Cook, President of Teamsters Local 528. Blacks in Jackson are being released from jail; they had been arrested for disorderly conduct. State School Superintendent Nix suggests new funding for kindergarten. Rep. Charles L. Carnes has qualified to run for Public Service Commissioner. Reporter Judy Woodruff reports from Atlanta on a workshop on student government. Lon Marlowe of Columbus College says since nobody really knows what happened at Kent State, we can't condemn anyone. Senator Bob Andrews says violent attacks on campus must be punished. Representative Elliott Levitas says our nation was founded on dissent and free speech, and these rights must be supported. Sports news is next. In baseball, Hank Aaron will be honored for his 500th home run. The Atlanta tennis classic is underway.
