"It is my personal feeling," he continued, "that the prob lem of accepting the reality of this is not with the buying public as much as it is with the managements of black enter prises. I know we, at North Carolina Mutual, like so many other Negro businessmen, were not at first convinced that, in most case*, the economic fac tors would really outweigh ra cial considerations.

(Photo by Purefoy) Phantom Idea Abandoned After 1-Hour A brand new university de signed to give a practical, black oriented education was opened and closed here this week. Malcolm X Liberation Uni versity began operations Mon day but closed within an hour. Orientation was started Mon day and classes were scheduled to get into high gear next week. The school, created by Afro-American students from Duke University, was located in the downtown offices of the Foundation for Community Development(FCD). The basic purpose of the school, as explained by Mike Mcßride, president of the Duke Afro-American Society,, was to offer a "pragmatic" education for black persons. The school was especially geared to courses providing tools for use in working on problems of the black com munity. "Malcolm X University was designed to provide something for black persons which Duke University either could not or would not," Mcßride said. "That something is a curricu lum which is meaningful and relevant to serious black stu dents." Mcßride, a sophomore maj oring in physics, pointed to Malcolm X University's five planned "core courses" as an example of meaningful, rele vant curriculum material. The required course* were: Afro- American History; A Study of the Black Community; The Psychology of Racism; The Role of the Black Church in the Black Revolution; and Afro-American Political Science. Many other courses ware planned. PRICE: 20 Cents Rev. P. R.Cousin Presides Over Fifth Election At a meeting held here Mon day night and presided over by • court apppointed commission er, Rev.

The election, which was held at the church, also in cluded a full corps of officers who, with the pastor, received a vote of 262 for and 60 against. As pastor of Oak Grove, during the past 9 years, Rev. Harris has had somewhat of a stormy career. The election Monday night is hoped to have ended a series of court affairs which on several occasions (See HARRIS page 2A) Maynard Jackson Enters Race For Vice Mayor of Atlanta, Ga. By Raleigh Bryans Maynard Jackson, the 31- year-old Negro lawyer who ran against U. S. Sen. Herman Tal madge last fall, formally an nounced Friday he is a candi date for vice mayor of Atlanta. Jackson is the first to de clare for the office of vice mayor, which is held now by Sam Massell, an unannounced though obvious candidate for mayor. In his announcement, Jack son said his own candidacy is based on an assumption that Massell will not reoffer for vice mayor but "is going to offer for another office." Though a member of a dis tinguished Atlanta family, Jack son was all but an unknown when he emerged last year as a candidate against Talmadge, a political force of long stand ing. On a statewide basis, Jack son lost to Talmadge by a 3 to 1 margin, but in Atlanta proper, the youthful lawyer edged out the incumbent sena tor. He noted this Friday.

Pal mar, the Board of Directors of the N. C. Teachers Associa tion in a regular session held March 15 issued the following statement of its action and stand on the matter of a mer ger with the N. C. Education Association: Authorized the Executive Secretary to again make known its long established po sition on merger. "The North Carolina Teachers Association has requested and sought a fair and equitable merger with the North Carolina Education As sociation for more than five years. This has been and still is the desire of the NCTA. Nego tiations towards this end are at an impasse not because of 'Black Militancy/ 'Black Power,' nor desires for 'Black Separatism,' but due to the lack of men of 'Good Faith' to negotiate terms of merger based on the equality of man kind If 'Black Militancy' on the part of NCTA leadership and membership means the failure to accept the doleing out of token, general, limited terms of merger, then we own up to 'Black Militancy.' If 'Black Power' means, the fail ure of NCTA to accept a plan of merger which, when guaran tees and written assurances are to be left out and a "One-Man- One-Vote" principle is to be used to absorb the NCTA and eliminate Negro leadership, participation, contributions, and achievements by the vote of a 3-1 membership ratio, and the failure of NCTA lea dership and not stand up for what is best in the interest of all educators and education in North Carolina, then we own up to 'Black Power.'
