Court Reverses Contempt
Ruling in CivilRights Case;

By The Associated Press
The United States 5th Circuit
Court of Appeals reversed a con-
tempt ruling by District Judge
Harold Cox yesterday in New
Orleans against U.S. Atty. Robert
Hauberg in a sharply divided 4-3
Cox had held Hatiberg in con-
tempt last Oct. 22 after the at-
torney, on orders from Acting
Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach,
refused to prepare and sign grand
jury indictments of two Negroes
on perjury charges.
The clash between Cox and
Hauberg occurred when the grand
jury reported it wished to indict
the Negroes but Hauberg would
not draw up the necessary papers.,
Line of Command
Cox then ordered Hauberg to
prepare the indictments. The at-
torney declined, citing orders from
Katzenbach. The judge then or-
lered Hauberg jailed for contempt
and directed Katzenbach to ap-
pear in court to show cause why
he, too, should not be held guilty
of contempt for disregarding the
court's orders.
The action was stayed pending
appeal. Arguments were made be-
fore. the full court, sitting in At-
lanta last Dec. 18.
In the majority opinion, the
Appeals Court held that a judge
cannot require or coerce a U.S.
Attorney to sign an indictment.
"Exercise of Futility"
It follows that to require him
to draw up an indictment he is
unwilling and under no duty to
sign would be "to indulge in an
exercise of futility," the majority
opinion written by Judge Warren
L. Jones stated.
The three dissenting judges held
that a federal grand jury has an
unquestioned right to return an
indictment whenever it finds a
reasonable probability that a
crime has been committed.
Previous Testimony
The two Negroes involved had
previously testified before the
grand jury investigating the slay-
ing of, three civil rights workers
near Philadelphia, Miss., last sum-
mer. The grand jury subsequently
indicated 18 white men in con-
nection with the triple slaying,
partially on the basis of their
Cox said yesterday in Meridian,.
Miss. that he understands one of
the 18, James Edward Jordan, in-
tends to plead guilty to the con-
spiracy charges in the slaying of
the civil rights workers.
All 18, including Neshoba Coun-
ty Sheriff Iawrence Rainey and
Deputy Cecil Price, are scheduled'
to be arraigned before Cox today.
Separate Plea
t But Cox said Jordan might ap-
pear separately in Atlanta to en--
ter his plea.
Much of the Justice Depart-
ment's case reportedly is baped on
an alleged confession by Jordan.
He reportedly has been under
government protection since his
appearance before the grand jury
at Jackson Jan. 12.

anti-Nasser amendment to an
emergency farm appropriation bill.
The vote was 204 to 177.

United Arab Republic headed by
President Gamal Abdul Nasser,
was solidly backed by Republicans
and opposed by the Democratic

U.S. foreign policy although his
nation. has been receiving Ameri-

Rep.1 Robert H. Michel (R-Ill),
proposer of the bill, asserted that
Nasser has been diverting U.S. aid
funds, and using them to interfere
in the affairs of other nations con-
trary to U.S. foreign policy.

der other programs would not be

Riots Break Out In Viet :Nam


SELMA (M)-Riot-trained state
troopers moved into Selma yester-
day as a safeguard against vio-
lence, but a Negro right-to-vote
campaign went quietly-though
Thirty four Negroes arriving at
the county courthouse after the
allotted number of 100 prospective
voters had been assigned places
in line were arrested when they
refused to move. Others left peace-
Helmeted state troopers under
command of COl. Al Lingo re-
mained on standby duty at the
National Guard Armory on the
city's outskirts.
Guard Within
Sheriff James Clark and his
deputies joined city police' in
standing guard within the city,
but made-no effort to interfere
with the applicants lined up in
single file awaiting their turn to
take the v6ter registration t test.
Chief Deputy U.S. Marshall H.
Stanley Fountain also was on
hand to make certain that sher-
iff's officers and Negroes alike
complied with a federal court in-
junction guaranteeing prospective
voters the right to seek registra-
tion unmolested.
The injunction, issued by Dist.
Judge Daniel H. Thomas in thel
wake of mass arrests by sherriff's
deputies last week, was directed
against Clark and his men but

it also prohibited the Negroes
from unlawful assembly.
Lingo declined to say how many
troopers came to Selma with him,
but newsmen counted about 30
patrol cars at the armory.,
Restraining Order
Thomas' restraining order re-
quired county authorities to issue
numbered places in line to the
first 100 prospective voters arriv-
ing at the courthouse each day.
The court order provided further
that those still in line at the end
of the day must be given priority
when the board meets again.
Approximately 170 N e g r o e s
showed up this morning and the
deputy marshall told those with-
out numbers that they would have
to try again tomorrow, the final
registration day this week.
' A federal referee, the first in
Alabama, has already been ap-
pointed to handle voter registra-
tion in Perry County. Even so,
Negroes said the pace is still slow.

He proposed that the United
States "quarantine the war in
South Viet Nam and use American
air power and sea power to cut
off supply lines."
The Republican 1960 presiden-
tial candidate described his pro-

posal as "a very risky one," but
