WASHINGTON (AP) - the Supreme Court upset today the "ffeedom of choice" attendance plans of three southern school systems, A unanimous decision said "tf there are reasonably available other ways, such for illustration as zoning, promising speedier and mofe effective conversion to a unitary, non-racial school system, 'freedom of choice' hltist be held unacceptable," the decision further charged letter federal courts with retaining jurisdiction in school segre* gallon cases "so that the goal of a desegregated, non«racially operated school system is rapidly and finally achieved," The ruling disapproved the plans of New Kent County, Va,, JflfllMnn. Tenn., and Gould. Ark., school districts. Justice William J. Bretman Jr. spoke for the court. Recalling that it has been .more than a decade since the Supreme Court declared racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional, Brennan said that in areas where there is segregation "the burden on a school board today is to come forward with a plan that promises realistically to work and promises realistically to work now." He added: "There is no universal answer to complex problems of desegregation; there is obviously no one plan that will do the job in every case. The matter must be assessed in the light of the circumstances present and the options available in each instance." Where federal district courts find school boards acting in good faith and determine that a proposed plan has real prospects for dismantling segregated school systems "at the earliest practicable date," then the plan may be said to be acceptable, Brennan continued. — Hope (Ark.)

The Frommers arrived by air last Tuesday and will be here until June 10. Nixon Feels Nomination Almost His By JACK BELL AP Political Writer PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, summing up five months of primary campaign* Ing, says only an unusual com* bination of circumstances can deny him the Republican presidential nomination. Barring some dramatic new development that cannot now be foreseen, Nixon said in an inter- View he is confident he can stand off the thrusts of New York Gov, Nelson A. Rockefeller and California Gov. Ronald Reagan and walk off with the prize on an early ballot at the Miami Beach, Fla., convention. One development which could cloud this optimistic picture, he concedes, would be an unexpected showing by Rockefeller and Reagan in Tuesday's Oregon primary balloting. Nixon has lowered his sights in this last of the major primar* ies for the Republican contenders, maintaining that 55 per cent of the GOP vote will be a satisfactory victory, He has been averaging around 70 per cent in other primaries, where the combined Rockefeller "Reagan threat has not been serious, If he wins in Oregon and adds South Dakota's 14 convention votes in a June 4 primary without further campaigning there, Nixon thinks he will have established a commanding lead in the nomination contest. Nixon thinks that it might be possible for Rockefeller and Reagan to put together a combination with the favorite sons that could stall his convention bandwagon. Nixon said if there ever was a chance that the Republican governors would swing their combined weight behind Rockefeller it has evaporated. The GOP governors will meet in Tulsa, Okla,, June 14-15 to draft proposed convention platform planks and discuss candidates. "I will have more governors supporting me than backing Rockefeller," he predicted.
