Preme court overturned today the convictions of sit in demonstrators in five major cases. The cases were from Durham n. C. New Orleans Greenville s.c., and two cases from Birm Ingham Ala. The courts action was Dis closed with the release of an opinion by Justice Harlan in which he concurred in part and dissented in part with the majority a action. It was not known immediately who delivered the majority opinion. Presumably it was chief Justice Warren since he released an opinion in the Case from Greenville. S. C. In the Greenville Case Warren declared that a when a state Agency passes a Law compelling persons to discriminate against other persons because of race and the states criminal processes Are employed in a Way which enforces the discrimination mandated by that Law a palpable violation of the 14th amendment cannot be saved by attempting to separate the mental urges of the Warren s opinion in the Case of the two negro ministers said that neither Man incited or aided and abetted in any crime and therefore their conviction had to be set aside.

The attorney said the manager had the right to eject anyone and could use the state trespass Law if he did not wish to take the Law into his on hands with possible violence resulting.
