COURIE* PAGE TRBEB StateofDelawareTakesBattle Against NAAWP into Court DOVER Del (AP) — The State of Delaware goes to court today in an attempt to abolish the National Assn. for the Advancement of White People, one of the leaders in the recent successful fight against racial integration in the Milford high school.

It could not be injunction against Bryant Bowles, the president, and other NAAWP officers, forbidding them "from soliciting memberships and collecting dues." Meanwhile, Bowles was reported planning a meeting in Philadelphia ;oday, Bowles said last night he Atty. Gen. H. Albert Young said last' night In Wilmington that he would bring the action in the Court of Chancery here and at the same time would ask that a receiver be appointed to wind up the affairs of the association, chartered in Delaware. Young contended that the NAAWP had violated its charter which provided it would "promote and protect the constitutional guarantees of citizenship in the United States." The NAAWP'S actions in opposing integration and aiding in a boycott at the Milford school and in sympathy boycotts elsewhere "abused the term of its charter," Young averred.

In another development yesterday, the Presbytery of Delaware in a meeting at New Castle adopted a resolution urging all its members to refrain from school boycotts and other manifestations of pected to have a meeting in Phila- [racism, ielphia with "the cops." He did ' *- " not elaborate. But this was taken to mean he expected trouble with Philadelphia authorities. The Delaware attorney general said he would subpoena the officers of the NAAWP to deliver to him "their books, records and minutes of meetings concerning opposition to racial integration in the schools as well as a record of its expenditures in its opposition to racial integration." If Young's requests are granted by the court, it would probably mean an end to the organized effectiveness of the NAAWP. Roster Sought Young also sought to get lists of the organization's members, an accounting of gifts received and lists of those who paid dues. Young announced last Friday that his office would conduct an investigation over the weekend of possible law violations in connection with a series of mass meetings held by the NAAWP in Sussex County, the area in which Milford is located. Bowles appeared last night at Glen Burnie, Md., to promise before a crowd of 500 that he would In New York, Thurgood Marshall, special counsel for the Na- ional Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People asked Atty.

Double Feature 6UMOR G«L! —AND— ALSO SHORT Ousted MP&L Official Ends Testimony Today Stictenroth Before Senate Group 5th Day WASHINGTON «T— J. D. Stteten- roth. ousted Mississippi utility official, is scheduled today to wind up testimony before a Senate -subcommittee probing Ihe controversial Dixon-Yates contract.. In four days of testimony last week. Stietenroth detailed his accusation that Wall Street dominated the utility for which he wa.s secretary-treasurer. Mississippi Power and Light Co. . This firm is a subsidiary of Middle South "Utilities. Inc., one of two firms that would share in the Dixon-Yates contract which President Eisenhower has directed the Atomic Energy Commission to negotiate. The contract .nails for the Dlxon- Yates private u.ility group to build n plant at West Memphis, Ark., to supply power to Hie Tennessee Valley Authority (TVAt. It would place electricity which TVA furnishes an AEC plant at Paducah. Ky. Aroused Storm The proposal has aroused storm of controversy in Congress, particularly among lawmakers from TVA states. Stietenroth was fired by bis company last month after he issued a statement asserting It was serving the interests of Wall Street and not of its customers. Sen. Langer (R-ND). chairman of the monopoly and antitrust, subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee, then summoned Stietenroth to testify on Ihe affairs of Mississippi Power and Light, und on what he knew of the Dixon-Yates contract. The two subcommittee members participating In the hearings, Langer and Sen. Kefauver (D-Tennt, strongly oppose the Dixon-Yates contract. ' One subcommittee source said Stietenroth was expected to finish today, but that the question of further hearings this week had not been decided. The Senate did not grant any funds to the subcommittee in the congressional session which ended Aug. 20, and Langer denounced the Republican leadership bitterly for this. The request for funds may be renewed at the special Senate session starling Nov. 8.

Dulles Hails Trieste Pact As Defense Aid WASHINGTON (.Ti—Secretary of State Dulles today hailed the Trieste settlement as contributing to tile creation of "a holid and dependable collective defense of Southern Europe." Officials here salci also that, the United States intends to so through with plans for withdrawing its 3.000 troops troin Trieste regardless of how Uu> present accord is received. But they confidently assumed that the Italian Parliament will approve the agreement. Trieste has been a red hot issue in Italian politics since the end of World War II, but it was felt here that Premier Scelba would not have completed the settlement unless he had high hopes of parlla- menl-ary appioval. Thus Ihe prospect of Rome's ratification, coupled with the vniqucstioucd approval of Yugoslavia, makes confirmation virtually certain in a few days. American troops and approximately 2,000 British soldiers are due to come out within three weeks. Officials said they expected U. S. withdrawal plans would go forward on schedule regardless of any other development, and it was assumed Britain would follow the same policy. PRIDE (Continued from Page 1) grandchildren.
