Court approves desegregation
at public schools in Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -
Topeka's public schools have elim -
inated any traces of the "separate
but equal" discrimination outlawed
by a historic 1954 U.S. Supreme
Court ruling even though they are
not racially balanced, a federal judge
ruled yesterday.
U.S. District Judge Richard
Rogers, ruling on a suit that
reopened the landmark Brown vs.
Topeka Board of Education case,
said the district had achieved a high
level of integration with a neighbo -
rhood school system and does not
discriminate against minorities.

Chris Hansen, an American
Civil Liberties Union attorney who
acted for the plaintiffs, said he read
the decision "as approving continu -
ing segregation in Topeka under the
guise of neighborhood schools."
Hansen said he will talk to his
clients and other school desegre -
gation lawyers before deciding
whether to appeal.
Gary Sebelius, attorney for the
school board, said the decision
shows that the district has made
great progress.
The reopened suit asked the
district to do more to integrate min -

orities into a school system that is
74 percent white. The suit said the
district dragged its feet in imple-
menting desegregation and "sent out
signals" to white residents prior to
integrating white schools to give
them time to get out of the path of
integration.
In his 50-page decision, Rogers
said the Constitution does not re -
quire complete racial balance and
that Topeka Unified School District
No. 501 "provides a high-quality
educational opportunity to its
students on a non-discriminatory
basis."

Democrats grow on

State Rep. David Honigman (R-West Bloomfield) illustrates an auto ignition locking device that stops drunks
from driving. Yesterday, he introduced a bill which would permit judges to install the devices in cars of con-
victed drunken drivers.

state," Levine said. The College
Democrats have about 150-250
members on campus.
The students plan to focus on
recent campus issues, such as
racism. Levine seeks to work with
MSA, the College Republicans,
and other political groups.
He said they support recent
student initiatives to combat
racism, including the United Co-
alition Against Racism and Black

Action Movement III.
Levine said the group would also
like to work with the Latin
American Solidarity Coalition and
the University of Michigan Asian
Student Coalition, because "racism
is a big issue."
Highest on their agenda is
publicizing the group. "Next year
things will gear up with the '88
elections," Levine said.
Bill Weinzel, an aide to Senator

campus
Donald Riegle (D-Mich.), warned
the group not to be too confident in
their popularity at a meeting Wed-
nesday.
"Republicans are strong on a lot
of campuses across the state. But
the College Democrats at Michigan
are taking a lead role, with its size
and enthusiasm. I hope the
enthusiasm here will spill over to
other campuses. The tide is turning
at U of M," Weinzel said.

Soviets allow 300 to

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Soviet Union will allow some 300
people to emigrate and be reunited
with families living in the West,
the chairman of the Helsinki com -
mission said yesterday.
The announcement represented
the resolution of 137 humanitarian

cases from a list of 442 raised last
November with the Soviet govern -
ment by the Commission on Secur -
ity and Cooperation in Europe.
Commission Chairperson Rep.
Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said the an -
nouncement was "a positive move
forward" because it marks the first

emigrate
time the Soviets had responded dir -
ectly to a list of concerns presented
by the commission.
Hoyer also noted that the word
came on the eve of a trio by House
Speaker Jim Wright (D-Texas)
and 19 other House members for
talks with Soviet officials in Mos -
cow.

Student views differ on speed limit

JIL

70 mph and it is argued that the
enforcement of 55 is often
impossible.
LSA junior Mary Beth Palmer
said she drives 65-70 mph anyway.
"If I know I can drive 65 and it's
not against the law then I will," she
said
Opponents of the bill argue that
the 55 mph speed limit has saved
lives. It has prevented 26,000
deaths and 90,000 severe head
injuries.
Third-year law student David
Balser disagrees with the bill, "I

think it was a bad move. I under-
stand data that 55 saves lives."
Balser also said the oil shortage
that inspired the 55 mph speed
limit may be repeated.
Other students said the higher
speed limit wouldn't make much
difference.
LSA senior Loyd Siberzweig, an
LSA senior said, "I really don't see
what the difference is in 10 miles.
It will only get you there a few
minutes faster."
The Michigan State Senate voted
Tuesday to raise the speed limit on
rural interstate highways. Pending

the approval of the House and Gov.
James Blanchard, approximately
720 miles of rural highway would
have a speed limit of 65 mph, some
as soon as Memorial Day.
The new limit would effect parts
of Inter state-69, I-75, I-94, 1-96, I-
196, and I-275. "Some local areas
of expressway may meet the
criterion but it is still unknown,"
according to Ann Arbor Police
Capt. R. Conn, of the special
services division.
Part of Michigan's proposed law
would forbid the use of radar
detectors.
