"The acquittal this week of eight white men in the case nf the beating, chasing, and in timidation of Negro school children at Grenada, Mississip pi. last fall defies rational ex planation. "The whole world witnessed or heard of these barbarous acts, which were condoned by hold the law. Now an all-white iury adds its approval of this monumental inhumanity. Now we are asked to believe that it just wasn't so. In effect, we are told that the reign of terror against Negroes in Mississippi enjoys the protection of the law.

Clark who wound up 18 years of service as a member of the nation's highest tribunal. The appointment of Marshall came a day after the close of the court's term on June 12 and was the second Supreme Court appointment of the John son administration. Announcement of the ap pointment was made at noon in the White House Rose Garden. The President escorted Mar shall to the place for a meet ing with the press where he told those members present the appointment of Marshall was "the right thing, the right time, the right man, and the right place." It was evident to all present that in naming Marshall to the post the President and other high government officials had taken into consideration the appointee's long year's of ex perience in the struggle for social justice through th e courts. Prior to his appointment to the federal bench and to the office of Solicitor General Marshall had served as general counsel for the NAACP and the Legal Defense Fund. In that office he was the winner again and again of civil rights cases, foremost of which was that of the 1954 school segregation case. As praise of the President's appointment poured in from over the nation there was quiet on the front of the Deep South. Marshall is the first of his race ever to be named to the U.S. Supreme Court and it is predicted that because of his years of legal experience, espe cially in the field of civil rights, he will add strength to the liberal wing of the highest court of the nation.
