MEMPHIS, (ANP) — ComiinssI
ioner of Public Safety Boyle
Wednesday afternoon notified the
Memphis Commission for Inter
roolAl Cooperatioi th* hs- Win^ild
meet with them to discuss bette'
white-Negro relations in Memjrfiif
but that the conference would be
limited to the commission'g white
minister members only.
His notice was sent to Dr. Sam
E. Howie, white, president of the
commisaion, in response to a re
newed request by a special com
mittee appointed by the com
mission for a conference with city
officials on the nue^tion of better
race relations, for which the or
ganization was formed.
The first request for such a
conference met a firm refusal
from Boyle, who pointed out that
hp considered certain conuniasion
members inimical to better racial
elations here.
Plans are bein^ made by the
interracial group to stasfe a mass
of. whites^-aud._Ne(qraefi
here in February to promote im
prove racial relations, with Dr.
Will W. Alexander, executive
’ secretary of the National G. I. C.
and administrator of the Farm
Security adminLstation, «s prin
cipal speaker.
Boyle’s letter said in part: “It

racial nuestion with your com-
