NEGROES MOST INFLUENTIAL CHICAGO (UPI) — Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Robin son and James H. Meredith were included in the list of 100 most influential Negroes named this week by Ebony magazine. In a special edition commem orating the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclama tion, Ebony omitted such well known Negro personalities as heavyweight boxing champion Charles (Sonny i Liston, base ball players Willie Mays and Ernie Banks, and entertainer Eartha Kitt. The list of top Negro leaders was not a popularity poll — which Ebony said Mays, the San Francisco Giants’ all-time player, might well head up— "bul rather a list of ‘partici pants* in the slruggle for equal ity. Ebony said Mays’ and for mer heavyweight champion Joe Louis’ “influence has rarely ex tended beyond the diamond or ring.’’ Ebony said it also ex cluded “those celebrities who have let it he known their pro fessional careers and the fight for civil rights ‘don’t mix'." The list included: Philadelphia Municipal Judye Raymond P. Alexander, singer Marian Anderson, Author James Baldwin, entertainer Harry Relafonte, United Na tions Undersecretary Ralph Bundle, Manhattan Borough Presii lent Kdward R. Dudley. U. S. Circuit Judge William H. Jlaslie; Associate White House Press Secretary Andrew Hitcher, Malcolm X and ldihah Muliammed of the Black Muslims. Rep. Adam C. Pow ell. D-N.Y.. and Carl T. Ru\..m, ambassador to Finland.
