Floyd 'W. Parsons, named Tuesday as the new superintendent, said in a television interview from Big Spring, Tex., that he thought Little Rock's schools had been damaged by the violence which erupted over integralion of Central High School in 1957-58. He said he looked forward to helping rebuild them. Parsons will take over as Lit-' tie Rock extends integration to the junior high schol level. He has presided over desegregalion of two Texas school systems, Big Spring and Beeville. He both cases, he told the Arcansas Demo c r a t, integration was brought about by economics. It was simply that the townspeople felt that it was not economically practical to operate a separate Negro high school for the small number of Negroes." Big Spring last year had 371 Negro students in all - Negro schools, 30 in integrated elementary schols, 4 ir integraled junior high schols and 1 in an integrated high school. The system had 406 Negro and 6,731 white pupils. Little Rock has about 21,000 students. The once-white high sctipls will hav* 24 Negro stu- dejHs next fall and four of the five junior high schools will have a total of 25 Negroes. Parsons said he had no plans dealing with school integration at the moment. School inlegralion is peculiar lo each specific community and only after the community and its philosphy is thproughly understod can you move forward on a solution." Parsons also said he favored strick discipline and good teach- jng gs a basis for a school system. And he said the school system should exist for the benefit of the child and for the preservation of the Ajcierican way of life."

(AP) —Why another Shepard lype short is to assure reliability of safe flight and re turn, says a space official. One trip doesn't do it. But why not make this next trip to full orbital flight, like the one by the Soviet's Yuri Gagarin? Answer, the bigger Atlas rocket needed for lhat is not ready. Meanwhile, Capt. Virgil T.
