Judge Rules Favorable for School Board LITTLE ROCK (AP Z -"I do not believe . . . Hint it-is necessary for any further action to be taken by the court at this time," U.S. District Judge Gordon E. Young said Tuesday in referring to the Little Rock integration dispute. His remark was in a letter to Ncgrt attorney Wiley A. Branto , who had written Young to say that if the Little Rock School Board's plan to integrate junior high schols next fall had been disclosed in time, a number of Negroes would have made application to attend the white schols. The schol board said May 25 that it would begin junior high integration next fall; and assigned 25 Negro students to the white junior high schools. Another 234 were assigned to predominately- white senior high schols. Brmilon wanted the board to make assignments for Negro students all over again. Young said he did not feel his order of May 31 needed clarification. In that order, he directed the schol board to report to him by July 15 on the procedures it used in making initial assignments and in considering requests for reassignmcnts. "We take the position thai there has been a complete discriminatory practice with reference to initial assignments," Branton said last week in disclosing that he planned to challenge the board's assignment procedures, He said such a challenge would come cither in a reply to the board's July 15 report or in a motion filed before that time.
