Party Rebuffs Appeal
By Mrs. Roosevelt to Purge States' Righters By tht Associated Press Democratic leaders turned a cold shoulder today on the pro posal by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt that States’ Rights supporters be purged from the party. Senator McGrath. Democratic na tional chairman, told a reporter it will be up to the Democratic mem bers of the House and Senate to decide who gets the prized chair manships in the new Congress. He indicated the National Com mittee doesn't want to mix in any such possible fight. The Rhode Islander hinted fur ther—but didn't say so flatly—that any reprisal program such as Mrs. Roosevelt suggested wouldn't fit in with current efforts to solidify Democrats behind the legislative proposals President Truman will send to Congress in January. Favors ‘‘Permanent Ouster.” In a radio broadcast from Paris yesterday, Mrs. Roosevelt said she would like to see "the permanent ousting of the Southern Dixiecrats from the Democratic Party.” The President's widow suggested that some Southerners who opposed Mr. Truman's civil rights program would be denied congressional chair manships if they aren’t recognized! as Democrats. She named specifically Repre- j sentative Rankin of Mississippi, dubbing him "one of the worst re-; actionaries,” and Senator Johnston! of South Carolina. She said Senator Johnston ‘‘snubbed President Truman, cam paigned against him and then was one of the first on the train at Washington to congratulate the vic torious President after his election.” Refused to Attend Dinner. Senator Johnston refused to at tend the Jackson Day dinner here last winter because of his opposi tion to the President's civil rights proposals but later announced he was voting for Mr. Truman. He re fused comment on Mrs. Roosevelt's statement. But Democratic Committee offi cials said Mrs. Roosevelt was off base on Senator Johnston's cam paign record. William J. Primm.; assistant to Senator McGrath, said: "Senator Johnston was very helpful throughout the campaign. He has worked with the committee in every; way we asked.” Senator Johnston is expected to get the chairmanship of the Post; Office and Civil Service Committee.; Mr. Rankin is in line to head the House Veterans’ Committee. Answers Mrs. Roosevelt. He said at his home in Tupelo,] Miss.: "The less the American people hear from Mrs. Eleanor j Roosevelt, the better off the coun-| try will be.” Of 15 Senate committees, only five chairmanships will be filled by, Southerners if the congressional seniority rule stands. Eight Southerners are in line for House committee chairmanships, but except for Mr. Rankin, few if Sny openly opposed Mr. Truman after he won the nomination. Several of those made anti-Tru man speeches before the Philadel phia convention, but party leaders in the House have indicated the emphasis will _ be upon harmony father than punishment when the new Congress meets. Similarly. Democratic National Committee officials were said to hold no grudge against most of the Southern Senators—even in the four States of Alabama, Mississippi,' South Carolina and Louisiana which gave their electoral votes to Gov. J. Strom Thurmond and the States’, Rights ticket. Separate Group Recognized. Before the election, however, the1 National Committee recognized a separate pro-Truman group in South Carolina as the offcial party representative in that State. Gov. Thurmond, until then, had been a National committeeman. Mr. Primm said at the time the States’ Righters had "bolted” the Democratic Party. Senator McGrath said that as far as he is concerned the decision oust- j ing Gov. Thurmond still stands. He ] also pointed out that the States! whose electors cast their votes for the States’ Rights candidate risk a penalty in the next Democratic Na tional Convention. He referred to the four bonus or extra convention votes which will go to the States giving their electoral vote to Mr. Truman. Town Studies Expansion STEPHENS CITY, Va..

ARCADE-SUNSHINE Complete Chanting* Eisler Case May Bring High Court Ruling on Legality of Red Probe ly th« Associated Press A Supreme Court ruling on the question of whether the House Com mittee on Un-American Activities overstepped the bounds of constitu tionality in its drive against Com munists has been virtually assured. The high tribunal yesterday agreed to consider an appeal from Gerhard Eisler, alleged “No. 1 Communist” in the United States. He was con victed of contempt of Congress and sentenced to jail for failure to answer questions about his Com munist connections. The court also agreed to review another major case involving the constitutionality of the Taft-Hartley Act’s requirement that union offi cers must file non-Communist affi davits if they wish to use the facil ities of the National Labor Relations Board. Action on Lawson Delayed. The court refused for the time being to hear from John Howard Lawson, Hollywood writer convicted of contempt for refusal to tell the Committee whether he ever had been la Communist. The court, however, 1 left the door of appeal open for him later. It kept on its pending list a re newed petition from 11 leaders of the Joint Anti-Fascist Refugee Com mittee, convicted of contempt for S withholding Refugee Ctommittee rec ords subpoenaed by the House group. They had been denied a review last June. The Eisler. Lawson and Anti Fascist Committee cases involve parallel attacks on the whole con stitutional basis of the Un-American Activities Committees procedure. The Lawson and Eisler cases both involve much the same issue — whether the committee can compel witnesses to answer questions about Communist connections. ! Case May Dispose of Others. Thus the effect of yesterday's orders is to pick the Eisler case for a ruling which may effectively dis pose of the others. The Taft-Hartley law's require ment that union officials must file non-Communist oaths if they want to use NLRB procedures is the only major question in an appeal filed by the CIO American Communica tions Association. The court agreed to hear the case. . The action started in New York where the union sued to compel Charles T. Douds. New York regional director of the NLRB, to give the; communications workers a place on the ballot in a union certification election among employes of Press Wireless, Inc. A special Federal court upheld Mr. Douds’ refusal of the union's de mand. Mr. Douds acted under the Taft-Hartley law. 5 D. C.

'Bubble Gum Bandit' Sought lor $3,500 Food Store Holdup Dubbed the “bubble gum bandit" by police, a clever holdup man was sought today for the $3,500 robbery of the Giant Food Store, Tenth and U streets N.W. Before he walked into the store yesterday afternoon, demanded the money from the manager and then flattened him with a right to the head the robber had sought to dis guise himself. His right jaw was puffed out, per haps . with a wad of bubble gum, there was a white patch under his left eye and he wore large dark i glasses and a brown hat pulled down [over his eyes. Police said the man. described as colored, about 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 135 pounds, apparently knew the store well and was trying to conceal his identity from employes who may have seen him before. Familiar With Store Practice. He was familiar with the practice of the manager, Robert Garsh, 26, of 2808 South Ninth street, Arlington, of cashing checks for customers, and approached the store office with a green slip in his hand. Later, Mr. Garsh said he thought the slip was a Gpvernment check. The manager told this story: , When he unlocked the door of the office, a beaver-board cubicle with walls about 6 feet high, the “cus tomer” held his hand in his over coat pocket, threateningly, and ordered Mr. Garsh into the office. Told to get the money out of the safe, Mr. Gash opened it and showed the robber it was empty. “Not that one, the one under the floor.’ the man persisted. Then Mr. Gash opened a safe concealed under the boards and ex tracted the currency from a bag; which within a few minutes would1 have been picked up by a currency transfer truck. 15 Customers in Store. When the manager also withdrew a bag of change the bandit ordered him to put it back. Then taking out a brown paper bag. he stuffed! the bills into it. As Mr. Garsh straightened up the intruder hit him below the left eye with his fist. Mr. Garsh is the son of Harry Garsh. a prize fight manager, but has had no ring experience himself, police said. About 15 customers were in the store. At least two remembered seeing a man leave the office with a brown sack and walk unhurriedly out the door. They had no idea he afsf&r* rijgfc A clerk’fotind Mr. Garsh lyfhg bn the floor of the office. The mana ger was treated for shock at Gar field Hospital and released. He will go through photographs at police headquarters today in an effort to identify his'assailant.

The agreement W’ith ship operators —subject to ratification by the em ployers and the membership of the International Longshoremen’s Asso ciation, AFL—provides a basic wage increase of 10 cents an hour and other benefits. Longshoremen on the Gulf Coast had agreed to follow the laad of the union here in East Coast action. Thomas R. Steutel, conciliator of the Federal Mediation and Concilia tion Servioe, announced the settle ment was reached at 1:20 a.m.. after an 11-hour session of union and em ployer representatives. I In addition to raising the. day shift straight-time ' hourly wage from $1.75 to $1.85, the agreement provides: A 15-cent rise in the $2.61 hourly rate for night and week-end work; a one-year contract running from last October 1 and retroactive to last Septeember 15; a guarantee of four hours’ work when a long shoreman starts on the job, and lib eralized vacations for men working 1,250 or more hours a year. The union originally demanded a pay increase of 50 cents an hour. An offer of a 10-cent increase was rejected last week in a vote by longshoremen in East Coast ports from Portland, Me., to Hampton Roads, Va. The union said at that time, however, that the operators’ 10-cent offer might be accepted if the men were granted other points, I including a one-year contract and a guarantee of four hours’ work.

Friends Say Mitchell Would Like To Stay as Civil Service Head By Joseph Young * Associates of President Harry B. Mitchell of the Civil Service Comrtiisslon say he would like to remain on the job after December 131, the date he had planned to retire. Mr. Mitchell, who has headed the commission for nearly 16 | years, made his decision to retire some months ago. But the election results last week caused him' to reconsider, his friends say. A Democrat, Mr. Mitchell con ceivably could remain as com mission p r e s i dent. Adding to his inclination to remain is the fact that his son, Hugh Mitchell, has just been 'elected to Con gress as a Repre ! sentative from Washington State. Mr. Mitchell had intended to Joseph Yount. return to the West the first of the year. But. now that his son is com ing to Washington. Mr. Mitchell is said to want to remain here. Any decision on Mr. Mitchell's continuance in office rests with President Truman. The commis sion chief reached the retirement Age earlier this year and was con tinued in office to the end of the year. The continued appointment could have been made indefinite, but at the time, Mr. Mitchell asked President Truman to continue it only to December 31. Now, the next move is up to j President Truman. Many of Mr. Mitchell's long-time associates in the commission are hoping he re mains on the job. * * * * NEW CHAIRMAN DUE—Repre sentative Murray, Democrat, of !

A Senate Civil Service subcom mittee. headed by Senators Flanders and O’Conor, want to go ahead as soon as Congress convenes in Janu ary with separate legislation for salary increases for the Govern ment's top 218 officials. Then the bulk of the Government’s classifica tion act revisions would be consid-\ ered in another bill. 0 But several House committee members; including Chairman Rees and Representative Murray, Demo crat, of Tennessee, who Will be his successor as chairman, are reported to feel ft little differently. They feel that classification act revisions should be considered in one bill on a "top to bottom" basis. I Otherwise, it’s said, pay revisions •.for the bulk of the Federal service would run the chance of being ig nored as they have been in the past. * * * * EXPANSION PREDICTED — The housing agencies here are all set for an expanded personnel force in : the near future. They base this estimate on Presi dent Truman's announced goal of getting a housing bill through the next Congress as fast as possible. With a Democratic Congress due to take over in January, the feelin'i is that Mr. Truman will get what he wants in the way of housing leg islation. And housing officials say | that will mean a sizable expansion of their personnel force. * * v * ECA—Foster J.
