(AP)-Clemson College has announced plans for a last-ditch legal effort to prevent Harvey Gantt from being the first Negro to attend an all-white publ lie school in this state. But at the same time, college housing officials disclosed Thursday the room they have decided to assign the Charleston Negro if his admission becomes a reality. A spokesman said Gantt would be housed in dormitory in a single room. The dormitory is the smallest on the campus and has 20 rooms.

Dr. Robert C. Edwards, president of the state-supported institution, told a news conference of the college's plans for additional legal moves to prevent or delay Can's enrollment. He said the school will seek a postponement of the integration order from the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the same court which ordered Gantt's admission Wednesday.

If that fails. Edwards said, then the school mil take its case to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes that the admission of the N'egro can be delayed. Newport Dailg News KSTAIiMSHFD lIO Published a i except and a i holidays hy the LOrlu-ard A. Sherman Publishing Company, 140 Thames Newport.
