Vote looms in Georgia court battle

Atlanta, Georgia (ANP) –
A double-barreled legal attack on the Georgia white Democrats was mapped here Saturday by members of the Georgia Association of Democratic Clubs.

Meeting for the first time since its members were denied the right to participate in the July 4 statewide primary, the association drew up plans to seek redress through both criminal and civil prosecution in the federal courts.

The association went on record as pledging support to the Roosevelt-Truman ticket and members asserted that they would renew their efforts to secure a record vote in Georgia in the general election in November.
