Negroes to Be
Permanent Here
Acknowledging that Kennewick
had been singularly free from ne
gro residents in the past, Mrs.
Miller, racial director for- the Na
tional Housing Authority, with
headquarters in Seattle, told local
Kiwanians that from now on there
woud be negroes housed here and
that if possible they would be
mixed in with white residents—at
least in the housing project.
Further, she continued, it has
been the experience of other plac

who movd into a community,
stayed after the emergency. She.
illustrated her talk with several
instances of where negro families
had proven better neighbors to
the whites than the white ones.
Her talk was preceded by one by
a professor from the university

dangers of race difliculties. .
