THE BOSTON GLOBE FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1961 Nine Lynn School Merger Awaits Study by Hub Educators By WILLIAM DOOLITTLE LYNN, Jan: 12 The hot con troversy over proposed con solidatio nof the city's three high schools was momentarily cooled tonight when the School Committee unanimously voted to seek the recommendations of three Boston educators. the vote came during a stormy session punctuated by I the hurling of accusations and' insults at members of the City! Council by committee members, including Mayor Thomas P. Costin. The meeting opened in a Pilot Chides ' And Praises JudgeWyzanski The Archdiocesan weekly, The Pilot, chides Federal Judge Charles E. Wyzanski in its lead editorial this week for taking "unnecessary risks" with the reputations of wit nesses m the recent Thomas Worcester hearings. . At the same time.'.The Pilot ilauds the justice for placing ;"the law itself in that wider context of human existence iwhich gives it its deeper meaning." the Catholic weekly ob-! serves that members of the bar and the public tend to confuse the merely legal with the 'moral. And it notes a tendency on the part of courts to respond to decisions only" by adhering "to the strictest demands of the law alone." t Urges Others Speak Finally it urges others to speak out with equal candor "providing that ferment of intelligent discussion that makes men worthy of their democratic heritage." . The editorial said in part: : "In the case under discussion Judge Wyzanski has allowed himself to move beyond, while never abandoning, the strictly legal aspects of the matter and to explain and defend his own juridical conduct in terms far wider than those normally appealed to. This we find impressive, and it is precisely these wider, more, human terms that make it necessaray for us to be in disagreement with him. Setting aside, then, the legal arguments that support the action of the Court, our anxiety touches upon the moral considerations which might have been included. To place witnesses, not legally charged with crime, in a community context that implies guilt or allows the public to draw this conclusion, when other lines of action are open to the Court (e.g. private testimony), takes unnecessary risks with the reputations o f the innocent and, if we may judge it, unwittingly offends moral justice. "It will be argued that a judge cannot preserve order beyond his courtroom and these reputations are lost in the reporting. This is perhaps true, but we must accept responsibility for the results of our actions so long as these can reasonably be foreseen. Only when no other line of action is open to us, and the demands of the public good are clear and pressing, only then can we permit one evil in order to stave off a greater one. In the moral view, a man's reputation, even where that reputation may be a false one, is a precious right and every reasonable effort must be used to preserve and respect it. "Judge Wyzanski has chosen a bold course, characteristically, and he will be grateful if he has stirred to new thought and action civic complacency, which is the greatest enemy of a free society. It will be salutary, too, if he encourages others to speak out with equal candor, not seeking agreement, but providing that ferment of intelligent discussion that makes men worthy of their democratic heritage." small room at the Administra-1 tion Building on FrSnklin st., but an overflow crowd of 120 forced transferral to the auditorium of Lynn Classical.

Will Vote for Proposals Mayor Costin, who favors a merger, has said "I will vote for any proposals these experts make." Last month the School Committee voted to merge the athletic facilities of all three schools. Mayor Costin accused the City Council of voting against people's wishes on urban redevelopment. He singled out Councilor-at-Large Arthur J. Frawley, former mayor, for "holding up million in Federal funds for the city." The meeting was adjourned after Vk hours, but resumed on the request to be heard of Leo J. Wallace, co-chairman of the newly-formed Citizens and Lynn High Schools Alumni Committee. His co-chairman, Atty. Daniel X. Sullivan, presented petitions bearing 1771 signatures opposed to the proposed merger. Committeeman Robert Webber went on record as being opposed to a merger as not being in the best interests of the system. Gunman Hunted After Newton Pay Robbery A 14-state police 'alarm was sent out by Newton police last night for a holdup man who robbed and kidnapped a department store employee and another man and then made off with a $1200 payroll. Charles Frrniault, 23, cm-ployed by Friod's Department Store, and a friend Rocco Di-Seglio, 21, had just left the Newton Corner branch of the Newton-Waltham Bank and Rotten into a car when the holdup man hopped into the rear seat. With a knife and a gun, he ordered Fremault to drive about a mile to the Newton Brighton line where he struck DiSeglio on the head and fled. It was the store s second pay roll robbery in three years.
