Lawyers for the 15 said they will ask Federal District,Court here to rule out segregation in the guard on grounds that, it is "unconstitutional and without any reasonable justification." fe The attorneys said they will coh- Ptend that segregation in the guard "weakens its military efficiency and impairs its fighting effectiveness." "Facilities offered colored veterans in the National Guard are clearly inferior to those available to other members," prepared ' gal papers said.

But I am splendidly secure, sipping wine and eating pizzas in the one-time love - palace of Benito Mussolini. • A macabre idea, perhaps. But the wine is dry and the pizza is tangy and Benito's days of ambition and amour are over.

Perhaps out of respect for the power that once charged this hilltop hideaway, the customers sup NOW^ouean this brand new buy quietly. It is not a gay spot. Here in the black marble dining room, with its glass walls looking out over the private swimming patio, the two of them once .dined alone. In the coo! light of the enormous 'Bohemian cut - glass chandeliers, their unpopular devotion reflected in the fabulous floor- to-ceiling mirrors that line the un- glassed walls, they too drank wine. It must have been lonely . . . 20 intimate tables for 80 intimate diners now take the place of Duce : nd his dame.

Va..— Phone 20971 Says His Play 'Still Intact' By CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK .av-Herman. Wouk, one of the best and most success ful of younger American writers, believes television offers a great opportunity to the learning writer. The author of "The Caine Mutiny" and the new best-seller "Marjorie Morningstar" had just finished reading the TV script of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial" the -other day when cornered for an interview. That stage success by Wouk, based on his novel. Three new special .training lasses in Civil Defense are start- ng this week and will, continue six eeks, William G. Barger* county irector. announced. f Plans for the classes were com- leted at a recent Civil Defense :ai ; f meeting attended by heads of CD services. Barger said the ew CD -building at Constitution evening as the. third "Ford Star Jubilee" show of the season >9:3( p.m." EST). The hour and a hali original drama has most of the Broadway cast. Laughton Work Praised "The heart of the play is intact.' Chiriigo, points out Mussolini's reported that of all mistresses, Claretta was the only "other woman" that even the Duce's wife, 3onna Rachele, conceded to be his great love. "And though .most kalians would condemn illicit re- .ationships," she. : says, "Claretta earned a measure, of respect bef cause she died with Benito. She apparently loved him above every- ;hing." ' In return, for the few final years of their love affair, she and her immediate family, father, mother and sister, were given this modern- Wouk said of the TV script skillful whole- "Cbarles Laughton did a editing job. I approve it heartedly." '. Wouk. who wrote radio scripts for Fred Allen and Henry Morgan a decade and more ago, has not written for television. "Television is a marvelous opportunity for the learning writer," he said. "He's able to support him self while he learns his profession wife of INS's Rome Manager Mike because television eats up so much material. Its frame is small, bu technically it gives a writer the chance to develop competence without starving in a garret. "If a man's ultimate is to istic marble mansion nill over Rome. her benefactor died in high on a After Clarette and died in disgrace, be a serious literary artist, anc not just to make money, the dis ciplines imposed by television are as useful .as any I know to help him achieve his goal." The big financial returns; tha come to some TV writers will no necessarily deflect the serious writer from his eventual artistic goals, Wouk believes.--"How-a man takes to financial success depend; on'his. temperament." Has Even Temperament Wouk knows, because he ha the family leased the villa to established restaurateurs. The boudior of ill repute is now a banquet hall for private carnivals. Besides the elaborate dining room on the first floor of the two- story building, there is a downstairs "main salon" which resem-i bles a Hilton Hotel lobby more than classic Roman. architecture; Its ceiling is 50 feet high, supported by marble • columns. Its-front is plate glass, looking out over the city- of Rome and Mussolini's "forum.". In the center is an illuminated crystal fountain, behind which a small string ensemble plays cock-, tail music. . . •,' Outside this Mussolini -made grandeur is some Heaven-made splendor: fields full of .flowers, closed now for the winter, and a forest 'of cypress trees whistling and bowing in the wind. Amid all these, a.white marble been blessed both by success an an even temperament. As he moc estly puts it, "Success always ha seemed partial to me." After th popular reception of "The Cain Mutiny," there was, as^he'dryl explains, "a big area for my doin absolutely nothing." . But "Marjorie Morningstar" wa on his mind, driving him to work In the midst of writing "Ma jorie Morningstar" he broke off- in. mid-sentence, actually—to wril "The Caine Mutiny Court Mar tial." When the play was finishe he returned to Marjorie withou difficulty. Before turning Marjbri over to his publisher he cut b tween 125,000 and. 150,000 words— the. .length: of a long- novel.
