_ _ . - WASHINGTON AND VICINITY—COMICS—RADIO MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 1950 . Negro Leaders Promise New Test at Beach Second Swim Party Called Off to Avoid Further Trouble By J. L. Michael Special $*ar Correspondent COLONIAL BEACH, Va.. Aug. 7. —Promises of new tests by Negroes of equal swimming rij/its lent an air of suspense today to this Potomac River resort, where fight ing broke out Saturday. Yesterday, in an atmosphere of mounting tension, colored leaders called off a second swimming party at the request of Mayor Nor man P. Brewington. The issue was made clear cut, however, whan Attorney Martin A. Martin, colored, of Richmond, asserted: “We will be back—maybe to morrow, maybe the next day, surely within a week. We will swim at Colonial Beach.’’ One Man Arrested. Saturday’s flghtfng among 200 whites and Negroes began after Mr. Martin had led a group into the water and out, without inci dent. It was when other colored bathers emerged that the melee began, resulting in two minor stabbings to white persons, an attack on two newspaper pho tographers and their equipment, and a general mauling of com batants. Police arrested one man, Eugene Johnson, colored, of Colonial Beach. Charged with stabbing, he was removed to Westmoreland County Jail at Montross for safe keeping, but later released on $500 bond. A less-than-usual Sunday crowd of 3,000 was on the beach yester day while Mayor Brewington con ferred with the town council. Town people said many regular visitors stayed away, and that many others on hand Saturday had driven home. Won’t Set Aside Section. Most of the 16 State policemen called in Saturday were not evi dent yesterday, but four remained outside the Town Hall with Sheriff Charles V. English and a deputy while the conferences were under way. Mr. Martin told the Mayor that a group of Negroes were preparing to swim at 1 p.m. and asked for police protection. Mr. Brewington said the Town Council’s special session had studied requests by Negro leaders for "adequate” police protection and an allocation of a certain section of the beach. He said town sentiment was against the latter proposal. The council decided to provide "all the protection we now have —then leave it- up to the officers to maintain order in the com munity,” Mr. Brewington added. The town has a police force of nine, one of whom is on sick leave. Suit Before Federal Court. Mr. Brewington made clear to Mr. Martin the council’s stand that Negroes legally are entitled to use the beach. “I am not telling them to go or not to go into the water,” the mayor said. "But you do not have to go swimming today. It is not necessary to force the issue immediately.” He pointed out that people of both races were "tremendously aroused” and suggested that, in time, the issued could be peace ably settled. Saturday’s test rose from a request about a year ago that a section of the beach be set aside for Negroes. The town did not act and Negroes sued in Federal District Court, Richmond, charg ing discrimination. The town answered with a denial that Negroes had been de prived of the use of the beach. Saturday’s appearance by the colored swimmers was to test that statement. Mahoney Isn't Guest Of Gardner at Lunch George P. Mahoney, a candi date for the Democratic guber natorial nomination against Maryland’s Gov. Lane, won’t be a luncheon guest of Allen H. Gardner, Montgomery County charter leader, after all. Robert W. Beall, Democratic candidate for the State Senator who heads a slate of independent candidates calling themselves the Free Democrats, said a spokes man for his group had made that announcement Saturday in error. The spokesman had reported Mr. Mahoney would be Mr. Gard ner’s guest at the Cosmos Club In Washington today.
