TWO-A THE MONTGOMERY. ADVERTISER WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1956 Boycotters Lose Round Insured and operated by morally jurisdiction on the grounds that unsuitable drivers. Peter A. Hall of Birmingham (Continued From Page 1) led a battery of four Negro lawyers in saying the car pool was a non-profit organization and, if actually illegal, the city had not taken appropriate measures to halt it.' In a final statement, Atty Gray said the boycotters were being forced to ride segregated buses through the city's action. Mayor W. A. Gayle was the only witness called to testify by the Negro attorneys. Gayle said that had the law been different he "would have obeyed the law at that time" when the arrests starting the boycott were first made. Gayle said the city sought to halt car pool operations because a desired "comprehensive traffic survey cannot be made with this artificial transportation goin on" and because the Negro transporta tion system had "destroyed a safe, economical bus system." Surprise witness for the city was Stuart W. Patton of the Ala bama National Bank, who testi fied that the MIA had deposited a cumulative total of $189,000 in his bank. There is only slightly over $1,000 in the association de posit at the present moment, Pat- ton said. The city also Introduced movies taken by Police Lt. Drue Lackey showing Negro motor pool ooera tions. Atty. Hall entered an ob jection to the showing as taken by an incompetent operator and a violation of federally guaranteed privacy. City attorneys frequently made the point that MIA Treasurer E. D. Nixon was out of town and that neither he of his rec ords could be subpoenaed. Earlier, Carter had overruled a defense plea which challenged his In Or Oat? Judge Faces Army Rulinsr C7 I DOTHAN, Ala., Nov. 13 tn -Federal District Judge Frank M. Johnson Jr. took under advisement today a petition seeking the release of .a young army lieutenant charged with a $2,469 theft. He had directed officials of nearby Ft. Rucker to show cause why they should not release Lt. Stanley Maurer, 26, of 03 City, Pa. At today's hearing, a defense attorney contended that Maurer had actually been discharged from the service before he was picked up and returned to Ft. Rucker. Officials at Rucker had Maurer returned last month for an investi gation into a shortage in the Army Emergency Relief Fund of which he was custodian. The Public Information Office said the young officer was still on travel time when picked up at his home after receiving his discharge papers a few days earlier. Lt. Maurer is scheduled for a court martial if Judge Johnson determines the Army still has jurisdiction. Maurer's attorney conte n d e ti that the Oil City man received orders on Oct. 11 terminating his Army career on Oct. 25. He said Oil City police arrested Maurer and he was returned to Rucker on Oct. 27 after he was actually a civilian again. the federal courts rather .than the state courts have jurisdiction. CARTER'S RULING In holding his court had juris diction, Carter said the situation and persons in the two cases were different. The Negroes filed a petition in U.S. District Court Nov. 1 seek ing to stop the city of Montgom ery from interfering with the car pool according to the terms of a resolution passed by the City Com-mision last month. First Negro witness called by the city was King. The Negro leader said he knew very litle of the financial structure of the MIA and of the details of the transportation system. Association secretary Erna Dungee also claimed general Ignorance of financial and transportation matters when asked to testify by Knabe. The Rev. B. J. Sims, Negro pastor of a Tuskegee church, said he had an "expense account" of $29.40 weekly for his services as a member of th MIA transportation committee. Station wagon driver the Rev. Burl Mack Averhart said he couldn't remember where he got routing instructions but admitted he was given a "donation" of $24 weekly. A petition asking for a temporary injunction to halt city action against the motor pool filed in U.S. District Court by Montgomery Negroes will be heard at 10 a.m. today. Florida NAACP Probe 'Beginning To Roll' EVENTS WHICH LED TO COURT DECISION In chronological order, here are the events in Montgomery which led to the U.S. Supreme Court's historic decision yesterday outlawing racial segregation on public conveyances in the state: Dec. 1, 1955 Rosa Parks, a Negro seamstress, was arrested after she refused to move to the rear of a city bus when asked to do so by the bus driver. Dec. 3 Thousands of circulars were distributed to Montgomery Negroes, urging them to "stay off city buses" on Monday, Dec. 5, the day of the trial of the Parks woman, in protest of her arrest. Dec. 5 The Negro woman was fined $10 and costs in police court for violating city laws. Meanwhile, bus company officials reported the Negro "one-day protest" was 90 per cent effective. Dec. 8 With the boycott still in effect, Negro leaders indicated it would continue indefinitely until "satsfactory'r agreements could be reached. Their demands: A first-come first-served .seating arrangement, Negro drivers for buses which traveled in Negro sections of the city, and more courteous treatment for Negro passengers. Jan. 29 After weeks of futile negotiations, the first major violence was reported a crude bomb exploded on the porch of the Rev. M. L. Kins Jr., Negro leader of the boycott. No one was injured. Jan. 31 A second bomb was exploded, this time on the lawn of the home of E. D. Nixon, Negro leader and former president of the Alabama chapter of the NAACP. Feb. 21 The Montgomery County Grand Jury indicted 89 Negro leaders active in the boycott, all charged with violating state laws prohibiting organized boycotts. March 22 Rev. M. L. King Jr. was found guilty of boycott charge and fined $500 and costs, ase was appealed to State Court of Appeals where it is still pending. .May 9 On a petition from City Commission, Circuit Judge Walter B. Jones ordered City Bus Lines to discontinue its policy of desegregation. May 10 Negro legal leaders open assault on city and state segregation laws relating to transportation, giving testimony to a special three-member panel of federal judges.

Folsom would not try to outdo Gov. Clement in this regard, you are sadly mistaken. On the other hand, attempted enforcement of this decision will inevitably lead to riot and bloodshed. Your Citizens' Council has always insisted " that these matters be handled peacefully and legally and " I feel sure that this constitutional provision of the Council will remain in force and effect and will be controlling of its membership." State Sen. Sam Engelhardt Jr. of Macon, executive secretary of the Alabama Assn. of Citizens Councils: "This decision is just another example of the invasion of local self government by the federal government. I don't believe the white people of Montgomery are going to accept any such mandate from the Supreme Court. As far as I am concerned they can move the Montgomery City Lines, Inc., lock, stock and barrel, to Washington, D.C. It appears that the Supreme Court is determined to build a federal oligarachy that will undermine the very foundation of these United States, and spread ill will and discord throughout the nation. The Su preme Court apparently will not be satisfied until government by the people, of the people and for the best interests of the majority of all the people is replaced by a many-headed bureaucratic mon ster in Washington." The Rev. Martin Lather King Jr., Montgomery Negro pastor and leader of the long boycott: 'The Supreme Court decision places a basic responsibility be fore the Aegro and white com munity of Montgomery. All per sons must recognize the difficulty of adjustment and seek through the principles of love and understanding, good will to wort in harmony with the new system. All persons of good will will ac-ept the Sumpreme Court ruling ana see to comply with it. Mayor W. A. Gayle: "I will nave no comment to make until I have seen a copy of the court ruling. We have wired for a cony. and when it is received it will be given full study. I hope we can make an appropriate statement tomorrow." Fred Gray. Negro attorney rec ently involved in a heated controversy concernina his d r a f t status: . I am very happy by the de cision." BROWNSVILLE, Tex., Nov. 13 m The Mexican gunboat C28 escorted an American shrimp boat, the Pescadora, toward the Mexican port of Taupico today following the latest shooting incident involving American shrimp fishermen and units of the Mexican Navy. The skipper of the Pescadora, Capt. Tom Wilson, was in critical condition from two bullet wounds, his radio operator and nephew, Charles Wilson, said. The captain was hit yesterday, the radio op erator said, when the C28 fired on the Pescadora in the Gulf of Mex ico. 11 miles off the Mexican coast. News of the Pescadora wis re ceived by radio from Wilson's brother, Lloyd, 53, skipper of the shrimp boat Joyce Carinhas. He reported the Carinhas was standing helplessly by a short distance from the Pescadora. Both boats are from Brownsville and are owned by John Santos Carinhas. Earlier today the U. S. consul at Tampico said the Mexican government sought to radio the C28 to keep it and its captive, the Pescadora, away from Tampico. Consul George Whittinghill was quoted by the Carinhas as saying the Navy Ministry wished to advise tht C28 to allow the U. S. Bus Ruling (Continued From Page 1) mount importance. National City operates the local buses. Officials of the company in Chicago declined comment due to the absence of the firm's president. Locally, no bus line official would comment on what steps might be taken in view of the decision. Also declining comment were members of the City Commission as well as Gov. James E. Folsom. Mayor W. A. Gayle, speaking for the commission, said he had not seen a copy of the decision but would make an "appropriate statement" after he has studied the court's ruling. The court's decision yesterday placed into immediate effect an injunction ordering the City Commission of Montgomery to cease enforcing its segregation laws. J-JUDGE PANEL This injunction was issued by the three-judge panel, but then held in abeyance pending the outcome of the city's appeal. It was on this appeal that the Supreme Court ruled yesterday. There had been some question and hope among white leaders that the injunction might still be in abeyance, but this was ruled out by U.S. Circuit Judge Richard Rives, one of the panel members. He said the injunction would go into effect as soon as the court order reaches U.S. District Court i In Montgomery. Rives said it customarily takes two to three weeks for an order to reach the local office. Judge Rives also pointed out that the Supreme Court's decision yesterday applied not only to Mont gomery, but that it sets a preced ent for all similar cases of the future. He noted that the City Commission and the Alabama Public Service Commission have the right to petition for a rehearing within 15 days, but he said the possibility of further delay in the effective date of the order was slight. Coast Guard ; to care for Capt. Wilson. Mexican gunboats have arrested numerous U. S. shrimpers, taken them to port, confiscated their catches and fined the operators. Gunboats have fired at or near U. S. shrimp boats. Mexican claims its sovereignty extends 11 sea miles from shore. Neither the United States nor the shrimpers recognize this claim. They say Mexican waters extend out only three sea miles. A sea mile is lVa land miles. U. S. shrimpers earlier appealed i io we government tor more armed Coast Guard boats in the shrimping' grounds to protect what they say are their interests. They also threatened to carry arms, but were discouraged bv the Coast Guard. Here is the story as told by Charles Wilson by radio during the night and today as reported by Carinhas: The Pescadora was anchored about 11 miles off the Mexican coast and 120 miles south of Brownsville about sundown, when it noted the C28 coming up. The gunboat stopped one trawler and the' Pescadora attempted to move farther away from the Mexican shore. "The gunboat finally caught up with us," Charles said. "She fired three shots. One bullet hit the cabin door and then struck Capt. Tom Wilson in the back and another bullet apparently hit him lower down, apparently around the 'tidneys. We stopped and they came aboard." been a lot of talk just as I'm doing now." At the Montgomery Improvement Assn., the group which has spearheaded the 11-month-old bus boycott, the first of what probably will be many congratulatory telegrams arrived. It was from Denver, Colo. The contents of the telegram were not released for publication. Miss Juanita Townsend, 18-year-old student at Massey - Draughon Business College here, said that "if buses are integrated, many people would get upset. As long as you ask, I think it might lead to violence." Mrs. J. D. Powell of Selmer, Tenn., said she "didn't think the Negroes are quite ready for integration. Many don't keep themselves clean and I wouldn't like to sit next to them on buses. Up in Memphis they don't have bus integration." Warrant Officer G. C. Watts, 38, 210B Smith St. and formerly of Maxwell Air Force Base, said he felt "like the rest of Montgomery. I guess I just don't like the thought of Negroes pushing me around." Carrie McKenzle of 767 Day St., a Negro domestic, said, "I'm 56 years old and that too old to walk. 1 make $10 a week and that s not enough to pay cab fare every day. So I ride the 'buses. I don't use the car pool because they tell me I've got to be a member of the NAACP to do that. And I don't make enough money to belong to the NAACP. Anyway, my daddy didn't belong to the NAACP so why should I?" James E. Sanders of 1530 Winona Ave., said, "I'll tell you how I feel abort it. I never wanted to buy a car, but I'm buying one tomorrow. I'm doing that to pro tect my daughter-in-law my son's overseas and my grand child. I don't expect my grandchild, who's five year's old I don't think he'll ever ride on a bus next to a Negro." Jake Kilberg, 714 W. Patton Ave., said, "I'm a Northerner and up there we don't have any segregation on buses. But I believe it's up to the people of the South to decide for themselves whether or not they want segregation or in tegration." All the persons interviewed by The Advertiser, with the exception of Lewis, are regular bus patrons. In earlier interviews, one of the plantiffs in the precedent-breaking Supreme Court case said "it was not as if we were fighting the city or its officials." Susie McDonald, 78, said "all we wanted was justice. We were badly treated on the buses and now they've given us justice. "I feel that lots of people of the white race and of our race are not fit to sit with 'decent people and they should go to the rear of buses," the Negro woman said, The only other plantiff avail able, 16-year-old Claudett Colvin, had no comment. Robert Cleere, one of the bus drivers named in the federal court suit, said he would have nothing to say about the decision. Cleere is now in a federal civil service job at Max well Air Force Base. The other driver, James F. Blake, was unavailable. Reporters of The Advertiser throughout the city noted that all Negroes seen riding buses re mained seated in the rear. I i Kl A UN M . i !

" He said he felt this explanation held true "for all sections of the country, even here in the South where some people voted Republican for the first time in their lives. "But to realize the true strength and influence of the Democratic Party, one only has to remember that this election was practically unprecedented," he said. SINCE TAYLOR "It has been more than a hundred years, in fact, since 1848 when Zachary Taylor was elected, that the party of the President did not gain control of Congress." He added, "the new Senate, which has a Democratic plurality of two votes, will still probably continue to vote on the same basis of what is in the best interest of the country and support a bi-partisian foreign policy." Commenting on his plans until the Congress reconvenes, Hill said "most of my time will be taken up by a study now under way for our 'ser-or citizens.' "In the last 13 years.. man's life expectancy has increased by five and a half years. Now we're studying all phases of possible aid to him such as health benefits, income, employment and fields where he cai lead a beneficial and useeful life." Hun gaiT (Continued From Page 1) toward promises, but we must have confidence that the government will fulfill the promises after a resumption of work and re-establishment of order.? Soviet tanks and guns, at ail important intersections, got little attention. Other Soviet tanks and guns guarded the Parliament building where the Janos Kadar government installed by Soviet military might was housed. Parliament appeared to be the only place where the Kadar regime was master of the situation. Its radioed appeals for workers to return to jobs went unheeded. In government offices nationalist-minded officials expressed the view that Imre Nagy, the former premier displaced by Kadar, was the only man who could solve tLj present situation. Nagy and a group of his supporters apparently remained in refuge in the Yugoslav Embassy. There were reports the Kadar and Nagy groups held talks, but it was believed Nagy would refuse to cooperate with the Soviet-installed rulers. Rumors persisted that NikiU Khrushchev, the Soviet Commu nist party boss, was here with other top leaders trying to help the Kadar regime. Reaction (Continued From PagJ) legal means any effort to apply la his state a high court ruling aimed at banning bus segregation. In Florida, Atty. Gen.,,Riphard Ervin said bus segregation '. laws remain in effect in that slate and must be enforced despite the Supreme Court ruling. Sen. W. M. Rainach, chairman of the Louisiana Joint Legislative Committee on Segregation said: "I interpret the Supreme Court's new decision on bus segregation to mean the court plans to outlaw separate but equal faciUtits in every phase of our life. The original school segregation decision was not constitutional and this is just another unconstitutioiar decision by the same court." Govs. George Bell Timmerman, South Carolina, Frank " Clement, Tennessee and Luther Hodges, North Carolina, withheld comment. --.K t.-r Negroes have beu boycotting buses in both Montgomery, Ala., and Tallahassee, Fla., in , protest against segregation of the , races. In Montgomery, the Rev. -.Martin Luther King Jr., one of the, boycott leaders, said a mass' meeting would be held tomorrow night to decide whether to call off the boycott there in view of the high court ruling. He said Negroes tunques-tionably" will d?cide to-end th,a boycott. , Court (Continued From Pago 4) Supreme Court today agreed to review. The 1934 three-judge court was composed of federal judges Richard Rives, Seybourn H. Lynne and H. Hobart Grooms. In 1953, a three-judge " district court had declined to grant an injunction against the state,' and this 'decision had been affirmed by the U.S. high court. The 'union then claimed that it did not apply to ABC employes. The district court, In effect, then ordered the case into th state courts so that the law might be construed. After an appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court, which ruled that the act applied to ABC employes, the case went back into the federal courts, and thence to the Supreme Court again which today agreed to review the case.
