The Revere Elks charged the ABC has exceeded its legal authority and is violating the Elks members constitutional rights of freedom of association and right of privacy. QUENTIN CRISTY named in suit admit to the ABC that the Constitution and laws of the Grand Lodge of the Elks for the US "do in fact limit membership only to white male citizens of the US." The Revere lodge said that all Elks lodges in the country are bound by the national lodge laws. The Revere lodge charged that by allowing other groups to intervene in the scheduled public hearing, the ABC is attempting to hold the Elks "up to public ridicule, contempt and scorn." so we're cleaning out our winter stock to make room for brand new Spring merchandise! February is State subversive board attacked PAUL PAPPAS keeps mum on Panthers that as a newsman he had a right to refuse to disclose the sources of his news information. The court, in a decision by Justice R. Ammi Cutter, ruled that Massachusetts law provides no such privilege for newsmen.

The high court, however, did say that authorities must show civil liberties of every citizen and no one knows whether he is in those files. "Until very recently employers were allowed to consult these files to eheck on job applicants." Dukakis noted that the present commissioner of public safety has outlawed this but there is nothing to prevent future commissioners from returning to it. He described; the files as "repugnant, even if not that there is a real need for forcing a newsman to dis close such information. Further court hearings were ordered on that question. Attys.

William Carey, on behalf of Pappas, and Bristol Dist. Atty. Phillip Rollins appeared today before Supreme Court Justice Paul C. Reardon requesting a delay in the effect of the decision by the full bench of the high court. Justice Reardon referred the matter to the other six justices of the court.

Chief Justice G. Joseph Tauro scheduled a lobby conference with the attorneys, and the high court took the request under advisement.

The suit was filed for the Revere lodge by Attys.

Robert Cohen and Alexander J. Cella. It is a test case on behalf of all the state Elks lodges. The suit follows closely upon similar questions raised in Maine where state licensing authorities moved to withhold liquor license of Elks clubs there. The Revere lodge sought an injunction to stop the ABC from holding a hearing Monday on the issue of whether the lodge's license should not be renewed.

In setting that date for the hearing, the ABC cited as its reason the charge that the Revere lodge "discriminates on the grounds of race in the selection of its members." Judge Eugene A. Hudson declined to issue the temporary injunction. He set Feb. 5 for a preliminary hearing. The Elks brought the suit against ABC commissioners 'Howard M.

Kelley, 56, of Watertown, the government's chief witness in the Brink's armed robbery trial spent his third day on the witness stand in Suffolk Superior Court undergoing cross examination by defense counsel Usher oren.

Moren fired question after question at Kelley about certain inconsistencies in statements made on the witness stand when compared to earlier statements made to Boston Police and the F.B.I. Kelley at one point said he lost the loot of the robbery which he estimated at $65,000 at Aqueduct and Yonkers Raceway in early 1969. Kelley also admitted he might have varied in his statements about which individuals were in which cars. Kelley and former Brink's guard Andrew De Leary have both pleaded guilty to the half-million dollar robbery of an armored car on Canal st. in December 1968.

Screams of passersby Lawyers for Paul Pan- pas, a New Bedford television news reporter who was ordered to answer Grand Jury questions concerning his news coverage of a Black Panther meeting, sought a stay today against a decision of the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court. The high court last week ordered the Bristol County Superior Court to hold further proceedings on the previous order of Superior Court Judge Frank E. Smith directing Pappas to answer questions of a Bristol Grand Jury. The Grand Jury late last fall sought to question Pappas about events inside a Black Panther headquarters during racial disturbances in New Bedford last July.

Pappas lost his argument to the Supreme Court three-quarters of a million dollars and "has nothing to show for that except a stack of musty old files. "At a time when officials are looking for places to cut the budget," he said, "it seems incredible this item will be left untouched. "Division staff members ought to be joining the war on crime instead of spying on peace groups and civil rights groups," he said.

The suit also charged that there are no state or Federal laws or court rulings giving ABC any legal basis for refusing renewal of the license.
