Suit Skips Pasadena Narcotics STUDY DOPE Seek Death Suspects r Face Court INDEPENDENT'(AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM . LMf UK*. C»W., «M4, fen. PATROL '·..'·:· United Press International ' ',' The U.S.. Justice Department Tuesday filed its first school desegregation suit on the West Coast, charging racial dis- · crimination by Pasadena school officials. Ally. Gen. Ramsey Clark.said the department filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to intervene in a pending suit by three parents against the Pasadena City Board of Education, its members and School. Supt. Ralph W. · Hornbeck. The petition said the Pasadena school officials had adjusted student assignment zones on a racial basis and adopted policies designed to maintaine Negro enrollment in predominantly white' schools at a level no higher than the percentage of Negro students in the entire system. The complaint, said the officials have failed and refused to take similar steps at schools wilh larger Negro enrollment.- It said . the school officials have refused to assign white students to.' schools they should ^otherwise: attend ,'because 'the schools have a larger percentage of Negroes than the entire syste'm. . The Department also asserted that the .defendants assigned most Negro teachers-to schools with predominantly Negro enrollments. Clark said the defendants had violated the school desegra- lion provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights ;Act, as well as regulations.issued by the Department of Health, Education · and Welfare. , - . r »'. t .* ·· a Younger Asks Gauer to Otiit · - - . . - ' O · : . · · " - - . "· *v · ' in Pornography Controversy By BILL MAYER From Our L.A. Bureau Dist. Ally. Evelle J. Younger, obviously disturbed about charges his office has been lax in prosecuting pornography cas : es, Tuesday urged county supervisors to "accept the resignation" of County Commissioner Raymond Gauer. * Gauer, chairman of the County Commission on Obsecenity and Pornography, last week accused Younger of being "soft" on pornography. "I .do not usually undertake to answer criticsm, w h i c h s t e m s from a source which is patently uninformed, as is the situation in this case," Younger said in a written statement. "However, I am undertaking by this report to your board to answer the statements made by Mr. : -Gauer because .the board, by its!appointment of Mr. Gauer . ... has given him some official status." · _ ,. Younger did not appear in person before the supervisors. His reply to the charges was contained in a nine-page, single-spaced typewritten s t a t e m e n t , which the board received and filed. Gauer appeared before the supervisors a week ago to make his charges against Younger. The district attorney's response indicated prejudice against him may have motivated the attack. Younger noted, Gauer is national executive . secretary for Citizens for Decent Literature. The organization's legal adviser is James Clancy, a former employe of the district attorney's office. "His (Clancy's) services with this office," Younger wrote, "were terminated by me shortly after I assumed office in December 1964." He said Gauer's attack started about a year later. Younger's report states, "in spite of Mr. Gauer's demonstrated prejudice and antagonism, the district attorney's office has tried to work/with him." The attacks were made in press conferences, letters to the press and in statements before public bodies. Younger said the attacks were unwarranted. He noted ho has served on the attorney general's committee to study pornography problems wilh an eye to .new legislation in the field. Two bills were written by the committee, and 'subsequently became law. They were designed to keep obscene matter out of the hands of children!. Gauer opposed this legislation on the ground the law was already adequate. "It would appear lo me," Younger wrote, "that with his opposition Lo our legislative proposals, Mr. Gauer would apparently rather talk about the problem . . . than do anything about it."
