tate Court Finds
Eluff in Contempt
Saginaw Judge Will Challenge.
Decision in U.S. Supreme Court
LANSING (P)-Circuit Judge Eugene S. Huff was found in con-
empt of the Supreme Court yesterday in a history-making case
esting administrative powers of the high court.
The quiet, slender jurist from Saginaw, 11 years on the bench,
assed up an opportunity at the end of a 90-minute hearing to escape
unishment by bowing to an edict to sit temporarily in Detroit.
Instead, he announced to the eight supreme court justices that
e would carry the challenge of, their authority to the United States
upreme Court.

Lebanese Cabinet
Supports President
BEIRUT, Lebanon (P) - Pro-
Western President Camille Cha-
moun yesterday won the first
round in a bitter fight against
rioting opponents who tried to
break him.
At the end of a week of turmoil,
President Chamoun seems to be
gaining strength hourly and his
opposition is becoming demoral-
ized. An anti-government general
strike has lost its punch and most
cities are tranquil again after de-
structive rioting.
Security forces drove rioters
from the streets of Beirut and
other key cities.
President Chamoun's Cabinet
rejected feelers from the opposi-
tion for a compromise settlement.
Oppositionleader Saeb Salam,
who supports President Gamal
Abdel Nasser of the United Arab
Repubdlic, has found many of his
colleagues weakening.
Christian elements in the oppo-
sition feared Salam intended to
turn Lebanon into a Moslem-domi-
nated republic and destroy the
delicate power balance between
Moslems and Christians.
Presiderit Chamoun reportedly
rejected a compromise proposal
under which he would remain in
office until the expiration of his
six-year term in September.

Rep. James Warner (R-Ypsl-

Prof. Henry Bretton of the po-
litical science department said the
remarks attributed to Rep. Warmer
illustrated how the cause of higher
education had been "misrepre-
sented, misinterpreted, and ma-
ligned" ,by certain legislatois.
Claims Pay Diverted
Rep. Warner said Thursday
"when the University created the
job (vice-president), it diverted
a large sum of money away from
needed pay raises for other faculty
"The allegation' that funds for
pay raises for 1700 faculty mem-
bers were diverted to pay the
salary of one administrator is
absurd," Prof. Bretton declared.
It is disturbing, he added, that
such a statement would come
"from a member of the distin-
guished Ways and Means Commit-
tee, which is responsible for the
proper evaluation of appropria-
tions ranging above $300 million
Sallade 'Shocked'
Rep. George Sallade (R-Ann

He added that "irresponsibility

The Ypsilanti representative's
f lone praise came from Cecil Creal,
Washtenaw County Republican
chairman, who felt Rep. Warner
basically "has- the interest of the
University at heart."
Rep. Warner voted along with
other Republicans for a University
appropriation of $30 million, a
'V slash of nearly $1 million. He
claimed he had favored a larger
appropriation while in committee.

WASHINGTON O)--An inquiry

Vice-President Richard M. Nixon
on his Latin-American tour was

anti-American violence elsewhere.
The committee decided to broad-

ies in Lebanon.
Chairman Theodore Francis
Green (D-R.I.) said the committee
also would look into other recent
incidents, but he didn't specify
them. There has been anti-Ameri-
can rioting in Algeria and last
week rifle fire spattered around
the residence of the United States
ambassador in Haiti.

Judge Huff to relinquish his post
as presiding Judge in Saginaw to
Circuit Judge, Timothy C. Quinn
of Caro for one month starting
next Monday, and to take up1
duties on the Wayne County Cir-
cuit Bench for that period.
Shortly before, Justice Dethmers
had sharply rebuked the bachelor
jurist for his "contemptuous atti-
tude" and for dilatory execution of
h}is judicial office.
- Judgement 'Not Harsh'
"This is a sad day in the history
of judicial operations in Michi-
gan-in the annals of state his-
tory-and in no way because of
harsh or oppressive o'r arbitrary
conduct by this court," The Chief
Justice said.
' Justice Dethmers said Judge
Huff had allowed a backlog of
cases to pile up, had allowed mo-
tions to go undecided for a year
or more and driven lawyers else-
where in pursuit of reasonably
prompt justice for their clients.
To top it all off, he said, the
Saginaw judge had "flagrantly and
contumaciously defied and dis-
obeyed" a Supreme Court order,
with the purposeof putting things
right, he said.
"That, Judge Huff, is the record
on which must be judged any -ole
of maryrdom on your part," Jus-
tice Dethmers said.

Defense Reorganization
Bill Approved, b Gou
WASHINGTON (M--The House Armed Services Committee yes-
terday approved a defense reorganization bill giving President Dwight
D. Eisenhower most of the military command streamlining he asked,
but less than he wanted in administrative control.
President Eisenhower served notice that he will try to have the
bill reshaped on the House floor to conform more closely with the
recomendations he sent Congress two months ago. He did this in a
letter commending the committee's product "by and large."
With relatively minor exceptions, the committee bill would make
the changes in the structure of the military establishment which
