Test case heard
ondiscrimination

WASHINGTON (A) - The Chain-
ber of Commerce told the Supreme
Court yesterday that employers
are not required by the federal
civil rights law to hire blacks who
participate in racial demonstra-
tions near their plants.
The business group gave its
views in a friend-of-court brief in!
a test case in St. Louis to be heard
by the justices in March.
McDonnell-Douglas Corp. is ap-j
pealing a decision made last June
by the U. S. Circuit Court in St.
Louis that the company violated
the 1964 Civil Rights Act by refus-
ing to rehire Percy Green, a black
mechanic.
In October, 1964, Green and oth-
er members of ACTION and other
civil , rights groups stalled their
cars on five main access roads toj
the McDonnell-Douglas plant dur-
ing the morning rush hour.
The "stall-in" was staged to dra-
matize racial discrimination com-1
plaints against the company.
In a split decision, the. circuitI

court ruled that McDonnell-Douglas
had to rehire Green if the mili-
tant civil rights activist was
qualified for the job.
The chamber's lawyers said
they agreed that the 1964 law and
1971 amendments barred employ-
ers from hiring practices that sys-
tematically preferred white work-
ers over blacks.
But, the chamber added, Mc-
Donnell - Douglas' "isolated act"
of disqualifying one worker does
not amount to discrimination
against his racial group and there-
fore is not illegal under the law.
Besides, the chamber said,
"apart from the absence of any
serious racial barrier, the conduct
here at issue was also clearly jus-
tified by legitimate business con-
siderations."
The brief cited rulings by the
court in labor cases beginning in
1939 that employers are not re-
quired to "finance activities" that
"undermine industrial plant disci-
pline and loyalty."

DOMINO'S ANN STREET SHOP

(Our Delivery Is Even Faster This Term)

By AP, UPI, and Reuters
LONDON-Prime Minister Ed-
ward Heath flew to Washington
Monday 'night for two days of
talks with President Nixon on
world trading problems, mone-
tary reform and defense mat-
ters.
It will be the first Anglo-
American summit meeting; since
Britain joined the European
Common Market.
A major theme is expected to
be the way in which British
membership will affect relations
between the United States and
the enlarged nine-nation com-
munity.1
The two leaders are also ex-
pected to discuss the peace ar-
rangements for the Vietnam set-
tlement Although Nixon would
like Britain to contribute 'to the
reconstruction of V i e t n a m,
Heath supposedly feels only a
small amount of aid can be pro-
vided.
Also high on agenda is discus-

Sion of the Middle East situation.
Informed British sources say
Heath is expected to press for
a new peace approach, concen-
trating on parallel efforts by the
United States and European gov-
ernments to stimulate rapproche-
ment between Israel and the
Arabs.
Heath has been portrayed as
thinking that the Nixon admin-
istration for some time has been
frozen into immobility because
of the Jewish vote factor in the
presidential election.
Economically, the' talks are
seen as a preliminary to this
year's international negotiations
on the world monetary system
expected to take place under the
General Agreement on Tariffs
and Trade (GATT).
Parallel to the Nixon-Heath
talks will be separate discussions
between the British Foreign Sec-
retary, Sir Alec Douglas-Home
and Secretary of State William
Rogers.
