students riot at Proviso East High School
Proviso East High School, in lovely suburban Maywood, was the site of the contretemps, which featured machete wielding girls and innumerable pummelings.
The crack Maywood gendarmes made 10 arrests and all was back to normal after only a few hours of savagery.
As one sagacious Proviso East scholar and melee participant philosophized to NBC-TV news: "It's the end of the year, all the anger builds up, everybody wants to fight, why not everybody fight?
Next May 17th will mark the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Brown v. Topeka Bd. of Education which forced racial integration of American schools and presumably Proviso East High will have special high spirited commemorative celebrations of this nature planned.
Here is the video report of the Proviso East High School student riot:
