24 DAILY PRESS, Newport News. Va., Thurs., April 23, 1959 Southwest Va. Integration Effort Due, Attorney Says ROANOKE, W) An effort to inteerate public schools in a south est Vireinia county will be launched soon, Roanoke Attorney Reuben Lawson said Wednesday. He said about 12 Negro fami lies would seek the transfer of their children from Negro to white school. But despite persist ent questioning, Lawson would not tell reporters the name of the county. "We're not in a position to give cut that information yet, ne said. One possibility is Pulaski Coun-tv. In September. 1956, Lawson mailed to the P u I a s k i County school board a petition from the parents of six Negro students seeking desegregation ot trie county's public schools. He said at the time he believed a desegregation suit would be filed if the petition was rejected. Frank Critzer, superintendent of Pulaski County schools, said he knew of no efforts to transfer. Negroes into white schools. In addition to Pulaski County, several other Southwest Virginia Counties have no high school for Negroes, placing them in a position of vulnerability similar to that of Warren County, where the white high school was ordered integrated last fall. Among those counties without a Negro High school are Carroll, Grayson, Lee and Craig. Lawson's refusal to name the county where the desegregation effort would be made apparently temmed from the fact that a special session of the legislature is still in the process of drawing up a new anu-iniegrauuu k yiv gram. , , Th Roanoke attorney, who has represented the National Assn. for the Advancement ot uiorea reo-ple in this area, did say he would proceed with plans for his clients right after "we see what the legis lature will do." Newsmen took this to mean Lawson's move could come early next week. Lawson wouldn't say how many children of school age were involved in the proposed desegregation move. He did say he represented perhaps 12 families. Questioned further. Lawson said he knew of no definite plans to seek enrollment of Negro children in white Roanoke public schools. But he said he had "been casually consulted by some colored parents about such a possibility." Should desegregation litigation be instituted by Lawson, it would be the first of its kind in southwest Virginia. New Missile Uses Outlined A new member of the Nike missile family will be made operational in the very near future, designed to seek out low flying enemy aircraft, the commander of the Peninsula's Army Nike units declared Wednesday night. The new missile, called the Hawk, will be used solely to intercept enemy planes at tree-top level and low flying planes that seep through Ajax and Hercules missiles radar systems, Lt. Col. Joseph E. Treadway, commander of the 4th Battalion, 51st Artillery, told members of the Peninsula Junior Chamber of Commerce at a dinner meeting at Hotel Warwick. Col. Treadway emphasized the Army's role in the nation's air defense and spoke briefly of the job of Nike missiles. He also reported that a Her- CauseSought In Richmond Island Blaze RICHMOND m Firemen Wednesday sought to determine the cause of a spectacular Tuesday night fire that caused an esti mated $500,000 damage on Belle Isle in the James River. Three of the Recony Corp.'s 12 major Duiiaings were involved in the fire. Two were leveled and a third was left with only its front portion standing. Recony is encaged primarily in the manufacture of components and assembly of trailer-mounted, 5,700-pound air conditioning units used In cooling jet aircraft on ine iuuuu. The fire was fed by 200 to 300 tires used on the trailers and by plastic ducts. Flames shot 100 feet into the air and black smoke was visible all over the city. The bridge that runs to the island has a 14,000-pound recommended load capacity. Firemen said that limit prevented use of the city's big pumpers in containing the blaze. By the time firemen arrived, the job at hand was one of containing the flames. Andrew J. Asch Jr., Recony president, emphasized that it was a "ball park estimate, but a half-million dollar damage figure is about as good as we can do pending further investigation." He said there was "ample" insurance coverage. ISLAND FIRE Smoke from a spectacular half million dollar fire on a James River island rose into the air Tuesday night as flames destroyed three buildings of a Richmond firm that makes refrigeration equipment. cules site will be placed in operation of this area "in the very, very near future." Col. Treadway said chances for an accidental nuclear detonation explosion at a Nike missile site are almost nonexistant and there is no danger from fallout. He stressed the use of safety devices in all nuclear warheads which prevent accidental explosions. A film on the Nike was shown to the Jaycees.
