Metropolitan Plan May Close School Attucks will close in 1977 if a new metropolitan school desegre¬ gation plan is put into effect. The plan, presented by school officials, calls for closing 26 ele¬ mentary schools and three high schools. If adopted, Shortridge would close next September, and Harry E. Wood High School the following year. This means that as many as 11,000 pupils may be bused to suburban schools and 2000 trans¬ ferred within the city system. If this happens, tb3 IPS will lose nearly 15,000 students in the next lour years. Suburban systems which would receive city students include Eagle-Union, Carmel-Clay, Ham¬ ilton Southeastern, Mt. Vernon, Southern Hancock, Avon Brownsburg, Plainfield, Hend- dricks County, Center Grove, Clark-Pleasant, Greenwood, De¬ catur, Franklin, Lawrence, Perry- Pike, Warren, Wayne, Beech Grove, Speedway, Mooresville and Northwest Shelby County. However, the state legislature has just passed a resolution call¬ ing for a Constitutional Con¬ vention to adopt an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning busing for racial balance. Mr. David Klinkose, human re¬ lations specialist here, points out that the school board*s plan may not go into effect, that it is still TIGER TOPICS Vol. 6, No. 4- -Crispus Attucks High School, Indianapolis, Ind. February* 1974 Science Teacher, Student Visit Bell Laboratories in New Jersey Senior Gary Stamatkin and science department head R. Cae¬ sar Johnson spent Feb. 4-5 as guests of the Bell System in Mur¬ ray Hill, N.J. All expenses were paid by Bell. The program of bringing high school students and teachers for a two-day visit of the labs began in 1960 and schools throughout the country partici¬ pate. The visits aim to give students and teachers an understanding of the work done by scientists and engineers in large research organizations. It also hopes to give the visit¬ ors a knowledge of the tools and procedures used by the scien¬ tists and the environment that fosters significant teichnological achievements. According to Mr. Johnson, the programs hope to bridge a gap between science classes and re¬ search laboratories. And of course, the program is also designed to encourage stu¬ dents to continue the study of science and engineering by em¬ phasizing the challenges these fields offer, as well as the social and economic rewards of the fields. — Photo by Larry Cowin FBINCIPAL EARL DONALSON welcomes Mr. Caesar Johnson and Gary Stamatkin after trip to New Jersey.

However, he notes that the board must comply with the court order regarding inte¬ gration. He believes integrating all the schools in Marion County is wise and just. "Races learn from each other," he says, "and this can't happen without some kind of integration. Whether or not the numbers in- vdlved here are corract, I don't know. It takes a lot of study to determine how many students should be moved to effect inte¬ gration/' KingArthur's Knights, Ladles to Live Again As Camelot Performed King Arthur's Camelot will come to life on the stage as mu¬ sicians and actors perform Ler- ner and Lowe's musical on April 15-16. Taking lead singing roles are Reggie Thomas as King Arthur, Denise Senter as Guenevere and Chester Ealy as Lancelot.

NCA Committee Will Evaluate, Rate Total School Here Self-evaluation is what the school has been going through during the last se¬ mester, as booklets contain¬ ing **E V a 1 u a t i v e Criteria'* have been filled out for the North Central Association Evaluation Committee which will be here March 12-15. The booklets, filled with de- tailed information about the school will guide the commit¬ tee as they study the school to determine whether or not its stan¬ dards are high enough to contin¬ ue as an accredited school. North Central committees exa¬ mine each accredited school every seven years, and no two commit¬ tees for different schools are the same. After studying the booklets and what they see while they are here, the committee will write a re¬ port and send a copy to the school and one to the state NCA commit¬ tee in Bloomington, This report will make recom¬ mendations to the school concern¬ ing many different areas, includ¬ ing curriculum, student activities and many other facets of school life.

Mr. Christ Christoff, principal of Lew Wallace High School in Gary is chairman of the commit¬ tee which will be evaluating CAHS. Surprise Party Honors Miss Cruser COE students surprised their coordinator, Miss Pat Cruser, with a birthday party on January 26. The students planned the party to express their appreciation for everything she had done for them. They presented Miss Cruser with a plaque and her mother, with¬ out whose help they could not have planned the surprise, with a corsage. COE members agree that the party was the biggest success of the group's gatherings this year. Most memorable was the moment she walked through the door to be met with a hearty "Surprise" that brought tears to her eyes.
