Nominations foirrepresentaLives to two Bi-Racial Advisory Boards to advise the superintendent of schools on race relations were accepted tnis past week at Pioneer and tluron High Schools. The princip√°is of both schools say primary and final elections will probably be held this week to select the six students from each school to serve on the committees. Aecording to a recommendation submitted several weeks ago by a group of students and adults headed by Ronald R. E d m o n d s , human relations director for the Ann Arbor Public Schools, the boards will be composed of three representaiives of black students, three representatives of "other students," three school personnel, two parents and two community residents. The students nominated for the committees volunteered to serve on them. The committees are expected to meet regularly with School Supt. W. Scott Westerman Jr. to advise him on race relations problems in the high schools. The bi-racial committees were one of the 21 demands of the black students at Ann Arbor High School last spring.
