On the recommendation of the state's Joint Legal Committee to Maintain Segregation the East Baton Rouge School Board called on the Louisiana Bar Assn., to investigate action by attorneys Alex Pitcher and Johnny Jones. BL'ITHI'VILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS .SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1954 Hie,school board asked whether the two lawyers have violated a bar association canon which prohibits "fomenting litigation or strife." general The legislative group's counsel, William Shaw, said ethical canons prevent lawyers from promoting strife or drumming up business. Shaw said attorneys found in violation ,of the canon can be disbarred by the Louisiana Supreme Court upon the recommendations of the bar association's committee on ethics. Pitcher -and Jones represent the National Assn. for the Advancement .of Colored People. Pitcher took 39 Negro children to a white elementary school Sept. 2 and unsuccessfully attempted to register them. Statement Signed Sixteen parents subsequently signed statements they had not given permission for their children to try to register 'at the .white school. Mississippi's Legislature ended a Special session Friday at which a "private, schools" constitutional -amendment 'was passed. The measure, which will be submitted to the voters Dec. 21 ,would allow the legislature'to abolbli public schools. It is termed a vi> last re- "sprt" tool for maintaining segre- " gation.-Private schools would re' place public schools. At Dilioiv S. C., Gov. James F. Byrnes'noted recent racial , disturbances in Northern and border states and said "far more serious -situations will arise" in the deep 'South. Byrnes said recent difficulties in school integration in Ohio, West Virginia ""and Delaware "present :a powerful argument in favor of the Gov. nominee Orval Paubus said he hopes the convention will choose outstanding Negro leaders for the committee. Petitions seeking means to end segregation in Alabama's public schools will be filed from all 38 state branches of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People. Mrs. Ruby Hurley, Southeastern regional secretary for the NAACP, said that petitions are expected to be filed next week. * * * Byrnes Claims Border State Incidents Favor Segregation DILLON, S.C.

The State Democratic convention adopted "a" resolution directing the party's state committee to add six persons to its membership. Spokesmen at the .convention said the places are to be filled by Negroes. gation in Northern and border state schools "presents a powerful argument 'in favor of the continuance of segregated schools," Gov. James F. yesterday. Noting- last week's incidents in West Virginia, Delaware and Ohio, Byrnes said: "Thoughtful people should realize that if there is-such feeling in communities" in these states "where the percentage of Negro population is relatively small, far more serious situations will rise- in such counties as Clarendon in this state, when an effort is made to mix the races." Speaking at the opening of a new rug-weaving plant here, Byrnes declared that "writers in social problems, whose views were quoted ; with approval by the Supreme Court (in its anti-segregation opinion) know nothing 'of the seriousness of the problems involved in such a'district" as Clarendon, where Negroes outnumber whites 10 to 1. One of the cases on which the Supreme Court ruled originated in Clarendon County. It will be one of the districts represented before Byrnes congratulated "the people of South Carolina on their restraint since the decision of the Supreme Court. They have indicated their willingness to withhold their final judgment until the Supreme Court shall render its final decree." The governor also said he believes "the vast majority of the Negroes in South Carolina would prefer to send their children to the splendid schools now being constructed for them" under the state's 100 million dollar-plus school equalization program.. the court when it hears arguments, Dec. 6, on how its decision out- Continued from Page 1 tion of a Republican-led Congress."

Continued from Page 1 contents. Watkins said no committee member has retained a copy of the report. -No copy has been given to McCarthy or anyone else, and that he feels "very certain" no member would give even a hint in advance to anyone about the nature of the finding. But he told a news conference it offers a basis for a clear cut decision which the Senate "could vote up or down. This would be the final effect of the entire report." Another member, Sen. Case (B- SD), said he expects the report "will be regarded as one in which we have faced our responsibilities." Some things have been disclosed about the report—that half its estimated 60,000 words will detail the findings on 13 specific charges against McCarthy, grouped into five categories, on Which the group held nine days of public hearings. Four Sections Qualified informants said the findings embrace an opening statement, a separate section stating a conclusion as to each of the five categories of charges, another section dealing with the other 33 charges on which no public hear- ngs were held, and a summary or conclusion. The committee forbade disclosure as to whether the report makes specific recommendations. Its other 30,000 words, the informants said, constitute a nar- •ative summary of the evidence WARNIN G ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS Bill Dehart, Pltf. vs. No. 12,791 Billie Alice Dehart.

This notice first published Sept. 25, 1954. JAMES M.. GARDNER, Administrator, Borum Building, Blytheville, Ark. Prank C. Douglas, Atty. 9/25-10/2-9 probably played the lead role in blocking a move to call the session next Wednesday, but he insisted the deferment would have no political repercussions. "I don't think the Republicans will lose a thing nor do I think the Democrats will gain or lose," he said at his home in Concord, N.H. Rather, he said, it was a decision "very' wise, very fair." Democratic senators, however, clearly felt the deferment will work to their party's election day advantage. The J , driver training course which was to begin Thursday night at the high school here was postponed because of the prison riot at Jefferson City, Mo. Members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol who were scheduled to conduct the course were called to assist in ending the riot.

Mrs. Bill Pack, of Caruthersville, has entered Walls Hospital in Blytheville for an operation.
