S. Supreme Court order to »dmlt Ada Sluuel Fisher, a 23. year-old Negro woman. The court, In an unanimous dk- cislon yesterday, ruled that Oklahoma must provide equal facilities lor both Negro and white students. University and state officials refused to concede that the supreme court had upset Oklahoma's segregation system. But they refused to comment for publication, pending a meeting of the University Board ot Regents tomorrow. The regents will meet with attorney General Mas Q. Qilliainson Thursday to discuss the decision. | One regent, who didn't want h!s name used, said the state still has * l»w against Negroes and whites attending the same schools. "The court did not, so far as I know, declare the law unconstitutional," he said. Rejected Two 'Years Ago Ada Fisher, who was turned down two years ago when she applied (or admission to the university, planned to enroll for the Spring semester beginning Feb. 19, her mother sntd Student opinion on the campus was about evenly divided on the Fisher case. But » poll conducted by the student newspaper showed opln ion predominantly against a com plete breakdown of racial restrict Ions. Quintan Peters, editor of the Ok lahomi Dully, said he believed unl verslty and state officials could no escape the supreme court decision Other Southern States Affected ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 13 (UP) — Most Southern states either operat separate professional schools for Ne groes or pay their tuitions In on of-state colleges, but none has tl "equal" facilities for Negro ai white students required by a recei U. S. Supreme Court ruling, a su vey showed today. Consequently, nearly every Soutl •m state will probably be affected by the court's ruling yesterday or-' dering the University of Oklahoma to admit a Negro girl to Its Inw school. A. committee of Southern governors plans to meet In Nashville on Sunday to dlscuss-the possibility of setting up regional professional schools for Negroes to avoid admitting them to state schools.

When McCord brought, up the Idea of regional colleges he said that If Negroes are admitted to white professional schools in the South "they might as well be abandoned since such action would effectively destroy their operation." The Tennessee governor's original proposal grew out of an earlier case In which the University of Missouri was ordered to admit a Negro law student. —Courier News Photos 111 the pictures above are shown trainees at work in Ulytlievillc's newest factory, a branch of the Duvo Chrome Corporation of St. Louis, a wood and metal commercial furniture and. fixtures firm.
