PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1951 Segregation Not Only Instance High Court Reversed Itself By JAMES MARI.OW Associated I'ress News Analyst WASHINGTON (^P) — The Supreme Court angered a lot of Southerners when it ordered an end to segregation in public schools. The decision overturned an opposite ruling on sepresation laid down by the court 59 years ago. A soecial Virginia commission, trying to find a way to get around the new ruling, expressed indignation that the "law of the land is whatever the court may determine it to be by the process of judicial legislation^ the The whooping crone if not hofd to idtn- ', »ify.

The court in 1896 said it was constitutional for a state to pass laws segregating Negroes from whites — as in railroad trains — if the facilities given Negroes were equal to those of the whites. "Separate But Equal Ruling" This was the famous "separate but equal" doctrine which no subsequent court — until 1954 — knocked down although justices in th- meantime chipped away at it. Then on May 17. 1954, the present court wiped out the doctrine by ruling that segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. Since times change — and justices are a product of their times and environment — it is not unusual, as history shows, that justices of a later day find a mean- BOSTON ,# _ Federal Judge ing in the Constitution contrary] George c s wee ne.v yesterday de- to that of their predecessors — • dy Committee In this managing editors cxamint obtain " Coleman A.
