Drop in Number of Decisions
Noted
The study reported that few
er cases involving the Bill of
Fights were decided during the
last term than in the previous
year, reflecting a decrease from
120 to 101 in the total numbe
of opinions written by the court.
This was attributed to the fact
that Justice Felix Frankfurter
became disabled and did not
participate in any decisions f >r
a substantial part of the term
and Justice Charles Whittaker
retired on April 1; well before
the end of the term.
Thirteen cases were take’
the calendar and postponed for
disposition during the term ’ e
ginning Monday (October 1). it
was reported. Of these, nine
were in the field of civil rights
and civil liberties.
‘Ground-Breaking.’ Decisions
Noted
Of the 22 cases decided favor
ably, at “least two were of ma
jor importance in breaking new
ground in the application of bas
ic constitutional doctrines,’’ the
survey found, adding:
“One of these—Baker v. Carr
—may in the long run mat^h in
significance the Supreme Court’s
1954 decision in the racial school
segregation cases.” In this case,
the court held that federal
courts have the power to hear
and redress claims that arb.: •
trary apportionment of legisla
tive districts constitutes a de
nial of equal protection of thu
laws.
The other significant deci
sion, the study said, was in the
case of Engel v. Vitale, in which
the Supreme Court held that the

a public school violated the
clause in the Constitution pro
hibiting laws respecting an es
tablishment of religion. This rul
ing, the AJ Congress said, “was
the logical application of prin
ciples clearly set forth in ear
lier Supreme Court decisions
barring governmental aid to any
or all religions.”
The high court’s rulings in
sit-in and Freedom Rider cases
were another highlight of the
term. These decisions, the A
merican Jewish Congress study
asstered, “made . . . clear that
all state segregation laws are
unconstitutional and that per
sons may not be punished for
defying practices and customs
of segregation.”
‘Polarity’ of Court Less Clear
The analysis noted that the
“polarity of the court which has
been a striking feature of the
last few years” continued dur
ing the 1&61-62 term “but in
less clear ontline.” This .was
due the reports said, in part to
the higher proportion of deci
sions favorable to civil liberties
claims and in part to the fact
that an unusually large number
of the cases—20 of the 28 cov
ered in the report — were de
cided by less than nine justices,
the result of the retirement of
Justice Whittaker and the ab
sence of Justice Frankfurter.
“Chief Justice Warren and
Justices Black, Douglas and
Brennan continued to vote in a
manner that justified character
izing them as a liberal bloc, ac
cording to the study. Justices
Frankfurter, Clark, Harlan,
Stewart and Whittaker, it said,
“continued to appear as a con
servative bloc.”
Justices’ Voting Records
Analyzed
Tn a table, the American Jew
ish Congress study listed the
justices’ opinions according to
whether they were favorable or
unfavorable to the individual as
serting a constitutional or civil
right. This method was adopted
in preparing the survey, it wus
explained, as a relatively objec
tive method of classification.
There was no assumption that
the person claiming the right
was necessarily justified in do
ing so.
In the 28 cases analyzed in
the report, according to the tal
ly, Chief Justice Earl Warren
and Justice William 0. Douglas
handed down the most opinions
favorable to the assertion of the
right—26— with only 2 unfa
vorable. In descending order,
the study listed Justice Hugo L.
Black (25 favorable, 2 unfavor
able); Justice William Brennan
(24 and 4); Justice Potter Stew
art (20 and 8), Justice John
Harlan (13 and 14); and Justice
Tom Clark (12 and 16).
Justice Frankfurter partici
pated in twelve of the decisions
analyzed in the report (7 and
5); Justice Whittaker in eight
(5 and 3); and Justice White
in three (2 and 1).

i Negro officials who heads up
the Negro Division of the Mis
sissippi State Fair Association,
in noting some efforts in op
lposition to the Negro State
Fair, pointed out last week
that the Negro State Fair is in
no ways involved in the cur
rent Ole Miss crisis. It was
pointed out that for the past
fifty years, Negroes in Missis
sippi have had their own State
Fair which was taken over
largely by the state association
because of the fact that the
increasing cost had made it
practically impossible for the
Negro group to operate with
out assistance from the State.
He said that with or without in
tergration the Mississippi Ne
gro State Fair would last as
long as the Negro citizens of
the State continued to value
their own products and ac
complishments, and the real
purpose of the Fair.

World’s greatest carnival at

There is also the Harlem Re

of the great entertainments for
local fair goers. In the Revue
there is Doris Youngs, talented
songstress, Shirley Wright,
“peaches” Slayden, and Eames

The Honorable Karegesa ap
pealed to the American Negro
for moral support and their
prayers during this period of
transition. He also reminded
them of the ties that they have
with the African nations.
“Uganda will get its inde
pendence Tuesday (October 9)
and we will need your moral and
spiritual support,” he said. ,
The theme for the month was
‘Emergent Africa: A Continent
in Transition.” An exhibition on
“Tropical Africa: An Explosion
in the Future” was on exhibit
in the lobby of Perry-Paige dur
ing the entire month.
The audience saw Africa
through many eyes during an
audiovisual experience. Some of
the eyes were those of Dr. and
Mrs. S. Randolph Edmonds, Dr.
William Howard, and Dr. C. B.
Owens, all members of the FA
MU faculty who have visited the
continent.
Brief remarks were made on
the customs and culture of the
African by John Makuku and
Stainislanaa Unoessien, both na
tive* of Africa and PAMU stu
dent*. Dr. Sylvia Render review
ed Kimble's book. Tropical Af
rica.
Dr. Howard climaxed the
month-long activities with a
vesper message on “Africa and
its Rise to Freedom.”
According to Dr. Howard, “Af
ricans are determined to wipe
out all vestiges of past humilia
tion, to assert the dignity of Af
ricans, project the African per
sonality, and to make persons
of African descent proud of the
glorious African revolution and
its fruits.”
