Tallahassee, Fla, — The State
Supreme Court returned a deci
sion today reversing the death
sentence imposed on Simon Peter
Taylor, convicted in the killing of
Deputy Sheriff Robert Max Sau-
lez. The Circuit Court was order
ed to enter a second degree mur
der conviction replacing that of
first degree.
The case waus defenued by both
the Tampa Branch of the NAACP
and the National Office, who se
cured the services of Attorneys
Scofield and Scofield, in Inver
ness. Fla., to represent Taylor.
Taylor was convicted following
an altercation with the Deputy
Sheriff in September of last year.
Tht Sheriff, in attempting to
St rve an illegal writ upon T.n.yloi'

ed by the defendant, began a bru
tal attacl' resulting in Tavlor’s
bi ing shot through the arm by
the deputy sheriff. In the follow
ing lassie the deputy sheriff wa.s
shot to death.
In setting aside the death aen-
ttnee the court stated: “the es
sential element of premoditatio;)
was abesnt. hence there could be
no finding of murder in the first
degree. We are satisfied that the
homicide was unlawful; that the
evidence was sufheient to justify
a conviction of munler in the

watched so anxiously by friends of

State War Council Committee on
Discrimination In employment,
headed by Dr. Alvin Johnson. Dr.
Johnson’s committee ended July 1,
when the Ives-Quinn Bill became
effective.
Called "The Negro Integrated,”
the report actually is much more
inclusive than its title implies.
While most of the cases handl^ by
the committee were on d' 'crimina-
tion against Negroes and Jews,
there were numerous cases involv
ing prejudice against Italians in
Rochester, Poles in Buffalo and oth
ers including Catholics and Irish.
Charles C. Berkley, executive dl-
lector of the committee, pointed up
the hopeful note that this report
passes on to the new commission
to the effect that all racial groups
i can work together harmoniously.
There was also a note of warning
that when more cutbacks become
effective and employment falls
off. the commission will have con
siderable work in seeing that racial
barrier are kept down.
