Decision Says Color
Cannot Stop Men from
Choosing Own Rulers$
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 3.-The Su-
preme Court today upset a decision of
nine years' standing and ruled that
Negroes have the right to vote in
Texas Democratic primary elections,
prompting Justice Roberts to protest
that the tribunal's opinions are get-
ting to be like a railroad ticket good
only for one day in one train.
Eight-to-One Decision
The eight-to-one decision, stating
that "the great privilege of choosing
his rulers may not be denied a man
by the state because of his color," ov-
erturned the Court's unanimous opin-
ion in 1935 sustaining the exclusion
of Negroes from participation in a
Texas Democratic primary.
The decision has far-reaching im-
plications for the South, where suc-
cess in a primary usually is tanta-
mount to election, but whether it will
lead to any great increase immedate-
ly in the number of Negro voters is
considered doubtful. The decision
does not touch upon other barriers
existing in various parts of the South,
such as poll taxes, educational tests,
Negro Denied Vote
Specifically involved in today's
litigation was Lonnie E. Smith, a Ne-
gro who contended he was denied the
right to vote in a 1940 primary by
Houston, Tex., election judges. There
are an estimated 571,000 Negroes of
voting age in Texas.
Of the .present members of the
Court, only Chief Justice Stone and
Justice Roberts were on the bench at
the time of the earlier decision.

Gremlins Kept Away
From Combat Flyers
With Tests, Controls
Psychology is helping to keep mil-
itary flyers at maximum efficiency
in this war, Prof. Walter R. Miles of
the medical school at Yale University
said yesterday.
Speaking before the Michigan
chapter of the Society of Sigma Xi,
Dr. Miles said "gremlins" are being
kept away from airmen through psy-
chological tests and controls. Psy-
chologists help flyers to add their
improved human performance'to the
mechanical perfection of the planes
themselves, he said.
The decompression chamber is
standard equipment used by psychol-
ogists and other experts to aid in
solving the many psycho-physiologi-
cal problems connected with adjust-
ing the human organism to flight,
especially at high altitudes, Dr. Miles
said. This apparatus can produce a
large range of simulated altitude ef-
fects which are studied and evaluat-
Among the problems being worked
upon is the psychology of vision. Dif-
ficulties of vision involved in landing
of planes and night flying are re-
ceiving much attention, Dr. Miles

This gang of B26 Marauder boys
still fly the same missions they were
flying when I saw them in Tunisia
six months ago. They're still fight-
ing the same war, still racking up the
same record for laying their eggs on
precision targets and still, for the
most part, bringing their ships home
safely despite flak holes, wrecked
controls and severed props. But be-
tween missions they live a better life
than in those days in Tunisia when
they literally wallowed in mud, their
tent areas were quagmires, their
clothes and bedding were soaked half
the time.
Here in Sardinia there isn't much
to do but at least they can live like
human beings. Many of them still
stick to tents but they're better
Jackson Police
Uncover Plot
Charge Youths with
Subversive ActivitiesI
JACKSON, April 3 --('P)- State
and city police officers pondered to-
night what action, if any, might be
taken against a small group of high
school youths whom they charged
with organizing a "secret society"
with an immediate program of sub-
versive activities and a long range
objective of "seizing the government"
in 15 or 20 years.
To date their activities, the officers
said, had been confined to petty
thievery, the printing of anti-racial
pamphlets and the holding of meet-
ings in the public library and in the
attic of the home of their leader, a

Prof. Christian
To Give Good
Friday Recital
In keeping with a tradition of the
past decade, Prof. Palmer Christian,
University organist, will present a
program of Good Friday music ap-
propriate to that day at 4:15 p.m.
Friday in Hill Auditorium.
This annual hour of Holy Week'
music affords opportunity to many,
especially those who may be unable
to attend services in the various
churches, to give attention to the sig-
nificance of Good Friday.
Prof. Christian will highlight the
organ recital with two Bach "Chorale
Preludes" from which come the fam-
iliar refrains "O Sacred Head Now
Wounded" and "When on the Cross
the Saviour Hung." Other selections
on the program include a "Toccata"
by Frescobaldi, the third act of Wag-
ner's "Parsifal," and numbers by
Karg-Elert, Malling, Bossi and Du-
l pre.
Selma Smith

Mendelssohn Theatre.
Miss Smith, a member of Mu Phi
Epsilon, is at present a pupil of

She is giving the recital in partial
fulfillment of the requirements for
her B.M. degree.
