  • Description

    AN UNEASY QUIT HAS SETTLE OVER JACKSONVILLE, AFTER TWO DAYS OF NEGRO RIOTING, BUT ISOLATED ACTS OF VIOLENCE CONTINUED WEDNESDAY NIGHT (25 MARCH).

    PEACE EFFORTS AND THE GENERAL EASING OF TENSION RAISED HOPE THAT THE 201,000 RESIDENTS OF THE SOUTHERN CITY WOULD ESCAPE A PROLONGED CRISIS. FORTY-ONE PERCENT OF THE CITY'S POPULATION IS NEGRO.

    THE CRISIS ERUPTED OVER SEGREGATION IN HOTELS, MOTELS, RESTAURANTS AND THEATRES -- A LONG-STANDING ISSUE.

    IN CONTRAST TO THE PREVIOUS NIGHTS, WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS RELATIVELY QUIET. SOMEONE TOSSED A ROCK THROUGH THE WINDOW OF A WHITE GROCERY STORE. A BUS WAS HIT AND ITS WINDOW BROKEN.

    BUT THE MOST SERIOUS INCIDENT TOOK PLACE EARLIER IN THE DAY WHEN NEGROES ATTACKED AND BEAT A 54-YEAR-OLD WHITE MAN IN A MIXED NEIGHBOURHOOD.
