Debate Plans Fold;
Disagree on Blame
WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. John F. Kennedy and Vice-President
Richard M. Nixon sought votes in suburbs of two of the nation's big-
gest cities yesterday while chances of bringing them together for a
fifth debate all but disappeared.
Each side attempted to saddle the other with responsibility for
the collapse of negotiations for one more face-to-face encounter which
the nation could see and hear via television and radio.
Nixon's representative withdrew from the Washington talks, say-
ing the Democrats had violated agreed procedures three times. He
denfanded that Kennedy apologize for charging bad faith in the
negotiations and withdraw his
deadline for an agreement on fin-
K hl hhv al terms.
Kennedy retorted from Phila-
delphia that Nixon is free to de-

Relocation of 315 elementary
school pupils in northwest De-
troit to relieve overcrowding at
two schools will begin tomorrow
in the midst of what appears to
be a three-way conflict.
School Superintendent Samuel
M. Brownell recently ordered 315
Negro children from the over-
crowded Brady and McKerrow
schools to transfer to Guest, Mon-
nier and Noble elementary schools
tomorrow. Guest and Monnier
are all-white, and Noble has a
small percentage of Negro stu-
dents. His action follows Detroit
school board policy of transfer-
ring students to the nearest
schools with vacancies on a strict-
ly non-racial basis.
At a mass meeting Tuesday
night at Temple Baptist Church
a group of 2,000 parents and in-
terested adults decided to keep
their children out of school Fri-
day, Monday and Tuesday in pro-
test. Robert P. Williams, spokes-
man for the group, says that the
main issue in the conflict is that
children are not getting equal ed-
ucational rights because the Board
of Education is not doing its job.
"We do not protest any chil-
dren going to school in their own
area, regardless of their race. But
they have taken out the Guest
school eighth grade and are now
bringing in students from another
area because they say there is
room at Guest."
Williams' group is also circulat-
ing petitions for the reall of all
seven board members. "The recall
is most important. The boycott
is merely a demonstration of our
feelings to emphasize our cam-
paign for a recall election," he
School board member Remus
Robinson did not feel that the
protest was as massive or as or-
ganized as it appeared Friday,
when more than 1,200 children
were absent from the three
schools. "Some parents might
have kept their children home be-
cause they didn't know what a
few people might do. We have no
way of knowing how substantial
or how valid the feeling is, but
we do know that some of it has
been generated by people who do
not have any children in school."
Three Highland Park Junior
College students picketed Friday
morning against the parents' boy-
cott at Guest School. They will
continue their action as long as
the parents' group does.
Williams said it would be dif-
ficult to tell what portion, if any,
of the people protesting the
board's action were doing so for
reasons of personal prejudice. He
said that his committee had had
three or four spokesmen out of
15 parents present at a meeting
with Brownell Tuesday before the

A special AADAC committee will distribute some 2,000 of the
leaflets today concentrating primarily in Negro neighborhoods, but

'VOICE OF CONSCIENCE':
Josh.White Sings of Politics, Loneliness
By JUDITH SATTLER
"A folk singer is the voice of conscience," said singer Josh White.
White appeared last night before an enthusiastic audience in
the Ann Arbor High School auditorium.
"As the voice of conscience," he said, "I sing of the troubles,
trials and tribulations, and the joys of the people. I sing what I see."
Since he is singing what he sees, White sings about political and
social problems as well as love and loneliness and other traditional
folk song subjects.
His program included a song about the raceless-ness of blood
plasma, and about Franklin Roosevelt, "The Man Who Couldn't Walk
