FBI Files in CI i By RELMAN MORIN KNOXVILLE, Tenn. <*) - De- iense attorneys in the Clinton segregation trial were battling today ^or complete access to the formerly secret FBI files. They dfr 'manded to see exactly what they contain regarding the 16 accused men and women. * "We are going to try for every^ thing we can get," a lawyer said, The defense already has ob talned one document from the FBI file — a signed statement by JRobert V G. Grossno, chairman of the Anderson County (Clinton) School Board. But it has not seen a summacy of the agents' reports on the violence at Clinton. This document is in the hands of'U.S. Dist. Judge Robert L. Taylor, who was withheld a ruling on whether defense attorneys are.en­ titled to examine the report, The FBI entered the Clinton >case last December after 1 riots had broken out over enrolling Negroes in the high school there. A Baptist minister, the Rev. Paul Turner, was beaten for escorting six Negroes to the schooljiouse. On trial today are 15 Tennes- seans, including a pregnant housewife. The 16th defendant is dark- haired John Kasper, New. Jersey segregation leader They are accused of flouting a federal injunction not to interfere with integrating the high school. It is the first state-supported high school in Tennessee to mix the races. A dramatic courtroom battle — with a dozen opposing attorneys on their feet at the same time —developed when the defense demanded to see the FBI files-! "We should have it now so we can prepare our case and not be forced to wait until we are.sand­ bagged," said J. Benjamin Simmons, of Washington, D.C., who represents Kasper alone. "The defense asks for the records for the purpose of preparing for cross - examination." said | George W. Williams of Baltimore, I former federal district judge. "They only want the file so they -can intimidate our witnesses," rumbled big-shouldered John C. Crawford, the U.S. district attorney who is prosecuting the case. That brought a greater storm of protest and objections from the defense side of the courtroom."Gentlemen — gentlemen —please," Taylor snapped. He quickly restored order. Then he Instructed Crawford to hand over the one document, Crossno's signed statement. The basis for the angry dispute was a recent Supreme Court ruling that defendants in a ,' criminal case are entitled, under certain circumstances, to study FBT files to impeach a witness i *n6 to prepare a defense. . Defense lawyers did not disclose what Crossno's statement- said. They indicated, however, that the* defense would demand full access to the FBI file on the government's key. witnesses*. Crawford opened his^ case by calling Byron Pope, clerk in the federal court. Pope read into the record documents relating to the arrest of Kasper.

He said Davenport is listed as a "critical target area." Cities in the "target area" classification are Burlington, Dubuque, Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Sioux City, and Council Bluffs. Ottumwa has been listed as a "possible target area." Fowler explained that each of the cities has been sent letters, to be opened at 10 a.m. Friday, by civil defense leaders. No one knows now which of the cities will be "hit." % "The director in the city 'at- j tacked' will call the state headquarters immediately for help," Fowler said in relating the procedure to be followed. He added: "We will evaluate the 'damage,' and if we can handle it on the state level we will do so. Otherwise, we will ask our federal headquarters for 'disaster designation' and for help. "It might be financial, 'medical, or we might ask for authority to draw medical and hospital and engineering supplies from the Federal Civil Defense Administration j at Hampton. "There is eight million dollars worth of equipment and supplies in the warehouse. It includes seven 200-bed portable hospitals, medical supplies such as antibiotics and serums, and engineering items such as generators and-water pipe to carry water 20 miles."

Also, he could commandeer all of the supplies in all of the drug outlets in the state. Fowler said. He added that he has invited! 2,350 ham radio operators to assist in the exercise. Fowler said the cities.other than the one "hit" will be declared "support areas."

Another part of the exercise calls for tests at 10 a.m. Friday of the air-raid warning systems in all of the 99 county seat towns. Reports from them on their tests will be due in Fowler's office next Monday. FREE DELIVERY WITHIN 25 MILES We Hove Oyer 100 of These Units to Sell • and-Timt Is Short... So Let's Deal!
