BAUMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Eisenhower administration lays before the Supreme Court today more, details of its plan for ending segregation of whites and Negroes in public schools "as soon as feasible."

In calling for the arguments after its May 17, decision that segregation is unconstitutional, the court said the formulation o 1 decrees in five cases before it "presents problems of considerable perplexity " If the questions asked by the justices are any Indication, they still are puzzled as to just what they should put in their decrees. One question: Do the decrees, when issued, apply only to the five cases directly before the court, or do they apply everywhere? Seventeen other states have some school sgregation. Another:" Should the court fix a definite date for ending segregation, or leave that to the discretion of local courts? Sobeloff, who started his argument before the court recessed 3380 yesterday, said the first thing the 3405 court should do is to :nake it clear 3410 that any slats constitutional provi- I sion or law that conflicts with the May 17 decision is void. And he said the court should guard against "paralyzing inaction and frustration." Should Be Sent Back Sobeloff, like all the other attorneys involved, said the cases should be sent back to lower federal courts for further proceedings and orders to carry out the court's decision. But Sobeloff disagreed sharply with Southern state spokesmen as to what directions should be given the lower courts. The Southern states want no directions at All, leaving district judges free to act within their discretion. Sobeloff said the high 'court's. decrees should contain specific provisions to make certain that segregation ends "as soon as feasible," and that steps be taken promptly for working out integration p'ans. Sobeloff also found himself in :isagreement with attorneys for Negro parents involved in the litigation. They want a deadl'ine of September 1955 for ending segregation, with September 1956 an outside target, date. Sobeloff said he did not feel the court should fix definite deadline. Instead of fixed deadline, he said, lowe courts should be given definit standards for their guidance, with in which they could take into ac count varying local conditions, Before Sobeloff began his argu ment. North Carolina, Arkansas Oklahoma. Maryland and Texa opposed any deadline or direction to lower courts. Their arguments in general followed those of Vii cinia, South Carolina and Florida made earlier. j A.sst. Atty. Gen. I, Beverly Lak j of North Carolina said any abrup j ending of segregation there migh result in closinc;; of public school and racial bitterness Atty. Gen. John Ben Sheppen of. Texas spoke of the po?sibilitie of ".social and economic upheaval' from integration before Texans prepared to accept it. Gentry Argues , Ally. Gen. Thomas Gentry Arkansas said the Supreme Cour "might well leave some of th problems of integration to Con gross." Atty. . Gen. Mac Williamson Oklahoma said there' is no need fr "driving or lashing someone lo a deadline." In his state, Wil liamson said, honest and earnes efforts are being made to work. out the problem.
