LONG BEACH BRANCH: 4512 Atlantic Avenue, Bixby KnoIls-OA. 8-1281 Mill Olfict: 426 South Spring Strext, U» Anjelw-MA 4 B624 Supreme Court Allows Housing Ruling to Stand WASHINGTON W) -- The Supremo Court let stand Monday a decision killing* a state anti-discrimination law that applied only to owners of itibllcly financed housing. The decision, which applied specifically to Washington state, has a bearing on several other states with similar law*. However, the Supreme Court's one-line order gave no reason for the ruling. In an unusual session, the tribunal ordered rcarguments In 12 cases it already has heard. This large number stems from the retirement of Justice Charles E. Whittakcr. · · * * THE COURT will have its full tie-breaking total of nine again when Whittaker's sue cessor is confirmed by the Senate. President Kennedy has nominated Byron R. White. 44-year-old deputy at' tomey general, for the post. One of the re-arguments ordered is on the question of whether Congress has the power to strip citizenship from native Americans who leave the country to avoid military service in wartime. The other cases includes such questions as: (1) the tax deducibility of legal expenses In divorce proceedings, (2) laws affecting the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Virginia and Florida.
