Memphian May Be Freed from Murder Charge Court Is Asked To Allow Negroes In White School LITTLE ROCK, March 17. Iff) — TJ. S. District Court here has been nsked to direct that Ne^ro pupils be ^permitted to attend the Dcwitt, Ark., School, now restricted to white students. The order was sought in a supplemental pleading filed yesterday by w. Harold Flowers, Pine BlufI Negro attorney who represents a group or Negro residents In a suit against directors of the Dewil.t School District. The'• pleading contended Negro" residents were entitled to send their children to the Dewitt High School under the U. S. Constitution. Arkansas law prescribes segregation of white anci Negro races in schools. The original suit, filed about two months ago, asked that the directors be required to provide "equal facilities." In their reply, the directors denied there was discrimination and set out that although there was no high school for Negroes in the Dewitt district, students were transported to another district by bus. Yesterday's brief reiterated Hie assertion that proper facilities were not furnished Negroes. The suit has not been set foi trial. Balkans Seethe With Rumors of War Against Tito ROME, March 17.
