the public schools of Chicago.

C. Willis, filed an affidavit in
United States District Court re

order that would compel schools
to accept students who live in
districts served by other schools.
The suit on behalf of parents
of thirty-two children from five
public- schools was filed Sept.
18 by Paul Zuber, a Chicago
lawyer.
Mr. Willis rejected the pre
mise that Chicago school author

some schools had predominantly
Negro enrollments.
The superintendent’s reply was
accompanied by data and showed
unequivocally that there was no
segregation in the school system.
