Transcript • 1 • - 6 - The Board of School Trustees in an effort to comply with state law, as well as federal law, has invited the qualified voters of the School District to petition for a referendum election on the question of whether any desegregation should be accomplished in the Houston Independent School District. Such an election is required by state law before segregation and cannot be called without a petition signed by 20 per cent of the qualified voters. The statute requiring this election has not been ruled unconstitutional by any court, state or federal. The statute provides that if desegregation is accomplished without such an election, state financial support for the educational program will be withdrawn. Such withdrawal of state financial support would be disastrous to the Houston Independent Schools. We have asked the public to petition the Board for the referendum election in an orderly and statutory way. One of the best and first things that public-spirited citizens can do today is to encourage the signing of petitions to call this referendum election. One of the best things that public- spirited citizens can do in the future is to encourage a level-headed, moderate, unemotional approach to this difficult problem that has so much to do with the future of our great City of Houston. It is important not only to maintain a level head in the face of serious emotional complications, but also to encourage others to be courteous and considerate and unprejudiced in the face of these problems. The basic need is that all boys and girls need a sound education. Let us cooperate and keep calm in all circumstances, so that the effective educational processes of the Houston Independent School District will not be interrupted or impaired.
