Irked Writer Pulls Out Of Slaying Case Compromise Goes to House Floor— School Bill Faces Uncertain Fate By MARTHA COLE WASHINGTON MB — A compromise 1',4-billion-dollar school construction bill headed (or . an uncertain fate on the House floor today, j "If we clori't get a bill this year, we won't get any," Rep. Kelley (D-Pa), author of the compromise, told a reporter. "This is the second try." The House defeated a similar measure last year 224-194 after first tacking on an antisegrega- tioh amendment. Wire To Ike Twelve Democratic members of the House Education Committee sent a telegram to President Eisenhower urging him to make "an extraordinary appeal forthwith" to Republican House members on behalf of the measure. i The Democrats said they were confident that "a solid majority" of Democrats would support the bill as they did last year. "The. pending bill contains all the main features which you rec- 10 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, July 23, 1957 ommended in your message last January," the telegram said. "It is apparent that a shift of only a handful of Republican votes willi mean success this year." 1 Another appeal came from representatives of 21 national organizations, who requested Eisenhower to give "unqualified and publicly stated support" to the pending measure. Issues Listed Issues involved in the school aid controversy include economy, opposition to putting the federal government into a new spending field, disagreement on whether there is danger of federal control, and segregation. Last year the House adopted an amendment by Rep. Powell <D- NY) which would have denied federal . aid to school districts practicing racial segregation in the classrooms. Then the House killed the bill. "I think we can defeat the Powell amendment," Kelley said. "They remember what happened last year." Rep. Wainwright (R-NY) has said he will reoffer the "Powell' amendment. Powell has been re cuperating from a collapse. Eisenhower has been urging Congress since 1953 to enact some sort of legislation to help the»| states catch up on a backlog of classroom shortages. This year's bill, hailed as a. bi partisan compromise, would, authorize a five-year program of 300 million dollars a year in grants to the states, to be matched by them on a 50-50 basis. « Half the money would be distributed on the basis of school age population and half on the basis of financial needs. The U. S. Office of Education has compiled a table based on data submitted by the states showing that at the beginning of the last school year 159,000 additional classrooms were needed. public opinion in every state in the union," added Monday night what he termed "a prophecy:" "By the time Ohio wakes up to how the people feel about this case, they will be darned glad to have someone help them out of the mess they are in."

Reversed Decision Monday, however, O'Neill reversed his decision and cancelled the lie test after the "court" informed him that Wedler's statement may be "just plain deception." Bristling over the latest development, Gardner emphasized at a news conference that he will "absolutely not" see the governor. "I have no intention of seeing Gov. O'Neill without an invitation," he said, and then added: "However, I would like to talk unofficially with a member of his staff to explain our position and belief in the matter." Gardner said he felt the "Court of Last Resort" motives were misinterpreted in its investigation of the Sheppard murder. The "court", sponsored by Argosy Magazine, is an unofficial group of crime experts who seek to determine the innocence of persons they believe wrongly convicted of crimes. He said of his and the "court's" preliminary ' investigation into the Wedler "confession" that "I made no inconsistent or conflicting statements in my report to Gov. O'Neill . ... We have no desire to see Dr. Sheppard turned loose. We have no ax to grind. Many persons have pooh-poohed us (the "court") as a commercial enterprise, but I can assure you our interest in the matter is to see that justice is done." Gardner also asserted that unless a lie test is given Sheppard, Robert Olerichs Of Carnarvon on Eastern Vacation (Time* Herald Newt Servtee) Carnarvon — Mr. and Mrs. Robert Olerich and son Steven, left Thursday for Fort Wayne, Ind., and New Jersey to visit relatives for a few weeks. .
