BLYTHEVILLfi (ARK.) OOURIKB HBW» FRIDAY, MAT fl, ^ .— Georgia's Talmadge May Find He's Overmatched in Fight with Court By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — When it comes time to step into the ring with the United States lupreme Court, Herman Talmadge, dark-haired governor of Georgia, may find he's over- He's itching, he says, for a knock-down-drag-out fight with the court which on Monday outlawed segregation in public schools. He says Georgia will defy the decision if it's the only Southern state which does. Georgia defied the court in Pres- * ident Andrew Jackson's time. Jackson winked and let Georgia get away with it. No president nowadays is likely to follow suit. Defiance would put Talmadge in the position of defying the nation and even undermining it since there can be no democratic society unless its members abide by the lawful processes, including the court, which they created. Talmadge's determination to fight the court may be in direct proportion to the willingness of other Southern states to go along •with him when the showdown comes. That's still months away. Action Uncertain On Monday the court said only segregation must end. It invited the attorneys general from the states with segregation to argue here in October on terms of a decree which will fix a deadline. What the government can do to make Georgia comply, if Talmadge balks, would depend on how he tried to frustrate the court order. What the government' might do is neither clear nor predictable. A few steps, however, appear obvious. . Talmadge could, say the ruling did not apply to Georgia because Georgia was not one of the states involved in the cases on which the court ruled, although Ms ruling does apply to all states. If Talmadge took this stand, nothing \*>uld happen until some Negro parents in Georgia asked a federal court to make Talmadge end segregation. Told by a federal court, as he would be, that the Supreme Court decision applied to Georgia, Talmadge could be jailed for contempt if he then disobeyed. He could be jailed indefinitely, or until he ordered segregation in Georgia ended. This would take months. H. then, individual school superintendents in Georgia refused] to follow the decision, they could be brought into federal court on contempt charges. More "time. Or Georgia's disobedience might take aome other turn. Another Time Jn President Jackson's day the federal government, because of treaties with the Cherokee Indians, claimed exclusive jurisdiction over territory tney occupied. Then Georgia claimed it. When a Cherokee Indian named Com Tassel killed another Indian, inside Cherokee territory, a (Horgia *tatc court, claiming jur- isdictaon, tried him and sentenced him to be hanged. On an appeal, the Supreme Court ordered the execution stopped and told Georgia to explain why it had infringed .on Cherokee territory. The Georgia State Legislature ordered local officers -to ignore the Supreme Court. Corn Tassel was hanged. Then Georgia ordered two New England missionaries, living in the Indian territory, to swear allegiance to Georgia. The missionaries refused on the grounds they were in Cherokee territory, not in Georgia. They were tried in a Georgia court and jailed. The Supreme Court ruled the federal government had jurisdiction and ordered the missionaries released. Georgia refused. Jackson is reported to have stood back and said, "John Marshall, the chief justice, has made his decision; now let him enforce It." Man Charged with Kidnaping 2 Children, Captured in Illinois CHICAGO (#)—• A 34-year-old man was summoned before a XJ. S. commissioner today on a charge of kidnaping a 7-year-old girl and her 3-year-old brother in Beloit, Wis.. 10 days ago and taking them to Illinois. Joseph McElroy, identified by the FBI as having a police record in Michigan and Indiana for molesting children and young girls, was seized by FBI agents and two Beloit policemen yesterday at a farm near Elwood, 111., about 50 miles southwest of Chicago. Guy Banister, special agent in c.uarge of tlic Chicago FBI office, said McElrcy would be arraigned on a charge of violating the Lindbergh law, which carries a maximum penalty of death. Banister said McElroy lured the gill and her brother into his pickup truck on May 11 by offering them chewing gum. The FBI agent said McElroy stopped the truck several times en route from Beloit to Rockford, 111., and molested the girl sexually. The children, who were not identified by Banister, were freed early the n?xt morning in Rockford and were returned to their parents. Beloit police said the girl had to!d them she and her brother were playing in a parking lot about half a block from their home when a man approached them and asked if they wanted to go for a ride around the block. The FBI said the children got into the truck and were driven to Rock- foid, 20 miles away. Banister said McElroy has admitted bein? in Beloit May 11 and seeing the children. However, the FBI agent said, he has denied kid- naping the children. McElroy had obtained employment at a farm near 'Elwood on Wednesday. On the same day a police officer at Plainfield, near Elwood, telephoned the FBI in Chicago to report seeing a truck which fitted the description of the one driven by the kidnaper at Beloit. Proposed Ban On Beer, Liquor Ads Attacked WASHINGTON UP)-—The National Editorial Assn. today attacked a proposal to ban beer and liquor advertising as a repressive measure that "could easily be extended to other advertised commodities." William L. Daley, representing the association's 6,000 newspaper members, said in a statement prepared for the House Commerce Committee that enactment of the proposed legislation would establish a far-reaching precedent. "To single out one commodity, where the production or sale of which raises on questions of constitutional validity, seems to us an extremely hazardous proceeding," he stated. "It would open the gate to other repressive measures relating to information and advertising of other commodities which the merchants have for sale in towns where our newspapers circulate.'' The committee, meanwhile, scheduled more witnesses on the controversial bill to bar interstate advertising of alcoholic beverages in newspapers and magazines and on radio and television. The measure was introduced by Rep. Joseph Bryson (D-SC), a prohibition crusader who died last year. Not Mi$$ing—Jailed «CH£NECTADY, N. Y.
