In Hie past, however, (he governor has indicated that n definite iclusnl might not be the way to handle the situation. "This problem has been simmering for some time," Lnney declared. "Today's action Is a culmination ol agitation which will be continuous. I don't know what the outcome will be." I He defended the stale In improving educational fnetlllles at the elementary and secondary levels. "T believe our expenditure user! for improving Negro schools during my three years In office will compare favorably with the money used on white schools." lie declared. j The governor pointed out that the | same formula was used in working lout fund increases for Arkansas A. i M. nnd N. Negro school at Pine Bluff as for the various teachers colleges in the state. "There hns been no discrimination or hold-back on funds during my term in office, nnd I have no apology to make along that line" he said. Laney pointed out that regional schools arc being considered means of meeting the "extreme situations" In technical, professional and graduate schools.
