NEW ORLEANS — Ralph Dupas,
nationally known New Orleaua boxer,
has lost another round in his fight
to have this city issue him a delayed
birth certificate, showing him to be
a member of the Caucasian race.
The supreme court of Louisiana re-

court of appeals which had reversed
a lower court ruling that had, in ef-

The latest decision hinged heavily
on the question of the place of birth
of the i>l;iiMtiff, who had filed suit
against the city of New Orleans for
the birth certificate, contending he
