MARCH IB, lens BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER HEWS PAOBTHMB Reverse Integration— W/ute Students Attend College for Negroes By I'lIIL MANGELSDORF INSTITUTE, W. Va. (AP) — Until last year, West Virginia State College was a school for Negroes only. Since last fall, 399 white students have signed up for classes, swelling the school's enrollment to 1,070. It is a unique—and successful— experiment in reverse Integration. The novelty of white students attending a Negro school has been achieved with little publicity. The faculty and student body have accepted It casually. President William J. L. Wallace explains it this way: "We didn't recruit white students. We felt it might be resented. But we knew many persons were interested and when white students showed up we accepted them." State is a land-grant college, located near a large Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Co. plant, about 10 miles from Charleston. Most of the white students live nearby. Many work at the chemical plant. President Wallace, a Negro with degrees from the University of Pittsburgh, Columbia and Cornell, thinks the experiment has been very successful. "In general" he said, "there has been no resentment on the part of the Negro students. People being; what they are, there was bound to be some conflict. But when minor incidents broke out, there always was someone nearby to settle the matter." About 35 per cent of State's student body come from other states, and they are Negroes. Dan Williams, a junior and editor of the student newspaper The Yellow Jacket, came from Miami, Fla. "I never thought I could go to school with white students," he said. "I never did before. Then I met Joe Vinaon (a white student). We're good friends now. He showed me how silly my attitude was and I have no resentment any more." Vin.son, a junior, is a transfer from Marshall College at Huntington, W.Va. "No tension at all that I can see," Vinson said. "The students here are friendly and interested in their, work." Dr. Angle King, a chemistry professor who received her doctor's degree recently from the University of Pittsburgh, believes her white students are more aggressive. She said she hue come to this conclusion: "White students have more motivation to learn. They work at the chemical plant and see an oppor-: tunlty to improve their positions, j Negroes aren't sure they'll have good Jobs when they finish school." Dr. King believes, however, that the situation at State will be help- NAZARENE EVANGELIST — Mr. Hay Hance, district superintendent of the Kansas District of the Nazarene Church, will be the special evangelist for the Church of Nazarene in Blytheville's Youth Organization When it sponsors a revival beginning tonight and lasting through March 27. Mr. Hance has served on the Central Youth Council for the entire denomination for several years. Miss Doris Payne Is president of the youth group and she and her council have arranged for a youth choir, special numbers and full participation each night. Rev. J. Emmert has been asked to direct the choir. ful to the Negroes. "These white students who have studied with the Negroes will have no hesitation about putting in a good word for them if the situation arises," she said. The coach is Mark Cardwell, an athletic standout during his student days at State. Cardwell coaches both football and basketball. 'We had about 10 white boys turn out for the football team last year. Three of them stuck it out ill season and one played a lot of ;ootball for us. There certainly was no racial problem with us." President Wallace has high hopes for the experiment now developing at State. "I look on it as a symbol," he ,aid. "As an answer to those people who believe Negroes cannot administer biracial projects." Waitress Does Slow Burn while Alleged Hubby Proposes Marriage NORFOLK, Va.
