Mrs. Hurley said she believes

j country. They have allegiance

Among us there are many
s who abhor war, but if we're at
e war, the majority of Negroes
e are going to support it."
She predicted that the calls of
King a nd Carmichael for Nes gro youths to ignore the draft
"will be largely unanswered except by people of SNCC and, that
kind - and they are precious
few."
In fact, she added, the nation 's record of greatest advances in r ace relations has OC·
curred in time of war . War, a lthough unfortunate, "throws
men together and allows them
to understand each other."
SHE DESCRIBED King's
contention that the war takes
away from the anti-poverty program as " baloney."
Congressmen like Sen. Everrett Dirksen, R-Ill., " are throwing stumbling blocks in the way
of civil rights," she believes.
The money is available, but not
appropriated.
With 400 branches in the
Southeast, Mrs. Hurley's NAACP
is touching more individuals
• tha n any civil rights organization.
"Nobody," she stresses, "can
speak for all Negroes . We can
a only say what we think Negores ought to want."

Like the other civil r ights
spokesmen, Mrs. Hurley doubts
that the kind of movement that
existed in the earlier 1960s, will
return .

The National Urban League,

A civil-rights movement will

" but at a differe nt level than

dairy state, producing magnificent milk, butter and cheese.
The dairy industry of that state
has been a source of both chalJenge and despair to others in
the same competitive business.
But her cities also grew .
Housewives with budgets began
to patronize bootleg m argarine
vendors. In the manner that liquor dealers will build along
highways just outside a dr y
county or state, margarine dealers m ade their goods ava ilable
near the Wisconsin line. Thrifty
housewives nearby drove across
and purchased. Those who lived
at distances depended on services that brought the packages
in for pr ivate sale. The law,
which pr ohibited the m anufacture or sale of colored oleo and
put a tax of 15 cents per pound
on any officially imported, became archaic a nd preposterous.

As the cities grew, the rural
legislative power lessened. It
was ended when the federal
courts required reapportionment to make, as nearly as posible, each voter's ballot equal
to his neighbor 's.
A third factor politically related to the othe~s was the loss
of farm populatio~. The power
of the Midwest farm bloc today

But it is more than doubled hy
industrial income. Iowa's farm
population grows less and less
as farms grow larger and become more mechanized.
Wisconsin 's fa ilure to support
butter " m anufact w·ed by God"
and other modifications in the
nation's agricultural life explain
much about America and the
change that continues, day after
day.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A
Presbyterian minister, the Rev.
Clifford H. Brewton, has resigned from his pastorate to become an aide to Gov. Lester

" I was notified by the governor that he has appointed me to
his staff as an aide effective
J une 1," Brewton told his parish
by letter Saturday. "I have accepted the appointment and will
be moving to Atlanta."
Brewton is pastor of the Hull
Memorial Presbyterian Church,
