Malan's Hleli Court of Parliament as Illegal. The court's action posed new threats of Brave civil strife for the race-torn country. The five judges—their country's highest court until creation ot the parliamentary tribunal _ dismissed the government's appcn'l against the Supreme lower Court's ruling tliat Parliament acted unconstitutionally in setting Itself up as'the highest court to rule on constitutional questions. Parliament, In which Malan's Notionalist's have a small majority, took thnt action after IDc courts struck down a key law In the premier's ''While supremacy 1 ' program. The Appeal Court's action left Malan two possible courses of action: 1—He could defy the verdict and call on the High courl of Parliament to rule itself a legal body. 2—He could - accept the verdict and call an early general election In which he would seek a large enough majority to re-enact his disputed rnce laws within the framework of Hie Constitution.
