BLYTHE'v iLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, OCTOBER », 1951 Jury Indicts Six Persons on Sedition Charge Group Probes Allege dCommunist Plot in Bombing LOUISVILLE. Ky. \fr— A grand jury probe of an alleged Communist plot in the dynamitinp of a Negro's home in a white noitihbor- hood produced indictments last night charging six persons with advocating sedition. One of, the £ix. all white friends of the Negro, also was indicted by the county prnnd jury on n charge of dynamiting the home here. Commonwealth's Atty. A. Scott Hamilton had said during the investigation—once termed a "witrh hunt" by the newspaper employing one of those indicted—that he believed the dynamiting might hnve been part of d Communist plot to Incite racial hatred. The newsman. Carl Bracien, 40, a copyreader for the Courier-Journal, bought the house, then transferred it to Andrew Wade IV, a Negro electrical contractor. ' Wade and his friends have contended the blast was set off by "anti-Negro hoodlums." But Hamilton expressed ft belief the dynamiting was planned to make it appear Wade was being persecuted. Jailed on charges of advocating Mdltlon by distributing "printed matter . . . and being members of a society or assembly of persons teaching, advocating or suggesting the doctrine of criminal syndicalism or sedition or change of the government ... by force or violence" were: Braden and his wife, Anne. Miss Louise Gilbert, a social worker. Miss Larue Spiker. 42, unemployed factory worker and Miss Gilbert's roommate. Vernon Baun, a truck driver previously indicted for contempt after refusing to answer grand jury questions on Communist mutters. I. ,0. Ford. 79, Baun's roommate. The grand jury also charged Baun with setting off the June '21 blast. Its report attacked the Courier- Journal, the Louisville Times ami radio station WHAS, all under the •ame ownership, for written and broadcast material which "borders on the obstruction of justice." The newspapers and station declined to comment. All had deplored the bombing but bad been critical of Hamilton's handling of the probe. Kentucky's sedition law, passed in 1920 and never used here before as far as could be learned carries a maximum penalty of n $10,000 fine and 21 years imprisonment. The penalty for causing im explosion is 2 to 10 years in prLson. The six were held today in default of $10.000 bond each. All except Ford faced contempt charges at some point, clurinR th<> investigation lor refusing to answer questions on Communist inn t lens, political beliefs or social relationships or refusing to take the oath AS a witness. However, only Biiun was indicted lor contempt. During the probe, which turned up Communistic literature at the Baun-Pord and Spiker-Gilbci I residences, the Couric-r-journnl described it as a "witch hunt." Terming the transfer of the house "deplorable," the Courier-Journal added that it believed Bnulcn is "is entitled to his own political conviction and social associations." It said Braden "does his work" and shou'd not be fired although "we think both Mr. and Mrs. Braden are politically misguided 1 , thut they -stir up difficult and potentially dangerous community situations in pursuit of their beliefs."

Germany, should pledge not to manufacture any arms of a "sensitive nature." The German government also should promise not to manufacture any ordinary arms o.xcept those necessary to equip the 12 divisions it is scheduled to raise for Western defense. Mendes-France reportedly considered the Dulles proposal "interesting", and today it was said he regards It with favor. One highly qualified source said the plan also appealed to Britain and to West German Chancellor Adenauer. A British Foreign Office spokesman warned last night that Britain would withdraw its offer to maintain troops on the European continent if the conference breaks down. The offer was made Wednesday. Dulles already has said the United States might have to withdraw its troops from europe if the talks fail. Both French and American spokesmen expressed hope the delegates would be able to thresh out a new agreement to free West Germany and rearm its people within the Western defense alliance. The French spokesman described his nation's rejection of the plan for enlisting West Germany in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and an enlarged 7-nation Brussels alliance as "a little difficulty over controls." But a grave-faced British spokesman said: "We are back on the wrong side of the hump." The problem is this: 1. The uneasy French, invaded three times within living memory by German troops, want .iron-clad safeguards that would keep the Germans from growing strong enough to become a threat again. In particular, they seek strict limits to heavy arms manufacture inside Germany. 2. France's, allies, together with Weot Germany and Italy, think the safeguards proposed by Mendes- France would be too costly and too cumbersome. They argue the French plan would slow down the pace of European industry. The rejected, compromise, of- fered by Belgian Foreign Mlnl*«r Paul-Henri Spaak, was designed to streamline and simplify ths process of controlling arms production and' distribution. Trance's rejection came out of, the blue yesterday after four days of smooth negotiations In which Mendes-France reportedly had accepted the compromise. The French premier complained the Spaak plan did not go far enough In rigidly controlling every aspect of the manufacture and distribution of arms. He demanded fuller consideration of his own proposals, which called for control* to rest chiefly in the hands of * European armament authority. A French spokesman said Mendes-France also objected to th« Spaan plan because it entailed control and inspection over the production of "only a few heavy weapons." Conference officials reported "narsh words were exchanged" on the merits and demerits of th« rival proposals.
