At the Institute of Government, Paul
told of harassment he had received as
attorney for the coalition.
"I'll go to jail if the others go to jail,
and my family will march when they
march," said Paul. Both his wife and
daughter were at the rally and the march.
"We're asking the Institute of

lives not to take them," he said. "We ask
that Billy Day be dismissed from the

Paul, a white lawyer, has been with the
group since the start of the Pitt County
disturbances in mid-August.
Both Frinks and Paul urged UNC
students to participate in the march
Friday in Ayden and to write Gov. Bob
Scott in support of the blacks in Pitt
Although the rally and the march
consisted mainly of blacks, there were
some whites in the group. One of the
white students in the march asked Frinks
if whites were wanted in the protest.
"Let me put it this way," he said, "if I
sat down to play the piano and played
only the white keys, I would get nothing.
If I played the black keys by themselves,
1 would get nothing. But if I played them
together, I would get harmony, and that
is what we want."
Near the end of the rally, Frinks
revealed plans of the Pitt County group
to recruit marchers for Friday's protest in
Ayden. He said tables will be set up
outside the Student Union and UNC law
school so those interested in going may
be contacted and given rides.
