25 persons began to converge on
Windows in the Manufacturer's
Hanover Trust Bank and the
Coronet Bar were broken, but no
looting took place there. Instead,
the youths turned to a clothing
store on the corner.
Police reinforcements arrived
as the youths threw rocks and
bottles at the clothing store win-
dow gates.
When the looting began on
Harlem's largest street, most store
managers quickly closed up. Sev-
eral bars locked their doors with
patrons still inside.
In Nashville, police said Negroes
began gathering after two persons,
one a 13-year-old boy, were
wounded in a battle with police
v Police said the shooting occurred

threatening residents.
Jackson State
Jackson, Miss. police encircled
the perimeter of the predominant-
ly Negro Jackson State College
area and campus police sealed off
Lynch Street, a main thorough-
fare, through the campus area.
Earlier bricks and bottles had
been thrown at the cars of white
persons on Lynch Street. Windows
o were broken out of several cars.
Newsmen at the Masonic Tem-
ple, two blocks from the campus,
reported several Negroes had ad-
vised them to remain inside, be-
cause the situation was touchy

Another newsman reported two
Negroes got him through the area
by having him lie on the floor-

small groups they were usually
successful in ordering them off
the street.
Heavy looting was reported on
14th St. N.W. in the Columiba Rd.
and Irving St. section. Sidewalks
were heavily littered with window
