WUHOV The first tout of North 1935 public school law is on its way tluough the courts It may wind up lr fed-ral court eventually Judge George Patton ruled vesterday in McDowell County Superior Court that it was not lawful lor a group of Old Fort Negroes to file a joint petition for admittance to the white Old Fort elementary school The jurist said he construed the intent of the 1955 law empowering local school boards to handle the integration issue to mean that per sons petitioning for admittance to schools should do so individually and not jointly Samuel Mitchell of Raleigh attorney for the Negroc gave notice of appeal to the State Supreme Court It the high court upholds ruling Mitchell said the case will go to federal court it would be dear the state statute does not offer us any means of The 4th Court or Appeals advised the Negroes in a suit similar to the one heard here to exhaust all avenues of redress on a state level before returning to federal court The North Carolina law gave local authorities the power to assign pupils to schools and the Old Fort case grew out of a denial by the Old Fort school board of a request to admit Negro students If Patton is reversed by the State Supreme Court the ease will be heard on its merits here An automobile stunk a utility pole and a street marker and overturned thiee times shortly before 1 30 a today injuring
