in the widely-discussed segrega-
tion issue, the bill will also bring
out the various points that have
arisen concerning the subject, a Phi
spokesman said. It is specifically
stated in the bill that discrimina
tion does not exist when there are
equal facilities for both elements,
and that segregation in itself is
not bad- Bather discrimination is
evil that must be stamped out, ac
cording to the bill ,
The argumeents for and aginst
the bill are expected to stem
from the Fourteenth Amendment,
which says that no state shall
"deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection
of the laws." Working from this
clause, the Supreme Court is now
faced with rendering a decision
on the issue.
Syd Shuford, speaker pro-tem-pore,
emphasized the fact that a
decision reached in the debate does
not necessarily reflect the opinion
of a majority of the members of
the Phi Assembly or of any one
'The Phi has as its major pur
poses the development of the abili
ty of its members in public speak
ing, and the stimulation of interest
in current affairs; not the making
of decisions which could be con
sidered as binding opinions of the
organization," said Shuford. "The
decision rendered tonight could
quite conceivably be made on the
quality of the debate; and as a
matter of fact, many of the deci
sions are," he explained.
" All persons interested in the
segregation subject are invited to
attend the meeting and to partici
pate in the debate. The initiation
will be hid in an executive session
immediately following the debate.
