KILLED, CUSSED, AND HUSHED UP
Little Andvee Terry, a, sLx-yearold first graderat Mineral Springs
High jSSchool in Kllerbe was hit and killed last Thursday afternoon by
a car driven by Miss Ptyrey Long (white), a registered nurse at Rich
mond County Memorial Hospital. It is reported that little Andree was
walking on the proper side of the road when the car plunged into
her. The principal of the school rushed to the scene, which was just
a couple of hundred yards away, to make an investigation. He went
over to the prostrate form and placed his hand on its head. The
nurse, at this point, made herself known to him and proceeded to
give him a vicious profane cursing out. When the nurse paused for
wind, the principal identified himself saying; “I am the little girl's
principal and am merely trying to do my duty toward her.”
The nurse is said to have countered with, “I don’t give a d
who you arc, don’t interfere with her. The principal retorted, "you
have done your job and seemingly you have done a good one. I will
wait for the officers to perform their investigating ceremonies*.” The
officers showed no unbiasnesr, throughout then- investigation.
The nurse was paced in the official car and hustled off to town.
Since the accident nothing relative to the case has been heard of
other than byway os' the grapevine, which proclaims that she was
placed under rorae of bond.
SHAW UNIVERSITY AND ALUMNI CLASH!
The Alumni representatives who were recently invited by the
trustees and president o! Shaw University, along with the Baptist
constituency and trustee board met in a joint session to discuss
some ways and means to improve the general conditions of Shaw
University, In this, Attorney William Raines, a New York corpora
tion lawyer and past president of the National Alumni Association
of Shaw University, in presenting suggestions and recommendations
from the Alumni was halted in his remarks by members of the Baptist
ministry, who questioned his representing- the Alumni. At this point,
an harangue ensued between the minister:; and lay members of the
Shaw University Alumni in which a, general harassing of tiie group
against became the order of the session.
. Finally the wealthy and astute Dr. Joe Brown, of Cleveland,
Ohio, who is present proxy of the Shaw University National Alumni
Association, rose to the occasion and expressed his deep regret at
witnessing so much ignorance among so much supposed intelligence
in our Baptist leadership refusing to give car and consideration to the
desires of the lay Alumni.
In listening to the verbose and vacuous discourses of various
members of the ecclesiastical chamber of upper lords he was con
vinced that the office of the National Alumni president was of no
major importance to the administrative bodies of the University.
Dr. Brown offered his resignation as Alumni president and at least
two other national officers have said that if the resignation is ac
cepted, they will bow out with him. The meeting continued but every
body was irked.
Dr. Norman Nesbetli Jones, the popular and prominent Greens

NOT CONVINCING: The expla
nation offered by the Rev. Her
man Counts as to why he withdrew
his daughter from the Harding
High School in Charlotte, delivered
before the Social Action group of
the Davie St Presbyterian Church
last Thursday evening, was far
from convincing. Mr. Counts re
viewed the trials and sorrows ex
petii need by his daughter during
the few days she attended this for
merly all-white school but he fail
id to explain how he or any other
Negro can hope to ever achieve
the freedom they say they aspire
to without sacrifices and exposures
to personal danger and harm.
No one would have criticiz
ed Rev. Counts if lie had not
made application for his daugh
ter to attend this school. But
after asking for and receiving
permission for her to attend
the Harding school, It would be
natural for all to assume that
he knew what he was doing
