Tuesday Evening, July 2, 1957. President Shows Respect For Decisions of Court WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower has given his team the signal on the angry controversy now rising around the Supreme Court. If the President has called a timid play, there is ample reason for that. Four of the justices are his men. The word from the White H»use i» this: Lay off the court. The word came at this week's news conference when Eisenhower asked for respect for the court's rulings — even those which were difficult to understand. Attorney General Herbert Brownell Jr. has moved quietly and cautiously to remedy the damage government prosecutors believe the court has inflicted on the processes of criminal justice in federal courts. Protection Bills Offered Bills have been offered in both houses of Congress to protect FBI files against the court's order which would permit criminal elements of the United States to rummage through them. Browneil went to Capitol Hill today to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on such proposed legislation. If he told the committee what federal prosecutors generally think of the court's ruling in the Jencks case, Ihe legislators would get an carfull. Clinton E. Jencks was tried and convicted on a charge of falsify- j ing an affidavit in which he swore j he was not a Communist Jencks, ; a labor union leader, signed the affidavit under terms of the Taft- Hartley Act. The trial judge re- fured to permit Jencks' counsel to examine the FBI files on which the charge of Communist Parly wai based. The Supreme Court reversed the conviction, and Joricku is a free man. This was a so-called olvil liberties case, and the court got a lot of applause for defending an individual's rights against public prosecutor*. The ruling will prevail, however, far b o n d the field of civil liberties. It will govern in criminal actions in federal courts relating, for example, to dope peddling, tax skullduggery, anil .- trust prosecutors and the like. Some 30 auch cwux, under trial when the Jencks decision came, now arc in a condition of legal chao». Federal judges do nol kmw how to interpret the Supreme Court's new rule or do federal pro.'jcjcutors know how to proceed under It. Business Spending And Borrowing Sets Fast Pace in Month WASHINGTON (UP) — The Federal Reserve Board reported today that business spending 'and borrowing continued to set a fast pace for the booming economy in the first half of 1957. But the board noted some important shifts in types of outlays and patterns of financing adopted recently by industry. Spending for plant and equipment continued high, the board pointed out in its June bulletin. But the conservative trend toward lower inventories continued. Corporate tax payments were down during the first half of the year due to the tax acceleration program adopted by the government in 1954. The board found that across the nation's industrial base, industry was financing its growth in increasing amounts out of profits and depreciation allowances. Business also has gone to capital markets for expansion money to such an extent that records were set for this type of borrowing in the early months of 1957. On the other hand the board found bank borrowing was on the wane during the period, while reductions of corporate liquid assets were Jower than a year ago. The over-all growth picture, as scan by the Commerce Department and Securities and Exchange Commission, was close to the record high reached late last year and suggested a continued high level for the rest of the year. Senate Bill Would Limit Court Ruling Regarding FBI Files WASHINGTON (UP) - The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved today a bill to limit the effect of a recent Supreme .'Court decision .opening FBI riles to defendants in certain criminal cases. Sen. Joseph C. O'Mahoney (D- Wyo.) said he would report the Mil to the Senate today and push to get it passed this week. The administration-backed bill would let federal, judges examine the FBI files and submit to defendants only such material as is relevant to a particular case,. The House Judiciary Committee meets on similar legislation Tuesday. Pending before it 1 are the administration bill and a stiffer measure drafted by Rep.

How, and how soon, will this affect the household of. Mis. America? Not as much- and not as rapidly as many women may think, said Vice Adm. WillarcTKitts III, who manages the atomic products study for the General Electric Co. But the overall outlook is attractive, if not immediately spectacular. Kitts .sees, atomic energy providing plentiful low-cost electricity, at first, and then improving the health of the family and conveniences of the home. • ' He said, "By far the most important benefit to the housewife of the atomic age will be a guarantee of our supply of' plentiful, low-cost electricity." To Improve Product! This is not going to change cooking methods themselves in a hurry, for cooking with electricity produced by nuclear fuels is the same as cooking with the. electricity made by the fuels we now use. The important thing, he added, is that we can~count on always having the fuel we need, in .the factory and in the home. • , Kitts does see atomic energy working changes in the woman's world, changes that will be definite Improvements in modern living. He said the day is not too far off Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tritmns Fiy« when atomic radiation will help retard food spoilage and improve the farm products Mrs. America uses. Also, 'the application of atomic radiation to plastics, chemicals, and other industrial processes, will make our homes safer and easier to live in, through new germ-proof containers, dirt-resistant fabrics, and maybe even new, more beautiful miracle fabrics. Kitts also sees the application of atomic energy in the field of medicine as bringing comfort to a woman concerned with the well- being of her family through new treatments and cures for dread as well as lesser diseases.
