TWO Th« Notion Today: Equality in Education— South Has Problem. In Figuring Equality (Editors Note; This Is Hie third of four slories on tills week's Supreme Court, il eels Ions Involving Kegrws and their rights.) By JAMKS MARLOW WASHINGTON, Juno. 9. Wt — What Is equal? Finding the answer to that may not be easy for the Southern states- Still, they'll have to find the answer in order to give Negroes higher education opportunities equal to those of whites in their slntcs. The U. S. Supreme Court this week marie it unmistakbaly clear that Negroes must get such equality. If the Southern states produce what they say is the answer, the Supreme Court is always in the position of hanng final say on whether it is or not, Negoes can always appeal to the court for decision. Negroes Turned Down A Texas* negro wanted to get Into the University of Texas Law Only time and a great mat) distinguished people can give un school traditions nnd prestige, A new school, naturally, doesn't have either when it's starting out, If the conrl is coing (o consider any Negro .school unequal to its white counterpart because it lacks the la tier's "traditions and pre.s tigc," then how cau a new Negro school ever tie considered equa to an old-established white school of high .standing? Question t»r South That's a question Tor the .South to consider before it -starts spending money on new schools for Negroes, since setting up separate .schools or No goes in higher education Js a cosily project., In recent years southerners have have ben moving toward the (den, of setting up Inrge regional schools for Negroes lo give them what white 'Southerners consider equal education. School which was for whites only.J Rul there5 n possibility the Su- He was turned down because he preme Court would not accept that idea, if a Negro tried lo test it the courts. " Negro, was He fought this in Finally Texas s et up a law school for Negroes. But this particular Negro said "no," he still wanted in at the U. of Texas Jaw school for whites. Why? Because, he said, the Negro school was inferior to the white one and therefore he was being deprived of an education equal to that which the white students were getting. Supreme Court Agrees The Supreme Court—which repeatedly has ruled in the field of education and other things that Negroes must get equal treatment with \vhiles-agreed with the Negro In this case. First, the Supreme Court said the Texas Negro law school lacked the same size faculty, big library, variety of courses and other advantages of the white school. Then the court added something which can't be measured In buildings and books and money. It sairi: "What is more important, the U. of Texas school possesses to a far greater degree those qualities whtch are Incapable of objective measurement but which make for greatness in a law school. Qualities Enter '-'Such qualities, to name but a few, Include reputation of the faculty, experience of the administration, position and influence of the alumni, standing in the community, traditions and prestige." So the court apparently has set up two tests for equality between white ^and Negro schools: The facilities, and the traditions and pres- , stale doesn't have to of its residents with by bringing .soil to the high court. This is why: In 1338 the University of Missouri law school refused to let Negro, he was a Negro, but offered "to pay his tuition In a school in some other state. The court ruled out that idea this way: a supply any legal education but, if it does for the whites, as Missouri was doing, it must do the same for its Negro citizens. Equal Privileges And the court added: if a state gives privelcgcs—bub separately to white and Negroes—those privileges must be equal. And. the court .said, telling a Negro to go to another state is denying him equal rights in his own state. For iU reasoning, the court invoked the 14th amendment which guarantees all citizens equal protection of the laws. The court said a state can give equal protection of its laws only when, or where, its laws apply, which is in its own stale alone.
