Redlands Daily Facts Monday, July 22. 1963 - 7 McNamara restricts use of troops By AL KUETTNER United Press International An order by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara that uniformed troops must not participate in racial demonstrations has been sharply challenged by integration organizations. Caught up in the controversy is the little town of Havelock which lies outside the main entrance gate to the Cherry Point Marine Air Station in the flatlands of eastern North Carolina. Racial groups have leveled discrimination charges against the "public accommodations" of the town which derives much of its income from the 2,600 men of Cherry Point, 600 of whom are Negroes. Floyd AIcKissick, a Durham, N.C.. lawyer wlio is national executive director of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and an attorney for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), announced that McNamara will be asked this week to declare Havelock off limits to Marines unless the places used by the ser\'icemen are desegregated. Clubs, Cafes Segregated j He said he based his informa- 1 lion that at least 17 night clubs! and cafes and three theathers in the town were segregated on reports from a JIarine who had just transferred home from duty in Japan. A spokesman at Cherry Point, home of the 2nd Marine Air Wing, said the base would adhere strictly to a July 16 directive by McNamara and that "we will very definitely discourage participation in demonstrations." In that directive, the defense secretary said that military pcr- .sonnel "may not under any circumstances" participate in racial demonstrations during duty hours, while they were in uniform, while on military reser\'alions, when their participation breaks a civilian law or when violence is reasonably likely to result from a demonstration in which they were participating. Not A Direct Order McNamara did not expressly forbid off duty servicemen not in uniform from getting into a racial incident but they also could be affected in the event of trouble and arrest. The presence of a small number of Negro servicemen among racial demonstrators recently brought demands that McNamara issue a servicewide policy directive on the subject. A few Negro servicemen in uniform have showTi up at most of the major demonstrations in the South. McKissick did not say that Cherry Point military personnel planned to violate the JIcNamara order but he stressed that integration groups would turn to "direct action" at Havelock unless the Defense Department or the business houses involved move voluntarily. Mounties don't always get their man • WASHINGTON (irpi) — The head of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police admitted today that the Mounties don't always get their man. In fact, said Commissioner C. ' W. Harvison, they don't even ,.try. i "With the tremendous variety of work we have today, it would be utterly ridiculous to continue chasing a man through hell and high water, no matter what offense he had committed," Harvison said in a copyright interview with U.S. News and World Report. "It is true, however, that we never close a file on a serious offense," he said. Harvison blamed Hollywood chiefly for building up the idea tliat the Mounties never let a sus' pect get away. The real motto of the Mounties, he said, is "Main tain the Right." "We try to discourage young men who want to join the force thinking they will ride gorgeously across the prairies in their red coats to the tune of "Rose Marie,' " Harvison said. "We point out that life in the force is not a 'Rose Marie' type of thing."
