Elsa Maxwell Wants Mitchell 'Glamorized' Globe-trotting, party-giving Elsa Maxwell wants to “glam orize” National Symphony Conductor Howard Mitchell. Miss Maxwell feels that Mr. Mitchell has too much dignity and wants him to acquire some of Leonard Bernstein’s flair for the dramatic and sensational. She called the two conductors "America’s best,” but com- plained that Mr. Mitchell li “practically unknown” outside of Washington. The National Symphony ought to be on television more, she said; “they should be sent to Europe, to the London festi val to let everyone know * hat a wonderful, really wonderful, orchestra you have here." “I just wish your Mr. Mitchell had a little of Leonard Bern stein’s flair for the sensational to catch people’s eye.” Miss Maxwell said, but she made it clear that she thought Mr. Bernstein (conductor of the Bar Group Hits Court's Critics PHILADELPHIA. Mar. 4 (AP).—The Philadelphia Bar’ Association yesterday repudi ated recent criticisms of the United States Supreme Court made by the American Bar As sociation. More than 450 Philadelphia lawyers, after a stormy verbal' session, voted 288-183. for a resolution which stated the local froup "affirms its faith in the Supreme Court in its traditional role as interpreter: of the Constitution and as a protector of our cherished free dom and of the rights of the individual against invasion of his constitutional rights and liberties.” The American Bar’s House of Delegates has attacked some of the rulings by the Nation's highest tribunal as weakening the internal security of the country. Morris L. Forer. who offered yesterday’s resolution as chair man of the bar's Civil Rights Committee, said “such criti cisms should be repudiated.” j Efforts to table the resolu tion failed. C. Brewster Rhoads, former chancellor of the association, said it was pre sented suddenly without per mitting members to give it a •’lawyer-like sound Judgment.” Mr. Rhoads called the reso lution "hasty, unreasoned, un thoughtful criticism of the House of Delegates of the American Bar Association.” Another former chancellor, State Supreme court Justice Thomas D. Mcßride, spoke against tabling the resolution, pointing out that it couldn’t be "dumped now without grave misunderstandings.’’ “The criticisms of the United States Supreme Court have got ten beyond the tolerable points," Justice Mcßride said., “They (the court) have been held up as the whipping boy. I don’t care if it is criticism of the ABA. The resolution must not be permitted to die.” The ABA, in its criticisms, particularly emphasized the rulings in cases involving ac cused Communists. It recom mended that Congress pass remedial legislation which would blunt the Supreme Court decisions. ■ NEW! Electrolux Automatic WORLD'S ONLY Jffijy / FULLY AUTOMATIC CLEAN KRI futures!
