The Nashville. Tenn.. ngency re-
ported that an estimated 314,871 Ne-
groes. this fall, attended clnsses with
5,:«7.S01 whites, not including Mis-
souri. This represents 0.2 per cent of
nil Negroe. attending school in 17
slates and Washington, D. C . which
required racial segregation inllJM-
In Texas, an estimated 14.1*1" Ne-
groes are attending classes with 1,-
21MI000 whites. This represents more
than 4 per cent of the state's 328.400
Negroe. who attended the public
schools. The tally of Negroe* desegre-
gated in Texas, is about double the
estimate of last year.
While 67 mure districts In the
state have abandoned serregntion, nnd
others extended gradual desegrega-
tion. the major reason for the increase
is the-inclusion of formerly all-Negro
schools which have enrolled some non-
Negroe.. Thi. has taken place in
rich places as El Paso and Son An-
tonio, which also have begun Integra-
tion ot faculties,
The District of Columbia furnished

cent of all Negro «chola«tic»: Mis-
«ouri. an estimated 40.000 Negroes
are desegregated of fl',000 in school.
Smaller numbers but substantial
percentages, are desegregated In Del-
aware. Kentucky, Maryland and West
Virginia. . .
Segregation remains the rule over
moat of the 11 states that formed
th. confederacy, although Texns may
be considered an exception here More
than half of Texas Negro students
live in desegregated districts, al-
though most of these still attend sep-
arate schools by choice, geography, or
"court-approved" stair-step policies.
Mississippi alon*> retains complete
Hecregation in public whools. but it
has admitted Negroes to the state
university by federal court order en-
forced with troops.
Kelt to Texas, the most desegre
gated schools of the Old South are
in Tennessee, which has 4.4110 Ne-
groes In clnsses with whites, repre-
senting 27.1 per cent of all its Ne-.
^Alabama has admitted 11 Negroes
to formerly all-white schools; Ar-
kansas. 1.084; Florida. 3AM; Oeor-
gia 177: Louisiana. 1.X14: North
Carolina. 1.R0f>: South Carolina. 10.
and Virginia. 3.721.
The 0.2 per cent of Negroes deseg-
regated In the 17 formerly segregated
state* compare* with 7.8 per cent last
year: 0.9 per cent the year before,
and 0 per cent in 1060-01.
Although no southern "t*te comes
near having desegregated all its pub-
lic achool districts, four of tliem—
Arkansas. North Carolina Texas and
Tennessee—have opened all their state
supported colleges and universities to
both races In policy and Pmot'ce.
The southern states have 21- col-
leges and universities and 115 of
these are desegregated.
Manv colleges nnd universities haie
discontinued reported enrollment by
race but the best estimates sre that
more than 35.000 Negroes are In
college clnsses with whites.
In Texas. 44 of the 54 tax sup-
ported colleges admit all races A
greater portion of the other ten have
dropped racial bars, but no Negroe.
