HG must care enough to shed bias, to deny self and to live with respect and honor for the dignity of his neighbor," he said. Secondly, he said, "Aresolute national leadership must sharply define our goals and clearly assign their order of values. It must just as rigorously assess the means available. We cannot do, all things for all men and all communities and all nations at all times." While long term renewal is under way, Rockefeller said, cities and states must raise their annual revenues by $10 billion to m^et the cost of essential services recognizing "that . . ,-.-• PRtSON FARM, Ark.

Now it is under order by the federal District and Circuit Courts in Philadelphia to admit Negroes. The appeal promises to be a constitutional showdown on two major issues: Whether wills such as Girard's are ironclad and whether schools in the gray area between the public and private spheres are subject to the equal protection guarantees of the Constitution.

The appeal countered that Girard College is supported entirely by income from the trust, that it has never received funds from any government unit and that none of the 13 trustees "has any governmental status." The appeal added: "If education has become such a 'public function' that it must be conducted by private persons within the limits of the 14th Amendment the ramifications are such that only this Court should say city.
