Candidate for
N.Qegislature
STATESVILLE—From States
ville comes the report this week
that interest among Negro vot
ers of Iredell County in the
May 28 Democratic Primary is
at the highest peak in many
years.
With the announcement sev
eral weeks ago that T. V. Man
gum, promient Negro undertak
er and business man of States
ville, had entered the race as
a Democratic candidate for
County Commissioner, interest
has continued to mount until
it has reached the point where
it is believed that Mangum has
a good chance of being victori
ous in the race.
As thp only Negro candidate
for public office in the entire
county If is believed that Man
gum will not only receive a
sizable vote from those of his
own race but wide support from
white voters of the rural sec
tions of the county as well as
Statesville where he lives and
his business is located.

Plans for Big
Expansion are
Given Council
The trustees of Lincoln Hos
pital pri-ented a- proposal for
expansion of its facilities to
the Health Planning Council
for Central Carolina Monday
at a meeting held at the Caro
lina Inn in Chapel Hill accord
ing to F. W. Scott, director of
the hospital.
The proposed expansion
plans ,to cost some 53.5 million,
would increase Lincoln's pa
tient load from 100 to 150, pro
vide for construction of a new
nurses' home, laundry, boiler
plant and resident staff quar
ters.
No action was taken by the
council during its closed ses
sion. Officials of Watts Hospi
tal had earlier suggested a
$14.1 million expansion of that
facility with hopes that Watts
absorb the functions now pro
vided by Lnicdln.
Lincoln officials have indi
cated desires that Lincoln,
which was founded 65 years
ago continue the role it has
taken since its origin in prov
ing medical care and medical
training.
It was not immediately de
termined what, if any, effect
the presence of the two pro
posals before the council would
have on each other. However,
Scott reported that the Lincoln
trustees are scheduled to meet
with the County Commission on
May 30. After that time, he
said, a more detailed report
will be made concerning the
plans.
Under the plan presented at
the meeting, the portion of the
Lincoln plant constructed in
1942 will be demolished and
the wing which was construct
ed in 1953 will be remodeled.
Watts trustees are making
efforts to hold a bond election
in September to provide a ma
jor portion of the needed funds
for the Watts expansion.

interracial staff since its be-

Housing Color Line
SAN FRANCISCO—In a 5-to

cision invalidating the state's
anti-Negro Proposition 14 which
permitted racial discrimination
in housing.
The ruling, handed down
on May 10, culminated a long
and costly struggle by the Na

vancement of Colored People
and other fair housing advo
cates. One of the six cases on
which the court based its de
cision was filed and argued by
Nathaniel Colley, the NAACP's

Under Proposition 14, adopt

housing made legal. In hold
