Wednesday. Mt »rv:h 16, 1966 Editorials Andl Features Chief Justice Warren Cited For Co urt Role (Editor's Note: This article reflects the opinion of Associated Press columnist James Marlowe, a news analyst. Chief Justice Earl Warren is one of the most controversial men ever to hold this high position.) Earl Warren. 75 next Saturday, after 13 years on the Supreme Court is the strongest and most influential chief justice in American history, with the possible exception of John Marshall. Marshall died in 1835 after 34 years as chief justice. He was not an intellectual, neither is Warren. Like Marshall, Warren is a tough-minded, practical man who is making the court a directly active force in American life and government. Then- effect will last forever in this country. Before Marshall, who took his seat in 1801. the court had been so weak and little regarded that the very first chief justice, John Jay, a rich aristocrat, resigned to be governor of New York. After a few years on the court, Warren, who had been governor of California three times, said, "I could not imagine going back to the other life." Marshall made the court as strong as the presidency or Congress. He believed in the sovereignty of the federal government over the states and in the sanctity of private property. His court protected both. The result was a strong central government which otherwise might have dwindled into a whisper. It laid the foundation for the future America. Many times in the years that followed, the court was wishy-washy, timidly bowing to the will of Congress or the White House, particularly after the uproar over the reactionary court which invalidated the early part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. For example: In 1896 the court ruled it was constitutional to segregate Negroes. In the next 58 years the court chipped away at this but never quite got up the courage of saying the 189& decision itself was unconstitutional. President Dwight D. Eisenhower ap* pointe d Warren chief justice in 1953 and a few months later, on May 17, 1954, 1 '-he nJine justices unanimously khocke d out segregation and the 1896 ruling by outlawing segregation in public s '-chools. Just getting unanimity among the other ei; ?M justices on this was a great achiever, nent for Warren. Congrt ?ss h;ad dillied and dallied with civil rigl its legislation more than a generatio n but never felt strongly enough a bout it to pass a law giving Negroes t he rights due them under the law since 187; >. In 1954 the court did what Congress had failed to face up to. It was denounced fc >r t his and later decisions. This didn't disturb Warren. Marshall and his cot irt had to endure the same thing. But once thie court had acted in 1954, Congrt ?ss: passed one civil rights act after anc >ttier and the court upheld them. Again Conj ?r-ess sat idly by while the rural populat ions of many states, outnumbered by the people in the cities, controlled stj ate legislatures through devices worke d out many decades ago. The Warrer. v court stepped in and forced a chang ^e, ruling that state must be redistricted for both houses of the legislature to : issure all citizens equal representation. The court's rule was one man. one v r ote. The Warren court has enforced the separation of ch urch and state, and extended the guar. antee s of freedom from unreasonable si marches and seizures, the privilege a gainst self-incrimination, the right t< "> counsel. The Marshall court had established the right of the o ourt to review any act of Congress or of state courts, the right of Congress to reg julate interstate commerce. In short, it made the central government iron-c 'lad. This enabled it to thrive and grow in strength. Wit. hou't the Marshall court the America; n experiment might have ended in chao, s. Without the Warren court the Unitec } SUates could hardly be the non-Comn luruist world's leader, for if segregation i re mained it would have made a farce of American talk of freedom. Fulton Lewis Speaks — *New Left 7 Screaming Persecution By U.S. By FULTON LEWIS JR. WASHINGTON — Leaders of the W.E.B. Dubois Clubs have lined up an impressive list of "peace" and civil rights leaders to protest against government "persecution" of the Communist-controlled group. Within hours after Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach labeled the organization a Communist front, DuBois Ciub officials had obtained expressions of support from virtually every group in the New Left. Elizabeth Sutherland, director of the New York office of the militant Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, condemned Katzenbach's attack and pledged solidarity with the DuBois Club leaders. Similar expressions of support were prepared by SNCC chairman John Lewis and the controversial Julian Bond. The Rev. James Bevel, an official of Martin Luther King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference, rushed to the defense of the DuBois Clubs. Yale Prof. Staughton Lynd announced that he was joining the DuBois Clubs as a "sign of solidarity with the first peace group the government has attacked," Dr. Harry Lustig, chairman of the physics department at the City College of New York, announced that he would serve the local chapter of the DuBois Clubs as faculty advisor. Other members of the New Left who sprang To the side of the DuBois leaders included Mrs. Dagmar Wilson, head of Women Strike for Peace; A. J. Muste, veteran pacifist and chairman emeritus of the Fellowship of Reconciliation; David Daily C i ACROSS 1 . Novel (5. Slopes 11. Weird 12. Largest city in Nebraska 13. Seed coverings 14.

Hugh Fowle; r, DuBois Club national chairn lan, told newsmen in Chicag. o vJie explosion was carried ou t by right-wing "extremists" op< ?raiting in collusion with certain Sam Francisco officials. The bo. mb ing couldn't have taken place "without some knowledge of the joolice or other authorities," he siiid.. The charge is irresponsible. There is speculation, in fact, that the explosior, > -may have been a "inside job" designed to w-n Fvmpaihy fo r the organization. Experts note that all DuBois Club membe'r'; left the building shortly befon 2 the blast. They brought with tht-m the vital records of the gr oup as a "precautionary" meas are. What is not generally known is that DuBois Club offi. :i als had agreed in late February to mov e the group's headt quarters from San Francisco to Chicago. Blaine Wishart. a EHiBois C!ub leader, was given the job of finding new offices rni the Chicago area and supervising the move. Wishart has attended Communist Party meetings in -San Francisco and Chicago. He was present during a secret training school for young Commun.ists held last September on an isc<- lated farm in northern Indiana-.Also during 1965, Wishart visited.' East Germany and worked in the San Francisco headquarters of the DuBois Clubs. Wishart and other DuBois Club leaders attended a closed- door Chicago conference over the last weekend in February. They mapped grandiose plans for the coming summer and scheduled a national convention for the Windy City in June. Recruiting drives have been scheduled for several cities across the country. They include Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. DuBois Club demonstrations wffl b e held to urge U.S. recognition of the Communist Viet Cong. Bible Verse A GOOD tree cannot bring forth «vil iruit, neither can a corrupt trfte bring forth good fruit. Matthew 7:18 Why Not Out/me 'Musts By HENKY McUEMOKE When small and backward countries seek independence, there is always much to - do about how ready they are for full sovereignty. The large and progressive nations argue for weeks and months, and even come to blows over the question. Wouldn't it simplify matters to have a set of requirements for a small and backward cation seeking independence? If the country could meet the requirements, it got independence. What about a set of requirements along this line? Is the small and backward nation capable of: 1. Producing a TV show with the aesthetic and educational values of "My Mother, The Car," "Peyton Place," and "I Dream of Jeannie."' 2. Polluting its rivers and streams with soap suds, millions of gallons of waste from industrial plants, and then killing off what fish remained by building dams. 3. Having college campuses where filthy speech, and obscene sandwich boards and placards are to be heard and seen. 4. Killing tens of thousands of its citizens in highway accidents each year. 5. Creating a Cold War of its own that would keep the world in a state of anxiety. 6. Establishing stores where mink coats and jewelled collars for pets were sold. 7. Creating snarls of traffic that would make it all but im- ppsible to drive a car in its cities. 8. Developing smog until it threatened the lives of its citizens. 9. Seeing to it that it had a crime rate that soared with the passing of each year. 10. Lining its highways with massive billboards that hid from view what little natural scenery there was left. 11. Producing musicians capable of matching the songs of the Beatles, the Rolling Stone;:, and the like. 12. Guaranteeing that the ap- proache to its cities would be lined with hamburger joints, garish neon signs, used car lot, motels, filling stations, and other lovely sights. 13. Spending more on whiskey and cosmetics than on education. 14. Half-starving its teachers. If a small and backward nation could live up to these requirements, and hundreds of similar ones, it would have the right to stand with the great nations of the world. To Feed Johnsons ODESSA, Tex. (AP) — Odessa's "Chuckwagon Gang" has been asked to put on a feed for Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson and her party when the First Lady visits the Big Bend National Park in West Texas April 2-4. The gang prepares Western- style barbecue and will prepare three meals for Mrs. Johnson and 40 members of the Washington press corps. •C'mon—Help Put Out the Fire! 1 i- c-..._ .-.-., •.•;• " " Washington Merry-Go-Round — Murdered AF Officer Is ed Security Risk Ca Palau Islanders often display sewing machines in their front windows as status symbols. By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON — Some private advice on how to outsmart and outsit the Communist world was given to Americans the other day by Sir Humphrey Trevelyan, long-time British Ambassador in Moscow "Now that I am no longer Her Majesty's Ambassador in Moscow," said Sir Humphrey, "I can tell you I told every British businessman who came to Moscow, 'Go out and get Russian business. Eventually the American win wake up to this goal. But until they do, you might as well get it and' help our balance of trade.' " As to the best method of dealing with the Communist world, Ambassador Trevelyan said: "What you Americans do not realize is that the more you criticize or oppose the Communists, the more you help them. It keeps them together. "The Communists are the most argumentative people in the world. They are always disagreeing with each other. Given a chance, they'll cut each other's throats. You finally realized this in East Europe, and you let them alone. As a result the Czechs, the Poles, the Bui- gars and the Hungarians, who never did like the Russians, are beginning to be more independent.

What you're doing is driving them into the hands of China. You have to remember that Ho Chi Minh is the George Washington of Southeast Asia. He is highly respected, both in North and South Viet Nam. You failed to cash in on it by ostracizing Ho Chi Minh during the early phases of the war. Now it's too late to use him." THE AIR FORCE isn't anxious to talk about it. but an officer engaged in security work has been murdered under circumstances which clearly show he was a security risk. The officer is Capt. Ray E. Moore, aide to Maj. Gen. Richard P. Klocko, commander of Air Force security at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. Moore was found dead, stark naked except for his wrist watch, in his apartment. An empty champagne bottle was alongside the body. Airman Thomas Beranck of La Crosse, Wis.. age 19. was arrested with the captain's revolver. He has been charged with murder, which authorities deduce occurred after or during a homosexual act, The airman had been giving On Final Runs AUSTIN, Tex.

Airman Beranck took the pistol, drove back to the base, fired the pistol a couple of times in the air. and was picked up by military police. The big question is why an officer with homosexual tendencies was kept on security work under Gen. Klocko. District Atty. James Barlowe in San Antonio states that Airman Beranck will be tried for murder March 23. REP. CHARLES R, Jones. R- N.C., listened for two hours to Defense Secretary Robert McNamara on military problems in Viet Nam at a meeting of the House Appropriations Committee. Finally he said; "I have not been to Viet Nam. I did my military service on a horse and got out when they dismounted the cavalry. The main conclusion I draw from what I have heard here is that if we were fighting the Indian war. with this modern, mechanized, sophisticated system, we would have lost it." "You are talking about the Indian war such as we fought in the 1870's and 1880's?" inquired Gen. Earle G. Wheeier, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. ,"Yes," replied the Congressman from North Carolina. "I think we would have had a high degree of success fighting an Indian war, particularly one that took place in the West, against the Sioux and the other mounted Indian warriors,' 'said Gen. Wheeler, "because horses do not like helicopters. We would have had a tremendous advantage there." Letter To The Editor Editor: The Sun Dear Sir: Secretary of the Interior Stewart L. Udall, in his chapter. "Guns and Our Natural Resources" in the 'World of Guns," credits American hunters and firearms industry with "some of the finest efforts in land and wildlife conservation that the world has known." Udall points out how excise taxes on guns and ammunition, requested by the firearms industry and by hunters, combined with revenue from hunting licenses and federal wildfowl licenses, have financed restoration of wildfowl nesting grounds and supported the work of state game departments and the Federal Bureau of Sports. Fisheries and Wildlife in maintaining and protecting wildlife populations by the purchase and development of land for game habitat, as well as by research hunter control, live trapping in prolific areas for restocking of barren habitats, and feeding of animals and birds doomed by adverse weather. The appointment of federal aid in Wldlife Restoration funds in 1964 totaled S1S.673.076. Add to this the nearly $4.200.000 "matching funds" contributed by the individual states — every dollar of both sums paid by the firearms industry and the hunter — and you arriv e at the question: How much have the anti-blood-sport proponents contributed? The fact is that, without the hunter arid his willingly paid money, there would almost literally be no game animals, no game birds, in America today. We, not the "little old ladies," are the people who are putting out money on the line. (And don't misunderstand me; I like little old ladies — provided they're ladies and willing to listen to the truth.) As Secretary Udall said at the conclusion of his "World of Guns" Chapter, "American hunters and the arms and ammunition industry, working in cooperation with state and federal agencies, are assuming that our great sporting heritage will be saved for generations of Americans yet to come." But it is not our great sporting heritage that is being preserved. The millions we are contributing for preservation of gainne birds and game animals that support that heritage also protects and provides habitat for the song birds and non-hunted animals. Those millions also buy, maintain and guard vast natural scenic arid wildernes areas that do and will provide outdoor recreation and pleasure for future generations of sighseers, camera adicts and bird watchers as well as for the hunters. We pay the bilJs. They share the benefits. Why tell you all this? Because not all of us of the hunting sportsmen are vocal enough, or well enough armed with the facts to combat their "ban hunting" attacks on our sport- Next time you are confronted by these tear-jerkers, give them facts. (If you need more, we'll furnish them.) You may not convince all of the "little old ladies." but you can convince most of their listeners. That's what counts. E. B.

BORN TODAY i Fourth president of the U.S., James Madison, was born in 1751 in Port Conway, Va. A Princeton graduate, he joined the struggle for independence on his return to Virginia in 1771. In the 1770s and 1780s he was active both in state politics, where he championed the Jefferson reform program, and in the Continental Congress. As much as any man, and more than most, Madison deserves to be called the "Father of the Constitution." He never missed a session of the Constitutional Convention, debated his points with wisdom and distinction, and compiled the best, and By RUTH RAMSEY Central Pretf Writer most complete account of the proceedings. He served as Jefferson's secretary of State (1801-09) and was himself president from 1809 to 1817. On his retirement from politics. Madison helped Jefferson establish the University of Virginia and served as rector from 1826 to 1836. Others born this day are actress Elsie Janis, actors Cornell Borchers and Conrad Nagel, comedian Jerry Lewis, publisher Dr. Alberto G. Paz, labor leader James C. Petrillo.

Even a top-notch declarer has to feel his way in the play of some hands without knowing: whether or not he is following the best line of attack. This is especially true at the beginning- of a deal, which is when declarer has the least knowledge of the composition of the adverse hands. However, despite this, an agile declarer generally aims in the right direction without committing himself irretrievably for the rest of the hand. He tries to keep something- in reserve in case the initial line of play he forms goes wrong-. South adopted the right course of play in this hand and came out well at the end. Having- won the jack of diamonds with the king-, he realized that all he had to do to make the contract was to win four ciub tricks without permitting East to come into the lead for a diamond return. Accordingly, he led a low club to the queen at trick two. West producing; the ten. and continued with a club towards his hand. When East followed with the six. South played the eight. West showing: out. It was then an easy matter to cash ten tricks and make the contract. Note that it would not have helped East to play the nine on the second club lead. Had he done this. South would have won with the king and later finessed against the jack to produce the same ten tricks. Note also that if the early club finesse had lost to the nine or jack — which South might well expect to happen — he would still have been certain of nine tricks as a result of the safety finesse. South's main concern in the hand was to keep East out of the lead, and the deep club finesse was made to order to prevent this from happening-, * (© 1966. King Features Syndicate, Inc.)
