Record Crowds See
Apple Blossom Fete
By CARL IRVING
•Ur BUff Cormpoodent
WINCHESTER, Va., May 2.
Clear skies today lured record
crowds to the opening of the
30th annual Shenandoah Apple
Blossom Festival. The celebra
tion continues through tomor
row.
The festival queen, an Eng
lish aristocrat from Winchester.
England, opened the observance
this morning by leading her escort
of American college princesses
through the one remaining
blossoming apple orchard.
But only the apple blossoms
had almost disappeared from the
verdant Shenandoah Valley.
Winchester and the surrounding
farm country are covered with
red buds, pink and white dog
wood, lilac, wisteria and Japa
nese cherry blooms, providing set
and color for the occasion.
The coronation of Miss Anne
Denise Doughty-Tichborne as
Jueen Shenandoah XXX was to
take place at 2:30 p.m. (EST)
today in the Handley High
School athletic bowl. A half
hour later, the Handley students
were to present a pageant cele
brating spring and American
history.
Record Number Housed
The national attention fo
cused on the Old Dominion
through the Jamestown Festival
this year was one reason officials
here expected crowds to exceed
the previous record of 200,000.
Perfect weather yesterday, with
a high of 84, filled the area’s 37
motels and four hotels and hun
dreds of homes. Housing officials
estimated 70,000 persons were
accommodated last night, a rec
ord for the festival eve. But
Mrs. De Febio to Contest
Sons' Ouster in Court
Attorneys for Mrs Theo T. De Febio today prepared to under
take a legal fight to get her two sons back In Fairfax County
schools.
In refusing again yesterday to sign Virginia's new pupil
placement applications for the boys, Mrs. De Febio instructed
Attorneys Arthur I. Kassablan and Douglas Adams. Jr., to go
to court to challenge the State’s
right to keep her sons out of
school.
Mr. Kassablan said he was
thinking of going straight to the
Virginia Supreme Court of Ap
peals with a petition for a man
damus to order readmission of
the suspended boys.
Nicky. 9. and Teddy, 14, were
dropped from Fairfax County
schools because their mother
refused to sign placement appli
cations. She said she objected
to signing them because she
considered the placement law
a scheme to thwart the Su
preme Court school desegrega
tion decision.
Three Grounds Cited
Mr Kassablan said at least
three grounds for upsetting the
placement law would be cited in
any legal action taken to win
readmlsston of the De Febio
boys:
1. That the Virginia constitu
tion grants the power of school
supervision to localities and the
Legislature has attempted ille
gally to take that power from
the localities and put It in the
hands of the State pupil place
ment board.
2. There is a conflict between
the State’s oompulsory attend
ance law, which requires parents
to send their children to school,
and the placement regulation,
which keeps children out of
school If placement applications
are not signed.
3. The placement law is a vio
lation of the United States Con
stitution for reasons cited by
Judge Walter Hoffman in the
Norfolk and Newport News de
segregation cases. Judge Hoff
man In January ruled the place
ment law unconstitutionsl be
cause he said it was part of a
kAslatlva program the state
OmsSaS to circumvent the Su- 1
officials vowed to provide shelter
through tomorrow for all.
The weather man promised
fair weather again tomorrow,
with somewhat cooler temper
atures.
| A total of 246 firemen’s units
were to parade today, starting at
6 p.m. All Winchester and Fred
erick fire-fighting equipment
will be on display. There will be
more than 100 pieces of equip
ment from West Virginia, Mary
land and Pennsylvania. A fire
works display at 8 p.m. will be
followed by a square dance at
9 p.m. in the armory. The queen
will be honored at a ball starting
at 10 p.m. in the Apple Palace.
First Trip for Queen
Miss Doughty-Tichborne, 19,
arrived yesterday with a State
police escort at the George
Washington Hotel. The gray
eyed, raven-haired festival queen,
on her first trip to this country,
compared the Virginia country
side to that of her home county
of Hampshire.
Work continued on the 54
floats entered in the grand pa
rade starting at 1 p.m. tomor
row. Thirteen of them are being
readied by Washington area
men, William Law and Arl Har
grove. The partners and a crew
of six have been working 12
hours a day for the last three
weeks preparing their entries.
A total of 65 bands will par
ticipate in the parade tomorrow,
including two from Florida.
James Cagney of the movies will
be parade marshal.
Local beauties will compete to
morrow, starting at 12:30 p.m„
for the title of Miss Shenandoah.
A princesses’ ball at the Apple
Palace will conclude the festiv
ities tomorrow.

preme Court decision. His ruling
is being appealed by the State.
Refers to Threats’
Mrs. De Febio yesterday reject
ed a proposal by the Virginia
Pupil Placement Board that she
sign the placement applications
"under protest.”
She said she reached the de
cision In spite of threats that
her children may be taken from
her. and declared “no letter of
protest can encompass the
breadth and depth of my con
science.”
She said she would take steps
to have the boys tutored at home
or enrolled In private schools
while her attorneys fight for
their readmission to public
schools.
Mrs. De Febio declined to elab
orate on the statement that
threats had been made to take
the boys from her. They were
taken away from her In North
Carolina years ago when shei
refujpd to send them to public
schools, but were given back
after she agreed they should go
to school.
No Further Action Set
A check of Fairfax officials
Indicated there are no Immediate
plans for any further action in
the De Febio case. Assistant
School Supt. George Pope said
the school board office had no
plans at this time to take any
action against Mrs. De Febio.
Miss Frances Duffey, welfare
director, said her office had not
, been called in on the case at all. |
Commonwealth's Attorney Rob
ert C. Fitzgerald said he did not
plan to do anything unless he
was asked to by school or wel
fare authorities.
School Supt. W. T. Woodson
said he knew of no threats to
Mrs. De Febio about loss of her
children, but thought someone
mmht have recalled what oc
cur ed in North Carolina.

He Quit Because
Os Race Views
The Rev. Dr. Frederick H.
Olert today acknowledged that
dissension over racial views
prompted his surprise resigna
tion as pastor of Richmond's
Second Presbyterian Church.
The noted clergyman, who Is
president of the Virginia Council;
of Churches, said he decided to
leave Richmond because “I be
lieve in basic civil and religious
freedom.”
Dr. Olert was head of the
Richmond Ministers Association
last Januray when it adopted a
“Statement of Conviction on
Race.” The document criticized
Gov. Stanley and the Virginia
General Assembly for "exceed
ingly inept” handling of the ra
cial problem.
Dr. Olert said he had been
criticized by some members of:
his congregation because of the
statement.
“1 could stay here and weather
this storm,” he said, “but I wish
to do nothing to hurt this
church .”
Dr. Olert said two articles ap
pearing in the current issue of
the Christian Century expressed
how he felt about racial prob
lems. One article, by Roy C. De
Lamotte, a Tennessee Methodist
minister, is entitled “Southern
Liberal: Prophet or Apostate."
It states: “One waits fruitlessly
for a ‘Christian Manifesto’ draw
ing some line beneath which no
Christian dare sink in the hys
teria of white reaction, or for
news that ‘Christians' Councils'
are forming to combat the
'slanders and covert violence of
white supremacy.”
The other article he cited is
entitled "Taking the Hard
Stand.” It deals with the Vir
ginia Chamber of Commerce's
dinner for distinguished Vir
ginians, to which at least six
Negroes inadvertently were in
vited and later asked to send
back their invitations.
Dr. Olert will move to the Cen
tral Presbyterian Church in
Kansas City, Mo.
U. of Md. Chief Leaves
On Overseas Inspection
Dr. Wilson H. Elkins, president
of the University of Maryland,
left yesterday on a 26-day in
spection trip of the university’s
Overseas Program in Europe.
He boarded a plane at National
Airport on the first leg of the trip
which will be climaxed May 25
with the program's commence
ment exercises at Heidelberg.
Germany. Gov. McKeldin of
Maryland already has departed
ion a trip which will take him to
I Heidelberg also.
