Judge Frank Ellis has taken the Tulane desegregation case under advisement. He hopes to reach a decision by October. Ellis heard an attorney for two Negro applicants Monday contend a legislative act has given the university enough slate contact so that it cannot deny the two admission on racial grounds. John P, Nelson, in closing arguments, said the issue in the case is not whether Tulane is a public or private institution. Because of an 1884 legislative act, Nelson said, the issue is the extent of Tulane's state involvement. John Pat Little, arguing on behalf of the university, contended there was not enough state contacts for Tulane to come within the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The amen dment grants equal protection under the law. After hearing the arguments, Judge Ellis gave attorneys three more weeks to file additional memoranda. Nelson listed these four instances of state involvement: 1. A unique Lax exemption not available to other such institutions; 2. An obligation to accept the governor, mayor and state education superintendent as full, voting members of Tulane's Board of Administrators; 3. A requirement to grant scholarships to nominees of legislators; and 4. A reversionary clause under which Tulane could lose control of a ?3.5 million piece of property on which a $7 million building stands, lose its rights to award degrees and lose other privileges through failure to comply with Act 43. Nelson argued that the Tulane Educational Fund, which operates the university, is bound by Act. 43. Little read portions of the legislative act to the court. He said the word "create" in Act 43 indicated that Tulane University of Louisiana is an entirely different institution from its predecessor, the state-operated University of Louisiana. He said that any changes in the contract must be approved by the Board of Administrators as well as the state. Countering Nelson's arguments, ho said that tax exemptions are not unique and the three state and city officials on the board have never tried to influence it. The two Negro women, Barbara Marie GuLUory and Pearlie Hardin EUoie, both from New Orleans, were told they were academically qualified but could not be admitted because of restrictions in donations to the universi- ty by Paul Tulane and Mrs. Josephine Louise Newcomb. Former U. S. Dist. Judge J. Skelly Wright had directed their admission in a summary order, but Ellis revoked it when he succeeded Wright and directed a full trial on the case's merits. Judge Ellis' ruling was upheld by the 5th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals which told Ellis to expediate tha case. Rayne Resident Dies When Hit by Auto in Florida PANAMA CITY, Fla. <AP> A 71-year-old Louisiana woman was struck and killed by a car at nearby Long Beach Tuesday night.
