Dear Mrs. Bates:
The Little Rock Board of Education has
carefully considered your request for inte-
gration of the Little Rock Public School
beginning in September 1955.
After a careful consideration of all
factors involved, your Board of Education
will continue with its previously explained
plan of integration, which will begin at the
time of completion of the third high school.
It is our considered judgement that this plan
represents the wisest course for all concerned.
William G. Cooper, Jr.
Little Rock Board of Education
