when its head coach declared he

Some Negroes, though qualified for

The current Raleigh-Wake Coun
ty registration drive has already
added over 1.000 new names to the
registratlop roll, according to the
numerical count made by the Joint
RCA-NAACP registration commit
tee.
While every effort will be made
to enroll every eligible Negro resi
dent in the Raleigh area. specM
emphasis is being focused upon the
county townships outside the city
limits. It is within these areas
where the Negro registration is par
ticularly low.
Before the present drive be
gan. there was one township
without o single Negro regis
trant. As far as can be ascer
tained, this la the first time any
real effort has boon made to
enroll Negrooo In the voting
districts outside of Raleigh
township.
The registration committee Is
very pleased to learn that various
women’s organizations have decid
ed to take an'active part in this
registration campaign. The League
of Women, Voters, headed by Mrs.
Bertha Edwsrd*. hss announced
that on Saturday afternoon. Feb.
20, members of the League will
help round up potential registrants

of the special registration commis
sioners will be located. Other local
women's clubs will participate on
subsequent Saturday afternoons.
