Two Suffer
Hayden and Potter suffered only
slight facial bruises and cuts.
Photographers and newsmen in
the car behind them rushed up
and apparently frightened off the
assailant, Hayden said. Persons in
the large mob which observed the
beating yelled, "Beat the hell out
of thm an "Teyr wite i
sin, bu they're ngger-lovers."in
Some witnesses told police that
there was no beating and that
Hayden had fallen on his face as
he jumped from the car. Hayden
and Potter filed assault and bat-
tery charges at ityo Hal
The beating came after nearly
one hundred students had march-
ed out of Burgland Negro High
School after rejecting official de-
mands that they sign statements
pledging non-participation in fur-
ther racial protests.
Last week. 11ig students were
temporarily suspended for a walk-
out which ended in mass arrests.
Potter and Hayden arrived in
McComb Tuesday to observe de-
velopments in the civil rights
struggle over voter registration and
Negro direct action. In their role
as "neutral reporters," they in-
terviewed white officials and
leaders of the Student Non-violent
Coordinating Committee.

The United States, Britain and
France were among nine nations

in the 100-nation assembly.
Emotional Debate
'The vote capped an emotion-
packed debate set off by a speech
by Louw denounced by delegates
of black African nations as in-
sulting to their governments.
Afterward Louw told a reporter
he would notify his government
on the action and await instruc-
tons. There was immediate specu-
so far as to withdraw from the
United Nations.
He charged that the move was
the result of a prearranged cam-
paign by African nations "about
which we had been forewarned."
At the height of the debate
Ambassador Seyni Loum of Sene-
gal announced his country would
mnove today for expulsion of South
Africa from the United Nations.

Louw declared the censure mo-
tion was out of order and should
be considered in the Assembly's
special political committee, which
is handling the perennial issue of
racial segregation in South Africa.
As for expunging his speech,
Louw said that would be applying
a double standard-one for minor-
ity groups, another for multi-
nation groups.

Kau per Reviews Parochial School Aid
As Supreme Court Decisions have stated, limited federal aid to
parochial schools appears to be constitutional, Prof. Paul G. Kauper
of the Law School declared yesterday.
Speaking on "Constitutional Law: Today's Vital Issues," Prof
Kauper said that President John F. Kennedy, in basing his belief
that aid to parochial schools is unconstitutional on Justice Hugo
Black's opinion in the Everson case, is looking at the court decision
too narrowly.
Black Opinion

Justice Black, in that case, said that, although a state may
help parents in transporting their children t6 parochial schools,
the state could not aid religion or use tax funds to support religious
"The separation of church and state is a question of degree,"
Prof. Kauper noted. "The problem cannot be solved with a broad
brush approach. Complete separation has no foundation in American
