I 4 T H E Z A N E I 3 V I L L E S I G N A L Outbursts of Racial Violence 1 z . " ':'/;H ' - ! in Soiitliern States Freedoms Foundation Head To Speak at Scout Dinner \ ' -- . , " - _ - ? ·" ' l LMI r«,v - ' IA. ~ By TOM CHASE , - Tke AjMciiiid FTCM · Sporadic''outbursts of violence still edioed across the South on this final day of 19H, a year marked by, some" progress'toward racial integration in border states and resistanle'to change in many deep-South areas. Artention focused on bus segregation and'athletics during the past few 'the wake of controversy and~rioting over integration of jsome public schools. City'buses in Montgomery and Birmingham,-Ala., were fired on jix times in a four-day period ended last night. A 22-ye^-oId P re £- nant Montgomery Negro woman who was shot in both legs was the only person reported injured in the attacks. The University of Mississippi basketball team withdrew from the All-American City Basketball Tournament at Owensboro, Ky., ·and the Mississippi State basketball team dropped out of the Invitational Basketball Tournament ot Evansville, Ind-t over the weekend because opponents had Negro players on their squads. The - bus situation appeared most-critical in Alabama Negro leaders at Tallahassee, Fla., were pressing-for integration on buses, and movements with that objective in- mind were reported being planned in Tampa, Fla, and Baton Fouge, La. Last night 400 Negroes attended a jneetire of the Inter-Civil Council in Tallahassee and assured their leaders they would ride in the front of city buses in support of the council's campaign for integrated seating. Steele named an 11-member committee to encourage integrated bus riding. The ,, Alabama trouble flared after Montgomery city buses were Integrated under Federal Court order 10 days ago. Mrs. Rosa Jordan, a Montgomery laundry worker, was shot in the legs while riding a bus Friday night The City Commission ^Saturday ordered night bus" runs' suspended after 5 p.m. through Jan. 1 to prevent further Woodshed. 4t Birmingham a city bus with 30 passengers was fired on last night, but there were no injuries. Detective Joe Lindsey said six Negro boys ranging in age from 8 to 13 years were picked up in connection with the shooting and turned over to juvenile authorities pending a hearing. It was the second time in 24 hour* that pellet* were-fired at Birmingham buses. Police,reported two white men fired into the real of a bus in the Negro section Saturday night. No one was injured. The men escaped. Alabama's Gov. James E. Folsom issued a New Year's message in which he said "order musl be maintained and will be maintained" on "the much agitated question of segregation" in the state." v Folsom said that "so far" no local authorities in Alabama "have appealed to the state for ass.stance to maintain law and order." Tuskegee (Ala) Institute's annual race relations study, released last night, said that "despite some incidents of violence, desegregation activities during the year were generally orderly." This was termed "a most encouraging expression of the vitality of American democracy " Most public demonstrations and violence aimed at intimidation of Negroes occurred in communities whose public officials "apparently condoned them," the report said. "They did not take place, or were promptly supressed in communities whose public officials discouraged them." The report said some 208 school districts in eight states desegregated their schools in 1956. The school districts were in Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas and Tennessee. Lcuisville. Ky., was cited as a notable example of school board action in desegregation both elementary and secondary, schools voluntarily. At Baton Rouge, A. P. Tureaud, few Orleans attorney for the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People, said the New Orleans NAACP branch was filing a list of about 300 members with the secretary of state as requested by law. The NAACP was outlawed in Lousiana last spring under a 1924 law originally aimed at the Ku Klux Man. The law required or- ginizations to file membership lists annually.

In the world of flying it takes a giant to move passes of people fast In the world of selling, too, it takes a giant to move the people ... a giant who lives in every town, the daily newspaper. This giant not only lives in every town, but in practically every home--f very day. And in the home the newspaper remains to be read, put down, picked up and ra*d again, to that it's no trouble at all for a ·twipriptr advertiser to make a local call every day. Daily n«wspap«r circulation is at n new 56,000,000. Many of the ads in the paper will end up in a purse or a pocket because people habitually use the newspaper as a shopping guide. That's why advertisers--local, regional and national--spend more money in daily newspapers than they do in radio, television, magazines and outdoor combined. To muve a multitude of goods, you must move multuudes of people to action. Use "action" advertising. Use the daily newspaper; AUbu9inf*$l*local...andKanallncw9paper*. REV.
