Transcript school PRINA 1 Righl now. there are 50 per cent more Negro pupils than there are whites. Is that correct? There are 64,000 to 41,000, something like that. CORNING: I'm not following your mathematics exactly. ll is ()] per cent of the total. PRINA I Yes, Pin just saying .">0 per cent more. Ill KITH.II: Mr. Prina is saying if there are 100.000 students and 61,000 of the 100.000 would he Negro Students, there would he hut 10,000 while students, and therefore there would he approximately 50 per rent more colored students than white students. i 0RNING: 1 should have brought the head of the mathematics departmenl along with me. HURLEIGH: Normally, I do not do so well at mathematics, believe me, Mr. Superintendent. PRINAl Well, that was all I Itad on the percentages, Bob. HURLEIGH: Well, I would like to carry that a hit beyond this point. Dr. Corning, if we have this Increase over the next five or ten years, anil we reach the point that we have only 2."> per cent of the student population will we not at that lime require more Negro teacher- and staff officers? Would it not he out of balance and could not there then he the charge made by some that too many of the Negro school students would he taught by white teachers? CORNING: Well, thai would be a situation lhat we Couldn't control. There would nol be a need for additional teachers or sialT officers unless the total enrollment would '-■row very measurably. In other words, the balance between the two wouldn't change the need for the number of teachers. The number of teachers would be dependent upon lhe total number of children involved, whether they be while or colored. PRIN \: At any rate, le-l basis, wouldn't qualifications , , . it would be decided simply on the it? Of who was going to teach. ' .(MINING: Yes, examinations and all that— KOGKKS: Hut isn't ii true. Dr. Corning, that even before Integration began, we had 300 more Negro teacher- than white in the Washington school sy>lem? CORNING: That is correct. I'KINA: I was rather taken with your remarks. Dr. Corning, that Integration has not dropped ihe level of teaching at all in the schools in the District of Columbia. Do you contend that wilh the mixed classes that it has been possible lo continue the same progress Ui these classes? CORNING: With those same differences existing, before integration, Washington's percentage of students going to college and succeeding therein, establishing fine records, was higher than the national average. In spile of the fact thai even before integration we had wide differences of performance and abilily in the schools, both in the colored and the white. HURLEIGH: Our board of judges has selected the following prize-winning questions submitted hy our listener- for this broadcast, "Dr. Corning, do you think that school integration will bring back the private school movemenl of the early Colonial era?" CORNING: 1 do nol think so judging from present trends. because private and parochial school enrollments within the District of Columbia have nol increased to anv verv great extent during our first year oi experience with integration, ■ind, we would expect probably as much migration to the private school and lhe parochial school during the first year of operation as at any time. Ill Kl 114*11: And now for the second question: "Will integration cause more disciplinary problems in the schools than already exist?" CORNING: The "already exisls" confuses me a bil because we have integration at the moment. However, I think the answer would be thai until people have had opportunity to make adjustments to entirely new situations, situations they have nol experienced before, there probably w ill be more difficulty along the behavior line. HURLEIGH: Here is the third question: "Will not the standard and quality of education in lhe South eventually be raised by desegregation since the states will avoid the cosily burden of duplicating school faculties for both while and Negroes? * 0RNING: I'm sorry, sir, bul I'm not in the position at all to commenl upon the conditions in the South. I only know the problems here in Washington. HURLEIGH: Do you find it happening here in the District of Columbia? CORNING: No, I would say not. cent. Can y'j rs? That WOM •gregation at-1 in ami wheth«'r Facts on Communism Mere are some facta ;ui<l opinions for Americana to iliink on as llicy view the Communis! leaders in their unnatural pose of friendliness: From a speech by William Randolph Hearst, Jr., lo the National Press Clul> in Washington, upon his return recently from interviews with the Ked leaders in the Kremlin ai Moscow: "These men ean he ruthless. They have heen merciless. Certainly no humanitarian considerations would cause them to hesitate to wipe us out if ihey thought ihey could gel away with it. They believe the end justifies the means. Ami for them, the end remains Communist domination of the world. Khrusehev said so to me quite frankly. He said they hoped lo gain lhe upper hand one day ■ . . "We heard Molotov tell the Supreme Soviel (lhe legislative body) and I quote him: "World civilization will not perish no matter how much il mighl suffer from a new war.' He predicted lhal whal would perish would he our way of life. Thai should make it clear enough to us that the Soviet leadership does not rule out war because of ils possible effeel on civilization. It rules it out for the present simply because of the respect it has for the effectiveness of America's counter-offensive power."
