WASHINGTON (Mar. 9)
The neo-Nazi National Socialist White People’s Party will seek court redress over the Arlington County School Board’s cancellation of its permit for a “white power” rally at Yorktown High School. The permit was revoked because Jews and Negroes were to be barred. The National Capital Area American Civil Liberties Union, while opposing a restrictive public meeting, announced it would sue on behalf of the party’s right to “hold a public meeting that is open to all or a private meeting for their own membership.” The party was said to be agreeable to those terms if the county would guarantee protection from disruption. Last Saturday night, subsequent to the cancellation, six members of the party were arrested while demonstrating at the home of Assistant School Superintendent Joseph L. Ringers, who had revoked the permit.
