For weeks Houston schools have
teen in a squeeze between a fed-
eral court order to begin gr:>lual
integration and a state law which
■ a\s it will lose state aid if it does.
A- a last resort, the Houston
St lux.I Board asked Governor Dan-
iel to "inletpose" in its behalf.
I nder the theory of interposition,
the state has, under the Tenth
Amendment to the U.S. Constitu-
te n the right to interpose against
jn\- ltderal act by which it believes
the It-dei al government is exceed-
ing its eiinstituiional powers.
Daniel pointed out that this
