Rights Murder Case
Federal Judge Charges 17 With
Misdemeanor; Ruling To Be Studied
MERIDIAN, Miss. (P)-The tough felony indictment in Missis-
sippis case of the three murdered civil rights workers was dismissed
yesterday-leaving 17 men facing a misdemeanor charge.
U.S. Dist. Judge Harold Cox, in granting a defense plea, said
no federal law was embraced by the federal indictment and therefore
his court had no jurisdiction. In Washington, a Justice Department -

SELMA, Ala. - Pi - A federal
judge conferred with Selma civic
leaders yesterday, reportedly in
an off-the-bench move to expe-
dite Negro voter registration.
Negro leaders meanwhile aban-
doned their street demonstrations
temporarily and devoted their at-
tention instead to a new right-to-
vote drive Monday and a spread-
ing boycott of white merchants.

and businessmen.

Oil exports, small manufactur-
ing and agriculture have all "n-
creased slightly during Leoni's
first year. Foreign reserves reach-
ed $870 million, an increase of
$80 million over the past year.
Meanwhile Leoni continues Bet-
ancourt's policies of agrarian re-

not a success thus far-and build-

WASHINGTON VP)-A proposec
constitutional amendment tha
would require congressional dis
tricts of nearly the same popula
tion was approved yesterday b3
the House.Judiciary Committee.
Under the proposed amendment
no congressional district couli
have a population varying by mor
than 15 per cent from the state'
average district.
In an attempt to curtail ger
rymandering, the amendmen
would also require that the dis
tricts be compact and self-con
tained.
As approved earlier by a sub
committee, the bill would hav
fixed 121/2 per cent as the maxi
mum population variation. An at
tempt to increase it to 20 pe
cent was defeated. Then ai

per cent was adopted.

-. file an appeal. There was no fur-
ther comment.
Ruling Sent
A copy of the ruling was sent
immediately to the department,
which recently clashed with Judge
Cox in blocking some perjury in-
dictments he wanted against civil
rights workers.
t Maximum Punishment I
- The charge thrown out by Judge
- Cox carried a maximum punish-
y ment of 10 years in prison and
a $5000 fine.
The second federal indictment
dpending against the men has a
maximum punishment of one year
e in jail and a $1000 fine. The
s defense wanted it dismissed, too,
but the judge did not mention it.
- It alleges conspiracy, involving
t law officers, to illegally punish
- the three men.
- Notcharges have been filed by
the state; the federal government
- cannot file murder charges in
e the case.
Grand Jury
- The Neshoba County Grand
r Jury had the case before it twice.
n Each time it was shelved on the
- ground that no investigation was
5 possible without all FBI evidence.
The Justice Department has been
loath to reveal all such evidence
before the federal trial.
Eighteen men were indicted.'
One of them-James E. Jordan-
ranks as a government witness.
His case was moved to Atlanta.
The defense dismissal appeal was
for 17 men.
Reconstruction Law
The felony dismissed was based
on an 1870 Reconstruction feder-
al law forbidding conspiracy to
deprive any citizen "of life or
liberty, without due process of
law," while he 'is exercising his
constitutional rights.

Since then Leoni has split lo-
cal Communists further by offer-
ing exile or pardon to those will-
ing to renounce violence.
Leoni also showed the military,
he was commander in chief last
year by firing the commandant
of the navy who objected to
Leoni's officer promotion list.
Some convicted rightwing officers
who rebelled against Betancourt
have been pardoned on good be-!
havior pledges.
He secured a congressional ma-
jority by welding his moderately
left Democratic Action Party into
a coalition with the further left
Republican Democratic Union and
the further right National Demo-
cratic Front.
Leoni, thus supported, plans to
push through a variety of legis-
lation stalled since 1959.
Oil Firms
U.S., Dutch and British oil com-
panies were privately annoyed in
January when, Leoni decreed the
government oil company will take
over some of their gasoline sta-
tions.
But the administration promgised
to negotiate a fair payment for
the stations in a program aimed'
at guaranteeing the state-owned
company 33 per cent of. the do-
mestic gasoline market by 1968.
Leoni drew fire from business
organizations for removing subsi-!
dies from a long list of import-
ed commodities. He wants to en-
courage domestic production and
create badly needed jobs.

WASHINGTON-Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey and Atty.
Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach made an unpublicized trip to the Capitol
late Wednesday to talk over voting rights legislation with a group of
liberal congressmen who recently visited Selma, Ala.
Meanwhile, Justice Department sources disclosed that the ad-
ministration is narrowing its plans for voting legislation to two key
areas-a "localized moratorium" on literacy tests and the limited,
last resort use of some kind of federal registrars where local registrars
are shown to discriminate.

WASHINGTON-The administration's school aid bill ran into
trouble yesterday in the House Education Committee over its for-
mula for funneling money to poorer school districts.
At the first session of the full committee on the measure, Chair-
man Adam C. Powell (D-NY) bypassed the main section of the bill
and said it would be taken up later. Another section, to make funds
available for the purchase of textbooks, was tentatively approved.
WASHINGTON-The House gave a strong vote of confidence yes-
terday to its controversial Committee on Un-American Activities.
It turned back a drive-supported mainly by big city Democrats-
aimed at the committee through reduction or investigation of its rela-
tively large, $370,000 appropriation.
