SUPPORT SHAW UNIVERSITY'S SOS FUND CAMPAIGN!
The poet who wrote that momentous poem, “Into The
Valley Rode The 600" must have envisioned a day like Sat
urday and Sunday of this week when 600 students of Shaw
University will take to the streets and highways of Raleigh to
save that beloved institution. Their'march will be different
from the one that the poet depicted, but it should open the
hearts and pocketbooks of every person they contact.
DOING HIS DUTY An unidentified white youth, one of
sixteen civil rights demonstrators arrested last week in Annapolis,
Md., is dragged away by a Negro police officer after staging a
sit-in. When the sixteen refused to leave a restaurant at closing
time, the group lay prostate on the sidewalk in front of the estab
lishment. Trained in the tactics of non-violence, the demonstrators
were arrested by police. (UPI PHOTO).
