Arguments In
School Cases
Are Scheduled

colored passengers to travel
in separate “jim crow” coa
ches as a result of Supreme
Court action today.
The high bench rejected an ap
peal from a lower court ruling that
separation of white and colored pas
sengers is an unconstitutional bur
den on interstate commerce.
The issue was appealed by the
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. The
court acted in a brief order, with
no opinion. ,
Segregation of coach passengers
is general in Southern states, the
principal exception being North-
South through trains.
Despite today’s action. Negro
leaders said they do not look for
immediate abandonment of sea ne
gation on tr»s. It was felt that
complete extiaption of the “Jim
Crow" car is some years, and sev
eral lawsuits, distant.
The ruling would presumably have
a bearing on bus transportation,
too. It was pointed out that seg
regation on buses has caused more
dietuifcanees than have rail oad
segregation rules.
Today’s case, which is on its
second round through federal
courts, was started by William C.
Chance, 65. Parmelee, N. C., a Negro
school principal. It is one of a
long series supported by the Na
tional Association for the Adance
ment of Colored People in its fight
to abolish segregation in trans
portation and other areas of living.
The Supreme Court has already
agreed to hear arguments next
month in four cases testing segre
gation in public schools.

1948. when he refused to qhange
