Demonstrations Mark Sit-in Anniversary •y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Demonstrations and boycotts •till were being used today to protest segregation on this fourth-year anniversary of the sit-in. Atlantans faced possible re- •umption of picketing at a downtown restaurant, focal point of protests the past week. An integration leader talked of novel and unique protests at Chapel Hill, N.C. The Cleveland Board of Education headquarters was the scene of a sit-in and New York public schools prepared for an antisegrcgation boycott Monday. The first sit-in began almost unnoticed at Greensboro, N.C., on Feb. 1, 1960. But this method of attempting to desegregate eating places spread rapidly and now has been tried in many cities of the nation. Atlanta and Cleveland in particular experienced sit-ins, picketing and street demonstrations the past few days, as well as minor violence. Jam*s Forman, executive secretary of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (9NCC) said demonstrations would continue in Atlanta on the anniversary of the sit-in movement. The head of the younger demonstrators made the statement Friday night, despite a decision by members of a Negro leadership conference to give qualified endorsement to a plea by Mayor Ivan Allen Jr- for a 30- day cooling-off period. Conditions set by the leadership conference included dismissal of charges ngninst all persons arrested during the protests and a meeting with Atlanta restaurant owners to work out a desegregation plan. At Chapel Hill, J. V. Henry, an SNGC field representative, said, "We will do something here we have never done he- fore." He did not reveal what form the' racial protest would take. J«m*( Farmer, director of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), said earlier this month that novel and unique demonstrations would start Feb. 1 unless all businesses were desegregated in the university town At Tuskegce, Ala., statu authorities waited today to see if.
