Is apparent as voices o responsible moderates are drowned out radicals who prefldh ah Inflammatory approach to racial equality. Here IB a closetip of 'the militant Negro movement, Seventh In a special Associated Press series on the ra del crisis, n.y JUNIUS NEW YORK (AP)-Volces o moderation In Northern nnt Southern Negro communities are muffled. In vogue Is a Negro militancy, conceived In frustration and Im patience. Radical organizations preaching Inflammatory ladles hnvt- emerged In ghettos where most Northern Negroes llvo. In the South, the militant leadership seeks to organize largely undisciplined would-be followers Inlo concerted notion. If the moderate; Negro in the South or North speaks against demonstrations that, might, result In violence, he often is branded an "Uncle Tom" and a cownid. For a Negro to express moderate view on any civil rights Issue la to risk his reputation and perhaps his personal safety. An example of the nullonls' vehemence was evident in Chicago when James H. Meredith and lh< Rev. J. II, Jackson, president of n Negro Bupllsl convention, coun- Beled a conservative course at the convention of the National Asorin- Hon for the Advancement of Colored People. Meredith, who risked his life and the safely of his family to establish Ihe right of a Negro to attend the University of Mississippi, was attacked by a youthful wing of the NAACP with such I,il- terness that, he admitted publicly: "T wept my first tears since T was a child." Jackson, head of the largest Negro religious organization in thn nation, narrowly escaped injury before being escorted from the convention. Sam Riloy, Chicago chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality resigned his post, saying, "I'm sick of sit-ins and picket lines." Riley's resignation came in protest against what he termed the "ultramilitanl tactics of Ihe kids" In tlie organization. "I prefer to plan and negotiate," Riley said. It was militant: civil rights demonstrations in Cambridge, Md., during June and July that split the Eastern Shore town and (hen brought it hack together when violent racial conflict threatened. The Cambridge demonstrations caused President comment: "I am concerned about these demonstrations. I think they go beyond information, beyond protest, and they gel into a very bad situation when you get violence, and I think the cause of advancing equal opportunities only loses. So I have warned against demonstrations which could lead to bloodshed, and I warn now against them." The President added, however, "You just can't tell people, 'don't protest'—but on Ihe other hand, 'We're not going to let you come into n store or restaurant.' " "The way lo make the problem go away," the President said, than the combined forces of Ih NAACP, the Congress of Racla Equality, the southern ChHslla Leadership Conference arid th Student Non-violent Coordtnatln Committee. the success of radical clement In Negro communities Is due part IV to their ability to identify wit grass-roots elements, Dr. Martin Luther King, at ; recent public appearance in Ha' lem, was greeted with a barrag of eggs from Negroes before h entered a church.

NAACP membership is ;ibout ,01)0 in Harlem, a community rf nore than a half million Negroes. VIost members pay dues and ear- y membership cards bul d<. not llend meetings. Who leads the community and pulls the strings? Rop. Adam Clayton Powell, D- N.Y., exercises control of a large element from (he pulpit of the Abyssinian Baplisl Church, the Harlem Democratic Club and a variety of civic organizations of which he is sponsor. The Harlem Democrat attacks the presence of while men in positions of authority in the'"big four" civil rights organizations and recently has been vocal in his support: of Malcolm X, Harlem's Black Muslim leader. Malcolm X attracts thousands witlv tirades against the white man. But. Negroes more often than not leave his rallies without having found solutions to their prob A young Negro leaving a Mus- Kennedy lo| |lm ,' n i| y "commented: "is to provide for redress of grievances," A militancy similar to that in Cambridge moved north to Brooklyn where Negro ministers gathered their congregations from the ghettos of Brooklyn's Bedford- Stuyvesant section, described as a "wasteland In the heart of New York." The militant Negro ministers vowed lo lead their entire congregations to jail, if necessary, in pressing their demand for more jobs for Negroes and Puerto Rlcans on publicly financed construction projects. In Savannah, Ga., where National Guardsmen were summoned to quell racial demonstrations, Dr. William Payne, president of Savannah Stale College for Negroes, refused lo make public statements on the situation, The cily's Negro community branded him an "Uncle Tom." The Influence of the radicals Is apparent in the attack on "the bijj four" action groups for equal rights. This attack is led by radical organizations such as the Black Muslims and a variety of African nationalist associations. These organizations have at' tracted larger gatherings on Harlem street corners on occasion "I dig this cat. But I am not about to become a Black Muslim, f'vc never been to Africa and don't want to go. I don't care for his religion. What I need is a jot so I can make some bread (money)." About 13 per cent of Harlem's labor force is unemployed. This represents more than twice the percentage for Hie city of Ne\\ York at large. Asked if lie had sought employment through the Urban League and other organizations, the younj, man replied: "I don't even knn\\ where their offices are," Many volunteered: "I don't know and I don't care." Roy Wilkins, NAACP executive secretary, said recently: "The other organizations furnish the noise and get the publicity while thn NAACP furnishes the manpower and pays the bills." Whitney Young Jr., League director, said "I do not see why I should have to go to jail to prove my leadership."
