Derrick Bell, a legal expert of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, predicts the Supreme Court will in effect rule against all school segregation. He predicts the court will con* elude that Negro youngsters cannot get an equal educational opportunity In schools that are all or mostly Negro.

The government still hasn't brought about complete compliance with the court's decision of 14 year sago. Hopes Fade for Copper Settlement By NEIL GILBRIDE AP Labor Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Chances of a breakthrough soon in the Btnonth-old copper strike have faded after union negotiators delayed action on a $1.07 per hour contract offer and renewed demands for company- wide btrrainlng. The 40 • montn contract offer by Phelps Dodge Corp.. one of four major strikebound copper firms, would have covered some 5,000 workers at Its Arizona mines and El Paso, Teiu, refinery, but not at Us other opera- lions in New York and Arkansas. The offer, which Phelps Dodge termed; the : b«st ever niiiJe,^ In thV^copper Industry, was "neither accepted nor rejected at this time" by several hundred leaders of the AFLXJIO United Steel workers union. Copper workers were averaging $3.28 an hour when the strike started.

But a Phelps Dodge spokesman said "there Is nothing else to bargain about" until the unions accept or reject its wage offer. He said the company would continue negotiations for the other plants not covered by the contract offer. Kennecott Copper Corp. was reported near a similar contract offer to the unions, but a Kenne- cott spokesman said, "The Issue of company- wide bargaining Is still our No, 1 problem." The 26 striking unions, representing more than 50,000 workers, are bargaining jointly for the first time In the Industry's history and their demands for company-wide bargaining, similar wage hikes and simultaneous contract dates has dragged out the longest copper strike In history, The other two firms, Anaconda Co, and American Smelting ti Refining Co n were reported still far from settlement, All four copper firms have rejected union demands tor company-wide bargaining and si* multaneous contract expiration dates, insisting on holding to the old pattern of negotiating separately lor their various mines, smelters, refineries and fatal* eating plants, YOUTH ASKED FOR ITI This column Is for young people, their problems and pleasures, their troubles and fun.

We're good buddies, and share each other's problems as we're the same age. A while ago I read that boys are more excitable than girls, but I never knew it applied to my cousin until he tried to be more than cousinly. At first I thought he was teasing, but he keeps on and now I think he has something else in mind. He has never tried anything bad, but he makes me nervous. In a sense, he Is even making me afraid of boys. Could you suggest something, Helen?-D.E.N. Dear Di ,Yes: >a fast stomp on the Instep and a quick elbow in the ribs. Sometimes boy cousins need gentle lessons In "relativity. "-H. Dear Helen: When I was In high school, I was a good little pure angel, but now that I am in college, well, frankly, I like my boys to be more "aware." I'm not happy with just a goodnight kiss, though I can keep making-out under control. Okay, so I enjoy parking out by the old rock quarry. This new guy Is terrlf and I'm crazy about him, but he brings me straight home. He actually blushed the first time he held my hand, and he hasn't got much farther since. We nave dated four times now, and all I get is a quick kiss at the door. Should I let him know I'm— READY AND WILLING? Dear R and W: Your letter makes me realize the boy wasn't kidding when he said "Dames are so aggressive nowadays that before I can tell them I'm not that kind of boy I AM that kind of boylll" Down, girl I You don't know how lucky you are,—H. Dear Helen; (Pardon me, I mean "Mom") You said no one has mentioned Leap Year, Let me be the first; Leap Year is here again, girls, so be on the lookout for that dashing young man you'd love to love. Legal chasing-times comes but once every four years: take advantage! Remember, the success of the bund depends on the determination of the huntress and the equal determination of the hunted not to get caught. That's why we call him "dashing." Here is a short refresher course in man-hunting: Beware of the boys who scorns too eager a victim. Usually this type is not worth the little energy expended getting him—you tire easily of that which comes easily. Once you've sighted In on your target, don't let your girlfriend know who he Is. Eight times out of ten she'll recognize your exceptional taste and go after him herself. True, comjMstition spices the hunt, but competing with a friend can cause hard feelings, also bruises. In this game, no woman, no matter who she is, can be trusted. Never lot your "victim" know he is being chased, Silly as It may seem, the theory of "male superiority" Is very real to the male. When he feels this superiority is being threatened by a female, you can't see him for dust. If, by a wink, wiggle and giggle, you entice him to walk you to class, lot him bellovc It was his courage that prompted him. Remember, the more you bulk! a boy's ego, the bettor are your chances of catching and keeping him. Make him feel.strong, Important and masculine. So, now, gals—ready, aim, advance.
