3 Meetings to Discuss
Solution to Parents'
Boycott of 2 Schools

Three meetings are planned to
day and tomorrow in connection
with the continuing parent boycott
of Blow and Webb Schools, which
are used as annexes to the Browne
Junior High School.
A group of parents who have been
keeping their children out of the
annexes as a protest against trans
fer of the schools from white to
colored pupils, will meet at 3 o'clock
today at the Jones Memorial Church,
Forty-fourth street and Benning
road N.E., to discuss further action.
A meeting at the same hour has
been called by the National Negro
Council, headed by Edgar C. Brown,
to complete plans for a proposed
city-wide walkout of colored stu
dents tomorrow morning. This group
will meet at the Metropolitan Bap
tist Church.
Reconsideration Asked.
The parents’ group is confining its
activities to the Browne-Blow-Webb
the group, and is not interested in
the city-wide walkout. The parents
want, the Board of Education to re
■ - consider its action and either place
Browne back on part-time classes
without using Blow and Webb, or
accept one of several alternative
. suggestions which involve the trans
fer to colored pupils of either Eliot
Junior High School or the Eastern
High School.
Mr. Brown and his supporters
have extended their efforts to make
the squabble with the school board
a fight against segregation. - The
parents' group desires to confine the
issue to the transfer of what they
term old and inadequate schools to
their children.
The meeting at the Metropolitan
Baptist Church will discuss plans
for placing picket lines around all
colored schools during the proposed
strike, according to Mr. Brown.
Conference Tomorrow.
The third meeting is scheduled
between representatives of the
Browne Junior High School Parent
Teacher Association and the Board
of Education at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow.
This meeting is a “conference, not a
hearing,” board members empha
Meanwhile, the District chapter
of the National Association for the
Arlvonrpmpnt nf P.nlnrpH Ppnnlp
charged that confidence in the
Board of Education’s promises that
the Blow and Webb transfers would
be temporary is not borne out by
past practices. The NAACP stated
that the school board has operated
a sub-standard junior high school
program since 1942 in an “obso
lete elementary building" used as an
annex to the Terrell Junior High

Students Leave Annapolis
For Christmas Holidays
By the Allocated Press
ANNAPOLIS, Dec. 20.—Christmas
vacation began today for the 2,850
Naval Academy midshipmen, but
about 60 stayed behind when the
students stormed out of Bancroft
Hall at noon to start homeward
The lingering middies will spend
the holidays in the academy’s huge
dormitory for one of two reasons:
I They want to catch up on studies.
I or they have no other place to go
in the 12-day vacation period.
Most of those without other places
to go are from distant points, some
I with homes as far away as Honolulu
and the Canal Zone.
The others decided to remain for
extra instruction periods offered by
the faculty. Their choice was vol
untary, as the Academy discarded
this year its policy of retaining mid
shipmen whose marks have not
been up to par.
