Private hearings before the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination have been going on. The N.A.A.C.P. promised there will be "action" if the negotiations fail, but was not prepared to say what sort of action . Talks will continue also between a N.A.A.C P. negotiat ing group and the school committee over a 14-point pro- gram presented by the Negro spokesmen last week. The understanding was that there will be another meeting of the two groups within two weeks.

The phrase means segrega tion in fact, or in reality, as opposed to segregation by law, It was on this point that last week-end s talks foundered. If school committee had approved a statement on the matter satisfactory to the N.A.A.C.P., Monday's school demonstration would have been canceled. According to the N.A.A.C.P., the school committee 'said in effect, "The conditions exist, the problems which result from the conditions exist, but the cause, segregation, does not exist" More Protest More civil rights demonstrations are in store for Boston. On June 26 there will be a huge memorial service on Boston Common for Medgar Evers, the N A.A.C.P. official who was murdered in Jackson, Miss., last week. Another movement known as STOP, planned as a city-wide work stoppage and economic boycott by Negroes and sympathetic whites, also is scheduled for June 26.

They were addressed by Rt Rev. Anson Phelps Stokes Jr Episcopal Bishop of Massachu setts, and Rt Rev. James K. Matthews, New England Meth odist Bishop. They heard Celtics' basket ball star Bill Russell tell them to "wear your color as a badge." And they sang songs born of the civil rights disorders in the Deep South. Across the river, 40 boys at Cambridge High and Latin School staged a brief sympathy demonstration for the Boston stay-out Tuesday night there was a meeting at St. James Church in Roxbury for those students who did not attend the day's workshops. About 80 showed up. Noel Day; executive director of the St Mark Social Center, headquarters for the work shops, said the entire stay-out movement cost only $200. The demonstration was bet ter than we had hoped for," said Day. "This is the begin ning of the movement in Boston. - "What we achieved was to alert the community as a whole to our problems and to help people understand, especially the youngsters." The N.A.A.C.P. said "The ac tion taken by the students is not against the School Committee but for their freedom and for their rights." It also asserted in a state ment that through Supreme Court decisions the law has moved to the point of not re quiring that "clear intent to segregate" be proven before citizens have a right to seek remedy from de facto segregation. "To do nothing when segregation exists," the N.A.A.C.P. said, "is tantamount to imposing segregation by law." It said that unless the school mit the existence of de facto , . seereeation here, there could i Plants. be no basis for action to meet the problem. In the city's predominantly Negro schools, the agency said, 'There are overcrowded classrooms, understaffed fa- madequate physical it agree with the charge that Negro pupils are discriminated against in the education being given them.

Absenteeism High At White' Schools ABSENTEES Continued from Page 1 However, virtually ' all-white high schools like South Boston, East Boston, Hyde Park, Charlestown and Roslindale had very high absenteeism, and they can scarcely be considered near any potential racial trouble spots. Charlestown High, on the day after the Bunker Hill Day parade, had 301 absentee pupils instead of the usual 51. South Boston High had 327 rather than the usual 160. Hyde Park's normal 109 was up to 273, and East Boston High was up from 113 to 201. . . Two other explanations besides Dr. Gillis' are suggested: 1 Tuesday'! weather was magnificent 2 Some students might have stayed out in sympathy with the Negro movement.

Here is how some of the statistics of Tuesday's so-called "Stay Out for Freedom" break down: There are normally 19,048 students in Boston's 16 public high schools, but since 3684 seniors left in mid-May, only 15,360 lower classmen were expected in school Tuesday. Of. these, 5605 (or about 36 percent) were absent. Normal absenteeism on such a day runs about 1536.' Boston's 16 public junior high schools have 12,882 pupils, of which 2655 were absent Tuesday, or about twice as many as the usual 1300. No statistics on racial background can legally be kept by any public school system, but it is estimated that about 10 percent of the 1232 student body (without seniors) at Boston Technical High are Negroes. The school is in a predominantly Negro section in Roxbury. This means that Tech has about 123 Negro students, but Tuesday's absenteeism ran to about 529. The normal is 86. Some school authorities said unofflciallythat they believed many white parents kept their children away in fear of possible violence. However, the heavy white-student absenteeism in non-Negro sections takes soma of the steam out of this observation. Another school spokesman expressed his opinion that many students "simply took a holiday when they had the chance."
