GRAND RAPIDS (P)-The State'
Board of Education, Gov. William
Milliken, Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley
and the Kent County Intermediate
School District were made de-
fendants by court order yesterday
in a suit seeking racial balancing
of Grand Rapids schools.
U.S. District Judge Albert Engle
continued the Grand Rapids Board
of Education and 11 suburban
school districts as defendants to
the suit, brought 15 months ago by
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
The suit charges by de jure by
law and de facto by housing pat-
tern segregation by the Grand
Rapids school system, the original
defendant. The 11 suburban dis-
tricts were added on the NAACP's
motion two months ago.
The NAACP argued that expan-
sion into other districts might be
necessary to accomplish racial bal-
ance in the city's system.
Due to enlargement of the list of
defendants,. Engle postponed in-

WASHINGTON (P) - The House
refused yesterday to ban sex dis-
crimination in the admission poli-
cies of undergraduate colleges.
By a vote of 194 to 189 it adopted
an amendment to a higher educa-
tion bill that would exempt under-
graduate colleges-which enroll 95
per cent of college students-from
an anti-sex discrimination require-
The vote, which is subject to
reconsideration before final action
on the bill, came less than a month
after the House voted 354 to 23 for
a proposed constitutional amend-
ment that would guarantee women
equal rights with men.
"Any member who voted for the
equal rights admendment and votes
for this amendment today is just
giving lip service to the idea of
equality for women," said Rep.
Bella Abzug (D-N.Y.).
Action on the amendment moved
the House closer to a final vote on
the higher education bill, a huge
$21.7 billion measure that would
extend a number of existing pro-
grams for five more years and
launch a new program of direct
general aid to colleges.
Members from districts that in-
clude formerly all-male colleges
that have begun to admit a limited

fight for the amendment to exempt
undergraduate colleges frm the
prohibition against sex discrimina-

offered the amendment, read sev-
