six of the 65 houses it plans
to build in East Winston.
These six houses will be
built near the intersection
of llth Street and Jackson

The association thus
becomes the first non-profit
group in North Carolina to
build Section 235 homes.

assistance to low and
moderate income families
that wish to become home
owners. It is also the first
non-profit neighborhood
housing group, according
to officials of the Department
of Housing and Urban
Development, Inc.
The' East Winston
Restoration Association,
composed of residents of
the area, was organized for
the purpose of rebuilding
and revitalizing the
neighborhood, an urban
renewal area which had lost
many of its homes to the
bulldozer. Other projects of
the association are tutoring,
voter registration and
education, and housing
code enforcement.

C.B. Mauser
Special To The Chronicle
Taking up the issue for a second time in response to an inquiry
from the audience, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth
County School Board adopted unanimously a motion
acknowledging February as Black History Month, and
urging the schools to stage activities during the month to
call attention to the contributions of Blacks to the
American heritage.
The Black History issue was raised during the time
when the PoardX meeting was ^TTpetV TO Ttre' Public.'*"*
Fleming El-Amin of the Winston-Salem Improvement
Association, Inc. read a letter from the association's
Education Task Force requesting:
1. That authorization be given to consenting principals
to make daily announcements highlighting sonic
historical or (to) present facts concerning Black History
during "Black History Month," February.
2. That authorization be given to consenting principals,
if needed, to have at least one general assembly
concerning Black History Month. Also that teachers be
encouraged to designate classroom time for the purpose
of accenting Black History during the month (Technical
assistance will be provided by the Improvement Association
if needed.)

its follow-through on primes and has increased its crime
* prevention education for, both plain clothes and
uniformed officers in an effort to decrease crime in the
^
city.
The force's stepped up measures are in a response to
a monthly report from the police department which
