Court Bans Bus
Segregation Laws

WASHINGTON (R) - The Supreme Court yesterday wiped out

state and local laws requiring segregation on buses.
It did so by affirming a decision of a special three-fudge United
states district court in Montgomery, Ala. That court ruled that en-
forced segregation of whites and Negroes on Montgomery buses vio-
lated the U.S. Constitution's guarantees of due process and equal
protection of law.
In a brief unanimous order, the Supreme Court cited its 1954 de-
cision against segregation in public schools. It also cited subsequent
decisions outlawing segregation in public parks and playgrounds and
on public golf links.
No Arguments Heard
As it has done in several segregation cases since its basic school

rFraternity
Inspections
Will Be Held,
By RICHARD TAUB
Annual University program for'
fraternity health and safety in-
spection will soon be underway,'
with houses given aweek's advance
notice of inspection tours, fra-
ternity presidents were told last'
night.
Edi Zeerip, Interfraternity Coun-
cil fraternity relations chairman,
explained that house managers are'
notified a week ahead so that they
will be around to show inspectors
through the house with a minimum
of confusion.
Not City Custom
It is not a common city practice
to' notify local landlords before
such an inspection is made, ac-
cording to John Ryan, Ann Arbor'
building commissioner.'
Landlords are notified only
when they don't live in the build-
ing, so that inspection can take,
place easily, Ryan said. ,
He added that specific frater-;
nity houses were not told last year
when inspections were to take
place, although the whole system
was Informed they would before
a general inspection program be-

munity.
Leedy also warned the presidents,
that some person claiming to be a

bias clauses and closing with
"Well, then where's your integra-

He emphasized that this person.

without listening to any argument.
Except for citing three segrega-
court said was:
"The motion to affirm is grantedI
tion-banning decisions, all the'
and the judgment is affirmed."
This affirmation left no doubt
that the Supreme Court was out-.
lawing segregation on all bus sys-
tems. Earlier this year some ques-
tion had arisen when the court
simply dismissed an appeal from
another decision overturning a
South Carolina segregation law.
That left the decision in effect but
led to confusion - ended yester-
day - as to the Supreme Court's
intent. '
Long Boycott
Negroes in Montgomery have
conducted a long boycott of city
buses as a protest against segre-
gation. One of the things they re-
sorted to was operation of a car
pool to carry those who used to
use the buses.
A state court at Montgomery is
now considering the city's attempt
to halt the car pool as illegal, The
court continued its hearing yester-
day after being informed of the
Supreme Court ruling.
A Negro spokesman said a de-
cision on whether to end the boy-
cott immediately will be made at
a Negro mass meeting tonight.
Gov. Coleman Dissents
In neighboring Mississippi, Gov.
J. P. Coleman said his state would
continue ot segregate Negroes and
whites on public conveyances, de-
spite the Supreme Court order.
"Ou'r attitude about the decision
will be the same as about the
school segregation cases,'' Cole-
man said. Mississippi's public
schools, like many others 'in the
South, are still segregated.
In other actions yesterday the
court:
Refused to review the trial and
conviction of Dr. Samuel H. Shep-
pard, Cleveland osteopath, for the
bludgeon slaying of his wife. #
Denied Gov. J. Bracken Lee of
Utah permission to file suit at-

U. S. foreign aid program. Lee re-
fused to pay part of his 1955 in-

would go to foreign aid. The gov-
ernment tapped his bank accountj
and got the money.

Appointed
.eke Adviser
Prof. Paul W. McCracken of the,
business administration school will
be appointed to the Council of
Economic Advisers, a group that
keeps President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower posted on the economic
state of the nation.
The vacancy was caused by the
resignation-effective Dec. 1-of
Arthur F. Burns, chairman of the,

the University and at the time of
his appointment was doing work in
Washington with the economic ad-
visory group.

is a Republican and a native of
Richland, Iowa. In 1942-43, he was
a commerce department economist.
He then went to the Federal Re-
serve Bank at Minneapolis as fi-
nancial economist and later Direc-
tor of research. He has been at
the University since 1950.
Burns resigned for "personal'
factors," and his resignation was
accepted by the President with
"great reluctance."

is Josepti S. Davis, former profes-!
sor of economic research at Stan-
ford University.

Emphasizes
Sound Dollar
Material assets are given mean-
ing only by proper emphasis on
intangible values, United States'
Treasurer Ivy Baker Priest said
last night.
Stressing principles and ideals
of the economic system under
which we operate, she told a Lec-
ture Series audience.that the sav-
ings and investments of the in-
dividual form the basis for our
successful industrial society.
"We as a nation must retain the
security of the dollar," she de-
clared. "Only through confidence
in the dollar will men and women
be free to "accept the challenge
of life."
Speaking of the present Admin-
istration and Federal Reserve Sys-
tem policies creating "tight
money," Mrs. Priest warned that
"all the elements which encourage
inflation are with us now."

STOCKWELL HALL:
Coed Protests Secrecy
Of Woment's Judic Act
By LEE MARKS
Daily City Editor
A University coed protested yesterday against secrecy surround-
ing dissolution of Stockwell Judiciary Council by Women's Judiciary
Council Nov. 6.
Betsy Grand, '57Ed, claimed also that Stockwell House Director
Margerie McCoy attempted to pressure her when she said she would
write a letter to The Daily explaining the dissolution..
Women's Judic dissolved Stockwell's Judic eight days ago be-
cause of dissension and inability of Stockwell Judic members to
work together, according to Betty Jean Kafka, '57 BAd, Women's
Judic chairman.
Miss Kafka confirmed Miss Grand's contention that Women's

REPORTER'S FINDINGS:
LYL Closely Linked

end of six articles arising from a
year-long investigation of the Labor
Youth League at the University of

was Daily city editor in 1955-56.

question: What was the LYL?)

that debate here would only com-
plicate efforts to restore peace in
Hungary.
Egypt Abstained
The Soviet Union and Czecho-
slovakia opposed this move. Egypt
abstained. The committee can only
recommend consideration of anj
item and its decision must be rati-
fied by the full 79-nation Assembly.
The Soviet bloc repeated its op-
position in the Assembly but the
delegates overrode the objections'
and put the Hungarian item on the
Assembly agenda, 62-9. The dele-
gates then voted 51-0, with 19
abstentions, to take up the Hun-
garian issue directly in the Assem-
bly whenever necessary without
sending it to the Political Com-
mittee.
U Petitio

She also said Mrs. McCoy
threatened to put on her perman-
ent record that she was uncoop-
erative and intimated that it
might be used to her disadvantage
if she needed recommendations for
employment.
Thought Letter Unwise
Mrs. McCoy denied both state-
ments. The Stockwell house di-
rector said she advised Miss Grand
against writing the letter because
she thought it unwise.
Miss Grand said the dissension
on the Council was the result of
two factions, one favoring strict
interpretation of the rules, the
other favoring a more lenient in-
terpretation.
The 11-member Stockwell Judic
was called before Women's Judic
Nov. 6 to discuss lack of cohesive-
ness after a Women's Judic mem-
ber had observed a meeting.

Last Pocket
Of Workers
Holding Out
BUDAPEST .)P)-This nationct
10 million persons turned to an
almost complete general strike at
a weapon against the Russians
yesterday.
The only active resistance in
Budapest against Soviet arms was
reported on Csepel Island in the
Danube. There thousands of work-
ers have turned two factories into
armed fortresses.
With their armed revolt almost
crushed, workers turned to a wea-
pon long barred in the Communist
state - the general strike.
Transportation Crippled
The transport system was crip-
pled. Industries were closed down.
Thousands of citizens wandered
aimlessly around Budapest streets.
Many poked about in the ruins
of homes for lost possessions.
At most industrial plants work-
ers guarded gates' to prevent
strikebreakers from entering. So-
viet tanks and guns, at all impor-
tant intersections, got little atten-
tion.
Other Soviet tanks and guns
guarded the Parliament building
where the Janos Kadar govern-
ment-installed by Soviet military
might - was housed.
Parliament Mastered
Parliament appeared to be the
only place where the Kadar re-
gime was master of the situation.
Its radioed appeals for workers to
return to jobs went unheeded.
In government offices national-
ist-minded officials expressed the
view that Imre Nagy, the former
Premier displaced by .Kadar, was
the only man who could solve the
present situation.
Nagy and a group of his sup-
porters apparently remained in
refuge in the Yugoslav Embassy.
Rumors persisted that Nikita
Krushchev, the Soviet Communist
party boss, was here with other
top leaders trying to help the Ka-
dar regime.
One Weapon
The Kadar government had one
weapon that could break. the
strike - a threat to withhold pay.
Budapest radio broadcast the
threat throughout the day.
The people were turning from
fiery defiance to a more sullen
opposition.
The hatred of Russians re-
mained unchanged. But Budapest
residents, who a few . days ago
cheered every car with an Ameri-
can flag, were mostly indifferent
