A “good friend of 20 years’*—one who didn't brother to sign an agreement to pay $4,400 worth of remodeling costs for llulan Jack's apartment because they “trusted each other", now claims it was Mr. Jack who wanted to lie his way out of situation while he, Sidney Ungar. stuck to the truth. Sneers filled the courtroom as unbelieving ears heard Attorney Sidney Ungar take the stand and testify obviously "to save his own skin", Mr. Jack, sitting nearby, was surprised to hear Unger's words of how he exclaimed "God, Hulan, what is the matter with you? When are you going to understand what is going on. There is now a grand jury in vestigation. Do you know what that means?" Jack is supposed to have ans wered that he would stick to his story—which Ungar now claims is the absolute untruth. He said he told Jack “If I am called, one thing is sure—l’ve got to tell the truth. I’m going to tell the truth. It's not too late." Ungar even brought Mrs. Jack into the testimony. He says in Petition Campaign for King Terminates July 15 The petition campaign conduct ed during April and May by the Committee to Defend Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is being terminated by July 15th, it was announced today.

We are confident that this loss of customers from your stores is oitly a beginning we promise that in the months to come we shall continue our work to inform the public as to the issues involved and we look forward confidently to an oven more massive loss of business from your store as the people become fully aware of the nature of the discrimination that you practice in the South and of the ominous implications of this policy for the future of American democracy. We arc confident that you also, will sec not only that this policy is inherently unde mocratic but that it is also econo mically unwise.” The support of the petition campaign, the Committee contin ued. indicated a desire for full equality “among all sections of our people and in all sections of our country."

To 'd/1 to the dramatics, Ungar paused appropriately, removed his glasses, made a move to wipe tears from his eyes, and cleared his throat. Lie was Prepared Sidney Ungar came to the stand seemingly to use any methods of getting himself "off the hogk." Whatever the Grand Jury wanted to hear, he was ready to tell. Holding nothing sacred, he began by stating that Hulan Jack plan ned the lie for the District At torney and nothing would move him from telling it. He gave the impression that he begged and pleaded with "his friend Jack" to please tell the truth-that it was better that way. But the Borough President, stuck to his lie, Ungar said. Before the session was over, Sidney Ungar and Jack's defense lawyer, Carson DeVVitt Baker, were practically to the list-fight stage. They shouted so excitedly that Judge Sarafite had to call for order or charge contempt of tory policies, have conic in from [over thirty states and the District of Columbia.

Insisting he has done nothing wrong, Ungar’s story was broken I down by Baker with sarcasm in j his voice. “If you * had nothing Ito hide—if you had done nothing wrong—why then are you afraid? Ungar, visably shaken, answered “I got myself involved for no reason at all—just to help a friend." "You mean you got yourself involved to take advantage of a so-called friend, don't you?" Baker snapped back, acidly. “Tell me where I took ad- J vantage of him—and how and when” replied Ungar. “You knew when you sent Bach tel. the contractor, to Jack's apart ment to redecorate it that it was a violation of the City Charter.” j Ungar said he did not.

Minnesota : Convention of the NAACP threw its entire weight behind the youthful "sit-in” demonstrators all ! around the United States. The ; final resolution on "sit-in's” pledged continuing financial, legal and participatory support. I These youth whose mass, direct | action against segregation is aim i ed at bringing about complete Freedom for the Negro American ai the earliest possible time won the endorsement of the delegates ! "without reservation”. The battle cry "FREEDOM NOW" as endorsed by the youth was also acclaimed by the body at-large and indeed, in the vic tory celebrations over the sur render of northern Virginia's se* greationist policies at lunch count ers one of the most widely known members of the NAACP Board of Directors carried a picket sign that read "Not 63 but FREEDOM NOW for me". The idea of act ing together now to assure Free dom by 1963 has really caught on. Perhaps with the admonition in mind that was carried recently in a nationally-circulated maga zine that the "sit-ins" may bring violence, th e NAACP expended its racial defense policy to in clude its youth. The NAACP de fense policy as stated in the Preamble to the Convention Re solutions reads "we reject vio lence. . . .(but) in rejecting vio lence, we do not deny, but reaf firm, the right of individual and collective self-defense against un lawful assaults". If the "sit-ins" do bring violence, NAACP pa rents and adults have let it be krown that they will defend their youth. Phoan Goldman. Scc’y.
