Integration Peaceful Here For Second School Year With integration successfully completed here last year, the new school term began peacefully, un¬ like the last fall term. David Klinkose of the Human Relations office states that he no¬ tices a lack of tension and that all students from freshmen to se¬ niors calmly went to class. Last year, however, Klinkose reports a great deal of confusion as to where everyone was supposed to be. Last fall, Klinkose relates, ma¬ ny angry parents called the Hu¬ man Relations office saying that they refused to send their chil¬ dren to Attucks. This year, he says, that didn't happen. Students also noticed the dif¬ ference from last fall to this. Sen¬ ior Anthony Mitchell states, "Last year nobody knew each other or knew about each other. But this year it's different; everyone is a lot friendlier to each other." Asked what the hopes for the school will be next fall when ev¬ ery class will be fully integrated, Klinkose predicted, "We hope to have the best school in the city."
