ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - Desegregation of public . schools Has expanded 'Considerably this f|jf in the South. But with the sjfead of change have come sfSfirts of' new', .resistance — White pupil boycotts, challenges or* federal guidelines and at leiist one punch in the face of a tft>ifool superintendent. ^Associated Press spot surveys o"f : :,tne 11 Southern states, from Virginia to Texas, indicate a p.fjbable doubling of the number of Negro pupils in school with white children since last yje&r. ;-The most significant develop- Bfieht, however, is the start of ftciilty integration in . many school systems; a major effect of~the controversial guidelines dfawn by"' the : U.S. Office of Education. .-••> ^We desegregated as many faculties as we could," said a SicBool official in.. Knoxville, Tenn., where 20 of the 68 schools Have Negro and white teachers. fifVfs have just one system for everybody now," said Supt. Jacob Johnson of .Winchester County, Va. Classrooms and faculties were integrated in the county, eliminating the dual ichool system. rffwo Negro schools closed in HuntsvUle, Ala., to .become relics of racial history. Despite the Alabama Legislature's enactment of a law nullifying school board agreements on federal guidelines, integration increased in the state •— many systems are under court orders, 5-The Alabama nullification law wijs pushed through by Gov. George C. Wallace, who vainly tijed to block university inte- grttion. three- years" ago by standing in a doorway at the University of Alabama. ?*fronically, Wallace's . son, George Jr., enrolled Tuesday at ^Montgomery school where 16 Negroes desegregated classes. fff{ another irony, the Democratic nominee for Arkansas governor. Jim Johnson — who opposes the federal guidelines — saw his twin sons enrolled in a desegregated school.: ' ",.; • Although faculty integration has begun in many schools this fall, it has not been accepted without objection in some -instances. A school superintendent at Sanford, Fla., was punched in the face by' a white father upset because his daughter's teacher was a Negro. In Interlachen, Fla., about one-half the'white children boycotted classes at a predominantly white elementary school which had three Negro teachers. Campbell County, Va., had 25 faculty vacancies^ last month when white teachers resigned because of integration. A wholesale boycott of white pupils resulted in Plaquemines Parish, La., when schools opened under a federal court desegregation order and five Negroes applied for transfer to one of the white schools. * * ' * Supporters of the boycott announced construction plans for five private schools, an alternative tried in other states also. Louisiana has an. estimted 11,000 pupils receiving the $2- day-per-pupil state grants for private schools. In Alabama, a three-judge federal court has set a Sept. 30 hearing, on a Justice Department suit aimed at prohibiting the state from, paying tuition grants for private segregate: schools under a 1965 law. - In Mississippi, however, a survey of more than 50 all-white private schools showed the response has been slow. The state pays $185 per pupil under .a tuition grant law, ..but the average cost of private schooling runs about $375 per year. Fa c u It y integration is beginning or spreading in most of the stales except Mississippi. Some schools in Alabama and Louisiana have begun integrating teacher staffs, while this change is well under way in most of the otiier slates.
