Godwin Derides HEW's Integration Guidelines
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

Governor Mills E. Godwin expressed his support for a bipartisan Congressional delegation's attack on the desegregation guidelines set by the Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW). Godwin referred to the plan as "unwarranted, unjustified, unneeded, unnecessary, [and] arbitrary" and suggested that a solution to school desegregation could not originate from the courts or from HEW, but must come from Congress instead.
