The request was made Monday af- ter the board of education failed to submit a plan to Federal District court Judge Hubert Will for the trans- portation of students not admitted to Gage Park and Morgan Park High schools because of the quotas. On Dec. 6 Will ordered the board to submit a more definite transportation proposal after it had drawn up an in- formal plan. Meanwhile, the board wrote letters Dec. 21 to Will and the plaintiffs say- ing it was withdrawing its proposal. it could not afford the cost and that any new two schools af- fecting-the quotas would be "prema- ture'1 as the board is working on a desegregation plan. The proposal submitted to Will would have provided for seven buses at an annual cost of to take students turned away from the two schools to under-utilized ones in vari- ous parts of the city. Michael J. Murray, board attorney, said the board pays the transporta- tion costs of these students who trav- el on regular Chicago Transit authori- ty routes. The yearly total expense is approximately per year, he added. The attorney for tbe plaintiffs in the suiVparents of black students ex- cluded from attending the schools be- cause of the quota limitations, labeled the board move "an intolerable situa- tion." Thomas Morsch, the attornev ar- gued that because only black and Spanish-surnamed students were pre- vented from attending Gage and Mor- gan Park as a result of the quotas, the plans are "unconstitutional and illegal." Morsch said that according to sta- tistics released by tbe board, black students who had wanted to at- tend Morgan Park last fall were ex- cluded because of the quota. At Gage Park, ill Macks- and 81 Spanish-sur- named students were turned away. He added that no white students seek- ing admittance to the schools were prohibited from attending. The quotas were implemented to ensure that student enrollments would not become predominantly black. Gage, at 5630 W, Rockwell sL, is in the second year of its quota plan, while quotas for Morgan Park. 1744 W.
