BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEW» TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1954;. PupilsStayatnome In Delaware Battle Against Integration MILFORD, Del. (AP) — More than two-thirds of the pupils at Milford's newly integrated school stayed home from classes for the second day today as the battle over admission of 11 Negro pupils continued.

Bodies Removed From Ferry Boat Sunk in Typhoon 1,172 Lives Lost In Capsized Japanese Vessel HAKODATE, Japan Cf)—Japanese divers today began removing the first of hundreds of bodies in the sunken hull of the ferry Toya Maru which capsized Sunday -in', a typhoon with the loss of 1,172 lives. Three divers recovered the bodies of ,20 Japanese from the wreckage on the floor of Hakodate harbor. They located the bodies of about -40 of the 60 Americans who perished. National rural police estimated the overall typhoon death toll at 1,508, .most of whom died in northern Japan. Divers reported 43 rail cars tore loose from their moorings on the boats' deck when it capsized, crushing bulkheads, equipment and human beings in Japan's worst maritime disaster. Only 362 .bodies have been recovered. The Japan National Railways listed 173 survivors out of 1,341 passengers and crew. The tides still were washing in bodies. As a chill drizzle soaked the scene, a "U.S. Air Force helicopter dipped low over the wreckage and dropped white flowers into the oily, debris-strewn bay in a salute to the dead. Hundreds more died in widespread marine accidents, landslides and other mishaps from the typhoon, which veered across northern Japan with winds of 100 miles an hour. Four other ferries also went down with the loss of more than 200 lives. The Americans who died on the Toya Maru were mainly servicemen — most from the 99th Field Artillery Battalion — and their dependents. Several missionaries also were aboard, including one who survived. Dr. George R. Miller, state superintendent of public instruction, announced that 509 pupils—or 32.6 per cent of the enrolled 1,562 enrolled at the previous all-white combined elementary and high school—attended classes today. This was an increase of three per cent over yesterday when 456 pupils reported after their schools had been closed for a week. Dr. Miller said the two factors still dominating the situation are "the fear of violence and intimidation by those opposed to the integration." He said state officials have given no thought at present to prosecuting parents who deliberately keep their children home in violation of the state compulsory school attendance law. That statute requires school attendance until the age of 16. 3 Days Permitted Dr. Miller said the law contains a clause which allows for three consecutive days of unexplained absence from classes. Today marks the second day of the boycott by those opposed to integration. Meanwhile,^at the nearby town of Lincoln only 36 of enrollment of 140 pupils at an all- white elementary school reported for classes today. Parents were reported to have kept their children at home in sympathy with the Milford boycott. . A crowd of about 100 persons gathered outside the Lincoln school as classes started but they quickly dispersed. Noting today's attendance in Milford, Dr. Miller said - he had been hopeful that more pupils would report but he expressed some satisfaction over the increase from yesterday. Eight of the 11 Negro pupils arrived again for classes in private cars and two other boys came on a school bus with 21 white pupils.

Polish Security Official Granted U.S. Asylum Was Deputy Chief In Communist 1 Poland Ministry WASHINGTON WV-A high security official of Poland's Communist government has fled his country and been granted asylum in the United States. This was disclosed today by Atty. Gen. Brownell who announced that, at the request of the State Department, he has granted temporary entry into the United States of Josef Swiatlo, 39. Swiatlo is former deputy chief of department 10 of the Polish Ministry of Public Security in Warsaw. The Justice Department said that No. 10 is responsible for the protection of the Polish Communist party and regime against internal political subversives. BrownelTs announcement said Swiatlo took refuge in the American sector of Berlin 10 months ago. The only previous hints that the Polish official might have defected to the West came in radio broadcasts from behind the Iron Curtain which made vague references to Swiatlo's disappearance from Warsaw. American authorities - indicated today that they believed these broadcasts were in the nature of ••feelers" designed to draw out information from the West. The Justice Department said that last Dec. 1 Swiatlo and his security chief were en route to East Berlin for conferences with the chief of the East German intelligence service when Swiatlo slipped away. He turned up on Dec. 5 in the French sector of Berlin, made his way to the American zone and turned himself over to U. S .military police. The announcement said that Swiatlo, born at Madyna, Poland,, is married and has two. children. His family was last reported as still living in Warsaw. f TtUvitioH — Tonight, Tomorrow — WMCT Channtl 5, 4 More Lumber TOKYO Itf) — Peiping radio says North Korea has stepped up lumber production to beyond prewar level with the help of Soviet technicians and Russian and Czech equipment.
