PAGE SIX THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT. INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17,19«1 Segregation Battle Lines Drawn Iiv Albany, Georgia ALBANY, .Ga. (AP)-^Segregation battle-lines were-Tedrawn in this .south Georgia" dty Saturday as biradal negotiations collapsed. The ; city. commission', announced ^ cessation of .-talks, charging Negro leaders: with failing:to observe the terms of .a two-day truce. Mayor Asa Kelley, solemn-faced and weary from long hours of discussion, -read the commisision's statement; While-he was talking to newsmen at city hall, several hundred • Negroes massed four blocks away -amid reports that demonstrations against -segregations would be renewed'. The mayor's message" was received by the Negro leaders, but was not relayed to the crowd of 200 that had assembled at Shiloh Baptist Church. Solomon Walker, a member of the three-man Negro liason committee, told the crowd that a committee was seeking further negotiaitions with the mayor.

LOGANSPORT METAL CULVERT COMPANY 220 Hanna St. Dial 5157 Immediately after the commission's decision was announced, Police Chief Laurie Pfitchett said that if Negroes attempt further demonstrations "they -will be -arrested. He'said he had no definite information that a demonstration v^s expected, but'added: "we have to anticipate them." Mere than 550 persons, mostly Negroes, have been arrested in a series of anti-segregation demonstrations that began Tuesday. Less than 200 remain in jail. The demonstrations were set off' by the arrest last Sunday of seven Negroes and four white persons in an attempt'to desegregate facilities at the Albany railroad station. The marching, singing protests came in support of Negroes' demands .for the release of.. the jailed'demonstrators and for the removal of segregation barriers in the city. The commissioners charged in a statement addressed to officials of the Albany Movement that integration leader Martin Luther King Jr. of Atlanta, who spoke here Friday night, was encouraging violations of city and state laws. They also said the Negroes had requested continued demonstra- tions and parades, barred under the terms of a truce agreed to by Negro and white leaders -Thursday night.' '•'. '/.

Postal Department Ready For Big Rush WASHINGTON (AP)-If you're planning to mail your Christmas cards and packages Monday, the Post Office knows it. It has your number. •; • Based on past experience, the Post Office is expecting on Monday the largest single mail load ir. history—more than half a .billion pieces—as the 1951 Christmas rush hits its peak. Figures show it already is up 2.8 per cent, over 1960. Scars Of Fight Show ELISABETHVILLE, Katanga, The Congo (AP)—This Katangan capital is a front line, where mortar shells crash, and civilians as well as soldiers die. It is a city without water, without electric power, with refugees crowding the hotels where machine gun and rifle fire crackles only a hundred yards or so away. Hotels ration guests to two sandwiches a day. Hospitals crammed with wound- e<i have no water or electric service. Nurses with big buckets collect rain water streaming from the roofs. Emergency power units run the X-rays. ., This , s . all .; n . one . home Every crossroad m the aty* | ddivery ^ mMn m end to the center is covered by snipers from Mstl ^. ansemenis o{ previous Officials estimate a mail volume of 4 billion -pieces—it could be 6 billion, they said—in the Christmas period that began Dec. 15. .'..... The .-Post .Office .is braced, for the deluge. And, a spokesman told reporters, barring a blizzard or.severe weather or some unexpected surge of mail in a specific spot, "we have every confidence we'll have all the Christmas mail cleaned up by cjose of business Saturday." That means all the mail waiting to be' delivered in local post offices and doesn't take care of the New Yorker, for instance, who mails Uncle Herbert in Chicago a necktie on Saturday, No deliveries will be made Sunday, Christmas Eve, or Monday, Christmas Day. To handle this biggest Christmas spirit ever in the mails the Post Office is using a new system, which it estimates will save $5 million over the old system. . It means adding about 240,000 extra workers to the regular 580,000-man work force, compared with 293,000 extras last year and using experienced employes on overtime. It also means once a-day deliveries. FOSTER'S™//* 412 E. MARKET PHONE 3552 one side or the other. But many civilians in the besieged city run :o shops to buy the. scant provisions remaining. (The writer of this dispatch was forced to carry it from Elisabeth- ville to Northern Rhodesia in order to file, it, because, all the Katanga capital's regular communications have. been.severed.) The U.N. 'radio in Elisabeth- ville is broadcasting every few minutes in French, • Swahili and English, warning people to stay indoors and to.keep calm. "The blue helmets are your friends and are only here to restore order,"'the broadcasts say. A lone Katanga plane made another raid on U.N. positions Friday night. Said a. Katanga offi-. cial: "We decided we would give them a bit of a shakeup." ; It had been a sleepless night for people in the' center of Elisabeth- ville as mortar shells crashed. Hotel Leopold n was .overflowing with people sleeping five and six in a room. Others sept "n the corridors and in the entrance hall, lying on rugs or sprawling in chairs. With the dawn came the news that lights and water had been cut off and there was nobody able to serve food. Food brought by newsmen was shared. Scores of people milled about with haggard faces. Men were unshaven. The post office, center of regular communications with the outside world, was deserted. It was impossible to raise Northern Rhodesia through the switchboard. The only roadblock still manned was that on the junction of the road to Rhodesia, about 10 miles outside the city. Troops there asked eagerly of news of the fighting. Portuguese volunteers who have been fighting in Katanga's army said many soldiers deserted, shed their uniforms and hid in their homes. One of these volunteers asked a newsman: "You don't happen to have a pair of trousers for me, do you? B.F.Goodrich B.EGoodrich 416 High St. logansport, Ind. Phone 3136 ATTENTION MEN!
