pupils in Norfolk and the forecast
of further court action next week
marked Virginia's troubled school
front yesterday.
Amid these developments there
was no further word from Gov. J.
Lindsay Almond Jr. on what next
moves he has in mind to try to
reopen nine closed schools - six,
at Norfolk, two at Charlottesville
and Warren County High School
at Front Royal, Va.
The inability of the Tidewater
Educational Foundation in Nor-
folk to sign up a single public
school teacher led to the suspen-
sion of the operation which, the
foundation claimed, had regis-
tered 2,630 pupils.'
James G. Martin IV, foundation
president, called the attitude of
the teachers "inscrutable." As a
result of the lack of teachers he
said the foundation would cease
enrollment and return the tuition
fees already paid.
Only about $450 in $20 fees had
actually been paid, he said.

label was lifted today from millions
of military papers dating back to
Jan. 1, 1946 and beyond.
This was at the order of Secre-

it drew praise from Chairman
John E. Moss (D-Calif.) of a
House subcommittee which has
been working 'against unneeded

now may be freely seen deal with
things that happened before Amer-
ica entered World War I in 1917.

The mass declassification order
