Solomon said his daughter had been a second grader at the school since September. The board or dered the child removed from school last Wednesday. State law require children tc be six years old on or before Jan uary 1, to enter the first grade at the opening of school. The child became six on January 25. Judge L. E. Thomas, w r ho rep resented Solomon in the case said the father had informed the school principal of the child’s age at the time of her enrollment. It was agreed, he added, that the child would be given an examination and if she passed it, would be placed in the second grade. The child passed the examination successfully ar.d was enrolled. In handing down his decision, Judge Crawford said that the board, itself, had erred in enroll ing the child in school before reached the age requirement.

The order was a direct reversal of an earlier ruling of the court, in w r hich the convictions w r ere upheld. The court threw out the con victions because Judge Ben C. Willlard of criminal court allow ed it to be mentioned during the trial that Newbold, the victim of a gangster-style “ride” had taken a lie detector test. Although no effect was made to introduce the results of the test, the fact that it was men tioned would have impressed the jury, according to the high court.

He amazed doctors by surviv ing and named Kav and Isaac, organizers for the laundry work ers’ union, as his assailants. The pair were convicted in criminal court on September 20, 1951.

The State Supreme court overruled the 1 ‘assault by leer" conviction of ; sharecropper Mack Ingram Wed nesday by deciding that he could not be convicted of a criminal offense “solely for what may have been in his mind." In effect, the high court ruled that the old statute under which Ingram was convicted of assault by frightening a teen-aged white girl is too vague to be valid. The decision gave Ingram his freedom. He cannot be brought to trial again on the same charge. Ingram has spent little time in jail while the case moved through the courts. ‘‘The facts inevidence in the c;se at bar are insufficient to make out a case of assault,” the unanimous decision said.
