'Gerhart Eisler's Conviction
Stands If He Returns To U. S
Effect Of High Court's Ruling
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.-0) The Supreme court Monday tossed
out an 'appeal by Gerhart Eisler, the Communist leader who jumped
ball and fled the country while the justices were considering his
case. . ' v
Eisler appealed to the Supreme court from a contempt of Con
gress conviction. He sat in the court chamber while lawyers debated
his case earlier this year. But he stowed away on a Polish ship
last May and fled to England, and then to Germany, before a
decision was reached. , '
The court puzzled for a month
over what to do in such a unique
circumstance. Finally the jus
tices voted 5 to 4 to put the case
in a sort of suspended status. It
was taken off the docket, but
technically remained before the
