as a result of shootings.
Vincent was shot five times
-with a .22 calibre pistol by his
wife after an argument at their
home, located in the Morganton

Mrs. Vincent told Sheriff C. H.

band because he was threatening
her witB a heavy wrench handle
after he had forced his way in
to a room she had locked for
her safety.

Attendance Of
Bias Schools
is Challenged
The legal fight against Jim
Crow in public schools toook a
new and complicated twist last
week as NAACP lawyers chal
lenged the validity of compul
sory school attendance based on
segregation laws. Attorneys for
the National Association for the
Advancement' of Colored
pie filed an appeal on January
9 on behalf of Negro parents of
West Point, Va., who were con
victed of violating tjhe- state’s
compulsory attendance law be
cause they refused to send their
children twenty miles out of
town to a Jim Crow high school
over which the town’s school
board has no jurisdiction.
The so-called “West Point
school strike” came about when
the school board closed the Ne
gro high school in that town and
ordered parents to send their
children to Hamilton-Holmes
High School, twenty miles out
side the corporate limits of the
town. When the Negro parents
refused to do this and presented
their children to the all-white
West Point High School for en
rollment, admission was refused
on the ground that it would vio
late the state’s segregation laws.
But, states the NAACP brief,
“the school authorities of the
Town have not afforded any
other public secondary school to
which their attendance can law
fully be required although de
fendants at all times have t>een
ready, able and willing to send
their children to such a school.

A 2t year-old man tried to cMonitt suiride in tts DatfesM
County Jail last Wednesday night In an attsav te wifte ttmi
chapter to a series of perteps one sf tte sMst ssfirt—sis ssO sf
eoincidenecs that fate can ^in.
Clar»«e..(Buster) Jones, a mild mannered chap, was rtlssssd
from LinMln Hospital Snnday after what he hopes Is the cad t* a
series of unhappy Incidents, both apparently invohriagsMnss sf
mistake, identity. Jones’ story may well refute the oM numlai,
“lightning never strikes twice in the same place.”
Jones was taken to the hospital from the city Jail here anvty
Thursday morning where he had tried to hang hImmeU ia Ub csO
from a noose fa^ioned out of his underwear.
At the hospital where he was pronoanced mentally balnassd,
the obvioasly distraught, and distnrbed Jones told repsrtsts aad
police that he tried to "end it all” because he felt the cards were
M well stacked against him that no matter hew hard he tried, he
was eertala to fall victim to some unlucky incident.
In brief, here is Jones’ story concerning the two cases of ads-
taken ideatlty which made him want to stop living.
A little over a year ago while travelling from Georgia, where
he had worked in a pulp mill, to his home in New Jersey, he sts»
ped off in Lanrinburg, intending to stay there for a few hours. His
grandparents live in nearby Mazton, and he planned to see them
before going on to New Jersey.
Before he could get over to nearby Maxton to see them, poHrf
arrested him on the streets for the robbery of a service statlsa in
Lanrinburg. He was convicted and sent to prison at LilUagtoa
where he sored nearly 13 months of an IS months aenteac*.
Released on parole for his good behavlM' f^om the lillHagtea
prison a few days ago, he decided, with 13 dollars ia his pocket,
and a fifth grade education, to continue his journey to New Jersey
which was forcibly interrupted by the prison term.
He stepped off the bns at Durham and while strolling down
main street near the main police precinct station, was spotted by
police and arrested again, this time for the murder of a Baltimore
druggist last June.
The arresting officers nabbed him because they thought he
fitted the description of the murderer supplied them by an artist’s
drawing of the suspect. The artist's sketch was made from a verbal
description given police at Baltimore.
Although Jones protested his innocence, stating that he waa
yerying a prison term in LUlington at the time the murder was
commltted~;;he was lodged in Jail and stated that he was beatea by
officers who tried to get a confession from him.
