Recently, the Milford studen council wrote a letter to the School Board which asked the board to spell out just what th integration policy would be in the future with regard to sports, anc other activities. The student council, headed bj Edward J. Steiner. a tackle on the football team, then asked the board for a meeting to have the questions answered.

The 17-year-old Steiner, a 238. pound six-footer, and Dr. Paul Malic, high school mathematics teacher and student council adviser, said the student council is not interested in whether the School Board follows a proscgrega- tion or prointegration policy. "What we want is for the board lo lay down a line and hew to it in their future decisions." • The board in its statements said politics was involved, that the defeated board candidates were trying to embarrass the present board.
