Ore. statute requires Bds. to furnish free texts to all children attending schools which maintain Ore. Bd. of Educ. standards. Feb. 4, 1960: Cir. Judge upheld constitutionality of Act, citing U.S.S.C. decisions in Everson and Cochran, but argued that such decisions do not square with First Amendment: "This court believes that the questions of whether the benefits of free textbooks are to the child or the school; whether there is a direct or indirect aid to the teaching of religion; whether it is a proper exercise of the public welfare power of the state are all beside the point. There is only one question: Does the furnishing of free textbooks to parochial school pupils help or foster the teaching of religion in any degree whatsoever? If it does, it is contrary to the First Amendment. The answer is obvious". Appeal to Ore. Sup. Ct. pending.

295.1. Re Nedrow and Shipman. (Calif. Unemp. Comp., Division of Appeals, L.A. ##04905, 06119.) Mar. 15, 1960: S. Calif. Music Co. and Thearle Music Co. ordered all employees to take polygraph tests as condition of continued employment. Claimants, and others, refused and were discharged or quit. Unemployment compensation benefits were denied. Jy. 11, 1960: on appeal, Div. of App. Referee reversed, held: "The condition of undergoing a lie detector test was not a condition of employment at the time of hire and the claimants cannot, therefore, be held to have breached a contractual obligation. The referee cannot, therefore, find that the claimants refusal to submit to the test was conduct evincing a wilful or wanton disregard of the employer's interests. Rather, the referee finds that to require the claimants to undergo a lie detector test as a new condition of employment was in fact an invasion of their personal privacy and their refusal was justified. It is, therefore, held that these claimants who were discharged by the employer were not discharged for misconduct within the meaning and intent of the Unemployment Insurance Code".

Before trial, Defs. made motion to suppress as evidence tape and wire recordings and recording machine originally seized by state law officers in home of Def., under circumstances two state cts. had found rendered search and seizure unlawful. DC denied motion, under "silver platter" doctrine; articles admitted at trial; Defs. convicted; CA 9 affirmed. June 27, 1960: U.S.S.C.

Cahan, 44 Cal. 2d 434. Stewart, J., for majority: ". . . we hold that evidence obtained by state officers during a search which, if conducted by fedl. officers, would have violated the Def's. immunity from unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment is inadmissible over the Def's. timely objection in a fedl. criminal trial. In determining whether there has been an unreasonable search and seizure by state officers, a fedl. ct. must make an independent inquiry, whether or not there has been such an inquiry by a state ct. and irrespective of how any such inquiry may have turned out. The test is one of fedl. law, neither enlarged by what one state ct. may have countenanced, nor diminished by what another may have colorably suppressed".

Dissenting: "If the question of Communist Party membership had never been asked and Pet. had never invoked the Fifth Amendment, can it be that he would still be ineligible for suspension?... I had assumed that invocation of the privilege is a neutral act, as consistent with innocence as with guilt... We therefore today make a marked departure from precedent when we attach a penalty for reliance on the Fifth Amendment". Brennan, J.

Ct. judges, attys., Ariz. citizens, Comm. held "such hearing did not develop any facts adverse to the applicant", but recommended against admission on basis of "sealed confidential character report by the National Conference of Bar Examiners". Ariz. Sup. Ct. ordered App. admitted: "It is not the function of the committee to grant or deny admissions to the bar. That power rests solely in the Sup. Ct. The comm's. bounden duty is to 'put up the red flag' as to those applicants about whom it has some substantial doubt... In the final analysis — it being a judicial function — we have the duty of resolving those questions... on the basis of the competent evidence before us...

Act—prohibiting waterfront unions from collecting dues if any of their officers are ex-felons — is not in conflict with Natl. Labor Relations Act or Labor-Management Reporting Act of 1959 nor subject to pre-emption doctrine, since Congress expressed approval of provision; 2) Sec. 8 is reasonable means for achieving a legitimate state aim and does not violate Fourteenth Amdt. due process clause; 3) Sec. 8 is not bill of attainder or ex post facto law. Brennan, J., concurs. Douglas, J. (Warren, C.J., Black, J.) dissenting: 1) it is inconsistent to affirm here without overruling Hill v. Florida, 325 U.S. 538; 2) N.Y. Act states it is not to be construed to limit organizational rights derived from other statutes, therefore 3) under supremacy clause (Art. VI), judgment should be reversed.

(7-2) reversed, by Warren, C.J.; held: 1) Congress authorized Civil Rights Commission to adopt Rules of Procedure denying witnesses right to be apprised of complaints against them, rights of confrontation and cross-examination of complainants; 2) Rules are similar to those used by Congressional investigating comms., administrative agencies, grand juries, and do not deny due process because Comm. not an adjudicative body, (thus distinguishing Greene v. McElroy, 360 U.S. 474, IV DOCKET 96, and Joint Anti-Fascist Ref. Comm., 341 U.S. 123.) Harlan (and Clark, JJ.) and Frankfurter, J., concurring. Douglas (and Black, JJ.) dissenting: "The Civil Rights Commission can hold all the hearings it desires; it can adduce testimony from as many people as it likes; it can search the records and archives for such information it needs to make an informed report to Congress . . . But when it summons a person, accused under affidavit of having violated the federal election law, to see if the charge is true, it either acts in lieu of a grand jury or of a committing magistrate. The sifting of criminal charges against people is for the grand jury or for judges or magistrates and for them alone under our Constitution. In my view no other accusatory body can be used that withholds the right of confrontation and cross-examination for those accused of federal crimes".

It is our view that the obligation of a school district . . . cannot be said to have been met by a process of applying placement standards, educational theories, or other criteria, which produce the result of leaving the previous racial situation existing, just as before".
