Principal ' s Message We would add a word about the theme of this issue of TARGET , integration. Willard has been racially integrated for many years because its boundaries included a cross section of our city. However, Willard has received its students from seven Berkeley elementary schools, two of which were integrated while the others were segregated. Now, in the fall 1969, the first time, Willard will receive most of its students from only two elementary school s, both of which are integrated. Webster defines integrate in nine different ways, as follows: (1) to unite something with something else. (2) combine together; (3) to incorporate into a larger group; (4) to end the segregation of and bring into common and equal membership; (5) to desegregate; (6) to indicate; (7) to find the integral (8) to make complete; and (9) to form into a more complete, harmonious or coordinated entity. It is our hope that all the activities of students and staff at Willard will serve to form our school into a more complete harmonious and coordinated entity. To our eighth graders we say, work hard and give your ninth grade mind and statue. To our seventh graders we say, look toward the opportunities for leadership and service in your eighth grade and our school will become more complete harmonious and coordinated entity. Sincerely A. V. Shearer

student Body President ' s Message I have been asked to speal about integration in Berkeley schools. I will speal ; of it in two sections : first, kindergarten-6th grade, then, 7th-l 2th grade. Going to school is a starting place for students, where they leam about people, people who may be different from them or like them. In k-6th, integration plays a big role in our society. I believe that if a child is taught the true meaning of race relations early in his life, it will stay with him the rest of his life; but if a child isn ' t taught this he will leam some other way, and this will mean trouble for everyone. A large part of education starts in the home for different students. Some kids are taught to be plain prejudiced by their home environment. The other section is the secondary schools from 7th through 12th. Grades 7 through 12 should have already had integration in their eveiyday learning and ac- cepted it. Yet there are a few people who spoil the whole program. For example, talk goes around, then spreads, and soon you have a rumor that some White Boy beat up some Black Boy; then all the Blacks are going to beat up the Whites. Yes, there are a few Racists who spoil the whole program. We could all get along with integration if everyone would be cool and naturally do their own thing. Dr. Sullivan set up this program of integration with a great outlook in mind — of Berkeley being one of the ' ' super cities in the United States. It will take a long time for this program to prove itself. When it does we can all be proud be- cause we can think in our own minds that we helped it along. . . With sincere thanl s, 3
