THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 80, 1959 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARKJ COtmiER NEWS SEVEN Nixon Says GOP Loss Will Mean 'Left Wing f Democratic Control ALBANY, N. Y. (AP) — Vice President Nixon says that if the Republicans lose control of Congress this November, it will be ruled by "left wing' forces headed by "three men on a horse riding backward." Democratic Nixon, addressing a GOP rally at nearby Averill Park last night,.lashed, at Adlai Stevenson, unsuccessful Democratic candidate for President in 1952; Stephen Mitchell, Democratic National Chairman and Sen. Wayne Morse (Ind-Ore). A. Governor Takes Hand in Delaware lion Issue New Trouble Spots Develop in Area Around Milford MILFORD, Del. C?)—Gov. J. Caleb Boggs of Delaware today sifted the recommendations of his attorney general, members of the state board of education and "many others" on what action to take in the tense school segregation situation in the southern part of the state. New trouble spots cropped up yesterday in various communities around this town of 5,700, center of the dispute for almost two weeks. Schools are being boycotted here and in surrounding communities in protest against the integration of 11 Negro students among 1,562 students registered at the elementary- high .school here. One of the Negroes has since transferred to an all-Negro school at Dover. Out of 2,074 pupils registered in schools here and in Gumboro, Ellendale, Millsboro and Lincoln, 537 reported for classes yesterday. Tonight, the National Assn. for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP), headed by Bryant Bowles, an Arlington, Va., man who has actively opposed integration in this area during the past week, will hold a meeting to call for the ouster of School Superintendent Ramon C. Cobbs. Last night in Laurel, 12 miles to the southwest, Bowles and his followers took over a meeting called by a local committee there to arrange a referendum on voter Sentiment on the issue in Laurel district schools, which have not attempted integration. Mrs. Charles S. Workman, a member of the local committee which had arranged the meeting, attempted to address the gathering, but was shouted down when she said that "under no circumstances" should there be a boycott of schools in Laurel. At the height of the noisy in terruption, Bowles, a 34-year-old ex-marine, stepped in and askec the crowd whether they wanted to listen to her group or his. Th majority of the estimated 1,500 per sons attending yelled their approv al for Bowles to take over. Later, Dr. William E. Pretty man, president of the board of edu cation of the Laurel school distric said: "I think it should be emphasized that three-fourths of the thousands of people who attended this rally tonight were not residents of thi; district. They came from other parts of the state, from Maryland and as far away as Virginia. "I don't like the idea of this excitement. Our school will remain open. We don't anticipate any difficulties." was with "Why do I say riding back- paigning ward?" He asked. ''Because from seat. Stevenson all we hear are quips and criticisms; from Mitchell, smear 'and fear; and from Morse — well, he just acts like Morse." Nixon, on a 33-state tour to drum up Republican votes in the forthcoming Congressional elections, told newsmen on arrival here that the GOP faced "an uphill fight" to retain control of the House. But he said Republican candidates were running ahead in nine of .the 10 Senate races he had looked over during his tour. Nixon said that while Democratic Sen. Hubert Humphrey appeared to be leading Republican Val Bjornson in Minnesota, he very much impressed" Bjornson's campaign. Dewey Invited The vice president also issued a standing invitation to Gov. Thomas E. Dewey to join the Republican administration in Washington. Dewey will leave the governor's mansion Jan. 1. ''In my opinion," Nixon ftaict, "there is no position in the federal government today that Governor Dewey could not handle superbly." He added that he knew of no plans for Dewey to take a federal post. Nixon told an audience of about 2,000 Republicans that "there is a new climate in Washington." "This is an administration," he said, "that is cleaning up and not coveiing up." If the Democrats win Congress those calling the signals, he said, would be the "ADA (Americans for Democratic Action) left wing elements." "Left Wingers" Listed He said Stevenson. Mitchell and Morse were "united in their opposition to President Eisenhower, in their advocacy of the election of an anti-Eisenhower Congress, in their dedication to the philosophy of the ADA left wing of the Democratic party, and in their desire to return to the policies of Harry Truman." Asked earlier at his news conference to name some Democratic candidates he considered as "left wing," Nixon listed Richard L. Neuberger, running for the Senate in Oregon, and John Carroll, cam- for a Colorado Senate Immigration Snag Forces Dutch Girl, 72, to-Live Alone in U.S. By NOAH HALPER PHILADELPHIA tR — Inez de Koning admits that she doesn't exactly like living aione, but the 12- year-old Dutch girl says she manages to keep occupied enough to prevent boredom and loneliness. Inez, who came to this country less than three years ago, has an apartment in a central Philadel( jphia hotel where she cooks and ' Nixon predicted that the GOP[ no ^ would hold two Senate seats each in Nebraska and New Hampshire and one each in Michigan, Massachusetts and Kansas. He claimed that Republican Rep. George Bender was leading Sen. Thomas Burke in the • Ohio senatorial campaign and that Republican Joseph T. Meek was out in front of Sen. Paul Douglas in Illinois. Judy Garland Wins PI audits In Comeback HOLLYWOOD (ff) — Judy Garland's comeback was complete today as a star-packed first night audience and critics hailed her new movie. The little girl with the big voice, considered washed up in pictures four years ago,- scored a personal triumph at the world premiere of "A Star Is Born" last night. Her arrival was given a hysterical reception by fans at the Hollywood Pantages theater and most of the first nighters agreed she is a shoo- in for an Oscar next March. . Arriving with husband Sid Luft, who produced the picture, Judy looked radiant .in a black velvet -gown with jeweled collar and cap. She greeted friends, posed for photos and admitted she was "happy but nervous." She added: "I'll be glad when it's all over with." She was a far cry from the Judy whose tantrums led to an end of her long MGM contract." She started the comeback trail with her hit at New York's vaudeville shrine, the Palace. Warner Bros, agreed to star her in a remake of the 1937 classic, "A Star Is Born."' The film had a stormy history and the bill mounted to a whopping six million. Critics agreed it was worth it. {keeps house for herself, when she's school. She has been living there, alone, since her father, Theodore de Koning, an electrical engineer, returned to The Netherlands for a visit more than a month ago and then found himself barred by immigration rules from immediate reentry to the United States. Blonde, blue-eyed Inez had gone to camp for the summer. She got back on Aug. 12. Since then, with Mrs Agnes Allen, the hotel manager, keeping a motherly eye- on her, Inez has made her own way. Inez is a "very independent and self-sustaining child," says Mrs. Allen. The girl attends Friends Select school, a private institution .run by the Quakers and has made many friends in her three school years. She passes part of her time with them and devotes many hours to reading and studying. • Inez' father was in the United States for eight years, having entered on a first preference classification because- his services "were "urgently needed," by an American concern according to Henry Mulle, acting district director of the immigration and naturalization office here. De Koning returned to Europe without "any Knowledge on our part and even without the knowledge" of his employer, Mulle added. An extension of the first preference classification was rejected, Mulle continued, because the "concern advised us" it was no longer interested in his services. The director said de Koning could return to this country under a first preference classification if another American concern filed a petition for reentry. The first 50 per cent of a rorelgn country's immigration quota is reserved for first preference classifications. The other way de Koning could come back, said Mulle, would be under the regular quota system. De Koning' wrote his daughter that he was trying through both Dutch and American officials to speed, his readmission.

''Nudity in itself is not obscene," Judge William M. Bryne declared in granting a temporary injunction yesterday to the Star of Fire Gem. Co., restoring mail privileges for the firm which makes the coasters. Postal authorities after a Washington, D. C.. hearing had revoked the mailing rights on the grounds the pictures were "obscene, lewd, lascivious and indecent." The Judge ruled the postal censors neglect to "give any consideration of what is offensive to established notion of decency." The matter is one to be Settled by court trial, the judge said.
