company declined to make any comment on Hogan’s invest! gation Both shows are produced-by the same firm Entertainment Productions Inc Steve Carlin head of the firm said “The cancellation does not concern any accusation made against toe show They— the sponsors— are absolutely convinced of our integrity” A Nashville minister the Rev Charles E (Stoney) Jackson said last Sunday that in a preshow briefing he was given an answer by “Miss Bernstein” that enabled him to win 4000 last December Shirley Bernstein associate producer of the show denied she had ever assisted Jackson Hogan said he would turn over to the grand jury everything he has learned of the alleged rigging of TV quiz shows He said he would ask next Wednesday for the impaneling of the grand jury to hear evidence Such a step is usually an indication the district attorney believes an indictable offense has been committed Aware the public might draw such a conclusion however Ho- gan said quickly “It is not a fair assumption that we have con eluded there is wrongdoing” He said toe welter of charges and countercharge made agaist k various shows could be studied by the grand jury to see “whether the crime of conspiracy or other crimes have been committed” Hogan said he did not want to wait until the usual installation next month of four grand juries because me integrity of certain persons and enterprises had been questioned publicly “I think they are entitled to as speedy a resolution of these charges as is possible” he said Hogan declined to name the shows which would go to the grand jury Gene Tierney Back On

Department has dropped a five-year effort to put the National Lawyers’ Guild on toe at- orgir The adtion was disclosed Friday in a motion filed with the US District Court here The department asked the court to dismiss fis moot— meaning there is no question left to decide— a guild suit to prevent the listing The department said it has rescinded the proposed designation of the guild on the list The government motion said the proceeding has been so long-drawn out that some witnesses it considered important to establishing its contention that the guild should be listed are no longer available due to death or other causes The dismissal motion made on behalf of Atty Gen Rogers said comprehensive analysis of the case has been completed and the attorney general has concluded that the evidence that would now be available fails to meet the strict standards of proof needed Atty Gen Herbert Brownell notified the guild in August 1953 that he proposed to designate toe organization as subversive on grounds that it had been organized under Communist party direction and had substantially followed Communist party policies since 1946 The guild denied these charges and asked for a hearing Shortly afterward the guild filed suit in US District Court here to enjoin any hearing because it contended the proceeding was unconstitutional The guild lost that case The Supreme Court denied review A dispute then arose over questions which the attorney general submitted in writing to the guild and the organization took the matter back to the US District Court ast July 2 requesting an injunction to prevent the attorney general from putting the guild on the list Army Orders Super-Booster For Satellite WASHINGTON (AP)-The Army Friday contracted for a super-Ixwster for a satellite launching It is to have a thrust of 1 million pounds about eight times greater than this country’s largest existing propulsion unit There was no word as to the type of satellite it is proposed to launch But the Defense Department announcement spoke of a system for placing very large pay-loads into orbit This left open the question of whether a manned satellite might be contemplated In the rocketeer’s parlance the booster is the first stage of a multistage rocket The two-million-doliar contract for the superbooster was awarded North American Aviation’s Rock-etdyne Division The Defense Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agent assigned the high priority project to the Army’s ballistic missile agency for supervision The announcement said the superbooster will consist of a cluster of already tested rocket motors packaged into a single unit The WE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY and TUESDAY IN OBSERVANCE OF THE JEWISH HOLIDAYS Please Anticipate Your COLONY HARDWARE 443 COLONY ST 'Sunny Borders
