FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 1988 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGB THREB 7th Fleet Commander Adm. Pride Rose to Top Ranking Naval Officer from. Seaman Status By 81'ENOER MOOSA TAIPEH, Formosa (AP) — The one and only U. S. combat vice admiral who never went to Annapolis commands the U. S. 7th Fleet on guard in the waters around Formosa. He Is Vice Adm. Alfred M Pride, who Joined the Navy 37 years ago *s an enlisted man. A onetime navy test pilot, he is « bald, 57-year-old grandfather with a light red mustache and a twinkle in his gray eyes—a family man and a churchgoer. His subordinates say he is tolerant, understanding, good-tempered and relaxed at leisure, and quietly intense but unruffled at work. He has a sense of humor and never misses anything. Once, on hearing the strong language of a young enlisted sailor, he remarked: "How such young boys could learn so much foul language in auch a short time I'll never know." Commands Respect While he is "easy to know—not the dominating type," as one officer phrased it, he commands the full respect of his men. He is of medium height, robust and muscular. He does not use tobacco. In drinks, he limits himself to two cocktails; takes them only to be sociable. "I've never seen such a conscientious man—he's always worrying about the taxpayers' money," said a fellow officer. Pride, the officer added, puys V. Adm. Pride from his own pocket for many entertainment expenses he feels he cannot charge legitimately to the government. The initial M. stands for Melville and the only nickname he has ever had is Mel. Only his closest friends call him that. Pride was born in Somerville, Mass., Sept. 10, 1807. He attended engineering school at Tufts College before he enlisted in the U.S. Na- val Reserve early in Ifll7 as a machinist mate, second class. He transferred to the regular service in 1921 and in the '20s be came a naval t«st pilot. Ills left leg was broken in a crash. It has never been the same since. Active Pilot Pride has checked out In almost everything the Navy has to fly, including helicopters. He still is an active filer. Only two days ago he was at the controls of an R4D, the Navy version of.the twin-engine military transport plane, on a flight from Taipeh to Tainan in southern Formosa and back. He commanded first a bombing and then a fighting squadron on the Langley, the Navy's first carrier, and held various assignments in the United States. In 1943 he assumed command of the newly commissioned carrier Bellcau Wood and served with distinction in the Pacific. In 1944 he was promoted to rear admiral and assigned to duty at Pearl Harbor. Duty in Washington and at sea followed until May 1947, when he was appointed chief of the Navy's Bureau of Aeronautics In Washington. He was named commander of Carrier Division 2 in 195! and the next year was made commander of the naval air test center at Patuxent River, Md. He assumed command of the 7th Pled with the rank of vice admiral Dec. 1, 1953. US. Continued from Page 1 loi's Initiative" to give Nehru Pel- ping's point of .view on Formosa. The sources said Nehru would "take the earliest opportunity" to call on Eden in London. The Indian Premier suggested to newsmen at the New Delhi airport today that the Formosa crisis might push purely Commonwealth problems- into the background at the prime ministers' meeting, which opens Monday. No Washington Comment Eden was reported confident of winning support for his peace program from the Commonwealth nations. There was no comment from Washington on the reported plan. The British Foreign Office also refused to discuss the matter.

Only Negro School It was the only Negro sch&ol in the district. Negro high school students are transported to Caruthersville and taken care of under a tuition contract. What best can be done will be hard to decide according to school officials, considering that legislation intended to end segregation soon is at hand. It is believed that white patrons of the district will hold the district's schools to segregation if possible and as long as possible. Some schools in Southeast Missouri started the school year with integration and it was discontinued In some cases after a trial. Negroes in several insances re- prtcd that they were betetr taken care of in Npgro schools. The Mapfeivood Negro school was well equipped and the building was in excellent condition.
