MOB TITO BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS r University of Arkansas Agrees To Admit Negroes Qualified to Unroll for Post-Graduate Work By M»rt gtera SUff •i- • Unite* :IJnu ROCK. Ark., Jan. Jl. (UP)-Clifford IHvls, th» Little Rock Ratro whom University ef Arkansas officials said could become th« flrst of his nee to be admitted. Is currently studying law at Howard Univtr- aity to Washington, D. C. » — Kis relatives at Little Rock said did not believe he had been notified that special facilities had bete set up at Fayettevllle for him Tb* announcement was made yesterday in * formal statement by University of Arkansas Pres. Lewis Wefceter Jones. Dr. Jones said Da- Tis had applied for admission some torn* aco but had not been heard ttom recently. Dr. Jones explained that the university will now admit any "qualified Negro applying for graduate wort," and added that Davis would be offered identical instruction as white students, but would be taught in asparaU classrooms. OUwr university officials added that they would not be responsible for arranging for any Negro student's housing in predominehtly- WhlU PaytttevUle. Meanwhile, the official statement cf Dr. Jones has touched all additional controversy. Pine Bluff Negro Attorney Harold W. Flowers, president of tha Ariunsas Conference of Branches of th* National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he does not believe the "special facilities" proposal meets the specification of the U. 8. Supreme Court th»t Negroes must be afforded equal educational opportunities. Ala ft Repeal ef Old Uw WhUs Flowers said the N. A. A. C. P, has not been asked to inter- yens in this case, he said "we do not Intend to stop the fight, re- 'lesa of the outcome of the i In Texas and Oklahoma." lit said the Negro organ!*atlpn would, keep worrying the school* until segregation laws are repealed, and added that he believes the University of Arkansas will eventually be -"shamed" into letting Negroes attend classes with other students. At Pine Bluff, Wiley A. Branton, the Negro whose application for admission as an undergraduate student thla week started the current fireworks, said he had been officially denisd entry into the College of Business Administration in a let- tar from Registrar Fred L. Kerr. Brantoo said he was Informed tha^ he had sufficient opportunity to get adequate business training at Tflne Bluff A. M. and N. College for. jfegroes. He declared thaf this give, him legal grounds for suing the university, since neither he nor A. M. and N. Pres. Lawrence Davis feels the :Nearo school has an adequate business administration course at the present «me.' .XpmtoB said It was possible he wouM not- fovce the issue on his own application, but another Negro BUS* Hunt,of Texarkana, might be waiting to register for the law school when registration is held Monday. Hum wu denied admission to the law school in 1046. ' POT. Ben Laney yesterday came to the aid of the/besciged university officials saying that at present, and undsr the circumstances, he -concurs" with their decision to ac- cept qualified negro graduate students and reject undergraduate ne- gro applicants. The governor said he thought the situation would work Itself out, but refused to elaborate on this possibility. A United Press survey of random student opinion seemed to indicate that there was at least some sentiment In favor of allowing a qualified Negro student enroll. Seventy- live percent of those questioned were for admitting such a student, to varying degrees. Typical of the frankness with which university students answered the question is the reply of third- year law student Bill Penlx, whose father Js mayor of Jtaes- boro, Ark. Penlx wns for allowing enrollment. "test Spring, in one of the law classes." Penlx said, "we voted unofficially on this question-In the ^ ,. „ , . absence of the Instructor. The vote | ^!" A, ° **s overwhelmingly in favor of Negroes being admitted. I approve of that. If we can't meet Negroes at this level, we can't meet them at any level." Lawyers Seek To Validate 7,750 Divorces LITTLE ROOK, Ark., J«n. J!. (UP)— Lawyers of Little Rock today liked th« Arkansas Supreme Court to reconsider lt» J»n, 1] decision which In «ffect voided 1,759 divorce decrees. Two petition] were presented to the Supreme Court asking a rehearing of the decision which Invalidated the Second Division Pu- laskl Chancery Court created by the 1»«7 General As»embljr. The court ruled tint th e lower court did not exist since I he legislature did not have the authority to appoint the llrst chancellor, Mrs. Buth Hale. The court'i opinion de- clind thit since on* portion of th« act was unconstitutional, all of the act was void. A least 1,750 divorce decrees were Invalidated by the Court'a action. A «-pag« brief filed by little Charles Jacobson other Little Rocle Rock Attorney and signed by lawyers argued that sven though the law creating the court might lie unconstitutional, Mrs. Hale was appointed and commissioned "under color of law," and thit her decrees were valid. Jacobson's brief wa< filed on behalf of Arthur O. Stevenson, one I The other petition tor rehearing was filed earlier by Mrs. Ruth Wnsscll on behalf of Mrs. Buth Howell. Her petition argued that the entire act, Including Mrs. Hale's i appointment, was valid.

Skipping at random, It was Interesting to note that the two-party system did not exist in Arkanaaa during the territorial days. Insead, It came Into being with th e first gubernatorial election in 1836, when James S. Conway WHS elected governor over Absalon Fowler and Alexander S. Walker. It was Conway who called the legislature Into special session to trim taxes because of what he culled a "full to overflowing" treasury. He estimated in 1836 that the SPECIAL!
