COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, MAY 12, 1953 Crittenden County Bar Challenges Integration Ruling of Supreme Court LITTLE HOCK (AP> — A county bar association has challenged the right of the Arkansas Supreme Court to order all Arkansas lawyers to Join and support a single professional organization. The Crittenden County . Bart ••Association asked permission yes- . , _ tcrday to file written arguments |^/Qf/5f RQlUmS From Grave to Taunt Officials for the Court to reconsider its April 27 order calling for integration of the bar by Jan. 1, 1954. It intimates the Court is forcing Arkansas lawyers to Join a labor union. The Court granted the permission and said the briefs must be filed by June 1. The Critttenden petition, signed by John Mac Smith as president and Henry S. Wilson as secretary, says that to force all Arkansas attorneys to join an association is unconstitutional — that it violates AmeSBment 34 — which outlaws the closed shop. The lawyers also said that the order violated several other sections of the U. S. and Arkansas Constitutions, including the Arkansas Amendment which says the Supreme Court may regulate law practices and professional conduct. The lawyers say the amendment does not give the Court the right to order integration. The integration order was made by a divided Court with two justices — Chief Justice Griffin Smith had Associate Justice Ed McFaddin dissenting.

LOS ANGELES 6T> — Rambling letters of a young wife to the stu- ' dent accused of trying to murder her husband will be read to a Jury today. Defense attorneys for Richard La Force, 19, brilliant physics student, late yesterday offered in evidence 20 letters written him by Mrs. Joyce Hayden. Excerpts previously admitted included intimate discussions of sex matters. La Force has accused Joyce of the crime with which he is charged— attempting to poison her husband Robert. He testified he put arsenic in a bottle of drinking water at the Hayden home to divert suspicion to himself. | "TO make certain Joyce would not get involved," he said, "I proceeded to get myself caught. "I, at that time, wished 16 take the blame lor what I thought were attempts on the life of Robert Hayden ... I thought Joyce was making these attempts, f was very much in love with Joyce and this was the least I could do to take the blame . . . there were certain indications I had from her that she was in love with me." ': The wife, also 19 and an expectant mother, had denied any romance with La Force, but. he told j of dates with her after her marriage and said tVmt on one occasion they sat in his parked car and kissed, getting home about 4 a.m. It seemed odd to him, La Force said, that on the three occasions when poison was put in beverage containers at the Hayden's apartment, Robert was the only one who handled them afterward. "I thought I would do what I could to stop this foolishness," he continued. "I talked with Joyce to find out what was going on, if anything. Then I learned that the milk bottle had been taken to the sheriff's office to be analyzed and I knew they would find cyanide. "When Robert called off the Bombing Settles Old Argument CARAVAGGIO. Italy W)—It too* one of history's stransest "bomb- Ings" to do it, but a centurlcs-old spat between two Northern Italian villages over a statue appeared settled today. Let's start nt the beginning, or thereabouts. In the year 1380, a long-forgotten sculptor carved out a marble bas- relief of a sea horse. It was placed on the border between the villages of Caravaggio and Treviglio. Early in the 15th century, Tre- vfellans snatched the sculpture and placed it in a niche in their ancient palace wall. This rankled Caravaggio for some 300 years. Last Feb. 27, commando- type raiders carried the carving (ft to Caravaggio. Now for the bombing.
