This somewhat unexpected resist- ance In the so-called border areas was viewed by some leaders as an indication of what might happen in applying the Supreme Court rul- ing against segregated schools to the Deep Ssulh states. Boycott Promoted A boycott, promoted by Bryant Bowles, president of (he National Assn. for the Advancement of While People, kept nearly two thirds of the pupils out of Mil- ford's Lakeview Are. School where 11 Negroes were registered. At- tendance jumped nearly back to normal Friday after a new school board rescinded an order admit- ting the Negroes. After one Baltimore demonstra- tion a 24-year-old white man was fined for hitting a N'egro pupil leaving Southern High School. Jack Zimmerman was arrested on the spot and fined before the day end- ed for punching 14-year-old Leon, Thompson. Two other while men and a Ne- gro were arrested fa the same dis- turbance and were fined inch for disorderly conduct. Incidents Occur James F. liyrnes of South Carolina was the first to point out last week that incidents were oc- curring in areas with relatively small .Vegro populations anrt might be multiplied in stales with a great- er percentage of Negro population. Similar views were expressed by officials in Florida. Georgia. Vir- ginia, North Carolina and Louisi- ana. "Such episodes will spread wherever integration is tried, re- gardless of what kind of decree the Supreme Court hands down." said Louisiana Sen. William Rain- ach, chairman of a Joint legislative committee to continue segregation.

Richard Ervin tolrl Ihe Supreme Court that imme- diate in would "only result in translating the present passive intellectual dif- ferences in thought and emotional feelings lo an active, positive and violent physical resistance." He said in a brief that unless the state is given sufficient time to work out the problem "we frankly doubt whether we can save our public school system." Ervin submitted the brief upon request of the court'for views on how best to apply the decision of May 17 outlawing public school seg- regation. The court will hear ar- guments Dec. 6. Agrees Byrnes Georgia's Democratic guberna- torial nominee, Lt. Cov. .Marvin Grllfin. shared Byrnes' view. "Already, throughout the fringe areas of states where segregation is the law, we see strong evi- dences of revolt and opposition to this monstrous anti segregation edict."

J Power Group Attacks GOP For Secrecy WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 Ift-The American Public Power Assn. ac- cused the administration today o( an "unconscionable, Inexcusable and indefensible" attempt to keep secret the details of the Dixon- Yates power contract. The association statement, sent to all members of the Senate- House Atomic Energy Committee, marked the latest round in the heated controversy over negotia- tions between the Atomic Energy Commission and the Dixon-Yates group for a new 107-million-dollar power plant. President Eisenhower has order- id the contract, to supply the Ten- nessee Valley Authority with addi- tional electricity to replace some of the TVA power used by AEC. The association, representing 700 ,ocal publicly owned utilities, said it has been turned down by the government on four requests for a chance to review the proposed contract, which it said has never been published. Committee officials said the AEC las not them that a inal contract has been concluded. The AEC, by law. is required to show the completed contract to the egislalive group. The power association called on he committee to make the con- ract available to it and requested a chance to testify at open com- mittee hearings to be held in the 'ulure. The association said its mem- )ers are entitled to know about the proposed contract because they are, in effect, "junior partners" of TVA. tyany oT the local utilities market TVA power.
