See mixed convention by James Saggus associated press writer Mississippi democrats May have their first racially mixed state convention since the turn of the Century when they meet july 2 in Jackson. Party leaders from various sections of the state Are expecting some counties to Send at least some negro delegates to the state convention and some expect the state convention to elect an integrated group of National convention delegates. Negroes began participating in precinct conventions eight years ago and the number swelled four years ago to the Point where they elected some county convention delegates. The procedure by which the state democratic party selects its National convention delegates and presidential electors begins tuesday with the precinct conventions. Although there has been nothing in the Law to prevent negro voters from participating in the precinct conventions by custom they did not until this decade when More of their race registered As voters. There Are enough negro voters in some counties to control a majority of precincts and win a majority of county convention seats. If they do they can elect negro or mixed delegations to the state convention when the county conventions meet May 21. Quot i expect some negro delegates to the state convention Quot one Long time county democratic Leader and state official said. Quot but i Don t expect any trouble a we Haven t had any in the past two presidential years when negro political participation was a Novelty. Quot our White voters Are accustomed now to negro although gov. John Bell Wil cams has not made any statements about what policies he will Back at the state convention reports circulated that he has agreed to a racially mixed delegation to the National convention. The National party has made Clear it expects delegations from the South to be biracial and the election of racial barriers was regarded As a certain Way to denial of National convention seats. The state party feels this will be the first wide open democratic convention in years where the South s votes May be decisive. Capitol sources say Williams does not want to miss a Chance for Mississippi to exert some influence on the party by insisting on an All White delegation. Actually in some areas negro and White democrats have had quiet working agreements form As they both opposed the Freedom democratic faction. These agreements could result in mutually acceptable biracial delegations to county conventions unless political pressures Are exerted effectively by one line segregationist groups. Although the precinct Conven. Tons will play an All important part m the process of naming state and National convention delegates the Over All effect probably won t come clearly into perspective until the county conventions meet a week later
