Mrs. Hurley said she believes

country. They have allegiance
to their country.

“Among us there are many
who abhor war, but if we’re at
war, the majority of Negroes
are going to support it.”

She predicted that the calls of
King and Carmichael for Ne-
gro youths to ignore the draft
“will be largely unanswered ex-
cept by people of SNCC and that
kind — and they are precious

In fact, she added, the na-

Congressmen like Sen. Ever-

of civil rights,’ she believes.

With 400 branches in the
Southeast, Mrs. Hurley’s NAACP

“Nobody,” she stresses, ‘‘can
speak for all Negroes. We can
only say what we think Ne-
gores ought to want.”

The: NAACP which Mrs,

turns to militance ‘only after
we've been rebuffed at every
turn,’ has picked employment
and housing as its major cur-
rent programs. However, all

branches are encouraged to

Like the other civil rights
spokesmen, Mrs. Hurley doubts
that the kind of movement that

“THE BIG JOB now is im-

what we’re dealing with is called
polities rather than emotional.

The National Urban League,

for jobs and upgrading of Ne-
gro skills through its Project
Assist, has just opened offices

S.C. Negotiations are in pro-

Heman Sweatt, associate di-
rector of the Urban League’s
Southern field office, believes
the vulnerability for exploiting
emotions still exists but ‘will
come from ‘‘spontaneous lead-

fearful of Negro unrest, are be-

greater sense of participation

dairy state, producing magnifi-
cent milk, butter and cheese.
The dairy industry of that state
has been a source of both chal-
lenge and despair to others in
the same competitive business.

But her cities also grew.
Housewives with budgets began
to patronize bootleg margarine
vendors. In the manner that li-
quor dealers will build along
highways just outside a dry
county or state, margarine deal-
ers made their goods available
near the Wisconsin line. Thrifty
housewives nearby drove across
and purchased. Those who lived
at distances depended on ser-
vices that brought the packages
in for private sale. The law,
which prohibited the manufac-
fure or sale of colored oleo and
put a tax of 15 cents per pound
on any officially imported, be-
came archaic and preposterous.

Lessened Power

As the cities grew, the rural
legislative power lessened. It
was ended when the federal
courts required reapportion-
ment to make, as nearly as pos-
sible, each voter’s ballot equal
to his neighbor’s.

A third factor, politically re-
Jated to the others, was the loss
of farm population. The power
of the Midwest farm bloc today
is still great. But it is not the
same bloc as that of even 20

But it is more than doubled by
industrial income. Jowa’s farm
population grows less and less

Wisconsin’s failure to support

nation’s agricultural life explain

Minister Quits
Pulpit to Join
Maddox as Aide

Presbyterian minister, the Rev.
Clifford H. Brewton, has re-
signed from his pastorate to be-
come an aide to Gov. Lester

“I was notified by the gover-
nor that he has appointed me to
his staff as an aide effective
June 1,’’ Brewton told his parish
by letter Saturday. ‘I have ac-
cepted the appointment and will
be moving to Atlanta.”

Brewton is pastor of the Hull
