Pamela Weston, who just completed the tenth grade of a private school near Augusta, was dissatisfied with her pre vious nl?ebra and want ed to repeat the courses in hopes of doing better. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the Richmond County School Board to allow the girl to "enroll in such courses in Algebra I and Alge bra II as are now being offered to white students." The Court granted the appeal of Legal Defense Fund Attor neys John H. Ruffin Jr. of Au eusta, Donald L. Hollowell of Atlanta and Jack Greenberg and Derrick A. Bell Jr. of New York, who for more than a vear have been waging a court battle to integrate the county's school system. The Legl Defense Fund law vers appealed a decision by the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia •vhich refused to grant a pre liminary injunction to prevent the school board from closing the course in white schools to the girl. Miss Weston had enrolled in summer algebra courses at all Negro Lucy C. Laney High School in Augusta, but the courses were dropped from the curriculum there when she turned out to be the only en rollee. When she sought to transfer to sessions in a white school, officials told her she would have to hire a private tu tor because the county's deseg regation plan did not apply to summer sessions or to the 11th grade. The school system desegre gated grades four, five, six and twelve during the past school year. J9 MRS. MILVIN C. SWANM Director, Y. D. P. the church. Dr. G.
