Fourteen loguuport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Say Decision Threatens Very Existence of FBI c:-J md WASHINGTON (UP) ^-The FBI; has taken to Congress what at. considers a'fight for. its life as an effective federal crime investigation agency. The fight has been going on behind the scenes for three weeks. It came out in the open Monday with the submission to Congress of legislation designed to save the FBI from full application of a Supreme Court ruling. The high court ruled June 3, in the case of Clifton E. Jencks, t New Mexico labor union official, that defendants in court cases must be given access to all FBI files related to testimony against them. The court gave a broad interpretation to the principle that a defendant has the right to confront his accuser. Decision Produce* Collusion The decision produced confusion In the nation's lower courts and warnings that the FBI, the Narcotics Bureau and other investigative agencies would be crippled.- Justice Tom Clark, in dissent- Ing, said the FBI "may as .well 'close up shop, for the court has opened their files to the criminal and thus afforded him a Roman holiday for rummaging through confidential informatiqn,as well as vital'national secrets." The FBI has not had to close shop yet, but Director J. Edgar Hoover and his staff are worried. If the Supreme Court edict stands and is interpreted broadly, they believe confidential informants will shy away from talking to the .FBI for fear they will be quoted in court or called to testify. ' If these sources of information. • dry up, the G-men will be serious- llies - Eight Cars Are Defective INDIANAPOLIS (UP) - About one of every eight motor vehicles checked for safety' features in Indiana during May showed defects, State-Traffic Safety Director Albert E. Huber said today. An incomplete report said defective rear lights—faulty tail or! brake lights—were found on 45,000 cars. Another 21,000 had burned- out headlights. Next, in order, 'came faulty exhaust and muffler assemblies, brakes, and windshield wipers. Vets Urged to Help Out In Disaster Relief CHICAGO — One of the nation's top veterinary doctors, urged his colleagues to take part in-relief activities during disasters. Dr. John G. Hardenbergh, executive secretary of the American Veterinary Medical Assn., said that veterinarians have a vital role to play-after hurricanes, floods and like emergencies. Hardenbergh cited a veterinarian in Winsted, Conn., whose -animal hospital became the sole source of medical supplies in Jie 1955 flood here. He said 'the contributions of vet- erinarians in such cases were "extensions of peacetime responsibilities," chief of .which was safeguarding "the nation's supply of animal-derived foods." Another responsibility of, the veterinarian which- would come' into play during an emergency was his concern, with the disease prevention measures such as inspection and quarantine, he said. ROMANCE WINS TAMPA, Fla—The draft board here agreed to delay Heinz Bach-, mann's^ induction into the service for 22 days in order to let him marry his German sweetheart, who was en route here 1 by boal when Heinz was called. Monday Evening, July 1, 1957. Delphi .Don Tribbett, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Schrader, route 2, Brookston, who is stationed aboard the USS Cucilla, injured his eyes) while working in the engine room of his ship last week. He was taken to St. Cubins hospital in New York where he will stay for a week. Bandages have been removed from his eyes but he will be required to wear dark glasses for awhile, according to word received by his wife, Pat Sofer Tribbett. Members of Past Noble Grand club of Adina' Eebekah Lodge attended a bo-operative supper at Riley park recently. Hostesses were Miss Mary Benjamin,. Mrs. Ethel Cunningham and Mrs. Mae Thompson. Cpghill Brothers, owners of Pon- tlac Sales in W. Delphi, held a picnic in Columbian Park, Lafayette, for employees and their fam- ly handicapped in tracking down federal law violators. Federal narcotics agents, who work under Treasury Department supervision, also are appealing for legislation action to maintain, the cloak of secrecy abouf their work. May Affect Defense Department The Defense Department may be affected, too. Some lawyers interpret the ruling to mean the department must upen up secret files of its counter - intelligence corps and crimfoii investigation agencies in loyalty, security and common criminal cases tried by court martial. • The Justice Department tried to get around the ruling by an administrative order interpreting it narrowly. Attorney General' Herbert R. Brownell Jr. instructed U.S. attorneys to make available only pertinent excerpts of pretrial statements t o the FBI • by persons who had already appeared in court as government witnesses for the prosecution.. Attending the picnic were the families of James, Albert, Paul and Charles Cdghill, Don Jones, Verne Kelley, Russell Miller, Jack Pattengale, John Bunnell, Tom Harland, Homer Gripe, Wayne Myers, Emery Martin, Hugh Young, Reed Sales and his mother, Mrs. Lou Sales; Mr. and Mrs. Paul Crooks of Yeoman; OrlUf Coghill, Mrs. Josephine Merrill, Mr. and Mrs. John Ward, and Mr.' and Mrs. Raymond Ward of Danville, m.
