This policy was contested In a dramatic incident Petersburg, Va. over the Eas ter week end which has resulted in legal repercussions. Pauli Murray and Adelene^ jitcBean, lJI New York City, tiie Ciwtestauts were arrested ^P-d u;rown into prison on Saturday, March 2’3rd following a dispute with Frank liorris, bus driver fvr the Greyhound Lines. The yOung women were on their way I'l Durl>4.n, North Carolina. Pauli Murray who had recently left the hospital after a serioiia .l^neas was rushing home to spend Eater week with her mother 4od aont and Miss McBean was ac companying her. In Richmond they were assign ed to ,ua old style Greyhound relief bus. Halfway between Kiehmcod anu Petersburg, Miss McBean complained of a pain in her side which was intenaified by the discomiSrt of the r^ae: wJheel-«eat. PJvuli Murray ap proached the driver, Frank W. Morris, explained Miss Mc- Bean’s pij^icainent, and asked him if he would .be kind enough t'j move forward two young white children to Uis smpty seLts behind the driver’s s«at. Morris pushed Pauli Murray backward ^lad ordered h • r r}iig4ily to sit down. She asked ai;ain emphasizing Miss Mc- Be^li’s discomfort with similar results. She then appealed to tie mother of the children, ex plaining the situation. The mo- ti er refused to reseat her child ren stating that the driver would take c«re of it. Thus thf- matter stood until the bus reached Peterrfnirg. In Petersburg, about fifteea or twenty Negroes crowded to- wand the ent^.lice, apparently to beard the bus. Several people got off and the remaining pu»> engers both Negro and white moved forward, the Negroes m.re comfortable seats, the whites to make room for the incoming Negroes. Pauli Murray and Miss McBean moved forward one seat. They found it out of place tVid after trying ttnsuceesa fi'ily to fix it. they* moved into the next forward seat, the fourth short row from the rear cf the bus and behind all white psssangers.
