Open First Evidence in Clinton Cose By RfcLMAN MORtN KNOXVILLE. Tenn. rfi — Federal attorneys set out today to unveil the evidence in the charges against ift segregationists accused of forcibly interfering with enrollment of Negroes ift a small-town Tennessee high school. "This lawsuit is shaping history." a defense lawyer solemnly aserted itt U.S. District Court. The trial, involving integration at Clinton, Tehn., High School, has been heralded as a major test of the U.S. government's power to enforce the Supreme Court order lo end segregation in the public schools. The jury, 10 men and two worn«n. was completed late Tuesday. On trial are 15 Tennesseans, including a pregnant, teen-age housewife. The 16th defendant is John Hasper, lanky, owl-eyed native of New Jersey. He is accused of coming to Clinton and stirring up the riots that took place when Negro students entered the high school. Kasper, like the other 15, is being tried for criminal contempt. All are accused of violating a federal court injunction against interfering with racial integration at the, school But neither he nor the battery of lawyers defending the Tennes- seans concealed their distaste for the joint trial. Kasper is represented solely by J, Benjamin Simmons, Washington, D. C., attorney. ' Kasper told a reporter: "They (The other defense lawyers) came into this when they heard money was being raised. Politics and publicity were behind it too." Robert L. Dobbs of Memphis, spokesman for the defense lawyers, said there is no coordination of any kind with Simmons. "I don't know what he plans to do,-or if he,will call any witnesses or anything else," Dobbs said. "I don't suppose Simmons is any prouder of being with us than we are of being with him." » Lawyers for "The 15" — as they describe themselves in court — claim there is so much "mass prejudice" against Kasper that the joint trial works to the disadvantages of their clients. Four Negroes, were among the 31 people examined for this jury. The government accepted two. The defense challenged them all. In all, defense lawyers used peremptory ch'allenges_ to dismiss^ "eightf candidates. Government attorneys challenged three.' The other eight were excused "for cause" —that is, when they said they had firm convictions on 'segregation in the schools, "mixing the races," or some of the other highly • charged aspects of the case. Questioning, by the , opposing lawyers foreshadowed a major area of battle in the trial. , " ! U.s; Dist; Atty; John C- Craw„ ford pounded at the candidates on one theme—respect for law; even when they disagreed'with a legal order. "Do you believe a citizen has a 1 right to decide for himself which law-he will obey anxUwhich 'ones he will not obey?" In swift- reply, when his turn came,, Dobbs asked whether, the candidate knew the rights guaranteed-by the Constitution and the , Bill of Rights. "Do you believe every person has « right to ex> press -his" opinion about a law? Do you believe in freedom of speech, of the Tight to assemble? Would you grant those freedoms to these 15. defendants?" I W»dn«d«y, July 15, IK? Expect Ruling On Girard Cose : WASHINGTON UK — The Su preme Court* appeared likely today to issue an early decision in the case ofGI William 8, Girard. 1 The court itself did not rule out the possibility of a decision sometime today. Neither did it indicate just when it might be announced, The eight justices listened to four, hours of legal arguments Monday, then considered the case for 4 hours and 46 minutes Tuesday. • . . . Afterward, the clerk's office *told newsmen there would be "no announcement of any kind tonight." A court spokesman added that he could give no information as to when there might be one.

(U.S. Navy Photo) Japanese Prime Minister Forms A New Cabinet TOKYO W) — Japanese Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi Wednes day dismissed the cabinet he in herited Vk months ago from Tan zan Ishibashi and formed an al most completely new government. t Kishi retained only, Hirohide Ish Ida, the chief cabinet secretary, and Mitsujiro Ishii, his own appointee as deputy prime minister. Ishida was moved up to labor minister.' The cabinet shakeup had been expected for some time. Few changes in the Conservative government's policies were expected to result from the reshuffle, which was done to reconcile rival factions in the ruling Liberal-Democratic Party rather for policy reasons. All 17 ministers submitted their resignations to a special cabinet meeting. ~TThe prime-minister--,—who—had been foreign minister in Ishiba shl's short-lived government, had kept the previous cabinet to avoid a factional fight that might have interfered with.his trips to Southeast Asia and the "United States, Formation of the, new cabinet w,as; assured earlier Wednesday when Aiichiro Fujiyama, popular 60-year-old businessman, accepted : the key post of foreign minister in the' new cabinet. Kishi .had retained the foreign minstery after Ishibashi stepped put because of illness. Fujiyama is a leading backer, of Kishi's scheme to develop anti- Communist Asia with American financing and Japanese technology and products. He is friendly'to America but also wants to expand trade with Red China. Avert 'Gang Fight' Involving Teen-Agers SIOUX CITY («—Police said early Wednesday that they had headed off what appeared to be scheduled "gang fight" between a group of Sioux City teen-agers and airmen from the Sioux City Air Force Base. Investigating officers took 15 airmen to the police station, along with five 16 and 17-year-old youths. Police Sgt. Fay Golden quoted the airmen as saying that they were "tired of being .ganged upon by groups of civilians." The Sioux City youths were tak< en home after their parents were notified to come and get them. The airmen were allowed to return to the air base, Officers said they promised not to attempt to organize any gang fights. Golden said a report was received at police headquarters thai groups of youths were assembling at various places in the fashionable old section in the north part oi the city late Tuesday night. Officers also said they had re ceived reports that a clash was scheduled at 38th and Jackson streets. The youths taken to the police station told officers there were seven to 10 cars of airmen cruising about and a taxi driver told police he saw several far loads of teenagers congregated at Grandview Park. Sgt. Golden lectured both groups at the police station and told them "gang fights are not the way to settle differences." Experts Split on Khrushchev's Real Power Following Shakeup .tOBN M. ttiOflfO%filt| I from Communist sources, mainly sion that Khrushchev is building WASHINGTON (*t-U.S. experts j in Eastern Europe, that Khrush- oft Russia were reported split to- chev's foes in the Presidium pre- day on their estimates of the I cipitated the crisis that resulted amount of real power now exer- in their ouster They were V. M. cised by Soviet Communist party Chief Nikita Khrushchev in the wake of the Kremlin shakeup. '.So far they have come'up with three estimates possibilities: covering major 1. Khrushchev is well along the way to becoming a virtual dictator. The system of collective rule which was installed upon Stalin's death for years ago is doomed. 2. Khrushchev is still the "first among equals" or ^he "chairman of the board" of a collective rule system. With his most formidable critics out of the way, however, he can now expect far more support and much less opposition. a. Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov may be the real strong man. Zhu- kov represents the military power, and Khrushchev could not have continued as Communist party boss without his support. No Hard Information These varied theories reflect a lack of hard information. M o 1 o t o v, Lazar Kaganovich, Georgi Malenkov and Dmitri Shepilov. Khtjishchev has accused the four of trying to seize power. They have been denounced for wanting to return to Stalinism, which seems to suggest that they favored a reversion to dictatorship and that Khrushchev and Zhukov were against .it. U.S. official say privately they are not at all certain what issue focused the dissension or even whether the policy questions were of vital importance in the crisis. Personal ambitions on the part of some of the ousted men, particularly Malenkov and Shepilov, who are both relatively young men, may have provided the real motivations on their side, Await Development Informants said that what the Khrushchev group now does with the men may indicate how he will develop his power, assuming he State Department officials have j is the strong man.

CENTERVILLE UB—jail terms h.mself mo a dictator by wiping hflve been imp0sed in District out opposition. But if these ( men are simply consigned to political oblivion, the tendency will be lo think that the present Soviet leadership Wants to continue to prove that it has really abandoned the ruthless ways of Stalin, that it wants collective leadership to work, and that while it cannot tolerate conspiracy in high places it has some tolerance for the conspirators as individuals. Regional Interests One of the intetesting aspects of the shakeup is that the new men added to the enlarged Presidium generally represent regional interests. They have not heretofore been identified with the national administration of the Soviet Union. This may be linked with Khrushchev's efforts to decentralize operations of industry in the Soviet Union, but it also may represent a power play on his part to bring into top party positions men who owe him their success. Everyone seems 'to agree that Zhukov's support, was vital to Khrushchev's survival, but beyond that the marshal's role is highly uncertain. Martins Return From Trip West Dr. and Mrs. John E.

Helicopter To Rescue of Peak Climber KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Calif. uft-The life of & critically injured mountain climber depends today on the ability of a helicopter pilot to land and take off on rugged 14,000-foot Palisade Peak. A furious Sierra thunderstorm Tuesday night—and the usual vagaries of the air currents at. that altitude—posed formidable odds. "It's his only chance," said Dr. Henry Jakes in a terse radio report describing the condition of 23-year-old John Findley Scott, University of' California student who suffered internal and other injuries in a 40-foot fall Sunday, "He could never- live through being packed out. He needs immediate hospitalization." The doctor and park ranger James Barton arrived at the' crude base camp on Upper Palisade lake Tuesday night. Scott was taken to the camp after his removal from a lifty ledge by six mountaineers Monday. The last portion of the trial to the camp was so steap the doctor and ranger had to leave their horses behind. The vital question was: Could a helicopter land and take oil at that treacherous, high altitude- even in good weather? Helicopter piltos said yes, if it were the right type of craft with a good pilot and went in lightly laden. The Bell G2—in which pilot Bill Davidson hoped to make the attempt ,—was considered good enough to operate at the 14,000- foot area, although it is "a critical altitude," Davidson made several exploratory passes over the area Tuesday and dropped supplies and medicine. He reported it would be difficult to find a "safe'.* place to land. If the helicopter canlt'land, Dr. Jakes said, there would be no alternative except lo start out with Scott on'a stretcher. That would take four days. trip Great volcanic eruptions throw so much fine dust into the air that "spectacular" sunsets follow for months afterwards. , John Swanders Fly Home for Weekend , (Ttmen Herald News Servie«V MANNING — Mr. and Mrs. John Swander and children, who are spending the summer in Iowa City, flew home for the weekend.
