Suitcase Stuff By “Slunk” Browning 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. King Speaks oddsT&~ends (CONTINUED FROM FACE 1) 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 Burlington By Mrs. M. M.

No right thinking person will ever con done the type of treatment ac corded Miss Counts by some of the lawless grown ups and stu dents the few days she was at Harding High, No right think ing person has condoned the treatment accorded Negro chil dren in other localities who have braved the furor of the mob* but have kept right on regardless. In his talk last Thursday night, Rev. Counts not only tried to jus tify his own weakness, fear and timidity but he, for some uncx ■'’nined reason attemoted to vil ,;fy and condemn other Negroes or selling out to the white man. In view of what he had only re cently done that part of his talk could have weil been left unsaid. In fact, it wbuld seem that the best tiling that he can do is to keep his mouth shut until he is ready to sny that his daughter is going back to ihe Harding High School. wetzeTTcase (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) As Rev.
