ABSTRACT
The article comments on a decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding a Negro school in Mississippi. The Supreme Court clearly granted wide discretion to the federal district courts which are charged with overseeing compliance by local school boards. The district courts are that their job is to require school authorities to make a prompt and reasonable start toward integration. A good many newspapers also contributed editorially to this image of the kindly, goateed judge winking sympathetically at the delinquencies of his fellow white Southerners.
