By JOHN HALL
PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (P)-One
recent night, 100 angry business
and civic leaders .filed into city
hall;, determined to stop te vi-
cious harassment of the school
Soon after desegregation of te
city's schools, nlghtrlders fired
shots Into the home of Supt. J.
EHurdleand anonym ous callers
threatened his family. Hurdle
threatened to resign.
The citizens gathered at City
Hall decided "they were not go-
ing to let a handful of nuts har-
ass our superintendent," one of
those present said afterward.
The decisions made on the Dec.
9 evening never have been made
public. But the meeting hdan
Immediate effect:' the harassment
of Hurdle stopped forthwith.
For the first time since the out-
break of racial disturbance in
Neshoba County In the early
1960's, the "establishment" of Phil-
adelphia had taken an open, or-
ganized stand for order.
Philadelphia, a town of 5,017,
is the seat of Neshoba County. The
town gained lnternationlal notorie-
ty In 1964 when three young civil
rights workers, two white and one
Negro, were slain near here. Atr
a massive, two-month search,
their bodies were 'found buried in
a farm dam.
Federal grand juries tivice 'have
returned Indictments charging a
group of citizens, Including Ne-
shoba County7 Sheriff Lawrence
Rainey and his chief deputy, Cecil
Price, with conspiring to violate
the victims' civil rights. The first
indictment, in which 17 defend-
ants were named, was dismissed
last October by U.S. Dist. Judge
Harold Cox, who said the grand
jury did not represent a cross-
section of the population. The sec-.
ond indictment, returned Feb. 28,
llsted 19 defendants. One of the
new ones was former Sheriff E. G.
Barnett, now Price's chief op-
ponent in the race for the office.
The Justice Department has
said it will push for an early
No state charges have been fil-
ed in the case. Both Rainey and
Price still are on duty, Price is
one of three candidates running in
the Aug. 8 Democratic primary
for sheriff. Rainey's four-year
term ends this year, and under
Mississippi law he cannot succeed
Speaking softly In an interview,
Price maintained that the s1ay-
ing of Michael Schwerner, James
Chaney and Andrew Goodman is
forgotten history. "You never hear
about it now," he said. "I'd say
it's a thing of the past around
He added: "I wouldn't want to
say I'm proud of anything that
happened in 1964, because I'm
Denegregatlon has come to Ne-
shobia. County with the backing of
federal law. The average white
resident doesn't like it, but real-
izes there is nothing he can do.
John Risher, a native of Phila--
delphia who operates an electron-
ics supply house, said: "Now, I
don't think the attitude of the
people ever changed. We were
conquered. You can't beat the fed-
A leader In the Negro commu-
nity agreed the town is undergo-
ing a marked change.
"Unquestionably thiings are bet-
ter," he said. "Paving and sew-
erage facilities have increased in
Negro areas. And employment is
improving gradually. There has
has been progress in voter regis-
tration without much problem."
Philadelphia's schools quietly
desegregated last fall when 18 Ne-
gro children enrolled at a for-
merly all-white elementary school
and five others began attending
high school with whites.
The administrator of Neshoba
County's general hospital, Lamar
G. Salter, won a battle with the
federal government over clear-
ance to qualify as a medicare par-
ticipant. Salter insisted that he
had complied with non-discrimi-
"There is no place in this hos-
pital where we say, 'this is for
Negroes and this is for whites',"
. Visible signs of segregation are
disappearing in Philadelphia. Un-
der federal prodding, the bus sta-
tion's facilities were Integrated,
and so were those in the court-
house. Service stations have re-
moyed racial signs from restroom
doors. The doors are kept lock-
ed and thc restrooms appear to
be patronized only by whites.
With the help of a federal vot-
er examiner, Neshoba County now
has about 1200 of its 4,686 Ne-
groes. registered. However, Negroes
comprise only 28 per cent of the
county's population, and the sher-
iff's election will hinge mainly on
how the whites vote.
