iCK PACK TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 1,1W4 Mississippi Equalized Plan For Education Watt red-Down Program Seeks To Retain Segregation JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Mississippi's Legislature is groping today toward a watered-down program to. equa- lise Negro and white schools, stm fearful that the U. S. Supreme Court will abolish racial segregation. The question in the-- 13-week-old legislative fight is how to maintain segregation, not whether to retain it. Hovering over the conflict is the Supreme Court and its decision on five school segregation cases. If the court bans segregation, a special legislative session looms. Mississippi's answer probably would be to abolish public schools and furnish tuition for private, segregated schools, in line with plans in Georgia and South Caro- Brwu Resolutions to abolish schools are pending in both houses, but tfaey do not go into details. If the court upholds segregation under the "separate but equal" doctrine, Mississippi realizes it must Hft its sub-par Negro schools to the level of white schools or face co-mingling of races "by federal force from federal courts," as Oov. Hugh White phrased it. A solid group in strategic House committee posts blocked attempts to raise taxes to if nance the sweeping equalization program, passed but still lacking money. School supporters now realize they must take less tihan they wanted. Tiie House finally approved a ^compromise program, scheduled "to go into effect July 1 if passed by the Senate, where it faces action possibly today. Supporters predict a narrow victory in the Senate. Under the compromise, construction — the major equalization item — would be delayed until after the first year of the plan, while teacher's salaries would be equalized and a start made toward equalizing transportation. A* 50- Hiillion-doHar appropriation, with 3* million for the first year and naore needed for the second, would finance it. The original program called for 86 million for two years. Space Travel Hopefuls Meet to Discuss Saucers JOSHUA TREE, Calif. (#) — The meeting had the imposing title of ^The First Interplanetary Spacecraft Convention." And a crowd estimated as high ae 3,000 showed up to hear discussions of flying saucers. But, except for airplanes, the only thing appeasing aerially was a kite, flown by a small boy. 'Fatalistic Fear' Called Snag In Cancer Educational Drive "Fatalistic fear of cancer is one search by grants of more than of the intangibles blocking progress f S4.500.000 annually to a selected list of the American Cancer Society's campaign to persuade all Americans to heed cancer's seven danger signals and to have regular prysical checkups," L. E. Isaacs, chairman of North Mississippi County Unit, said today. The society is conducting a nationwide drive during April for a goal of $20,000!000. The North Mississippi County goal is $2,000 "In spite of the widespread public' educational program that has been fostered by the society to teach the salient facts about cancer detection, treatment and cure," Mr. Isaacs said, "recent surveys indicate that about one out of every three adult Americans are not aware that cancer in any form is curable. Is it a wonder, then, that so many persons who suspect that they may have cancer shun a doctor's diagnosis since they regard confirmation of their fears as a sentence of death?" Americans should be alerted to the danger and increasing prevalence of cancer, he said, but at the same time should be encouraged to seek diagnosis of suspected symptoms, assured by the knowledge that an estimated one out of two cases can be cured if discovered in time and correctly treated. "Because of the extreme urgency of detecting cancers before they spread from their original site — if a cure is to be effected — the society's, educational campaign has bee/ concentrated on the seven most common indications of cancer." Mr. Isaacs emphasized that when he said half of those suffering from cancer should be cured, that this ideal recovery ratio was by no means being realized. "Last year, 73,000 Amercians were saved from cancer deaths but an additional 73.000 died who should have recovered if diagnosis and treatment had been made soon enough. The estimate that one out of every two cancer cases should be cured is based on an average for all types of maligant growth. The chances for recovery vary widely for different categories of cancerous conditions. "The American Cancer Society is firing three broadsides in its campaign to conquer cancer. Education is one. Another is support of re- of 100 institutions in which some 900 investigations are devoting their time to the quest for added Knowledge about the malady that strikes an estimated one out of every five Americans during their lives. "Continuation of the society's present all-out offensive is dependent on the success of the current fundraising crusade-" Barking Contest Slated STILLWATER, Okla.
