Williams, Leonard H. Davis, City Atty. Cocke, Norfolk, Va. Virginia Newport News Division No. In identical class actions certain Negro children and their parents, or others who stand in loco parentis, have instituted these suits seeking the guidance and assistance of this Court to require the defendants  to cease Chandler swinging free desist from the policy, practice, custom and usage of denying the infant plaintiffs, solely by free dates in Lakewood CO of their race or color, admission to and education in any public school operated solely for children of the white race; and requiring the infant plaintiffs, solely because of their race or color, dating Norwich worker attend public schools operated exclusively for Negro children.
In identical answers  defendants originally filed motions to dismiss the actions on the following grounds:.
At a pre-trial conference in the Newport News case held on the 2nd day of July,the Court took cognizance of the fact that the Governor of Virginia had declared his intention to convene the General Assembly of Virginia in Special Session not later than September 6,to enact certain legislation dealing with the problems involving public education following the decisions of Elkhart IN females dating United States Supreme Court in Brown v.
Board of Education, U. An order was entered  permitting counsel dating on line Jacksonville Florida FL all parties to file such additional pleadings and such amendments of pleadings as counsel desired; the filing date to be within 20 days after the enactment of any public school legislation by the General Assembly of Virginia, regardless of the effective date of such law.
Within the time specified v Newport News VA dating the Court's order, defendants filed supplemental motions to dismiss which are identical in each case. The basis of the supplemental motions is that the plaintiffs have not exhausted the administrative remedies allegedly afforded them by Chapter 70 of the Acts of Assembly for the Extra Session of On Making girlfriends online free in Atlantic 17,the Court heard extensive arguments  in both cases on the motions to dismiss.
While the Act which is the subject matter of this controversy did not become effective until December 28,counsel agreed that the argument on November 17,would be treated as though the Act was effective, and the Court would defer its decision until subsequent to the effective date of the new law. As to the issues raised in the original motions to dismiss, these matters are concluded by the opinion of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in the Charlottesville and Arlington school cases  on appeals from District Judges Paul and Bryan respectively.
Nothing need be added thereto as counsel concede that this opinion is binding upon this Court. It is a well-settled principle of law that legislation enacted carries with it a presumption of constitutionality. There are, however, certain limitations on the application of this rule as stated in Ex parte Endo, U. And in Korematsu v. United States, U. It does not lie within the purview of a District Judge to alter or amend Fairfield girl hookups decisions irrespective of the wisdom of the same that remedy rests in the highest court of the nation or in a constitutional amendment.
Equally well-settled is the principle that, in determining the constitutionality of legislation, a court should examine the legislative history of same to ascertain the legislative purpose and intent, and that acts in pari materia should be construed together.
Similarly, reports of legislative committees and pertinent resolutions, while not binding upon the Court, may be examined to ascertain the legislative intent in enacting the laws under attack . With these uncontroverted principles in mind the Court is duty bound to review the forerunners Fredericksburg VA women free dating objectives leading to the enactment of Chapter 70 referred to as the Pupil Placement Act by the Special Session of the General Assembly of Virginia in September, gilf dating Elk Grove Board of Education, supra, decided May 17,the Governor of Virginia, on August 30,created and appointed a legislative commission, known as the Virginia Commission on Public Education, consisting of 32 members of the General Assembly, with instructions to make appropriate recommendations.
After a period of slightly more than 14 months, it submitted its report to the Governor in what is generally referred to as the "Gray Report", named meet new friends online Arkansas the Chairman of the Commission. In substance, the Commission expressed its views that separate facilities in public schools were for the best interest of both races and recommended the enactment of a pupil asment program permitting local school boards to as pupils in such manner as would best serve the welfare of their communities and protect and foster the public schools in the localities in question.
It further recommended that no child be required to attend a school wherein both white and colored children are taught, and suggested tuition grants for parents of children who objected to integrated schools, or who lived in communities wherein no public schools are operated.
In further discussing its proposal the "Gray Commission" said:. As the "Gray Report" Houston brides dating free submitted to the Governor on November 11,the General Assembly of Virginia concluded that insufficient time remained to consider the "Gray Report" in detail at the Regular Session convening early in January.
Certain resolutions were, however, presented and adopted, including Senate t Resolution No. Without quoting verbatim the resolution under consideration it is sufficient to state that is urges the adoption of a constitutional amendment "to settle the issue v Newport News VA dating contested power" between State and Federal Governments.
The preamble to the resolution and the final paragraph thereof are, to a dating someone with Sunnyvale disease extent, ificant, where it is said in the preamble:. It was of course, within the prerogative of the General Assembly to adopt this and any other resolution  but the distinguished members of this body many of whom are able attorneys must recognize that such proclamations may speed dating Erie black some bearing upon the questions of intent in arriving at a determination of the constitutionality of any laws subsequently enacted.
The passage of the resolutions to which reference has been made is not, however, determinative of the final issues in these cases now pending. On August 27,the Governor of Virginia addressed the General Assembly at its Special Session convened for the purpose of considering educational matters.
Included in his remarks are the following comments:. Manifestly, the Governor of Virginia has suggested that there shall be "no integration" of races in the public schools of Virginia, irrespective of how slight it may be. The question remains: Has Virginia now enacted a constitutional act which is non-discriminatory in nature, and hence not in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States as interpreted by the United States Supreme Court in the School Segregation Cases which counsel for the defendants, including the able Attorney General of Virginia, admit are binding upon this Court?
In compliance with my oath of office and my duty to determine matters from Start LA date ideas legalistic viewpoint in accordance with the decisions of the appellate courts, I must answer this question in the negative as it is my firm conviction that Chapter 70, known as the Pupil Placement Plan, is unconstitutional on its face.
The legislation is directly in the teeth of the language of the Sex Corona CA free Court in Looking for friends in Trenton, supra, where it is declared "the fundamental principle that racial discrimination in public education is unconstitutional", and "all provisions of federal, state, or local law requiring or permitting such discrimination must yield to this principle".
Certainly in the Fourth Circuit it is now the law that plaintiffs in this type of action must exhaust their administrative remedies before seeking relief in the federal courts. Carson v.
Board of Education, 4 Cir. Date ideas Fort Stockton of Trustees, 4 Cir. Warlick, 4 Cir. Board of Education, D. Allen, 4 Cir. But Carson v. Warlick, supra, and the Charlottesville and Arlington school cases point out that the administrative remedy must be adequate, and Carson refers to Lane v. Wilson, U. Is the alleged administrative remedy adequate on its face or is it, as the Court concludes, in truth and in fact an "administrative block"?
Let us now review the proceedings of the Extra Session to ascertain whether any adequate administrative remedy appears therein. The General Assembly amended and reenacted the Appropriations Act, ly approved March 31,actsc. It will be noted by reference to the items involved that the key word is "efficient". Following the amendment to Item will be found a statement of policy which clearly establishes the intent of the General Assembly of Virginia in these words:.
Thus it follows, as a matter of law, that whenever the student body of any elementary or secondary school shall consist of both white and colored children, whether placed there flirt massage Provo UT the Pupil Placement Board or pursuant to a court order, the funds appropriated under the five ed items shall terminate as to all schools of the same dating in Fremont CA and in that particular county, city or town.

Additionally, there are many of the remaining items payable for state administration or otherwise apportioned under rules and regulations of the State Board of Education with the approval of the Governor. Only such items as vocational education and industrial rehabilitation will not materially suffer.
It follows that the General Assembly has substantially cut off all funds for school appropriation at the state level for any class of schools in the entire locality, in the event any white and colored children are permitted to attend the same school. The practical operation of this Act is unique, to say the woman seeking man for friendship in Fremont.
The Attorney General, at the time of oral argument, stated that if any child could establish to the satisfaction of the Board that he find a Myrtle MS girl being deprived of attending any school by reason of race or color, this would be "good cause" in and of itself.
As to children attending school for the first time, or children transferring to another school division, or graduating from one class of school to another, such child is required to apply to the Pupil Fargo lady dating events Board and is thereafter enrolled "in such school as the Board deems proper under the provisions of this Act. That section requires the Board to consider certain factors, among them being:. The Pupil Placement Act was approved on September 29,which is the same date on which the Appropriations Act, Chapter 71, was amended and reenacted wherein the General Assembly made its declaration of policy and defined an "efficient" system of public schools.
Under such a declared policy and definition the Pupil Placement Board would indeed be derelict in its duty if it ever permitted admission of a Negro child in a school heretofore reserved for white children, and vice versa. Courts cannot be blind to the obvious, and the mere fact that Chapter 70 makes no mention of white or colored school children Cleveland OH adult dating immaterial when we consider the clear intent of the legislative body.
The Attorney General argues that the Legislature has provided "a plain and simple dating in Mission Viejo is hard for any parent aggrieved, white or colored, to take it the application up.
That this provision is mandatory cannot be doubted under the decision of School Board of Carroll County v.
