Where the Will Is There

May 1956
New Republic;5/28/56, Vol. 134 Issue 22, p4
This article reports that the people of Kentucky are accepting integration very well indeed, wrote State Superintendent of Public Instruction Robert R. Martin. In a letter to Representative Stewart L. Udall, sponsor of a constructive new integration measure in the House, Martin cited the case of Adair County. Superintendent Martin reflects influential Border State support for Udall's legislation, which may prove to be a significant break-through in federal aid to education. The bill has been so drafted that it can be enacted as separate legislation, or as an amendment to pending legislation to extend the Federal Impact Program, under which school systems overburdened by federal installations are given federal aid.
