PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1955 Church Did Not Pressure Margaret, Archbishop Says T oNDON (AP) — The archbishop of Canterbury denied yesterday that the Church of England had brought pressure on Princess Margaret to give up Peter Townsend. The archbishop, Dr. Geoffrey Ksher, ranking prelate of the An- gelican Church, made his statement on a television program of the government-sponsored British Broadcasting Corp. He broke his silence on the Margaret-Townsend romance, terminated by the Princess because of the Anglican ban on the remarriage of divorced persons, after some sections of the press had called for disestablishing the state church. As the archbishop spoke, audi- tnces at London movie theaters were hissing newsreel scenes showing him at a recent opera performance. The archbishop has repeatedly stated that the church does not countenance the remarriage of divorced persons whose former spouses are living. Townsend, a Royal Air Force group captain, divorced his wife in 1952 on grounds of adultery.

Negro Teachers Group Suggests Boycott of AEA HOT SPRINGS. Ark. «1 — The Delegates Assembly, policy-making committee of the Negro Arkansas Teachers Association, yesterday recommended to the state convention that the ATA not join the Arkansas Education Association as long as the AEA has "restricted membership." Segregation wasn't mentioned in the recommendation, drafted last j night, but the Delegates Assembly apparently was pointing to an AEA restriction that accompanied an invitation for the Negroes to join. The AEA asked for a merger on the condition that the Negroes would hold their meetings separate from the white teachers. In another recommendation, written for the approval of the convention, the Delegates Assembly advocated full cooperation with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. It described the NAACP as "most effective in promoting the welfare of the Negro teacher." About 3,000 Negro teachers are attending the 57th annual convention. The meeting will close Friday. George 8.
