Says Politicians Holding
Back Integration In
Communities In N. C.
Sedalia, N. C. — Following a
speech here by Roy Wilkins,
NAACP executive secretary, the;
president of the North Carolina;
State NAACP received a tele
gram urging him’to “caution . . .
your man Wilkins.”
The message, sent to Kelly
Alexander of Charlotte, N. C.,
was signed by J. W. Mills of

Speaking before the Council of
Presbyterian Men of the Synod
of Catawba on August 5, Mr. Wil
kins asserted that desegregated
schools already would exist in
many North Carolina communi
ties if the choice had been left
to private citizens instead of to
The NAACP executive secre
tary charged that Beverly Lake,
assistant attorney general of
North Carolina, “has shown him
self to be the assistant attorney
general of the white people . .
Mr. Lake, said Mr. Wilkins, “is
using his high office to tell white
people how to deny black people
their rights before the law.”
“We dare the Lakes and the
Hodges and the state board of
education and the Negro stooges
over the state to let the people
decide. The people are far a
head of the politicians on this
matter, and the children and
young people are far ahead of
even their elders.”
Decrying North Carolina’s im
mobility in complying with the
Supreme Court decision holding
segregated public schools to be
unconstitutional, Mr. Wilkins de
“Personally, I have been dis
illusioned about this state. I had
come to believe, as had most of
the United States, that your dec
laration that you were the ‘most
progressive southern state in race
relations’ was true. . . Your
whole state was thought to be
liberal on the race question, and
far ahead of the rest of the South.
Yet on this public school ques
tion, Texas and Oklahoma and
Arkansas are far ahead of you.”
LICENSE IS COSTLY
Intentional or not, fishing with
out a permit is illegal according
to Nebraska state law. To most
sportsmen, this is pretty basic
and self-evident; yet, according
to a Game Commission spokes
man, fishing without a permit is
by far the largest single type of
violation apprehended by Conser
vation Officers this time of the
in most courts in the state, vio
lators of this law find that little
sympaty is extended to them.
Besides the time lost, either from i
their fishing trip or from work,
to appear in court; the actual
fine, court costs and liquidated
damages can amount to a tidy
Take a hypothetical case: Joe
Loaks doesn’t fish much but he i
is today, with no permit, of
course. Why Joe has never seen1
a game warden in all his trips
into the field. He has caught i
three nice bullheads and one four |
pound channel catfish. Good j
thing the warden doesn’t check)
this spot along the river. “Oh oh, |
who is that walkng back there on
the path ? Oh no, a warden I”
If Joe is processed through a '
typical court, the judge will fine j
him $5 plus $4 court costs. This !
is about average throughout the!
But this is only the beginning, j
For each illegally taken gamej
fish that Doaks has in his posses
sion, he will be expected to pay'
liquidated damages. This is a
legal means of reimbursing the!
State of Nebraska or the people
of Nebraska, for the monetary
value of the illegally taken fish.
These damages could run as high
as $5 per fish.
Let’s total Joe Doaks bill —
$29 is about right. “Just about
right?” Joe screams. Well, exact
ly right as far as the money is
concerned. Most sportsmen would
be highly mortified to have the
reputation of being a game law
violator. This is a hidden but an
important cost to violators.
All of this because Joe Doaks
forgot or didn’t want to spend a
mere $1.50 for a fishing permit;
one of the most inexpensive fish
ing permits in the country.
