( Free Sneech That Incites Receives OK Supreme Court Ruling Kills Fine Imposed On Charge Of Bad Conduct WASHINGTON, May 17. P) The Supreme Court split 5 to 4 Monday in declaring the right of free speech exists even when the utterances stir people to anger and unrest. The majority opinion prompted a dissent by Justice Jackson that "if this -ourt does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact." The case involved a $100 fine imposed on Arthur Terminiello for a speech he delivered in the Chicago Auditorium Feb. 7, 1946. Terminiello appealed from an Illinois Supreme Court decision upholding his conviction on a dis orderly conduct charge. The Illi nois Court said he made "wild, intemperate and inflammatory utterances" which "tended to in cite to violence against the angry 1 mob outside." Justice Douglas delivered Mon day's majority decision. Chief (.Justice Vinson wrote a dissent ing opinion. Justice Frankfurter also wrote a dissenting opinion in which Justices Jackson and Burton concurred. Jackson also vrote a separate dissenting opin ion in which Justice Burton join ed. The record in the case showed Terminiello had been invited to address the Chicago meeting by Gerald L. K. Smith. His speech the high tribunal was told, preach ed hatred of the New Deal and of Jews, contempt for England and charged Mrs. Franklin D. Roose velt "with being a Communist." Jackson said Terminiello had been advertised in advance of his speech as a Roman Catholic priest of Birmingham, Ala., but the jurist noted that the trial brought out he was under sus pension by his bishop. Other Court Decisions Besides striking down the Terminiello fine, the court in other actions today: 1.

Jackson, however, declared that Terminiello's victory today "cer tainly fulfills the most extrava gent hopes of both right and left totalitarian groups, who want nothing so much as to paralyze and discredit the only Demo cratic authority that can curb them in their battle for the streets." Jackson continued: "We must bear In mind that no serious outbreak of mob vio lence, race rioting, lynching or public disorder is likely to get going without help of some speech making to some mass of peo ple. . . .

He now must show cause why he should not be extradited. Eisler's counsel offered "sub stantial sureties" In his bail plea, but Magistrate J. W. Eastwood said Eisler "has been convicted of a crime that is, perjury by a properly appointed court of the United States, and his appeal against that has been dismissed." Eisler's counsel, Dudley Col lard, told the court he hopes to prove that the defendant was charged with an offense of a "political character." "He is not nor has he ever been a member of the Commu nist Party of America," said the attorney. "He is and has always been a German national."
