Protest March
Starts Boycott
In Greensboro
GREENSBORO, N. C.— A protest
march through the city recently
in which hundreds of permits par
tieipated, has set off a boycott of
downtown stores.
Initiating the boycott was the
the Greensboro CORE group, j
which for three weeks has been
mass picketing the Mayfair and
S & W cafeteria in an attempt to
nuin service for Negroes.
In a letter to the Merchants As
sociation, William Thomas, chair
man of Greensboro CORE wrote
"We are requesting that you use
your influence in order to help
u-> in our efforts. Should you be
unwilling to do this, then we
have no alternative but to launch
a selective buying campaign
against the entire downtown area."
Stanley Culbrcth, executive vice
president of the Merchants As
sociation announced that Thomas’s
letter had been referred to store
members but that the association
was taking no action. The boycott
of the downtown area resulted.

The project—making leather
tote bags"—grew to the extent
that now some seventy-five land

from this industry. The tote bags

If and when we learn to live in
the age of abundance—using aburt
, dance wisely and effectively—di
recting our abundant potential
to the benefit of all men—the
abundance will be truly an un
inixcd blessing ..
The Secretary said the Agricul
tural Act of 19(>2 lays the ground
work for advancing toward ful
ler use of the potential of the
age of abundance through the
strengthening of rural America.
Turning again to the relation
ship of abundance to peace, the
Secretary said, “Throughout all
human history the spectres of
cold, hunger and want have
driven men to tight, to exploit,
and to suppress other men in
a life-and death competition for
physical, material needs that seem
ed to scarce to go around.
“I do mean to say,” he con
tinued. that if and when the
world learns to produce and dis
tribute material g iods in suffici
ent supply to meet all human
needs we will have an end of
prejudice, to discrimination, or to

“No human problem is that
simple” the Secretary added. “But

abundance offers us a tremend
