6 Sun day, "June 6, '65 Delta Dcmorrat-Timc.s industry Necessary For Youth: Fore IIOLLANDALE - Industry was cited as a big factor in keeping local youths in their hometowns by John Fore, son of Mayor J. \V. Fore, in an address lliis week before (he Hol- lamlule Rotary Club. Fore, a graduate of Italian dale High School, is currently employed by the Univac compu ter firm in the Washington, D. C., area. He was home this week for the graduation of his kind of environment his child- brother, Michael, from HHS. He said that "any young person who is going to raise family is interested in employment opportunities and in what ren will have." He said the type youth activities available in a community is a factor in making the decision wheher or not to settle there. TURNING to his own job with the Univac firm, Fore told Rotarians that Univac is currently engaged in the establishment of an information retrieval sys tern that is expected to save the federal government $5 billion annually. For years there has been a duplication of efforts in govern- ment -- sponsored research. Pore said the duplication of the research occurred largely because of the inaccessibility of research results. The information retrieval system makes research information on a great many topics immediately available within a matter of hours. Prior to the establishment of the computer retrieval system, weeks or months were required (or acquisition of the research information and many government contractors preferred to duplicate research rather than wait on the information to become available. i s Posthumous Award The Air Medal, awarded posthumously to Capt. Donald L. Anderson, was recently presented to Mrs. Anderson by Brig. Gen. Frank W. Gillespie, commander of (he Portland (Ore.) Air Defense Sector. Capt. Anderson was killed in November after ejecting from a crippled F-102 jef fighter. The medal citation credits him with "outstanding heroism and selfless devotion" for his efforts to guide the aircraft away from populated areas at the risk of his own life. Capl. Anderson was » Greenville AFB instructor pilot from 1935 to 1958 and married the former Hazel Anne Boen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Boen of 1212 Fairview Ave. (USAF Photo) Summer Forecast: Not As Hot By ANDREW J. REESE JR. itecrs will participate in the JACKSON, Miss. UPI -- The NAACP's eight - week cam- tattered "freedom" signs have been taken down and the once crowded offices at 1017 Lynch Street are deserted. The big plate glass window, smashed by bricks a year ago, has been replaced and through it- you can see empty brown cartons on a dusty, unswept floor. The walls are bare, and the door is locked. A few Negroes lounge in front of the Streamline Cafe next door, but the scores of Negro and white youths who worked and planned, ale and often slept la the grimy, makeshift offices «re gone. * * * ONE YEAR ago this was the state headquarters of COFO-the Council of Federated Organizations. In these hot, stuffy rooms, the Mississippi summer project of 1964 was launched and directed. EDITOR'S NOTE: Hundreds of college students poured into Mississippi last summer for an intensive civil rights campaign that frequently boiled over in violence. Now another summer is here and more students are on the way, but there have been changes. paign starting July 5. FDP chairman Lawrence Guyol said His group was expecting about 500 out - of - slate recruits. A major goal of both groups will be increased Negro voter registration under the new voting rights bill, but their methods may differ greatly. A number of key factors have played a part in the changing racial scene in Mississippi, once described by the NAACP as typifying the "deepest, most racist South." The Ku Klux Klan and other militant while groups that arose last summer claim widespread membership, but apparently have cut back their activities during the past few months. One possible reason: the FBI, which opened a new district office here and beefed || up its forces in the stale, has|l succeeded in infiltrating the |f klans and keeps close tabs on any suspicious moves. Volunteers -- an estimated MO of them -- flocked into Mississippi to join the statewide campaign. Many were college students who had never been South -before. 'They came from all parts of the nation, from all walks of life. Many were arrested. -Others said they were cursed and spat upon, threatened and beaten. chased, Three -of them were killed. Now the temperature is hilling the 90s again and another summer has arrived. A new cadre of volunteers is getting ready to invade Mississippi What they will find here is anybody's guess -- but the concen- sus is that it won't be the same as last year. COFO is slill active, at least in name, but has undergone a vastly retrenched program, currently operating largely under the auspices of the Mississippi Freedom Democatic party, a predominantly Negro political organization. * * » THE NATIONAL Association for the Advancement of Colored People, one of the older and more established of Die civil rights groups, has severed all ties with COFO and is planning its own 1965 summer project. The National Council of Churches, which helped underwrite- expenses last year, also has withdrawn financial support but is still actively engaged in civil rights work. The NCC re cently opened a special schoo ·t Edwards, a few miles west o Jackson, for training Mississippi Negroes in areas closely linked with civil rights. Field secretary Charles Ev- ·rs estimated about 750 volun- GOV. PAUL Johnson, seeking a new "image" for his embattled stale, has vowed repeatedly that lawlessness will not be tolerated by either race. The Mississippi Economic Council and other organizations, aware of the effect of bad publicity on industrial growth, lave issued statements urging || compliance with civil rights statutes. Political, business and] religious leaders have spoken out for better racial understanding. One concrete example of change occurred last fall when Negro · children were admitted without incident to previously white schools in three cities. A number of other cities plan to begin school integration this fall. The air of tension has not 'anishcd entirely, any more than the deep-rooted attitude of|| thousands of whiles, particularly in the regions where Negroes outnumber whites by large margins. A veteran law enforcement officer said it would be naive to think there won't be a certain amount of trouble. * + * BUT LEADERS on both sides | hope to avoid another wave ofjl church-burnings, bombings and' Bloodshed that swept Mississippi last summer. Three young COFO workers were slain near] Philadelphia, Miss., shortly aft-1 er the 196-1 project got under-way. A federal judge threw out fel- ny charges accusing 18 white jl men of plotting the death of (hell three civil rights workers, but the suspects still face lesser ied-| eral charges of depriving the in- tcgralionists of their civil rights No trial dale has been set. The state has not brought any charges. "Violence has failed as a way ,1 to prevent integration," saul oneJ slate official. "Violence breeds' indignation, and indignation breeds new laws."
