About 300 Ann Arbor citizens
last night voiced their opinions
on the proposed closing of Jones
School due to "racial imbalance."
Their overwhelming verdict was
to discontinue operation of the
school and transport its 200 stu-
dents by bus to other schools in
The open hearing was held at
the school, 401 N. Division. Its
purpose was to test citizen senti-
ment on the recommendation for
closing made in June by a citi-
zen's group. The group was asked
by the Board of Education to
look into all the city's schools.
Argument favoring the school
closing followed two basic lines.
The first, voiced mainly by in-
dividual citizens, was that children
attending the school receive a poor
education. Various citizens men-
tioned "incompetent" teachers,
low academic records achieved by
their children, racial prejudice and
the rejection of a child termed in-
capable of learning by one Jones
The second attack came mainly
from spokesmen for local civil
rights groups. They stressed the
effect of the school's "de facto
A statement by the local chap-
ter of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People contended that "in a so-
ciety dominated by white people,
the welfare of Negro children
forced to live and learn in a seg-
10 IAJY IN omine
regated environment will be ad-
versely affected. . . Nothing short
of full integration as equals can
reach into the hearts and minds
of Negro youngsters in a way
which will repair the damage seg-
regation has already done to their
sense of personal dignity and their
motivation to succeed and de-
velop their capacities."
Jones school has a three-to-one
ratio of Negroes to whites, ac-
cording to the citizen's report.
A spokesman for the Washtenaw
County Conservatives, George F.
Lemble, delivered a statement
against closing of the school. He
said the closing is "a most radical
departure from normal procedure"
and would involve "damaging"
psychological effects upon chil-
dren who would attend schools
outside their neighborhoods.
Other advocates of closingmen-
tioned related economic factors-
high- rents in Ann Arbor and the
inability of Negroes to move out
of the Jones school district. These
conditions, they contended, made
it even more important that chil-
dren in the Jones area be bussed to
other city schools if citizens de-
sired true integration.
And 26 parents with children
in the Pattengill school felt that
their children were being deprived
of the opportunity to attend schooll
with Negroes because there are
no Negroes at Pattengill. Only at!
an early age can children be
adequately prepared for life in
an integrated society, they said.
One citizen lauded the neighbor-
hood school concept and claimed
that closing Jones school would
destroy the identification and
loyalty which close-by schools af-
ford. But a second citizen thought
it would be beneficial to break
down neighborhood lines in order
to achieve city-wide integration.
