  • Description

    IN AMERICA, THE CIVIL RIGHTS CONFLICT BETWEEN WHITES AND NEGROES CONTINUES. NATIONAL GUARDSMEN, STATE POLICE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE REPORTED TO BE IN ACTION IN A NUMBER OF CITIES AND TOWNS IN THE DEEP SOUTH AND EVEN IN NEW YORK. AT SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, HUNDREDS OF NEGROES HAVE BEEN ARRESTED IN RECENT ANTI-SEGREGATION DEMONSTRATIONS. AND IT WAS THAT THE EXTREME WHITE RACIST ORGANISATION, THE KU KLUX KLAN, HELD A NIGHT MEETING.

    SUPPORTERS OF THE KLAN CHEERED AND SHOUTED ENCOURAGEMENT AS THEY HEARD THE GRAND DRAGON, (LOCAL LEADER), CALVIN CRAIG, DECLARED THAT UNLESS SEGREGATIONISTS ARE REPRESENTED ON BI-RACIAL COMMITTEE TO NEGOTIATE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NEGROES AND WHITES, THE KLAN WOULD STAGE ECONOMIC BOYCOTTS IN THE CITY.
