The committee agreed without dissent Monday to support Court orders HEW fo speed desegregation in 17 states to update enrollment ' WASHINGTON (AP) - Un der new court instructions, the Health, Education and Welfare Department must take steps today to speed desegregation in ,17 Southern and border states. ,. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, following a hearing Monday, denied the Nixon administration's request for postponement of .a lower court order requiring the . desegregation step-up. ' The lower court ruled Feb. 16 that loday is the deadline for HEW to notify 116 school districts that they face the loss of federal funds because they have not met desegregation guidelines. : HEW also was ordered to tell another 85 districts by today that they must explain statis- into compliance or under court jurisdiction, he said, and the other 25 were sent letters March 24 asking for .new plans. Lawton, Okla., and Anne Arundel County, Md., submitted acceptable plans, seven others have sent in proposals, one is in the process of preparing a plan, three have expressed desire to comply voluntarily and another appears to be in compliance, he said.

In another development, Martha Mitchell said she wants to testify before the Ervin committee to "tell the senators some things they never heard in their life." In a telephone call to The Associated Press, Mrs. Mitchell asserted that the.White.House told "a God-blessed lie" when it denied that Nixon met Saturday with her husband, former Atty. Gen. John N.

JThe NAACP Legal Defense Fund opposed any delay. ·'The appeals court did not rule on the merits of the lower court decision. . The appeals court pointed out that its order did not mean that federal funds will be cut off immediately-only that HEW must notify the schools that their desegregation efforts are being questioned. "Hearings must be held by HEW before it can cut off funds to a school district. ·In his ruling, U.S. Dist. Court Judge John Pratt said 74 districts reneged on desegregation plans, and 42 were determined by HEW in 1971 as presumably violating the Supreme Court's Swann (busing) decision. Peter E. Holmes of HEW's Office for Civil Rights submitted a deposition bringing the appellate court up to date on the affected districts. Seventeen either have come ago. 58 Legislators oppose support of N.
