fAGH EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 19M Negro to Renew Fight to Enter U. of Alabama NEW YORK (AP) — Autherine Lucy says she will return South "within the next week" and renew her fight to enter the all-white University o£ Alabama. "I cannot see any reason I abandon my sole purpose of ob tnining an education within th meaning of the decisions oi th Supreme Court of the Unite States."

The club's suit for injunction stil is pending before the Chancer Court. The Supreme Court mererj dissolved Judge Rorex's restrain ing order; it didn't pass on the merits of the complaint. In its formal statement announcing compliance with Chancellor Smith's order, the Racing Commission took notice of Gentry's handling of the case, saying: "The commission had no alternative other than to grant a permit. The commission waited until one minute before midnight to see whether or not Atty. Gen. Gentry would comply with the request made by the commission to file the appeal and ask a 'stay order' in the Supreme Court. Since this was not done, the permit had to be grEnted and was granted." After Chancellor Smith held that the Racing Commission overstepped Its authority in rejecting Southland's original application for a franchise Gentry announced that he would take the case to the Supreme Court. Yesterday, in arguing that Judge RoreK's order be set aside, Gentry said he "most assuredly" would appeal the Smith decision. However, he ignored two official requests by the commission to hasten the appeal, and seek a Supreme Court order staying Judge Smith's directive. If Gentry follows through on his announced intention to appeal, he must do so before March 12. The fight over the franchise began last December when the Racing Commission turned down Southland's request for a permit. The commission acted shortly after Gov. Faubus had fired 10 commissioners, re-nppointed five of them, and selected five new ones. At the time, the commission also was embroiled in a controversy surrounding the Oaklawn Park franchise, and Faubus wished to make certain that his views would receive consideration. The commission rebuffed Southland on the ground that dog racing isn't in the "best interests of the stote." That's where it erred, ruled Judge Smith, who held onl the Legislature was authorized to determine wherein lie Arkansas' best interests. He ordered the commission to prove that Southland had failed to meet statutory moral and financial requirements for track, operators or grant the franchise 1 within 20 daj's. her from the university Feb. 6.

Railroad Freight Rate Hike Okayed WASHINGTON I*—The nation' railroads had permission today U boost by 6 per cent the rates the* charge for most freight they hau across state lines. In the fastest general rate in crease action on record, the Inter state Commerce Commission yes terday authorized the increase k become effective next Wednesday On many farm commodities and some minerals, the ICC ordered the rate increase held under 6 per cent. The same increases were author ized also for domestic water car riers. The railroads had sought a flat per cent rate rise, citing increased Itbor and materiai costs. Seeking quick action, they had offered to refund the increased charges if the ICC found later that they were not lustified. But the ICC closed the case late yesterday with a finding that general 6 per cent rate advance was warranted by operating expense increases "amounting to r.ore than 500 million dollars annually." The new rates thus are tot subject to refunding. Industry officials estimated the CC order would result in hiking reight billings by about 423 mil- Ions a year.
