Defense Asks FBI Files in Clinton Case fcy RfcLMAN MORlK feNOXVlLLE, Tenn. ffl - Defense attorneys in the Clinton segregation trial were battling today 'for complete access to the Northerly secret FBI files. They de^ 'manded to see exactly what they contain regarding the 16 accused men and women. * "We are going to try for everything we can get," a lawyer said. The defense already has obtained one document from the FBI file — a signed statement by Robert G. Grossno, chairman of the Anderson County (Clinton) School Board. But it has not seen a summary 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 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 schoolhouse. On trial today are 15 Tennes- seans, including a pregnant housewife. The 16th defendant is dark- haired John Kasper, New u Jersey segregation leader They are accused of flouting a federal injunction not to interfere with integrating the high school.

EddlC WcVCfS of Van Nuys, Calif./ 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.'sandbagged," said J. Benjamin Simmons, of Washington, ; P,C., who represents Kasper alone, "The defense asks for the records for the purpose pf preparing for cross - examination," said George W. Williams of Baltimore, former federal district judge. "They only want the file so they -can intimidate our witnesses, 1 ' 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. . "Gentleman — gentlemen —please," Taylor snapped. He quickly, restored order. Then he instructed Crawford to hand over ./'the one document, Crossnp's . signed statement. ' The basis for the angry dis pute was a recent Supreme "Court ruling that defendants in a ^criminal case are entitled, under certain circumstances, to study FBI"•'-files' to. impeach a witness .and to prepare a defense. , , ";• Defense lawyers did not disclose 'what Crossno's statement saidr 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, cleric in the federal court. Pope read into the record documents relating to the arrest of Kasper. Finds Sum of Cash Taken to Cleaners CHARLOTTE, N. C.'ftf-John E. David took police to the cleaners- looking for his pants, .
