Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Uneasy calm hangs over U.S. city COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) Po- lice fought running gun battles with snipers in predominantly- black sections of Columbus early Sunday before an un- easy calm settled over the racially-troubled city. Police Capt. M. Rand said both police cars and fire trucks drew repeated gunfire as they passed through black neighbor- hoods. He said police exchanged bul- lets with snipers as firemen fought flames in several va- cant houses. He said no one apparently was hit and there were no arrests. The fires, Rand said, appar- ently were started by fire- bombs. City council granted emer- gency powers to Mayor J. R. Allen Saturday night, and the mayor issued a proclamation prohibiting gatherings of more than 12 persons on streets and sidewalks. The city has been racially tense since several nights of violence erupted in mid-June after seven black policemen were fired for participating in a demonstration.
