Transcript mittee. He has promised a member in the s tate education department. You can imagine what benefit that will prove to the negro with that appointment. He has promised us that he will appoint a negro to the Alcohol Control Board. He has promised to remove the hated word "colored" from the toilets and water fountains in the capitol building. He has promised that during his second term, the Adjutant General of the Military Department will be an outstanding negro military hero. He has promised us that negroes will be intergrated into all state colleges and consequently has promised an opinion to support them. He has promised to secure more than 100,000 free poll tax receipts. He has promised not to sign any legislation unless it has been approved by our own, the Hon. I. S. McClintlock. He has promised to appoint negroes to the State Pardon and Parole Board. He has promised to fill the first vacancy on the University of Arkansas Board with a worthy negro and the Chaplain of the next Arkansas legislature will be an outstanding negro. Now you hear this, we will absolutely control the next election in Arkansas and in order to show you how completely w e control this man Fabalus, we must let you in on some of the secrets which were suggested by Fabulus. It has already been suggested to us that we would find our most hostile opposition to integration in the school districts with heavy negro population and we would find little or no opposition in the school districts where there are few or no negro citizens. He reminded us that there are many school districts in northern Arkansas and western Arkansas where there are no negroes and suggested that we could move one or two negro families into each of these communities and present their children to the white schools and demand admission. And I say presently that the school board will be . . (could not hear) . . . we succeed in integrating a district, our problems will lessen. We have been given plenty of favorable publicity through our Arkansas press and the whole world has been shown every time that integration will work in the Arkansas school system. I know this sounds like a Utopian dream to you people here in this city, but it is almost an actuality in Arkansas and may be more."
