LXIIf Associated Press and United Press Full Either Ike Gov Faubus Has to Back Down Now By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON UP Someone has to back down on this one President Eisenhower or Gov Orval Faubus of Arkansas If Faubus gets away with what hes doing using National Guardsmen to keep Negroes from a school ordered integrated by a federal judge every Southern governor could feel free to do the Seven Cents Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 5 1957 This Paper Consists ol Four One No 353 If he refused to go what would happen then Somewhere along this line Eisenhower provided hes wiliing to take a stand and back up the try in one way or another to persuade Faubus to back down as grace fully as he can GOV ORVAL FAUBUS fAME AEouT The Weather Mason City

would make a farce of the Supreme Courts ban on public school segregation It would a breakdown of the federal gov ernments power to carry out the law For almost 40 months since the courts ruling Eisenhower has treated Southern resistance to in tegration with patience and plati tudes It seemed likely he could go on doing that as he prepared this week for a long vacation Some disturbances might occur at newly integrated schools open ing this week But that had hap pened before and there was no crisis There appeared no reason to expect a crisis now Then Fau bus supplied it i Refused Again What he did he did twice Before a Little Rock High school opened this week federal Judge Ronald Dayies had ordered it integrated But when it opened Faubus had National Guardsmen there to keep Negroes out The school board willing to en roll the Negroes but unable to do so because of the troops asked Judge Davies what to do next Again he ordered the school inte grated Again Faubus used the troops to keep Negroes out He said he wasnt defying the court but only trying to keep peace and order One thing was certain He was not cooperating with the court to carry out its order he was obstructing the car rying out of that order He would have been cooperat ing if he had used the troops to prevent any interference with the Negro children who wanted to go theschool Instead he used the troops to bar the children who were neither disturbing the peace nor creating disorder In Background Eisenhower is staying in the background so far letting the judge and the Justice Department headed by Atty Gen Brownell do the acting for the government But the ultimate responsibility for whatever is dons rests on Eisen hower If Faubus backs down he stands the chance of looking ridi culous Hes the first Southern governor to try anything like this It he wasnt willing to see it through he simply created a na tional disturbance needlessly If Faubus stands firm and the judge wants to bring him to court to face contempt charges what happens The governor has sta t i o n e d National Guardsmen around his mansion and U S marshals could hardly force him to face the judge if he doesnt want to AP Wirephoto
