Wants Day Law Test

To the Editor of The Courier-Journal:

The inability of Centre College and other Christian, institutions to perform their Christian duty toward all adherents of their faith should stir the religious
colleges of Kentucky to action. As The Courier-Journal so well pointed out in a recent editorial, the Day Law is outmoded and unjustified in this year of
our Lord 1948.
This situation is a challenge to some college in Kentucky to arrange with the Attorney General of the Commonwealth for a friendly suit to test the constitutionality of the Day Law in the Federal courts. The test case may be arranged by the admission, through agreement, of a person of African descent into some educational institution. The provisions of the Day Law could then be applied to the extent of fining the institution which could appeal the case to the Federal courts. This I believe is the most intelligent and economical approach to the problem.
