Ga. Lf— "Taking local conditions into account" seems to be the key phrase on which both ■ides of the segregation issue are hanging their hopes. The U.S. supreme court luesaay ruled that public school segrega- Fra t end as soon as practi cable. But it opende a back door for opponents by turning the problem over to lower federal courts and by saying local conditions j should be taken into account. | Georgia leaders, who are counted among the nation's strongest ! opponents of integration in public j schools, stood pat on their vow j not to mix white and Negro stu- | classrooms. Taking local conditions into account, they said, could result in many years of uti- Opposile View An opposite view came from Mrs. Ruby Hurley, of Birming- a.. regional secretary of the National Assn. for the Ad- ■ancement of Colored People. "Ap parently the court expects compliance" in all the states which ive laws governing segregation public education." she said. "It so expects the lower courts to :e that compliance is carried out good faith." Sen. Albert Boutwell, chairman of Alabama's Interim Legislative Committee on Segregation in Pub lic Schools, said the Supreme Court order "appears to admit" that local conditions must be taken into consideration. Virginia officials who favor a cautious approach to the problem commented that "it was about all we could hope for." But two attorneys for the NAACP in Virginia said, "The court has afforded the South a reasonable period within which to make an effective transition to nonsegregated education, but has made it clear that the process of desegregation must start promptly and move forward with all deliberate speed." The spokesmen were Spottswood W. Robinson m and Oliver W. Hill. Governor Pleased Gov. Thomas B. Stanley of Vir ginia appeared pleased with the high court's pronouncement. He called for an early meeting of the state's segregation commission so it could give him "the benefit of its judgment in the light of the present condition." A federal judge in Tennessee said the decision puts no present esponsibility on that state because it has no segregation cases pend- g. Judge Leslie D. Darr contented at Chattanooga that "the Supreme Court would not and could not direct a local judge to t a decree that the local judge did not have an opportunity to determine in the first instance." Names Study Group Almost immediately after the directive was announced the Florida Legislature named a five-man Sen ate committee to study the decision. The committee reported a short time later that the decision creates no current need for either a special session or an extension of the current session. Shortly before Tuesday's an nouncement, Gov. Leroy Collins of Florida signed a bill giving local school authorities power to assign students to schools. Collins commented that current state law3 are "adequate and will permit full advantage of the authority to •elate enforcement to sound local > A.

Further study may show that this Gov. James E. Folsom of Al bania, referring to current pro ds in the Alabama General As-bly. spoke out sharply against free private" school system, im not in favor of turning nnr public school system over to pri- ate hands," he declared. S>uege<>t Meetings The Alabama Council of Human Relations, described as a nonprofit group interested in equal oppor tunities for all. suggested mat a s -section of white and Negro community leaders meet together locally and begin to work out a solution to the problems facing them." A spokesman for the group it has taken no stand on seg-r. Marvin Griffin of Georgia declared that "no matter how much the Supreme Court seeks to sugarcoat its bitter pill of tyranny people of Georgia and the South will not swallow it." He added: Under no circumstances will sacrifice the welfare and best interests of our children to satisfy such an unconstitutional decision : the Supreme Court. . ." Arkansas's position appears to coincide pretty close to the letter of the high court's ruling. Integration on a small scale already has begun there. "Give Us Room" State Sen. W. M. Rainach of Louisana commented that the ruling "gives us room to continue • fight." Louisana has adopted constitutional amendment au thorizing use of the state's police r to enforce segregation. It also has ready a 33',i-milIion-dol- lar program to equalize schools. In Mississippi, State Democratic Chairman Tom Tubb called the ruling "a very definite victory for the South." Kentucky is moving toward inte gration in the scnools but an NAACP official expressed fear that the ruling would go unheeded le Deep South. "After all," said J. A. Crumlin, president of NAACP in Kentucky, "federal Plan Protest Against Sales Tax Increase SPRINGFIELD, 111. m — A' "Springfield tea party" in protest against tax increase proposals pending in the Illinois Legislature is planned for Thursday in front of the State Capitol.

Suggest Jobless Pay The Detroit Times said it was informed by one source that Ford had indicated it might grant jobless payments to laid-off workers supplementing state unemployment compensation. Ford and the UAW kept mum officially on what was going on inside the negotiations under a 24-hour "moratorium" against any statements.
