NEGRO AND WHITE COUPLES EAT TOGETHER AT RESTURANT By Bill Johnson Last Saturday, Negroes David and Mary Logan met in a local Negro restaurant to eat with a white couple named Michael and Christina Burns. They were seen giggling and laughing. They were also heard talking about the recent Negro integration in Little Rock, Arkansas. Christina Burns and Mary Logan are both teachers at Morehead College. “They both have never had that much interest in each other”, says a fellow professor, “at least until last Tuesday morning”. Last Tuesday morning, both professors were heard by several other teachers about having a loud discussion about the recent Negro integration in Little Rock, Arkansas and the topic of racism and discrimination. Michael and Christina burns stuck out like a soar thumb in this restaurant. They were the only whites there.
