PAG« TWO BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)* COURIER NEWI WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER t», 1954 Alabama Studies Plan to End Public School MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A bold new plan to abolish Alabama's compulsory public school system and let the parents say whether they want segregated classrooms has been recommended by a legislative committee and a group of lawyers. • It would open the way for state- subsidized private schools .and strike from the state Constitution the historic mandate that separate schools must be provided for white and Negro students. The propose <i constitutional ed by a special legislative committee and a segregation commit* tee of the Alabama Bar Association as a way of getting around the Supreme Court decision outlawing separate schools. Sen. Albert Boutwell of Birmingham, chairman of the Senate- House Committee, announced' two weeks ^go that * plan had been forwarded to Gov. Gordon Persons. The details were withheld however until a source close to the committee disclosed them today. Alters Constitution The program is aimed at removing all reference to public schools in the Constitution and re- amendment is one 01 eight changes j writing Section 25 which specifi- in Alabama's organic law suggest- cally provides for a public school 'Kimona Cabinet' Decides Japan Needs Womanly Cleanup By ROBERT PROSSER TOKYO' Iff)—A 13-woinan.-"kimo- no cabinet" -has taken a -look at Japan's problems .and decided a womanly house cleaning is in order. £ Woman's Fourm,' leading Japanese woman's magazine, reported the results today. /The ' self-appointed cabinet includes authors, civil servants and politicians.

Ten Planks Here' are the" women's planks, straight from the kimono cabinet: "Prime minister" Raicho Hiratsuka, women's rights leader, urged realism .in naming ambassadors. "Send a dairy farmer to Denmark, send ,a good-sense housewife to the-United States, send a rice far- mer to a country that growsfrice." "Finance minister" _Ayako* Ishi- gakir—"I will slap prohibitive taxes on any entertainment involving geisha girls." •"'Trade and maustry minister" Chieko Yamamoto—"Japan is like a mistress ., who has been living on the bankroll of her" millionaire patron." "Food minister" Fumiko Funada —limit drinking hours to 6 to 10. p.m. and arrest all drunks on sight. "Labor Minister" Kikue Yamakawa—outlaw the geisha. "Education minister" Keiko Shi- nii2u—an immediate 100 .per cent pay increase for teachers.

Two of the proposed amendments also would authorize the Legislature to make school officials and employes "judicial officers" to protect them against lawsuit, and require the state to defend them against court action. Another would take out the reference to public schools in constitutional provisions governing tax money for education. A proposed amendment to Section 256 would give the Legislature wide latitude in establishing non- state operated schools and arranging for "the grant or loan of public funds and the lease, sale or donation of real or personal property to or for the benefit of citizens of the state for educational. purposes." . •• Instead of mandatory public schools, the amendment says "it the policy of the State of Alabama to foster and promote the education of its citizens in a manner and extent consistent with its. available resources, and the willingness and "ability of the individual student." But, it adds, "nothing in the Constitution shall be construed as creating or recognizing any right to education or training at public expenses, nor as limiting the au- thority and duty of the legislature ... to require or impose conditions or procedures deemed necessary to the preservation of peace and order." And to avoid "confusion and disorder and to promote effective and economical planning foi\ education," it would give the right of free choice to parents and guardians who want-their children to "attend schools provided for their own race," subject to whatever restrictions the Legislature provides. A penciled note at the top. of, the proposed amendment ;reads, "study this closely. This "is the clincher." ••:.•' No Winners In This Game OKLAHOMA CITY (ffy— Oklahoma City football parlay card who lost, lost, and those who won. also lost.
