WASHINGTON (UP1) - The Supreme Court today shifted its dramatic ''reverse discrimination" case from' healed courtroom'arguments to the isolation of a walnut- paneled conference room and the quiet chambers of the nine justices. Months may elapse before the court answers the crucial question: Can stale professional schools consider the race of applicants in an effort lo compensate minorities for past wrongs? ' And the more specific question: Was the California Supreme Court right in ordering Allan Bakke. a 37-year- old while man, admitted to the University of California's Medical School at Davis? Bakke sued on the ground only his race kept him out. since, the university reserved for disadvantaged minorities l(i of the 100 slots for beginning students. The justices' will discuss the case in a private conference Friday with no one else present. Some observers have compared the lawsuit to the landmark 1954 school desegregation case Brown vs. the Board of Education. That one was discussed at many conferences before an opinion took shape. Each justice, writes an opinion and these drafts are circulated to each of the nine. In nearly two hours of arguments Wednesday, lawyers for both Bakke and the university claimed the facts in the case were crucial. Both relied on the same facts to win. Questioning from the bench tends toward sharpness and Wednesday was no exception for Professor Archibald Cox of Harvard, who represented the university; Reynold Colvin of San Francisco,. attorney for Bakke: and U.S. Solicitor General Wade McCrce. who spoke for the Carter administration. Chief Justice Warren Burger asked if there was any evidence that medical school had excluded minorities in past years. Answering the,chief justice, McCree said' there was no evidence of improper exclusions but the court must be aware of much discrimination in California, for instance in (he public schools of Los Angeles, Pasadena and San Francisco iMcCree joined Cox in asking that Ihe California court be reversed. Cox rejected the term "quota" or even "target" to Miami Crash Injures Driver describe the University of California's plan. He said "there is no racially blind method" that will bring in more than a trickle of students from minorities, who for generations have been "shut out of the most, satisfying aspects of American life." . Colvin told the court Bakke has not posed as a symbol or representative of any group, but sued only to get himself admitted to medical school. .;•' "His position is that his right is not to be discriminated •against by reason of his race," the lawyer said.
