Evidence Asked if he felt his representa lives had presented enough evi dence to the FBI to support his action in calling out the Guard ie replied, "sufficient to persuade any prudent and reasonabl nan." The governor said he met with Justice Department representa Ives before the fall school term opened, discussed the situation vith them, but did not tell them ' e planned to call out the Guard This morning as classes opened at 2,000-pupit Central High, the number of National Guardsmen appeared sharply reduced.

At Central High, the crowd or demonstrators today surged to ward a Negro newsman, who identified himself as O.J. Newson, Memphis, Tenn., correspondent ol the Afro-American newspaper Ir Baltimore. Guardsmen escortec him out of the area. Tension is building rapidly in the dramatic, fast-moving story. It centers at three points — 1. The federal courts where U.S. attorneys are preparing to ask an injunction, naming Faubus as one of the, defendants, and restraining any further interference with the order to integrate. 2. North Little Rock High School —scene of the first outright racial violence yeslerday — where all available police were ordered to take up guard stations today 3. Central High School in Little Rock, still surrounded by National Guardsmen under orders from Faubus to turn away .any Negro students attempting to enter. Two Questions There are two key questions still > be answered— Will the governor permit federal federal authorities to pass through the guards at the mansion and- 3ersonally serve him with notice Ihe restraining order? If he refuses, what action will he federal government take against him?
