Wins $2,000 Settlement in
Suit Over Bus Segregation
CHARLESTON, W. Va.-(ANP)—-Charlie B. Hauser,
instructor at West Vtrgnia Slate College, was awarded
$2,000 by the Atlantic Greyhound corporation in an out
of court settlement of his suit against the company for
false arre t and attempted segregation in interstate travel,
rie was represented by T. G. Nutter, Attorney.
While traveling from Winston-Salem, N. C\. li Charles
ton, W, Va„ on a WSnsion-Salem-Charleston bus, the col
lege professor was arrested Or 13, 1947 m Moutit Asry,
N. C.. for violating the slate jimcrOw laws. Bus driver
Charles Edds signed a warrant for his arrest alter Hauser
refused to move to the rear of the coach,
Xn the subsequent trial at the Mount Airy Recorder's
court Judge Harry Llewellyn dismissed the charge, saying
that Hauser's ticket showed that he was in interstate
travel and did rici violate the stale segregation law. He
based his decision On a recent U. S. Supreme court ruling.
Following this, the teacher sued the s»us company,
in settling the matter out of court the bus firm said the
driver had violated instructions in signing a warrant against
a passenger. Company representatives promised that like
incidents would not recur on their lines.
