"The laws are on the books now, and it's time to take the action out of the streets".and into the courtrooms," says the native of Washington, La., where her .parents were tenant farmers. Eighth'of 12 children', she was politicized in her teens when her cousin was blasted with a shotgun after he tried to register to vote hi the 1952 presidential election. "Legally we could vote but actually, we could not," she explains. "So we had to draw a line somewhere to stop white intimidation even though we knew we'd be beaten or even llusiohment and apathy she sees in the faces of her listeners. "Disillusionment because killed, as my cousin was.- Any body would be frightened, bul we had to take that chance,' adds Mrs. Brookter, who will Jean Curtis has written a book they don't feel they · have enough power, apathy because :hey feel nothing can be done. But they're .wrong. You're not always going to get the whole Ihing but as long as you keep inching up on it you will sooner or later prevail. If you press hard enough it's going to work but you have to have determination,", warns Mrs. Brookter, whose own determination took her to Chicago at age 22 in or der to be able to vote and to work for voting rights for everyone. · Already a widow with a 3- year-old daughter, she got a fulltime job there, worked as a volunteer in . Richard Daley's first mayoral campaign and enrolled in the University of Chicago, from which she graduated in just four years "by go Ing'to school on Saturdays as and eventually the first black advance in a presidential cam- aign. In this capacity she raveled ahead of dcGovern to arrange George every- hing from extra chairs to security. One of her fondest memories is attending the Kennedy inaugural ball at the special invitation of the President. 'Being there gave me such a great sense of accomplishment and the knowledge that it wouldn't be long till we would ;et .what we were fighting for," about those t\vo 'decades of po-lwell as nights." ellowship Hall of : 'the- church, ake was served'by Margaret urphy, aunt, of the bride, and arie Robinson.

Kennedy's Presi campuses, she deplores the dis- "denlial Inaugural Committee he says. Mrs. Brookter, who remern- bers a childhood when she would "see white kids in a rural area have a bus while we had to walk five miles to school," feels blacks have gotten much of what she and.oth- ers (ought for: "The right to vote, with , no restrictions about... having to memorize the state constitution or pay a -poll tax; the Public Accommodations Act, so we can sit in Ihe front of the bus i we feel like it: We have a hundred black mayors in large am small cities, 15 black congress , men, a black senator, a \yhole 1st of'state legislators in the South, the.

And when they do get in, she urges, "Don't'come in as a showpiece for .the .world, but turn around and bringypther blacks in." ' · -'· .: In her lectures, Mrs,. Brook- ir says, she always · stresses the need for black awareness. 'We've never : been : .'culturally deprived as so many people believe. We've been socially deprived. We must !be .ay/are of our history. Until- you-,'know where you came from you-.can't really think about where you're going." Garden Blossoms Make Lovely Gift Summer provides among .its other blessings, a very practical gift item, especially if you have a garden. The flowers that bloom in your backyard enable you to live lovely bouquets. Even non- jardeners feel free to send iiowei's during the summer because the prices of in-season blooms are far below the winter or'out-season prices. Flowers are a lovely way to say, "I care." So take advantage of this summer bonus and give flowers as an expression of appreciation, sympathy, love or friendship. Do not overlook potted plants as 'gift-giving items. They are ideal for friends, hostesses, even hospital patients because they last much longer than cut flowers, often require less care, and may later be. planted in the yard.
