(AP Wirephoto) Boston Judge Reverses Busing Stand BOSTON AP) -- A federal judge who ordered busing to help achieve racial balance in Boston schools this fall has called on city officials to minimize forced busing and transfers in next year's desegregation plans. "The less busing, the more acceptable to people all over the city," U.S. District Court Judge W. Arthur Garrity said Tuesday during his first hearing on permanent guidelines for total desegregation of city schools in 1975. Atiendance in Boston public schools reached 80.2 per cent Tuesday, the highest in the 14 days since classes started. Nine persons were arrested Tuesday, but officials said that over-all it was a relatively peaceful day. Four players from the New E n g l . a n d Patriots football team--two black and two white--visited two high schools in an effort to ease racial ten- iions. Patriots wide receiver Randy Vatalla, wlio visited the schools with teammates John Hannah, Sam Cunningham and Ray Hamilton, said, "We're not saying we're for, against or indifferent to the busing issue. "We've been asked to go, and if it will help make the situation better, we're all for it." Tuesday's arrests included five black youths accused ol trying to steal a white teacher's handbag. ·Three white youths were rested on charges of disorderly conduct after making abusivi nlibnsing remarks to police .en. A 14-year-old black was ar ;sted and charged with ston g a school bus. No one was njured. Trojans' Loss Credited To Russellville LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Hot Springs can blame its loss to Jenton on Russellvillc. Sound confusing? Here's the explanation. Bcnton opened its season b osing to Russellville. The loss convinced Max Graham that he vould have to abandon the vishbone in favor of the I for mation. That meant halfback Denver Ford would move fron offense to the defensive secon dary. Ford, a S-foot-9, 145-poum senior, intercepted two passes against Hot Springs and re turned both for touchdowns Fri day night as the Panthers upse the Trojans 15'0. For his performance, Fon was named High School Playe of the Week by The Associated Press. INTERCEPTIONS Graham said both of Ford' interceptions came on quick ou patterns to the split end. "They had completed it time or two," Graham said "In fact they completed it ou_. just before the first touchdown Ford fell down on it and the; almost got away f r o m us. They came right back with the same play. "When you burn somebod: once, and he's a pretty goo football player, you don't burn him too many times in a row,' Graham said. Ford returned the first inter ception 55 yards for a score. "He had clear sailing for thp first 25 or 30 yards and then lie had cut back through a crowd, 1 Graham said. "Two or three players had a shot at him, bu he got awav from them " CLEAR SAILING Graham said Ford had "clea sailing" on the second return which covered 65 yards. Dale White got into the ac after Ford's interception. H picked off a Hot Springs pas and returned it to the nine-yarc line. White's interception led t a field goal and a 9-0 lead. Hot Springs came bacl throwing after the kickoff am Ford turned in his second TD interception return. Graham said Benton auan doned the wishbone becaus ^'we were not getting enoug: R plays offensively." "We felt like we had a couple boys that could run out of ic top of the I iind give us Ihe ig play," Graham said.
