They took issue with a stale ment published in -one newspaper that said, "At a special meeting b the- Board of Education no repre sentatives from Ihe parents of the striking students 'attended." The statement explains that the parents were not represented at the meeting because Ihey had no prior knowledge of the meeling. Until Ihe three members, at the request of the citizens committee, agreed yesterday to meet and discuss .the situation, th'ere had been no representative of the Board of Education in conference with the larents or students and they did lot make themselves available for discussion,- the parents claim.
