Plan to Buy Out Wolfson Possible, He | Tells Harris |

Letter to Legislator Insists Congress Must First Restore CTC’s Franchise

By Richard L. Lyons

Btaf Reporter

Louis E. Wolfson said yes- lerday- he thought banker| Daniel W. Bell’s plan for Capital Transit Co. to buy out Wolfson’s controlling inter- est in it could be worked out if Congress restores CTC’s franchise.

Wolfson so stated in a letter to Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark.), wader of House conferees who will meet with a Senate group Monday to try to resolve wide differences between the House and Senate transit bills.

Harris released the letter

and indicated his support of Bell's compromise proposal that Congress restore the dy- ing CTC franchise as provided in’ the House bill to let Bell try to buy out Wolfson. if Bell cannot swing it, an in- férim public authority would)” take over and run transit after the franchise expifes on Aug. 14 (as proivded in the Senate bill).

Indications were that at least some of the six other House conferees might agree to this!

neral plan. Harris said the District Commissioners assured the House conferees at a meet-| ing yesterday morning of their cooperation if Congress ap- proves the Bell plan.

Suit to “Gag’

y Congress Rules Legislature | Can’t Be Curbed, Tosses Out Action

To Ban Handbook |

By John Lindsay Stafl Reporter

A divided, special three- judge court ruled here yes- terday that if Congress chooses to publish false, libelous and defamatory statements nothing in the Constitution “authorizes any- one to prevent” it

This also holds true for the President and the Supreme Court, according tu the majuvr- ity opinion in the unique case rendered by Chief Judge Henry W. Edgerton of the U. 8S. Court of Appeals and Circuit Judge E, Barrett Prettyman.

By its action, the divided court, over the vigorous dissent of Federal Judge Robert N. Wilkin, threw out the complaint of the Methodist Federation for Social Action which sought to ban publication of “A Hand- book for Americans.”

The pamphlet was prepared for publication and distribution by a Senate Subcommittee and describes the Federation as a “religious Communist frofRt.”

The Court denied it had con- Stitutional right to grant the Federation's motion, and, the opinion continued:

“We have no more authority to prevent Congress, or a com- mittee or a public officer act- ing at the express direction of Congress, from publishing a document than to prevent them from publishing the Congres- sional Record.”

The two judges said that to their knowledge no previous case existed in which it “has even been attempted to prevent publication of anything Con gress has ordered published.”

Judge Wilkin, whose injunc- tion earlier this month restrain- ing publication of the pamph- let led to setting up the three- judge court, dissented, saying “absolute prerogative passed out with ‘the Divine Right of Kings"”’

The privilege of the Legisla- tive branch extends only to matters of legislation, he wrote The Handbook is a “general publication,” Judge Wilkin Said, and “it seems clear . . (it)... is beyond the absolute privilege.”

The dissenting called attention to the Feder- ations complaint that it was not duly heard before the or- ganization was listed as a Com- munist Front.

“If the plaintiff is a Commu- nist front organization, it should be proceeded against according to the law which Congress has enacted. It should not be pilloried as a subversive agency before it has had an op- portunity to he heard,” Judge Wilkin wrote.

He added that when a con- gressional committee departs from the legislative halls and “enters the publishing business, it ought to be subject to the same provisions of law regard- ing slander and libel that apply to other publishers .. .”

‘An Outright Lie’

Asian-African Bloc to Press Algeria Peace

News Dispal

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y., May 25 Twenty-three Asian and African nations, in an ac- tion similar to that which last

year compelled France to walk out of the United Nations, to- day decided to place the bloody Algerian issue before the U.N. Security Council.

The Asian-African bloc’s de- cision was the third proposal advanced this week to halt the fighting between some 400,000 French troops and an estimated 15,000 Algerian rebels in the North African territory.

At least one of the proposals, by Indian Prime Minister Jaw- aharlal Nehru, was being stud- ied “with great interest,” a French Foreign Minister dis- closed today. The spol.esman made it clear, however, that France “does not necessarily agree” with the plan, which calls for recognition of the “national entity” of Algeria.

France contends that Algeria is a part of France, not a co- possession or protecto- rate, and last autumn she boy- cotted the United Nations for two months after Algeria was placed on the agenda, on grounds that the U. N. had no right to interfere with a “do- mestic” French problem

It was Nehru's chief spokes- man, V. K. Krishna-Menon, who devised the diplomatic maneuver to ease Algeria off the agenda and thus bring France back to the U, N.

A third Algeria peace plan has been presented to the Yugo- slav Foreign Ministry by a rep- resentative of Algerian rebel leaders. It calls for a three power committee composed of Yugoslavia, Italy, and an Arab nation—presumably Egypt—to supervise a cease-fire and free elections later under U. N. aus-

Foundations Would Help Universities In Project

President Envisions Two-Way Avenue

Of Knowledge, With Peace Hopes Aided

By Chalmers M. Roberts Sta Reporter

WACO, Tex., May 25 President Eisenhower pro- posed here today that Ameri- can universities with the sup- port of private foundations establish schools around the globe in a new “person-to- person partnership” designed to enhance “the prospects for a peaceful and prosper- ous world.”

The Chief Executive made the suggestion in a commences ment address at Baylor Uni versity where he received an honorary Doctors of Laws de- gree He flew here from Wash- ington in the morning, return- ing in the afternoon.

The President spelled out his

oposal to this extent

Each school “would help each nation develop its human and natural resources” by use of “modern techniques and sci- ences in areas of the world where the hunger for knowl- edge and the ability use knowledge are unsatisfied be- cause educational facilities are often not equa] to the existing need.”

® Each school would provide “a great avenue of communication,” bringing to Americans “new knowledge and wisdom out of the priceless values of another people's tradi- tions and proud heritage’ in exchange for “knowledge in the technical and scientific fields where we have had an earlier start.”

°“In no should the new signed “to transplant new area the attitudes, the forms, the procedures of A@mer- ica.” Rather, “the staffing, the conduct, the curriculum of each school would be the responsi- bility of the people where the school might be built.’

In his televised speech to 665 graduating seniors and some 11,000 spectators in the Heart O’Texas Coliseum here, Mr. El senhower, describing the threat of “a militant, aggressive Com- munistic doctrine,” declared that “in @eepest sense’ commu- nism is “a gigantic failure.”

That “failure” he said, .is shown dy the fact that hun- dreds of millions “still cling to their religious faith” while Hiv- ing in Communist lands, still want “justice and freedom” and still dream of “human frée- dom.”

The President's proposal came in a speech in which he developed this theme for his college audience: Although the See IKE, Page 6, Col. 1

Fire at Stevenson, Charges ‘Smear’

By Robert C. Albright Staff Reporter

ST PETERSBURG, May 25.—Estes Kefauver today accused Adlai Stevenson one of his Florida leaders of using “smear-and-smile” tac- ities in this State's presidential | preference campaign

Kefauver sharpened his at- tack on the former lilinois gov- ernor, in and around the ‘am- pa Bay area, as his campaign entered the iast four days.

To his many charges against Stevenson, Kefauver added a ‘new one—that the 1952 Demo-| cratic standard bearer allowed! a “Nixon-type’ attack to be} made on him. on the delicate segregation issue, by one ol his delegate candidatcs.

Furiously stumping the West Florida coast, Kefauver called reporters together and com- pared the attack made upon him as a far-left “sycophant’ | of Negroes, by former Gov.| Millard Caldwell of Florida, last Tuesday, to what he de-| scribed as the role Vice Presi- dent Richard M. Nixon played! in the 1954 campaign.

“There is a remarkable para- llel in the attitude Mr. Steven- son takse toward his delegate, Caldwell, and President Eisen- hower's attitude toward Nixon, when Nixon attacks Demo crats,.” said Kefauver.

“Nixon makes vicious attacks on the Democrats, and Mr. Eisenhower says he never read about them Mr Caldwell makes an attack on me, and Mr. Stevenson says he didn't hear it, even though he was ng right hehind Caldwell That's the same ‘smear and| smile’ technique the Republli- cans used in °52.”

Five hours later Stevenson had called a press conference to say that he had not heard Caldwell’s remarks. Stevenson said he was seated behind Cald- well but could sot hear a word he said.

If I had been sitting behind a delegate of mine, and I had learned of such an attack on Mr. Stevenson, I would not just have disclaimed responsibility,” Kefauver told the voters of this area. “I would have condemned and repudiated it and him.”

Kefauver said Stevenson ar- gued the case in defense of RCA in .he Supreme Court, in ithe suit brought by Zenith. He he was “sorry” to have ‘confused the two cases, but that Stevenson had remained silent on “great growth of monopoly” issue.
