Catholics Integrate Schools LITTLE ROCK UP) — Catholic schools in Arkansas will be opened to Negro school children this fall, if the church has not provided other schools for them. Bishop Albert L. Fletcher of the Little Bock Diocese—which includes all of Arkansas—laid down the policy in a letter read Sunday in churches of the Diocese. Rev. John M. Bann, secretary to the Bishop, said however, "There are probably less than 500 Negro Catholics of "school age in the state. And where they are concentrated we have special schools for them." He said the Church had established seven grade schools and two high schools in Arkansas for Negro Catholics. Bishop Fletcher's letter took note of the U. S. Supreme Court's ruling against racial segregation in public schools and said: "Catholic schools are classified as private schools and, as such, are not subject to the Supreme Court decision. This being the case, same people have thought that Catholic Schools will choose to continue the practice of racial segregation. "This is a mistaken idea. It is contrary to the tradtitional practice of the Church."

A total of 31 candidates—24 Republicans and 7 Democrats — are entered in the Senate contests. The present Nebraska senators, serving by appointment, are not seeking election. The other Senate posts to be filled in November are for the last three months of Griswold's term and the remaining four years of Butler's term. Both parties also will name nominees for governor. Two of the state's four House members face primary fights. Balloting is expected to follow the pattern of previous years, with a turnout of up to 225,000 forecast by Secretary of State Frank Marsh. Light Vote Seen A light vote is predicted in Idaho, where Sen. Henry C. Dworshak did not campaign against his lone challenger in the Republican primary. Almost all the interest centers in the race for the Democratic Senate nomination. Entrants are Taylor, State Sen. Claude Burtenshaw, a college professor, and Alvin McCormack of Lewiston. Idaho's two House members are without primary opposition. In the governor races, three Republicans and four Democrats are entered. Gov. Cherry of Arkansas led three opponents in the Democratic primary July 27 but lacked a majority. His second term bid is challenged in the runoff by Orval Faubus, publisher of a weekly newspaper at Huntsville. In Delaware's Democratic convention, Frear is opposed for re- nomination to a second Senate Term by State Supreme Court Jus* tice James' M. Tunnell Jr. Supporters of Tunnell predicted victory today after one of the 60 delegates from Frear's home county announced he'd vote for Tunnell. The challenger is endorsed by the state CIO and AFL.

And that's only the beginning, say electric power companies and manufacturers, as the combination of American inventiveness and plenty of low-priced electricity expand the Electric Age. U. S. families are using twice as much electricity as they did in 1946—yet there's more than enough of it. That's because the electric light and power companies plan and build years ahead to have additional power ready when you want it. With hundreds of new power plants, they've doubled their output since the war, and plan to have 50% more by 1960. In spite of this abundance, some people want government to create more unnecessary public debt by building new government power projects. The country's growing appetite for electricity has been supplied, and can be supplied in the future, by electric light and power companies like this one.
