13 More Negroes To Attend Local Schools
Applications for admitting 13 Negro children to St. Augustine High School, Ketterlinus Junior High,
Fullerwood School and orange Street School were approved by the St. Johns county Board of
Public instruction at a special meeting yesterday afternoon.

Two other applications were turned down because the board felt the Negro applicants lived too far
from the schools they wished to enter and a transportation problem would be involved.

The approval of the 13 applications will bring to 19 the number of Negro children eligible to enter the
four mentioned public schools. There are six for Ketterlinus Junior High, five Orange Street School;
seven for Fullerwood School and one for St. Augustine High. Six other Negro children attended
Fullerwood and Ketterlinus Junior High last year without serious incident.

The new pupils whose applications for admittance under the school placement act were listed by the
school board as follows: Barbara Jean Eubanks, 82 Weeden Street, a transfer from St. Benedict
€™s Catholic School to the ninth grate at St. Augustine High School.

Transfers from Negro elementary schools to the eighth grade at Ketterlinus Junior High: Christopher
White, 8 Bernard Street, Marcellous Brown, 126 Bravo Street, Frank Anthony Moss, 83 Lovett
Street; Janet Elizabeth White, 43 Bernard Street; and Janice Marie White, 43 Bernard Street.

Brown, 41 Bernard Street, fourth grade; Michael Edward Brown, 41 Bernard Street, third grade;
Alfred Eugene Davis, 33 Bernard St., sixth grade; Rose Etta Washington, 33 Bernard Street, fourth
