PAGE EIGHT BLYTHETILLI! (ARK.)' COUKIER NTIWS TUESDAY, NOTT5MBKK 8, Anti-Segregation Forces Win Another Important Court Fight By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — One more battle in America's most sensational social revolution — the effort to wipe out racial segregation — has been fought and won. The Supreme Court yesterday ordered an end to segregation in public parks and public playgrounds in Maryland and on public golf courses in Georgia. \Vhile this action was less spectacular than the court's ruling in May 1954 — when it said segregation in public schools must end- it was far-reaching nevertheless. The court now apparently has said — although it didn't use this exact language — that .segregation in the United States must end in any .place or facility that is paidi for by the public, that is, paid for with tax money. ' I The court ruling did not say Negroes cannot be excluded from a recreational area or any other facility — like a bench, or playground, or golf course — that is privately owned and operated by) an individual or limited group of individuals. Applies to All It seems certain that in the end yesterday's decision in the Maryland and Georgia cases will have to apply to all states and cities. The classic example of this kind of thing was in the high court's ban on segretation in public schools. In that case the court ruled directly against omy a handful of states but tt soon became clear the decision applied to all states, although not all states have yet complied. The court -as consistently been following this principle in cases involving facilities that are supported by public tax money: Thai ".separate but equal" arrangements for Negroes are no longer enoug and are unconstitutional. Flffht Coins Forward The fight against other forms of segregation is going forward. Some years ago the Supreme Court banned segregation on interstate buses — those crossing state lines Now Negroes are fighting against segregation on buses which operate entirely within a city or state. A test case was made against segregation on buses operated by a utility company in Co lumbm, S. C. The U. S. Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., with jurisdiction over South Carolina, ordered sei relation banned on the Columbia buses. In doing so the appellate court was following the lead~of the Candidate Looks Like an 'Ideal' SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (jPi — Roderick Payne, a write-in candidate for mayor of nearby New Carlisle, pulls no punches in his campaign literature. Here's a sample: "Married 42 years to the same lovely wife. A few enemies and run of-the-mill vices. No lodge affiliations because I forgot to pay my dues. Like to play cards and bingo. Have two good ears for spicy stories and gossip. Like to argue. Allergic to taxes, hypocrites and politicians." GREETINGS. INDIAN STYLE-Indian Premier Jawaharlal Nehru, right, exchanges an Indian greeting with a sari-clad woman at Cairo's International Airport. The exchange took place At the end of Nehru's recent visit to Egypt. Supreme Court in the school case. It said that even though accommodations for Negroes on the buses — where they had to ride separate from the whites — were equal to those of the whites, they were not enough. That case is now being appealed to the Supreme Court which, if it, upholds the Appellate Court in the Columbia case, will in effect be wiping out segregation on buses in all states and cities. Meanwhile the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People — which has been the spearhead of the fight against segregation in all its forms — is attacking on still another front. It lias asked the Interstate Commerce Commission to forbid seg-j regation of interstate travelers not only aboard trains but also in sta- j tion waiting rooms and depot restaurants. The NAACP was asked yesterday ii now it intends to light against segregation in privately- owned movie theaters and festau- ants. A spokesman for the NAACP was rather vague on this. He indicated that may be done lat- er but emphasized that right now the NAACP is concentrating mainly on getting an end to public j school segregation in those states which are fighting or stalling; on! the Supreem Court decision. !
