us a helping hand. Handicapped
folks have much more leisure time,
so why not some kind of recrea

BOATSMAN REMOVED AFTER
ATTACK ON NEGRO SEAMAN
As the result of NAACP inter

have removed the boatswain
from the American cargo ves
sel P and T Navigator becanse
of the man’s attempts to pro
voke racial violence on board
ship, it was revealed here last
week by Herbert Hill, NAACP
The boatsman, Alvin Giesy, is
being held for prosecution in Long
Beach, California, where the
ship was docked when he was
approached by the Coast Guard
on July 31, Mr. Hill said.
A complaint of Mr. Giesy’s
threats of violence against Negro

to Mr. Hll by the Negro seaman
when the vessel dcked in New
York harbor in June.
Mr. Hill demanded action by
the Goast Guard to remove Mr.
Giesy from the P and T Navigat

the steamship company that the

WILKINS URGES JUSTICE
DEPARTMENT PROBE OF
TERROR IN MISSISSIPPI
The mounting tension in the
| State of Mississippi accompanied
by threats of death to registered
Negro voters and other acts of in
timidation require prompt federal
intervention, Roy Wilkins, execu
tive secretary of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People, said last week
in letter to Attorney General
Mr. Wilkins enclosed unsigned
death threats received through
the mails by a Lowdes county
school teacher and his wife, two
of three Negrqes registered to
vote .in that county. He also
cited the action of Tom J. Tubb,
chairman of the Clay County
Democratic executive committee,
ordering the ballots of all Negro
voters in Tuesday’s Democratic
primary turned over to him. A
United Press dispatch quotes
Tubb as saying: “We don’t intend
to have Negroes voting in this
Reports of NAAtCP officials in
the state indicating widespread
terror in connection with the gu
bernatorial contest and the school
desegregation issue were also cited'
in Mr. Wilkins letter. The situa
! tion is such, he told Mr. Brownell,
that “the president of our state
organization in Jackson has had
to request pplice protection.”
These incidents and threats, the
NAACP leader told the Attorney
General “warrant prompt action
by your department to avert vio
lence and to protect Negro citi
zens in their right to vote.”
“No responsible official,” he
continued, “from the Governor
and the United States senators
on down, no institution nor any
leading white citizen in the entire
state of Mississippi has spoken
out for decency and fairplay
these hysterical weeks just past.
Indeed, the White Citizens Council
assertedly composed of substant
ial leaders in each county, have
encouraged the baiting and intim
idation of Negroes.”
Negroes in Mississippi, Mr.
Wilkins said, “have no recourse
except to their Federal Govern
ment. In the midst of a civilized
nation in 1955, they are in a
jungle of race hatred and terror,
at the mercy of any hoodlum who
chooses to attack. The ballot,
the weapon of free men has been
taken from them by force. They
are helpless except for such other
weapons as they may possess and
may or may not choose to employ.’’
The Department of Justice, the
NACCP spokesman said “should
act without delay” and send in
outside agents, uninfluenced by
local contacts, to make a thorough
investigation in preparation for
