State Girls Schools Desegregated LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The newly created Arkansas Juvenile Training School Board, in a 3-2 split, decided Thursday to play all girls in the previously all-white Girls Training School at Alexander and close the one at Fargo that had been used for Negro girls. The vote to merge the two schools came, i in. accordance with the' 8th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision that the facilities must be desegregated, i One of the two opposing the decision was Dr. D. J. Webster, a Negro minister from North Little Rock. Webster, the board chairman, said he thought the action was "too hasty." Webster said he preferred to let Paul E. Shipley become acquainted with the program before reaching a decision on the matter. Shipley, 36, superintendent of Lewisville schools, had been named earlier in the day as executive director of the Juvenile Training Schools Department. Also opposing the merger was Marion Ward of Little Rock who said there had not been enough evaluation made to begin "throwing the girls together." "You can't do a human life that way," Ward said, adding that there wasn't enough room at Alexander for adequate protection or training. There are 95 girls at the Fargo school and 68 at Alexander. The board also adopted a reception and classification plan devised by the Arkansas Rehabilitation Service. The plan, which will be sub- PfcOPEETY (from page one) tentiary with the remainder go* ing into the general revenue account. The House defeated the tax proposal once during the 1967 regular session and twice during the special session last February, The other defeat in the lower chamber came last February when a third such proposal died in committee. Opponents of the bill called it "obnoxious" and said it would not produce enough revenue to pay the cost of administering it. The tax, which was administered by the federal government until this year, would produce about $500,000 a year, administration sources had said. The House approved 87-0 the bill giving the Racing Commission power to revoke an existing dog track franchise or refuse to grant a new one if it determines that any officer, director or pincipal stockholder "is of undesirable personal background." The bill, included in the call at the Legislative Council's request, came in the wake of re- Friday, Mir 24, cent charges that a New York "syndicate" was attempting to take over the track at West Memphis. The House also defeated 35-43 a bill that would have removed the compulsory requirement that all calves be vaccinated against brucellosis, the meas* ure would have left such vaccinations to the discretion of the state veterinarian. • Tlie Senate passed the $5 mil. lion investment bill by a 29-2 vote. The other two measures to pass, both coming from the House, authorized improvement districts to levy a tax for maintenance (30-0) and clarified -income tax regulations (24-7). The upper chamber bickered over those measures, making it clear the members weren't ; in any mood to to tackle the more controversial legislation pending. The Senate showed enthusiasm only on resolutions praising Sen. J. Lee Bearden jof Leachville, who is retiring after 28 years in the legislature, and one praising Arkansas State University students for their rescue and cleanup work in the aftermath of the May 14 tornado at Jonesboro.

REVIVAL Providence Memorial Baptist Church OF PiRRYTOWH Will Begin Revival Services Sunday, May 26 through June 1 Services 7:30 Each Evening Bro. Charlie Warren, Evangelist D, D, FAIRCHILD, PASTOR mitted to U.S. District Court, calls for segregation by sex only with the girls being assigned to Alexander and the boys to schools at Pine Bluff and Wrightsville. The Immediate plan would call for evaluation teams to screen each of the 550 children in the four schools. "About 90 per cent of the girls at Fargo shouldn't be there in the first place," said Jess Reeves of Pine Bluff. He said many were placed in the school because no one in their family cared for them. Reeves also said many of the children should be sent to foster homes and the mentally retarded to the Arkansas Children's Colony at Conway, The board also decided to stop allowing the Negro boys at the Wrightsville school to work for farmers in the area. Supt. R. E. Hemphill said the boys had been allowed to work to earn money during the cotton chopping and harvesting seasons. The board said the primary function of the school was educational and tot any future work training program would be closely supervised with an objective to train the students. cheaper bij the dozen 12 LIVING COLOR PORTRAITS MINIATURE WALLET SIZE ALL 12 FOR ONLY 99* PLUS so* FILM CHARGE.
