    Background: NEGROES IN AMERICA'S DEEP SOUTH ARE CONTINUING THEIR CAMPAIGN FOR EQUAL RIGHTS. IN JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, NEGROES STAGED A SERIES OF "BLITZKRIEG" DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST RACIAL SEGREGATION ON TUESDAY."
    THE PROTESTS WERE SMALL AND ORDERLY -- PICKETING OUTSIDE SHOPS AND SIT-IN DEMONSTRATION IN SEGREGATED CAFES AND RESTAURANTS. THIRTY-NINE NEGROES WERE ARRESTED.

    IN ANOTHER DEMONSTRATION, THREE NEGROES AND A WHITE WOMAN STAGED A "PRAYER VIGIL" ON THE STEPS OF JACKSON'S CITY HALL. THE MAYOR, MR. ALLEN THOMPSON, REPORTEDLY ASKED POLICE OFFICIALS TO TELL THE DEMONSTRATORS HE WAS WILLING TO DISCUSS THEIR GRIEVANCES, BUT THERE WAS NO RESPONSE FROM THEM. THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE THE ARRESTED.

    (MEANWHILE, A NEW CIVIL RIGHTS PROGRAMME DESIGNED TO CLAMP DOWN ON DISCRIMINATION AGAINST AMERICA'S INCREASINGLY RESTLESS NEGROES IS NOW EXPECTED TO BE PRESENTED TO CONGRESS NEXT WEEK.)
