Overtones of Black Power
According to Roose, at the be-.,
ginning of the mass activating of
CHIP, some of the local commun-
ity leaders were doubtful and felt
that perhaps a project connected
with Wade House should not be
involved in something which had
overtones of Black Power and
might turn into a race riot. Since
the results have been productive,
opposition for the most part has

after Malcolm X, and five years
before that they were after Mar-
tin Luther King. Who will they be
after five years from now?
The local organizations of Wade
House have also been opposed to
the Greater Chester Movement, a
program of the Office of Economic
Opportunity. Until recently, this
group, like all poverty programs,
has not involved local residents of
the ghetto on the city wide steer-

productive. In the last two years,
the Chester movement has spent
$2;400,000.. There are questions

Riots in 1964
The Greater Chester Movement
was set up as a result of the race
riots in 1963-64. The riots were
caused by inferior educational
facilities in a local elementary
Roose also points out that CHIP
is not a civil rights movement but
rather a movement for the poor-
white and black. Organization of
poor whites is a part of the long
range goal. "If issues which are
common to both poor whites and
poor blacks are dealt with, I think
the two groups will work together.
I'd like to try this type of organ-
izing," Roose said.
In addition to CHIP, the settle-
ment also has local programs con-
cerned with education, recreation,
and outside contact. Eighty-four
students from Swarthmore College
have recently volunteered to work
for the settlement, primarily doing
research into existing social con-
ditions in the area'
