from 1:00 to 3 P.M. Monday through Friday, and Saturday 9:30 'til11:30 A.M.

CHICAGO (UPS) - At 2 p.m.
Monday, Oct. 31, a truck laden
with food left the University of
Chicago, and at 6 a.m. Nov. 1,
it arrived in Sommerville, Tenn.
in the heart of Fayette County.
An independent group of stu-
dents traveled to Fayette County
to deliver the food to Negro citi-
zens black-listed by Fayette
County merchants for their at-
tempts to register and vote in the
1960 elections, and to gather in-
formation and films on the situa-
tion there for presentation to the
nation's students.
Sheriff Stops
During the trip, they were stop-
ped by Fayette County sheriff who
told them, "We don't want you
hanging around;" were met in
neighboring Haywood County by
the sheriff there who escorted
them back to the county line, and
were accosted by the White Citi-
zens Council who forced them to
etake dirt roads into Memphis.
The students were Gavin Mac-
Fayden, former Shimer College
student, and Chicago students
Bill Hard, Mark Eastman, Kevin
Krown, Ed Cohn and Len Levin.
Their account of conditions in
sommerville follows.
"We were able to travel around
the town while we were there and
see the effects of the economic
squeeze' on the Negroes of the
town. Those people who had regis-
tered to vote in the coming elec-

tion, some 1,500, were denied all
credit in the town and many had
been refused food and clothing
although they were willing to pur-
chase them in the town's stores.
Stores owned by Negroes were un-
able to purchase supplies from
their usual wholesalers.
Food Short
"Although food has been coming
in from the North and from stores
in Memphis, there is a severe lack
of food in the county. The real
problem is yet to come. As the
crops come in, Negro sharecroppers
and tenant farmers are being
thrown off their land.
"There are very few legal docu.,
ments or contracts to protect
these farmers. The few contracts
which do exist will terminate on
January first, and the small
amount of existing credit neces-
sary to people who live without
money until their crops come in,
will be stopped."
