Board Ordered To Answer In Teacher Firing The Calcasieii Parish School Board must answer question asked them by a Lake Charles attorney in connection with the firing of Joseph Moffett, a Negro band teacher who was dismissed for "negligence and incompetence." Moffett, dismissed by the board after a hearing held to investigate his alleged cursing of the woman principal of Washington High School, through his Orbit Attempt For Unmanned Apollo Rubbed CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) —The first attempt to orbit an unmanned model of the Apollo moonship was postponed today to Thursday because of a frozen nitrogen valve in the ground support equipment. The trouble occurred after the countdown on the giant Saturn I booster rocket had advanced to within an hour and 55 minutes of the scheduled launching time. After wrestling unsuccessfully with the problem for nearly three hours, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration called off the shot for two days. The time is required to replace the faulty valve and check out the new system. The valve is part of a system which pumps liquid nitrogen to cool an instrument package between the top of the rocket and the Apollo space craft. attorney Russell T>itico, had asked the board several questions at its meeting last month concerning what transpired in a closed session of the board, Henry Yelvefton, assistant district attorney and legal advisor for (he school board, presented the questions to the body in open session. The board declined to answer the questions, claiming that what transpired In its executive sessions was "privileged." Judge G. William Swift Jr. ruled Monday that the board must answer the questions of Moffett's attorney. In handing down its ruling the judge said his decision was made in face of the fact that the parish school board did not object within the 10-day limit set previously by the court, and not based on whether the board had the right to withhold information divulged in executive session. Prince Edward Whites May Boycott Schools Richie Cemetery Association Sets Memorial Service MOSS BLUFF (Spl.) - Memorial services will be held at Richie Cemetery in Moss Bluff at 2 p.m. Sunday, according to Ward Reeves, president of the Richie Cemetery Association.

York Rests Well in Nashville NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) St. Alvin York, 76, hero of World War I, was reported resting well and in satisfactory condition at a Nashville hospital Monday night. York was admitted last Friday for treatment of internal hemorrhaging. PAttMVlLLE, Va. (AP)-Few white and Negro students are expected to share the same classrooms next fall in Prince Edward County despite a U.S. Supreme Court order that public schools be reopened on an integrated basis. While reaction to Monday's historic ruling from county and state officials was scant, opinions were privately voiced that the net result would be a public school system attended almost entirely by Negroes and boycotted by white students who would continue to study at private, segregated schools. In delivering the court's main opinion, Justice Hugo L, Black said "the time for mere 'deliberate speed' has run out, and that phrase can no longer justify denying these Prince Edward County school children their constitutional rights to an education equal to that afforded by the public schools in other parts of Virginia." The case, which has journeyed through a maze of slate and federal court decisions since its inception in 1951, was sent back to the Richmond U.S. District: Court which was empowered to i order the county's schools re-: opened. Gov. Albertis S. Harrison Jr. ; discussed the decision with ! members of the state attorney general's staff and later told j i newsmen he could say very lit! tie because the case still awaits settlement of specific points in U.S. District Court. Harrison termed the ruling "manifestly a far-reaching decision" in that it marks the first time a court has committed itself to order .a legislative body to levy taxes. This was in reference to wording in the decision that the district court is empowered to require the Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors to levy the necessary taxes to finance a public school system. It was the refusal of the supervisors in the face of court- ordered integration to levy such 'taxes in 1959—and every year since — that resulted in the southside Virginia county becoming the only locality in the nation without public schools.
