(AP) -All :165 pupils in U.S. Grant elementary school are Negro. The federal Office of Education says it constitutes illegal segregation. The Ferndale School District, the first in thc North to he threatened with loss of federal funds, agrees that it's segregation, but denies it's illegal. The Office of Education issued an order Tuesday designed to force thc integration of Grant upils w i t h about -1.100 children n nine other district elementary chools. "We know there's scgrega- ion." Supt. John J. Houfihton aid. "but it's of a de facto na- ure. The school was built to nect an existing need and the population pattern t h a t developed around it resulted in the act that it is completely Negro ,oday." Leon E. Panctta. director of the Office of Education's civil rights office, said the segregation of Negro pupils in Grant started when the school was I built in 1926 as a deliberate effort to establish and maintain a discriminatory policy. ONLY AREA The school is in Royal Oak Township. Aside from a small portion of Ferndale, it is the only area in the school district with a large concentration of Negroes. The district--comprised of most of the city of Ferndale, Royal Oak. and parts of two ad- iacent cities--has a total of 8.1 iD students. 740 of them Negro. Houghton said one other elementary school has 27 Negro pupils, and two others have one Negro pupil each. The remainder of the Negro pupils in the district attend the junior high school and the senior high school. _ Burton Shifman, attorney for the district's school board, will icet with federal officials Monay to discuss the case. "We have very little disagree nent with the facts as the gov- rnment presented them, he aid "We do disagree with the onclusion that the situation is eliberate." litlilil'niil t«|IHt iinrllHI t Your Wedding £ TUXEDO T Fothion Renti 402 W. nickson 442-5611 Special Selling - 3 DAYS ONLY - -' r?
