Students Walk Out
BETHANY, Okla., Feb. 22 P)
Police cruisers guarded the
Bethany High School grounds to
day. But there wasn't any trouble
among students over yesterday's
expulsion of five teen-age leaders
in a student walkout.
About 30 students walked out
Friday following a kissing inci
dent when the basketball queen
was crowned. The "strike" was
against strict school rule in this
strait-laced town of 2,500 a half
a dozen miles west of Oklahoma
Police Chief O. F. McLain
sent two officers to the school "to
protect school officials," Super
intendent Harry Edwards and
Principal Mrs. Alonzo Norwood.
The officers remained all day
and when school was dismissed
they were jointed by four others
The climax of the 5-day affair
may come torfight. The School
Board meets then to review the
matter. Parents of the students
are expected to attend and pro
test too harsh discipline and. se
vere control , over .student ac
tivities. A committee of parents met
last night. They voted to retain
an attorney and carry their fight
to District Court if necessary.
The rhubard started last Thurs
day when Riddell Riggs, 16,
crowned Charlotte McLain, 16, as
basketball queen then kissed
Public kissing is frowned on in
Bethany, where parishioners of
the Nazarene Church dominate
affairs. Beer, cigarettes and wom
en in shorts also are taboo.
The students walked out Fri
day but wcrc back in school
Monday. Five of them, though,
were suspended for their role in
the protest. They were Jay
Stradcr, 18, Paul Withcrspoon, 16,
Robert Hale, 16, Charles Wiman,
Jr., 16, and Jcncll Ellard, 16, all
were still out of school today.
One parent spoke out today for
calmness. He was Charles Wi
man, registrar at Bcthany-Penicl
College, a Nazarene school. His
son was among those expelled.
"There's been too much hy
steria about the" whole thing,"
Wiman said. "I believe the kiss
ing incident had nothing to do
with the walkout."
Kc attributed student dissatis
faction to "outside influences,"
which hn identified as parents
and others who "tell their chil
dren what t do and seem to
encourage acts of rebellion."
DURHAM, Feb. 22 (!') Col
leges and universities today"are
fighting on the front line for civi
lization," Dr. Elton Trueblood,
professor of philosophy of Earl
ton College, said at Duke Uni
versity this afternoon.
In this fight, the problem, the
distinguished educator said, is to
determine how moral influence
can be brought to bear. "We can
not make people good by telling
them to be good," he stated.
Educators face a challenge to
day to make their institutions
"pumping stations of civilization,"
Dr. Trueblood said. "Unfortu
nately, not all education is good;
not all colleges arc equally con
cerned with their tasks."
Too many colleges graduate, he
said, can't read and don't under
stand what they read after leav
ing the campus.
