Docs the Negro in the segregated stales want to mix with, the whiles? Is he ready for integration? Will It help his race? X: During a 2,500-milc tour of Pixie, 1 have talked with dozens of Negroes .about just that, They ranged from NAACP leaders to cotton field hands, from bankers 1 . to a barber whose customers earn 30 cents an hour. There is a big division o£ opinion among the South's Negroes. By no • means all of them want integration, even in the , schools. The National Association for the. Advancement of Colored People represents one element. It wants immediate Integration. It contends with justification that it has proved to the satisfaction of federal court 1 ; that the South made little attempt to give Negroes equality until the pressure .came to: benr. There is another huge .segment of Negro population that still can't comprehend all the controversy. This is an element ttat is still servile, as often as not tied,to; the soil or a community store -where they 'never quite .get out of debt, In stlH another group are Negroes, including many responsible leaders, who confess the belief that integration would be a mistake. Spokesman for the NAACP admit privately that lethargy and outright opposition from their own race are, their most formidable problems. TV Fans'Urge 'Medic' T© SAow-Caesarean Next Program Will Deal With 'Mercy Killings' By AUXE'.'MOSHV - ,_HOLLY\VOOD — UP— Do television viewers want to see a eae- •sarean birth on their home screens? "Medic" producer Frank. LeToureiie is counting- stacks of" letters from persons who sav they do. " . The mail; bag for ihe producer of the NBCVTV penes on medicine has been extra-heavy since the net- ,:vyork cancelled a : scheduled controversial program showing a baby being- born by coesaroan section. ;.:;" "And' only three letters out of 200 have been against the show, and those were largely crank letters." LaTourcite said Friday as lie sifted through his mail'. "The. letters Miylng Uic program should he shmvn am fnt«rll5{ji»ntlv written. And everyone, f've shown the show to thinks it should go on." The provocative program still has the network and the ".\icdic" . makers playing- tuj,'-pf-\var. NBC refuses to run the filmed show unless parl of the operation is deleted. But LnTourctU: and writer Jim Moscr refuse to lay censoring- lingers on their celluloid. "We're still at an impasse," the producer smiled. Furthermore, LnTourette said, he's charging ahead with plans for more controversial shows. Lust Monday "Medic" featured mccil- oai. experiments on animals — and LaTourelte expects complaints from anti-viviseetionlsts. .Monday tiie program look* inlo (ho sizzling (subject' of culhim- itsiu, or iiK'n-y killing;.

Another future program is about arthritis, and "Medic. 1 '' will film an actual rare operation to straighten an arthritic back — if LaTourette can find one. "NBC asked us lo cut the scene in last Monday's show in which the doctors experiment with a kittsn by taking: cut its eye and putting in a glass window." LaTourelte said. "We refused to. "Just because the caesarean show was cancelled, we are not goinif to tiptoe around. "If 'Medic 1 shows are going: to be censored (hoy. might as v.-c-il take tiic show off 'the air.

Hicks Thursday admitted Ail' Force charges that there arc bawdy houses in Danville, but insisted* his city is in "nice shape." He ran head-on into opposition from :,i group of ministers who think differently. The mayor said "you know as well as I do" that there is prostitution in Danville, but that didn't mean the' Air Force should got high and mighty about it. He said aijout 300 people have telephoned to congratulate him for "idling 1 oli" Bits,'. Gen. A. Sf. Minion,, commander of the nearby Chnnuto Air Force Base. Minion charged that eight of his men contracted venereal diseases ."it Danville bawdy houses in February alone. He" demanded that "somethius: must be 'lorn?" and found ready allies in the Danville Ministrrial '.Association. HickH, however, refused to get. worked up about the presence of "swivel chair ponenil 1 ' and added "let's be realistic." 'Prostitution's Ivcn with us a long time, and it will be here after I'm ffonn," th'. 1 mavov said. "The rcnl trouble isn't with the houses of prostitution anyway. Ninety per cent of the'trouble arid dteeaso come from girls who get picked up on the streets and in bars." ill TOKYO —UP— The Kyouo New?

Largely because of pressure, they have obtained some fine schools, even in rural areas, and have won notable civil rights victories. Their wages are far.-below• the ; white average but are. rising steadily. Naturally, the -least agitation for integration comes from areas that have done the most for Negroes. In Jackson, for example, the head of fhe NAACP, Edgar' Evars, says there is no big drive for integration "because emotions are too Jiigh." But actually the, big factor is that Jackson, under Mayor Allen C. Thompson, pnst president of the American Municipal Association, has given Negroes a treasure of schools and recreation facilities compared to what they had a few years ago. Jackson has built a §700,000 Negro auditorium where Singer Marian Anderson and other artists appear. Yet segregation is so rigidly enforced that- whites arc not allowed to attend such concerts. You hear little integration iaik among Negro school people. For one thing, many Negrp teachers would lose their jobs under the integrated system. At Oak Ridge, Term.,', which has integrated public schools, there is but one Negro teacher amongsevera! hundred" at the high and junior high schools. One of the most outspoken Southern Nesrro critics of integration is J. W. Jones, va New Albany, Miss., newspaper publisher. "Tt is not our color that .the world looks at with disdain but our conduct," Jones says. "We say we are snubbed am! cursed by the other fellow, bu'. tho: mass of out- people conduct ';jemseives in such a way tha.t th-:oe who have acquired any degYge of intelligence arc made ashanvtl of the way we cany on some Jime." But the NAACP -.s determined, to press for full civil n;hts. To critics who say it is going too fast, Oliver Hill, NAACP attorney for Virginia, points out that the first civil ,-ighls cases went to the courts more than 20 years ago. "The Negro wants to be a first class citizen in the South like everybody else," Hill says. "We are not going too fast toward that goal." Hill said he fought during Work! War II in the breakthrough at Si. Lo following D-Pay, but "I 'was. never more frightened than when' I walked down the streets of Alexandria, La., at night." r Plumwood Addition OPEN FOR INSPECTION DAILY 1,400 100% . $ 16,500 '5 AND FHA GI's-No Down Paymenf!
