Dayton, Tenn.. July 4.—Three local
attorneys associated in the prosecution of
the Scopes evolution case, declared in a
statement issued early today that the
state of Tennesssee is sovereign and not
subject to control of the federal govern

the enforcement of its criminal laws.
This declaration came on the heels of
announced plans of defense counsel to
seek removal of the trial from the state
courts to the United States courts by
means of a federal injunction which
would procure an earlier decision on the
questioned constitutionality of the Ten
nessee statute forbidding the teaching of
the evolution in public schools.

The immediate cause of Fuqua's death
may never be known. He had a habit
of taking long hikes to Greensboro and
other places, often being picked up by
aome passing automobile, and possibly at
this time he was returning from Greens

a couple of miles from his niece’s home
gives rise to the belief that he was either
struck by an automobile or became sud
denly ill and could proceed no further
than a short distance from the road. A
local physician said that often Fuqua,
while ill, would crawl off into the woods
and remain there until able to be up
again. For many years he was in
wretched health and. apparently, was a
victim of tuberculosis.

Mrs. Inman says the women of Atlanta
are wearing the coins on cords about
