The United Church, largest Protestant denomination
in Canada, will make an investigation of the religious be
liefs of immigrants to that country. Charges that immigra
tion is controlled by Roman Catholic clerics who see that
only devout Catholics are eligible for entry, inspired the
action. Dr. Hugh A. McLeod, outgoing moderator, strongly
supported the investigation. Dr. Ross Cameron, moderator
of the Presbyterian Church of Canada, charged that Canada
was in danger of becoming another Spain, "where IF YOU
AREN'T A CATHOLIC YOUR MARRIAGE IS ILLEGAL, ,
YOUR CHILDREN ARE ILLEGITIMATE, and you can t
vote."

La Garde Leaves Jail To
Organize New Protests
| EDENTON, N. C. An eco
i quarantine of the down
town area started here as one in
tegration leader returned to jail
and another was freed under
bond.
The Rev. Frederick 11. La Gar
• f, °- chairman of the Edenton
Movement, said that only four
white owned stores in the whole
city are exempt from the buying
withdrawal voted by local Ne
groes. One of these is a super
market that hired a Negro as a
cashier.
“We discovered that Edenton
had some offensive weapons of
I segregation, so we are calling for
an economic quarantine,” said
j •'* r - !-»* Garde, who is also region
al representative of the Southern
( hristian Leadership Conference
! (SCLC), Atlanta.
Mr. La Garde has been out of
jail only a few days after being
arrested for defying anew city
ordinance limiting peaceful pic
keting. He and 11 young people
were jailed for picketing on two
occasions. One of the young pic
kets. Miss Barbara Roberts, was
bitten on the arm by a dog held
by one of the arresting officers.
I
The minister left jail when the
North Carolina Supreme Court
refused to hear the appeal of
Golden Frinks, another integra
i tion leader here, who was sen
tenced to 30 days in jail in Sep
-1 tember for contempt of court.
The high court’s decision re
j suited in Frinks’ return to jail
I to serve the rest of his sentence.
IHe had served 11 days when
j widespread protests resulted in
( temporary freedom.
It was decided to have Mr. La
Garde leave jail so he eould or
ganize new protests and possible
legal action to free Frinks again.
Mr. I.a Garde appealed to friends
throughout the nation to write
or wire Judge Chester Morris,
Superior Court, Edenton: Mayor
John A. Mitchcner, Edenton, and
Gov. Terry Sanford, Raleigh. N.C.
Protests were already reaching
Edenton and Raleigh because of
the arrest of the pickets. Officials'
were urged to repeal this law be-j
cause it is a violation of the free-;
speech guarantees of the First
Amendment to the U. S. Consti
tution.
Among those protesting the re
arrest of Frinks was Bishop Ed
gar A. Love, Baltimore, president
of the Southern Conference Edu-|
rational Fund (SCEF), an intc
grationist group based in New
Orleans.
The contempt charge against
Frinks resulted from a misunder
standing in court after he swore
to a warrant for the arrest of
Police Chief Leo I*e Voie. The
chief had accused Frinks of hit

leaders picketed hearings of Vir
ginia's Legislative Committee on
Offenses Against the Administra-j
tion of Justice before some ap
peared before it.
This committee has been des- j
crihed as a counterpart of the
House Un-American Activities |
Committee of the national Con-j
gross. Like the national committee
It has been accused of question
ing integration workers with the
aim of discrediting them.
Those picketing the hearings
in the Virginia State Supreme
Court and Library Building in
cluded Dr. Milton A. Reid. Peters
burg. president of the Virginia
Christian Leadership Conference,
affiliated with the Southern Chris
tain Leadership Cos nf ere nee
(SCLC), Atlanta.
The pickets carried signs ask
ing: “Freedom in Cuba and Viet
nam. but What About Freedom
in Richmond?"
Others on the picket line in- 1
eluded David Gunter, president
of the Petersburg Improvement
Association and a professor at
Virginia State College; Herbert |
Coulton. SCLC field secretary on,
voter registration, and the Rev.
Curtis Harris, president of the
Hopewell Improvement -Associa
tion , .
Mr. Harris went from the linei
of march into the hearing room.|
ting him but Frinks said it was
the chief who struck him. The
charges against Le Voie were
later dismissed in court.
The economic quarantine is the
latest in a series of fast-moving
events that have marked the in
tegration struggle in Edenton for
a year and a half.
The Edenton Movement is a
new group made up of members
of the SCLC and NAACP and
the youth divisions of both of
these organizations. Mr. La Garde
said the movement is also sup
ported by the Citizens Committee,
made up of other Negro leaders
in the community. He added that
the committee plans to present a
protest to the Town Council
against the picketing ordinance.
Woman Charged With
Negligent Homicide
In Freak Accident
Mrs. Emma Thomas, 57, of 450
East Vernor. pleaded innocent
Wednesday on the charge of neg
ligent homicide before Traffic
Judge George E. Murphy. Exami
nation was set for Nov. 29 and
Mrs. Thomas was released on per
sonal bond.
Mrs. Thomas is charged with
the death of Patrolman Gordon
Schneider, a traffic officer, who
died from head injuries sustained
Oct. 2 in a freak accident involv
ing Mrs. Thomas’ car.
Police said Mrs. Thomas parked
her car on Fort near Griswold
and left her motor running while
she went across the street to a
hank.
Mrs. Roberta Fly, 69. of 541
East Vernor. a passenger, acci
dentally pressed the accelerator
while Mrs. Thomas was gone.
Patrolman Schneider pushed a
citizen to safety, but was struck
by the car himself. He died sever
al days later in Receiving Hos
pital.
Eastern High Students Smash DSR Windows
Two Eastern High School stu
dents were found guilty of malici
ous destruction of property Thurs
day by Recorder’s Judge W. Me-;
Kay Skillman.. They were placed
on one year’s probation with
eight weekends in Wayne County
jail.
They are Harry Lcftwieh, 17,
of 4586 Pennsylvania, and Wood
row Cuffic. 17, of 4614 McCcllnn.
Another student, Jesse Culver,
17, of 4851 Cooper, arrested on
the same charge was found not
guilty.
Police said five windows in a
DSR bus were smashed by rocks
where he refused to testify on
Constitutional grounds. Including
the First Ammendment to the
U. S Constitution. This guarantees
freedom of religion, speech, press,
association, and petition.
The same stand was taken by
Gunter and the Rev. Virgil Wood,
president of the Lynchburg Im
provement Association and -a di
rector of the Southern Conference
Educational Fund (SCEF), New
Orleans.
All were asked about legal work
in civil-rights cases and the pay
ment of fees to attorneys. The !
committee was especially interest-!
ed in the actions of Lcn Holt, 1
Norfolk attorney and a member
of the SCEF Legal Committee.
The state committee inroduced
into the record a sworn statement
by a white minister from Lynch-J
burg, the Rev. John Teeter. The
statement said that Holt called
Teeter from Wood’s home and
| asked Teeter to become a plain
| tiff in a suit against segregation.!
I The state contends that such
I action by Holt is barratry which
j (s barred by state law.
Holt and Michael Standard. New
York attorney, advised the wit
! nesses not to answer questions
! pertaining to Teeter’s statement
|or to any other matter. .
For this the attorneys were
threatened with contempt eita-

Can 17c A Day Income Add

"What can you do with a coun
try in which the daily per capita
income is i7 cents?" This is the
way Julius Nycrcre, elected to
the Presidency of newly-indepen
dent Tanganyika this week-end/
phrases the challenge he faces
in seeking economic well-being
for Central Africa's poorest na
tion.
Hailed as the father of his
i country at 40 years of age,
I Nyerere has had little success
attracting foreign capital to his
country. "Sell help is our only
salvation," he concludes. "We
need people to help us help our
selves.”
Perhaps word hasn’t reached
Nyerere personally yet, hut a
large group of Michigan’s citizens
are sending him just that kind
of help next January. Through its

mittee counsel. The witnesses were
also threatened with charges of
eontempt for their refusal to
testify.
"I was interrogated, ridiculed,
and finally threatened with con
tempt by the committee," Mr.
Wood said. "I expect to be held
in contempt by the committee,
according to their statements
made during the hearing. But Ij
never expected anything less from
a committee so intent upon (
upholding white supremacy... .
"The committee, in its drive
to intimidate and destroy the mi
litant integration leadership in
Virginia, relied heavily upon what
was presented as a signed and
swore affidavit of Mr. Teeter,
who has pretended to he a friend
of the Negro and the integration
movement. We hold no animosily
toward Mr Teeter... .We forgive
him his trespass.”
Dr. Reid said the main purpose
of the current hearings seems to
be to get evidence to disbar
Holt. The attorney has a long
record of handling civil-rights
eases throughout the South and
is known for his militancy in
presenting his side of the story.

"That’s over 1000% a year,” Dug

the people escape these unscrupu

them to unbury their hidden sav

are pooled together and made av

ably and in turn increase their
economic productiveness.”

The young woman repeated

The police tried to persuade

They then called the chief of

what the charge was, as he placed
his hands out to receive hand

The officers declined to utilize
the handcuffs and proceeded to
