NorifrwMt Arkanta* TIMES, Thun., Oct. 24, 1974 · 3 FAVrrriVILLt, ARKANSAS Bostonians Visit Mixed School System CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The only similarity between ur school and your school is le blackboard," said one of our Boston high school stu- ents here to take a look at Charlotte's integrated school ystem. "People · just seem to get long," said Bob Messina, a member of the Boston group which arrived late Monday and met with student leaders and chool administrators Tuesday. About 18,000 of Boston's 92,00 public school students are affected by a court-ordered busing program that has been marred by violence and some white student boycotting since schools opened last month. "People (in Boston) were not willing to listen," said Dana Bonsai, committee co-chairman. 'People want to close their minds and not want to understand where the other man came from." A n o t h e r Boston student, Linda Lawsence,' said blacks and whites in her city were afraid of one another because the races had lived apart culturally. ! NEW EXPERIENCE "White people have never dealt with black people and the black people haven't dealt with the whites," she said. "It's a new experience." The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system has been integrated under a court order that required massive busing. Charlotte students invited the Boston group and arranged for the visit so they could share their experiences. "We're still working at it every day and we don't have any miracle answers," said Charlotte student Dwight Covinglon. 'But what was a new situation for us 10 years ago is a new situation for you now. And we want you to know we've learned a lot about judging anybody, black or white, as'an individual. It just took time." The host students admitted that racial fighting still occurs here, but they said generally the students have accepted desegregation and are trying to make it work. Last week one high school was closed at noon after racial fighting involving nearly 100 blacks and whites. "We haven't really acceptec it fully," said one Charlotte stu dent. "But we've adjusted to il real well." Injury Suit NEWPORT, Ark.
