(AP)-An Integrated variety show, which kicked up a controversy before it ever came to town, ended abruptly Monday night when part of a makeshift stage collapsed. Negro singer Johnny Mathis was in mid-song when about one- fourth of the platform crumpled and the lights went out during a civil rights fund-raising performance by members of the American Guild of Variety Artists. Murmurs of concern rose froth the large crowd, which included about 100 white persons. "What's happened? What's going on?" some asked, perhaps thinking of racial troubles which rocked this Southern city in April and May. Two spectators were treated for injuries. The show as held at the football field of Miles College, a privately endowed Negro institution. AGVA had tried to engage the Municipal Auditorium, but gave UD after a heated exchange of telegrams with city officials. The city said the auditorium was not available because it was being renovated. One of the performers began to play a piano to sooth ruffled nerves. AIR CONTROL CO. HEATING AIR-CONDITIONING SALES, INSTALLATION AND SERVICE 112 S. Main BR 6-8072 We Service All Makes!
