(Louisville, Kentucky) Disturbance seemed to indicate violence for school opening today, but it didn't occur. School officials pleased with peaceful opening and with number of students in attendance. [School superintendent Ernest GRAYSON - says last year students concerned over what would happen; didn't feel that this year] Many antibusing proponents have sent children to private schools this year [Private school principal Reverend Don GRICE - says they could use twice as many private schools if available.] Officials say may be some conflicts over busing later, but things calm today and they're anxious to start teaching.
