MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY AUGUST tt HOME EDITION IkU Paper ConiUU vs andits Lead I ity Jail Justice NAACPin Final Plea WASHINGTON Supreme CourtJustice Charles Evans Whittaker may hold the answer to whether racial integration muStbe resumed at Little Rocks Central High School when it re opens Sept 2 But the Answer will not come before next Thursday probably later It was uncertain whether Whit taker would rule alone or with other membersof the nineman court The National Assn for the Ad vancementpf Colored People Fri day asked Whittaker for an pr der removing all legal barriers to immediate reentry of Negro pupils into Central High a focal point in the farranging integra tion controversy THE NAACP action seeks in part to set aside an order of the U S Eighth Circuit Court of Ap peals in St Louis thatwould de lay integration at the Arkansas high school until the Supreme Court has ruled on the main is sues in the case The petition was directed to Whittaker because the full courl is in summer recess until Oct 6 and he has jurisdiction over the EighthCircuit which includes Arkansas iX V v WithWhittaker on hisr way to Los Angeles Thurgood Marshall of New York an attorney for the NAACP filed the petition with the office of the Supreme Couri clerk the courts deputy clerk Edmund P Cullinan Friday night sent the petition via air mail special delivery to Whit taker in Los Angeles where the justice plans to attend the Amer lean Bar Assn convention BASICALLY what the NAACP is asking is quick nullification of a June 2i order of U S District Judge Harry J Lemley of Hope Ark suspending integration a Central High for years The Eighth Circuit Court of Ap peals last Monday Judge Lemley by a 61 vote But on Wednesday the Court o Appeals stayed effectiveness of its ruling until the Supreme Couri acts on an appeal of the Little Rock school board The schoo board was given 30 days in which to petition the high court for a review Marshall asked Whittaker to se aside the stay Even if Whittakei should grant this request there would not be enough time left to dispose of the legal formalitie before reopening of Central High a week from next Tuesday SO MARSHALL asked Whit taker to vacate Lemleys orde granting the delay Should this be done the effec would be to put back in force a once an earlier order for Integra tion at Central High Meanwhile in Little Rock reg istration for
