Brownwood Bulletin (Newspaper) - October 3, 1962, Brownwood, Texas Microfiin. Service P.O. Box 8066 FEDERAL FORCE MAINTAINS OLE MISS PEACE By EDMOND LEBRETON OXFORD. Miss. (AP'-A pair of effigy hangings disturbed the returning calm on the University of Mississippi campus today as a dwindling federal force maintained the peace. Between midnight and dawn, some 35 .students gathered in front of the apartment of James It. Meredith, the university's first known Negro student, set fire to en effigy and exploded fireworks. The alert, military quickly moved in and quelled the demonstration. There were no arrests. Shortly after daybreak, a dummy clad in a blue, pink and white uniform dangled from the second- floor window of a building near the Mereditn apartment building. A sign hanging from the neck ot the dummy said to “Go back to Africa where you belong.'’ Attendance at the university dropped after tli« enrollment of Meredith, a 29-year-old Negro from Kosciusko. Many students had returned to their homes after the weekend riots iii which two men died. University chancellor J. D. Williams appealed to the students to return. He said he had been informed the Ole Miss campus is now secure, and that parents can Ik* assured of the complete safety of sons and daughters. Meredith spent his second day as a student Tuesday, accompanied to classes by federal marshals. There were no demonstrations. PROBATION In another development over Mississippi'!, defiance of federal court orders to enroll Meredith, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans gave Gov. Ross Barnett a form of probation until Get I? on Hic contempt citation against him. This apparently was a move designed to te*. Barnett’s willingness to accept Meredith's entry into the university. Barnett, who was not in court, had no comment on the decision. He could be subject to $10,000 fine daily and imprisonment. Army authorities announced a cutback in the 12.000-man federal force Tuesday night. Ut. Col. Roger Whiting, public information officer for the Army field command in Oxford, said two battle groups —about 2,400 men—left Oxford for Memphis while a third group of 1.200 was redeployed to Columbus, Miss.
