In Cincinnati, the Justice Department asked th'e.U.'S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to order 15 Tennessee landowners in Haywood County to permit 23 sharecroppers to farm their land. The development was the latest in the case in which the federal government has claimed landowners in Haywood and Fayette counties, Tenn., refused to renew leases with the sharecroppers because the Negroes registered to vote in the I960 election. The Justice Department developments occurred on a day marked by convictions in connection with demonstrations in three states and renewed picketing and sit-ins in other Southern areas. Television, cameraman George Carras of WSOC-TV, Charlotte, N. C., was convicted of trespassing for taking pictures during a sit-in demonstration in a Sumter, S. C., drug store. Carras received a $100 fine or 30-day jail sentence and an attorney said the conviction would be appealed. A trespass charge against Boyce Stradley, a charter pilot who flew Carras to Sumter, Feb. 14, was dismissed. At Chattanooga, Tenn.. a juvenile court judge convicted 11 Negro boys and one girl on disorderly conduct and public annoyance charges and declared them delin- o.uent.
