Resolutions passed at a meeting of the Southwest Regional Board of the National Association for the Advancement- of Colored People I here yesterday said that the group j "wa.s very disappointed at a "lag i, the desegregation movement in Arkansas in 1955 after a promising start in 1954." The board, said that progress was made in desegregation in I New Mexico, Oklahoma and in some parts of Texas. Legal Airtion Coming Louisiana, ihe fiCih state in the region, was described as "adamant" in opyosing integration. "Definite legal action in Louisiana will commence very soon," ihe report said. Gloster C. Current of New York City, advisor for regional branches, would not comment on possible federal lawsuits in Arkansas. He said thiit efforts would be concentrated in "larger cities" in the state, but he declined to name specific areas. Only one suit—at Van Burnn—has been filed in Arkansas tusking that school officials bt forced to integrate. The group plans to concentrate on its drive for mixed Negro and white schools. Current said. Iluxte Hoard Commended "Then we can turn our attention to segregation in the fields of public health, public transportation and public recreation," he said. The board commended the Hoxie, Ark. School Board for its action in integrating Negro and white pupils. The school officials were praised for "not surrendering to j hate and ignorance." Hoxie schools were integrated last June without incident, but the School Board drew strong criticism from segregation forces some months after the program was Initiated.
