Sparkman said his charge of dis- sfrvicp. covered both these proposals, lit: said that if segregation were abolished ami the minimum standards .set, very few Negroes, il any, could ever be admitted. He charged that, il would "open the doors" to whiles only in Howard University and Meharry Medical College because, he said, no Negro would be able to coinj)ete successfully on entrance examinations. Sparkman quoted figures showing that if entrance to Mclrarry last year had been by competitive examination and 300 white applicants had been considered, the college would nave had to take 60 white applicants and only five of 729 Negro applicants. One of the first steps contemplated under the compact is Joint operation of Meharry by the Southern States.
