Segregation
Poliey Ends-
In Georgia ---

ATLANTA ()--School segrega-
tion, already abandoned in many
Georgia cities, was ended officially
yesterday as a state policy by the
state board of education.
The board voted unanimously to
sign a pledge of compliance with
fedei-al regulations issued under
the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The
pledge opens the way for school
systems in the state to continue
receiving $55 million in federal
subsidies if they sign a similar
pledge.
Education department spokes-
men said an additional $40.million
annually in federal money might
come to Georgia schools under a
bbll now pending in Congress.
No Debate
There was no debate by the
.e board mraembers present be-
fore the vote. to end, a state' seg-"
regation stand in effect since rel
construction days.
Local school boards may refuse
to sign the pledge of compliance
and operate without federal .unds.
Bit they were advised at regional
teetings recently that the fed-
eral government might bring court
action under the new Civil Rights
Act, instituting such action first
in couaties where local school
systems have not signed the com'
pliance pledge.
Local Schools
Local school systems have until
March 3 to sigi a similar car-
tificate or submit a plan of de-
segregation to the United States
Educatior Office.
S mince the 1954 Supreme Court
rulngoutlawing school segrega-
tion, Georgia has shifted from
compulsory school closing laws to
local option, tuition grants and
freedom of choice plans.
Court action, however, ended,
segregation in some cities and
so ie voluntarily integrated the
schools.

The University will receive
$188,000 from the federal govern-
ment as part of the "War on Pov-
erty" Program.
Of the $101 million to be spent

$331,200 will be spent in Michigan
President Lyndon B. Johnson an-
nounced Monday.
In another announcement, Sar-
gent Shriver, director of the Of-
fice of Economic Opportunity, said
that a conservation center will be
set up by the Job Corps in Goge-
bic County in Michigan's Upper
Peninsula.
The Wayne County Board of
Supervisors will receive $66,000 of.
the money alloted to the state and
the Lansing school district will re-
ceive $77,000, the Detroit News re-
ported.
The University will use its
funds to "demonstrate that resi-
dents of an urban-fringe pocket
can help, organize and learn to
manage their own anti-poverty
program," the White House re-
ported.
The money will aid the former
federal housing project, Willow
Village, plan a community action
program. The administrators of the
program will be the Institute of
Labor and Industrial Relations, a
joint program between the Uni-
versity and Wayne State Univer-
sity.
Poverty Definition
The grant to Wayne County is
designed to "define area poverty
problems and develop programs to
meet them. . . . More than 32,000
families in the Detroit area earn
less than' $4,000 a year. Nearly
15,000 men and 7,000 women in
the working force are unemploy-
ed," White House sources said.
In Lansing, the money is 'aimed
to help educational aid programs
for the poor, such as teacher or-
ientation programs, community
school counseling and coordina-
tion, and remedial, programs.
Conservation Center
The conservation center will be
located in the Ottawa National'
Forest, seven miles south of Mar-
enisco. Gov. George Romney has a
30 day period in which he may
either pass or veto the plan. This
center is just one of"a number of
things that must' be done to bol-
ster the area's economy, Rep.'

SELMA, Ala ()-Negroes re-
newing their press for the right
to vote were allowed to use one
of the two main entrances to the
county courthouse yesterday, but
insisted on using the other door
also.
About 160 of them went to jail.
Sheriff James G. Clark, who
earlier told the Negroes they must
enter the building through an
alley, relented when another group
appeared and told them they could
use the front entrance.
With the latest arrests, the
total of Negroes jailed in the last
two days in Selma climbed above
200. Tuesday, 62 Negroes were
arrested . on charges of unlawful
assembly when they refused to
line up in an alley, as instructed
by Clark, to enter the courthouse.
Martin Luther King, the leader of
the demonstration, then went to
the justice department to try and
obtain intervention in the situa-
tion.
Little Interest
As before, yesterday's confron-
tation attracted little apparent
interest within the white com-
munity.
Clark told those in the first
group of about 20 that they were
under arrest when they attempted
to line up outside another door
and then a short time later he
arrested another group of about
the same size.
Then a much larger crowd of
about 120 Negroes showed up. The
sheriff took no immediate action.
Instead, he sent word to Wilson
Baker, Selma public safety direc-
tor, that the Negroes were block-
ing the sidewalk.
Baker, explaining that he had
no cause to arrest them if they
continued to block traffic, told
the Negroes they would have to
line up single file, and they com-
plied.
Clark waited about 15 minutes,
then told the group, "You have
one minute to disperse."
Under Arrest
He counted off the seconds.
When a minute was gone he told
them, "You are all under arrest.
He charged them with unlawful
assembly and with refusal to obey
an officer.
Also, in Laurel, Miss., aformer
University graduate student was
allegedly assaulted last Friday by
six Laurel men for participating
in a voter registration drive, it
was reported yesterday.
Prof. Edward Dubinsky now of
the math department at Tulane
University was arrested, along
with two of his assailants, on
charges of disorderly conduct. The
three men were released on bond
pending trial.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia ()
-The chances of a major Indo-
nesian invasion in Malaysia seem
remote despite a large military
buildup on the frontier in Borneo,
informed diplomatic and govern-
ment sources said yesterday.
These sources believe Britain
deliberately encouraged an atmos-
phere of crisis to head off the pos-
sibility of a major stepup of bor-
der attacks that would still be
below the level of serious invasion.
Some of these sources said the
tactic appears to have worked but
that Indonesia will probably con-
tinue its border raids and landings
on the Malaysian mainland at
about the present level.
Military Buildup
Because of the continuing mnili-
tary buildup by Britain in Malay-
sia, these attacks and incursions
stand even less chance of success
than in the past.
Diplomats also believe the pos-
sibility of a major conflict in
Malaysia Borneo has been lessen-
ed by the political situation in
Indonesia.

Court To Hear,
Districting Suit
LANSING (A')-The Michigan
Supreme Court released yesterday
an order for an April 6 hearing
on legislative apportionment.
The order is in response to a
suit filed last August by 33 Re-
publicans fighting the court's
adoption of a Democratic-spon-
sored legislative apportionment
plan. The plan contributed to a
heavy Democratic majority in
both houses of the Legislature.
The Republican suit, filed Aug.
21, charged that the plan was
unconstitutional. The suit claimed
it consisted of "partisan gerry-
mandering" and denied Negro vot-
ing rights.
It asked that the plan be de-
clared void for all elections fol-
lowing the general election of last
Nov. 3.
The suit asks the court to order
the commission to adopt a plan
complying with other guidelines in
the one man-one vote opinion.
The observance of traditional
political boundaries and keeping
the compactness and continuity
of districts was suggested.

PARIS-France and West Ger-
many agreed yesterday to make
a new try at European political
union, but sidestepped the con-
troversial question of West Ger-
many's role in nuclear defense.
President Charles de Gaulle and
West German Chancellor Ludwig
Erhard, ending a two-day meet-
ing at nearby Rambouillet, joined
in, ascall for conferences among
the six nations of the Commton
Market for some sort of political
union or coordination.
Contact Others
They agreed to contact the
other four Common Market mem-
bers-Belgium, the Netherlands,
Luxembourg and Italy-to pre-
pare for such diplomatic meetings.
Spokesmen for the two delega-
tions told a news conference de
Gaulle and Erhard mentioned de-
fense only in passing.
The West German em'nbassy' later
announced that the formal state-
ment had been issued by mistake,
that it was in fact a joint direc-
tive drafted for the spokesmen of
the two delegations.
Three Points
This statement and/or directive
covered three points. It said de
Gaulle and Erhard had agreed:
-To intensify cooperation be-
tween France and West Germany;
-To launch a new move toward
political coordination among the
Common Market nations-omit-
ting any contact with Britain,
which has sought to be in on
such talks from the beginning;
and
-To contact the United States
and British governments in a new
search for German reunification.
The leaders agreed a lasting
world peace cannot be guaran-
teed until Germany has been re-
unified on the basis of self-de-
termination. This would require
talks among the big four powers.

government and is seriously em-
barrassing the regime with dem-
onstrations and agitation over

leaders are reported devoting a
major portion of their energies to
the internal power struggle.

SAIGON (P)--A new Buddhist
crisis confronted Premier Tran
Van Huong's United States-backed
administration yesterday as a po-
tential cabinet crisis unexpectedly
eased. The specter of street fight-
ing revived..
Five militant Buddhist leaders,
accusing Huong of trying to de-
stroy their faith, launched a hun-
ger strike to force him out of

office. They declared they will
fast until death if necessary. Some
of their followers clashed with
troops in a three-hour riot.
At the same time four generals
and a civilian were sworn in as
cabinet officers after a 24-hour
hitch caused by the reluctance of
one, Brig. Gen. Nguyen Cao Ky,
to assume a new job as Minister
of Youth and Sports.
Re"ected Offer
Commander of the Vietnamese
Air Force, Ky had at first rejected
the appointment. Two U.S. gen-
erals were reported to have helped
persuade him to accept. Ky told
newsmen, however, he will stay in
the cabinet "only a couple of
weeks" and will keep command of
the air force, a pivotal organiza-
tion in Vietnamese military af-
fairs.
The other three generals sur-
rendered their military jobs,
though keeping their rank.
U.S. officials expressed relief
when the new ministers were in-
stalled. This was at least a step
toward burying the hatchet be-
tween the civilians and the gen-
erals.
Campaign Underway
Even as the hew ministers were
being invested, a Buddhist cam-
paign was under way in another
part of the capital.
In a compound of shacks usedI
as the headquarters of the South
Vietnamese of the Buddhist faith,
about 10,000 people gathered to
hear Thich Tam Chau, a Buddhist
monk who has repeatedly protest-
ed Vietnamese governmental ac-
tions in the past 18 months.
