Hutches said today, in a stag picnic fist fight which resulted in his -death. The 34-year-old Palmer died late yesterday of a cerebral hemorrhage which followed a blow of the head Thursday at a Junior Chamber of Commerce outing near Bradenton. Assistant State Attorney W. M. Smiley jsaid Kenneth Nosworthy, a Bradenton meat cutter, voluntarily admitted that he struck Palmer with his fist. Nosworthy remained at liberty today, Sheriff Hutches asserting he saw no reason to detain him. Smiley said the case would be presented "shortly" to the Manatee County Grand Jury, now in recess. Palmer was admitted to a hospital Saturday, At his bedside when he died were his parents, the socially-prominent Mr. and Mrs. Honore Palmer of Sarasota and Chicago, and his bride, of Jess than five months, the former waitress, Pluma, Louise Lowery Abatiello. He had only recently effected a reconciliation after she sued the parents for alienation. Assistant State Attorney Smiley said Nosworthy gave this account of the fatal altercation: Palmer, who had been drinking, singled Nosworthy out, followed him around and taunted .him. Nosworthy tried to avoid him but Palmer pursued th e meat cutter, cursed him and struck him with his fist. Nosworthy returned the blow, knocking Palmer to the ground. Palmer pulled Nosworthy clown as he fell and the two scuffled briefly and then got to their feet. Palmer then tried to wield a bottle and when he did, Nosworthy struck the Sarasotan a hard blow with his fist. The two parted and Palmer left the picnic sometime later. j Salisbury Farmer Injured by Fall in Lumber Yard J. H.

PARIS, Mo,, May 16 -- Paris will have a movie star of its own now -- Brenda Joyce, who will make her debut as Pern in 20th Century-Fox's production of Lois Bromfield's best - seller, "The Rains Came." Paris knew Brenda as Betty Leabo two winters ago, when sh6 was visiting here in the home of her uncle, the Rev. Harold Roberts. At that time, at !§, she took an active part in the social life pf the town, actively cooperated in religious duties at the Christian church of which her uncle is pastor and lent her talent as a- student and a reader of Shakespearean roles to the town's literary clubs ·on several occasions. | Born in Kansas .City Brenda was born in Kansas City but was taken at the age of 5 to San Bernardino, Cal., by her mother, Mrs. Rosalie Leabo. She finished junior high school in San Bernardino, then moved with her mother to Los Angeles and entered high school there. In high school she won a scholarship at the University of Southern California, aided by her abilities at public speaking and dramatics. She spent one semester there, then transferring to the University of California at Los Angeles, 's'he left that university a year ago to become a commercial photographer's model. For months Paris people who knew Brenda saw her in current magazines -- in new automobiles, using toothpaste, modeling shoes, smiling her way through the glossy life of a magazine girl. Then, recently, they · heard she had been awarded a contract^ with 20th 'Century - Fox. And then that Darryl F. Zanuck, ' in charge of production at" the studio, had selected her for the second feminine lead in "The Rains Came." Fern.Simon, in Bromfield's novel, was unhappy at 18 because her frustrated, ambitious mother was always ahoving her at prospective males whom' she didn't like and she thought she would never find love 1 in the narrow confines of the city of Ranchipur where she lived. A Special C,la,use But Brenda, with all Hollywood before her, is.not letting her studio shove prospective males at her. A clause in her contract stipulates that she need not make appearances with young- romantic play- prs, for publicity purposes. · At,-the moment. Brenda and her mother are separated. Mrs. Leabo is house mother at the Beta Theta Pi chapter , house at Westminster College in Fulton. She occasionally spends week-ends here in the home of her brother. 1 ' She will go to the West Coast this summer to spend several months with her daughter. And Brenda is passing up Hollywood's young eligibles for a. boy friend she has known since her junior high school days, Owen Ward, who will graduate at the University of California this ^spring. ' v Studio publicity says of Brenda 1 s opportunity for a motion picture career: "The producers appreciated that the girl whom camera magic was to mould into Fern must not be too profesional in her appearance on the screen, not too glamorous, in a synthetic way, and not too clever in the phases,of drama. For anything that might hint at artificiality would · destroy the very real Fern of Bromfield's imagination. /'For that reason, Darryl F. Za- 'nuck, the production chieftain of 20th Century' -· Fox'set in motion a search for Fern Simon that extended across the nation. He tested 58 girls, at a total cost of $40,000, for the role, many of them unknowns, several of them famous on the screen. "And out of those long, gruell- ing tests before the camera there, walked a blonde slender girl of 18 who WAS beautiful not in the Hollywood pattern but in the freshness of her personality, in the naivete of her ways, In the candor of her brown eyes -- a girl \vho was Fern Simon. "To Brenda Joyce, Zanuck handed the choicest role of the season in Hollywood, a romantic lead that had been coveted by many of th« cinema town's great. To Brenda^ Joyce, a college co-ed who had quit university to earn her own way, and who had never appeared on the screen or the legitimate stage, he gave a chance at stardom such 1 as Hollywood seldom has handed out;" BIG SANDY AREA SIGNS CONTRACT Baseball Results 12,000 Miners Included yj" ' » V£Sc? Agreement; 'Bloody Ear-' Ian' and Hazard Guarded ' HAPPY CHANDLER ASSAILED BY LEWIS , HARLAN f Ky., May 16. ^P-The Big Sandy-Elkhorn Coal Operators Association capitulated to the United Mine Workers today by signing a ,union shop contract but national guard protection in I the southern part of ^ t h c state was extended to Bell County.

The operators along the West Virginia border employ approximately 12,000 miners and produce around 10,000,000 tons of soft coal annually. An Officer Relieved X national guard officer was relieved of his command today for failure to "show the proper aggressiveness" as 13 additional mines/ 19 in all, opened in the disturbed Harlan soft coal field under the protective guns of state troops. , Brigadier General Ellerbe Carter in announcing the officer's ,removal, refused to give his name but'said 1 he had been sent^ home and his machine gun troop, on duty yesterday at the Totz trouble zone, 'broken up and x distur- butted among other units. It was at Totz that C, V. Bennett, general manager p f ' t h e Harlan Central- Coal Company, reported an automobile filled with miners returning from ,work was attacked by. pickets and stones through the windshield but none was hurt. Bennett also reported 150 to 200 1 / pickets wore "threatening." Several units of troops were rushed to the spot and spent the night, ' Troop protection was extended toda.y to Bell County. Tours the There was no indication this morning when peace conferences, started yesterday, would be resumed but William Turblazer, president v of the Harlan United Mine Workers district, before going on a tour of th e mines, said he expected' to sign 'the ' Black Mountain Coal Corporation to a union shop contract late- today. Operators of Kentucky's Hazard district prepared to chart their course at a meeting today in Lexington. Col. Roy W. ,Easley of the guardsmen here "reported troops had been asked by 13 more Harlan mines. -General Carter said Turnblsser and -George Titler, -secretary of the Harlan UMW district, had promised they would "endeavor" t 0 maintain peaceful picketing. \ Carter said he had not rescinded his order--which Titler called "an outrage and in plain violation · of national law"--against mass picketing.

Lewis, chief of the Congress of Industrial Organizations and the UMW, in a speech last night at Philadelphia.
