JITY COUNCIL GIVES
l DEMOCRACY LESSON
NORFOLK, Va. (ANP) A group of Negro school children
went to the City Council meeting here July 29 to ge.! first hand
information cn how democracy works in the yJvernmenl and got
I it, They listened to a bitter denunciation of the laxity as the ju
ve-nile and domestic relations deurf in permitting the mingling
of the races at court session.
The complaint, ’he second one made in recent months, was
made to members of the city council by W. L, Devariy Jr., white
lawyer. He said the arrangements in the court on race separa
tion are "entirely against the very spirit of our segregation laws."
"It's not my id**a if whfa's right in Virginia, 1 ' Devany con
tinued, declaring that there should be separate rooms for
the fwo races and that occupying separate seats was not enough.
Council members took no action on the issue and expressed
some doubt aas to their authority over the courts. City Manager
C. A, Harrell was requested to obtain a ruling on the question,
from City AtUrney Jonathan W. Old Jr.
During consideration of race mixing in the court of juvenile
and domestic relations City Manager Harrell presented a letter
from Judge H G. Cochran irj which he said cases involving
adults and juvenile were heard on different days. Colored per
sons sit cn one side of the detention room, he said, and whites
en the other.

WENT WITH CASEY
ON HIS LAST RIDE
The dramatic story of "Casev”
■Jones which lias made railroad
history, and has remained fur de
cades as one of the industry's
j'it standing sagas, is t ami liar tr
; most Americans.
What is not generally known
is th fact that "Casey”, an Ii
; linois Central engineer, had a Ne
: gro fireman, Sim Webb, who ac
: companied him on his fateiful
journey that memorable evening
j of April 29. 1900, which was do <

schedule. The train was travel
; mg at better than a mile a min
: ute when Sim first glimpsed the
! tail-light, of a train ahead which
I was pulling into a siding so that
! 302 could get by.
In the dull light of the cab
Sim saw Casey kick his seat out
■'from under him, and in the in
stant the emergency brakes
' grabbed every wheel on the train
; and the wistle shrieked out a
I warning. But Sim heard no morn
He plunged into the darkness
from the gangway, struck a

Even as he slid along the rough
ground the brakes back through
and the dim outlines of baggage
the whole train were screaming,
| and mail cars and the faintly
j lighted windows of the coaches
I shot past him. As the last car
j passed with sparks flying around
i its wheels, there was a deafen
|mg crash of splintering wo o d
; and hissing steam from up ahead
Then silence and utter dark
; ness again , as if a great fiery
door, thrown open for an instant
I against the night sky, had been
| slammed shut again with a
| mightv crash.
Sim staggered to his set, dazed
! 'and badly skinned and bruised,
