(National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and other groups pushing the matter. Senator speaks about integration and considers 'No call for integration except by these groups. Northern migration of Negroes will ease situation. Larger percentage of Negroes in North involved in crimes as compared to Southern states. Percentage of Negro crimes greater than those of whites, no matter what state. "Negro is more law abiding in the South." Would see progress if the NAACP spent money on improving morals, not integration."
