Davenport, paid no federal income tax in the years 1950 through 1953, B. Lee Phillips, Iowa district director of internal revenue, testified in Federal District Court here Monday. The Davenport firms sells janitor, restaurant and bar supplies. Its president, Oswald Blumer, and its secretary-treasurer, Janet Peavey, are on trial on charges of willful evasion of income taxes for those years. Phillips identified returns of the firm back to 1926. He said a net loss of $3,673 was shown in 1950; of $556 in 1952 and of $1,619 in 1953. The 1951 return, Phillips said, reported a net income of $3,249 but no tax was paid for the year because the net was more than- offset by the reported 1950 loss. The indictment charges that the corporation's total net income for the four years was $50,645 and the tax due $13,748. John C. Stevens, assistant U. S. district attorney, told the jury that books and records of the corporation was so "inadequate" that tax agents had to use the net worth procedure to determine its income. Martin F. McCarthy, Davenport lawyer for the defendants, said in his opening statement that the corporation had a civil liability for taxes due. But, he said, that was due to the lack of bookkeeping knowledge by Mrs. Peavey, daughter of Blumer, and declared there was no intent to defraud the government. McCarthy said Blumer and Mrs. Peavy would testify in their own defense. Nashville- (Continued from Page 1) Monday's most boisterous opening day demonstrations. They were charged with failing to move on. At Caldwell school 11 persons were arrested as a crowd of 100 tried to break through a police barricade. U. S. District Judge William E. Miller, whose order ended compulsory segregation in the first grade here this fall, said he would confer later Tuesday with U. S. Dist. Atty. Fred Elledge Jr., about the blast. Oliver blamed the violence and destruction on "flames of hatred fanned by race agitators." No Negroes had been expected to enroll in the predominantly white east Nashville school district and it was the only one of the six racially mixed schools that escaped without segregationist demonstrations. The schools admitted a total of 15 Negro first-graders in their first step toward court-ordered desegregation. There are 3,500 first grader's including 2,000 whites among the city's 18,000 school pupils. The dynamite blast came only a few hours after police had dispersed a violent crowd of about 500 segregationists who were smashing windshields and windows of Negroes automobiles with bricks and bottles as they passed Fehr school. Focal Point Fehr, which is located in a borderline Negro-white residential district, was the focal point of much of Monday's disorders. Three persons were arrested in the day and night disturbances, including one woman who was arrested twice. No injuries have been reported so far. Police Sgt. John Irwin said he found a detonating cap wire at the scene. He said the dynamite apparently was exploded in the school's entrance hall between the library and a classroom. The concussion ripped through the building, tearing down walls and blasting every window from the one-story structure. Asst. Supt. W. H. Oliver had this comment immediately on learning of the blast: "This is no longer a matter of segregation or desegregation. This is a matter of sheer lawlessness. We're up against thugs. This is the result of, a flame that has been fanned in Nashville by some local agitators and some outside agitators. "I hope this will at last waken the law abiding citizens of this community to the problem we're up against." Oliver said early this morning a decision would be reached during the day on where classes would be held for Hattie Cotton pupils. He added it was doubtful such decision would come before school opening time. BREAKS LEG Mrs. John F. Muenchow of Arcadia broke her left leg above the ankle when she fell in the basement of her borne Monday.

Calls both to s, central police headquarters and to the high school said a bomb had been placed in the block-square downtown building to go off at 9:59 a.m. Fire bells rang at the school and the students marched out promptly. Police, on guard against any new violence or against any new attempt to enroll Negroes, blocked off the streets surrounding the school. Police Capt. J. W. Garrison said the call to the school came at 9:45 a.m. and the building was emptied in orderly fashion within about five minutes. The high school students, many of them laughing or smiling, marched across a street into a park. This development followed swiftly after police broke up a noisy anti-integration demonstration at Woodlawn High, in - the eastern residential area. About 75 to 100 Woodlawn students made up a shouting throng as they refused to attend classes. Some yelled "no Negroes will get by us." Police threatened to turn a fire hose on them and they marched away from the school. A score or more of the Woodlawn demonstrators shortly appeared at Phillips, some three miles away, and were turned away by police. No Negroes had shown up either at Woodlawn, with 3,000 enrollment, or at Phillips by 10 a.m. The Rev. F. L. Shuttlesworth, beaten by whites Monday as he attempted to enroll four Negroes at Phillips, had planned to take them back there Tuesday but his plans became indefinite when he learned that police would not allow Negroes to enroll.
