boycott over busing
BOSTON (A - Court-ordered busing to integrate the oldest
public school system in America begins today in Boston. White
parents plan a large-scale boycott reminiscent of resistence in
About 18,200 of the city's 94,000 public school pupils will be
bused for the first time as part of an integration plan ordered
in June by U.S. District Court Judge Arthur Garrity. He said
the School Committee had "intentionally segregated schools at
all levels" and, in effect, ran a dual school system for its
36,000 nonwhite pupils.
BUSING opposition has flourished in the city's close-knit, white
neighborhoods, South Boston, Hyde Park and Dorchester. Boy-
cott leaders predict 40 per cent of the school system's pupils will
stay out Thursday. School officials will not predict the size of
the anticipated boycott.
"I'm going along with the people," said Mary Binda, a
South Boston mother who said yesterday she would keep her
three school boys home. "What is a mother supposed to do?
Am I supposed to tell my kids they can't go across the street
Black community leaders said they expect many black young-
sters to ride buses to predominantly white schools today, but
others would stay home.
POSTPONEMENTS have been arranged for all court proceed-
ings at which police officers were scheduled to appear today
and tomorrow, an unprecedented action in Boston. In addition,
police officials said men will be brought in on overtime to
assist in monitoring school integration activities.
Despite the city's Cradle of Liberty nickname and Liberal
reputation, antibusing feeling runs strong in Boston's Irish, Ital-
ian and other ethnic neighborhoods. Sen. Edward Kennedy, long
a local hero, was booed and splattered with a tomato when he
attempted to explain his probusing stand at a demonstration
Mayor Kevin White that night called for peaceful implementa-
tion of the integration plan. In a televised "appeal to reason,"
White promised "swift and sure punishment" for anyone who
resorts to violence.
