Policy Restricts Negro Registration NEW YORK.—Citing comparative figures of Negro reg istration in North Carolina and those of citizens of British Guiana, Roy Wilkins, NAACP executive secretary, asserts in a letter to Senator Samuel J. Ervin (D. t N. C.) that “it is fair to deduce that a policy is in operation in North Caro lina designed deliberately to restrict the registration of Negro citizens to vote.” When Mr. Wilkins appeared before the Senate Subcommit tee on Constitutional Rights on Feb. 19. Senator Ervin stated that there was no re striction against Negroes reg istering and voting in North Carolina. He expressed the opinion that the relatively low registration was due to apathy or to occasional hostility of registrars in a few localities. According to a story published in The New York Times, 75 per | cent of adult citizens in British Guiana are registered to vote, ; Mr. Wilkins told the Senator in a letter dispatched today. On | the other hand, he pointed out, only 20 per cent of eligible North Carolina Negroes are reg istered. “British Guiana is not ordi narily classified by Americans as on a par with a sovereign state in the United States, cer tainly not a state like North Carolina,” the NAACP leader said. “Yet the percentage of registered voters would seem to be much higher than that of the Negro citizens of North Caro lina, and very much higher than this same registration in other southern states.” • “We believe,” the letter con tinues, “that federal action to protect the right to register and vote is clearly indicated and that the pending civil rights bill should be passed. We believe, further, that the condition re vealed is of such proportion*?, and of such long standing, that the Attorney General of the United States should be given the authority to institute civil action as provided by the pend ing measure.” Wins Fellowship To Harvard Edward D. Irons of Florida A and M University has been granted a fellowship by the graduate school of business of Harvard University to study towards the doctoral degree.

Governor Urges Citizens To Join NAACP BOSTON.—Gov. Foster Fur* ”010 has urged citizens of Massa chusetts to support the member ship drive of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in this state. In a proclamation designat ing April as "NAACP Mam bership Month." the Governor noted that "the NAACP is an organisation in the service not only of the Negro, but also of the nation as a whole."

Case Operator Refuses Supreme Court Ruling HOUSTON, Texas—When the United States Supreme Court last week ordered the cafeteiia in the basement of the Harris County courthouse to serve Ne groes on a non-discriminatory basis as whites are served, the management served notice that the case would close its doors before it would bow to the orders of the High Court. The County Commissioners court has approved a request from W. F. Derrington, the ope rator, that his two-year lease be terminated. Luster Allen Jr., board presi dent of the County Employes union, said county workers would meet Monday to form an organization for operation of the cafeteria as an eating place for the employes and their guests. Allen said three county work ers had applied for a charter to form an employee club. He said the cafeteria probably wtould re open Tuesday on a club basis. This would allow employees to set up rules on who could use the cafeteria. M W. Plummer, attorney who filed the suit to end segregation at the cafeteria, has said he would oppose any ‘‘subterfuge" to reopen the cafeteria on a seg regated basis.
