TC:£ - .1 FRANCES i.UERCUTH. • k Virginia SCC Decides It Lacks Authority to Probe Two Papers By th» Associated Press RICHMOND, Va., April 1.—The State Corporation Commission has decided it is without authority to conduct an investigation of Rich mond Newspapers, Inc., as directed in a resolution of the House of Delegates. The commission advised Gov. Tuck and the clerks of the House and Senate of the decision in a letter yesterday. The SCC said the investigation was not within the orbit of the general jurisdiction of the commission which, therefore, would have to consider that it was constituted a committee by the House for the purpose of making the investigation. “This being the case, it is essential: in our opinion to consider at the out set the extent of our authority to conduct such an investigation,” the SCC said. “In dealing with this problem, we must recognize that this resolution is not a direction of the General Assembly of Virginia, which under section 40 of the con stitution of Virginia possesses the legislative power of the State, but is rather a mandate of a single branch thereof, namely the House of Delegates. Resolution Quoted. “It is also true that the resolu tion directs an investigation and report to be made after adjourn ment sine die of the House of Dele gates. “In view of these facts and after j an examination of authorities bear ing upon the question presented, we are clearly of the opinion, which opinion appears to be supported by ! the overwhelming weight of au thority, that insofar as the resolu tion, aforesaid, attempted to be op ; erative after the adjournment of the \ General Assembly, it is without : force and effect and, accordingly, we are powerless to comply with its 1 direction.” Delegate Samuel Swanson of ; Pittsylvania, offered the resolution | to the House after the two Rich I mond newspapers had criticized ; legislative action editorially. Both the Times-Dispatch and the News Leader were critical of the House voting its members an extra $300 per member as an expense allow i ance as well as various other measures. Resolution Fails. An effort was made tc rescind the | resolution in the Assembly's “con I structive session” Tuesday, but : there was no quorum. Assistant Attorney General Wal ter Rogers had no official comment and indicated there would be none from the attorney general’s* office until Representative Almond, Demo crat, of Virginia, takes the oath of ; office as attorney general. Representative Almond has an i nounced he would resign from i Congress about the middle of April | to become attorney general of Vir ginia. He was elected at the re cent session of the General As sembly. Mrs. A.M. Minnick Dies; Was Nurse Here 20 Years j Mrs. Mary E.
