Transcript r v * m MKs.\\\\\\\\WWWm 2 ■ ■^3 ATTORNEY GENERAL BROWNE! 1 ■■■- i laets .©rum The Honorable Herbert Brownell, Jr. ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES is asked . . . • What is your responsibility in implementing the segregation decision? • Were Republican chances in the South hurt through briefs your office filed in support of desegregation. • Do you take the position that it is within the right of the Executive branch to classify anything it wishes os confidential? President Eisenhower's statement in a September press conference that when the courts call "properly" on the Attorney-General in segregation troubles "he will assist in every way possible," formed the central point of discussion in a recent Reporters' Roundup interview of Attornev-General Herbert Brown- P ell, Jr. i Mr. Brownell, considered one of the K Administration's key spokesmen, served as chairman of the Republican Ijj National Committee from 1944 to 1946. Born in Nebraska in 1904, he was graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1924, and from Yale Law School in 1927. Entering the practice of law following graduation, he was elected to the New York State Legisla- h tore five times from 1932, et seq. The Attorney-General is a member of the American Bar Association and the bar LR associations of New York State and the City of New York. Interviewing this prominent guest, under the moderation of Mr. Robert F. Hurleigh, veteran commentator of the Mutual Broadcasting System, were Mr. Clark Mollenhoff of the Washington Bureau of Look magazine and Cowles newspapers, and Mr. Arthur Sylvester of the Newark News. Mr. Sylvester, opening the questioning, referred to President Eisenhow- Page 12 er's press-conference statement that if and when the time comes when the segregation of any district court must be implemented, it would be more or less the responsibility of the Attorney- General, working with the U. S. marshals, and asked if Mr. Brownell would outline the procedure which would be followed. "Well, let me start this way, Mr. Sylvester," replied Mr. Brownell: "At the present time we have one case in court in which the Department of Justice is appearing as 'friend of the court,' involving the action that was taken by the Hoxie, Arkansas, Board of Education, to integrate the grade schools there. The Board of Education acted to comply with the Supreme Court opinion and then, as alleged in our brief, outsiders came in and disrupted the orderly handling of the local situation. As a result, the Board of Education obtained an injunction from the Federal Court there to allow them to go ahead in an orderly way and conduct an integrated school. "The .court granted that request," he continued, "and an appeal has been taken to the Court of Appeals. We are appearing there to support the courageous action taken by the local board of education to operate the schools." Mr. Brownell pointed out that in due course the Federal Court of Ap peals will decide whether the action taken was proper and effective 'n supporting the school board, and expressed the opinion that this case may establish a pattern for other parts ot the country where the school boards take similar action. As a result, he felt the action taken by the Federal Colin of Appeals would be watched with great interest. "This is the only case of its kind that I know of that is in the federal courts at the present time," he concluded. "The President indicated that what will happen," stressed Mr. Sylvester, "will be that a court will find someone in contempt and that that person ot persons will be cited, following which action will be taken through the U. 5. marshals. As I understand it, Mr- Brownell, the U. S. marshals are i° your department, and are, as a matter of fact, responsible to you?" "Yes," replied the Attorney-General, "they are responsible primarily to the courts, of course, for the enforccmen of the court orders." "Well, then, how do you implement it?" inquired Mr. Sylvester. "How a° you plan that the U. S. marshals wi" carry out a court decision on tha assumption?" Mr. Brownell opined that this was getting into the speculative realm, ancj (Continued on page S3) Facts Forum News, December, 195"
