An AP Special Report: Racial Unrest Brought Token Desegregation t o the South EDITOR'S NOTE Spreading racial unrest has brought token desegregation In the South, mostly in the large urban areas, but it triggered drives last summer in the rural areas and the smaller towns where any change would be highly significant. By DON MCKEE oLLMA, Ala. (AP) A racial ers League called for a non-segregation policy in all public buildings, efforts toward better jobs for Negroes including their employment as policemen and firemen and formation of a biracial committee. This was summarily ignored. The Negro unrest over the small number of Negro voters has been building up for years; there have been several court . - 1 1 : . t i ionium course is laia out for moves and federal steps aimed this aristocratic old town where i at getting more Negroes on the integration inroads would deal a rolls severe blow to the white man's cherished way of life in the Alabama grassroots. "The white man's not going to ive in and the Negro is determined to get his way a collision course," said Father Maurice F. Ouellet, a Roman Catholic priest whose parish is Negro, lie has been active in the Negro drive. Situated in the heart of the black belt, named for its rich soil, activities in Sclma are far more significant to Alabama's rural white population than are the ones in Birmingham, Mobile or Huntsville where token integration has come. Selma is the seat of Dallas County, where the cotton fields and pasturelands are watered by the Alabama River and where the white people are outnumbered by Negroes. The ratio is nearly 6-4. In the surrounding counties, the Negro majority is larger. Negroes are pushing voter registration in the wake of Sel-ma's first street demonstrations. Pickets at downtown stores were arrested and jailed. The white populace, despite Its minority, controls the government and the economy and has not the slightest intention of accepting any desegregation. "Solma does not intend to change its customs or way of life," was the blunt, brief comment of Mayor Chris Heinz. The voter drive helped precipitate Selma's slow boiling crisis but it is only part of the picture. In a long list of requests presented months ago to the City Council, the Dallas County Vot- Druggist Harmon Carter, whose store was picketed by Negroes, said the demonstrations would not help the Negro's cause. "They haven't gained a thing in the world," he said. "They've got a lot of people hating Negroes that never hated them before." A white Protestant clergyman, asking not to be identified, said the developments were politically inspired. But he added, "I think there should be some changes; but it will not be done overnight." The white Catholic Church accepted four Negroes recently but communicants immediately got up a petition and tried to thwart a repetition. A Presbyterian church accepted Negro worshipers and touched off a furor among members. Radical Jap Students In N-Power Protests TOKYO (AP) Radical university students protested Thursday against Red China's plans Of the 56,667 county residents, only about 300 Negroes are registered. White voters number about 9,600. The Negroes do not have any big weapons here. Their buying power is significant but Selma is a wealthy town and can absorb considerable dollar loss. Efforts at a Negro boycott have not hurt business substantially. The economy still is agricultural with industrial and commercial overtones. Craig Air Force Rase, a pilot training facility, adds a large share to the economy.

Hazleton Standard-Speaker, Friday, November 1, 1963 Nuclear Action to Defend NATO Group Should Rest With Executive Committee SAN FRANCISCO (AP) An executive committee composed of the government heads of the j United States, France and Britain should have command authority to take nuclear action in defense of North Atlantic Treaty ! Organization countries. Gen. Lauris Norstad urged Thursday night. i Norstad, who was commander of NATO forces from 1956 through 1962, advanced his plan as a practical approach to the ; problem of command and control over NATO's nuclear weap-lons. He described his three-power executive committee idea in an ! address prepared for the clinical congress of the American .College of Surgeons. "In the interest of prompt decision," Norstad said, "the com mittee should be governed by j the rule of the majority. A majority decision would not bind, at least initially, a nation positively dissenting." Norstad said nearly two years had passed without any positive action toward achieving the goals of a unified Atlantic com-'munity outlined in the so-called I Treaty of Paris in January 1962. ! "Europe is determined that the nuclear forces and weapons essential for its safety must be available under all reasonable circumstances, and that Europeans should exercise proper j influence or control over the use of this capability," he said. "Since the initial solutions have failed, let us get on with the business of developing one that has a reasonable chance of being accepted on both sides of the Atlantic." "The distribution of nuclear weapons, critical materials and nuclear techniques need not be materially broader than is now the case," Norstad contended. He urged, however, a far wider exchange of technical and tactical information non-nuclear on the development, production and use of delivery systems, including missiles. Norstad conceded there must be a question on how his three- power executive committee plan would appeal to the European ! allies, particularly France. ! He argued that F'rance's position of full partnership and leadership in the NATO alliance ! "would surely cause her to consider any proposition which is honest, realistic, and in accordance with the rights and responsibilities of the fre nations on 'both sides of the Atlantic." Stock Exchange Leader Plans Visit to Moscow NEW YORK (AP) The president of the New York Stock Exchange, G. Keith Funston, is scheduled to visit Moscow. : The tour is sponsored by Time, Lie, magazine publishers. Time said details of the tour and the names of the participants will be made public Saturday. I Funston, head of the nation's largest organized securities , market, is expected to be in the Soviet capital for one stop on a six-city tour with about two dozen American businessmen. The group is scheduled to leave for London on Sunday after seeing President Kennedy on Saturday in Washington. Other cities to be visited are Berlin, Bonn, Brussels and Paris. The trip will last 12 days. A study revealed that deaths from motor vehicle accidents are ; highest in the West and Soutn-i west. Unemployment and low wages greatly influence the Negro unrest here as elsewhere.
