DICKINSON Double School Standard SINCE THE enactment of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the federal government has given primary emphasis to enforcing its school desegregation edicts in the Southern states while virtually ignoring the rest of the nation. This double-standard comes as no surprise to the people of the Southl Unfortu- nately, it is typical of the puni- tive laws we've been forced to swallow since the lAth Amend- ment was added to the Constl- tutiou 100 years ago. Nevertheless, the old adage that 'what's good for the goose is good for the gander' Just might finally be comingtopass. It's tn the form of pressure being applied on the Depart= merit of Health, Education and Welfare by many of us to start investigating the school situa- tion in states outside the South. In other words, we want HEWto start looking northward where for years well-meaniug citi- zens, I am sure, have lived smugly in conditions of total racial segregation while hurling bolts of self-righteous criti- cism at their Southern neigh- bors who, waits frankly, lived in a more integrated society. We think we've got a good argument. According to statis- tics provided by, of all places, HEW, 90 percent of all Negro school children outside the South are concentrated in eight heavily populated states and the District of Columbia, where they attend predominantly Negro schools in city school districts. This is called 'racial isola- tion' by the HEW 'experts', and it simply means that black and white students attend separate schools through social or eco- nomic circumstance, such as tion Northern stylel But this hyprocrisy may soon be coming to an end. In fact it is report- ed that over 500 Northern school districts have been targeted as possible problem areas for future HEW investigations. Ot course, as any school ad- minlatrator and parent in the c~mtry will say, the best method of achieving school de- segregation - North and South- in line with the 1964 Civil Rights Act is by freedom of choice. But the bureaucrats in HEW abhor the edea of freedom of choice. Nothing could be fairer than freedom of choice, for that is Just what it is. It is the free- dom of every school child, black or white, to choose the school of his or her choice, rather than have the government compel him to attend a distant school purely for arbitrary sociological reasons. Even Se- cretary Finch should agreewith that. President Nixon's nomination of U. S. Circuit Court of Ap- peals Judge G. Harrold Cars- wet1, of Tallahassee, Florida, to the U. S. Supreme Court has been applauded by most of the fair-minded people who re- present the majority of the American public. However, politicians who oppose the Ad- ministration are speaking against Judge Carswell out of fear that the nominee re- presents some cryptic ',South- ern strategy."

It seems that the liberals who supported former Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas are the same ones who set out to destroy the reputation of Judge Clement Haynsworth. Now these same liberals who disagree with Judge Carsweil's philosophy and the principle that the mem- bers of the Supreme Court should be strict construction- ists of the Constitution are look- ing for any imagined link in his background that they can magnify into an issue. When asked before the Senate Judiciary Committee to define the phrase "strict construc- tionist", Judge CareweU said: 'q)espite a definite and inevit- able element of law-making within judicial power, the Su- preme Court should notbecome a continuing constitutional con- vention." A survey of Judge Carsweil's opinions during his years on the federal bench- since 1958 - reveals a man who fits President Nixon's pre- scription of "strict construc- tionist" - a man who interprets the Constitution but does not make law from the bench. Judge Carswell is eminent- ly qualified to serve as a jus- tice of the Supreme Court, de- spite what his detractors may say. We are going to fight the liberals who oppose him for the Supreme Court has been shaped in their image far too long now. President Nixon is clearly keeping his campaign promise to re-shape the Supreme Court. I supported his appointment of Chief Justice Burger, the ap- pointment of Judge Haynsworth, and the appointment of Judge Carswell, as I mentioned, meets with mywhole-hearted approval I believe Judge Carswell will be confirmed after a battle in the Senate. The two Nixon ap- pointees to the Court, Chief Justice Burger and Carsweil, will be hailed by those who favor a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Rather than make the law - as the warren Court did - the constitution will be read for what it says instead of for what one thinks it should say. Perhaps, in the future, we can all be more comfortable with the interpre- tation of this great document.
