This would amount to "rpVIIIIJ dismissal of the suit. The board also asked that Ike ppoints Brooks Hays To TVA Board WASHINGTON (AP) _ Presi- lent Eisenhower yesterday select- id Brooks Hays, former Arkansas :pngressman, to fill a vacancy on ihe board of directors of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Hays immediately said he would accept the $20,000 a year post. White House sources said he had not applied for the job. -- Hays, 6J, will replace Frank J. Welch, who resigned recently. His lerm expires May 18, 1960. "I will be glad to. undertake the assignment which the president has asked me to take," Hays said. "It will bring me in close proximity wilh my home slate." Hays, a Democrat, served eight terms in the House before he was defeated last fall by Dr. Dale Al ford, a staunch segregationist. Recently, he has been devoting his time to church work as president of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Chattanooga Tunes predicted Hays' 'appointment Tuesday nighl.The newspaper called Hays a "friend and supporter of TVA." Hays has generally supportec TVA proposals. White House Press Secretary James Hagerty said Hays nomination would go to the Senate for confirmation soon. Sen. J. \V. Fulbright' (D-Arkl said he was pleased at the selection. "Hays' experience in the de ,velopment of the Arkansas River program will be extremely help ful to him and I am confiden; he will do an outstanding job." Sens. Albert Gore and Este! Kefauver, Tennessee Democrats and representatives of the are- most directly affected by TVA said they did not know in advance of the appointment and had no specific objections to it. Would Help Tibet SEOUL, Korea Uf> — A thousan< South Korean war veteran three-judge federal court, already assigned to hear the case May 4, be dissolved as the plaintiffs had not stated a federal question "of ;ubstance." The board said three Negro students, on whose behalf the suit was filed, had not exhausted administrative remedies available to hem under the Arkansas pupil placement act of 1956. Earnestine Dove, 16, James E. Warfield, 13, and Corliss Smith. 12, are seeking to enroll in the all-white Dollarway High School. They now attend the Townsend Park High School for Negpres. The two schools are the only ones operated by the Dollarway board. Bach has about 1,200 students. 'The plaintiffs apparently assume that as a result of the Brown decisions (U. S. Supreme Court desegregation decisions), color is a magic key that automatically unlocks all entrance doors to pub lie schools and that color ipso facto gives the child or its parents an unbridled discretion in the matter of choice of schools." The board said that in its reading of the Brown decisions it could hot find "any pronouncement that the Negro is' to be permitted to run rampant through the federal courts, ignoring rad- itiorial rules of procedure and provisions for appellate review, anc to drag with him through the courts and into bankruptcy a n j school district that he capriciously selects." Woman Tries To Locate Sister pledged today to join any forci formed to help the Tibetan upris ing against the Chinese Commu nists.
