon's espionage trial. $100 for "obvious contemptuous conduct." K, was the second such fine-levled the fast-talking New York attorney since the start of the trial April 25. As in the case of the earlier con- te"mpt penalty, Judge Reeves stipulated that the fine be paid after the end of the trial. .Ye-stfrday's fine grew out of Palmer's persistent questioning of T, Scott Miller, Jr., an FBI agent, i 'Palmer was questioning Miller, about 12 papers found in Mis. 1 ; Cop-: Ion's purse when she was arrested in New York March 4 with Valentine A. GubiU'hev, a Hussion. , The government introduced num- eVous other papers from the handbag as evidence but John M. Kelley, Jr., a government prosecutor, said the 12 were omitted "on the grounds of the security of the United States." Palmer asked Miller if he personally selected the 12 papers not put in evidence, The FBI agent replied that he had nothing to do with determining what was to oe used In the case, To Appeal Fines \ Kelley objected to further questioning along this line and Judge Reeves upheld him. Palmer, however, kept asking substantially the same questions, and Judge Reeves kept sustaining Kelley's objections. Palmer started to say something about Judge Reeves' realizing- the importance of his questions "to the country's future" but Judge Reeves cut in: • L "Mr. Palmer, I must fine you Sgain." i The 15-year old, white hatred Judge from Missouri then leaned over the bench and quietly directed the clerk to prepare an orrie fining Palmer $100 for his "obvious contemptuous conduct." s Palmer, obviously taken by surprise, had less to say than usual. He told Judge Rceve.s that he had not yet received a formal order on the first fine, and asked that such orders be prepared in both cases. The judge assured him that this frill be done. • "I want to 'take an appeal on both fines," Palmer said. ; WARNING ORDER i In the Chancery Court, Chlcka- W»ha District, Mississippi County. Arkansas.

W,— The argument In the Soulhern Pr^byterian Church over reunion with the northern church is expected to blossom again In local areas during the coming year. The southern group, known as the Presbyterian Church in the US., ended Its 89th general a.ssemb- y here Wednesday after agreeing to Increase cooperation with the northern church. The decision to cooperate with the Presbyterian Church In the U,S.A. (northern), apparently paved the way for re-agitation of the whole re-union' question. The controversial issue had been hanging quietly since last year's general assembly placed a five-year moratorium on re-union plans. At least hall a dozen commissioners (delegates) said Wednesday's action negated the moora- torium. As a result, they added privately, they now feel that they are free io campaign against reunion openly in their presbyteries. The assembly during its final day "accepted" a report contending that good Christians should protect the basic rights of al! men, white and Negro. FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 19W Employment Data Foundation for Security Records If practice makes perfect, the Social Security Administration should have some excellent bookkeepers on Its Accounting Operations Division payroll in Baltimore, Maryland. The Social Security Administration's claim of, being the world's largest bookkeeper Is based on keeping up with more than 90,000,000 Social Se- cutrity accounts. Like all bookkeeping firms, however, the Social Security Administration sometimes finds that its accounts won't balance. Social Security bookkeeping, according to Lem E. Bradford, manager of the Jonesboro Social Security Administration Office, is based on Information turned In by employers on their Social Security tax returns. "When John Smith Is reported without a number or with a wrong number, al) the accounting machines in our Baltimore oflice can't tell which one of the tens of thousands ol John Smiths on our books should get credit for those wages. And, until we get John Smith's correct number from his employer, no one is going to get credit for them."
