By ELI GREEN, Deputy. Pursuant to Article 1307, Revised Civil Statutes of Texas, 1925. as amended, notice is hereby given that C. A. Barnett, Eugene Ford and Kathleen Barnett intend to incorporate and as of October 12, 1960 to be incorporated under the name of Barnett Chevrolet-Buick, Inc., Marble Falls, Burnet County, Texas. By: C. A. Barnett Eugene Ford Kathleen Barnett Experiment in Organization at College Station COLLEGE STATION College Station, a city of about 8,000 and home of the Aggies, rests on what might loosely be described as the western perimeter of East Texas. It is here that a highly interesting and in some respects symbolic situation has developed on secondary school integration. When Houston began “stairstep” desegregation last September uncertainty must have been widely felt. What would be the long-range impact of its integration on every small and mediumsized town throughout the area? In one such community, that question may be answered in the next several weeks. College Station, however, is by no means a completely typical East Texas town. It is almost as close to Austin, which has an integrated school system, as it is to Houston. It is, moreover, a college town. A&M dominates the community, and a large portion of its permanent citizens are professors and school employees. Perhaps most untypical of all, in the East Texas context, is the existence here of an interracial organization called the Citizens’ Fellowship. It is this group, organized two years ago and active in pressing the Negroes’ cases on a number of occasions, which appeared before the local school board last week in a crucial session. The Citizens Fellowship is a somewhat loosely organized group with about 70 people on its mailing list. For the average meeting from 20 to 50 people turn out. “There are about eight or ten really active white members,” one member estimated. Composition of the organization runs about 3-1, Negro to white. College Station at present has two consolidated schools, one for whites, the other for Negroes. Both schools are under supervision of the district school board composed, as one citizen of the town described them, “of good, decent, . fair-minded .men.” . The president of the board is executive secretary of the A&M former students’ association. Two others are professors. Construction began recently on a new elementary school for white children, to be completed by next autumn. “This started people thinking,” one A&M professor and member of the Citizens’ Fellowship, said, “about the entire question of segregation in the local schools.” Recently the Fellowship held a meeting, with about 700 people present, to discuss the situation. An open letter to the school board was later written and circulated, drawing 49 signatures. It was decided to present the letter to the board. Hydrants and Mail Service Frederick Kasten, an assistant professor of biology at A&M and a specialist in cancer research, is acknowledged to be the most energetic leader of the organization. A native New Yorker who attended the University of Houston and later got his M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Texas, Kasten is a tall, quiet-spoken man one might never suspect of having an active hand in controversy. His wife, a Texas girl who did graduate work in journalism at the University, is secretary of the Fellowship. The purpose of the organization, as its constitution states, is “to be an interracial group attempting to encourage within our community the brotherhood of man THE TEXAS OBSERVER Page 6 Nov. 4, 1960 under God, through discussion, fellowship, and study . . .” Kasten said the group is open to “all religions.” Two local ministers, one white and one Negro, now serve as co-chairmen. A Catholic priest is an active member. Meetings have been held in the white Methodist, Presbyterian, Christian, and Episcopal churches and in the largest Negro Baptist church. The Fellowship has sponsored interracial Bible schools for children the last two summers, one at the First Baptist, the other at A&M Methodist Church. About 125 children attended the one last summer, 200 in 1959. Some weeks ago, Kasten said, “a house burned down over in one of the Negro sections. When the firetruck got there they couldn’t find a hydrant.” The owner had eight children who “barely got out in time.” Kasten said there are no hydrants in the two Negro sections of town. “I talked with the fire chief and he told me if there were two trucks at the fire, they might have hooked hoses up and reached a hydrant. “The nearest fire hydrant to is at least two an a half blocks away,” Kasten said. “Consequently, the Negroes and the school are paying maximum insurance rates.” Kasten got a detailed map of the town and drove all over town, plotting every hydrant with a red dot. In the Negro sections there were no red dots. Kasten said he talked with the city manager, and two hydrants are being installed near the Negro school. A few months ago Kasten and Sam Pierce, a Negro, investigated on behalf of the organization some complaints that Negroes were not getting home mail delivery. “They were paying something like $2.50 every three months for a box in the post office or having to come in and pick up mail at general delivery,” Kasten said. “The main problem,” he said, “was that some of the roads in the Negro sections were claimed to be too bad for mail deliveries. The postmaster also said not enough Negroes were living in some of these blocks” to warrant home delivery. Kasten said they went over all the streets and wrote Washington for information on postal service regulations. “We told the postmaster he was wrong,” Kasten LEGALS CITATION BY PUBLICATION THE STATE OF TEXAS TO the following named persons, if living, and if not living, their respective unknown heirs and legal representatives, and the heirs and legal representatives of such unknown heirs: William Thomas Hutchins, Amelia Hutchins Glenn, Edward Hutchins, George Hutchins, Ross Hutchins, Will Hutchins, Mattie Hutchins Glover, Miss Danny McKie, Virginia Malone McKie Johnson, Stephen Woods McKie and Walter Rogers McKie, Defendants, in the hereinafter styled and numbered cause: by commanded to appear before the 126th District Court of Travis County, Texas, to be held at the courthouse of said county in the City of Austin, Travis County, Texas, at or before 10 o’clock A.
