Even in the South, where a plurality of 43 per cent Oppose the desegregation Iflict, a substantial 42 per jGent support it. A Harris Survey of a cross Section of 1,602 households tcross the country also yielded these findings: — By 61 to 18 per cent, a heavy majority of the public believes that de jure school segregation — separate but equal schools under the law — is "wrong." People who live in the South now accept this judgment by a 48-to-28 per cent margin. The only group found to endorse the principle of legal segregation in education were those who voted for George Wallace in 1968, but even they did so by a relatively narrow 46-to-35 percent margin. — A total of 9 per cent of the families in the country reported that they had been personally affected by the court's desegregation order, mainly drawn from the South. Roughly one in five households in the South (19%) said they were affected. One in six black families (16%) reported the court order had had an impact on their children's schooling. — Of those affected by the desegregation move, 16 per cent said they had refused to comply with the order and had enrolled their children in private schools. This comes to 1.5 per cent of all families in the country. Significantly, for every two white families who reported sending their children to private schools, there was one black family who said they took then- children ,out of public schools. A number of black urban middle income parents have turned to private schools in the past few years. An additional one in seven parents whose districts were affected by the court order said they would have like to withdraw their children from the public schools, but did not. However, 70 per cent of the affected parents reported they had complied with order and kept their children in school. These results would indicate that initial apprehensions of a serious tensing of race relations as a consequence of the desegregation order simply were not well-founded. To the contrary, the net impact has been to convince most Americans that the issue of segregation in schools as a matter of law has been resolved, at least in principle. The cross section was asked: "The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that public schools which, are segregated must become integrated now without any further delay. In general, do you tend to approve or disapprove of this ruling for integration now by the U.S. Supreme Court? t.S.SUPREME COtffif DESEGREGATION OftflER ffce percentages are to tots order: Approve; Disapprove; Not Sate.

(AP) Dean Prosser Jr. lives about 10 miles south of here, about 700 feet into Colorado. And it appears that's going to be a problem. On Nov. 3, Prosser was elected to serve in the state House of Representatives—the Wyomirig House. Prosser is a Republican, and the Democrats here say his residence in Colorado makes him ineligible to hold a seat in the legislature. Prosser, however, says he has voted in Wyoming's elections for 40 years and considers himself a resident of Laramie County, the county including Cheyenne. Larry Schieck, the Democratic county chairman here, has asked the county district court to bar certification of Prosser's election. Judge John Raper has scheduled a show cause hearing on Schieck's request for a preliminary injunction for Wednesday.

Slacks support the desegregation move more than whites. Higher income people are easily most approving of the order, as are those who voted for Hubert Humphrey for President in 1968. However, voters who cast their ballots for George Wallace disapprove, by 58-32 per cent. Nixon voters split the difference in approving the court order by 52-34 per cent. The political implications of these results are significant. Governor-elect Wallace of Alabama has indicated that a "free choice of parents to choose their neighborhood schools" will likely be one of the main thrusts of another presidential bid in 1972. Wallace is likely to find this appeal now limited mainly t» the Deep South, although he might make some incafstofis in Border States as well. Hid might be enough to thwart any hopes of a so-called Republican "Southern strategy." But it would likely reduce Wallace to the statu* of a regional candidate should he make the run for the White House again. WELCOME HERE! CHARGE IT! CHARGE It!
