6 / DES MOINES REGISTER • Fri,, Aug. 29, 1975 OFFER TO GIVE UP CHILDREN; NOT INTEGRATE DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Some parents are offering to give up legal custody of their children rather than submit to a court-ordered pupil assignment plan to integrate Durham city schools, a Juvenile Court official said Thursday. The reason for the custody switch to friends and relatives living in adjacent Durham County, said Fred Elkins, the county court's chief counselor, is to make the children eligible to attend county schools. 25 Black City school enrollment last year was 73 per cent black and 27 per cent white, but concentrated in separate school districts which are overwhelmingly cither black or white. The county school population is only about 25 per cent black. But a federal court recently banned geographical assignment in the city system and ordered pupils to be assigned this fall in a way that would result in each school having a ratio of black and white pupils within 10 per cent of the citywide racial balance. Elkins said current requests for a change in custody, as many as four a day. are up sharply over previous years. "Almost without fail, people making the inquiries said they cannot get the children .into school unless they have legal custody," he said. Chief District Judge Lawson Moore is ordering careful screening of each case. "A child must be delinquent, undisciplined, neglected or dependent ' to the person requesting custody before a change of custody can be made. A juvenile court cannot change legal custody of children for the convenience of the parents," he said. Two-thirds Legitimate Jaspar Tharrington, court intake counselor, says two-thirds of the requests are legitimate. Sid Ray. administrative assistant to the county school superintendent, said he has been referring people to juvenile court, telling them that children who attend the~county schools must live in the county school district with a parent or someone who has legal custody. "It's up to the court to decide who is eligible and who is not," Ray said. "Unless the child is living with a parent or a legal MGIST6R PHOTO BY FRANK FOLWELU f guardian, we can't deal him." with $104,630 HEW grant to ISU Sptciil Dispckh to Tht Register WASHINGTON, D.C. $104,630 grant has been awarded to Iowa State University at Ames, la., for research into ways to improve vocational education at all levels, the U.S. Department of Health, Educa tion and Welfare (HEW) an nounced Thursday.

Astronomers excited over X-ray eruption in sky CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (AP) — Astronomers have been excited for the past month about an unusual, intense eruption of X-rays from a point in the sky. Now they've found out that ,he brilliant outburst is an encore to a performance 58 years ago. Astronomers say the source of the X-rays is a star, or two stars in close orbit, relatively near the earth in our galaxy, lelatively near means several thousand light years away. Discovered in August vard be searched for past flare- ups. Similar Outburst The search revealed that the" same object had a similar outburst of visible light in 1917. Dr. Rappaport says he thinks he new X-ray source is two stars, probably a regular one and a neutron star. A neutron tar is one so dense and with gravity so strong that the atoms in its center are crushed. The MIT scientist . says the neutron star's gravity could be pulling matter out of the regu- The X-ray source, now the brightest of its kind in the sky, was discovered in early August by the British satellite Ariel-5. The United States' X-ray astronomy satellite SAS-3 soon confirmed the discovery and precisely located the source. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University used instrument studies and some historical sleuthing to discover that the object also flared up in 1917. The star believed to be the source of the X-rays was first sighted visually in mid-August by Dartmouth College astronomers using the McGraw-Hill Observatory in Kitt Peak, Ariz. The scientists noted that its visible radiation increased a thousandfold in a short time, so Dr. Saul A. Rappaport at MIT suggested that historical records of the sky kept at Har- THEATER CLOCK CHARLIE'S SHOWPLACE: The Star- Spangled Girl — 6:30. CAPRI: Love and Death — 8:30. Sleeper — 7, 10.

(AP) — Mayor Tom Bradley contended Thursday that Police Chief Ed Davis and Gov. Ed- rnund (Jerry) Brown, jr., ruined Los Angeles' chances for he 1976 Democratic .National Convention- The mayor verbally danced iround, stopping short of plac- ftg the absolute blame on the outspoken chief and maverick Democratic governor for the oss of the convention. The mayor said the convention would have brought $20 million of business to his city. New York Chosen New York City won the 11-9 vote Wednesday by the Demo cratic site selection committee. The mayor said repeatedly — specifically mentioning Davis and Brown by name — that "the chief and the governor" had been 'problems" in the minds of the site selection delegates. Committee members and oth er Democratic party officials said they felt they got a cold shoulder from Brown and feared Davis would possibly "overreact" in case of demonstrations during the convention. "Delegates Concerned" "Some delegates were con cerned over the chief's intemperate remarks" in the past the mayor said, adding that he himself considered groundless any worries that Los Angeles would be an unsafe city. In Sacramento, Brown said that he was disappointed by the choice of New York. Brown said, "Mayor Tom Bradley and others did an excellent job in presenting the case for California." At his news conference 'hursday, Bradley cited no il- ustrations of past Davis remarks that may have disturbed he Democrats, but some of the olice chief's cdntroversial tands have been on women's Deration, gun control and air- raft hijackers.
