VOL PTVM tad CuJUd MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY APRIL 2 1HO Copy Coniliti of Two 141 Crests push on Negroes expanding if I demands By HELEN B SHAFFER Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Negro stu dents in southern states won the right to attend schoolwith white students through court proc esses They now have adopted direct action in seeking the right to eat in public places alongside white persons The recent rash of sitin1 demonstrations at variety store lunch counters which began a Greensboro N C on Feb 1 has been described as passive resistance It may actually pro voke more race relations trou ble than the slowmoving legal battle for school integration Negro leaders who have taken over guidance and support of the sitin movement which appar ently started and spread spon taneously laud the principles of nonviolent resistance developed by Ghandi in his campaign for the independence of India THOSE PRINCIPLES were applied by American Negroes four years ago in the celebrated bus boycott in Montgomery Ala That protest against segregated seating was marked by several bombings and by threats of other violence Socalled nonvio lent resistance tends to develop feelings of frustration in oppon ents and lead to physical attack upon the resisters This is why the sitin movement may mark the beginning of a new and dan gerous phase in the Negros campaign forfull equality with white citizens Resort to direct action though the action is no more than peaceful demonstration may be particularly dangerous in the present case because it touche a sensitive nerve among white southerners brought up in th tradition of racial segregation There is a longstanding prohi bition in the racial code of the South against white and Negr sitting at the same table to eat This is a part of the stron white aversion to social equalitj for Negroes That aversion i turn is rooted in a fear tha breaking down the barriers t racial mingling will invite inter marriage NorHi Iowa Mostly cloudy Sat

numbers of Negroes now in school and especially in college have grown impatient with the slow pace of school de segregation since the Supreme Court decision handed down in 1954 when most of them were

dissatisfaction be cause there are few decent places in the business sections of many southern communities where Negroes can buy lunch and sit down to eat it The sitin demonstrations have produced
