Transcript o put his "■• :ll eaiTlimiltia' case, and ii si ihe' racial granted. Bul) ml they also- interview I interested i" we have n" ily a handful ecause school PRINAi Hiidit now. ihere arc al) per cent more N'epro pupils than there eire whites. Is that correct? There are 64,000 io 11.(Hill, something like that. CORNING: I'm not following your mathematics exactly, li is 61 per it ni of the total. PRINAi Yes, I'm just saying ->0 per cent more. HURLEIGHl Mr. I'rina ir. saving if there are 100.000 Undents ami 61,000 of the 100.000 would he Negro students, there would he bul 10.000 white students, ami therefore there would be approximately 50 per cent more colored .indents than white students. ( 0RNING: I should have brought the head of the mathematics department alon<r with me. HURLEIGH! Normally, I do not do so well at mathematics, believe me, Mr. Superintendent. 1'KINA: Well, that was all I had on the percentages, It.eh. HURLEIGH: Well. I would like to carry that a hit beyond this point, lir. Corning, if we have this increase <>,cr the nexl five or ten years, emd we reach the poinl thai we have only 25 per rent of lhe student population will we not at that lime require more Negro teach* er. emd staff officers? Would il not be oul of balance and eould not there then he the charge made hy some that too mein, of the Negro sehool students would he taught hy white teachers? CORNING: We'll, lhal would be a siluation lhal we' couldn't control. There would nol lie a need for additional teachers or sialT officers unless ihe total enrollment would grow very measurably. In other words, the balance between the two wouldn't change the need lor lhe number <il teachers. The number of teachers woulel In' dependent upon the total number of children involved, whether ihey he while or eolored. I-KINA: e\l any reite, it would he decided simply on the te.t heisis, wouldn't it? (If who was going to teach, qualifications • . . 1 0RNING: Yes, examinations and all that— ItiM.l Il's: Hut isn't it true. Dr. Corning, that even before integration began, we' heul H0O more Negro teaeliers than while in the Washington school system? CORNING: That is correct. IMUNA: I was rather taken with your remarks, l>r. Corning, that integration has not dropped the level of teaching al eill in tin- Bchools in the Districl of Columbia. Do you contend that with the mixed classes that it ha. heen possible lo continue the' same progress in these classes? CORNING: With those same differences existing, hefore integration, Washington's percentage of students going to college and succeeding therein, establishing line records, weis higher than Ihe national average. In spite of the fact thai even before integration we heul wide differences nf performance and ability in lln- schools, both in lhe colored and the white. HURLEIGH: Our board of judges has selected the following prize-winning questions submitted hy our listeners for this broadcast, "Dr. Corning, do yon think that school integration will bring back the private school movement of the carl. Colonial era?" CORNING: I do nol think se. judging from presenl hi'nds, because private and parochial sehool enrollments within the District of Columbia have nol increased to emv verv great extent during our first year of experience wilh integration. Ami. we would expect probably as much migration to lhe private Bchool and Ihe parochial school during the first vear nl operation eis ;il any time'. HI KI.KH.Il: Ami now for the second question! "Will integration cause more disciplinary problems in the schools than already exist?" CORNING: The "already exists" confuses me a hit l>e- cause we have integration at the moment. However, I Ihink the answer would he lhal until people have heul opportunity lo make adjustments lo entirely new situations, situations they have not experienced lofore. there probably will be more difficulty along the behavior line, HURLEIGH] Here is the third question! "Will not the standard ami quality of education in llu- South eventually he reused hy desegregation since lhe states will avoid lhe costly burden of duplicating school facilities for both while and Negroes? CORNING: I'm sorry, sir, hui I'm not in lhe position al all lo comment upon the conditions in the South. I only know ih.' problems hen' in Washington. Ill KI.KH.Il: Do you find it happening here in the District of Columbia? CORNING: No, I would say nol. Can v«>; «? That w oul'! Facts on Communism Here ate some fails anil opinions for Americans lo think on as ihey view the Communist leaders in llieir unnatural pose of friendliness: From a speech by William Randolph Hearst, Jr., to Ihe National Press Club in Washington, upon his return recently from inlet-views with the I.oil leaders in the Kremlin al Moscow: "These men can be ruthless. They have been merciless. Certainly no humanitarian considerations would cause them lo hesitate lo wipe us oul if they thoughl they could gel away with it. They believe lhe end justifies llie means, \iitl lor them, the end remains Communisl domination of lhe world. Khriisehev said so lo me quite frankly. He said ihey hoped to gain llie upper band one day... "We heard Molotov tell lhe Supreme Soviel (the legislative body) and I quote him: ■World civilization will nol perish no mailer how much il mighl suffer from a new war.* He predicted thai whal would perish would be our way of life. Thai should make it clear enough In us that lhe Soviel leadership does nol rule oul war because of ils possible effect on civilization. It rules il out for the present simply because of the respeel il has for the effectiveness of America's counter-offensive power."
