India Dismantles Posts; Mrs. Hicks Tops Ticket
Boston School Committeewoman Louise Day Hicks led the ballot early this morning in the city's preliminary election.
With 150 out of 275 precincts reporting, Mrs. Hicks, who has consistently denied that de facto segregation exists in Boston public schools, had over 37,000 votes in the school-committee race. Thomas S. Eisenstadt trailed with 16,000 votes, followed by Joseph Lee (15,000), William E. O'Connor (11,500), and Arthur J. Gartland '36 (11,000). All are incumbents; Gartland is considered the most liberal.
In the city council primary, a supporter of urban renewal, Christopher A. Ianella, was followed closely by an out-spoken foe, Mrs. Katherine Craven.
