Frazier, whose leg was in a cast due to a fracture, and required the aid of crutches, was shot through the side of his chest. According to statements given police, several other shots were fired but no one else was struck. The three to five occupants of the van ordered four of Frazier's comrades who were standing near the station wagon to" get in their car and leave. They attempted to do so, but their vehicle became mired in mud, and they ran into the woods. The Ivydale man's two remaining companions, who had been near the farmhouse when they heard shots, had already fled into the woods to safety, according to statements given police. When the six friends of the Ivydale man heard the van drive off, they returned to the station wagon, managed to dislodge it from the mud, and drive away. Two bullets holes were found in the station wagon when troopers investigated the shooting death. Frazier's companions were identified as Betty Cutlip, driver of the station wagon, Thelma Caine of Ivydale, Madge Lupordus of Spencer, William Douglas, Alice Green and Cecil Green, all of Ivydale. Troopers said the van carrying the murder suspects is believed to be a beige Volkswagen with a topper. The occupants are to be considered armed and dangerous/ The shooting remains under investigation by the Clay state police detachment. In Logan C o u n t y early Saturday, 29-year-old Bobby Black was shot to death with a .22 caliber revolver at the Millard Conley home near the Shively community, state police said. Troopers said the shooting apparently stemmed from an argument between Black and Conley, over Conley's daughter. Black was dead on arrival at Logan General Hospital. Conley, 58, was charged with Black's murder, and lodged in Logan County Jail. Several hours before the Black shooting, state police arrested 31-year-old Edward Petrosky of Logan on charges of attempted murder in a shooting involving two Logan area teenagers. That shooting occurred near Petrosky's home, following an argument that took place when Petrosky accused the youths of spitting on him, troopers said. Petrosky allegedly fired several shots with a .30 caliber carbine, grazing both teenagers. Neither youth was seriously injured, police said. Troopers declined to identify the youths, both juveniles. The Logan man was released from Logan County jail Saturday morning, after posting $2,000 bond. A hearing was set for July 31. ^ IN ROANE COUNTY, a 58-year-old woman, Ivy Anderson was shot to death M.U.

Study Shows South Leader In School Desegregation By Tom Raum WASHINGTON (AP) - Racially imbal- "intensely segregated" schools, the study anced schools, while decreasing in south- said. By contrast, it said, in the South during the same school year slightly over two of every 10 black pupils were attending such schools. In 1964, when Congress passed the Civil Rights Act, about 98 per cent of the black pupils in the South were attending all- black or mostly black schools. tion," Javits and Brooke said. Enrollment records from school districts that encompass an estimated 92 per cent of the nation's black enrollment and 75 per cent of its Latino enrollment were used as the basis of the survey. The study showed that in 1970, 64.2 per cent of Latino children were attending "predominantly minority" schools and 29 per cent were attending "intensely segregated" schools. By the 1974-75 school year, these levels had increased to 67.4 per cent and 30 per cent, respectively. An "intensely segregated" school was defined as one with more than a 90 per cent minority enrollment. ern and border states, have been increasing steadily in the Northeast during the 1970s, new government statistics released Saturday show. Northeast and Midwest public schools are nowi in effect, the most segregated in the nation and those in the South the least segregated, the survey said. The West has changed little since 1970, it added. In what was called the first tabulation of Latino "segregation trends," the study also said segregation of Spanish-surnamed pupils increased in the 1970s in all regions of the nation. The data was compiled by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare at the request of Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R- N.Y., and Sen. Edward W. Brooke, R- Mass. In releasing an independent analysis of the data done by a Brookings Institution researcher, the two senators said the information demonstrates "how few children have been affected by desegregation plans outside the South." Although the Supreme Court declared school segregation unconstitutional in 1954, in the 1974-75 school year roughly six of every 10 black pupils in the Northeast, Midwest and border states were attending Casey In their petition, they said that they had requested the commissioners to fix the amount of money to be allocated to each of their departments several times before resorting to a lawsuit. They said they had also filed detailed appropriations requests with the commissioners. Following the decision, Commissioner Kelly Castleberry said, "We will comply with the ruling and do another budget." Castleberry and fellow commission member Catalano testified that the budget order requested by the plaintiffs had been filed. Commissioner Thomas L. Black said it hadn't. In testimony before Judge Casey, Castleberry said Thursday that the levy estimate was the budget and that it reflected the anticipated expenses for fiscal 1976-77. Winter said that the levy estimate presented to the State Tax Commissioner in March by the county commissioners was not the budget. Judge Casey refused to accept a copy of the levy estimate as evidence when no one was able to produce the original levy estimate. Before the judge's.ruling, Winter said the copy differed significantly from the original. On the question of whether or not Catalano was a member of the commission and subject to the order. Judge Casey ruled that the resignation, which Catalano withdrew hours after he tendered it, was not effective. The judge said the written order to put the commission's oral acceptance of the resignation on the record was prepared two days later, was signed only by Black and was never entered into the official commission record. In addition, Judge Casey said that the remaining two commissioners had taken "no effective action as required by l a w . . .to attempt to fill any vacancy which may have existed at that time by reason of John D. Catalano's tender of his resignation." »· JUDGE CASEY FOLLOWED his decision by saying he was "disturbed" to find that orders from the court and the commissioners were not being entered in the record immediately. "In order to be effective, these orders should be entered promptly," he said and instructed the clerk to see to it that the practice of waiting waiting as long as five weeks before entering an order is stopped. These orders should not be carried around in someone's coat pocket or left on a desk, said Judge Casey. "I deeply regret the necessity of thrashing this thing out in court," said Winter after he left the courtroom. "I hope we can put this thing behind us." Following the decision, Charles W. Covert. Castleberry's lawyer, said that the budget the commissioners will set will be 10 per cent higher than last year's budget. Castleberry said that the commissioner's original budget for fiscal 1976-77 was 25 per cent lower than last year's "to help the taxpayers". Covert said the commissioners will hike the budget 10 per cent instead to avoid having another lawsuit filed by the plaintiffs challenging the 25 per cent cut.

The inquiry's purpose, staff members say, is to reassure the public that a fair investigation is under way--that is, to remove any possible stigma from the inquiry or from Secretary of Labor W.J. Usery Jr. "There's a need to get out into the public that something is being done," said a spokesman for Sen. Jacob K. Javits of New York, the ranking Republican on the Senate Labor and Public Welfare Committee, which will conduct the hearings." Usery was criticized this past week for going to the Teamsters convention in Las Vegas, Nev., and praising Teamster leaders even as he knew that some of them had been subpoenaed by his own department to give evidence in the pension fund investigation. But the spokesman insisted that the Senate hearings had "no relation to the Usery statements" at the convention. At the moment, no decision has been made about whether to call Usery as a witness, but Javits and Sen. Harrison A. Williams, D-N.J., the committee chairman, received Usery's pledge of full cooperation in a meeting with the Labor secretary in Washington on Friday morning.
