Va., March 17 a date marked on
many calendars as St. Patrick's
The circuit court will be asked

J. Hayes, upholding the Univers
Judge Hayes ruled that facili
ties available at North Carolina
College, a Negro institution at
Durham, were equal to, and in
some ways better, than facilities
available at Chapel Hill.
The judge pointed out that the
law school at Durham had an
"excellent" faculty and adequate
library, and more space per stu
dent than tne Chapel Hill school.
He held, too, that the cultural
advantages and prestige of the
( University were negligible.
The suit originally was filed by
two North Carolina College stu
dentsHarold T. Epps and Robert
Carter. Both have withdrawn-
Epps, because he graduated and
is now practicing law, and Carter
because he is not a legal resident
of North Carolina. . -: ,
