THtJBSDAT, JUNE 8, 19W •LTIWEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER 1KVEN Th« Nation Todayt N«9ro«i and H»« Court*— ' S upreme Court Ruling OnNegroeslsNotNew Belgian Head p orms Cabinet p rom Catholics Hj JAMES MARI.OVF WASHINGTON. June 8. iff) — You may have the Impression that ,5. Supreme Court hos sud- become very active about rUndiilf; dcwn decisions to bolster the civil rights o( Negroes. Actually, tha court has been do- Ing this for years. But some of Its bluest decisions have been made In the past 10 years, particularly in the past few. The court, has been following a principle laid down by the court in 1896: That when Negroes are segre- ga'ed, they musl be treated equally with whiles. That's at the heart o( all Ihe decisions. The 189S court said scgrcEalion as principle since then all right. The court hasn't attacked the principle as a principle. Nevertheless, Its decisions wipe out segregation bit 'by hit. Several Fields Covered The decisions since 1896 have covered several fields: Voting, education. property, and travel 'on trains agreed not to s*H to Negroc*. If one of them tried to break the covenant by Moling to a Nefrro, the others could go to court «nd get « judge to keep the Negro out. Covenant Not Upheld But In 1948 the court said private property owners can make all the deals among themselves they w«nt BuU-no longer can a Judge uphold such, a covenant. That wiped out the main supporl of covenants. Now anytime & slgne: of a covenant wanl.s to break it ant sell to a Negro, no court can b* used to V:co,n the Negro out, Travel. . . . In 19H the court said thai, whei state laws order Negroes and white lo be kept separate on trains, Ne groes must, be given equal accom modatious. Court Went Further III 1941 Ihe conn went a little further. It said a Negro who buys first-class accommodations on a train must get them—even' if It and buses. This will Rive a roundup of the main rulings in the past 51 years: Voting. . . . In the South Ihe Democratic primary election Is the important one, not the general election which follows It. Thill's because the South Is mostly Democratic. The Republi- <^JXs are weak. flftl the Democratic primary tin voters choose one of several Demo cratic candidates lo face the Republican in the/ general election. TVmncrat Is Omch Since the Democrat Is almost always a cinch to beat the Republican, thai make* the primary the real election. Starting after the Civil War Reconstruction cm. the South has tried to keep Negroes means putting him in the white scctton—if the Negro section has first-class accomr odations for him. In 1046 ti^e court said busses which cross stale lines no longer can make Negroes ride by themselves or behind white passengers. And this week, in 1950. the coyrl said railroad companies must stop forcing Negroes to eat at separate tables in dining cars, set aside with curtains or screens. Educalion, . . , Equal Treatment In 1(08, in 1948 and in two decisions this week the court said Negroes must get! treatinen BRUSSELS, Belgium, JIIIM I.

He told a news conference the cabinet would be sworn into office this afternoon. Duvleusart said he would go at once to the palace U) submit his choice* to the regent, Prince Charles.

But in 1927. again in 1032 and again in 1944 the court stepped Inj and told Texas—and therefore the i rest of the South—to stop barring Negroes from the Democratic primary.
