(’ 11. Ehringhaus of North Carolina and Solicitor W. Y Hickett. The NAACP investigator, a southern white man revealed in his report the names of nine members of the mob of twenty -five to thirty who lynched Ward at Louisburg at eleven o’clock in the forenoon. Among the alleged lynchers are several coun ty and city officials. A second startling dsdosure made by the NAACP s that a mem ber of the Natonal Guard, sent to Louisburg to prevent the lynching and restore order, Is reported to h; e cut a toe from Ward’s foot as a grisly souvenir Members of the National Guard sent to Louisburg from Henderson. N. C. arrived after the lynching had taken place. The Investigator’s report re veals that Ward was known to be insane and had hnd frequent spells of violence. The NAACP charges that the State of North Carolina is indirectly responsible for the homicidal attacks made by Ward prior to his death on his female cousin and two men. one of whom he killed, in that the State should have long since placed Ward In an institution for the Insane.
