TVhcre can I find a seven-day menu plan for a dlnbctip, including breakfast, lunch and dinner'.1 I've looked every- where. A. Hemlrick Hospital Dielary Dcpt. offers its services free lo anyone on an out-patient basis. The only hilch is you must have a physician's referral or order. Other than Hendrick, there's no place you can get a meal plan since (here's 110 set diabetic riicl they're individualized according to each patient.

Even when 1 was In high school we were (aught the inollo of your paper.. .so.. .wllhoLl or with offense lo friend or foes, please skclch our Iwo schools exaclly as they go answer- Ing -these questions: Why Is only one of Ihe Iwo public high schools in Abilene truly integrated? How Is It possible for Ihe unlntegratcd school to receive federal funds? I under- stood Ihcse funds were withheld without full Integration. W Ii y are minority groups represented as cheerleaders anil pep squad leaders at Abilene High and not al Cooper? Who makes Ihcsc rules? Why aren't they the same al hnlh schools? Was an observance held at Cooper for "Black History If not, why not? I think The Reporter-News owes II to the people of Abilene lo tell II like II Is Ihls once. A. We'll do our best. Assl. School Superin- tendent Dr. Harold Brinson says we don't have any schools, elementary or secondary, thai are not fully desegregated. Of. course, Ihe number of minority group students in each school isn't equal lo the number of whiles bul this would be impossible since there aren't as many minority group stu- dents in Abilene as there are white students. Brinson says minority group students are attending every school in the system though there arc more al some schools than others. Cooper has 110 blacks, Abilene High lias 181. 3.06 per cent of Ihe Abilene High .stu- dent body is black; 5.5C per cent of Cooper sludcnl body is black. Brinson says he isn'l required to equalize Hip number of blacks and whiles at each school, nor is he required lo equalize the number of blacks between Abilene High and Cooper At Ibis lime, Abilene schools are in full compliance wilh the law. However, Iwo Abilene schools, l.ocnsl and Fannin elemen- tary, have a minority enrollment nf more (ban' (JO per cent and some changes may have lo be made at these schools, under terms of a 1070 Tyler Federal Court ruling, to keep them out of the "racially identifia- ble" school category. Brinson says the school administration doesn't try to make each school a mirror Image of the other vocalional and olhcr programs arc nol the same in all schools because each school has different needs. If a problem develops at one school, the administration al thai school tries lo deal wilh it. A serious problem developed at Abilene lligl) over cheerleader elections so the administration at Ihe school changed rules for cheerleader elections making it easier for a black student to be elected. Bul this docsn'l mean thai Cooper and every other school has lo do the same, says Brin- son. No black history program, as such, was held nl Cooper with all the student body together in the auditorium but black history week was observed in the classrooms by Hie teachers. English classes were taken to (he auditorium for films on black history during Ihe week and, particularly in social sciences, history and English classes, different areas of history were brought oul thai were specif- ically connected wilh blacks. Black History Week was observed cssen- lially the same al Abilene High, Cooper and all secondary schools, with Icachcrs placing .special emphasis on citizens of black heri- tage who had made a contribution to our country.
