Amendment Approved Oklahoma's legislative council committee on education has approved a constitutional amendment which would remove the state's mandatory segregation provisions. The legislature will meet in January to take up the issue. In Penscolav Fla., two Negro parents filed a suit Thursday seeking to force school officials to allow Negro high school athletic teams to use the all-white Pensacola high football stadium. ,, The petition says that Washington High School, for Negroes is unable to schedule home football games because it has no stadium. Ohio Gov. Frank J. Lausche declared Thursday that he "believes that "in a few school districts of Ohio a wrong is being committed on Negro children." A suit has been filed charging that racial segregation exists in schools at- Hillboro. Answer Filed The Baltimore 'Board of School Commissioners has filed an answer to a suit aimed at compelling the city • to maintain segregated schools. The board's demurrer contends that "there is no valid," constitutional law requiring the board of school commissioners to organize or operate separate schoos." The parents of seven school children and two white organizations are contending that the -city is obligated by law to maintain separate schools. Georgia's special committee set up to study means of maintaining segregation will be ask~ed Tuesday to -endorse Gov. Herman^ Talmadge's "private school" constitutional amendment. The . amendment, to go to the STARLINGS' BEWARE — Starlings around Cincinnati, Ohio, better go south, after city officials planned, a "shooting war" to rid the area of the birds.

'.. -, IKE voters in November, would allow the Legislature to appropriate funds to private individuals for educational purposes. It is the heart of .Talmadge's plan to abolish public schools and substitute "private" schools supported by- state grants.
