In Lafayette, the chief of po lice told the group to “Go where you belong.” In New Iberia, po lice escorted the bus into the terminal and told the CORE mem bers to “Go to the colored side.” When asked, “Why?’* they re plied, “Go to the colored side.” The northern route from Shreveport to Alexandria was tested by four members of Shreveport and Baton Rouge CORE. In Monroe, the chief of police told them, “You are violating a breach of the police law by being here. You must leave.” The CORE testing teams found mixed patterns in smaller com munities without restaurant ser vice: in some of the waiting rooms were fully integrated.

The truth of the matter is that we arc not getting them (Negro candidates) even now,” he said.

The CCR is an agency created by municipal government. "It is a twofold thing. On one hand, it is the actual 15 member citi zens policy making group named by the Mayor. On the other, it is the investigative, research and educational work carried on by the professional staff. "The Commission itself," says the report, also "has the respon sibility of acting as a knowledge able advisor to municipal gov ernment on intergroup relations.” The professional staff of the CCR handles the day-to-day inter group problems which occur, and also "anticipates problem areas " To do this, the staff is divided into divisions of Investigation, Research and Information and (education. "The Commission has been ab ternately been defined as an ‘ad dress of redress’ for citizen com plaints involving interracial ten sion, a ‘trouble shooter' to hand le internal municipal intergroup tension, and a ‘third force’ to help achieve understanding be tween contending groups in the community," the report states.
