Washington, June21.^The su preme court, in what is consider ed one of the most important race decisions in history, today an nuled as unconstitutional the Ok lahoma constitutional amendment and the Annapolis, Md., voters' qualification law restricting the suffrage rights of those who could not vote or whose ancest ors could not vote prior to the ratification of the fifteenth amendment to the federal con s i tu ti on. Chief Justice White, a native of tfie South and a former Con federate soldier, announced the court's decision, which was un amious. except that Justice Mc Rey ni ld took no part in case. By holding that conditions that existed before the fifteenth am endment* which provides that the right to vote shall no: be denied or abridge on account of race, color or previous condition of sarvitude, could not be brought over to the present day in disregard of this self exe cuting amendment, It is general ly believed that the court went a long way toward invali dating much of the socalled grand-father clause? ? lu con stations of Southern states. FROM SMALL BASIS. The immediate effect of the court, s decision was to uphold the conviction of two Oklahoma election officials who denied Ne groes the right to vote in a con . gressional -election, ancLto* award from election officials ih--?pna? polib who refused to registei them. The court held that Oki* norna ?lection officials could coi ignore the fifteenth amendment in wiping Out of state constutiqnf the word "white" as a cualifica tion for voting. In the ? Marjf; land case, the court's decision:es tablished the point that the flf teenth amendment , applies tx municipal as well as to f?d?ra! elections. ...... i i . Discussing the Oklahoma case Chief Justice White said the sui ferage amendment to the stat constitution first fixed a literac; standard, and then followed i with a provision creating a stand ard based upon the condition ex i sting on January 1, 1866, prio to the adoption of the flfteent amendment, and eliminate those coming under that stand ard from the inclusion in th literacy test. The court held that this actioi recreated and perpetuated th very conditions which the iii teenth amendment was intende to destroy. "It is true," continued th chief, "that it contains no ei press word of an exclusion c any peoson on account of rac< color, or previous condition ( servitude, but the standard 1 self inherently brings thatn suit into existence. "In other words, we seek i vain for any ground whic would sustain any other interpr tation but that the provision, r curring to the conditions exis mg bof ore the fifteenth am em ment was adopte^<^oppsed .1 makethemthe uasis of the ri#i to suffrage. And the same resul we are of the opinion, is demo stratediW consideration wheth it is possible to discover any ba is br reason for the stand ai thus'fixed, other tftan the pu "ose above stated. " ' MANY BECOME POSITIVE, he chief justice had. prdtec* state by a deyeippement argument that the restrictu ?s?d bydhe fifteenth5 am?n iv the power bf W? stat ?as'?'rtih?.ident wi power itself. ? jtjiei'principle th ue~sense the il ment -, gives i iffrage/y "it w fon g Jj l?femzed that in ope ibition mig 0 crimination against which it was aimed, the result might arise that as a cones quence of the striking down of a discriminating cause a right of suffrage would be enjoy ed by reason of the generic char acter of the provision which would remain after the discrim ination was stricken out." NOTES FROMMTE GOLLEGE. State Teachers Association and State Farmers to meet at College during Summer Session. _ m Orangeburg, June 22,- Each ?M day brings letters of inquiry about . rooms and accommodations at : ' the Summer School, which wilj$ : open Monday June 28.
