Today just three Negro schools and a handful of elementary schools, located mostly in Negro neighborhoods, have unmixed school populations.

Because of prospects for a larger total livestock feed grain crop this year than last and the existence of surpluses from past yeavs, there is a likelihood that grain prices may weaken noticeably after harvest. Average SIM The Agriculture Department has announced a price support rate averaging $1.36 a bushel for corn in a designated commercial producing area, comprising major producing counties in the Midwest, East and Southeast. But officials expect less than one-eighth of the corn crop—now forecast at a hefty 3,200,000,000 bushels—to be eligible for storage under the price support program. Only corn grown on farms which complied with federal acreage allotments this year will be eligible. Because the allotments were small, reflecting surpluses, not many farmers complied with es are in scattered parts of Storm Lake and the county. The report of the cases was sent to the State Health Department, which forwarded it to,Dr. Albert McKee, director of the World Health Organization regional laboratory at Iowa City. Storm's Winds Lash Gulf Coast NEW ORLEANS (*) — Tropical storm Esther lashed her 64 m.p.h. winds at New Orleans Wednesday and became the third Gulf storm to strike the Louisiana coast in less than three months. Unlike her predecessors, hurricanes Audrey and Bertha Esther avoided the Louisiana-Texas border and hit southeast Louisiana instead. The 64 m.p.h. winds were recorded on the Lake Pontchartrain causeway, the world's longest over water bridge, which crosses the huge lake just north of New Orleans. There were no reports of damage in the New Orleans area. Buras, east of New Orleans, reported five inches of rain in 2Vii hours. Esther's predicted course was across Mississippi and into north- sissippi, said most of the cases j are Asian flu. Up to 40 per cent ] of the population has or has had 1 flu in some areas, he added. Doctors investigated a suspected epidemic of Asian flu among more than 400 school children in the tow of Hastings in Oswego County, N.Y. Five schools in Hastings remained closed. They suspended classes Tuesday, the first schools in New. York State to do so because of flu. The flu outbreak in Texas appeared to be spreading. At Conroe, 60 miles north of Houston, 300 students were absent with flu. Dr, J. R. Cook said the situation definitely had reached the epidemic stage at Trinity, Tex., 70 miles north of Conroe, where 100 children were stricken. At Dallas, City Health Director J. W. Bass,set up classes in home nursing in event of a widespread outbreak of flu there. More than 450 students at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth are ill of a flu-like illness, Doctors, however, said they didn't think it is Asian flu. Wheels began turning for the establishment of a public junior college in Carroll when the new Community College Study Committee, appointed by the school board, held an organizational meeting Tuesday night in the Carroll High School auditorium. Lloyd Otto was elected chairman, H. C. Schogren vice chairman, and Phyllis Young of the Carroll High School faculty, secretary. Six sub-committees will ba formed within the next few days to study the special problems of area and philosophy, curriculum, staff, facilities, extra curricular program and finance. Members present at last night's meeting were asked to indicate on which of these sub-committees . they would prefer to serve. Kick-off Sept. 24 A kick-off meeting to which the general public is invited will ba held in the high school auditorium at 8 p.m. next Tuesday, September 24, with Dean Walter Hammer of Estherville Junior College as the guest speaker. April, 1958, was set as a target date for calling an election to vote on the proposal. A separate election may have to be called on a bond issue if it is decided that a building program will be necessary. Pluralities of 60 per cent of the school district will be required for both of these issues. Meanwhile the months of October, November and December will be devoted to sub - committee work. Reports of sub-committees are scheduled tentatively for January, 1958, with editing during, the month of February before submission to the State Department of Public Instruction and Board of Regents in the "month of March- Approval of these two agencies is required by law before the proposal can be brought to vote. If the tentative schedule is maintained and "everything jells perfectly," the earliest possible date for opening the college would be September 1, 1959, according to W. Paul Forney, superintendent of Carroll Public Schools. At the oub» side, a period of five years may be required to get under way. 50 Attend Last night's meeting, which was attended by about 50 repre- The Senate committee has I sentatlves of Senior and Junior Says Hoffa Lied on Stand perjury" by testifying he could not recall matters raised in Senate Rackets Investigating Committee hearings.

He said that, according to predictions by educators, enrollments in colleges will be doubled by 1970. Facilities probably will not double in the same period.
