PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Th« Notion Todoyi What Will tht South Do? Supreme Court Drives Peg into South's Power (Editor** Note: This h thr last «• •f four stories on Supreme Court decisions involving Negroes and their rlghls.) By JAMES MARIA)W WASHINGTON; June 10. (API- It may be some lime— mnybc years —before all the Southern states fall In line with the Supreme Cowl'.s decision this week on equal higher education for Negroes. What the court said—In effect- was this: when a state supports a school of higher education for whites, like the gradual* school of a state university, it must: . Equal Education 1. Admit Negroes, so ihcy'Jl get equal education or— 2. Provide ft school equally goud for Negroes. But In the end the court, not the state, will decide what's equal. When it handed down that decision this week, the court was speaking only to the state of Texas, or, rather, to the law school of the University of Texas. Docs that mean the other Southern slates must immediately start admitting Negroes Lo their state- supported schools of higher education or Immediately start building equally good ones for Negroes? Not necesarily. Louisiana, for Instance, could refuse to let a Negro into its state medical school and still not be in contempt of the Supreme Oourt. Why? Because the court addressed its opinion to Texas, not to Louisiana. But if Texas, refused now, it would be in contempt. Louisiana Refuses Suppose now Louisiana refuses to do what the Supreme Court said Texas must do. Then almost surely in Louisiana or any other Southern state which refused, a Negro could start a court, fight, backed by the national association for the advancement of colored people. When that case reached the Supreme Court, It's reasonable to hc- lleve the decision about equal treatment for Negroes would be the same, or similar to, the decision the court gave in the Texas case. Why? Because 'the court in its ruling definitely said how it feels on the subject of equal education for Negroes. It repeatedly has said this. And there's another reason why the South can't expect the present court to take a view very different in the future on a similar case. Texas Opinion It's this: the opinion In the Texas case was unanimous. All nine Justices agreed. • If a batch of the present nine justices died in the next few yeans or resigned and were succeeded by Justices with different views, then some future decision might be different. But these present Justices seem healthy enough to live a good while and none of the nine has shown any Indication of resigning his lifetime .Job on the court which pays $25,000 a year. So, it would seem, the most the other slates could do Is to delay f oliowin s th e decision la id dow n for Texas. Some years might be used up in doing that, because of . the court fighU. Such delays in other fields have happened many times. But you can be sure Negroes will fight this through everywhere, even though It takes years, Just as they have been fighting for years in other fields to win through Supreme Court decisions. The court, through this week's leclsion, has driven deeper its wedge into the power of a Southern state to deny Negroes higher education or to segregate them while giving them equal education. Remember: the decision this week was on higher education only. _ The court said nothing about high] schools or grammar schools.

Wage-Earners Reminded Of Need for Names on Social Security Reports Lcrn E. Bradford, manager ot the Federal Security Agency office in Jouesboro, today reminded wage- earners that an employe who lets bis employer report his social security wages by name alone is asking for trouble in getting his proper amount of benefits when a claim is filed, and in Belling full credit for the wages earned. More than 00 million people have social security accounts in the central bookkeeping division of the Social Security Administration. It is not enough for an employer to show only the name of his employees on the social security lax returns, he said, because by name alone the Social Security Administration cannot identify the proper account to winch those wages should be credited. Tile social security account number and iinino of the employee should be on each social security tax return for the lux return to be corrected Bradford said. complete, Mr. People Said Sitting Home with Soft Drinks HOLLYWOOD.
