WCourt turns down appeal in
Mississippi desegregation case

w IF w %WE lkawmw

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Sulpreme Court sidestepped a dispute
over -whether Mississippi has done
enough to desegregate state-supported
So11eges and universities - an issue the
ustice Department said the court may
need to reconsider.
Yesterday, the justices turned down an
appeal by black residents who say a
revised college-admission plan and a
long-standing funding formula have left
in place remnants of the old segregated
system.
"How can there be choice between
massively superior former all-white
universities with vast resources and for-
a erly all-black colleges without such
asic necessities as showers, heat, air
conditioning and decent roofs?" the
appeal said.
Justice Department lawyers had
advised the justices to reject the appeal
because further issues remain to be
resolved by a lower court. But govern-
ment lawyers said the nation's highest
court may need to review the case.
Gdvernment lawyers said a lower

court ruling in the case, if it remains
intact, "will have serious adverse conse-
quences for the educational opportuni-
ties of African-American students in
Mississippi."
In 1992, the Supreme Court ruled
that Mississippi must do more to deseg-
regate its colleges and universities than
simply let whites and blacks attend the
schools of their choice.
But the justices left it to lower courts
to determine exactly what remedy to
require.
The high court also:
Turned down an Arizona Indian
tribe's challenge of a state tax on the
revenue of a hotel on its reservation.
The hotel is owned by the Yavapai-
Prescott Indian Tribe but operated by a
private corporation.
Let stand the at-large system used
to elect judges in Milwaukee County,
Wis. The local NAACP said the system
violated the federal Voting Rights Act
by making it too difficult for black can-
didates to win.
Refused to reinstate a $452,000

award won, and then lost, by a woman
who was sexually assaulted by a Florida
policeman. A lower court said the town
of Lake Hamilton could not be held
responsible for the officer's actions.
Mississippi began desegregating
its state-run colleges under court
order in 1962, when James Meredith
was admitted to the University of
Mississippi.
Black residents filed the current law-
suit against the state in 1975.
The Supreme Court's 1992 ruling
in the case said the state appeared to
have perpetuated segregation by
relying on standardized admission
tests that discriminated against
blacks. Mississippi's historically
white colleges required higher mini-
mum test scores than did the histori-
cally black colleges.
A federal judge approved new
admission standards to be used by
all eight state-funded schools, rely-
ing on various combinations of high
school grades and standardized test
scores.

CASE
Continued from Page 1
throughout the state and nation.
Gov. John Engler recently spoke out
against abortion in response to a pro-
choice demonstration in Ann Arbor last
weekend.
"The governor is pro-choice. but you
have to remember that state issues are
limited because of the Supreme Court,"
said Engler's spokesperson, John
Truscott, who cited the state's 24-hour
waiting period and parental consent for
minors laws as small strides for pro-
life. "He certainly states his position.
but he's not going out campaigning
every day."
State Rep. Mary Schroer (D-Ann
Arbor) said GOP leaders have worked
hard to strip women's right to choose,
while misinterpreting pro-choice ideol-
ogy.
"They're constantly chipping away
with the right-to-life to try to win points
without the best intentions," said
Schroer, who plans to propose a House
tribute for the 25th anniversary. "Pro-
life doesn't understand the concept.
We're not advocating abortion. We're
advocating choice for women."
When Congress reconvenes in the
upcoming weeks, banning late-term
abortion will be one of the major issues
that the House of Representatives will

discuss, said U.S. Rep Lynn Rivers, (D-
Ann Arbor), a pro-choice advocate who
opposes late-term abortion. She said it's
a precarious situation with numerous
pro-life advocates in Congress and a
currently untested Supreme Court.
"I'm very concerned," Rivers said.
"It is not clear whether there is a major-
ity on the Supreme Court who wants to
overturn Roe v. Wade."
On campus, students' opinions vary
on abortion, with some praising the
work during the past 25 years and oth-
ers calling abortion murder.
"We've come a long way," said
Music junior Heather Garcia. "A lot
of courage was around then and to
make such a decision should be hon-
ored."
First-year student Amber Ying, who
grew up in a Catholic family, said her
upbringing could not convince her to
force a woman to have an unwanted
pregnancy.
"I'm pro-choice 100 percent" Ying
said. "I don't have the right to tell a
woman what to do with her body. It's an
anniversary representing women's lib-
eration - standing up and taking
charge."
But the traditionally liberal Ann
Arbor campus is not lacking in pro-life
supporters.
"It's a complex issue," LSA
senior Azmat Butt said. "I personal-

ly put the right of child over tyre
right of the woman. Since there's
~noone to advocate for the unborn
fetus, we need to represent its voice
and life."
Beth Matthews, co-president of
the Undergraduate Intervarsity
Christian Fellowship, said she
believes the speeches and upcoming
pro-life events should create greater
awareness.
"I would hope that the 25th
anniversary will be a time when peo-
ple think about the issue," Matthews
said. "We want to raise the discus-
sion of abortion above political
name-calling into the moral and
social issues."
State Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann
Arbor) said it's hard for students to
remember the importance of Roe v.
Wade without having lived through the
times when many women died during
illegal abortion procedures.
Oftentimes, illegal abortions were per-
formed with coat hangers, which
became a symbol of the deadly restric-
tions before Roe v. ade.
"Young people don't remember
the days when abortion was illegal,"
Brater said. "Retelling the history
can be helpful in the importance 'of
maintaining these rights and the
25th anniversary is the time to do
it."
