    Background: CONTINUED ANGRY PROTEST AGAINST SCHOOL INTEGRATION IN THE SOUTHERN CITY OF BIRMINGHAM HAS BROUGHT WARNINGS OF POSSIBLE FEDERAL PROSECUTIONS.THE AUTHORITIES THERE -- AND THE POLICE -- ARE SHOWING SIGNS OF LOSING THEIR PATIENCE WITH DEMONSTRATORS.

    YESTERDAY ABOUT 600 WHITE STUDENTS CHANTED THROUGH THE STREETS AND GATHERED AROUND INTEGRATED SCHOOLS CALLING FOR A WALKOUT BY THOSE INSIDE.THERE WAS NO VIOLENCE BUT THE TENSION STILL EXISTS.

    THE STUDENTS, MOSTLY TEENAGERS, TAUNTED POLICE AND CHANTED THEIR NON-STOP CRY OF "TWO FOUR, SIX, EIGHT, WE DON'T WANT TO INTEGRATE." MANY SHOUTED CONFEDERATE SLOGANS, WAVED CONFEDERATE FLAGS AND DISPLAYED ANTI-NEGRO PLACARDS.

    OTHERS CALLED OUT TO WHITE STUDENTS ATTENDING CLASSES: "COME ON OUT YOU NIGGER LOVERS."
    HOWEVER, THE AUTHORITIES FEEL THE BOYCOTT IS WEAKENING.A CHECK YESTERDAY ON THE NEWLY INTEGRATED SCHOOLS SHOWED A SLIGHT INCREASE IN ATTENDANCES, YET THEY STILL REMAIN FAR BELOW NORMAL ENROLLMENT.

    FILM SHOWS STUDENTS WAVING PLACARDS, SHOUTING OUTSIDE SCHOOL AND GATHERING NEAR THE CITY HALL.
